Anonymous, 19 Nov 2013How can u upgrade it to jelly bean?latest in Greece is 4.1.1
Guys i sent a mail to alcatel regarding the update and here is their reply " We have plan to ugprade ONE TOUCH 997/997D to higher Android OS which has been under development.
Please upgrade your phone with one touch upgrade which can be downloaded from the following website later:http://support. alcatelonetouch.com/global-en/upgradeSoftware
You can also refer to the following FOTA FAQ to upgrade your phone: http://www.alcatelonetouch.com...aq/fota.html Q3How can I use FOTA to make phone upgrade?
If your phone Android OS version isn't updated after the upgrade, then it means your phone doesn't support Android OS upgrade at the moment.
Should you have another request, do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for choosing Alcatel!"

Kenthusiast, 12 Nov 2013And at last, the German Alcatel community has tasted the JellyBeans,........it's being release... moreDo you think there will be any announcement or we'll have to do trial and error? I think I'll try in Dec or Jan esp coz a good data plan is needed to download that hefty custpack partition.
And at last, the German Alcatel community has tasted the JellyBeans,........it's being released via OTU. Gonna have to wait for it in Nairobi

Android 4.1 is not available as an OTA update. You need a PC and... morebut it says that it's available in germany
is it means that in other countries can't be updated?

Android 4.1 is not available as an OTA update. You need a PC and the program Alcatel OneTouch upgrade. A backup is recommended.
Nice phone, but problem is with locally finding accesories and there is no official update. I wish it was like google nexus. Update released today, your phone prompts you to update.
