    So a few days ago i went to the best buy bin and i found this Alcatel One-Touch Evolve and it had no sim card or a back cover but it did have the battery. And when i brought it home the battery kept on falling out. and yes it is the RIGHT battery. so i tried to tape the battery inside the phone, but it wont turn on. and i do have 2 other sim cards if needed. and when i try to charge the phone a white LED light comes on at the top and i dont know what that means... and i dont know if its Water damaged or if the battery is bad. please get a hold of me ASAP!! i really want this phone to work. Thanks!!!

    Welcome to Android Central! In case the phone needs the back cover to be intact, you could buy a replacement cover for about $10: http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=TAWIndqd.

    Replacement batteries are also cheap (about $10): https://www.amazon.com/Alcatel-Batte...cUvbUpU6172133. It's hard to know if your battery is actually dead, so it's worth a try.

    Unfortunately, there's no way to tell if the phone has water damage (unless perhaps if you open the whole thing up).

    Ok, but when i put on the back cover on the phone does the battery still need to be taped up? and can i tape a old cover from a old phone onto the alcatel??

    My guess is that the battery doesn't have to be taped in place with the back cover on -- but you won't know until you try. Since every phone is different, you really need the back cover designed for that phone in order for it to fit properly.
