Google G1 Locked, ( No Sim Card ).

1) You'll need to borrow a SIM from a friend of yours to access the phone.

2) Open the market and install an application named "wosim".

3) Turn off your phone and then turn it on again.

Configuring G1 phone for etisalat uae...

Hi there,

If the phone is unlocked then you shoudl not have any problems, besides, the G1 unlocks automatically after 90 days or at least the UK T-Mobile version does. If you don't want to use 3G then make sure you turn it off in the wireless settings.

Not read any sim card on g1

hi there,
have you checked if it works with the sim card it was sold with?

it may be sim-locked, to prevent any other usage.

if you got it somewhere, you will have to wait approx. 1 year and a half before you can use it with any other card.
I dunno how to and cannot advise you to tweak it.

G1 wont delete text msgs

Hi there.
Factory reset will delete everything (not in all cases though) back all your numbers up to the sim card, back photo's and games up to the memory card (if you have one) and restore the phone to factory.
As for any messages forget them.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

I bought a t-mobile g1 off a friend

Just borrow a friend's t-mobile sim card, go through the Google linking process... then go to settings -> wifi  turn wifi on, connect to a network. turn the phone off, remove t-mobile sim card, put yours back in.

Android not reading my SIM card - no internet, though phone works

Did you know if your G1 is unlocked?
Seeing that you're using AT&T, this may be the issue. So once you have your G1 unlocked, everything should be breezy.

1. The G1's Not a Real Media Player ... Yet
The iPhone doesn't just play back video—it's one of the best (and best-looking) portable media players on the market. While we'll certainly see developers making video playback programs for the G1, there are none built into it. But Apple beware: If there's one thing the open-source development community loves, it is support for a wide range of video formats and codecs. All it will take is one robust mobile playback program (mobile VLC, perchance?) to make users remember just how much they hate converting videos into MP4 so they'll play on an iPhone.

2. The iPhone is Thinner
The G1's slide-out keyboard may be useful, but it comes at a price: The G1 takes us back to the pocket-bulging smartphones of yesteryear, while the iPhone is svelte enough to fit in the front pocket of your Levis.

3. No Multitouch
The G1 uses a capacitive touchscreen. This is the same highly sensitive type of screen found on the iPhone (most touchscreen phones use mostly inferior resistive touchscreens), and should allow the G1 to compete when it comes to touch sensitivity. But the G1 does not have the iPhone's multitouch capability. While the G1 attempts to make up for it by utilizing "long-touches" to bring up deep menus, it loses out on the huge amount of functionality (and coolness) that comes from the iPhone's ability to sense two fingers at once.

4. Terrible Headphone Jack
The iPhone proved that people were willing to listen to music on their cellphones. Still, most manufacturers are reluctant to put a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack on their phones, forcing customers instead to use bulky adaptors or subpar bundled headphones. The 3G iPhone bucked that trend (the original had an annoying recessed headphone jack that could only take specially made headphones), but the G1 relies on an irritating proprietary plug. To make things work, early indications are that adaptors won't even be available when the phone first hits shelves, making the bundled headphones the only choice.

5. Internal Memory
The iPhone currently comes in 8 GB and 16 GB varieties, and we'll likely see a 32 GB version before long. The G1 has just 192 MB of onboard memory, and comes with a 1 GB micro-SD card. That's not really enough memory for a phone that's supposed to be full of music and downloaded applications. If you want an 8 GB G1, you'll have to purchase an 8 GB micro-SD card, which will push the price of the phone from $179 above the iPhone's $199 price tag. If T-Mobile, Google and HTC really expect us to use the G1 as a mobile computer, they'll need to give us more memory.
