    They had it at my T-Mobile store was pretty much locked down I couldn't use it to take a picture with the rear camera. The front camera looks pretty good with the picture. I snapped on it, real quick. It's definitely thinner than my 640, I might think on picking it up. It was a little slow to unlock the screen waiting for things to load up initially a little bit, but after that it loaded things fine. it's a pretty good device for the price I may end up buying it.

    Are any of them corporate stores?
    None of them are corporate stores.

    Just got back with the phone.
    I haven't opened the box yet.

    The store had it on display next to the BB Priv with an iPhone 6 next to it.

    The phone was on fully functional and all it was just strapped in I couldn't look at the back of it or shoot a picture with the rear camera because it was strapped in. Nice phone tho thin and light

    Wow, I am shocked, but this is progress! I was just in a T-mo store 2 months ago and the 435 was the only phone with the screen off. The other prepaid phones were on at least.

    I got mine a few days ago and honestly what really sold me, other than the fact I've been using my 925 for almost 3 years while waiting for an option that was a legitimate upgrade, was that the associates weren't talking down about it. I don't know if it's because T-mobile's done coaching about not talking bad about a phone you're getting commission selling, or out of genuine interest, but I talked to a few people and all of them seemed to think the phone itself was a good option. For the last couple years any time I go into a t-mobile store asking about windows phones I always get told how I should just switch to Iphone or android, but I really like it so far, and aside from a few minor issues, that are really just me being picky, I think its actually a really nice phone. I've been a loyal Nokia user since 2002, so that takes a lot for me to say.

    Yeah, got one Friday at T-Mobile. This is my first non Lumia windows phone since 2012. Another loyal Nokia fan since 2000. Anyway this Alcatel is very nice for the price. I'm quite happy with the performance so far.

    This is a nice backup to the L950 I acquired. Runs better than the L550 this replaced. So far no frozen screens or jittery performance, much smoother experience than the 550.

    Let's hope more OEM'S jump on board windows 10 for the long haul.

    Battery is good. I need to spend less time playing with the phone to be fair . It is taking whatever I throw at it.

    Day 4 with my Fierce. Battery is great so far.
    Im up at 6am and in bed around 11pm- no need for a mid day recharge. I would also point out that i consider myself a below-average user. I don't use a ton of apps, I'm not playing games or watching movies. Mostly use my phone for email, txting, and (2) BT connections; Band2 & headset.

    Consider the 640? Around $60 right now :) The 925 was/is a midranger so the 640 might suit you better. Not trying to boycott Alcatel here, but just saying
    I was originally looking at a 950 XL, but the lack of WiFi calling was a deal breaker for me. Went with the Alcatel to see if I can live with the size. My girlfriend has a 640 and she loves it though.
