ICS and bundled virus scanner: GPS problem
I bought the OT-995 1,5 years ago. System after upgrade is ICS 4.0.4, and AVG antivirus pro, version ~2.9.2 (older but premium version) was included. I had often problems with GPS receiver - working only a few minutes, quite insensitive, or GPS not accessable (missing activity symbol) until reboot. After switching off the real-time virus scanner, GPS works nearly perfect. So I changed to a freeware scanner.

Click and download the link that says One Touch Upgrade. Once it has downloaded, plug your phone into the computer and it will say 'do you want to upgrade' or something like that. It then takes around 45 minutes and it should be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich :-)

Can you charge this Alcatel through the hdmi cord? Like through your pc or w.e. my charger port is broken so I can't charge it at all, does anyone know if its expensive to fix? And it likes to shut off after ending apps or if it gets set down slightly hard (literally a tap) or after phone calls? Otherwise everything else worked fine. Haha

Hi,
I have the Alcatel onetouch 995 ultra; bought it in Holland. Now i'm going to Canada. I know there is a issue with different networks/Mhz and not al european phones will work overthere. Can Anyone tell me if this phone works in CAnada(Ontario, quebec and Nova scotia)??

(The box says this one is for GSM Network 850/900/1800/1900Mhz and HSPA/WCDMA 900/2100 MHZ but it only igives a list of european countries where this phone could be used. so i'm wondering???)

Hello! one question - have any of you experienced issue with wi-fi connection? I have big issue when connecting to wireless router (TP-Link). In the beginning i'm able to dowload information from the net but after certain time/MB-flow, the router freezes and other devices (laptops) also can't be connected to it. Whitout OT995 being connected to that router - everything is OK, but once done - the same problem every time. I tried with other smartphones (iphone 4s, Samsung gallaxy 2) - no such issue. Please help!!! Is it a router/network issue, or something specific with the OT995 hardware/settings?!?

i just found out that there is no option to turn on the led light in video camera mode. this is not good when shooting videos in low light or no light conditions. i've used many android phones and this is the first time i encountered a phone without this option. im using gingerbread 2.3.6.....
anybody here have this same concern? will an upgrade to official ICS solve this issue? please advise thanks!
