Question about Google Android
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
