More G1 news, some phone's shipping…

hot-rod-ups-truck

So unless you are new to the wireless world or have just been living under a rock you know what next Wednesday is. So for those of you who chose not to do the pre-sale we got ourselves a nice little list of some things to be aware of for next Wednesday:

  • Customers waiting in line will be handed out tickets according to desired color for purchase (Bronze/Brown and Black only) These tickets will correspond directly to store inventory.
  • Tickets will contain 5 key features of the device.
  • Maximum of 5 handsets per account.
  • NO phones will be sold without the data add-on.
  • RUMOR only: No phones will be sold at full retail, Activations and Upgrades only.
  • G1 “experts” will be on hand to demo the phone as well as pre-qualify Individuals for purchase.
  • Greeters will be assigned to retail stores to you know greet you.
  • Someone called a “line lead” will be there to entertain customers and keep them happy while waiting. Anything less than balloon animals and I’ll be disappointed.

T-mobile definitely sounds like they have a great understanding of how to handle crowd control and keep customers “happy and entertained” while awaiting their turn. This is of course more than AT&T can say after the recent 3G iPhone launch which ranks among the most disorganized activity this side of 3rd grade dodgeball.

Update: Judging by today’s recent comments here, forum threads here and here some of you are starting to finally get some trade off for your endless barrage of UPS tracking inquiries. That’s right, an undeterminded number of people are able to get an arrival date for their G1. Grown men are now weeping in front of computer screens everywhere. Of course three day shipping means the phone could come as early as Friday and we must reiterate that here at Tmonews we DO NOT encourage the tackling of any UPS employee who is walking around in your neighborhood. We don’t condone that activity, but we’ll take pictures. Kidding!

Sound off if you are able to see tracking info in the comments or head on over to the forums for discussion.

P.S. Picture idea courtesy of Gizmodo who are also reporting G1 units are shipping.

    You use your cell phone number with dashes correct.?

  • Solid

    Does anyone know what number I need to use to track my shipment. I have tried my phone number with the dashes and without. But I am not sure I am on the right page to do the tracking. If someone would post the url to the right tracking page and tell me what number I am supposed to use, I can stop crying and tearing my clothes.

  • MT

    The UPS url: http://www.ups.com/WebTracking/reference?loc=en_US&WT.svl=SubNav

    Tracking Status: “Shipped/Billed on 10/14/2008”
    =)

  • MT

    Also, use your phone number with dashes. Ex: (555-555-5555) and be sure that the date range extends to the end of this month.

  • Goto UPS.com and click on the Tracking tab
    On left click Track by Reference
    Enter 10 digit number including dashes
    (NPA-NXX-XXXX) and if it’s been assigned a tracking number
    you’ll see that and the ETA.

    (Lucky me, mine will arrive tomorrow 11/16)

  • spo

    Go to ups.com click on the tracking tab, track by rerence number and use your ten xxx-xxx-xxxx as refrence! There you go!

  • I hope I get lucky like I did with the Sidekick LX….UPS shipped it to me 2 weeks before the phone was supposed to come out.

  • Chuong

    I checked UPS website and it showed that UPS had received the billing information.

    It should be here by Friday or Monday.

  • Just wondering but I thought they were going to release the white one on the actual release date now has that been changed or moved 2 a later date because the the only reason I didn’t pre-order because I wanted 2 be special with the white one ?

  • Steven I

    It appears that the 25 or 35 data plan will be required when you purchase the phone, but do any T-Mobile employees know if it will be possible to downgrade to the $20 data plan after the phone has been purchased? I have heard rumors of the phone working with the $20 data plan, just seeing if anyone can confirm. Thanks.

  • armytank

    @spo
    Im just pissed because it isnt showing up for me so i asked again just to make sure I was doing it right.

  • colejank

    @steven i dont work for tmobile, but i have heard that it wont work with any other data plan, only the g1 data plan. i dont understand why they are doing that, but apparently apple did the same with the iphone. greedy b@st@ards, lol.

  • sam

    Didn’t show up for me either yet… I might cry :(

  • center rep

    phone will be bricked if it has no data plan restricted to or 911 or 611 mines already in austin tx . G1 come on down south your the next contestant on the price was just right

  • xanaduone

    you might want to check again New York. I live in the boondocks of Maine, and mine shows billed/shipped for 10-14-08!

  • Land Of The Trill

    You will have to get the data plan it could be $25 or $35 until said otherwise although I’m sure most of you know the phone is useless without the plan and they should sell all smartphones and sidekicks like this since without the data service your limited and the phone won’t function properly

  • spo

    If its not popping up on ups.com just means ups hasn’t taken the phone into the system yet.
    I’m hoping to get mine before work tommorow! If not friday is fine, wish I could have got the black one, I am actually getting two, good times.

  • Well sheshe do u have ne news on the white one does ne1 kuz I don’t wanna b the average joe wit the black or bronze ones those r conry yes I said there corny

  • JKB

    Is the white G1 going to be available?

  • T1 Connect

  • center rep

    I got 2 coming too I live like 5 hrs from austin and it said out for delivery at like 8:30am ct ups truck don’t fail me know and get delivery early I will pick up at destro. I already called and they will hold it.

  • David

    @JKB, I’m pretty sure that was addressed in the post itself.

  • Timmydale

    No info on mine and I never got a confirmation text or anything. I will be so mad if the order did not go through and I have to wait forever to get one.

  • Macho

    Where’s the white one !!!!!! I chose not to preorder because the white one was suppose to release on launch date now its not???? Does anyone know anything??? Or even Tmonews!!!

  • BL@Z3

    I want the one white someone plz respond asap b4 I blow t-mobile up

  • SheShe

    @timmy have u called customer service to make sure?

  • Andréa

    I have been checking for days and days and still nothing from ups….I am getting frantic…I dreamed I remodeled my house put solar panels on the roof(free electricity) and had my phone…yeah that sounds like my unconscious wishing for nirvana

  • Andréa

    I heard the white one had paint chipping off problems…I do not remember where I heard that and I do not even know if that is reliable

  • center rep

    were not on oct 22nd calm down I know the white is prob gonna be special edition my wife is waiting for that one.

  • jesse

    are they shipping from GA or TX? mine says shipped/billed on oct 14. ground shipping.
    no other info available right now. if its coming from GA, it will take 5 business days for package to arrive since i live in CA.
    cant wait anymore…

  • justin

    Woo mine was shipped out yesterday, but in live in CA so I don’t I will see it tell Monday :(

  • BL@Z3

    I just got off the phone wit a tmo rep and she said the white one might not b released till the holidays if I knew that I would’ve pre-ordered the shit wtf t-mobile

  • Armytank

    @justin
    Did you order yours on the 23rd???
    After the press conference?

  • Macho

    Tmobile has to explain to us what’s going on with the white one

  • Ordered mine on the 23rd about an hour after they were available for upgrade. And still no shipping info on UPS. This is what i get for 7 years of loyalty.

  • justin

    @Armytank
    Yeah I ordered mine the day of the press conf.

  • Chris

    I have not received any type of confirmation either. I am in the second group waiting for Nov 10.

  • Armytank

    @justin
    That sounds about right. I think the people who ordered them early they are starting to show up on ups. I should see it soon. Hopefully!!!!

  • justin

    @Armytank
    Yeah, will see how long it takes. I’m kind hoping it wont show up tell Monday. I have two books read and two papers to write this weekend. I know if the phone shows up on Friday I will spend way to much time playing with it. haha

  • BL@Z3

    I asked them on the day of the conference was the white one comingout on the launch date they said yes so I didn’t pre-order it now they sayin no so I feel I should b able 2 get one just because I as told the wrong information

  • David

    @Babygirl, please tell you are not seriously bringing “loyalty” into a discussion like this. You are really upset because your tracking number hasn’t posted yet? That’s pretty heavy handed, how about you just keep trying instead of yelling about loyalty.

  • Armytank

    @justin
    I have to work on a big presentation for Monday.
    It must be coincidence(i have no idea how to spell that)that the presentation is going to be on cell phone technology so i hope i get it by then so i can show it off.
    :)

  • Miles

    I somehow got them to ship me two!!! :)

  • Armytank

    On another note that ups truck is pretty bad ass.
    I caint wait to get back on here when i am on the phone!!!!

