Haven't gotten enough of the G1?

capture

Somebody at T-mobile loves us. T-mobile has set up and released a slick and surprisingly detailed simulator for all to enjoy. It won’t take the place of the real thing, but it will certainly give you something to play with until your local UPS man shows up 18 days from now. For those who are like me and frankly will never even unwrap the manual this gives you an excellent look at the interface you will soon never let stray far from your hands. Don’t you hate it when people ask to look at your phone?

Engadget points out that google maps isn’t functional which obviously means no GPS or street view, but its definitely more detailed than the developers emulator.

Enjoy! Find it here: T-mobile G1 emulator

  • incrediboi

  • G1 Fanatic

    Maps on the Emulator work now

  • SheShe

    @Mark i didnt mean it was getting shipped tomorrow, i was just saying that its saying backorder because we preordered it and the one i ordered on the 30th said it will be shipped today but instead it will go on backorder like the other one and it did

  • Mark

    oh my bad sheshe.. i just want it to come early really bad

  • SheShe

    dont we all ;)

  • T1 Connect

    this is the second time im hearing that the orders will start shipping on the week of the 13th im really starting to believe it now

  • SheShe

    That would be good but i’ll believe it when i see it :D

  • scoop34

    I pre-ordered my G1 the day of the pressconference. When I go to my tmobile.com now, up in the corner where it normally shows my Dash its not showing anything, just my name…there is no phone there. When I click on shop > accessories it comes up “No accessories available-Black G1″. When I click on support it takes me to the G1 support page. Is it doing this for anyone else?

  • T1 Connect

    @sheshe i really hope so i cant freakin wait i check ups everynight

    @scoop34 that phone only appears when the system recognizes what kind of phone you have. you can change the phone but it will just change back once you log out. sometimes they have errors like any other computer system but it usually fixes itself. what kind phone do you have. is it a tmobile usa branded phone.

  • T1 Connect

    @she she going nuts like squirrel food.

  • scoop34

    @T1 Connect Maybe it is just a glitch somewhere, I’m using the Dash. When I logged out and logged back in a couple minutes later, it was still the same way.

  • rolltide

    T1 what does it say when u check ups?

  • T1 Connect

    so you gotta add it yourself click where the phone should be and then choose your phone

  • T1 Connect

    @rolltide same disappointing news we all get. this is making me hate ups but ill praise them again when the phone comes. lol.

  • rolltide

    LoL okay. I will check the week of 13th.

  • USCmed

    if the week of the 13th is true, how awesome would that be? on a side note, i noticed gmaps does a live traffic feed now so do we know the possibility of a gps app for the G1 that could use this function to give us the best route based on current traffic conditions? this would be awesome for any metropolis dwellers like me in LA.

  • rolltide

    THIS THE BEST PHONE EVER!!!!!!!!!!

  • T1 Connect

    @ yo i was reading this article and dude still gives the g1 props but he was so ignorant i felt like stomping a mud hole in his ass.

    This emulator is awful. T-Mobile should take it down.

  • New2U

    Just got off the phone with a customer service rep. She said they were discussing a list of dates for the G1 to be shipped. Guaranteed on the 22 but that those who ordered first may start recieving them as early as the 15th. Best way to find out is to watch your account and see when the G1 data plan gets posted to it. That means your phone shipped as they start partitioning your account on ship date. UPS.com is horrible because it can take a day or more for the reference number to work in the system

  • joshc08

    I just got off the phone with tmobile and asked if my order was placed since i never got the damn text message for the upgrade. I asked them if the brown g1 keyboard would be brown or silver because i saw two youtube videos where they demo the “bronze” and it had a brown keyboard. It will be silver.
    I also asked when the shipping date would be and she told me. Since I purchased my phone on the 26 of september. I should recieve it on or before the 22nd of October.
    The white one is not even officially out. Customer service rep told me that they do not have an official date and that it is not even on the calander or in upcoming events.
    I also asked about text messaging, if you have a family text plan, they will not take that service off, but I wonder if there will be a loop hole with the 19.99 data service for smart phones maybe that could work since i already have text but i didnt ask.
    also asked if i were to add a line on the 22nd that if i could switch the phone to another line and she said yes since it is just like a regular phone that as long as you have the data plan it will work. Also if you dont have the data plan the phone will be useless you can only emergency call.

