Thank you Azm for this information.
Now... does anyone know what did TA launche at CeBit?
Some details about mp3 ringtones:
1.any full mp3 file from your memory card can be chosen as a default ringtones (that means for any number outside your phonebook), directory ringtones , on+off screen & message. however if you choose it as ringtone or directory ringtones only initial part of the song will be played until you pick up the phone or the until ringing stop(miss call)- just make sure the initial part of song is loud enough if not choose another song with loud/fast initial part. for message the mp3 tones will play until finish or you have to manually stop it from their folder / memory card
2. the other way to use mp3 ringtones (I prefer & highly recommend this way) is to use the customise sound software from pc suite. Just like in your 735 software , you will choose any part from your full mp3 file (up to ~29secs + ~200kb), only this time you will get a true mp3 sound (not a lower quality amr file in your 735 @~45kb). some will say 29secs is too short but hey ! do you want to pick up the phone or you just want to hear the ringtones.
3. many user complaints about no individual ringtones like in most nokia phone- this phone only support directory ringtones. there is something just right for you guys!
just choose any of the video files from memory card / phone memory (recorded or downloaded from pc/website) and assign it to any specific contact number. when the person is calling instead of your normal directory ringtone that ringing, the person name will appear & the video will be played as a ringtones-- so cool they call it videotones.
Try it guys but of course, you have to buy the phone first .
I have a ot557, in the specs says it has ptt, but I have never found it.
Ohh, I forgot, I´m not sure, but I think I saw it in gray color (the rubber part); is it for sale in that color?
Guys, real thanks for the photos and video; by the size, I assume photo 1&2 are in std quality. But I just want to know if it can take VGA photos with zoom, and how much zoom is allowed in VGA resollution.
Che Bad, where did you buy the s853? did you order it online somewhere? i'm from the USA and i would like to purchase this phone.
owned ot715, ot757 & now s853. bluetooth disappointing for s853, unable to interact with
other device except handsfree & car kit. software & sms could be better if they maintain the one with ot715 plus mms upgrade. no ptt and
not responsive at times. still being an alcatel product, excellent value for the money.
Thank u all for the infos.
I just need some of u who bought the mobile already to conclude this critical points about the mobile.
1.Full Functionality of the BLUETOOTH transfer (Headset, PC , Data transfer "send & recieve).
2.USB data transfer & quality of the software included.
3.Name Search by first Character only?
I think if we can get a good result about these points then the mobile is a must buy one. waiting for ur opinions
We have been waiiting for along time for the release of the phone here in EGYPT. The release is postponed to 15 MARS & i don't know why. hope that this delay is for enhancements to be added on the phone. I think Alcatel needs this phone to make successful back into market as Alcatel has made very bis steps back in the cellular phones market.
I think Alcatel OT S853 was take over as the number one best audio sound for today!
I have a Nokia 6230i and a Alcatel C651. Both have advantages and disadvantages. Anyway, I'm a little disapointed because of 6230i (not so much of "user friendly" - like the Alcatel's, although with rich multimedia content). I'm stil waiting for the 853 to be released in Eastern Europe and hope to be ready a second software platform when this will happen.
I had a W800i for 6 month, the Joystick has been repaired 3 times and overall i had to wait eight weeks to get it back...camera ist very good but sound is just average, no stero...
Anyone tried a 1GB-card with the 853? Is there option for rewind while videoplaying?
Rush , do some homework read reviews of W800 from this site / mobile-review.com / mobile88.com (just to mane few)
At least 3 important points to think of:
1. W800 /k750 have higher price tag
go for it if you're SE fan with higher budget
2. both are music phone however w800 can only play good music with the provided earphone meanwhile s853 excelled in playing music with it stereo speker + with earphone too
3. of course you wil get much better digicam with w800
Happy shopping- it's all your choice
W800 is far superior, that's out of question, plz guys don't be redicules & stop this fanboyism
Nokia user please take notes that this phone price and many specs are comparable to 6230i. the main differences are screen resolution and bluetooth function. while this phone's bluetooth can only be used for headset , n6230i can use it's bluetooth for data transfer with other devices. for data transfer this phone has fully functional irda and usb cable- external memory req as mass storage device
"After a long time alcatel has launched a mobile phone that suits all basic needs...viz Clicking photos,hearing music,radio..etc.Given,the bluetooth funtion allows u an easy access to all external data.Also the look of the phone is quite ergonomically designed,now we just have to wait and watch the results of the phone.I am very much keen on buying this one,but cannot decide on,because I have been using nokia phones for quite sometime,But am sure of this phone to do well,especially the sound,which has been focused on a lot.And if a price that does not burn a hole in your pocket??Why not,will be somthing,quite demanding".
