T-mobile phone lock and new update

Since I downloaded the new update for my G1 I notice that the phone turns of randomly, if you have a lock code at the home screen it automatically goes into the lock mode asking you to input the gmail username and password, even if you have not attempted to put the code in 5 times. Is there any way to lock my g1 without having this issue? It is really annoying. Updates are supposed to have enhancements not issues.

This is just a glitch with the new update but once you input your gmail username and password it should not happen anymore. Good Luck.

PS. If you do not remember your username and password check out the links on how to reset the phone. It will help you reset the phone without loosing any of your information in most cases.

Google G1 Locked, ( No Sim Card ).


1) You'll need to borrow a SIM from a friend of yours to access the phone.

2) Open the market and install an application named "wosim".

3) Turn off your phone and then turn it on again.

Configuring G1 phone for etisalat uae...


Hi there,

If the phone is unlocked then you shoudl not have any problems, besides, the G1 unlocks automatically after 90 days or at least the UK T-Mobile version does. If you don't want to use 3G then make sure you turn it off in the wireless settings.

I am locked out of my G1


sorry but u have to reset it


if you 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.

Home+Back reboot system now - (Soft Reboot)
Alt+L - Toggle log text display - (Toggles between the exclamation and menu options)
Alt+S - apply sdcard:update.zip - (Not brave enough yet)
Alt+W - Wipe data/factory reset - (What I chose, had to re-register, out of the box settings)

Google G1 locked out


T-mobile is the only wireless provider that will even work with this phone....so kinda a no brainer....;)

if you had too many incorrect pattern attemps, the handset will automatically lock you out of your handset....if thats the case, the only thing left to do, is either go to the link i have below and trying to restore the forgotten username and/or password....just answer the questions the webside asks for and you can log in again....

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=46346&fpUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Faccounts%2FForgotPasswd%3FfpOnly%3D1%26continue%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fmail.google.com%252Fmail%252F%253Fhl%253Den%2526tab%253Dwm%2526ui%253Dhtml%2526zy%253Dl%26hl%3Den%26service%3Dmail%26ltmpl%3Ddefault&fuUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Faccounts%2FForgotPasswd%3FfuOnly%3D1%26continue%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fmail.google.com%252Fmail%252F%253Fhl%253Den%2526tab%253Dwm%2526ui%253Dhtml%2526zy%253Dl%26hl%3Den%26service%3Dmail%26ltmpl%3Ddefault&hl=en

if that fails you will have to reset your handset and create a new login with your phone.

the handset will need to be powered off, then press and hold the house and the red buttons at the same time until you see a triangle with a yellow "!" inside....when you see this screen release those keys and slide open the keypad and press the "ALT" and "W" keys at the same time. the handset will turn off and power on again and walk you through the setup. here you can either attempt to sign in again with the underscore or you can create a new account.

*******careful, any new numbers you added since you had the g1 will be lost if you cannot log in again with the same username and password******

good luck! :)

G2 Phone


Nothing official has been released by T-Mobile; some speculation is that bloggers are mistaking the HTC for the G2. But because the G1 was just released in October, it's extremely unlikely that T-Mobile will come out with version 2 until some time next fall. Though if there is a major design flaw discovered in the G1 it may be sooner.

1. The G1's Not a Real Media Player ... Yet
The iPhone doesn't just play back video—it's one of the best (and best-looking) portable media players on the market. While we'll certainly see developers making video playback programs for the G1, there are none built into it. But Apple beware: If there's one thing the open-source development community loves, it is support for a wide range of video formats and codecs. All it will take is one robust mobile playback program (mobile VLC, perchance?) to make users remember just how much they hate converting videos into MP4 so they'll play on an iPhone.

2. The iPhone is Thinner
The G1's slide-out keyboard may be useful, but it comes at a price: The G1 takes us back to the pocket-bulging smartphones of yesteryear, while the iPhone is svelte enough to fit in the front pocket of your Levis.

3. No Multitouch
The G1 uses a capacitive touchscreen. This is the same highly sensitive type of screen found on the iPhone (most touchscreen phones use mostly inferior resistive touchscreens), and should allow the G1 to compete when it comes to touch sensitivity. But the G1 does not have the iPhone's multitouch capability. While the G1 attempts to make up for it by utilizing "long-touches" to bring up deep menus, it loses out on the huge amount of functionality (and coolness) that comes from the iPhone's ability to sense two fingers at once.

4. Terrible Headphone Jack
The iPhone proved that people were willing to listen to music on their cellphones. Still, most manufacturers are reluctant to put a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack on their phones, forcing customers instead to use bulky adaptors or subpar bundled headphones. The 3G iPhone bucked that trend (the original had an annoying recessed headphone jack that could only take specially made headphones), but the G1 relies on an irritating proprietary plug. To make things work, early indications are that adaptors won't even be available when the phone first hits shelves, making the bundled headphones the only choice.

5. Internal Memory
The iPhone currently comes in 8 GB and 16 GB varieties, and we'll likely see a 32 GB version before long. The G1 has just 192 MB of onboard memory, and comes with a 1 GB micro-SD card. That's not really enough memory for a phone that's supposed to be full of music and downloaded applications. If you want an 8 GB G1, you'll have to purchase an 8 GB micro-SD card, which will push the price of the phone from $179 above the iPhone's $199 price tag. If T-Mobile, Google and HTC really expect us to use the G1 as a mobile computer, they'll need to give us more memory.
