Common Questions


Alcatel released the GO FLIP on March 13, 2017.


The GO FLIP price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Alcatel GO FLIP prices from around the web here on The Informr.


We've got you covered! Download a free PDF copy of the Alcatel GO FLIP user manual here.


Alcatel backs up the GO FLIP with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your GO FLIP has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Alcatel support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Alcatel's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop.

Carmen

No Manual Provided

I like the lightweight of the phone and the large keys but honestly don't find it to be user friendly.


Did not receive a manual only a quick guide to start.  No instructions on how to set up voice mail,  number used in messaging, etc.


Not too happy with product.  Purchased will deal with it for now.
