LG V10 will be available from T-Mobile starting October 28

tmobilelgv10

UPDATE: T-Mobile’s LG V10 product page is live and confirms that band 12 LTE support is included. T-Mo has said that all band 12 LTE devices must support Voice over LTE (VoLTE), too, so the V10 ought to include VoLTE as well.

UPDATE 2: Two more things about the LG V10. First off, T-Mobile has said that it will only offer the LG V10 in black, like you see above.

Second, T-Mobile says that its customers can take advantage of the V10 promo that’s being offered by LG, which AT&T mentioned in its V10 announcement. The promotion will give you a free 200GB microSD card, extra battery, and a batter charging cradle if you buy the V10 before November 15. The website for the promotion can be found here, but it doesn’t seem to be loading for me quite yet.

 

ORIGINAL: After confirming plans to carry LG’s dual-screened V10 earlier this month, T-Mobile has now revealed when we’ll actually be able to get our mitts on the device.

The LG V10 will be available from T-Mobile.com starting Wednesday, October 28, with in-store availability to follow on Friday, October 30. Pricing for the V10 will be set at $0 down and 18 payments of $25 per month with JUMP! On Demand. At the end of those 18 months, you can either return the phone or pay it off and keep it.

If you’d prefer to buy the LG V10 on an installment plan that’ll end with you keeping the phone, you’ll be able to do so. The payment plan will include a $0 down payment and 24 monthly payments of $25 each. T-Mobile’s full retail pricing for the LG V10 will be $599.99, which Magenta notes is $100 off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.

One of the main draws of the LG V10 is its dual-screen setup. There’s the main 5.7-inch 2560×1440 display as well as a 2.1-inch 160×1040 screen above the main display. That secondary display can be used as an always-on screen to display info like time, date, weather, and battery life, and LG says that that’ll use minimal battery. You can also use the secondary display for app shortcuts, music controls, and notifications.

The other big feature of the V10 are its cameras. The V10 actually has three cameras: two 5-megapixel shooters on the front that can enable 120-degree wide-angle selfies, and a third 16-megapixel camera around back. That rear camera has an f/1.8 aperture and all kinds of video features, including a Manual Video Mode that’ll let you adjust things like frame rate, ISO, white balance, and focus. There’s also a Multi-View Recording feature that’ll capture video using all three of the V10’s cameras.

Rounding out the V10’s spec list is a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a microSD slot for adding more storage, NFC, LTE, and a removable 3000mAh battery. LG has also ensured that the exterior of the V10 is as beefy as the interior, equipped it with a stainless steel frame and a Dura Skin bottom and rear cover for added durability and grip.

So now that we’ve got the pricing and availability info for the LG V10, who’s buying?

    This is a very interesting phone and I’m going to give it a try! Looks like a decent upgrade to my Z3 and a good bridge till the SD820 handsets start rolling out in 2016.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      I know a little off subject if I may ask how is your Z3 treating you to this date?

      • LuvMusic

        My Z3 has been a great phone. Battery life is excellent, good screen, good size and still good performance. Only problem I had was hand-offs between cellular and wifi connections, unreliable. Only reason I’m changing is I’m uncertain of Sony’s future in wireless, specifically in the U.S. Also, just want to try something different.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Swwet, it is strange to me Sony has turn away from USA considering that they have made very successful products un the world. Last question if may when did you first notice the cell and wifi calls issues? (Like for example Android upgrade software)

        • LuvMusic

          It was after one of the 5.01 upgrades. Tweaked my network settings which helped but I still have to toggle airplane mode on/off once on awhile.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          sounds like one of my friends issues he had on his. Sounds like a nightmare. I hope their is a fix meanwhile your waiting for upgrade eventually.

  • queenren

    Did they say what colors are available? This may be my next JOD device.

    • Alex Wagner

      I haven’t seen T-Mobile specifically mention which colors it’ll be carrying, but T-Mo’s LG V10 pre-registration page shows the black version, so that could be one color that’ll be available.

      https://explore.t-mobile.com/lg-v10

      • thepanttherlady

        Just black? :/

        I’ll have to look for it elsewhere.

        • james

          Opal blue too

        • thepanttherlady

          Will you please post the link to where you saw that? As soon as it comes through I’ll approve it.

          Thank you!

        • james

          Sorry i read it incorectly but there is good info

        • thepanttherlady

          Yeah, unfortunately, it says AT&T is getting the Opal Blue, nothing with regard to T-Mobile. Thank you though!

