LetsTalk is Selling the Verizon LG G2 at $29.99 for New Contracts, $79.99 for Upgrades (Updated)

Screen Shot 2013-09-13 at 12.09.03 PM

I don’t know why or if it’s on purpose, but LetsTalk is currently selling the brand new LG G2 from Verizon for $29.99 if you sign-up as a new customer, or $79.99 with an upgrade. That’s…umm…a crazy good deal. Verizon is offering the phone at $199, Amazon doesn’t have it yet, and other online dealers are only going as low as $149. How on Earth LetsTalk is able to sell this top tier phone at such a ridiculously low price is beyond me, but hey, we won’t complain.

At least one reader of ours was able to place an order, and so far hasn’t seen a cancellation or a “whoops we screwed up!” email. Cross those fingers. Then go order.

Update:  LetsTalk has now pulled the G2 listing. Let’s hope they at least honor orders that were placed.

Also, if you pop in promo code “letstalkpromo” during checkout, you could save an additional $5. As you can see from the screenshot, LetsTalk does free overnight shipping as well.

Cheers Cloud!

    I’ll be damned…Shipped today at that price (UPS tracking confirms)…very cool!

    So this will get Android 4.3 in january, and then never get updates again, right? Isn’t that how LG software updates work? (See: Optimus G (1))

  • Johann Lee

    if you ordered this phone, then check order status. my order went to need user feedback or something like that. but they didn’t put a phone number or anything to contact them.

    I called them and they did an address verification with my bank, and then asked me how long i lived at my current residence.

    finally, the order went thru.

  • ApplesNAndroids

    I’m sorry – while I LOVE the screen on this phone, it’s skin, general greasy feel, and awkward button layout make this phone ridiculous. Makes me appreciate my Moto X even more ;-)

  • jer85008

    I almost pulled the trigger for an upgrade on my other line. But even at $79 for the upgrade, just couldn’t do it. Something about this phone screams “I’m pretty now, but will be forgotten with no updates or dev support in 6 months”. I just don’t trust Verizon with this one. Would rather have a lower-spec MotoX that will be treated like gold by Google/Moto for the next year at least.

  • Clarky

    Must’ve gotten in under the wire. Got my confirmation….1:52 PST…thanks for the post Kellex. Very kind of you.

  • Terry

    Knew it was to good to be true! Hope the people that ordered one before they yanked it get it for that price, or letstalk is going to have some pissed off consumers….

  • new guy

    damit, just checked & it’s gone =-/

  • Str8Rippin

    It was just removed….

    • clobberedchina

      Yep.

  • Jared

    So back when the Gnex launched and I got it, there was a promotion verizon had to double your data for the same rate, so I pay $30 for 4GB of data which suits me well. If I get the G2 through lets talk, does anyone know if I keep the 4GB? under the plan selection there is only 2GB for $30.

    • DanielP

      I just finished doing my order, Gnex, 4GB and everything.

      I also talked to a VZW rep, he seemed to think that the 4GB would stay, just choose NO DATA PLAN.

      I think it’ll be fine.

      • Jared

        Cool, thats good to know. 4GB is just right for me, I really want this phone and this offer is too good to pass up. Hopefully it gets quick support from AOKP and Ill be a happy camper.

        • ApplesNAndroids

          My fiancé has a 4GB line (while I’ve been holding onto unlimited) when we go to upgrade her phone it allows her to keep the 4GB data plan.

  • DanielP

    Cancelled my Galaxy note 3 pre-order and ordered this. $75.99 and I’ll get it tomorrow? Yes please!

    • DanielP

      One day shipping doesn’t mean Saturday shipping it seems, going to be here Monday. oh well.

      Still an awesome deal! Thank you for posting this droid-life I never would’ve seen it otherwise!

  • Kaufkin

    Staples doesn’t like to PriceMatch web sites, but I’d bet if you printed that offer out (setup an order, just don’t press the final ok) and brought it into a store, and IF they had it in stock, you would have a decent chance of getting it matched. :-D #WhyWait

  • Nathaniel Newman

    Lets hope it’s that price when I have an upgrade in June of next year!

