Rogers DreamIf you're one of our Canadian readers with an HTC Dream on Rogers with Android 1.5, stop what you're doing and read this, eh?

You should have by now been contacted by text message that there's an issue with completing 911 galls that's related to GPS location, and that a software fix is on the way. Here's the, erm, text of the text:

URGENT 911 calls: Please disable GPS location on your HTC Dream device to ensure all 911 calls complete. HTC is urgently working on a software upgrade and we will provide details shortly so you can re-enable GPS.

Here are the steps to turn off GPS:

  1. Hit the Menu button.
  2. Choose Settings
  3. Choose Location
  4. Uncheck Enable GPS Satellite

Rogers apparently has pulled the Dream for the time being, until things are cleared up. Good luck, folks, and let us know when the update fix rolls in. [via MobileSyrup]

this phone looks a lot like the g1.

That's because the HTC Dream is the manufacture name of the T-Mobile G1
