WILL TO TRY CRAIGSLIST? NOTE THESE STEPS....

Okay everyone, I wanted to share with you another SD way to get this phone in the $350 range.

Right now there's tons of these phones floating around craigslist. LG has been giving all t-mobile front line employees a huge discount if they buy them through their employee affiliated corporate website for $250 plus tax. They are dumping them all over swappa and craigslist.

Option A: If you know someone that works for t-mobile and depending on how well you know them they might be willing to buy it for you if you could make it worth their while if you throw some extra cash their way. You might be lucky and walk away with one for around $300.

Option B: Look at the tmo G4 ads on your local craigslist site. Here in Phoenix there were easily 3-5 sealed ones ready to sell over the last week two weeks or so. Get in touch with them and let em know know that the phone can be had for $432 with the coupon code and not forgetting the extra LG promotional add ons that qualify with it. Counter them with an offer and inquire if their phone has been paid in full and if they can provide a receipt. This is when they tell you that they bought it straight from LG for a corporate discount as a t-mo employee. Let them know you're aware of that promotion and you're ready to buy right way as long as they show you a proof of purchase.

In my experience over the last week and a half or so that I've been seriously looking at buying this phone- I've had serious counter offers in the $340 - $380 range. All sealed phones. I'm vary wary of Craigslist although my limited experience buying a few things has been positive so far. I finally bought the sealed brown leather back version today for $350 once I found the right seller who was willing to go through the strictest requirements I had to verify proof of purchase and that the phone has been paid in full before I completed the transaction.

1) I made the seller agree to bring the LG online receipt confirming that the phone was paid in full. I made sure the full name on the receipt matches the full name on the ID and verified the picture on the ID matches the person in front of me.

2) Next we walked into the neutral t-mobile store we agreed to meet at and had a sales person there verify that the phone's IMEI is clean and that there were no blocks on it. I got there a bit early and talked to a sales rep I picked out and gave him a heads up of what I wanted to do and he said he would take care of me and he did. I mentioned a neutral store earlier because I didn't want any of his colleagues doing this important check at his own store instead of someone completely unbiased.

3) This one is critical. Next make sure that you have the store rep look at the seller's account and see if he has a G4 registered in his name. This request has to verbally come from the seller as there are account privacy rules involved. The store clerk carefully checked his ID with a black light and verified his identity before beginning to do that. Mine didn't so that made it easy. If he had one I would have made sure that whatever G4 he had on his account wasn't on EIP or had insurance. This is for your piece of mind that you won't encounter any problems further down along the road as we've all heard people's horror stories where their phones were remotely turned off due to non payments turning them into paper weights. If he had another G4 registered on his account and even it was paid off I would have had him sign a notarized bill of sale as a backup.

I hope this helps a few of you out there and don't mind a bit of creative leg work to get the SD outcome. There's enough t-mo reps looking to make a bit of extra cash out there and enough of us who don't want to pay retail so it's a win win for all of us.

Oh by the way, my seller paid $271 after taxes so he cleared $80 for 20 minutes of work so not too shabby. We've talked of more future collaborations with new releases so this might turn into a long term investment.....Smilie

'Hope this helps!

Boy, they're just trying everything they can to move these. Must be seeing disappointing sales. Extra $48 off, negates sales tax at least. Make sure to file the rebate for the extra battery, charger, and leather back if you buy before the 31st!

This is tempting but back ordered. Where do you put in the promo code? There is no place for it during checkout

They would do better with a properly marketed sale w/ simplified pricing i.e. G2 @$200, and G3 @$300, and G4 @$400. Would look something like this:

(L)et's (G)o Sales Event
Enough with promo codes, just buy our sh*t already. For a limited time, select the LG phone that's right for you:

G2 $199
G3 $299
G4 $399

Sounds about right to me...

Already bought one for $479 couple days ago. I guess there's no way to apply that $48 off code now?

Cheap plastic garbage prices dropping like a rock: check.

At least HTC, and now Samsung saw the light. LG's still stuck in the past with their legacy designs.

F**k me. Bought on release for $660 with taxes now less than 2 months almost $200 off. I did manage to get $60 bill credit when they dropped the price last week at least it was something plus the 128GB SD card (which I don't think you can get anymore) but still would of been nice for what $470 or less after taxes. The 128GB SD card and the Battery promo was only reason I jumped on it at release otherwise would of waited til now.

Last time I buy phone on release. I did finally get a good one on the 3rd phone but all of that I'm sure could of been avoided if I knew about the debloater program to disable the bloatcrap. Phone need rock soild with a huge battery bump after using it.

That's funny. Calling LG stuck in the past with their legacy designs and praising Samsung/HTC in the same argument.

I made a wise choice by buying the LG G4 on launch for $680 from t-mo and then returning it within days and back to my G3 (which is a rock solid phone)
This phone is just not worth the upgrade. UI absolutely sucks, slow and weird color themes. the screen still seems washed compared to samsung Note 3/S6 (G4 true color fluff is garbage).
The camera is fabulous but not worth the premium for upgrade.
Coming from a Nokia N70? you will be blown away...

Huh? Samsung.... the company that still uses buttons on the sides, plastic coated with solver paint that peels off, has now removed replaceable batteries and SD cards and still uses physical buttons that are uncomfortable on such large phones.... "saw the light"?

LG is pretty much the only one doing anything new. They moved to a replaceable battery/SD card with the G3/4, they are using rear volume/power controls that are much easier for many people and innovating stuff like laser focusing and tap-to-wake.
