    G2X Problems

    So I bought a G2X to try out. I was upgrading from a G2.
    The G2X is really fast at browsing and the screen works well. The problems I am having are it will not run "Speed Test" at home. I can have my G2 on wifi next to it and that phone performs flawlessly. The GTX says no network connection. The G2X will surf the web in the same test area so maybe its sometype of software issue.

    The 2nd more important problem is while it was on charge with wifi and 4G enabled,it shut off/rebooted a few times. I found this odd for a new phone,so I turned both of those features off. I woke up this morning to find that the phone will not turn on. It gave the charging symbol last night while plugged in. I'm going to plug it in to my car charge on the way to work to see if my home charger is a problem.

    I am putting the Sim card back into my G2 and will return this phone today to try another one. Maybe I got a Friday model?

    Thanks for any input.

    hmm it does seems like a software issue. If ya just got it, then I would do the same thing and take it back. Let them send it back and reflash the software for someone else and get a new one.

    I too have experienced problems turning on the phone. several times when plugged in to recharge the phone would just shut down on its own and not start up again. I would have to unplug the charger, remove the battery and replace it, then try to turn the phone on again. When the phone did come on it did not appear to have charged. Eventually I returned the handset for another one.
    No problems since getting the replacement but now my wife experienced a similar issue her phone was plugged in to recharge over night and would not turn on this morning. after repeating the battery out steps, she got it to turn on. However her battery was fully recharged. Is this likely to be a software or hardware issue?

    It's software and take it back to the store. Droid-xer is right.

    Front facing cam support isn't a normal part of Android 2.2... You might have to wait on an update for compatibility with Yahoo Messenger. When Gingerbread rolls around, it brings native front facing camera support.

    That is the reason why it's not working. The 2.2 for g2x doesn't support the front facing camera. At least for video chatting.

    I too am having problems with the phone shutting off on its own. I found a setting that doesn't allow the screen to go into standby while on the charger. So that helps as far as making sure my alarm will go off in the morning but does not help the random shutting off even if it is not on the charger.

    Going to get on the horn with T-Mobile tonight and see if they have a remedy. If not she is getting exchanged.

    I have to say though, I love how smart the auto text thing is. Almost like this thing can read my mind even though I am severely screwing most of these words up.

    The g2x had some problems and T-Mobile is aware of it.
