I got this phone about a week ago. Bought it in Guangzhou China for $400 USD. Came with a bunch of extras; two batteries, 3 chargers, belt clip, handsfree headset, 128MB T-Flash card, USB cable, backpack, purse, cup, external USB speakers. Not sure why they had some of the stuff, but they kept throwing it in. Chose not to get the Bluetooth headset with it for an extra $50, because I already have one.
Haven't set it up for my email, hopefully no problems there. Synced it up to outlook without any problems.
One annoying thing that took me a while to figure out. It has a feature called "Info Services". Couldn't really find much about it, actually nothing about it. It looks like something like SMS messaging, but I think it is more of a broadcast, and you cannot tell where it comes from. Never heard of it, but I would get a spam on it every 5 minutes, all through the night, had to finally turn my phone off. Got very annoying. Called customer service here in China and they had no idea. Finally I found that you can turn it off. You go to the messaging screen from the button on the top of the screen. Then you click on the menu in the lower right, choose Service Setup, and then you can configure the "Info Services".
Anyone know if software written for the A768 will work on this model?
Your trying to get the most out of your battery life, 24hrs is too long and might affect the battery in a later time, You are just trying to charge to battery fully without reducing its max capabilities. 8hrs is good enough.
Does anyone know how long to charge your phone for when you first get it? The people on Motorolafans.com said for 24 hours...does it really take that long?? Wont the phone tell you when it is done charging?
What you said about the frequency is very true, although, there is a setting for E680i to change the reciever to connect to the Cingular Tower better, I believe it is NetID 310 for Cingular, now I am not telling anybody to get an E680i, but keep in mind that these two phones are software identical. Keep in mind that E680i accepts SD/MMC while A1200 accepts T-Flash(MicroSD) which only goes up to 1GB, it will be a while till T-Flash goes to 2GB.
A1200 Has unique features called Voice Printing, and Voice Lock, Business Card Reader.
Voice Lock, you can use your voice to securely unlock and lock your phone, Business Card Reader, stored the card info by just taking a picture of the card.
I have not yet fooled around with Voice Printing.
I have an
And so far I rate A1200 the lowest.
The E680i is better than than the A1200? It could be, but keep in mind that the E680i does not have the 850 frequency capability, so if you are in California, for example, where Cingular uses that frequency, well you are going to have a great phone, but not use for it. There are many great phones out there, and yes, some are better than the A1200, but they don't have the frequency needed to operate properly in California. Not sure about T-mobil, but I use Cingular, and I need a phone with the 850 frequency capibility.
I have this, and so far all I could say is this is a reduced version of the Motorola E680i, same Linux OS hasn't been updated, but new programs, smaller, and comes with Opera 8.0, This really isnt worth it, but good to have if you want something stylish, and compact.
This is slightly smaller than an E680i, but I would rather, if I was you, buy another phone, with features like WiFi. Honestly I would still choose a E680i, rather than this phone.
Contact me for more info about this phone.
It's great. I want to ask where I can find the Bible application. Please help.

In Shanghai, the phone costs 3800RMB (about 470USD). extra battery is 280RMB (about 35USD) or 180 for a generic one.
The CDroms both have English and Chinese version of the software. Manual is in Chinese but can be downloaded from HK site.
Comes with 2 styluses and USB cable.
Looks great. But slow though
Gr8 phone, sharp crispy image, even dough specch recognition ain't the best yet... besides, how can I change de date from 1970 to 2006?
I have an Motorola A388c which looks very much like the A1200.
Question, when talking on the A1200 does the phone sound like you are talking on a walkie talkie or some sort of cheap phone? 2 Do you have any issues looking at the main screen in sunlight?
The A388c is a nice phone but those were some of the annoyances that it has, not to mention some of the issues which the currnet A1200 has.
Thanks for the feedback!

ANYONE, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I just got my a1200 and it is great. I did need to contact T Mobile to set up T Zones and sms/mms, but works fine now. My only gripe is that the voice recognition is extremely poor. Considering that the phone can dial your entire address book via Voice rcognition, this is a big problem. Does anyone have suggestions concerning this matter?
Hello All A1200 Owners:
I read a specification review on this phone. According to the specification, it stated that this phone do "handwriting and speech recognition". I am more interesting in the speech recognition function of the phone. I have had many pda/phones with QWERTY input. Since I have big hands, it find it very cumbersome to type e-mail on QWERT devices. I am thinking of getting voice recogniztion enable phone so that it can ditates my e-mail instead of having to type. Could you give me your feed back on your experiences the the A1200 and the speec recognization feature. Thank you in advance!
Just picked it up today. Great phone!!! I was gonna buy N80, but coz of the price difference, i picked this.... so much better than what i expected.... Perfect size for the ladies.... I have the white one. Glad i got this baby rather than N80 even though i had been waiting for the N80 since the day it was annouced....
I bought the MING last week, I like the phone, but the voicemail set up is junk. If I have a voice mail, the phone sends me a text message which is blank, it does't say "voice mail" then I check my voicemail and as soon as I hang up the phone, I get another blank message! Is there anyway to turn it off? The Manual doesn't say nothing about this. If anyone knows, I would greatly appreciate the help.
