T-Mobile LG V20 pricing revealed as pre-orders get underway

lgv20pairtmo

After announcing its LG V20 launch date earlier in October, T-Mobile today kicked off pre-orders for the new Android flagship.

The LG V20 is available for pre-order at a price of $49.99 down and $30 per month for 24 months. If you’d prefer to buy the V20 using JUMP! On Demand, expect to pony up $0 down and $34 per month for 18 months. Full retail price for T-Mobile’s V20 is set at $769.99.

If you’d like to make that pricing a bit lower, you can trade in a smartphone. T-Mobile will give at least a $200 credit when customers trade in any working 4G smartphone. This offer is available for a limited time.

LG V20 buyers can also get a free pair of Beoplay H3 headphones worth $149. Like the trade-in offer, this gift is available for a limited time.

Finally, T-Mobile is running a Tablet on Us promo with the LG V20 that’ll give you an LG G Pad 8.0 or LG G Pad F 8.0 free with a 24-month finance agreement when you buy the V20. A postpaid phone plan and 1GB or higher mobile internet plan are required for the free tablet.

The LG V20 will be in T-Mobile stores on October 28. The flagship Android 7.0 phone comes with a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 display and a secondary 160×1040 display above that, 16-megapixel standard and 8-megapixel wide angle cameras on its rear, a Quad DAC for improved audio, Snapdragon 820, and 4GB of RAM. It’s got 64GB of built-in storage and a microSD slot for adding more storage, and a removable 3,200mAh battery.

Also of note is that the LG V20 is the first T-Mobile phone to support AWS-3 spectrum, aka LTE band 66. T-Mo will use this spectrum to continue building out its 4G LTE network.

As he has with other recent flagship smartphone releases, T-Mobile product guy @Askdes has put together a special unboxing video to celebrate the arrival of the LG V20. The video was shot using the LG V20 and is in the spirit of the Halloween season. You can check it out below.

    This is a great deal. While some will say this is too much for an LG phone, I’m willing to pay this much on Jump On Demand (wouldn’t do it without Jump, I would rather buy one of the great $400 phones in that case) because they are the one company that are still producing phones with everything I love. Expandable memory, removable battery, IR transmitter, metal body (no glass back to be more specific), dual speakers, headphone jack and large base memory. Other phones are prettier but who cares when I always put a case on my phone and they are missing at least some of these features? I just wish it was an AMOLED display :(.
    Do you have to get an internet plan for the tablet?
    Update: I just looked it up. You need a minium 1GB data plan for the tablet. That means I won’t be getting it since I’ll basically have to spend at least $240 (24 months of $10 data plan) to get it, and I can get a real good tablet for less than that. The tablets eligible for the promotion are the LG G Pad X 8.0 or LG G Pad F 8.0, which can be found for $120 to $160 on Amazon, maybe less if you look more.

    • Verizonthunder

      Yes

    • Chimphappyhour

      Yes, the “data plan” financing has been verified. Not worth it.

    • noh1bvisas

      YIKES! fail on the tablet. i have a dell (dude) tablet that i got for like $40, so a tablet doesn’t interest me.

  • Verizonthunder

    I’ll wait for someone to sell on Swappa for way less

  • pda96

    A king’s ransom, indeed. Good luck to LG.

    • Acdc1a

      $200 off with any trade in brings the price to $569. That’s not bad.

      • dtam

        I can’t believe I’m saying this but I miss when flagship phones were $650…

        • piz

          “Backorder” status is given to all pre-order devices before they’re launched. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have any. Every iPhone 7 preorder we did in retail stores said the same exact thing.

        • Chimphappyhour

          Except some people have shipping within the week while others have a very vague sometime between middle of November and December.

        • Acdc1a

          I’m over flagships. You can get great phones for $400 and perfectly serviceable phones for $150.

        • dtam

          pretty much…or get last years flagships

        • Acdc1a

          Yeah, the Mrs. is longing for the S6 Edge plus. Refurb is $350 but I’m worried about no expandable storage.

        • dtam

          fwiw, I’m quite happy with my s7 edge that i bought bogo with free vr and free netflix. overall, the edge function is more annoying than it’s worth but the extra battery size persuaded me. maybe get her an s7e?

        • Jose

          650 for a nexus 6p 128gb very well worth it.

        • dtam

          That’s last year’s model now, should be sub $500

  • bill evans

    Phone already on Backorder

  • Chimphappyhour

    Someone over at XDA said that it is already sold out and on backorder. LG, you had one job. How many did you bring in? 5?!?

    • noh1bvisas

      they only announced the release SEVEN weeks ago. cut them some slack. (sarc)

  • Omar Lozada

    I just place my order and they told me it is on back order already, delivery between 11/15/16 to 12/15/16, I hope is faster that that.
    But I am a little confused, they told me that the promotion for the Beoplay H3 headphones is available only to costumer that BUY the phone not LEASE it, that means NO for JOD costumers…I hope they are wrong, anybody knows if that is true.
    Thanks.

    • Chimphappyhour

      Ouch!

    • Frankenstu

      It is wrong. You can finance the phone and get the offer. Nothing about full purchase.

      http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v20/promo/t-mobile

      Fine Print: “Headphones: LG V20 purchase required. Redeem at http://www.lgv20launchpromo.com by 12/2/16. Must be active and in good standing when processed; allow 6 weeks. Limit 1 /person/device. LG Electronics reserves its rights. Void where prohibited or restricted by law.”

      • Chimphappyhour

        Phone has to be active by then? Going to be really hard for a lot of us to do if they’re backordered well into December according to the OP.

    • bruce

      Me to, and if their in the stores on the 28th we can cancel our order at no charge

      • bruce

        Just got this text from tmobile
        Free T-Mobile Msg: Your T-Mobile order #S01931 is confirmed and expected to ship between 10/17/2016 and 10/24/2016. We’ll text you a tracking number once it ships. Visit http://t-mo.co/tmo_check_order f

    • That’s now true, once you get the phone & you have your receipt, you can submit a claim for the promo

    • Steve Hester

      I suspect that is wrong. When items are not yet released (preorder) the dates jump around. I ordered about the time you did (9AM Central) and my text says 10-17 – -10-24 (and I fully expect it to change to 10-28, and then arrive on the 26th or 27th, from previous experience).

