Bought the Dream from a Rogers user and put it on Bell. Love the android OS. Runs very smooth and snapy. Web pages load fast and it has great reception. Put on Cyanogen and it's good to go!
This phone is the best of all phones i have ever had the opportunity to use.I started with Nokia 6300 for 2yrs,i totally fell for it.it got stolen,then i went for Sony Ericsson w900i,mayne didnt like it like i love the 6300 despite its loud sound quality,then i went in for Lg Kc550 which am still hooked to butwith G1 omg its THE BEST so far
Just bought the phone today!
I can't put it down.Android applications are awesome!
Web browsing experience is magical!
Only problem seems to be battery life...
This phone is garbage, hands down. What good is a color screen and a nice little keyboard when the phone has the WORST reception I have ever experienced ... takes often many minutes to load a single page ... and the battery has a very short charge. As well, the phone has a very slow processer, so it either goes into "la-la" land for minutes at a time with just a few apps open, or just crashes completely. The latest firmware upgrade was a nightmare for users ... forcing them to backup everything, and loading the program using a multi-step cryptic process. And don't think this is an iPhone alternative ... it is not !! There is less than 10% of the number ... much less variety ... of apps available to Appple users.
In short, avoid this phone at ALL costs !!
i had this phone for almost 6 months now and just recently i started having problem with freezing. but after a power cycly it will work good for maybe two or three days then its time to power cycle again., other then that the phone is very good.
i would give it 7 out of 10.
if the freezing thing was fixed i would give it 10 out of 10

Compare that to your iPhone where you have to hack it just to change your background. Not to mention no widgets or any sort of desktop. You just get a boring cluttered app list.
zamt, 20 Apr 2010I got the phone when it first came out. 1 year on i still love it.Are you rooted? CyanogenMod takes the G1 to another level and so do the various Hero ROMs.
Please can anyone tell me how i can get to send and receive files with this phone. Or is there any application that I can download from andriod market for this. Please I will be expecting a reply
