The LG Optimus F3 journey to Sprint has come to an end and the phone is almost ready to be offered to customers. The carrier announced that it will start selling the phone online or through 1-800-SPRINT1 on June 14. If you prefer to hand pick your device you will have to wait a little longer. The handset will arrive at brick and mortar stores later this summer. The LG Optimus F3 will be priced at $29.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and will require a new 2-year service agreement. Such budget-friendly price level makes the Optimus F3 the most affordable LTE device offered by Sprint so far.