  • joemail

    what does any 4G phone mean exactly?
    can you buy a junky one (suggestions if so) and trade that in for $200 or is the term for up to $200 for something like a nexus 6P?

    Thanks

    • Acdc1a

      Seems to me that you can buy a $20 throwaway from eBay and get $200 for it as it says, “At least $200.”

    • Chimphappyhour

      Minimum trade in value is $200. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus that I’m going to trade in. (I had to Google the spec though as I couldn’t remember if it was or wasn’t.) If you happen to have something worth more than $200 trade in (good luck with that) then they mail you a check for the difference.

    • noh1bvisas

      i’m trying to find the fine print. all i can find is “the find my phone” must be turned off. there has to be a catch.

    • Any 4G phone, T Mobile will give you there trade in value, and LG will send check for the difference to make $200. I’m giving my beloved Note 3, T Mobile only gives $54, but LG will give the remaining $166 in something like a rebate check. I chatted with an online rep 1st, then called, the rep on the phone said it was for new customers only, then I guess she saw something or someone told her, it was for all

      • Chimphappyhour

        There’s some sort of promotions portion of the T-mobile website that you go to but I couldn’t find anything that worked for me.

    • Chimphappyhour

      Just came back from the store and they have a database they look your phone up on. For some reason, the Galaxy Nexus wasn’t in there so I couldn’t use it. Instead I had to use my Nexus 6. Even then, it’s only worth $60 and the other $140 actually comes by check from LG via some special webpage. :/

      • noh1bvisas

        for 200 bucks, i’d want to know exactly why it isn’t eligible. did they have any display models?

        • Chimphappyhour

          No display model in the store I went to. Sounds like they’re still waiting for them. If you really want to see one now, some AT&T stores have live models. (Others have dummy phones.)

      • gmo8492

        So they completed your trade in when you went to the store?

        • Chimphappyhour

          They do “deferred trade in”. They take the information for the phone you are trading in. You walk out with your current phone. When the new one arrives, you ship the one you gave them the information for back.

    • GersonT1000

      If we go by all the major carriers’ language, a phone that does 3G HSPA+ should be considered a 4G phone, since 4G is what they marketed them as, right? But I’m sure in this case that won’t count because it doesn’t help them, and they’ll ask for a 4G LTE phone lol.

  • JOSH!

    I thought this would be a decent substitute for my Note 7 I just returned but the battery just doesn’t last long enough. It’s rated about half of what the note 7 was and s7 edge is. unfortunate for me i guess

    • noh1bvisas

      v20 probably won’t explode on you. where are you seeing the battery rating? 3200 mah on the v20 vs. 3500 mah on the note 7.

    • Bradley Karas

      How do you know? Phone isn’t even out yet

    • gmo8492

      I heard that it gets at least 4 and a half hours of screen on time with heavy usage. The Note 7 at most can get 5 hours of SOT based on what I’ve seen on XDA.

      • Rob

        4 1/2 hours?! No thanks, I’ll keep the 6 1/2 on my HTC 10. Yikes!

        • gmo8492

          It helps to get an extra battery that you can swap out in a second, and it should last a whole day on moderate use. The SOT was also on a preproduction unit that had heavy gaming/multimedia usage. I think it can pull off 5 hours easy. I like the HTC 10, but Tmo gave it the ax.

        • Rob

          Unfortunately I do not and have never had the patience to take apart my case to replace the battery in a phone. And while T-Mobile gave the phone the axe, the HTC 10 is still getting Nougat and of course you can always convert it to the US unlocked SKU and get updates faster than any carrier. I have to charge my 10 twice a day because I don’t use my laptop or my desktop anymore, just my phone, so going down in battery again is just not something I can do.

        • wright1bby

          A lg battery coffin and an instant 100% charge for 15 seconds of work is awesome. I don’t see where that requires patience.
          Patience is keeping a phone plugged in to charge….

        • Rob

          Takes longer than that. I’d have to shut down the phone, take off the case, remove the battery, put the new battery in, power the phone back on, then spend time opening up all my apps I use again on top of it. About a 5-10 minute affair versus grabbing my Type-C cable off the floor and plugging it into my device for 1hr20m or so.

  • Bradley Karas

    Ordered this morning via twitter….much easier to use vs calling or online. And its a level one tech support agent too!

    • bill evans

      Good info. I never knew that you could use twitter to order phones

      • Bradley Karas

        You can use Twitter for anything…and it’s a level 1 tech! I don’t even bother calling anymore

    • Facebook too, that’s how I order the Note 7

  • Gerard Bathan

    No extra charging case and battery for this one?! What happen LG! No sense of having a removable battery if you don’t giveaway a free one. I had those free stuff from my V10 and G5.

    • noh1bvisas

      yeah, i would’ve rather had an extra battery and/or SD card instead of the tablet and headphones.

    • I never got the charging cradle & extra battery with my V10, said it was delivered, but never got it

  • tranceformer978

    Alright, time to find a used 4G phone.

    • wright1bby

      bought a new one at walmart for $30 last week….

  • Josue D. de Leon Sustache

    Tried to pre order on store. They said the pre orders are ship-to-home only, and first I have to return my N7. What am I supposed to use meanwhile? And ship to home? I have friends still waiting on the iPhone 7 to arrived and they pre ordered the first day it was announced. Even on the Note 7, I know people who pre ordered to get ship to home, and never got the phone cause by the time it was supposed to ship, the first recall was announced. Can I just, you know, pay something to hold it, so I can pick it up on Friday, October 28 as I get out of work, on my way home? You know, like video game on GS?… I feel old.

    • Vlad

      I’m in the same boat…
      Holding on Note 7, till I can buy V20.
      Hopefully it will be available in the store on 28th after my work.
      So I can replace my Note 7.

      • Josue D. de Leon Sustache

        I just hope it’s widely available as was the Note 7 on release. And the headphones too.

