*$99.99 with a new, two-year contract

AT&T isn’t the only U.S. wireless carrier to give LG some lovin’ when it comes to the G3 smartphone. Verizon Wireless will also carry the flagship smartphone, and is looking to undercut AT&T on pricing (on contract).
Whereas AT&T is selling the G3 for $199 with a two-year contract, Verizon Wireless is offering the smartphone for half that price: $99.99 with a new, two-year contract. The $99.99 figures mirrors Verizon Wireless’ pricing for both the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5.

For customers that prefer to buy the smartphone using Verizon EDGE, you’ll pay $29.99/month in addition to your usual monthly wireless charges. If you want to purchase the phone without a contract, you’ll be on the hook for the full cost of the device: $599.99.
Verizon Wireless is now taking pre-orders for the LG G3, and the phone will ship by July 17.

Is this an ad?

Is this an ad for Verizon/LG? Why is this important enough to make the news? Just curious.

Biggest carrier in the world, hot new flagship? They all get that same thing here. They did on on ATT a few days ago.

Anyhow, I am glad to see the US versions all have 32gb storage on the low end. That and SD is more than plenty.

You're joking right? We get 10 articles a week about some cheap $80 Nokia POS phone for poor countries, meaning NONE of Daily Tech's readership will likely ever own or be interested in one.

Hell we've gotten like 10 articles about that Nokia X nonsense that NOBODY thinks is even remotely compelling. I'm confident in saying that nobody reading Daily Tech will EVER buy that phone.

But a huge discount from a major US carrier on LG's newest flagship is an ad and NOT news??

Maybe because Verizon is the only carrier to plaster their gaudy logo on the front, marring an otherwise handsome piece of hardware?

As someone who is on contract with Verizon this among other things irritates me to no end. Verizon has nothing to do with the making if the LG 3, except for the exceptionally long Android validation process, yet slaps their logo on the front and back like they made the thing.

It seems like Apple is the only manufacturer with the clout or the balls to stand up to this practice.
