    click on the link

    also read this above instructions
    f you own a T-Mobile G1, you certainly know that the screen orientation already changes from portrait to landscape when you slide out the keyboard. That said, the screen will not rotate when you simply turn the device in your hand… even though the accelerometer on-board is there to make this feature possible (you would think!?).
    Good news is a hack…er… update is already being worked on that will rotate the screen for you. In the video above, you’ll notice that when the device is turned, the screen turns… Turn it back to its original orientation, and it turns back. Simple. But handy.
    Apparently this feature is already claimed to be part of the SDK, so developers will simply need to unlock the new feature for their app. Stay tuned for more apps and games coming to the G1 with auto-rotation built in… But this all kind of makes me wonder why this wasn’t built-into the original Android OS in the first place?===========
    and for further help click the link again
    As all of you know that G1 have accelerometer but so pity that it doesn't come with Auto Rotate Screen function.
    Rumor: G1 auto rotation feature to be available soon

    here's a possibility that the auto-rotation feature will be available soon, since it is being developed. The screen orientation will rotate without having to pull out the keyboard.

Call up tmobile, do not tell them you have a rooted phone or that it was modified in anyway, otherwise they will blame it. They will be able to help you get it working by modifying / adding some settings in your phone.

How to set up voicemail on g1 phone

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.
