[eBay.ca] LG V50 w/ 5G 6 GB/128 GB 572$ shipped

Not sure if I would call this hot but this is a 5G phone new* (I put an asterisk since it is open box) for under 600$ and YYwireless has a good rep. I am still with my V35 but I might pick this up.

Why does it say Clean ESN but then also says that it doesn't work in the USA?

Wonder why it specifically doesn't work in the US, blacklisted? No go for travel there then.

"International Buyer Only
DO NOT Work in the USA"

Would this work in Canada? I'm not too familiar with bands, but a US phone that doesn't work in the US sounds a bit fishy to me.

Most Canadian carriers offer US packages for a reasonable fee per day (Rogers is like 7$ per day I believe).

There's an Amazon listing that sheds more light on what the potential issues are for the international version of this phone:


Since there are no three pogo pins on the back of the North American version of the V50 (Because of the network provider's request), it does not support dual screen. On the other hand, there are three pogo pins on the back of the European and Asian versions of the V50 that connect to dual screens.
This phone works with GSM network carriers around the world. (It does NOT work with CDMA carriers like Verizon, Sprint, Boost..)
This phone is Single SIM card version (It does NOT support Dual SIM card) and International Version (No Warranty)

Network Compatibility : 4G - B1(2100), B2(1900), B3(1800), B4(AWS), B5(850), B7(2600), B12(700), B20(800), B26(850), B28(700), B38(2600), B39(1900), B40(2300), B41(2500) // 5G - N78(3500) (5G networks may not work in your country because of different network frequencies.)
Specifications : Snapdragon 855 Octa-core processor, Android 9.0 (Pie), Penta camera, 128 GB storage (ROM), 6 GB RAM, MicroSD slot (up to 2TB), 4,000 mAh battery

Title says "Sprint Unlocked".


This phone is blacklisted for sure. Same as the other phone this seller is selling: OnePlus 7 Pro

I am fuzzy. This is not the international version, it says "Sprint Unlocked".

MPN: "LM-V500N" is supposed to be from Korea. How can that be "Sprint unlocked"?

Sprint version is LM-V450PM.

Something isn't right here.

On the other hand, and please correct me if I am wrong but GSMARENA states the phone supports:

41, 260, 261 NSA

None of these seem supported by ROBUS.

Guys, the listing is so clear.
Sprint unlocked, Sprint on box, "doesn't work in the USA".

It's blacklisted (US for now, will be blacklisted in Canada and some other countries in a few months)
