    you flip, the phone is operating in the movistar network in spain perfectly, and i only need to configure a APN from movistar and connected to google servers without any problem, so the phone works in spain like a charm...

    hope this could help you...

Your out of luck. That phone is using a Google operating system. It requires Google servers to activate it. It could be restricted for US use as well pointing to US Google based servers.

    Thanks for the info. There isn't really a lot of information Google is providing about what the phone can and can't do because there isn't any manuals for them. I'm sure in abiout another six months, everything will be working fine.

    Hope you can change your rating please.

After reset , cannot login to gmail

I guess you have factory reset the phone and it swap out everything.

The G1's much-vaunted first step during the setup is to enter your Google login username and password. Once that happens, the G1 attempts to connect to Google's servers to get your email, contacts, and calendar set up.
Here's the thing, though, if (or when) the G1 cannot connect to the servers, you're done. There is no way to exit out of the Google setup screen, no clear way to reset the phone to bypass it (even in "safe mode"), no way to turn on WiFi.

Connecting to google server


You need to be set up for the G1 data plan through T-Mobile. This is the 24.99 plan for g1 data + 400 texts, or 34.99 for g1 data and unlimited texts. If you are setup through online billing, you can do this through the website by clicking "Account>Add/Change services". If you do not have web billing, you can contact billing by phone.

Note - it can take up to 24 hours to become active, but on mine, it only took 10 minutes.

HTC Dream or G1?

the phone is the HTC Dream. as it was the company HTC Taiwan who manufacture the phone.. the phone is Branded as the T-Mobile G1 because the phone is Unique to the T-Mobile Carrier.
