    I'll probably pay the $10 for a new SIM just to avoid Cricket's customer service.
    That's a shame. Around me the stores are uber helpful and they always give the SIM free.

    I saw your other posts...cool deal.

    I too went in on one for 325, since I ended up with two idol4s phones now. I sold a oneplus 3 and my 950 xl to cover one.

    Are you thinking of preordering the Europe bound variant, or forget about it? I believe you're in that region or maybe I'm mistaken...

    It went on preorder several days ago for that region in Germany. link

    Yep, I'am from France. Here, Idol Pro isn't again available in pre-order, but I think it should be the case soon. Not Idol Pro for me, I thinking to order a Samsung Galaxy S8 ^^

    Maybe a WDRT update soon to display/support Idol Pro.

    But the price (599€, $672)! How many do you think will sell? They cost 40% of that in the US, and have for awhile, and it doesn't appear that they're flying off the shelves.

    Apparently Alcatel took marketing classes from Microsoft. They killed what could have been a decent selling phone for them.

    Is that normal pricing for Germany?

    I have the exact same problem here. The open market firmware is much newer and i can't get rid of the T-Mobile firmware. Can we modify something ourself to get this flashing done?

    we have been working trying to work around the system checks when flashing but nothing has worked as of yet, I think the only way this will get resolved if alcatel get off their arses and fix the broken ffu on wdrt, which they have known about for quite some time now.

    Anything new from their Twitter accounts and communication directly to you about a time frame or anything new? Or did they leave it with just wait for the update?

    they have not said anything new to me and going by this I don't think it will ever get fixed.

    Was hoping that this device's release in the EU would mean a new/fixed firmware at the least. Sad to see that still hasn't happened, but glad to hear that Alcatel will eventually ship back a proper open market device with enough prodding. (Apparently many detailed notes in the ticket and RMA aren't enough for that. :-/ )

    Since Microsoft's mobile strategy for years has been to focus on mobile for other platforms instead of their own, this is unfortunately how the road is going to end for all of us. There aren't any noteworthy Windows Phones coming up or even rumored to come up, so I think the writing's on the wall. And no, Surface Phone doesn't count as a credible rumor. It's the same clickbait fodder from 2014, just repackaged every few months with different specs.

    As much as it kills me, I suspect that I'm not far behind you. I think that WP did (and still does) have some quality attributes despite the huge gulf between it and other platforms in terms of features and apps. But you shouldn't have to make compromises when buying supposed "flagship" grade devices, and that's how it is with WP. Want a good camera? You have to sacrifice screen size. Want good battery life? Oops, looks like you're going to have to sacrifice the camera. It's so stupid and unnecessary.

    I want a modern smartphone with a big screen, good camera, and a stylus. I want something that just works. Now. Not in two or three months when an update might or might not make it work. I'm tired of unboxing a new phone and instantly being so disappointed that I'm already hoping for something better "next year". I was patient when WP7 was released, but there's no excuse for MS to still be so far behind 5 years later.

    I hope Microsoft pulls something good out of their *** before the Galaxy Note 8 gets here, because if not, I'm gone and so are the rest of us who want a serious productivity tool. Frankly, they're lucky the Note 7 went down in flames, or else 90% of their remaining 0.78% of smartphone users would have defected.

    I hear ya. Such limited choice in devices makes it very difficult. I hope the 950/xl don't end the w10m legacy as the best devices. Cuz so far that's the way it seems....the Idol 4s comes kinda close. The elite X3 even closer. But those devices are still in the shadows of the last of the lumia line. I hope a device comes soon that knocks the socks off folks otherwise I may join another crowd over time too...

    The phone has potential. Alcatel could do a lot more with this hardware if they just put effort behind it...
