I just got this phone and I have to admit it is truly amazing. Regarding some of your doubts, it does have a big memory for messages (I've heard about 300in/300out), plus 18+ mb of internal (mine at least had that) you can do almost everything with it closed wich is very practical, you can recieve/reject calls, play games, access menus and stuff.
Newer software versions don't have any bugs, mine had clock and icons already working, plus Obeymoto.
On the outside it is outstanding, so if you're a stylish junkie, this is for you, sure samsung one might have a tad more functions and the 3megapixel stuff but held in hand it feels like a plastic cheap toy, meanwhile this feels like a solid, yet thin phone with superb materials and perfect looks. It is deffinitely an eye-catching phone.
The camera on this one is very good, it feels like you're holding a digicam, and the trick is to hold the phone after taking the pic for about 1 sec, so no blurry photo (in fact there is an auto-focus like integrated)
Regarding mp3 it is ok, though it lacks a specialized program (DAP just doesn't cut it being a java) but if you're a shuffle lover like me, you won't have a single complain.
Design, comfortability and Features, this phone has it all.
hey can you pick up and dial out calls without sliding it open? thanks
ok, is there a mobile phone tools out for this model yet? and how do you fix the clock situation? i see some postings but can't find the program you need to fix the thing!
Had this phone for just over a week now. Sure does make a nice change from Motorola's existing line of Razr inspired clamshells. However, the build quality is not as good as I'd have hoped. The slider is wobbly, and gives a rather unsure feeling when using the navigation keys. The flash though does make a nice change and comes in handy when taking pics in low light. I have been using Motorola for as far as I can remember, and this handset makes a good substitute to my existing Krzr. Cheers!
maybe i'm just being dumb, i've bought a mem card but can't find anywhere to put it :S
Now I just ordered the phone and I gotta tell you, in real it looks much better than on the photos, the bluish isn't that harsh and very subtle it's sooo cool looking in real, the pics here are a bit off, so by design it gets a 9from me from it's generation of phones, also i'd like to mention that i had something against slidephones, i didn't use lg and samsung because of this fact for a long time, but this phone changed my mind. it just feels good to slide with it! :)
how many text can this motorola store? i'd like to buy a new phone with big inbox storage instead of 80 of the e398
choosing colors between bleu or red ? which one is better? is the number pad for the black on in blue color ?
I just got mine in today. its one bad mamba jamba but people tell me they can barely hear me when i talk on it. Anyone else have this prob? I was told i sound like im in a trash can when im talking on it. Other than that this phone rocks my world
there's a fix to the missing clock with instructions at http://motorizrmods.spheredesigns.net
How is the Buttrey ?? is it Good or just like other MOTO ?? how about price ?? is it available in the Middle east ?? I dont think so !!
generally i'm used to phones wher ethe battery lasts me no longer than a few days inbetween charges but i've had this phone for two week now and i've only had to charge it for the first time yesterday, its got exceptional battery life compared to most earlier moto's
a lot of info (troubleshooting, etc.) about RIZR and other phones can be found at howardforums . com
