LG’s G4 arrives at T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and US Cellular next week


Have you been eyeing LG’s latest flagship handset since it was announced last month? Well, it’s set to arrive in the US next week. T-Mobile began selling the G4 online today, for $0 down and $25/month for two years or $599.76 if you’re looking to part with a lump sum. The pink-hued carrier is looking to lure early adopters with an extra that’ll make good use of that microSD card slot. If you opt in “while supplies last,” you can expect a free 128GB card for free. And T-Mobile’s the spot to grab that dapper brown leather rear cover. The LG G4 won’t go on sale in stores until June 3rd, so nabbing one now means yours will ship before the phone hits retail. Not a fan of T-Mobile? Fret not.

Sprint announced last week that it would start selling the G4 on June 5th Metallic Gray and Leather Black. The carrier also has the same deal as T-Mobile ($0 down, $25/month for 24 months), on top of the two-year contract price of $200. And yes, you can still forgo the commitment for $600. Verizon’s version of G4 will be available June 4th, but it’s taking pre-orders starting tomorrow. Spacing out the payments over 24 months will set you back $22.91/month with Big Red and buying the handset outright with no contract costs $550. Opting to go with Verizon still gets you the phone in either Metallic Gray or Leather Black and there’s also a number of bundles that tack on an LG tablet or the LG Watch Urbane for some extra dough.

If you still aren’t happy with those options, US Cellular will have the G4 up for grabs on June 4th. Unfortunately, there’s no word on when the handset will be available from AT&T just yet. LG’s offering offering added perks to get you splurge for the device with an extra battery, charging cradle and 32GB microSD card available by mail — if you purchase before June 21st. What does opening up your wallet to any of these carriers get you? On top of the aforementioned expandable storage, there’s great battery life, a 5.5-inch vibrant IPS Quantum display, capable 16-megapixel camera and more.

Get the LG G4 from T-Mobile, starting tomorrow


LG_G4_From_NYC_02

T-Mobile’s LG G4 will be launching through their online store tomorrow, May 26. If you can wait, T-Mobile should have the LG G4 in-stores come June 3. In either option, T-Mobile will be the first carrier in the US to offer the LG G4.

Pre-orders should begin shipping tomorrow, as well. If you’re just looking at getting the device through T-Mobile, you can pick up LG’s new flagship for $0 down, on a $25/mo payment plan for 24 months. There’s always the option of buying it outright for $599, too.

T-Mobile is making buying the LG G4 from them even sweeter, though. Purchasers will receive a free 128GB microSD card, while supplies last. This is a drastic upgrade from the 32GB solution LG is offering to US buyers. Not sure about the LG G4 just yet? Be sure to check out our hands-on video below.

T-Mobile shipping LG G4 online orders from tomorrow, with free 128GB card for early buyers


lg g4 review aa (25 of 34)

There seems to be a growing trend these days with online availability and advance releases. Both the Nexus 6 and the Galaxy S6/Edge were shipped out to those ordering online before their retail availability hit. T-Mobile is continuing this trend with the newly announced (and slightly controversial) LG G4. The latest and greatest smartphone staple from LG will begin its journey to customer’s hands this Wednesday, May 27th, a full week before the official in-store release date of June 3rd.

On top of this early access, there is some extra icing in the form of the Un-carrier’s decision to include a special bonus with the device. As we covered a few days earlier, LG is offering T-Mobile customers some sweet swag, as early adopters will receive a spare battery, a portable charging dock for said extra battery, and a 32GB microSD card via mail after registering their device. The deal is even more delicious, however, for those who order before June 21st will have their 32GB card upgraded to a whopping 128GB. As the press release indicates, said 128GB card needs to be applied for online, and will take 4-6 weeks to arrive just like the other bonus items.

lg g4 review aa (10 of 34)

It would seem as if Korean OEMs have become quite interested in offering extra value propositions to early adopters, as Samsung was giving a free Qi Wireless Charging Pad with the Galaxy S6, and last year (in select markets) had given away a free Wallet Case with the Galaxy Note Edge to pre-orders. With respect to the spare battery and charger however, there is some irony to be had, as both are included as standard accessories (free of charge) with LG and Samsung devices in their home market. Still, it never hurts to share the love.

The LG G4 will cost $0 up-front to “well qualified customers” and can be paid off in 24 installments of $24.99 per month. That works out to a retail price of $599.76. The complete press release follows below.

Nexus 6 may get Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update with T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling sometime soon


nexus 6 first impressions (9 of 21)

A good amount of Nexus devices have already begun receiving the update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, though the update for Google’s most recent flagship is still nowhere to be found. No, it’s not the most important update that Google has ever pushed out, though it would still be nice to see it make its way to the Nexus 6 in a timely fashion. As it turns out, we might not have to wait much longer, according to Des, a Product Evangelist at T-Mobile.

A little over a week ago, Des mentioned on Twitter that T-Mobile and Google are still working on bringing Wi-Fi calling to the Nexus 6, and that the update would begin testing within 7-10 days. Take a look:

Now that it’s been ten days, many folks are probably wondering the status of the update. Thankfully, Des came back this morning to give everyone a little teaser on what’s to come for the weekend.

