The browser will not flip when the G1 is closed, this is by design and the browser is meant to be viewed in landscape mode as opposed to portrait. Landscape allows for more viewing area. If the device is in portrait mode it would in fact take away from the viewable area of the page and the information viewed would be scrunched up on the screen.

If you find out other wise, let me know but hope this helps as well.

Hi there,

Seems like their could be potentially a mechanical problem with regards to the screen orientation.
Or your settings could be wrong.

Whilst in the Internet browser you can change from portrait to landscape by pressing the menu key, Touching the "more" tab, and then scrolling down to "flip orientation".

Due to this being a possible hardware problem i would advise contacting T-Mobile Customer support to see if they have a remedy. Although, in the near future, an application will be released for android giving the G1 Auto-Orientation features using the phones built in accelerometer.

Hope this helps

I have a sidekick and when i changed it to spanish, now doesnt do anything at all it powers on and the rolling ball doesnt work and doesnt responds to anything, anyone knows something ?!


You may need to perform a Master Reset. This will fully restore your phone to it's factory settings.

To do this, remove your SIM card and follow these directions:

1) Flip the screen as if your about to close it.

2) On the upper right hand side look closely. You will see a little arrow pointing to a small circle.

3) Push in the circle with a paperclip and at the same time hold down the power button.

4) Remember to push both at the same time and keep them pushed in until the phone turns off.

5) Once the phone turns off you have done the hard reset successfully.

6) Then, turn your phone back on normally.

My phone 's screen turns a rainbow and stripes color


hold the home and power button when turning your phone on. this should take you to a black screen with like a triangle on it. Hold "alt+w" and this should wipe your phone to factory settings.

if that doesnt work you may need to reinstall android completly. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=491350 follow these steps and make sure you have the right image file. its rc29 for us or rc7 for uk. they both can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=442480 (under step 2 in preparing to root your phone.

Kill Switch


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 ?

Camera


Its designed so that the camera only works with the phone shut. There are no camera functions controlled by the keypad. For instance if your camera shield is closed and your phone is open if you then open the camera shield the phone will tell you to close the phone.
