This phone is amazing... at first I thought it would be a problem due to all the prior comments. However, I have learned that it has to do with who ever sets up your phone. I live in CA USA and I have had no problems. It lets you make your own ringtones. You can have more than 50 itunes... I'm up to 75 and still adding. You just have to make sure you have the right size memory card... I have the 512mb getting ready to buy the 1gig. The photos are pretty good but not the best. But like someone else said it's a phone and the photos are still good enough to capture the moment if you need too. I have no problem going on the intrenet either. I was able to text, mms with no probs here in the US too. If you have the "Motorola Phone Tools" cd that comes with the phone connecting to your phone via computer is a snap and the programs on that cd let you do whatever you need too! The only problem I did have was buying ringtones from cingular, but who needs them I made my own and they sound way better!! Not trying to be a snob but this phone is practically perfect in every way. It is a MUST BUY for those of us who love flip phones... Enjoy :)

-to assign the mp3 as ringtone is very simple, just go to multimedia...sounds...mp3 title...option...apply as (just choose ringing tone). but if you want to assign it as other tone [like message etc] you've to go to setting...ringing type...personalization...

Good phone...i just bougth it today.....it got respectable in walkman mode with headphones...much lower than ipod(but Respectable), almost eqal to Sony erricson w550i walkman phone(but bass is little less effective).....camera is just for fun utility...i havent tested in open sunlight but in room it is below ok.....although video recording is...you can say it is ok.........but all mater nothing compares to its super styling.....another thing is that its bluetooth is slow in comparison to nokia or sony erricson sets.
You have program called Opera mini browser(90KB), with opera mini you can go on internet like with the real PC, on any network. You'll need to have GPRS activated.

Plz let me know
Hey guys, absolutely love my v3i!!! only thing is, does anybody know how i make a song i have put on the phone my ringtone?? i cant work it out. also, whats the theme? and how do i create it? many thanks
x x x
does anyone know what colours it comes in, or is it only in silver?
I have exactly the same problem (see quote below) with my brand new Motorola V3i:
A call rings, I open the phone and the screen goes white. Nothing I can do. The call is lost. Sometimes, when I open the clamshell more slowly, the screen does not go white, but on pressing answer, nothing happens. To top it off: I have seen spontaneous reboots while on USB connection (not during syncing, just ons USB doing nothing).... complete spontaneous reboots! It just turns off! having to enter sim pincode again and everything.
I have the V3i for almost a week, As this is the 1st time I am using a Motorola Phone, I need to ask you guys a question. Some times when I receive a call, as soon as I open the flip and press the green button, the call does not connect and after a few seconds the screen goes white and then after closing the flip, the call ends. However if I use the flop open anwewr systemn, no problem at all. I do not believe that it is a physical problem. Can anyone give me an idea?
how do i edit the default (999) 1-touch number on v3i? This default number is programmed on Key 1.
i have been using may cp for more than 2 mos now, and iam very, very pleased... the style is cool the features are great and the sound is awesome.... no problems encounter to date...
I've been using a v3i for about 2 weeks now and so far I haven't encountered any major faults with the unit. The only problems I have with the phone is:
1. The phonebook isn't as user friendly as Nokia's or SonyEricsson's phones
2. The camera isn't as sharp as Nokia's or SE's 1+ megapixel lenses
3. I can't seem to find any "skins" or themes on the net for customization
4. Battery life lasts only about 2-3 days
I've never had problems with reception or calls being dropped. It doesn't automatically reboot. With regards to messaging, I can store up to 90 messages. I live in the Philippines,by the way, and it seems that most of the problems people are having with this phone have something to do with the service providers there.
Hi! can anyone tell me if this phone is compatible with 1gb transflash memory card?
v3i has a mp3 player. does v3i comes with stereo headphones? can we use stereo headphones to listen mp3 music?
