LG V30+ available in the US exclusively from Sprint, BOGO deal incoming

LG confirmed it will bring its new V30 flagship in the United States early next month, but it offered few details on the V30+ model. First off, let's clarify that the only difference between the V30 and V30+ models is related to storage. The former comes with 64GB expandable storage, whereas the latter has 128GB internal memory.

Sprint announced last month that it will carry the LG V30+, but didn't say it will be the only network operator in the US to offer the smartphone. Today, the carrier clarified that and confirmed it will be the only major US carrier to offer the LG V30+ at launch, beginning October 13.

The statement suggests that other carriers may pick up the LG V30+ at some point, but for now, Sprint is the only one that will offer it. The smartphone will be available for $38 per month with Sprint Flex and $0 down. Also, new customers can save $30 when they purchase the LG V30+ online while existing customers save $30 when they upgrade online.

Moreover, the carrier announced that for a limited time, customers who choose the LG V30+ with Sprint Flex will be offered a second lease on the carrier, which means that will only have to pay $38 per month for two phones.

On top of that, LG V30+ owners can also receive a Daydream View headset and a Top VR Content Bundle when they purchase the smartphone. This particular deal requires customers online, user's device to be set-up by December 31 and redemption completed by January 15, 2018.

Lease? So you have to return the phone to sprint after certain years?

Why can TMO have a similar promo? I would jump on a BOGO if they did it on the jump on demand program. My son needs a new line of service but I don't want to go e up my JOD.

I wonder if this will support t-mo's band 71 considering the likely acquisition/merger in a month+.

It's NOT exclusive to Sprint. You don't know how to read "PR speak". ;) They left so many holes in their claim, they might as well have said Sprint is the only U.S. carrier whose name starts with "S" that will sell the LG V30+ ! "Sprint will be the only MAJOR U.S. carrier to offer LG V30+ AT LAUNCH..." Key words are "at launch". And even "major U.S. carrier". The "carrier unlocked" versions will be released in November, several weeks AFTER launch. The LG US998 -- which is also the carrier unlocked version of the LG V30 -- is rumored to be sold by U.S. Cellular in the LG V30+ configuration. Well, U.S. Cellular is not considered to be "major" carrier. AT&T, Verizon, T-mobile and Sprint are the four "major" U.S. carriers. U.S. Cellular is very distant 5th, with less than 10% of even pitiful Sprint's customers: 1) AT&T Mobility: 142.5 million (Q2 2017) 2) Verizon Wireless: 136.2 million (Q2 2017) 3) T-Mobile US: 90.2 million (Q2 2017) 4) Sprint Corporation: 45.7 million (Q1 2017) 5) U.S. Cellular: 4.0 million (Q2 2017) And the other major carriers (AT&T, T-mobile, Verizon) can then release the LG V30+ anytime in November and December (if they wish) and it will be "AFTER launch". (Verizon in particular likes re-releasing a phone in different colors, etc. I can easily see them releasing a V30+ in different colors in time for Christmas promotions.) Sprint's so-called exclusive is if you buy in October when all the U.S. MAJOR carriers are launching the LG V30. If it was truly exclusive they wouldn't have said "at launch". They would have said "exclusive" -- PERIOD. And they wouldn't have qualified with "major U.S. carrier". Because U.S. Cellular could start selling the LG V30+ in October and Sprint's PR speak would still be true. If Sprint's own press release doesn't say that ONLY Sprint has the LG V30+ in the U.S., then trust me it's NOT exclusive.
