I switched to this Alcatel from an Alcatel Smartphone. I much prefer the simplicity of a flip phone so after a two year hiatus I have returned to one. I was worried after buying it online that it was going to be too large. I am thrilled to report it is even smaller than the last flip phone I owned. You can see for yourself how much smaller it is than the smartphone from the picture I attached. It was simple to move my phone number to the new phone and the port was complete within 15 minutes. The call quality is better than my previous phone and sounds as good as a landline. I was surprised to see it has wifi. I don't need it and will never use it but I guess it is good to have onboard. Also, the speaker phone is loud and clear. That is a big plus because I still wonder about the health risks of having this thing against my ear. Anyhow, I love this phone and I am betting you will love it too.
I've been using flip phones through tracfone for over a decade and never had any complaints with my old Motorola and LG phones but this phone is the absolute worst. I'd see missed calls three hours later because it didn't ring, it would change settings on its own, it was very hard to navigate the menue and find anything, very unintuitive and not user friendly at all. I finally got so mad at its unusability when it would not type anything in a text box that I took out all my aggressions on it and punched it until the screen went blank. Now I have an even more useless phone, but not by much. So done with alcatel. Now to find an old LG flip on ebay. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR YOUR SANITY ON THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE!!
I want to light this phone on fire. It's a piece of garbage. I'll have people calling me all day and I won't get any missed calls notifications. When I do get a call, I'm lucky if it tells me which of my contacts is calling. When I pick up, it will drop the call. When I try to call back, the phone will freeze until I restart it. This is the second phone I've gotten from Alcatel because the first one failed me, too. I will never buy from this company again.
MY old LG never had a problem, which I had for years. This Alcatel is nothing but trouble . Caller ID will not work right it gives the number of caller but not the name always says unknown and yes they are listed in my contacts. Have called 2 0r 3 times about this and always given a different excuse and kept on the line forever so don' tell me to call !! Will be looking for a different phone and provider. My husband has same phone and the same problem know of another person having same problem so don't give oh it looks good on our end , seems it is in your sorry phones !
