ali, hope u r wrong. bcoz mine's 164.. :-( what's yours azm? i bought the 1st day it came out in sg wang.
I spend alot of time surfing on my phone, I want to know how good is the default browser for this phone model.
Also someone mentioned about Opera Mini, I have look up the website at http://www.opera.com/products/mobile/operamini/ doesn't seem to have anything mention about this phone model.
To Knight Rider:
I think u can check ur firmware from the back of the phone. remove the battery.
Above (Made in China) or whatever the country u have, u will find a no.
The first 3 digits to the left are the firmware as i think.
I have 169.
hope to be right
i think one of the most effective factors on battery life for ot-S853 is the external speaker also the connection to the pc.
I started using the remote control set the battery was able then 2 complete 2 days including long talk time & good time also for music & fm listening.
As u know in most of lithium batteris don't leave it till it loses the all charge. start to charge when the indicator reaches final bar of the 3 bars of the indicator.
for my good luck my version is doing ok with sms features (reply and this stuff).
The telephone hangs sometimes during music playing.
The menus are really cool and easy to surf.
If u are intrested in GSM or mobile field parameters (frequencies, power,etc...)
u can try dialing 000000* and check mainteneace info included (available for all alcatel mobiles), avoid changing these parameters.
if this mobile was able to transfer data through bluetooth it would have eaten the market (but alcatel will remain alcatel)
Waiting for only good news about this mobile :)
To anybody who have this phone:
I just want to know if this phone have hole for neck strap. Thanks a lot.
Hi Don, Version 177 huh? How do you check what version you have? And also where are you from Don? Did you buy it with that version or did you update it somewhere?
i already had my ot 853 with the latest upgraded software version 177. So far its the fastest. i love it, sounds so cool.
Yes this phone supports Mpeg4 movie files, however I don't know if it supports Xvid/DivX since I have not tried that. And yes if an Mp3 file has an ID-tag in form of an album cover image or a photo of the artist then the S853 will show that image while playing that song.
By the way I have asked this before but no one answered, how do you people check the firmware version in the phone? As some people said they had version 169 or something like that? So how do you check that? Thanks!
Im writing now using my s853, im on my way home now, in a bus heh opera mini ownz! Anyways my phone does support mp3 pics while listening to music.
see this picture: s853.uw.hu/kepek/DSCF345_3.jpg
have u seen this before? there is a picture of madonna's album.
Does mp3 file support pictures???
There aren't any pictures (especially madonna not) on my memory card.
does this cell really can play Mpeg4 movie files too? (I mean DivX or Xvid files) cos I read that on a page, but I didn't know can I believe that or not...
To all Acatel Fans in Cebu, Philippines:
This phone (and OT E260) is already available in Cebu at SM City Cebu. You can buy this phone in RC Goldline and Aerophone. In RC Goldline, this phone is Php 11,500.00 (USD 221.00) while in Aerophone, this phone is Php 14,500.00 (USD 278.00). So, go there and buy. I'll buying mine soon. Anyway the package includes 128 MB mini SD card and other accessories except the bluetooth headset.
As far as I remember, I must have sent you the PC Suite. Well, anyway, it's now freely available via the official website. I downloaded it just to make sure I have the latest.
To Knight Rider:
My phone is still put there somewhere, in between. No info from PIXMANIA, as if they haven't got it. Anyway, if the phone is gone, I will receive the whole insurance which will be enough to buy the phone from Ukraine, eg, as you might have noticed the increased number of Alcatel fans in the Russian forum buy their 853s from Kiev.
Hi! I bought the phone 3 days ago. I love it.
The first Alcatel S853 Site in Hungary:
My own site, daily ~100 visitors, please come and check it!

Photos made by our hungarian s853:
Just wondering but how do you people check your firmware version numbers?
try modify image for zoom in, but the zoom in choice is limited.
if u fail in receiving, check ur message center number. if u fail in replying or sending, change the expiration to anything other than never and one hour. try 1 week.
Anyone already download pc suite 4.18 and use it with AMD SEMPRON? Is it compatible?
