Question about Cell Phones

Is there another way to master reset my G1, without a screen? Hold the button down for 3 minutes or something? Nothing else is working. I can't even shut it off without removing the battery.

Is it the T-mobile G1?
How to hard reset your phone:

1.) Switch off your G1. If it won't switch off or freezes, take out the battery and put the battery back after a few seconds.

2.) Now press the 'Power' key and 'Home' key at the same time and hold it for 20-30 seconds.

3.) Then you will see on you screen a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the middle.

4.) After that, press Alt+L (to clean the phone completely)
5.) Next, press Alt+W (to factory reset it)
6.) Again, press and hold the 'Power' key and 'Home' key at the same time for 20-30 seconds.

7.) The reset is complete.

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.

Forgot ..gmail acccount info..need to unlock the phone


Is this after forgetting the screen pattern? If you cannot remember the username and password to your G1, there is not a way to recover it at this time. The only way for you to have your phone again is to do a master reset using the hardware buttons. This will delete all of your data on the phone only (SIM card and memory card data will be fine). To do a master reset power the phone off completely. Hold the home key and the power key at the same time while turning it on again. You will see the T-Mobile G1 screen first, but them you will see a screen with a triangle appear. You can let go of the keys and open the keyboard. Press and hold the left ALT key and then press the letter W. Release both the keys and the phone will power off. Then it will power on again and act like you just removed it from the box. Create your new account and write down the username and password this time that way you wont forget it.

Can't get audio on Bearcat 244CLT scanner, or get any of the buttons to operate properly. Can set the clock, but that's it. Volume and Squelch set all the way to right, not even static sound. Nothing on...


You can try a master reset. This will delete any frequencies that are programmed. Here is the way to do a reset...
Turn scanner off. Hold down, 2-9-HOLD (all three keys at once)while turning on the scanner. Keep holding the keys down for about 3 seconds. The word CLEAr should come up on the screen.

You are going to have to ty a hard reset. Don't worry about things being deleted from the phone, as your phone auto syncs with Gmail when you enter your account info again.

To hard reset...turn the phone on while holding home and back. Follow on screen prompt.

If that doesn't work try..

Hold home and power buttons
once phone is on, open keyboard and hold alt first + w

G1 safe mode


Power the device off, while it is off press and hold the Menu button and the Red Power Button at the same time, when the phones boots back up the Safe Mode should be off. If this does not work a Master Reset may be required.
