San Francisco customers are some kind of lucky today!

img000531

Attention attention San Francisco residents who have not pre-ordered the G1, we have news for you! Sadly the news is only good if you live in that in the San Fran area as T-mobile has chosen the San Francisco store at 3rd and Market St to start selling G1’s a day early. You read that right, at 6pm local time (6pm PDT) you will be able able to purchase the G1 and be the envy of all your friends. We imagine that they have limited inventory and high demand so go early and go with a friend, the buddy system works better for bathroom breaks!

If you aren’t in San Francisco or have already received your pre-ordered phone, don’t worry because your wait only extends one more day. In the meantime, head over to the forums and try not to be jealous of everyone already showing their phones off.

    That’s sweet they should have chose two stores though,maybe the other being in New York or Chicago

  • Juan

    To be completely honest, f*ck this.

  • Juan

    But as always, appreciation to TmoNews for bringing me the latest news, good, bad and unfair! ;)

  • LipGloss666

    Haha that store is a block and a half from my job. My G1 is already on out for delivery status. Yay!

    Hey does anyone know where pacman is?
    San fran gonna be happy today!!!
    G1 ROCKS!!!

  • youngmiss156

    @Kevman420 maybe they will add it back to the market tomorrow since people are receiving their phones early.

    Mine is currently out for delivery as well…

  • WheresMyG1

    Not fair…although my G1 is out for delivery. This sucks…if they didn’t pre-order & stalk, have a fatal attraction for, or sleep with someone from UPS like the rest of us, they shouldn’t have it today. Wait like everyone else.

  • Alex

    Kevman— you have asked the same question probably around 123049210349783204729 times. CHILL OUT. Also, NO people dont know where comp@ss application is either. Jeez.

  • Kevman420

    @alex

    Those of you lucky folks who have the g1 already give us TMo people some feedback weather is bad or good don’t matter

  • T1 Connect

    im not feeling the memory management on this phone

  • Macho

    What’s wrong with it T1?

  • Juan

    I’m interested in hearing about that particular concern T1…i’ll search the forums and see if you’ve said anything. If not, please let us know here!

  • unknown

    The phone is great. I’ve had it for a week now and it does everything I needed. Given that this phone doesn’t do everything you think. T1 is right. You can’t access the memory card files directly. You either view pics or exit pics program and start videos program etc. The delay of pic taking is like 3 to 4 seconds. When you end a call, the red button will most likely also lock the phone unintentionally. I still think this is the best phone I’ve ever had but getting used to the hardware and os takes a little bit of time. Everything is so new and it can take some getting used to. There are a lot of really cool features on this phone and as soon as I get my employee discounts again in 2 months I’m buying me the white one and I’m giving this one to my wife (I’m typing this message on my tanned g1).

  • T1 Connect

    well the phone has a 8gig card in it and comes 71mb of free storage left after os install. i installed a couple of apps from the marketplace and noticed the memory went down to 45mb’s so i said to myself let me change the save location and thats not even an option so once again we’ve been dooped. called tmo about this ive been told the same thing from 3 different departments you cant change your storage location. that really pissed me off.

  • T1 Connect

    i mean if were gonna have a bunch of apps shouldn’t there be more space to install them.

  • USCmed

    Hey, everyone. As I patiently watch the street for the mere sound of a UPS truck coming, I was wondering if any of you who had the G1 needed to charge it first before using it or if the battery came “precharged”. Gracias.

  • unknown

    @t1 there is a program on the wing that allows you to use the memory card as the phones default ram storage. I wouldn’t be suprised if there was a program released soon that allows us to save the programs on the memory card and allow for more memory management

  • mia

    I just received mine….i am soo excited

  • T1 Connect

    @unknown i know but i wanted it like right now im doing a lot of cutomizing and emulating over here and i need more space.

  • Macho

    So far it looks like the g1 itsnt living up to the hype I’m still geting mine i just hope they fix that issue with the memory

  • My tzones shut off today, w/o warning. You know, the 6 or 7 dollar intraweb that we have all flashed our phones to run Opera Mini on?

    What is truly sad is that I am actually concerned about the success of my day with a “Packet Data Authorization Failed” staring at me out and about.

