Alcatel OT-355


The phone and text works perfectly

No instructions with it or on line.Can't get it to connect properly to the internet,The Camera has very poor abilities to take a good photo that can be viewed as the screen is very dark. The Keys are very small and hard to distinguish when not lit up
