VERY unreliable. I previously owned a Motorola A920 with 925 upgrade. That phone kept having software failure so I upgraded to the A1000. This too has dodgy software. I have several times lost all data as the phone independantly reformats itself! Even three who are usually difficult have agreed to exchange for an alternative phone due to their awareness of the problems. NO it is not just the one phone - three won't even offer another a1000 in exchange because they say I will have the same problems. After being so excited about the phone, and loving it for the first couple of months I am now NEVER buying another motorola smartphone again.
am intersted in buying this phone. is the camera really that bad and i saw on a review its symbian. how true is that cos i have a symbian7 nokia and i want the apps & games on it to work on the Motorola or its no use. thanks
remember, we are the thin end of the wedge here, if we dont shout now in a few years time it will cost a fee to send on bluetooth, let alone mms................metering gprs is a massive money spinner for all the networks biggest ripoff sinse brinksmat..........
if the a1000 is on the "3" network then you can forget about html , no it is shut off. i dont know about a sim free a1000 , but "3" have roped it in and killed it ... is "3" the new vodaphone?
i just want 2 ask if this phone can have video calling???
I know the motorola a1000 has a full html browser, but cant get it 2 work. REcieved the setting for 3, altered them on the phones but still it does not work.
Can anyone 1 help?
USA USERS PLEASE HELP!!
I just bought this phone, supposedly completely unlocked. I'm using cingular as my service provider but I'm having a problem programming it to connect to the internet. I have this bad feeling that the internet is locked into some 3G service provider. No one at cingular knows how to do it since this phone isn't in the US yet. I think I got thoughly screwed by buying this. Does anyone know what I need to do to get internet acess on this?
hi, if i had know this phone was totally locked in to the very poor 3 site and anything else is unavailable, i would NOT have got myself locked into an iron chain contract for it. it has good features but 3 have totally ruined it. MY ADVICE; GET A XDA. END OF STORY...........
The A1000 in sync with my laptop now after sent in for service at Motorola Singapore. The staff was so professional and friendly. The actual problem was the 3rd party bluetooth adapter installed on my laptop. The A1000 is working fine and now the bluetooth data tranfering is no problem to me. I am very happy with this model.
I looket at many different smartphones before deciding to go with the A1000 and I must say I am very happy with my choise. I like the Symbian UIQ OS, there are loads of applications, games and emulators, everything has worked perfect, the screen is lovely, the battery time is ok.
The only thing that annoys me is that it takes like 3 sec for the keyboard to appear when you need to write something, the SE P900/910 is faster in that aspect.
This phone sucks, ive had mine for 3 months before the screen failed and motorola refuse to fix it under warranty...
I had a problem in sync'g with laptop via Bluetooth. It works smoothly on cable but unable to connect the desktop suite software via Bluetooth. My laptop detected the A1000 but just can't sync using the software provided. If you could have some solution, appreciate you can share with me. Many thanks in advance.

Yo Dean-3g you should really get this device it's very hot I just got mines in the mail today and I've playing for hours trying to figure out how to log on to the internet. By the way if someone could tell me how that would really be great.
HTML browser? There is one and its wonderful although i dont know which one it is. No limitations, for i bought it NOT in a 3G shop. Chinese characters? Of course it can read and write them. Remember, i bought it in Hkong.
So far i couldnt get to make it ring with my own .mp3's though. Anyone knows whats the matter with the software??
