Ya......sorry guys. sounds like the phone is stuck on 'landscape mode'

you can try to reset it, but i doubt that this will help. you might need to contact t-mobile and get the thing replaced for the internal sensor that recognises the phoen is closed is just not registering.

either way t-mobile HAS to attempt this....so try this reset. it might just save you a phone call.

keep in mind, doing this master reset will clear all settings installed on the handset and clear out any personal data. if you can at leaset remember your gmail username and password, your contact info and calender info will be restored.....

select MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE >FACTORY DATA RESET > RESET PHONE > ERASE EVERYTHING

if that doesnt work and you just cant get into the phone, try doing this:

with the phone OFF press the house and the power buttons at the same time until a triangle with a yellow '!' shows up. as soon as you see that icon, release the keys and slide open the keypad. pres the 'ALT' and 'W' keys at the same time and wait for the phoen too boot up and attempt it again.

T-Mobile's number is 1800-937-8997 if that doesnt work. and ask for another phone. good luck all.

When I turn on the phone I get a blank screen


Hi,

there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Best regards.

G1: Well I cut my phone and the G1 logo appeared then ...


YOU MAY NEED A NEW "FLEX CABLE" OR LCD..THE FLEX CABLE HOLDS THE LCD TO THE BOARD AND ESPECIALLY WITH SLIDE PHONES LIKE THE G1 THEY SOMETIMES COME LOOSE OR GO BAD OVERTIME FROM SLIDING THE PHONE UP AND DOWN TO ACCESS KEYBOARD. CHECK YOUR AREA FOR A TECH.

I am trying to remove widgets (I.e clock,calendar) from my home screen on the g1


Very simple solution to this one. all you have to do is touch the icon on the screen and HOLD your finger there. Your phone will slightly vibrate, and the menu button will change to a little trash can. Keep your finger down and slide the icon to the trash can and Voila, it's gone

My phone screen stays on landscape mode even when i slide it down


This happened to my phone. All I had to do was update my phone. If you already did I suggest you just do a soft reset if that doesn't work you can always try to do a hard reset. Good luck. Make sure to back your things up before you do all of this.. Well atleast before you do the reset.

My G1 can't power on :<


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.

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
