T-Mobile G2X Already Up On Ebay, Yours For $999

This is just one of those things I enjoy posting because of how ridiculous it is that someone would pay $999 for a phone coming out in less than 10 days. Furthermore this individual did nothing to block the IMEI and identifying information of the device in the pictures so if s/he is an employee and selling this device, someone better make that $999 last for a while! Any takers? Didn’t think so.

Do yourself a favor and order the T-Mobile G2X on April 15th and pay 1/4 of this asking price.

    Guarantee you the winning bidder doesn’t get their device until after the 15th.

    Also, isn’t the description inaccurate? I was under the impression this phone is NOT 3D…

        What highend smartphone isn’t in that range? Nexus S costs $529 off contract from BB

  • Mattd

    I was thinking about making a offer of around $200 – $300 for some fun. Maybe ill get it lol.

    • Anonymous

      You are asking this guy to offer a contract price…. People you have to remember this is buying it outright. It is overly expensive but by like $400. An average highend smartphone costs around 500 outright but thanks to carrier contracts they allow us half off.

  • Anonymous

    $500 per Core. Not bad its like 2 phones in one!

    who the hell would pay 999 for this device?? u would have to be on crack or some kind of drug to buy this at that stupid price lol… it will only be 199 or 499 out right so ur paying an extra 500 dollars for what??? nothing thats what… what a joke

    • Anonymous

      To be first and only one for 10 days….. but it is a joke though

  • Blah

    lol at making the $999 last. yeah maybe if this went up for sale in january or late december someone stupid enough maybe would pay $6/700, but never $1000.

  • Your Wifes favorite Plumber

    Seeing as their sell history has a lot of phones from several carriers its more likely that they are a dealer for multiple carriers (or the phone came ‘straight off the truck’) rather than a T-Mobile Employee.

  • Anonymous

    Hey just bought 3 from this guy.. yup its possible

  • http://twitter.com/Plouis1988 Patrick Pierre-louis

    No employee has even seen this phone yet unless they were letting people at corporate play with them. Must have some connects at a distributor or something. Maybe A tech or someone if they got them early to get familiar with them but definitely no way this is a store rep.

    • http://profiles.google.com/danieljamesrice Dan Rice

      I called the local T-Mobile to ask if they had display models yet. He told me they did not but that his manager is using one right now as his personal. He said if I go in Saturday I can see it as the manager will be working and can show it off.

    • Halftime

      Not true. I had a chance to play with it yesterday. And some people won them in a raffle.

      • Bam

        Saw it a month ago and today.

        • Anonymous

          I saw it 2 months ago in Korea. One fell off the assembly line so I got to play with it for a few minutes.

    • spistachio

      I have also personally played with one. Certain employees who were nominated based on performance were given the devices. after playing with a g2x i can assure you that it is snappy.

  • Atul0002

    Its 799 now lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/CeeGee-Borela/100000183782060 CeeGee Borela

    Inside the box:

    T-Mobile G2X
    Sim Card
    Battery & Charger
    USB Cable
    Start Guide

    Also comes with brand new HDMI cable!! <—– this part i love hahahahaha

    as if he threw a brand new HDMI cable in as a bonus, as if the coming retails unit did not come with a new HDMI cable and came with used ones

    • http://profiles.google.com/danieljamesrice Dan Rice

      I suppose that proves that there is no micro SD card packaged with it.

    The sale ended. Alright WHO BOUGHT IT!?

  • Which way is Up?

    You can’t be too mad at the seller, if someone is willing to purchase the phone for that much, why not? In all honesty though, why wouldn’t you just go to your local Walmart and purchase one at full retail? I thought everybody knew by now that you can get the newest T Mobile phone from Walmart up to a week prior to its official release!

    Lol

    • TMoChris

      Thats How I’m getting mine!!! lol

      • marketing

        Anyone know if WalMart sells mobiles out of contract (full retail)?

        If so, anyone know the confirmed WalMart retail by chance?

        • Which way is Up?

          Yes, they do. The reason being is, the phone will not show in their system as an upgrade with the discounted price and so the only option you have is to buy it out right.

          You have to be slick about as some employes will know not to sell the phone early. I got lucky with my HD2. I could see behind the clerk, there must’ve been 15 and this was close to a full week prior to its release. I recall reading about and decided to call several stores-all of which denied having the phone stock. My wife needed to go to purchase household things and I just took a chance by going down to that section of the store.

          Good luck!

        • Ivorypeppers

          I always get my phones from Wal-Mart early. vibrant gs4g hd2 all came from Walmart a week early. you just have to tell the associate you are buying out right any will sell.

    • Xdmds

      If I call and ask if they have it would the say they have it before release? Or would I have to go to the store and ask.

  • http://www.facebook.com/matt.mingkee Matt Tsui

    It makes no sense to buy it right now as you’ll get it for $500 in couple of weeks.

    i’m assuming optimus 2x accessories,cases etc. will work with the g2x? assuming tmo hasn’t changed the physical design at all. i’m already shopping for accessories and don’t see anything tmobile branded yet.

    I found another T-mobile G2x for sale on eBay out of curiosity (apparently the other was either taken down or already bought)…. look at “Other item info”, and see history: it says 14 offers as of the time I am writing this comment. And the up-front cost is $1000. How stupid can people get?

    anybody know what type hdmi cable the g2x uses? i have a type c that i use for my camcorder. the differences are here-from wikipedia–
    Type C
    A Mini connector defined in the HDMI 1.3 specification, it is intended for portable devices.[1][50][51] It is smaller than the type A plug connector (10.42 mm × 2.42 mm) but has the same 19-pin configuration.[50][52] The differences are that all positive signals of the differential pairs are swapped with their corresponding shield, the DDC/CEC Ground is assigned to pin 13 instead of pin 17, the CEC is assigned to pin 14 instead of pin 13, and the reserved pin is 17 instead of pin 14.[53] The type C Mini connector can be connected to a type A connector using a type A-to-type C cable.[50][51]

    Type D
    A Micro connector defined in the HDMI 1.4 specification[51][54] keeps the standard 19 pins of types A and C but shrinks the connector size to something resembling a micro-USB connector.[55] The type D connector is 2.8 mm × 6.4 mm, whereas the type C connector is 2.42 mm × 10.42 mm;[56] for comparison, a micro-USB connector is 2.94 mm × 7.8 mm and USB Type A is 11.5 mm × 4.5 mm.

    Often people will buy newly released phones (unlocked) at inflated prices when they are with other carriers, or out of the country.  The asking price isn’t unusual under those circumstances.  Pretty typical.  I have the phone, and it’s benchmarks are awful…bugs galore….not a happy G2x user.  But happier than the guy who bought his for $999!
