the cards are not formated i cant find anywhere to format it on the phone windows xp could not find the phone as the card has no format i took mine to the mother inlaws stuck it in her different phone same card phone and formated it xp now has found the phone now trying to get mp3 on
And no Kristy you do not get a disk with it, you need Windows XP and as soon as you hook your phone up to the PC the PC will self install it after a while.
The phone should have an option for the memory card saying "format card" if that will not work, try hooking it up to your pc and try to format it using windows. That should work... normally.
hi all i have the alcatel ot-e801 phone people are sking how to get the music player working i am haveing the same trouble press music player comes up failed try to activate usb comes up failed os is xp home cant find on the phone how to format the the card has found in a earlier post could some one put it down in plane english dummy version please thanks
hi do you need a disc with these phones ,for your pc .to down load im having probles can any body teell me how to do it .many thank kirsty
Plain and simple answer; NO that will not work... This is a simple entry level phone that has an excellent mp3 player embedded and that's it. Nothing more and nothing less. It has no bluetooth and no IR so sorry that will not work. Still a great little phone for calling sms and some mp3 entertainment!
I want to buy this phone but can anyone tell me if it's possible to put mp3's in the memory card from another phone that support BT or IR(ex.SonyEricsson Z530i)and then to put it in the E801...would it work?Thanks
This phone now £19.99 in Woolworths, with 64mb micro sd card.However I also get the "failed" message when trying to connect with usb and also when I try to start the music player.Suspect the card is not formatted but cannot do much with it as it does not come with a SD card adaptor.
does this phone come with an micro sd card if it doesn't it is a rip off of ur money
Theres a white version of this out, does that one come with a 256mb micro sd memory card as the black version does?
hi,can anyone help?i just bought this phone for my son but for some reason he can't download music onto it-keeps coming up as failed!any suggestions would be greatly appreciated-& it'll save my sanity as i have 1 very stressed out 12 year old!!thanks!!
I have also problems with downloading mp3 from my computer to the phone. (i have windows xp and several usb ports)
What i am doing wrong?
WOAH! The screen shows some Amon Tobin! I have ALL his albums! Whoever photoshopped that image of the phone has really REALLY good taste in music...
I feel happy in my brain.
Eventhough I have this phone for almost two months I have never actually used it only to listen to music all day long and test this feature.
What I can tell you at the moment is that I am using it as mp3 player for 3-4 per day and another 30-40 minutes of talking a day and some additional texting and the baterry needs to be recharged after 2 days (1.5 in some cases).
how long last the battery when it play mp3 altatel claims 600 min is that true?
does it take sd mini or sd micro cards i just bought one it says micro but everyone says it should be mini sd card please help me someone
Have you tried to format the sd mini card? YOu can do this either though using the included card readre or just plugin itto something that supports this type of cards.
Maybe the phone has problems because the card is not properly formated.
Also try plugin in the phone into a different usb port on your computer. Maybe there is a problem with the drivers instaled in the computer.
I bought the phone so I dont have to carry a phone and an MP3 player every where I go... The problem I have with the phone is I cant download music onto it... I connect the phone to the PC via the USB cable, and when I press activate USB it says Failed... If anyone knows the solution to this then please let me know... Thanks
