Today over on Amazon, you can pick up a great deal on the Alcatel IDOL 3. The 5.5″ display device comes unlocked and ready to work on GSM carriers here in the United States for only $179.99. That is $100 off the retail price of the phone and while it was recently replaced with the IDOL 4, it is still an outstanding device for this price. The IDOL 3 will work with both AT&T and T-Mobile so you will have 4G LTE coverage and it comes with a US warranty so you have some support should anything ever go wrong with it.
