Brian, I donít know where youíre getting this information, but the V3 is available in the US. I just happened to stumble on this site and noticed your posted question. Donít listen to some jackass on the other end of the line from Motorola. Iíve created a temp e-mail so you can correspond with me regarding the purchase of the V3 retail boxed, SIM Free & Unlocked for the same $700 price I purchased it for on 10/04/2004. And yes, they are a reputable company that Iíve purchased equipment from in the past 3 years. I will e-mail you the information directly if you are serious and not wasting my time. The Rep is my Companyís corporate account sales manager & I donít want a bunch of parasites harassing him for an item they canít afford nor intend to purchase & ruin my relationship with him or his company. Please note that this assistance is sole reserved for Brian & only if you are absolutely certain that you would buy this unit. Like I said, the only relations I have with their company is that I happen to be one of their corporate clients. And Iím in a good generous mood to offer my assistance to you. Your call chiefÖ
I get my V3 from Dubai. It`s a nice looking phone but it has some bad points. First,the life batery - too short, only 2 days. Second - low memory and 3 - less features compared with other models. But the design is great. I like it .....
I 've heard this phone has clas 1 Bluetooth with a 100m radius, how would this affect headsets, i.e, if i was driving would i be able to pick up other peoples calls?
I really want this phone. Can someone tell me when it's coming out in the U.S? I called motorola and they told me that it will come out this year. Oh ya?
Anyway, any kind of info will be helpful.
I just earned enough points in my Moto Contest. I get a V3 and HS180 heasdset for free!! Whoopie!!!
Got the phone on a handset only and put my pay as you go sim in it!
I have always been a nokia man from day 1.
But when I first saw the V3 I had to have one, As I have been used to Nokia's - still trying to get used to the way the phone works. But the build quality and the looks are in a place of its own, Much better than the 8910i I had before.
Paid £420.00 for it-is it worth it,based on looks alone - yes!
I got this phone yesterday. It has some very good features and you can tell thought has gone into it for customer satisfaction... it ISNT a bit big as some people say, i would rather have a phone you can slip into a tight pocket than a smaller width/thicker depth one that creates a bulge! The camera is vga and creates a good quality picture.. better than the SE t610 The phone tools apckage is very useful too... the ringtones are superior to the t610 too... even ones transferred from the t610 sound better on the v3! They are decent funky tunes better than the SE ones. They are loud and clear in the pocket too.
I bought mine for £99 on a £35 per month contract.
some options are hidden in funny places.. ie message tones are found under 'loud ring detail' or vibe & ring detail' etc depending on which profile you are on.. i would expect to find it under 'ringtones' or 'message settings'! it took me ages to find out how to change it!
I think ive bored you enough now, but i just thought i would let you know!
u can get these on prepay for £20 from blackmarket if u want i can get u 6
hey man thnaks for the info. But I heard that a cingular store near myu house will be getting it in about 2 weeks.
the phone was released in Hong Kong earlier this week , i think the 27th and yesterday in the UK. People from the U.S. can buy them from certain websites and through eBay. if interested, tell me and ill tell u a few web sites. but youll have to pay like 599.99 plus shipping.
we got this phone in our store a week ago, i have personaly used this phone for 3 days. honestly, it sucks. i switched back to my p910i. sure, its pretty thin, but the bottom is not thin, also, the back, where the battery cover is, its not straight. the lcd is pretty big but the camera stays the same. 0.3 megapixtal. which is the same shiatty camera thats aviliable in v220. good job moto, hello?
