LG G6 launches today, T-Mobile offering free tablet with purchase


A little more than one month after it was announced, the LG G6 has arrived on T-Mobile’s shelves.

Today is LG G6 launch day, which means that you should be able to stroll into your friendly neighborhood T-Mobile store and pick one up. You can also order online if you’re not in the mood to leave the house.

Pricing for the LG G6 is set at $26 down and $26 per month for 24 months, which works out to a total of $650. JUMP! On Demand customers will pay $0 down and $29 per month, with a final payment of $128.

When it comes to color options, T-Mobile is selling the Black and Ice Platinum versions of LG’s new Android flagship.

And then there are the promotions. Customers that buy an LG G6 before April 30 can get a free Google Home from LG. T-Mobile today kicked off a promo of its own, offering a free LG G Pad X 8.0 to customers that buy an LG G6 (or LG V20) and a G Pad X 8.0 on EIP and also sign up for a 2GB or higher mobile internet data plan. After doing this, T-Mobile will send a rebate in the form of a prepaid MasterCard card that can be used to cover the EIP balance on the tablet.

Some T-Mobile pre-order customers have had the LG G6 for a while now, but it’s still exciting to see a new flagship smartphone hitting store shelves. Will you be buying an LG G6? If you’re one of the lucky folks that’ve had one for a couple of weeks now, what do you think of it?

    waiting for the lg v30

    • Mike Thaler

      What is diff., in general, between “V” series and “G” series phones?
      I have a G4 that was (after 15 mo.) struck by the famous bootloop problem. LG fixed it. Now 5 months after that I have to pull the battery 2-3 times a day. (Did a full reboot – no help. Gather V10 had bootloop problem. Don’t know if they fixed the V20 or G5.
      G4 is barely 20 months old.
      Would get G6 IF I had some way of knowing it would last.

      • skywalkr2

        Yes. This is why I don’t trust LG.

      • Yoane Sanchez

        I have lgv20 have had no problems and am loving this phone!

      • ValuedOne

        I do NOT trust LG anymore. LG did not fix the LG G4. My phone failed months after purchase and 21 months after date of manufacture. LG extended but limited warranty to 18 months. So outside of 18 months, you are out of luck. The issue I read is with their manufacturing line that leaves bad contacts on the motherboard. I purchased the phone from T-Mobile, but they referred me over to LG, since I did not purchase extended warranty. LG said that since my phone was out of warranty it would cost me $179 to fix the phone, that I paid $663 just 21 months ago.

  • Fan_Posting

    Simply said, phones are so pricey and like a new car, they devalue so quickly.

    However, just do it and treat yourself to a new phone by using your Jump, JOD, and/or EIP… and enjoy it like a brand new Shiny penny….

    • Acdc1a

      I’m a cash buyer. Seems pretty silly to pay 50% of my phone bill to phone payments.

      • Fan_Posting

        Simply said, I agree.

        To that point, I am still rocking my Samsung Note 3 and keeping my dollars in my pockets (smile).

        However, I understand others my opt for a new phone every now and then. If so, there are a few options (EIP, Jump, and/or JOD) including buying cash outright for a device.

        • Acdc1a

          I’m actually excited for an S8…it will just be 6-8 months until I can buy it from Mywit for less than half of the cost new.

      • Francisco Peña

        If you have the cash, go for it. I’d rather just pay slightly more for 18 months and have it.

        • Acdc1a

          I buy well after launch for 1/2 price or less. Very affordable.

        • Francisco Peña

          I do too, but do the JoD at that point… Got my G4 well after it came out when it was on sale under $400. payed $16/mo then swapped it later for a G5. G5 had been out for over 6 months at that point.

  • HeatFan786

    Meanwhile, no viable deals to match the S8 deals Verizon, US Cellular, and AT&T offer new and/or existing customers.

    These new phones are way too damn pricey at times, so anything to lock subscribers in for 2-3 years would be smart on T-Mobile’s end, especially since they did it with the iPhone 7 last September. The iPhone is even more expense than some of its competitors.

  • Mike

    G6 is already being over shadowed by the Galaxy S8. LG should of released this phone earlier. $100 more and you have the newest processor, better camera, and better screen.

    • George Salcedo

      Don’t fully agree it’s being overshadowed, it’ll likely be my next device when my S7 doesn’t fit my needs.

      • skywalkr2

        I was going to use jump on demand for the s8… But there are no versions without screen edge. So this year the s7 update path is only g6.

    • Ryan Smith

      I have the g6 and literally no interest in the s8.
      The camera on the g6 is a beast.

      Also, processor difference in real world use is negligible.

      • Mike

        Does the G6 have iris scanner , wireless charging , standard 64GB storage, and vR and desktop capability.

        • Dennis Mak

          1. The fingerprint is wicked fast with the G6 and the position is super convenience. I don’t think I can unlock my phone in dark places with Iris scanner
          2. It does have wireless charging.
          3. Yes LG lost the battle with this one, and do think 32GB is a mistake for them.
          4. You can sure buy a 3rd party VR to play content, but AR is really the future, not VR. Are you going to buy the desktop dock? Do you not have a computer at home?

