I hate this phone! Trouble from day 1. Crashes constantly. UI crashes daily. Freezes up if trying to watch a video. I get the black screen of death on a frequent basis. Can't wait to dump this pos and get an iPhone. Won't be buying it from T-Mobile!
>There are several issues, the largest BY FAR is the fact that its connection never stays. We have 2 in the house, mine I can reset the connection 90% of the time by putting it in airplane then back out, but for my wife she has to reboot the phone 90% of the time for connection to be re-established. That is on 4G and multiple Wi-fi networks. Not to mention her Bluetooth stopped working quite some time ago.
>The only good thing about this phone (the reason we bought it) was for its internal space which was far better than the cheepie 8gb we had before. But we have been debating if it is worth it or not.
>The screen size is nice.
>The speed is good for its price.

I have had like a million phones in my lifetime. I've also had at least three T-Mobile revvl phones. This is the worst phone I've ever had. I feel like they we're working on it but couldn't figure it out and then just gave up and just sold it. There are so many glitches, it freezes up all the time, and it definitely will not send picture messages. Which is what I paid for. do not get this phone unless you want to hate your life. I mean seriously, it's a piece of f****** s***. If you get this phone, you are signing the certificate for your own misery
I do like my TMobile service and the reps have been wonderful. But this phone sucks. I can't enjoy my apps because as soon as I leave the home screen it freezes. I wouldn't recommend this phone

It freezes everytime I leave the home screen
Crappy phone in general. I like the large display area but agree that it is glitchy performance at best. Phone turns off for no reason. Calls my voicemail by itself while I am already on another call and plays messagesthat both I and other party can hear. Camera start up is so slow I miss photo ops regularly. In my own home it is the only device that loses my wifi signal on an almost hourly basis.

The WORST phone I've ever owned. I've had it under a month and the problems grow on a daily basis. I have tried everythibg to get it to work properly.
I thought I had done my research before getting the phone - next time I'll read the reviews from people who use the phone daily (not just tech sites that that try it out to give it a review). The phone is so bad that I'm using an old phone to write this!
Where do I start with the list of problems (there are so many I know I'll forget some) - the phone just shuts down for no reason - apps constantly crash - phone freezes all the time - occasionally the phone rings but the screen is black (no way to answer a calls) - apps take forever to load (if at all) - the camera is so slow to start up you miss out on the picture you wanted to take or you take the pic, the phone freezes and the pic is lost - settings change in their own... That's a partial list but I'm sure you get the idea. Even if you reboot the phone (which usually solves some problems) it doesn't help.
I'm so disgusted I'm ready to just walk away from T-Mobile and their crappy phones for good!

I wish I had read more reviews from real people (not just tech sites). I've tried everything I've read to try and fix some if the problems and nothing has helped. I'm beyond disgusted with the phone and the way T-Mobile doesn't seem to care!!

The clock will just stop so therefore I have to power it off and restart it. I'm now finding that callers in my contact list comes up a "blocked" and of course upon learning this from my callers I go in to unblock their numbers to find that they're reblocked!! THIS IS THE WORST PHONE THAT I'VE EVER HAD. TOTAL TRASH
Like the phone but performance is horrible got the cell spot it doesn't work good for this phone constantly have to reboot. Any help would be great. My wife has a lg Stylo and it works alot better
I bought two revvl phones two months ago; the regular and the plus. These are the worse cell phones I have ever had. Nothing but issue after issue, from calls going to voice mail right away, to no one can hear me on calls but I can hear them, many other issues, I have spent hours on the phone with technicians who canÂ’t seem to figure out whatÂ’s wrong. The phones are cheap, for a reason. If you donÂ’t mind missing calls, not being able to make a call, or spending hours and hours trying to figure out whatÂ’s wrong with your cell phone then this is the phone for you.
I am a T-Mobile fan but this Revvl Plus leaves a lot to be desired. Issues: can't use phone unless it's on speaker. Constantly crashing. UI crashes. Browser crashes or freezes then crashes. Arbitrarily turns the do not disturb on so you can't get calls until you notice and put it back. Crashes causes phone to reset do your wallpaper disappears etc. This is my second phone in 4 months and I am waiting for the third replacement phone to arrive. I will never ever willingly purchase a crap Alcatel phone again.
I like the phone but GPS doesn't work. Constantly losses signal and often shows my location in wrong place. I got a warranty replacement phone but it has the same problems. I decided to go high end and just ordered a Pixel 2 from Google. I hope it works out well
I bought a Revvl for my daughter. She could not group text and then the screen started to fail. It was under warranty, so I thought "no big deal, get all fixed at one time." When new phone arrives, T Mobile charges me a "Warranty service Fee" of $22. BS! Is there a warranty or not? There should be a zero dollar fee, perhaps GIVE me something for the hassle. Last T Mobile phone and new carrier in near future.
In one word: Sucks!
It worked for 5 months, then one day decided to not let me answer calls anymore. Incoming calls would ring away, while the phone showed me a totally black screen. As I write this, it has been 38 days since the phone died, and I'm still waiting for the warranty replacement after conversing with 22 different T-Mobile contacts, several on multiple occasions. Unacceptable.
i..O.U.F.A, 19 Sep 2017Compared to other $100 phones I've seen, it's rubbish.I have had the REVVL plus for not even a month. Get tons of pop-up ads, in the middle of reading a text, watching a Netflix movie, reading a news article.
Have been to two stores and talked with 10+ people about the pop-up ads, and no one knows how to get rid of them!
Don't want another identical phone, want a brand have heard of; like Samsung, but I am past my 14-day trial period, and am stuck.
I truly feel my phone is defective since no one can help me. Who can I complain to?
