T-Mobile discounts price of LG Wing, LG Velvet 5G

t-mobile-discounts-price-lg-wing-lg-velvet-5g

Earlier this week, LG confirmed the rumors that it would be shutting down its mobile phone business. But just before this comes to an end, T-Mobile has stepped up to offer two LG deals that hope to attract last minute phone buyers.

Right now, T-Mobile is running an offer on the LG Wing and the LG Velvet. Technically, the LG Wing isn’t exactly an offer, but T-Mo has brought down the price of the phone to $599.99 instead of the original retail price of $999.99. The good thing about this offer is that you don’t need to meet any requirements or do anything to get the phone with a $400 discount. You can choose to pay the price of the phone outright or via 24-monthly payments of $25/month. 

The other offer that T-Mo is running is on the LG Velvet 5G. This device is currently discounted to $400 instead of the original launch price of $588. But you can save more money with your purchase when you activate a line and sign up for a monthly installment plan. With this arrangement, you can get the Velvet 5G for $99. 

If you’re worried about buying a “dead” phone, LG has already promised that it will be delivering up to three major Android updates to select phones. And yes, this includes the LG Velvet and LG Wing. So with that in mind, you’ll still be covered by three more OS updates.

    Seems like the velvet price went up. They were selling it for $288 for almost two months.

    • krisstofer

      Oh yah you’re right. It was cheaper like few weeks ago.

      • marque2

        I bought one of them @ half price six weeks after the deal was announced

  • pda96

    Too bad the V60 isn’t included. I’d love to pick one of these up as a backup.

    • marque2

      I would get the wing instead. Unfortunately V60 is one of their more problematic phones

        With the pre-Trump chips running out, we may have to wait for the TSMC plant in Arizona to get open before we’ll see any recent chip designs.

        • marque2

          Pre Trump chips? TSMC won’t have a plant in AZ until 2024 or later,.should they really choose to make one there.

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          Trump banned the importation of chips from TSMC in Taiwan.
          Trump forced TSMC to build the plant in Arizona so their obsolete chips could be made by Americans.

        • marque2

          When did Trump ban TSMC chips? You are getting mixed up. He banned certain 5g chips from communist China. He never banned things from Taiwan

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          All of the 5G chips are made by TSMC and Huawei, who share their customers.

        • marque2

          Dude you are wrong. The only company banned is Huawei, and that was largely dropped.

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          Let me know when my errors exceed your wild imagination and naive assumption that everything you know that you can’t prove is correct.
          Huawei isn’t banned, outside of their so-branded products.

        • marque2

          Well dude, the info is available on the Internet. I guess instead of making more assertions, to counter your imagination, I will just let the people who are interested decide – by duckduckgo’ing the info for themselves.

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          Everything is available on the Internet.
          Does that mean that you believe it all without vetting?
          Apparently so.

          “TDS stands for tax deducted at source?”

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          ” It’s also used as a social-media hashtag in reference to the Tour De Suisse bike race.”

          “General Motors and Ford said Thursday they will temporarily idle more North American factories over a shortage of semiconductors, as the months-long supply pinch continues to hammer a range of automakers. … The shutdowns will affect about 10,000 workers, GM spokesman David Barnas said.”
          Biden didn’t cause the problem, Trump did. Nothing deranged about the truth.

          Two whole comments in two years? Are you working two (sic) hard?

        • marque2

          Yes and Foxconn is making iPhones in Wisconsin, and Apple made a huge battery factory in AZ as well. (In case you don’t get sarcasm, both kinda sorta started, and bugged out)

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          Apple wouldn’t be in the cellphone business if they lost their Chinese manufacturers.

        • marque2

          They probably shouldn’t be then. If you can’t make your phone without slave labor, you shouldn’t make a phone at all.

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          How much should slaves be paid, working in the best compensated assembly plants in China?

        • marque2

          Hmm, except Foxconn is known to use free Uiyger labor. I am sure they pay many people there, but if a company has even one slave, I am kind of suspect.

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          Depending on how you define slave, all companies use slave labor.

        • marque2

          You should use Indeed dot com.

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          I’m not hiring.

      • pda96

        How so? Can u provide details?

        • marque2

          The biggest issue is the strap that connects the USB C to the motherboard comes loose and you start having to play games with the charge cable to get it to charge – often it rapidly goes into charge mode – not charge mode going dading dading dading randomly annoying everyone in the office if it happens when you are away.

