T-Mobile has started taking orders for the LG V20 today, and it's offering some solid incentives to get you to buy. You can get at least $200 trade-in value for an old phone, and a free pair of B&O Play headphones worth $150. T-Mobile also points out the V20 will be the first phone to take advantage of the carrier's newly launched AWS-3 spectrum.
The V20 is LG's attempt to move past the G5 after that phone's modular accessory ecosystem failed to take off. This phone will cost $770 on T-Mobile. Monthly payments are available at $50 down and $30 per month for 24 months. It's a little cheaper than the Galaxy Note7, which I'm sure some people will be moving from. Trading in any working LTE smartphone gets you $200 or more in credit. The street date for the T-Mobile V20 is October 26th, so expect online orders to ship around then.
With the V20, T-Mobile becomes the first US carrier to deploy AWS-3 (band 66) spectrum. These bands are adjacent to the carrier's existing AWS-1 (band 4) spectrum and will offer additional capacity for LTE data. T-Mobile hasn't said where the new spectrum will be up and running, though.