    I think I need to jack out for a while…

  • Tmo Android

    Guys give the phone a week or so. Its not even out yet so most developers haven’t been able to test anything yet. Google just released the source code for Android. Soon you will see custom cooked roms and the ability to store everything to the memory card.

    Be patient guys.

  • I received the phone from UPS yesterday, and I have to agree with “unknown.” It takes some getting used to. I put a longer explanation (and very informal) here:

    http://t.kevinluddy.com/post/55635468/tmonews-blog-archive-san-francisco

    Basically, depending on what you want in life, its the right phone for you. It’s email/PIM stuff falls is not quite blackberry at this point, but better than iphone. it’s UI/experience is better than blackberry, but no where near the iphone. its functionality for the tech saavy is better than blackberry and probably tied with the iphone at this point, but i’m guessing it will easily surpass the “app store” in short time. the back button seems to be a sorta global “go back to the last thing you were doing before you pressed this button,” which is super neat if you just did 4 things in 3 applications, etc.

    overall i’m super impressed, but i should say i wasnt expecting much. my main reason for getting it is that i need something like the iphone but i dont want to stop using tmobile.

  • Kevman420

    @t1
    i said all this yeterday and was told to take my meds by some smart arse.
    i understand having to wait for apps but come on. memory and storge should not have to wait for this. its ridiculous that you cannot store to card. also not file management takes place only when hooked to pc. unless i cant find it. deleting mail from deleted folder is a one at a time process. this should not be. why cant i empty deleted folder all at once? or can i? the memory card issue is sad. egads!!!

  • Macho

    @ T1 are you emulating video games? If so you have to show a dude how to do it lol

  • Kevman420

    Does anyone else get 404 error after posting to blog from g1?

  • T1 Connect

    @macho na i wouldn’t say its a letdown its off the meat rack tho. i like the way the phone moves its nice sleek and not as bulky as people say it is. interface is sweet, works pretty smooth and i didn’t even take off the front plastic yet. its a bit improvement from windows mobile 6.1. battery is very good for all the tasks it handles. and the os i awesome itself. the only issue i have with this phone is the storage location. besides that i think tmobile made a good investment for software 1.0 and htc did a marvelous job with a new design in mobile phones(dont let the images on the pc fool you on size)overall this phone has a lot of potential and is going places with a software polishing.

  • Kevman420

    Can we all agree we like the phone but still have conversation about issues without anyone thinking we are hating this product? I know I am here cause its a great way fore us to collarberate on these areas of concern without being insulted.

  • T1 Connect

    @macho me and my boys are trying to work out a thing but a lot of sites like androidguys and android community(no disrespect tmonews your the best)have software you can download.

  • Kevman420

    I mean I have not put it down since I got it. I absolutely love it but would like to be able to blog improvements and such.

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman420 yea but i understand why david wants us to use the forums for stuff like that its easier to post liks and stuff about that. and by the way do you love it. im absolutely loving it like a 10yr old at christmas right now. cant wait to see my boys lata and show them a real 3g connection on tmobiles network along with slimmer and smoother phone. yea ambience has stlye(ambience=my g1).

  • David

    @T1, not to worry…we don’t have any interest in really creating an Android based market/platform as the other two sites you mentioned. This site will continue to focus on T-mobile related news so we’ll try and keep information regarding applications to a minimum though I’m sure we might feature a few once in a while perhaps in partnership with other sites.

  • Kevman420

    @t1
    Thanks buddy I do understand too but I am merely posting like everyone else.

    San francisco can wait till 6 if they want to but philly G1’s are rolling in every half hr. To 45 mins. I got mine at 2:06pm today and my friend got his at 1:22….I’m so glad I pre-ordered and had someone to wait for it, my mom said the packaging is kinda too bulky to leave on a door step discretely! Idk about everyone else but I’d be pissed to come wit my sexy new phone just sitting on the steps looking like a target!

  • dave

    I am the second in line is san francisco. I already used the phone and is great!

  • T1 Connect

    no kev dont take it like that i just saying i thought i would hate the forums but its kinda nice there are a whole bunch of other people over there that dont even come over here. you should come thru it s kinda nice and people would love you over there. i wouldn’t dis one of my tri state area dogs especically in the blog.

    @david it would be nice to have a tmonews review section tho. tell us what our favorite blog archive think of our new and upcoming phones review style.

