just got this phone like three days ago. after setting up the volume via engineering mode, everything was clear and crisp. even though this is just a hand me down phone from my older brother i say it does perform well.
solution on how to get greater volume is allready explained in the previous posts. Now, about upgradeing the opera:
1) on your alcatel ot 806, go to m.opera.com, using the preinstalled opera browser
2)choose "other download options"
3)choose link "options for opera mini (number of the current version)", select code - signing certificate
4) choose verising
5) and finaly download the current version and enjoy
video plays nicely, but you should have at least 2 bars of signal, I've got opera mini 6 and it's way nicer than bolt =)just love this phone
ps. sorry if my English is somewhat broken, I'm not a native speaker =)
Babu, 31 Mar 2011I just bought this today from Big Bazaar. Seems nice. Is there some kind of PC suite for this ?Babu,
You can download the PC Suite from:
Bought this phone on 2April,2011 in India at Rs. 4500/-
a) WiFi connects with no hassles & works very fast. No connectivity drops.
b) Battery is superb. With WiFi on and continuous heavy browsing and calling, it lasted for about 34 hours.
c) Most of your favourite apps are already installed, like Facebook and Twitter.
d) Opera Mini gets the job done, but since it is not upgradable, it lacks what other browsers like BOLT are offering.
e) The Alcatel OT-806D is a dual sim model, where both sims remain in active state.
f) Display is clear and bright. There are brightness settings for custom adjustment.
g) Music player & radio are good.
h) Call quality is very good.
i) The UI is very responsive.
a) Since the touchscreen is resistive, its not very responsive, but definitely better than the competition in this range.
b) Camera quality is not good. Grains appear in even modest lighting conditions.
c) Video player downloads and plays video from Alcatel portal only. Also, I could not get the streaming to work. Every time I tried streaming urls, it said 'Connection Error'. I guess I may have to talk to my service provider about this.
So, if you want to get a phone with almost all the features, get yourself one of these today.
a) Nokia Touch and Type (Rs. 8000/-)
b) Samsung Chat 335 (Rs. 5600/-)
c) LG Cookie WiFi (Rs. 4500/-)
* All prices are approximates.

supper, 02 Oct 2010Stated standby and talk time don't seem right.Too good to be true please varify.Saw 450h stand... moreused this phone for 3 days with about 2hours of mp3 playing, moderate-heavy texting, around 1.5 hours total of calls, and setting up of features (like renaming phonebook entries, changing/editing profiles)...so not really bad for a dual sim phone...
angel, 06 Dec 2010Yes (.doc) and (.pdf)do you have a java app that could read .doc and .pdf? what is it? thanks!

arj, 15 Mar 2011i bought this phone for two days now. blue tooth is not compatible for nokia. i updated with t... morehi! i wonder why this is happening to your phone...i successfully transferred 600 phonebook entries and other files from my nokia phone to my OT-806D phone...hope you fix the problem... :)
emc2, 16 Mar 2011hi.i got a problem on my alcatel ot-806d.i just bought it last january. everytime i touch/open... moreyou know, this also happened to me after i deleted my messages...what i did was connect the phone to my computer (with the pc suite for alcatel installed) and delete the messages from the inbox through the pc suite...be sure that you refresh several times to see that the inbox is really empty...do the same for the outbox...sometimes, not all messages appear so you think you have deleted everything already...after deleting everything, disconnect your phone and turn on and off...i hope it works for you...i am loving this phone so far... :)
