The G2 Has Started Shipping, Has Yours?

Now don’t worry if your order hasn’t populated yet as this isn’t working for everyone. According to Mr. T1 Connect, our resident TmoNews forum (speaking of which, have you joined the discussion in our forums?) guru T-Mobile G2 pre-orders have started to show up in UPS’ system for at least a small number of people. Want some instructions to see if your G2 is on the way? Jump to this forum thread!

So while it’s still early in the game, sound off below if your shipping order is now showing up and giving you an arrival date! As an extra bonus, we’ve included four more shots of the G2 sized up to a Nexus One!

      CONFIRMED: Just accessed my tracking number with ups and scheduled for delivery on the 30th!!!
      Followed the instructions at top of this page and I did not use dashes.

      • tabecho

        ups updated on mine further too…in transit with delivery on the 29th

  • Danny

    My order was “processed,” today per an automated email but the UPS site hasn’t been updated. I expect it will be tomorrow.

    I upgraded 2 lines at full price: $499.99 plus CA. tax.

  • twandizzel

    I have a mytouch slide 3g and feel vwry disappointed in the underperformance of this fon from workmanship to just 600 mz. With everything this fon is coming with 800 SNAPDRAGON processor and 720 video recording I am excited!!!

    • tehandroid

  • JoshL

    Nothing for me… starting to get anxious. I just want to finally have my phone. After 4 months, I don’t think I can make it another week!

    • JoshL

      Just checked and it says that my Billing info was received. No delivery date though..

  • mtnman

    Mine hasn’t came yet, ohh wait, I didn’t order one. That explains it. I’m holding off untill the MyTouchHD comes.

    • Frigadroid

      Me too, Im stuck with the vibrant for now but that’s not so bad. My wife wants the ffc, so I will upgrade her on the mthd and throw her sony erickson out. She doesn’t know it yet but I will be able to track her like an animal on android, it will be much easier to find her in the casino. When she learns how to locate me I can always blame the vibrant gps if I am somewhere I shouldn’t be. “No honey I was at the hardware store across the street from the Korean massage parlor you know how the vibrant gps is.” lol

  • Andrew

    Omg the phone looks so cool

  • aaronhowardnm

    I have at least my tracking number now. My current status on UPS is set at Billing Information Received which if I understand correctly means UPS have picked it up from T-Mobile but has not scanned it into their system at a sorting facility?? But still I am am thrilled that it is on it’s way but none may be more happy about this than my wife is so as she puts it…”I will stop whining everyday on where it is and why hasn’t it shipped” LOL

  • Rob

    Well i checked mine and it looks like i will be getting mine early! its says that the estimated delivery date will be on Friday October 1…what an awesome way to begin the weekend!

    w00t!! 2 days and I’ll be holdin’ my new G2!!!


    Mine is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow 9-29. I’m going rush home from work thats for sure!

  • Myg1

    This phone is making me drool even tho I have a vibrant..its like a sexy nexy all will love it!!!

  • DualMonitors

    any new yorkers here? does anyone know where the G2’s going to nyc are coming from? i heard they are coming from Atlanta. i have my tracking number but i don’t have a date of delivery yet, since it’s only at the “billing info received” stage at this point.

    • Herinel

      i live like 30 min upstate from NYC and if its from atlanta where it usually comes from then it shouldn’t take more than 1 day 2 the most. I’m anxiously awaiting mine also lol.

  • DaveC

    No shipping info yet, and the order status page on T-Mobile’s site says I’ll get it on Oct 6. Earlier would be nice, but I’ll be happy as hell to get it on the 6th.

    • Original G1er

      Where did you find your order number? I don’t know mine… And I ordered the phone on the first day..

      Also got a text saying the order is being processed and I’ll get a text with a shipping number when it ships..


  • Matt

    Thursday for me!

  • Felix

    Mine should be arrive tomorrow. According to UPS it shipped today and should arrive from KY tomorrow (I am in Alabama).

  • Taylor

    just a quick question, did you guys have to pay by credit card over the phone when you pre-ordered or does it just get added to your next bill?

    • Felix

      They just added it to my balance, and split it up over 20 months. Cheaper than a 2 year contract

      • Taylor

        well I’m going to be under a 2 year contract and don’t think my parents will want to do the spread out payments since I’m paying for it.

  • Justin

    Mine has shipped also. I choose regular ground. UPS is saying it’s in transit and out for delivery by this Thursday… Live in KS

  • Mel P

    Seems like the ones headed to NYC are waiting for their final departure scans and truck, mine is reading Billing Info Received as well.

