DO NOT BUY---SCREEN LEAK

So I just got off the phone with LG, heres what he had to say. LG knows that their is a screen leak problem and they are currently working on the problem. LG WILL NOT cover this issue under a manufacturers warranty because, it "does not effect the function of the phone" Really? I am on my second G2X and a friend is on his third and we are both having screen leak issues. I suggest that you install iDraw! to give yourself a black screen to see what I am talking about. If you are under your 14 days of purchase I suggest you return your phone and wait for the remanufacturing. LG makes the screens for Apple and this is one of the reasons why the iPhone was delayed; because Apple insisted that LG fix the problem BEFORE they would release the iPhon...

If you have to install a special app just to see and notice the problem, then how big of an issue can it be in day-to-day use?

I'm not saying the issue doesn't exist, I'm just saying it sounds like LG has a point. If you'd never notice it without l...

Rich there is conflicting information on specs

I know we talkes about it before but I just saw the specs on T-Mo's website and it indicates that has an 850 and 1900 HSPA radio.

Really weird. I hope it's true because that would be awesome if the deal should go through with AT&T
the lg g2x has at&t 3G bands as well as t-mobiles aws bands. its true and verified.
...
There's also several reviews that have said this phone is the first 42mbps hspa+ phone. Is that true or verified?
No, it definitely does not support those bands. We verified our specs with LG and T-Mobile and they confirmed to us that the T-Mobile web site had an error in its specs.

Re: Silent Mode

I have noticed that my phone is randomly putting itself into silent mode once the screen times out. Was wondering if anyone has had this problem or has found a fix. I have already been through my settings and have changed it.. The only I have not done yet is a hard reset. any feedback would be greatful.

Otterbox cases...not available?

😡

Nothing has become available for this, t-mobile version, phone yet. Aren't they all the same? In my experience, Otterbox cases have always been the best protection for any phone. Any word on a new product for this phone?

Battery Life?

I know it's got 1500 MAH but I had a full charge, live in a 4G area with full bars, didnt use the phone over night and it dropped to 48% by morning. It survived 40 mins of Pandora and the rest of the day without calls, text or e-mail, I just wonder if it's common.
WOW, really? that sucks. I don't have the phone but read three reviews from here, Engadget and Phone Arena and each site stated it performed on average with many other Android devices.

I would have the 4G off when not using it, I would assume that...

Im on ATT

And looking to get this bad boy once Att gobbles up Tmobile. Truly better than anything on ATT.
well depending on what they(at&t) does with the spectrum...this beast might end up becoming useless ☹️
...
In two years when they actually merge phone lineups, there will be far better phones available.

Final specs?

I heard around that this was supposed to have a 1900Mhz 3G radio as well
Nope.

There was conflicting info out there on that very issue. We went back and forth with LG and T-Mobile about it, trying to get official confirmation. We didn't publish our specs until we got it sorted out.

The final word I received is that i...
