  • Is this phone safe?

    The Alcatel U50 was pulled in July 2018 because it failed to meet government-set wireless radio frequency energy exposure limits. Has this been fixed?

  • Koodo Alcatel U50 Review (A cell phone tht was released before it was finished)

    from Windsor, ON on October 25, 2018

    product name: Telus Alcatel U50 purchase date: Mon Oct 22 2018 return date: Thurs Oct 25 2018 - Auto sleep mode when turning on the device - the setting to turn off the beep doesn't function. - less options in websites and applications then a laptop or pc. Example in microsoft word you can't do tables. - Data Saver boosts up the speed of the internet adding to your bill when it's turned on - After the sim card is inserted the setting to turn off the sleep mode doesn't function in preventing the cell to turn it's self on sleep mode during startup. - After the sim card is inserted when typing the pin or at the start of typing the pin the screen automatically freezes for 2 or 3 seconds. I recommend saving money for a plan phone then a prepaid phone. I also has an very old operating system that might be the main cause of it's malfunctions.
