T-Mobile LG V30 is now available for pre-order, buyers get free Daydream View headset


The LG V30 doesn’t officially launch at T-Mobile until October 13th, but you can snag one of your very own starting today.

T-Mobile is now taking pre-orders for the LG V30. T-Mo tells me that the V30 will start shipping immediately, so you could get your shiny new smartphone before it hits stores.

Pricing for the LG V30 is set at $80 down and $30 per month for 24 months, or $800 full retail. JUMP! On Demand pricing is $0 down and $33 per month.

Also of note is that customers that buy an LG V30 can get a free Google Daydream View virtual reality headset and a VR content pack. To qualify, you’ll need to point your browser to LG’s promotion site and enter info like your name, address, and email address, as well as upload a legible copy of your receipt and a picture of your V30 box with IMEI number.

One of the most notable features of the LG V30, at least with regard to T-Mobile, is that it’s the first smartphone to support T-Mo’s 600MHz LTE coverage. 600MHz is only live in Cheyenne, Wyo., and Scarborough, Maine, right now, but T-Mobile has said that it plans to roll out coverage in places like Northeast and Southwest Oregon, the Oklahoma panhandle, Central Virginia, Central Pennsylvania, and other parts of the U.S. in 2017.

Other features of the LG V30 include a 6-inch 2880×1440 OLED display, 16-megapixel rear camera with f/1.6 aperture and 13-megapixel wide angle rear camera with f/1.9 aperture, 5-megapixel wide angle front camera, 64GB of storage and a microSD slot. The V30 is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor that’s paired with 4GB of RAM and a 3,300mAh battery. It runs Android 7.1.2.

    Too pricey IMO. I’ll wait until the “free” VR headset isn’t included and the price of the phone is $150 less. I have no interest in the headset.

    • Iphart

      VR is dead. This headset is worthless.

  • bill evans

    They have too much competition to even attempt to ask 800 dollars for this device. (NO THANKS LG)

    • Peter Coyt

      That’s a strange way to put it. The LG doesn’t really have a lot of competition only the Note 8, iPhone X and the Pixel 2. That being said the Pixel 2 is the only one that gives it the most serious competition but thats because of the stock android. Otherwise the LG beats all these phones spec wise as well as in price. Being that iPhones and the Note are at or close to a grand 800 is pretty well priced. You are of course entitled to your opinion just thought it was strange that the reason was because they asked for a couple 100 less then the other competition for specs just as good if not better.

  • Bklynman

    Pass too,only silver,no bogo,no free so call tablet,no thanks,I will wait see what kinds of deals they have black friday or really black friday week,check what Samclub and any the othe big box stores are doing


    Agree with Previous comments… Too expensive and don’t care about the VR gear.

    • dcmanryan

      Just wait. I’m certain a BYGO is coming sooner than later. Probably around the time the iPhone X is available.

    • mavricxx

      Just don’t buy it then, I mean compared to the Note 8 or iPhones $800 is a bargain for what you get. My only disappointement is that they didn’t include the headphones and the adapters like all the other unboxings

  • All2shop

    I just ordered my LGV30. I don’t care that the color is only Silver right now, because all my phones goes right in Protective cases anyway. I had a LGV20, LGG3, LGG4, LGG6 I loved them all and I have had NO issues with the LG phones.
    Now for the other cell phones I have had was Samsung Flagships. Notes & S’s They have giving me and my Wife issues here and there. Plus one strange thing happens after 1 to 2 years these darn Samsung phones really just start acting up like there is a timer inside or something almost forcing you to go and buy another latest and greatest cell phone.

      What difference does it make what a phone starts doing after a year, when you claim to change them out every few months?…

  • Fonz

    Does this have the ear buds,B&O Play earphones

    • Galaxy_Fan

      From the official t-mobile unboxing video on youtube the ear buds are not included. The video was very clear that they were not in the box. There are also plenty of comments confirming that they will not be included in any of the US models.

  • best

    When TMobile will ship? ATT is already shipping their orders.

    • Galaxy_Fan

      The second paragraph says that they are shipping immediately.

    • James Symmonds

      Mine has shipped! I’ll have it tomorrow.

  • BJ Lindquist

    From t-mobile.com:
    …about the LG GPad X2 PLUS offer…As of 10/5/17, the LG V30 is also an eligible device for purchase.

  • Geo G

    Verizon has the $200 VISA pre-paid card deal.

    Wish tmo had that!

    But then Tmo does have the cheapest rates, so….

    • Francisco Peña

      just wait a month and you will get an instant $200 off.

  • James Symmonds

    Mine is shipping. Will be here tomorrow.

    • Charles McCaskill

      That’s BS!! I ordered right at 8am and my order is processing. Plus I have next day shipping!

      • mustang8918

        You may want to check the UPS site. I did overnight shipping as well and Tmobile’s site shows processing but the UPS site has a tracking number and shows that it will be delivered tomorrow.

      • James Symmonds

        I ordered at 730am CDT and overnight shipping.

        • Charles McCaskill

          I just figured out why. The IDIOT I ordered with didn’t give me overnight shipping when I asked for it. She charged me $8 for shipping when overnight is $24. I didn’t know what it should have been….so ANGRY!

  • WT

    I wonder if blue color will be available anytime soon.

    • roger shahan

      T-Mobile is only getting silver -.- i wanted the iradium so bad or the blue

      • WT

        Korean unlocked version won’t support the 600mhz or band 12 would it?

  • Jake Fitzpatrick

    Is this phone in store so I can hold it? Anyone know?

    • Nionx

      Not in stores at Tmobile but I went to Verizon and they had it to hold in hand. Very nice. Can’t wait for mine

  • roger shahan

    Do we get the new headset that was just announced or the old 1

    • Bay_Ranger


  • Francis Taquin

    Canada soon…

  • Steve Park

    That’s the same thing my order says and it’s only 30 miles from me to the Louisville UPS Logistics center where the phone comes from. Guess we get in on Monday.

  • johnnyxlayer

    How do we fill out the free daydream view promo without a reciet

  • Bay_Ranger

    T-Mobile sold out. Back-ordered.

  • Glenn Yudenfriend

    I ordered it yesterday morning,got it this afternoon!

  • johnnyxlayer

    I orderd mine on Thursday and I’m still waiting for it to be delivered

  • Jake Fitzpatrick

    I called customer service to order this phone for a family member. However, even when we tried to JUMP they wanted us to pay a down payment of $80. He told me he was surprised considering I have never missed a payment. Ever. We were then disappointed to learn that there is not other colors to choose from besides Silver during the pre-order period. The rep told us we could pre-order the silver or wait for a refurbished phone in a few years. He actually said refurbished and a few years. The family member hopes to get the color lavender. There is no information anywhere on the Internet, that we can find, that even discusses how to get the lavender color. Anyone have any insight on this?

    • Bay_Ranger

      T-Mobile will only be carrying silver. Black or silver are the only colors in the USA. When unlocked versions become available, there might be another color made available.

      • Jake Fitzpatrick

        Thanks! I’ll let her know.

  • Bay_Ranger

    T-Mobile seems to have the worst deal on the V30 of all the four major carriers.

    • Fonz


  • Jose Hernandez

    I just place my order today, it says processing and that it should ship between 10-11-17 to 10-13-17, I selected overnight delivery, has anyone that saw the back order status received an update or shipment yet?
