  • How does the VR Headset work?
    It’s pretty simple. Your Alcatel IDOL 4S includes VR goggles with an adjustable headstrap. You slide your IDOL 4S into the slot in the front of the goggles, depress the switch on the opposing side to lock the phone in, place the goggles on your head, and then control the action with the buttons on the underside of the headset.
  • What do those buttons do?
    On the bottom of your VR goggles, there are two buttons. The one on the left works like the back key on your Alcatel IDOL 4S. When you press it, you go back one screen at a time. Do not worry; you will not be able to go back out of the VR launcher. The button on the right is your action button. When you want to select an option or action, press it.
  • How do I navigate through my VR content while my device is in the goggles?
    Just turn your head and follow the targeting reticle to see all your options. The device will see what you are looking at and you can press the action button to select it.
  • How do I play games?
    Virtual Reality games work with the motion of your head to guide your avatar through the environment. You just turn your head to see more of the playing field, and navigate your character. To make a selection press the action key.
  • What is so special about VR videos?
    With Virtual Reality videos, there is no edge of the screen. The action doesn’t just take place in front of you; it takes place all around you. Turn your head in any direction to see more of the video. You are inside the experience, not just watching from the sidelines.
