It makes sense, therefore, that you might want to get your hands on the device for yourself. But how can you do so? So far, the phone has only been launched in South Korea, while other markets are set to get the phone “soon.”
Here’s everything we know about buying the LG V30 in the U.S. so far.
Buying an LG V30 unlocked
If you’re willing to pay full price for the LG V30, then perhaps the best thing to do is buy one unlocked. Why? Well, not only does that mean that you can take the phone to whatever carrier you want, but it also means you don’t have to worry about paying extra fees each month — because you’ve already paid those extra fees.
It hasn’t been confirmed if the LG V30 will be available unlocked, but we’ll update this article as we hear more. The phone has been released in South Korea, and its price equivalent comes out to be around $840 for the 64GB model, and $885 for 128GB.
Buying an LG V30 from your wireless carrier
Don’t want to buy it outright or have some credits from your carrier to use? You’re in luck — wireless carriers around the U.S. will offer the LG V30, and while they’ll likely offer slightly different deals and prices, your carrier should be able to set you up with the new device. Here’s everything we know about buying the LG V30 on a wireless carrier.
Buying an LG V30 from AT&T
The LG V30 will be available from AT&T starting October 5 online and in stores the next day. It’s $27 per month for 30 months ($810), and for a limited time, AT&T is throwing in a free LG V30 for new customers on AT&T Next with DirecTV service. The carrier’s ongoing Unlimited Plus and AT&T Unlimited Choice promotions include free HBO and DirecTV Now for as little as $10 more a month, after a $25 monthly video credit.
AT&T says the V30 will be the latest smartphone to support its 5G Evolution technology, which can achieve speeds up to 1Gbps. It’s live in parts of Austin, Texas, and Indianapolis, Indiana, with more markets to come later this year.
Buying an LG V30 from Sprint
Sprint will offer the LG V30, as the company’s CEO confirmed on Twitter. We’ll update this article when we hear pricing and availability.
Buying an LG V30 from T-Mobile
T-Mobile will open pre-orders of the LG V30 starting October 5 online and in stores ahead of a launch on October 13. It’s $80 down and $30 per month ($800) on T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan.
The carrier says the V30 will be the first smartphone to support its 600MHz LTE, which delivers a stronger cell signal in areas like Cheyenne, Wyoming and Scarborough, Maine.
Buying an LG V30 from Verizon
Verizon won’t be offering pre-orders for the LG V30, but says that it’ll be available online and in stores starting October 5, and that it’ll take advantage of the carrier’s high-speed Gigabit Class LTE service when it launches later this year.
Update: Updated availability for AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile.
