NASNAN3, 17 May 2015This is the stupidist piece of shit phone I've ever seen! And the user manual, seriously???? ... moreIt is difficult at best.. I now type exactly what I need to know and the info is clear and easy to follow directions.. It is the oddest phone I've ever seen. Just use your computer to ask questions..
This is the stupidist piece of shit phone I've ever seen! And the user manual, seriously???? Jesus Christ, my magnifying glass needs a magnifier! I can't figure anything out, can't read the manual, can't delete anything, can't answer calls....what a waste of money! It beeps once when I get a text message and then if I'm lucky I'll catch the tiny blinking light that is supposed to be my notification...how do you perform voice dialing? How can I just open the phone and make a call? What the hell? I can;t even pay my bill with it, says downlowd the app which I've done at least 10 times and nothing, sure wish I would have read the reviews before I spent so much money! Now because I couodn;t pay my bill looks like I'll have to pay even more than the monthly fees to get it to what...not work again? Absolutely ridiculous piece of crap!
please help me,when my alcatel one touch was sent 2m,i gave an engineer 2 unlock d fone 4me,after unlocking d fone i av put all sims bt but d fone is not bringin network..it has been like dat for months now...pls wot shud i do 4d fone 2 bring network..tanx
It's honestly not a good phone. I constantly have problems with it all the time. The volume even went out all of a sudden for no reason. I got a replacement because the first one wouldn't turn back on, & it still has the same issues!
nothing but problems from day one...absolute worst phone ever....and no one wants to make it right..not metro or alcatel. piece of junk. this is not bashing, it is the honest truth. i even got a replacement after having the first one about 30 days and it has the same issues.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015So just got this phone like a month ago and and it randomly goes black screen and I can't unlo... moreI absolutely given up on my Alcatel phone ..it locked all on its own ...took me all the the nexed morning to have unblocked and has not worked probley since,,,, should be interesting because im ringing tomorrow and i want a new phone mmmmm definitely not the same phone ...if i don't get new phone from O2 or three as its called today IWILL be changing to a different company !!!!
I love this phone its fast and I have no problem with it, and it last a long time.
I bought this phone in Jan 2015 and have had nothing but problems since I,m a Metro customer and they will not replace it either so I.m extremely aggravated and at my wits end and I can,t nor should I have to buy another phone seeing as how its only 4months old
That 1 guy, 29 Jan 2015My Alcatel Fierce 2 works great, especially for the price. I have had many complements, people... moreWow...I wish I could say the same!! Lol. I have MetroPCS also, and I've had Nothing But Problems since the first 2-3 wks!! There are KNOWN and Documented comparability issues with Privacy Star, which sponsors Metro Block-It, but the salesperson failed to mention That lil tidbit when I bought it, even though he Saw that I had Metro Block-It. This phone is also Not Compatible with Chrome cast (so much for Showbox)! And I've also been forced to apologize to a couple people about Not Returning a text (or texting back...half hour to 6 HOURS LATER!!!). there have also been several occasions when ppl claimed they never received a certain text from me, but Nowhere Near the same frequency as Incoming Texts! I'm so frustrated! And I Realize the phone was only $30, but I had Just purchased a new phone Just Prior to Metro switching from CDMA to GSM network, and I'm a single mom who was recently laid off, so, unfortunately, money is Real Tight right now, Otherwise I'd be All Over a new phone Already!! Lol.
I've had the phone for over 14 months and it's been the best one I've had. Yes,there's better phones out there,but not for the money,imo. I only paid $130. for it in Toronto Canada. Sure it's labeled T-Mobile,but it's a pentaband handset so it will work on my network(wind mobile). The next one I want is the idol 3,looks awesome!
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2015I had all these same problems with my Fierce 2. All you have to do is go to your apps and sele... moreI did a system update and the phone has been frozen since last night 😔
Anonymous, 07 Feb 2015Had the same problem until I downloaded the update to Android OS. It's in the About Phone, Ch... moreHad the same problem and it never updated the Android OS.i was pissed and confused.
Phone ain't worth the powder it would take to blow it up. And I was stupid enough to try "Alkytel" a second time! The first crap phone worked better than the newer model, but not by much. Going back to Kyocera early models.
chewwy, 13 Mar 2015Can anyone tell me how do I down load pictures and video to my computer from the Alcatel phone... moreI use a wifi transfer app, but you can also plug a data transfer cable from phone to computer usb port, then find your phone in file explorer.
It's a good deal at MetroPCS's $30 price point but my Alcatel One Touch Fierce 2 is glitchy. When I'm on a call I can see the screen illuminating out the corner of my eye and often it mysteriously opens the Date and Time setting, sometimes changing the the time zone, or switching to 24-hour time. At other times it has mysteriously opened my anti-virus app. I could live with those oddities but the one glitch I cannot suffer is the inability of the phone to reliably run Google Maps. When I need my GPS navigation the app tells me, "GPS signal lost". After staring me uselessly in the face, the little blue position arrow on the map unmoving, it may, after several minutes decide to work; usually not. I've reset the phone to factory settings but still have the same issue. Apart from those glitches the phone is a spectacular deal. Still, I see a ZTE ZMAX in my immediate future to replace this three month old phone.
I bought my Alcatel One touch fierce August-ish in 2013 from T-mobile. It has not given me any problems. I currently have the following apps: all recipes,fb, google calendar, pandora, news, messenger, photo collage maker, duolingo, and two other school related apps. The battery life lasts me about 8 to 10 hours if I charge my phone over night. I seriously recommend getting a case for this phone. I have dropped mine quite a few times (and a few "f" bombs as well) and only has minor scratches on the screen. All in all the phone is nice, sleek, good battery life, loud speaker, front camera definitely needs to be better. I would not recommend this phone for a person that is constantly on their phone's apps (like a teenager). I would however recommend it for a person that uses it a few times during the day like a wife, student, mother (like myself) etc.
