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.
wot the hell?! u call this a fone? shouldn't a fone hav gd features???!!!!
AND WHAT DOES THIS HAVE?!?
Wow! This phone would have been a great hit!...If it was released in 1999!
But i still think this phone is great for two types of target customers; Senior citizens and people who are trying to move a step above from using a landline phone.
It just doesn't make sense releasing something like this. But i got to hand it; it DOES look cool.
This is an really weard phone you cant do anything with it only calling this phone must be cheap something like 10 dollars
OH MY GOD!!! Why dont u guys get a decent phone and then not have to face all these techincal faults, bloody hell, u shud expect that to happen with such a cheap phone
No James it has not, but for a slightly higher price (69 Euro's) there is the E801 Alcatel, with the same solid good looks and actual red keylights plus excellent MP3 player!
Man...this phone is having an alarm...stay clear...you now can buy it safely...i have one,and i like it...I had to choose between this one and an Panasonic SC3 (for my secondary network,because i have already an W810i)...who can tell me if i made the right coice ??? Thanks !!!
Please help me out with something. I love the phone and planning to buy it , but does it have alarm clock? cause i need it for alarm and making calls only. thank you
smashin design. its fabulous! darnit bill didn't i tell u to turn off the stove!
damn cool design,if Alcatel goes down,they could work as a design studio on cellphones:P
whatever the design...A god phone for 1999. it has nothing. it could be slim or small... but it really has nothing.not even the battery
