(Updated!) Has The G2x Been Pulled From Store Shelves Due To Quality Issues?

Updated: We pinged T-Mobile this morning regarding this issue and they followed up via Twitter stating “The T-Mobile G2x has been very popular and high demand has resulted in inventory constraints, which we are working to address. We are working with LG to address inventory constraints and expect to return to normal levels in the coming weeks.” We’ve gone back to our original source who reverified their claim that was the phone was taken offline to address “issues” with the device. Hopefully you understand that our original story was meant to question the sudden disappearance of the G2x and was not written as a confirmation. We still believe that T-Mobile needs to address the quality control issues which have plagued the device since days 1.

We’re receiving word from some of our ninjas that the T-Mobile G2x has been pulled from T-Mobile.com due to quality control issues over the device. The G2x has been plagued with random reboots, light leaks and various minor control issues since it was first released to the public. While we can’t say for certain that one of those quality control issues is behind the sudden disappearance of the G2x from T-Mobile.com, it’s missing and we’re betting it’s not because of low inventory. Perhaps this would also explain why tonight’s midnight sale was changed at the last minute to include the Sidekick 4G and not the G2x.

We’re looking further into this and we hope that T-Mobile lets G2x users know if in fact there is a quality control issue with the device and offers a replacement. That’s getting a little ahead of ourselves however until we know the whole story. We’ll update the second we know more!

    I’ve been through four of these things – and the last one I got doesn’t have bad leakage on the display (after four)! But, these things have a couple of other issues that I think a firmware update can handle (hopefully)? There’s three main issues I’m having (speaking for myself); on a boot up – the device will freeze after the T-Mo / Android animation, and requires a battery pull. The browser will zap out at any given time while on a Web page (not a force close). Google’s weather widget never loads – it just stays loading and slows down the device (unless that’s an Android issue). And the thing overheats via HDMI like a son of a gun. Quality Control? You damn skippy! Can firmware update fix all of these issues? Maybe. Let me know if you guys are having these same issues?

    • Tfan

      I think the weather update problem is either an APP issue or Android issue I think I had the same problem on my MyTouch 4G, but yes I see that happen at times but no big deal to me. I have had no freezes or lock-ups that I can remember if I have it was only once in a blue moon and even the MyTouch 4G would do that. I have not used the HDMI port so I’ll have to try that sometime. I can say it gets hot using the GPS. But my experience has been that overall it has been a much better phone that the MyTouch 4G that I used for over 6 months.

      I think mine has got to be the best smart phone I’ve ever seen on battery life. My bet is that the HTC Sensation will be a great phone but don’t expect great battery life with the speed and features.

    • Tfan

      I guess I just got lucky and got a good one.

      • Jabombardier

        Me too. Had it for over a month. I had a reboot that happened twice in one day and twice, the phone turned off by itself twice while on standby with the screen black. However so far the phone hasn’t repeated those issues. Pretty happy with it. And love the ginormous hardrive space.

    • Jomaxwel

      I would do a master reset not just once but twice to make sure everything is gone then if same problems persist get a replacement. I know everone is going to say you dont have to do it twice but why not. like i said there are software problems and they will be addressed by gingerbread (THANKS T-MOBILE). I have had mine for 36 days and never had a reboot or freezing. Other issues are know goto the lgforum.com and check that out.

      • CactusCat

        I wish to add that I too have had almost 0 problems with my G2X. Very slight screen bleeding from all 4 corners but I have never noticed it in everyday use. Battery life is very good, easily lasting all day long with heavy usage. I will state that I’m very knowledgeable on using custom ROMS and so far I’m only using stock G2X system. GPS is instant and perfect. No reboots, perfect from day one.   The above comment about a batch of bad batteries is feasible. Maybe I’m one of the lucky ones. However, my knowledge of rooting and ROMs made me feel I could fix any problems that might occur. I resolved all my problems on my Galaxy S with custom ROMs and internal hardware mods. The only problem (if it could be called that) is that my wifi doesn’t immediately connect when I get home all the time. I sometimes have to manually do it. Otherwise, no problems to report.

  • Taylor

    Returned my G2x. Horrible phone, LG isn’t ready for the big time. T-mobile is doing the right thing. Now they just need to return them all!

