Hi there. Just wanting a bit of info about why my phone might be acting strange. I got the G1 about 2 weeks ago. Today, I turned off my data plan since I'm always around wifi. Additionally, I changed my phone number (I had an old out of state number previously). Dispite the TMobile rep swearing it wouldn't even allow phone calls, the phone works nearly fine. I can make calls and send texts (though MMS won't work, even after manually adding the settings mentioned in other threads). However, when I went to view contacts, I had an annoying black box that would obscure my contacts. I hit menu > edit sync options > unchecked "sync all contacts". Restarted the phone. The black box went away, but so did half of my contacts. What am I doing wrong? I readded the contacts, but that's just strange. Is there a way to save these to the SIM or will that not deter the phone from throwing out contacts? Thanks!
