Because I've tried putting .mp4 files in my phone, and it wasn't able to play the file. Kindly send me a sample of an mp4 file that the OT-s680 plays, I'll have that analyzed. Send it to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance. I'm gonna try putting 4gig microSD on my OT-s680.
Yes, there are different formats for video files, even if they use just one filename extension. For example, a 3GP file actually has many formats, one with mpeg4 video and AMR sound format, another one has h.263 video format and AAC sound format. Unfortunately, not all of these are supported by the phone.
The OT-s680 does not support 3G2 (an extension of 3GP). I've tried it already.
The S680 supports up to 2gb cards! Also for more info about Alcatel mobile phones please email me on email@example.com.

Also, OT S680 supports .mp4. I am just making it clear because there are claims that OT S680 does not support .mp4.
If you have problem converting your videos into mp4 for your OT S680 just get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The official maximum capacity for OT S680 is 2 gb and the manufacturer include 1 gb micro sd free in the package. I have this phone since December 9, 2008 and it's working very fine and I am currently using pqi 2 gb micro sd. I am planning to try to use 4 gb because I believe it can support up to 4 gb because OT S853 official maximum capacity is only 512 mb and the manufacturer includes free 256 mb mini sd in the package but I am currently using 1 gb Kingston mini sd in my S853.
If any OT S680 user have tried using 4 gb and the phone still working fine kindly inform me through email@example.com or just post it here in OT S853 section.

That's the phone I have right now. And yes, it's using microSD. I want to save videos in it, so I'm asking the maximum microSD memory the OT-S680 can support.

This phone does not suppot micro sd. It only supports mini sd and the official maximum capacity is 512 mb (that is from manufacturers official statement) but in actual this phone supports up to 1 gb mini sd. I am using 1 gb Kingston mini sd in my unit.
Too bad. But I bought it anyway. It came in with a free 1gig microSD. How much memory can the OT-s680 support?
I seem to have misplaced my software CD that came with the phone and now I need to transfer contacts from the phone to PC. Is there any place where I can download the software along with the patches that had come out earlier?
why doez my alcatel ot-s853 alwayz memory full eventhough i hav3e no more messages and many more spaces?
Mx, 28 Jan 2009Some say that the battery life of the Alcatel OT-S680 is too short. Is that true? I'm planning... moreOT S853 battery is Li-Ion 800 mAh and people should not compare it to other phones' battery which is higher than 800 mAh. And the truth is, this music machine really consumes more power than other models like OT S680. I have tried to my OT S853 and OT S680 fully charged then after both are fully charged I played mp3s. After about two hours, the battery level of my S853 have decreased 1 but the battery level of my OT S680 does not changed. My OT S853 can play music up to 4 hours without using the phone while it is playing.
I have not reloaded it with the latest firmware if there is. It is still 18 b.
Just to add up to my previous post, they say they only use the phone moderately, but it's battery life is still too short.