  • Liamharden

    So far all the comments are telling me the phone has a software issue, maybe it was more designed for Gingerbread afterall, would not surprise me if they pulled all of them for a while and re-released it with Gingerbread, i have had the same issues with my G2X, for what its worth, its a great phone and i would be sad to know they might have jumped the gun releasing it before all of the bugs were worked out.

  • The Dude

    I am on my second G2x which has the same issues as the first. Other than that, I love the device. It is so cool. Except for the random reboots and lockups (sigh). I keep reading that a “fix is on the way”. Waiting patiently.

    Please T-Mobile… put a priority on this.

  • Anonymous

    It’s a battery problem. I tried an exchange G2X with same battery and had issues. Put a new battery in my G2X and issues went away. I get occasional reboot (once in 3+ days) but no longer get screen of death or overheating. There is a batch of bad batteries out there. Trust me. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6BZWRJOKVCUIZWHMEWABAUBLHQ gfam

      You know, this sound logical. After some boof at T-Mobile’s Blackberry/PDA support told me she was an EXPERT and was 100% sure that the problems we were having was only software related, and I laughed, this sounds plausible. Possibly also related to voltage settings? I dunno…

      • Davidsinaus

        That’s very interesting. It could also explain why the Cyanogen team is getting such bizarre behavior with the battery monitoring logic in the kernel.

    Man no wonder TMO hasn’t been advertising this phone . I love the NBA and I’ve wondered why they only advertise the sidekick on the TMO halftime show . Its all defective & buggy . This the flag ship phone ……I really wanted this phone .

  • Petey

    I heard there’s alot of issues regarding this phone, that’s probably the reason why they pulled it out… That’s why I don’t really trust LG for GSM phone because i remember there were alot of problem back in the days…

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

    Mine doesn’t have much problems.
    Only got 2 random reboots so far (from the day I purchased at launch date).
    No random shutdown.
    LCD backlight bleeding is minimal and it’s NOT visible except the environment is totally dark (my Galaxy Tab also has minimal backlight bleeding).
    Another problem is it can’t read ogg vorbis tags, that leaves ALL files become “unknown” from the music player. Fortunately, I sort these files by folder, so it’s not big deal.
    Except LCD backlight bleeding, I think the rest of them are software/system issue and it can be remedied by future update.

    AT&T confirmed on Wednesday that it will deploy its 4G LTE network in five markets this summer, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. The carrier did not specify additional markets slated to be rolled out in 2011, but it did say 10 additional markets will be deployed this year and 70 million Americans will be covered by the end of 2011. By contrast, Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network is currently available in 55 marketsand it expects to deploy in 23 more markets next month. AT&T said it expects its network to offer LTE data speeds on a par with its competitors. So for all you TMO fans, rejoice! True 4g is on uts way!

      I read that earlier and I’ve seen the commercial. With all those nice rollouts and upgrades it doesn’t APPEAR that they need TMO.

      Certainly that doesnt help AT&Ts case.

      • Guest

        These are things that are worked on for years. They just dont happen overnight. this won’t hurt the buyout at all

    • Zifnab2k

      Why would a TMO fan rejoice? What does 4g LTE on ATT have to do with T-Mobile? I’m assuming you’re referring to the merger? I could care less what ATT does, there’s nothing short of them offering me 10 years free service that would make me switch back to those crooks. F* ATT, I pray they fail at the merger, lest I have to pay almost $900 more per year for a plan that equals my current unlimited plan with T-Mobile. Sprint sucks in LA, so my only choice will be Verizon at almost $1200 more per year. This merger does nothing but empty my pocket out more. I’m more likely to cry than rejoice.

    My G2x is being replaced tomorrow when my SGS2 gets delivered! 
    I have noticed a few issues with it and I must admit that my last phone [HTC HD2 running Gingerbread] was behaving better, less the speed boost that the tegra chip offers. 

