Do i have to buy data on mt MTN line to get that done????? Please, i need your help.

    • Thank you, Appreciate. What error did you get when trying to sign in? are you sure your username and password are correct? try signing in on a computer to test the gmail account.

    • This is quite funny, is the call button pressed down automatically? The best way to fix this is just flash or factory reset the device, Always back up before doing anything.

  38. Hello Larious,
    I appreciate your your efforts, but you never gave an answer to my question above
    I just got Infinix hot2 few weeks back, the only problem I notice is that I can’t save a file on the phone memory it tells me ” the file cant be created. and it does not give another option of saving to my SD card. Even the old files on my SD I can’t transfer them to Phone memory either. What can I do as this seems to be my only issue with the phone?

  49. Hi Larious,
    What is the solution to a hot 2 that won’t boot beyond the logo after updating to andriod 6. Pls what can I do?
    Secondly how do I get to the system recovery, I’ve tried different ways.

    • Its obvious your device is stucked in download mode because of an error during updating the device. hold the power button and volume up key and home button to access recovery mode.

  50. hello… I cant view my videos, pictures. I noticed it after upgrading to the 6.0 android automatic update. However, it seems ive almost exhausted the 16gb the phone came with. it remains 500mb. I think this could be the problem. now I cant access it. but it shows its full. how do I delete or free up space when I cant even access it?. thanks

    • Check if you can access your files using the guest mode account, The marshmallow 6.0 has some bugs error and its yet to be fixed. But using the guest mode account helps you access your files.

  51. What actually annoy me about my hot 2 is my contacts are always coming out double, what can i do stop dat and also how can one delete contacts at once or select contacts you want to delete instead of deleting one after the other? Pls reply asap..thanks

    • To fix that, just select one contact location to display your numbers, you can choose either show phone contacts or your email contacts. just choose one. this fix the double contacts displaying.

  52. my memory card is full and i want to save my files to the internal memory but itb cant , how can i change may storage to phone memory

    • Go to settings and click on storage settings, where you can select storage location. or just copy all your files from your memory card to phone memory using your system.

  53. Good day, my pictures just stopped showing and the phone just started requesting for an sd card before I’m able to snap. what I’m I suppose to do?

  54. hi.. pls i cant access the phone memory on infinix hot2…. please i need ur help, bery urgent….. will b glad to get a reply frm you. thanks

  55. I recently upgraded my HOT2 to Marshmallow 6 and all my files are inaccessible but they are still on the phone cos the size is still evident. what do i do to get the files back, they are also not accessible on a PC.

  56. Good job bro……. my own problem is that the screen is divided into two. upper division is bright while the lower part is a little bit dark. sometimes it does appear some vertical lines especially when turning it ON and when watching videos.

  57. my infinix hot 2 was perfectly OK before I upgraded it,and now that I do so,my pictures, music,videos are contact are not displaying names as well.I tried to Google to solution but its not here.pls abeg if u know the solution tell me pls

  58. Afta dwnlding n installin the system update,my fone version moved frm 5.1 to 6.0 but when de power button x pressed it takes a lonh tym fr de screen to light up

  59. hi. I updated my android system and now I cant access my pictures on the user but I found them at the guest and now I can’t take pics on the user since its demanding for an SD card but I still have space on the phone’s memory. what do i do about this. I’ve read through all the comments but u have not given any help on my issue yet. pls help because I’m a bit frustrated about this. wanted to delete the guest but don’t know what will happen if I do that

    • So sorry about that, its obvious the user profile is limited or restricted, are you sure the guest profile isnt the real user account? if you can access your files and run operations on the device with the guest profile, just change the guest profile to user profile. If that didnt work, just backup all your files and factory reset or format your device.

  60. Hi, ever since I upgraded my OS on my infinix x510, my contacts automatically save to google account and not my phone. Then numbers already saved on the phone memory are not coming up.
    Please help! How can I change my default setting to my phone memory?

  61. Hello Bro, I just got the Infinix Hot 2 and it’s working just fine. The issue I have is that the SIM 2 is only set for 2G (no way to set it for 3G). What can I do?

  62. Pls any time I try to download or take a pic an insufficient memory pop up whiles I just used about 1gig of my memory. Don’t know what to do

  63. Errm sorry m having an ish with my phone in the sense that when I delete certain things on my phone like pictures and all that when I switch off my phone and turn it on I’ll see them again please what could be the problem…😢

    • Its obvious you might have played with the call settings and probably set a limit when making calls. Kindly go back to your call settings and check the options you enabled.

  64. The reason why its asking you to insert SD card before you can snap a picture is because the storage location for images or pictures is set save on the SD card, and if you dont have an Sd card installed you would always get that message. So the solution is changing the storage location to save images or pictures on the phone memory instead of SD card. this can be done from the camera settings or phone storage settings.

