  1. i think dis is d answer sa kalituhan ko.....im planning to buy kc astra or cloudfone.....na chek nito lahat ng needs ko...dualcore.camera..ram..battery..16million colors...at may p2i pa..at ang pinaka gus2 ko is quality...d2 cgurado ako sa alcatel.astig tlga d2 nako!hehehe....tnx nga pla sa nagpost!

  2. ayun yung hinahanap ko sa ibang phone eh 1gb ram haha! ganda ng quality ng cam nito. di nga lang IPS.

  3. I'll try to ask from Alcatel Philippines about USB-OTG on this phone. Also, after some research most said that there is an USB-OTG, but it is not implemented on the Alcatel 997D and only USB tethering is supported, but during the time I published this post some websites said it support "USB-OTG"

  4. It is not clear whether USB-OTG lacks only in the software (as for Nexus 7, where a kernel patch can add it) or is missing in the hardware, too (Alcatel people did not reply to this question).
    Any news about the possibility of using an external bluetooth keyboard?

  5. Meron po
    (Update: Not working on the Alcatel 997D)

  6. Anyone successfully using USB OTG on this phone? I ordered two cables, the first one arrived, and it does not work for me. Two persons from Alcatel tell that it is not implemented:

  7. OK, it is very interesting for me, especially direct connection between two smartphones.
    I need an USB hub for another reason, too, then I will try to use it with the smartphone, too; if you want, I can post results of my tests. Now I have to wait for delivery of the needed stuff :-)
    In the meantime, thank you for your replies.

  8. I don't know if (USB hub) it will work, but I found something that will work using USB-OTG (Photo below) like gamepads and accessing another smartphone. Btw, keyboard and mouse works well too.

  9. Thank you very much.
    I just have an USB keyboard wandering at home, it could finally become more useful :)
    Sorry if it is a dumb question, I am a newbie about smartphones... has anyone tried to use USB-OTG on this phone with an USB hub? I would like to connect it to a keyboard, an USB key, maybe a mouse, and, why not, MHL-HDMI-FullHD TV!

  10. I replied "Meron," a shortened version of "mayroon" or "there is" and according to Alcatel 997D users, USB-OTG is working on this phone.

  11. OK, thanks... and what does the reply mean? Does USB OTG work on this smartphone?
    Thank you!

  12. Sir, Mr. Ramirez is just asking if the phone can support USB-OTG. "Po" is added to Tagalog/Filipino sentences in order to show respect :)


  13. Sorry, I am italian and I don't know what "po ba to" means for USB-OTG; can you explain?

  14. okay thanks! :D

  15. USB-OTG support po ba to?

  16. Opo, sa Alcatel Kiosk o Wellcom sa SM City.