    Used for a about 2 weeks and presently up on ebay. Any buyers? :0

    Yeah right that is putting it litely. I had a G2X and it would automatically power off. no questions asked. Major glitch. Every person I knew that had this phone, dozen or more, had an issue with the phone automatically powering off. This happend to me while the phone was just sitting on my desk or in my pocker. Horrible and horrifying. Customer Care acted shocked when they heard of this, I switched to the Galaxy 4g…so far no glitch, but no flash for the camera WTF

    I’ve had my GTX for about a week and the only problem I’ve had is with the Wi-Fi switching back to 4G on its own. Other than that this is an awesome phone. I don’t know maybe I got lucky, but I will say that this is definitely the best phone I have ever owned…

  • youCANTrushAgenius

    my G2X IS FLAWLESS!! not one issue since the day i got it. easy to root, change setting, what not. just to a master reset and it will fix any problems you have, and maybe turning it off once a day might help……just saying, dont be A NOOB!

    • Anonymous

      You’re lolling. A master reset will not fix any of the major reported problems. You think backlight bleeding is a software issue?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6BZWRJOKVCUIZWHMEWABAUBLHQ gfam

    Out of total respect for T-Mobile USA (not it’s German Parent who totally sold us out) I won’t repeat the things T-Mobile Blackberry/PDA told me yesterday, but basically there are some known issues that they (T-Mobile) were not prepared for. What they told me (a PDA tech and PDA Supervisor) was something COMPLETELY WRONG that you just don’t tell customers. I finally got some satisfaction from a T-Mobile Customer Service Manager who set the record straight. The size and scale of the issues must be big enough for this kind of action. We have decided to “deal” with the issues for now unless it gets worse or becomes to bothersome. It was sad though because PDA support was completely useless (and rude) and it took Customer Service to reassure us that our phone could be exchanged, if needed.

    Authorized online dealers are still making it available with no back order, so it must not be a quality control issue or it would seem not even online authorized dealers would still be offering it. Henny Penny the Sky is Falling……..if it was that serious a quality control issue how could it be hidden, there would be a recall, not just a removal of the shelf units.

      I am getting my 3rd mytouch 4g lemon sent to me tomorrow. 
      So far my first one had issues staying connected to Wifi and started to become VERY SLUGGISH. A figured all it needed was a master reset. Fine bingo done it many times with many Android phones. 
      Only prob was when I did the MR none of my apps would and the market wouldnt work. 
      Sent for the replacement. 
      Replacement arrives and I think I am good. 
      RANDOM RESTARTS begin pretty much from day one. They increase to about 3 a day.

    And this why every carrier out there need to take their time with releasing all these devices. I mean don’t get me wrong its cool that we can pick and choose through many devices but then again its not good because there’s always a problem or issue with the device. Back in the day when there was a phone every other few months was released it wasn’t as bad as it is now. So I hope now that we see there is so many issues and flaws with releasing all these phone all at the same time and having us customers having to buy a new phone every month ,is that they wait and wait and make sure the new device is appropriate for released. Take time and make the next phone way better don’t make it look or have the same features as the phone before and update the os’s faster. And this goes for every carrier and phone manufacturer out there. Take more time and give us something to really brag about,not “oh my phone is just the same as yours even though yours came out after mine” lol

    this phones sucked! Bought it when it first came out. Within first our it reboots itself. Three hours later the market freezes. Get home and can’t connect to wifi. Did master reset. Fine first hour. Then try to get on wifi but then shows it using 4g data. Both my wifi anf 4g icons were on but the 4g was being used not the data. Been to many with this phone in south florida in a day and most of the time I had 2g and not 4g. Returned the phone the next day. Got a new one hoping it was just that phone. Guess what same problem with the wifi. Only this time the wifi icon would flash or just not work at all even though it says connected. I was over this piece of sh$$$t! And I’m a loyal andriod customer since I’ve owned the G1, Cliq, Mytouch slide, LG optimus. None of theses phones ever gave me the BS this phone did! Interested to see the sensation but not biting the bullet this time. Ill wait for at least two weeks of reviews before I purchase any phone.

    Two weeks wont cut it! I am having my 4th G2 shipped to me. They are on backorder so it may be a month or more!!! Same issue. Phone reboots without warning. The clowns at tmo couldnt figure it out. Someone on the tmo site deduced that shutting down the gps stopped the problem. So tmo says its a known fault and offers up the HD7 as a solution!!! I starring at the rep. He is laughing. He cant wait for ATT. Has had enough of irate G2 and G2X owners in his face.

    What a joke.

