I have a Galaxy Note 4, which is perfectly fine as my primary phone. There are times, however, when it would be handy to have a second phone with a second number for occasional voice, text, and checking GMail or as my "local" handset when overseas. I have an old T-Mobile G1 that has been sitting in a drawer for about 2 years. It's in good shape, but undoubtedly has the original Android OS, default T-Mobile factory settings, and essentially no apps. I do have the unlock code and used it successfully 2 years ago with local SIMS in several Asian countries. I'd appreciate any advice on what are the key steps to bring this as up to date and into as useful a state as possible for use as a backup phone. To be clear, I have no expectation of this performing like a modern smartphone or running a ton of fancy apps -- just voice / text / GMail, either with a pay-as-you-go domestic SIM or a country- or region-specific SIM when I am traveling overseas. Thanks!
