So the 50 minutes is probably somewhat inflated. Had the store kept pace it probably would've been more like 10 minutes.
I expect LG will be able to make more, but this is a standout phone.
In my case, my Nexus 7 basically opened the horizon up for me, as far as moving from my iPhone 4S. The fact that T-Mobile hasn't yet marshalled many towers to support 3G on the iPhone 4/4S makes the switch to a pentaband phone a real plus as far as utility is concerned. Edge works, just, but really sucks every day.
I wonder why - surely they expected this (if nothing else, given the performance of the phone in other markets).
So, heads up if anyone made a similar mistake :) It's easy enough to cancel the order if you need to.
