When will AT&T get the G1 (Google Phone)?

I see that the G1 is offered by T-Mobile.  Anyone know when AT&T will offer it?

I've heard rumors that there will be an htc touch phone with android software. But I'm not sure if/when it will come to att. But wireless providers aside t mobile are supppsed to get it. If the software on the phone is that good, other companies will have it too.

Yeah?  How would I activate it for use with AT&T?

Yes, get it unlocked like the other poster mentioned. I don't remember when the G1 came out, but Google said they would start selling it unlocked after 3 months.

Once you buy it, you should be able to use it on AT&T's network with no problem. I'm not sure which data plan would go with it, though, you should ask.

Interesting!

 

If I get an unlocked G1 (from Ebay or Amazon Marketplace or wherever), and I put my current SIM card in it, will it work on the AT&T network without any trouble?  I already have an unlimited data plan, so I'm not concerned about data/internet usage or anything like that.  I'm concerned that it will work on the AT&T network without any trouble.

 

Anyone know for sure?

how many responses from how many people will it take?

 

as long as the phone is compatible w/ at&t's network (850/900/2100 gsm/wcdma) and is carrier unlocked, itll work.

At&t's network uses 850/1900 mhz for both GSM and UMTS.

hme83 was just pointing out that a phone's compatibility with UMTS 2100MHz is immaterial, that's all Smiley Wink

im so used to bouncing between here and japan (where 2100mhz really comes in handy) that i completely forgot how "immaterial" it can be to the guy thats not stuck in a plane for hours at a time. 'sides, "quad-band" sounds so much cooler than "tri-band" when choosing a device.

The G1 was the original Android phone, released over a year ago.  The Google Nexus One is the latest (and seemingly greatest) in the line of Android phones offered by T-Mobile.  I'm not sure why you would want old technology.

Someone wasn't thinking and dug up an old dead thread to post in it and thats why your confused.

 

jedihawk asked that question almost a year ago, long before the current Andriod releases.
