    Same situation here. They told me at the store it should take 5 to 30 min, but could take a couple of hours. 12 hours later, I called the customer care, and they said it could take 48 hours. When I asked the store about this, they said they'd credit my account, and that they'd heard it could take up to 72 hours. I've been waiting 48 hours now, and still have no phone. I'll be taking it back today.

Hello,

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.

I got a new g1 cz my old one stop wrking. I was wondering if der is a app or a way that i can put my old txt in computer and copy to new g1?


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!

After reset , cannot login to gmail


I guess you have factory reset the phone and it swap out everything.

The 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.

Was locked out of G1 phone becuz pattern was drawn to many times, entered my userid and password but the phone still won't unlock. saying invalid username or password. I can however enter gmail on the home...


Right now the G1 is having issues logging into the phone after you get locked out using a screen pattern. Just try to remember to write down the username and password you used the first time that way you won't lose the information on your phone by having to reset it. Also make sure you are typing it carefully and make sure to enter your whole gmail address too (Ex. example@gmail.com). Also if you have had to change your password from a computer after you logged into your G1, it does not take the password change. A way to avoid that is to login to the G1 again. Sync your contacts to gmail first (Settings > Data Synchronization > Menu > Sync Now). Then go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Google Apps > Clear Data. To sign in again go to Settings > Data Synchronization and it will give you the option to create an account or sign in.

Your out of luck. That phone is using a Google operating system. It requires Google servers to activate it. It could be restricted for US use as well pointing to US Google based servers.

Reset G1


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!

HTC G1 Sync


at the moment there is no Exchange support for the G1 phone, Fortunately though, with it being Open-Sourced OS i can guarantee some person and/or company is Creating a program for the phone which allows Push Exchange support for outlook etc ! as it is a widely used program.

There are already programs created which allow the Synching of Outlook Contacts and it Does support Pull POP3/IMAP email
