I'd rather use a feature phone than this. Sure it's an Android smartphone but many of the "smart" features of a smartphone have basically became useless. The Android version is way too out of date. Forget Android 2.1, Android 2.3 IS ALREADY 100% OBSOLETE!!! Not to say there weren't any good Android phones in 2010 (there were, take the Samsung Galaxy S for example), but my point is that these old Android phones have (beyond) abysmally aged. Sure, the iPhone 4 which runs up to iOS 7 is unusable but the current version of Android at the time of the iPhone 4 release was already completely obsolete a few years before iOS 7 became completely obsolete.

Hi my Alcatel OT 980 battery is dead I like the device so much where can I buy the battery in South Africa
The only problem with this phone is that a second one is hard to come by....this phone is extraordinary
my calibration is not working how and where can i do it in nigeria.oyo state.ibadan
I bought this, and had it for 1 week only. It wouldn't switch on. I even took the battery out v.v
I need alcatel ot 980 battry it mistakenly fall on grand and I can't find the battry again so i need the battry becouse I luv the phone
am having a very problem with my battery. How can i get the battery in ghana to buy. I love the phone so much.
I got this phone last year, I am with pretty happy with the device as it look like an HP Pre3 with physical buttons and of course the versatile android OS.
I change the stock android launcher to windows phone 7 launcher and it runs smoothly.
There are many cons about the device, as to poor wifi signal, resistive screen, not user-friendly internet browsing, few number of games it can run, no live wallpaper, poor camera quality, scratch prone screen and poor battery life.
The device is quite sturdy, I accidentally drop the device several times. It is a slider phone and I had it slide for I guess 30 times a day or roughly around 10,000 times. Well it is tough, the coating of the device is also of decent quality. If I will compare the quality of this phone to similar nokia sliding device, the build quality of this device is amazing. A similar sliding device made by nokia will only last for months.
The device runs smoothly, it is a good phone for calling and texting, it has good call quality, it has decent speaker, although the quality of sound using headphone is a bit poor. Overall it is a good device in its price category and against nokia phones running symbian.
If OT 980 have the following it will be so awesome...
1) 1500 to 2500 mah battery
2) 3.2 to 3.5 screen
3) Capacitive screen
4) Scratch resistant glass (Gorilla, MG, Sodaline)
5) ICS or Jelly Bean
7) Better quality camera with 5mp to 8mp
8) LED flash
9) Polycarbonate plastic or aluminum
In the Philippines, you can buy an Alcatel 980 battery for Php500 or around $11. Usually in SM stores with Alcatel kiosk. But you are in UK, you can try to purchase it online, I don't know if you can purchase one via online site such as Lazada or Ebay.
Had it for 2 years and that's long I think, but now its not up to date anymore
its the battery that drains quickly that matters. otherwise its ok. do somethong on battery consumption
