chewwy, 13 Mar 2015Can anyone tell me how do I down load pictures and video to my computer from the Alcatel phone... moreI use a wifi transfer app, but you can also plug a data transfer cable from phone to computer usb port, then find your phone in file explorer.
It's a good deal at MetroPCS's $30 price point but my Alcatel One Touch Fierce 2 is glitchy. When I'm on a call I can see the screen illuminating out the corner of my eye and often it mysteriously opens the Date and Time setting, sometimes changing the the time zone, or switching to 24-hour time. At other times it has mysteriously opened my anti-virus app. I could live with those oddities but the one glitch I cannot suffer is the inability of the phone to reliably run Google Maps. When I need my GPS navigation the app tells me, "GPS signal lost". After staring me uselessly in the face, the little blue position arrow on the map unmoving, it may, after several minutes decide to work; usually not. I've reset the phone to factory settings but still have the same issue. Apart from those glitches the phone is a spectacular deal. Still, I see a ZTE ZMAX in my immediate future to replace this three month old phone.
I bought my Alcatel One touch fierce August-ish in 2013 from T-mobile. It has not given me any problems. I currently have the following apps: all recipes,fb, google calendar, pandora, news, messenger, photo collage maker, duolingo, and two other school related apps. The battery life lasts me about 8 to 10 hours if I charge my phone over night. I seriously recommend getting a case for this phone. I have dropped mine quite a few times (and a few "f" bombs as well) and only has minor scratches on the screen. All in all the phone is nice, sleek, good battery life, loud speaker, front camera definitely needs to be better. I would not recommend this phone for a person that is constantly on their phone's apps (like a teenager). I would however recommend it for a person that uses it a few times during the day like a wife, student, mother (like myself) etc.
Can anyone tell me how do I down load pictures and video to my computer from the Alcatel phone? And if the battery is not to be removed why did the T-Mobile salesman remove mine. It actually made the battery last longer from each charge, go figure.

Heat is bad on electronicsand I am in Arizona so it doesn't get cold here so he is hard to control to begin with
I had all these same problems with my Fierce 2. All you have to do is go to your apps and select "system updates" to update your phone.

So just got this phone like a month ago and and it randomly goes black screen and I can't unlock it I don't know if there's a bug or something I mean I have a few apps downloaded but nothing out of the ordinary can anyone answer me on why it does that?
I have had he alcatel one touch fierce for like maybe 2 months and i have done nothing to hurt or damage the phone and my bach arrow and my home button on the front wont work anymore. if i m in my texting mode and i have to restart my phone just to switch to where i can call, i want and need to figure out who to call to get a new phone. i think its ridiculous what i'm going through . i have no warrenty but i think i deserve a new phone
I just wanna ask if how can I use 3g/H+ network on alcatel ot fierce? Pls help me. I'm at Philippines. I unlocked it but the network mode is 2g only. Thank you.
I was in love wit the phone until my picture s stop saving .... And my camera and pics are everything to me so I'm very pissed right now then only had this phone for 2 weeks wit a 32 GB SD card
Amazing how some comment how great this phone is an the arrogant attitude they bring with it. The complaints people are making are things you shouldn't have problems with regardless of cost of phone. No, its not a $300 phone an you can't expect it to perform like one. I don't think anyone is expecting that. But you should expect it to perform decently even when it's cold outside....Thanks to the honest post I won't be buying this phone.
My service is with Brightspot. Switched from T-Mobile, but wouldn't have if I had known the trick about cutting SIM card to fit. I could have kept my prepaid plan that is no longer available to new customers. Purchased phone for $49.99 on sale and regular retail was $129, so thought I was getting a deal. This is my first Smartphone and I had an Alcatel Sparq II phone that I was perfectly happy with. I did not buy it for internet necessarily and not phone capability because I use a digital camera for photos. I did expect the phone to work properly. From the start, when the phone would ring the screen was black and could not swipe the screen to answer the call. That finally started working right, but will still do it occasionally and have to restart for it to work right again. Screen is not responsive to tapping and have to repeatedly tap, but does seem to work good when texting ?? Volume is not loud enough and I have no hearing problems. I use my boyfriend's Galaxy 4 and his volume is great. Battery standby is stated to be 14 days, but mine won't even last a few days and I usually just charge overnight daily now. In fact, once it drained to 1% for some reason and I had nothing running. Now, twice I have received calls - one came in as unknown and the other with a number I didn't recognize, so didn't answer either. Then afterwards, the one with a number was showing up as my son and the unknown was showing up as my boyfriend's son. What the ? Wondering what's next with this thing.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2015Personally I love it. I can't believe the price its selln for with the the appearance and over... moreLg L90 is actually better specifications wise and feature wise. And speed wise the Kyocera Hydro Life you forgot the name of is better than both.
this phone suck i had it for two days and the screen froze. do not waste your money.
