I have this phone for 10 months now. I love it. I'd call it "hte perfect phone for anybody who doesn't realy want to carry a phone but needs to carry one" ;-)
There's a new small phone called "Willcom WX03A". Size is comparable, wheight the same, but it got full keys, but surely will be more expensive

how can i make sure that my modu is already full-charged? is it the battery display on the phone, that when its not making any movement and already full? or just remove it from charging after 2hrs? coz you dont want to over-charge it and let the battery be damaged? right? thank you.

I've had this phone for a couple months now, but just recently filled up my SMS inbox (not sure how many since it doesn't give a count). I'm sorta disappointed that I'm not able to organize or transfer SMS messages into folders. I hardly use its 2gb capacity, it's a shame that I can't use some of that space to expand my inbox capacity.

Also--the PC suite software only seems to backup "contacts and options settings" when you do a backup. There is NO WAY to back-up, save, or manage SMS messages (this is an important feature to me). Your only option is to delete messages.

I am using modu PC Suite version 1.1.3.0 that came with the installation CD. If my issues with SMS management or backups have been resolved with a latter version, PLEASE share a download link for it please. I have been unable to find any software updates online since the makers have gone out of business & no longer providing support for this product.

Thanks in advance!


@Ags -- yes it is available unlocked (but some are carrier locked). I bought mine on ebay, but I'm sure there are other retailers who are selling it online.

does anybody know if you can get a extended life battery for the modu? it almost seems like you can plug a battery pack onto the bottom of the phone, where the usb charges the internal battery.

I came across the same problems, but was able to solve them:
1. Lower call volume by about 2 marks (speaker cannot handle max volume)
2. Insert sim card deeper (not restarting anymore).


I use black version (without jacket).
In my opinion:

Design:
+ so small, you can put it anywhere.
+ all metal solid case.
+ looks great (not like a phone actually :))

Display:
+ great viewing angles
+ good resolution (and sharpness)
- low visibility in sunlight
- little greenish

Functionality:
+ simple, intuitive menu
+ all basic functions i need: sms, calendar, alarm, mp3, gallery (which i don't need :))
+ 1.7 GB storage
+ USB connection (and charging from laptop)
+ don't need application to manage files (mp3, gallery...)
- slow sms typing [could be probably faster if you use one of supported languages [dictionary]: english, russian, romanian, portuguese, spanish]

Performance:
+ good call quality [both ends] (perfect with attached headset)
+ good music (mp3) sound quality
+ fast USB data transfer
- low battery life (~1-2 days) [not a problem if you use computer every day]

Conclusion:
I'm fully satisfied. I got more than I expected.

I'm a new user, i've just got the modu handset metallic. I quite happy because it is what i wanted: tiny phone, calls and sms. I need no more. As extra features we've got a sort of calendar reminders and bluetooth, also alarm. The text input for sms is quicker than expected for this phone, however, when you need to dial new phone numbers (not from sim), you really miss a full keypad, since the modu way makes it a bit slow for quickly phone calls. I don't use the mp3 feature but it is simple, don't ask too many options. Cons: the sound it is not very clear. It restarts itself from time to time. So far i have not found the way to pair the phone with the handsfree. The ring volume is a bit low for outdoors or noise indoors, so it is easy to miss some calls.
In resume, if you need the phone for work purposes or need to stay connected all the time or, usually, talk on the phone all the time and want to take advantage of some of your carrier voice plans, this is not your phone; but if you are not a heavy phone user it is a good option as it will pass unnoticed in your pocket.

Got MODU! Nice little phone. However, the PC Suite that comes with it, is very limited in features. Is there anything I can replace that software with?
