T-Mobile G2x Pulled From Site For Quality Issues?

Perhaps the hottest phone on T-Mobile's lineup, the G2x, has mysteriously disappeared from the carrier's website. According to TMoNews, the phone may have been pulled for quality issues. A search for the device on T-Mobile.com currently only results in G2x accessories, but no sign of the device itself.

Despite the great specs and even our own positive review of the G2x, the device has run into several problems since its launch. Customers have voiced complaints of random reboots, light leaks, and other quality issues. Originally thought to be a firmware problem, the G2x being pulled could signal a much more serious hardware problem.

T-Mobile was set to have a midnight sale today to include the G2x, but tweeted late last evening to change their offering to the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G instead. We'll keep you posted on how this develops, whether T-Mobile confirms any of the issues and if so, whether they plan to recall and replace.

    I already had one and returned it due to continuous radio issues, battery usage pattern (known and expected but it still sucks), and 2 Sims it ate (I had 3 SIM cards in 6 days).

    My G2X has had alot of issues with powering on/ randomly not turning on (when it is on stand by and you are trying to make call/ use your phone).  It is fully charged and works perfectly, then I need to make a call check email, then it doesnt turn on.  After alot of trouble (power button start) I have to remove the battery and it will reboot.  I also have issues with the battery.  It doesnt hold the charge.  I charge it all night, then it dies after some basic use of phone.  I figured it was due to the big screen.  I am not on the phone all day by no means, but it should hold a better charge.  The biggest issue is accessing/using my phone when I need it.  This is an awesome phone, but these issues make me hate it and I cant wait to get rid of it.
