LG G2 launched by AT&T. Verizon and T-Mobile will have it soon, too
LG’s latest and greatest smartphone, the G2, is now available in the US – and AT&T is the first carrier to sell it.
For the moment, you can buy the G2 only online (here) at AT&T. In store availability is scheduled for September 13. As expected, AT&T is asking $199.99 for the LG G2 (new 2-yr contract required).
Verizon and T-Mobile have also announced launch dates for the G2. The handset will be released by Verizon starting September 12. Just like AT&T, the largest US mobile carrier will ask $199.99 for the G2.
T-Mobile’s LG G2 is expected on September 18. It “will be available for well-qualified customers for $99.99 down with 24 equal monthly device payments of $21 with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan.” Pre-orders are available starting today here. Another new LG smartphone from T-Mobile is the Optimus F6. This can be already purchased, costing $49.99 (plus $10 monthly for 2 years).
