    My phone only takes picture sometimes.  I hold the button all the way down and it just keeps focusing.  How is this camera supposed to work?  Am I doing something wrong or should i send phone back?

As the others said, there are the two settings. I had a similar problem, then realized how it worked. You need to not press very hard while it focuses first. Then you can press all the way down, if you hold it all the way down, it doesn't recognize that you've already passed the first "Focus" pressure point and gone into the second "Capture" pressure point.

Because the camera has Mechanical Focus the camera button has 2 Pressures, Holding The first 1/2 of the button press will enable to Mechanical Focus to work, And then once the green dot is shown telling you its in focus, pressing the button all the way down will then take your picture !

The green dot shows up to let you know it is in focus. To take the picture you need to push the button past that point...

Here's how you access the pictures from your SD card:
  • Connect your G1 to your computer via USB
  • Pull down the notification menu and select "USB connected: Select to copy files to/from your computer."
  • "Turn on USB storage"
  • Now open your phone in a folder on your computer
  • You will see a folder that says DCIM (This is where your pictures are stored)
  • Open DCIM and view the pictures in the folder Camera

Why cant my g1 download picture messages?


Have you tried turning your phone off? I know that with mine I dont turn it off for almost a week and my wi-fi goes screwy. Once i turn it off for 5 minutes the phone works like brand new. Also, you may want to check and see how large the picture is the G1 can only download a certain amount of mb (?) on a single message. Not an expert, hope this helps.

The htc g1 camera takes pictures with a messed up color scheme


I'm pretty sure it's a defective CCD sensor inside the phone, especially if the image has an overexposed look and the shapes of objects appear distorted. 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.
