    I just want to add confirmation that TMobile is not unlocking phones UNLESS you are on their network for 40 days... I find this completely ridiculous when they charged me an extra $30 because I told them I was not going to be on their network. Why would you charge me an extra 30 if you still wont unlock it. I probably would have been better paying the cheaper price for the phone and then paying for 2 months on their cheapest plan. and then still unlocking it through a 3rd party.

    Read your other posting...
    This is almost the same deal that happened with me when trying to deal with T-Mobile after buying a One Touch XL from them.
    Never did get them to unlock it.

    This new Alcatel phone needs to be sold unlocked otherwise it too will fade away.

    You should contact Legere and ask him, "Why so much carrier bull**** at Uncarrier?"

    There is really no way to get this phone without being a T-Mobile customer or having a T-Mobile line. You cant just walk into the store (on ATT or cricket or whatever) buy the phone, unlock it, and leave. Unfortunately.
    ugh. Microsoft needs to sell this through their store. this is horses***

    I don't think so. Maybe a devious or dumb rep said that, but people buy phones to give as gifts all the time.

    Yes. Hence the limited LTE bands supported and it being a carrier exclusive model. Good for T-mobile as they may pick up new accounts from it, but a downer for those who like this phone and are with another carrier. Best to wait and see what's in the pipeline...

    I've seen conflicting documentation concerning the supported bands on this phone. I'm sure there's a field engineering mode where bands are probably "unchecked". It may be as simple as a quick reg edit too.

    As far as unlocking, my colleague bought a T-Mobile LG V10 used and tried to get it unlocked since he's on Cricket. It took awhile, and was a lot of hassle, but just today he told me they finally unlocked it for him. I don't know the details of what it took though.

    So I just messaged Alcatel a few days ago about the 4S getting an unlocked international release and this was the response.

    Not a confirmation but brings some hope that they're looking into it.

    Dan, since this thread boils down to "How do you get it unlocked" I'm surprised no one has bought up which LTE Bands it actually has. All the specs say 2, 4 &12. From my understanding that pretty much limits it to T-Mobile. Does anyone know if it is compatible with other carriers?

    AT&T has bands 2,4 and 12 with the addition of band 17. Seems like it should work. And didn't Daniel try his (which was unlocked) on AT&T's network?
