T-Mobile G2x Officially Hits End-Of-Life Status

We knew this day would eventually come, and so we prepare to say goodbye to the very first dual-core device in the United States, the T-Mobile G2x. We just receive word that the G2x, internal known as the LG LGP999 G2x met its fate on January 6th, just 5 short days ago. The G2x led a troubled life, with rumored “recalls,” Gingerbread delays and angry customers suffering reboot after reboot. Still, the G2x performed very well in our review and held a lot of promise upon landing on T-mobile store shelves. Sadly, the G2x never took off in the way we believed it would, so long G2x, we wish we knew you better.

Now, the real question…what will replace it?

    that really f’s up the G series….such a capable device….gone….please fish it back out to HTC to bring the line back to life…

    • Silk7412

      Hear Hear!!! you are so right!!! HTC Bring the G series with a bang!!! G3 quad core processor- 5 row keyboard -FFcam and PURE ICS Android.That would hold me until the next nexus!

        i couldnt agree more. also add at least a 4inch screen.

          I don’t know, I fell out of love with HTC a while ago, Sense was killing me worse than Samsung’s Touchwiz

          The G-line/series doesn’t use any skins.

  • This is not needed, as this phone was DOA. lol.

    Once they got the bugs worked out of the phone it rocked!!! I had the LG G2x and HTC Sensation. Now I have the galaxy S II. ALL THREE GREAT PHONES AND VERY FAST, well besides the Sensation its slow lol

    • BigMixxx

      that’s my only dread about my sensation.  Compared to the G2x…really..it’s slow…but if you run a custom rom…like a CM7 or ICS that’s senseless….totally different phone…

      • Havoktek

        Mixx you gave up your G2X??…..awe man?? 
        Notice that speed bump ‘eh? er- decline I mean.

        • BigMixxx

          Gave up….phone would not stay stable.  MY First one was ROCK SOLID (after one good custom rom — got 22 hours on a single charge before putting facebook on my phone, removed ).  

          Sensation…good screen…all I can really say….

        Yeah Big Maxx I might have to Root my sensation. It’s been a while since I have rooted a phone. I used to do my HD2 all the time.

    • Anonymous

      Indeed, hate my Sensation, but I kept it too long. Ive been waiting for cm9 to root the phone, but truely think its a p.o.s.. Not only will I not buy another LG product (returned the g2x 22 times before I got my money back), but this may be the last HTC device I ever buy. Certainly the last Sense device. While I know rooting is an option, you’re reliant on faceless devs to build something that works for you, or learn it yourself. toooo much effort for something I have to pay so much money for.

      Oh well, if I ever have extra money I guess i’ll order a GSM Galaxy Nexus

        I just don’t really see the NEXUS being that great of a phone this time. The Note with ATT seems to be a better phone to me. But I’m sure someone will correct me.

    I read reviews on tons of phones, and waited 6 months to purchase this phone. Sadly, I did exactly what I just stated and now I’m stuck with a phone I hate! 

  • Cameron W3st

    Really? End of life? Only 9 months after it came out? And it was supposed to be a flagship device? This is INCREDIBLY disappointing and just another reason I’m taking T-Mobile to court over forcing me to pay an ETF for leaving their terrible, terrible phone company. 

    • etfbs

      I’m not sure why you left tmo, but all I can tell you is that it was your choice to leave. You were given 14 days to change your mind. If it’s a “coverage” issue, I urge you to read section 8 of the t&c. Otherwise, it would be cheaper for you to just pay the etf because you will be sent to arbutration, which they will charge the fees to you for that, meanwhile your bill will go to collections and be charged even more by the collection agency. People who bitch about having to pay an etf are stupid, you knew it was there, you chose to move, get a new phone, etc. make your life easier.. Just pay the fee.

        I also paid $480 for the g2x which never worked. I was on my 4th device when I called it quits and all Tmo would offer me is $100 off a brand new phone…really?

        California has small claims court and as far as I know it’s illegal to charge someone money for service they cannot use

        true, but  the Atrix fell further into obscurity that the G2X.

    • Atrix is the first dual-core in the US, but as the G2x of overseas goes.. the O2x it was the first ever dual-core.

      My LG g2x works fine I got it as a replacement phone for my touch 4g LG is still going to update are phones to android 4.0

  • JM

    Too many people bought this phone because it was very well-liked in tech reviews all over the internet.  Unfortunately, in their rush to be FIRST with their reviews, most of these reviewers only used the G2x for a few hours before starting to write.  This is how it is for most smartphones now.  The only reviews I have any trust in are those that show up at least a week after a device is available to and used by the person who it doing the review. 

  • Anonymous

    so …. no ics for this brick i guess, and lg dropped the ball  on this one , lg should stick to make tvs and refrigerators  not phones, and t mo , you suck as well for not backing up your devises :p

      Don’t blame TMO….Don’t wait for ICS…Should have been done something with it if you weren’t satisfied… Research man…..

      • Gogoplata1980

        The phone came out broken yet he “should have been done something with it?”

        How about the company should have done something with it. 
        You’re a fool if you think it’s acceptable for a company to release a broken product and then expect the consumer to figure out how to reprogram their mess up. I had one. Loved the design and much about it. Until it started freezing and acting a fool. LG’s response? A late update that took away one of the main selling points to the phone, the camera. 

