GSM only. Verizon and Sprint CDMA networks (and their MVNOs) are not useable.

Summary for the fearful:

- Phone is unlocked version LM-V350ULM, no need to wait 6 months, or 6 min. There is no V35 locked to Cricket. The info on their page is plain FUD.

- You do need the $55 plan no matter what. That's why the price is $205. No way around it.

- This is a prepaid plan. Meaning, unless you do something stupid like selecting recurring payments, you can do whatever you want with your card including nothing. I don't know when the card expires, maybe someone can fill this here.

- Regarding the porting. I actually wanted to port a number from tmobile that I no longer use (and tmobile makes it a pain to do it) and went through the whole process flawlessly. Except that I never installed the SIM. Guess what happened? I'm using the phone with tmobile from day one and that damn ported number is still with tmobile Mad Meaning the porting won't happen until you start using their SIM. Do whatever you want with this info.

- The phone has wireless charging!! Applause

- The phone appears to have band 71, but I can't check it because tmobile doesn't have band 71 in socal, AFAIK. But it is listed as one of the bands when I type 277634#*# on the LG dialer, not the google dialer.

- There is bloatware, but not as bad as in a Samsung.

- Even though it has quad DAC, the speakerphone itself is weak to me.

- I don't see a better tmobile phone for $200. If there is please let me know.

- If using on T-mobile, VoLTE and Wi-fi calling both work.

My Verizon works perfectly with this phone (no WI-FI calling)

there is a procedure where you dont need to use your number for this deal.
1. Buy a T-Mobile SIM card ICCID ONLY from this ebay site (https://www.ebay.com/itm/T-Mobile-SIM-card-ICCID-ONLY-DIY-a-new-account-number-for-port-out-FAST-24-... [ebay.com].
2. Generate your number with t mobile and port out the new numer to cricket.
3. Buy the phone from cricket and they will deliver it to you.
4. Since you are buying the 55$ prepaid plan your line will automatically close after a month if you dont continue paying the cricket bill.
5. You dont have to do anything with this number but this number can be used for a month including internet !


Edit 27 September: Please check the ebay link for the sim card. They described how you can activate the sim. Minimum plan is 10$ (it was 3$ before but t-mobile got our trick) from t-mobile. Thanks.

This is an EXCELLENT deal. You cannot buy a better cellphone for $250 new from reputable seller. Period. Maybe you don't like LG products but if you objectively look at this deal.... Processor, ram battery life. Cannot do better with that $.

You might want to check your credit card. Mine gives me something like 30 days of damage/loss/stolen protection on a new purchase.

Glad this deal is back. At this price this phone is an amazing deal. We are switching from Metro to Cricket and I got really unlucky in that I wanted to get this phone but this deal hadn't been posted until 2 days later when we'd already ordered the Moto G7 Power/Supra's for free with 2 lines for $80. Already spoke to Cricket and returning one of them and then getting the V35 for $150 is not a possibility. I still have a bit over two weeks until I can finalize the transfer so I don't lose 2 weeks of Metro service and I know Cricket give you 30 days to complete the port from your order date before it gets cancelled and you lose the service.

We have a roommate who's interested in joining our group plan and upgrading his old phone and we could give him the new G7 Power we got but to my understanding once you have an account with Cricket you have to wait 90 days from the 1st day of service/activation to be able to add a new line and get port-in pricing on it or is that incorrect? Anyone know if there's a way to get this in a situation similar to mine without losing the month of unlimited service? Thanks very much in advance. Smilie

If you don't want the service can you get around the port in?

I actually really like the V35 when I look at it compared to other LG phones, I think the v30 looks awesome, so having a phone with v40 specs but without the notch is a big win I think for those who want i.

Yeah. The only thing that sucks compared to the V40 is the screen is a good .4" smaller and the display's quality is a bit lower from reading the comparisons/reviews especially when it comes to brightness. Other downsides are it also has a 3.5% lower screen to body ratio and you lose Band 71 support on T-Mobile among a few other small things so don't think it's without its downsides because it's not.

Can anyone who bought the phone confirm if the IMEI turns up eligible for Sprint BYOD?

You cannot use this phone on Sprint. Period. The phone is unlocked and no carrier bloat or carrier branding. My phone automatically updated to Android 9.0 on June 2019 security patch over wifi.

Details state these could be locked for 6 months. You're saying they come unlocked?
