Yes, as an owner of the Alcatel OneTouch 983 I can confirm that Skype messenger is available from the Google Play store, and supports IMs and Voice Calls, both through the Skype app and IMO Messenger app without any issues (Internet connection with unlimited data plan required)

Hi,

I have spoken to the manufacturer and they advise that they haven't tested other applications, such as Skype, so cannot confirm compatibility.

Hope this helps, Thanks for using Argos Q&A

Hi,

I am sorry to say that the Alcatel One Touch 983 Mobile Phone will be locked to the SIM it is supplied with. In order to use your own SIM, you will need to buy a SIM free model of phone.

Hi,

Sorry for the slight delay in getting back to you. I am sorry to say that the model of the One Touch 983 Mobile Phone shown is locked to the T-Mobile network. Either look for one on your network already, or one that is sold as 'SIM free'.

Hope this helps, thanks for using Argos Q&A
