In this article I talk about a Alcatel CAB30P0000C1 3.7 v battery 850mah MF100 One Touch 639, I acquired for a device Alcatel One Touch MF 100, that is quite popular, It was sold with Clear Fixed plans.
I have a clear Fixed, bought em 2013, that uses exactly this device. Despite being “fixed”, This is a handset with CDMA technology, the second generation of mobile telephony, It was also used by mobile telephony Live. The course curiously never adopted CDMA on their cell phones, but the use of technology in fixed is understandable since the light was Fixed the Embratel Free, prior to the merger.
Unfortunately the CDMA technology was abandoned in favour of GSM technology, that is less than, but has the advantage of the possibility to bring the number to a SIM Card (the popular “chip”), facilitating the exchange of appliance, In addition to save money from carriers that do not need to pay royalties to Qualcomm. Vivo made this change with cell phones even in the past decade. The course did more recently.
The course does not enable more phones with CDMA technology. Now she only enables GSM technology, and sends the SIM Card for the customer to place it on a cellphone any.
But who still have Clear fixed with CDMA technology can continue using, because the CDMA signal is still active. Or at least can continue using while the device resist, because if it malfunctions need to be replaced by a GSM. Sooner or later the light will kill CDMA in time.
At the time, acquire the Fixed of course because he was much cheaper than the alternative, What are the fixed wired Live. The course was charging just R$ 20 per month for the subscription, entitled to unlimited calls to any fixed-Brazil. Vivo charged twice that only by line, with just a few minutes of local calls.
Furthermore, the clear Fixed still has the advantage of being able to be used as a mobile phone within the city. Although he theoretically only work at the installation site, in practice it works all over town.
The signature value remained the same for more than 3 years. Only last year was readjusted to R$ 30, still a good value. Who wants to make a subscription today ends up paying much more than that.
Where I live just to Live has a decent GSM signal. The of course is bad. The Tim is non-existent. Or? Never even seen. Because of this, I have special interest in my Alcatel One Touch MF 100 have long life.
The Alcatel One Touch MF 100 is a very half-assed, the keys fail all the time, sometimes pressing not detected, Sometimes he tells two rings instead of a. Try calling customer service to be typing numbers is a nightmare. Enter credit card number? Good luck! But there's not much you can do, change appliance would mean having to migrate to GSM, and then I may have to cancel the subscription for lack of signal.
Recently my Alcatel One Touch MF 100 began to present more of a problem, In addition to the usual: the battery it started last less than half an hour. It was enough to take the base and make a call a little longer to ever hear the knocking noise low.
How to buy a new appliance is not an option, the way was out after a new battery, and that's how I researched and found the Alcatel CAB30P0000C1 3.7 v battery 850mah MF100 One Touch 639. Check out unboxing and in the pictures and videos below:
I found it rather suspect the battery manufacturing date: 19/08/2013, with that came with my unit is 15/09/2012. I got a battery with more than 4 years since the manufacture, and with marks on the contacts that I consider as signs of use. But she worked properly and fairly hard. Maybe it is not new as advertised, but at least it's still good. Unfortunately that's what we have…
With that my Alcatel One Touch MF 100 won a survival, and I'm tolerating it, even with its faults, even when he last.
