Extremely fast charge and holds charge for a long time. Excellent speaker phone. Good max volume and easily controlled. Great alarm features. Ultra ba

No Bluetooth or camera. Excellent clarity for voice calls, including excellent speakerphone, but very frustrating 4 function ring switch.

Free upgrade from Tracfone. Difficult to use to access different functions. You need VERY small fingers otherwise you push two buttons at same time. NO user manual included. Keys automatically lock if no input in 20 seconds. Contact list hard to read in dim light. Redial difficult (20 second lock). I had to figure out how to send a text through trial and error because of no user manual. I would own if I hadn't gotten free from Tracfone. Less

Almost nobody has a user manual available, but Alcatel does. Look here http://www.alcatelonetouch.us/product-support and download one of the A392 series.

What a piece of junk!!!

Had to get this from tracfone when they upgraded to a 3G system that my 2G Motorola V170 phone couldn't use. NO user manual and completely not user friendly. Tracfone said they would replace with a similar phone B.S. This one is junk not intuitive at all. I will transfer to another and throw it in the trash

I love this little phone.

It's easy to use, holds its battery length well and I think a perfect phone for a senior like me who does not use a cell phone very often.

Affordable, low-cost option.

Perfect if you just need to call people. Ideal for seniors. I wish however it was easily able to be unlocked to other carriers. And I wish there was a setting to set manual time.

If you look further down this page, you will see offers for unblocked versions at amazon. With shipping the total price is about $15.
