I have had my G1 yesterday. When I charged it by usb today, it powered off suddenly. It can't be power on by pressing the End Call button. The battery can be used with my good friend's G1.

    I have a new problem with my HTC G1 --- it won't SWITCH ON! I was just surfing the Net using the
    WIFI, and it was working fine. After surfing, I switched off the
    screen and put the phone on standby mode. After a while, I noticed the
    green blinking light which usually meant that a text message has just
    arrived, so I tried to activate the phone but the screen remained dark. It stayed this way, with a dead screen and the green light
    continuing to blink, and wouldn't turn on/off no matter what button I
    pressed. Finally, I decided to remove the battery to force it to
    switch off. I then tried to recharge the battery, but still no
    response from the phone so it's not a battery problem. Any advice please, anyone? Thanks.

Sounds like the red buttons have stopped working. you can attempt to reset the phone, if that fails either the button will need to be replaced, or you can contact T-mobile for a replacement given it is still under warrenty.

to reset the phone, try this:

with it OFF press the HOUSE and the POWER buttons until the phone powers up with a triangle and a yellow '!'inside. slide open the screen and press 'ALT' and 'W' at the same time. the phone should boot up as normal. if that fails, call t-mobile 1800-937-8997 for a replacement.

Ok so i got a G1, and the problem is it wont turn on. even when i charge it, it wont turn on. The farthest it goes it to opening where it says G1 and then it turns off after that. Whats wrong with it, do i...


Try hard resetting it once. But make sure you have enough charge. But this will erase everything.

To perform a Hard Reset


  1. Turn the phone off. If it is frozen, take the battery out and put it back in.
  2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
  3. Press Alt+L.
  4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
  5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.

I lose battery life fast why?


While using the HTC G1 there are different features such as watching YouTube, listening to music, programs running in the background, using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®, constantly synchronizing e-mail that can drain the battery quickly.
To improve battery life, refer to the following information: • When you don't need 3G services, set your phone to connect to a 2G network. To do this, press HOME > MENU > Settings > Wireless controls > Mobile networks, then select the Prefer 2G networks option. • When your G1 is not in use, press END CALL/POWER to switch off the screen. • Select a shorter idle time before the phone screen switches off and lower the screen brightness. To do this, press HOME > MENU > Settings > Sound & display > Brightness and Screen timeout. • Use the AC adapter to plug your G1 into an external power outlet whenever possible. • Turn Bluetooth and Wi-Fi off when you are not using it. To do this, press HOME > MENU > Settings > Wireless controls. • Turn off your phone connection to GPS satellites when not in use. To do this, press HOME > MENU, tap Settings > Security & location, then clear the GPS satellites option. • Close battery-intensive programs, such as the Camera, when you are done using them.

I have a g1 and it downgraded to 1.0 how can I upgrade it without a manual update


How to Update G1 Phone Firmware RC33

1. Download RC33 update from Google here.

2. Rename the download file from signed-PLAT-RC33-from-RC30.f06aa9b3.zip to update.zip, and place it at the root i.e the very top directory of your Micro SD card. (If you added the file to your microSD card by connecting the handset to your computer via USB [rather than using a dedicated microSD card reader], make sure to unmount it and disconnect the USB cable now.

3. Turn off your G1 Make sure it's completely powered off. Now again turn it on by holding the Home+End keys until you see T-Mobile G1 logo.

4. From the icon screen, open the keyboard and hit Alt+L.

5. Press Alt+S to begin the update. Remember, the update needs to be in the root of the Micro SD card and needs to be named update.zip.

6. Once it finishes, follow the onscreen instructions and press Home+Back to finish.

7. G1 Phone will reboot a few times to flash different parts of the firmware.

If all went well, you should now be running the latest update, RC33. Enjoy your new, shiny RC33 update, complete with Google Latitude!

To make sure all your hard work wasn't for nothing, hit Menu > Settings > About Phone > scroll to Build Number. You should see RC33 in there somewhere.

My G1 worked perfectly fine last nite and this morning it didn't turn on please help!!!!


if none of these suggestions work your phone is defective...hold the power button longer to turn it on. if not that your battery is dead. if your phone isnt charging up, your battery charger is defective. if you know someone with a usb charger, you can try theirs

My g1 phone wont let me put pics on my computer suddenly


My next step would be to try a different USB cord.
Next thing to try is pop the sd card out of the phone and then back in.
If that does not work power cycle the phone.
After that your guess is a good as mine.

G1 touch screen not working


my workaround is to charge with a different power source, or stop charging. i think it's the power source. for me, the touchscreen goes crazy when i'm charging via usb with this old computer, but it's fine when i stop charging. it's probably an unclean power source messing with the capacitance sensor.

Power surge on hub port


I am having to send my wife's curve out for repair today as it seems that the very fine connections made to the circuit board from the power port have come away. This port seems to be very fragile, and poorly designed IMHO given that it has to be used so frequently.