We’ll have to wait and see whether or not Google and T-Mobile have worked out all of the bugs associated with this update. But as for right now, Nexus 6 owners can expect to see Android 5.1.1 roll out sometime this weekend.

T-Mobile Nexus 6 now said to be getting the WiFi calling update


Nexus_6_Official_4573

T-Mobile’s popular social media figure, Des on Twitter has subtly hinted that the WiFi calling update for the Nexus 6 could be rolling out starting today. His tweet said the following – “This is shaping up to be a very Happy Memorial day weekend… #Nexus6

While he’s not making it obvious that the update is being sent out, the responses to the tweet mention that it is currently being sent out to the devices. Also the hashtag leaves nothing to the imagination.

We’re yet to see anything on the company’s site at the moment, but we’ll update you with more information as we have it. There shouldn’t be any other changes bundled with the update as the carrier is only enabling the WiFi calling feature.

So T-Mobile Nexus 6 users, are you seeing the update yet?

T-Mobile Un-Carries Its Way to New Alabama Facility


 

Birmingham Alabama T-Mobile2

T-Mobile defines itself as “America’s fastest growing wireless company,” and it’s doubling down on that claim by opening a new customer care facility in Birmingham, Alabama. But don’t take our word for it. Behold, the wonderful, self-congratulatory world of press releases!

Bellevue, Washington and Birmingham, Alabama − May 21, 2015 – With the Un-carrier™ revolution continuing to disrupt US wireless and attract millions of customers, T-Mobile is applying its flair for bold innovation to a brand new customer care center in Birmingham, Alabama. T-Mobile threw open its doors today with company leaders and community representatives present at the all-new, expanded customer care facility. The Un-carrier also stepped up its longtime support of youth in the local community, announcing a $10,000 grant to the YMCA of Greater Birmingham by the T-Mobile Foundation.

“Customers are #1 at T-Mobile. As millions join the Un-carrier movement, we’re making big investments in our customer care to match,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “With today’s grand opening of this truly inspiring care center, we’re not only doubling down on the best possible care for our customers—we’re also committing to a stellar work environment for our people and investing in the local community. This is win-win-win.”

Last month, T-Mobile was named one of the Best Places to Work by the Birmingham Business Journal for the second year in a row. The award specifically called out T-Mobile’s Birmingham customer care center for outstanding teamwork, trust and great management.

T-Mobile has been a community partner and major employer in Birmingham for nearly 20 years. In 2014, the Un-carrier hired nearly 250 employees, and almost 100 people have been hired already this year. T-Mobile plans to hire more employees at the new, larger care center before the end of the year.

T-Mobile is “all in” in Birmingham! Employees regularly lead and take part in community events and partner with organizations such as the YMCA of Greater Birmingham, the South Hampton School, Gifts for Angel Tree Kids and Relay for Life. T-Mobile is committed to the local communities it serves across the US, while creating the culture and environment that makes it Un-carrier − and completely unlike anyone else in the wireless industry.

So there you have it. Move to Alabama, like now.

As part of a separate Magenta Thunder deal, T-Mobile is selling the Samsung Galaxy Avant for $99. Simply use the promo code THUNDER100 and you’ll shave $100 off the phone. This web-only promotion runs May 19-20.

Holiday weekend deals on T-Mobile, MetroPCS


T-Mobile_Logo_954

A major holiday in the U.S. means retailers will be hitting consumers up with a variety of deals. The long Memorial Day weekend is no exception as T-Mobile, and their prepaid subsidiary MetroPCS, have some special offers coming up for anyone looking to purchase a new smartphone or switch service.

Buyers who are hoping to pick up a new Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge may want to hold off until this weekend. Starting Saturday, May 23rd and running through Monday, May 25th, T-Mobile will double the amount of onboard memory in the devices. You can get the 64GB versions of either smartphone for the current price of the 32GB versions, which is equal to an instant savings of $80. If you only need a 32GB version, T-Mobile will send you a $50 VISA pre-paid gift card, making the net price equal to a 16GB version.

Consumers looking at value priced LG smartphones will have an opportunity to take advantage of special pricing as well. If you were hoping to pick up the new LG G Stylo smartphone, T-Mobile will let you buy it for $0 down at then $12.08 per month for 24 months or pay $290 full retail. The carrier is also offering the LG Leon LTE for zero down with payments only $6.24 per month for 24 months or a retail price of $150. If you happen to be a prepaid subscriber, T-Mobile is offering an online rebate for the LG Leon LTE that results in the phone being free.

MetroPCS is also offering deals on the LG Stylo and LG Leon LTE. The Leon LTE will be available for only $49 after instant rebate starting on Friday. If you want to wait a little bit, starting on June 1st MetroPCS will be offering the LG Stylo for only $199 after instant rebate.

Finally, if you already have a prepaid phone from one of MetroPCS’s competitors like Virgin or Boost, you can switch to MetroPCS and receive a free smartphone like the Leon LTE or getting a $50 discount on some of the higher end devices. MetroPCS is also re-launching their 4×100 offer. The 4×100 deal is for consumers that are looking for a multi-line package as it provides four lines for $100 per month. The package includes unlimited talk and text and 2GB of 4G LTE service per data line per month.
