LG G8X ThinQ

I just purchased an LG G8X ThinQ phone and have used my public mobile SIM card in it.  The PublicMobile webpage does not include this phone in their list of phones that will work, but it does.

An unlocked LG G8X ThinQ from any Canadian providers should work with PM.

 

Koodo is selling LG G8X ThinQ.

@LockeS Yes, that's right. It is okay. PM's database is not fully updated with the phones supported by this provider. My phones are not in the list, but they are working great.

Hi @LockeS 

 

You've proved that the phone works!

The PM site lists 2 close variations of the phone: G8 ThinQ & G8s ThinQ

 

It's a pretty good phone and well priced if you got it from Costco.
$500 in-store or $520 online:

Re: LG G8X ThinQ

I was looking at Costco.ca but went with an open-box from BestBuy as it came with the second screen for almost the same price.  So far the phone is great.  A little heavy with the case on it, but the dual screen is nice.
