After one month of service with this piece of shit phone I'm ready to find one that works. The idol overheats constantly and when I told the representative at cricket, they gave me the bull sit story that overheating was never reported previously to their knowlege. I will ship can this piece and purchase a phone that works.

your comment is very bad as well as the many others who have corrupted the phone they have d... moreI have not downloaded anything to this paperweight and I work as a DEVELOPER so shut up this phone is junk and so is their return policy, customer service, and is the main reason they are being sued in a Class Action Federal Lawsuit ! So I suggest all of the people here google search join the lawsuit to sue Alcatel and their parent company for FALSE ADVERSTIMENT !
Alcatel One Touch Idol X. I've been using this phone since 2014. Still using it now BUT I'm having a problem right now. I can't switch on my phone. Like what? I didn't even do anything. Like seriously WHY? Been trying for hours. Actually this happened last two days also. I tried asking someone who knew about this kind of problem, so they asked me to charge it to see if it'll work but nada. NONE! He said that my phone is ruin already. So I give up. But then, the day after, my phone work. WOW! Amazing. Haha. But no. I can't switch on again today. What is the actual problem with this Alcatel?
What a terrible & useless mobile it is !!
The Alcatel 5.5 touch one is a terrible mobile I had. It get very hot in few minutes. and I have to siwtch if off or bring neawr an air conditioner to cool it down. I will never ever recommdend
it to anyone. Kindly note it price in the market went went down by 35% since I bought it two months ago. I regret I bought it. !!
Only had this phone since feb. I bought the case and sreen protector. the first one lasted till may when it fell off my bed a whole foot down and cracked the screen and wouldnt recognize my touch. so I dished out 75$ for a replacement phone and now the screen is totally unresponsive to my touch but its opening apps and having a blast by itself. worst phone ever.

Alcatel products are worthless. Pricey but worthless. I paid $125.00 for this piece of shit phone and thought it would be worthy because of its price. First of all the reception is horrible. I had major issues with people hearing me on the other end. When I told this to Alcatel they tried to blame it on my service provider. Please. Within 5 months of purchasing this piece of shit, the phone went completely mute. The ringer, incoming text, email notifications all silent and the phone was not on vibrate. I literally had to watch my phone to see if it was ringing because I couldn't hear it. When I tried to use Alcatel's one year warranty, they had the nerve to make the customer return phone to them at customer's expense. Not to mention Alcatel has some of the rudest customer support representatives ever. Even after they fixed phone they didn't even tell me what the problem was. What reason would a phone that cost $125.00 just go bezerk in 5 months. As if that wasn't enough, within 2 months of me receiving that crappy phone back the text message indicator wouldn't clear and basically telling me I received a text even though I didn't. When I reported it to Alcatel of course they want me to send them the phone at my expense and I of course declined and said the hell with it. I'll just deal with it and wait for this piece of shit to completely combust. Little did I know that would happen 8 months later. That's right, Alcatel One Touch's battery of only 13 months old died and needed to be replaced. Obviously, I wouldn't sink one more cent into this piece of shit so needless to say my Alcatel One Touch is being used for no more than a overpriced paperweight. I replaced it with a real phone where the people I'm speaking to can actually hear what I'm saying so it was not my provider as Alcatel tried to elude to. People do your homework before you purchase your phone and read reviews. Don't be like me and many others. In summary Alcatel, your phones are crappy and good riddance.
ALCATEL ONE TOUCH (idol) IS THE WORST PHONE I HAVE EVER HAD!Do not purchase this phone.It gets the worst reception,will have no bars in so many places (where all my other phones did).It always feel hot,the battery is the worst ever.Goes dead faster than any phone I've ever had.It drops calls all the time and won't let you read text messages that are too long.Says to download, then won't download them. Can't put your personal signature on your text messages.I could go on and on,its horrible!I'm actually considering using my old phone with a craked screen...seriously.You'll hate it and you'll be frusterated with it everyday i promise you.
The worst phone I have ever had; programming is totally incompetent - describing it as garbage flatters it.
Steve D, 03 Aug 2015I'm on week 2 with my One Touch and I love it! I migrated from iOS for my personal phone. I ha... moreI was in a war zone, had a HTC that made it home with me, I used it for music when I had the chance to listen. I have been through 2 Alcatel one touch idol 3 due to the phone turning on, and turning right back off after reaching the main screen. So yea it is crap

I hate this phone. I have one app and can't install anything else. I can't store photos, always deleting messages because even with a SD card, it says I have no room in memory. But it only has a small amount showing taking up space. I can't update pre-installed apps.
Very worst piece of crap in existence.. thankfully also a cheap piece of crap. Thankfully also this phone will serve to teach folks what a useless company this is... my guess is they wil be forced to rebrand. 150mb internal ram? In 2016? Seriously? Can't download jack shit, bombs out constantly, browser closes from lack of ram. Ensure you stay aeay from alacatel if you'd prefer a stress free existence. Crap, utter crap..you'd be better served sending smoke signals.

I was using this phone for 2 years (2013-2015) and never had any issues to report. Amazing phone for that price. Still have it, packed in the box. Loved the camera. When there's a good lightning you can make stunning photos.
Giving it max stars! Recommendations!
