i just got my bronze or brown (not to bed for being brown) g1 in yesterday the phone is not that bad granted the design isnt vary good good but it gets the job done and as for the accelometer there doesnt seem to be one as of right now i havent played with it long enough just yet to figure it out the key pad does light up but is vary dim but over all the phone is not that bad i use to have the iphone unlocked and used with tmobile and i have to say i kinda like the g1 better because it has a keyboard and it is 3g the battery live in the g1 is not good and a car charger or solar charger is a must
I got my G1 yesterday and its amazing. Keyboard is kindof low and embedded so it can get difficult to use. There are shortcuts on the phone that allow you to move threw it faster. So that comes in handy. The phone comes with awesome ringtones and wallpapers so no boring regular stuff like the "you know who" phone. Finding the video player was a little adventure I must say. I had to download an extra video player to find the original one that comes with the phone. The touch screen is responsive for a data device, the __phone uses a different touch screen but this one still gets the job done right.
Battery life!!!!! Extreme phone users, the battery life is not that great. You are looking at maybe one to two charges a day!! So carry an extra charger around! Car chargers are a must!
Wifi and 3G make this phone SPEEDY! Its amazing how fast it CAN move.
Overall. Great phone, small minor details that could be worked on but GREAT JOB T-MO, HTC, AND GOOG!

Anonymous, 16 Oct 2008this phone is the ugliest phone i have ever seen!!! UGLYHoly Crap... No way.... this is the ugliest phone you've EVER seen??? Did anyone bother to pass this on to the fine folks at Google/HTC... I mean surely the opinion of some random unimportant person should reflect their business stratergy.... Right??? Right???
Common theme here Windows gets plenty of flak and now google isn't quite what we expected. The real problem is HTC.Stop praising them because if you look at their history it's one balls up after another. TyTN II with no hardware acceleration ,touch pro with poorly adapted hw acceleration,touch diamonds with cheap LCD's the list is endless...HTC suck
jack , 14 Oct 2008Can i put my own songs from my computer or do u have to buy it straight from the phone hey, man. You download from your pc right to the phone's memory or to the 1GB provided memory card. No, you don't have to buy from amazon.
Mike K., 12 Oct 2008well i dont have any specific questions, just generally how you like the phone over all, how e... moreI played with this phone the other for about 45min and I love it. The touchscreen is amazing and highly responsive. The internet just appears just like it does on a laptop or desktop. The design looks a lot better in person. Its really not that bad. The most suprising part about the phone is that it really isn't that thick at all. To have a slide out keyboard that's a first. You can fit in your pocket. As far as colors go. Don't go with the Black. It almost looks like plastic and cheap looking. Youtube looked pixelated. No landscape mode unless you revealed the keyboard. However this can be fixed when updates arrive. Battery life is awful. No sitting at home playing with this, without an ac adapter. A car charger is a must. Overall my time with the phone was a positive experience. I'm sure once I get it home, I'll start to see more. For the moment all can say is go HTC.
the gsm arena specs lists accelerometer...but in all the videos that i have seen, the accelerometer(if it does have it)is not present
C, 11 Oct 2008well ive been using the phone for about 3 days now. If you have any specific question feel fre... moreya.i just wanted to ask one thing that when u hold it does it feel and look good exactly like the iphone;or is it just like a sidekick

C, 14 Oct 2008fun fact: you can transfer your music straight from itunes. the phone converts it for you. Jus... moreWell...yes, you can...but if the songs are locked itunes songs, the phone won't play them. You won't even be able to see them on the phone when browsing music.
I should know...I tried it out on Sunday :^(

Anonymous, 14 Oct 2008Will I be able to use yahoo mail with this?yes you can use yahoo email.. you have 1 gmail account and up to 5 additional emails.
jack, 14 Oct 2008For the google map do you need internet access or is it built in so u can see the streets and ... moreyou need the data package on your phone to use the google maps feature. And to my knowledge htc told me that the phone will not work without the g1 data add-on, but i have the blackberry bis add-on on my account and it works just fine.
