What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone! I had filled this out before, but my email keep insisting that I do it again. It's a great phone, it does everything it is supposed to. Only thing is that I got it from Sprint, and they don't allow updates to Android 10 while the other companies are probably on 12. Please, add the Android 10 update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I love the phone, it does everything its supposed to. My only trouble is that there arent many phone cases for it, but I was able to find one I liked.
Date published: 2022-08-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Android 10 Uppgrade!! I bought this from B&H Photo thinking not buying a Carrier based phone was a smart future proof decision. WRONG!! This version of the v40 is the only model NOT updated to Android 10. I contact customer support and was told it would be but it never happened. Every carrier version was updated though. This kind of customer service has made question to ever buy any LG product.

Does the V40 have bluetooth functionality which FULLY supports aptX-HD ?

Asked by: cakyol
The LG V40 ThinQ™ | AT&T, Model # LMV405UA supports Bluetooth ver. 5.0 (see pages 142-143 in your owner's manual for the phone). The Bluetooth does not support the aptX-HD codec...^Ivan

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
I have this model previously on AT&T and unlocked. I use it on Red Pocket mobile an MVNO on AT&T network. Works great except no tethering or Hotspot. AT&T locks tethering in their custom firmware installed on their branded phones. Tethering lock is unaffected by phone unlock.

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
