    Rated 5 out of 5 by PLEASE MAKE CASES FOR THIS PHONE!!! This is my 1st smart phone and I got this one because I hate touch screens for texting. I hate that IPhones only have touch screen, and I like the keyboard so I got this one. I love the phone, it works well, but what bothers me, and I mean REALLY bothers me, is that there are NO CASES available for this phone anywhere beside the 2 plain ones T-Mobile offers which are just black and red!!! T-Mobile, please make a PINK case for this phone!! I am so mad, I bought this phone and was all excited to get a cute case for my first smart phone and there are NONE! So please make one in pink someone!!! There are cute cases all over the internet for every phone but this one and it's driving me nuts! I got my keyboard which I love but I had to settle for a plain black case and I hate it! Manufacturers out there please make some cute cases for this phone!!!! July 20, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by A Step Backward for QWERTY Sliders First, the LG Optimus F3Q is a clone of the LG Enact that's been available since July '13. The main differences are that the LG Enact is marginally better, featuring scratch-resistant glass and 8GB of internal storage whereas this device offers glass non-resistant to scratching and only 4GB of internal storage. In fact this device's display dimensions, screen resolution, pixel density, camera megapixels, internal storage capacity, and processor speed are all inferior to those of the Motorola Photon Q that's been available since July '12. To be fair the 2460 mAh battery is the one feature of the LG Optimus F3Q that does represent a significant improvement over two-year-old sliders like the Motorola Droid 4, Samsung Galaxy S Relay, and Motorola Photon Q. Alas, devotees of QWERTY sliders will have to suffer with an underperforming, overpriced device such as the LG Optimus F3Q until the long-delayed Droid 5 is released in 2015...if ever. July 7, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by good phone, but not enough internal storage The keyboard is very nice, with good tactile response. It is certainly a much better keyboard than on the MyTouch 4g Slide. Otherwise, the phones are pretty similar. The main differences are that the F3Q has modern 4.1 Android software, whereas the 4g Slide cannot run modern apps using its obsolete 2.3 software. The 4g Slide had a great camera, however, and the F3Q doesn't match up. My big complaint is that there's not enough internal storage in this phone. After you install a bunch of apps, you will run into problems installing new apps or updating existing apps. After a while, the "insufficient storage" error message may drive you crazy. You can move some of the apps to an external SD card, but this is not possible for some apps, and it's not really advisable for important apps. I moved a bunch of apps to my external SD card, and then my SD card died. Needless to say, this was rather frustrating. The internal SD card is faster and more reliable. If this phone had a larger internal SD card, I'd be happy with it. As it is, I'm really hoping for a new version with more storage. Until then, I'll limp by with a subset of the apps that I'd really like to have. June 25, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Poorly Made Phone So I was looking for a phone that was a bit more durable than a Galaxy. This was the phone recommended to me by the T-Mobile staff. Needless to say, this is not a durable phone by any means. Dropped it from about 14" and the glass screen shattered like a massive rock hitting a car windshield. This should not happen to a product that has been sold to me as more durable than a Galaxy. I am not happy with T-Mobile or LG customer service as they both have just looked at me and said...too bad. LG customer service can not even present me with a rough cost to replace the glass without shipping it to them for 2 weeks. Parts and service elsewhere, so far, have been nil. Do yourself a favor and stay away, for as much as I have enjoyed this phone, it will not hold up and you will be disappointed. June 15, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this phone! It has all the features I love. I have not experienced anything on this phone I don't like with the exception of the internal memory isn't enough. I guess that is what an sd card is for! May 15, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it! Had a qwerty keyboard when I had sprint a few years ago, loved it. I was really glad to see T-Mobile has one now too. Easy to use the features on it are AWESOME! Great phone I would recommend to anyone. March 26, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by lovin it! For those who hate the touch keyboard I highly recommend this phone, it becomes a great phone with a few modifications. You should root this phone and add a swap partition to the SD card, the performance excels! I recommend you add Link2SD and RAMEXPANDER apps, as an option Overclock Widget but not a necessity. March 23, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Not user friendly The setting where hard to set up! The touch feature had to be pushed down more than a couple of times. The phone was frustrating therefore it is going back to the store. Dissatisfied customer March 14, 2014

    Questions on shopping?

    Customers currently under contract with another carrier are eligible for up to $650 per line (up to 5 lines; qualifying plan req’d).

    1. When transferring your number you can trade in your phones and tablets online or at any participating T-Mobile location and receive a credit up to $300 per device.
    2. Then, when you get your final bill listing your carrier’s Early Termination Fee (ETF) amounts, you simply send it to T-Mobile or submit it online at switch2tmobile.com, and within 8 weeks you will receive a prepaid MasterCard covering your ETF amount up to $350 per line. The amount paid will not be more than the ETF amount your previous carriers charge for the type of device traded-in.

