You just have to tell what is going on, not an answer that is not measurable as simple as that. You have to tell that i have no resources to do it as simple as that! This Alcatel company is like a zombie, selling phones without support, no ears to customers, they just don't care! But in fairness to them, this is common practice of most business, they are not the only one!
I will wait patiently for the next update ... But the sad part is that the hardware that we own has enough juice to suport the new Lolypop! The company is forceing you to buy newer devices to get newer software .... :(

Especially if it's only a few thousands nerds talking on forums. Most of other customers don't even wait for an update or don't update their phone at all.

Or they are partners! Telling the truth would be a disaster to them! Not like the Sony company that they don't give false hope, that is ethics! Even if they would loose the market!

I know they are a few beta kitkat roms for Idol X but they are full of bugs, just be patient if you don't change your phone eventually. Anyway kitkat is overrated.
This phone software is walking dead, no more upgrades, i have recently emailed Alcatel for the third time and they keep saying, it would be upgraded to higher OS, until now more than a year since its release no upgrade to kitkat but to lollipop, its a joke!!! Don't buy any model of all the Alcatel phones as they are lyers! Not like Sony they are honest enough to tell that they could not support it anymore
Shouldn't SAR for head be lower than SAR for body?In the description is the opposite!
I have an idolx 6040(d) it make me difficult. I reconnect from again and agian with provider. I just cut the connection during the phone because it reconnect the provider. An today it said me there are some udates and I allowed the updates. Now it frozen. I can not restart or reboot. With aother phones it was possible to take out battery for a restart. here not. I see that it was a mistake to buy this phone...

Hi All, I was planning to buy a Alcatel Onetouch Idol X+. I wanted to know If I have value for money, can I use apps like Whatsapp, Facebook, Linked In etc. Please let me know if I can go ahead with this buy or do you'll suggest any other mobile with the above mentioned features and benefits including value for money!!!
I have a Alcatel Onetouch 6040A with current firmware version 4.2.2-02001.
My phone keeps telling me there is Update Info available, 03001_20140804_191816, 160MB??
For the past couple of weeks I've been attempting to download this update,,,, but the update keeps failing???
Has anyone else experienced this issue??
Does anyone know any fix to this?
ntdl, 20 Oct 2014it hasnt been a year since i owned idolx and the problems keep coming from auto shutting down,... moreYou probably have to replace the phone, it is defective.
I have Idol X for 6 months already, no single issue mentioned.
No overheating at all/ even when I use it as GPS in car for hours (hooked to car's power), it runs just slightly warm.
I optimized it with GS monitor app., used static wifi IP, it keeps power for more that 3 days a single charge with mediocre use. So it can't produce lot of heat at all.
