If low on internal memory, back-up your apps with a file manager, and do a full factory reset. When you do that you seem to gain a little extra space...orphaned files? You have to agree though, this phone is so well built.
This phone I keep coming back to use, the build quality is just so robust. For anyone thinking of using this device it is a bit slow, but still seems faster than other 600mhz phones. It has a very loud speaker...you will never miss a call unlike the Huawei Ascend G300, which is priced the same. Good screen, and in some places in the UK can be found at £40....total bargain.
I want know if the nimbuzz and wipe call can be work on this mobiel or no.Thanks
I have an alcatel myself and in my opinion its alot better than a apple iphone

I have owned Alcatel Multi-Media phones in the past, but this is my 1st experience w/a "Smartphone". I was initially impressed by the number of features on this phone, especially for the price. That soon faded however as I discovered the battery capacity is low as well is the internal memory. I've had to uninstall several apps to keep memory space open for text memory.
plz need halp quickly...

angelo, 26 May 2012how to fix internet in android?its a piece of junk
Alcatel ot990 is the best phone for average users, nice in the hand and surprisingly fun to use, if i may rate this 8/10 very good unit for a cheaper android phone,
nice audio quality, camera is average, call quality is good and srong signal on networks, try it yourself if you want a backup android in a cheaper and a good quality handset, this is your chance.
im loving this as my backup phone.
A lot of phones come my way, I get to assess them. Everything from Nokia Lumia 710 that crashes comstantly, it seems with latest software update etc. I buy the discounted items, like the EVO 3d, that Asda sold for £207 and now the 990 for yes £40! This is a great device, screen mega bright, so its not gimgerbread, or ICS, have you heard the audio? Loud, and fantastic quality through decent earphones, speaker too is good, twenty times more audiable than that of the original desire or recent motorola motoluxe. Camera is ok, its better than moroluxes 8mp! I used to detest Alcatel products, cheap and nasty, not this device, it is well sturdy construction, unlike the Ascend G300. Only major downside is only 100Mb of internal memory, but it runs angry birds fast, still it is only an arm 6 processor. At £40 on o2 at asda it is a steal, best deal ever!
AymAn, 07 Apr 2012hey guys i have just one question how to make it play flash videos i downloaded adobe flash ma... moreI tried this unit from my friend and i found that,
rear camera is out of focus, front cam is kinda dark, lcd is dim even on the highest level, some games wont work and slow response. If I were you, buy Motorola fire xt instead. features are as follows. bright 3.5 inch lcd, 5mp rear cam w/ flash and sub vga, 800mhz,
Just got one and I am well pleased. Can't fault it in any way. Great phone for under £100. 10/10
I upgraded from the Alcatel 880. WRONG! I had issues with the Alcatel 880 but thinking the Alcatel 990 would not give me the same issues WRONG! These Alcatel phones are a piece of JUNK! I had the Alcatel 990 for three months you cannot find replacement parts their service department and service representatives are unpleasant rude and do not offer ANY assistance. BUYER BEWARE! I will NEVER buy another Alcatel I will go back to Blackberry Samsung or Motorola phones I've had better results
e_ja_kuliram, 08 May 2012nothing special about it, mine died after 6 months, consider samsung ace as a better choiceSamsung Galaxy Ace sucks with its battery life..i regret to have one! Planning to change to a different brand.
