the battery is poor. i have to charge it everyday... sometimes i can not receive text messages... cannot use the other features... it sucks!
i just got this phone and one i charge it and it lasts for like two seconds! how do i get my messages to vibrate when i get them not beep
Definitely the worst phone I be ever used.... hands down no question. Touch screen unresponsive, didn't receive text messages, switched networks constantly, speaker phone worked only after a minute after the initial phone call, alarm clock is difficult shut off, and much more tweeks. Wouldnt pay 5 bucks for this nightmare phone. Have upgraded to LG optimus 2 x and love it. Worth every penny
Love it's basic android interface. Enjoyed customizing the interface. The battery can last up to three days with airplane mode on... Funny thing is that the phone hates a low memory card and apps fill the card real fast.
my phone hardely charges and when it dose it turnes on with full battery and turns off again and says it han so battery help me
phone lover?, 29 Oct 2011can you do video calls on this phone?No, It doesn't have front camera
I just got this phone! I set up the time zone from where I live, which is Guam but there is something wrong with it. For example, the time now is 11:15 PM, but when someone texts me, it says that I received it at 7:00 PM. Please help!!!
It is a lovely little phone, Android platform is excellent, and has all the bits & bobs I would like (Email, Facebook, Twitter etc), the downside is the touchscreen is poor, and the battery life is shocking! I have to charge the phone every night, and the other day, even thought I was in uni with my phone switched off all morning, the battery ran out on my way home, so I got from about 7.15am - 6pm use of my phone. Which by anyone's standards is rather poor.
I think I just like the Android platform, rather than the phone, actually...
please have got this phone i like it but the problem am having now is its bringing out and envelop or a box with an arrow that's like cumin down to hit the android sign there what is the meaning of this and what do you think i should do about this please i need the answer fast
i hve this one and for not so much cp user this phone serves me well... all of the features you look on high end phone this phone has it and it comes on a affordable price... not a waste of money at all
bad investment...got this phone through a card 6 months 0% interest intallment and now totally I regretted buying this crap...bad battery life (you need to recharge it every day)...worst mp3 audio sound (via headphones)...ever changing calendar date...most recently...can't received any text message...damn! how could alcatel make this sh@%t. not good for those with heart conditions...it will surely make your blood pressure RISE and that's for sure.
oh my gosh!!!!! it really a bad choice of getting this phone!!! such a junk!!!!!
alcatel,, where is your good reputation here?????
my gulay,,, it really a waste of money!!!!!
anon, 12 Jun 2011its nice.. but i had a problem with it.. tried playing with custom roms and when it rebooted, ... moreWow, it all sounds so complicated, all i want is a phone easy to text, call and use enternet on. Is this the wrong phone?
assenav, 02 Aug 2011hi, passed by the memo xpress the other day..may i know about the battery life of your alcatel... morethe battery life of the Ot-980 really sucks! it wont reach a day, you have to charge it again it like those cheap china imitation phone, u have to bring your charger all day!
my brand new OT-980 broke down after two weeks of use only! sent it to the service center and got it back after three(3)long months! So i had to buy a brand new phone Samsung Duo that is and i am very happy with it! the problem was the board of the OT-980 got destroyed, they had to replace it, i ask the service center personnel, the chance of it getting destroyed again is really big, but this time at least my waiting period will be shorter, so that is why they are selling the OT-980 at a very cheap prize now a days there is a kind of factory defect in that mother board. It's a really big waste i like the phone very much but it really gave me a big head ache! Alcatel where is your quality control China made phones are even better than you now, also the battery of the OT-980 drains so fast! if ever you could change my OT-980 to a new and better model i would gladly promote that unit myself!
Samaka, 21 Aug 2011If u need smthn for leisure and entertainment this cell phone wont fit at all ... if u need sm... morea headcase...don't buy if you are a first time android phone user...the battery life frustrating...a if you need to bring your mobile charger all day.good apps though.
If u need smthn for leisure and entertainment this cell phone wont fit at all ... if u need smthn for Work, this is ur best companion, just the battery issue is a problem but, it's better than any other Android ... it stays on for a full 30 hrs with phone calls, txts and full 3G usage (Email, Facebook, Twitter and Web Surfing), so it's not a cellphone for those who like life and music, it's a cellphone for those who care about work and wants to be always updated with news.
the touch screen is good for a Resistive, Wifi Receiver is working perfect but this will go down with the battery time to 25 hrs.
i've been using this device for 5 month till now & the only problem i dun like about it is it sometimes become slow in the humid and warm places, other wise it's a super Android device for a working day.
NIGHTMARE!!!! Avoid at all costs, especially the helpline when it comes to the numerous problems. Among many others it included incapability to register to network and make calls onto mobile phones (while still ringing the landlines??? with £28 credit etc.) Thinking of getting rid of. The price was good, but the phone is rubbish.