    Iphone on LTE is for me on ATT!

    • Respawn

      LMAO

      I know you’re having issues with your device. Hopefully you get that fixed.

      But seriously, iPhone on LTE? Iphone doesn’t work on Lte. It’s 3G. AT&T doesn’t even have LTE yet and there are no indications whatsoever that the iPhone 4S will even support LTE when it does come out, for AT&T, Verizon or any other carrier.

      Then I’ll be getting an escalated call from you demanding to know why your iPhone isn’t working on the 4G network. Lol

      Seriously, calm down. I hate customers that want to jump ship whenever something goes wrong. Let the whole story come out, give the problem some time to work out. It’s called technology. Deal with it or don’t have a phone.

    The reviews on the Tmobile website for the G2X are high.  Are they actual users of the G2X or is the vendor trying to pull a fast one?

      I posted a comment with 1 star on Tmobile’s website with a negative review about the backlight bleed, software reboots and the gps being bunk. It was promptly deleted within the hour. I know because I checked back a few times to see if they would do it, and sure as hell by the 3rd refresh my post was gone.

      While your I-Phone may be a good device it can not compare to my Samsung Epic 4g with a larger 4 inch screen slide out keyboard and overclocked to 1.3ghz. By the way how many different operating systems can you run on that thing and how many different custom roms and themes are available . I can run Ubanta and android Eclair,Froyo or Gingerbread on the Epic and the Mods available are I would say are Epic in proportion to whats available for your little I- Phone with a 3.5 inch screen and no physical keyboard. Android FTW

      • TypicalWhitePerson

        Nobody cares about the Epic, girl scout!  

        iOS = winning

        • Tortionist

          Actually Android is winning. Android is the number one OS for smartphones for a reason. the I-phone is a mid-level, or mediocre smartphone at best. My rooted G2 beats the hell out of it any-day, what with CM7 running Android 2.3.3, processor over-clocked to 1.7 Ghz, total customization, 1 1/2 day battery life with moderate usage, etc. Hell, even if it weren’t rooted, my G2 would still blow it oout of the water. The I-phone is nothing more than a fad for people who don’t know any better and are willing to accept mediocrity at best and being fooled by a brilliant marketer and businessman who knows how nickel and dime his customers to death. At least I can expand my memory, delete songs without plugging my phone in, pull my battery if it has problems and not have to get a loaner. I have a physical keyboard=33% less typos, as well as SWYPE a very fun, intuitive and fast way of texting. The I-Joke has nothing compared to even the LG Optimus T, except a slightly faster processor, but that’s only if you don’t root and over-clock the Optimus T. So, go ahead and talk your crap, Android rules, IOS will not beat Android out. the only two things IOS had going for it was that it was on the first touchscreen smartphone in the U.S. as well as a brilliant marketer and businessman. It’s way too locked down to ever beat out Android. At least Android has Google behind it.

    bought the G2X on launch day, used it for about 2 weeks. phone is a beast, powerful, fast. But it had a million problems, reboot, screen lag, screen bleed, freezing, wifi problem. I thought i can use it but those problems were just too much. Finally returned it, picked up the HD7, it definitely doesnt compare as far as speed, but im starting to like wp7 & the phone feels good in my hands. il probably will pick up the Sensation. but will never buy a LG or a samsung again, HTC ftw

      I would like to note that they are completely right when it comes to happy customers posting stuff. How many ppl actually post something and go above and beyond to look for forums to post they are happy. NO it rarely happens. As far as i know the g2x is a great phone and yes some devices had minor issues. But hey at least it has coverage unlike vibrant which bars were moving up and down. 

    • Guest

      Ya know, typically they’re right about only angry people posting. But I went and checked through XDA for other recently released devices, and none of them have a complaint list as long as the LG g2x. If this wasn’t such a hot issue, why would this post already have 205 comments? I don’t see this site getting this kind of chatter on any other subject…

      Don’t let people fool you, this thing is busted. Screen bleed on ALL of them. I don’t care what people say, their phone bleeds. They’re just putting a positive spin on it, or purposely ignoring it. I have yet to see a single person that claimed their phone was “perfect” post a picture on any forum proving their phone didn’t have backlight bleed, and the few that tried clearly had bleed.