        • Vlad

          Well hopefully will be plenty…
          LG would be so stupid not to produce more phones knowing that so many people returned note 7 and looking for similar replacement

        • omg_imasian

          you don’t get the headphones in store, just like the Samsung pre-order gifts. you have to go their website and put in the imei and stuff and wait for them to ship it to you.

    • SurvivingSunnyvale

      “What am I supposed to use meanwhile?”

      Use your backup phone.

      You DO have a backup phone, right?

      • Josue D. de Leon Sustache

        Not anymore no. My fiance once again has taken possession of my old phone. My only back up is this 20k mah Samsung fast charging battery, which is just awesome. Life was pretty, till the second recall.

    • Call 611 and order. Rep told me to keep my Note 7 until I get the V20, then take it back to store. That was the 1st question I asked, “Can I pre order the V20 while I still have my Note 7?” She said yes, and my order has been completely with me still have my Note 7

      • Josue D. de Leon Sustache

        Really?? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. On Puerto Rico, these T-Mobile stores make things up. I called a second store, and at first they didn’t know anything. Then said yes, but the pre order stars on Oct 19th. I said it was today, they even posted on FB. Then was told come to the store on Oct 28 were should be a lot available anyway. That maybe true. LG just doesn’t have the star power on Samsung, much less Apple, even if their phones are sometimes better

    • Chimphappyhour

      Weird. I just walked into the store and they take the information. You only send the trade in phone when the new one arrives. Even then, you have 30 days to do so.

  • tranceformer978

    T-Mobile still defines their HSPA+ network as 4G, so does the trade in phone need to have LTE?

    • Chimphappyhour

      LTE I do believe. But even that isn’t a guarantee that they will take it.

  • TheRealKingSen

    Almost $800 for a LG phone. Lol

    • With all the promos, nowhere near that. It’s still better than the $830 AT&T is charging

  • mreveryphone

    Will hold on to my Note 7 until it’s released in the stores… No more pre-ordering for me. I’m strictly sticking to buying in the store from now on. With the cost of the Note 7 looks like I’ll be getting money back if I exchange for the V20…

    • noh1bvisas

          Damn lol… I’m not doing that again.. I could see them screwing up my pre-order of the V20 with the returning of my note 7 and trying to credit it all lol… I’m going to go to the store on release date and have them do it all there… If I decide I like it??

        • n910

          Good thing about t-mobile screw ups is quite frequently one end ups
          getting more when they eventually fix their omission… Yes, it may take
          some time or couple of calls, but often it’s compensated with additional inconvenience credit.. at least, can’t recall any incident, which wasn’t resoled to my satisfaction…

        • mreveryphone

          Yeah… They offered me a free vr(the new black one) for messing everything up… Now it’s going to be useless until the s8 comes out… Go figure…

    They wouldn’t let me trade in my galaxy nexus, which is 4G. So I’m having to give up my Nexus 6.

      Sure they will. Just move it up the food chain. They’re pretty clear that it’s any 4G phone.

      • gmo8492

        You think they will let me trade a beat up but still working Atrix 2 from At&t.

        • Acdc1a

          I have to assume so though it was only a HSPA phone and it wasn’t T-Mobile advertising it as a 4G phone. I’d sure give it an effort.

        • gmo8492

          Yeah, I’ll try to do this when I get back home. I still have my OnePlus One, but I wouldn’t want to trade that in since I still like it.

    “T-Mobile currently has no offers available. Please check back soon!”

    • Chimphappyhour

      Yeah, can’t get that and can’t seem to get the promotion page for the rest of my trade-in value. I suspect it won’t go live until the 28th.

    • Chatty_techie
  • PiCASSiMO

    Started the online purchase…

    $770 x 10% taxes (Chicago, IL) = $847 + $7 shipping = $854 – $200 rebate = $654.00

    Wished the taxes were lumped in the 24-month payments, but the state and local governments wants their money immediately. So in my case, $77 in taxes and $7 shipping, added another $84 to the hefty $770 price.

    The $200 rebate will help. Also if I can sell the headphones for at least $100 on eBay, bringing the overall cost to about $554.00.

    • Raymond Baez

      was the $200 Taken of the price or is it monthly bill credits?

      • Croq

        When I called in, they said it will be sent as a check.

      • PiCASSiMO

        Haven’t completed the order… but I assume it will be check provided to me within 8-weeks.

    • gmo8492

      I plan to do the same, but how did you get the rebate? I mean what did you trade in.

    • noh1bvisas

      when i was an unboxing video, the headphones were not in the retail packaging.

  • Joe

    I got a 10/17-10/24 shipment text. Hope to have 4 days early. Will the headphones come with it or so I need to take action somewhere else to get them? I passed on the “free” tablet.

      We have to wait for some mythical webpage or link to go live. It’s not live yet. Probably not until the official release date. (In other words, no, they will not be in the box with the phone.)

    • Chatty_techie

      I believe you register your device by going to this link to receive your headphones:
      http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v20/promo

  • AngryBadger

    wait, where is the list of eligible models? because i have a droid bionic collecting dust… lol… it does 4G…

    • Chimphappyhour

      There is no external list. The reps look up your device and determine if it is eligible or not.

      • AngryBadger

        ok thanks. well, hope it pops up. after the note 7 fiasco, I have been stuck with my 32GB note 5 and haven’t seen any 64GB ones for sale (do not want to buy new, retail price after it being ‘old’ now).

      • Rob

        Hmm… I wonder if they’d take my LG Leon. Probably not lol

    • Mark Thomas

      I have my very old note2… wonder if they’ll honor that with JUMP on demand though

      • J.J.

        Just preordered over the phone. they said no only eip☹️

        • Mark Thomas

          no surprise… but thanks for the reply

        • noh1bvisas

          JOD already gets a pretty good deal. i don’t know if they are still offering it, but i’m going to look into it.

