    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    The phone works great. The speaker phone is easy to hear, but others say they can't hear me sometimes, "You sound like you're in a tunnel." Android is stable. I haven't had but one crash and I believe that was to do with a faulty App. The camera takes good pictures. I like to get action shots and like using the burst mode. It will take 10 shots quickly. It's a bit slower in processing those shots than the G3 but like I said, "middle of the road." It costs $120 less than the G3 and considerably less than an iPhone or the latest G5. The battery holds up through the whole day if I keep the auto sync function off. But I don't run Facebook, Twitter or any other social app. I check my email when I want rather than having it pestering me all day. Voice to text recognition is very good. Though I found a clip on leather holder for the phone I've not been able to find a protective skin yet. All in all, I like this phone and if you have limited funds I recommend it.

    I was given this phone as a replacement after my previous one (Motorola Moto G 4G LTE) was stolen. After comparing the specs for the two, the Alcatel Onetouch Sonic LTE doesn't come close. However, this Straight Talk exclusive is would have to be a smart choice for anybody who wants one of the best phones available through ST that's NOT a Samsung or an Apple device. NOTE: The front camera is VGA, thus don't expect to take any good "selfies" with it. The internal memory is a minimal 1GB, so you WILL need to purchase a microSD card along with a case (which normally goes for under $10). Unlike the microSD card, you can only purchase a case from either Amazon or eBay. I recommend buying from Amazon through seller "Cover-U USA Seller." They provide fast shipping and offers the same cases as other sellers. Also, this phone is bigger than most, however it's nowhere near as big as a Samsung Galaxy. Overall, I'd recommend this phone for anyone who wants a great phone with a cheap price.

    I go hugely on reviews, so in looking at all the phones associated with straight talk, so i looked at each phone carefully and most have been out for sale for quite some time so there is reviews on other sites, however not this one yet, also i have been looking at phones and reviews about a year or so Ok, i wanted a 4G capable LARGE screen mainly, i don't really use a ton of apps so Facebook is my main one, it's SUPER fast, the screen is very easy to see ( as i wear distance contacts) and it's also very easy to navigate from screen to screen and app to app, i haven't tried everything yet, the voice text is great, i usually use finger text some swype, but it's a pain, internal memory is supposed to be 4 gigs but it has like 1.75 left after they add all their factory type apps, i'll delete some later, i had a Samsung Huawei ascend prior to this, but dropped it and screen shattered, so i bought this one and so far it's a GREAT phone.

    Can't download apps to the SD card

    I have had this phone for a year. I have only two apps on the phone, Instagram and Pandora, because the phone storage has run out of space. I bought an SD card and was able to move all of my photos to the SD card through File Manager, but when I go to the Google Play Store and try to install a new app, there is no option to put the app on the SD card. So consequently I have run out of memory for my phone storage. Google keeps wanting to update the default apps on the phone but when I try to update I get an error message of "insufficient storage." I spent an hour on the phone with straighttalk tech support to be told, well, you have to remove apps if you want to download another app. Really?? I have only TWO apps on my phone that I personally loaded and I knew that already. And I just tried to call Alcatel one touch support and it's 4:00 pm EDT but they are closed and cannot take a message: 855-368-0829. Therefore, if you like to have apps on your phone, and who doesn't??, don't buy this phone!

    Good morning, KKGerman. You may need to download a files application manager. By example, you can download DU Speed Booster app which already includes this feature. Please visit Google Play and download the free application for you to move the apps to the SD card.

    I was wanting an S3 after shattering the screen on my Optimus Showtime but my local Wal-Mart didnt have any in stock and had just received a shipment of these in. After reading what reviews I could find, I decided to give it a try. I was a bit reluctant as these use AT&T towers and all my other ST phones used Verizon. Ive gotten in some low signal bar areas but have yet to go anyplace that I didnt have service. The 4G is pretty impressive. Nice 4.6" screen too. I just wish the front camera took better pics and wish you could customize the settings a bit more but for $179 its well worth the price and I think I'm going to hang onto it for awhile and forget about the S3 for now

    • A. Code at left hand bottom of box states LTE-A.. SEE http://www.pcmag.com/encyclopedia/term/58327/lte for a better understanding. I have one of these phones and it's AT&T and works extremely well. From my understanding AT&T and T-Mobile but this particular phone AT&T.

    • A. Rob, this phone does use AT&T but the code in the bottom left corner of the box will reflect it being a LTE capable phone. Therefore, it will not have the "GSM" code but rather will be "LTE-A" which denotes that the phone is LTE capable on the AT&T network. Here is a photo of the front of the box from the Turk Forums (copy-and-paste): http://i1062.photobucket.com/albums/t486/TurkForums/07e5bdc4-f757-4c3c-a7d2-fefef8fb5b94_zpsac72034a.jpg .