          Iris scanner, VR…, half-baked desktop capability… worth $100 – $200 more? Hmm I will take the G6 thanks

        • Mike

          Yes don’t forget the newest processor as well that runs faster and using less power. The S8 infinity screen trumps the G6 screen . AR is years away and doesn’t give a excuse for G6 skipping the feature and being price $100 less then the S8. So for $100 more the S8 is absolutely worth skipping the G6.

        • Dennis Mak

          Sure, if you actually feel the difference in everyday use, then I will take the 835. S8 trumps G6 screen? I don’t know really. This comes to personal preference. While the black looks darker, the white is on the yellow-side side. The IPS on the G6 looks great for a LCD, but obviously looks less punchier than the S8.

          I would like to know what kind of battery life people will get on the S8, since the phone comes with 1080P as the default resolution. The SD 835 supposes to be more power efficient. We will see.

        • Mike

          Overall G6 isn’t a bad phone but The S8 is only $100 more. Also Samsung site is running a promo on a silver S8 for $650 . If the G6 was priced around $500-$550 it would appeal to more cusomers.

        • Dennis Mak

          That’s true with the $100 on Samsung.com. I do agree it would be a lot more appealing if G6 is priced lower, given the spec and missing features. LG had already lost ground comparing to Samsung, and I don’t think G6 can help them to rise up.

        • Francisco Peña

          give it 2 months… that G6 will be on sale…

        • Dennis Mak

          Actually, prices for the G6 on Swappa is at 530ish. Not bad at all

  • Rick_Diesel

    The G Pad X 8.0 is the best cheap tablet out there. I got one on the tablet on us promo and its been clutch

    • skywalkr2

      We got it on the last free option… And my wife loves it

  • Riche-Andre Jean

    The tablet is not free.
    T-MOBILE told my wife the same thing for the Samsung Galaxy note 5.
    And we end up paying the tab 8 more than $300. It is a scam.
    Becareful people!!!

    • Tanisha Lyn Stenson Jaglarski

      True story;!!!! Same thing happened to me!!!!o

    • Neoprimal

      I got mine for free, all I did was follow their instructions.

      If you didn’t then obviously, you did something wrong.

      • Corey Jalette

        I’ve gotten two of these for free. Only worth it when you get the Mastercard vs the months credits. Because once you get the prepaid card you pay it off and can cancel your tablet line if you want. Good spare tablet to have.

  • NardVa

    T-Mobile just ran a promo where they offered the same tablet for free if you signed up for a data plan 2GB or higher. Now T-Mobile wants you to by a phone to get the tablet free.

    • Ty Christensen

      On the other deal once you got the rebate after 3 months or so you could cancel the data plan, pay off the tablet and keep it but with this new deal you have to keep the data plan for 2 years (so monthly credits for 2 years) or they make you pay for the tablet, not a good deal.

      • LastSignal

        I actually just did this offer last night and re-read the fine print several times. You dint have to keep the data plan for two years. If you cancel the line before 24 months, you have to pay whatever is left of the installment plan upon line termination. If you pay off the phone with the rebate card, then that’s zero.

        I kept rereading and questioning them about it and i pulled up T-Mobile’s faq on the deal while in the store to triple check.

        • Ty Christensen

          Yes but doesn’t keeping the line open for 24 months mean you’re paying the data for 24 months? I don’t think you can just have a line open with no data plan on it for a tablet.

        • LastSignal

          Good questions; they’re questions that I asked myself. You can close or you can ‘put the line on reserve’, as it was told to me. If you close the line before 24 months, then you owe the balance leftover on the device. If you have paid off the device with the rebate they give you, then there’s no balance due, so you don’t owe anything.

          Putting the line on reserve stops monthly payments, but if you ever decide to have the line again, you don’t have to pay a line activation fee. The said that’s the benefit of putting it on reserve instead of cancelling it.

          You can use a tablet on Wi-Fi only. That’s how I’ve used every other tablet I’ve owned (never had a sim card tablet). I’m 95% certain you can use this tablet on Wi-Fi only, too.

        • cldra87

          Thanks for all your research! I was thinking about doing the same promotion but was worried that if I cancelled early they would double charge me. Thankfully, I am wrong!!

  • Daniel Fraga

    My wife and I have had our G6 for 2 weeks now. Awesome phone! Zero complaints.

  • Irfan

    better to buy One Plus 3T , if u are thinking to pay in full , at least u will get AMLOED

    • Ty Christensen

      I 2nd that, One Plus 3T is better in my opinion or hold out for the One Plus 5 that will supposedly have Snap 835 and 8GB RAM.

  • phillyundead

    Not worth the risk after the v20 bootlooped on me.

    • Sammie Bell

      Oh no!!! I bought the LG V20 not too long ago. Are you freaking kidding me??? I haven’t had any issues yet but I hope my phone doesn’t bootloop as well.

      • phillyundead

        I hope yours doesn’t but mine did a few weeks after release. The g5, nexus 5x and v20 were just added to the class action lawsuit for the bootlooping against LG too.

        • Sammie Bell

          OMG!!! I didn’t know LG had a history of phones boot looping. Do you think the upcoming LG V30 that’s coming out later this year will have the same issue?