  • David, Managing Editor

    Now I know you all are going to send me unboxing pictures right??? Maybe someone wants to shoot a quick video of the phone and menu structure/os?! Would someone be kind enough to do that?!

    • Robert

      GPS test would be great.

    • Herinel

      like i wrote in my post i got a 1080p sony handycam waiting to make an unboxing video if i get it early, and Tmonew will be the first to get it!

  • Jay

    I would definitely do that for you David, but im sure someone else would receive the phone before me and would do the same lol

  • Adrienne

    Yay!! Just checked and mine is shipped with a scheduled delivery of tomorrow the 29th……means I should have it before noon!!

  • thaghost

    no one seems to be upset that verizon is getting the g2(htc lexicon) as well. same thing dat happened with the vibrant. smh.

    • Frigadroid

      Why? the more people that have it the better it should be supported.

    • Jason

      Am I upset because vzw is getting a similar hardware device with htc sense and Bing search? No, not really.

  • Original G1er

    I ordered the G2 on the first day, over the phone through costumer service. I also got a text saying the order is being processed and will be delivered in 7 days and i’ll get another text with a shipping number when it ships…

    Still nothing. No email, no shipping number. I can’t track it’s status on tmobile either because I don’t know my order number.. Or can’t find it…

    Hmmm… Some confirmation would be nice and reassuring.. Guess I might have to go through costumer service again to see what’s up..

    • Fishstick

      I also ordered mine over the phone first day through customer service. The phone did not show up for me online. I am extending my contract since we have a good price as we have been with T-Mobile forever. I received the same text you did and even though I never received a text saying it shipped, I was able to track at using my phone number with no dashes. You just have to make sure to track by reference and not using a tracking number. Mine will show up today if UPS is to be believed. I am in Cincinnati, OH.

  • Sourkraut

    No shipping info for me yet. Order was put in on Saturday though.

  • twandizzel

    The website JUST updated! Mine will be here on the 30th! Score!

    • Mine left Kentucky an hour ago and has a scheduled delivery date of 9/29!! I pre-ordered 09/23/2010 at 22:06:53 according to my receipt email (it was 12:06am CT)…

  • jsilcott

  • LJ

    Just checked and I’ll be getting mine on Thursday!!!


    Mine is still not showing, i did not order until the early morning the day it was released. I did mine over the phone with customer care.

  • Original G1er

    I ordered the G2 on the first day, over the phone through costumer service. I also got a text saying the order is being processed and will be delivered in 7 days and i’ll get another text with a shipping number when it ships…

    Still nothing. No email, no shipping number. I can’t track it’s status on tmobile either because I don’t know my order number.. Or can’t find it…

    Someone halp! Where do you find your order number, when you go to your order status in tmobiles support page?

    • PittsburghG1

      Go to your confirmation email you got from T-Mobile. Its in there…

    high five from me to everyone else getting this sweet phone :D

    • heydrew

      Same here: DO NOT use the “-” when entering your number and it works! Mine arrives tomorrow (I’m just outside of Washington, DC).

  • Matlock

    stupid employee pre-order doesnt give us expedited shipping options, so im stuck having to wait til Monday October 4th, for my phone to be delivered!!! I would have def payed for expedited. Still waiting on confirmation for my GFs G2, since I ordered it a day later than I ordered mine. Still so excited!!

  • impatient

    I preordered at 1AM when it first came out… I’m all the way in Maine and my shipping updated with est del of 10/5!!! Boooooo

  • lunchbox308

    Tracking number just popped up on
    delivery confirmed for oct. 1st seattle area

  • Vinchenzo

    Mine will be here tomorrow also! Guess who is skipping work? LOL!!!!

    • Felix

      I am so happy that my first class tomorrow is at 2

  • Ray

    Ive been trying over and over since day one to pre-order and could not find the phone after clicking pre-order now on the G2 website. I called customer service they couldn’t help me I’m very frustrated that I couldn’t get this done through the mail and that T.M couldn’t help hopefully my local store will have enough in store.

  • Just checked my status, will be here on the 30th

  • Original G1er

    Billing information received.

    Shipped/billed on 9/28/10.

    No delivery date though.

    I wonder if will be put on a truck by tomorrow… Hopefully I’ll get it by this weekend. I’m in Chicago..

