I asked the tmobile rep to tell me specifically about the loose hinge issue on tmobile g2 and this is what he said.

"There were some reported issues when the phone was first released. The hinges were simply loose, allowing for too much movement of the keyboard. This lead to those that push harder on the buttons, to warp the hinges further (which would be those that reported a 'dangling keyboard') Once the issue was noted, all phones that were sent out after that were corrected. Those that did have the loose hinges received an exchange with the corrected hinges."

Looks like Tmobile/HTC corrected the problem!

i don't think so, I just received one last week and the hinge is fairly loose.

I hope this is true... I want another one. It's not "annoying" it's more scary that I'll break the screen off the keyboard thing thing. Yeah, thing-thing.

I don't know about that... Got my second G2 on 12/20 and the hinge is still loose.

Are you guys expecting the snappy feel of the G1? That's not gonna happen.

I received one on the 22nd... and the hinge doesn't hold it solid once it is in place. I plan on returning it and trying to get one that isn't bad.

I'm content with my "loose" hinge on my Desire Z. It opens due to gravity, as one should expect with this design. When facing a normal direction and not held by just the bottom half the hinge is very nice and easy to open and close.

My G2 was very snappy when I first got it. When I pushed slightly it would fly open or closed and it felt very strong. Upon peering into the loose hinge issue, I opened my phone slightly and seems that weakened the hinge instantly.
