    When i connect the G1 to any sort of charger (even in a cradle) it says that it is charging but it doesnt actually charge. If i monitor the %charge it goes down instead of up.. ive tried new batteries n that doesnt work.

    ALso when i connect it to my laptop it again says charging but my computer freezes when tryin to open the SDcard in my computer. so im guesing that a pin is not making proper contact in the usb socket on the phone?

    any1 had the same problem or got any ideas on how to fix it?

Blame it on weather maybe, I have this problem often. I found that if you don't try and charge it ALL the time, it may work better. I have even created a cradle to keep it from moving while charging.
The car chargers have this problem more.
Let me know if this helps.

Sd card not working on g1 phone. How do you fix it?


If you are charging the phone the SD will become unavailable. I heard it is only if using a 3rd party charger, but it also happens if you are connected to a computer via USB.

If this is not the case, it could be a formatting issue with the SD card.

To remove the card,hold the phone in landscape orientation, slide open the keyboard and you will see a little tab on the device (not on the slide part) to the right of the keyboard pad, near the bottom... open the tab with your fingernail and then you can push in the sd card to get it to release... make sure you unmount it in 'settings/sd card and internal storage' BEFORE you take the card out or you risk corrupting the info on the card...

USB connection is not working

Here's where to get hold of solutions to this common problem.

it's most likely cos

1. you don't have drivers for the usb

2. You haven't enabled usb connectivity
Make sure USB Debugging is turned on. On the G1 click the Menu button and go to Settings > Applications > Development and check USB Debugging if it isn't already.

3. If everything fails, you may need to check your cable to see if it's still okay. borrow another one or buy cheaply from a reputable seller on ebay.

for more info.

Wont charge. i plugged into so many usb cables and box chargers and light wont turn on nothing charges it

Your charging port is probably bad. It is a common issue. You can take it into an electronics shop and they could fix it by sending it to the manufacturer, but it might cost more than a new phone like the HTC incredible

I just dropped my Android G1 and now it won't turn back on. I took out battery and put back in but nothing. Is there any way to reset this phone?

There is a small hole on the bottom of the g1 where you charge it. Something small like a paper clip or something can fit inside and that will reset the phone to factory settings. Not sure if it will turn it on though...

My problem is that the carging part from my phone is damege n won't charge my phone wat do I do

Thats a tought porblem. You could find a old phone that uses the same battery and use the charger port of the old phone to charge your battery. A call to your cell provider may help finding what phone also uses your type of battery.Old phones can be bought on ebay or craigs list for cheep. Find your battery model number and google " phones that use _ _ _ _ _ battery. good luck.

Downloading photos from G1 phone to laptop

At the top of your phone display you will see a USB icon. Click on the top of the screen and mount the memory card. Your computer will recognize your memory card as a disk drive.

Click on my computer and select the letter for the memory card. Look for the photo folder.

T-Mobile is doing an over the air upgrade to fix some syncing problems this week.

Contact 611 from your cell phone and select G1 support for more information.