  • TATO

    I still dont have mine but alot of ppl are crying about the same thing u guys have to wait till tomo give the phone time to be out maybe at that time everything will start to work fine come on ppl

  • David

    You want a phone review section? One is already there though I grant you its collecting cob-webs until we put it back into play? You want an Android application review section?

  • D

    I love the G1, i have downloaded a bunch of different apps for it and I still have room for more. i would say it has lived up the hype, i have had it for a week now and its by far the best phone I have had since I have been with T-Mobile

  • T1 Connect

    No not just a android review a everything review like a tell the readers and users what tmonews thinks and pardon me if you guys put one and I missed it but if u do do hit me off with a link

  • G1 future owner

    @T1, RE: post #18=
    am i reading this right?
    the g1 comes with a 8gb mini SD card. yes or no?
    you install the OS to the mini SD card. yes or no?

  • G1 future owner

    oops meant @ T1, RE: post #17

  • Madison

    ]= that isnt fair, isnt fair at all.
    ive been playing the waiting game for a MONTH, & they just get to go by & pick one up. while im staring out the window until 7 oclock to get mine. ]=

    oh, the injustice.

    kidding.
    AS LONG AS ITS HERE BY SEVEN OCLOCK

  • JBLmobileG1

    I can’t wait to get my phone although I won’t be getting it till around November 10th. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t let you save onto an sd card though. It sorta reminds me of the nintendo Wii you can save but not play from an sd card but in this case you can’t even save to it(yet). Can you save your pictures to it atleast? Maybe the whole reason why you can’t store to the card is because of copyright. Maybe once the apps start costing money they don’t want people to trade from one G1 to another. Who knows.

  • T1 Connect

    @g1 future owner no it came with a 1 gig and i bouht a 8 gig

  • T1 Connect

    heres some information for people switching from windows mobile to android. if you have a windows live account(hotmail, msn or live)you will not be able to loging through hotmail directly or throught the email in the phone you must got to mobile.msn.com and login through there.

  • So Real

    In South Carolina and just got g1. This phone is great those still waitin hang in there the phone is worth it

  • TATO

    They are not the only ones in maimi and pembroke mall in florida thy are already selling it here some pics

  • T1 Connect

    also if you’re switching from the wing and the dash your headphones, charger and usb cable will work along with the best part the case. yes the case its a little tight at first but if you dont like the g1 case remember the wing and the dash case can accomadate your g1 and pretty nice and you save a little money on the a new case.

  • Macho

    I can’t wait to get mine I’m from the Bx NY and my 3g coverage is perfect so all i need is the G1 and T1 I’m sure there’s gonna be something on the martket that will allow you to play nintendo games and sega etc…

  • Macho

    @t1 does the g1 case have a belt clip? And also my dude how’s the aim yahoo etc on it?

  • T1 Connect

    @macho im from the bronx too son last stop on the 5 train. you know. i hope they have some emulators save me some trouble. but no the g1 case is a pouch not a belt clip. use the one from the wing or the dash or if not hit up 125 or jerome you know how the street vendors work. this is new york son we can get one for $10 bucks.

  • Jake

    @T1, I believe the charger and usb tips for the Dash are different from the G1. I don’t think they’re compatible. I’ll have to check out the case tho.

  • T1 Connect

    dude last night i charged my phone with the charger from my wing i didn’t even open the g1 charger yet. remember it holds mini usb and that propriety jack from htc. you can basically take any mini usb cable and even charge it in your cable box if you want to. you can do it with the wing and the dash and the shadow. its a htc thing.

  • Im Lucky!!!

    I live in Utah and i received my G1 today from the UPS guy. It is really cool and I have had a great day showin it off!!!

  • Macho

    That’s was up T1 I’m the 6 trane my stop is broke ave kid and do you know if the sidekick case fits the g1? Also have you messed with the aim and shit?

  • stillonSkLX

    help. idont know if im able to get the low price on the G1 or wait it out?

    i got a skLX last october and 1 year has passed but i had a 2year contract renewal. can i get the G1 low priced?

  • Madison

    perfection.

