    Wow, that deal is awesome, thanks for sharing! I wouldn't have known that it could be that low for the unlocked version.

    yeah it is, even though it's not showing a countdown timer for a deal, i'm sure it's only for certain time since Msft store also dropped their price from 470 to 400 for now.

    Take advantage of it, I have my 950XL which i'm good with, wife accidentally broke her 950 which fell from high distance, this will be great replacement for her.

    Wow - awesome deal, I may have to buy my daughter one.

    Should I feel like a chump for paying 470 for mine back in January?

    does it cost that much purchasing from USA? I live in Caribbean and I always purchase on US websites , I usually pay courier service to bring in my items, I use my card and ship to their courier address ,then I pay them when item arrives here.

    Unless Alcatel shows some interest in supporting it outside of Microsoft's updates it is still only a great phone. Not spectacular, but it does the job and pretty well. The hardware alone does it enough justice, and that is really it.

    ...I just had to lower mine to 200 or a trade. I am looking to go back on a 950....

    That's pretty rough. Definitely a big jump in a short period of time.

    Ya. I don't see it as a bad thing. I got a good deal on it, not as good as it is now, but it was worth it. I have a hobby of cutting through phones kinda quick though. After using the Idol for a solid couple months though, I learned that the only real advantage it does for me, is the battery life. So I would like to go back to the 950 soon.

    I liked my 950 but don't think I could go back now.
    Going back for the camera?

    Yes that is a big deal to some, but I look more to these...
    -AT&T Service provisioning is so nice (VoLTE etc) and no more unnecessary reg hacks to get MMS pics and stuff to work.
    -Glance and the big one for me here in AZ is the sunlight readability (big time). The idol was a good performer though but again I had to hack the registry to get it to push over 400 nits brightness...

    the exchange rates adds like 35%, then duty import taxes and courier is not cheap normally either.

    I thought when T-Mobile dropped theirs it was just temporary. It stayed low s maybe this will too. If this stays, T-Mobile may have to lower their price again now because so many people will choose unlocked if they know about this deal.

    Yep. It is Alcatel through Amazon. Direct through the OEM.

    Mine arrived today. It is an absolute beautiful phone. It is lightning fast. Camera is amazingly good. I've had many Windows Phones. All of the best. And a few not so great.
    All of the reviewers kind of give this a watered down opinion. I think they are all wrong. I've been on a note 5 for the past 6 months. I like this whole lot better.

    Recently I bought the One M 8 an unlocked Verizon Model. And I couldn't do MMS on my T mobile account so I returned it. I also could not update to Windows 10.

    Idle 4 S is the present day version of the HTC one m8.

    I don't think anyone should hesitate to buy this amazing phone at this amazing price.

    After being away from Windows 10 for 6 months I'm amazed how much better it is now.

    Definitely the best operating system.

    One more thing....unbelievable speakers!!

    That is what I would be afraid of myself. ;) Already do not have enough free time on my hands, then to see it sucked away into a VR vacuum might not be a good thing.
