"It came time to part with my review unit of the G1 (Thanks T-Mobile!) and send the phone back to its rightful owner. But what about all the personal info on the phone? The apps, texts, e-mails, AIMs and all that jazz? A quick search of AndroidForums.com turned up an easy way of restoring your G1 to factory settings:
if you power off your phone and hold the home (shaped like a house) and the end (red hangup button) for about 20 seconds you get a triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1.
Now all you have to do is pop open that pretty QWERTY keyboard and there are several keyboard shortcuts you can use to accomplish what you want to do:
Home+Back reboot system now - (Soft Reboot)
Alt+L - Toggle log text display - (Toggles between the exclamation and menu options)
Alt+S - apply sdcard:update.zip - (Not brave enough yet)
Alt+W - Wipe data/factory reset - (What I chose, had to re-register, out of the box settings)
thee last option (Alt + W) and restored my borrowed G1 to factory settings. I'm sure the soft reboot could be helpful too, should you run into problems a troubled application may have caused. We didn't try the other 2 options so use at your own risk.
By the way, I couldn't live without a G1 so I made the leap and purcahsed a G1 with a T-Mobile service plan. I'm still a loyal Verizon customer and will simply have to keep both plans... but I NEEDED the G1. So basically, you can expect the application reviews and insight you've gotten at phandroid.com to cotinue since we've got our very own device now!

How to hard reset or factory reset T-Mobile G1 phone


Hard reset or Factory reset will restore the phone back to its factory settings; the way it was when it was first bought or the way it was when it left the factory.
Note that this will erased the entire phone's memory (NOT memory card) and settings to the way it was when it was first bought.

How to hard reset or factory reset T-Mobile G1 phone:

  1. Switch off your G1. *If it won't your phone won't switch off, take out the battery and reinsert it after a few seconds.
  2. Now press the 'Power' key and 'Home' key at the same time and hold it for 20-25 seconds.
  3. Then you will see on your screen a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the middle.
  4. After that, press 'Alt+L' key on the QWERTY keyboard (to clean the phone completely).
  5. Next, press 'Alt+W' key (to factory reset it)
  6. Again, press and hold 'Power' key and 'Back' key at the same time for 20-25 seconds.
  7. The reset is complete.

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.

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.
