I got this as my first smart phone as well and I personally love it. It's easy to mess around with and way better than my last flippy phone. It's also really nice an cheap =)
I hate this phone... The screen freezes constantly, and today it just stopped working (the screen) Text don't send or come in on time. Incredibly hard to use because of the constant glitches and freezing. Do yourself a favor, and spend a little more and get something way better
I love this as my first smart phone. finally gave up on my flip phones mainly because of no desire to text on those it was so difficult and time consuming. I use it for unltd talk and text and no web data, which is fine because I prefer my laptop for web use. great buy at only $50 for an upgrade from flip phone to smart phone!

i just bought this phone a couple weeks ago, brand new! and it freezes everytime i get off the internet, the front camera is dark, and doesn't show good quality. as well as the back.and, the censors are messed up. i click one thing and it does something different. so, i no have to find a new phone and switch out, this phone is awful.. i don't recommend this phone to anyone!
I just brought the Alcatel and it's the first time I own a smart phone, I always had a grandma phone, the flip flop. I'm have a very hard time learning this phone. It's not friendly user phone, even with the manual. Is there a website where it will teach you how to use it?
I recently got this phone and the battery runs down in about 13 hours. It also takes me 6 hours to fully charge the battery again. Do I need a new battery? Everything else works fine.
jade, 15 Mar 2014this phone is not bad at all I do Skype and lots more stuff on it it's amazing all some people... moreHi Jade, When you Skype do people ever tell you that the pic is dark? I have the app on the phone but people are always saying the picture is very dark and no I am not covering up the front camera with my finger. Even when just trying to take a regular "selfie" the pic is dark, but if I switch the camera around the colors, etc are great.
j diggy, 02 Mar 2014This phone is hot garbage..it cuts u out of google..it freezes, its like 56k when sending lots... morethis phone is not bad at all I do Skype and lots more stuff on it it's amazing all some people does is post a pack of lies please stop.
I think they should make a software update for this phone one that increases the battery, lets u turn off the 3 touch lights and the setting should have a black background cuz white drains ur battery more. Also silent mode should not vibrate it should let u change that. And fix the heating problem my phone gets hott after 5 mins
You get what you pay for, I own the phone and dont use the internet on it, and it does what i need it to do
This phone is hot garbage..it cuts u out of google..it freezes, its like 56k when sending lots of texts..it has ni camera flash...straight garbage..
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2014i want this phone but all the reviews ive seen say bad things about it, should i get it?That's how I feel, I want this phone too but all I see is negative reviews bout it
Honestly, if i were you i wouldn't get the phone. I have it. The front camera is horrible it barely holds any apps. Hey I'm trying to save up so that i can get the galaxy S2
jtroy, 22 Jan 2014as a basic entry level phone for 55 bucks its a great deal gets the basics done reasonably as ... morewanted to add that rooting and getting rid of the Tmobile bloatware and adding Ultimate Call Screen and Magic Launcher is the way to go. Keep everything to a minimum and the phone is fine. Again dont expect miracles at this price level but its defintely a decent phone at the price. you can easily spent 2-3 times as much and get less than this phone
