By default, the screen it set to auto shutoff after 2 minutes. Just press any button to turn it back on. You can change the shutoff time by going to Menu > Settings > Sound & Display > (scroll down) Screen Timeout. Raising it will cost battery juice however.

The force close message comes from the application crashing. Are you using the default text messenger, or one from Android Market? The apps in Android market are developed by third party programmers and are often buggy.

Try downloading Txtract from the G1 Market. It's listed under "tools". Use this application to save the text messages you've been hoarding to your SD card, then delete the text messages from your phone. Your G1 will work like new again!

Cant send or recieve text messages on my mobile phone


hi, if you are having trouble sending or recieving text messages then the fisrt thing you need to do is delete all the sent and recieved messages and also drafts due to the fact that if your memory is full this will give you loads of problem sending and recieving text or mms messages so deleting these will then get your messages working again.

If how ever you still cant send or recieve text messages then the chances are that your message center number is wrong or got mest up, what you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them to send you the text message center number settings, they will then tell you the correct message center number and how to change this setting on your phone.

They wont charge for this and it will only take 2 minutes to solve your problem.

Have a LG Cookie 500 when I send a text get =cannot send/retrieve messages, just stoped sending I can recieve text! got new sim but still the same Please Help!


This can occur when you compose a message and then hit recipient and then enter the contacts name. The phone will say 'Sending' then 'Cannot send/retrieve messages'.If you enter the recipients NUMBER the transmission will work OK.

If you want to send a text to someone by NAME, select their name from the 'Contacts' list then hit the Message icon (envelope). Write the message then hit send...

Deleting Texts Messages


try to delete all threads at once by going to menu then delete threads.....after the force close error messages, you should be okay. i know it wont allow you to delete thema t once...so try all at the same time.

just heads up, this is a known issue and should be resolved once the cupcake software reslease is out....until then, keep your inbox UNDER 100 text messages and it will help prevent this from happening until that update comes out.

worse case scenario. if you do have to reset the phone, all your contacts and calender info will automatically be synced with phone given you remember the username and password for your google account. good luck! :)

Does your phone have a data plan attached to it through T-mobile. I know there is one plan that contains 400 messages to it.

If you do check with G1 support at T-Mobile to find out if there is network issue or a software bug.

They can fix it on their end.