  • jsquared8

    omg!!! My dad works right next to that store! and i still havent preordered. had i checked this earlier, i probably could of got one!! the store is so random, at least it is close to me ;)

  • T1 Connect

    @macho it should its a little longer than the g1 but the width should be ok

  • jeff

    I have loaded every app almost that u can add at this time..no memory prolem at all..people want cars that will go 200 mph…but then have never gone near that fast

  • Kevman420

    this is real bad as i cannot find the stop button to stop music…

    its gone…

    can anyone tell me how to stop the freaking music player

    the stop button is GONE!!!

    no hardware button does it either

    WTF???

  • jeff

    you guys may not like the fact there is no touch keyboard..but the slide out one is excellent…this phone is a masterpiece..it has..trackball..for bb lovers..keyboard for sk and wing lovers and a killer touchscreen and high def large screen. get an unlocked iphone if u want to follow the up and trendy.

  • Kevman420

    @T!

    am i losing it or is there no stop button just pause button on music player?

  • taylor

    Yo son I live in summerville SC and I got my black G1 today! I love it but now all you developers need to make me some apps : ) flash player paaaleease!

  • jeff

  • Kevman420

    wow i am losing it but have excuse

    had dental surgery and been taking pain killers for day and half

  • Kevman420

    @jeff

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman pause the music and hit the back button.

  • jeff

    broser takes getting used to but is amazing…..windowed. as u go to new url…the previously viewed one is reduced automaically and then u can go back to open

  • Will

    ok quick question.
    has anyone been able to sync Hotmail accounts to your G1 yet keeps telling me error >.> and i know for my blackberry i didnt have to pay for hotmail for it to work on my phone. Does anyone know how to set it up or bypass that?

  • Kevman420

    @T1 thanks T
    Hey I got a good one for you all..

    I added my pop 3 account from optonline.net…
    Well whenever I delete mail it shows back up.
    Even if I select the setting to remove from server.

    The E-Mail is very buggy and I think I may have to just use Gmail from now on…

    Anyone having issues with mail client?

  • Jake

    T1, you’re right, dash usb cable and charger works for the G1. Haven’t been able to get hotmail to work though.

  • Macho

    How’s the youtube on it???? Anyone feel free to answer

  • Jake

    Youtube is pretty functional. Some clip audio is lackluster, could be specific clips tho.

  • T1 Connect

    @ will and jake to get your hotmail working it depends on where your email is 1. if your email is with hotmail you must go to hotmail.com on the browser and login there. if you have a windows live or msn account you go to mobile.msn.com and click the hotmail link on the screen and use the login they have there. microsoft passport(the universal login for them)is strictly a web based email system you cannot login thru pop or imap

    @kevman i set up two optonline accounts and my omni360 account on my phone but i didn’t find anything buggy on the phone about them they worked seamless. just make sure your outgoing port is 110 and incomming is 25 uncheck the username part in outgoing setup. and remember outgoing and incoming are the same server address “mail.optonline.net”

  • Kevman420

    @T1 all configuration parameters are correct thanks.
    When I delete from trash,.they come back. Have you try
    Tried deleting and emty trash.
    Let me know if your able to emry trash without mail coming back. Evrything I deleted has come back.
    I have been in forums and read a lot….thanks again. Gonna post it in forum.

  • Kevman420

    I don’t think its pilot error or misconfiguration between g1 and chair.

  • Jake

    T1, makes sense that hotmail would op that way but it would be much easier adding hotmail as an additional account. nothing different from using a desktop, ugh.

  • T1 Connect

    @kevman hit me off wid a link when u do

    @jake not really

  • Macho

    @t1 have you tried the texting on it ? Also how’s the youtube

  • T1 Connect

    gotta get used to texting on it also not good to text with it plugged. the charger wire blocks the position of your hand on the chin

  • gmoney

    im getn used to the texting, just threw 500mb of songs on it thru usb from my dell win xp laptop in like 30 sec. the android just put em in the music player automatic. im mclovin it!! i like the headphones too

  • T1 Connect

    headphone quality is blah on the g1 headphones, but my boy has a headphone adapter that came with a verizon(yes i said verizon) ppc6800. a htc proprietery head phone adapter to 3.5 combination that works pretty good with my zune headphones

  • gmoney

    i guess im just happy cuz im comin from a 2005 razr that i used for 3 yrs and the last time today. r.i.p razr 2005-2008, viva la g1, lol.
