i agree to some comments saying that moto has not yet showing its best in respect to cellphone technology..why this is happening? Truth is i very like the style of the new moto comer V8 and V9..but compared to the nokia, SE, and samsung which has the approximately same price, the camera, the screen, and the sound are much better..also the user interface is not much changing may i say to the previuos flip design V3, V6. Come on..Moto has been absent for so long since the last king of flip fone...but now what make me impressed is only the glossy metal made, nothing else...i think SE W910i is much much worth buying..same sleek stylish..but is more good in the user interface, sound, etc..hope moto could soon release better product in above respect..iam waiting..;-)
Moto V9 the message box is not designed as a shared memory eventhough it has an external memory. So it is only capable of keeping 30 messages. So when your inbox is full, then the alert will appear on the screen remind u to erase the privious messages.
hi, are u able to view sms on the outside screen without flipping open the phone?
This phone in my opinion is the best motorola phone i have ever used, although the message memory is very less.
plz if any one can help...i want to know abt the message memory....my inbox has 30 mesjs n it is showing low memory...any place i can store extra mesjs??????
Hey. Is the colour of v9 nice? It's like..maroon. Is it nice or just lame?
hey guys . dose the blutooth work more than 60 sec like the V3, or it become better and work as long as you want like SE and Nokia ?
and yah in V3 the blutooth was slow in finding other phones did that changed ?
and is't realy the talking time for 3.5 hours?

Your request is Motorola's command, due to consistent public demand, Motorola is about to launch their future model with a Kodak Camera feature,, a 5 megapixel engine & a lot, lot more.. it's the Z-12,,,prospect date is in the First Quarter of 2008,,, yeah
I carn't believe Mototola are still not increasing the spec of their phones. 2 megapixal cameras and the same design as the old razr is not going to sell. Motorola really need to bring out something worth buying or at least capable of competing with Nokia, SonyEricsson and Samsung,these manufacturers have far better camera's with proper camera flashes not the Motorola LED's and much brighter and vibrant colour displays. Sorry Motorola but I think your days are numbered as a mobile phone manufacturer.
thx for your reply mate. But i've checked with motorola store here in Indo, they said in V9 here we can not hide the function bar (5 icons for special task)like in v6 maxx. too bad actually, so all the icons are on top of my wallpaper in the home screen.
btw i am a big fans of moto phones and been using moto since 90's. motorola rocks!!!!
After buying v3 several times it kept breaking down on me after just a few months of usage. I was very hesitant at buying another motorola but i decided to get the v9. I've had it for 4 months now and love it, i have had to buy a couple of back covers for it though as they keep coming off and disappearing. Highly recomend this phone. Only downside is in Australia its a telstra phone and you can't read sms messages on the outside screen =(
I don't know if this has been answered already but what is the initial charge?
What Networks? Any network service providers' sim card can be utilized for this phone as long as your phone is sim unlocked or in layman's term.."Open Line"
When it's open-line, you could bring it over to any part of the world where there is mobilephone technology present, yeah baby,,:-)
When you were using "N" phones before then switched to Moto, initially you'll definitely be confused or bewildered where to find this & that,, about your concern, you may go menu > settings > personalize > home screen or wallpaper, so on & so forth.. it's all there, all you have to do is to use your eyes, yeah baby:-) or you may refer to your user's manual or on-line user's manual for tutorials:-)
By the way, your wallpapers can be shown up on your display into three modes: tile, center, fit-to-screen.. i think the fit-to-screen was the one you were trying to ask...:-)
hi in indonesia v9 model.......above the options n main menu botton.....there is a launch bar with 5 icons for special function. anybody know how to hide it? it makes my wallpaper picture smaller. I can't hide it like v6 maxx model. is it work this way? help please? thx
hi there, can i hide the function bar in the home screen like in motorola v6 maxx? btw i just bought this phone and this phone really cool.
My nephew just 2 1/2 years, weight 15 kg and height 93 cm. The fact is he don't feel huge and in his hand doesn't look huge. I don't know how small your hand so you feel pretty huge. Or you are dwarf people (small people) so you feel Motorola Razr 2 V9 is pretty huge. Hahaha....
Keypad weird? Hahaha... That's similiar like Motorola V3 Razr, Nokia N76, and more other brand copy flat keypad from Motorola V3 Razr, That's mean normal keypad.
The fact is My Motorola Razr 2 V9 for standby can 4 1/2 days until 6 days. Normal use for 3 hours non-stop hear music using Motorola Bluetooth S9, 10 until 20 messages, and 10 minutes surfing internet / 10 minutes calls; just lose 1 bar of 3 battery bars.
I saw this at the mall & I think it's pretty huge especially when you flip it open. The keypad looks kinda weird with the spaces & all. However, it does look chic on the outside especially the touch screen.
I heard the battery life of this sucks. Any truth to that?