      • Bradley Karas

        JOD is no longer offered

        • Mark Thomas

          maybe you are talking about with the deal… but it’s right in the article… “If you’d prefer to buy the V20 using JUMP! On Demand, expect to pony up $0 down and $34 per month for 18 months”

        • Bradley Karas

          That’s for customers already on JOD…but they eliminated that program from what I recall

        • Mark Thomas

          I’m on it already so :)

        • Bradley Karas

          Oh haha well…

  • Jess

    Hmmm, if I knew for sure Cincinnati will be lit up with B66 LTE upon launch of this device I’d snatch one. But I’m liking my 4×4 Mimo enbaled S7E.

  • Rob

    Does T-Mobile even have an AWS-3 license in Denver? If not, I’m just going to keep my HTC 10 which works great and will have Nougat very soon, possibly before the V20 even launches. The V20 is pretty much a sidegrade for me other than the larger screen.

  • JB

    Hmmm I still have a sidekick 4G. I wonder if that would be good for the $200 promo? If it is, I’ll just return my Note7 (that’s been off and waiting to see how what I was going to trade it for). Cancel my JOD on it and get the V20 on EIP.

    • FILA

      keep it for another 20 years, it’ll be worth more. I wish they came back out with the sidekick. Need to have the option for people

  • Genecio

    I did the JUMP upgrade from my s7 edge which was already paid off. So my credit was $228. Do I still get the $200 check?

    • noh1bvisas

      EIP only.

  • Android_God

    $769.99?!?!?! LOL

    • vplaza

      $569 if you factor in the $200 minimum credit. If so, that’s just $70 more than the current prices for the V10 and G5.

    • noh1bvisas

      not as funny as 900 for a bezel xl.

    • a d00d

      Don’t forget the Death Star wants a hundred more than that! Have to make up for the missing overage fees somewhere, I suppose…

  • Koolme666

    Damn, I was hoping it wouldn’t be too expensive. Oh well I guess the axon mini it is. I’m going to start counting my quarters

  • Chimphappyhour

    Some people seem to be getting shipping notices already but there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to who is getting them. I’ve seen people who ordered after me say they’re getting them.

    On a separate note, T-Mobile customer service has gone really downhill from the last time I’ve used them. Uncarrier my rear quarters. Their customer service is where Sprint’s was when I left them over a decade ago.

    • Croq

      Based on how they did the Note 7 pre orders, I wouldn’t stress too much. There didn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason to who got those notices, and despite the early shipping notices, the phones really didn’t show up early.

      • Chimphappyhour

        People have V20s in hand as of right now from T-Mobile. Meanwhile, mine is “Still processing” with the 611 people saying mine will ship Nov 8th. That’s right, Nov 8th.

        • Croq

          I actually got mine yesterday. I hope yours shows up soon.

        • Chimphappyhour

          Still nothing. Having to pull someone from the corporate office in to look into what is wrong with my order since all the reps just want to shrug their shoulders.

    • Bradley Karas

      Use Twitter…much easier and better service and you get connected directly to level 1 techs. I ordered my phone thru them

      • Chimphappyhour

        I was also told FB uses the same people but it has been the most worthless experience in my life. T-mobile should be ashamed calling it customer service.

  • Genecio

    UPDATE: I spoke to T-mobile CS, and since my s7 edge had a zero EIP balance, I will receive a $228 credit as a trade in to be applied as bill credits or towards the remaining EIP for the LG V20. Additionally, I will receive $200 in bill credits (over the next 24 months)= $8.33/month. Plus I can get the free headphones. Oh and my T-mobile Tuesdays T-shirt came today!!!! #WINNING, #MAGENTA

    • Enrique Escobar

      so you’re saying that you will only be paying $322 +tax???

      • Genecio

        Basically, I feel like I virtually stole this V20 from T-Mobile….Lol

        • Rob

          Something sounds fishy about that. I’d get that verified by a supervisor… And record the call. Wouldn’t want a nasty surprise and have no recourse. If your EIP was already paid off, you should just be eligible for the trade-in value.

        • DILAW IDDAHLA

          I agree and I would do the same. What doesn’t make sense is they told him he gets $228 towards his Galaxy S7 and LG will give him or he will get an additional $200. Where the other guy who posted T-Mobile will give him $54 for his Note 3 will get $146 from LG ($200 – $54). If he would’ve said “T-Mobile is giving me $54 for my Note 3 PLUS I am getting an additional $200, then I would believe it.

        • Rob

          Yeah my understanding is the trade in offer is for devices not on EIP, it doesn’t stack on top of any trade in, it replaces it. So you trade a phone worth 20 bucks to T-Mobile and LG pays the other 180. If your trade in exceeds 200 bucks, you get your trade in value only. If you trade in a phone on EIP, it works as usual. Otherwise they might as well just knock 200 bucks off the price of the phone and save all the crap in the middle.

    • So you’re getting $428 for your S7 Edge? I’d probably would have put it on ebay, would get a little more

      • Genecio

        This is true. I just didn’t want to go through the hasell. I also noticed ever since the second recall and eventual cancellation of the Note 7, Samsung Galaxy Smartphone values have dropped quite a bit.

        • True, but no S7 has caught fire. I was thinking about putting this Note 7 on ebay and trying to make a profit, people are still trying to buy it. It’s 1 in there that’s already up to $760, with some days left on the auction, haha. I probably won’t though

        • Hoggles

          A few S7’s have burst into flames. Just a couple though.

    • a d00d

      Funny you say that, I got my TMo Tuesday shirt today (well, yesterday, now) as well! UPS tracking shows it shipped from West Sacramento though the label says Rancho Cordova–I wonder who REALLY runs that warehouse?…

      Anyway, this is the first I’ve heard of the trade-in for ANY phone. Before it was just the Apple or high-end Samsungs. If so, and it’s LTE-only, I may trade in my Galaxy Note II; otherwise something older. I’ll definitely be calling tomorrow to get the details!

      • It says it on the website. When I called the rep said it was only for new customers, then I guess it was popping up while we were actually doing the order, and she was like “I’m sorry, you can get the $200 credit for any 4G phone” I told her her which phone I wanted to trade and she said screen can’t be cracked, chipped, or have any leaks; no water damage and it has to be functional. I bought it through EIP from them, so she was able to pull up the phone on her end

  • bill evans

    Is it a check or bill credit for device trade in?

