for those of you in Europe who hasn't bought A780, there's a version of A780 with built in GPS support out recently!!!
i bought the a780 and i am a macintosh user, the phone does not connect with isync or as a modem in any fashion to any of my macs. no support from any motorola office i called in three continents. i feel ripped off, and lied too.
does anyone have cingular and have a POP3 mail account working? if you do please respond back via email..I need to set it up and I want it working!!! everything else is great! well I need a better browser as well
For Ben:...YOu can use mp3 music as your ring tone. Sound quality from the handsfree(headphone) is great but without the head phone its just okay.
hi, i really like this phone, and i want to buy it, but i only have one question, you can use a song, i mean a mp3 file as a ringtone, and also how good is the sound quality, like for listen to mp3 files without headphones?.. thanks everybody for your help.

hi! can any one please tell me if this fone allows you to Edit/change your Microsoft Files(excel/word/powerpoint)? or it just view the files?
My O2 mini got stolen, and I just got this phone after hearing so much about it. I use a Mac laptop, and had bought PocketMac software to sync with the O2. Unfortunately neither the in-built iSync or the PocketMac can sync with the phone, although I have transfered files through PocketMac.
I am trying to load all my addressbook contacts to the phone, but it looks like the only way would be to send one entry at a time over bluetooth. Somehow I cannot get all the entries transfered at one time, it just accepts the first entry. If I transfer a vcard file, it exits in the middle of the file transfer with "vcard parse error".
i juz bought this phone, but i wanna ask that where can i get the 3rd party application fot this phone?any links?
I just bought this phone. It is a fabulous phone. This is the one I have been waiting for. I wanted a nice phone with a good PDA function. I didn't want to have Treo because it is too wide. I thought it looks funny to talk on that thing. SE 910 seems to be too big. People complain that the screen is too small. If that's the downside, then it is not a phone for you. A780 is little bigger than a regular phone but not as big as PDA-phone such as Treo or O2. I didn't like a big one but I still wanted to have the touch screen input method so that I don't have to type my schedule with numeric key pad. The clarity of this phone is excellent when it is flipped open and it is reasonable with a cover closed. I am an old ATT sim card user with Cingular service now. SMS/MMS work fine.
KP, Yes, it does have the T9 predictive text output. What's even better is that it remembers the words you most often type and make this part of the T9. I am from the Philippines and it even remembers the words in Tagalog, my local language, and put this up as part of the predictive text.
A highly under-rated phone, a fantastic buy for music buffs,stereo headphones are fab!
does this phone have t9 for text mess..or not....can some one please tel me...or send me a email at email@example.com
I got hold of this phone a week ago and all I can say is that it rocks! It perfectly fits my work and lifestyle. Unlike the others here who have posted negative comments, I am very happy with this phone.
The package I got includes an extra battery and a bluetooth headset, which makes the quick battery life easier to deal with and calls a lot easier to receive.
The functions have served me well so far, especially the document viewer. I now have all my important Excel, PPT and Word files in the phone for quick reference during meetings. I also have gotten used to using the stylus and am now using the phone as a notebook as well.
I would say that this phone is designed for professionals like myself, but the younger ones can also benefit from its functions.
All apps work great and I have never encountered the problems experienced by some of the users here. I hope I won't. :-)
The external keypad also is a big help when texting while driving. This phone is more convenient to use than an XDA or any of the stylus based phones.
I change phones very often but I guess I will stick it out with this model longer than any of my previous phones.
I am a Mac user, how compatible is this phone? I could not find anything from Apple site or Motorola's site THANKYOU Does it matter if I buy from Thailand for features?
@maq: it wouldn't be able to support MS word or excel as the kernel essentially runs on linux - the programs included do support reading of xls, doc and ppt (and other) filetypes too.
