    I want to make sweet, sweet love to it. I currently have a dumb phone. (Recently dropped my smartphone in a lake) Winning this would make me very very happy.

  • madeincanon

    I plan on rooting it and flashing a custom rom! And of course surfing on T-mobile’s 4g network!

  • jameshkd

    definitely give it as a present

  • Kent Burton

    it works on wifi right??? I will use it as a wifi only device.

  • David

    I could use a g2x… The one I have is super buggy :-(.

    • Torrance Barber

      Speaking from experience…If you win it, root it, put a custom rom on it

  • r1ch

    Looking at the spec sheet, if it supports the 1700 and 2100Mhz 3G bands, there’s a number of UK networks (carriers) that support that. If it’s unlocked, it should surely work on these too?

    I’d like to be entered into the competition please! :)

  • Eric Ortiz

    I would use it to give to my sister. She needs to leave cricket and her less than sturdy Sanyo android phone.

  • Leon Hitchens

    I plan on using it to read news, reply to emails, and work on Google Reader.

  • Bulletcollector

    Finally swap out the mytouch 3g

  • gstorrs

    I plan on playing games on it. Please pick me.

  • FaSSt2001

    I would keep it and give my Vibrant to my daughter. Love the Tegra!

  • Rob Banks

    I would pass my Atrix along to my wife and keep this as my birthday gift to myself!

  • skugern

    I plan on watching Netflix, playing games and web surfing with it.

  • Tyler Speidell

    Play with it a few days, decide whether I’d rather use this or my Nexus S day to day, and the other goes straight to development

  • Ekatomb

    I’ starting right now to learn some Android dev basics. I’ like to have a tablet to code some tab-oriented application…

  • bullonie

    I would give it to my mother! She dropped her first phone in the toilet a month after she bought it. :/

  • Anne L.

    Honestly, I’d give it to my sister for Christmas. She’s been stuck on her Samsung Behold II for awhile now and is eager for a new Android phone, so this will be a fab gift to her :D

    Good luck to everyone! ^_^

  • LilSmurf2009

    I want it!! First thing i would do??????? of course rooted.

  • cwjones4

    this would make a great upgrade to my current phone! I would use it until the GS3 comes out, then probably upgrade from there.

  • Cody Hilton

    Upgrade from my old htc

  • Dix Ramos

    Put CM7 and give it to my father. I prefer I Nexus S :-)

  • Sean the Electrofreak

    My girlfriend has always said that I need one phone that I keep stock, and one phone that I tinker with… I would make my LG G2X into my tinkering phone!

  • Baron Munchausen

    I am just going to give it to a friend at work that still uses ST TOS type flip phone.

  • rmcsc

    I see a little silhouette-oh of a phone, G2x, G2x, would you be my phone-dangle! Thunderbolt and Galaxy, very, very frightening, me!

    Android and Me, Android and Me, Android and Me, let me win!

  • Fiasko

    I would have CM7 on that bad boy in a heart beat and use it as my daily driver!

  • sorcie

    replace my creaky zte blade. but gotta put CM7(9 would be nice!) on it!

  • laosgurllynn

    My SGS4G lags alot and theres not that much stable roms for my phone since developers left it for SGSII. Sometimes I would have to boot it 4 times a day due to how much things I try to do on my phone, in which I do everything! With the G2x,, I can finally lay my old phone to rest.

  • JDNorthwest

    I’d upgrade my wife from her current myTouch. I like to keep her happy.

  • mjazar12

    I would like to replace my iphone 4!

  • Alex Carlson

    I plan to give it to my mom for christmas! she is still using a flip phone…

  • JustinUnderscore

    Hmm… if it’s unlocked, I’d put my current AT&T (ugh) sim card in it right away for until my contract is up, then switch to a T-Mobile plan as soon as I could. Otherwise I’d use it on WiFi (and maybe cheap prepaid) until I could switch to T-Mobile full time… I’d use it to keep connected, browse the web, read AndroidAndMe posts, and of course, to make and receive calls every once in a while. :P

    I’d also definitely take pictures and videos with those nice cameras it has… I have an idea for a custom camera app I’m going to write soon that would be especially awesome on this phone.

  • Torrance Barber

    Does this mean the tablet half of the giveaway is done? No no i’m melting…..oh… what a…

  • dl22

    Hi. I plan on preaching from this tablet.

  • romans5three

    I would tweet my victory!

