I know that this probably isn't the best forum to ask this, but I've seen from my lurking about that everybody here is very friendly and helpful. To start, I have a G1 in the US with TMobile, running the JesusFreke 1.51 firmware. I found out today that I need to leave for Europe later this afternoon. I've read in several places that TMobile will unlock the G1 so that a SIM card from a different carrier can be used after a certain time frame of having the phone, but I can't remember what that time frame is. My first question is, do I even need to get it unlocked, or does the JesusFreke firmware in essence already do this? If not, I'm assuming that I need to physically visit a TMobile store to have this done? Also, as long as I am typing up a new post, I will bring up another issue that I've been having (I can break this out into a separate thread if it is so desired). For some reason, the vibrator on the phone stopped working for notifications. It still vibrates on an incoming call, it still vibrates with the alarm, it even vibrates sometimes in a couple of games, but I cannot get it to vibrate when I receive a new email or SMS. For email, I am using K9, and for SMS, I'm using SMS Popup and ChompSMS. I've tried the vibration settings in both SMS programs (hell, I've even tried using the stock messaging application) with no luck. In fact, it doesn't even vibrate when you go into the vibrate pattern menus and scroll through the different patterns (I know it used to). This stopped suddenly as well...there were no updates performed at that time, and as far as I remember, no other applications were installed either. Any ideas? Sorry for the long windedness.