        • Havoktek

          Not a fool, just someone who believes in getting up off my arse and finding out how to make my Tech work for me instead of waiting for Tmoble or LG to provide a fix. Granted everyone is not like me. Granted everyone wants and should have there products work right out the box. However if word hadn’t spread about the issues, there would be any issues. Granted the hardware is good. If you couldn’t work it or it was crashing when purchased, you should have returned it ASAP. When the update came out it fixed a lot of issues yet no one gave a flying crap cause it was already panned and DOA. I feel ya and blame LG for that one. Sorry dude I’m just one of the few that say things don’t work, ok it doesn’t work…whacha gonna do about it?
          One swap out for me and I was set. Even before I rooted it. Sorry just exuasted in hearing people complain whenever a new device doesn’t make it rain for them.
          That’s what you get for having android freedoms, and that’s why people love iPhones…its consistant from start to finish and you dare not touch the OS. Yet no freedom…its like the patriot act…whew did I type that from my G2x???

        • Frank Jacobs

          It’s not just about getting up off your ass…

          As I see it, a lot of people’s G2Xs didn’t work very well from the get-go.Many probably returned them and got something else.

          Plenty of others probably got the same same info that I did from T-Mobile: There’s an update coming soon that’ll fix your issues. Just hang in there. Of course, you can’t wait too long or your 14 days are up and you’re stuck with the phone.

          Now I am all for being proactive and rooting a phone to get software that works on it, but I would dare say that most people aren’t going to do that, and even those who are tempted may decide they don’t want to void their warranty.

          All in all, it ends up being a pretty crappy situation. Either be stuck with a phone that’s dysfunctional, or try to put better software on it and void your warranty. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

        • Havoktek

          I can work with that, point made…..It has been entirely a PR and manufacturing nightmare…hit or miss with people, I’m just glad I got a winner out of it.
          Yet you know LG is going to learn from this and juice up their next devices….if they want to be competitive…

    • EOL means it won’t be sold on store shelves anymore, not not receive updates.

    • Everything LG makes is crap. They used to be known as Goldstar – the world’s landfills are full of their garbage.

  • I just said hello to my new G2x last week :) no reboots, battery life is amazing, IPS panel is great, phone is fast too.

    • You’re lucky. I got mine about 2 weeks ago (for free) and I now can’t stand LG as a company. Battery life with the same usage on my sensation is about 12 hours, verses a full day. I get freezes where I have to pull the battery to have my phone usable again, and the audio quality is terrible.

      Then you have the issue with LG and updates – they take forever.

      • Anonymous

        Micah, try this. Shut your G2x phone off. Take the back off. Pull out both the SIM card and the microSD card. Now “squash” the top of the sim card slot and the top of the microsd card slot. What you’re trying to accomplish is to put a slight bend in the tops of those two slots so that more pressure will be put on the SIM card and the microSD card when they’re inserted. I believe this is the problem with the G2x. I think the thickness varies on some SIM cards and microSD cards and this “fix” just puts a bit more pressure when they’re inserted. I found this out on mine when I couldn’t access the Gallery pictures. Subsequent tests have seemed to verify this for me. Try it and let us know.

        • Thanks for the tips. I’ve tried getting good battery on a number of different roms (stock included) and I just can’t get much battery life out of this device. I haven’t ever had the sim card or microsd card give me problem. Not sure how that would relate to battery life though. I think I may have one of the seemingly many defective devices. I’m waiting for a different battery that I ordered, I’m thinking I might have a bad battery.

        • Well as long as I get 12 hours of heavy use in 4G area, I am fine. Thats how all my smartphones worked since G1 times. Its not uncommon for me to have 50-60% left by the end of work day. I hear Galaxy Nexus on Verizon LTE lasts about 4-6 hours on 1850ma battery !  

      • Anonymous

        About battery life. I used my G2x today from 7am to 6pm pretty hard, and I now have 68% battery life left. Here’s how I do it. (I’m stock btw). Open settings, Applications, Running Applications. Kill the Car Home and any other program non-essential to everyday use. I also turn off the TeleNav GPS app. As for the wifi and gps, they are always left off and I manually turn them on when I need them. My battery life is very good.

  • haters on the rocks

    im guessing its time to root my g2x and live with a cm rom then a stock one. 
    lg ur the last cellphone manufacture i will ever buy again.

     What does this mean for people with issues that use the warranty to get it replaced, etc? Do we get another phone or will they still have stock for this for the near future?

    *shrug* I love my G2x. Works great. Sorry for those who had problems. Get a new phone. 

    • Havoktek

      Ditto…Mad love for my phone, showed it off to the TMO reps that came to our company today. They agree, it had issues but overall after the updated, a damn good phone. I ‘m not gonna bash people that had issues but they gave up on it too easily sad though, no I’m going to have to upgrade to something else this year….
      But if it ain’t dual core…..or Tegra…..Keep it….I like my Tegra games.

      • Sdf

        Gave up too easily?  This isn’t a relationship, it’s a phone.  If a person spend their hard earned money on a phone, they deserve for it to function properly.  It’s simple as that.  They shouldn’t have to hang in there and not “give up easily”.  The G2X was and is a POS phone period point blank.  BTW the tegra is on the low end of the dual core spectrum.

        • Havoktek

          Low end my arse…Its funny how of wasn’t a pos until soneone like you couldn’t handle it.
          I’m tired of speakin’…know this its a solid phone, if ICS was in its future, there would be a ebay buying spree.

