(Updated) T-Mobile Currently Testing G2x Maintenance Release/Gingerbread Update?

Update: We believe this is a market specific opportunity for employees in an as of yet undetermined region. We have been unable to confirm this as a nationwide opportunity for frontline employees. Please don’t post your number or IMEI in the comments, or I’ll prank call you myself. Seriously.

While the mystery of the T-Mobile G2x inventory continues, the much anticipated Gingerbread update is about to get some love through employee testing. According to this internal email T-Mobile frontline employees who are currently using a G2x smartphone might qualify to test Gingerbread and it’s maintenance release on their own personal device. While there have been some rumors about a G2x Gingerbread update coming out this week or the next, with no current date set for this trial it seems likely we are still looking at some time before the update rolls out to the public. Of course we’ll update as we know more!

Hello,

M&P and our product development team will be performing a test for the G2X MR that contains a list of updates to the phone including a Gingerbread upgrade.  We would like to invite all frontline representatives currently using or have a G2X to participate.  Anyone willing to participate will be invited to a page set up in the Community where they can input their findings and comments.  The MR would be sent over the air (FOTA) so all you would need to do is accept the update and allow it to update.

The dates of the test are still being worked out but if you are interested in participating in the test, please respond to this email and include the following information:

  1. User 10 digit phone number
  2. G2X IMEI that will be used for the test

We will provide a comprised list of participants to the business owner byThursday  6/23/2011. Anyone participants in the test will receive a follow up communication with all the information needed once the details have been worked out.

  • Thatcher F

    seriously all we had to know was the email address this came from. Then I wouldn’t be charging my phone 3 times a day. It crashing on me. This should have been ages ago. I do not want to root and flash it on there. I don’t have the time to take that risk.

    • Duane707

      Flashed mine yesterday with a rom from xda. works flawless, however MY G2X worked perfect out of the box, so not sure about the problems everyone else is having on the forums

    Seriously? Posting your phone number on a public forum? I should leave it up and let the prank calls come.

    • Tournstone

      Go ahead and prank call. If they really have a G2X, they are probably recharging for the third or fourth time today and their phone will just crash anyway.

  • Youngt82

    It’s too late. Anyone looking at a G2x should save themselves some time and go with the Sensation. It has a few issues, but far far less than the likes of the G2x.

    • Tantan20171

      G2x has software issues…. sensation has hardware issues I.e. the holding top of the phone kills the data connection and the bottom kills the wifi connection, I also heard people talking about discolored Widgets as well as the screen making a clipping sound due to the extra space in the back of the battery holdster, there’s also the earphone Jack not sounding right…..! The one hardware issue that g2x has is screen bleed… mine has it but its so small and unoticable that I have to point it out to people to see it…. but every other issues that g2x have will be fixed on the update….. also don’t forget that vanilla flavored phones gets update faster than phones with company UI.

      • TweetMo

        Yeah, my Sensation has discolored gray dots on my Widgets every now & then.
        (Wow, that sounded like something a crackhead with STDs would say to his doc.)
        Seriously though… it does. :)

      • Ali

        Listen I have a sensation and mine doesn’t have any of the problems you mentioned. My sensation does lag from time to time but im sure that will be addressed in a future update. I hope you like the screen bleed on your phone cause my screen is perfectly fine. Do your research or try out the phone before you start commenting with nonsense

        • Tantan20171

          Love how u love ur sensation wihtout doing any research….. Google it and YouTube sensation issues…. and like I said the screen bleed is small that its barely visable….. don’t be mad if I jinx your phone :)

        • Ali

          Like I said before I have the phone and I haven’t had these problems there’s no need for me to do research. Whoever experiences these type of issues should exchange there phone.

      It’s rather sad that customers have to visit a third party website to find information that their very own service provider is not releasing.

      T-Mobile keeps everything out of sight until the day it happens and then tells people.

      I wouldn’t doubt some employees of T-Mobile visit this website to get their info as well since they are kept in the dark just like customers most of the time.

    this means we are far from getting the update.  ugh, infuriating.

  • JAZZ

    I was in a TMO store today to get the Sensation, and I noticed that the G2x wasn’t on display. I asked the rep about it, and he said, “it’s already been discountinued.” I replied, “didn’t it just come out (thinking maybe he thought I said the G2)?” And he said, “Yeah, discountinued after only a month.”

    • zps

      discontinued!!!!!?   wtf!?

      It is not discontinued. He didn’t know what he was talking about.