    I had to go through all this back when G1 launched/shipped to me…. I checked UPS like every 30 minutes.. Kentucky, Louisville, etc

    • CptnA-droid

      If your in Chicago it will be here Friday. I know this because mine will be Friday. :-) :-)

  • SugaChini

    Mine should be here tomorrow per UPS! AAAH so excited!

  • Herinel

    Hey i just checked mine as well tried for 5 min the same thing and it just updated, they have billing info which means they probably just haven’t scanned it yet, or the system hasn’t update, here’s to hoping i get it tomorrow.

    P.S. If i do i’ll have a 1080p video of the unboxing made especially for Tmonews, you guys will get it first. :)

  • infexious

    The best part of all this in my other posts of the g2 news is that I called it and said you guys will be getting it on the 29th… best buy mobile store I preordered along time b 4 tmobiles presale will have their shipment on the 29th and it was only 150 bux!! Todays gonna b a good day.

  • Original G1er

    Looking back at the nexus in those pics… It’s a really nice looking phone.

    G2 is newer and better of course, but damn that nexus looks smooth all roundy…. I don’t like rounded corner looking phones normally, at all, but the nexus got it right.

    Both are my favorite looking phones, along with the iPhone 4.

  • Original G1er

    Also like on the nexus, how the ear piece is kinda camouflaged in the metal bezel on top… And the trackball is the actual notification light..

    But G2 switched to the cleaner/better optical trackpad.. So the LED notification had to be placed in the ear piece… That’s why the ear piece grill is bigger/more noticeable..

    Which is cool. No complaints. Makes sense.

  • MOTB

    Just checked UPS site. I’m in Memphis, Tn. It said the last scan was in Nashville this morning. On time delivery for tomorrow. SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!

  • aedv

    Mine doesn’t show when it is scheduled to be delivered but does show that it shipped today and that it shipped 3 day select, whereas I paid for ground.

  • somebody

    the nexus looks muuuch nicer

  • Jessica

    Oh maaan. I wish I could track my G2. But I’m getting mine shipped via USPS, not UPS, therefore, I actually need a tracking number to track it. =(

  • joel

    Unboxing pics and videos are gonna start rolling in tomorrow :)

  • KasabianCollings

    I really hope that T-Mobile retail will start selling G2 accessories tomorrow. Need to grab the screen protector.

  • Jason

    Interesting. I ordered mine ground but the UPS tracking says 3 DAY SELECT. Well, not complaining at all if cust service decided to upgrade that.

    Tracking Number:

  • mdiggty

    ok my info just came through and it says rescheduled delivery date is 10/5. Has anybody else seen that.

    • jurey

      nope mine still says the 30th

    • tmogeek

      Mine has said 10/6. Sucks cuz I wasn’t offered any shipping options when I ordered it online 9/23.

  • memphis10

    supposedly mine will be here today. i cant wait, im feeling giddy

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Nice to see all the soon-to-be-happy owners of the G2. It looks to be a good device. Tmo is coming up on some really nice devices soon. Hope everyone that ordered one is pleased with their purchase.

    I’m looking moreso at the Nokia e7. Phonedog has videos on youtube and it has a 4inch Amoled screen with Symbian^3 OS (even though I really want to try out Meego on a 4.3inch Amoled screen) and it’s got Tmo 3G bands and most likely HSPA+ Capable.

    It’s also the first phone I know of that has Dual Led for the FFC as well as Dual Led’s for the 8mp backside Camera so now you can get visible video when the Ffc is used at night or in low light areas. Sweet. They could’ve picked a better processor though, I think the processor is clocked at 680mhz. Other than that, it looks great.

    Here’s the Phonedog e7 and n8 link:

    Here’s the Spec Sheet of the e7 from Gsmarena:

  • jazzmanmonty

    i’m still waiting for hands on at the store. what irritates me which i never thought about until now from this post and comparison, is that though the g2 is newer technology featuring a better processor and has a keyboard and, its still a 5mp camera, same screen size, and oh ya the little hspa+ thing that i cant even get in the chicago area for at least 4-6 months. Yet the nexus offers an amoled screen which i feel is better than the g2s, both offer vanilla droid 2.2, and yet though the nexus 1 has a bit less internal memory, its got the same expansion.
    wow! i cant believe it took this long to realize it that there’s not much more to the g2 than the nexus, and i was just about to waste an upgrade on it. if anyone with a nexus one wants to sell for $100, lemme know and we gotta deal!

    • Yellowfrizbee

      Lol, if you can find a Nexus One for $100, youre probably dreaming. Or its broken.