        • SladeNoctis

          You have to admit Sdf does have a point, a normal user who is not into the android dev world or isn’t used to trail and error method simply can’t deal what happened to the G2X. We are talking about massive reboots/bootlooping, Screens bleeding, battery level on the same level as the thunderbolt, and much more. Imagine it in their shoes, im getting a new phone its suppose to work and i wouldn’t mind small bugs. The issues the G2X had weren’t small and even LG and Tmo realized this when they stop selling the G2X for a certain time period. They basically sold a beta phone that to tech The phone suffered but horrible software implementation due to LG and Nvidia end. Trust me if they slap a well built version on ICS this phone is worth having for years to come. Personally i stopped using it not for its software but its hardware limitations which was the camera and the ram. 

        • Havoktek

          Point well taken, I have no love for what LG has done, in my defiance i took their bad coded beast and mad it a star.

    • Yes, It is great phone. One of the best displays out there. Nice size and design as well

      • BARZELL2010

        i’m with you on that.. great phone i’ll wait and see if ics pops up on the radar for the G2X.

        • Anonymous

          I loved it. But the freezing up and the Bluetooth constantly cutting out in my car, it became unbearable. So I switched to a galaxy S II. G2X has a better display than this phone. Had it worked fine, I would’ve kept it.for a long time!

        • Don’t expect to see any updates from Samsung.

          That’s pretty much with all manufacturers. However it should be worded as don’t expect to see any updates overnight. It’s the reality.

      • Deucedownatown

        one of the best displays?  NO!  Not with all that bleeding in the backlight.  There are several phones with better screens.  Galaxy s2, Amaze, Rezound, Razr, Galaxy Nexus, to name a few and that’s 5 right there off the top of my head.  The screen is okay, minus the bleeding problems, but definitely not one of the best.

    • Anonymous

      My sentiments exactly. My G2x works so well, I basically have no big ol’ desire to grab a new phone until something really catches my eye. I have a hunch as to what was causing the G2x problems but since its now EOL, guess I’ll just hold onto it.

  • Havoktek

    That is disappointing news. It still blows away many new releases, even from LG. Mine has been relatively free from problems in the eight or nine months I’ve had it.

    I own this phone and I never rooted it. I has locked up on me once in  just over 6 months.  I will only buy stock android phones and I hope T-mobile gets another stock android phone soon.  I love the G2x but I would like ICS in the next 4 months if possible if not I will have to get another phone from T-Mobile but only if its runny stock from the factory 

    • The version of Android on the G2x isn’t stock…but close to it.

      • Anonymous

        As close as you can get without going nexus. Personally I can’t think of anything that is customized on my 2.3.3 g2x, whereas froyo had a custom camera(which actually performed better), besides all the carrier locked crapware additions.

  • Seabreezecool

    Screw T-Mobile. At least that’s what I said after paying $63.00 a month for the last 7 years for talk-only, no text, no internet, and this was on their loyalty plan???? I got a G2x (used, but new condition), for $180.00 and loved it so much I bought another used one for $150 also like new to have as a spare. The first one has Gingerbread update and the second still has Froyo 2.22. Anyway T-Mobile would only drop $10.00 a month from my loyalty plan price, but only if I signed a two year contract. I don’t like contracts and in fact never had one with them, instead I paid a fee to not be under a contract. Anyway, with all those taxes and fees it’d still be around $53 a month just for talk, I bought the G2x after researching the phones that are compaitble with Simple Mobile and said “see ya” to T-M, and now for a flat $40 a month, I get unlimited talk- text- internet on Simple Mobile.

    Before anyone starts bashing Simple Mobile, just know I’m happier than a dear in the woods getting evrything I do with SM for $23 less per month than just-talk with T-M, and anything negative about SM will Simple-y, fall on deaf ears. T-M wouldn’t offer anything better or talk about any data plans or any other lower cost options, so I say screw ’em.  Long live the G2x on other carriers! It simply kicks ass!

      Well, you didn’t really say “see ya” to T-Mobile, because Simple Mobile is just a reseller using T-Mobile’s network.  Although T-Mobile makes less in this scenario, they’re still making money off you.  Also, that is also a 3G only plan, their $60 plan is needed for 4G service.

      • Rob

        Despite what some misinformed or purposely lying reps may say, there is no such thing as a “3G only plan.” There is no such thing as a T-Mobile “4G Sim Card” either. T-Mobile’s so-called “4G” is nothing more than faster 3G. It’s like saying a car with a faster V6 engine is a “V8”.

        If your phone has the processor, then it will connect to T-Mobile’s HSPA network and get whatever speeds its processor supports, even with no data plan or a legacy plan like T-Zones.

        The whole “4G” crap is pure marketing BS…all smoke and mirrors to sell you a more expensive phone/plan.

        • There is a such thing as a 4G SIM card. They are referring to the new-generation 3FF UICCs that support the evolved USIM program used for HSPA+ and LTE.

    • bye bye…btw Simple doesn’t own their own network.

    I believe the problem why this phone never got fully of the ground is because of all the problems it had when it first came out. EVERYONE was complaining and waiting for them to fix the issue and they took to long with it. My friend had to exchange his 5 times in 2 months cuz of the same issues. They finally gave him the sensation after much fighting. Sucks though cuz now the phone is fixed and actually good

  • nerdlust

    I almost bought this phone, but last minute decided to get the sensation black Friday deal. One of my friends got it recently and it has been solid no issues super fast. Perhaps they fixed all the issues he uses about 10gigs of data per month I say that to say he’s always on it with no problems or lag.

    if you want to be in love with your phone and android get a galaxy s 2!!

