My first phone, on late 1998. A real brick, able to cope with multiple falls. And you could use it with two AA 1.5 V batteries if needed.
Some awful usage details though:
- a short press on the red button would cancel the message, to delete the last character you needed a long press;
- both contact names and messages could be written in CAPS only;
- no internal memory for contacts, so the contact names were limited to the SIM capacity: 80 entries and only 11 ou 16 characters!

Nevertheless, it was problably the most sucessful product ever made by Alcatel.

My first phone too. I like this brick because I could throw it in my friends without remorse. Works every time after that.

Oh my God, my first phone! Thought it was older than 1998. And the weight listed must be without the batteries. It was such a brick!

> In reply to kidalabama @ 2014-04-23 17:38 from Mfxa - click to readDid you replace the tiny fuse as well, or replace the fuse by a wire? The fuse is in series with the batteries. And there is a diode to be connected too, I remember. It is a long time since I replaced rechargeable NiCad batteries in this phone... we still use it when traveling and keep it as an extra, it is fun to see young people stare at it!

I presume this phone has been designed for NiCad batteries; in case you have used LI-Ion or such, there is a chance that the charger will not accept that. I don't have experience with these batteries.

I got one of these too, works fine!! But the standby time totally sucks! I got 3 AA batteries because the 'standard' battery was just not working good enough anymore. But when I make 2 phonecalls, 5 minutes in total the batteries are already being low:(

One of the best phones made by Alcatel, wouldnt mind of buying one again, why dont cellphone makers think of making some of these classic phones again maybe with a bit of new technologies like bluetooth camera and etc...
