Powerful and Affordable—the Alcatel Pop 3 LTE

If you’re in the market for an affordable, powerful, and easy-to-use smartphone, we have some great news for you—we’ve added the Alcatel Pop 3 (5.5ʺ) LTE to our lineup. This device packs a lot of the speed and versatility of its more expensive smartphone cousins, and it has several distinctive features all its own.

What you’ll notice right away is the large, high-resolution 5.5-inch screen. This makes it so much easier to read or write email and text messages, or find information on the web. The clarity and size help make navigating touchscreen functions a snap, too.

The Pop 3 LTE runs on the popular Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system. This robust, dependable technology is powered by a 1GHz Quad-Core processor, which provides plenty of speed for web surfing, video chat, or watching videos. The phone comes with 8.0GB of internal memory, plus a micro-SD card, which can support up to 8.0GB more. This will give you plenty of storage for contacts and photos!

The device includes a front facing 5.0 mega-pixel camera with 2x digital zoom, and the large screen comes in really handy here. It’s simple to compose nice pictures and capture what you really want, because you can actually see what you’re aiming at! And the 720×1280 pixel display lets you enjoy the satisfying results.

You’ll be able to enjoy FM radio and hands-free Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, and M4/T3 hearing aid compatibility gives you even greater flexibility when making or receiving calls. The Pop 3 LTE is lightweight for its size at 6.1 oz., and provides up to 30 hours of talk time on a single charge.

You’ll be truly impressed by how much phone you get for the money—the Pop 3 is available now for only $120. If that isn’t enough, we also make it tremendously easy for you to learn all about how to use the features on your phone with our step-by-step “How To” video tutorials. From the most basic to the most complicated task, our videos will have you enjoying your smartphone like an expert in no time. You can even take a tour of the Pop 3 LTE at the end of this blog!

You can buy the Alcatel Pop 3 LTE online, at Target stores nationwide, or by calling us at (888) 345-5509.  We think you’ll love the advantages the big screen offers, and the value of getting so many features for such a low price.

        This phone is different than my last phone which is a Huaweii smartphone. I had to call customer service because the phone was not ringing. After three calls the issue was resolved by a simple setting on my phone, set volume to highest setting, than on screen touch ‘all’. It was set on ‘priority’. When set on ‘priority’ the ring will not sound just goes to ‘dismiss or answer’. I’m sure this will help any new AlcTel pop 3 (5.5″) LTE customers.

    Received mine last week and am very happy with this new Alcatel Pop 3 smartphone. The customer service via Consumer Cellular was, as usual, outstanding–activation was presenting issues–and “all is well” since my call to CC. The phone is somewhat larger than I expected but it is so much easier to text with (big and old fingers!). I wanted an alert light…and have it with this phone. It is a winner (so far…)! I highly recommend this Alcatel Pop smartphone.

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      That’s wonderful, EJ! We’re glad that the Pop 3 is the right fit for your needs. Thank you for sharing your experience here, and we appreciate your recommendation. Enjoy your new phone and have a wonderful day!

  6. Michael Frazier says

    With Moto G Ext, which we actually bought via Consumer Cellular at Target one year ago, where in the Android do we go to find the “background data restrict” setting?

    reply to Michael

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      I’m happy to help you with that, Michael. Start by opening your Settings app, then select “Data usage”. From there, tap the menu (the three squares) in the top right corner. Then be sure to check “Restrict Background Data”, then select “OK” to confirm. That’s it! If you run into any issues, we’re happy to help you over the phone at 888-345-5509. Thank you for reaching out to us, and we hope you have a great day!

      reply to Ashley

      • Michael Frazier says

        Ashley, THANK YOU, we accidentally removed “Restrict Background Data” from my wife’s phone. It has in our opinion allowed us to get a lot better value from our phones, but I was going crazy trying to find where to restore RBD. Yes, Consumer Cellular collects less data usage service charge, but it makes us much, much more satisfied customers!

        reply to Michael

        • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

          We’re glad we could be of help, Michael. Our goal is to have happy customers first and foremost, so we’re glad that you were able to adjust this setting to your satisfaction. Thank you!

  7. Marsha says

    As a brand new smart phone owner — very uninformed — can I go through the tutorial on my new phone without activating it? I am hesitant to deactivate my flip phone until I am confident I can master this one. Thank you.

    reply to Marsha

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Great question, Marsha! You do not need to completely activate your phone if you just want to try it out first.

  8. Harley Eaton says

    I now have my 2nd Alcatel Pop 3 LTE phone with what appears to be a non-functional camera. This camera only allows me to take selfies; trying to use the phone to take normal pictures simply doesn’t work.

    reply to Harley

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re very sorry to hear that, Harley. I reviewed your account, and I see that we spoke with you about troubleshooting this issue further. When you’re ready, we’ll be happy to assist you at 888-345-5509. Thank you for reaching out to us!
