Thats all. It will use your mem card as storage.
Problem: my mem card is not visible when i connect through usb and mount.

SO, others are telling that this phone is rubbish? Don't think this is rubbish, well yes, the internal memory, battery are weak, but we can still root and upgrade this phone. Some say they rooted this phone and the rooting is successful. They said the internal memory increased to 150 mb to 2 gb without any problems of some sort,like lagging and etc.well thats a miracle in this type of phone.
Second is the battery, well we need to install a battery saver for it. But, overall this phone is great, but needs improvement. There are also commented that this phone has fast browser, connection, and etc. Don't regret buying this phone. I KNOW ALCATEL WILL CONTINUE TO IMPROVE IN THE FUTURE.

"Can anybody help me? i have rooted my phone successfully twice via bluerai28 tutorials..( . thanks to him i rooted my Alcatel OT-918N.. just like that... i was so happy i did it right following his tutorial to the letter... but THEN... after a few hours of usage.. i've notice that Wifi is very Slow and i cant sync to my Gmail, PlayStore, Mail, etc concerning the use of Internet via Wifi... after 1 week.. its still the same... connection is on/off it connect for a while and not for a very long while.. so i decided to "unRooT" it coz i couldnt use the wifi... (not using wifi in a phone is a useless phone) so i did it via OTU (One Touch Upgrade).. it wiped out my data and Completely restored my Alcatel 918N to its brand new state..

THen after a while again... having a phone that is unrooted makes me feel powerless over my phone i cant tweak it if i want it...So i decided again to root it and carefully followed the tutorial if i miss something that caused the first rooting to be a failure... so i have sucessfully once again perfectly rooted my phone... anyways the main reason i ROOTed My phone is to delete the freakin SHutter sound when snapping a picture... (im not a Pervert by the way, i like to take picture in church and some quite places,and having that freakin shutter sound disturb other people.. so that's my reason why i Root..) enough about that justifying myself... i immediately check my wifi if i can sync and all... sadly i still have the same problem...

i am begging to the administrator, MOD/ROM Master, TEchies and technicians... pls help me on this... email add is THANKYOU in advance

TO Bluerain28 i dont know what went wrong... tsk"