      • BigMixxx

        tough call..both have a natural overlay of some skinned product (Touchwiz for Samsung, Sense for HTC), both have a pretty decent camera.
        Samsung’s device may be more to your liking.  ICS for the AMAZE will still be laden with Sense and touchwiz will be a thinner layer.  By far, the screen on the Galaxy S II is really nice….

        the AMAZE may be more aesthetically pleasing….but if you have large hands like I do…it does not matter.

        The Galaxy S II is a very nice LOOKING phone…sexy even.  

        LAstly, I’d say he a t mobile store and play with them.  If you like Sense, HTC all the way.  If you like a more basic feel…Galaxy s II…

    I like the size of the phone, not to huge and not too small.Just got the phone about 2 months ago pretty solid overall but it does have some connectivity/battery problems.  Sometimes after charging the phone I am not able to receive/send calls, rebooting the phone resolves this issue.  As others have stated if there is no official ICS update than its going to be rooted.

  • No surprise here…after all, it’s been out 8 1/2 months.

    So we can probably kiss an official ICS goodbye. Doesn’t matter. The only way to make the phone work right is to root it.

    But that’s the first and last time I’ll buy anything made by LG.

      Cliq got Froyo after it’s end of life.

        No it didn’t.  The Cliq XT didn’t even get Froyo, unless you rooted it and put a custom ROM on it.

    I was comparing my G2X to an SG2 at a TMO store today. The SG2 would stutter, and lag, while my G2X is fast and smooth. Mine has been flawless, but it was sent to me with Gingerbread already installed. G2X build and look is much nicer too. Not bad for a phone that loyalty gave me for free, and I’ll just use my upgrade when something upgrade worthy comes along. My G2X appears to be a workhorse that will serve me well for some time to come.

    • BigMixxx

      It is a very, VERY powerful phone, much more power than the sensatio.  There is not future left in the device….so, without developers help, you are truly left with a phone, that in about 4 months, will truly have no future.  

      LG seems to be a bad developer of phones for T mobile.  I can’t give them any more of my money.  They have just thrown samsung off of my no-buy-shit-from-you list…

      • Anonymous

        I tend to agree. I have new unlocked iPhone 4S, Nexus One, and Nokia E7. I’ll use my upgrade when something really special comes to TMO. If ever.

      • Deucedownatown

        Very VERY powerful phone?  I beg to differ.  The Tegra 2 is at the low end of the dual core proccessors.  The G2X is a decent phone (when it’s functioning properly) but I’d hardly call it a powerhouse.  Really, I’d put it on par with the Sensation, especially considering it has less memory throughput than the Sensation.  Though I find both devices rather underwhelming.

        • BigMixxx

          Imagine if Apple would have stayed with IBM; imagine IBM getting their isht together and able to manufacture the Power Line REAL cheap.  Instead of waiting until the 3 or 4th iteration of intel core technology in Mac’s, You would be seeing Power 8 in a mac pro running at 6 gigahertz..  Monster speed.

          Firmly believe the nvidia chipset is much faster, or should I say much more capable the Snapdragon….for when it was released…it’s a horse…
          While I love my sensation; I run ICS. Ver capable rom……sense kills it.  Even running with a good CM7 or ICS…there is something stuck. (one core active until it’s too busy)

          Try this…
          A simple test of the raw power is in video decoding.  Run a divx rip on both a g2x and and sensation in hardware mode.  The G2x KILLS the sensation.  The sensation becomes chopy, and the movie runs a little degraded.  Run the G2x in hardware mode — it’s a very smooth experience.  

          You can state, quote, and fact  up X Y and Z as much as one would want, and I firmly believe you. But the g2x is properly powered yet so underrated….

    I want a new G-Phone. Made by HTC. With a keyboard. HTC makes the best phones if they want to.

    • HTC Fan

      Absolutely! HTC need to make the G3. My G2 works like a gem and I would only upgrade with a HTC built phone. Shame on tmo for killing g2 so soon anyway for that piece of crap g2x. Here’s to better things.

  • Anonymous

    Anyone think that this means we’ll be able to get something else as a replacement phone?  I heard reports awhile ago that they were swapping them for sensations, but I spoke to the loyalty/retention dept the other day and they said that the G2X was its only replacement.  I’ve had this thing since the day it came out and I wanna get rid of it…what do you guys think?

    • Dominique

      LOL, they’re still replacing the Mytouch 3G slide and that’s been EOL for a very very long time.  It depends on their stock they have of refurbished models.

        Lol that sucks…Knowing how many people returned their devices, they probably have TRILLIONS…  ok trillions might be a SLIGHT exaggeration, but still…enough to last us until the next ice age (or at least another year and a half from now at our upgrade eligibility)

    • My friend just got a Sensation as a replacement last week after going through 3 G2X’s in a month.

        Mine is rooted with stock gingerbread…I tried CM7 and a couple others and they were kind of laggy on my phone.  It worked AMAZINGLY for awhile but its getting slower and slower by the day.  Any suggestions?  

        I have a different kernel and my CPU overclocked to about 1.4ghz, and it drops down to 400 with the screen off.  I have GO Launcher EX on there also.  I’m pretty new to all this though so I’m looking for tips for maximizing the both speed and battery life.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!  

        On a side note, I recently purchased a new battery from Anker and my battery life has jumped up dramatically.  You gotta love how T-Mobile won’t cover a new battery when the manufacturer only warrants it for 90 days.

