Samsung expects the Note7 recall nightmare to have an additional $3.1 billion financial impact in 4Q 2016 and 1Q 2017, on top of a $2.6B charge in Q3.
Sprint will start LG V20 preorders Oct. 21, while T-Mobile and Verizon confirm they will also offer the phone.
In exchange for their defective Note7, customers can get a bill credit up to $100 on any other Samsung phone or $25 on another brand.
The program aims to provide internet access to disadvantaged high school students whose families can't afford services at home.
The company now says it expects to take a $2.6 billion charge against its projected Q3 profits to pay for the failed Note7 line and its aftermath.
The music streaming service starts at $7.99 a month for Amazon Prime users or $9.99 a month for non-Prime customers.
NEWS ANALYSIS: Dumping the Note7 for good had to be done once battery fires were seen in the replacement Note7 smartphones, analysts said.
The new plans cut prices for business users and provide unlimited, talk, text and data, as well as 5GB of mobile hotspot usage per month.
The move to halt production and marketing of the Samsung Note7 comes after at least five reports of fires in the U.S. involving replacement phones.
Mobile carriers are also being asked to stop selling or replacing the recalled phones until the issues are resolved, according to Samsung.
The still unsettled situation is likely hurting Samsung's reputation as its replacement Note7 phones are reportedly also experiencing battery fires.
