Great little device that I used for well over 5 years on T-Mobile (USA), after becoming a "Sidekick refugee" (Remember those, kids? The granddaddy of smartphones?), when the Danger.com servers went dark. The G2's humble Android 2.3 still handily did everything it needed to do (Netflix, HBOGo, etc.) with no real "must-have" apps it would not support. Seeing as how there are simply no comparable more current options out there with decent physical qwerty keyboards, I just never bothered upgrading. Sadly the HSPA+ precursor to 4G LTE (basically a souped-up version of 3G) is being phased out by T-Mobile. This occurred without the least warning from T-Mobile here today in the Washington, D.C. area, and my trusty old HTC T-Mobile G2 just threw out the anchor and ground down to 2G-only speeds. I wish I hadn't bought a new battery for it off eBay just last week! On the one hand, T-Mobile richly deserves a great big razz for not even bothering to let a customer of 14 years know that his phone was about to stop working properly, but then on the other hand, now that I have wasted a good part of the morning just figuring out just what the hell was going on, they ARE sending me a freebie LG K10 replacement...No shipping and handling, no sim activation fee, no cost whatsoever...Zilch. Still, my trusty old G2 will be missed. I wonder if I can get it to work as maybe a prepaid on another US network like Boost. Suggestions welcome.
i got this phone a few years ago so today i decided to see if it still worked. it turned on but my play store wouldn't work at all
My problem is the phone goes off and on and it says system crash please help me?
Pls my htc g2's memory clip cut off & the clip on the panel got spoit too, how do I construct it from the clip on the mother board direct to the memory card port so that external SD will show , I need direction on the movement of legs or flex wire ?
upload/ download another APP like mobomarket from google and get the APP that yu want.

Yhunng, 24 Nov 2013Why does the phone heat too much.ahh it burns my hand when am streamingCause it's metal, it's a good conductor of heat that's probably why.
