The phone has no compass. So when you arrive somewhere you will have no idea what direction to go in until you walk 50 M.
Or you have to stand there and work it out by finding out which way is North, where you just got off, and where the streets are! LIke the 1900s! What a joke!
I recommend you do NOT risk giving this to your child.
Who knows what else is wrong with the phone, since the company is clearly not trustworthy.
WARNING: NO COMPASS ! You will get lost - and Alcatel can get lost !
Don't buy this TRASH!
When you use Maps and arrive somewhere, you'll have NO IDEA which direction to go unless you walk 50 M. INCREDIBLY frustrating!
Phone is also very laggy
What sort of phone company doesn't put something so BASIC as a compass in its phone?
A compass is so BASIC these days that many spec sheets online don't even MENTION it.
It's dishonest not to tell customers.
ALCATEL? Well we know what sort of people they are.
I will never buy Alcatel again: I don't trust them.
It's like selling an automatic car with several gears missing.
I would really love buy in a few months, Would this be a good first phone for a 13 year old girl? If you have this phone can you suggest some good cases for me. Thank you
I've dropped this so hard god knows how many times, and right when I dropped it lightly it cracked. This phone is pretty bad, battery drains fast, speakers very low, small portion of storage even though I have a SD card, camera quality sucks... and it constantly glitches

Friend, What did you expect when you buy this product, with 512mb ram is a pretty small and 4GB internal memory which is divided into 2GB for OS and 2GB for user. so the only solution is to first save your all data; images, mp3, etc and then do factory data reset, when this is over then do not install; facebook, massenger, instagram, snapchat, since this program simply eat the internal memory and run in the background, so that the phone starts to freeze, so using them through the browser. Thus if the phone is working perfectly, I wish you happy moments
I have a lot of problems with this cellphone. I've had it for about 3 months and haven't dropped it since I received it. I've had problems with it before - not enough storage, bad camera quality, screen delays, etc. But now the problem has EVOLVED big time. My music won't play anymore, I can't load any photos on my gallery, the phone claims to not being able to find any files which resulted in me deleting apps as I thought it was a problem with the storage however it isn't. I find myself having to restart my phone around 5-7 times a day just to play a song or browse my gallery. I regret buying this cellphone big time :(

Anonymous, 27 Aug 2016This phones a joke. Can't text properly without having to correct yourself 10+ times. i like the phone thats it, only the look, my desktop apps have changed to tiny apps??? when i come off one app im on 6 other apps after that, "exmp" if i go on fb and have finished im then on my messenger click off that then its my contacts, then who ive rang then google??? my keybord always wants to type all the letters around the actual letter im typing my 'm' delets all the time my space bar is spaced out and only works after pushing a few times and clicking away the change language!?! wt is this???? i cant wait to get a new one, i baught this one cos the size bigger was too big for me and all of my sim contacts were gone!i live in another land so not easy to get them all back if at all, my family and old friends mostly, so to lose all my numbers was devistating. When i heard i cant get them back! what a piece of beep! what would normaly take me 5 mins to type has now taken me 30! what a joke never again! what can i do?
Camera is very poor quality and does not focus well, especially at close range. Phone is laggy even with bare-bones setup. I find it lagging often when using the keypad, switching to certain different keypads helps. Im not a fan, but not sure what better options there are in the 80$ ish price range.
I got the Alcatel pixi 3 ask around April 2016 and it has been so so sometimes it just disconnect by itself , it is difficult to answer but you can't call out alright the clarity is good not the fastest but it's okay dr. Recently what it is doing on its own was its dialing numbers at random out of my contacts at all hours including night time which is annoying the heck out of my friends.
So now here we are September 19 and I have not been able to use the phone since Thursday or Friday the screen would sometimes Flash White... And now I am unable to turn it on, at first I thought it was the charger so I have used a different charger and that does not seem to be the problem I have not called Net10 and they are shipping out a new battery and charger hope this will take care of the problem will keep you posted... without a cell phone and unhappy in Montebello
someone who can help rooting my phone please do it took a long time trying to success without any root, appreciate your help please.
A huge amount of scrolling data has appeared to the right hand side of the screen and, despite trying everything, I cannot get rid of it. Don't know how it suddenly started but it's not moving. Any ideas anyone?

The fault is that the stupid OS actually thinks that the memory card is the internal memory and vice versa so you have to tell it to do the opposite of what you want.
Set the default storage to "Phone Storage" and it will suddenly work. You wouldn't believe it, but it's true. Infuriating!
It's not the worst phone but I am frustrated by the fact that even though I save stuff to my memory card, most apps still take up quiet a lot of phone memory so I can't install very many apps which is annoying
