My bluetooth is always open due to boomband usage and the battery lasts for 2 days. System upgrade is already available that will fix the bugs.Fyi
The PopD5's Quad Core processor is diminished by its 512MB RAM. Though it runs the Mali 400 MP2 GPU, constant lag and buffers will prevent you from enjoying most apps that you would like to run. Multi tasking is a dream that didn't come true for this phone. Also it lacks a self refresh function once your network reaches bottom, meaning when you lose signal once, you won't have a connection anywhere you go. You have to manual refresh either by activating then deactivating Airplane Mode or Restarting your phone outright. The Boom Band is a lure for those bargain hunters who is out for freebies. Battery life for the POPD5 will not support the constant drain of the bluetooth device needed by the Boom Band.

DEX, 29 Oct 2014alcatel pop d5 or myphone RIO what is the best?Well the alcatel and my phone have same specs but if you want a 4.5 screen choose alcatel if you want a 5.0 screen choose my phone. They only have one difference the size.....
I saw that there is a system update (Over the Air, OTA) for my Pop D5 (Sun Cellular) but I haven't tried yet. Has anyone tried so far? What are the difference?
System update is already available. Just updated my alcatel pop d5. Initial changes observed is the operation becomes smoother and the touch screen improves. Still observing other changes. But initially, i can feel some good improvements. New firmware version is 4.4.2 - 01001
at first, im confused if I will get this phone at plan 398 from smart. But believe me this is a nice phone considering that its free. yesterday 10-22-2014 my mother renewed her plan but alcatel pop d5 is now out of stock. Youre lucky if you will get this for free in your plan.

If it wont still work after upgrading, go back to sun cellular, its still under warranty. Ask for replacement. Hope it helps.
Phones specs are good, and actual use can confirm this. I got the set from Sun loyalty. I thougth the Boomband was cool, but started giving problems after a week. Its my 3rd week now, and the boomband can't pair up with the phone. Tried a few times to log out and in again, but doesn't work. It can make one so angry since you spent hard earned money for it.
