I initially was excited about my idol 3 until 2 weeks later. I CANNOT receive my text messages unless someone calls me or I make a call. There has got to be a way to fix this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm on week 2 with my One Touch and I love it! I migrated from iOS for my personal phone. I have had an Android work phone for 2 years before this and a BB before that. I don't know what some of these FT's do with their phones
I guess f you're in a war zone or jumping off roof tops, you can break any phone. If you're just an average working guy like me and a free phone sounds.like a good deal, I have zero complaints. It kicks the snot out of my Galaxy S4 work phone. In fact, I'm thinking of having an accident with the Samsung because it's a POS compared to my Alcatel.
Alcatel mobile is good,
but one time happened damage this phone not recover easily because again continue that problem and huge amount of service.
Eg: Alcatel One Touch Idol-2 6037K model rate 12,500/- but this model display rate 7,500/-
So, Dont buy this any alcatel mobile..
this is my request.
alcatel is one of worst mobile company i purchsed two mobiles same day and with in 15 days both got dead one is in service center and 2nd screen got damaged and new screen is more costly thn new mobile so its my suggestion dont go for alcatel product chines mobile are far better thn acatel
I already gave up hope about a update for my idol but when I installed apus launcher i feel like i have a new phone. Im really glad i did. Now i just can't help gawking at my 2yr old idol. The beautiful display is even more enhanced and the camera never ceases to amaze me:-)
Why my alcatel one touch fierce 2 can't open? It stuck between the logo: (
all my alcatel does is turn off and on until its dies. what can I do to fix it??
This and every other phone that Alcatel makes are toatle POS. don't buy them. When you get it you will be happy for a few weeks then little things will start to now work sometimes like the keyboard... Then the camera.... Then the whole phone. And evenchally you will be restarting your phone 2 times a day and recharging the battery all the time. DO NOT BUY IT unless you are like the people from the sprint commercial and who are stupid rich and don't care.
my idol mini can't use for 6 months then now i tried to charge it, but it is not working. what can i do??

after 2 years i have a very good experience, excellent screen,very bright, good ram management. only drawbacks are some random crashes, battery and the lack of android updates.

Ive been usng this phone for 2 years and ive never enjoy using this phone. The apps always crashes everytime i use. I only use it for calling, texting and listening to mp3. Its a total waste of money, its not cheap when i bought this I need to subscribe my cellular phone to SUN postpaid plan. I thought its the cheapest thing to do. But i was wrong coz the phone doesnt work smoothly.

This is the worst phone ever made. I could kick myself for going for the cheapest phone that had a large screen. From day one, it was one problem after another. First, it wouldn't sleep, just drained the battery, next turned it's self off or on. Then it completely took over location access and Bluetooth capability. I've returned it to Straight Talk, and they are supposed to send me another one, but I think I should be saving my money for a new phone.
I have used this phone for three months only when the screen started to scroll itself. It operates itself without me touching the screen. until now i wasn't able to have it repaired because according to the service center i went through. the phone has touch problem. i am so disappointed with this product. although i am impressed with the camera. when you are using the phone like texting for quite a long time..the battery becomes hot. the same when charging the phone.
