The G2 Has Begun Arriving!

And so it has begun, the T-Mobile G2 has begun arriving to T-Mobile customers (and of course TmoNews readers) across this great land. We know that quite a few of you are expecting arrival tomorrow and the day after but for now, you’ll just have to be envious of this lucky individual who got his UPS delivery today. Of course we are even more thankful that we have the first unboxing video available for your viewing pleasure! Stay tuned to TmoNews for more G2 pictures and videos!

    Does anyone know if signature is required for delivery?

    • SurgioArmani

      In the past it was not required. You’d think that it would be but no.

    • mikeyo

      yes it is

    • reasy

      No, i was going to call ups and tell them to leave at the ups center, but..when i got home, it was waiting at the door so…

      • Surgio Armani

        Yeah, I came home from work and just like in the past my phone was on my doorstep waiting for me.

    • jj

      it depends upon ups, if they feel that there is a possibility, or history of items being stolen off of doorsteps then they require the signiature.

      On my phones that I always order (meaning I don’t buy phones in stores), I get them delivered to my P.O. Box.

      None of my phones have ever required a signature.

      T-Mobile sends packages to P.O. Boxes via Two Day Priority mail, since those have a tracking number I suspect T-Mobile figures that’s good enough, no need to hassle with signatures.

    • wack mode

      if u request for it then yeah

  • trife

    Got mine a few hours ago. I love living close to a TMO shipping center….shipped out yesterday and delivered today w/ ground shipping.

    On another note, this thing is NICE! Finally I can retire my trusty HD2.

  • J1

    Congrats to all the early adopters.. I’m about 90% sold on this phone.. just would like to see some more video reviews, and get some hands on time b4 I pull the trigger..

    On another note… looks as if its a great time to be a tmobile cust.. sucks to be mailman right about now.. ftw lol

    • ogopogo

      I really want to know about the battery life. I too am waiting in the wings. It’s between the G2 and the MTHD.

  • Ken

    WTF the memory card is not hot swappable? U have to remove the battery in order to take it out ?

    • da mayor

      That part does suck. But other than that, this phone is the shiznit.

      • The Hammer

        Im gonna ask this again.
        What do you guys do just swap cards out all the time?

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    LOL… one time I am happy for you all that I was wrong about T-Mobile shipping out phones before official launches.

    So much for my logic.

    Congrats on all of you getting your phones. Post some YouTube unboxings.

  • The Shick

    To the person sayingthese people are liars, I pre-ordered mine last week and got my text from T-Mobile today with my tracking # from UPS. I checked it out and it will be delivered today the 30th. If you read the T+Mobile site it stated “exclusive to T-Mobile customers, we can pre-order the G2 and get it before its nationally available on oct. 6th you should get a better source. I’ll post another response later after I get my G2.

    • Cr

      Mine came yesterday to Illinois.

      Works great and I was surprised to see that when you get a message it lights up around the trackpad. I thought that was just bezel around it.

  • Spitz

    That has got to be the worst video ever! I got a headache just trying to watch it and what did it teach us? Nothing

  • james

    hey i ordered mine tuesday and got it on wednesday without paying for any special shipping tmobile is the ishhh!!!

    • reasy

      yep,..came with a new sim card…

  • reasy

    Got mine yesterday, got home in the evening and it was in the UPS bag at the door. Got the text that morning say it was shipped….Love it so far..Absolutely love it, waited out..kissed the g1 goodbye :)

  • Jrsykind

    For g1 upgraders, was anyone able to keep the G1 Data Package w/ 400 Text for $25 a month? For my two lines, it would be another $20 a month if I had to go to $30 for Data + a text package.

    • rubb3rducky

      Yup, still have it.

      • Jrsykind

        Thank you!!!

  • Trevor

    T-Mobile has unreal shipping. Ordered mine at 2pm yesterday, it shipped at 10:30 pm according to UPS and it is at my door now at 10:30 am. Talk about service. Didn’t receive any email or text message though lol. Sadly I am at work and will have to wait until 7ish to play with it :(

  • AM123

    Anyone else ordered on the 24th (last friday) with express ups shipping and order shows “backorder” and no UPS shipping info? I think they are holding back the express shipments for some strange reason. Really frustrated right now. Should I cancel the order and order it again Ground?

    Enjoy the awesome phone everybody!

    • Trevor

      I can say that the rep who I order mine from said that selecting Express Shipping was unnecessary as she thought the phone would not arrive until October 6th. Low and behold it only took 24hours from billing info received to arriving at my door, with regular ground shipping.

      I live in Chicago and it shipped out of Kentucky. Perhaps it is a problem with shipping center that is closet to where you live? Maybe they are low in stock?

      At any rate, I would ask for a refund for the extra money you paid for Express Shipping.

    • Shawn

      are you using your phone number with NO dashes for the reference # on UPS website?

      • Trevor

        Yea no dashes, you have to go into the actual tracking section of the site and click the like that says Track by Reference.

      • AM123

        Ohhh trust me guys, I’ve been doing it with and without dashes through the refrence section at least every two hrs for the past two days now. :( I tried to cancel the order but T-mobile said it’s not possible at this point and the only way would be to either reject the package when it is delivered or return it. Oh well, guess your videos will have to do till next week.

  • AM123

    Thanks Trevor. They actually updated me to express free of charge. Sucks to be me. I wonder if I cancel the order and order again with ground if it would ship today. Hmmm.

  • Riusaki

    Just ordered mine today!!! I had the G1 the first week it came out but lost it while on vacation to California last year. Since then I’ve been using a jailbroken iPhone and I hate it to death.

    This phone will honor the memory of my beloved G1.

    Has ANYONE seen T-Mobile promoting on TV the G2?

    I remember when the Touch Pro2 debuted in August 2009. As much as I loved that phone and on TMoNews we were super excited about it, including on TMoNews Forums, there was not squat on TV, or even on the Net, about its debut. There was a press release and a few pop-up ads on the Net, but that was it.

    Same with the G2… I have not seen anyone talking about it.

    Does Germany raid TMOUS’s piggy bank and refuse to allocate advertising dollars for U.S. product launches, does TMOUS consider the G2 not that big a deal, or does TMOUS think it does not need to advertise handsets?

    It’s the most bizarre thing I have ever seen. Some T-Mobile product launches remind me of submarines on silent running so they are not detected by sonar. Maybe T-Mobile’s marketing department is staffed by a bunch of ex-submariners.

    • Mr.Barrow

      Nicely put!!

  • g1tmobile129

    has anyone who got the phone with express shipping received the phone yet? so far it seems everyone who has received it got regular ground shipping. i got express shipping and phone is not here yet! :(

    • AM123

      Im in the same boat. Ordered mine last friday the 24th. Express shipping will probably ship on tuesday. :(

  • The Shick

    I got mine earlier today and I love it! So once again to the person who said we are liars, sucks to be you right now. We get to enjoy our G2’s and you get to play with yourself, have fun!

  • Mr. Barrow

    any1 tethering yet. if so post how. thanks

  • Lee

    It does not require a signature. Just got G2 yesterday. The UPS man just placed it at the door and rang the bell. He took off after. Thank goodness someone was home!!

  • Lee

    I’m Tethering. Works fine with the App called PDANet. Farely easy to set up. Just download the app, then go to the website and download the app and the drivers. The website will explain how the phone will communicate with your laptop. Since is on the 4G network. It’s fast!!
