Don't, i repeat DON'T even think of buying the alcatel 511!!! This is the worst mobile phone I ever had the misfortune of buying!! I already changed it 3 times as it just switches off by itself, and they don't want to give me a different model. So apart from this being a bad phone, alcatel also offer bad service!
The 511 has excellent features, but is the most unrealiable phone I have ever purchased. This is my third phone that just goes dead on me. alcatel refused to replace it with an upgraded model. What kind of service is this? I would be embarrassed if my company were to supply such a product. This has been very frustrating for me. I just need a phone that works. My previous Nokia's and Ericsson gave me no hassels.
This fone is the smallest and lightest on the market. The menu system is easy to use al though 2 things that can be annoying are the navi key and every message you send it saves a copy meaning you have to keep deleting them. Overall the best fone i have ever had!!!!!
Don't, I repeat DON'T ever buy this phone. It is a disaster!! I changed it FOUR times but they are all defective. Alcatel agents are bull shit they gave me no suitable answer!!
I own an Alcatel 311. But I would like to change it for a 511 with the addition. Please contact me.
this phone sucks.. too little, too many bugs, too weak construction. but i love the backlight ;)
I have an alcatel OT 511, and i want to say to the people that the scroll button already had problems to me.
does anybody know how to activate the FM radio on OT511 ???
n.... i've locked in menu code, anyone can help me to unlocked it, because i don't know the code
I have alcatel 511, It's a great phone, not perfect but very, very good for it's price. Does anyone know where to but the radio kit ? It looks like alcatel guys did not put out a release date for it.
As for the phone, if u find it at a price close to 8210 go for the 511. If it's more expensive than that go for one of Nokia latest models. One more thing, 511 I think has many bugs. So if u can go for the 512, I think that's why they put out a new model so soon.
Whenever I try to get a balance (vodafone pay as you talk) by using the usual *#1345# it comes up 'warning unkown language'. Can anyone tell me how to get a balance up without having to listen to all the gumph on the creditline?????
1. the sound is very inferior. you may record memo and compose but they come out harsh and vey uneven loudness
2. there is no way you can put a stored phone number in your SMS. you must type the number yourself if you want to send it vis SMS (very frustrating)
3. the okay button misfires. sometimes two to three presses before it works
4. the manual is badly written. there are things that you can and cannot do that are not documented.
It's a pity because for its looks, i'd give it a 10!
Alcatel OT511/512 better than T191. Got many cool functions in 511/512 and it has many features too.
