Connect the phone via USB Cable with the PC. Than you can open 2 windows at your PC - one for the phone-memory and one for the memorycard. Then create a folder and copy your mp3-files in it.

Or: Put the memory card in the adapter (for SD-Cards, should be in the package) and connect it to the pc via card-reader. Then you should create a folder too and copy the files in it ;)

The phone does have zoom in VGA resolution, you can zoom up to 8 times. But in 1.3 mpix resolution the zoom can not be operated.

Hi gwhy: How would you know that your software is the old one? I bought mine last week and I am not sure how to determine if its old version or the software installed in your fone is already the new one. Your help is greatly appreciated. My fone have no problem except that when I take photos I do not know how to operate the zoom function or does it really have a zoom function in terms of taking pictures.

hi all,
i just got the 853. really amazing, full featured (even if i think i will need a small FW upgrade - free during 1 year warranty). i am 169xxxxx.
For those who asked, the user guide says "mini SD card up to 1 Go in FAT formatting".
The proprietary USB is not so nice (i can not re use all my previous battery chargers , 4 !).
FM radio is very good and sound also
Yet, i have a small trouble with a Nokia bluetooth HS56W earset, deconnection/reconnection every 2 or 3 minutes. Hope the FW upgrade will solve this.
If you need more info, let me know in this forum.
I will buy next week a 1Go mini SD to embark my mp3 (only 35 euros)


To mohamed, please provide me your e-mail address and I'll send you soft copy of the manual.

Where to get newest firmware and how to upgrade
OT-S853 thanks in advance!

  • fadz

To THWS, of course the user guide and software CD (PC suite 4.17) are included in the package.

To Tony:
According to what Alcatel (Philippines) told me, it will be more faster and to correct the known problem of hanging up your phone. The old firmware version slow down your phone operation especially when memory card is almost full. I hope that will help.
