AT&T PREPAID Alcatel idealXCITE 8GB Prepaid Smartphone, Black
MSRP : $39.88

Sale : $19.48
Sold & shipped by Walmart


The AT&T PREPAID Alcatel idealXCITE delivers with its vibrant 5" screen, quad-core processor for fast downloading and streaming and the latest in Android technology.


Only useful for basic texting and phone calls!

You get what you pay for but in this case, you don't even get that. From day one, this thing would get hot and turn off from simply surfing the web (no videos or game play). The one star rating is good for phone call reception or it wouldn't deserve any stars. This shouldn't be classified as a smartphone.


My new mp3 player

For $14.98 for Black Friday prices I can't be upset at its features but there are more cons than pros to this phone. Pros- I currently use this as an mp3 player and its great for extended memory up to 128 GB, it is bluetooth compatible, Battery life is optimal since I don't use it for daily use & thats about it so far. Cons- This does not come with boosted sound or Dolby features so sound quality is horrible unless you download a separate app and equalize it, even though my wifi is connected and strong I can't watch youtube, Every time I open my lock screen these annoying ads open from google play and can potentially hinder battery life, internal memory is actually about 4-5 GB due to al the AT&T bloatware that you can only disable and not all my songs can be identified even if they are all formatted the same, screen quality is 480p


Worst phone EVER

This is honestly probably the worst phone ever please do not get this get this even if it's free, the picture quality is horrible, pictures outside look like they are in black and white, there is barely any space, this was supposed to have more space than my old phone, but when I tried to move over my pictures (even after deleting half of them) I couldn't open anything because "to much space had been taken up" normally you can still open other apps like Instagram if there are to many pictures, not the case with this phone, my friend tried to tell me something important but because I had a few pictures and 4 apps I didn't see it, I tried to play a game (similar to piano tiles but different) and none of it registered, there are so may more bad things I can say but I'm hungry and I need to go find a new phone to replace my new phone, please please please never get this phone.


My first smartphone

I think it's great. Then again I haven't had an iphone. but then again I haven't paid for an iphone either. I found a case on ebay. Although I did get one from Amazon and have to send it back because it does not fit. Try Ebay. You don't have to have a data plan on AT&T to use this phone. I only use WiFi for the internet and the phone signal for texting and whatever. My old flip phone was obsolete and the typing was a real chore. This makes it much easier.


Okay in a pinch

This phone works and is fairly basic. It has fairly limited phone storage and features. I hate when phones come with tons of pre-loaded apps but this got me through while my phone was being repaired and got better signal than a $99 phone I tried.
