The software of your mobile phone will be updated to the latest version. All your personal information will be lost after the update process, so we suggest you backup your personal data by PC Suite before using the upgrade.

If your phone fails to connect to PC, you might have a problem with your USB driver installation or you might have an anti-virus or security tool preventing you from accessing your USB port.
To allow proper communication between your computer and your mobile phone, you should make sure that the Alcatel mobile phone USB driver has been installed successfully.

If the automatic installation of USB driver does not process smoothly, you can install the driver manually according to the following steps, or choose to view the guide for how to install Alcatel handset USB driver.

When the driver is installed, Operation System may show a message "Digital Signature Not Found" or "Has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with this version of Windows". Please select "Yes" or "Continue Anyway" to complete the installation.

When the installation is finished, you can check "Device Manager" (accessible on Windows  from 'Start->Control Panel->System', then in the 'Hardware' tab, click on the 'Device Manager' button) to validate if the driver has been installed successfully. You can also reinstall the driver of the device.

If your PC still can not recognize the phone after you install the USB driver, you need to reinsert the USB cable and select "COM Port" on your phone, then install the USB driver again.

General advice: Before you buy a new cell phone or new tablet, please try the following procedure to repair your device in a software way. First charge your battery, backup your important data if possible and in most cases take out SIM and SD card before doing factory reset. It is impossible to recover your data after doing a hard reset, so online backup is always important. For all of your data, a backup should be done on an external device, hard drive, raid system or media. With or without insurance, if your cell phone lost, damaged or stolen at least your invaluable data is backed up in a safe place. If you are about to sell your phone and you want to wipe your personal data, or if your phone affected with virus you have to do a hard reset. In some cases, you can delete the forgotten password or lock pattern from your device as well. All information is for devices with stock based ROMs. If you are using rooted device, always back up your EFS folder first, containing your IMEI info, etc.! Please also note, that a hard reset operation will not unlock your mobile phone's SIM lock or network lock, but it will remove the unlock pattern, remove the user password or PIN password (NOT the SIM card's 4 digit PIN code). Also note that the firmware version will not be affected in any way, it will not be downgraded, it will remain the same you are using and if you have rooted your device, root privileges remain also unaffected.
