Alcatel one touch 510a

i bought this phone as a cheap way to use our free line for work i do with an organization that i don't want people to contact me on my personal line.
it was the cheapest phone i could find. as far as i'm concerned, it's not even a good one for the price. the only thing i like about it is that i can save contacts for this phone to a sim card. however, finding contacts is going to be for the birds since they aren't put in any kind of order. to get a contact, one has to go through the list unless they are a part of the recent file. however, that is problematic as well--one has to go through the list until one gets to the number wanted. if the number is called 15 times there are 15 entries. i don't understand why the entry is not overwritten with the most current call but it's not.
supposedly, this phone has a speaker phone, but i can't ffind it--and i need it. i've read at the user guide and unless i'm blind, i can't find where it's located so i can use it.
the other thing i don't like about this phone is that lock feature is a joke--all one has to do is press the * key and the key that is under the word YES. i don't call that locked--except one can't use any other keys.
if this phone has a 14 day battery, i'm a monkey's uncle. i forgot the phone at work on a friday and when i came into work on monday the phone was dead. this phone has to be recharged everyday and usage means the battery dies even quicker.
