T-Mobile G2x back in stock online; priced temptingly at zero
At the time of its release, the T-Mobile G2x was undoubtedly among the hottest smartphones on the market and it was flying off the shelves faster than the carrier had expected that it would. The demand for it was so high that T-Mobile decided to bump the smartphone's price up by $50 in order to bring things back in equilibrium. Eventually, the hype settled as the carrier ran out of stock and G2x owners realized that their new and shiny superphone was plagued by more than a few bugs in its operating system.

However, the T-Mobile G2x is about to get a second life as it is once again for sale on the carrier's web page. What makes things even better is that the Gingerbread update for the G2x is already available so the flaws that were ruining the smartphone's reputation are very likely a thing of the past now. The smartphone can be yours for free, as long as you commit to a 2-year contract, yet you will have to act quickly as the deal will expire this Thursday, July 28.

In case you haven't met the T-Mobile G2x yet, it is the US version of the LG Optimus 2X, which is known for being the World's first smartphone to boast a dual-core processor. It is powered by a Tegra 2 chipset clocked at 1GHz and features some other goodies, such as a 4-inch WVGA display, 8-megapixel camera capable of shooting 1080p HD video and supports HSPA connectivity of up to 14.4 Mbps.

Has anyone else tried updating their G2X to gingerbread? I just want some feedback because I'm unsure about using the LG Forum's update, since I've been reading that that update has bricked people's phones.

Just ordered this phone since it was free. Going to give it a try now that GB is on it. Hopefully it will be shipped to me with GB already installed.

Well my roomate and i have the same phone he did the lg update and i went and did cyanogen mod 7. All i have to say is that i had 30% battery life after 13 1/2 hours of regurlar to moderate use and the phone is unstoppable. Its so fast i cant even describe it. When i was still on froyo and only rooted and and removed bloatware it got really fast but now this is something that i cant even describe, whatever you throw at it doesnt slow down its just lightning fast. I got 3300 on benchamark and its not even overclocked lol. I honestly feel as if i have the fastest phone out in the market now. get gingerbread if you dont feel comfortable modding your phone if you do i promise it will deff pay off and its really not that hard to do. btw no worries on bricking the phone if done properly because you can always go into recovery and put the thing stock in matter of minutes. enjoy :)