  • Armytank

    Hopefull that truck comes to my door.

  • dat chyk

    @David – Good answer. I agree. Although I would like to see my shipping status on UPS change from those annoying red letters…I also understand that I am still a week away from my promised by date and I’m not tripping on the fact that I don’t see a shipping status yet. Loyalty has nothing to do with it. It’s about UPS scanning the phones and updating the system at this point. We already see T-Mo has released a great deal of them to UPS…so now its just a waiting game.

    Now, if I haven’t received it by the 22nd…there may be a problem! LOL, my post wouldn’t sound anything like this one (LOL).

  • Chuong

    I don’t think the ordering date matters as far as shipping date is concerned.

    Orders from the farthest states from shipping location are to be shipped first so they could arrive on time.

    I ordered mine on 10/01 and UPS already received the billing information.

  • Armytank

    @chuong
    Were do you live?????

  • dat chyk

    @Armytank – Yea, I want that UPS truck (of course with my phone on it)!

  • Andréa

    @Babygirlzbox yea t-mobile should g-d damn give it’s loyal customers the right to run ups for personal gain, hell they should buy out ups so we can dictate what ups does and when. Heh maybe they should also beat up people who oppress us too, like mcdonalds for forcing americans to get fat, also because I am a loyal customer I need an all expense paid trip to hawaii

  • Armytank

    @dat chyk
    That would be pretty sweet i would take a picture of it then put it as my background on my g1.:)

  • Armytank

    @Andrea
    That would be pretty cool if they ran ups.Then we can all get fat on our g1’s!

  • So Real

    Anybody n the south receive a tracking number yet? I’m in south carolina and no luck yet

  • dat chyk

    @So Real – Nope. I’m in the A…still red letters!

  • sam

    i can only sit here and wait… :(

  • sam

    i’m in texas.. still red letters.. sad

  • G_patrick15

    @So Real

    I’m in atlanta and haven’t received any tracking info yet

  • Solid

    I’m so sad. I ordered mine within minutes of the announcement but because I am not in a 3g area or maybe because my last name starts with “Y”, I still have no tracking number:(

  • So Real

    @ dat chyk appreciate that ma. Ahh dammit. Tmobile give me my damn phone u bastards

  • Chuong

    @Armytank – I live in Southern California

    I think West Coast gets 1st priority.

  • Solid

    Jacksonville, Florida – letters still red.

  • J

    I was told the G1 would work fine with the employee free blackberry plan. You just need the normal $10 a month voice with the free blackberry data.

  • dat chyk

    @So Real – No problem sweetie. Honestly, I just think because we are so close to the distribution center (which is 30 min from me in Forest Park, GA) …that we will be among the last to ship to arrive for the 22nd. They appear to be shipping from the furthest distances to ensure delivery by 10/22.

    I mean, if they shipped mine today I’d have it tomorrow…so that’s why I think we haven’t seen anything yet. But we probably will see a change on UPS by late tonight or in the a.m. We’ll see.

  • Armytank

    @Dat Chyk
    I agree i think i havent seen mine because i live in Ohio so it is like you said starting to ship to the farthest from the center to get them there on time

  • dat chyk

    @Army – I mean, I’m just guessing…but it sounds logical to me.

  • Youkno

    yea!!! i get mine tommorow!!!!! JEA!!

  • Armytank

    The only ones i have heard of seeing the tracking number are people who live in California.

  • laphoneuser

    My tracking number is up. I live in Los Angeles. The UPS site doesn’t yet have the delivery date, but I’m thinking that Friday would be the earliest that I could expect it.

    And for those who have not received any type of confirmation from T-Mobile, you need to get on the phone and find out what the status is. Instead of assigning blame, be proactive instead of reactive. It’s very possible that your order didn’t go through. Remember, the T-mobile website was up and down for those first few days.

  • Armytank

    @laphoneuser
    I already called and confirmed last week.
    @dat Chyk
    There is more evidence of the west coast theory.
    I we might be right

  • dat chyk

    @laphone… There are a few people who really do need to confirm that their order was received if they never received the confirmation text.

    But for those of us who KNOW we ordered…got it confirmed…but are still “seeing red” …we just gotta wait. LOL, unfortunately…that’s all we can do.

  • dat chyk

    @Army – Yea, I think we are on point with our theory…lol.

  • sam

    i know, and it’s killing meee :(

  • kp

    I live in Colorado and I’ve got shipping information. Remember people, all that is on the ups tracking site is “Billing Information Received” This does not mean that UPS has your phone OR that it will be at your house on Friday. Sorry to burst your bubble.

  • mojo fett

    UPS just delivered mine! First site I went to on my mighty, mighty G1 was here! It’s so awesome!

  • dat chyk

    Congrats :(

  • sam

    damnit..

  • colejank

    hey i am pretty new to this chat but i have been reading and keeping up on this site. i just thought i would let you all know that i just talked to a rep and my order has been placed but is on back order and i did my pre-order 5 minutes after the site went up!! i sadly wont get mine till the first week of November! this is not fair!!!

  • kp

    dat chyk and sam I highly doubt mojo fett actually got his unless he’s a tmobile employee. I wouldn’t get too worked up about it

  • sam

    i just want mine so bad!

  • allure life

    so if i ordered the phone now when would i get it because ive been debating if i should get it or not.

  • Armytank

    @colejunk
    SOrry to hear that. Did they say the site was down or did you get the confirmation text also????

  • T1 Connect

    can anyone log int mytmobile yet i still cant wtf is going on here today with tmo

  • Armytank

    @T1
    Icant login either.

  • chris

    Got my tracking number. I’m based in Oregon. Maybe I’ll get it before the weekend? *cross*fingers*

  • joshc08

    I CANT LOGIN!!!!!!

  • Alex

    Since we have already waited 3 weeks, whats 7 more days? Some people need to chill

  • colejank

    @armytank
    no they didnt say anything about the site and i forgot to ask cuz im at work and was trying to hurry the conversation up, lol. but yea i got the confirmation text the day after i ordered it! they said that the amount of people ordering the phone was “over-whelming”. which sucks as an explanation to me, cuz i have been waiting forever for this. like i said this isn’t fair. btw its jank not junk, lol

  • So Real

    @dat chyk
    That theory makes sense.u think ours mite get shipped out b4 friday or is that 2 much 2 ask 4

  • dat chyk

    @T1 – Still can’t get in. I would assume we can’t get in because everyone gets billed and your data plan changes once the phone gets shipped. So I’m assuming they are updating people’s accounts like mad crazy or something. I’m just guessing though…lol.

    @So Real – LOL, I hope it get shipped by Friday. I really believe that we will see some activity like “billing information received” from UPS no later than tomorrow. If that happens…its likely that we could get them on Friday (hope but kinda doubt) since we are so close to the dist. center.

  • GreenEyedBandit tmo rep

    My G1 is arriving on the 10/17 the phone shipped out from commerence,CO…. Don’t know where exactly that is but ill be stylin and profilin this weekend …..

  • tmotech

    I got mine today!! its pretty cool. the only bad part about the phone is the flash player. going to youtube.com on the browser doesn’t work but you can open 4 different pages and navigate through all 4 sites at the same time!!

  • Taylor

    After speaking with Tmo CS, the phones will ship the 20th regardless if you have tracking information, straight from her mouth.

  • tmotech

    I also want to inform you guys that the G1 feature conflicts with any other data feature you had before. this convinces me that some you will have provisioning issues using some of the features in your phone.

  • Kevman420

    You people gotta tell me when you switch posts…HAHAHA
    Aight

    @ dat chyk

    Nothing here but I feel MUCH better after reading this bunk here…

    I think you hit the nail wit da hammer on that easat coast shipping theory…

    Thanks for helping me calm down….

    I am sure mines will show up with a shorter ship time…

    Whew………..

    Damn, I want my G1, man this roller coaster is fun!!!

  • terryjohnson16

    I am feeling that truck design.

  • Kevman420

    That is one badass UPS truck!!!

  • WheresmyG1

    In Maryland…still no info. *sadface*

  • Alex

    You will not be able to view videos on this phone? I thought it was trying to compete with the iPhone?

