To FADZ: What are the changes in my phone if I upgrade to the new firmware. Hope you can help me with this one.
yes the sterio quality is good and on some songs the volume is great, i also have a motorola E398 sterio phone some songs on this handset are louder and clearer than the S853 through the inbuilt speakers, and again on certain tracks the S853 volume and dynamics are better. the colour photos on the E398 have richer colour and it takes a superior photo in a lot or applications. nevertheless the S853 has a good camera options and a good photo can be obtained, overall it is good value for money, apleasure to use. i had mine shipped to brisbane australia by mobile gadgets and communication in Germany, it came with 256 mb mini chip , and the delivery and feedback was first class. this is a nice phone.terry. email firstname.lastname@example.org
To Costas, this phone's bluetooth connectivity is innovated to be able this to transfer images & mp3 to another phone using bt. The innovation is in the unannounced model called OT S860. We will wait for that phone.It will surely be launch this year.
To Yareh: Thanks a lot for your opinion, actually I already bought the alcatel phone and I have compared it to samsung D510 and Motorola. I like the camera of alcatel although its a little bit dark in terms of brightness but detailed, samasung has good camera but the voice quality during calls is very bad, I believe it lacks a noise canceler or DSP. In terms of durability Alcatel is number one. All of this is base on experience.
Strange...in germany something is different...
Here are in the box:
Alcatel OT-S853, battery, battery-cover, 256MB memorycard, Headset (incl. Remote-Control), User Guide, Software CD, AC charger, datacable but no Handstrapt or something else.
To Ali Pinoy: BTW, the ot-s853 package contents are; phone, battery, battery door cover, 128mb mini-sd, stereo headset, handstrap, USB data cable and ac charger.
To Ali Pinoy, i got my ot-s853 already. although, i didnt buy directly from versatile telecoms. i bought it in caloocan by the LRT station, php200 ($4.00) cheaper of what you told me before at versatile. I also have them upgraded to higher firmware version to make it faster. its a very nice phone. you are right, versatile is the alcatel distributor. just came from their today. good thing about versatile telecoms is just take your phone at the store at roxas blvd and they'll upgrade for you to the latest firmware version, and its FREE of charge.
I already buy the Alcatel OT-S853.
The only thing that i don't like is that
the bluetooth can only connect with bluetooth hands free and no with other mobiles to send mp3s and more.
To fadz, how is your trip to VERSATILE last Sunday? have you bought the phone? If yes, how much and what are the package contents. Maybe it includes SMART sim card.
As far as I had a chance to search for this possibility, I only could view the video file as is, because it just ain't as big as the 176x220 screen. The video size is 176x144.
Correct me if I am wrong.
Regarding the zooming of images, I guess it's not possible, but I can't check it right now, so once again, correct me if I am wrong :)
Can any1 tell me if the s853 can zoom-in images and pictures after taken and if you can play videos in full-screen? Thanks

Quick Q, does anyone know how many sms/txt messages this phone can store in its inbox, archive, and does it automaticaly saves sent messages?
It's the OT-S853.
The one and only sound-machine ;)
And the quality over the headset is very good too. (For better quality you can connect your own one ;) )
plz tell me which is loudest mp3 ringtone

what about playing mp3 via headphone quilaty can be compare to w550i
To Ali Pinoy, thanks for the information you've provided. I will visit that place tomorrow, Sunday, which is I hope they're open for business.
To fadz, you can buy this at
Unit 1002 Pearl of the Orient Tower, 1240 Roxas Boulevard, Ermita, Manila. And I believe you can buy it there at the price lower than Php11,500 (US$221) because VERSATILE is the exclusive distributor of Alcatel mobile phones. RC Goldline in SM City Cebu is their retailer.
To Tony: I am one of the millions alcatel fan but to be honest with you (although this is just my observation and I may be wrong), of all the cellphone brands I've observed,it is the SonyEricsson that has the greatest camera/video display and performance as it comes from SONY technology. Second to it is Samsung (another CAMERA/VIDEO equipment manufacturer). But alcatel has good display than NOKIA and it is a low price, high quality phone.
