Also to add, Cricket is supposed to be launching device financing in August [reddit.com]. Not sure why finance on prepaid, but they're doing it.

not bad. i'm hoping that amazon will do a pre-order deal on this phone like they did with the Idol 3.
I'm in the process of switching 5 phones to Cricket. I would have gotten this if I hadn't just bought a Moto G4 and two BLU R1 phones for considerably less money.

Would be slick if Moto G4 wasn't an option.

What type of content is in the Alcatel VR store? If I have this phone, am I only limited to the content in their store?

Probably not. It's 6 months with Cricket. I tried unlocking my Cricket iPhone 5s through ATT's portal and it didn't work.

I don't think anything proprietary. Should work with any generic VR (cardboard) apps/demos.

Well, its exclusive to Cricket, so full price is the only way to get it if you're interested in the phone. Slick is taking advantage of credits.

Why would you get this over the ZTE Axon 7 (SD 820, 64GB, 4GB RAM, Fingerprint, 20MP OIS, USB-C) w/ Headphones for $50 more? The Alcatel has no carrier aggregation and is weaker by a magnitude for its high price. It should be at most $249, but its being jacked up because of the VR helmet (which is at most $20). The problem with either of these brands is no confirmed carrier support from things like VoLTE or WiFi calling. shake head
LOL DrRad pimping this phone while slamming the higher end idol 4s phone.

Nicely done, playing both side of the fence.
