2 of T-Mobile's most exciting devices that are arriving this month, the dual-core LG G2x and the Samsung Sidekick 4G, have just gone live on Wirefly's pre-order site. Wirefly, one of the largest online mobile retailers, is sweetening the deal on the G2x by $50 compared to MSRP and on the Sidekick 4G (pick black or pink) by $20.

Both devices come with free activation for the pre-order period and, of course, ship for free as well. Mark April 20th in your calendar if you make an order, as that's the date both of these bad boys are set to ship on.

The G2x at 25% off sure sounds like the best deal on this devices at this point, and remember - if Wirefly lowers the price in the next 30 days, you will automatically get the difference, thanks to the 30-Day Pre-order Price Guarantee.

    Great deals for these devices.

    I called wirefly and asked them about the micro sd card. it specifically says " In box- microsd card- YES"

    She couldn't tell me the size of the card.

    I also called Amazon and they don't even have the G2X in their system and said it might be over a week till they offer it up.

    I will most likely jump on this deal. Has anyone bought phones from wirefly before? My brother bought his G2 in store and has been having problems with it (Wifi connection issues). He has been able to bring it to the store for a new one without issue. I just don't want it to be a major hassle to have to ship it to them if something goes wrong.

      I've gotten multiple phones from Wirefly before, and granted none of them had issues, it was the easiest experience every time. I'm sure if there was a problem, they'd deal with it accordingly, but like with any online retailer (including Amazon), you'd have to probably deal with shipping - neither have offline hubs to deal with exchanges.

        I have heard several horrible stories of Wirefly messing up orders. I am glad that you had better luck. One thing I was wondering was concerning the "contract" with wirefly.

        A T-Mobile rep stated that Wirefly will charge you $150 if you cancel your contract or simply change your plan.

        I understand the whole cancelling the contract fee, but what about if we are allowed to get out of the contract due to changing service (In my case it would be the AT&T/T-Mobile merger)?

        Are they going to charge me even though I legally may be able to get out of contract for free?

        Also, if just changing the rate plan will cost a fee, that seems unfair. If I have too many minutes and could go one step down, why should I get penalized....

        Anyone have any insight to these questions??

          I've shopped with Wirefly many times and they always work for me. The T-Mobile rep might not have been well versed on how Wirefly works. Wirefly does not mess around with rebates they give you an instant discount ahead of time as opposed to going to a T-Mobile store buying the phone and waiting 3-4 months to get your rebate.

          By purchasing from Wirefly your basically agreeing to not alter your plan or cancel your account for 181 days. After this time you can make as many changes as your heart desires. Basically know how many minutes you'll be using before you go in there getting a plan with too many min (you can easily do this by calling your current service provider and asking them for the average amount of min you use for the past 3 months). Right now they have a 79.99 plan for unlimited talk txt and web. you cant beat that!

          Wirefly works for some people including me, but it doesnt work for all people for example a person that likes to change phones every month and an indecisive plan changer. The merger wont happen for another year so it wouldnt even matter because Wirefly wont charge you anything at that point again 181 days.

          Good LUCK!

          Well I ordered through Wirefly. Got 2 day shipping added ($8 fee) so it can for sure be here by Friday the 22rd. Not sure why they ship them out on the 20th but for the money I am saving it is a no brainer to wait 2 extra days.

          Goodbye iPhone 3GS, Hello Android :)

    Sometimes I hate that I can't get a new phone between the two years that my contract gets extended. That G2X looks way better than my G2 and I only got it a few months ago :(
