The most pathetic phone. You can't even edit a contact number. Its a waste. Please do not buy. Spend some extra money and buy better.
Alcatel one touch pixie 4.4 is an inferior quality phone for any price. The texting system does not sense the correct letters or numbers and makes it impossible to text a whole sentence in less than 10 minutes.

Before you buy the phone you were informed about the specifications of the phone, but you're wanted for a little money to have a better performance, means should you have to choose a better model that costs more money and not now criticizing unnecessarily.
Don't trust Alcatel ! What sort of company puts out a phone without a COMPASS and fails to tell consumers? It's like putting out a car without a steering wheel.
- so little storage you will run out of space in a week or so
- you can't transfer many apps to SD card
I will never buy from Alcatel again because clearly you can't trust them.

do not like to ''root'' the phone, because it becomes an easy target for infection . This means that it has to spoil the phone, because '-vir us- ' will corrupting the android system and eventually become worthless brick . SD card will not help much because all the apps that you can not switch into SD card and those that are transferred they still using the internal memory and only solution is to have as few installed applications. but there are cases where , despite a small amount of installed applications and ( you delete a few) but still shows low internal memory , then it is best to delete all pictures and videos with the internal memory and if the internal memory does not increase then do a reset on the phone, so all data will be deleted and the phone will start as when it was new
It's awesome for the price you pay. If you want S7 bang for 50 bucks, you are dreaming.
Never had a problem with it. 4G LTE. Battery life is great. Outstanding as a GPS using Here Maps/CoPilot. Camera is probably biggest disappointment - fixed focus and can't recognise QR codes because it won't focus that close.
Qualifications: I disabled A LOT of junk inbuilt apps; but then - I always do. Installed a micro SD card (mostly for MP3's). I turn off Wifi/Data until I need it, and battery lasts over a week between charges. Mine came with Android 5.1. It was a prepaid but since unlocked.

I have just got two of these phones for my little boys, I have had to do a lot of tweaking to it, but works fine, pokemon go is on it too. (download it from app store not Google play) But it is a little slow. Was wondering if an SD card will help this...also I have read a lot about "root" no idea what it means though and not sure if I should or not.... any advice would be appreciated.

do not bother with this phone if you only want calls & texts. personally i am not happy with it though am persevering.
In my honest opinion, save your money.
This phone has crap memory, glitchy programming, randomly crashes/freezes+resets and has shit battery life.
Sometimes when you're typing, it will randomly register the surrounding keys of the letter/number you meant to type, kinda like a joke phone and it will randomly press the home/back button.
Sometimes when you're checking emails, the screen will flash white till you refresh the page, also it randomly freezes/crashes at times and takes almost 3 minutes to reset.
3) battery life:
When this phone is on 15% and under, the battery literally drains and counts down in seconds. It also takes almost 3 hours to charge from 0-100
In conclusion, if you're thinking about getting this phone as a quick fix, you're better of getting a classic Nokia flip top phone then getting a crappy phone with terrible glitchy programming as this one has. Save your money.
JACK, 11 Jul 2016my storage phone 1.32
.not like you say 4 gb
Internal memory is 4GB but is divided into 2GB for Android system and 2GB for the user . so installing new applications, fotos, music, videos, etc, reduces internal memory
However, I advise you to put micro SD card into the phone , because some applications can be transferred to the SD card , and all images, video's mp3's switch to the SD card , and set the phone to default storage to SD card to release of the data in the internal memory of the phone

to these circumstances could result from an application that you installed , which is connected to the camera , uninstall the app will solve the problem
Couldn't find any results of the phone I have, the elevate 5017b. So I'll just have to say how horrible a phone had to be for it to not exist? Horrible, horrible product. Froze and was stuck in reboot loop, reset only works with factory reset. Did this two weeks after purchasing, and twice more the following month! Apps and reboot randomly, general performance is lag, force closings, etc.
