Tweet says LG G Flex is coming to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile

Tweet says LG G Flex is coming to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile
After getting launched in Korea on Tuesday, and outscoring the LG G2 in the GFX benchmark test, the curvacious LG G Flex is setting sail for the New World. At least, that is the speculation based on a tweet from evleaks who confirms that the flexible handset will be offered by AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. If evleaks is right, Verizon customers will be shut out.

The LG G Flex not only has that curvy form factor that bends in at the top and the bottom of the handset, it also features a self-healing back that repairs hairline scratches automatically. And when the device was unveiled late last month, there was talk about the phone having a very limited release. But soon, speculation arose that the LG G Flex was going to receive a global send off and evleaks' tweet has the handset coming to America.

The tweet didn't mention a price nor did it reveal a launch date. But for those statesiders who were hoping for a shot at the LG G Flex, it is the first sign that they will have an opportunity to purchase the flexible phone. That is, unless they are a Verizon customer in which case life has thrown them a curve.

I just got my LG G2 and I couldn’t be happier with everything except for one critical thing... that is the WiFi connection. My phone simply has a hard time staying connected or recognizing a WiFi. The message always reads “Temporarily Avoiding Poor Connection” and connection is not poor at all because I’m standing next to my modem. And sometimes connects fine and can stay connected for hours but most of the time not. Does anybody know the cure for that? I’m planning to go back to At&t to exchange it tomorrow. Thank you

I've had a T-Mobile G2 for a couple weeks now and haven't had that problem, you might just have a bad handset. So far I'm extremely happy with my G2 with only two minor gripes. First is the screen doesn't rotate 180 degrees, which doesn't makes sense when the headset jack is on the bottom. Second is Knock On doesn't work with custom launchers. Minor gripes, the G2 is an awesome handset. Custom UI is really a welcome change from Vanilla and I dig the buttons on the back, always where they are easy to reach while holding the phone. Wouldn't mind the self healing back like the Flex has though.

Flash CleanROM XE 2.0 It is a clean version based on the international rom for the AT&T variant. Its battery life is so much better, smoother, and less bugs. Do note that you will void your warranty by doing so.

go to wifi settings - Advanced wifi - uncheck wi fi signal weak. That should do it.

I really like the "Flex" part of the phone. One video shows that the phone itself is extremely flexible and made me uncomfortable when it bent as well and as far as it did down. Take note Sammy.
