    Apparently I received the only defective G1 :( It worked beautifully for the first 4 days, but today the screen faded out to nothing and never returned...I wasn't even able to receive calls. I called CC and went through what little tech support they had for the phone (ie master reset). They are of course replacing it, but because I have the brown model I'm on the back order list, which means I have no phone (my Curve died 2 days after I got the G1) until November 10th because that is the earliest they could guarantee it to arrive. Am I really the only one this has happened to??

    P.S. Customer service was awesome as always, one of the big reasons I won't leave T-Mobile.

    Wow sorry to hear that Anna. In what area do you live? Are you sure you can't try calling a couple local stores and see if they might replace it for you? In today's world, not having a cell phone is the near equivalent to being Amish!

    I live in Los Angeles County, and none of my local stores carry the phone...of course. The woman on the phone checked to see if there were any available in the area and came up with nothing. Yes I will be feeling very cut off until the new phone comes, I always have it in my pocket from the time I wake up until I go to sleep. She did say that I could go and get a loaner from a retail store, but I don't have a credit card so I'm pretty sure that's not really an option. Oh well, so is life....

    Hello from Long Beach ;) I am also having issues with the phones build quality. Although the screen has not died, i am getting a lot of creeks and things coming off it (like the battery plate).

    That sucks, The only problem I got so far the screen feels a little loose between the keyboard and the screen.
