I just got this phone 2 days. I installed the software and USB work fine.
Can some one tell me how to transfter ringtones from PC to the mobile? And in what format?
i have both the silver and black versions of this phone, and it is quite an amazing phones. for all those out there having problems with software or connectivity issues with this phone, i can only tell you that there is a difference between the original phones and phones purchased overseas, especially in china. the cheaper versions of this phone are the beta testing versions hence the cheaper price tags, these software versions are only beta and not the final realease. if you bought the phone for full price from a creditable retailer, you will find no problems at all with the usb connectivity. i bought mine in hong kong from Fortress and Boradway and have had no problems using the usb on usb 1.1 as well as usb 2.0. you pay peanuts you get monkeys, don't be cheap and buy the proper versions!
I just got the A668 for about a month now, and I have received lots of complements on the look of the phone. The Writing software is awesome, one of the main reasons I got it.
But I can't figure out how to get my Moble Phone tools to work. I installed the CD it came with, but it doesn't regonize it, and everytime I plug in the USB it just charges my phone. :( Please help!! I would love to download my pictures onto my computer!!
never mind i got it to work now
buti don't know how to make the ringtones in melodey studio...wat kind of music files am i supposed to make it with?
Hey freddy, is there a function to actually set up what colour light you choose to flash?
I am also stuck on the fact when i get new ringtones using USB i can not set lights for it :( Unless there is a way i would love to know :D
The other "annoying" point of the phone is when you connect the mobile up to the computer and try to delete ringtones,images and other stuff you can add onto your phone. The titles are not there anymore but next time you connect it up again its back (slow response -.-) and it hasnt fully been deleted off the phone neither.
Hi Thanks for the feedback. I finally got mobile phone tools to work.
I must say I the joint and creaking sound made by the clam shell kinda annoyed me... I contacted the guys at Motorola and they told me that the phone was specifically engineered this way to prevent it from cracking... Its not loose... they just gave it a little extra room for the swivle.
I'm starting to really like this phone. The silver finish is so awesome, and puts most phone out there to shame in terms of appearance.
The major downfall however would be the lack of memory (8MB). Perhaps they should have left out some of the useless functions such as picture drawing to free up more memory for the phone.
What I find most enjoyable is the embedded colorful lights on the outside of the phone. When your phone rings, its flashes like disco lights (you can also change the color of these lights)... very groovy indeed!
The touchpad SMS writing takes longer than key punching (talking from an English writing perspective not Chinese) but once you get used to it, its actually very straight forward and simple.
Believe me this phone will turn heads everywhere you go. Forget the lack of Mp3 functions (go get an ipod if you want to listen to mp3s since phone radiation gives you cancer!) -- It's appearance makes up for everything -- And its a great price too!
I just installed the cd given in the box. i wait till the screen detects the mobile when i hook it up. (the programme is just a replica of the phone on the monitor screen) The use works fine for me, and it also charges too.
Install the given cd and try the usb port and see what happens because it doesnt automatically detect it at the first go.
This is my first mobile. I didn't have any experiences with other mobiles to compare it to. I bought it in Beijing two months ago and had major troubles with it. The joint of that clamshell was poorly manufactured and not stable. The two parts could be moved against each other and creaked. I consider that poor quality. One week later I went to the Motorola service one center and people there claimed that this was normal and that they couldn't help me. But I persisted and changed to a new mobile. Then I found that all of the models had this problem, which was very disappointing. About one month later the new mobile's screen started to blank and software would crash when I shut/opened the cell. I went to the MSO center to repair it. They told me they changed the mainboard and parts of the hull. I also got new (or at least different) software. The mobile still creaks and the screen part is easily moved out of position when I turn it over. BTW, the chinese motorola support was not friendly at all and tried to brush me off. Nobody could speak any english. Many chinese people I asked would tell me that you shouldn't buy a Motorola phone.
There are many other cells. I probably won't give this company another shot. Now I will see how the new phone works out.
PS: I installed the software on my notebook and my phone is recognized. But the software seemingly can't process chinese sms and all downloaded are crippled.
I'm having the same problems as well!!!! The program mobile phone tools doesn't seem to recognise/detect my phone when I hook it up to my pc using the usb cable. Its so annoying. Can anyone offer some help please! Thanks.
I love my A668.. only thing is i'm having problems connecting it to my computer lately. Will never sync up contacts.. and can't download pics either... Great camera.. no way to get it to my computer. AS well, sometiems it will display the wwrong time.. For example @ 3pm it'll say 5pm... regularly. Great phone but problematic
the greatest phone to be realesed by motorola without a doubt immaculate screen, longer battery life better reception, 1.3 pxl camera, beats the v600 or v3 razor in every way isnt quad band bluetooth feature isnt offered on every model touchscreen qwerty txt input high in price but worth it
Finger writing mode! (FWR)
Go to page 43 in your manual!
Omg this is the greatest technology going!!!
IF YOUR CHINESE YOUR GOING TO LOVE THIS!
After fingering writing, the phone gives you a choice of 6 letter for you to choose, just incase you have miss stroked. It is precise and fun!!
It is slow if you want to type plain english, i say stick to normal texting :P.
BUT! you can switch to english FWR.
This phone is so fun, its keeping me awake hehe
About Taking Pictures:
Ok since people been "moaning" about the camera, i have been playing around with it especially for you people :D.
You can change the resolution of the pictures which gives GREAT pictures! Theres also a quality change *fine, normal and basic" (i have kept mine on fine :D)
*when you higher the resolution, the camera becomes laggy/sluggish*
I will find out more later, i need to sleep now lol
Hi eric, i have got this phone this week. The usb cable is supplied and goes into the same "hole" as the charger.
I am currently playing around with the phone. I will give you more info later (for those who want to listen to a person who owns 1)
Ty ---> my reply should be soon :D
You need to turn the camera resolution up to max. Then the A668 takes amazing pictures. The only problem I have is that the software that came with the phone is not reading the phone as connected when I hook it up to my pc with the usb cable. I also cant figure out how to choose english in Fiinger rec. mode while writing text messages. It only recognizes chinese and numbers. Other then that the phone is stylish, and has great features..except no BT or IR
I love the phone, but my camera is not very clear at all, not bright either, and the flash is a waste (does nothing). Does anyone have this problem? Other phones with camera with less resolution are much clearer.
Is this phone USB connectable? If so where are you suppose to get the data cable from because it doesn't come with the phone... It has a great camera (brightness + photo editing as well!!!)... I Just need to know how you can transfer the pictures to your computer.
you guys forgot to mention that this phone is the first phone in the world that features a finger style text message, where you can write your message in chinese or english on the key pad, thats right, on the key pad, now for you people who never used this phone, please do not post anymore comments acting like you know the phone.
