Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone a bit underated. Nice phone, no need for the expensive bill for a Apple, Google, or Samsung phone when Alcatel has a great phone, cool features and am surprised for the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works Great. When it works. The store was out of the phone I was planning to buy, and I stupidly got this phone to have something immediately rather than buy the phone I wanted online. I've had this phone for 3 weeks, and am ready to get rid of it. I am not a heavy user. I text and call a few times a day and have a tiny number of trusted apps. I don't need the newest iPhone. But I do need a phone that actually works. When this phone is up, it is fast, easy to use, takes decent photos, etc. But it reboots often, sometimes taking a long time - like several hours! I have put on Norton, clear the cache several times a day, disabled the bloatware, and use Norton clean sweep, to no avail. The last straw was last night when my daughter called me with a medical issue. The phone rebooted in the middle of the call! Luckily I was near a land line I could use. Am so frustrated, I may move my plan to my old dumb phone before getting another Alcatel. The phone is physically sturdy, which is part of what got me to buy it. If you can get it to work, it would be a good choice for a kid or others who are rough on things. Cricket staff, both in person and via online chat have been pleasant and able to solve the problem temporarily, but it always comes back and no one can figure out why. I don't have the time to deal with daily problems with this phone! I won't even say you get what you pay for because I have had even cheaper phones than this one that don't have these problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Bought brand-new from store. Likes to turn on the wifi randomly and not show that the wifi is on and active. Phonecalls do not come through from others calling me, it'll send them straight to VM . In order to turn off wifi you have to reset the stupid thing. The battery life is great in general.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this phone has everything I have been looking for I've been looking for a new phone and this one seems to have it all! Not having it yet makes a review a guess, but if it's as good as it seems to be it will get a new 5- star rating as soon as I get it activated!
