Under my location sources

turn off Use wireless networks

turn on Enable Gps satellites


Then you actually have to go outside turn it off and then back on (the g1 itself) OUTSIDE.

Have you actually enabled the G1's GPS receiver within the phone ?
the GPS is not switched on out of the box aswell as Wifi and Bluetooth.
Try going into the settings and enabling the GPS Satellite receiver and then use the maps application to see if the Satellites can Triangulate your position and find where your at !

hope this helps :D

-----------------------------------------

location by wireless network is very buggy and the phone will try to use that first instead of the gps, plus it will show just the location of the cell tower you are using for communication and not your actual location if it even comes up.

but If gps is just enabled it comes up fine every time.

My gps icon keeps blinking on g1


In home screen, press menu, and press settings. Press Security & location. Uncheck "Use wireless networks," and check "Enable GPS satellites." GPS should now work.

HTC G1 dead, can't power on, factory reset/soft reset not working


Well try to get your hands on either a second G1 phone or a multimeter to rule out a battery issue. If you take a charged battery from another G1 and it still doesn't turn on you will have a logic board issue. With a multimeter you can measure the battery directly, if the phones doesn't turn on if the voltage is over 3.7V, you'll have a logic board issue as well. Within one year T-Mobile should give you a replacement. 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.

G1 not Playing Youtube Videos.


i know how it sucks when you purchase a new mobile and you face something like this. But i have an answer for you. i had the same problem last week and i have found a solution from one of my friends. this problem happens when you open many programs at the same time and the programs are stiull running under. To solve the problem go ahead and turn off your G1 mobile for about 30 seconds. it will start working when you turn on your G1. turning off your G1 will close all the programs running under...good luck

Hello,

You need to be set up for the G1 data plan through T-Mobile. This is the 24.99 plan for g1 data + 400 texts, or 34.99 for g1 data and unlimited texts. If you are setup through online billing, you can do this through the website by clicking "Account>Add/Change services". If you do not have web billing, you can contact billing by phone.

Note - it can take up to 24 hours to become active, but on mine, it only took 10 minutes.

G1 wont take pictures


I  had a similar problem, I fixed mine by formatting the SD Card in my computer, installing it into my G1, then restarting. You miss out on whatever was on the SD Card from Google, but at least you get to use the camera.

Hope this helps, Eric
P.S. I've called tech support to see if I can re-download whatever was on my SD Card to begin with, and as of yet there is nowhere they could direct me to, to download whichever files were stored there.

How can i get my gps to work


It's in the maps program under settings. Once it's activated you will get a warning message about the battery life going down when in use but it should deactivate once you are off of Google maps. You will see a satellite dish icon on the upper part of the screen once it is on.


It's works better in mapping mode than satellite mode as well. Due to the amount of time it takes to redraw the screen.

T Mobile G1 GPS Problems


G1 Gps Problem Fix - I recently had the same issues with the gps giving me the location of cell towers instead of actual location. After looking around the forums, i found the fix and it worked.
Clear you maps cache by going into your application data.
Settings : Applications : Manage Applications : Maps : then push "clear data"
Make sure both your wireless and gps are turned ON
Turn off Phone
Take it outside somewhere that is clear of obstructions (like a large parking lot, or field)
Turn on phone
Once on, press maps
Let it sit in one spot for about 5-10 min, then press my location.
It should find you in just a few seconds. Mine took about 30 seconds.
This should fix most problems you are having.