  • reverenddak

    I would call my sister, who I never call, and she’s annoyed about it. And maybe my mom.

  • Prime

    I want it for gaming!

  • perlowin

    This would be a perfect Christmas gift for my 12 year old daughter!!! Please, please…

  • bigpar

    Rule the world! HAHAHAHAHA….ok…maybe just some social networking…

  • freddayyy

    I plan on rocking that super fast Tegra 2 processor with some games, listening to music, browsing the web, and texting all at the same time as Facebooking lmaoooo

  • sdtrinity3

    With a Tegra 2 inside? Games, games, and more games!

  • kemargrant

    If I win this g2x I’ll download all my hd game and hdmi to my tv and give my myTouch 4G to my wife

    • dacatalyst41

      Now that sounds like a plan!

  • gigstarr

    I’ll activate it and start using it right away!!!

  • Gordon Wheeler

    Besides using it to check in with the boss, I shall play Let’s Golf. I’ll probably take a few pizza photos with it also. Might throw some CM7 (or CM9 when it’s ready) at it.

  • Alec Waddelow

    I would use this to get my fill of dual core power!

  • jamboy5590

    wrapping it up and putting it under the tree :)

  • Nolan Meilinger

    Sweet Thanks

  • Dale Bebeau

    I plan to take pictures of my new Galaxy Nexus with it! Thanks Verizon! (Took you long enough)

    • dacatalyst41

      Post your unboxing before everyone else cause there’s about to be a frenzy of them!

  • Brandon Blanton

    I would give it to my wife. I accidentally broke her Droid X2 a week after upgrading, so now she’s stuck using my old Eris. This would be an awesome Christmas present for her and would possibly convince her to forgive me.

  • teknqe

    I plan to regift it as a Christmas gift for a friend that still stuck using a blackberry

  • jak2rocks

    Well, it’s my birthday today, so I would just enjoy it and get rid of my crappy G2. Probably sell it on Please let me win!

  • aude66

    I will “”

  • EwanRGR

    I’m trying something new today. See, I’ve heard that your chances of winning the lottery are about the same as your chance of finding the winning ticket for the lottery in the street. So by that logic, I have just as good a chance of winning this by not leaving a comment as I do by leaving one. So I’m not going to leave one today. HAH! Take that AandMe!

  • jsalvidr

    G2x is old, but would be nice

  • sahaskatta

    I could definitely upgrade my aging HTC EVO 4G!

  • gentleman25

    Since I have an iPhone, I would like to experience android.

  • asifriyaz


  • Craig Mogi

    Looks Fun

  • felixb01

    Use it for everything — this would be my first SmartPhone

  • arwolverine25

    i plan on using the g2x as my new phone cause i still have to mytouch 3g :/

  • Ben Marvin

    I would give it to my sister. She’s still rocking the G1 and needs an upgrade badly.

  • Dboy352

    I would love to be able to get rid of Sprint and switch to Tmobile so I will actually have a signal, just don’t have money for a new phone since it’s Christmas :(

  • Peter Livingstone

    I will use it and give my Droid X to my daughter.

  • Wasabi

    I’ve been on T-mobile ~15 years (started back in the Voicestream days). I’d like to have an epic new phone to add to my collection that would be a really big holiday present: a small token for me, and a big gift for all of us TMO subscribers – the merger doesn’t go through and AT&T really gets spanked by the FCC.

  • DaMiFo

    I’m stuck with a GalaxyS. I would love to have this thing. A phone that has more than decent internet speeds would be really awesome! :)

  • Shackled

    With out a doubt root, ICS instantly.

    • dacatalyst41

      EEEEEEXCELLENT! (In my Mr. Burns voice)

  • cappleby121

    I would game it up with some great android apps

  • custeve217

    If I win I will replace my aging Vibrant which still doesn’t have Gingerbread. It’s just getting too old to use.

  • redraider133

    I plan on using it for my technologically lacking father who needs a new phone from his aging “feature phone” that has a terrible signal and only works half the time.

  • chimphehe

    The tech babbles me, I’ll use it and learn about the new age of phone! Yum!

  • cliffcalvin

    I currently own a G2, and it’s sad to say I’ll probably never get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, unless…

  • superusermode

    I’d either:
    -> use it to help a pair of genetically altered mice take over the world
    -> I’d install a custom ROM and just enjoy the phone

  • POrg

    I would give it to my wife for her birthday, her MyTouch 3G isn’t quite cutting it anymore.

