P and delete button not working on g1

Same issue. I get a series of letters whenever I hit the p or delete buttons on my phone. And the back back button on the front of the phone does not work either. The p and delete will work on the virtual keyboard.

So this happened to me so first I blew on the keys to remove anything that might be causing it to mess up. Then I took the back off (like if youre going to remove the sim card). And put it back on. It started typing fine. Maybe it was on wrong and causing a miss read on the keys...I really cant explain why but it worked! Hope this helps!

Whenever i turn on my htc g1 it starts up and shows the sing G1. Then when it goes to the ANDROID loading section it takes 1-2 minutes and then stops?? why


Take out your SD card and try booting it up. If that does not work then power off your phone and hold the end and call button at the same time for about 15-20 sec, press Alt-W at the same time, to do a factory restore (this will delete all your data). Then restart your phone and it should work.

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.

How do I use the number and letter keys on the key pad to enter password?


are you talking about how it shows the letters with numbers like .01, ABC2, DEF3, GHI4, n etc etc.. its like texting on a phone. lets say you are trying to use dogs as the password.. scroll over to the set of letters that has "DEF3" and press the x button on your psp the input screen will show u the letter "d" if u press the x button again it'll show the next letter which will be "e" and so on. so go back to the letter d by pressing x few times. next go to the set of letters MNO6 and press the x button to scroll to "o". notice when u move from one set of letters to the next it'll go to the next space in the series of the word. and now finally to the set of letters GHI4 and press x and u should get the word "dog" in your input display. to input a space hit the triangle button.. to go back hit the square button. hope this helps

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.

G1 phone menu button will not work!


I had this issue and I thought it was dirt or something underneath the button. I took the phone apart and found the problem. Turns out it was dust or built up dried condensation on the motherboard where the ribbon cable that connects the buttons. Look for the youtube video on how to take apart the phone and it's the connection on the bottom of the phone to the right. and just use some alcohol and q-tips to clean the connections.

G1 isnt deleting text messages


This problem had been bugging me for over a month now so I decided to just try and wait it out. First I deleted all the threads individually that the phone would allow me to so that just left me with 3 big threads, one that had 1300 messages and 2 that had about 650 each. I went into each thread and hit delete and when the "force close or wait" message popped up I hit "wait". Then it came up again about 5 minutes later so I hit "wait" again. I kept hitting "wait" each time and the thread eventually deleted. The ones with 650 took about 10 minutes of waiting to finally get deleted, the one with 1300 took about 20 mins but eventually they were all gone and now my phone is running much more smoothly. So just wait it out. Its annoying but worth it in the end.

1. completely turn of phone unplug charger.
2. take and put battery back in phone and plug charger.
3. hold hit camera button and power buton. phone will come on if the update was washed it will come straight on. if not you will see the blue LED dont worry yet. just keep holding for 15 sec.
4. while phone blue LED is still on hit and hold (drum Role) menu and track ball for 15 sec.
5. now unplug charger and take out battery. wait 10 sec
6. now put battery back in and leave charger off. and turn on. unless you was in middle of update and hardware failed this WILL bring your G1 back up and running.



hope this helps everyone . MIll$tronics signing out.

G1 charge light is not on but the phone is charging


Had a similar problem on my HTC (same maker of the g1) touch diamond, the charge light/indicator would stay on even after i took the cable out.

It could be just lag. Try doing a soft reset, where ever the reset button is on the G1 (Inside the back case?) If that doesn't help do a hard reset which deletes all data/settings (other than your carriers settings, your phone will still work), you would have to look in your manual, as I dont have a G1.

Text messaging


hit # to toggle through the different modes... however, if you get used to using the 'autosuggest', it'll make things faster, and as you use it, it'll start to learn what words you use more often. just hit the key for whatever letter you want, and then you can cycle through suggestions, probably with up and down on the dpad, or take the suggested word with right.  you don't hit multiple buttons to get the letter you want, you let it guess for you.  so, to get 'hello', you press 43556, instead of 4433555555666.
