Don, 28 Nov 2010There's actually two designs for this model. One is shown in Mobile-Review.com http://www.mob... moreyep we only have the white one here in NZ. Its a lovely phone,the keyboard feels a bit cheap tho and the camera could be maybe 3mp would make it a great phone....
i have had this phone for 4 weeks and it has developed a few problems. Firstly it keeps telling me the battery is low when its not, it has started switching itself off and then it will not come back on! Anybody any suggestions as to what the problem is? Tracy.
Does nayone know if the red version is available in the uk. Carphone warehouse only do the black one, and none of those slighty dodgy looking website don't have it either. Any help?

I purchased one of these things (in Australia, very hard to get here) and it's got a stuck button of some sort - the "hang-up" button seems to be permanently depressed, I have to actually hold that button down to do anything and there's ZERO support here for these phones I'm finding out. Anyone else seen this problem or have any suggestions on how to fix? I think it's not a physical switch thing as it does the reverse of this when I push and hold that button.
Is the screen supposed to come on when u receive a message? Mine just vibrates when slient or plays tone. But the screen doesnt come on. Pls help
can anyone please tell me does the phone have to be switched on for the alarm clock to work? I set it for 7 am but it never works but my afternoon alarm always works? very confused! tracy
andrew walsall engla, 12 Nov 2010Set the phone to 2g only for normal use that will help but the phone does use a lot of battery... moreyou are a star turned it on to 2g and i am getting about 3 days use now!
@Desi or anyone else who knows - How to remove the bundled apps? They don't appear in the Manage Applications area.
Would like to remove those game demos for a start.
Just confirm this phone is £79.95 if ordered online on T-Mobile from Car Phone Warehouse (plus £10 Credit). Great phone and my battery is still at 70% charge 2 days after receiving it. Screen is responsive for a resistive.
Need to get the PC Suite from their website to connect to a PC, no cd included in the box.
Anyone know when Android 2.2 or higher coming for this phone?
Alcatel seem not to know when.

Can only suggest you get a spare battery and keep it charged i normally get about a day and a half out of a full charge.
Battery is affected also by which network used ie tmobile will drain power more than orange as orange uses stronger signal with better transmitters tmobile will cause the phone to draw more battery power to boost reception.
