[Deal Alert] LG G Watch Again Only $50, Except This Time It's Refurbished And On eBay

The LG G Watch was one of the Android Wear launch devices, and even then it didn't feel like the best smartwatch for Google's wrist-bound platform. That has definitely changed in the year since.

But the thing just keeps going on sale. AT&T has sold the watch for a mere $50 more than once. Now you can snag one for the same price as an eBay daily deal.

The LG G4 Should Now Be Available Across All The Major US Carriers—AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, And Verizon

LG showed off the G4 at the end of April, we posted our review a couple weeks later, and we've spent the time since then waiting for the time when folks here in the US can pick the phone up from their network of choice. Availability and pre-orders have trickled out gradually, and now we've reached a point where the phone should be on sale across all five of the country's largest carriers.

PSA: The LG G4 Does Not Support Qi Or PMA Wireless Charging Out Of The Box, You Will Need To Buy A Special Case

Sad as it may be, if you've been hearing that the G4 has wireless charging right out of its shiny new box, unfortunately that just isn't true. LG went on the record with us to state that no version of the G4 will be shipping with wireless charging as a standard feature, and that you'll need to buy one of the company's Quick Circle covers if you want to get your battery those sweet, sweet electrons via induction. Here are the specifics.

Almost every G4 sold around the world will support Qi wireless charging - once you buy the Quick Circle case.

[Deal Alert] Get A Brand New Unlocked AT&T 32GB D850 LG G3 For $340 On eBay With Free Shipping

Do you want the new LG G4? Well, go call dibs. That's not what this post is about. We're gathered here to talk about the G3. It's still a good phone. Only now, due to planned obsolescence, it's becoming a cheaper one. On eBay, you can get an unlocked GSM model for a pretty reasonable $340. This is the 32GB model, which AT&T still sells for $450.

These are new units, not refurbished ones. They're intended for use on AT&T's network, but you can take them to other GSM carriers, though T-Mobile customers may find that some bands don't quite match up.

LG G Watch R Starts Disappearing From The Google Store And Online Retailers, Is Effectively Discontinued

In with the new, out with the old. That seems to be LG's mantra when it comes to Android Wear watches. No sooner does the company announce and release a new model than it starts winding down production on the previous one, then completely stops it. That's the case of the G Watch R, or the GWAR as we lovingly referred to it here on Android Police.

The Google Store's listing for the G Watch R now shows this message: "This product is unavailable in your country," and its support page only currently lists it as sold in Australia whereas it used to mention Japan and the United States before.

LG Releases Its Long Promised Bootloader Unlock Tool, But It Currently Only Supports The G4 For The EU Open Market (H815)

Many moons ago, LG had promised the release of an official bootloader unlock tool for its G3, but the company didn't make good on its word. It seems that the plans were never forgotten though, because LG's Developer site got a new "Unlock Bootloader" page that does just that, except it's not for the G3 (yet).

While bootloader unlocking is quite easy on Nexus devices, almost all other Android phones and tablets suffer from tightly locked bootloaders that require a bit of tinkering to get access to. Both Sony and Motorola actively try to help developers achieve unlock (and there was a time when HTC did so too), but owners of other brands are usually left on their own - free to roam the forums and try to find a method that works, or to use Sunshine if it's compatible.

If You Really Want WiFi On Your LG G Watch R, There's Now A Mod That Enables It

If you have an LG G Watch R, you're probably aware of the Wi-Fi drama following Android Wear 5.1.1's release for the watch. While Google had announced Wi-Fi support for the platform's update in general, it turned out that the G Watch R didn't have the certifications necessary to boast that function, although technically the hardware was very capable of it. LG then let us know that it's working on a patch to enable Wi-Fi (and presumably on getting all the right certifications) but that it wouldn't be released before July.

Not to let some paperwork get in the way of gadgetry, Vojtěch Boček managed to have Wi-Fi working on his LG G Watch R after flashing some files over from the Watch Urbane (which has the same hardware, but currently supports Wi-Fi). The details of the mod are available on XDA, but they aren't for the faint of heart.
