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!"
So now did anyone try to update thru z PC?? Any luck am from Egypt and waiting for the update too been using this phone for almost a year now, good phone

Android 4.1 is here for 997D
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.
