Try the suggestions on this web site. It worked for me. You will loose the Motorola Media player (junk anyway) but the web access works great.

Screen turned white after a year, seems it's pretty common with this phone.

I bought this phone in August and in less than a month later....the screen turned white. Then the number 2 on the phone stop working. Everytime I close my phone and open it up it either turns off or the screen goes white and then I have to turn it off and on again which is really fustrating. I suggest anyone who wants this phone to find another.

Received the Motorola W490 from T-Mobile (USA) in July 2008. No issues until December of 2008 when the battery couldn't hold a charge.

I just got the Motorola W490 and I can't figure out when I've gone over the word limit when texting (per page) usually phones show the letter count-down but this phone counts up. Is there a setting change I should look into?

If the phone is shut and i recieve a call i can open it and talk but every button is frozen! this is so irritating and they just send the same phone over and over and i take good care of my phones so i dont know what the deal is.

In the Ring Styles then choose the Style of ring you have or want. Then go to that Style detail screen and you will see how to set up that style's ringtone for everything.
