> In reply to Smalone @ 2012-07-22 03:41 from q$27 - click to readIhave this device too. I also had the same problem, Iwas on the way to send it off, until i reestablished the factory settings (like a format), using the settings option, and the problem was fixed. It is due to internal memory shortage.Don't install updates, except perhaps for the antivirus software. Always be aware of your memory space (check by the settings option), you need to have at least 20 - 22 mb free space, and you won't have text problems again. I believe that the low price of the phone is due to short internal memory.

quite a nice phone. except the can't receive bluetooth but can send. most annoying thing is the phone can become useless whenever it's connected to whatever usb as everything is messed up. I don't bother using it when I'm charging. tethering and WiFi spot are also useless despite having downloaded all the drivers. I'd stick to samsung next time.

The other day when I got my Lumia 900 on contract I asked the store if it was possible that I could take out a contract for this phone as well, not for me but for my mom coz she's been using a Nokia 2700 classic for the past how many years and I thought she'd be better off with a bigger screen and better camera.... looks like it's going to take some time for her to get used to the Alcatel OT-990.. being in her late 60's and being used to using Nokia chocolate bar phones, this could be fun.

Still reckon this device should be given a highly prestigious award. Faults low internal memory agreed, and slower processor. But it is built so well, solid and looks and feels like a much more expensive device. I can use a much higher price device, but return to this. Currently, it is my only phone and quite happy. The screen resolution is lower than many, but even that is good as in the ratio it is it's wider than most of similar size, that aids keyboard use. Better than widescreen ratio.

there is update by alcatel for ot 990 to android 2.3.4(i.e gingerbread). use software update tool from alcatel.
the new update has improved battery performance tremendously, touch sensitivty is much much better and lot of new features.
it has not crashed until now after heavy use of internet which initially used to be a problem.

If low on internal memory, back-up your apps with a file manager, and do a full factory reset. When you do that you seem to gain a little extra space...orphaned files? You have to agree though, this phone is so well built.

This phone I keep coming back to use, the build quality is just so robust. For anyone thinking of using this device it is a bit slow, but still seems faster than other 600mhz phones. It has a very loud speaker...you will never miss a call unlike the Huawei Ascend G300, which is priced the same. Good screen, and in some places in the UK can be found at £40....total bargain.
