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

This phone does not have proper dual SIM switch widget (on/off), as well as many if not all dual SIM phones. This fact defeats the point of having two cards for the most of us. Therefore, if you want to turn one card on/off from time to time, I strongly suggest using Google Play app called Dual SIM Switch...

Hi,
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?

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.

i reply to you with "or maybe they looking for android L..." cuz u asking what does it mean by high OS, well L is high.

There is an existing update to the Idol x + to kitkat 4.4.2 (India)
I have updated it, and it works perfectly fine. There are small issues mainly with the UI.
(1. The color of the network signal is always white irrespective of what you choose.
2. The camera widget does not work from the lock screen.)

There is another update... Currently it's in progress...