  • darkfish1

    I’d Give it to my Father, because he has a crummy phone and is in need of an upgrade

  • cbmg23

    I plan on using it til i cant no more or i get injured haha , and then put ics on it

  • JIW

    I’d sell it to upgrade to a tablet. Already have a couple of nice dual core Android phones.



  • Joshua Barta

    I’d give it to my girlfriend, who is still using an ancient Nokia feature phone. The only way I’d be more embarrassed is if she had an i*hone…

  • DrToboggan

    I’d love to be able to play GTA 3 on my phone. Galaxy S is showing its age.

  • jaduino

    I would probably sell it so that I could afford an ASUS Transformer Prime!!!

  • merlintw

    Since I am not on TMobile…I plan on selling it on eBay. ;)

  • li tsai

    I plan to call Domino’s and order a pepperoni pizza and xinna stix

  • dunneldeen

    Everything it will let me do

  • Stefan75

    I would give it to my brother, for Christmas, since he is still using a G1.

  • Snoogans

    ill compare it to my HTC sensation and then decide. I’ll probably give one or the other to my girlfriend.

  • Joshua Melling

    YEA, unlocked is cool.

  • SLC75

    I would wrap it up for Christmas for my man!! xoxoxo

  • Patrick Laglagaron

    I’m gonna try to root it!

  • sampsjp

    Honestly? Give it to my wife, she bought the htc G2 last year and now the microphone is no good…not that I’m complaining :) So the only way to hear her is if she uses the headphones. Which I suppose is the reason for all the yelling!!!

  • louiedog

    I plan to use it, because my phone is really, really awful. Also I will install ScummVM and play Monkey Island on the train.

  • Luis Lopez

    first thing ill do… swap my sim card! yaaaaaaay!

  • Jennie Tran

    Use it to download a bunch of awesome games my current phone doesn’t support

  • PrinterPaper

    Sounds like an upgrade from a mytouch3g. Use it as a phone!

  • SmithDroid

    This ones for my son

  • Anthropic

    Argh, why do I always miss out because my damn rank thingy is always just below what’s required for each comp! :(

  • AdamLovesAndroids

    I am currently using a Optimus S so needless to say, I am in need of a new phone, and quick.

  • harugirlie

    i would email my friends that have iphones and rub it in their faces that my new phone is 100 tbetter than theirs.

  • krazyguy729

    Ideally i would re-gift it to to a family/relative, but if i do win i would probably keep it for myself. LOL.. Would be a nice upgrade from my nexus one.

  • zippyioa

    This is a great phone with the right ROM on it. LG stick was a buy iffy, I would definitely suggest CM7 :)

  • zippyioa

    This is a great phone with the right ROM on it. The LG stock was laggy and definitely didn’t show the phones true potential. I would definitely suggest that the winner checks out CM7…. it works a treat on my LG O2x ;)

  • iSlackerz

    I plan to replace my well aged SE C905 with this G2x. My C905 is well past its heyday. It’s time for it to retire gracefully where all poorly aged phones go. I don’t know where that is exactly, but it needs to go there. It’s E-Waste Recycle bag is ready and waiting!

  • eliander mendoza

    so who was the winner? :D

  • mikeytusa

    I think I am going to be the last comment.

  • iskander101

    Who won?

  • iskander101

    Who was the winner?

  • Free2bbrian

    I plan to finally get an android phone. My friends and even my mom has a better phone than I do.
    From reading the reviews I see that the LG G2x isn’t just any android but one of the best in terms of processing speeds. It sounds selfish but I really do need a new phone, my last phone from Walmart broke.

  • William McNair

    Juuust bought a Razr on VZW. Not sure I could use this, but thanks.

  • Zakhar Zuban

    I’m going to play games on it!!!

  • issac4760

    I have T-Mobile…
    I hope IM not to late to enter.

  • jhollender

    I’m not too late, am I? I would use this as my daily device.

  • b1gd4ddyx

    Sell it so I can buy a Galaxy Nexus, I’m on verizon.

  • sic789

    give it to a friend who broke her g2x and didnt have insurance

  • loanerdave

    I will give it to my wife and finally get her off that old Blackberry. Oh the joy to b had with video chat! ;-)

  • lvang8

    I would root, load ICS, and drive in for a better experience!

  • serg0123

    First thing I’ll do is make a movie for Christmas!..

  • crumbut