  • kp

    Alex, There is a dedicated youtube app(similar to the iphone), and there is already a video player available in the android marketplace

  • escentz

    This has to be one of the funniest blogs I’ve read in a while. Hooray for the G1 people. Although I’m not getting one, I’m going for the balloon animals. =P

  • Alex

    nice. i like it.

  • colejank

    @kevman
    lol see your lucky cuz they at least told you that you will get yours by the 22nd. i thought about telling the rep that i would hold her hostage on the phone until i get my phone, but then i realized my lunch break was over, lol.

  • WazzuKirk

    I am getting mine on Monday! Woo hoo!!

    Type: Package
    Status: Billing Information Received
    Scheduled delivery: 10/20/2008
    Shipped to: KIRKLAND, WA, US

  • dat chyk

    @ terry / Kevman – Yea, I am feeling that truck too!

    @Kevman – I will be sure to let you know when we switch next time…LOL. I was wondering what happened to ya.

  • Armytank

    @tmotech
    Do you have any info on the silver light coming to g1???
    I saw it on other sites but i figured you would know a little more than i would.

  • dat chyk

    @Kev – Glad I could help calm you down cause you were loosing it for a minute. :)

  • Wood

    I got UPS info and I am in Portland, Or. I have an itouch already, so I will have the best of both worlds…with G1 being the best of course.

  • tmotech

    im at work right now and as far as I know the white is STILL scheduled to release on the 22. we had a meeting about the phone yesterday and it was very specific so don’t panic yet. employees who didn’t order on tuesday morning will not be able to buy phone until november now. I got lucky.

  • @David I’m actually really not upset over a tracking number. I expected the phone to ship later this week and based on location to the shipping locations. Would it be nice to get the phone earlier? Yes. Being that I actually got back on a contract after not being on one for the past 5 years, I hope this phone makes me as happy, if not happier than my N95. Also, UPS only updates their shipping info once, maybe twice a day so to “keep on trying” would be fruitless effort and a big waste of time.

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman rss tmonews and youll know when they have a new post

  • T1 Connect

    ups systems are updated the minute the packages are scanned now as far as tmobile does it and with bulk packages they all have to be scanned indivially and will appear after a certain time. usually after 8pm est packages start to show up in the ups system but dont worry if it has been scanned it will show up if it hasn’t it wont because the system doesn’t recognize it yet. now as far as your phone number for a reference every single number has to be assigned a tracking number individually so have patience.

  • joshc08

    I call tmobile and they said that the site was down because they are doing a major upgrade. She would not give me the details, i swear though everytime i call it is always a FBI type where they dont want to give you any info. A couple of weeks ago i talked with this girl in the north and she was soooo cool she told me about this site and when the phone was actually going to be launch, tmobile it not FBI come on tell me whats happening!!!! I WANT MY PHONE NOWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!

  • dat chyk

    @Everybody – I just logged into MY Tmo (by going through the http://www.tmobile.com homepage and entering it in the top right).

    I’m in now, about to check it out and see if anything changed!

  • dat chyk

    LOL – Nothing but my new bill! My data plan didn’t change yet :(

  • brian-y

    what dates do i put in to track the phone on ups.com

  • Tmo Android

    I work for Tmobile and the white one will not be available on Oct 22nd. They have not given a date yet for they availability of the white one but if I had to guess maybe on Nov. 10th.

  • dat chyk

    @brian-y – leave in the dates that come up.

  • Kevman420

    @ dat chyk

    Ya think??? HAHAHA LOL…

    @T1 Thanks man.. gonna add it now… :-)

    I noticed less posts and said hang on let me go to front page… Bingo… Bad ass UPS truck on top… I saw 56 Posts and said oh shit switched up again…

    This is one helluva roller coaster they got us on!!!

    Update on East Coast: I can get into TMO now. No changes though…
    UPS still same…

    I think we gotta wait overnight for another shipment blast…

  • Kevman420

    @ T1

    What did you find out about your order? They shipping yours tonite? Nice…Mine should be there too then as I am next door in Jersey… You in the city right?

  • Armytank

    @kevman
    They are doing the west coast today and hopefully the east coast tom.
    Atleast i think

  • Alex

    What about mid-coast?

  • dat chyk

    @Kevman – T1 is in the Bronx.

  • Ty

    So,for those of us who were extremely disappointed with this phone.

  • iRoc

    Shipped on 10/14
    3 Day Select Service

    So should arrive Friday, if not then Monday.

    Living in Cali. Hope the Sac 3g reaches out to my city.

  • Kevman420

    Been stomping a little in Brooklyn too…(bad habits)

    Now I live in Jersey and am a Family man…

    CRYING LIKE A BABY FOR A NEW G1!!!

  • Kevman420

  • Frank

    Also calling 611 and if the automated voice tells you that its on backorder then speak to a agent to make sure. She told me that I’m still confirmed for the 22nd. and also she said emplyees aren’t elegible to get the phone until JAN 09!!!! YIKES SUCKS TO WORK THERE

  • Kevman420

    Thanks for ordering the T-Mobile G1TM!

    Your T-Mobile G1 will be delivered to your door on October 22. When it arrives, follow the instructions in the quick start guide, and you’ll be surfing, messaging, and talking in minutes. Get ready…your G1TM is coming!
    —-

  • Dj

    I live in Seattle and I have a shipping confirmation. Mine is shipping 3 Day Select.

  • Ty

    I know for a fact that I was not the only one who found the G1 to be a sorry excuse for a phone.

    However I would like to point out that I would LOVE to try out the software. The Android OS looks very promising, and it has a lot of potential.

    The hardware on the other hand..
    What a sad excuse from a decent phone manufacturer like HTC. That phone looks like it was rushed through production. Compared to the other phones they have put out, the G1 looks like a crappy reference model. Not to mention it is missing things as basic as a head phone jack; and they want this to compete with the Iphone?

    Give me a break!

    I am not a Iphone fan boy either as I am sure that some of you are thinking right about now. However, I think that it is common sense that the Iphone does look better then this phone, and to common Iphone users, this phone will not be worth making the switch, despite how awesome the OS is.

  • Sun.NY

    I still Dont have any tracking info Yet.
    I really Dont Mind Because my Wing And MDA I sold on ebay Dont have to be shipped out till then

    If i dont get it on the 22nd i may Hurt some one :-(

  • joshc08

    @Ty

    I understand what you are saying, but looking at something on the internet is not the same as having it in your hand. I think you should just wait and test it outfor yourself. I personally thought the iphone was gonna be really cool then i tested out the texting and it was just pointless to me i need a keyboard. but hey just dont knock it til you have tried it!!

  • Alex

    @BayAreaSean — where did you get that message? I logged onto the tmobile site and dont see it?

  • Dj

    @ Ty

    If you are basing your purchase of a phone fully on the visual appeal, shame on you. And I will give you a break, a tough one however. This phone directly competes with the iPhone like no other phone on the market. The OS of the iPhone was what made it unique, and Google took what Apple did and capitalized on their mistakes. The open source is what gives this phone its beauty, thats what makes this phone unique. If you like the curve, then so be it. Have fun with that. But you have no place commenting in a thread about G1’s.

  • Sun.NY

    Even if the G1 Dissapoints in Some ways
    IT will still be BY FAR Tmobiles BEST phone as of now.

    Trust me i know
    Ive had every sidekick,Mda, Wing,Dash on tmobiles Roster
    And There is No better option Than the G1 Right now
    HI HATERS!

  • Ty

    @joshc08,

    I don’t mean to knock the phone if that is how people are taking it. There was quite a while before the press conference where I was very excited about it.

    I am merely saying that the hardware was disappointing. However if I can, I do plan on trying the phone out. But I don’t think that I would buy one until the next gen comes out, and they correct some of the hardware mistake that were made.

  • Kevman420

    @Ty

    I ain’t gonna let you bring me down..

    No way!!!

    Ain’t even in my hand yet….

    I ain’t comparing it to a $900.oo Touch.

    G1 is PERFECT FOR NOW!!!

    IT HAS TO BE RUGGED AS YOU WILL BE CARRYING IT EVERYWHERE!!!

