MrGadgets, 08 Nov 2014Since this phone was released in New Zealand i got one thinking it was great nice tech inside ... moreFirst if you have some problem with c7 or any other product , you have to go to service ,you have 1 or 2 year warranty. but if you make pirate operation by os with flashing or rooting your warranty is off and now starts problems. but if you dont know how to handle with problems there is manual , in apps ALCATEL help . Here how to fix USB connecting problem , you make a change touching wrong button. Ok connect usb with phone and pc and you pull down on screen and you see menu for usb connecting (only charge ,storage ,etc.).then change to usb storage then you can connect with pc. For other problems i think installing a lot of apps or games ,could make change to os so i recommended uninstall all and release internal and ram memory. or reset to factory then you have new phone. again dont root or flashing c7 it come with 4.2.2 os and could be upgraded only with alcatel mobile upgrade s 4.2.3. this is end from alcatel there is no 4.4.kitkat upgrading. My c7 7041x is 5 month old and i'm happy with no problem at all.
Since this phone was released in New Zealand i got one thinking it was great nice tech inside great screen all round a great device for the price .. having said that over the last 3 months ive been thru 4 (yes 4) thats less than 1 a month so many different faults on one device everytime i took it back my new one had a different fault first was usb didnt work and could only be charged offline which was a huge hassle and when i needed it i couldnt connect it to my pc to access my wifi .. cuase usb didnt work properly .. oh well i took it back the next fault was the back and home keys werent working you had to find the sweet spot and try for a very long time to just hit that spot sometimes it was just easier to turn the phone off and back on to get to the home screen next one wouldnt charge while it was off . and the screen would every now and then artifact ... i then asked for a refund and wasnt going to get another alcatel ended up geting a new htc smaller cpu and that but really no hassles .. in short c7 pop is a great machine just rushed i think and the internals need alot of work wouldnt recomend them to anyone rather would point them in another direction.
Ann, 05 Nov 2014I just bought alcatel pop c7 and i notice in my first time use the battery empty so fast i was... moreFor first time using phone battery is 40-50% and with your new toy you discover everything inside ,it took a long time and battery very soon is discharge. This is a mini pc with large display 5'' so if you need to save battery set display brightness to low. also when you charge battery for the first time let it charge 8h. So batt discharge is for how long you stay on use,for me is good for 2days but it could discharge for 1 day or less ,with play games who use a lot of energy. save energy save the world, wish you best with c7 and its wery good choise for his price.

josh, 04 Nov 2014@ pane....i bought the pop c7 7040e since no other available in pop c7 in our country. i would... morestandard procedure to access wi-fi , first see your router is in work ,tray with other ,(PC) is in use ,if this is ok then ,open menu find wi-fi icon open and find your router name click ,connect with password. Do ask If you need help for mobile 3g . For battery losing percent by listen music or go to internet etc, it's normal how long you use phone battery go down. Battery its same for 2 and is 1900mah and is good to stay for long time ,also you have saving mode and ultimate saver (only phone and contacts ). Normal use good for 2 days. For fake class of alcatel product i personaly don't belive. there is samsung or iphone on target. So i think your c7 is ok only i recomended 7041x it come with 1gb of ram but camera is 5 mpx and single sim. For c7 7040e; it come with 8mpx camera and dual sim but 512mb of ram. I think only ram 512mb could be problem for this phone but i never had this phone in my hand. I wish you best with c7, also i belive is good.
@ pane....i bought the pop c7 7040e since no other available in pop c7 in our country. i would like to ask if there is a fake or class A of this unit because i found out that the battery will be reduce in every one percent while you use the phone either browsing listening music or watching video and another i cant access the wifi. pls help me
