Very annoying to find that the phones been telling you it's get full signal, yet when you reboot it you've got 10 answer phone messages and a large number of missed calls.
    a few crashes never stopped the adoption of windows berfore

    She rang me to say "It's been delivered, but I wasn't sure it was a phone so I had to open the box - it's gorgeous though!"

    "W... w.... wa....... wasn't sure it was a phone? What else were we expecting for recorded delivery today dear?!"

    Can't wait - been on the market and already know half the apps I want haha. Don't know what the signal strength is gonna be either. T-Mobile said 4 out of 5 at home, and 5 out of 5 at work.

    Still undecided.

    I may have to go for the N97 for now and see how the marketplace for Android phones develops over the next year or so.

    Ring the sales team - they can change the delivery address (that's what I did).

    Had my G1 for 15 hours now, and it is absolutely amazing - what a device! I'm in love.

    What where the first things you did to it? what apps? Also does it have a 3.5mm jack, I'm sure on the T-Mobile site it said it did and then read in a review that it didn't

    I rang them and the computer said no.... Maybe I should of ask her more agressively instead of just going okay then and hanging up

    no dedicated 3.5 jack it has a miniusb socket but you do get a usb to 3.5 jack converter and head phones.

    Tech_guy are you running a rooted rom or stock.

    Eeek, nothing at the moment because in a moment of madness I've taken it apart to see what they've used inside and I'm now trying to work out from the pictures I took mid-deassemble how to get it back together!

    Nearly done it and in answer to your question - it's using the stock rom atm.

    The apps I have got on are (and this is only after a couple of days):

    ::: beebPlayer (plays videos as if you were on BBC iPlayer site)
    ::: ShopSavvy (Scan a barcode, find out where you can get something cheaper)
    ::: SoccerScores (Shows you up to date football scores - quicker than Sky Sports apparantly)
    ::: Something from last minute that shows you local attractions/restaurants etc on a real time compass, in case I'm stuck for something to do/somehwere to go
    ::: Flixster - watch trailers, read reviews, see whats on at the local cinema
    ::: Last.fm - Listen to music on the go

    And a few games
