Consumer review by: Confirmed purchaser (

Alcatel OT-E221


Quite large, easy to read and manage keypad, suitable for very young and the elderly users, or other people with bad eyesight.

Don't like the cover on the charger dock, it is bound to fall off eventually! None of the more expensive features of course.

Alcatel OT-E221


this phone is lightweight and easy to use. there are not a lot of features to confuse you. on screen instructions are very clear. very good as a first phone

the volume isn't very loud and when its windy your voice is distorted to the other caller
