Edit: Free shipping is still available, as is in-store pickup.

It's NOT unlocked to ANYTHING! Please don't bother asking.

This is a CDMA phone! AT&T T-Mobile are NOT CDMA!

The attached Ringplus APN fix can get your LG volt to pick up LTE 4G under CM12 system.
1, Register your LG volt and BoostMobile SIM at Ringplus, before turn it on.
2, power on the LG volt
3, rooted the LG volt, install TWRP
4, under the stock firmware, activated the phone and SIM at Ringplus,
5, update the PRL and provision under stock firmware,
6, tested the Ringplus LTE with the original BoostMobile SIM and stock firmware.
6, With TWRP, install CM12, GAPP and this Ringplus APN fix, reboot after each installation

7, CM12 , dialer, *#*#4636#*#*, phone information, to check mobile connection.

This can be rooted with CM11 and Slimkat as well

not sure about CM12

There's also a bloatware free version of the default bootmobile ROM out there.

Check the IMEI on the box with the Ringplus site before opening it. If it checks out OK, activate on Ringplus site first, then power on the phone. Don't let it activate on Boost first.

Using the Sprint version right now on RingPlus, solid phone. I keep my app installs light and it runs great.

I just came here to post it. OP: You beat me by a few minutes. Same price of popular Groupon deal that was dead within one hour.

Do I have to have the sim in to get 4G to work?
Is there a chance that I messed up and only got 3G to work?

Yeah, I just did that while on R+. After rooting you can also turn on wifi tethering to turn it into a hotspot.

Thanks. I'll be switching over to this on BF (free phone swaps for RP). Battery life on the Moto E was abysmal.
