Yes the Android OS Has a Kill Switch.

This doesnt meen google can start removing everything from your phone. the Kill switch is in place for security reasons. because the android market is open source unlike Iphones Appstore. the Applications are scanned but due to the Open-ness they arent screened as Rigorously as by Apple (who only let certain apps into their store).

The kill switch is ONLY in place if there is a Malicious / Broken app that can potentially damage and/or hack your phone.

The kill switch is a GOOD thing. u dont wanna download an application only to find out it damages your phone or Does something wrong to the Android OS do you ?

Chances are you'll have to buy a new one but there a couple of things you can do to avoid that.

1st make sure you do NOT plug the phone in. That's the quickest way to kill it for sure.

2nd remove the battery, SIM card and memory card then place phone in a bowl of uncooked white rice up to 24 hours. (I've never tried this myself but have been told it works pretty well)

Last is to put it back together and give it a try. If it's still not working, it's time to buy an new one.

Goodluck!

HTC G1 Sync


at the moment there is no Exchange support for the G1 phone, Fortunately though, with it being Open-Sourced OS i can guarantee some person and/or company is Creating a program for the phone which allows Push Exchange support for outlook etc ! as it is a widely used program.

There are already programs created which allow the Synching of Outlook Contacts and it Does support Pull POP3/IMAP email
