Well, i guess i've found my first bug.. Can't turn off Bluetooth... when i try to switch it off, phone restarts.
also, i can't install pcsuit correctly, erro 1603 in the middle or smt.
question: can i install java games manualy - not by downloading them?
The same problem regarding 1 GB card happened to me. Mine showed nearly the same size, i.e. 318 MBs of a free space. Get yourself 2 cards, each containing 512 MBs. They should work.
My card's manufacturer was APACER. Yet it seems to be the older firmware's problem.
i love my OT-S853 phone, the only problem is that u cannot tansfer files and or video clips via bluetooth.non availability of 12 or 24 hour format, the screen is totally black when in power saving mode.but ot s853 has quality sound with tweeter, and with vivid colo display....
If you live in the netherlands you order it at www.protel.de I think.
@Elli: That's not good. If I use a 1 GB memory card the phone shows me 999MB of free space - that's normal I think ;)
My IMEI is 35669800073295-3V
i've searched for older posts, and no one has like this number.. weird
Well, I've bought a 1GB minisd Sandisk, and my alcatel shows only 312MB of it.. is there smt wrong?? :[
GOT MY S853 2 HOURS AGO, AND THE FIRST IMPRESSION IS: WOW!
I'm sooo happy, hope it will work flawlessly
now i gotta buy a memory card..
Where did you get this phone? If it's Pixmania, start searching for the repair centre to update your firmware. Mine's down, HUNG also has the same problem - these are the phones that carry the earlier firmware versions. PROTEL meanwhile sells the later versions that work fine.
Otherwise it might be a problem of a card. Try another one. My Alcatel worked fine with the 512 MB card. Sometimes it stalled when I was trying to use too many functions at the sime time, but overall performance was satisfactory.
I've got no problems - not with 256MB, 512MB or 1 GB - no problems, everyone is working fine.
Anyone has problem with 512 mini SD card?
buoght it yesturday, put music on it, in hte beguinning it was working but now whenever it go in the music menu its freezes and i have to 'reboot'. And then it reboots alone 10 times...
dunno, my bro bought it for me, maybe around US$290. package: phone+batt, free mini sd 128mb, cd software pcsuite 4.17 (u MUST MUST MUST read PCSuite417 USBHelp from www.alcatel.dk/mobile/index.jhtml for installation), usb cable, stereo earphone+ music controller, black rubber hand band with alcatel logo, charger (usb socket), no BT
If u fail in replying sms, check the sms sending expiration setting, maybe u use never delete, try change the sending expiration for sms from never delete to another ( i suggest 1 week). it solved my sms replying problem.
Please tell me the price of this phone when bought it here in Manila, Philippines and what are the contents of the package. Does it include bluetooth headset, software, mini SD card, etc. I have not seen it here in Cebu yet. Thanks.
Have u tried to download opera mini for Ot s853 ? if not.... www.mini.opera.com.
....awsome for browsing by hand set ....
Sorry, i buy this phone in manila; philiphine, For Jakarta center try Mansyur HP: 0818801886. But last time i call he said s853 wasn't ready. Maybe you better wait indonesian version cos philipine version doesnt have indonesian language menu and t9, only english and spanish.
there still some bugs in s853 so maybe you want to wait for s860. See:wapzon.com/web/devicedetail.asp?Pid=8860&Bid=2

In my country it is absolutely necessary to add the country code before the number, i.e. write thae whole international telephone number. Just get used to entering the whole numbers with + into the directory and the problem's solved.
With my s853, replying incoming sms often fail, especially to some network but if u remove the sms to draft and send it again, or modify and send it again it works. Anyone find this problem and manage to solve it?
Also this phone often fail to send sms to numbers with country code ( + ).
Anyone find this problem and manage to solve it?
Sorry MPU that I was not on Skype, I just read your message, anyway I will be online tomorrow afternoon/evening. I could answer your questions then, however I can answer one right now. I also have a black standby screen but you see that's not really a bug it is just part of the phone's software protocol. The C552 has the same thing a black standby screen. So it is not really a bug. Maybe it is a bit of carelessness of the software designers of the new range of phones.
See you tomorrow then.
