T-Mobile will start selling the LG G4 tomorrow, 128 GB microSD card included
T-Mobile just announced that its LG G4 will go on sale tomorrow, May 27, when the handset will also start shipping to customers who've pre-ordered it. Tomorrow is when the G4 will be available from T-Mobile only online, with sales through retail stores expected to start on June 3. Even so, it looks like T-Mobile will be the first major US carrier to actually release the G4 (though Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are also going to do it in the near future).

T-Mobile will offer the new LG flagship smartphone for $0 down and $24.99 monthly payments over 24 months, or for $599.76 outright. Interestingly, customers who are buying the G4 from T-Mobile will get a 128 GB microSD card for free, while supplies last. Those who buy the handset elsewhere will also get a free microSD card, but only a 32 GB one.

As a reminder, T-Mobile is the only US carrier to sell the "genuine brown leather" variant of the G4. If leather isn't your thing, the carrier also has a metallic gray G4. Make sure to read our LG G4 review if you haven't done it yet - it should help you decide if you want to buy the smartphone or not.

So after paying $24.99 a month plus the monthly cost of the cellular plan plus taxes and fees added to the monthly plan, then the person buying this phone will spend between $2000.00-$2400.00 in the first 2 years. Like the old saying goes "There is a sucker born every minute"

No it's 24x25dollars. No other extra costs.

You would buy a phone and not pay for monthly service? I wouldn't do that.

And your point is? Verzion costs more. Cricket is crap and almost everyone spends lots of money for smartphones and plans.

You were expecting the phone & service to be free? I guess the only choices for you are the Obama phone or talking a walkie talkie

What's it to you? Its not like anyone is forcing you do buy one. Just go buy a moto E and some cut rate prepaid plan and you'll be good to go.

the dumbest comment I have seen yet, you expected to not pay for service?, buy the phone out right don't finance it. the phone has no interest while being finance as well so you are paying the full price of it anyways. the monthly service is cheaper than most of the competition, pick any other carrier and do the math of how much you pay for service and you will know they are more expensive. keep your old saying to yourself.

I think he was trying to sign up for the Obama phone.

technically it is the Bush phone, the provisions to allow the free mobile phones was signed by Bush before Obama took office, it just didnt take full effect until Obama was in office.

@bundlepack T-mobile is over $1,000 cheaper than ATT/VZW. T-Mobile = $2,520 ($80/mo * 24)+600) ATT = $3,560 ($140/mo * 24)+200) Verizon = $3,560 ($140/mo * 24)+200) Based on the following: 2 year period 10 GB Data for ATT/VZW Unlimited Data for T-Mobile Purchase price of LG G4 $600 on T-Mobile Upgrade fee for LG GF $200 on ATT/VZW

And it's half the service of vzn/AT&T.. I'll pay more for far better coverage.

Hm. Verizon plan right now is $15 Access + $80 (10GB) = $95 / Month. They don't have a price on the G4 yet but if I had to guess it will be 24.99/month on Edge / $599 Full retail. If you add the price of Edge payments in that's $2880 over 24 months without taxes and could even be cheaper if you have a work discount off the $80. Maybe I'm wrong but that's what I get. Your math doesn't add up to me.

I see with signing up through EDGE they lowered the access by $25/mo for a limited time. I'm glad they are lowering prices. The price was normally $120/mo and now it's down to $95.

You do realize that's up to $75 a month for the service you would be paying for anyway right? $25 a month for 24 months = $600 phone. I fail to see how that's any different than paying full price.

The price of the phone under installment plan is tacked onto the service bill whatever it may be. You have to make a down payment and pay the sales tax for the full value of the phone right up front when you sign up for the device payment plan. The service contract varies as the plans have varied over the years and older plans are grandfathered in. If you have good credit your APR on the device plan is 0%. You don't pay any more for the phone via payment plan as you would purchasing outright. You can pay it off at any time you want and the payment plan is a minimum payment- you can increase your payment to pay it off faster.

Says the guy cruising through the cell phone articles. Saying that people pay for cell phone service is irrelevant since they are going to do that anyways if they own a cell phone.

bur60 If you buy the phone you also have to pay for the monthly service to make calls and send text messages etc. So the total cost will be more than just the price of the phone itself. I made that point clear in my initial comment

Does that not apply whether you keep your old phone or get a new one?

I have the G3 and since the lollipop update I have had nothing but issues. I am less than thrilled with the G4, not to mention I had an incident with LG Support over a 2 month old LG LED TV. I am so turned off to this company its not even funny. Needless to say, my new T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes tomorrow to replace this sad crappy G3.

I almost bought a LG led TV but couldn't do the 1080p thing for that price so I jumped to the hu9000 4k TV by Samsung. Couldn't be happier but still love the contrast on led is amazing

Samsung is simply a better quality product. Anything LG I have owned is problematic. As for the LG LED- the HDCP failed on the HDMI port after 2 months. They refused to replace it. My LG G3 went to hell in an hand-basket after a few updates and then Lolipop. I am just so done. I am looking forward to my Galaxy Note 4 so much.

I have the Note 4 on T-Mobile. It's a great phone but not without it's problems. Since the lollipop update its been very laggy and kinda slow. And in all honesty the Note 4 is like having a Swiss army knife when you just need to cut something. A lot of stuff you will never use. The S pen is cool but you will have to make your self use it. Fingerprint sensor useless. Quick charge overrated. And IM tired of touch wiz. IM going to trade mine in fro the LG G4. I need 3 things in a phone. Great screen, Great camera and a solid UI. It seems to have what I need. Good Luck.

Since lollipop my note 4 is even faster.

I plan on keeping mine on KitKat for now. Like the LG G3 the Note 4 has a report of 50% of user claiming its better and 50% of users claiming its worse. Im excited and nervous because I dont know what to expect. My friend at work has a note 4 and its awesome and she loves it. I have not owned a Samsung since the Gravity Smart that I had in 2011. I have two weeks to see if I like the Note 4 or not. TMobile gives two weeks where you can return it and not be obligated to the device payment plan.

Does anyone know if it is possible that I just pay the full price for the phone and bring it to at&t? So two questions actually. First, can I purchase the phine without service if I am paying the full price? Second, if I am able to, can I use it on att directly or do i need to unlock it? Thank you guys in advance!

You can not purchase the phone without a plan. If you purchase with a plan you are bound to the plan for the remorse period (30 days) before you can cancel. The other problem is, it is NOT a good idea to bring a TMobile branded device over to AT&T (well first of all, it needs to be unlocked) because the bands are different. T-Mobile uses the 700 for 4g. AT&T does not. More than likely 4g will not be an option if you take the device over to AT&T.

Well... I am sold... I am getting the LG G4... Badass camera, removable battery, MicroSD and around $600... Since I am going to keep my next phone for 2 or 3 years... The G4 is the easiest choice!