    Not Stored in some felt lined Apple ridden case…

    GET OUT NOW!!! GET OUT!!!

    YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!! THIS THING IS RIGHT IN TIME WITH THINGS!!!

    Keep your perfumed up phone with a million fingerprints on it!!!

  • Kevman420

    @Ty

    What happened you coudn’t get one?

    Lets at least get it in our hands before we bash it!!

    I might agree with you this time next week.. But I’m gonna at least wait to see…

  • Kevman420

    That son of a bitch gotta get my blood pressure up.

    What the hell is wrong with that dude?

    Get your stinking crackberry laden apple lovin ass outta here

    A bunch of freaking devices named after FRUIT!!!

    GIVE ME MY G1 I WILL PROUDLY FLAUNT IT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ty

    @Kevman420,

    To be clear, I do NOT own a Iphone, and I do not plan on every owning one. I do not like the digital keypad at all. I could not stand typing on it.

    I could have ordered one, but I chose not to. I want to see what other people think before I get one. If EVER at all.

    As I said earlier, this is not a bashing to the entire phone. It is not even a bashing at all. I am simply saying that HTC could have made a much better looking, useful, more competitive phone then they did. Rushing phones through design and manufacturing is not a good way to sell phones.

    Now before someone argues that they sold several million in the pre-sale already, I know that. I have been watching Tmo News as of late to see when the new Blackberries, besides the Flip, are coming out. But there are a limited number of people who have actually gotten to hold one, or use it. So we have few opinions to go on as far as whether it is a good phone or not.

  • Alex

    Kevman — get a grip. its a phone.

  • Solid

    I keep checking UPS only to continue to see “>>> UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Verify your information and try again. ” This is more depressing than finding out Pam has Hep C.

  • Solid

    @Alex, it is way more than a phone. As evidence by the fact that it got 140+ posts. That is whole point.

  • Kevman420

    @ alex

    What happened Apple get wind of TMO success???

    Blackberry find out the CURVE is just another Crackberry…???

  • kp

    People need to chill. And Ty, I understand what you’re saying but keep in mind that your opinion is uneducated. You haven’t even touched the phone, and therefore have NO idea about it.

    Let me address this quote
    “I am simply saying that HTC could have made a much better looking, useful, more competitive phone then they did. ”

    Much better looking. Are you looking for an accessory to go with you pants and shoes? or a phone running an OS that could potentially change the phone market.

    Useful. How is the phone not useful? Because it doesn’t have a headphone jack?? Yes, that’s annoying, but I bought a phone, not a replacement for my iPod.

    Competitive. Keep in mind, this phone has created more buzz than any other phone since the iPhone, AND I think the competitiveness has been addressed by the success of the pre-sale.

    I respect your decision to wait until you hear feedback from people who have used it but I think you’re going too negative without the proper perspective or knowledge.

  • TomCruise

    @Ty, the hardware may not be an actual eye candy but where can you find a decent 3G phone which can run multiple apps, has a keyboard, does copy/paste, has mms etc for 179.99 on a 2 yr contract?

    i remember buying MDA and that cost me like $350-$400, something like that. sure htc touch, pro, HD, omnia etc may be cool to look at but will they be available for anything less than $299 on a 2 yr contract?

    the only reason i am interested in G1 is the features and price point, though i’ll wait for a month or 2 to see what others experience and what more apps are available to download and then buy it.

    however bad i may want any of the other glossy shiny phones, i’m not interested in spending $300+.

  • Kevman420

    @ alex
    I ain’t gonna let you bring me down either…

    Its NOT just a phone to me…

    PERIOD!!!

  • Alex

    Kevman — what the hell are you talking about?

    Your posts are becoming more and more delusional.

    If you arent careful you are going to become just like one of those Apple fanboys we have all grown to hate.

  • Jake

    Talked to a rep and mine’s on backorder to arrive in TX. Couldn’t get a delivery confirmation but mine may not arrive until Nov. 10th :(

  • Ty

    @ kp,

    As far as knowledge about the phone itself goes, I know the same as everyone else does. I have done more then my fair share of research on this phone. Sure, I have not played with the phone or held it. But I have however looked up every detail just as every other person who has pre-ordered one, or who is curious about it has. So I am pretty sure that I do have more then “NO” idea about this phone.

    Secondly, who in their right mind wants to walk around with an ugly phone? Honestly, it may seem a little unimportant, but if I am going to pay that much for a phone, I atleast want it to look good.

    Secondly, the Iphone was meant to put all your electronics in ONE device. Not make it so that you had to carry around an Ipod, and a phone still. So I would think that to compete with the Iphone they could atleast add something as simple as a head phone jack.

    Lastly, I would like to point out that the OS is the ONLY reason that this phone is making a buzz. The hardware does nothing new, and does not bring anything new to the cellular world. Also, as I said earlier I have very pleased with the OS, and wish that I had a phone to try it with, because it looks to be very promising. I am NOT trying to be a negative what so ever. If you are happy with this phone, then I am glad that you have found a device that is going to work for you.

  • Kevman420

    Whatever…

    PEACE!!!

  • Alex

    Jake– they say ALL of Texas is backordered or just yours?

  • kp

    I just don’t understand why some people have been complaining about the “sexiness” of the G1. I happen to think it’s pretty attractive but more importantly, WHO CARES! It’s a phone, not a girlfriend, and not a status symbol, and not a wingman.

    Also, I understand the allure of having ONE device but that isn’t a selling point for me personally. I’m sure that would be different if I commuted by train every morning, but the only time I listen to music on my iPod is at the gym and on a plane when I’m traveling. I’ve owned music phones for ~3 years now and have NEVER used the music players, so it’s not a big deal to me.

    thats wat it still says on mine but i talked to a tmo rep and he said that disregard the ‘3 day select’ and he said ‘it could be there 1 day early or 3 days later’….well i dont think UPS is wrong when they type their stuff in so unless anything changes i expect my phone to arrive on the 17th becaue of math – 14 + 3 lol

  • dat chyk

    @kp – I don’t think the phone is “ugly” either. I actually think it looks good. I think that is just a matter of personal opinion. Like you, I have an iPod and I use it basically for flights, gym, etc. If the iPhone was “all-in-one” then WHERE IS THE MMS??? What person today does not want the ability to MMS on a cellphone???

    So, TY …please don’t mention “all-in-one” when the iPhone is missing a common feature like MMS.

    There is NO phone that will completely satisfy everyone! How? Everybody has different tastes.

    Can the G1 just live? LOL, I mean, dang…Kobe is Kobe and Lebron is Lebron…they will NEVER be each other! The iPhone will never be the G1 and vice versa. They both have some unique features that are deemed as important to the particular consumer who made the purchase.

    We will all see what’s up by next week.

  • Alex

    I’m kind of upset that mine won’t be shipped until the 22nd. Did everyone that is getting their shipping details, get the phone the second it came out? I ordered mine the day right after it launched, is this why my phone will be back ordered?

  • USCmed

    nicely said dat chyk! eloquent as always and i am in total agreement. i got the rescheduled thing now too, coming to pasadena on the 21 apparently although it says the phone is just kicking it kentucky. cant they just throw it on a plane and get it here tomorrow????

  • dat chyk

    @USCmed – Thank you.

    Sounds like people are getting a rescheduled message because the phones may have been there a little too early for TMo…hmmm. I hate when the package sits idle somewhere for days waiting on the delivery date.

  • SheShe

    yay i just called customer care and im getting the bronze/ brown (whatever the not black one) i woulda been a lil sad if it was the black one

  • Kevman420

    You got class…

    lol it still says this for mine meaning that mine should arrive no later then the 17th, still. Now my question to you all is should i be worried that there is a mistake on mine because a bunch of you are saying urs got rescheduled…or should i be ecstatic because im getting it on the 17th? HELP

  • According to my manager, the white G1 won’t be here till next year, and tmobile plans on raising the price of the handset next year as well…Employees got to order the phone on the 13th, but only for one day and it was only the bronze one, i get mine tomorrow.

  • dat chyk

    @SheShe – Are they still sending the black one out and you have to refuse it or did they completely remove it after you ordered the brown/bronze?

