It is only 3 months since I bought a V690 while I was in Singapore last October. I Had realy enjoyed using it as I could connect it to my computer and rtreive msgs. I could make photos etc. It realy assisted me in my manegerial activities. However When I travelled to my home village where I could not charge it for some days, It went out of charge and I could not charge it immediately. It took some 10 days until I got back to town and tried to charge it but it could not be chargeable. I have sent an enquiry to you on 'firstname.lastname@example.org' regarding the problem and I hope I will be able to get your assistance so that I can continue enjoyig the good features of V690

Let us have a comparison of V690 versus other makes from NOKIA and SAMSUNG as well as MOTO's own RAZR V3.
SAMSUNG'S E330,NOKIA'S 7200 and 6170,MOTO'S V3 and V690 can all capture highest image size of 640x480.
All models listed have hidden antenna.
All models listed have shared memory, non expandable. SAMSUNG wins with bigger storage size. NOKIA's 7200 with lowest.
Only MOTO's V3 comes with BLUETOOTH connectivity. MOTO's V690 only way of data transfer can be done only with data cable.
Only NOKIA's 7200 comes with FM radio tuning.
SAMSUNG and MOTO's V690 comes with flash. Non others have it.
Value? MOTO's V3 much more pricey. Follows by SAMSUNG's E330 and NOKIA's 6170. NOKIA's 7200 is a little cheaper than MOTO's V690,but the addition of data tranfer accessories for NOKIA which requires more $$$ looses out to MOTO V690 which comes with full complete data suite.
i am planning to buy this kind of phone next week. i just need your advice as to whether its wise to buy one or not. does anyone know if this unit works in the Philippines? i might send it there. trhanks
Does anyone know how to get the callers name to show up on the external display instead of their numbers whenever you get a call?i cant figureit out! thanks
Does somebody knows here can i find the software to download the video to the pc. thanks.
I've been using this phone for about 5mths, and so far i'm satisfied with its performance.
When i bought the phone, it take me lots of time to really get it perfect on general functions such as caller id photo display and caller id grouping. As the manual does not provide sufficient information on how to get these done in short time.
Just like any other MOTOROLA phones, it takes users lots of days to explore completely by playing around with the features. And to add, just like any other MOTOROLA phones, ringtones are always too low even if you set it to the max(However,you can get this corrected when you send your phone to MOTO sevice to get firmware upgrade or other tuning).
However, few weeks later, problem comes...the external display goes off very quickly everytime i close the phone. Doesn't know that the external display is faulty,until the display goes distorted.
I've just sent this phone for service recently, and all the problems are corrected.
Snap shot quality is good but not too impressive,focus to blame. Brightness compensation works well if taking close objects in slightly darker area.
Transferring of datas(pics) is ok with the supported software cd supplied. The only bad thing about the program is that it takes way too long to startup.
In General, i'll hold on to this phone till the contract of my current subscrption ends. General usage of this phone is alright if you are not too picky.
Comparing to other makers such as SIEMENS or SAMSUNG, whom may offer additional features such as voice memo(dictaphone), larger memory(5mb shared memory is not enough...) as well as built in FM radio(commonly available in NOKIA sets of the same price range)...MOTOROLA needs to really buckup before releasing any phones to get positive response.
Does this phone have photo call feature....would anyone know....it costs about RM750 in Malaysia