  • CapnShiner

    I bought my DX through Walmart and LetsTalk back in the day because they had a great deal and I soon regretted it. It was backordered but they didn’t tell me. The delivery date kept getting pushed back more and more and I didn’t end up getting my phone until almost 2 months later. Did they do anything, customer-service-wise to make up for that? Nope. You get what you pay for.

  • Ken

    Wow, what a deal!

  • Pedro4Prez
  • Frank Messner

    Stupid cheap price… Just pulled the trigger, $76 shipped. Hope this doesn’t get cancelled… Replacing my VZW Gnex. Here’s to hoping to use my phone for a full day of use without charging! Thanks for the post Kellex!

    • OneForTheGoodDays

      This is with pretty heavy use… i am so happy with it.

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        screen on time?

        • OneForTheGoodDays

          1h35m

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Eh not that heavy of usage. I’m used to 4+ hours on screen time

          • jose

            But still has over half battery life left.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            yes, a phone will have life if it’s not used

          • OneForTheGoodDays

            But keep in mind that I’ve been in super dodgy coverage areas.

    • Hoff16

      Thats why I got the Maxx. I don’t even have to think about battery anymore. I plug it in at night just for fun, My GNex would barely last half a day, my Maxx lasts at least a day and a half.

    • Trickie Tom

      Well, look into your State laws.. I know here in Wisconsin, a retailer must give the sale posted price, regardless it was an old promo and the POS was updated, but someone didnt pull the sale stickers.. Even if it was a mistake.. There are signs in our stores that they have to post to notify shoppers of the law.. They are usual hidden tho as businesses may not agree.. Ive held many stores to the posted/shelf price and have never had to bring up the law though. Not sure how that transfers over to online sales, but theres a good chance they have to give you that price.. If not, then I guess legal advice would be the next step.. And with the ease of connecting with people, a class action suit could be easy to achieve.

      Disclaimer – I am no where near a lawyer or even in classes to become one..

      • Frank Messner

        The good news is that I won’t have to worry about that since I spoke with customer service on Saturday to verify my order and it’s supposed to ship today (Monday).

        • charles rogers

          Nice! Glad you caught the deal.

      To quote the site:

      “Nexus 5到底会交给谁代工呢?之前有传闻称是摩托罗拉,当然也有消息说是LG,而现在韩国媒体再次给出的消息显示,五太子会花落LG。

      韩国媒体给出的消息称,LG前不久推出了G2,而这款新旗舰是在Nexus 5的外形上演变而来的,两者虽然外形相似,不过配置确不一样,因为Nexus 5要延续Nexus 4的高性价比,所以前置不会配备骁龙800处理器,但是会保留1080p屏(5寸+应该也没啥疑问)”

      What’s funny is I was just saying the exact same thing the other day!

  • ScottM

    Looks like it’s 5% off, not a $5 discount with letstalkpromo code. Comes out to $4 off.

  • cheese

    Can’t wait to join y’all on T-Mobile.

    Nexus 5 + T-Mobile prepaid plan = WIN

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      It needs to hurry up

    • Andy

      this will work on ATT?

    • fritzo2162

      Does anyone actually win on TMobile’s network? :D

  • htowngtr

    Probably can’t add or change anything to your plan for 6+ months.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      This is likely 100% true. But that’s the way it is with all these online dealers.

      • jer85008

        Wirefly will let you transfer your upgrade to another line on your account – just like Verizon and Amazon. Let’stalk will not.

    • Kevin

      Does that mean I couldn’t line swap? I have unlimited and my dad has a dumb phone we could upgrade, but he just wants his dumb phone back so would we not be allowed to cancel the data for 6mo?

      • htowngtr

        From what I remember you can’t modify ANYTHING or else you pay the difference.

        • Kevin

          Hmm dang…guess I’ll look into the 30% code then. Thanks for the heads up

        • Trickie Tom

          Not only that, but if anything changes on the Unlimited side, other than a swap’d phone that was bought outright, it will cause you to lose unlimited.. Even if I wanted to add more mins to my plan or change the amount of texts on my line, I would lose the unlimited, as there is no equivalent plan, so there-for a new contract. Its as touchy as the old Alltel accts they took over.. My mom just finally had to move over to a Verizon plan a year or two ago.. Prior she was getting old CDMA dumbphones from family members that upgraded to Verizon that had no use for their Alltel phones.. What finally caused the switch was lack of Alltel branded phones..

