this is my first time to try a touch screen phone. the screen is responsive and error free if you use the alphanumberic keyboard in typing and sending messages. i find the virtual qwerty to small, you need stylus to type without error.
dual sim active standby which is perfect. battery life is good. screen resolution is nice and readable even under sunlight. very nifty in features. the size is handy enough and comfortable to use with one hand.
i got this for 3,500 philippine peso, a steal for a dual sim, touch screen phone over here. and beside alcatel is french product. it is very good on the cheaper side phone this is.

So that's what the "D" is for. Just for the record the Model is OT-710D. Nice one son.

- Dual Sim (Both Lines are Active)
- Can read .txt document format but cannot edit.
- Nice loudspeakers
- 3.5 mm jack, headphones included (Clear audio).
- Can play mp4 files
- Camera (2MP), slightly slow but good enough (like, half sec. hang time - don't blink!)
- No Visual qwerty when texting, only the standard 12345... etc.
- No Memory card included
- Needs extra care when sending messages if both lines are active
- No stylus, ok to use your fingers to tap
- No games (strictly business kinda phone), had to install some games from the net.
To compare with LG KP500, for me i think they have the same touch response.
This is not the high end type of TS Phone but in consideration for its price its really a very nice package
capricorn, 02 Dec 2010Thanks a lot. I am going to buy this within this month because the design attracks me but can ... moreits a dual sim phone and dual standby...
when you purchase one be sure to look the box if its "alcatel ot-710d" (d) means its dual sim
don't depend too much in the internal memory,you can still afford to buy an external memory for that.having a mass memory,for example,a 16GB internal,when you reset the phone,all of your contacts,messages,etc...that is saved on the mass memory will be deleted.take it from me.i know that seriously,specially on the well known brands of mobile phone
Can somebody tell me if this phone can record a conversation when making or receiving a call?

Wow tnx.gr its not on landscape view.keys are too small.but better than using the normal keypad cause its really time consuming.try putting the input mode in simple chinese handwriting thenput it on ful sreen mode.u can write your text.fun
son, 30 Nov 2010yes corby its a dual sim and dual stand by phone. I got one myself and its great :)If this is dual sim, does this phone have tv and/or wifi feature too? Do you experience any problem lagging or hang up problem with this phone? Thanks.