        While all of the phones may have screen bleed, the question is whether or not the screen bleed is a hindrance to the user experience.  Mine is not.  The steps that I have to go through in order to even see the screen bleed are absolutely not indicative of my normal phone use.  That is not ignoring the issue, but merely stating that screen bleed is not a problem for me (and many others), so no need for me to complain about it at all.

        • Camille

          oh, and since I have had my phone since release day, I have had a long enough time to settle into a daily usage pattern with my phone.  So, I think that I can clearly state that I don’t see the screen bleed with my normal use.

    I get the occasional hard lockup, something I hope gets fixed in Gingerbread when it finally arrives, but overallt G2x treats me well, and I ordered it through amazon the day after retail release.

    Oh boy.  What a Disaster if true.  This sounds just like my HD2 which I’m currently on the 7th replacement (Waiting for the Sensation or Hercules – Have to demo the Hercules 1st though, not big on Sammy Builds).  Anywho, this 7th HD2 actually does reboot itself at least 5 times a day, no joke.  It also is having MAJOR issues with 3G.  It’ll say it has 3G (Full bars even) but a “Cannot connect to Remote Server” Error pops up when I get on Opera sometimes.  The Weather even has Connection issues when it says it has 3G.  Some Phone calls can’t come through even though it says I have Voice Connection.  I hope the G2X doesn’t end up like this HD2.  June 8th, will be the Sensational Day I get rid of the HD2.

      7th? SHNIKEYS you’re a patient/tolerant one, Wilma. I couldn’t keep a phone after three replacements. Had an LG feature phone on AT&T many moons ago. Three replacements and I made Ma Bell replace it with a decent Nokia. That Nokia still runs strong. Ex boyfriend is still rocking it three years later.

    So  they take out the G2x but they leave crap like the cliq 2 on the shelves .  I am on my 3rd replacement to the very issues mention above and I only had the service 13 days.

    I had replaced it twice, and ended up giving it back all together for another MT4G till the Sensation comes out.  It’s a shame because I really wanted this phone, and i tried really hard to rationalize keeping it, but at the end of the day, it was about as useful as my Behold 2, which was far and away the worst phone I’ve ever owned.

    LG not known for phones… Not a good brand.

    • Joanna46

      well Lg may suck in there phone department … but there washers and dryers work really good i dnt have them but my friend does and i seen it with my own eyes how good they wash clothes better than my whirpool washer

      • Atl1_falcons55

        My samsung washer is amazing

        • Tortionist

          Okay, let’s get it straight, Samsung for T.V.s, LG for washers and dryers, HTC for smartphones. The LG OPtimus T is a great low end smartphone that out performs some high end ones, especially if you root it.

        • Hecg 55

          Hmmm idk about that I love my samsung washer but I’ll stick to sony for tvs

    • Bensworld

      LG has a ton of phones out but mid range to low range. This is their first high end phone. They also have a number of other high end phones coming like the LG Optimus Black, Optimus 3D, and Revolution,

      Their TV’s are amazing as well.

    Besides a battery that doesn’t last long enough, I have had no problems with my G2X

    I purchased mine at launch day.
    Mine doesn’t have much problem.
    The phone reboot itself one time (probably I messed it up), and it locked once (from the day I purchase).
    Actually the phone is really good, LCD backlight bleeding is minimal and it’s not enough to annoy me.
    The only REAL problem is inability to read ogg tag, which makes these (a few thousands of them) are treated as “unknown” by music player. I never had similar problem with other Android devices. Fortunately, I sort these files by folders so it’s not a big deal.
    Streaming problem is worked out by using xiialive. You can even use the dedicated streaming engine with G2x with no problem (MT4 has chopping problem when playing aac+ streams).
    The phone is really fast and playing video and games over HDMI is a pleasure.

    Half of them are being either returned or exchanged both online and in stores – and you wonder why they have no merchandise. Their log has to show the number of returns / exchanges on the device – I swapped mine four times, and I know like ten people that did the same, not counting the people that just returned it. This has got to be T-Mobile’s most returned phone to date. Like the post says, this G2x situation has been out of hand since the release date.

  • Sou_timao10

    Friday will be two weeks with this phone. So far no problems and love everything about phone. Had to try 3 stores before found in stock.
