How to Record on the Alcatel One Touch Tribe Phone

By Faizah Imani

The OT-800, also known as the One Touch Tribe, was introduced to the Alcatel cellphone lineup in 2009. The device features a voice recorder that you can use to record audio voice notes. The audio voice notes are stored to your device's 20 MB of memory. One benefit of using voice notes is that you save time since it takes longer to type than it does to speak. If you keep a journal, use your voice notes to audibly capture your mood as you record your daily life events.

Step 1

Press the "OK" button from the home screen of your device.

Step 2

Press the round navigation key to scroll through all of the menu applications. Scroll to the "Notes" application and click "OK".

Step 3

Press the left "-" navigation key to reveal additional menu options. Scroll to "New Text Note/Voice Memo." Press "OK."

Step 4

Speak into your phone to record your message. The recorded message will automatically be saved.

Step 5

Listen your saved recording. To do so, return to the Notes application window. Press the left "-" key. Click "Open."

Tips & Warnings

  • To share your voice recording with others, press the left "-" key. Select "Send by SMS, MMS, Email or Bluetooth."
  • If you plan to record a lot of voice notes with your One Touch Tribe, it is recommended that you install a MicroSD memory card into the device's expansion slot. The device supports MicroSD cards of up to 4 GB.
