A few weeks ago we let you know that the LG Optimus L3 would be coming to Canada. At the time it was only a Fido release, but we can now confirm it’ll be heading towards Rogers, too. This will be part of Rogers “Android Smartphone Lite” category and the specs and price certainly reflects it. The L3 will ship with OS 2.3 Gingerbread, have a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 3MP camera and the price…. a ridiculously low $124.99 outright, or $0.01 on a 2-year. This should be arriving in stores any day now.

(Thanks tipster!)

    Can you unlock this and use on Wind Mobile ? Does it work on AWS spectrum ? I might go for it if I can use it on WM 🙂

      Even Huawei Astro is better than this one.

    Time to sucker the 16-24 year old age group into signing a 2 year contract to only save $125

    • 45

      Even if they do, the most they could pay as a cancellation fee is the $125 anyway.

      Exactly, contacts really aren’t as scary as they once were now that you just have to buy out your phone as a cancellation fee… Which, as 45 said, would be $125 or less… So on the offchance your phone lasts for the whole 2 years, why not sign the contract?

      and if u are with fido, there might even be a chance that you have to pay absolutely nothing!

      had 2 customers in 2 days get their cancellation fee waived because of an issue with fido systems. usually when a customer buys a phone, the cancellation fee will be produced automatically on their accounts. but due to this error, no cancellation fees were put on. so customer service basically cancelled their contracts for 0$. they both had samsung galaxy nexus.
