    I love it when I'm wrong. It makes it easy to deal with disappointments.
    Never take the word of a T-mobile employee. They don't know what a Windows phone is. And when you tell them what it is, they try to talk you out of buying one.

    This is the phone that has the best chance of bringing continuum to the mainstream, if you can call windows phone fans mainstream that is

    The Android version supports NFC and Android Pay. I wonder why this version does not support mobile pay.

    I'm going to throw this out there; either:

    A) This will be a "superphone" priced at a "superphone" price and released within the year.

    B) This will be a "high-end midrange" phone priced a little higher with previous year's flagship specs released only after the SD830 is officially announced as the SoC on any 2017 device. Meaning it will be 2017 before we see it. That way Alcatel can still position it as a viable competitor.

    C) T-Mo has scrapped the phone and nobody else wants it and the product page on their site was a place marker that got leaked.

    D) Alcatel has decided to stay purely with Android and cancelled the phone, therefore resulting in the same assessment of T-Mo webpage.

    I'm leaning toward "B" personally but a fun multiple choice game to play.
    Turn in your Chrystal ball. I can say that without being arrogant since I didn't predict anything. ;)

    Carriers can play with subsidizing phones and often do.
    Yes they do, but now that WC reports T-Mobile is selling them unlocked, its no sure thing they will make a sale loss back on service.

    I have mixed emotions. I REALLY enjoyed buying several AT&T subsidized 640s for cheap and giving them as gifts to people not on AT&T via a loophole in AT&T policies that let a non-AT&T customer unlock brand new, never activated AT&T phones. So I will miss those kinds of deals but if this is the start of a trend that will migrate to other carriers like some un-carrier practices have, the overall effect will be positive.

    • Basic failure that when traveling between cities I have no voice or data on long stretches of major American interstate highway
    That's the only item on your list that has bitten me. Took some road trips recently and was shocked at the lack of service on major highways. Good thing I keep all of North America maps on my phone for when the car's nav says Huh? when I ask for directions to someplace like Mt. Rushmore. And what's with Cortana's complete inability to do anything without data service? I mean, seriously, you can't ask her to set an alarm because she has to ask some cloud computer what time it is now when the current time is right there in the phone? {/rant]

    You mean you don't have a Cobra 40-Channel CB in your car good buddy? All you need to do is find somebody with their ears on and ask for a 10-20. For our younger readers, I suggest watching Smokey and the Bandit to get an idea of what I just wrote.

    I don't use the newfangled 40 channel units but I have a few 23 channel units including one that is an AM/FM/CB/8 track combo deck.
