Not necessarily - apparently that phone comes in two varieties. You'll need to buy the one that says "dual sim" as it is optional.

I don't think so, Sakura, there is no mention whatsoever on Koodo's site that it would be the dual SIM version. Count on it that is the regular version..

PS I didn't even know that phone had been added, haha!

Does it have a micro SD card slot in lieu of the dual SIM?

Yes. It's not exactly "in lieu" of the extra SIM slot, but it does have a microSD slot according to the specs available everywhere :)

Thanks for your reply.

Given that the dual sim variant does not have a micro SD slot, and the single sim variant does, I presumed that one would choose one instead of the other. Hence "in lieu".

Does the Koodo variant come with the "boom band" (wrist gear)?

I'm tempted to say "yes", but I don't have the phone myself. Let me try to get an official answer on this...

Daniel, it's been confirmed that the Idol X+ sold by Koodo (and most likely Telus) doesn't include the BOOMBand wristband.

I had a feeling that would be the case. Just curious. Thanks!

the Idol X+ in canada doesnt include the wristband or the jbl headphones that alcatel advertises them with(i emailed alcatel and they seemed to think it should come with the headphones and told me to go back to the store to get them, but they arent listed on the box)

The Idol X+ sold in NA is only one simcard but has an sdcard slot, i think the european one is dualsimm but doesnt have an sdcard slot
