No one likes to be last. The LG G2 was originally slated to become available online from T-Mobile on September 18th, nearly a week after competitors Verizon Wireless and AT&T were to start offering the handset.

FCC (Or LG) Royally Screws Up, Publishes Photos Of Next Nexus Phone Under Listing For Verizon G2

LG made a last minute amendment to the documentation for the Verizon edition of the G2 yesterday, which is model number LG-VS980. No big deal, right?
