    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good phone, with limitations... Got this phone to replace my HTC G2 which I loved. But with some newer apps, I needed something with a better processor and better battery life, and this fit the bill. Physical keyboard is a must for me for ssh applications, and this one is ok, although like the HTC G2, missing a couple characters on the hard keyboard. As others mentioned, big problem is the memory. Can't install too many apps. Rooting the phone and installing Link2Sd is a must, but only gets you so far. The only other issue I have with this phone, and it's nearly enough to send me back to the HTC, is that the native email application will not allow you to add more than 3 microsoft exchange email accounts.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by I LOVE this phone EXCEPT for the internal storage. I didn't even think to ask (and no one offered to tell me) how much there was. 8Gs seems small lately. What can I even do with LESS than 2?? If I had known internal storage was SO low I wouldn't have bought this. You can't download ANYTHING. Even with most stuff moved to SD card. too bad December 14, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by simply dysfunctional The only reason I purchased this phone was because it was the only one available as new with a keyboard. There are far too many "bloatware" apps on here that you cannot delete-you can disable them. Also, the phone randomly resets itself in mid-use. The lack of on-board storage is pitiful. This is the most severe drawback of this phone. I have moved every single app possible to the SD card, reduced all mail syncs (later deleted entire accounts), unpinned apps, disabled apps I am never going to use (even though they still sit there and consume precious memory space), deleted apps that I loved to use everyday, deleted text messages and it still keeps telling me "low memory space" and "storage space is running out". T-mobile sent me a text message to update the "My account" app because the device may not function properly, BUT I can't even do that! All of my apps are out of date. No memory! I a very disappointed in this phone. LG should never make a phone with such little memory ever again. Since T-mobile no longer offers a "new every 2" plans, I either have to save up to drop another wad of cash on another phone or I may just have to go back to my 3 year old HTC MyTouch 4g Slide...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is okay This phone is very good but when I dropped the phone once the screen just smashed and now when I swipe across the screen little pieces of glass come off other then that it is a good phone. December 5, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by The only GSM Android phone with keyboard. Preview your review Overall 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 Quality 4 out of 5 Features 4 out of 5 Value 3 out of 5 User Name: Misbehave From:Seattle, WA, USA I've owned this product for:A few weeks Primary reason I chose LG:Online Research Would you recommend product? Yes "The only GSM Android phone with keyboard left." December 5, 2014 I was a happy T-Mobile G2 (HTC Desire Z) user for the past 4 years until 2 weeks ago. I was also forced to retire my G2 as it no longer charges right nor does it hold its charges even new batteries are being put in. Plus it was getting so dangerously hot that I can no longer feel safe using it. I am happy to say though that the LG Optimus F3Q by T-Mobile is a good replacement for the G2. It's not the perfect replacement but it is certainly an improvement. The keyboard layout is not as nice as the G2 as there is only one Caps key on the left instead on both side like on the G2. The typing feedback is also not as nice as the keyboard on the G2. But everything else is almost an improvement. The Android run much smoother with 1gb of ram and the better processor. However, like the G2, the F3Q is only useable if you root it and have Link2SD running on it plus the 2gb ext2 partition on the SD card as the internal memory is simply not enough for a practical android user. You will also need to install a 3rd party camera apps like Snap Camera to turn up the Saturation level to make the stock camera acceptable as the camera of this phone really isn't that good. Yes, for the same price of the F3Q, you can get a much faster phone with much bigger and better screen and with double the rams and better looking phone like the LG Nexus5. That would be my choice of phone to get if I could give up the keyboard. However if you need a GSM android phone with physical keyboard, the F3Q is really the only choice left for you. The only 2 major problems for this phone are the amount of ram and internal memory. If the LG Optimus F3Q had 2gb of ram and 16gb or 32gb of internal memory, this phone would be perfect. It's just too bad LG decided not to make it so. December 5, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good with a few glitches, two of them unfixable. The phone is pretty good. Except for the t-mobile bloat-ware on it, the meagre memory and the missing TAB-key and light sensor. The keyboard is good and backlit. It only misses a TAB-key. Annoying because of the missing auto-completion in terminal emulators. Especially if you are using this phone to work remote via SSH on servers or program in a company whose style guide makes TAB indentation mandatory . But that is probably not that important to the average user. There is no light-sensor. I do not understand why, as this is a very cheap and tiny thing and makes it so much more comfortable to use the phone. The memory is a little meagre, but if you are going to root the phone (which you should consider if you are interested in and capable of taking full advantage of android) you can as well modify the vold.fstab to mount an SD-card-partition or bind a folder on the SD-card to circumvent that limitation. T-mobile puts a lot of their extra-software on the phone that I think is more annoying than helpful, but that depends on personal preferences and maybe it is not bad for those new to android. Some of the software is actually really useful for everyone as e.g. the OCR-dictionary. The LG themes for android are a little tacky and I would prefer a clean Cyanogen-mod-like user interface. I also do not understand why they do not ship the phone with cyanogen-mod from the beginning. I suppose it has to do with company politics. Although I am young I like to see a product that is advertised and adapted to the needs of user above the age of 45. There is not enough of that in the market. Besides these flaws it is a really nice phone. Just a little expensive for the provided computational power. But a good keyboard is worth it. November 16, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Why such a critic? I am going to do this phone justice, it DOES have a back light on the qwerty keyboard and works like a charm. This phone has some great features to it, the only drawback is the storage but there are ways around it. IF you are looking for a an upgrade from your T-Mobile G2 or any other phone similar, this is a great choice, I am highly satisfied with my purchase. October 18, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Physical keyboard nice but there are drawbacks I used an LG env2 for several years. The keyboard was great. Unfortunately that success did not influence the LG engineers. The keys are shiny and not backlit so the light has to be perfect to be able to use the keyboard. Often, by the time you can see the keys you can no longer read the screen. The phone also needs more memory. Bluetooth does not reliably connect to my car. I can dial and I can pick up calls but most of the time the audio does not come through the car's radio which is a pain. The other features work well however although I think the camera is not as good as the one on my old env2 and it is harder to use. Customer service from T-Mobile has been excellent. September 5, 2014

    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, 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.

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

    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.
