I Give Up...
So I had returned the G2X a few days ago due to some network issues I was having. Just occasional signal drops, and other similar issues. I ended up switching to an HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon.
However, now that my dual core 'cherry' has been popped, all of the little lags with the Thunderbolt are much more noticeable. They're not unbearable, but they're definitely noticeable and can be really annoying.
So I've decided to swallow whatever issues I was having, and I'm going back to T-mobile to pick up a G2X tomorrow. In my home, where I was having most of the issues, I can use wifi instead of the network for most everything. That should help some, and then hopefully gingerbread will take care of some of the other issues, as will the new tower in my area. (the gingerbread leak is one of the things that made me reconsider staying with Verizon)