  • SheShe

    well at first they put it in notes and then i called to make sure that the brown/bronze was the one that was sent and the girl i spoke to said that the black was canceled and the one that was sent out was the bronze but i might call again just to make sure.. (that girl didnt know n e thing about the phone)
    @rahul mines doesnt say rescheduled

    So. It says shipped/billed on the 14th, and 3 day select, so according to UPS’ website, that means it will be delivered by the end of business of the 3rd day, which would technically be tomorrow. But seeing as it hasn’t updated and said shipped yet, it is making be very nervous…

  • Brittany

    Anyone know why some are 3 day and some are ground?

  • udontknowme

    no philly love yet

  • Laura

    I think the 3 day select are for the ones that are farther away from the shipping center. thats why they are shipping sooner.

    Right?

  • T1 Connect

    people listen ups is ALL GROUND the only time they send packages in the air is express (which is really expensive)or global besides that once your package is in the ups sytem it keeps moving to avoid a backup. ok now say for example your package is to be delivered to your home on the 20th and your package gets to the local sort facility that delivers to your house at 7:30 am friday morning , ups may hold your package if the driver decides that he doesn’t want to take it because its not scheduled to be delivered until the 20th. i was told by my ups man that most drivers deliver thier whole load for everything when they get it to avoid backups for the drivers. so there you go. if your package is in the system it is always moving even if it doesn’t update in the system.

  • Laura

    That does not solve my problem..

    you answered your own comment

    just checked my UPS, im out in california with ground shipping stated which was rescheduled earlier today. I was thinking it was gonna kick it in kentucky until later this week but appears T1 connect is correct because it left kentucky at 10 pm eastern time making me think the package is always moving towards its destination. hoping it gets to me by friday.

  • USCmed

  • Amanda

    I’m a T-mo rep and here is what I know as far as Data Plans/ white G1 and presell numbers go. This comes straight from John Birrer himself (customer support VP). He has the White G1 has been using for a month. T-mo puts all phone through rigorous testing before allowing the, to be sold. the white has yet to pass that testing. It will go through one more test before the 22nd to see if it can pass if it does then white will be sold, if not then no white for a while, but it will come and it will cost more. The phone WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT THE G1 DATA PLAN! If you don’t have a plan you cannot even make a call out. This phone works similar to the Sidekicks where it uses a special server for G1s only. Without a plan you can do nothing and this will never change.
    We have not sold anywhere near 1.5 million. We only have 600,000. There have been 81,000 sold so far in the pre-sell which is totally awesome considering it is just available to existing customers and t-mo has not done any marketing except on the website.

    FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVEN’T TRACKED A PACKAGE BY UPS

    Rescheduled Delivery: 10/21/2008 means that the ORIGINAL delivery date was the 22nd and has been rescheduled to the 21st!

    And if the tracking info STILL says:
    Billing Information Received

    That means UPS isn’t in possession of your package yet!

  • dat chyk

    @Kev – Thanks sweetie, I appreciate all the “rootin” I can get at this point. As of right now…still red :(

    @Jessica #66 – I was thinking the same damn thing. Living 30 minutes from the distribution center seems to be biting me in the ass too! (LOL, which wouldn’t be bad if the phone was in the teeth of what’s biting me in the ass…LMAO).

    I’m seriously thinking that they won’t even ship it until Monday or Tuesday cause it would still make it by Wednesday either way. Hold on girl…I think we will be hearing something soon. You keep me posted tho.

    @ Naz :: go to UPS.com, click tracking then click track by reference, then type in your cell phone # (123-456-789) under shipment reference.

  • Kevman420

    I just checked the 611 line for order status and it says backorder still.
    So they have been scanned at TMO but not shipped yet..
    No worries… they will be here by Wednesday…

  • sam

    @dat chyk

    i feel ya. no word for mine either :(

  • dat chyk

    A couple of people from the A are getting info so that is a good sign…but..I’m impatiently waiting for “something” like shipping info received or something. At least that will let me know it is being prepared to get shipped to me.

  • Naz

    My Hypothesis Is They Aint Tellin Me Shit Because Im At The Bottom Of The Map More Than Anyone. Thanks Florida.

  • Timmydale

    YAY I got my tracking information but they are sending me two. Now I have to go through the pain to send one back and wait a month for a credit. Oh and no I did not order two.

  • dat chyk

    @Naz – I thought I saw a couple people from FL with their info received posted. But that doesn’t mean anything cause some people in ATL have info too and I’m in the A and I’m still getting nothing from UPS.

    Man, I feel like driving to Forest Park going through the boxes and looking for mine!!!

  • WuddaCutie

    lol @ dat chyk

    Sometimes think anticipation is greater than the real thing.. no so in this case. My coworkers are wondering why I have that distant crazy look in my eyes.. lol.

  • sam

    yeah, i’ve read that alot of people from TX have theres. even places just an hour away from me have them. but i am not so lucky..

  • dat chyk

    LMAO @ Wudda (with the crazy look). I feel you right now!

  • dat chyk

    @Sam – I really feel your pain right now. It’s a lonely, non-shipping info having moment for me right now!

  • Kevman420

    I know what you mean.. just to know you are in line is kinda a relief. I mean you know you are but its real nice to confirm..
    Hang in there… “Good things come to those who wait!” I am sure its cause you so close to dist. center… They probably gonna send a dude on bicycle and hand deliver it!!!

    Look whos calling the kettle black… I’d be buggin right now if I did’nt get notice yet…

  • Naz

    well I Aint Worrying About The Wait Cause Im Up To New York Till Tuesday To Chill So That Should Burn Time. Anyone Else wanna burn time? LOL j/p

  • Naz

    ok im on the phone with tmobile lets try this method LOL

  • Kevman420

    I’m burnin but it ain’t Time… :-P

  • Naz

    @everyone I Just Called T mobile and they said everyone who ordered on the pre-sale day is Guaranteed To Receive It Between Monday And Wednesday. That Is a Relief To Me At Least. The Reason That So Many People Is Not Getting Their Shipping Information Is, Believe It Or Not, UPS Is Backed Up With The G1 Orders And Its alot Of Information To Update(Tighten Up UPS) But There Is No Worries For People That Pre-ordered. Now For The People That Ordered After You Have A Better Chance Of Getting It November 10th. If I were You Cancel The Order and Go In Store, early, On October 22, 2008.

  • WuddaCutie

    @ dat chyk :: I’m sure it will show up soon.. hang in there! In the meantime.. Forest Park isn’t too far. I’ll meet you there.

  • dat chyk

    LOL @ Wudda – Girl, it will take me 30 minutes. Lemme know where to park!! :D (We can do the group hug with the phones in our hands).

    @Kev – Now look at you coming back at me with the words of encouragement…awe. Wait, we switched roles…I don’t want to be the one tripping out! LOL. Actually, I am really good though…won’t be worried unless I don’t see anything on Monday!

    @Naz – Thanks for the update!

  • Lance Romance

    i’ll just check ups again at 12 and then check tonight… n do that for the next several days in those intervals lol.

(Now, let me refresh UPS again!) :)

    @Naz @dat chyk
    Thats what I’m talkin bout… shit is purple out dis way…freaking purple…

    I looked at youtube clip of G1 on zdnet, in Bronze, looked like it was chipping easy..unless dude just beat the crap out of it already…

    I might be glad if they send me black…

    WHERES MY G1?
    Oh it’s coming…

  • Kevman420

    I wonder if I can add my own mini headphone jack.
    I thought about it and I may want to listen while charging
    Or watch slingbox down the road and charge at the same time…
    My dad used to add shit like that to his electronics..
    Wonder if I can solder one in…
    Anyone think its doable???

  • Kevman420

    Are we going to be able to add video recording through software? I mean can the hardware do it and it just needs software?

    Where is T1 connect when you need him???

  • dat chyk

    @Kev – You don’t have to do that. They have some kind of splitter thingy that will plug into the usb end of the phone and then you can plug in two mini usb ports into it. Don’t know what its called tho. I’m sure someone will tell us soon.

  • dat chyk

    Right, cause he will know about the splitter thingy I am trying to explain.

  • WuddaCutie

    lol @ kevman – I read somewhere that the next wave of G1s will have a headphone adapter included…

  • David

    Has anyone in Oklahoma gotten confirmation that their G1 has shipped?

