hello everyone - got a pleasant surprise over the weekend - the phone appears to be unlocked!! :))
referred to by Martin, you could buy this phone for 39 Pounds Sterling
Ya, i think we all wished you were hired by TCL to be their PR guy. Unfortunately, they are way behind currently in terms of technology to compete...hope this would change very soon. Or else it would be the demise of our favourite brand
Don: Thanks for you kind words :)! Tell that to Alcatel (or TCL for that matter) and let them make me an offer :) I would love to help their image :D!
Martin: Yes it seems you are one of the lucky ones who have it in white! I envy you.
I've being following your remarks around for a while now..why not consider starting a alcatel hand phone club...or something like that..since i am a alcatel fan too. Had being using their 5th phone already. you had being very helpful to the others here, congrats
Wow nice video, very cool phone too!!! I think I know what I shall buy as a present to someone ;-).
PS.: GAMBIT, If you read this message would you mind and send me an email at email@example.com
Here's the video blog of a guy taking his sweet time checking out the phone
Yes, headphones are included... and yes in some packages the memory card is included, ranging from 128 to 512 mb, depending on what network and in what store you buy it. BUT BEWARE some networks offer this phone WITHOUT memory card, but still a 256 mb one costs peanuts these days.
Cool Martin, happy you like it! This is really a great phone, a great deal for that money. Could you however do me a favour? Make some pictures of it in action? As I want to see what changes have been made since the concept model. Could you make images of it in stand by... with screen on and with keypad on? Please? Thank you very much ;-). Mail the images to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all the help and advice! I bought one of these phones - and here's what I think of it. I bought it from woolworths for 39.99 (bargain) but it didn't come with a memory card (!) checked the manual and it said, ragarding memory card 'If available' - so had to spend more money on memory card (oh well - there goes the bargain!). The phone is simple to navigate and works fine on an apple mac for transferring music via USB (no drivers needed), unfortunately, the mp3 player and phone seem quite seperate, which means you can't use your mp3's as ringtones - but having said that the sound quality of the player is very good (with 9(!) different equalizer settings). The phone has a great design ( similar I think to Sony Ericsson K510 and K750 ) and it feels comfortable to use, also the included headphones are not the worst I've ever heard - so all in all still a fantastic bargain.
Yes datacable is included, you upload the songs similar to a usb memory stick; you plug the phone on your pc... the pc recognises the phone (after drivers have been installed ofcourse) and then you can copy and paste the files you want.
does it come with a usb data cable - exactly how do you get songs on the phone? thanks
No way Gamb your English is fine, I can understand you perfectly. Could you please send me an email on email@example.com so I can get in touch with you for some specific talks between 2 Alcatel advisors ;-)? Thanks!
knight. all the betas that we have, are red buttons lights,i`ll request to tcl some data ( www.tcl-ta.com ), when i get news i`ll post it here.. ( My english is horrible!! )
Hi Gambit, please would you confirm one thing for me, will the production version of this phone have red keyboard lights? As you say your beta version has, but will the real one have that too? As originally the E100 Alcatel was planned to get that too, but now it has the much more common blue keyboard lights. So please confirm? Thanks Gambit, hope you like the phone.
