Well I had the Alcatel One Touch fierce XL which I loved and the only reason I went with the fierce 4 is because it had a higher operating system than the 5 1.1. But I love this Fierce 4 because it do everything I need it to with no problems. I don't understand all the issues you all are having because mine is working perfect. I run my laptop, my wireless Hp printer and transfer files back and forward to Cloud location. The battery life is great and talk time is magnificent. Oh and by the way don't forget to update your phone to the 6.0.1 version.

The volume is a bit lower than most phones but overall it's not a bad phone for the price, you just have to learn it because Alcatel is a different brand not on the top, but far from the bottom
Overall the phone works but the features aren't at all good compared to more quality phone. Priced way too high. Much rather have purchased a refurbished iphone.
Setting a wallpaper on the home screen is annoying because when I crop it, it moves the image over and when I set a lock screen wallpaper it smooshes the image.

I agree with these posts. You are not lying. I could not even give the phone away.
This is the WORST phone I've ever had! I've had this phone a few weeks and its driving me crazy. I even tried to take it back the next day and the incompetent lying staff at Metro PCs made me keep it. First off, I can't turn my phone completely off...only vibrate. Its hard to cut on, I like a button on the front versus the side. And you must press it pretty hard for it to work. The camera gets this foggy/fuzzy look to it. I googled it and see I'm not the only one with the camera problem either. I will also call someone and they can't hear me. But after that happens I can normally call right back and it will work. Of course, the volume is off as others has mentioned as well. Just don't use the phone in loud areas??? I really should have kept my Samsung! Don't waste your money on this phone.
This is my second fierce 4 the phone is crap incoming calls don't ring half the time text messaging does notify you every time.Have to keep the phone next to me so I can see when the screen lights up and phone answers itself.
I hear you guys about volumn especially with headsets however default value with headsets is about 75%. You can increase that simply by increasing the volumn and approving the high volumn warning. So far it's outstanding other than not being able to save to sd unless you slave the sd storage to the phone.
Kurvy Kimmie, 27 Feb 2017Hi does anyone know if this a LG Phone?Alcatel is it's own Brand so therefore it is not an LG
I love the phone. I don't have too many problems with my phone. The volume is low and the camera is OK.
Can someone tell me how to lock my messages?
I've been with alcatel for more than 2 years. Before this phone, I had the Alcatel One touch fierce 2. I have nothing but beautiful memories with that phone. It was great all around and did things great for a budget 40 dollar phone. After its breaking, I bought this Fierce 4 thinking it would only be better. I was unfortunately very mistaken as far as SPEAKER and EARPHONE VOLUME goes. It's so low. Very very dissapointing. But other than that. The phone has a very nice interface, especially with Nova Launcher installed. Gives you a real Stock Android feel.
