update your g2x manually on lg.com to version P999-V21y and the shut downs/overheating etc should all be fine after update. automatic updates Over the Air were limited time, you must update yourself now to fix those issues.

I was very excited about this phone when I first purchased it having been told that OS would be updated "in a few months". However, after three years and counting the OS never got moved up from GB and the phone started to act up by shutting itself down and sound becoming really annoying, speakers almost unusable...
I think the class action law-suite is in order. They should at least know if you don't deliver, you pay.

I got a letter in the mail not long ago saying I might be part of a class action lawsuit involving this phone. It said there were known issues with things like freezing, spontaneous rebooting, and other things that made the phone not worth the price. If I had COMPLAINED about this to T-Mobile prior to a certain date, I was eligible to receive something like $20 in compensation.

This phone has been junk since around my third day of owning it - do yourself and favor and pass it by.

Honestly, I was fine with this phone for a couple of days. Then it started to freeze up, got slow, etc. I now hate my phone. It is slow, turns off and on randomly out of now where. I have had my G2x for about 1 1/2 years im pretty sure. I do not recommend this phone. Look for either an Iphone or a droid razr m. I am getting one of those. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE. HONESTLY THEY NEED TO GET RID OF THEM. THEY SUCK.

Great phone - no dropped calls, excellent call quality.

Decent camera, better than most phones.

Quality all around - nice screen, good luck and feel, battery life is above average.

HDMI port! HSDPA data speeds on T-Mobile are quick. Durable. Fair selection of accessories available. Bluetooth and GPS work well.

*WARNING*: The G2x/P999 is *crippled* by T-Mobile/LG - no upgrades past Android 2.3.x Gingerbread - No 4.x/Ice Cream Sandwich/Jellybean!

There are still no fully-functional aftermarket or 3rd party ICS/JB updates available, and there are not likely to be any. There are some that seem to run very well but CAN NOT access the phone's radio properly, due to LG/T-Mobile's reluctance to release the necessary information. Thus aftermarket development for the G2x is virtually dead, and users are stuck with a very old base OS.

NOTE: GSM Arena specs are also incorrect - related models (Optimus 2x/P990) do have an FM radio, this one DOES NOT have FM radio functionality. It seems the chip may be there but it is intentionally disconnected and can not be used, even with aftermarket firmware.

i have not found another phone like the G2x. I could use the phone and watch movies by connecting it to the television and no other phone does this. I could expand the memory by using a micro SD card. I would have like to see a new version of this phone it is one of the best phones today even tough it came out in 2009. I still use my phone today.

When the G2x came out 4 years ago (2009) it was one of the fastest phones out there with its duel core processors and nice 8mg pix.camera. I've tried out 8 different phones since and the G2X still holds up as one of the best android phones built. Today you can get faster and bigger but the bang for the buck in the Tmobile G2x is uncomprable. One of the biggest downfalls is the sceen blackout during calls (safty issue with phones) and not comming back while phone is away from face. However I had great success with this phone with very little dropped calls. The other reviewer that complained of dropped calls with this phone must realize that 85% of dropped callls is a network issue and location, not the phone. G2x highly recommended.

The G2X is the worst phone I ever purchased. The drop calls and lack of internet is shocking. I have contacted T-Mobile twice and both times they gave me Band-Aid results. I have been a T-Mobile member for 6 years, after the problems with this phone and the lack of customer service on their part it is time to switch. Evidently, T-Mobile does not care about their customers.
