The phone is amazing and I love it, but I just need to upgrade it to 4.4! I sent them an email and they said that the 4.3 upgrade will be out in the near future, but they have no clue if it will get the 4.4 upgrade. If someone knows a good and safe way to root and upgrade the phone to 4.4, I'd appreciate it if they share it here.

This phone broke in my pocket, was not droped, was not abused. Brought it back to the store to show them the one crack in my screen "sorry can't help you". Woke up the next morning 5 addition cracks in the screen, are you kidding me. I refuse to buy another cell phone until they make a screen thats indestructible. This phone is junk.
Called there hot line to complain no answer.
So mad,
Hey alcatel one touch, last the last dollar you get from me

This phone is garbage. The people who did the programming and testing for this product are worthless and shouldn't be aloud to make anything ever again. Bugs bugs and more bugs, this thing is barely usable.

I've been using this phone for more than a year now (Sun Plan 600), single sim version.
I just love its rear and front cam. Good at taking selfies especially outdoor.
The disadvantage probably is the RAM since mine only got 512mb. Its fast in browsing the internet using Opera Mini. Playing videos is good due to the resolution.
If you are looking for a midrange android phone that will give you your basic needs like surfing the internet, calling, texting with a very nice cam, then this one is for you..

And i just removed my screen protection today (the reason why I am here in the first place). Do I need to buy one or it is okay to leave it like this since it has Dragontrail glass? I dont use my phone that much. 😄

Cons: I had a problem to charge my 6030D. Sometimes it is impossible to turn on the phone. Moreover, it was difficult to charge the phone. It misbehaves as little child: sometimes it cannot be charged at all. Pros: It is stable android system, without bugs, works properly when it is charged.

When you adjust your date settings advanced and received messages, the next time you turn it back to normal date settings, current messages that are being receive don't register on it's latest messages instead they go to the middle lines of your inbox. And you'll be having a hard time scrolling your screen to the middle just to read the messages. Can't alcatel make it like the last messages goes still to its end of lines no matter what time it is received. I guess they had just used the receiving date in ascending order which should not be. This will be difficult to the people travelling to different date lines. This will just scramble their messages on inbox.
