Amazing phone. Cheap and sporty. This is the best in this price category. OLED display, accelerometer, very good ringing, video ringtones, mp4 ply support, very good battery life, rubber keypad, avarege camera performance. I always use high end phones, but this alcatel is perfect this low end category. One little bad thng. orange color is ugly
Normal standby time with the odd call and message sent should be around 10-12 days, 14 days and more are possible if you turn all the network functions (like network clock and cb messages) off.
avi, 09 Jun 2009whats the stand-by battery of ot-sport ?Around 5 days, animated wallpaper and animated screensaver do take some battery hours. If you do alot of count walking and running with music, the standby might go as low as 3 days.
Expect the OT800 and the Touch screen model to be released in the summer. I personally can not wait for these phones, they seem awesome!

The OT-707 and OT-800 looks wicked. Will look for the one of them as my 6th Alcatel!
Alcatel has launched their new range of colourmania phones, it is a range that focusses on low and midrange phones. There will be 3 models however that will add some cool features to attract the tech happy people. One full touchscreen model which is essentially an excellent mp3 and video player with phone function. One 2 megapixel clamshell with innovative outside screen that can be set up to show the latest news and weather feeds for easy access. And a smartphone-like phone with full html browser, egde, qwerty keypad and memory up to 4 gb. Alcatel is on the right track for sure... all with the famous low price of Alcatel.
Also, you guys could try to use http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ , but it's often inaccurate.
Alcatel continues to make lower-end products which are high-quality and with good designs...they seemed to have found their niche here. In these tough economic times I think they will do well :)

amrdesigns, 26 Jan 2009i bought this phone ..tried it for 3 days..here're the reasons it's the worst:
- no themes to... moreAre you sure this model does not have video or sound recording function? Page 22 of the manual states that you can record a call so there's a recording feature.
Also, if you don't like the features of this phone, ALCATEL OT S680 is there to cater your needs like video and audio unlimited recording functions, touchscreen, fully working bluetooth, memory card up to 2 gb (officially but I believe it can hold up to 4 gb), and other features that the expensive phones have. OT S680 is only USD 115.00.
i bought this phone ..tried it for 3 days..here're the reasons it's the worst:
- no themes to change..the default theme is black and white..
- no video or sound recording..
- very low volume ring tones and music
- no usb cable with the package. you have to buy it
- the usb slot is covered in a way you can hardly open ..very bad
the only good thing is the very good price for those features>>> fm radio-1.3mp camera-msd memory-soundplayer-java
the guy i bought that mobile from is my friend so i talked to himand got the ot-c701 instead of that...it's much better in everything ..except the fm and 1.3mp cam
This phone is available now... and very affordable too, considering it has OLED and such... it is really cheap at less than 50 €. For more info about it email me on email@example.com
