    my phone is locked i have the g1 and i dont remember my screen name or email i gave to set up

  • shayankhan10 Nov 28, 2008

    I would say try to master reset the phone . but for some reason that is not working . I have a same problem . And I read some where to master reset the phone you have to power off the phone and turn in back on while holding Green and Red power button at the same time for 20 Seconds then after the Google logos disappears press Alt+T.



  • gogash Nov 30, 2008

    The problem is bigger i'd say, because now after i finaly, found out how and master reseted my G1, the google log in account appears anyway. I made a new gmail account but after 10-20 sec of attemting to login tells me to retry again in few minutes! There's no logic in making you register your account online BEFORE you even adjusted you phone for connecting!!! SO does anyone have something to say
    please i'm desperate

You need to factory reset your phone. this website shows you what to do without having to access anything on your phone - the first step is shutting it off. follow these steps and your phone will turn on, the only drawback is it will be like its new, and you'll have to re-download all the apps and stuff. it also has you sign up for gmail, and i suggest that you create a gmail address and write it down so it doesnt happen again :)

Its not that easy^ he/she needs the gmail account he/she used when he/she first got the phone to unlock his phone, but the phone keeps telling him that his/her username or password is invalid.

Have you attempted looking for solutions on the T-Mobile / HTC Websites ? have you looked in the G1 manual? id have a look now for you but work blocks most of my internet capability which Sucks ! if you have no luck i suggest you call T-Mobile or have a look through the guide and look for how to complete a Master Reset of the phone !

Hey i have an answer!!!!! ok turn your phone off then press and hold Home and Back now let go of back press power then press and hold back again.you should be holding both Home and back. now the G1 should show a red green and blue screen keep both bottons down until a gray screen comes on. the screen should have directions on it saying This operation will delete all your personal data. and reset all settings to manufacture default. just press send and it will restore the G1 to original settings. if you hav problems contact me at Bigb10728@Gmail.com

Make a new email account in Gmail (through the phone is easy) and that gets the phone working. If you can't find the old email address you probably didn't need it that bad anyway.
When you do find it, it also easy to get the old gmail account to forward to the new one (I use that method to get instant copies of emails on the phone, with everything staying on my main email account).

Posted on Oct 28, 2008

You must have a gmail account to use the phone. Just login on the phone if you have one or create one if you don't. Its not a big deal

The G1 is not good


All mobile phones have email address. You can sent emails to your friends mobile phones, can you? So if you can send emails to friends, then you can send photos to them and to any other mobile phone and computers, as long as you have the email address of those you wish to send them photos. Do this. if your old phone has a Photo and Video library (yes, you must have, its in the phone, check it.), better still, does your old photo have a camera? If so, then you have a Photo and Video Library. Go to Photos, find and click 'Viewer', small thumbnails of photos appear. Select the photo to wish to send to any other mobile phone, the press 'Send'. Depending on the brand you have, in this case an LG phone, a window appears, asking you if you want to send the photo via Multimedia msg, Email or Bluetooth. Select Email and click OK button. Another window appears with the To: If you havestored phone numbers in the old phone, together with friends email addresses then click Ok button again and it takes you to another window with a list of your friends addresses. select any one and then you 'Mark' the photo first with a check mark. then you probably have to press 'Done'. After done this, you can press Send and voila. the photo is being transmitted to air. If you want to do the same procedures, such as sending the photos to your new phone, all you have to so is select not your friend's name but your own name in the old phone. If you have ever sent a photo to your PC, note that special email address. Use that address and see if it sends the photo to the new phone. Usually it does. If not, the phone provider will tell you what email address your phone has.

Was locked out of G1 phone becuz pattern was drawn to many times, entered my userid and password but the phone still won't unlock. saying invalid username or password. I can however enter gmail on the home...


Right now the G1 is having issues logging into the phone after you get locked out using a screen pattern. Just try to remember to write down the username and password you used the first time that way you won't lose the information on your phone by having to reset it. Also make sure you are typing it carefully and make sure to enter your whole gmail address too (Ex. example@gmail.com). Also if you have had to change your password from a computer after you logged into your G1, it does not take the password change. A way to avoid that is to login to the G1 again. Sync your contacts to gmail first (Settings > Data Synchronization > Menu > Sync Now). Then go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Google Apps > Clear Data. To sign in again go to Settings > Data Synchronization and it will give you the option to create an account or sign in.

My phone is locked i dont remember what user name i usee to set up an account or even if i set up one


You can't set up the phone without using an account, so you did use one. One quick way to find out what the account you used to set up the device was is to just go into the IM (Google Talk) application and see the email address that is listed under "Google Talk account:" option in the "Chat - Select an account" setting.

Keyboard locked and i'm on my last try? 8350i curve with nextel


Remember that if you type in the PIN "5815" (example) on the BB keyboard without holding down the ALT key you are really typing "dxwd" but you can't see it because it does not show the typed letters only the *****. Try entering the letter form of the numeric passcode. One more example. If your passcode was "1234" enter "wers".

Good luck!
