Submission + - G1 Android Phone "Repaired" By Installing (

fuxoft writes: "My friend's T-Mobile G1 Android phone had problems (it was randomly locking up) so he went back to T-Mobile shop to get it repaired (as it was still under warranty). To his surprise, they "repaired it" by installing (or at least trying to install, bricking the phone) Windows Mobile on it and noting that "Android is highly unstable system". Read the whole story, including the scan of the actual report from the service technician."

A failure will not appear until a unit has passed final inspection.
