    What if I don't want to pay the $35 g1 service and just want to use the phone for texting and calling, will I be able to do that? Or does this phone need all the services?

    No, you have to get a Service Plan.

    You might as well get a basic flip phone if you don't want a Data Plan.

    Yeah a g1 is pretty well crippled without a data plan.

    I'm pretty sure if your with tmobile and get a g1 from them your REQUIRED to have that data plan.

    you would have to buy a g1 from them for the full price with ought a contract.
    then you need to buy a cheap phone from them too with a plan.
    you'll also need a friend with a data plan.

    use your friends sim card to activate your phone with his data plan.
    after that you can put the cheap phones sim into the g1
