Great Features for the PricePowerful with latest version of Android. The phone easily handles simultaneously Google Maps, Music, Phone calls, Chrome. Plenty of power. Very reliable. No freeze ups in two months. This is a top of the line phone at discount price. Right now it's the best value in cellphones for the price.

love it!!This is my second LG phone and I keep coming back. My previous phone was an LG V30 and I absolutely loved it. My previous phone finally decided to retire itself, so I immediately went to the V40 because I love LG products. The deal breaker for me in deciding to purchase is the 2nd year warranty.

Could LM-V405UA be unlocked?
If YES, will it work with other GSM carriers such as T-Mobile and MINT Mobile?
Which version of LG V40 is recommended for use with MINT Mobile?
Asked by: dhkim68
The LG V40 ThinQ™ | AT&T, Model # LMV405UA is a GSM phone and it can be unlocked. You would need to ask AT&T for permission to unlock the phone and they will unlock it for you. Their requirements are that the device has been active for at least 60 days (if you bought it on an installment plan or term agreement). Your account doesn’t have a past-due balance. Contracts are completed and any installment plans linked to the device are paid off. and that the device isn't reported as lost, stolen, or involved with fraud...^IFV

Can I purchase the original 3.0 fast charger for my v40 thin q from you? Verizon carries their own brand and other websites, such as Amazon, sell knock off chargers. My cord was damaged; therefore, phone now informs me that original fast charger is needed
