Had this thing for 4 years. Dropped it in water and fixed it with rice, only the soc got rusty. It's good and all but started ghosting.
My OT991d is more than five years old, battery is the original and still powers it for days. And it plays music with a very decent sound quality (headphones). Well I don't really use it as a smartphone: playing music, 2G telephony and text SMS, FM radio, okay sometimes internet radio but that's all I do with the WIFI :) ROM is really too short, RAM is not much better. But mine is just the most reliable cell phone I've ever had. What can I add ... save your eyes: keep your phone dumb :)
The Alcatel OT-991 can take photos of 2560x1920 pixels.
The Alcatel OT-991d is a dual SIM version of that phone.
The Alcatel OT-991 doesn't support playing WMA files!
Used it for two years. I can say that its durable, the low ram memory only makes it good enough for social networking and not for gaming, has decent camera and battery lasts long
a pic taken with the front camera is not really nice,are there any settings to help?
I have this phone and i'm going to buy LG L70. The Alcatel OT 991 is not so good phone, it keeps crashing and i can't download any app bigger than 15 mb! This phone has a lot of problems. 1. The internal memory. Only 150 mb. 2. The camera. My phone could not connect with the camera. 3. Crashes at least twice a day. I use this phone for two years and if you want a good phone, dont go with this.
If you want a good phone,than,pick again,you are not going to be happy with this one,not enough of Ram memory
I can say that Alcatel put one of the greater loudspeaker on that phone - the music is loud and clear comparing with my other three smartphones Samsung S3 mini, S4 mini and Alview A6 quatro; also the screen is larger than the one on the Samsung mini series (which are wide)

I do mobile repairs so I know my phones. I've been forced to use this alcatel in dual sim for over three months now and I must say (forgive my french) it is the sh******* phone ever made. OS seems to hold on only for a bout two weeks from factory reset then it goes mental. I experienced every possible error and bug android can give on that device. After two months you can't even make a phone call or send a txt msg without restarting the phone every hour or even few times in a row before it works properly. Many users have similar experience to mine. Forget about facebook app or even browsing internet. Almost all the problems are due to ridiculously small amount of available memory I guess. Anyway stay away! If you find it on the street leave it there and don't touch it!
Root it, install a rom mod like Jeffta v4 or Vesa (look for it on xda), use link2sd plus to move apps to sd card (plus version move all data to ext2 partition on sd card, must be a class 10) and phone becomes other!!! With this vitamins I can do much things with it - Sygic, Whatsapp, youtube, gmail, etc. Control running apps on RAM, things like auto sync and google maps would slow down this guy. Install multiling O keyboard, very lightweight and swipe function. Over 3G phone lags and freezes a lot, this is the real issue. Don´t expect to run games more than angry birds or blocks because it just has few RAM and low processor!!! Of course it as hardware limitations, but for the money you pay for it what do you expect?
my set is connecting to all wifi devices except TP Link sim router. can you please help me to connect
