To find and buy extra's for the phone is simple... go to www.protel.de or www.cellatel.com.
The phone is cheap and nice but what about finding accessories for it? Battery, charger, headphones...
hey all well i bought this phone as i got tired of brands and bells and whistles i did still like the idea of not having to carry about my mp3 player with me so on cost and the fact it plays mp3s i got it . And i think its GREAT for the PRICE AND WHAT IT DOES!!
just downloaded some mp3s to it and im listenin on my headphones just now its fab! it was a bit confusing when i plugged in to my pc as the pc closed it down and didnt want to run it but i just went to my computer and selected it there as the removable hard disk clicked songs from itunes dragged and dropped easypeasey!
if you want cheep n cheerful buy it ! for £19.99 (thats with a £10topup!) you cannot go wrong enjoy!
Great little robust phone. Mp3 player a bonus but wud have personally prefered FM radio. At £9.99 on Orange (April 2007) with free 512mb memory card, long standby/talk times etc what else can light users of mobiles like myself need?
phone-atic17, if you want those features, go buy alcatel ot s853 and it will satisfy your needs.
i think this fone is extremely cute especially for a gilr yet it lacks basic features... i hope alcatel will add to this fone... if it had video, camera, bluetooth and a few more features it would be perfect
The phone is not a rip off... you just have to put the mp3's in the correct folder of your memory card! Thats it.
my god i hate this fone i got it for the mp3 and it dont bloody work rip off dont get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>well,im glad to have this phone coz i really appreciate its features, although it is not expensive like any other phone,u can enjoy music as u can, the gud thing is,this phone is expandaple up to 2gb,so try it so u can appreciate to.. i really love my phone bcoz i bought it for my self during my day.. i choose black becoz it really rockkksss.....
There is just one official repair centre in UK, which is based in Banbury. All mobile phones have to be sent there. Apparently, OT-E801 with connection problems cannot be fixed.
Not hard at all!!! Just go to your local licensed service center and voila... fixed!
Do not buy an Alcatel phone. Difficult to find accesories. Hard to get the mobile phone repaired.
can anybody just tell me how to format the card for the first time frm the mobile as when i switch on the music player it says micro sd error can anybody help me
well, lucky I did not buy mine from ROrange =) speaking of quallity, I can still see some bussines ppl (that travel much to rural regions) having two mobiles with them, one new fancy xyz euros worth baby for "show out" and other (usually alcatel DB) when they are about to make/receive a call. when I ask them: why do you carry that ancient thing with you - the answer is usually: it never fails.
@zach & rider
hmm, I bought the phone six weeks ago. 3 weeks stayed at me and 3 weeks in service. tomorrow I'm going to go take it. it isn't a quality phone. maybe it's the network (orange romania): the battery is weak (max 3 days unused), signal strength isn't good either and the quality of conversation... :|
it is my 6th phone in 3 years. i know a lot about mobiles. it is my first alcatel. i used sony ericsson, nokia, sharp, panasonic, siemens. these are quality phones. now I have a panasonic x700. the battery still runs for 3 days and it haves 1 year and 4 months. I listen music for 6 hours before the first battery line disapears. on my alcatel i couldn't listen music for 6 hours with the whole battery =)) that panasonic is a symbian. think again. my sharp tm200 lasts more than the alcatel.
Hi Zach, So nice to see that there are still some people around that know what a good phone should be... exactly that A GOOD PHONE!!! Its cheap, well made, excellent signal and does not fall apart everytime you use it like some expensive models that need handling with silk gloves! Its like the Americans would say "A bang for the buck!" Plus what 40€ phone can claim it has a memory card slot that is expandable up to 2GB!!! Exactly only this Alcatel!
I'll assume you use Windows XP with Service Pack 2 and all the latest patches.
Make sure you have USB port v2.0 and be sure to use SELF-powered USB hub, not BUS-powered one. This is one of those devices that must use SELF-powered USB hub, and that is the source of all your problems. If u have problems locating SELF-powered USB hub, then try THE VERY FIRST ONE on your motherboard (upper left one usually - consult the mobo manual for more info), in most cases that's the one. Or u can always buy self powered USB hub.
no need to thank, but dont talk bad about this phone when the problem lies in you and your lack of knowledge of modern PC technology (I just had to say it)
and plz, stop whining about cameras on mobiles, cause all you need is to communicate. Signal tranceiving, sound quallity and hardware quallity is what makes alcatel - alcatel. Im happy I have it, and Im gonna use it for a very long time.
Thanks for your time.
@gemma: your laptop card reader it's made probably for simple sd card. in order to use this microSD card on your laptop you'll have to buy a microSD to SD card adapter. or to buy a new microSD (also called transflash) card which will come with an adapter.
