Power off your phone and hold the home (shaped like a house) and the end (red hangup button) for about 20 seconds you get a triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1.

Then press Alt+W

You may have to request a code from your carrier. You will get a free code if you've had service for 90 days. Otherwise, Unlock-TMobileG1.com offers unlock codes for $22.99 USD. After placing an order including your IMEI code you will receive an eight-digit unlock code for your device. Your IMEI number can be found by pressing *#06# in the dialer, or by going into your settings, selecting “About phone” and then selecting “Status”. The IMEI number then can be found about half way down, it is 15 digits long.

Your IMEI numbers are needed to unlock your HTC G1 mobile phone. Reveal the codes by pressing *#06# on your phone keypad. Then after getting the information, please go to an HTC UNLOCK CODE website for you to be provided with the correct codes. You also may need to know the country and network the phone was purchased from. thanjs

Can anyone pls give me unlocking code for g1 phone on tmobile.My imei no. is 358280010461339.


Your best bet for you would be to ring t mobile and ask them to unlock it for you. Then you know its been done, its free and its correct.!

You will have to make a distinction between just locked or whole sim unlock so you can use other sims in your phone. Hope it helped!

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.

G1 How To


I wanted to unlock my G1 i recently purchased on ebay and I was not aware that its simlocked. I googled for almost half a day and I found that its impossible to unlock G1 any free method. There is many sites offering codes but most of them looked very unprofessional but at least some looked ok to me. I gave a try to FastGSM. Their service was amazing! I got code in less then 15 minutes and its price was just 20 usd. Some other sites was asking double money for same job.

Locked cell phone keypad


first, take out the battery and press the RED end call key for 15 seconds, then put the battery back in and turn on the phone.

if that doesn't work then try this from the website.

"
How do I lock/unlock the phone's keypad? To lock and unlock your phone's keypad, press and hold the left navigation key.
Or, select Menu -> Settings -> Keyguard. Then highlight either of the options and press the OK button. You can set your phone to lock the keypad immediately, or automatically if no key is pressed after 30 seconds, 1 minute, or 5 minutes.

To unlock the keypad: Press 1-2-3 in that order."

good luck!
