T-Mobile offers two free G2 smartphones with unlimited family plan

Several BGR readers have emailed us to point out a new limited-time promotion T-Mobile is running, and we’re glad they did because it’s quite an attractive deal. The caveat: you’ll have to put all those shiny new dual-core Android phones from CES out of your mind, and ignore the second wave of next-generation smartphones set to be announced later this month at MWC. With that out of the way, T-Mobile is offering not one but two free T-Mobile G2 smartphones with the activation of a new unlimited two-line family plan. The carrier will also waive both activation fees, normally $35 a piece, and ship your new smartphones to you for free. The plan runs $179.99 per month all-in, and includes unlimited nationwide voice calling, text messaging and data — “4G” data, no less — for both phones. This is a Web-only promotion and T-Mobile hasn’t said how long this limited-time deal will last, so hit the read link for the rest of the details. More →

T-Mobile G2 is free through January 20th

The Consumer Electronics Show was packed to the brim this year with forthcoming Android phones and tablets, but truth be told, T-Mobile didn’t have much to offer in the way of beastly new smartphones to look forward to. Now, it’s entirely possible that the scrappy carrier is saving most of its goodies for Mobile World Congress next month, but some of you may be in need of a new smartphone and can’t wait a month or more to get it. You’re in luck — from now through Thursday, January 20th, T-Mobile is offering its latest Google-powered QWERTY slider for the low, low price of free-fifty. All you have to do is sign on the dotted line and prepare to sit on the sidelines for the next 24 months while new Android smartphones continue to launch and best each other on a near-monthly basis.

T-Mobile G2 overclocked to a blistering 1.42GHz

Kids, don’t try this at home. Seriously. Despite the fact that the Internet let out a collective gasp when the T-Mobile G2 was revealed to sport an 800MHz processor, the handset is fantastically responsive out of the box. But that won’t stop the good folks over at xda-developers from ripping T-Mobile’s latest G-phone apart, of course. Forum member coolbho3000 has posted all the goodies one would need to overclock a T-Mobile G2 to a blistering 1.42GHz. While we recommend strongly against attempting the mod unless you really know what you’re doing, that shouldn’t stop anyone from ogling the results of this great hack. Hit the jump for a video of the G2 tearing through benchmarks like a champ. More →
