T-Mobile G2x price raised $50 in an effort to curtail shortages of the device
So how is T-Mobile going to rectify the imbalance? Well, it could add supply by building more units, but it would seem that the factory is already churning out as many units as it can. Instead, the carrier is taking a different tact, deciding instead to follow the Economics 101 text book and is slowing the demand for the phone by raising the price by $50. Starting last Friday, the price of the T-Mobile G2x after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a signed 2-year contract is $249.99. If that is too rich for your blood, Amazon is offering the phone to new T-Mobile customers for $79.99 with a signed contract, and $119.99 for existing T-Mobile customers willing to extend their contract for another 2 years. The online retailer has plenty of the T-Mobile G2x in stock.
