OK, I got the G1 unlocked, using it with my Claro chip from central America, I configured the apn to the carrier settings, I see the edge simbol on the phone with the arrow pointing up working but not the one pointing down, after many attemps even in "safe mode" I cannot get pass the google account activation screen. Every time I get the error "cannot communicate with google servers" Can anyone help? is there a workaround the Google activation. My provider only has the APN server and the username and password for it, notting more, and those settings work well on the iPhone, so I have no idea why they don't work with the G1. Any ideas? Thanks.
