[UPDATED] T-Mobile G2 Now Available For Pre-Order

Update 1: Turns out someone flipped a switch a little early tonight as the Facebook link and Twitter post went down as soon as they went up. Right now some people are reporting luck by ordering through their my.T-Mobile.com login!

Right on queue, the T-Mobile G2 is finally available now for pre-order from T-Mobie. Magenta’s first HSPA+ handset is available online for pre-order beginning now through October 4th exclusively to current subscribers for $199.99 with a qualifying 2-year upgrade and $499 sans contract. Additionally, the G2 will also be available for pre-order through select T-Mobile Retail Stores and Customer Care as well. What are you waiting for? Whip out those credit cards and ORDER NOW! Let us know in the comments if you pre-ordered!

T-Mobile G2 Pre-Order

UPDATE 2: If you’re still on the fence about purchasing the T-Mobile G2, check out the YouTube video below of the G2 running a Quadrant benchmark test. Yielding results higher than even the 1GHz powered Nexus One, once again proves that just because the G2 has an 800MHz processor it isn’t inferior to the competition. Remember folks, MHz isn’t everything!

    Jus ordered mine for 149.99+tax=162.81 thru CL…I had to call tmo like 5 times and even threaten to cancel my service and they was like OK we’ll cancel your service i was like F**k nevemind because i throught they was going to be like no dont cancel…lol but after the 5th call i got a nice lady that offered me CL so now im happy with tmo now.

  • wantmyG2

    did anyone who pre-ordered through customer care get a confirmation e-mail or able to see the order status on my.t-mobile?

    • tmogee

      nope.

      • tmogee

        i mean we have the same problem here anybody know why??

  • jmugirl

    so after 3 calls both my mom and i were able to upgrade..she got the 149 price because she is eligible for a full upgrade and i got a 204 price since im not eligible til november. these prices are after the rep waved the upgrade and shipping fee. but something i did not know was that i could not keep my current g1 plan of 24.99..i HAD to get the 30 plan because my 24.99 plan was a grandfather plan that is no longer available. so thats 5 more a month for basically nothing since my family plan already has the unlimited text feature

    • wantmyG2

      CS let me keep my $25 G1 data plan. you got got.

    • Mel P

      CS actually put me on the $20 loyalty data plan when I called for my G2…

  • fuzzy

    called tmobile to complain that people are getting the phone for 149.99. spent an hour on the phone. threatened to cancel the contract. THEY WOULDNT BUDGE. ladies and gentlemen.. I maybe leaving magenta..

    p.s. probably going to the evo on sprint for less contract wise.

    • fuzzy

      success! I called a second time to ask where I should return the phone to be able to opt out of the new 2 year contract and be free to go wherever I want. This time, there was someone who all of a sudden found the 149.99 deal I was talking about. Hah!

      • fuzzy

        now if I could just get a tracking # :):):)

  • Nick

    Got the upgrade fee waved and got to keep my G1 Data plan price. Also managed to get free express shipping since I wanted the phone sent to an address other than the billing address.

  • DualMonitors

    why did that guy write above that he got his earlier today? what’s that all about? gullible me thought that he DID get his! silly me.

  • Tony

    Just ordered the G2. Said “cancel” at the prompt and got a friendly rep who gave me $149 no rebates, spread out over 4 payments, shipping/upgrade fee waived, get to keep my preferred Android $20 plan and all the other grandfathered features on my account. The rep told me he already has a G2 and says it is the best phone T-Mobile has ever offered.

    • daboibanks

      What does the 20 CL data plan include?

  • jmugirl

    how were yall able to keep this plan?…after all the things they waived and i spoke with them and said whats the point of paying 5 more a month and they just simply stated that i MUST change to the 30 plan..i mean it was only 5 bucks and i didnt feel like arguing any more..since i already placed my order i doubt they will argue with me about 5 bucks more a month

    • Tony

      Like I’ve said before, it sure seems like every rep makes up his or her own “rules” as they go along.

      If you have more than 22 months of active service, call retentions again and complain. Tell them that you are a loyal customer, and are really excited about having a G2, but know that your friends have a $20 data plan that you want.

      It’s just luck of the draw which rep you get…but try a few times and soon you’ll be rocking that $20 preferred data plan.

  • thomas

    You can keep your current android plan. When I first put my order, the CS told me I was required to go on the $30 plan since it was higher speed. I did some research and in fact you can keep your old plan. SO I called back and found another rep to help me change it back to my preferred price. So for those who were told you needed the $30 plan, that is not true and get calling. Hope I can help others out

  • HD2/Vibrant User

    Has anybody got any tracking info yet????? I haven’t.

    • http://www.aneurysmjune.com albucian

      it says Pending Shipping.

  • jmugirl

    so i read the comments and i recalled tmobile and lo and behold i got to keep my 24.99 rate plan and also the other line that is upgrading as well got that price as well even though she didnt even have a smartphone before upgrading..yayyy

  • DualMonitors

    Entirely annoying of TMobile to send out an Order Confirmation email stating explicitly that 9/27th is the arrival date and even today, on 9/28th, not a single beep with even a UPS tracking number.

    Weird and annoying for a big corporation to do this.

  • james

    all you lames threatened to cancel prolly aren’t even eligible for upgrades in the first place, i hate u A## Holes who have a phone for like 8 months and expect to get full upgrade price whenever you want. Babies if u want new phones then dont sign CONTRACTS!! people always want something for nothing

    • fuzzy

      Actually I’ve been with tmobile since 2002 and I was eligible for the full upgrade. So shhh

  • Chris

    lol.. People need to go to ups.com and use there cell # in the reference tracking method.. If u ordered ure phone express and got it 24 hours from the day it went on presale, u should recieve ure phone this thursday or poss friday. Ground shipping next week

    • mthode

      UPS has no data on via my number (with and without the ’1′ in front)

    • mthode

      Nothing shows up with and without the ’1′. Ordered Friday.

  • Chris

  • dubz

    i’m only 2 months in since my last upgrade. sold that phone in preparation to getting the g2. called retentions to see what i can do. got $50 off retail for a 2 month extension. not that great, but it offsets the tax i guess.

  • mdiggty

    @daboibanks dude you keep putting that same thing up in every forum. Go hang out at walmart, people here are looking for the G2.

  • amejr999

    I’m looking at the T-Mo website, and I’m apparently upgrade-elegible (it’s giving me a $200 price). But the terms and conditions don’t say anything about a contract extension. It says:

    I agree and understand that (a) my original contract term if any, will continue inforce and effect; (b) if I have a contract term remaining I may be subject to an early termination fee of upto $200/line;(c) my original terms and conditions along with any applicable supplemental terms and conditions for other service continue to apply;(d) any disputes may be subject to arbitration.

    Is anyone else seeing this?

    • Nick

      I saw that as well. I figure they’d get you into a 2-year contract some other way, though so I purchased through Customer Loyalty. Did you go ahead and purchase online to see what happened? (+2 year contract or no?)

  • BlackHawk