    • If T Mobile doesn’t value your trade in up to $200, LG will send you a check for the difference. That’s what I was told. I’m giving up my backup Note 3, which TMo only values at $54,smh, so LG will send me a check for $146 in 4-8 weeks. If they don’t, I want my Note 3 back, definitely not worth giving up for $54 haha

  • wright1bby

    That $30 dollar on clearance ZTE 4g phone I bought last week to get me through until I figured out what I wanted after my note 4 screen quit turning on sure is looking like a good investment

  • Omar Lozada

    I just got my shipping confirmation…I wish TMO offered the classic 2 day UPS shipping as always instead of this 10 day UPS bs.
    Let’s see how fast it will be in my hands.

    • Hoggles

      They do offer free “overnight” with this, as with all flagship releases. I got it free…as normal.

      Not sure why some of guys are saying you didn’t get overnight? You spoke to the wrong rep.

      • Chimphappyhour

        My order quite clearly says 7 day ground shipping…. and still processing. At this rate, I won’t get it until after launch.

  • Clips4

    Pre-ordered mine tonight.

  • bruce

    Just got a email, mine just shipped

  • Carlos Quintanilla

    I have a lg stylo that still works but the digitizer is cracked. Does anyone know if they will still accept this as a valid trade in for the $200. Oh and its from cricket.
    Thanks

    • DILAW IDDAHLA

      no, the trade in device might not be damaged

      • Carlos Quintanilla

        Oh well guess its time to start digging into the kids stuff to see if there is one in there somewhere that isn’t broken. Thanks

  • Croq

    UPS is showing mine as being out for delivery!

    • Bradley Karas

      Impossible

      • Chimphappyhour

        Not impossible. XDA has quite a few people with boxes in hand.

        • Bradley Karas

          Mine just changed I’ll get it tomorrow

        • Chimphappyhour

          You’re lucky

    • Croq

      My V20 was delivered yesterday! I hope everyone gets theirs soon…

  • I have to say, T Mobile is always on top of pre-orders, mines has shipped already! I paid for 3 day. Excited. I know somebody who is still waiting for her pre-ordered iphone 7, on Sprint

  • JayBEE

    Just ordered mine over the phone and was able to switch to JOD! from Jump!. I’ll return my Note 7 when the V20 arrives.

    • Rob

      How the hell did they let you switch to JOD with an outstanding EIP? They told me I had to pay off my phone in full before I could switch to JOD.

      • JayBEE

        I suspect I was luck and talked to a rep that knew what they were doing. Perhaps you should ask to speak to a manager.

        • Rob

          Its probably because of the Note 7. They’re making all kinds of exceptions to keep from inconveniencing customers even more.

  • JOHN P

    $750+ for a LG Phone?

    ..Not in this lifetime.

    • noh1bvisas

      549 with a trade-in, which is what most people are taking advantage of.

      • JOHN P

        I’ll change it then….$549 for a LG Phone?

        Not in this lifetime

        I do like my LG Washer & Dryer set though.

    • gmo8492

      Well the $800 fire catching Note 7 was another matter entirely right?

      • JOHN P

        I’ve never had a Note, fire edition or non fire edition, but I have had an LG.

        So when I refer to LG as “not in this lifetime” I am referring to my lifetime and not anyone else’s

    • favosys

      Maybe you should try an LG phone before you open your mouth. After having the Note 2 and then the Note 3 I finally got the Note 4 and was so disappointed the brand new phone was as slow and annoying as the year old Note 3. It also had additional problems like the 3.5 jack not working correctly. So I went right back and got the LG G3… AMAZING PHONE, then I got the G4 EVEN BETTER and then the G5 which was also amazing but had some GPS problems so I had to change it for a Galaxy S7 which I hate soooo much, it is so slow and annoying with all the Samsung crap that I despise. I will happily pay $770 for the V20 with my free tablet and free earphones and hope to never again get near a SAmsung phone.

      • JOHN P

        Maybe you need to read the entire thread before you open your mouth and say I need to try an LG Phone

        Thank you very much

  • Gabe Robiatti

    Ordered mine yesterday, Just got the shipping notification… Can’t wait to take this iphone 7 plus back. Don’t get me wrong it’s a really nice phone but IOS feels like its stuck in Kids Mode.

    • noh1bvisas

      LOL. it IS stuck in kids mode, but not everyone likes messing with stuff.

      once i got the basic set-up done i haven’t altered my g3, besides installing apps and changing the wallpaper now and then.

  • noh1bvisas

    does anyone know if the v20 is compatible with tmo’s new 256QAM service? I don’t see band66 support listed in the specs, either.

    • Bradley Karas

      All snapdragon 820 phones are

  • Deswaga

    Well I got confirmation email that my V20 has been sent and on its way.. And I have a tracking number. #TMobile #LG #Winning!!

    • Geoffrey

      When did you place your order?

      • Deswaga

        I placed my order about 1130 est but didnt sign the agreement emails until 230 pm. But my phone is arriving 10/21/2016

  • bill evans

    V 20 scheduled to be delivered this Friday

  • Omar Lozada

    Mine will be delivered Thursday, “early” delivery I guess.

  • Vlad

    Anyone knows,
    If I currently have Note 7 on JOD
    Do I need to return it first before I can pre-order V20 on jump on demand?

    • Clips4

      Yes, you would need to return your Note 7 first before you can pre-order the V20. It is two separate transactions. They will have to back out your Note 7 to remove the upgrade and then re-instate the upgrade towards the V20.

      • Corey Smith

        I have JOD. I have a Note 7, didn’t return it to the store yet and just pre-ordered my V20. I got the EIP, signed it and got the confirmation. I don’t think you have to return your Note 7. I think they are making special arrangements for Note 7 customers.

        • Vlad

          That’s different, you have eip, basically you bought it.
          I was asking about JOD
          So can’t have 2 jumps on same phone line.

        • Corey Smith

          No, I have JOD. I signed a JUMP! ON DEMAND LEASE AGREEMENT.

