I got mine in metro PCs it works great I love it I've had for about 4mnths yeah its slow but its totally worth it in the end I love my phone better than nothing honestly I have no problems with it just that sometimes its kind of slow but in reality it works great
#awsome thank u metro PCs
This phone is complete garbage. My carrier is Family Mobile and the service only works well in major cities. The network often toggles to 2G or no signal at all. The camera, lack of internal storage, and terrible graphics ruin the phone's reputation. This company should be ashamed of the lack of effort they put into making this stupid piece of shit. But they did get one thing right: I am fierce after one touch on this stupid phone. Please go buy yourself a Samsung galaxy iphone or even an lg smartphone but STAY AWAY FROM ALCATEL!!!
Lucy, 20 Jun 2014How do I delete a name from contactI need to know this too. And I can't figure out how to replace a changed contact number, just how to add another and keep the old too...
I have had this phone for 3 months, and just got a replacement. My original phone ran out of room for photos relatively quickly, but nothing that a memory card cannot fix. The camera sucks but I expected that from a cheaper phone. It isn't that much slower than a higher end phone, and the battery on mine is pretty good, so I was pleasantly surprised. BUT that is where the good things END.
The things wrong with it that aren't actually broken, that are just crappy in general? It has the worst keyboard known to man. I have tiny fingers and it types in the wrong letters. It finishes my words, adds words, sometimes adds a few words, based off of my typing one letter. Not like those funny autocorrect mistakes- like every other letter I type, it finishes the word for me with something really random. My last phone liked inserting the name "Brett" into every sentence. I don't even know a Brett. The keyboard has a random button that if you hit it, it highlights the last word you typed and then if you hit another button, it replaces the word. Of course it is in the spot where most phones have the button to switch from letters to numbers, so you hit that button ALL THE TIME and erase everything. (I just figured out how to replace that keyboard with a different, and slightly less crappy keyboard. But other than the rogue replacement button, everything else still sucks.) It drops calls like none other. My mom has the same phone and her battery drains in like 2 hours. She has practically nothing on her phone either.
The things that actually were BROKEN after only 3 months: the touch pad didn't work properly. The phone would freeze and I could not turn it off or restart it for long periods of time. Sometimes it wouldn't let me make a call to a local number because "long distance calling is disabled" when it totally isn't... It dropped calls after 30 seconds, over and over.
Now I just got it replaced three days ago, and the new phone is inserting entire phrases into my texts. The touch screen still doesn't work. It will not work at all and everything will freeze up, then it will click and open random internet pages.
SO FED UP WITH THIS PHONE. I seriously got it to save money and expected it to not be very fast or have a great camera, but I expected it to work properly.
happy, 02 Jul 2014This is my third phone in two months, actually ive had this one a month , the other two didn't... moreI agree! I've had 3 of these phones since March and I don't know why I wasted my money on this phone! Mine all went black too!
I have had 3 of these phones because the screen went black on all of them & now I'm having trouble with my 3rd phone! If I have to get another phone I will NOT be getting this phone again!
Link is for those tinkerers out there.

I've had my one touch almost 6 months on metro PCs and haven't had many problems so far with the exception of being a little slow at times. Good phone at a great price.
Dell bklyn , 05 Jul 2014I had the alcatel fierce for exactly one month.. I can honestly say this is absolutely the wor... moreI totally agree with you. I had mine for a week and it doesn't work the way the manual says it does, smart phone? I say NOT. I couldn't even put and pictures to my contact list, it kept saying that I didn't have any contacts, I am taking this piece of crap back, I am so disappointed.
SERIOUSLY guys? What is going on with these comments? GSMA needs to police them better. I smell mechanical turks all over these 'opinions'... That said,
The value on offer with this phone is crazy. You got a great looking screen, decent gaming, 4g, micro SD, and an FM Radio for crying out loud. Nothing is left out. Also, I've used it for 3 months and haven't had one hitch that wasn't something I did wrong. It didn't fail, corrupt or refuse to turn on once. AND I found it for $99. What the heck else do you want?
The Fierce isn't perfect. Two things stand out to me. 1. Janky touch recognition. For some reason the OTF wants a lighter hand than I am used to. Strange. And 2. I've had a little trouble getting the bluetooth to a loudness where it's comfortable for me to make calls with. Sorta quiet. Could be my headset anyway.
Basically it's a $600 phone from 2 years ago for one sixth the price. Does your neurotic mind require that your phone-wang is the longest? Than this is not the one for you. Are you a reasonable human being that hates wasting money? Than yes, the One Touch Fierce is an amazing value.
HuskyPunk, 30 May 2014This is a really nice phone for the price! I bought this phone a few months back and have had ... moreI just got this phone. Had a blackberry Z10 which was absolutely the worst phone I've owned. The only problem I've had is connecting to the wifi. Says it avoided a bad internet connection. I have Comcast so I know that's bs. Anyone that's solved this please let me know. I'm searching post about this to see if anyone has solved it
What the hell is a DATE CODE? I am trying to get my One Touch Fierce repaired and in the Phone Information it is asking for a DATE CODE, is there anyone that knows what that is?
Just found out there made in China, enough said if it's made by an ex-faker :(
Alcatel user, 15 Jun 2014The frontside camera is too dark. The back camera darkens out when recording even if there is ... moreFor some reason every time I try to use the camera the screen is just black then it says cannot connect to camera?? How do I fix this
Save your money buy LG L90! You won't be sorry the alcatel fierce is a rip off even at the seemingly cheap price it's not worth it.. You'll be buying a stock android with glitches this phone was problems day one and that's a shame I thought I had a defective phone till I heard all the horror stories! And I thought my LG F3 was bad! It was top of the line compared to this phone I regret complaining about it at the time...
I had the alcatel fierce for exactly one month.. I can honestly say this is absolutely the worst a android phone I have ever had I bought the phone as a replacement for my lg f3 which I lost I thought since they were the same price I was get a better or at least similar experience since t-mobile no longer carried the f3...I very disappointed with the almost stock android operating system the phone kept coming on while I talked and my face kept hitting the end button.. It kept calling people for no reason every time I tried to end the calls the screen would black out it worked like 2g on WiFi and it was very glitchy I waited exactly one day before my return option ran out I got an extra $50 bucks and purchased the lg l90 which had just dropped from $229 to $179 and I have to say I made a great choice this phone is day and fierce is night this is the best phone in that price range save up a little extra and buy that phone it's like a high end phone at a cheap phone's price I love it especially since the operating system is Tight no glitches great features and it's blazing fast!! BE WARNED STAY FAR AWAY FROM ALCATEL ONE TOUCH FIERCE AND THE EVOLVE!! SAVE YOUR SELF THE trouble!! It looks and feels nice but it's not....
Using this phone at the moment and I hate it. I first had this phone under T-Mobile and had no reception what so ever. So I switched to at&t and still have barely any reception.
Lady J, 29 Jun 2014There are no words to describe how crappy this phone is.
