How to Use an Alcatel Mobil Phone

By William Pullman

Advances in technology have changed mobile phones from strictly communication devices to communication and multimedia tools. An Alcatel mobile phone combines the standard calling and text messaging features with multimedia options, such as a music player, which allows you to listen to your favorite songs while on the go. In order to make calls, create text messages and listen to music, you need to learn how to use each feature.

Calls

Step 1

Enter the phone number of the person you are calling and press "Send." The "Send" button is the round button on the left side of the phone with the green mark on it. If you make a mistake while dialing, press the right soft key to delete the number. The soft keys are the two buttons located just under the LCD screen. The command listed on the screen above the soft keys determines what function is performed when the button is pressed.

Step 2

Press the "Down Arrow" button, choose the "Directories icon," then select "Phone Directory" or "General." A list of your contacts will appear on the screen. Highlight the contact you want to call then press "Send."

Step 3

Answer incoming calls by pressing "Send."

Step 4

End calls by pressing the "End Call" button. The "End Call" button is located on the right of the phone above the keypad and has a red mark on it.

Text Messaging

Step 1

Open the main menu and select "Messages" from the list of options then choose "New." If the person you are sending the message to is saved to your phone, open the "SIM Directory" or "General" directory to access your contacts. Highlight the contact, choose "Options" then "Send Message."

Step 2

Type the message you want to send then enter the phone number of the person receiving the message. You do not need to enter the phone number of the contact if you are sending the message to a contact in your phone's memory.

Step 3

Select "Send" to send the message.

Step 4

Open received messages by selecting "Messages," "Inbox" then the message you want to read.

Music Player

Step 1

Choose "Music Player" from the main menu to bring up a list of music player options.

Open one of the song filtering options by highlighting it then pressing the "OK" button. A list of your songs will appear on the screen. The filtering options are: "All Songs," "My Star List," "Folders," "Album," "Artist" and "Genre."

Step 3

Highlight the song you want to play and press the "OK" button to start playback.

Step 4

Press the "Right Arrow" button to skip to the next song on the list, the "Left Arrow" to go back to the previous song on the list and the "OK" button to pause playback.