    I work for Asurion and I’ve had 3 claims today that were for the G1. When they told me that they were claiming it I was shocked and replied, “Ummm those dont come out till the 22nd”. Low and behold, I check there acct through streamline, two have been using the phone since 09/28 and the other person since 10/05. The one that received his on the 5th said is was delivered to him via UPS. Don’t know if he was lying or not but he definitely had the phone.

  • sam

    oh G1 i can’t wait!!!!! :D

  • Kevman420

    I told you keyboard is silver. I put in a call to have mine exchanged from black to bronze. They noted my account but couldnt make any promises. Black wit silver keyboard would KICK ASS!!! And I damn sure will be checking fo the week of 15th… Thats next week ya boi!!! Funny how endgaget bloggers is bashing the shit out of dis phone… THEY SUCK!!!

  • T1 Connect

    they are! one thing i dont understand about these critical pissheads is how are you going to judge something you’ve never touched, seen or used. i saw a article on pc magazine this guy was comparing the g1(1.0 by the way) to iphone 3g(2.0) whats there to complain about. android 1.0 is holding its own against osx 2.0 keep in mind they’ve had thier chance to revamp the phone but did they do it. no. android 1.0 and the g1 is first gen and it scares the shit out of the iphone and any damn things that comes around, and like i said “THE DAMN PHONE ISN’T EVEN OUT YET”.

  • mark

    @joshc
    I’ve talked to three reps on the phone and two people at the store face to face. They all said once you get the phone, you can delete the data plan but you won’t have Internet or the “full uses of the phone”. All other features on the phone can be used however

  • Kevman420

    I agree… the fact the phone ain’t out yet and they are bashing means 2 things…

    1 – they are in denial the phone will be good for the market

    2 – they need some psychological help because they are so attached to the iphone

    The freaking phone ain’t even out!!!! And further more if something different came out tomorrow I liked I would buy that too… whats with the I only love one device man…. freaking communist thinking… I like all technology if its cool…

  • T1 Connect

    see the problem most people have is no one wants to give respect where its due. sex appeal is one thing but when it comes down to the guts, call me loverboy. or maybe they are attached. all they know is the baics and thats good for them. let them bash it cause i know and you know and we tmonews readers know what is the real deal, and where the real sensible bloggers chill. i dont know maybe the iphone subliminally programs you to hate.

  • will

    I’ve. Called the phone reps and they Also Told Me they Should Be Shiping around The 16th For those Who pre-ordered early. Can’t Wait for my black G1.already have a 16gig mircro sd card and case!

  • T1 Connect

    my wing is missing the window key and the power button doesn’t work. if my phone dies(if) i gotta plug in the charger wait for the charging indicator to come on then press the soft reset button with the stylus and it will power on. i got a space for it between the driveway and the sidewalk right under the car tire. if the g1 ever gets here.

  • Kevman420

    @will Hey dude what kind of case did you get? I kinda like a belt clip style case myself… havent seen anything yet… just third party site selling generic case as G1… you know like universal case…i want something like my blackberry uses with the magnetic shut off… anyone know if this phone has that feature??? I havent read it anywhere…

  • Kevman420

    man im gonna track it and be at the ups building when it gets in.. i aint even waiting for it to get on the truck for delivery!!! i live 5 mins from main ups hub in jersey

  • MMM

    question, are you guys sure BRONZE isnt just the new name for the brown. it looks exactly how the brown one looks. & suddently the brown isn’t on the tmobile website, only black & this BRONZE. just an observation.

    also i posted in a new entry, but about the new myfaves plan does that include NONfamily plans. because im already increasing my data plan from 20 to 35 & NOW an increase in my faves too ?! plus in the chart it showed 200 & 400 minutes, i have 300.

  • Kevman420

    Im selling my blackberry for 25 bucks to a friend… hahaha

  • Will

    @ Kevman

  • Kevman420

    I mean come on.. who wants to take it in the brown only??? :-P

    The Bronze is nice…

    Black should be cool of course,… I wish I knew what color the keyboard backlight was…

  • MMM

  • joshc08

    I use to work for r solutions at sams and i just got it confirmed that they will be carrying the G1 in black for 99.87 for a two year contract. She did not know on what date they would be launching it but she said that she would text me when she got more info!!!!

  • Kevman420

    @ joshc08 I doubt it… The cost is hidden somewhere… IT AIN’T EVEN OUT YET AND WHY WOULD THEY LOWER IT?
