ringtone volume to low, when you buy online all info such as above drawback should be clearly stated.
I mean on the screen, there's a character always pop up, like hitting me with a virus.
it's da best phone in term of texting and call. Good phone. the vibration is more than other phone, louder than ringtone.
Very very bad! But, Cheap.
Very very low price.
Too much errors.
Too many hanging times.
Its a very basic phone. Its more suited for voice calls rather than text messages. Its the perfect phone for misers.
Good phone considering its low price tag in Manila Philippines (1,400pesos). Good phone for texting and calling, especially in this country where robbery of celfones is rampant. At least you wont literally be crying out loud should your phone get stolen if you had this as your phone. My only complaint might be its ringtone. It is not loud enough. Other than than, everything is value for money.
This phone is great but don't expect much from a low cost phone at 1250 your got a bnew phone with good voice quality and loud ringtone. It comes with a headset also. Good basic phone for those who just want to call and text.
I agree this little phone is just great for calling and texting. Its brothers the E105&205 will be available as CDMA phones too (for US carriers). It supports up to 5 connected SMS messages.
Can't do anything with it? I can go to a country with GSM 800-1900, pop in a SIM, and call and text.
Cam? Why would I want vacation pics on a low-resolution cell phone cam? MP3? Why? I've got an iPod.
Mobile video and whatnot? Get a life!
The phone is cheap, looks good, performs well and is a great phone for use outside North America. I've used this on a couple of trips, and have no complaints at all.
hi! just like to ask, how many characters does this phone have for SMS? is the keypad rubberized? i'm still thinking if i will buy this as my secondary phone. will be using it for e-loading. need help!
Ok now tell me why is this stupid? Because it is a perfectly sensible and affordable prepaid phone that does the job it was meant to do... make calls and send messages! If I were willing to buy a cheap minimalistic phone I sure would have picked this one.
Yes this is a phone! To the fullest meaning of the word infact, it is a PHONE to make PHONE calls and not to shoot DVD quality movies or to use it as a crappy organizer or to show of how great the crap sound of so called mp3 phones is... atleast Alcatel delivers what they promise, when they say entry level phone, it really is a cheap and simple phone, when they say music phone with great sound, they deliver great sound with the S853. Cheap phone with a good solid mp3 player... there is the E801. While this is just as it is marketed... just a small, cheap and robust little phone. Nothing more nothing less. Perfectly fine for 40 euro's.