  • GinaDee

    Worst phone I’ve ever owned; all 3 of them.  Constant freeze ups, random reboots and screen blackouts.  I loved waking up in the AM only to see my phone completely wiped/erased on 5 different occasions.  Did I mention this thing would camp out on EDGE or GSM only for no reason?

  • phong nguyen

    That’s too bad, it’ll probably delay the G2x’s ICS update from Tmobile even more than LG’s delay. Doesn’t really matter, as soon as my contract ends i’m switching to either Verizon or AT&T, in my area (South Orange County) Tmobile has gone in the drain. I am constantly getting signal loss where text messages fail to send at all and calls become distorted and i’m forced to hang up and call again and again until it becomes clear. T Mobile’s lack of devices also makes me want to leave this forsaken mobile carrier even faster, AT&T not only got the Skyrocket(Hercules with LTE) but they are also getting the Skyrocket HD, Sony Ion, and the Xperia Arc HD along with tons of other devices, what does T Mobile have in store? Galaxy S Blaze 4G? Yawn. I don’t care about LTE but damn get us a device that can be considered top end, the Galaxy S Blaze 4G will no doubt be just the Galaxy S with beefed up internals, meaning no Super AMOLED Plus but Super AMOLED, and the resolution most likely would stay the same and probably a 5MP camera vs the 8 that’s on the Galaxy S II.

  • So the sidekick4g hasn’t reach EOL yet? its terrible froyo weak  3mp cam

  • Big T

    Please, let’s hope the G3 comes this summer, just in time for the people who bought both the G1 and G2 at launch and have another upgrade coming.   Make it an HTC product with stock Android and a real keyboard and that’s my next phone. 

    Also, keep the bloatware to a minimum, and now CarrierIQ (doesn’t really matter for me, I’m going to root it anyway).

    • tmojoe

      That sound beautiful, & I own a galaxy s2 with a Note on the way since Im done with Tmo phones(will have to carry a hot spot of course). I think you guys deserve a FREE upgrade just for struggling with all the problems of the g2x! Unfortunatly, I highly doubt that theh wont stack the phone with bloatware, or leave it in vanilla form, but whatever they have at the time, you g2x owners should br entitled too! I say anyone who can afford it, should not even buy tmo phones & just go the unlocked route! Carrying a hotspot with me & running a galaxy note is still cheaper than any acceptable vzw or at&t plan, plus the note blows any us phone off the map! Im over all these look alike phones the us carriers put out!

  • Big T

    Also, since the G2X was such a flop, anyone who bought one should be able to get the G3 at full upgrade price when it comes out.

    • Timb28

      Great point!!!

  • Ianmf28

    I bought this phone the week they released it, not the best device I’ve ever had.  I also get the random reboots and sometimes I would have to pull the battery and put it back to even get the phone to power on.  I never got the OTA update (first or second rollout).  Phone says current software is the latest version.  Oh, and since I only have a mac I can’t even update the phone manually.  Thanks LG!!!!

    I probably won’t buy another LG phone (actually I might move away from Android completely) but I know I won’t buy any new phone until a few months have passed after release just so I can actually read about user reviews/issues and not some glowing fluff review from someone who had the phone for 3 days.  I just want a nice Nokia (and of course they release the Lumia 710 and not the 800, jerks).  Those bricks were always rock solid and lasted forever. Maybe this EOL deal is why, for some reason, the T-mobile website says I’m eligible for upgrade pricing on any phone even though I’ve only had this phone since March.  Has anyone else seen this?  According to their upgrade policy, I shouldn’t be eligible for this for another 12 months.

  • hating tmo right now

    Having same problems with samsung exhibit II. phone freezesvdaily & have to remove battery to restart. Tmo rep tells me thats a known issue & they wont replace..tough luck. It also seems to have a weak processor that cant load so phone starts power cycling for hours. Also numerous people are having texting problems too. Its a disaster thats gonna add to churn rate.

    • TmoUSPloyee

      go to another store/rep, i would definitely switch that out for you, we can do a warranty exchange for freezing/crashing on your device.  And yeah im also a rep.

      • TmoUSPloyee

        Havent seen it be a weak processor either, sounds like something wrong in the system files.  As long as its non damaged or anything like that, did you call over the phone?  Go to a store, we tend to be more merciful towards customers needs than over the phone. Hope this helps.

  • i Freakin loved my g2x! Of course it was rooted running cyanogenmod 7.  sad to see it go. 

  • LGHater

    LG is the worst company to produce any electronics. I have wowed not to buy any LG products ever

  • Parth Jayaram

    you know it’s sad. The G2x was a phone to be reckoned with. Dual core, good display, the works but the fact of the matter is that it was limited by incomplete testing and not up to the mark software (not talking about android). Plagued by issues, it was a fail because Lg didn’t plan this phone’s release and software updates properly……. the least they can do is give us official ICS as a parting gift and release the source code..

    check out my blog at http://www.technationindia.com

  • I never had any problems with mine…. Maybe it’s because I had it rooted within an hour of purchase, but I’ve considered this the best phone that I have ever owned and ridiculously fast!  

    LG’s software and service flat out pisses me off though.  I would be hard pressed to ever buy another device from them.  

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      I think you are correct Jason. From everything I read at the time (back when I was considering buying the G2x) people who rooted the phone did not have any problem whatsoever with the phone.

      It was something in the G2x’s coding that was on the fritz, no doubt conflicts with the LG user shell and Android. Hardware wise, LG makes a great product (witness the LG Optimus line, a great phone, especially for the price. And my LG Esteem with Android 2.3.3, that Verizon sells as the LG Revolution, for $560 retail, has been trouble-free, works great, and is pleasing to use.)

