Alcatel Pixi 4 (5 inch) on Virgin £35 from ASDA

62
LocalFound 26th Jul 2016
Bought this for my daughter mainly for Pokemon Go. Its a 5inch, 480p phone with 1GB of RAM, 8GB ROM, Has a micro-sd slot, Runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Quad core 1.3GHz, 2000 mAh battery, 8mp rear, 5mp front cameras.
Can confirm...
PLAYS POKÉMON GO...
***Due to the absence of a gyroscope/gyrometer A.R mode doesn't work... that being said playing with A.R mode off makes it easier to catch pokémon & saves on battery life***

No top-up required.

Paid 99p for an unlock code on eBay.
Now fully unlocked. Bargain.
Couldn't recommend enough!
Amazing spec for £35.

You'll probably have to buy £10 top up with it though, making it £40

It's not great but then again it's only £35. I bought this recently after a bit of looking around and couldnt find anything cheaper on the high street. I'm happy with it as a temporary phone.

For unlocking - Your text here
Can't find one anywhere
bought one today at local Asda, not bad for the money to be honest - screen is actually alright, quite bright.

any cases?



none in the box other than the standard black battery cover. saw some flip ones again on eBay for £3.99 though from China.​
Hi Can someone help with the unlock process please - I have the codes, I've been sent
PID: *****
NCK: **************
SPCK: ************
Which do I use? The phone is asking for SIM ME lock (NP)
I have messaged the seller but asking on here as well as I need a quick reply as son is flying to Germany this afternoon!
Thanks in advance

Edit Also question re the headphones, the ones that came in the box the jack doesn't push all the way into the phone & the music is only coming out of 1 ear bud, do we have a duff phone or duff earphones? I have tried my headphones & they don't push in all the way either, can't test the sound yet as stuck on the sim unlock screen!

Edit 2. All sorted, seller very quick to respond, & headphone jack takes a final push to click in fully!

What did the eBay seller do to help you?

Just advised me that the NCK code was to be input when the phone asks for SIM ME lock (NP), might have been pretty obvious to some but it wasn't to me, might be that they missed the P out when they messaged me the codes! Once that had been input the phone then asks for the SP code, having not unlocked a phone before I wasn't familiar with the process.

Perfect as you don't even need to unlock the phone to use this!

Edit - actually you do need to unlock the phone, but this is a very good value sim only deal.
