The LG G3 release is upon us

The LG G3 is a major improvement over the LG G2, with boosted specs and a nice metallic finish. In fact, it's one of the nicest Android phones ever released.

That means you're going to want to get your hands on it, regardless of which carrier you currently have a contract with.

Lucky for you, all four major US carriers have announced availability for the newest LG flagship.

Here's where, when and for how much you can get the LG G3.


T-Mobile was the first to announce an LG G3 release date, and the phone went up for pre-order on Big Pink at the beginning of July.

Given that T-Mobile hates contracts as much as you do you're going to be paying for it - try $599 for the top-end version. But even at the steep price, 3GB of memory and 32GB of storage might make it worth it.

You can also pay it off in 24 monthly installments of $24.95, for a total of $598.80 (save a penny, right?).

T-Mobile also gets the unique "Titan Grey" color. The LG G3 shipped from the Un-carrier starting July 15 and arrived in stores the following day.


Next comes AT&T, which was the second carrier to throw in for a LG G3 release date, despite rumors about Verizon taking it first.

But AT&T's LG G3 actually came out first - July 11 in stores and on doorsteps.

Unsurprisingly AT&T is selling both the "Metallic Black" and the "Silk White" LG G3 for $199 with a two-year contract, $24.17 a month on an 18-month Next plan, or $29 a month on Next 12.

AT&T's official G3 listing specifies 3GB of memory and "up to 32GB" of storage, so it seems the carrier also got the higher-end variant.

It should be noted that AT&T is also offering the LG G Watch for half-off to users who pick up the LG G3 on-contract.


Those rumors turned out true, and Big Red shipped the LG G3 on July 17 - just after T-Mobile. The phone went up for pre-order on July 10.

Verizon does have one advantage: it's selling both colors of the G3 for just $99 with a two-year contract, a full $100 cheaper than AT&T's deal.

Alternately, Verizon customers can also get the LG G3 for 20 monthly payments of $29.99, or almost exactly $600.

And Verizon customers also get the 32GB/3GB version of the G3. As an added bonus, the G Watch is up for order at Big Red as well.


With no pomp and circumstance, Sprint launched the LG G3 in stores and online July 11, a full week before it was thought to be arriving.

And the Framily plan carrier scored an exclusive "Shine Gold" LG G3, making it the envy of everyone, we're sure.

The LG G3 can be yours for $25/month for 24 months and $0 down with Sprint Easy Pay, or $199.99 on a two-year service agreement. Unlimited Framily plan deals for the LG G3 start at $45/month.

For a limited time, Sprint is also offering $150 when you get the G3 using Easy Pay. If you buy the phone after July 24, you'll get $100 cash rewards between then and August 14.

The straight-up price of the LG G3 on Sprint is $599.99.


The maker of the Fire Phone is selling the LG G3 in a number of configurations, and you'll find versions available for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.

An on-contract device runs at the low price of $99, though you can pay for the full cost of the phone (over $500) for the G3 off-contract. Free shipping is offered as well.

US Cellular

US Cellular, the fifth-biggest US carrier, has yet to announce anything regarding the LG G3.

That combined with the fact that the carrier never offered the LG G2 could indicate that US Cellular won't carry the G3 at all.
