My wife has a Google G1 phone from T-Mobile and she couldn’t get it to turn on the other day. It was stuck at a screen with the Android logo on the front and pressing any buttons would not resolve the issue. I decided to remove the battery from the G1 cell phone to make sure it completely rebooted.

Removing the battery was a task in itself. There are a bunch of videos to explain how to do this but even with the video it was hard to remove the case that covers the battery.

T-Mobile Google G1 Battery Removal:

  1. Visit Flash Video:  URL HERE
  2. Click Guides
  3. Click Battery Removal
  4. Watch Video

Again this may be a hard to do even with the video shown above. My recommendation would be that you need to be very careful but try not to get frustrated and break something. I had to be fairly forceful removing the battery cover. Once the cover is off it is simple to remove the battery from the G1.

Removing the battery, waiting about 30 seconds, replacing the battery, and then holding the red hang-up button to turn the phone on resolved the problem.

    I have exactly the same problem, but I’ve tried this solution and it just doesn’t work on my phone. I don’t know what to do!

    Hello Sarah,

    Are you able to remove the battery?

    Yes, I’ve taken it out, waited a minute and replaced it and turned it on, but the same thing keeps happening. Someone told me to do a hard reset; but even that doesn’t work, my phone just says there’s an error and won’t let me reset it.

    Well, I managed to perform the reset in the end; my phone still won’t turn on, though. I can’t understand why there’d still be a problem.

    I think its going to be easier to change cells than keep struggling.
    Ive had a look and net10 is the best one.
    The phones work without the hassel and are much cheaper.
    Imagine 10cents a minute and 5cents a text, that sound like good safety to me.

    Hello Tanya,

    It looks like the net10 phone aren’t even in the same ballpark as something like a G1 running Android. If all you need to do is text and make calls then maybe its worth looking at but if you need data (email, web, etc.) then all of the phones look really limited.

    Thanks.

    i have the same prob with my g1 and i already did the removing and putting the battery back many times but the screen just stuck up with the android logo. pressing buttons doesn’t help. all my contacts are there and i don’t have any back up. what should i do? i even forgot my gmail account:(

    alex Reply:

    Hello divine,

    You are saying that with the battery removed from the device that the screen still has a display on it? Is the device plugged in when you are removing the battery? What does your gmail account have to do with your screen being stuck on the G1?

    Thanks.

    Hello Travis,

    Those phones are getting fairly old. It sounds like yours may have seen better days… might be time to trade it in on a new one.

    Thanks.

    Hello Alan,

    It sounds as if your g1 may no longer work at all. I would suggest upgrading to a new phone since the T-Mobile G1 is fairly outdated and clunky.

    Thanks.
