Hello again Everyone,
How are the ringers/rintones on this phone? Are there any that are cool and modern sounding?
Please let me know. Feel free to e-mail me.
I'm not sure I understand the concept of this phone. It seems like you dial from the exterior dial pad. But then how to you talk? Do you open the flip or does the flip remain closed while talking?
Also, how would I type a text message? Do I use the letters on the exterior dial pad or is there a keyboard that can be displayed on the interior screen?
In addition, I have a question about the phone book entries on this phone. Is there a notes section within a phone book entry? A section where I can write my personal notes about a specific entry.
Please let me know. Thank you.
Can anyone compare this phone to the Palm Treo 650.
That would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot. Please feel free to e-mail me.
This is truly a world-class phone. I have always been liking the phones from Motorola for its design, features, voice clarity and many more. This phone contains many features that the other phones do not support. One such feature I like is the voice dialing and the commands. All you need is to spell out the name in the address book the phone just fetches the appropriate one. Also the voice commands are really useful, like dial out, check battery, signal strength, send message etc. Unlike Nokia, software for this linux based phone is too difficult to get. I have been searching for productivity and entertainment software for this phone, and I am just unable to get. Otherwise, the phone is coooool.
Even I have noticed that there is a pause when you set a song as the ring tone. If any one gives you a miss call you will not know at all. If you keep in the vibe before ring, then you will come to know if a miss call is given else it is difficult to know when the miss came.
While using camera I see that the brightness quality is low, even if I increase brightness I see the display a bit dull
Is there any solution for these issues?
Moto a780 is gr8 phone.. if i keep any media as my ringtone,there is always a pause for every 2seconds when my phone rings.. if i play the music on the media player it plays perfectly..
does this happen for every one..
Also to get more battery lif out of you phone, turn you backlight down to 20%.
It too sometimes have problems with people hearing me on the other end. I also bought mine on ebay too. A quick fix is to buy a bluetooth headset it seem to work perfectly. I just wouldn't buy one on ebay because you can't return it if it is defective.
I'm posting to correct my e-mail address. Again, I'm so happy to own such a cool phone-I'm still trying to figure out to work some of its many features. I downloaded movie clips from my Windows operated laptop and it wont work on this phone. I tried renaming/changing its file extension-it still wont work. Appreciate your help!
when I first bought it, I can't figure out how to make browser, SMS, etc functional. I downloaded Opera mini browser and just followed the instructions/settings that some of you guys posted, now its working great although there were minor flaws, battery does not last very long, I can't tell you how happy I am to have the best SMARTPHONE/PDA that is out there., in function, appearance, style, productivity, etc. I have downloaded a lot of JAVA applications/games and still hope that there will be a MS office version avaialble to Linux/Java that can actually allow editing, etc. Great job-Motorola!
thank you very much mr darvennorris :)ill try to go there and GOD BLESS
I just got my A780 and am in love with it. One problem though, and it's a big one, I can hear callers but they can't hear me. Anyone come across this? If so, can you enlighten me. It's breaking my heart that this phone may be defective. Especially since I bought it on eBay and there's no returning it... Thanks in advance for any support with this issue.
this is fantastic mobile its gesign is very good suitable for any job thank you for the designer
I believe you can download a dictionary application at www.getjar.com.. Use 320*240 jave based applications
hi cris ! its me again ,just want to ask you where i can download an application or software of DICTIONARY for my mot.a780 .Thanks a lot in advance :)
i have just bought this device. i think it´s great!!!!! the problem: the cd installation on my pc. it doesn´t work properly, but never mind, because i´ve got trans flash reader on my pc
I posted the message about the motorola a780 settings. To install opera mini once it is downloaded to your phone, open file logo, tap the application you want to install everything else is self explanatory from there.
Once I download the jar file for mini opera, then??
thanks a lot Chris....you were a big help.....thanks again, Paul
you can view image files on this phone, jpg, etc. You can use your finger or any other pointed object on the touchscreen.....fingers can be a bit tricky.
