osa, 12 May 2017My Alcatel 5054n don't work with 3g it only works with 2g because of that the internet is slow... moreDo you live in an area which has good coverage? Try forcing the network in your device settings or try dialing *#*#4636#*#* in your dialer then go to "Phone Information" and scroll down to "Set Preferred network type" -> click on the drop down list -> Select WCDMA only. This will force 4G (essentially 3G, but they call it 4G since it's a better version of 3G). If after forcing this you don't get any signal then that means you don't have any 4G coverage in your area. Don't try forcing only LTE because you won't get any calls. I've experimented with this before and calls won't come in since the phone doesn't attempt to connect to 4G/2G for calls (since it is forced to LTE only). If WCDMA doesn't work for you then set the preferred network type back to the setting it was at which I believe is "LTE/GSM (auto PRL)"
My Alcatel 5054n don't work with 3g it only works with 2g because of that the internet is slow can any one tell me what to do
So far I'm trying to master / hard rest this thing . Forgot my info Nd it's a password my lil brother put on it while playing with my device .
I've followed every instruction to reset this thing Nd it keep restarting.. why ?
How do I get this phone to work on Straight Talk? It was unlocked after the 90 days required by MetroPCS and I have a SIM card in but anytime I try to change the APN settings so I can use it with ST it just says APN settings are not available for this user. What do I do?
This phone has a big screen which is great for watching videos. The camera is not the best, definitely not good for use at night. I got my phone in May 2016 with a one year warranty. When I got it, the sound sucked when recording video. It sounded distant and muffled. Sometimes when I'm using it, the phone will freeze for a minute or two and I'll have to restart it. Flash Forward December 2016 and one night my phone flashes a completely blue screen and then blacks out. Besides the charging light that comes on when I plug it in, it is completely unresponsive. I tried soft resetting (didnt work), called Alcatel manufacturer and the rep even walked me through a phone resetting process. Still nothing. I have to send my phone in for them to repair it. When they do they will wipe clean all of my data on my phone :( So I decided to upgrade to the ZTE Zmax Pro (I'm still having Alcatel fix it though). I feel this is a good first phone someone 15 and below.
Jim, 21 Oct 2016Does anybody know how to boost the audio volume on the new fierce 4???Can't conectell to WiFi or Bluetooth
Like T-Mobile (its parent company) and Deutsch Telekom, MetroPCS f*****g SUCKS! I have this handset, but cannot tell if it is as great as everybody thinks it is because I do NOT reside within five miles of an Interstate highway or within five miles of a major city......so my signal reception is a NIGHTMARE (even though the region that I live in is as flat as a pancake).
If you are NOT on an Interstate nor in a major city, do yourself a favour and spend the extra few dollars it costs to go with somebody like Verizon who features complete coverage!!!

Jb, 24 Apr 2016How to do a soft reset?soft reset:
 Press and hold power and volume up until you see the Alcatel Start up screen.
 Let go of the power button but do not let go of the volume up yet until you see the android recovery screen.
use the volume down to select the option REBOOT SYSTEM NOW
 Press power button to Select it
HOPE IT WORKS !!!!

Boy, we have some real cranks on here. I had tons of lousy phones from Virgin Mobile and switched to Metro PCS with this phone...not a single problem after a week. Have yet to test out the memory card with a 64 gig or higher card.

I hate it when people who have a weak grasp of android devices think they have the answer to everything.

I think Alcatel just quoted 32 gb because that's the max for SD, sdhc (in any class) . That way customers who don't know the different types of SD cards can just buy any old card up to 32 gb and not need to know the different classes or types. But the phone will read any size sdxc card.
