LG G6 is just $360 at AT&T, but you'll have to commit to a Next plan


LG's wish was fulfilled when the handset maker managed to out its flagship smartphone ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The LG G6 is already selling in the United States, as just about all the key carriers in the country offer the phone.

AT&T has a very tempting offer on the LG G6, which will expire at the end of this month. If you don't feel attached by Samsung's Galaxy S flagship, then you might want to take into consideration LG's new top-tier smartphone, the G6.

If you opt for AT&T's deal, you'll be able to grab the LG G6 for $360, but you'll have to commit to an AT&T Next plan or 24 or 30 monthly installments. Even so, you will only be paying $12 per month on the 30-month plan, or $15 per month on the 24-month plan, which makes this a great deal.

Keep in mind though that you will have to pay the sales tax, where applicable, for the full retail price when you buy the LG G6. Obviously, you must remain with AT&T for either 24 or 30 months, but you'll be saving 50% when purchasing LG's new flagship smartphone.

I'm pretty sure you can pay it off right away. So if you have $360 in remaining payments, you can just pay the $360 and keep the device.

Yes, you can do that.

Thats a negative ghostrider. The installments are credited 50% in a monthly bill credit. Not all at once. If you put 360$ Down. Then the credits will cover the entire remaining balance over 24/30.

It seems that you can pay the $360 to pay it off, but you must have it on your account for the remaining 30 months. At least according to AT&T. I think they just don't want people to pay it off and then cancel service, so you have to continue with your service.

Or the definition of a contract.

I understand what a contract is, thanks. I was just pointing out what you have to do in order to get the device for that particular price. With other AT&T Next devices they don't necessarily stipulate that you keep the phone on service if you pay off the entire device. I know this from first hand experience. But since this is a sale and they would lose money if people paid it off early and ran with it, they stipulate that you keep the account open for that many months.

The phone will be billed to you every month for 24/30 months for $30/$24 respectively. After your bill has cycled att will issue you a credit of either $15/$12 every month until the device is paid off. If you pay it off early, you'll be paying the remaining balance off full which starts at $720 and goes down as you pay your bill. There is no way to cheat this

It seems that way, but its the same as the BOGO offers. The full Retail balance shows as your installment and then you just get a bill credit. So, the EIP will show it at 720 financed on your bill, paying 30$ a month for 24 months, and you get a 15$ bill credit over those 24 months. If you were to go in to pay it off, it will only reflect what ever the balance out of 720 is remaining. Now, I heard you could pay the full balance remaining and still get the credits after the 2-3 month waiting period for them to start, but if you cancel at any time, you don't get the remaining credits. Its, as ACDC1A said, the evolution of the contract.

I work for ATT in the retail store. You get the credit every month on your bill. So if you go to pay off the device it will show the full retail cost. Once it is paid off you will not receive the credit anymore

I'm on trublackrose's side on this one, from the wording, seems like you can pay the $360, but you forfeit the rest of the bill credits if you cease service, etc.

Sorry. Would prefer to pay $500 on Swappa or Ebay for a comparable phone without the shackles. Either AT&T branded or unlocked; the unlocked phones get much better battery life I hear.