    In most cases, the answer is yes. The first step is to check your phone to see if it’s compatible, and to find out what SIM card it uses. Then, you’ll simply select that SIM card and a plan. Once you receive your new SIM card in the mail, you’ll be ready to go.

    You may pay off the full cost of your phone (and any other devices included in your Equipment Installment Plan) early. If you do, you’ll enjoy monthly savings even sooner. To pay off your phone, you will need to call Customer Care or visit a T-Mobile retail store.

    If your number can be transferred, then we’ll contact your previous phone company to complete the transfer with your authorization

    To upgrade early, you’ll need to pay off your entire Equipment Installment Plan. You can do this by calling Customer Care or visiting a T-Mobile retail store.

    Yes. You once your phone is paid off, it’s paid off. From that point on you will only pay be billed for the T-Mobile rate plan, and services, or features you’ve chosen.

    When your new phone arrives simply follow the manufacturer’s set-up procedure and start using it. If you purchased a new T-Mobile SIM card to use in your own device, you will need to insert the new card and then you are good to go.

    You can upgrade your phone at any time. If you have an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) you’ll need to pay that off first, then you’re free to select a new phone. It’s as easy as that. If you cancel wireless service, remaining balance on phone becomes due.

    To find out if you’re eligible for a rebate or a promotion all you need to do is answer a few simple questions.

    Get started

    Other carriers recover the cost of the phone with higher recurring monthly rate plan charges. Their customers continue to pay higher monthly rates even after the phone is paid off. Only T-Mobile offers a plan that automatically lowers the cost of the monthly bill when the phone is paid off.

    We offer free, overnight shipping on certain new phones and devices. Otherwise, we will send your purchase using standard 2-4 business days shipping. Look for special promotions where all phones and devices include free, overnight shipping.

    No. When you group phones into a family plan when purchasing on T-Mobile.com, you must either pay for all of them up front, or over time.

    No. If you choose to pay over time, your payments will be interest-free.

    You must purchase insurance within the first 14 days of buying a new device. To learn more about Premium Handset Protection Insurance or to learn about our other bundled features simply follow the link.

    Learn more about Premium Handset Protection

    If you cancel your service, you still need to pay off the remaining balance of the device.

    Refurbished phones offered by T-Mobile have been inspected and tested to ensure they’re in good working order, and they all come with a limited 90-day warranty. They also come with the same return policy as our new devices: 20 days from the date of your order.

    Unlike other carriers that give you a discounted rate on the phone up front and then bury the costs in your monthly bill, we charge you the full retail price. In order to make payments more manageable, qualifying new and current customers can take advantage of our Equipment Installment Plan (EIP).

    Here's how phone payments work:

    EIP (Equipment Installment Plan) pricing allows qualifying customers to get a new phone with an initial down payment and make monthly payments on the phone for 20 months with no interest charges. For example, if you purchased a new phone for $550 and put $150 down, you pay $20/month for 20 months, plus the low monthly cost of your Value Plan. Value Plan pricing is only available at T-Mobile.

    The following restrictions apply to all EIPs:

    • Non-Value plans, T‐Mobile Monthly4G prepaid plans and certain business accounts are not eligible for EIPs.
    • Customers in Washington, DC and Puerto Rico are not eligible for EIPs.
    • The minimum required purchase for an EIP is $19.99.
    • Due to state regulations, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, West Virginia and Wyoming do not allow purchases on a 24‐month EIP.
    • If you leave T-Mobile you’re still obligated to pay off the remaining balance of the device.

    Learn more about our Equipment Installment Plan

    Depending on which rate plan you choose, you may also be charged an add a line fee; see rate plan for details. Taxes and shipping will also be applied to your order total.

    Whether you choose to pay for your device up front today, or pay over time, you can upgrade your device at any time. If your current device has not yet been paid off, you will need to continue to make payments on the existing balance. For the well-qualified buyer, pay over time pricing will spread interest-free payments over 24 months. If you cancel wireless service, remaining balance on phone becomes due.

    You need a credit check for a couple of reasons. First, if you are applying for an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) it’s standard practice for us to check your credit. If you want to keep your existing phone number we need to determine if it’s eligible to be transferred.

    Just like all other wireless carriers, T-Mobile has to charge enough to cover the cost of the phone. The difference is that T-Mobile separates the cost of the phone from the cost of the service. That means T-Mobile customers finish paying for their phone as soon the actual cost is paid off—and their monthly bill automatically drops.