        • -_____________- I wanted Opal Blue. Shoot, we could’ve at least got the other blue, instead of typicaly black if we weren’t going to get Opal Blue. Shoot, something unique.

        • zp

          Agreed. Every other color rather than black was better.

        • I hope we can buy different color backings like we were able to do for the G4

        • zp

          I was going to order tomorrow, but now passing. T-mo get’s the worst color of the entire line. Sigh.

        • james
        • Alex Wagner

          T-Mobile just got back to me:

          “The phone will be available in one black silicone variant, which is LG’s flagship color.”

        • thepanttherlady

          Blahhhhhhhhh! :|

          Looks like I’ll be buying unlocked elsewhere! :)

          Maybe. LOL

        • Alex Wagner

          Ha. I know, it’s kind of a bummer that T-Mo is only carrying the black version when LG is making other fun colors:

          http://www.lgnewsroom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/LG-V10-02.jpg

        • zp

          Agreed. F the black. Stupid, stupid T-mo move.

      • james

        I did on other site opal blue black

  • JustSaying

    I’m loving the “Sponsored From Around the Web” ads on this page. A nasty toe nail is something I really want to see. (sarcasm)

  • drupi79

    This is what is replacing my nexus 6. While I have loved having a pure Google phone, I have missed the features of my G3, namely the buttons being on the back of the phone, screen tap to turn on, and the camera. the G3 took outstanding night shots in comparison to this nexus 6.

    being a similar phone to the G4 but with 4GB of Ram, and the manual mode in video sold me. I could care less about the secondary screen or dual front facing cameras. Oh and being able to put my 64GB microSD back into a phone is nice to.

    • gardobus

      Plus, this thing has a fingerprint reader, 64gb internal memory, and is built well. Mmm…

      • james

        Sound amazing

    • james

      I really feel like 4gb will make the difference i had nexus 6 now the g4. I always felt lil mor ram would be nice a beast

    • D_Wall__

      Same, I cracked my screen on my N6, Warrantied it and Assurant gave me a GS6. Yuck.. I may get this v10 Since the nexus 6p wont be here anything soon..

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      If I may what is manual mode video? I have little to no experience on camara stuff.

      • drupi79

        you can control exposure, F-stop, focus, etc.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Sound fascinating, thanks for educating me.

  • Bradley Karas

    Band 12? VoLTE?

    • Alex Wagner

      T-Mo’s product page for the V10 does mention band 12 LTE support, so VoLTE should be a go, too.

      http://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phones/lg-v10.html

      • Bradley Karas

        That’s cool. All the other LG products did I can’t imagine why they would not support it

      • james

        It is i read it somewhere else

    • Alex Wagner

      Also, solid profile picture.

  • Joey

    I’m I seeing things correctly. 64GB’s of storage? lol

    • gardobus

      Yes you are, it comes with 64gb by default.

    • james

      Yes 64 gb expandble to 2 tb

  • gardobus

    I wonder if we’ll get the SD card, battery, and charger promo that AT&T is listing.

    • Alex Wagner

      Yeah, I’m looking into that. The website for that promo isn’t loading for me, so I’ll reach out to T-Mo and ask.

      • LuvMusic

        I’ll be interested in what you learn. If I’m reading the news correctly, Tmo is giving us $100.00 off versus throwing in freebies. The SD card is not a big deal for me. The extra battery and charger would have been nice.

        • james

          I got free. Battery charger with g4 and it will work u can get a g4 battery on amazon 34.00 with charger real lg. Will work

      • gardobus

        I’ll keep my fingers crossed! We didn’t get the nice earbuds but this promo would make up for that!

        • Alex Wagner

          T-Mo got back to me about the microSD promotion. They say that while the promo is sponsored by LG, T-Mobile customers will be able to take advantage as well. Hooray free goodies!

    • james

      No because AT&T is selling for 699 tmobile 600

      • james

        Maybee later

      • TS50

        The promo is through LG (not Att) for all carriers

    • Flowingwind

      Yes you will. AT&T is charging an extra $100 because they can. When you registered you phone with LG you will have the chance to get the promotion. You have to purchase the LG V10 by November 15. The link for the promotion is below.

      http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v10/promo

  • dtam

    hopefully another price cut for the g4 when this is launched?

  • CaelanM

    I have the G4, extra back, battery and charger and I’m extremely happy with it. Just as I was with the G3. I want the V10, I’m just not sure when to get it. I’m on the original JUMP!, so I can do it in February. But I do love my G4. It would be black for me, unless T-Mobile gets the light blue. If there is a promotion like for the G4, I’ll definitely be getting the V10.

