If it is the only button that's not working I'm sure you have a broken button membrane, T-Mobile should feel responsible for that if you're within the year of purchasing it. If you can't get a replacement under warranty there is both an T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and a third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Service, If you try a self-repair make sure you feel comfortable with opening devices that are not meant to be user serviceable.

My phone is frozzen


Hi,

It happens when the process is manfuctioned or corrupted. I advise to do a factory reset. To do so, turn off the phone, holdon the home button and press the power button. It will go to recovery console, now select "Wipe to factory setting", once finished, turn off the phone and restart. It should take care of the issue.

Thanks and regards,

My t-mobile g1 constantly reboots itself and/or


Heres what to do. Take the battery out and put it back in. You will want to hold both the home button as well as the power button when you power the phone back on. Keep holding these buttons until a screen pops up with a triangle on it and a phone below. Wait 5-10 seconds, and then press the home and power buttons together again. This will bring up the restore options to factory restore the phone. If this does not work, you will need to contact T-Mobile regarding the phone issues.

It will then give you some choices, choose wipe out your memory to factory settings and it should work after.

After a hard reboot, my HTC G1 works fine, then locks up about 5 minutes later. I've tried both soft and hard rebooting. What's the next step?


Factory restoring is the next step. To do this, when booting the phone, you will need to hold the home button and power button as the phone is booting. Keep holding these even while the G1 screen is displayed. After about 30 seconds, the screen will change to a triangle. On the triangle screen, you will then wait approx. 5-10 seconds and then press the home and power buttons one more time. This will bring up an options menu that will let you wipe and restore your phone settings. As long as you have your gmail information in the phone, you will not lose your contacts.

My g1 tmobile phone keeps turning off on me? what can i do


If it keeps rebooting itself at the G1 and Android screen, you might want to factory reset the phone and clear all the data as there may be a virus. To do this, when turning on the phone, hold the home button and the power button even while the G1 screen comes up. Keep holding these until an image with a triangle comes up. You will then wait 5-10 seconds, and press the home and power button again together. This will bring up the OS screen, and provide you 4 options. One of these options is to wipe and restore to factory. Do this and your phone should work fine after you reboot again.

My g1 phone has locked and wont accept my username and password. I have changed the password on line and checked it works but cannot get my phone to unlock


Okay the thing here is you need to master reset it.
Here's how it works:
  1. Power off the G1
  2. Hold Home Key + End key for 20 seconds or until you see a "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1"
  3. Open the QWERTY keyboard and hit Alt+W
  4. Restored!
To do a soft reboot, simply hit the Home+Back buttons when you reach the "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1" screen.

This will reset your phone as if it were brand new and your correct user name and password combination will work.

How do you hard reset g1?


If your T-Mobile G1 Google smartphone is not responding or is frozen, you may have to opt for a hard reset. Here’s how:
1. Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.
2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
Now to wipe the device clean:
3. Press Alt+L.
4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

My G1 phone wont factory reset itself and i dont know what to do, im not sure if i can still return my phone and get a new one because i had it since March 13,2009


Have you tried a reset using the hardware buttons? To perform this, you need to turn off the phone first. While it is off, press and hold the home key and the power key at the same time. Keep holding the buttons until you see a screen with a triangle and an exclamation point in the middle. Once you see the triangle, let go of the buttons and open the keyboard. Press ALT+W at the same time, and the phone should reset.
