Question about HTC G1

2 Answers

No headphone jack

I can't believe that the new G1 will have no headphone jack. Will it work the same way with the USB connection or do you have to buy it separately? I have never heard of a smart phone withno headphone jack. If they want to compete with the iPhone 3g they have to have something that support it.

Does anyone have more information about it?

Thanks

Nicky

As with some of the Current and old HTC mobile phones, there is no 3.5mm Headphone jack, HTC use a proprietry ExtUSB slot which handles Charging, Transferring data from PC to phone, And Listening to Music !

if you want to listen to music and use standard 3.5mm Jack Headphones on the G1 you need an ExtUSB to 3.5mm Converter, they are really easy to use and cheap pieces of equipment, you can buy them off Ebay or from Phone stores !

Hope this helps

The USB HeadPhone Jack should work the same way as regular headphone jack. I have it on my Motorola phone and it works great even better.

But I have never seen the actual G1 phone so I am not sure about this.

Let me know when you get it!

USB connection is not working


Here's where to get hold of solutions to this common problem.


it's most likely cos

1. you don't have drivers for the usb

2. You haven't enabled usb connectivity
Make sure USB Debugging is turned on. On the G1 click the Menu button and go to Settings > Applications > Development and check USB Debugging if it isn't already.

3. If everything fails, you may need to check your cable to see if it's still okay. borrow another one or buy cheaply from a reputable seller on ebay.

for more info.

How to put music on my G1


Make sure you are in the home screen of your G1

Connect it to the USB cable

On the upper left corner of your g1 screen you will see a sub icon and the words "USB Connected"

Press the "Menu" button

Select "Notifications"

You will see "USB Connected". Select to copy files from/to your computer.

You will be given two options:"Mount" and "Don't Mount", choose "Mount"

Your G1 should now show up on your computer.

There will be three folders: "Album Thumbs", "DCIM" (for pictures), and Music.

Now just transfer what you want to the G1.
I hope this helps and good luck!

How do I upload pictues from my g1 onto my computer


First, connect your G1 to your computer using the USB cable, and when the notification comes up on your phone asking whether you want to mount, click mount. Then in 'My Computer' a new drive should come up i.e. F:/Drive and that is your G1. After this you can copy and paste any pictures you want to your computer.

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'

How do you download photos from G1 to laptop?


Step 1: Plug in your USB cable to your G1 T-mobile phone as well as the computer.
Step 2: On your G1 T-mobile phone you will see a small icon at the top of the screen that symbols the USB.
Step 3: Pull down the notification window down and click on USB Connection.
Step 4: Automatically on your laptop computer or just computer a window will pop up giving you the option of importing pictures and copying them or just viewing them.

These steps are the correct steps.....T-mobile G1 technical support has not yet modify these steps or include them on the T-mobile G1 manual.

In car connection


I believe that jack is an AUX RCA connection.  As far as I know they dont make that cable but you may be able to bypass that

and use a straight RCA connector and that should work.