    • james

      I heard black and blue

    • steveb944

      Promo confirmed in case you didn’t see.

  • TmoSubTwo
  • David

    Don’t buy at launch. LG phone price drop like a rock. I bought my G3 for $380 March this year, and it’s not even November, you can get G3 brand new on eBay now for $230. Talk about throwing money in the water.

    • auser72

      That phone is almost two years old

    • StevenM

      The G3 is a great phone, but it should be noted that it dropped like a rock due to the lack of band 12, not due to it being LG.

    • cloud strife

      The G4 was around the corner during that period & it’s a couple of months already since it was launched.

      I got my G3 last Aug. 2014 and the price back then at T-mo is $500.

    • NardVa

      The G4 went from $600 to around $450 within 3 months of being released. The V10 will be under $500 by Christmas.

      • Mr. 5 Star

        I was going to wait for the price to drop a bit, but With the promotion, it is worth it. The 200gb sd card retails for $170+ alone, not to mention battery and craddle for around ~$50 or more, thats over $200 worth of “free” stuff. If you wait for the price to drop $200, it’ll be a few months. That’s how I’m looking at it, anyway.

  • james

    I agreee but ot is good price up front AT&T is more. I only keep phone six moths and get a new one. Looks sweet. I love that they are staying with removable battery and expandble storage.

  • brandon johnson

    so my concern with this phone is directly related to the second screen. numerous shots show it displaying the status bar (signal, notifications, etc) but then still having that redundantly displayed on the main screen as well. Is there an option to disable the notification tickers and so forth on the main display, or are you stuck with two?

    • steveb944

      You can always use a different launcher I’m sure. Test it out at the store.

      • brandon johnson

        different launcher is fine, i use Nova currently. but generally the don’t support unique hardware configurations (see: Galaxy Edge devices). Also, this is only a stopgap, as it would only affect the main homepage/launcher, but not individual apps.

  • Perfect! I might use my score for this in January!

  • D_Wall__

    Should i get this or not? Ive been praying for the Nexus 6p. I have a Jump available Now and in Jan.. hmm..

    • Marty

      I’m struggling with the same thought…I’ve had my jump available since September 24th and have been patiently awaiting the nexus 6P…but if the 6P doesn’t come to T-Mobile then…

      • dtam

        all indications is that both nexii will be sold exclusively through the google store

        • D_Wall__

          Yeah, Thats what i keep seeing so far its a shame.

      • D_Wall__

        Yes, Im in the same boat. I may Just get the V10 even though im a huge nexus fan. Even have a nexus 9 and 7 tablet. But the V10 looks to be great. Anything is better then this GS6 im using lol.

        • Marty

          basically how I feel haha – anything is better than this horrible GS6. the V10 is definitely in a class of its own – I think I’ll be going to it come Wednesday and taking advantage of that awesome promotion lol.

        • D_Wall__

          Yes thats true. Have you seen. http://www.lgv10promo.com/ For the free stuff? I dont know if the website is live but the freebies are always great.

    • Jose

      Same here. Im a big Nexus fan. I have the nexus 6 love the size. I. Patiently waiting on the nexus 6p, the V10 is very tempting for the good camera the extra battery and micro SD card you get. But I love the clean nexus software. And front facing speakers to me is a biggie. I can’t decide. Still no signs of 6p making it to T-Mobile. I have a jump available

    • steveb944

      Don’t hold out for the Google Play Store exclusive 6P. If anything it’ll be like the N4/5? that came many months later and at a premium.

    • Daniel Judd

      If your on JUMP version 1 and want to go to JUMP on demand i figured out a trick. Go to your local tmob and jump down to the lg flip phone. Then return the flip phone. The restocking fee is $25 but it will completely wipe out your EIP. Now you can switch to JUMP on demand and get the v10. Also by doing it this way you still will have your 3 trades for the next year.

      • Matt

        And because you’re talking about it here, it will come to a stop sooner than later…

  • emcdonald75

    I might just buy this. I really wish LG went with a more powerful processor and GPU, but all of that storage is just hard to give up. LG has a promotion now for an extra battery, charging cradle and a 200GB microsd card when you buy the LG V10. I have to buy this phone. Just when I was about to order a Samsung S6 Edge phone 128GB or the plus version. Still mad Google did not bring the Nexus 6p to the wireless carriers. That was going to be my next phone. I just really hope T-Mobile has more colors than just the black.