    • mikeyo

      Oh and its Vanilla ANDROID 2.2 (Froyo). Not F%$#ing droid

    • dubz

      and don’t forget some of the nexuses do not have amoled screens. i had one with an lcd.

  • AM123

    Ordered mine with express shipping last friday but still nothing on the UPS site :(

  • Foxeh

    Wow, the Nexus One and the G2 are like… sister and brother. It’s actually really cute.

    Nexus is all svelt and smooth while the G2 is buff and angular. Ooh…

    • steven

      i like that the G2 is only slightly thicker than the N1 is. HTC covered all bases with this one!

  • Jazzzzzzy

    Any know if there is any kind of notification light on the phone?

  • Beedi

    Wow! Just checked UPS and mine says delivery today the 29th! Sweet!

  • 2FR35H

    Man that G2 looks pretty sexy no lie hmm maybe I will get this instead if the vibrant… no use getting an older phone for christmas.

  • Amanda

    I am also getting the rescheduled delivery for 10/5 when i look mine up. I’m in WA state.

  • El Guapo

    Why not just get the nexus one? G2 offers no improvements except bulky keyboard

    • Jason

      Buying off subsidy is not an option for everyone. As for improvements, Google “Adreno 205”

    • tmogeek

      Uh, because we are early adopters. Fence sitters never bought the N1, early adopters did. Fence sitters won’t buy the G2, they’ll just whine about how the N1 they never bought is better. My G2 should be here next week and the N1 goes up for sale so I can buy the Tab!

    • MIkeyo

      @El Guapo apparently you have no idea what your talkin about. read before you post

  • Im sooo pissed i didnt pre order mine now…AARRRGGGG

    • gMoney

      Don’t you still have until the 4th to pre order?

  • I got my tracking number by phone number as well, however I did not put in the “-“

  • mikeeeee

    just a little heads up for you lucky ones.

    they were flown in from taiwan instead of boated into the country as louisville is UPS’s huge air hub.

    that means prolly that they were boxed just in time to ship.

  • Robert

    Mine still has a delivery day of 10/1 so excited!!!!!!

  • gMoney

    On deck for tomorrow! In Maryland.

  • PittsburghG1

    I also tracked by reference by putting my phone number in with no “-“s

    Delivery date tomorrow (30th)

    woo hoo

  • gMoney

    Hmmm…my order status says backorder, but the ups tracking says scheduled delivery tomorrow….who to trust?

  • Cr

    Woot! out for delivery to be delivered today from Addison IL! Yay!

  • Want2CBetter

    Just checked mine with no “-” and there it was (weird – they always have used the reference # with “-” in the past). So…. tomorrow I will have my new phone!


    I ordered mine on Friday(9/24), checked the status and says will be arriving 9/30! Great turn around t-mobile. I hope it was because I use to be a t-mobile rep!

    • Mr MN

      Can you guys please make a video review when you get it and post it on youtube? I couldn’t decide because I like the myTouch HD also.

      Is that a real UPS truck? :-)

      • David, Managing Editor

        I certainly hope to be able to have a lot of people sending in different pictures and video between today and tomorrow!

    • JM77

      I was a little jealous with all the people about to get their phones…
      BUT I checked UPS even though I have NOT received a text or email from tmo about delivery!… AND it is on schedule for tomorrow!

      I recommend that all who preordered go to and use your 10 digit phone number with NO dashes.

      You just might get a surprise!!! Good luck!

      • Shawn

        Hey thanks!!! I have been trying WITH the dashes this whole time and thought my phone was being left behind! lol.. Tried without the dashes and had a good surprise! Phone will be here tomorrow!!

  • Mike D.

    Mine just updated this morning to “backorder” but I still never received an actual tracking number. I ordered the first day.

    • chotpy

      Go to The reference number (under track by reference) is your phone number. You should find your tracking number.

      More info on “backorder”:

      Q: Why does Customer Care say my order is on ‘back order’?
      A: All pre-sale orders will show as backordered until the shipping date. You will receive an e-mail confirmation once your device has shipped that will include a link to the UPS Web site where you can track delivery.

      • Mike D.

        Got it. Shipped/Billed on 28th

        Status: Billing Information Received

        I’ll check a bit later and see if anything changes.


  • David, Managing Editor

    Don’t forget to send in pictures and video for your unboxing today!!!