        • Vlad

          OK, that’s strange
          Same line?
          In the store or through customer care?
          Did you told when you placed order that you jumping from note 7 and want to pre-order V20?

        • Corey Smith

          Vlad, I tried to post a pic of my Lease Agreement, but I can’t post a picture here. I promise, it’s JOD. I did it over the phone on the same line as the Note 7. I used to work for T-Mobile for years so I know the difference. I called, explained what I wanted to do and she just asked if I would be returning the Note 7 to the store. I said I would once I receive the V20. I did the same then when I pre-ordered the Note 7. I had an S7 Edge on JOD and pre-ordered Note 7 then returned S7 Edge in store after I received the Note 7. I just got off the phone within the hour, and came here to see if anyone got shipping notifications yet. I got the Note 7 confirmation about 5 days before it actually shipped so I am not going to get my hopes up on getting it early.

        • Vlad

          Thanks, will try to do order on my way home at the store.
          Hoping to receive new phone sooner then store release, so I can return note 7 and receive money back

        • Off Topic – JOD

          By the way, how do you like the JOD advantages and/or disadvantages? It is truly worth it? Simply said, I was thinking about ending my JOD…

        • Vlad

          It’s worth it, basically same reasoning as leasing a car.
          But better.
          I basically get newest Samsung every 6 months.
          Unfortunate, note 7 was perfect. Want to try lg v20, looks really nice, till s8 comes out in spring

        • Off Topic

          Also, thank you for the feedback!

        • Corey Smith

          If you like to get the newest phones on a regular basis, it works great. I like getting new “toys” so it’s perfect for me. If you are the type of person that keeps a device 18 months or longer, then it might not be for you. Plus we get truly $0 down instead of paying taxes on an $800 device.

        • Off Topic

          Thank you for the feedback…!!

      • Vlad

        Thanks, then I guess I must wait for store availability, then I can only return note 7 and buy v20

    • Corey Smith

      I have JOD. I have a Note 7, didn’t return it to the store yet and just pre-ordered my V20. I got the EIP, signed it and got the confirmation. I don’t think you have to return your Note 7. I think they are making special arrangements for Note 7 customers.

      • Corey Smith

        Vlad, I tried to post a pic of my Lease Agreement, but I can’t post a picture here. I promise, it’s JOD. I used to work for T-Mobile for years so I know the difference. I called, explained what I wanted to do and she just asked if I would be returning the Note 7 to the store. I said I would once I receive the V20. I did the same then when I pre-ordered the Note 7. I had an S7 Edge on JOD and pre-ordered Note 7 then returned S7 Edge in store after I received the Note 7.

    • Cesar Tellez

      I pre-ordered two V20 on my JOD plan and was able to do that we me still keeping both Note7 devices. Once i received the V20 I must return the Note7 to a Tmobile store. But worked for me and from the email confirmation from Tmobile, It looks like it will be delivered before the 28th launch date.

      • Vlad

        Thanks for info
        Sounds really good
        Will try to do pre-order today after work.
        Have T-Mobile store on my way home

      • Morton H

        I wish surely miss my note 7 damn…. I really dont like the s7 edge much,,, I need 5.7 screen size minimum. The pixel xl is a good option I dont care about the price all flagships are close in pricing. But no sd card slot google? or at least bump it up to 64GB. The v10 was a great phone cant wait to get the v20 this week

    • Morton H

      Yes you will need to return it first then do a new JOD

      • Vlad

        I’m getting opposite information from the others

        • Morton H

          Then just call for your own knowledge then.. So it stops all of that

        • Vlad

          I’m guessing you tried already?
          Phone is out of stock already
          So have to wait for store release, maybe better luck there

      • mike reiff

        i have note 7( my third one btw) made 4 calls to tmobile on monday nite got reps that had no clue what to do finally got a super nice rep , the work around was just having her add a line , once the phone is in hands then take to store and cancel the new line and do the JOD for the replacement note 7 with the shipped v20 , ordered last nite got shipping confirmation today for the v20 overnite with ups and the free LG pad , took 4 phone calls to figure it out , its really a luck of the draw if you get a rep that really understands what to do

    • JayBEE

      Today, I was able to pre-order the V20 and switch to JOD! from Jump! without first returning my Note 7. I told the rep up front I could not return my Note 7 as I would be without a phone and they acknowledged and proceeding with processing my order. Ask to speak to a manager if necessary.

  • Chimphappyhour

    Those who have theirs in hand as of today or have shipping notices already, what time and day did you order yours? I ordered at 1030 CDT and still have nothing.

    • osubeavs

      I ordered mine at 2:09am PST Monday

  • Chimphappyhour

    And just verified with the second Tmo rep that they are out of V20s and backordered until Nov 8th! I’m so peeved right now! I know for a fact that I had my order in before some people who are getting theirs today.

    • Vlad

      And I just wanted to order it today
      Guess better off buying it in the store.
      Why start pre-order 2 weeks before release date with such small inventory.
      Guess LG does not want so many samsung customers that are just looking to buy some phone.

      • Clips4

        I think LG had this scheduled with their manufacturing production rate in mind not knowing how much of a disaster Samsung would be going through with the Note 7. I believe had they had foresight as to how bad the Note 7 would be, they would have ramped up their production to keep pace with the numbers of pre-orders.

      • noh1bvisas

        the $200 trade-in on pre-orders is the best reason, i doubt it will be offered in-store.

    • noh1bvisas

      good. now i can’t quit trying to decide if i want to pre-order or not. i had in the cart and everything selected up to the place order button.

  • DILAW IDDAHLA

    This phone will be $550 before the end of the year and that’s when I will get it unless I end up getting a Nexus 6P or Pixel.

  • Billy

    The LG v20 are shipping out!

  • mike reiff

    just got notice my v20 shipped overnite fro, T-Mobile , preordered last nite to trade in my note 7 replacement was shocked its shipping early

    • Carlos Quintanilla

      Will you be getting the $200 credit as will?

    • Mike Sage

      did you have to pay any down?