    • james

      Its only for at&t battery stuff but tnobiles 100 cheaper

      • yankeesusa

        It will also work for the tmobile version. It’s an lg promotion.

      • Flowingwind

        AT&T chargers an extra $100 because they know customers will pay it, just like what Sprint does. The extra 200GB microSD card, battery and charger come from LG not the carriers.

        • james

          Im not saying im right but the engadget article said it was at&t but hey i hope u r right because i will take it

        • Flowingwind

          When you registered your LG V10 with LG you will have the chance to get the promotion. You have to purchase the LG V10 by November 15. The link for the promotion is below. LG will mail the promotional items to your home.

          http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v10/promo

        • Flowingwind

          The promotion is for AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. The link is below. The start for the redemption is 10/28/15.

          http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v10#where-to-buy

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Right their like will also include this if you pay us extra $100!

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      Me too I agree Google did naughty on their end! And thanks for not choosing that samy same!

  • NoMoreSamsung

    I would like to have that phone. I am so so done with Samsung. I have bought their phones since the first Galaxy and as far as Im concerned they sold out. LG is stepping up to fill the gap and would like to support them.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      I am so glad that you have embrace LG family. I totally agree the support is outstanding I gave up on Samsung on the 1st gen Galaxy.

  • GreatNews

    I need help to decide, I have now the G4 but can’t decide if I should get the V10 or not, I don’t mind the bigger size and the price is the same! I am still rocking Version #1 on Jump! So I could upgrade to the V10 now and probably by the time the G5 comes out I’ll be able to change again and so on… But I can’t decide anybody could help me out here please?

    • steveb944

      You’re on JOD right? If there’s no change in payments, remember you have 3 updates a year, and you don’t have any out of pocket costs up front. Also do the extra features make it worth it for you?

      The only other big phones coming prior to the G5 will be possibly be the Priv for this year, and then all the 820 devices next year (HTC & Samsung flagships).

    • Daniel Judd

      If your on JUMP version 1 and want to go to JUMP on demand i figured out a trick. Go to your local tmob and jump down to the lg flip phone. Then return the flip phone.

      • GreatNews

        What’s the idea of switching to the flip phone? Right now I have version 1 I have 2 free upgreads a year and once I give back let’s say my G4 for the V10 the balance is wipped and starts fresh with the V10

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          That’s the thing I was questioning is it worth it for people like you and me!?

        • GreatNews

          I think I’ll Jump! Now to the V10 in 6 Months from now it’s around the time the G5 will probably be released I’ll be ready for another Jump! So why not?

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          That’s really great news to hear their is really nothing to lose in fact we win big by buying now!

        • GreatNews

          I jumped! And my card got already charged which mean its probably already shipping, and I choose next day air so hopefully I’ll get it tomorrow

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Woohoo great i am screening for joy that is a great deal you jump on! Are you planing on buying Gzmos for your

      • Mottyengel

        You’re a genius!.. I’m speechless…

        I couldn’t think of a way to do it…

        Guys, the reason why jump on demand is better than ever jump 1 is that you don’t have to pay the entire tax of the phone (50 to 70 dollars) every time you upgrade, because they’re structuring it as a lease. And you get 3 upgrades a year instead of 2

        • GersonT1000

          I don’t know, I went to a TMo store and was asking them several questions about the JOD plan. When I asked if I had to pay tax on the full price or just on the remaining lump payment after the 18 months if I wanted to keep a phone, they said that the tax was added every month.

          Can someone who has JumpOD verify this by looking at their bills? It’s hard to get the right answer from the TMobile reps. They are helpful but there are always differing answers to the same question.

        • Mottyengel

          The one issue with jump one and 2 was the tax. If im only in reality leasing the phone for 6 months, why do i have to pay all of the tax? so jod fixes it by adding it to the bill every month. it’s hard to find it on the bill though.. It’s supposed to add a few dollars each month and then im assuming if you keep the phone the remaining tax would be paid on the remaining balance.

        • GersonT1000

          Yeah, I figured they just lumped it into the tax and not have a separate line for EIP tax. But that’s good to know, thanks! This is definitely a plus, paying just about $15 in tax (over six months when upgrading twice a year) with JOD as opposed to upgrading twice a year with one of the old plans and paying around $60 in taxes each time. That’s nearly $100 in savings per year, plus another $2/month savings from not having to pay a $10 monthly fee for the Jump plan (assuming you use the $8/month insurance). Even more savings if you use SquareTrade instead at $100 for two years (less than $5/month), which will also let you cancel a policy and give you a prorated refund.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Even if we upgrade phone 3x a year square trade will still work? If yes that is awesome!

