WoW... is this true?!
I'm currently w/verizon and have been planning to switching to T-Mobile for the G1 since I use google all way too much... AND I happen to know people w/the G1 already!?
How exactly is it that the G1 will work without the SIM w/the 3g plan??
Yes this is true because I am NOT paying $50 a month for regular phone plan + additional $30+ for 3g. Most places now have free wifi and I don't see the point of having 3g.
My sister also has the G1 with the 3g which is nice when driving and using GPS, but not worth the money.
Let me explain again.
This method only works ONLY if you are using TMOBILE sim card and do not wish to sign up with the data plan.
If you are using AT&T sim card, you will need an UNLOCK code which can be purchased.
Here's a direct link on how to use TMOBILE sim without the data plan on G1.http://www.engadget.com/2008/10/23/t-mobile-g1-up-and-running-with-no-activation/
