I just got my g1 and i'm already having problems the phone powers on fine but is not creating a gmail and it said that its having problems connecting to g servers and something like my sim is not provision for data services
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.
Could not activate phone and spoke with several T Mobile support people before reaching T Mobile G1 tech support. G1 tech support suggested removing the battery and sim card to re-establish data connection. This worked for me.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

yeah and alot of the vista computers have a phone program already installed that works with most phone =) you should be able to extract information off your phone =) just a little extra information =) you can also sync your contacts with your google email account via your phone so if anything happens to your phone once you put your sim then gmail into another google phone (G1, G2, or mytouch) you can sync your contacts right back!
I guess you have factory reset the phone and it swap out everything.
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.
You need to have a data plan on your SIM card, or a friend with the same provider with a SIM card you can borrow. The phone REQUIRES a data package to activate. You can however get past the activation, however this is quiet involved. I would google search it if you really want to attempt to get past the problem, but I am warning you, this is tough.
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!