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          I agree I am worried, I like using the accessory EIP I am not giving that up ever.

    • JBLmobileG1

      I think I may use my jump and get this. Like you said its pretty much the same price as the LG G4… I think a penny more but you get a bigger screen, ram, memory etc. Doesn’t need a case because of the built quality. The only issue I ever had on the G4 was the video would get a little blurry when zooming in all the way and it would start moving around no matter how still you were. I am just wondering if LG will keep the V10 updated considering its not a part of the G line of phones.

      • GreatNews

        They said by the announcement that it will upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow by the end of this year or beginning of next year so no worries about that

  • Verizonthunder

    Nice LG will definitely upgrade my current device LG G4 for LG V10. Upgrade internal storage, Qualcomm antenna booster, 4gb ram, 5.7 inches, dual screen, micro SD card slot and removable battery… Sigh this is even a feature now. My brother will like his new/used LG G4.

  • My next phone, decent specs, enough of the Note size with features that are still important to me (SD card & removable battery), will miss the stylus though, coming from Note 3.Only thing that I’m iffy about is the UI & and unlock-ability of the bootloader. I’ve never owed a LG phone. I feel like this is a better phone than the Moto X Pure I was considering, because not left in limbo about VoLTE with Moto

    • Acdc1a

      LG UI is cartoonish but certainly usable. Dialer app is almost identical to Samsung.

      • Jay Holm

        Neither of which truly matter because they can easily be changed.

        • Acdc1a

          Call me crazy but I don’t lile the idea of a 3rd party dialer. I see my data being compromised.

    • JBLmobileG1

      I came from the Note 3 to the LG G4. Man oh man is this phone sssooooooo much better and I could only imagine how great the V10 is. With LG the software is so much smoother with less lag and issues in general. No more freezing or force closes… I don’t think I will ever buy a Samsung phone again after using LG. Trust me losing the stylus is nothing. And the battery life is Amazing which I am sure is just as good on the V10. Whatever LG does to their software makes the phone battery trickle when the phone isn’t in use. With my Note 3 and Galaxy phones the battery would go quickly even when not using the phone.

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        Curious have you thought of the stylo, it has a stylus I thought of getting it, however the v10 came sooner!

  • cloud strife

    I’m torn between this and the Priv. I guess I’ll wait for reviews of both & how easy to root and unlock the bootloaders. Hopefully by that time prices will go down even by a bit. Don’t care about the processor that much since my games aren’t really that graphics intensive.

  • Been using this for about a month now, and its great.

    • LuvMusic

      How’s the battery life?

      • At least 5 or more hours of screen on time with every charge! Great battery.

    • JBLmobileG1

      I Love the LG G4…. this reminds me of a larger upgraded model. The only downside that I have noticed with the G4 is the video camera likes to move around for some reason when zooming in and it tends to get blurry. How does the V10 perform in this area? Thanks in advance for your response.

      • I’ve got several videos up on my YouTube channel, go there and you will find the answers to all you want to know. Just click on my name here, and you will see my channel.

  • jp

    love the phone, but not completely sold on the size. this thing is massive.

    • Jay Holm

      I agree! If it were 5.2 or maybe even 5.5 I might be more open to it, but enough with these massive phones!!! There needs to be a balance between multimedia consumption and mobility.

    • It’s the same as my iPhone 6s Plus, but feels better in hand. Less weight in the hand too.

  • Jay Holm

    I really hate the word “only” when it comes to business! A business should offer choices, and not assume everyone wants the same!

    I just went to to mobile store and ask for this, and they say they won’t be selling this phone and that they haven’t heard any news for this: ( I hope after this they will have it cuz I don’t want the note 5.

    • Steven Cables

      Depending on your store and how cool the people are most won’t tell you anything until release day or preorder day. Try again tomorrow and see what they say.

    • Flowingwind

      The LG V10 won’t be available in the T-Mobile store until Friday, October 30th. Some Reps are clueless when it comes to new smartphone releases. Online orders started October 28th. Phones were still in Stock online at 7:30pm today.

    • Ahmad Rasheen

      I love T-Mobile, but I have noticed that they have a lot of clueless employees, like the information doesn’t seem to roll downhill very well.

  • Chuck E Cheese

    Other than 808 processor this is pretty compelling phone for the price $600. $50 less than an icrap 6s 16gb and $180 less than Note 5 64gb and $250 less than icrap 6s plus 64.

