MP3 ringtones?

there are many reasons why i'm unhappy with both my current carrier and phone. one surprise i don't want again, is getting a phone that DOESN'T allow mp3 ringtones. so, does the g1 have that capability?
i'm sure, being an open platform, even if it doesn't out of the box, someone would have created a app for it, but i've assumed before, and we all know where that gets us...

TMobile will not be getting Cupcake but you will receive an Over the Air (OTA) update (1.1 RC33) to your G1 between February 5 and February 15. It will take care of the following :

The ability to save a picture or file to the memory card from a MMS message by long pressing on the item.
New "Check For Upgrades" feature gives customers the ability to check for system upgrades.
New "Voice Search" feature allows customers to perform a search faster by providing quick access to a Google search box without having to first open an Internet browser and load Google.com
Known Issue Fixes:

Error "Sorry! The application XXX is not responding".
Wi-Fi disconnecting forces...

Navigation on the G1

Hey, all.

I have a question about the navigation available thru google. Does it have the capability to give you turn-by-turn directions with voice? or does it just show you a map like a Thomas Guide would?

Thanks in advance,

P.

Vertical & Horizontal Screens

Is there a way to use this phone in a horizontal position with the keyboard closed?

Is there a way to set it up so that its only in horizontal? im not a big fan of the vertical view.

Just got my G1 and have a question...

Sorry if this is a dumb question. I just got my G1 today. I ditched my Iphone 3g for it(90 bucks a month is nuts for a phone bill) My question is can the G1 play my Itunes songs? Thanks for any answers.

Good Battery Anyone?

I was wondering if I am the only lucky person to have a normal working battery? So far the ones I have sold have not had issues either. I am averaging about 10 - 12hrs of juice. That includes using my phone to demonstrate the G1's features. The only time I really dump a lot of juice is when I demonstrate StreetView. Other then that, I have been charging my phone once a day (at night before bed) and it has been just fine.

I am in the P.A area, anyone else out there get themselves a good amount of juice out of the battery? I think the battery issue may only be a issue with the battery itself. Maybe there was a bad batch? Im reaching, i know, but i dont know what else to think. After all, my whole shipment works fine...so far.

alot of talk

being an iphone 3G user i can admit im kind of spoiled when it comes to phones. when the G1 was first advertised, i thought street view was the coolest thing id ever seen, but with the recent iphone update bringing street view to the ever growing iphone repetoir, the G1 has nothing more to offer thats new. the phone also lacks the "sleekness" that we all expect from the new big thing. yeah, its a great phone, and all the iphone haters now have a comperable alternative, but its no better than apples home run.

p.s. the keybored kind of sucks, but is still there, so i cant complain

1 million G1s sold?

It appears that the G1 running Android has been quite a success!

This phone is a joke big waste of time

If u get this phone prepare yourself for serious buyers remorse.This is a phone full of cant do this cant do that. Hard to use keyboard, slow speeds, lacks many standard features. Even street view is slow. Smart buyers beware. Paranoid
