    First, take off the battery cover and look at the 2 little circles.. what color are they? If they are not white, than they have water damage and I can't help!

You can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

hi viviana escobar you can take the battery out of the phone next take the sim card out. Now put the sim card back into the phone and then the battery this should reboot your network as well as the phone.

Wet G1 Tmobile htc fell in water a while ago


Don't turn it on until it's dry again.
Maybe it could work again.
If not, you'll need to take to a cell phone fix place.

I have a G1 but i forgot my pattern so i reset it ; i went to tmobile to buy a sim card but they told me i cant use prepaid , ive looked up how to unlock a G1 and every website saids i need the code to...


No you dont need to buy an unlock code if you simply forgot your password code, all you must do is do a hard reset on the phone. and yes you can use it prepaid or with whatever plan you want, all you do is insert your tmobile sim card, i have a flex account with tmobile and i just inserted the sim card, You dont have to contact tmobile.

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:

Press Alt+L. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

First try SOFT RESET

4) Put battery and sim card again
5) Turn On the phone
6) Press Menu

3) SLIDE YOUR KEYBOARD TO OPEN IT
4) press ALT + l ( TO SHOW YOU OPTIONS)

Note: When I write the sign + you don't have to press the + sign, it means that you need to press both keys @ the same time.

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.