  • T1 Connect

    @dat chyk yea babes i got a couple of those splitter things two

  • G1chick

    Ok, mine says the same thing “billing information recieved” shipped/billed 10-14-08. But on iship.com, it says shipped only…does that mean mine was shipped on the 14th and it will be here 3 days from that date??? Also, you can get email notification when your package is delivered and who signed it on iship.com .. unfortunately, I would love it if they can tell me when my package is in my area but havent been able to find out if they can do that for us. If anyone has info let me know. I would hate to miss it during my doctors app today…=/’

    Hey everyone! I’m no expert on tracking UPS packages, but doesn’t billing information sent simply mean that a label has been created for it and it is ready to be shipped?

  • sam

    guess what guys i got my tracking ish! :) says it’ll be here tomorrow??? :o doubt it tho..

  • udub

    How many Atliens have gotten their shipping info?? We’ll probably be last to see anything, though, living so close to the f’n hub. I suppose they can afford to ship it later and still have it arrive by the 22nd. The guy I spoke to at customer care told me it’ll most likely ship tomorrow but wasn’t sure. In either case, it just would’ve been cool to get it early.

  • SheShe

    Yes anjoo

  • Kevman420

    Man a Friday delivery would RIGHTOUS!!!

  • WuddaCutie

    So after you see that the billing info has been received.. you have to wait for it to say in transit. I wonder if it takes them one day at a time to get things done. I hope it will be in transit tomorrow.

    *sigh*

    @ Kevman – I know what you mean! To even get it on Monday would be awesome.

  • dat chyk

    Yea because my hopes of playing with the phone over the weekend have already left. Now, I’m just hoping we get some tracking info by tomorrow Wudda.

  • dat chyk

    @Sam – Congrats! I’m glad to hear that you got your tracking info. I know you were a little bummed about it earlier. That’s awesome.

  • WuddaCutie

    @ dat chyk
    Aww.. i’m sorry! *hugs* It will come. I think a lot of people will get thier tracking info tomorrow since it’s getting closer to the deadline.

    Gosh, you really would think the ATL peeps would get them first! ;) (kidding.. please don’t hurt me!)

  • T1 Connect

    people all who received a tracking number your package is going to be in transit by 7pm that is the ups cutoff time 4 everything so no worries also most of you will have ur packages by monday once its in the system it does not stop moving so monday 530 am look at it again and u will see those magic words “OUT FOR DELIVERY” and thats gangsta as its gonna get

  • WuddaCutie

    @T1 – Yay! If what you say is true, then that will be the only Monday I will ever look forward to! Thanx.

  • dat chyk

    LOL.

  • Kevman420

    @ T1
    Yo don’t play wit me now T..
    I’m down wit monday…

    Do you know when it actually gets put on a truck and what time I might be able to intercept it?
    I done it before by calling and telling them I am waiting for important package and can I please meet the driver in an area at certain time. They always say yes, and call me when driver hits downtown by me and I go and meet him and get package sooner…
    But I live 10 mins from main UPS and I wonder when I can go there in the early a.m. and get it before it goes on truck instead of the usual stinking end of day delivery…

    Gonna have to watch this carefully…

  • sam

    oh lord, has this really almost hit 400 comments. how pathetic we are! hahah :)

    Yo all,

    I’m off this site… Sorry gotta do it…
    I posted comment about an Amber Alert and free downloads for amber alert to CELL PHONES and the moderator decided it was not worth posting…
    I did it because there was an amber alert in new jersey for a child just happened and I thought I would let ya’ll know.
    I even apolgised for posting it but they thought it was not good to post.

    Yikes what was the BIG deal.. Maybe someone was in area and could help… TO ME A CHILD IS WORTH ANY POSTING IF IT IS TO HELP!!!

    Anyway I WONT BE BACK so

    PEACE TO YOU ALL!!!

    Hopefully you will see this before they delete it!!!

  • Kevman420

    @Sun.NY
    Your doing it on wrong page also.
    Have to search by reference number using phone number with dashes.

  • S.P.O

    Its a good keypad, and the sms and mms are the pimp. Its just a crazy adjustment from the BB Curve, all compact, to the G1 all crazy and spread out.
    The touch screen makes me a tingly monkey! Doom!

  • Troyboy334

    @S.P.O- Does the keyboard light up good? What about the Track Ball?

    @troyboy
    from what i have seen in video the track ball does not light up
    havent been able to get an answer on keyboard light…

  • GTDiva

    I’m from Alabama too!

    I was able to pull up my tracking info? So ALABAMA is on the Road… Hell Yeah””””

  • Still no Minneapolis love yet. The dreaded red text. I’ll be checking again first thing tomorrow morning. I’m a nerd!

  • S.P.O

    The back light is a green, nice and soft. Its not fair to compare the layout to the BB line up, its just trippy, picked up my wives Pearl, and thought it was strange when I touched the screen it didn’t to anything, and I’ve only had the G1 for like 13 hours. I get number two on the 17th, I wish I could have got the black, but the bronze is pretty nice.
    It has a nice smell, just wait, you will all smell it soon.

  • Troyboy334

    @S.P.O- Does your delivery date say the 17th?

  • S.P.O

    It said the 16th, but UPS had my stupid zip code wrong. I gots one, then didn’t get the other. Which is fine, it gives my wife a day to find out if she wants the second one, by messing with mine, or if we are going to send it back.
    With the 40% employee discount, they were like 80 more then the full presale price. Each. But that’s cool, I get them a week early.

  • Troyboy334

    Ok, did it say the 17th on your UPS or u just know that because u work for t mo??

  • jesse831

    How do I find out wats going on with my order if mine had a ship-out date of 10-14 and its not showing on ups??

  • rahul

    ya im with jesse i have the exact same thing giong on in with mine…btw im in socal

  • jesse831

    Im in norcal and its making me mad cause everytime I order a new phone it gets to me in 2 days.

  • spo

    It said it, was the 16th first, then became the 17th cause ups isn’t the pimp
    But its cool, its been 15 hours and I like it, getting used to the keyboard and the shift key short cuts, its all just learning curve really!

  • Roll Tide

    @spo let me know how the battery life is..

  • T1 Connect

    ok so the south is getting thier billing information but mine remains unchanged im hoping when i wake up in a couple of hours it will be shipped or out for dilevery.

  • Roll Tide

    It will T1.

  • T1 Connect

    dude i wish i wanna take it to work on sunday

  • GSM

    I have been reading this blog for last couple days and finally have decided to post. Am I the only one who thinks SPO is either lying or has form of mental retardation? He talks like an idiot, says PIMP every other word, and says he is married. What an idiot.
    Anyways, I’m in Scottsdale, AZ and pre ordered my G1 as soon as it was available.

    Finally got an update in Virginia, just outside of DC. Billing info rec’d on 10/16. At least it’s in the system so I now know it’s coming. Every upgrade I’ve ever done the phone has arrived one day after shipping with normal ground. Hopefully it will actually ship soon.

  • Jessica

    They said that I couldn’t come pick it up because the warehouse is closed on the weekend…the customer service rep said the soonest I could get the package was Monday, so I said, “Does that mean I’ll get it on Monday?” and she said yes. However, if UPS updates tonight and says it will get delivered on the 22nd instead, she said I could ask them to hold it at the warehouse and I can pick it up Monday. Whew!

  • dat chyk

    @Jessica – (Applauding) Good investigative work Jess! That’s what’s up. I guess me, you, WuddaCutie and udub will be meeting in the parking lot in Forest Park if they aren’t delivered by Monday! LOL.

  • dat chyk

    @Kev – I know right!!!

    mine left louisville, ky and is now in earth city, mo. it’s slowly making it’s way to texas! i can’t wait for monday!

  • WuddaCutie

    Morning all!

    @T1 – Probably. I wouldn’t want them just dropping it on my doorstep anyway, lol… just got off the phone with a UPS rep and she told me one attempt of delivery has to be made before I can pick it up or reroute the delivery. I was hoping they could simply reroute it to my work first thing Monday. :(

    @dat chyk – Yay, you got your tracking info! :)
    … awesome, we got a couple of more people. Lol.

