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.

I locked my phone with a pattern code, forgot what it was, attempted to open it too many times....with the wrong code and now it says on the screen to enter my Google account to get my phone unlock but...


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

My G1 is puk locked how do i unlock it


I had the same problem.. G1 phones are not really designed to deal with this issue very easily.
The only way around it is if you either:

a) remove your SIM card and put it in another T-Mobile phone, you can enter the code that way
or
b) take it in to a T-Mobile store and they will put it in one of their phones for you to enter code

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.

Unlocking keypad lock


To lock the keypad so that you don't accidentally call anyone, simply press AND HOLD the red "end call" button.

To release the lock, press the left menu button, then hash (#)

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.
