Capricorn, the installation of the usb driver is very easy and self explanatory, there is no need for a CD or whatever to install it. On Windows XP service pack 3 when you plug in the phone into the PC and choose "mass storage" on the display (when you have a memory card inserted) the phone will ask the computer for an installation, just click automatic installation on your PC when the message box comes up and the installation should be commencing. Really easy and straight forward.
J, 26 Sep 2009Yes when you plug the phone into the PC it begins to charge automatically :)Thanks J.

At least I know that when I have this phone and have put mp3 or video files in memory card, I will just a card reader. But anyway, can we charge this phone via usb or still we can't?

Can you please tell me when will it be released in Asia-Pacific especially in the Philippines. When I first saw it in the website, I was very astounded by its appearance, and now I want it. But here in our country, Alcatel phones have a bad image coz for some it looks like "chinaphone". The leading ones are Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Motorola. Wish it will be released now...haiszt...

When I used this with my PC(Also Windows XP), I did have to install the USB driver to get it to work properly.

I agree with Skippy that this is a great phone.
I've had it for a few days now and I can say its a very nice phone. It has a beautiful design with a great touchscreen and LED touch panel.
The music player is quite good and the speaker has a decent volume. There is also a FM radio with RDS. A USB cable and headphones are supplied so you can use the alcatel pc suite and transfer files easily.
The camera is also quite good for a 1.3 megapixel, however there is no self portrait mirror or flash but there is video. The web browser is also fairly good with most websites loading quickly.
There are two things wrong with GSMarenas specs. 1st there IS a FM radio and 2nd there IS NO accelerometer.
Overall this is a good phone and is one of the cheapest touchscreen phones in the UK. It is much better than the T-mobile Vairy Touch(which I have used before) as the touchscreen seems to be more responsive. I would definately recommend this phone :)
Thanks for all the nice feedback on this phone, sounds like a real hit ;) keep it up people! For info and comments on this unit email me on email@example.com.
simon, 17 Sep 2009according to tesco it has an fm radio but gsm arena says not....The specifications stated here is not as updated as the specifications stated in www.my-onetouch.com - Alcatel's official website. So please visit the official website for the correct details.
Hi Everyone, I bought my phone last week at Tesco and i'm totally smitten with it.
I just thought i'd let people know that Tesco have a deal on at the moment, spend £30 on shopping and get £20 off a mobile phone.
My Alcatel only cost £30.
Great phone and really happy.
I bought this phone from Orange and I can confirm that this does have an FM radio :)
nice little phone. i am happy with it for the price. my criticism however is that why do these phone companies (ALcatel and LG - whose LG phone i returned to the store today to swap for this one.. why do these companies skimp on providing a USB lead with the product that can connect it to a PC? The lead must only cost peanuts to them to supply and yet they omit to do this. Luckily I had an old one lying around from an ancient VGA camera. But jeeez, It is POOR!!!! service from ALcatel.
