Sprint LG G3 sales get an early start

Earlier this week we saw AT&T join the growing list of carriers announcing their plans for the start of LG G3 sales, and just like it told us would happen, the phone’s available in the company’s retail stores as of today – no surprise there. Over at Sprint, though, users were supposed to still have a little bit of a wait on their hands: pre-orders were set to begin today, but the phone itself wasn’t scheduled to arrive until next Wednesday, July 16. Well, apparently Sprint didn’t feel like being late to the party after all, and has gone ahead with making the G3 available at retail as of today.

That’s right: instead of just pre-ordering the G3 from Sprint, the phone is full-on available for purchase, starting today. Sales are open both online and in the carrier’s retail stores, where you can grab the G3 for about $200 on contract. AT&T’s got the phone for the same price, but it also has a decent deal that can net you some 50% savings on a G Watch if you pick one of those up along with your new phone.

T-Mobile seems to be sticking with its original plans to not release the G3 until next week (though pre-orders are open now), and the story’s the same over at Verizon.