    Plus add in the promo freebies of battery, charger & 200gb mSD.
    The mSD alone is worth at least $200.

    • JBLmobileG1

      I currently have the LG G4… the 808 processor is actually very good. To be honest… its one of the best phones that I have ever used and I have had quite a few different ones over the years. I am very tempted to jump to the V10 just because it’s only a penny more than I am paying now but will have a bigger screen, more ram and memory, and the promo to add to the mix. The plus side too is that I always must buy cases to protect my phones but being that this phone has military grade specs… no case is really needed.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      Chuck E Cheese if I may ask what kind of cases or brands do you buy?

  • mingkee

    I may get v10 and sell my G4 to my bro-in-law because he lost his Note 3.
    Be aware the initial ROM may have same touch and overheat problem like G3 and G4 had, and not to mention root (to get rid of nasty ads).

  • Andrew Morel

    Love the specs, not the size. This phone is a little taller than the 6S Plus, which is ridiculous. I need a normal-sized phone (like my Galaxy S6 Edge), but with a 3000 mah or higher battery. It looks like the Sony Z3 is the only phone like that on T-Mobile that I can JUMP to. I’ve heard bad things about the G4, the battery life and rooting it…

    • I have a rooted G4 with CM 12.1 on it. Works great! Battery life seems MUCH better so far aw well.

  • Bryann Pena

    One question. My remaining EIP is 100 bucks. Can I go to a tmobile store and jump into the lg v10 without paying upfront but still have to pay those 100 bucks and give my s5 in the process?

    • Mottyengel

      Some people don’t realize this but you can have more than one eip at a time. Your account has a certain amount of credit toward eip and until that’s maxed out, you can buy as many phones as you like and pay them all off monthly.

      I think your best bet is to get the v10 through jump on demand (they give you 3 upgrades a year and you dont have to keep paying the full tax upfront) and keep paying off the s5 as a backup.

      • Bryann Pena

        So if i go into a store, i just give them my phone and i will get the lg v10 with 0 down upfront rite?

        • Jimmy James

          I am also positive you have to pay your remaining 100 bucks. When I tried to upgrade online, that is what it told me.

        • Steven Cables

          If you go into a store and jump the only thing you will have to pay is the tax on the LG V10. They will give you an envelope and a shipping label to send your phone back within 30 days. Other than that your $100 will stay on your bill and you will keep paying towards that as well as the V10. You do have the option of paying off the $100 if you wish.

          The only time you’ll have to pay extra is if you’ve had the phone less than 6 months or you still owe more than half the phone’s full amount. (This is all for regular JUMP customers)

        • Bryann Pena

          How much tax would be for the LG V10 in your opinion? I’m trying to get this sweet deal but I still have $100 remaining of my S5.

          Shipping my phone? they don’t take the phone in the T-mobile store where I bought it?

        • Steven Cables

          It depends on the state you’re living in and your tax rate. We pay 0.825 so it would be about $45-50 for me.

          No they don’t take them in store anymore. It allows you to transfer anything you need to from your old phone to your new phone. All you do is package it in the pouch T-Mobile provides, put the label on, and drop it at FedEx.

        • Bryann Pena

          I live in NYC…. so it should be close to 50 bucks ?

          I see thank you :)

        • Steven Cables

          Yes somewhere around that.

          No problem. Have a great day!

        • SimplyDionneMichelle

          Tax is $50.07 in San Antonio Texas, not sure where you are and they should send you labels to mail back.

        • SimplyDionneMichelle

          I know when i jump, I do not put anything down but I always have to pay tax on the phone, I will pay 50.07 tax for LG V10 for Tmobile and give my LG G4 to them

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        I called for that I am glad you mentioned it, I made sure I have enough for iPad Pro which my limit is 2g’s it took me 3 1/2 years to establish this limit! I have heard of larger limits then mine as crazy as that sounds I just wish we had options to pay or EIP the taxes.

  • Paul Garrison

    I would love to get a Nexus 5p, but no Carrier has it so I may go with this.

    • Sarah

      5X? Or 6P? I pre-ordered the 5X from Google Store but I will be returning it this weekend because it is way too sluggish and lags way too much for a brand new phone. Kinda sad given how excited I was about getting a Nexus phone. Perhaps 6P will perform better. Though I’m going for the V10 – maybe next time Nexus.

      • Paul Garrison

        I meant 6p, but the way they are handling the phones are silly.

