    having problems connecting to the google servers

  • Russell Jacobs Nov 16, 2008

    I havn't been able to connect to the data network for almost a week now and I'm getting the same error messages you guys are (the data plan
    worked perfectly for me for almost three weeks)
    . T-Mobile tech support hasn't been very helpful either. They (halfheartedly) told me that the google servers had become overwhelmed with a higher number of people purchasing the G1 than they thought was going to and with all the new data connections, the server just wasn't able to handle it. That’s certainly
    a plausible explanation, but it still sounds a little specious coming from
    T-Mobile (given their not-to-honest tract record). I’m wondering if our
    problems have to do something with our location…I’m located in North Dakota on
    a roaming network, where are you guys located in (if you don’t mind)?

    I
    recently got a T-mobile G1. When I turned it on, it says there that in
    setting up my phone, I need to have a Google account. When I tried to
    sign in with my Google account, this message appears: "There is
    a problem communicating with the Google servers. This could be a
    temporary problem or your SIM card may not be provisioned for data
    services. If it continues, call Customer Care". I've
    tried many times to sign in, I even tried to create a new account. I
    also tried using different SIM cards. But still, this message appears.
    What can I do to make my phone work? I
    hope you guys could help me.

    I am on DAY 6 of this same problem. I have been on the phone with customer support every day since trying to get my phone to work. No luck. They have tried to see if it is a problem on the network end, on Google's end, on my phone... and nothing so far. My "trouble ticket" has been in their system for 4 days now with no resolution so far.

Put tmobile sim in to g1 and sim or network problem so cant registar with google


Do you have a data plan for the G1? Sometimes if your device is not provisioned for google/data on the network, it will not connect. Check your plan....if anything, call 611 and have them check it out

After reset , cannot login to gmail


I guess you have factory reset the phone and it swap out everything.

The G1's much-vaunted first step during the setup is to enter your Google login username and password. Once that happens, the G1 attempts to connect to Google's servers to get your email, contacts, and calendar set up.
Here's the thing, though, if (or when) the G1 cannot connect to the servers, you're done. There is no way to exit out of the Google setup screen, no clear way to reset the phone to bypass it (even in "safe mode"), no way to turn on WiFi.

Connecting to google server


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.

I can not to connect with google servers


Your out of luck. That phone is using a Google operating system. It requires Google servers to activate it. It could be restricted for US use as well pointing to US Google based servers.

Reset G1


Hi, I had that problem. I first verified that my TMobile internet was activated on my account and on my SIM card by putting the card in another phone and connecting to the 'net on it. Then I found the APN setting on the G1 and I changed the APN at the heading "T-Mobile US" from the new 3G APN "epc.tmobile.com" to the older APN "internet2.voicestream.com". The APNs can be accessed on your still-locked phone by pushing the "Menu" button at the sign-in screen. Scroll down to "T-Mobile US", select it and change "epc.tmobile.com" to "internet2.voicestream.com", exit by pushing the left-arrow button a few times, then re-enter your GMail info. If the "Edge" icon has appeared in the menu bar area, then you're golden!