  • Karl

    I don’t mean to be a big bummer here but I wonder if they are just getting sent to local UPS distribution centers.
    Mine states:
    Status: In Transit – Rescheduled
    Rescheduled Delivery Date:09/30/2010
    Shipped To: CHESTERTON, IN, US
    Shipped/Billed On:09/28/2010
    So I don’t know if “In Transit – Rescheduled” means T-mo sent them out on hold and then decided F it lets deliver them, or if that Rescheduled means it’s going to sit at UPS until it gets released.

    • David, Managing Editor

      One person said theirs was out for delivery so who knows what’s really going to happen!

      • EM

        Mine shows out for delivery

        Location Date Local Time Description What’s This?

  • pimpstrong

    Good to see everybody excited again here in TMO land. I would have been all over this bad boy coming from the Touch Pro 2 but the Vibrant and its big and perfect screen came out long before.

    • timmyjoe42

      This reminds me of the G1 launch.

  • Bayne

    Mine will ne here tomorrow here in Northern VA!!! BOOYA

  • Henry

    I think the same thing happened when I ordered my BlackBerry 8900 last year. All these people paid extra for the express shipping and we all got our Blackberrys around the same time. I paid for regular shipping and UPS says mine should be here today. Last night, it only had the Louisville KY information, but this morning it shows OHIO and other info. I live in the DC area, so not too far away. I’m pretty excited!

  • Chad

  • chotpy

    Billing information YAY

  • Deaconclgi

    I am excited for you all and I didn’t even order a G2!!!! Nothing like hearing a knock at the door and seeing the UPS person high tailing it back to the truck before you can say thanks. I think I let out a lion like roar when I opened my last tech gadget deliver…..I was sooooooooooo excited!

    Enjoy you new device!

  • Keith

    I ordered mine on Sunday-26th via the call center. I just checked UPS for tracking info and it says the G2 will be delivered today!! Good luck everyone!

  • Lui

    • David, Managing Editor


  • Trae713

    So I should just keep checking today on UPS since I pre ordered last friday morning? because Im not getting any shipment details or emails. I ordered in store and recieved a printout.

  • Alex

    Mine was shipped on the 28th and right now it’s 20 miles away hough I have to wait until tomorrow to receive it for some odd reason. Man, i wish i could just drive the 20 miles and pick it up.

  • aliendave

    Crap. My tracking only indicates Billing Information Received and now my order status on the T-Mo site says “Backorder.”

  • ty

    Mine will arrive 10/5 ahhhh can’t wait that long!!

  • Felix

    latest update says mine has left the local facility and is out for delivery!!!!

    • Felix

      even better, I called customer service to add internet to my plan and the rep gave me one month for free. I love t-mobile!

  • aedv

    My order status says “backordered” too which is complete BS because my buddy preordered 2 days after I did and his is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. I am fuming mad.

    • Bayne

      Dude its ok mine on the tmobile site says the same thing. but when i went to ups and did the phone number thing it says it will be delivered by the 30th!!!!

  • draws

    mines says rescheduled, will be here the 30th yessssss…

  • La_resistance28

    This is the most excited I’ve ever been for a phone delivery that’s not even coming to me, haha! Just seeing the excitement of everyone on here is so infectious! Can’t wait to see the first unboxing pix and videos! Yay for the G2! Go T-Mo!

  • crzy

  • val

    for all those with delivery dates for this week, did you select expedited shipping?

    • gMoney

      nope, I did regular shipping…should be here (maryland) tomorrow.

      • val


    • JM77

      Ordered on Saturday. Regular shipping. Never received a text or email about it.
      But its scheduled for delivery tomorrow.

      Use your 10 digit phone number no dashes. It is your reference number NOT your tracking number.

      Good Luck!

  • Herinel

    tmobile’s site says it will be delivered by the 6th?! NO WAY i hope its a mistake because ups site doesn’t even have a delivery time yet………..

  • Evan

    I cant wait to see how this phone is with the public, and cant wait to get my hands on it for Christmas. I just couldn’t ever pre order a phone again with what happened to the Mytouch.

    Your T-Mobile G2 will be delivered to your shipping address on October 6, 2010

    I ordered Friday at 5AM. Standard UPS delivery.

    It took about an hour to get the online order through. First, it wouldn’t even show the G2 for me since I had a Vibrant for 2 weeks and returned it. I used my Daughter’s number and paid full price. My contract is up October 15, and I plan to switch to the even more plus plan.

  • dwillistyle

    Tomorrow!!!!!!! 9/30 delivery date. In transit and on time!!

    I wasn’t expecting it this early since I did not pay for expedited shipping. You certainly wont hear me complain. I haven’t been this exited for a phone since…well, ever.