  • JLM

    Someone mentioned in the another chat. The LG promotion is from October 30th to November 15th. So if you purchase the phone tomorrow, on October 28th, you may not be able to claim the promotion.

    • Slightly Impressed

      On the promotions page, it says you can redeem starting October 28th.

    • Ahmad Rasheen

      The promotion is from the 27th to the 15th you can start redeeming on the 30th according to LG.

  • Bklynman

    MMmm,my Note3,is almost paidoff,I have the 1st Jump.I am not sure I will keep it to get this phone next year after price comes down or just go get The Stylo from Walmart for $179.00,cancel Jump. Also can anyone tell me why Tmobile is still selling F3 slider for over $300 still,when so many other better phones have come and gone? Maybe I will get G Flex 3 which read is coming out next year,not sure if Tmo will get it or not.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      Hay I was wondering did you by any chance spot the stylo for 179 at any point at Walmart because i had of it on the radio station.

      • Bklynman

        Radio station? Not sure what you mean. When go to the Walmart site,
        search for Family Mobile,you will see it for $179.00,along with the Zmax
        $129.00 brand new,and the Lumia 640,for $99.00 But Att.640 is only $59.00. Go figure that one out,but if you do search for Tmoible phones,(on Walmart site)they cost more for some reason. Not sure if this in all states or not.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Thanks for that i meant to say heard on radio my spell correction auto input

        • Bklynman

          You are welcome,

  • Alex Lopez

    Is T-Mobile only going to carry the black variant of this phone or are there plans to carry the white one as well?

    • emcdonald75

      Unfortunately, it seems T-Mobile will only carry the black variant. I wanted the white gold one as well. Shame on them. It would not have hurt T-Mobile to carry both colors. Heck, there is only one model. There are not three models with three different storage units.

      • Tina E

        ATT has black and the blue. White was my favorite, followed by the blue.
        I went with blue, it will be here tomorrow.

      • Flowingwind

        Got the Black T-mobile and ordered a clear case with Rose Gold trim on the sides from Amazon.

    • zp

      Agreed x 1000000.

      I was going to buy tomorrow, but now, I’ll be buying elsewhere.

    • Cris Abreu

      I was going to preorder but the black is so dull! I would love the white or blue!

      • Ahmad Rasheen

        ATT has the blue, the Red Empire has an exclusive on the white.

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    Me will by in store for accessories EIP purpose I love my last purchase now I am ready for my second one in 6 months!

  • zp

    Black only??!! UGH! The worst choice of the entire color set. Sigh.

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    Yes! I am not the only one! I want this too! I listen to fm religiously!

  • GreatNews

    It’s now available! Doesn’t say a ship day it says its back ordered but doesn’t mean anything probably

  • izzybrexx

    Can u get lg’s promotion if you jump? Or does it have to be a full price pay out?

    • Flowingwind

      You just need proof of purchase. Should be a code that is on the LG V10 box or the serial number (ESN). You don’t have to pay it in full to redeem the promotion.

      • izzybrexx

        Awesome. .thanks

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    I know this is way off subject, Does anyone know if the moto watch is sold in stores? I been meaning to pair a smartwatch with a smartphone i just waited to for a smart watch and time is now I was going to buy iWatch, However a bunch of people tell me I need a iPhone….

  • mosquitoguy

    removable battery.. I’m in. I lost hope with samsung. if I wanted a phone like an iphone, I would get an iphone.

  • katie

    Really black of all colors smh i guess ill be waiting for anither phone

    • Ahmad Rasheen

      Not sure why this is such a big deal, most people I see put their phones in protective cases anyways. I’m already looking at an Otterbox Defender for this phone.

      • katie

        But you cant use your finger print scanner with a case because your hand has to touch the stainless steel bars on the side for the scanner to wrk. They said that the phone was made to be used without a case.

    • Flowingwind

      I plan to put this
      LG V10 Case, Verus [Crystal Bumper][Shine Gold] case on the LG V10 or the Black and Rose Gold case on it.

  • Linda Diefenbach

    SO sad!!!…Ordered at 6:30am .. 2 seperate ordered.. since you cannot order 1 order for 2 lines. 2nd order got screwed up. Had to call 3 times. 2 hrs later..finally fixed. And today the 2nd order has shipped and the first order is on backorder until further notice. Called. Dont make sense. 1st order on back order, 2nd shipped, and in stores tomorrow..Y is the 1st order on backorder…MAKE NO SENSE!

