When and where can I get the LG V30?

The LG V30 is one of the most interesting devices of the year so far. It's got a big, near-bezelless design that eschews many of the design characteristics of its predecessors, the V10 and V20, but maintains their focus on high-quality audio and unique camera features.

While the phone was announced in late August, it's only being released, and we've got the latest information on where you can buy the V30.

Let's break it down individually by country and carrier.

Updated October 13, 2017: This article has been updated to reflect Sprint and T-Mobile availability, plus new deals.

U.S. carriers

T-Mobile

T-Mobile is now selling the V30 starting at $80 down and $30 per month for 24 months, or an outright cost of $800. Like Sprint, you also get a free Daydream View and content pack with purchase.

The V30 is T-Mobile's first phone to support its nascent 600Mhz spectrum, which will give the phone better performance in low-density rural areas.

T-Mobile is offering a pretty great deal for the V30, too: buy a phone on a new or existing line and get a $500 rebate when purchasing a second V30 with a second new line. When buying with an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), users get an LG G Pad X or G Pad X2 PLUS for free with purchase.

AT&T

The V30 is now available at AT&T online and in-store. It costs $27 per month for 30 months on AT&T Next, or $810 in total. AT&T has a deal for a "free" second V30, but there are a lot of conditions:

"For a limited time, buy an LG V30 and get one FREE when you add a line and buy both on AT&T Next with monthly eligible wireless and have eligible DIRECTV service."

It works on the company's so-called 5G Evolution network, which is equivalent to the fastest 4G LTE speeds today. That's because the V30 takes advantage of new technologies like 4x carrier aggregation, 256QAM modulation, and 4x4 MIMO antenna placements, as well as unlicensed spectrum standards like LTE-U and LAA.

Verizon

The LG V30 is now available at Verizon for $35 per month for 24 months, or $840 outright. Verizon is giving away a $200 prepaid credit card and a free Google Daydream View with every purchase, which is nice.

Sprint

Sprint is one of two U.S. carriers selling the LG V30+, which is the 128GB version of the regular LG V30. It's now available for $0 down and $38 per month for 24 months, which works out to $912 outright. Like AT&T, users signing up for a second account and service will get a second LG V30+ for free.

Sprint is going deep on the V30+, too. It's offering a free Daydream View headset and "Top VR content bundle" with every unit, and is the only carrier bundling LG's QuadPlay earbuds in the box.

US Cellular

U.S. Cellular is the second carrier selling the LG V30+, but unlike Sprint, it also sells the standard V30. The regular V30 costs you $19.50/month on a 30-month installment plan, or you can choose to pay a prepaid price of $799.99. As expected, the V30+ is slightly more expensive at $21.16/month or $849.99 on prepaid.

No matter if you purchase the V30 or V30+, U.S. Cellular will also throw in a free Daydream View headset and Top VR Content Bundle similar to what Sprint is offering.

U.S unlocked

LG hasn't said when it's going to begin selling an unlocked V30, but on its U.S. website it does say that an unlocked version is coming soon, and will be sold at Amazon and B&H as well.

It's not clear at this point how much the unlocked version will cost, but I'd put my money at around $749 given that LG tends to sell the unlocked version of its phone slightly cheaper than the carrier equivalents.


Canada

On October 12, LG Canada announced that the LG V30 would be available in Canada starting October 20.

It will be sold at Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Fido, Koodo, and Freedom Mobile. While pricing hasn't yet been released, the MSRP will be around $1100 CAD.

Other countries

Right now, besides South Korea, all we know is that the V30 will be available "this fall in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East." That's good news given that the V20 didn't get a wide release outside the U.S., so it's nice to know that LG's best phone ever will get its widest possible release — and a chance for success.

Stay tuned for more purchase details for the V30 in the coming weeks!
