    I'm eyeing one granted it becomes available unlocked and available to the international market.

    Alcatel has a real opportunity here, the phone starved Windows Phone fans who are left with legacy x20 devices. They should capitalize on this and not limit it to just T-Mo customers.
    We would probably have to wait till exclusivity with tmobile is finished.. maybe 6 months?

    Sadly, since it's T-Mobile, it might not be that long. Based on their past treatment of Windows Phones, T-mo will probably drop it after three months.

    I got my shipping notice from T-mo! Yay! Maybe that means I'll have it by Christmas. Maybe I'll just order a HP Elite to tide me over until then.

    Does this have to be with T-Mobile? Can it be used as a Tracfone with their BYOP kit?

    It wasn't on the website when I ordered my Idol, so I'm assuming so. When I wrote what you quoted, I was thinking of how they treated the L640 when they had it. In and out in no time (which is puzzling considering how well it sold outside of T-Mobile).

    Yes. It lasted much longer than I thought it would.

    Did those stats provide return rates?

    Nope. It was a Windows central article the other day. Alcatel has 5% of the total Windows Phone marketspace which is really good considering.

    Disregard that last message. My posts weren't working. I've had my phone since the day it came out. Loving it more and more every day. If anyone has questions about the phone or my experience feel free to ask.

    My daughter had a Alcatel Fierce OneTouch XL, but recently died after 8 months. I'm not sure if she dropped it or what, but the OS stopped loading on the phone.

    I went to T-Mobile a couple days ago to get her a new phone. The Alcatel XL was no where to be found, but the new Idol 4S was on a great display. Other phones were on special, Black Friday Event sale - $58 or $0 down for an iPhone 7. The Alcatel Idol 4S was much cheaper though, and with more accessories.

    I got her the Idol 4S. I think its a great phone. I was jealous of the total versus my 950 XL, because the Idol 4S is pretty close to what the XL is.

    Again, great phone. She is really happy with the phone.

    I would love to jump back to windows phone, this phone is hopefully the start of more higher quality phones that people buy, and thus fixing the app gap problem.

    I'm officially off the eying list. I had pretty much decided I'd wait for the next generation of phones that can run some X86 apps but my wife's L640 has been acting up so was still strongly considering one of these for her. She loved the look and feel of the L925 she had back in the day, and so thought she would like the appearance. But when I asked her if she wanted one, she surprised me by suggesting I get me a new phone and she would take my 1520.3. Now I have to figure out if her 640 was really acting up or if it was a devious plot to get a 1520.3 that are no longer available new. Hmmmm.

    So I asked her if I bought a new phone and still liked the 1520.3 better would she take the new phone and she said yes. So I just picked up a 950XL from the local MS store for $284 (veteran discount). I'll try it and if I like it better than the 1520.3 I'll keep it, otherwise she gets it. I had bought two 950XLs last Thanksgiving week for us but quickly returned them because WM10 was so bad at the time.

    I have never used Alcatel. I have always been a Samsung person. However, I'm bored with Samsung and would like to try something new. I wouldn't mind trying this new Alcatel Idol 4s

    If top shelf camera is a top priority for you, likely not. If you want tap-to-pay and wireless charging, forget it.

    If those items fall far down your list and are not make or break... It's a fantastic device in all other respects.
