LG G2 on Verizon Gets Lollipop Today, Your G3 Still Can’t Have It

The LG G2 on Verizon is receiving an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop beginning today. I said “G2” not “G3.” That was on purpose, because this really is the G2 we are talking about and not the much-newer, less glossy, G3. The update is a big one that is talked about at length in a 6-page document posted by Verizon. We included all six pages below to quench your curiosity.  (more…)

Deals: New Unlocked Moto X Developer Edition or LG G2 for $199 and $189

If a phone is almost two years old, but can be had for an insanely cheap price, is it worth considering? Maybe as a device to tinker with? Maybe as a phone for a teenager? Maybe you broke your current phone and need something to hold you over until the Galaxy S6 drops? Or maybe you just like hoarding smartphones. Whatever the reason, we have two to look at today – Moto X (2013) Developer Edition at $199, and the LG G2 at $189.

Both phones come unlocked and should work just fine on AT&T with 4G LTE. Each is brand new, comes in original packaging, and were two of the best smartphones of their time when initially released in 2013. Still today, they should perform just fine for an average user.

Each phone also comes with free shipping. Think about it.

Verizon uploaded new support documents that include this new software version, but the changelog appears to be identical to the changelog that came back in September when the phone was prepped for VoLTE. That software update was VS98025B(more…)

T-Mobile LG G2 Receives Update, Brings Free Inflight Texting Support

An update is rolling out to the G2 from LG on T-Mobile, bringing T-Mobile’s free inflight texting feature, as well as Bluetooth connectivity improvements.

T-Mobile’s inflight texting feature allows customers to connect to a flight’s WiFi network, then send and receive text messages for free, which is a great feature if paying the ridiculous price for inflight WiFi does not suit you.  (more…)

Verizon LG G2 Receives Update to Get It Ready for VoLTE Launch

The LG G2 on Verizon is receiving an update today (version VS98025B) that prepares it for the company’s VoLTE launch, which should happen any day now. Verizon told us back at the end of August that we should expect the service to go live within the “coming weeks.” It has certainly been a couple of weeks. We exclusively reported that the LG G2 would be one of the first VoLTE devices, so the update arriving now makes perfect sense.

So what’s in the update?  (more…)
