I need to get my password for g1


You will need to reset your phone to it's factory defaults:
  1. Power off the G1
  2. Hold Home Key + End key for 20 seconds or until you see a "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1"
  3. Open the QWERTY keyboard and hit Alt+W
Let me know if that works for you. Thank You.

My G1 screen goes blank when i close it


First try SOFT RESET

1) Turn Off the Phone
2) Remove Battery
3) Remove Sim Card
4) Put battery and sim card again
5) Turn On the phone
6) Press Menu
7) Factory Data Reset (Remember that: This action will reset the phone to its initial factory state, erasing all data and wonloaded applications, so BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP first you try this).
Press "reset phone"


IF STILL NOT WORKING TRY:HARD RESET
1) Turn off the Phone
2) Press HOME + POWER KEYS (keep them holding for about 25 secs)
until you see a screen with a phone and a triangle.

then

3) SLIDE YOUR KEYBOARD TO OPEN IT
4) press ALT + l ( TO SHOW YOU OPTIONS)
5) Press ALT + W ( TO FORMAT ALL DATA)

Note: When I write the sign + you don't have to press the + sign, it means that you need to press both keys @ the same time.

Pantech Freezes Up


I had this problem, and ended up having to do a Master Reset. If possible, back up any data on the phone prior to doing this because you will lose all contacts, etc.

You can perform the master reset by removing and and the Sim Card then re-installing the battery. Open up the slider and hold the S and L keys on the QWERTY keyboard. While holding these keys, turn the phone on. Continue to hold the S & L keys until you receive an 'error missing sim card' screen. (It still took a while to progress beyond the AT&T screen...don't give up...it gets through it eventually.) After you get the missing sim card error message, turn the phone off, remove the battery, re-insert the sim card, re-install the battery, and then turn the phone on normally.

It will now behave like a brand new phone, without any of the data saved.

No qwerty keyboard


hi! i just had my "missing qwerty keyboard" problem solved today!  im from hong kong and just got my viewty the other day, when i realised that i didnt have the qwerty, and there were no answers anywhere (manual, online...) i brought my phone back to the store.  apparently, eventhough the phones' language has been set to english, you'll still have to set the "writing language" back to english.  you can do this by going to: create new message >> message >> clicking on "options" (button at the bottom left of the screen) >> writing language >> then choose "English" >> OK >> and viola!!  you'll see a confirmation that "language has been changed"
you can double-check by clicking on that drop-down menu button with the "pen icon & A" that allows you to choose text input preferences.  you should be able to find "keyboard" there.

enjoy!!

(btw, i love my viewty!!  best phone ever!  i hope youre enjoyin your phone as much as i am!)

IPhone 3g vs HTC G1


I phone misses Some really important functionality.

The Virtual keyboard, while innovative and good looking, lacks the functionality of a proper QWERTY Keyboard, The contracts in the UK and possibly the US for the iPhone are an absolute Rip off, and the applications in the Appstore arent nothing special.

now on the Other hand
The T mobile G1 IMO is way better thn the iphone. it has better hardware Specs such as better camera, Full Physical Qwerty Keyboard and Proper Google GPS etc.
also because the OS is completely open source, absolutely any application can be made to work on the phone ! anything you can think of. if you want something creating, chances are it will be added to the OS at some point through the amazing Android Market !

Also the T-mobile contract prices are Way more better than that of the iPhone. and the customisation of the G1 way outperforms that of the iPhone !

G1 Keyboard problem


i was in my local T-Mobile shop (UK) yesterday checking out the G1 before release date, Whoever said it isnt a high quality keyboarad has some serious personal issues. the keyboard on the phone is Really high quality, with backlit keys which are slightly raised to assist in typing, dedicated shortcut and programmable Keys and a really sturdy Sliding mechanism on the main screen ! as with most of HTC's QWERTY phones, the Keyboard is Top notch !

Hope this Helps