  • John Crisp

    I have been calling all the major Tmo Stores in my area for the past 2 days, even visited 2 of them in person and I was told they will not be selling the phones till Friday…

    • thepanttherlady

      From the article:

      “The LG V10 will be available from T-Mobile.com starting Wednesday, October 28, with in-store availability to follow on Friday, October 30.

      • John Crisp

        I read right over that!!!! DOH!!!!!!!!!

        • thepanttherlady

          ;)

          I’m going to see if I can get someone to release it to me tonight. *fingers crossed*

        • John Crisp

          I tried that too with no luck. I was told none was delivered as of yet. My next question was “Will you be able to sell me one as the store opens tomorrow?” They answered yes, which means to me they have them in store but will not sell them.

        • thepanttherlady

          I have a store that will usually release them to me early. There is a new store a little closer to me so I’m going to hit them up first. Sometimes it just depends on whether the system will let them ring the sale up.

          If it’s a no-go, I’ll just have them hold one out for me until I can get there after work.

        • John Crisp

          by no means am I gonna give up on getting one tonight….LOL! I am going to stop at 1 more store on my way home from work. They already have my name and # and will call me but I have been waiting for this phone since it was announced. I cannot stand my S6 Edge Plus, which I had less than a month…

        • thepanttherlady

          Good luck!!

          I try to utilize one store when I do buy devices directly from T-Mobile so they treat me a bit better. :) I’ve also gone on campaigns before where I call every single store in my area until I find a manager that will do it. Someone’s gotta give! LOL

        • John Crisp

          I am glad to see that I am not the only one that does the same thing. I am actually doing a segment on youtube about doing night photography on cell phones. I started with the LG G4, then went to the S6 Edge Plus and up next the V10!!! I CANNOT WAIT TO GET THIS PHONE! LOL!

        • thepanttherlady

          My store has them and the manager said she’d sell it to me but the system wouidnt allow it. She set one aside for me. Interestingly enough, she said they’d gotten many calls from other people asking if they could get it tonight but not one other person asked for them to hold it. Tomorrow it is. :)

        • After calling 4 stores I got mine today. I had to goto the “Corporate” store in the city because no other store had it! I visited one store this morning thinking Ill be the first one there, and I was, but they did not have the phone yet. Went back @ 2:30 and still no phone but was able to find one. And I thought we were gonna get those cool headphones! :(((((((((((

        • thepanttherlady

          My store didn’t get the shipment they were supposed to today. They told me of another location they called before I arrived that had them but I told them I’d wait. I like to give my business to places that treat me good and they definitely have.

          P.S. didn’t realize last night they didn’t have the actual phone. When she said she’d set one aside, I took it literally. Lol

        • oh Dang! That sux! I really really could not wait! This phone is fantastic at night photography!!!!!!!!!!! I am so in LOVE with it!!!!

        • Flowingwind

          Yes!!! First I printed the LG V10 EIP from the email T-Mobile sent me, took a picture and uploaded it to the LG V10 promotion page. I received the email with my actual T-Mobile receipt today. I decided to screenshot it and send that to LG in addition to the box photo and EIP receipt. LG said the screenshot was viable for the promotion.

    • Flowingwind

      My LG V10 was delivered yesterday. Bought it over the phone 7:30 am on October 28th chose next day Air shipping. It was delivered 4:40 pm but I already left for work at 4:30 pm. My wife has the phone at the house. I won’t be able to set it up until 7 am (getting off 6:30 doing 13 hours USPS). The LG V10 promotion will be available to redeem at that time.

  • Victoriant1

    Question, I’d buy my phone v10 outright full price and I have tmobile. If Im paying for it all upfront can’t I buy it from any carrier so I get the color I want. Anyone have any feedback

    • Alejandro Rodriguez

      Yes you can buy it from Verizon or AT&T. The verizon will be unlocked for tmobile. ATT will require unlock code first. But since you are paying full price unlock is free through att unlock page.
      Go ahead no problems here.

  • katie

    Pretty cases but the fp scanner wont wrk with a case on

  • Scott

    What’s the battery life on this one? Guessing that if LG is offering a deal, with an extra battery, then you’ll need it quite often??????

    • Flowingwind

      I am getting 13 to 14 hours. Streaming Bluetooth for an hour, one hour and a half of Mobile Hotspot, notifications on all day, Internet use around two hours. I turn Location off when I don’t need it. Using TSF Launcher display at 51%.

      My LG 200 GB microSD card, battery and charger status changed to awaiting shipping. Don’t really need the extra battery now.