      Unfortunate for TMOUS G2x purchasers, T-Mobile customer support was no longer equipped to troubleshoot phones when customers called with complaints. Then and nowadays it is simpler and cheaper to send the user a different phone. But the replacement phones had the same bugs as the phones returned on a warranty claim. End result, T-Mobile looks bad and the customer swears off T-Mobile.

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    Every mobile operator has its lemons. The trouble with the G2x is that it exacerbated the degradation of TMOUS’ reputation.

    TMOUS as a going concern was already on an express train to business hell: with the pending acquisition, customer service issues, and a declining subscriber base. It did not need a troublesome handset added to the mix.

    To be sure, in the U.S. wireless war an operator like TMOUS could ill afford even
    one lemon in its high-end mobile lineup; and considering that the G2x was billed by TMOUS as a
    first cabin device, the volume of complaints was akin to getting lemon juice in your eye (that happened to me, man did that hurt).

    The injustice in all this was that T-Mobile was left holding the bag and got the bad rap, while LG skipped on its merry way, escaping public scrutiny for putting out this POS (that characterization based on TMoNews club member comments and hands-up-in-the-air exasperation by T-Mobile). 

    At the end of life for the G2x TMOUS ended up taking the hits (aka irate purchasers calling customer service). In the meantime, allegedly LG did nothing to fix the problem, it simply enjoying the public perception that it was a manufacturer of quality products — somewhat accurate, I guess, in that other LG products have been favorably received, reviewed and rated — A tip o’ the hat to LG for that amazing feat since the “G” in “LG” references “Goldstar” (South Korea’s General Electric), a company that in the old days dispatched to U.S. shores and shelves horridly cheap electronics, typically sold at stores like Walgreens and K-Mart. You know the junk I mean, “300 watts of thundering stereo horsepower, AM/FM stereo radio, CD player, lighted dial, street-party mode, three-level turbo bass selector switch, all contained in a distinctive blue and red plastic case, for only $69.95 retail.”

        Sidenote: I am posting the copyright notice for a reason. There’s some issues with purported authors stealing my stuff (content, not just writing style). One writer took my entire published article, reworded it, changed things around a little and posted it as an original work. I assume he thought because it was two years later I would not notice, but I did because CNN did a piece based on “his” article. He was lucky I did not contact his publisher and get him fired.

        Anyway, the lazy f#@! are really pi$#ing me off, but because this is not my main occupation it is not worth my time doing anything. (Albeit my publisher wants to go after those su?ol?ss?, but because I am the copyright holder, a condition I insist on because I won’t let give permission to do it. The notice should make them think twice.

    i broke my after 3 months angry everday !!! burn on hell G2x !!!

  • G2xstinct Stank Stunk

    Angry customer. Yes. that’s me.
    My second G2x has even more issues than the first one.
    Rebooting bug, leaky screen, random factory resets,
    jitters, all kind of recharging problems….
    And LG support has been nonexistent.
    I will never buy another electronic device from them.

    I’m not too happy with T-Mobile either.

    My first TMo Android phone was HTC’s Mytouch 3g:
    underpowered, flimsy and hobbled with a USB Headset.
    Well, at least it came with a headset, unlie the G2x.

    TMo has really worked hard to lose my business.
    The $20 shipping and handling  for the replacement
    phone was money down the sewer and the children who
    masquerade as representatives were comically ignorant at best,
    disastrously wrong at the worst. Their primary job responsibilities seem
    to be pointing out the payment booth, flirting with each other and directing
    drunk and simple folk to Cricket when they can’t afford to pay for their
    “value plans” anymore.

    The only sensible advice I got was from another customer:
    “root the POS.” too bad I don’t have a Windows machine.
    (And since I’m on a roll here’s a shout out to those other Lemon Factories: Gateways, Dell,
    Compact, HP… I can only say that you have made Apple the giant it is today.)

    Here in downown Santa Fe, my state capital, I get dropped calls daily.
    And the “”new” Tmo over-the-phone customer service is tedious clumsy and impersonal..

    Seems like they have learned little form the ATT debacle…
    other than disdain for their customers.

    So given that Blackberry’s newest antique, the Bold 9900 bricks while charging,
    the Winmo UI looks and feels like it was made for the elderly, and Android software/hardware
    interface is basically a crap-shoot, what brand of smart phone — and who’s service–  do you
    think I will buy when my current contract finally runs out?

    Where do you think my money will go?
    Churn indeed….

    • Aszczep

      someone’s mad they were to cheap to buy the php on their device which waves your 20 dollar fee, also you picked the device not t-mobile, windows is for the elderly? typical ignorant, uninformed consumer. why in the world would you want a UI and device that works.

    I had a defective G2X and had it replaced under warranty by TMO, now its like having a whole new phone. All the problems I once had with the phone are gone! I am glad I paid for the warranty. I’m not holding my breath for Ice Cream Sandwich, if I hear word that its not coming (which is likely), I will root then. But so far I am loving the phone, although the first one I got was hell.

    is tmobile getting any nice phones this year? nothing was announced at CES at all.. no nexus, no galaxy note.. nothing  pfft

    • Anonymous

      Lets think about this when has T-MOBILE ever announced a Nexus? Never thats because it was an unlocked google device. Now i don’t really think you could call this new nexus true and unlocked at least our version because everyone is getting a carrier branded one. Maybe t-mo didn’t want to pay to have it branded on our network and hence why we probably wont see one soon and if we do its already too late for this nexus good luck actually being sold as it would have in december. I hope t-mobile gets as good phones as they have last year with the htc amaze and gs 2 to end the year MyTouch slide4g was good. I hope Samsung remakes the sidekick again this time with the previous issues resolved plus updated to ics and so on.

