Cheap nasty phone. you can't do anything with this piece of shit

I HATE THIS PHONE

I have just hurled this phone accross the room in utter frustration. It certainly reflects that saying "You get what you pay for".

I have just hurled this phone accross the room in utter frustration. It certainly reflects that saying "You get what you pay for". It has a really awful predictive text function which appears to be designed to recognize Klingon as opposed to English. It's memory is pathetic...it can only store around 120 text messages so I'm constantly having to delete messages to recieve them. There is virtually no memory for music or other files. The centre toggle button has a mind of it's own. The only thing I can recommend this phone for is to tell the time....oh and the torchlight is OK. Less
Sorry. We didn't find any good Alcatel 1060 videos yet. Please check back soon or contact us to suggest one.
