Re: MY G1 won't dial from the contacts list.
You probably had the sim card in a phone that had text messages stored on it.....might be time for a new sim card.....
try turning off the handset and turning it on again. eitherway, if you replace the sim card that should update the voicemail number in the network fixing that error. or just call t-mobile at 1800-937-8997 and they should be able to gix it from there. this is a network malfunction that cannot be fixed from your end if the powercycle fails. good luck!

Factory restoring is the next step. To do this, when booting the phone, you will need to hold the home button and power button as the phone is booting. Keep holding these even while the G1 screen is displayed. After about 30 seconds, the screen will change to a triangle. On the triangle screen, you will then wait approx. 5-10 seconds and then press the home and power buttons one more time. This will bring up an options menu that will let you wipe and restore your phone settings. As long as you have your gmail information in the phone, you will not lose your contacts.
If you dial your phone number from your phone, it will also take you to your voicemail. You may want to consider doing this permanently as dialing your own phone number counts as mobile to mobile minutes (free) instead of daytime minutes. :)
You should update the 'System' on your phone.
Go to Settings>About Phone
Select 'System Updates' to get your system up to date. This should get you going with Android Market.
You will need some internet connection for this.
You don't "Pay" to listen to voicemail unless you have a prepaid account. It does however come out of your minutes. Anytime you are using your phone you are using minutes. Now, as far as someone leaving a voice mail on your number, it does use minutes as well, but each rate plan comes with 500 minutes for voicemail (you can see this on your bill).
This problem had been bugging me for over a month now so I decided to just try and wait it out. First I deleted all the threads individually that the phone would allow me to so that just left me with 3 big threads, one that had 1300 messages and 2 that had about 650 each. I went into each thread and hit delete and when the "force close or wait" message popped up I hit "wait". Then it came up again about 5 minutes later so I hit "wait" again. I kept hitting "wait" each time and the thread eventually deleted. The ones with 650 took about 10 minutes of waiting to finally get deleted, the one with 1300 took about 20 mins but eventually they were all gone and now my phone is running much more smoothly. So just wait it out. Its annoying but worth it in the end.
Well i am not an expert on phones but try these methods: 1) On your G1 phone dial your own mobile number on it (just in case your voice mail number that came on your phones doesn't help you plus sometimes it asks you for your password and dialing your own number doesn't ask you this or at least on my G1 it doesn't) and it may prompt you to set up your voice mail and from there just follow the directions from there. or 2) Gently take the sims card (that small white chip next to the battery) out of the phone and if you have another /old phone ( T mobile phone if possible) and place the card in there and dial your own number again then see what happens. If you get the voicemail set up in another phone take the sims card and put it back in the G1 and have someone to call you but either turn off the phone or don't answer it so this will give you the chance to test your voicemail. I used to have a razor and i had set my voice mail up on that. It stayed on there since i used the same sims card. I hope this can help but again i am not an expert.
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.
