I purchased my Cat S60 November 2016. I noticed when I use the phone for viewing videos or playing games or just on it for some time on the internet, the area where the camera is gets very hot. I have to stop using it so it can cool down. Is this normal as other previous phones(not a Cat phone model) I had did not do this. Is it a concern, should I send it for assement. Also the silver cover for my charging terminal fell off and is lost, only the black rubber is left. Is there a guarantee on this as it is not even 6 months old.
Pilamore, 08 Mar 2017Does anyone know how to enable second sim? I bought US variant and it only comes with one IMEI... moreIf CAT themselves told you that you cannot enable the second sim then you probably should NEVER:
1. Customize Firmware based on the Manufacturing Firmware
2. Open the Phone and short some pins (if necessary) to update Firmware
3. - and Ever Customize Firmware based on the Manufacturing Firmware

The phone feels solid and the thermal imaging seems pretty accurate, but that is where it ends.
The phone is buggy and feel more like a refined prototype than a production ready phone. I have had various app crashes and a few restarts. When watching YouTube videos through the app, the video and audio goes out of sync.
I have also not been able to connect to 4g networks.
If you are used to a flagship phone, the CAT's screen quality and touch responsiveness will be something to get used to.
Cat and the guys who built the phone for them will need to get their act together and put out some updates!
Ron, 28 Feb 2017you should go back to your reseller, they should be able to help you.. I had already contacted reseller, they say it is international version without warranty. The question is how a "reputed" company called Caterpillar Inc. misled consumers saying CAT S60 is 5meters water proof but the fact is, if it is immersed in 200 mm depth of fresh water for 1 minute the phone is completely damaged. This not cheating, people should be aware not to get misled from :reputed" company
Has anybody had the SIM cover spring open after a small drop ?
If so which version of the latch have you ?
I have this one, which has opened:
Has anybody got this type which looks more secure ? :
I am from India and I brought this CAT S60 in Nov. 2016 and two days back, first time i used it under fresh water for video recording for just 1 minute, water depth was only half meter, after taking it out all buttons are not working, screen was 'ON" for some time with water marks under it, now the screen is also not working, phone is water damaged now, like a scrape unusable set. I wrote to CAT company and they say since they dont have any official presence in India they cant do any thing. Can any one guide me to repair my phone. Since CAT company and its product are all reputed, I made a biggest mistake in believing them that CAT s60 is water proof for up to 5meters depth, and now I am paying for it.
Phone is overall good. Responds fast. Inspite of size and weight, it´s easy to operate single handed (that of course will depend on your hand size).
The cons I found so far: Overheats while engaging location and 3g/4g signal is low sometimes causing screen cover (the plastic film) to tend to peal off but nothing to worry.
Also the usb charging tab and headphone tab seem to be a little fragile, so I don´t know how long will they last, specially the usb connector wich is the one I use the most. Battery last reasonably well all day long, but I found it will depend on the strength of 4g signal.
Today I had an awkward issue, when the phone all of a sudden shut down. No power key would work. Only a red light tilting while connecting the charger. I read somewere that you should press the reset button (below the sd /sim card slot tab) which happens to be a tiny little hole, where you need to insert something thin and strong enough not to be bent, but also to press the reset button (i.g. those gadgets that come with Iphone to remove the sim) ; had to press it once and debug mode started, i selected reboot now and the phone boot again and was able to use it as nothing had happened, so far so good. Hope this won´t repeat.
All in all great phone.
