OP it's just £49.95 as O2 don't force you to buy a £10 top-up. They just send you a SIM card with the £10 bundle tariff ready for you to activate by topping up £10.

Thank you guys, updated the price.

Is this phone easily unlockable and how much it will cost ?
#12
No gyro (so no VR). But still good deal. Currently £142.72 on Amazon and only ever been as low as £99 previously

Looked into this phone last year. I think this model is the ot-6039h. Try this page for unlocking before paying for code.

http://mobilespecs.net/phone/codes/Alcatel/Alcatel_OneTouch_Idol_3_4-7.html section unlock from network before paying for code.

Double the storage on your phone to 16gb

Sounds like the "download more RAM" malware scams of yesteryears ;)

But back to serious, maybe don't attempt this within your warranty period.
#15
Few more links for peeps. If the threads confuse you and your worried about breaking your phone, don't do it.
But I've read lots of success stories.

Not all models actually shipped with 16GB of memory, in which case it obviously doesn't work for those.

Alcatel, next to zero post sales support, mediocre hardware. No, thanks!

brilliant little phone I thinks its better than my 3rd gen moto g.the speakers are fantastic you will be shocked how good they sound.couple of points it won't update software from lollipop as o2 haven't released it and it is locked to o2 but I got mine unlocked through my o2 app as I'm on o2 sim only contract.battery life for such a small battery is really good I get four hours screen time over the day with auto brightness.I put Nova launcher prime on mine to make it less cluttered.wait to you hear them speakers they louder than HTC one phones and sound fine even full volume
#22
wife has had one for about 10 months. very buggy when it comes to storage, have tried all the suggested SD card fixes and none have worked. Sadly her one would unlock to 16gb either and despite being unlocked, it will NOT update to marshmallow.
Wouldn't recommend this phone personally to anyone
#23
Oos now as far as I can tell when I add to basket
#24
No luck with recent O2 deals, always OOS for me.
#25
Try store collection... I was just successful so may work.
#26
I wonder if it comes with the jbl headphones the reviews online always mention them but its o2 its cheap and it hasn't a full charger just the USB lead
#27
Anyone found a cheap way to unlock?
#28
07:14 Back in stock...
#29
Just tried, in checkout it then says out of stock for home delivery.
None available in-store around me (Farnborough etc), but says stock in Windsor and Slough if anyone is close.

No offence intended, I should have said "reminds me of". It was in jest, there was a wink at the end ;)

Remember having this phone briefly, the speakers were fantastic!

Anything more than 1GB ram is good for only £50. Hot.

Thinking of getting this for my mum. She's not had a smart phone before. Do you think this would be suitable?

She won't be downloading many apps I don't think. Probably just occasional web browsing and calls and texts.

Been a long time browser. Created an account because I'm furious with O2. Yesterday I ordered this mobile for store collection in London. All fine I got the order confirmation email. Today on the way to collect I get a "we are sorry there's a problem" email that order was cancelled. I still went in and the chap looked at my email and said they don't have the mobile to come back Monday. He did not even check the computer. I suspect staff keeping these mobiles.

Anyone else have their order cancelled? Should have used home delivery but thought was quicker instore. Don't want to mention which London store because we had words.

Thanks OP was a really good deal. Bit should be expired as all OOS now.

any ideas how to updated to marshmallow it's on 5.02 awful

Still available for collection at various London stores: Victoria Street, Notting Hill Gate, Kensington High St, Queensway, Hammersmith and so on. No need to expire deal yet.

i don't think o2 will ever release marshmallow for it now which is a shame mine seems to run OK on lollipop I disabled most apps and use nova prime and open developer options and stop animations it runs great and battery good

Deal needs to be expired. There will be no stock as all handsets have been recalled according to store.