          Also I screen finger print reader doesn’t work well. I have to lock my thumb to get it to work (I liked the rear button better) Also no face unlock, unlike other LG models.

          Both the V60s I bought have this problem with the USB C and others have complained on this board about it.

          Even though it has lesser CPU specs, the Velvet is overall a better phone. (And I have one of those too – we are an LG family)

      They might be running out of LG V60 ThinQ 5G. I got one the day of the announcement and it was the only one in the four or five stores nearby. The store that had it in stock was the smallest that didn’t even have the LGs on display.

      I went to a store. They had none and looked up the nearby stores. They only found one.

      N.B. The LG V60 ThinQ 5G has already had one Android version update.

  • Bklynman

    Well at least Moto has step to the plate in a big way. Forcing Samsung to bring out some their midrange phones from Korea to over here. One plus with the sub $300 phones. Too bad about Lg. They were trying to do many different things at the same time. They should kept thier flex phone. The V series,if kept like v-20 2nd display build on that. Then bring over here some of there midrange phones, they of done really good. Like the Stlyo plus have in Korea,either they never offer over here or no carrie wanted it. Names of their phones Think -7.(However they spell it). Whoever thought up that name should be fired!!

    • Zerovanity

      I think the T-Mobile deal with Google may be a reaction to this. LG only had sizable market share in Korea, USA, and Brazil. It was just too unprofitable. What they should have done is reduce the number of models. When companies start, they have only a few models; when they die, they have many.

  • Mike Smith

    LG makes phones? Wow exciting news! Who’s next, Sony?!

    • Francisco Peña

      not anymore.

  • marque2

    My two favorite Lg phones for the time were the Nexus 5g – just seemed to have just the right out of features at a very affordable price. And the G8 – beautiful screen, lots of features and very responsive.

    • Bklynman

      Never had Lg phone as my main phone. Pick up used V-30 on ebay as a back up phone. Really impressed with it. When Lg Flex came out play with it in Tmo store. It seems pretty fast. The store the display model with really looking intense game on it. Almost get it,but brought Note 3 instead.

      • marque2

        I like my V30. It gets a bad rap because the screen is slightly blue, but the OLED screen is still much better than previous ones.

  • AA-Ron

    Instead of the Samsung a32 they should give away this phone

  • Bay_Ranger

    Ignore LG’s promise of future updates. They have a history of not keeping their promises on updates.

  • Francisco Peña

    Will take 3 OS upgrades by Google for LG to actually get around to reaching the 1st OS upgrade.

    • marque2

      And – I always wonder about this. What does an OS upgrade get you but pain? It reorganizes the phone,.gets glitchy with those fantastic new features, messes up either wifi or Bluetooth so you have to reset everything. I’ll pass and wait for the new phone.

      • Francisco Peña

        some people get pissy when they aren’t updated immediately. I agree with you, because its not like the phone will crap out the after after it doesn’t get an OS update.

  • Mike Smith

    Too bad Sony doesn’t make phones.

    • they do, I just dont think that have any Carrier partnerships. In fact they’re set to announce a new flagship this week.

      • Mike Smith

        If a flagship is announced in the woods does it make a sound? Or something like that.

        LG, Sony, etc. no one cares… or buys.

        • Bklynman

          Yeah too bad for us!! One less phone company to complete against Samsung. Just think Nokia,LG,HTC,Sony,Blackberry,the others ones that don’t get pick up by a carrier, just think,how much less The flagship phones would be. If it wasn’t for One plus one, Moto bringing out better spec midrange phones, I doubt Samsung would of brought out there midrange phones over here.

        • Mike Smith

          They’re not competing even a little. 4 out of 5 of the top selling phones are iPhones anyway. And the rest are Google spy machines. Can’t win.

  • Manbearpig

    Ugh I pulled the trigger on the wing. For whatever reason that phone fascinates me. It won’t replace my Note 20 Ultra full time but I could see it as a weekend phone when I’m with the kids the the ultra is pain in the ass to carry

  • TMCraver

    Anyone notice the verbiage of the promise? It says up to 3 major updates, up to includes 0 ;) :D. I’m an LG fan btw but that promise promised nothing haha

  • TenEightyPeePee

    They should unlock the bootloader on these so that the community can support the phones….
