Please help, can't view movies on the A780. which movie formats does the A780 support? I have tried mpeg4 ba it didnt work. Any help please
Great phone! So far I have loaded movies, tv episodes, and mp3 albums into the phone, all worked great. It's got Real Player.
I also managed to get a Gameboy Advance emulator running, thanks to the linux os, people can make all kinds of programs for it for free ^^
Well, the synchronizing via MPT isn't working still. The contacts addresses get messed up pretty badly and recurring appointments with exceptions in the pattern aren't transferred at all to the phone. Finally, the contacts categories are a mess either. MPT doesn't even pick up all the categories for a start...
Now they promissed (again...) some of these problems will be patched in the next version, but the firmware isn't up to par either, as shows the following mail transcript:
The engineer sent me this:
There are 2 problems here, one is in mPT which will be correct in the next release, the other is in the phone software which will also be corrected but not sure when.
The PhoneTools should be updated shortly, they are currently testing the new version in our lab.
The phone update will be available threw a firmware update by Motorola but we do not know when it will be available.
At the moment I am using MPT v3.25b with Outlook 2002
So much for a phone that has it all... (sic)
So far the base phone has been great. it has many great features such as voice activation. the voice activation does work with a wired headset but as my bluetooth headset is yet to arrive i'm waiting to see if it still works. i cannot get the wap or http browser to work on the phone. when i can get it to work the web pages are distorted. i'm paying for the $40 a month pda connect unlimited which i was told would allow me to connect my laptop via bluetooth... it doesn't. you have to pay for the $80 unlimited data connect plan to use your laptop or it will hang at "Registering your computer on the network". the phone is great and is feature rich but most of the features have issues with cingular service. my buddy has one too but his has different software on it and is completely different than mine so there seems to be different flavors of software. while i think the phone is great i am dissapointed that it hasn't been realeased in the US. i did spend 2 hours on the phone with a kind cingular tech trying to get everything working. so far, i can send/recieve sms messages and phone calls but that is it.
Hi I'm thinking of getting this phone but i also like the SE k750i. Can someone pls help me decide...for those who have had this phone for a month i would appreciate to hear your comment regarding a780 and if the fuctions are really useful.
**I could use the PDA function but i also get easily frustrated if i have a hard time creating messages (sms) which is why m having a dilema between the 2 phones**
wel i m finding trouble connecting gprs with win XP..it stops after username verification and gives remote access error
Ok, so I undertand that the voice command is totally unavailable with bluetooth... Is there a wired handsfree option? (I mean a jack on the phone for a mic...) If so then does the voice command work on that?
Can any one tell me how does its mp3 player sound with the motorola headset ?
Is it loud when using headset ?
What about the sound quality ?

what does WAP and MMS mean? ooh and i dont know if to pick between the samsung e730 or this one? ahhh help please!! =)
I posted this before but the info in it may be helpful to others out there that are having troublesetting the WAP & MMS..
"I bought this phone a few months ago from CTI [thank you!], I never had and could not find the settings for the WAP & MMS etc.
There was no support or settings to be found for it, it was a bit of a PITA, but, thanks to Steven J at o2 in Braehead [Glasgow], I now have it all set up!
Steven set the WAP up and said that the settings were the same as the V635 - GREAT!, I then went home, went to www.HelloMoto.Com (set for UK) and managed to get all the rest set up - except the email, I'll get that eventually..
I've ordered a 256meg T-Flash memory card, the phone can take up to 1GB afaik but the highest available so far is only 256meg.
The A780 is a great phone with plenty of features, it speaks to you too! ie phone book entries and text messages etc!
I only discovered that 2 weeks after getting the phone!!
The A780 has loads more features too, and I'm glad I bought it - the Linux OS is fast, though not as straightforward as the others. The manual isn't too great, I had to work out how to enable 'Flight Mode' myself (Click the bettery strength bar up the top then 'Antenna Off'.
To enable WAP and MMS for o2 [in the UK], go to www.HelloMoto.com, click on 'Operator Settings' and use the settings for the V635 (V620 for T-Mobile iirc).
Hi Torus, I stay in Singapore and got the phone no long ago too. Any idea how to set up GPRS on M1. Appreciate your help.