        You misunderstood what I wrote,1)Target was giving away HTC Sensation free to new customers and upgrades.(don’t know if they are still doing it. In Dec.they had a sale on
        SG2 for $99.00,that’s where got mine from.)In stores only. 2)When I wrote $60-80. I was
        referring to phone’s that reach the eol with Tm. Like LgG2x as a prepaid phone. Radio shack was selling Nokia 5230 for $29.00 just to get rid of their Tm stock. If tm did this with all their phones that reach eol and sold them as prepaid phones let say for $99. They would be gone like 123!

    With no disrespect intended, the device should work, right out of the box.  You should not have to read encyclopedic volumes of reviews and research to get something that should simply work.   

    • You’re right – it should work as advertised. But it doesn’t because LG products suck.

  • I’ve had my G2x for 5.5 months with 2.3.3 already installed.  I love it!  It gets buggy every so often, but not enough to be a nuisance.  Does anyone have advice how to root it with 2.3.3 installed?  I’m sad to see this phone reach ‘end of life’.  It’s probably my all time favorite phone.

    • Artifintelacs

      You don’t really root it. There is a program called nvidia flash. Also, it comes with a one click app so it’s relatively easy to do. You can find it on xda developers in the g2x android development thread. It is done via pc or Mac. The drivers are included in the package. There is so many custom roms and kernels available. Once you overclock the device it is stupid. Fast. Also, the custom roms make. It very stable. Any questions just drop me an email at artifinteltim@gmail.com

  • EOL means nothing to me. This phone was great and it had a great run. I just hope this doesn’t kill the ICS upgrade for the G2x. I hope LG mans up and just gives us the upgrade anyway.

  • I have come to the conclusion that TMobile phones are nothing but the left overs of AT&T. They showed me that at CES AT&T gets 2 gorgeous WP7 devices the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC TiTan2 tmobile gets The Nokia Lumia 710 and The HTC Radar. They have done anything possible to lose my business and come March or whenever the 900 comes to AT&T I’ll pay the $200 and jump ship. I love Tmo but they’re just inferior to everyone else when it comes to devices. Even their Android devices are inferior to that of Verizon and At&T I mean come on Tmo how fast are you trying to go out of business?

    • ogopogo

      It is interesting to me to read some of these sentiments. As a consumer, I would normally make a decision based on multiple factors. In this case – device, service, and pricing. I am amazed that there are so many people on here that make a decision based solely on particular phone (at least that is what they say until they have to cough up the ETF – at which point pricing becomes the biggest factor).

      You’re on T-Mobile. Enjoy what you have. If you would like to jump ship at a later date, that is your decision, but I don’t think that T-mobile is going out of their way to lose your business. The devices are not inferior, but rather not to your liking.

        No in some ways you are wrong, a friend call me up asking me would tm be good for he ma. Her mother wants to leave Sprint,because they werenot going to renew her on the plan she has(somekind of longtime deal Sprint has for their customers.) Her ma doesnot want touchscreen,or a smart phone. The only decent midrange phone Tm has in it lineup for older people is the Nokia x2,with it so-so camera. One flip phone by
        Samsung. I told her after checking out Att lineup of midrange phones,I had to tell her go to Att.  You can go to Att.site checkout midrange handset,compare them to Tm. People that don’t want or need smart phone where do they go? To another carrier that have decent midrange phones!   As a side note,Target has the HTC Sen for free,for upgrades and new customers! Don’t know how long! Check it out!  Instores only!
        No I don’t work for Target! or for Att.

        • ogopogo

          What you have described indicates that they are more concerned about pricing, and not the phone itself – which definitely meets the point I was making. 

          You basically pointed her in a direction (device) that was not in line with her primary motive of leaving (pricing).

        • Anonymous

          Have u read what I wrote? She doesnot want atouch screen or a smart phone. She just want to talk and text. No data. The price would be more just about the same for her! Remember Att. has roll over mins!
          Tmo midrange phones just plan suck! She didnot leave Sprint yet.
          If I just wanted a just simple flip phone for myself,I would not get it from Tm! I would leave myself!

          Ogopogo is correct. If her sole concern was talk and text then a cheap prepaid plan would have been a better choice than a contract with att.

          but i did check the mid range phone’s on At&t.
          they have at least 3-4 sliders phones(that they were selling 3yrs ago.) I believe 4 flip phones also. She could get a go phone with them,and $50.00 for everything! I checkout the plans At&t,has with Tm,
          for her needs about the same cost!

          You didn’t read what I wrote. She didnot leave Sprint yet. How will At&t do that? Since nearly all their phones are 3 g? He also he said if the buyout doesnot go thru, it will be higher prices for everyone. I would like to see how At&t is going to do that.What he said  is for all cell companies! not just At&t.

          Telling your friends mother to go to AT&T was stupid. You should’ve asked if a lower monthly bill was important to her. Most people not only want a decent phone but a lower monthly bill also.

          Not sure how much she is paying now. She doesnot need data. She only needs mins,and text.  I look at the midrange phone tm has.
          They just plan suck! What she needs,it would be the same price!
          Again she doesnot want a smart phone or touch screen! She has left Sprint yet.

