come on guys. you got to laugh. its unfortunate we are all out some good buckage. But really could you ever imagine this happening. say an episode of 2 1/2 men was all about this experience with the g2x ,tmobile and lG wed all be rolling on the floor. this is amzaing i just cant do anything but laugh at it anymore.
cant believe tims post today. love the part about better front facing camera with qik... they kinda left out the rest of the camera features are much worse and so is the front facing camera with the camera app.
i like the 8 dollars a month(oh the one that was raised from 5.99 to 7.99 without much notice or permission) since they refuse to actually support this phone i already have 1 year support from lg without paying 8 bucks a month. I was told what was good about this was i could just go to a tmobile store to change out if i had a problem rathre than have to mail it out to LG. well a lie i mean another lie.
I am glad i dont work for tmobile because i would have to quit. no way i could stand myself working for anyone thats mission was to lie and con people out of their hard earned money. reason im not a salesman.
they cut off ota while they are aware refurbished phoens along with many non did not get it. and taht the lg tool does not allow refurbs to get the update either. so ok we know we messed you over by selling you a bad phone than giving you a refurbished in place of the brand new phone we sold that was defective. so we know youll understand when we dont update it either.
this is just all too hilirious how did this company stay in business this long.
i see how losing 50,000 customers was actually a good thing
I was hoping for an interesting time developing for this fast phone. but i have to say i have gotten my monies worht out of intertainment from these 2 companies.
Ive never seen or realized that companies could actually put out a product being run as these 2 seem to.
I know that whoever does all the phone stuff is not the same as who does the network since i have actaully been very happy with teh network itself.(dont like throtteling to snail pace but it was told before i paid my money so cant really complain about that)
i just keep laughing as i type this its just so unbelievable.
My G2X is not updated. The instructions you link to take me through a process that tells me I'm already up to date. I'm still running 2.2. What gives?

Okay, I've had enough. I like to follow the rules and play nice with OTA updates. However, since T-Mobile and LG gave me (and all of us) the finger, I took matters into my own hands. A little Googling lead me here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1183168 where the steps are laid out for how to do this yourself. If you are clueless, you'll probably mess it up. For me, it took about ten minutes once I found the procedure. I'm now running a functioning 2.3 on my G2X.
T-Mobile, I will never buy another non-Google released Android phone again. I never had issues like this with the G1 or the N1 or the NS. It's ridiculous I had to take these steps just to update a phone to a version of Android that was available before the phone was ever released. Thanks for making life nice and difficult. I'm going to go console myself selecting text in webpages.
Hello again. I'm very sorry for those of you experiencing difficulty and I hope I can clarify some of the questions still popping up. At this point the OTA roll out is complete. If, for any reason, you didn't recieve or were unable to complete installation of the OTA release you will want to complete the update through the link provided in the article.
tim what should those with the DWP(refurbished) and those without windows compatible computers do?
Those questions and related concerns have been reported and I will be sure to let you know as soon as we have additional information to provide. I'm sorry again about the problems that some of you are still running into and appreciate everything that everyone in the community has been doing to provide helpful advice and alternative solutions.
And those of us with Mac computers who cannot update the phone via LG? T-Mobile is unbelievable. Doing a somewhat complete job (well - we updated some of your phones via the rollout) is just unbelievable. You're company should be ashamed of itself.
I have not been updated yet. My phone is working very well with 2.2.2, but I don't want to be left too far behind when many of the fixes are implemented (I have read about many of the GB troubles people continue to have). I have no obvious impetus to update yet, but I am concerned at some point, that apps could expect to be running on top of GB and start causing me troubles.
I don't feel that I need to update via LG now, since I am still happy with my phone's functioning.
Please feel free to advise on when it is critical to update, when symptoms are not evident.

normally i say gingerbread adds very little new. and there should be very little that you cant do with froyo that you can with gingerbread.
in regards to LG's version of gingerbread. it makes your camera less useful. and continues to offer little.
If your phone is working 100% without problems i would suggest you do not update.
Dont feel bad about being left behind there is really nothing great about gingerbread. over froyo.
I strongly believe there will be another update in october that may be better. this update was poor and the execution of releasing it just continues the laughable experience.
If your running good keep what you got.
the chances of GB causing problems for you are higher than not.
If you are stuck with this phone for 2 years keep running froyo and when icecream is releasd and custom roms come out go for that. you will never see icecream sandwhich released for this phone. but it should run great on it. and someone will port it within weeks after source is released.
dont count on any real updates from lg/tmobile other than to fix problems to appease the CAL. other than that they only care about selling more phones adn locking in more 2 years contracts.
Thanks eagle1967. You have addressed my issues fairly comprehensively. I appreciate another viewpoint.
I have been patiently waiting for the OTA for probably two weeks, checking sometimes as often as several times a day. Then I heard it was taken down for a few days to fix a problem. Then I saw this notice that OTA is over! What? It has not even started for me! I want my OTA, not any other method. Do we need another class-action lawsuit before someone will grant us what we have been expected since BEFORE we bought the cell phone? I was promised by the sales rep of the GB update. Please help!
You know, LG and T-Mo both will benefit from responding to customers. I know supporting customers cost $$$, and managers will tend to want to save $$$. But good will is far more important than a short-term financial issue. Because in the end the customers will figure out a way to get what they rightfully should have, and LG and T-Mo will then be the losers. Please think for the long-term.
Thanks for your attention.
T-Mobile needs to think about customer service before they put us through this kind of stuff. they are going to loose me as a customer. They need to take a good look at the way this update went out and how screwed up it is.
Do you guys really read these forums? We know there's an update tool on the lg forums. LISTEN!
You've skipped a ton of people with this OTA update, and I for one have a MAC. and the site clearly says "PC ONLY"
For those who have refurbished phones, I've not seen a single solution either.
I WILL NOT send my phone in to have it replaced, it is something I rely on every day, and i'm not going to go onto someone elses computer to update my phone. I want this update! figure it out!
Why do people insist on JUST updating via OTA? This is by far the most unreliable way to update simply because cell phones can lose signal during the process! Then the next complaint will be "my phone got bricked using the OTA update." The safest way to do this is via computer.

man your devotion to protecting tmobile is admirable. but on this one you are responding right under a mac user that cannot use the lg update tool.