  • val

    i finally gave up obsessively checking the ups website for details and just called tmo cs. i kept putting in my phone number and they had nothing on it. cs gave me an actual tracking number (completely different from my phone number) and my scheduled delivery date is tomorrow, 09/30! how exciting!!

    • AM123

      I ordered mine last friday the 24th with express shipping and UPS is still not providing me any info (through my phone reference #). I’m starting to think that T-mobile is purposely holding back express shipping orders. CS was of no help either. All they said is that I should receive it between the 4th and 6th. :(

  • I was tempted to pre-order this but am holding off until I hear from Cyanogen that it’s “hacker friendly” (easily rootable and rommable) unlike the Droid X or MyTouch 3g Slide.

  • volcanic515

    Mines says Oct 01 is the delivery date!!! YAY!!

  • Frankfurter

    I ordered mine on the afternoon of the 24th. The UPS website says the shipping info has been submitted to UPS, but no other info. It also says “back ordered” on the T-Mo status site. Will wait to see. I’m in Las Vegas. Anyone from Vegas have a confirmed delivery time yet? Anyway, good luck to all of you getting yours today. I will keep checking these boards today for your pics/impressions!

    • UPSSucks

      Yeah mine was confirmed for friday 10/1 until i had to call tmo and have UPS add an APARTMENT NUMBER! and now UPS says it wont get here until monday 10/4. im also in LV. UPS Sucks!!!!!!!

  • joel

    Mine is also out for delivery :D

    Man UPS can’t get here fast enough T_T

  • gowaderacer

    why is that person wearing crocs with black slacks??

  • G1AndroidFan

    I just checked the T-Mobile site and mine is showing Completed but no Tracking number yet

    • fuzzy

      go to –> tracking –> track by reference –> put your cell phone number in the reference field


    I should have pre ordered I’m pissed. now I gotta wait til Wednesday and hope t mobile stores don’t sale out before I get off work.

  • Luis

    Ahhhhh!!! Pre-Ordered with express shipping on the 24th am. Went from showing me shipping in three business days on Saturday to shipped in one business day when I call the automated system on Monday.

    NOWWWW it is showing me BACKORDER when I call the automated system. Called TMobile and they are saying it is showing back ordered also and not to expect it until the 6th :(.

    Sucks to be me…

    • Want2CBetter

      go to and check under track by reference number using your 10 digit phone number with no dashes in it. Tmobile still say mine hasn’t shipped but it has as I can verify @ This is the only way you can find out at this time.

      • Luis

        Did this since I placed the order…It doesn’t come up at all…sniff, sniff…missing out on all the fun…sigh

  • OMG

    I ordered mine yesterday around 10 in the morning. I went to and I put in my phone number without dashes or anything and it says it doesnt have information for my phone at all!!! Is there something wrong, or t-Mobile just hasn’t processed the information? HELP :(


    for those of you getting it today or tomorrow, what day did you order and approx what time? i ordered mine the day it was released by 9am pst and mine is still showing no tracking info on ups site or through a cc rep.

    • Want2CBetter

      I ordered @ 130am on the website – as soon as it was available. If you haven’t already, try the track by reference @ WITHOUT the dashes in the phone number. In the past you’ve had to put the dashes in but for many (if not all) of us – this time there are no dashes in the 10 digit phone number.

    • Eric

      I ordered mine on Sunday afternoon (9/26)…UPS says 9/30 delivery. TMO said to include dashes for the ref. number, but mine comes up without the dashes in the phone number.

  • Cam

    Does anyone know if you are required to sign for the package or will they leave it by the door?

  • G2R6

    I did not get any text or email confirmation about the shipment. Checked UPS with my reference number and it got shipped and will be @ my door this Friday Oct. 1.

    Bad thing is, I tried to cancel my order 5 minutes after placing the order online when T-Mo rep admittedly they were having problems with the Online order for the EIP option. I tried to order on last Friday (Sept. 24) using the EIP option but it wasn’t working and not letting me proceed with the SUBMIT. After 4 reps and 1 loyal customer rep. They still processed the order eventhough the 1st 2 reps I spoke with reassured me that it will be cancelled. Got a different story with the next 2, and a 50/50 chance with the Loyal Customer rep.

    So Tmo got me to pay the phone in full and not the EIP option I wanted.
    But, I’m still getting the phone on Oct. 1. I am considering returning it as they adviced, and I can reorder it using the EIP option through customer support and not online.

