It takes a different sim card than my old phone, but I found out you can cut the large sim card down to fit if you have the smaller version to trace a pattern (it saves you the extra expense of a new one and you keep your old phone number) and if you line it up properly you can still put it in a phone that uses the larger one.
I've only had mine for a few days now, I just graduated from a flip phone.
It's my first "Smart Phone" and so far, it looks like there will be No going back... We're already picking out curtains. Lol "Great phone for the money"
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2015This shit is stupid and can't receive text messages when sent I will get it hours later but ov... moreHad the same problem until I downloaded the update to Android OS. It's in the About Phone, Check for System Updates. Hope that helps.
Loved it. But lately my touch screen keyboard isn't working properly. I can get about 3 characters in before it freezes and returns to the homescreen. I've only had it for 2 months, and have not downloaded a crazy amount of apps (the ones I did download are on my SD card). And I havent been to any crazy websites. Mainly google. Is anyone else having this problem? And if so, how did you fix it?
Nice phone but if it is cold out the phone almost completely shut down, I have to take battery out and warm the phone up in order for it to work again
I've had this phone for approx. 8 months. Loved it at first. Had to do a hard reset and I lost everything. Now I can receive a call but the caller cannot hear me. I can only text. Buying a different phone!!!
My Alcatel Fierce 2 works great, especially for the price. I have had many complements, people think it is a 200-300 phone. I paid only 30$ at Metro. No problems yet, phone works like a charm, excellent screen size and resolution, great processor. I here so many people whining about this phone, really? Then go dish out 300-400$ for the phone of your dreams. I 100% recommend it and thank you Alcatel for making great phones available at great prices for the working man like myself.
I went to update my phone and it has been on0% for over a month now what do I do if I reset it will I lose my stuff
It wont update what do I do it has been saying it is updating for over a month now
Personally I love it. I can't believe the price its selln for with the the appearance and overall capabilities it offers.its everything I expected it to be and more.the salesman I talked to at met&ro store really down played it,danced around it both during his pitch and also when I questioned him about it.he was pushing the galaxy the lg90 and 70 . when he saw he had no chance of selln me a 3 or 400$ phone he really pitched the hell outta the zte savvy or something like it by zte and even two other phones in the 50$range 1 Samsung light and a water proof unit by some offbrand unit began with a k I've seem a lot item in the past 3-4 mo & they offered similar memory price & apps but not near the appearance ,processor capability ,
or upgradeable memory & especially not to mention the phenominal screen size and resolution that Alcatel offered in the fierce 2. So I kept dragging him back to the fierce when he was discussing the alternatives to buying a 400$ galaxy 5 and I kept bringing to question The amazing similarities in qualities that the fierce had to the400$ galaxy five for less than 25% of the price and was the only phone of near it's cost that shared that many important similarities & the only one that shared its screen size!its an excellent phone for the money and since I'm a middle class working man with children I really appreciate alcatels dedication to producing a great alternative to buying a 400$ cell phone,and offering people that don't have disposable income the opportunity to own a good cell phone that I can enjoy high speed internet, quality photos,crystal clear conversation with and without a headset and high quality sound volume and HD pic for streaming music videos n much more! Thanx alcatel congrats on the homerun you hit with this phone.
kira, 06 Jan 2015It is a very very bad phone !! Since the first day I can not delete contacts, shut of all the ... moreMine works fine. Service drifts in and out sometimes but all providers do that where I'm at...for the price and rate no complaints..always has phone service the web does tend to drift in and out..but hey I'm in the boonies where most won't work at all..I'm really impressed with is the fact that I can program the phone on other towers...people should learn more about there phone..
Well I don't have any problem with this phone, I had it for 4 months. Most of you people complaining how bad this phone is, But tell people exactly how much crap you downloading on this phone. hey you get what you pay for. If you download lots of crap obviously its going to work like a piece of crap! Enough said :))
At the price point, my only reasonable complaint is that, in temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, the center of the screen is... messed up. I'm not sure how to describe it, but if you're in a cold area (assuming this is not just happening for me) don't buy it. The messed upness is pretty noticeable, and bugs me all the time. And no, I don't jam my finger into the screen. I'm a normal user.
It's really a good phone for the price. It is pretty fast. The one con of the phone is the touch screen ita not at all sensitive but overall it gets a 7/10
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2015I think it depends on who all of y'all are with b/c none of that happens to my fierce 2What carrier do you use. Because I am gonna be with iwireless when I get mine in a few days.
The phone works fine for me I've had it since Christmas and I can't really complain since I only paid $50 😏 the only issue I have is that I put my SD card in, and it tells me that my memory is full but when I go to my gallery to load images and videos from it, it says no images/videos"