  • Jessica

    Amen. I’m gonna have that thing in my hot little hands Monday morning, one way or the other! I’ll bring us some coffee ;)

  • dat chyk

    @Wudda – I know girl, I am so pumped! You got yours too right? LOL, yea the group hug is starting to look more promising.

    @Jess – Seriously! :D

  • Jessica

    Ok, latest and greatest – we (folks in Atlanta metro) can check UPS Sunday evening, and if it’s showing as arrived at the center (for me, it’s the one off of Pleasantdale Rd – only 15 min. from me!), they can send a message to the center to hold the phone (heh), and I can come pick it up as soon as they open Monday morning before work, so I can play with it at my desk. >:)

  • dat chyk

    @Jess – I love the FBI in you girl! LMAO! That’s a shame we have to act like secret agents trying to plot how to get it the fastest way from UPS!! Interception!!! Hmmm, that sounds like a plan except for the fact that I am not going to want to work and will be somewhere hiding in the office trying to play with the phone! Hmmm, maybe I should start coughing today…not feeling so good right now…ya know? ;)

  • Kevman420

    My place lets me pick it up too.

    Just have to call them…

  • S.P.O

    I have actually ran the battery down twice in like the 15 or so hours I have used it, but I have pretty much not set it down. So excluding sleep, got the phone at 11 fully charged, charged it from 730 to 10, then charged it again from 230 to 5. But from 11 to 730 everyone who didn’t get one around me played with it.
    Pacman is fun, but its better with the track ball.
    The finger painting program is fun. S
    hop savvy is cool, but has very few products as of yet. It had coffee mate, but no prices, and compressed air, which is shockingly expensive.
    I can see my apt on street view.
    This is the fastest phone on edge t-mobile has ever had. You folks that are actually in the 3g markets should have a total blast.
    I turned on the GPS, in my Lazyboy, just to see the error message all the tech blogs say they get, and bam, instant hook up on Google maps. Had me located in like 4 seconds. Maybe that was just a stroke of luck but much smoother then I have read on blogs at large.
    Today I am going to goof around with the WIFI.
    @gsm
    I work for t-mobile, we got to order a amount of phones on Monday, as a employee presale. I speak in an excited manner, due to the fact there are excited peoples on the thread, if you don’t like the info from someone posting with the phone in hand skip my posts, and find out for yourself when you get the phone, okay pimp?
    Oh yeah, you should check again on Monday, yours is the 3 day, so you should see shipping up at some point that afternoon, and depending were you pull from on shipping locations you could actually see it on Tuesday.

  • S.P.O

    @ kevman420
    Even the stuff that is “bad” on the phone isn’t bad, people just expected the phone to be perfect, and its pretty close. I think is mighty fine. A little spit and polish, and some 3rd party aps to make up for the few things that it does lack, like the total punting of an on screen way to type, the phone should be sound as the pound.
    Just a few more days, and you will be an android to.
    Its totally worth the wait.

  • WuddaCutie

    @ dat chyk – Yup, I got mine! Lol @ hiding somewhere in the office. I was thinking the same thing. I feel like a kid. All impatient and fidgety.. can’t sit still. Lol. :P

    @ Jess – You are good! Pleasantdale is 15 minutes from my work. Hmm.. what time do they open?

    @Timmy – Do you mind if I ask where you’re at?

  • dat chyk

    @T1 – They said I can pick it up before they even attempt it as long as I call them when it says “destination scanned” before it says out for delivery. Maybe that’s just here…I don’t know babes but that’s what two UPS reps just told me. She said if it says out for delivery then I will have to wait after the 1st attempt.

    Dang, but they don’t open until 9 a.m.

  • dat chyk

    @Wudda – Ok, just making sure. Yea…I think I am going to be partially invisible here at work on Monday :)

  • WuddaCutie

    @ S.P.O. & Kevman – I really am super excited to finally have my own, too. A lot of people around me keep saying that the G1 won’t be that great and to wait for the next one. Many of them also have iPhones – ha. I normally don’t buy things when they first come out, but the G1 really does look promising. So what, I took a chance. They need to stop hating and let me have my fun.. lol. Those who have been faithful to T-Mo deserves it, esp. since we finally got 3G! :D

  • dat chyk

    Now I’m gettin my scheduled delivery date on 10/20. She said it was coming from Kentucky. The first time I called she really didn’t have much info…but the secons time she had my name, address and delivery date, destination center, etc. I’m just waiting on the scan that its there (dest. ctr). Boy oh boy….if they scan it before 7 p.m. I’m picking it up tonight!

  • dat chyk

    LOL @ Kev. Looks cool tho. I want my G1 too!!!

  • Jessica

    @ dat chyk – oh man, I’m checking my status now!! I have plans to meet a friend for dinner, but they know I’m a dork and will understand if I delay it by an hour or so! lol Thanks for calling about the “attempted delivery” too – I was told the same thing by a rep.

  • dat chyk

    @Jess – No problem. I can’t wait for that destination scan. I am about to tell them that I may be late on Monday now…just in case it doesn’t scan until Sunday!

  • Kevman420

  • dat chyk

    @Kev – I know right.

    @T1 – I can if they do the destination scan before they close at 7 p.m. tonight. If not, I will have to wait until Monday morning. That’s what the UPS chyk told me. (I shouldn’t be able to pick it up prior to the scheduled delivery…I agree with you on that). Let me call UPS once more :)

  • WuddaCutie

    @ dat chyk – That’s awesome that you got more info. Def looks promising for a sooner delivery date. Mine isn’t so lucky yet, but I will keep checking all day.

    Yo I still don’t have my rescheduled delivery date and it was billed on 10/15. But I’m sure I’ll have it by Monday. I was gonna go do the early voting thing but I think playing with my G1 is more important. J/K. Actually if it comes early enough I can entertain the people in the voting lines. I’m gonna be happier than Richard Simmons at a pride parade.

    oh my stomach hurts…

  • WuddaCutie

    Let’s not get into politics here.. it may add another 500 comments. LOL.

  • S.P.O

    @g will, nice, I had a plan that i could just call in if the G1 hadn’t got to me by 1 yesterday. Got it at 11:30.

    And at least one guy I work with actually took yesterday off so he could spend the first night alone with the phone.

  • WuddaCutie

    @Kevman – LOL. I can’t help it. I had to say it. Now I can’t stop laughing… “I’m a pony! I’m a pony!” With his short shorts. LOL. Eww!

    @G1chick – We all feel ya, and I think some of us are past the point of crazy. ;) Have you been tracking yours?

  • dat chyk

    Ok, so here’s my update. The UPS rep told me that if I see the “destination” scan pop up on my tracking before the center closes today at 7p.m. to call UPS and they will send a note to the dest. ctr. requesting/asking if I can pick the package up tonight. I said…”Even though it has a scheduled delivery date of 10/20/08?” She said, “Yes, that doesn’t matter if you are able to pick it up in time before they close.” Wow!

    But honestly, I’m sure my chances are slim to none of seeing the destination scan today unless it happens at 5pm. Now, that would be a good thing!

  • S.P.O

    @T1
    Your post about cheeseburgers made me hungry, but I am stuck waiting till the second G1 shows up.

    Stupid UPS.

  • T1 Connect

    so candle lit dinner for two in his moms basement. did he dress up the g1 or did he just take it straight to the bed.

  • dat chyk

    LMAO @ Richard Simmons!!

  • S.P.O

    I think a nice red wine, and lots of finger pressing.

    That would be my best guess.

  • dat chyk

    LMAO @ T1

  • T1 Connect

    @spo yo the whold cheesberger thing is from menace to society a fein wanted some crack but he didn’t have any money. he said to the dealer i got these cheeseburgers man. im just saying i want my g1 but tmobile dont wanna give it up so i got some cheeseburgers man.

  • WuddaCutie

    @dat chyk – Wow! I’m so excited for ya.. got my finger crossed! :D

    LOL @ T1 – Candlelit dinner. Why not just take it to bed? ;)

  • Jessica

    Schweet. I’m gonna have UPS customer service on speed dial from 5pm to 6:30pm. Otherwise I’ll be there at 9 Monday!

