T-Mobile and Sprint offer select LG devices for less under payment plans

T-Mobile and Sprint
On Friday, August 18, both T-Mobile and Sprint announced new summertime deals for customers right before the season comes to an end. If you’ve been eyeing an LG phone lately — particularly the LG G6 or the LG V20 — you could be in luck.

For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering both models on its Equipment Installment Plan. When you add a line as well, you’ll also receive another LG V6 or V20 for free after rebate. To receive the rebate, The Un-carrier is offering a prepaid MasterCard of up to $500 if you register on the T-Mobile Promotions Hub.

If you’re leaning toward the LG G6 which has a full retail price of $500, it’s available for $20 down and $20 a month in the Ice Platinum and Black color options. As for the LG V20 that normally runs for $480, the device is available for $0 down and $20 a month in Titan.

Over at Sprint, the carrier has dropped the monthly price for the LG G6 from $29.50 per month to $20 per month instead — under its Sprint Flex plan. The announcement comes one day after the company opened up pre-orders for the Essential Phone in black. For a limited time, the phone is 50 percent off its Flex Lease payments if you purchase the phone under the plan.

The Sprint Flex plan was introduced back in July, in order to provide customers with the latest smartphone without having to shell out a ton of money on the spot. After choosing a phone under the Flex plan, you can lease it for 18 months and exchange it for a new phone. If you’re set on keeping the one you already have, then you can pay it off completely in one installment instead.

T-Mobile and Sprint are slashing prices on its LG G6 and V20 only weeks ahead of the LG V30 launch. Rumored to be unveiled at the end of August or early September, there have already been a number of leaked images surfacing. Based on the renders, it’s very likely the device will be similar to the V20 but with minimal bezels and rounded edges instead. The V30 might also include a dual camera on top, fingerprint scanner on the bottom, and a metallic backing.

T-Mobile plans explained: 5G, pricing, and features
The T-Mobile logo on a smartphone.

T-Mobile carved a name for itself as the Un-carrier under the fearless (and eccentric) leadership of John Legere. Now a new CEO is in, but the company is still making waves -- whether by absorbing Sprint, launching the first nationwide 5G network, or creating a plan that does away with the concept of premium data.

Speaking of plans, T-Mobile offers a few -- and different plans may be better or worse for your needs, depending on what you're looking for. All of its postpaid plans now offer unlimited data, but it offers some solid prepaid plans that are worth considering, too.

T-Mobile’s new Magenta Max plan offers truly unlimited 5G data, 40GB of hot spot

T-Mobile is adding another phone plan to its lineup, and it's the plan you may want to go for if you're a heavy data user with a 5G-compatible phone. Why? The company says that it won't throttle users -- no matter how much data they use.

The new plan is called Magenta Max, and T-Mobile says it's the first plan to allow for unlimited 5G data use without being throttled based on how much data you use. Not only that, but you won't be limited in other ways either -- you'll be able to stream 4K video, and you'll get a hefty 40GB of hot spot data per month to share with other devices. (And of course, if you find yourself in a 4G-only area, you still get unlimited data.)

Old phones will stop working with AT&T and T-Mobile. Here’s what to do about it

While carriers are blowing their horns about the various 5G networks being rolled out across the country, there’s a bit of sleight of hand going on that will affect some long-time customers. The 3G network we used to use for voice calls is going away.

Some carriers, like AT&T and T-Mobile, are still using 3G for voice calls on older phones. Newer phones use 4G networking for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service. AT&T and T-Mobile intend to finally abandon 3G and switch entirely to newer network technology, and that will make some older phones obsolete.
