G1 Keyboard problem

Does anyone tried the new G1 Keyboard?

I read somewhere that it is not very high quality. This is very important for me since I really like QWERTY Keyboards but if this Smartphone will have a low quality Keyboard I will not buy it.

Thanks

Carry

I was in my local T-Mobile shop (UK) yesterday checking out the G1 before release date, Whoever said it isnt a high quality keyboarad has some serious personal issues. the keyboard on the phone is Really high quality, with backlit keys which are slightly raised to assist in typing, dedicated shortcut and programmable Keys and a really sturdy Sliding mechanism on the main screen ! as with most of HTC's QWERTY phones, the Keyboard is Top notch !

Hope this Helps

I have a g1 and it downgraded to 1.0 how can I upgrade it without a manual update


How to Update G1 Phone Firmware RC33

1. Download RC33 update from Google here.

2. Rename the download file from signed-PLAT-RC33-from-RC30.f06aa9b3.zip to update.zip, and place it at the root i.e the very top directory of your Micro SD card. (If you added the file to your microSD card by connecting the handset to your computer via USB [rather than using a dedicated microSD card reader], make sure to unmount it and disconnect the USB cable now.

3. Turn off your G1 Make sure it's completely powered off. Now again turn it on by holding the Home+End keys until you see T-Mobile G1 logo.

4. From the icon screen, open the keyboard and hit Alt+L.

5. Press Alt+S to begin the update. Remember, the update needs to be in the root of the Micro SD card and needs to be named update.zip.

6. Once it finishes, follow the onscreen instructions and press Home+Back to finish.

7. G1 Phone will reboot a few times to flash different parts of the firmware.

If all went well, you should now be running the latest update, RC33. Enjoy your new, shiny RC33 update, complete with Google Latitude!

To make sure all your hard work wasn't for nothing, hit Menu > Settings > About Phone > scroll to Build Number. You should see RC33 in there somewhere.

Call up tmobile, do not tell them you have a rooted phone or that it was modified in anyway, otherwise they will blame it. They will be able to help you get it working by modifying / adding some settings in your phone.

G1: Well I cut my phone and the G1 logo appeared then ...


YOU MAY NEED A NEW "FLEX CABLE" OR LCD..THE FLEX CABLE HOLDS THE LCD TO THE BOARD AND ESPECIALLY WITH SLIDE PHONES LIKE THE G1 THEY SOMETIMES COME LOOSE OR GO BAD OVERTIME FROM SLIDING THE PHONE UP AND DOWN TO ACCESS KEYBOARD. CHECK YOUR AREA FOR A TECH.

I broke the lcd screen ..where to get a new


If you can't get a replacement under warranty there is both an T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and a third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Service, If you try a self-repair make sure you feel comfortable with opening devices that are not meant to be user serviceable.

Why does my YouTube videos on my G1 keeps freeezing


it usually takes more time for videos to download on your phone than it does on a regular computer. cellular file transsfer isnt fast enough to stream vvideos of high quality. it would help to pause the video for awile and let it download and then watch it. either that or you can take the videos url from youtube and goto keepvid.com and you can download the entire video and watch it after it completes. alwqays sselect the .mp4 version of videos since .flv videos arent yet compatible with g1 yet flash support will be coming soon

My G1 phone wont factory reset itself and i dont know what to do, im not sure if i can still return my phone and get a new one because i had it since March 13,2009


Have you tried a reset using the hardware buttons? To perform this, you need to turn off the phone first. While it is off, press and hold the home key and the power key at the same time. Keep holding the buttons until you see a screen with a triangle and an exclamation point in the middle. Once you see the triangle, let go of the buttons and open the keyboard. Press ALT+W at the same time, and the phone should reset.

Bluetooth not accepting anything


Hi
I was trying to transfer some ringtones from old phone to G1 and facing the same problem.
And now somewhere from net I found the solution to my problem.
Although it could not be done by bluetooth, but my problem is solved now.
You can also try it. It may help you out.

> Transfer ringtones/music/photos from your phone to Desktop
> Connect G1 to Desktop by USB cable
> On the top of G1 screen it will show the icon of USB (connected)
> Scroll down from the icon and select 'copy files from computer'
> Select 'Mount'
> On desktop a massage will appear, click 'open folder & show files'.
> Copy & Paste files from computer to G1. Now your files are in G1
> If you want to set any song as ringtone press & hold that song, a menu will appear and you can select 'set as ringtone'

IPhone 3g vs HTC G1


I phone misses Some really important functionality.

The Virtual keyboard, while innovative and good looking, lacks the functionality of a proper QWERTY Keyboard, The contracts in the UK and possibly the US for the iPhone are an absolute Rip off, and the applications in the Appstore arent nothing special.

now on the Other hand
The T mobile G1 IMO is way better thn the iphone. it has better hardware Specs such as better camera, Full Physical Qwerty Keyboard and Proper Google GPS etc.
also because the OS is completely open source, absolutely any application can be made to work on the phone ! anything you can think of. if you want something creating, chances are it will be added to the OS at some point through the amazing Android Market !

Also the T-mobile contract prices are Way more better than that of the iPhone. and the customisation of the G1 way outperforms that of the iPhone !
