Hi friends I recently bought a 2nd hand example of the G1. The previous owner had uprated. When i turn on my phone, the only thing that appears on the screen is HERO. Can u help me please?
Can anybody tell me where i can find the model number for my G1 please? or tell me the model number???
i am wanting to unlock my G1 and i need the model number and i have lost the box and i am unable to find the model number on the back of the battery help please?
I recently bought a 2nd hand example of the G1 via e.bay. The previous owner had uprated. The O.S. to Android 2.1. This worked but slowed the phone down. It eventually went. Into a reboot loop which rendered the handset useless. I did a Factory reset wiped out the dialler! Eventually I had it reflashed to Android.1 updated now to 1.6. By and large, I am quite impressed with what is now rather an old phone. My other phone is the Nokia N900 and I find it in many ways quite similar to the G1
My criticisms of the phone are the usual ones - battery life and lack of phone memory. It could also do with some more ram! However, if you are looking for a good phone with a physical keyboard, that can handle lots of applications, then the G1 could be the one for you. Currently, you can get used ones for £100-150.
JACK, 23 Jul 2010The phone is amazing, it is like a mini computer!!! G1 is probably the best phone for very low... moreCan u please give me the exact figure of the phone because i used to work for T-mobile but they have all their prices in dollars!!!!!pease reply......

The phone is amazing, it is like a mini computer!!! G1 is probably the best phone for very low price. When you "jailbreak" it.. this phone is unstoppable. ;)
The best handset I've ever had. Definitely. Specs are not so awesome, but I have a minicomputer at hand.
Considering the fact that G1 is the first android phone ever built, i believe that you guys have mistreated the G1.
You should first root your device and change your ROM if you are having problems. Android does not kill apps so use taskiller or other app killers to free up your memory. I have Cynanogen 6 (Android 2.2) Running silk smooth on my G1 with Sygic Mobile Maps and lots n lots of amazing apps and games. I am keeping my G1 till the day it dies on me. And it's been 2 years now, and it survived and still runs like new.
nikki, 29 Jun 2010I've had my g1 for a cple of months and have had nothing but problems!!!!! it shuts itself off... moreall i can say is that i've had this phone for 8 months and i completely love it. android 1,18.104.22.168, cyan 4, cyan5.. this phone has evolved to be the best. no major problems yet.. guess you just havent figured out the potential yet
Weill i've had my g1 since November and i have to say its a pretty good phone. It may force close some apps every once in a while but its nothing major The only thing i really dont like is the screen freezing on me
I've had my gi 6 mts . Great phone !!! Works perfectly . Never have had problems.I luv it!!!!! Smooth as silk. Jim
I've had my g1 for a cple of months and have had nothing but problems!!!!! it shuts itself off deletes on its own and freezes... wouldn't recommend...
I've owned this device since release, It's been through a lot.
Battery life isn't very good, especially after so long. The vibrator rattles a bit now that the phone has loosened up over time, makes an annoying sound. Phone runs decently fast but if you opt to upgrade beyond Android 1.5 then things can get sluggish. The biggest flaw is lack of RAM and internal storage.
Overall the phone is durable and reliable but has many technical limitations. It has some flaws but it's understandable for the first Android phone ever! I'd recommend this phone to the technically inclined: it's the best phone to mess around with, hands down. For the average person I'd say find something a little newer.
the worst htc device with android OS of all time..cant believe hero beats the crap out of it with having the same OS on it ... i have no idea what the heck was htc thinking while making the G1/dream
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2010All of u complaining about battery life of android phones, go to market and install APNdroid. ... moreWould it not be just as easy to just switch to 2G instead of 3G. also if you do not like this app, please de-install with 3G on, read what is mentioned with the app.