  65. hello l have updates my infinix x510 it still 5.1.1 and now it not give me option to select sim. than in calling account it not allowed me to select Ask,every time pls help me.

    • To download your device, you need to first back up all your files and data, then download the android 5.1.1 rom from the infinix website, flash your device and install it.

  66. Some of my files are always missing,especially pictures and music,some pictures are not showing and couldn’t find and play some of music I received and downloaded

    • Go see a phone technician, your keypad might be faulty and needs change. Or you backup all your files and flash or factory rest your device, it might also be a virus issue or so.

  67. Hi, please my phone is not reflecting on the system. I tried the USB debugging you mentioned up there, same thing. And also I want to move the pictures and videos I view on ES explorer so I can see them in google photos, is that possible?

  68. Please, I upgrade my hot 2 OS and ever since then if I called any number stored on the phone or any number stored on the phone called me, It won’t show as a number that I have stored on the phone, it will just show as an ordinary number.

  69. Hi larious. Thanks for your help so far. So on my former Android, I could copy or cut files from my SD card and paste on my device memory but I can’t do that with the infinix hot 2. Also the camera keeps telling me to insert a memory card before I can snap pictures but I have enough space on my device memory and it wouldn’t even Lee me access the camera settings. What do I do?

    • Your most welcome. Thanks. What version is your Infinix hot 2? is it the 1gb version or 2gb version? The other option to fix the camera issue is just to back up all your files and factory reset or format/flash the device. then restore your files and lets see if it fix the issue.

    • This is a very strange issue sir, am yet to experience what your implying. But i recommend you save all your files and back up the device, then factory reset and flash the device. This might be due to virus infections that made your camera malfunction.

  88. please i just bought infinix hot 2. my external SD card is full but I have enough space on my phone memory but when I open camera to take a pic, it says SD card full. how do I switch camera storage to phone memory? also, the phone came with Google chrome preinstalled so when I download anything with it, it tries to go to SD card which is full. how do I change download storage to phone memory. thanks

  89. Can anyone help me out. i have Infinix hot note pro my mobile gallery is not working as i deleted whatapp data from gallery also was not working whatsapp than i remove whatsapp but still my mobile gallery is not working please anyone help me what to do?

    • To view full screen, check your video settings, or your notification tab t disable auto rotate. You can easily upgrade to 6.0 via your settings, check updates.

    • I just got informed about the new 6.0 updates that fixes all the hot 2 issues. just click on updates on your device. download and install the march update.

  97. My cellular network type shows….GPRS. does it mean its a fake and I also can’t delete photos or videos directly from the gallery….says I need permission of some sort. Pls what do I do?

    • You need to use the user account to be able to delete stuffs. The network GPRS type can be changed in your network settings..GPRS is also the same as 2G.

  109. Dear Larious,

    My phone wont come on. I’ve removed the battery about 3 times to hard reset but it still wont come on. It shows Infinix for a split second like it’s coming on but then it goes dead again. How do I resolve this issue? This phone is barely 8 months.

    • Sorry about that sir, its obvious your device Os has crashed. You need to reload the factory default Os. Hold down the power button and the home button with the volume up button to enable you factory reset the device.

  110. Hello Larious. I use the infinix note 2… the one with the 1gb memory. my issue with it is the way my BBM keeps closing/disconnecting by itself. What ive been used to from using the BB is that the messenger is always opened so you actually hear the notifications when you sent messages. But on the phone, once i open the messenger and then minimize it to go do something else on the phone, i dont get messages on it until i notice that my phone has been quiet for so long and i then go and re-open the BBM before all the messages start popping in. Most times i have missed very important messages that required my immediate response. Pls can i do? Thank you.

    • Am so sorry about that..Well the issue isnt from your hot 2 but from the bbm messenger. Also did you installed any apps that hibernates your applications? because its obvious the bbm app is hibernated, until you open the app that is when you start getting pings. Kindly check your apps and remove bbm from the hibernated apps. or simply deleted the bbm and install a new version.

  111. Hey Larious.My infinix hot 2 refuse to pick calls and if i call with it and they receive it,it wouldn’t show neither will i hear any voice.What can I do please.

  112. hi,when i take pic with my phone …..they are not supported they read “cant open with this format’ what do i do?

  113. I’m using the Opera Mini social bundle on my Hot 2, but I can’t download anything from Opera Mini, just browsing

      • Hi Mr larious have been been looking forward for forum and I really appreciate your contribution.plz sir I have this problem with my infinix hot 2, anytime I send message it always says not sent tap try again. Even though I tried to resend it the problem still persist & it’s frustrating. Pls kindly reply for the solution.

        • You want LKT to have a forum here? The issue has to do with your service center number for your network, go to your message settings and click on sms service center, if you dont already for the sms center number by default. You can use this for Glo: +2348050001501 and for Airtel: +2348020000009. Once you input the correct network sms center number your messages would be sent and delivered.

