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!

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 that has an headphone jack that has stopped working. I believe it is due to use and is isolated to the jack itself. I have look inside the jack and there is no specific...


Not really. you can get a new port, but it would cost alot to get it replaced, you can buy usb adapters to get audio out.
Have you checked the playback devices in sound properties to see if your default playback device has been changed, maybe to HDMI or usb device

Volume too low - don't have headset that came with it - I have various headsets, but only one works - can I buy just a headset?


yes you can, but that should not be the problem. make sure you are not plugging it into the line out this does not tie into the volume switch. if your plugging it into the headphone jack and believe its just faulty headphones go to walmart and buy new ones.

Have new lcd hdtv. Have old headphones can they


Yes. 2 possibilities:
1 - the new tv has a headphone jack - just plug them in.
2 - no headphone jack - buy a RCA to phone jack adaptor, plug it in the audio line out RCA connectors, plug the headphones into it and mute the tv.

Connecting ipod to Bose lifestyle 48


I have a Lifestyle 48 and called Bose today. It is possible all you need is a cord that is a 35mm headphone jack on one side and RCA jacks on the other. You plug it into the AUX jack in the back of your system and the headphone jack in the Ipod headphone spot. I got the cord at Best Buy for ten bucks. It works GREAT!

1. The G1's Not a Real Media Player ... Yet
The iPhone doesn't just play back video—it's one of the best (and best-looking) portable media players on the market. While we'll certainly see developers making video playback programs for the G1, there are none built into it. But Apple beware: If there's one thing the open-source development community loves, it is support for a wide range of video formats and codecs. All it will take is one robust mobile playback program (mobile VLC, perchance?) to make users remember just how much they hate converting videos into MP4 so they'll play on an iPhone.

2. The iPhone is Thinner
The G1's slide-out keyboard may be useful, but it comes at a price: The G1 takes us back to the pocket-bulging smartphones of yesteryear, while the iPhone is svelte enough to fit in the front pocket of your Levis.

3. No Multitouch
The G1 uses a capacitive touchscreen. This is the same highly sensitive type of screen found on the iPhone (most touchscreen phones use mostly inferior resistive touchscreens), and should allow the G1 to compete when it comes to touch sensitivity. But the G1 does not have the iPhone's multitouch capability. While the G1 attempts to make up for it by utilizing "long-touches" to bring up deep menus, it loses out on the huge amount of functionality (and coolness) that comes from the iPhone's ability to sense two fingers at once.

4. Terrible Headphone Jack
The iPhone proved that people were willing to listen to music on their cellphones. Still, most manufacturers are reluctant to put a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack on their phones, forcing customers instead to use bulky adaptors or subpar bundled headphones. The 3G iPhone bucked that trend (the original had an annoying recessed headphone jack that could only take specially made headphones), but the G1 relies on an irritating proprietary plug. To make things work, early indications are that adaptors won't even be available when the phone first hits shelves, making the bundled headphones the only choice.

5. Internal Memory
The iPhone currently comes in 8 GB and 16 GB varieties, and we'll likely see a 32 GB version before long. The G1 has just 192 MB of onboard memory, and comes with a 1 GB micro-SD card. That's not really enough memory for a phone that's supposed to be full of music and downloaded applications. If you want an 8 GB G1, you'll have to purchase an 8 GB micro-SD card, which will push the price of the phone from $179 above the iPhone's $199 price tag. If T-Mobile, Google and HTC really expect us to use the G1 as a mobile computer, they'll need to give us more memory.

Problems with Headphone and USB plugs


I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too... Anyone have a fix??

Cannot hear music


The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.