      •  I understand what you’re saying but where I’m getting at is that Tmo doesn’t give you options when it comes to OS. I’m a WP7 user I ‘ve had Android before and it’s just not for me i wont turn back to it. As far as WP7 phones I have very very very little options on TMo is either the Radar a midrange phone or The Lumia710 another midrange. my point is why not offer atleast one high end phone on every OS instead of giving us to mid range phones?. AT&T might be a little more expensive or alot more depending how you look at it but at least they give you options. Tmo to me right now is looking like a sinking ship that that’s going down little by little. just my opinion.

    • I don’t think that “gorgeous” and “Windows Phone 7” belong in the same sentence.

      But if you’re a Windows lover, I guess you like ugly, dumbed-down interfaces.

      • ok see this is what i don’t understand just because is not your cup of tea doesnt mean you have to put it down….The Nokia Lumia 900 is a gorgeous device in my opinion and alot of other peoples opinion but if that’s not your opinion then that’s your opinion. If what you’re trying to say is that Android looks better than WP7 again thats your opinion but I think other wise. and almost everyone that has seen my current phone (Dell Venue Pro) would disagree with you too. I love the function of windows phone I’ve had terrible experience with android (Lagging and shutting off, freezing etc.) but that’s my experience not yours. If you love android and it works for you then that’s you whatever. But just because you don’t think WP7 devices and OS aren’t gorgeous that I’m gonna feel the same way you do. That’s why we all have our preference just because it looks ugly to you it doesn’t mean is ugly I guarantee you that 9/10 people you show the Nokia Lumia 900 to will tell you thats a beautiful phone.

          I’d hafta agree there, G4tro.  That Lumia 900 is beautiful, so is the 800…  So is the N9, if the N9 were coming cheaper, I’d scoop it up in a heartbeat….

          Me too. Love the N9. That said, as a user experience with the 710 in the store recently, I was quite impressed. How being a part of the microsoft ecosystem daily….well not sure about that. I didn’t see anything  but fluid, smooth, UI behavior. I just got the iPhone 4S, (my first iPhone) and the 710 is very smooth like the iPhone. I think Windows is tainted by the Windows of old, and it might take cutting edge hardware of the kind of beauty that Nokia is known for to save microsofts hiney. If the 900 came to TMobile, I’d be seriously tempted to use my upgrade. I’m saving it for something special….lets see what TMOs got for 2012.

        • BigMixxx

          N9 great hardware…good software solution.

          I really don’t like windows mobile.  There is no uniqueness to the product set.  Every release is the same.  Very similar to iPhone.  But it’s that, which will make it successful, because the same experience can be held across devices.  

          I recognize it, I see it.  I will wait until it at least catches up with Android….

        • Don’t know about the specific phone, but WP7 is pitiful. Despite what Monkey Boy may be telling people, it’s not doing well in the marketplace. And if they keep the same horrid interface as the developer release of Windows 8, it’s going to bomb in the marketplace bigger than Vista and ME combined.

          Well said!

      It’s tempting to jump ship for a beauty like the 900. I’ve been with TMO many years, and it’s because I get good rates, and great customer service. They always do something to keep me from thinking about leaving. It’s easier for me though. I have a Nexus One, Nokia E7, unlocked iPhone 4S purchased from Apple, and the G2X TMO gave me for free in Sept. (which works flawlessly). For those who can’t buy unlocked phones, which is my preference, the Nokia Lumia 900 is one hell of a temptation and opportunity. I’m impressed with how smooth the UI is on the 710. As far as I’m concerned, the 710 is one of the best deals I’ve seen in some time. Can you imagine the 900 with Android on it? (which I agree is a bit twitchy compared to IOS and Mango). But Android is outstanding never the less.

    Hm, about time. G2 deserved a longer life than than this G2x. LG pos.

  • Vegas214

    Never again will an LG product be bought with my hard earned money.

  • diamonds

    T-mobile has horrible customer service, even tho the mytouch 4g is discontinued there still sending me the piece of crap phone through warranty. Im better off with at&t.

  • Khamikaze

    This is totally outrageous…

    Can LG and T-Mobile do this? even though the G2x is still under warranty and they have not fixed it?
    LG and T-Mobile is adding G2x to Infant Mortality statistics…

    i bought the phone the first day it came out may 20, 2011 and from the second day on i had nothing but problems. I will never buy another LG phone. i don’t care if it cooked meals for me and kept me young forever! Well maybe if it kept me young…….. lol Other than that LG is officially black listed when it comes to their phone products. The LG G2X sucked!!!!! point blank! I’m surprised it lasted this long

    • Mitch

      I bought mine the day it came out too… typing this on it actually. I rooted it and had CM7 on it within 2 months tho… it became a fine device once that was done.

  • Factura5

    i went on tmobile.com and theyr giving away lg g2x for free. free 4g phone!

  • Android4lyfe.com

    They are giving away G2X for an alternate exchange when you warranty out select high end android phones that are being discontinued

  • dariel

  • Sixlence99

    i guess i’m part of the few that loves adn has no problems with this phone as of yet.  i still boast it around my work place.  i’ll grab another g2x if i see it reduced in 3rd party stores.  i need a good back up phone while my primary is charging.

  • Anonymous

    If you want an android phone the g2x is the one to get. Great third-party rom support, large used market with the cheapest price available for a modern, dual-core phone, and it’s even officially going to get ICS. $200 for a brand new android phone running ICS is a steal. I’m going to ride out ICS and Jelly Bean with this phone in hand.
