Nice phone so far, calling plus available out of the box.

Awesome!! Can't wait to get mine... FYI this phone requires a 15 Watt charging pad to get max wireless charging. There aren't very many 15 watt output pads available yet. I'm looking in to this. 

From what I read they will work fine with our 10 watt pads just at a slower wireless charging rate.

Please advise on what you find....

Interestingly it shows I can purchase with 2 year contract unlike any other phone on Sprint's website. Still $450..

I see that too and I am on the sero plan. But they want a $25/mo fee for a 2 yr contract.

EDIT: Just signed a 2 yr contract again for the lg v30+ for $450+tax+shipping = $490. If they start charging $25/mo on top, I'm out.

Stopped in at my local Sprint store after work yesterday to place my order. The assistant manager (only one in the place) didn't even know that the phone was released yet! Somebody needs to step up their marketing game if they expect to sell many phones.

Can't wait for delivery!:)

Keep us updated if you are.. Older plans should not have the surcharge however.

So far, I'm really enjoying the v30.

I really liked the Essential phone but lack of food cases and the need for more updates to polish the software put me off.... Great phone build but the software team is behind and the camera is terrible.

Just deleted all the Sprint bloat and this thing is smooth as butter.

Got my tracking number mine should be here Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Have you checked out the engineering mode on It? Looks like a ton of info based on screenshots and we can also lock band. Very useful for B26 hunting [emoji3]

Weirdly enough, Sprint only shows this device as 3G extended network only. Is that a glitch? Because I would think that it would work in Nextech territory and such where they use B25.
It showed that for the LG G6 initially too. Considering past LG devices going back to the G4 get full LTE roaming, I wouldn't be too concerned.

Let us know too how the display quality is. I've seen a few reports of inconsistent display quality.  Maybe the Sprint + variant is in a different batch.

From what I understand those reports are all from reviewers that had the pre-production phones. Hoping that issue isn't showing up in retail units.

Day 3 with the V30+ (I was lucky the Sprint Store I went to had 3 available) I'm noticing signal differences between this device and the U 11. (U11 a good 9dbm's better) Going to give it a few more days to see if things "even out". It's been my experience that devices tend to work better after a few days of being on the network. Again, IMO. Other than that the device is very nice, it's fairly lightweight, the screen is actually quite nice, pictures are great as well.

How well does it work at sites that have special QAM / MIMO ? A speed test from any of these would be awesome! Thanks

I'm going to return the phone... all sorts of radio issues where the phone won't move back to LTE and gets stuck on 3G even though there is super strong LTE signal... Also the reception is terrible compared to other devices

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
