Hi, i just bought Alcatel OT-112 Mobile Phone (unlocked) for $16 at Harvey Norman.good price for unlocked basic mobile.selling $30 elsewhere.
+1 for FAKE INCOMING CALL
what is that ???
I would assume that 'fake incoming call' fakes an incoming call?
ahahaha that feature is weird.
Cheap - has Chronometer & Torch, but no 3G, NextG or YesG
For a cheap phone why u need 3G, NextG, YesG :p
Yeah, you can't access email or internet on it anyway, and can't install apps, so no need for 3G.
phones like this have a very useful(to the retailer that is) purpose-to lure in the cheapskates in the hope they will see another phone they want and spend more! but as a simple phone this is all some will need, my dad got that nokia 1616 for $1 not too long ago and it's fine for him
Good phone for old people.
Can you order this online to be posted out?
Can you put a 3G SIM in it? ie would USIM cards work in older phones which do not support 3G?
It depends on which network the SIM is from.
Is it a 3 USIM? I have an idea they block roaming to Telstra (2G or 3G) if the SIM is in a 3 network coverage area (3's own network is 3G (2100 MHz) and their SIMs roam to Telstra network (where available) if not in 3 coverage area). But now that 3 are part of Vodafone, maybe they allow roaming to the Vodafone 2G network as well.
Not 100% sure on this.
Crap phone…great price :) + from me
I can call y hoes . bros , foes, slowes, crows, on this thing
I'm admiring the blazing fast 52Mhz processor!
i will buy one….just so i can make a call when my smartphone runs out of battery doing stuff other than making calls.
At least these things have longer battery life than today's smartphones.
I disagree, my Nokia E71 had a really long standby time (3-4 days). Could go even longer if you switched 3G off.
I remember when mobiles were at least $200+. It's amazing how this can be just $16.
I'll stop before I start, otherwise I'll start ranting about a stupid person in my family…
I can remember a company that for a few weeks were selling 3210's…$8 A MONTH WITH $8 INCLUDED CALLS!!!
What made this more special? You could throw away the sim card, pay the $192 to get into credit on your contract and then use the phone (it was unlocked, could use any provider). This was when other companies were selling the 3210 for $800-850!!!
I miss going online to get those awesome ringtones and then typing it into the composer. And snake. I really miss snake
I've always used cheap phones so this is a really excellent price for something basic. I bought the cheapest $30 nokia phone a few months ago which serves me fine and I prefer nokia because everything feels familiar and it has less quirks than other brands.
For those who bought it - can you please help to check if the menu can be changed to Chinese?
no chinese. only english french italian spanish and dutch.
call the store youre visiting because these little things are like hotcakes at this price.
great little gadgets. enough functions for it being what it is… a bloody phone. i mean big ass keys and the ability to call/sms.
the term torch is a bit misleading because its more like a camera flash on the back of the phone.
heres a menu list since i got fuck all to do.
pretty self explanatory pain in the ass
—blacklist (you can block specific numbers) +1
—sim backup info
—wallpaper (shit selection)
—keys (quick dialling )
-dictionary (you know what words i added for the purpose of vulgarity)
—auto key lock
—-english french italian spanish and dutch
—-activate phone code
—-fixed dial no
—-change phone code
-fake call (set name and time and tone of fake call) +1
usual shit here
thats about the gist of things. and for 16 bucks to be able to fake call out of a situation and block specific numbers its quite a pick up.
you're a legend. thanks for posting this!
The smooth finish on the OT-108's (The previous model HN were selling for this price) case made it a little slippery. Is it the same for this model?