  • Kevman420

    I am glad we are all laughing…
    Now why hasn’t my dang UPS updated?

    @ dat chyk

    If I were you I would tell a small lie… I mean I would call and say , Yes yes I got the scan, can you please double check for me to see if the package is physically there bfore I come down there, I mean the way the system has been, Who knows, Maybie it will be there and the UPS system has not updated. Won’t be a first I am sure…

    Am I really getting desperate or what?

    Wishing it just appears! hahaha

  • Kevman420

  • David

    @T1, this isn’t a dating site. Stay on topic.

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman those reps at ups cant tell u stuff like that if the package isn’t in the system they dont know squat

  • WuddaCutie

    @Kevman – FingerS crossed. Excuse my poor grammer. :)

    (The other finger is really on the speed dial button for UPS!)

  • Kevman420

    @ Wudda Cutie :-P

    OK I’m gonna call 611 and check status that way. Wonder if I’m gonna get same backorder recording..???

  • T1 Connect

    if you have a ups account(which is free)it gives you better and faster info. sign up copy your tracking number and after account creation and sign in, do the whole track and save thing it will update immediately when a scan is made and it gives you little tweaky goodies that you dont see in the regular reference tracking.

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman yes u will and they dont know anything either and yes still says backorder. sorry son one step adhead so you dont have to do the work

  • Kevman420

    Oh well

    Same backorder recording…

  • dat chyk

    Yea, I am glad that we are all laughing today too!

    @Wudda – Girl, you know I am hitting refresh every minute or so.

    @Jess – Keep me posted.

  • dat chyk

    @T1 – Yea, I made a new UPS account just for this one (actually, cause I forgot all my login and password stuff for the other one).

  • Kevman420

    Word filtering getting enabled… We cuss too much!!!

  • David

    Yes you do, as well as go WAY off topic to much.

  • Kevman420

    I like it that way.
    I mean this site IS THE UN-OFFICIAL SITE!!!
    Right???
    OK…

    Having said that… Has anyone gotten Billed yet by TMO?

  • WuddaCutie

    LOL. This is the most fun I have ever had on a blog site.

    @T1 – do you know what the two digit reference #’s in front of my cell # mean?

    Reference Number(s): 55, 555-555-5555
    Service: GROUND
    Special Instructions: SIGNATURE REQUIRED
    Weight: 1.50 Lbs

  • WuddaCutie

    @ dat chyk – Me too! And Jess’s speed dial idea is good too.

    @Kevman – I think you get billed in November.

  • David

    Kevin, being unofficial means we are not affiliated with T-mobile. That’s it.

  • dat chyk

    @Wudda – Maybe its the time. But I’m not sure. Just a guess. Anyone else know? I gotta stick with the refresh instead of the speed dial.

  • G1chick

    I did sign up for an account on the ups website but then it asked me for an account number and account name…I don’t know what it is. I tried the tracking number and my name and that didn’t work either…HELP!!!

  • Kevman420

    @ David
    Hey David just wondering if you guys are going to have maybie a Forum for after the G1 comes out for all kinds of info on all the apps and such?
    Or is the site posting like this better?
    Per article?
    I mean we are tech fans of all kinds, but maybe a Android arena would be good too…
    Since so much stuff is supposed to be coming out we sure are gonna want to chat about it I think. Time will tell…
    I mean Android is going to have lots of customization down the road right?
    I can only imagine the stuff… That’s if google don’t restrict it too much….
    Thanks…
    Most of us are currently going a little off topic cause we are DIEHARD fans waiting for launch!!!
    PEACE!!!

  • Kevman420

    Ok all My real name is Kevin

  • G1chick

    DAMMIT!!! I JUST CHECKED THE UPS STATUS AND IT SAID IN TRANSIT…(I GASPED FOR A MOMENT) THEN SAW RESCHEDULED FOR THE 21ST!!!! I’M PISSED! IM OFF TODAY DAMMIT!!! I WORK ON TUESDAY!!! I’M GONNA CRY NOW….I THOUGHT I WOULD BE USING MY NEW PHONE TODAY…MY OLD PHONE IS CRACKED IN HALF AND ON IT’S DEATH BED!!! 4 MORE DAYS OLD UGLY PHONE…HANG IN THERE…LOL!

  • David

    @Kevin, have you even noticed we have a forum with rampant ongoing discussion on the G1 as we speak? I would prefer you move the conversation over there. http://forums.tmonews.com

    Please move the discussion over to the forums.

  • T1 Connect

    @wuddacutie hold on let me find out

  • dat chyk

    @G1 Chick. Awe, sorry to hear about the reschedule. :( But, at least it will be on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. LOL, my current phone is hanign on by a thread too!

  • WuddaCutie

    I was curious as to what those #’s mean so I called UPS to inquire. She said it was part of the reference # that the shipper gives and doesn’t know what it means.

    Then she told me my package was out for delivery today ! ! ! I can call at 6pm to schedule a pick up. I wouldn’t have known if I didn’t call since UPS.com still says billing info received.

    Not to flood UPS with calls, but maybe everyone should call to make sure they’re getting the most accurate tracking info! You may be surprised! :D

    I am so excited! It will be a G1 opening party real soon!

  • T1 Connect

    well the 12 doen’t mean anything to us its a ups thing. i wonder if these people are doing this to us purpose. i was told at one point that google wont let us get it until the 22nd.

  • dat chyk

    @Wudda – Yes!!! I’m so happy for you girl! (You’ll have to give a review)

    But they didnt say that about mine yet. I’m keeping hope alive though.

  • WuddaCutie

    @T1 – Thanks for looking into it. I was hoping that the number may give us more insight. That would be messed up if they are toying with us like that.

    @G1chick – Aww, it will be ok! Have you called UPS just to be sure? Make sure you speak to a rep, ’cause the recording may be wrong too. Mine was.

  • Lance Romance

    UPS just came to my door. I got super happy, but….. it was something else I had requested a sample of lol. Got my hopes up n ish.

  • WuddaCutie

    @dat chyk – Thanks! But I feel bad to be this excited since you don’t have the same news.. :( My fingers are still crossed for everyone!

    (I will give a review, once I can put it down.. lol)

  • T1 Connect

    i really dont like the way these people keep bashing the g1 these critics keep forgetting that htc makes windows handsets this is thier first droid and i think they did fine(from what ive seen). reading a rss feed on droid community and they compiled all the critics comments in one article and those people are too judgemental. reminding me of an article at redmond pie the other day and they did the same thing to windows 7 a os thats still in beta form. not even rtm. dude from redmond pie was so upset he disacredited all those sites some of which also reviewed the g1. those people should rate these things on a group level instead of an individual level and do a average review case some of them are stuck in favoritism land.

  • WuddaCutie

    I know where you’re coming from, T1.

    I don’t think the G1 should be compared to the iPhone, either. It’s awesome that Google finally put out thier own OS, and that makes it special. I guess it’s just easier for some to be pessimistic than excited that something new has just begun.

  • Lance Romance

    hey guys setup a wireless profile on the UPS website so you can txt your tracking number and get details about your shpment

  • sam

    @ lance

    how do you do that?

  • sam

    jk, i figured it out.
    thanks lance!

  • T1 Connect

    been did that homie m.ups.com just type in the tracking number. u can also setup myups to email you when a packages’ status gets changed. check it out create and account its free

    @wuddacutie people keep forgetting 1.0 here and nothing is perfect not even the jobsphone. also after 30 mins with the jobsphone you get bored.

  • Yaniv

    I specifically asked this same question a few days ago, a number of people commented on how they thought it would be done, I guess T-Mobile understood that it was a necessity. With an open platform comes open territory….. for good …. and for bad. Remember…. we cant have TOTALLY open or we will have TOTAL chaos. I loooooooooooove the idea of getting a refund within 24 hours of purchase. I cant tell ya how many times I bought something just to realize it SUCKED.
    Fortunately Im a developer, so now …. Ill be writing my own apps! WOOT WOOT!
    Now….. if only UPS would update my delivery date…. Miami Beach here and still “Not Available” is showing up. Contacted TMo and they said not to worry, I ordered my phone on the 23rd (launch day) so I am GUARANTEED to have it by Wednesday she said WAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ….. please update me.