    A little frustrating.

  • Usually they are very strict with phone deliveries. So I would bet for a signature requirement.

    • Shawn

      You would like to think that but it doesn’t happen. I had a replacement phone sent out, and went to go leave one day and when I opened my front door, the phone was sitting in the hallway on the floor. (I live in an apartment) It was basically up for grabs!

    • G1 user waiting on G2

      Yeah when i ordered the G1 all the delivery driver did was knock and left the package at the door, when i ordered the Vibrant (before returning it) i was not home and they just left it in my car port, i hope im home when they delive my G2.


        Intrestingly, when I ordered my hd2 I signed the pad before they handed me my package.

    • Lee

      I received my G2 yesterday after receiving the text that it was on it’s way. UPS did ring my door bell, but left it in front of the front door. So, if no one was home, then it was up for grabs.

  • G1 user waiting on G2

    So i finally ordered mine just a few minutes ago through customer loyalty, i dont think i have checked my phone so much for a text about the shipping.

    • oh no tmo

      did you get the phone for $150 + $20 Android Data?
      I did… but I forgot to ask about the order #! Doh!!

  • Madison

    WOOOT Got my tracking number. Come out of Colorado. ETA Oct 4th.

  • James Gamble

    Mine shows as in transit with a delivery date of 9/30. I ordered mine via a T-Mobile corporate store and it looks like Express shipping was added for free. We’ll see tomorrow I guess. :)

  • They don’t send signature required…I had two Vibrants sitting under my door mat at my apartment on Monday afternoon. :)

    I believe I’m going back for a G2!

  • patrick

    yeah, i have yet to order mine but i am dying to. i fussed enough and finally got through customer loyalty and got the price down to 149.99 with no mail in rebate but the taxes are still going to be 45, and i am hoping to get the upgrade fee waived. we have been with tmobile for 7 years now and its finally great to see an awesome phone. i guess this gives me time to see some reviews before i buy!

  • JayJay

    WOOOOOHOOOOO!!! I’ll have mine by Oct. 1st!!!! No sig required by the way.

    • AB

      Really? Not sure how I feel about that. I live somewhere where I could totally see it getting snatched off the porch. They’ll probably require a signature from me and re-deliver it on Saturday when I can sign for it.

  • mexicangio

    wooop wooop october 1st so stoked

  • cris

    Mine will be here frday wooo hooo newjersey

    • smartphoneguy

      new jersey here too

  • The Hammer

    Mine will be delivered on the 30th.

    But i just go my hands on one for a few sec at the local tmo store. Must say it feels awesome the Hinge mech is so buttery smooth. oooooooooo cant wait to get mine tomorrow

  • praguewatermelon

    YAY! Mine will arrive this Friday, according to UPS.

  • EricM

    Mine is in transit and ups tracking says my G2 will arrive on Oct 4, but I’m pissed at myself for choosing ground delivery!!! Want now!

  • AB

    Mine says it’s on track for delivery on Friday! But since I won’t be home to sign for it on Friday, I’ll probably get it on Saturday.

    My husband is sulking. I ordered the Vibrant for him the same day I pre-ordered my G2, and even though my phone isn’t officially out yet, I’m getting mine first!

  • javier

    Mine is in transit and will arrive on October 5th.

  • Mat

    I ordered min on the launch night and it’s set for 9/30/10 delivery. Wooo!!!

    • Rick


      • Kickstar13

        You can track via Reference Number which should be your mobile number (without the dashes).

  • shbbykng

    According to UPS I will have mine 9/30. Sent to a corporation so I will have it first thing in the AM. Good to say I will be busy all day with my new devise.

  • Jason

    I ordered mine on the 25th at the Tmobile store. They said they will give me a call when they get the shipment of the phone. Do you think the store will hand them out before the 6th??

  • coolMANDINGO

    its a little heavier(obviously because of the keyboard)than the nexus one and the G!. I will pass because the tethering is missing. No video or tv out.Meh its an ok device. not for me. enjoy for those ones that get it!!

    • LookingForward

      Just download pdanet from the market. You don’t even need to root. I wish it had video out, but will buy a dnla to TV adapter as soon as one is available.

  • logic660

    do we know if this has swype pre-installed?

    • Vince

      swype is preinstalled. Qwerty is really nice.

