Bellevue, Wash. — T-Mobile will be offering the LTE Android-powered LG Optimus F3 smartphone beginning Aug. 7.
The Optimus F3 will be available for a limited-time promotion price of $0 down with 24 equal monthly device payments of $10 with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan at participating T-Mobile retail stores, select retailers and online at T-Mobile.com.
The Optimus F3 features a 4-inch IPS display, a 5-megapixel camera and dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. Wi-Fi Calling capabilities, QuickMemo, QSlide and VuTalk are also features of this smartphone.
With T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan, Optimus F3 customers design their plan based on the number of lines and amount of high-speed data they want. Unlimited talk, text and web with up to 500MB of high-speed data is $50 per month (plus taxes and fees) for the first line, the carrier said.
T-Mobile noted customers can add another 2GB of high-speed data for $10 per month per line or get unlimited 4G data for an additional $20 per month per line. A second phone line can be added for $30 per month and each additional line is just $10 per month. There are no caps and no overages on T-Mobile’s network and no restrictive annual service contracts.
The Optimus F3 will connect to T-Mobile’s high-speed nationwide 4G HSPA+ and advanced 4G LTE coverage areas. T-Mobile’s 4G LTE coverage now reaches 157 million people across the U.S. in 116 metropolitan areas and is on target to go nationwide by the end of the year, with plans for reaching 200 million people in more than 200 metropolitan areas.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
