Ntarah, 29 Apr 2013Thank! your overall assessment of the phone?

I think it's awesome that it can play some demanding 3d games like Dead trigger which I've already installed :-).
I've also been able to solve the issue I had where when one sim is connected to the internet the other becomes unavailable. There's a setting I had changed under 'wireless & networks' called 'GPRS transfer'. It must always be set to 'call prefer'.
Another important thing to note is that when two 3G sim cards are inserted you have to choose which one you'll use for 3G connections, only one can be used for that.
Also it's important to get an SD card as only 1gig is available to the user.
all the best!

The exception is I've been experiencing an issue where if airtel's data connection is active on EDGE the other sim safaricom)becomes unavailable/busy. however this issue disappears when the data connection for for sim one (airtel)switches to 3G or is switched off.
I didn't see a white model when buying mine but you could consult with the sales people at Fone Express.
About the ringtones, I've been able to select a song I saved in the internal storage as a ringtone. Haven't installed an SD card yet.

Other features of the phone that are not mentioned here;
phone can be connected to an hd tv with an mhl adaptor,
it has otg which means that you can connect a usb device such as keyboard or a mouse with an otg cable,
the phone has DLNA.
2 months with heavy use... what can I tell you? 189 euros for a device nothing to envy to Samsung or Apple, good and bad, black and white... we use our brain only in on off...
Hey there,I'm from Kenya and bought this phone at fone express about a week ago. It's a great device for the price ( about 210 euros). Below is my summary of the pros and cons:
+ beautiful screen with punchy colors, sufficient brightness (usable outdoors), large at 4.3" (4.1" usable), text remains sharp despite the wvga resolution (217ppi)
+excellent build quality; solid casing with no squeak or flex. The back panel has a matte/rubbery finish that is textured. Overall it feels much more expensive than its price.
+1GB of ram allows plenty of multitasking; most of the time don't need to kill apps when switching between them
+so far the games I've installed play well with no lag. these include temple run, fruit ninja and raging thunder 2. comments from around the net suggest it plays dead trigger and shadowgun too. Asphalt 6 comes included though you have to download the apk files
+8mp camera produces nice photos for the price. you have to be careful not to be shaky though, image stabilization is pretty bad.
+smooth 720p HD video playback
+decent earphones included, sound quality is average
+battery lasts 1.5 days with average use:moderate gaming,3g connected throughout, moderate whatsapp, gtalk, facebook and twitter usage
+internet browsing is very fast
+alcatel has promised a jelly bean update scheduled for mid 2013
- transition effects are a bit laggy when entering the app drawer for the first time after long idle times. but after that initial lag it's usually very fast and fluid.
- camera has no optical image stabilization. for best image quality you have to be absolutely still
- cannot play full HD videos. mx player can play full HD videos but with a lot of stuttering.
someone on this thread had complained about not being able to install apps bigger than 5mb in size. I haven't encountered that problem; almost all apps I've installed are bigger than 5mb e.g. opera mobile, whatsapp and temple run.
this device offers excellent value for the price. I couldn't find any other device with the same features and specs for the price. will keep you updated on any new developments ;-)
I'm using this smartphone for a couple of days . Definitely it offers much more that it currently cost . Stunning internet speed, very good construction ,the best camera on Alcatel device so far & honest for its range ,very good screen w/ perfect viewing angles and a tiny (unfortunately not modifiable) white notification led.
The only drawback is the battery performance ,though it charges pretty fast.
I'm using it for half a year. There is only one problem. If you turn on data conection or camera while using bluetooth headphones, sometimes you must turn of and then on bluetooth on phone to have a signal in earphones... And it helps only when earphones is on.
Hi i am the OT-997D user for 1 month.
Could anyone facing this problem,
my phone turn off by itself when put in my
pocket about 1 minute each time.
