Can you charge this Alcatel through the hdmi cord? Like through your pc or w.e. my charger port is broken so I can't charge it at all, does anyone know if its expensive to fix? And it likes to shut off after ending apps or if it gets set down slightly hard (literally a tap) or after phone calls? Otherwise everything else worked fine. Haha
Hello I watched some videos on youtube about this alcatel and it seems good, I want an advice from anyone if this phone is nice to be used.

i like the phone,except the battery goes compelety dead after just about 2 hours even if i dont talk on it,anybody have any ideas.
I have the Alcatel onetouch 995 ultra; bought it in Holland. Now i'm going to Canada. I know there is a issue with different networks/Mhz and not al european phones will work overthere. Can Anyone tell me if this phone works in CAnada(Ontario, quebec and Nova scotia)??
(The box says this one is for GSM Network 850/900/1800/1900Mhz and HSPA/WCDMA 900/2100 MHZ but it only igives a list of european countries where this phone could be used. so i'm wondering???)
Hello! one question - have any of you experienced issue with wi-fi connection? I have big issue when connecting to wireless router (TP-Link). In the beginning i'm able to dowload information from the net but after certain time/MB-flow, the router freezes and other devices (laptops) also can't be connected to it. Whitout OT995 being connected to that router - everything is OK, but once done - the same problem every time. I tried with other smartphones (iphone 4s, Samsung gallaxy 2) - no such issue. Please help!!! Is it a router/network issue, or something specific with the OT995 hardware/settings?!?
eb9941, 10 Jul 2013I upgraded mine to 4.0 and I can use the flash in video!yeah me too, i've upgraded to ICS 4.0.4 and video flash option is now there. panorama mode also added. quite happy with the upgrade :)
carl804, 05 Jul 2013i just found out that there is no option to turn on the led light in video camera mode. this i... moreokay, i just found a solution to the no video light option in the built-in camcorder app. i installed an app called LGCAMERA from playstore and problem solved!
i just found out that there is no option to turn on the led light in video camera mode. this is not good when shooting videos in low light or no light conditions. i've used many android phones and this is the first time i encountered a phone without this option. im using gingerbread 2.3.6.....
anybody here have this same concern? will an upgrade to official ICS solve this issue? please advise thanks!
can I upgrade this to 4.1 jelly bean without rooting it? can I just use the upgrade system on the Alcatel site? thanks :-)
What are the best settings for setcpu for this phone? Is it 1401/1401 or should I go lower?
Can someone tell me where to get a cover to protect my OT 995 I'M in Nairobi kenya
