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.

So you really don't need any third party apps.

I'll be getting a Fierce 4 myself next month, I hope it's not as bad as some people here make it out to be, but, if anything..it has to be better than my TRU.
I have had this phone for about 4 days and honestly I don't like the fact that it hangs up on people and it only plays music for like 5 minutes after the screen turns off. Is there any way I can fix this?
I got this phone as part of a promotion and I must say that I totally HATE it.
The caller's cannot hear me, and when I power it down for the night, it turns back on. Don't get any of the Alcatel phones. This is my second one and they are all no good.

Yes, it makes a big difference. I can do a full charge from 5% in just under 3hrs...phone on, data.on , wifi.on, gps off. If I use a thinner USB cable that came with Bluetooth speaker, it willl take 10-12hrs.
A minor step up from the Alcatel Fierce XL especially in the casing. Volume isn't as loud as I had hoped but still suffices. Very user friendly and has brighter colors then the XL. It does take a while to charge but the battery life can last all day assuming you aren't constantly on it. I personally do not despise the launcher but I preferred one that I found from Microsoft because it had more customizable options. The camera is good even for someone who takes pictures professionally. You can honestly get some magnificent looking pictures if you try.

I have used it for a few years and love it. My daughter and boyfriend both use it now as well and it saves a lot of phone memory and is easy to use. It also allows you to clean all the cache on your phone at once.
I hate this phone. Ever since I got it I have not been able to use the ear phone jack, the speakerphone doesn't work, when people call me they can't hear me, when I use my talk-to-text it turns my words around, my keyboard hardly ever works and my screen is unresponsive most of the time. The biggest of all is it shuts itself off and won't turn back on for a couple of hours. I hate this phone it is the worst phone I've had altogether. Alcatel is junk don't buy it!
