Weird reason this phone is so bad.
Believe it or not, this phone is TOO slippery. It falls everywhere, it slides off beds, your leg, it even will pop out of your pocket. I get the feeling the design is intentional. They want you to break it, so you must replace it. What a marketing technique!!
Buy something else!!

When the phone is in heavy use like playing a game, its less effective and could be better. Charging still isnt super fast. Overall, the battery doesnt seem as bad as I originally thought but it still has issues.

Picked it up because it was around 200 bucks new. It took close to 4 hours to charge 100% out the box which seemed rather long. Battery life was down to low 80s percent after a hour and 15 minutes of setting up the phone, installing apps, deleting bloatware, and playing 1 game for 10 minutes. Battery life doesnt seem too great. Other than that it seems to run ok. Im used to Alcatel phones so the quality or lack thereof isnt a shock to me.

Doctor calls never received...I could go on and on. Save time and money and get something else. Never had so much trouble and aggravation. I am now back to a Samsung and not one bit of trouble.

My biggest and really only issue: After an update, like the Android 10 or something, my headset stopped working with the phone. 😑 Just updated to Android 11, problem still persists. This headset works with literally any other phone I plug it into. Very disappointed.

-Nothing. The only good part about it is the ability to listen to music without the loading that takes a looooong time on the way to school. Well, if you're the same age as me.

Darius, 04 Jan 2022Why give the device such a bad review if your main issue an... moreThis phone is the problem, not the carrier. My previous phones long before TMobile took over metro and even after all got signal all the time. This phone has crap reception, and it is not the service, it is the phone.
The search history cannot be deleted without disabling it completely.
The messaging app is also bad, half the time it says 8m offline even with a good signal. You cannot jump to the letter in your contacts, have to literally scroll the whole list. There is no default music player. I can go on about the reasons this phone sucks, but I think the point is made.

T -Mobile REVVL 5G - A free phone with over $100 in setup/service charges. What a waste of money. I hate this thing. I would rather have a $29 LG Flip phone. Seriously. Save your self a lot of frustration and buy a Samsung.

After a few months, text were not being sent or received by the app. I had to install and use the official Google text messenger app instead. Some of my old messages that were handled by the previous app didn't transfer over to the Google app, for some reason. Other than that, it worked and still works. This might solve your problem as well.

G., 26 Jan 2022This device will not allow you to set a custom ringtone as ... moreI was able to customize my ringtones with this phone without a third party app. It's easy. Follow these steps for all contacts. 1. Go to settings. 2.Scrool down to "Sounds". 3. Scroll down to "Phone ringtone". 4. Scroll down to "Add ringtone" 5.Select Ringtone from phone's/program's file viewer.
For customizing individual contact ringtones, follow these steps. 1.Go to contacts. 2.Click on a contact. 3. Press the button that's three dots in a line, in the upper right corner. 4. Press "Set Ringtone". 5.Pick a ringtone that's in the list or scroll down to "Add ringtone" and select Ringtone from phone's/program's file viewer.
Oh, as a side not, I don't think you can customize individual contact text sounds.

This device will not allow you to set a custom ringtone as my previous phones had ( Galaxy,Lg).
Songs that are imported from my file did not play once they show in the list of available songs after importing. I was told that the workaround required downloading a third party app which is in my opinion insane

too many steps to attach photos for text messages ; phone should of had a photo icon on message screen

There's a magnifier in the text box that i can't turn off, and it interferes with the functionality of boxes in which we enter text. The "view simplified page" option takes dozens of swipes to get rid of. One would think they do product testing on these things, but they don't.

The phone company that gave me a free revvl5 was metro. This phone doesn't even connect to the service I have to literally run on wifi. Plus it sends blurred pics and receives blurry pics. Mind you this is the second phone that does the same thing. I filed an FCC complaint just waiting while still paying for services not rendered. OUCH!

Had to add apps manually because bringing over through Google kept crashing the phone wouldn't save recent calls. Crazy as clearly this is a Google based phone.
