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.

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.

How do i bypass htc g1 gmail login.


You just need to encode the settings of your service provider once.as long you are using it with out any problem in software,you can use any sim you want.but if the phone have been corrupted and need to format or reset.the previous settings that you've made will be erase and again you need to set another network provider settings to activate using gmail log in.

HTC G1 dead, can't power on, factory reset/soft reset not working


Well try to get your hands on either a second G1 phone or a multimeter to rule out a battery issue. If you take a charged battery from another G1 and it still doesn't turn on you will have a logic board issue. With a multimeter you can measure the battery directly, if the phones doesn't turn on if the voltage is over 3.7V, you'll have a logic board issue as well. Within one year T-Mobile should give you a replacement. If you can't get a replacement under warranty there is both an T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and a third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Service, If you try a self-repair make sure you feel comfortable with opening devices that are not meant to be user serviceable.

A htc g1 login problem


The G1 uses your SIM information to connect to GPRS/Edge to register the gmail information. It sounds like you don't have a G1 data plan on your account. The G1 data plans are 24.99 for unlimited data and 400 texts, or 34.99 for unlimited data and texts. I made the mistake of thinking that my regular 19.99 data plan would work, but it would not.

If you have TMO web-billing you can add the feature on by logging into the website and clicking "My Account > Change/Add services" or if you don't have web billing, you can do it over the phone with a billing rep.

It can take up to 24 hours to activate, but it only took me 10 mins.

Also, make sure you are using the correct SIM. I know a lot of people got these phones for xmas and they came with another SIM pre-inserted.

Reset G1


Hi, I had that problem. I first verified that my TMobile internet was activated on my account and on my SIM card by putting the card in another phone and connecting to the 'net on it. Then I found the APN setting on the G1 and I changed the APN at the heading "T-Mobile US" from the new 3G APN "epc.tmobile.com" to the older APN "internet2.voicestream.com". The APNs can be accessed on your still-locked phone by pushing the "Menu" button at the sign-in screen. Scroll down to "T-Mobile US", select it and change "epc.tmobile.com" to "internet2.voicestream.com", exit by pushing the left-arrow button a few times, then re-enter your GMail info. If the "Edge" icon has appeared in the menu bar area, then you're golden!

PHONE IS LOCKED


you need to factory reset your phone. this website shows you what to do without having to access anything on your phone - the first step is shutting it off. follow these steps and your phone will turn on, the only drawback is it will be like its new, and you'll have to re-download all the apps and stuff. it also has you sign up for gmail, and i suggest that you create a gmail address and write it down so it doesnt happen again :)
