You need a t-mobile data plan for the G1 to connect to the internet. Make sure you have one of those first.

The APN (Access Point Name) for the G1 is epc.tmobile.com
You can find where to put that in the browser settings.

They're not going to release an app that's going to make your phone not be able to connect to their marketplace so you can't buy anymore. That's just a ridiculous proposal.

Anyway, I've got this problem also. Just started happening, I was downloading in the marketplace one day, the next I'm "Communication Error"ed. Somebody around this place got an actual implementable solution?

Have you configured APN Settings under network->Cellular data?

Normally carrier pushes these settings automatically, but if not, they should be able to configure the same (APN Name, Username, Password.

Usually username and password is left empty.

Let me know how it goes.

It would help to know your carrier and country.

This configuration is working perfectly using ZT321, Baizhao 8928 and IPhone Clone A380 and probably will work using other China Phones.
If your SIM card is previously activated using other phones specially those phones supported by Globe and Smart, no need to activate your SIM. This is also valid for postpaid users since SIM cards are pre-activated for MMS, GPRS and other services.
But if your SIM is not yet activated or never been used for MMS and GPRS, you need to activate your SIM before you can use MMS and GPRS services.
For Smart SIM, you can use your China Phones to activate MMS and GPRS by simply sending/texting MMS ON / GPRS ON to 333 (I don?t know if this number is still valid). No need to download the configuration for Smart. Just use the configuration I?ve given.
For Globe SIM, this is a little bit harder and need some workaround. I tried to call Globe Customer Service but they cannot activate your SIM manually on their system and the only way to activate it is by downloading the configuration thru text or by asking them to send the configuration. But since China Phones are not yet supported by any Service Provider, what you can do is to active MMS and GPRS using another phone. Monitor until your SIM is activated then transfer your SIM in your China Phone and enjoy surfing and sending MMS.
In another forum, they said you can try using configuration for SE p900. I?ve never tried this but if this really works, well and good for China Phone fanatics.
