For anyone interested: the $99 MS Store version with T-Mobile worked just fine in Japan (Tokyo) with NTT DoCoMo including the T-Mobile (2g) free international data option. Not that fast but enough for maps, email and light browsing.
ArmandAleg, 16 Mar 2018I waited, bought my Idol 4s w/win10 January 2018 from MS store unlocked for $65. A price that... moreWoah currently it shows 169$ on MS Store and that too OOS. I would Love to buy it at 65$ since Amoled+ Snapdragon 820+ 21mp Camera makes a great deal.
Max, 09 May 2017Now I understand why people are buying this phone despite of it running on Windows 10 Mobile.
... moreI waited, bought my Idol 4s w/win10 January 2018 from MS store
unlocked for $65. A price that left me with zero 2nd thought, and no buyers remorse whatsoever! Have every app I'll ever need ( and then some) saved as appx files, all easily reinstallable . Also went to the trouble of making a local backup image so even after MS ceases supporting win10 mobile backup (as they did last Oct. with win 7/8/8.1 backup) I'll still be able to have access to my backup image for quick reinstalls from scratch.
Even though win mobile is dead, I'm extremely happy with this device particularly at the price. It was a no-brainer, I considered it a must-buy. Clearly regardless of the state of win mobile $65 is almost a freebie!

Paulo, 07 Feb 2018Can anyone tell me if alcatel idol 4s has Portuguese language? Thanks.Brazilian or Portugal language?
Good phone I bought it for $100.00. Camera is decent, processor is smooth, (windows 10 is not very optimized compared to Blackberry 10, iOS, or Android), only thing is that this phone does NOT have a music equalizer unlike most of its Windows 10 counterparts like the Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE. That being said, music sounds excellent! Screenshots I have not been able to successfully take one. Also most of the apps on the Windows Store work. Just not the most optimized. Again itÂ’s a decent phone but donÂ’t expect like an Android or iPhone. Build quality looks great!
gjoswal, 21 Jan 2018Will it run on any network in india ... even in 2g or 3gIts depends upon the package you received if your package has UMTS1 then support Indian 3g otherwise no
gjoswal, 21 Jan 2018Will it run on any network in india ... even in 2g or 3gIt supports Indian 2G frequencies bu the 3G frequencies aren't compatible with the present network providers. RCOM was the only network which perfectly supported this phone.

gauravoswal, 16 Jan 2018Can this mobile work on lte bands in India Band 3 5 40?The LTE Band of RCOM 4G used to work on it but since RCOM has shut down its operations you can no more use this phone in India, no other India service providers use the LTE Band 4.
Jared, 26 Dec 2017This phone doesn't have a radio at all. So the trick you mentioned won't work on it.There have been comments from users that indicate the device does indeed have an FM Radio but it's buried and you have to look for it. Quite frankly I'm not bothered one way or the other, but obviously it's important to some.
Can work only as 3g device in India. Anything that can be done by changing settings as on LG g4 can work on Indian networks also
