Question

Alcatel Idol 3 Smartphone

I am trying to find out from someone who has used this phone if they are able to send and receive text messages with pictures. I am surprised that the reviews don't mention the quality of the text messaging.

Can't guess why this is a question. But....

Two things.

1. Android phones mean we can replace the texting app. So no issue with that.

2. Text message with pictures requires a data plan. I will not enter into any long drawn out discussion why this is. There are plans for voice and text and the very next thing the owner gripes about is no pictures via SMS text.

Sorry for bothering you

Apparently I should not have created an account with CNET. I didn't know how else to ask an actual user of this phone about it.

You need more than an actual user.

I hope what I shared helped. I've seen folk gripe about the picture issue and we dive in to see if they have a data plan. The discussion tends to repeat a lot so I shortchanged you. Sorry that offended you.
