Diamond Pro Your A G1 Hater!
For Those Who Have the G1
I don't usually post on Phone Scoop, but I've got a couple of specific questions, and what better place to ask than on Phone Scoop...
So I have had a Blackberry Pearl for 2 years now, I got it when it first came out. Little by little, its gotten 'older' trackball ring is missing, the side bars are chipped, the screen is a teensy bit scratched, etc. and I am also out of my contract.
So, needless to say I am shopping for a new phone. Before the G1 came out I was set on getting a Blackberry Curve, or even waiting till a better Blackberry model would be offered by T-Mobile. Before the G1, I was sure that I would be a Blackberry fan girl forever.
But then the mobile world changed and the G1 was released. 😲 I do ab...
If I were you, coming from a blackberry, I would stick with a blackberry. It sounds l...
There are ups and downs to the G1, the web browser is great, gmail is instant and overall its well put together.
The battery life is the only real downside, heavy use kills it. If you don't adjust some settings it'...
As for the bluetooth its not finished yet and google even ...

1. If you were me, would you buy a Curve (or wait for a couple of months for another TMobile BlackBerry release, if any) or buy a G1?
Adobe Flash Player??
Therefore you'll need to wait for Google to update their browser to support Flash, or for alternate browsers to be released.
Just ordered the white g1 yesterday! I can't wait!!!
how do i

or any email account , like my college email that is supported by google.
AIM on the G1....possible
Techies, please answer my questions!
Also, shouldn't it be pretty easy for a third party to make a video capture application? I can't wait for that.
Hey I have a G1 and I am bummed that the screen doesn't flip when I turn the phone. So, do you think updates will come that will allow that? I want it to flip autmatically when on the internet, viewing pictures, etc
so....why the trackball?
Also, I've read that the touch screen functionality is a little primitive right now, any plans for a more multi-touch interface like the iphone. Hate if you must, but it really works well for zooming and scrolling.
G1 uses AT&T's 3G towers
Verizon started in 2001 with their 3G towers so you pretty much receive a 3G signal almost anywhere.
Since I'm tired of waiting for Certain phones to come out. This got my attention and I'm willing to purchase the phone. (and work on my own apps for the G1).
Some co-workers said that I should get the iPhone, but I said I can use my palm pilot and run apps the same way, 1 at a time.
Remember, Walmart is selling the G1 for $148.88 w/ 2yr agreement.
Played with the G1 today.
I have been making a joke out of this phone for the last couple weeks and thought I would go and validate my opinions that this was one cheap, ugly, poorly designed piece of crapola.
After some play time with it today I must say I am kind of impressed. It is by no means the best made phone I have ever held (a little creaking and plastic feeling) but it was not nearly as bad as I expected. It actually looks better in person than it does on the web or in pictures. It is smaller and slimmer than I was expecting.
I actually found myself...
has anyone tryed setting on email?
i want to put my hotmail email and my school email.
Is G1 a Good Birthday Present?
Apps on Sd card
Playable Web Games
I know they're usually not as fun as built-in apps, but you can play games in the web browser, and some can be pretty fun.
There's like 50 here:
Noob SD question about MicroSD card.
2nd it says Transflash if I buy a 8 GB SDHC from amazon will it work?
Battery life improvements?
I haven't played with one yet, but one thing I'm curious about is the ability to turn off some of the battery gulping features like 3g and gps and have a longer lasting phone. I know where I am most of the time and I can turn on 3g if I need it. Someone was whining in the forum that the edge network on t-mobile sucks. I'm not a t-mobile user atm, is that true or did I accidentally read another one of DiamondPro's threads?
Yes you can turn off things like 3G, GPS, wifi and screen brightness. There is an app called Anycut on the android market that will let you make direct link short cuts to access...

I've been looking around for "g1 future updates" but haven't found much :\
