    What helped was to re-check that the simcard was properly inserted! the diagonal slant enables the battery to fall into place. Problem solved. Thanks "sepreece" for your fine answer too!

The G1's back comes off. At the top end of the phone (away from the charger port), with the keyboard open, there's a tab where the back latches to the body. You have to open the keyboard to get to it. With the keyboard open, you can push that little tab outward to release the catch. On mine, the back makes a distinct click at that point and separates from the body along about half its length. To get it off the rest of the way, pry gently and it will come free.

Once the back is off, you can see the battery compartment. The SIM card slot is at the bottom of the battery area; you don't need to take it out to replace the battery. If the battery is in the phone, you can lift the top end of it out of the phone by lifting at the little recess at the top end. To put the battery in, slide it into the battery well with the contacts (three little brass strips) meeting the corresponding contacts at the bottom of the battery well.

Then, you can replace the back by hooking it on at the charger-port end and snapping the upper part of the back onto the body.

Received G1 replacement phone i put my existing SIM card into the replacement and in the notifications bar it says SD card removed, insert new one. the SIM card works fine in my current G1


Sounds like you are replacing the SD card, not the SIM card. The SIM is underneath the battery. It's a small white rectangle missing a corner.

BLACK SCREEN · I TRIED TO RESTART MY PHONE AND NOW THE SCREEN IS ON BUT STAYS BLACK


I feel your pain. My g1 droped, the screen cracked, now 3 weeks later my screen turns black. Not even turning it off or removing the battery for hours changes this. However, i found if you wiggle the screen just right sometimes you can get your screen back... for a little bit.

Sd card is not working


Try cleaning the pins of SC Card with contact cleaner or alcohol if you prefer make sure its dry enough before inserting. If nothing happens try detecting it on PC Desktop with proper Card reader, backup files if you still can then reformat thE SD Card. Reinsert in your HTC G1 if successful reformat it again using your HTC G1 to acquire compatabilty on the device.. hope this help...

Need unlocking code and steps for g1 phone


The only way to get the unlock code is to have T-mobile service for at least 90 days(unless you're lucky). Call the service help line and tell them that you are going over seas and would like the unlock code for your G1. They will need your account info as well as the IMEI number of your phone(this can be found under the battery on the phone). In roughly 24hrs. you will receive an e-mail from HTC with your phone's SPECIFIC code(codes don't work for other G1s).


HOW TO:

1. Turn off the phone and remove battery/SIM

2. Insert other carrier's SIM and replace battery/cover

3. Power up phone and enter unlock code in menu that comes up.

4. Enjoy your unlocked G1
