T-Mobile starts taking LG G5 orders, while AT&T begins shipping handsets
A selection of major US carriers have been accepting pre-orders for the new LG G5 flagship for a while now, and T-Mobile has now finally started taking sales of its own. To convince you to part with your cash, T-Mobile is also throwing in a free spare battery and charging cradle, along with a LG Friends 360 Cam.
There are some timing conditions attached to those offers though. The free battery and charging cradle are up for grabs until April 17th, but you can only nab the free 360 Cam, which usual retails for $200, until April 5th.
As for the price, T-Mobile is selling the G5 for $629.99 if you buy the handset up front, which is a little more expensive than some of the company’s past flagship releases. If you would prefer to break that down into monthly payments, you can pay $26.25 over a 24 month period. You will have to stump up an extra $20 for a SIM Starter Kit too. T-Mobile is offering the LG G5 in your choice of either silver or gold color options.

Given that we are just a couple of days away from the April 1st launch, your T-Mobile order should begin shipping out almost right way. However, AT&T customers look to have a head start with this launch, as the handset has apparently already begun shipping out to customers who pre-ordered their LG G5 with the carrier. AT&T pre-orders could be arriving in consumer hands as early as today, a couple of days before the phone goes on sale in stores up and down the country.
Have you already ordered your LG G5, are you waiting to try it out yourself, or is the phone note quite what you’re looking for?
