FS: HTC G1 unlocked, white

i have an HTC G1 phone, it's unlocked for any major carrier (i can personally vouch for t-mobile and at&t but it should work with sprint and verizon plus others). it's the white one (not brown or black).

i got it over the summer from someone who didn't want it and the deal was good. but i have an iphone and after using both for a while i decided on the iphone. so the G1 is in perfect condition, the factory screen guard is still on (not a screen protector, just the packaging thing). honestly it's a great phone, android is the best mobile OS, every release is getting better, but i prefer the form factor of my iphone. when a decent android _phone_ comes out, i'm going to switch real quick.

if you're looking for an android phone / smart phone without a contract, this is for you.


i'm looking to get $250 shipped, fees included (i.e. you paypal me $250, you get the phone). reasonable offers considered, pics to come this afternoon.

How would this work for Sprint or Verizon?

AT&T and T-Mobile are GSM and Sprint and Verizon are CDMA.

Does the G1 run on both??

yeah I was under the impression this is a GSM phone so you'd need a sim card, which neither verizon nor sprint uses.

that's what was told to me, i know nothing about GSM vs. CDMA. i'll look into it, but until then

THIS PHONE DOES NOT WORK ON VERIZON OR SPRINT.

that's so you can use your phone on a GSM band if you're in an other country. Sprint has that with their Blackberry world phones too.

Can it run the new android smoothly, or is it sluggish?

I have Android 1.5 w/ Rosie (whats on the mytouch or g2 depending on where you live) with no speed issues at ALL. the only catch is you cant slide the keyboard up on the home screen. only annoying if you type a text and hit the back button or home button and it returns to the main screen - otherwise perfect. especially with FB integration if that bothers you.

this phone has android 1.6 donut, running better than ever. sadly the g1's may stop getting updates at some point, maybe 2.0. but they run the 1.x great.

it's really an awesome mobile os, especially how fast they roll things out without the need to wait until the next big sales period.

It's painless to flash this phone to use the cyanogen custom firmware.

I just did it on my own.

Be aware, that there is a difference in the data antenna... and you cannot get 3G on ATT networks, unless you enable roaming and use the T-Mobile data network. Your Mileage May Vary.

+1 and Bump for a seriously awesome phone.

Technically VZW uses a SIM for their "world" phones; They have GSM capable phones. The problem is that they dont really maintain a GSM network in north america, so even if you got your hands on a Verizon SIM card, it wouldnt work well (if at all) in the US since it would be "roaming". I suppose if you had an unlimited international roaming plan, it would work just fine.

Post Pics already... I might just buy it for my girl. I just want to see how flawless(or not) it really is, before considering buying it.

You can use Verizon World phones on at&t/Tmobile.
You can't use at&t/tmobile on Verizon.