  • jojo

    Hey does anyone know how to take a screenshot with this phone. Really liking it. The g2x method for screenshot doesn’t work.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Power + Volume down.

      • Bigwavedave25

        So… can you do that with only one finger? ;)

      • dannyWHITE

        Or you can just use quick memo.

  • Steve Ballmer

    Great deal but too bad I’m not a fan of the device. Definitely a steal for those looking to get it.

  • NexusPhan69

    Hmm. I could open a new line, buy this phone for $25, cancel my contract on day one. Pay the $375 cancellation fee, sell the phone and make a cool $200 bucks to buy me a Nexus 4. I might do this just so say F you Verizon.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Lol sounds like a great plan. Except for the fact that if you cancel you also owe Let’s talk another $350 or so.

      • NexusPhan69

        Why would I owe both Verizon and Let’s talk money?

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          mog386 above explained it. You have to stay on that contract for atleast 6months. Same goes for any 3rd party

          • NexusPhan69

            Ya I saw. Man I hate contracts. I’m glad that’s all done with for the rest of my life.

          • mog386

            Not planning on getting married then, are ya? :P

          • NexusPhan69

            Haha. I should start thinking about drafting a prenup. I wish I could have written one for Verizon.
            “If I switch to your network, Verizon, to get the GNex and subsequently determine that you are all that is evil and awful I can leave without being raped on the way out with fees.”

          • Trickie Tom

            A prenup, thats just a contract on top of a contract.. Didnt you say this..

            “. Man I hate contracts. I’m glad that’s all done with for the rest of my life.”

            Btw, im just busting balls, no hate.. :P

          • NexusPhan69

            Haha. Touche Sir.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Marriage is a waste of time and money. Plus, who want’s one woman the rest of their life.

      • dd

        $250 from Let’s Talk… 1st condition on their T&C

    • mog386

      Yeah except for the fact that when you go through a 3rd party retailer like LetsTalk they have their own termination fee. Which is usually equal to VZWs. So you will be paying $350+$350 in ETFs.

      • NexusPhan69

        Really? Wow. That’s intense.

        • dannyWHITE

          Yes, most non corporate stores have this second agreement that they usually dont mention. Trust me, I uses to work at one.

          • NexusPhan69

            It just makes my feeling toward my switch to pre-paid that much better.

          • Trickie Tom

            if when I lose my Unlimited data; not by my own choice as I will be buying phones outright going forward, I too think I would go the route of a pre-paid provider that uses Verizon and has Unlimited data. I love Verizons network, never have really had any issues, but I refused to pay upwards of 75-100 bucks for data on my phone.. Yes, I use alot of data, and No I do not tether or download torrents or crap w/ my phone.. I listen to music and podcasts about 20hours a week.. If not more.. Im on the go alot.

        • mustbepbs

          Always read the fine print! Wirefly does this too.

        • dannyWHITE

          Usually your not allowed to change anything on that line for at least 6 months.

        • Ian

          Did some fine print reading, looks like its $250 for LetsTalk

    • cheese

      if you have an unlimited data line, you can do an AOL (assumption of liability) and hand over your contract to someone who wants to take it over. That way you won’t be responsible for the remainder of your contract.

      I’m saying unlimited data because that’s highly coveted for a lot of people.

      https://businessportals.verizonwireless.com/support/faqs/Billing%20and%20Account/faq_liability_assumption.html

      • d-rock

        Are you sure VZ allows this? Especially since MOST unlimited users aren’t technically on contract. The AOL is for contract responsibility transfers.

        I’d be very surprised if they did allow it.

        • Tim242

          They will allow it, but requires 2 year contract to go with it.

        • instrument

          I think a great deal are on contract because they bought the gs3.

      • JayOne

        How does one go about shopping for someone selling their unlimited contract AOT?

        • instrument

          ebay, seen em go for 400

      • Jonathan Williams

        Who saw AOL and thought America Online like I did?

    • Tim242

      There’s a huge problem with that plan. They charge a cancelationfee, on top of Verizon’s.

  • litobirdy

    wow if I didnt’t have unlimited data I’d be ALL OVER THAT-

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      *Truly Unlimited

      • litobirdy

        Yes Truly Unlimited
