    USELESS!!!

    Posted
    CricketCustomer

    First of all, Cricket doesn't offer a hotspot on this phone, so if that is a feature you may need, don't buy this phone. Second, this phone has trouble connecting to wifi and staying connected to wifi. I have the same trouble at every single location I try to connect at, (home, work, residences, public spots, etc.) It takes multiple attempts before I either connect or give up. If I happen to connect, it still kicks me every few minutes. No other devices have the issue at the same locations, so it has to be this device. If it was a $20 dollar phone, I would just replace it, but at over $100 (since I am a returning Cricket customer) I am stuck with it for a while. The battery life is also pretty bad, making the power pak a necessity. However, you can't really use the phone while the power pak is charging it because the battery drains faster than the pak can charge it, so it will die, rendering the pak useless. Also, the sensor is messed up and impossible to reset, so the screen goes black when making phone calls. So not only can you not tell whether the call is connecting, you can't use the keypad or add a call. TERRIBLE PHONE!!! You're better off buying a cheap, disposable since this one doesn't function properly.

    This is the worst phone I have ever owned will not sync to Bluetooth devices correctly will not send picture messages will not connect to internet properly will not download messages I would not recommend this phone I bought this phone at Best Buy for $49 the only Pro to this phone is it came with the power back for $49 which was a good deal. Compared to other Alcatel phones I have owned this one is the worst. Do not buy this phone. I would give zero stars but that is not an option therefore the one star

    So original tried to get to of these added to my kind , Best buy employee did all she could but ultimately cricked want to charge an additional fee to get these under my line. I was fine with that then the cricket rep said he messed up and I'd have to activate both phones full amount and then wait for a refund . Basically it was a run around and I ended I just canceling both of them

    Screen is slightly smaller than my LG but after a while I didn't notice anymore. Crappy crappy service in my basement compared to my last 3 phones but again In My Basement. Lol. Otherwise it's an awesome pay as you go burner phone & I'm quite pleased with the 'newer latest features - my LG almost was 2 yrs, a record for me a notorious phone killer. For less than $100 disposable phone I'd recommended & buy it again

    Affordable alternative that you can customize with 3 different mods. Practically free for $30 with the in store offer. And it comes with 16gb memory, a lot of cheap prepaid phones require an additional sd card because the internal memory can only keep basic apps updated. This phone comes can do a lot for cheap. It does have a awkward feel when ypur holding it and takes times getting used to

    Perfect for upgrading from just a text-only phone.

    I manage empty buildings and also renovate them. My previous phone of about six years was voice/text only, no Internet, and the camera was a mere 1.2 Megs. I have been using the Alcatel PULSEMIX for almost a month now. It's excellent. The Internet connections have been flawless and the picture quality of the images is excellent. The upgrade to this phone is well worth the price.

    Doesn't charge and if you can get a charge on it it lasts maybe 2 hrs. Sound Quality is poor. YouTube videos lock up. A flip phone would be better than this. Save your money. Buy ANYTHING else! First Alcatel phone I've been disappointed with and will be the last one.

    This is a very nice simple smart phone for a teen. Can do all the basic things they need done and comes with a backup battery charger case which is great for anyone who has a teen.

    Has different snap back mods similar to Motorola Moto Mods. But cheaper and not as high quality. Would recommend for kids. Buy a case or risk easy water damage.

    The phone is working very well and I am enjoying it. My only complaint is that the charger is a different size from other Androids.
