    So apperantly the G2X isn't available from T-Mobile right now. People are starting to question it on t-mobiles twitter now.
    All they've said on their twitter is: "We had to change it due to inventory issues. Sorry!"

    Does anybody know what's going on here? Is it something temporary or have they taken it away for good??
    I hope not, because then I would be very, very upset :mad: I finally found the perfect phone and this was the only one I've considered buying.

    That is interesting since I just bought it directly from a TMO store yesterday afternoon. It hasn't been listed in the inventory on their website for a few days, but it was still there if you clicked on older links directly to the phone.

    Yes but above the price it says: temporarily out of stock. I wasn't planning on buying one until this summer but I was afraid of that they might stop selling it, but I guess it's just temporary.

    It's out of stock at tmob's site. A rep told me, "no inventory." It's common and happens all the time. When I got mine from Amazon a few weeks ago, it was out of stock momentarily.

    I think that this may be the case. There is something that they are not saying. There better be a replacement for early adaptors. This will be that last time I buy a phone on release.

    I had two lock-ups this weekend. Couldn't hang up from a call. Flashlight went on and wouldn't shut off. Kind of bizarre. I made a few calls and inquired about exchanging it on my 14 day guarantee which ended today. After a reboot, things seemed fine.
    I was actually loath to exchange it, not wanting to get a bad one. I've had no issues before this at all. I love the phone and it's been awesome. So I decided to keep it.
    Then I saw the posts about it being gone from T mobiles site. This made me very nervous. If they are going to put the phone on hold or at worst discontinue it, I wanted to replace it now.
    My point is, if T mobile hadn't have done that, I would not have exchanged it. If it is as they say and it is on backorder, why does it not just say that like at least one other phone on their site? Makes ME nervous.

    It is obviously there are quality issue with the phone. If its just plain not enough inventory, it will still be listed on the web site saying out of stock.

    I have my second G2x. I still have random reboot. Battery life is very inconsistance. I'm getting HTC sensation.

    I still have my first g2x I love this phone. It has had some lockups but all and all I would give this phone a 9.5 out of 10. I would expect it to reboot and freeze up a little hell my computer does that still. I really hope this doesnt mean that we are not going to get our gingerbread update. I was not going to root my phone but if I have to I will just to get the gingerbread leak that is out there.

    If you look at the list of complaints it's actually long. I had 2 reboots, one complete shutdown, GPS issues and 4g issue. If the return rate is actually that high TMo has to do something. If they are covering it up then it will end bad for them.

    I see them quietly handling the issue by sending the phones back for new ones. In turn ignoring the phones that are already sold. You can't replace all the phones you sold when your press is saying its a supply issue.

    Some believe its because of widespread issues with light-leakage (aka unintended illumination :p) and random reboots. TMO says its a stocking issue. Any G2X owners have comments? Anyone else??

    Some of the things I've experienced:

    Random reboots? Check. (Only once on my replacement though)
    Shut downs? Check. (Never on my replacement)
    Faulty GPS? Big Check.
    Data issues? Check. (But I think this is a T-Mobile problem, more than anything)

    And last night, after 7 hours of charging, it stopped charging. This morning when I took it off the charger, I was almost down to 50% within the first second!

    This is as close as you'll get with a stock android phone, I've never owned a custom UI phone and have no plans to. So I guess I'm stuck with it until at least the next Nexus. I really hope they fix everything so I don't have to jump ship.

    The irregular battery usage is driving me crazy. Charged the phone fully before I went to bed. Someday I woke up with 25% left. someday I woke up still has 90% left. I had Tmo G1, Nexus 1, MyTouch4g and this phone. Only happen with this phone.

    I feel very bad for those with problems. I haven't had the problems reported. In fact, the phone has exceeding my expectations in stability.

    All this news has got me thinking about a hypothetical. What if TMo offered some sort of amnesty deal, where they allowed you to swap your G2x for another phone due to the problems people are having. I once coveted the Sensation, but honestly I think I would keep my G2x. There isn't another Tmo phone (including the Sensation) that I would want more right now. But I must be one of the lucky few.

    If the Bootloader on the Sensation is unlocked I am going to be returning my g2x and paying the crazy restocking fee is required...

    My lady hasn't had any problems with her phone at all. I had issues with my 1st G2x, I've had a brand new replacement over a week now with no issues & get a consistent 8 hours per charge.

    Why not use a real browser and use something like FireFox or Chrome? I have no issues viewing the website.
