T-Mobile activation not required to partially use the G1

It seems T-Mobile has taken a different stance on G1 activation than Apple did with the iPhone. Apparently, all you need to do is slip in a T-Mobile-activated SIM card and run through the phone’s setup process. Once that’s done, you can put your new SIM back in for full Android access expect for network access or apparently, keep the old one active for full network access except for voice calls. This is still developing so stay tuned as more details float in.
