dear woland Reporter
you dont talk about a3100 excellence
what is good at this phone ?
After using this phone for 2 month i have found next problems:
(actually i have two A3100. One is my and second is of my wife, but both are doing same problems)
1. In Canada, when you connect thought Rogers or Fido and activate "Name Display" service the phone stuck on first incoming call with pop-up message "CNAP Notification" and do not ring anymore. The problem is in debug code left by developers in RILGSM.DLL. Tried to talk to moto developers - but they do not answer. The solution is to ask Rogers or Fido to replace "Name Display" feature by "Call Display".
2. If your operator support 2G and 3G network in same time then phone sometimes switching between them (probably tried to find better one) and as result sometimes completely lost the connection. No Service shown on the screen and only soft reset return it to working state. The solution is to manually define preferred network instead of "Auto" mode.
3. If your WIFI is permanently enabled and you are travelling in zones where is no WIFI signal then phone sometimes lost WIFI adapter. In this case you are unable to enable or disable it and can't connect. The is no solution and only soft reset restore the WIFI adapter.
I hope that Motorola will relise firmware update shortly which will fix these problems...
great phone beter than my old x1
this is the new winmobile
i recomand you to test a3100 Cretain
x1 has 256 ram. its much better! and x1 runs on 7200A processor which means its has VGA@30Fps video recording. 7201A is limited to CIF@30fps

How does one remove photos and video from this phone? I am unable to do this either via usb cable or bluetooth on my Mac.
I wanted an Iphone but wasn't crazy about it's size, I'm very familiar and actually really like windows operating devices, had HTC Touch and really liked it (so much i also kept it...) but wanted a new phone, found this really sleek looking phone with aluminum cover, touchscreen and trackball, actually kinda looks like a small iphone with smoother corners, loved it's looks, comes with windows 6.1, Opera browser, WI FI, 3G network, decent 3 mp camera and many more accesories, decent screen size and more, had to have it. I don't regret it. Had it for a week, love it. easy handling, easy to operate, very nice interactive home screen and menus. Only dislike battery life, i talk a lot on the phone so i have to charge it every 2 days and some times the touchscreen dosn't have optimal response time, also dosn't come with big internal memory you'll have to buy a 8GB or 16GB micro SD if you want your songs and MP4's in your motorola surf.. Not an Iphone killer but if you'd like a nice upgrade for your HTC or windows OS smartphone I would really recommend this phone.

Call me dump, I simply can't manage the Windows Mobile O/S, where simple tasks on most Moto phones get complicated with Windows Mobile. (of course the Symbian based Z8 was worse)
I was in US last month and tried to look for a book on Windows Mobile but couldn't find any, so I gave up on this unit and wait for the Android based Mb220 Dext.