  • DILAW IDDAHLA

    I have 3 4G devices all T-Mobile (HTC Sensation, Galaxy Note 2 and Note3). All are rooted and have custom ROMs installed on them, but work perfectly on T-mobile. Can I trade any of them in and get the $200? I called T-Mobile and 1 agent told me as long as the phone works and not damaged and another told me to take it to a store to have it inspected. I know T-Mobile will not use these old 4G phones

    • DILAW IDDAHLA

      UPDATE: T-Mobile phone agent suggested that I visit a store and have my phone “inspected” before I send it out for the trade in to verify it qualifies. The agent on the phone mentioned a 3 point inspection. 3 point inspections is the following: 1) Does the phone turn on 2) Does the phone have a cracked/damaged screen and 3) Does the phone have water damage.
      After visiting my local corporate T-Mo store, my phone passed all 3 inspection points and it doesn’t matter if it’s rooted/custom ROM.
      I ordered my V20 last night, but this morning I got an update the phone is on BACK ORDER :( I might cancel it and get the Pixel

    • Just put the Stock ROM back on it, or unroot. My Note 3 is rooted, but I never flashed a custom ROM. Now, I don’t really want to give it up. It’s a great backup phone, in perfect condition. Just doesn’t seem right to get $200 for a phone I paid $700 for

      • DILAW IDDAHLA

        You really need to ask yourself if you need a new phone then. If you like the note 3 and it gives you no issues then I would keep it. I am using a stock note 3 and I have to charge it 3 times a day sometimes. It burns easily 40% of the battery when it sits idle for 7 good when I go to sleep. GPS signal on it is awful and keeps searching while using it. All these issues I didn’t have when I first got the phone though. It will be hard to get$300 for the note 3 now. I am trading my HTC sensation 4G which is I think 10 years old or even older for the$200

        • DILAW IDDAHLA

          I got a new note 3 battery btw, but it didn’t improve the battery life which shocked me. The OS, and signal were the highest battery consumers. All these issues started when I got the lollipop update ota

        • Note 3 is good as a backup, but I want more in specs for a daily driver

  • favosys

    How are you people getting JOD, specifically going from normal Jump to JOD? When the Note 7 was going to come out I wasn’t going to pay $70 down, so I went to T-Mobile to ask about JOD, I waited for like 40 min for someone to talk to me, then finally they talk to me and I ask the guy about JOD, he says that’s an old thing that some people are grandfathered in, I asked him if there was any way I could get the Note 7 with $0 down, he said it was absolutely impossible!

      Please call 611, demand JOD! and speak to a manager if necessary.

    guys for those still confused about the $200. If you have a phone worth more than $20 then dont use that. Go on ebay and find a cheap 4G phone. I was able to snag a samsung shift 4G for $5 in a local thrift shop and i verified the the ESN via swappa. I called TMO and upgraded the tmobile trade in value for a cheap phone is $0. so they will ship you a prepaid env to ship that phone. Instructions are sent to get the $200 echeck (or rebate) from LG. this takes 8wks (up to).

    so if you need quick cash and want to ditch out your phone thats worth more..tmo will give you the value (i.e 83$ for a nexus 6P) and LG will give you $117 via check in 2 months once you send in your rebate.

    you have 20 days to try the phone so dont mess up the box or UPS if you dont intend to keep it.

  • GersonT1000

    Has anybody been successful in getting the $200 credit using Jump On Demand? I plan to exchange my LG G5 for the V20, plus a cheap 4G phone to get the $200 credit by check from LG, but I’m not sure if the offer is valid with JOD.

    • Deswaga

      I was very unsuccessful and getting the $200 credit with my JOD from the V10. Was planning on trading in my Nexus 5 and was told I either had to pay off my remaining EIP on the V10 and cancel my order for the V20 I started…If anyone has a way around this please let me know…because I feel as if I should still get the $200 credit from LG if I turned in my Nexus 5.

      • noh1bvisas

        because you are not buying the phone. you’re leasing it.

      • That’s weird that you can’t get it on JOD. Jump is the same thing, you are still leasing the phone, because you can give it back and get another phone. I’m on JUMP

  • JayBEE

  • limeybastid

    Is this device going to be a souped up mediocre V10? I really wanted to like LG, hence I tried the V10 for a few months, was not impressed to be honest.

  • What’s the deal with throwing in wired, earbud headphones?

    If earbuds, they need to be wireless and the if wired, they need to be over-the-ear.

    It’s a dumb thrown in IMO but at least they sell for a few bucks on eBay.

    • noh1bvisas

      the V20 has a QUAD DAC (google it) that only works with wired buds/headphones. it’s meant to give outstanding audio performance.

    • Erik Weldon

      Or you could read about the phone and see why they included them. Wireless is completely irrelevant, in this case…

  • PiCASSiMO

    Decided to buy it… as the $200 credit + headphones makes it a good alternative to the Pixel XL which I would need to shell out $870.

    • I think I’m going to cancel the $200 discount part of promo. I don’t really want to part with my Note 3. If I turn in the phone in 8 months, won’t really matter much about price and I’d be without my backup phone, haha

      • Dude…. You should have the GN4. WTF are you still doing with the GN3?

        • It’s my backup phone, I got a V10 after that. It’s in perfect condition, rooted. There’s not point in trading it in, of I’m not planning to keep the V20 for 2 years, which I’m not.

      • Turn in ANY 4G smartphone. Why not enjoy a $200 discount with those cheap prepaid ones under $20? They’re all 4G now.

    • Jose M

      Yea that $200 cred is calling me lol. How is the camera?

      • PiCASSiMO

        Haven’t got my phone yet… expect it to arrive later this week.

        Going to give my G4 to my wife and move on to this V20. The camera will be the first thing I will be evaluating, including Steady Record 2.0 that I believe by default is turned off.

      • PiCASSiMO

        The G4 cost me $325 back in November 2015 and I just got the V20. Did some camera comparisons between the G4 and V20 and here’s my unprofessional findings:

        The V20 videos, although a little better in quality, they are not what I expected from a 2016 flagship devices. Sounds great, but not much of an improvement over the G4.