    • You need to force your device to only use 3G. The H+ and 3G are the same.. Same speed and all. To force your device to use only the 3G, you need to dial this code to take you into the Mtk engineering mode where you locate the radio settings and force 3G usage. The code is *#*#3646633#*#

  114. pls bro, I can’t assess my phone memory and SD card on my laptop and it’s as a result of upgrade of d Android in my infinix x510 I tried debugging techniques as u rightly instructed but d USB option doesn’t show on my phone anytime I connect it via my laptop. pls wat should I do.

    • If you have enabled the debugging mode on your android, your device should show on your pc. its either your usb cord that is bad or your pc usb port. Try using a different usb cord.

  115. Comment:I have enabled d USB debugging by touching about phone 7times den turning it on on d developers option also installed d es file explorer BT still can’t view my phone memory on my pc

  116. Comment:pls I just bought an infinix hot 2 inserted my SD card and its saying unmounted, I reboot d phone but same issue. someone asked me to go to settings >SD card and format but I’m scared I’ll loose all my Information on d SD. pls wat do I do?

  119. How to block my stoen Infinix HOT2 X510 phone using IMEI number? Pls get back to me as soon as possible, i’ll be greatful.

    • Am sorry there is no free way to do such, Even using your imei number, you can’t block the stolen device. Currently i don’t think its possible here in Nigeria.

  120. My infinix camera is not working.I can’t take videos and snap pictures. When I snap,there will no image.Please kindly help me fix the problem.

  121. Comment: thanks larious, my Infinix hot note which has two Sims just changed all of a sudden to one unbelievably, I tried interchanging the sim cards,but the sim one port doesn’t work, how do I fix this?

    • Are you certain the other sim slot isnt damage? If one sim slot isnt working, there is nothing you can to except to give a phone technician to help you fix

  123. hello. ihave only 1 problem with my infinix zero 2. mood swing. i can go for 2days without a problem then suddenlya whole day of SIM CARD 1 not installed/not recognised and sim card 2 not installed. i then have to start from pin and switch on data again continuously

  124. Comment: boss what’s the difference btw infinix hot 2 and infinix hot note 2 and which one would you recomend for me to buy.
    I have never use an an andoid phone before. I’m a bb fan but it sucks using bb now. Thanks

  125. By reading people’s comments, you’ve corrected many things for me.
    But remaining three issues you never touched. My phonebook doesn’t show if the stored numbers are either in sim 1, 2 or phone storage.
    The incoming calls doesn’t specify if is on sim 1 or 2.
    And, the phone numbers and names in my phonebook disappears if I stores a new one. It is very embarrassing to always ask your mother “who is this” please help me out.

    • Thanks for reading through. About the phonebook, you need to check your contact settings to show where your numbers are stored either via your email or sims or on the phone. For the calls, go to settings, sim cards settings and select ask everytime for calls and sms. Have you updated your device to the latest software update? that should fix all your issues.

  126. Dear larious, I have problem with my phone,things have been popping on my phone something like porngraphic site,some are battery warning or things to download etc. How will I stop it.

    • Am sorry, your device is loaded with bloatware apps that shows adverts. The only way to fix that is to backup your files and factory reset or load a new operating system.

  127. Hello, my phone wouldn’t just locate service. I just don’t know why. It’s not on airplane mode. If I try to dial a contact it says turn on SIM and I tap it to turn on SIM but it doesn’t. It’s a two SIM phone both are saying no service. Please what can I do to regain back the network. I have used my infinix for over a year and I have never experienced such before.


  128. Please my infinix X510 is always switching to radio when am listening to music with headphones pls assist me thank you

  129. Comment:Please i have about 15GB available storage but I can’t receive files or take a picture please I need your help

    • You need to setting the default storage options to be on the free available 15Gb storage. Have you updated your device to the latest software version? Try using the guest account to see if you can recieeve files and take pictures.

  130. Very helpful article. My problem with phone is the battery low notification sound. It is so annoying and startling especially when in quiet place. Can I change it in the settings?

    • Set it as default and save it which enables it not to ask you again. But if that continues, try and update your device software to the latest update.

  136. Hi. My owner user mode has a problem, I cant take photos or can’t view pics, in fact, they don’t exist, though in the storage, their space can be seen. I also cannot delete them. It refuses.
    In the guest user. Everything is okay , I can view my pics too, and take photos. I also have new apps there…

  137. Comment: please the picture quality of my infinixX510 hot 2 is’s not clear like most android phones..please what do I do to change the camera settings to a better one

      • Hi. My owner user mode has a problem, I cant take photos or can’t view pics, in fact, they don’t exist, though in the storage, their space can be seen. I also cannot delete them. It refuses.
        In the guest user. Everything is okay , I can view my pics too, and take photos. I also have new apps there…

        • If you do a reset you would lose all your files both on the guest and owner account, you can backup your contacts via your google account, so i advise you to back up all your files and reset the device.
