Alcatel 20.12G is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from inspired piece of work brilliant phone in the classic 'communicator' styling and easy to use as a phone, no buttons pushed while in your pocket and much better then these i pads that the 30 somethings try to use as phones, but keep getting cut off when their ear touches the screen and no random dialing either. It is packed full of features if you have the attention span to use the menu's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Looks like a great option for someone looking for a traditional-style clamshell, but it's let down by poor quality of basic functions. For example, text input is clunky, made much worse by a too-small dictionary that can't be added to, the camera might have a lot of megapixels, but photo quality is very poor, and the keypad is large, but with flat buttons that are hard to locate by touch. I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone, even at sale price. Oh, and CPW specifications say it's a touch screen phone, but it isn't, so don't expect web navigation to be anything but awful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Wifi Seems like a good phone, but I bought it thinking it had WiFi as it specifies it does on the phone specs section on the carphone warehouse page. So was sold this phone under false representation!