        The V20 pictures, are VERY disappointing. Initially set on the 12MP 16:9, I changed it to the 16MP 4:3, I found pictures to be more watercolour and less sharp than the G4. This is especially true when looking at grass blades and bricks.

        Tried this in both auto and manual mode, and still the G4 came ahead. Loss of detail is very disappointing, especially when I’ve paid more than double the G4 ($770) for this phone.

        Sadly, I’m going to return this back to T-Mobile and wait a little until the S8 comes out (hopefully without the home button and backwards capacitive keys). Maybe by that time the Pixel XL 128GB will drop in price and I’ll consider that.

        Even though the phone experience is snappy and fast, and I kind of like the second top screen, along with the finger print reader, it’s the camera that makes or breaks the phone for me. And in this case, it is very disappointing to have the G4 beat it.

  • Clips4

    I got mine in the mail today. From what I see of it, it is a pretty nice phone. It is snappy. The LG UI is kinda meh. I installed Nova Launcher to give it a stock feel. Otherwise, that secondary screen is pretty nifty especially in the dark when I need to turn on the flash light to see to get to my front door from the driveway. On the Note 7, I had to download a third party flash light app that would allow me easy access to it because how the Note 7 had it set up was terrible. The fingerprint reader is awesome. It not only is in a good shape (circular), but is also in the perfect location. I know the Pixel has the fingerprint reader on the back of the phone, but I am all for more phones to have the home/power button with fingerprint reader on the back of the phone. The scanner allows you to scan different parts of your fingerprint so any part of your finger that is scanned that comes into contact with the scanner when you wake up your phone will unlock your phone. Definitely much better than the fingerprint reader on the Note 7.

    • The LG UI is met, not as snappy as the Note 7. I’ve been giving it a chance, but I will go ahead and use trusty Nova. I’ve noticed battery isn’t as good as the Note 7

      • Clips4

        The battery on the V20 isn’t as good as the Note 7 because the Note 7 has a bigger battery. The V20 has a 3,200 mAh while the Note 7 had a 3,500 mAh battery. The V20’s battery isn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination. I”ve gotten pretty good batty on heavy usage. After playing with it for a couple days, I prefer the Nova Launcher over the LG UI. I enjoy being able to customize the phone to how I want it. The fingerprint reader is still definitely one of the best fingerprint readers on the market. I think when some of the reviewers get a retail model to review, they will agree. It has the best range and speed. I couldn’t stand the Note 7 fingerprint reader because of the stupid oval shape which made it harder to read a lot of your finger. I always used the iris scanner to unlock my phone because it was much faster and accurate than the fingerprint reader.

        • I know that the Note 7 has the bigger battery, but wasn’t expecting a big difference. Samsung just did so good with the RAM management on the Note 7. I find myself missing the Samsung experience. The fingerprint reader on the V20 is definitely better. I like how you don’t actually have to push the button to unlock, just touch your finger to the button to unlock

    • PiCASSiMO

      Does the Nova Launcher help with the pull-down menu’s along with the system settings?

      • Clips4

        Not so much the system settings. The Settings part is still whatever LG has it at. Nova Launcher allows you to change the grid layout on the main home page. It allows you to do a tone of things. I wish Nova launcher came with more apps themes though. Right now, it only allows you system and Android M themes for the apps. The looks are stock Android for me, but it feels like the LG phone which is perfectly fine with me.

      • Clips4

        I actually wish I had learned about Nova Launcher sooner when I had the Note 7. I was never a huge fan of TouchWiz.

    • Devin Moravec

      Don’t really agree with the fingerprint reader. It worked a ton better for me on the Note7, plus the iris scanner was freaking fantastic. The V20 is a nice secondary option though for sure! I had no issues with using the flashlight on the Note7, but I sure do like this second screen on the V20. Kind of annoying if I am trying to watch a show or play a little game in my down time though :/.

  • Sushimane

    Does anyone know how long the promotion of the free beoplay ear buds last.

    • noh1bvisas

      LG’s website says “For a limited time, get a free pair of H3 by B&O PLAY earphones (a $149 value) with your V20 purchase while supplies last.”

      TMO’s website says:
      “Get $200 and FREE premium B&O PLAY earphones Introducing the new LG V20 with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display. For a limited time, get a $200 credit when you trade-in your old phone at T-Mobile*. Plus, experience the exceptional audio quality of the LG V20’s Hi-Fi Quad DAC with a FREE pair of H3 by B&O PLAY earphones ($149 value). Offer valid through 11/20/16.”

  • Lmao.. Cheesy and funny as fuq video.

  • Wankaboos

    BE WARNED when ordering online this phone is sold out
    Estimated shipping date from 11/08 to 11/29 per tmobile rep

  • livewire1981

    The 200 promo ended with the pre-order. Lucky they honored mine through bill credits cause no one at the store, up to the manager knew.

    Just a heads up.

    • Chase Culpepper

      Where are you seeing that? Can you provide a source? The flyer I have that I got while at the T-Mobile store a week and a half ago says Trade in a 4g smartphone and recieve the $200 back. Redeem by 12/11/2016. Nowhere does it say preorder only.

      • livewire1981

        The only thing I can really show is my Twitter dms with T Force and the fact the promo site said I had nothing to redeem.

        If I am wrong great, but I would check with your sales rep etc to be sure.

        • Chase Culpepper

          Man that sucks. Thanks for the info. I haven’t called Customer Care yet to verify. When I was in the store talking to the sales rep I told him I was going to wait for the phone to be released and I’ll bring in my phone for the swap then. He didn’t mention that it was for preorders only. Guess I won’t be getting the phone then and sticking with the Note 4 for now.

  • Devin Moravec

    Are you serious?! I ordered mine over the phone on 10/20 and did not get it until the second week of November! They have given me the expected shipping dates 10/24-10/28. Had to contact them just to get the update that I would not get until until much later.

    • noh1bvisas

      i guess paying for expedited shipping – i think it was 25 bucks – made the difference.

      i’ve received the b&o earbuds, but not the $200 trade-in. i didn’t send the trade-in until a couple days before thanksgiving, though. i did receive confirmation that they received the phone.