    • The Hammer

      Yes from the print out i seen today at the tmo store swype will be preinstalled

    • G2R6

      yes it does have swype pre-installed

  • Carlos

    anyone got there G2 yet? :)

  • G2R6

    Scheduled for Friday (Oct. 1) delivery as well.
    Placed order online last Friday (Sept. 24th)

    • MIkeyo

      Exact same boat im in. mine is coming to houston

  • Vince

    Just got mine. So far it is amazing.

  • Devin

    Wow… have it now… and its awesome.

  • Want2CBetter

    hmmm…. no offense, but when I get mine I will be too busy with it to even think about posting here. :)

    • Carlos

      thats what i was thinking as well…but it would for sure be on twitter & facebook lol…sense i use those heavily from my phone

  • jmugirl

    so when i preordered (9/27), my mom upgraded her phone to the g2 as well and our phones are being sent to two seperate addresses. I checked and my number did not find anything, but my mom’s on the other hand notes a 9/30 delivery date..i wonder why mine isnt up yet =(

  • Stevo J.

    Yesterday I checked my order status on and it said my G2 wouldn’t be shipped until Oct. 6. I checked UPS and there was no record of my phone. I got a knock at the door today and who might it be…the UPS delivery guy with my brand spankin’ new G2!!! Surprise Surprise!

  • LookingForward

    I went to the T-mobile store. They had one that I was able to demo. It is a bit heavier than the G1, but shorter and thinner. About the same width. Feels very solid. The one thing that I found out that I have not heard elsewhere is that you have to remove the battery to access the SD card. Not a big deal, but I would rather it was accessible like the G1.

    • The Hammer

      Not to be a smart A## but
      Do you people change out sd card alot??? I mean i get one and stick with it until i get a bigger one or it just craps out on me. Isnt it easier just to plug in the USB cable and transfer stuff that way?

      • LookingForward

        Actually, my Daughter and I both have G1s, and we would occassionally swap sd cards to listen to each others music. She started having issues where her phone would say that there was no SD card inserted. So it may be a good thing that it is harder to get to it on the G2.

  • Amanda

    for all of you that have yours, send the videos and pictures to David so we can all see! :)

  • aliendave

    Does anyone who has their G2 live in an HSPA+ city? I’d like to know what kind of speeds I can expect when I finally get mine…

    • notxel21

      +1 I would like to know this as well. I will be sure to post DL/UL speeds when I get my G2 tomorrow!

  • Alicia

    Mine will be arriving on 10/1!! I’m San Francisco, CA.

  • Joseph

    Have you had to sign for your phones?

  • Nozman

    Finally I got my teacking number I will receive my G2 on oct 1 that’s five days before launch!!

  • Trevor

    How long did it take for you guys to get your shipping text message? I just ordered one this morning :P

  • Joseph

    i got mine at 4:44 ordered it the 24th

  • Gamer

    Came home to a gift from ups. loving my new G2!!!!!


    i ordered mines tue night, received the order confirmation txt yesterday, received the shipping text today….scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

  • g1tmobile129

    has anyone who got express shipping received the phone yet?! i got express shipping and its not here yet :( it seems only people who got ground shipping are receiving the phone. im so impatient. and i cannnot call to complain because the phone is “supposed” to arrive and launch on the 6th

    • AM123

      @g1tmobile: I also got expres shipping last friday the 24th and it has yet to ship. It seems we got screwed royally!! Can’t even cancel the order because they say its too far in already. Sucks!!! I suspect they will ship it on tuesday for us. Weekend is gonna be tough!

      • DaBoiBanks

        I also got express shipping on monday and it hasn’t shipped yet… :-(

  • Got Mine Today and it is AWESOME!

    Wish they did not remove the portable wi-fi hotspot / Tethering option but I guess I will continue to use PDA NET for tethering. I am getting close to T1 speeds tethered.

    NICE!! No more need to pay for Internet access at home!!!

  • steven

    the tracking for mine hasnt been updated since yesterday which made me think my package might show up early. i saw two UPS trucks near my area when i left the house today, but came back to nothing. i’m sure it’ll be here tomorrow, but the lack of tracking updates has me a little worried :/

  • GeneralSanity

    I feel like a chump. I pre-ordered at Best Buy and they have no idea when they will get the phone. What good is a pre-order if they don’t have the phones at launch. For the privilege of doing business with Best Buy, I get to drool as everyone else get’s their phone. I am an existing T-Mobile customer and I tried to place a pre-order, but they will not accept pre-orders for add-a-line, only for upgrades, and none of our lines are eligible for upgrade. Curse you T-Mobile! Stop teasing me and messing with my mind.
