Just over 30 days after I got my G1 it was stolen at work and I was going through G1 Android withdrawal. I found out I didnt have insurance on the phone and was going to have to pay full price to get another. I decided to go into my local T-Mobile store that I had started service with and talked to one of the reps and she verified there was no insurance on the phone. She called out the manager (Van) and he took a look at my account and was able to find a way to get me another G1 at NO COST to me.
If your in North San Diego and need a phone or help with your T-Mobile account I would suggest stopping into SD Wireless and speaking to Van, or give them a call at:

I just picked up my Android phone and love it so far. I had the choice between the My TOUCH and the g1 with T-Mobile and even though the My Touch has more ram I did not want to be stuck with only the virtual keyboard, so I got the G1 with its slider keyboard.
I am typing this on my G1’s keyboard and don’t think I would be able to on a virtual keyboard with my big fingers,
First thing I noticed is when you first setup your G phone is it asks you to log into your google account or create one, Then it pulls down all your contact info into the phones contact list. It also sets up your gmail account on your home page, But your not stuck with just your gmail account, there is also a mail app that works with your yahoo, hotmail/live, imap/pop3 accounts. Allowing you to assign 5 email accounts.
There seems to be an app for just about anything you want to do. I will get into the apps in more detail later but right now my favorite apps are
DxTop a home page replacement
Nav Launcher launches google maps in navigator mode.
