Hi, a few questions about this phone.
1. Does it work with T-Mobile service in the United States?
2. Will I be able to use T-Mobile internet with this phone?
I wish they could add voice dial over bluetooth and allow MP3 ringtones or Mp3 player over bluetooth.
Hi. A780 works perfectly well in the Philippines. In fact this is the phone I am using right now. I got it from globe at 19,000 pesos (18 months to pay with no interest) you can also get it from semicon but at 34 to 37k. it’s a nice phone. Am glad I got it instead of the p910. it also has tremendous extras unlike other brands who smugly just give you the basic phone and charger
The motorola A780 is truly a smart phone in all its ramifications. It has a beautiful artistic design with great PDA functions. This phone can read your text messages back to you, it recognizes names in your contact list for voice dial without you having to program your voice,you can dial both internally using the stylus or externally using your fingers, there is a document viewer to view microsoft word, excel and power point,it also comes with EDGE for great browsing,bluetooth for wireless connections and an internal modem for dial up connection.The opera browser included also works well. For those who have families overseas, you'll find the world time function of the A780 very helpful. Now you know the appropriatew time to make your calls to your family and friends who are abroad. Since no phone is perfect, there are some flaws too,but not that serious to make you not want to own this bad boy.For those who complain about battery life, here are some tips:
1.Disable bluetooth if you aint using it.
2.Reduce backlight to about 20% (You can still see the screen at this rate).
3.Set backlight sleep time to 5 mins.
4.Put a check mark by battery Save option under power management.
Someone also complained of no free games.I think with that, it depends on where your phone is shipped from as in what market. I don't know about the Hong Kong or US versions but the Taiwan market has three games on it(3D). In terms of business functions like using microsoft word to edit or power point and excel, I think there might be updates for that in the future.It would be nice if you can not only view microsoft documents but also edit them. Setting up voicemail can be tricky on the A780. Make sure you have your voicemail number programmed under the divert calls settings too or else your voice mail may never come up when callers call. Synchronizing from computer to mobile is really easy except that sometimes if there are no work addresses on your PC, they are synchronized to the A780 as work addresses. To configure the motorola A780 for e-mail, you'll need the actual IP ADDRESS of your service provider.Also there is a mix up with the city and state settings eg: Columbia, SC U.S.A is displayed as SC,Columbia U.S.A.The speaker phone is loud enough and the MP3(Real)player plays crispy music but it is kind of selective when it comes to playing movie/video files.You'll need a flash card if you plan on downloading music files, saving pictures etc because the internal memory is only 48MB.Personally, the motorola A780 is awesome.If only it was a CDMA phone then customers would have really enjoyed the quality of Verizon instead of T-mobile or Cingular.
I have A780 and iPAQ, however, could A780 be used same as iPAQ PDA (PocketPC) that download some Linux program (or Java applet) from PC on it?
Sorry about the wrong info about the ringtone change mentioned by me bellow. Its possible to change the default ringtone as well as customise the ringtones... Sorry fro the goof up I apologise guys.
Any idea whether the Motorola A780 firmware would be updated? ... May be they could fix the Ringer/vibrate problem. One of the other features I found missing was how do I change the defaut ringtone. I am only able to change ringtones individually for each person... what about the default ringtone... May be thew should also add a Send business card option. Currently business cards received from a Nokia phone was seen as garblled text on my 780. I wish they could add a full screen area like the P910 for handwriting.
Apart from all these the phone is very very coool. Hope they come out with more apps and games to support this phone.
Can this phone work in the Philippines? If so, where could I buy one? Please respond...
The motorola A780 is really a great phone. No phone can be perfect so I understand that naturally it should have some flaws.Some of the little flaws are: When synchronizing from PC to the phone,the ciity and state sections are misplaced.If you only have a home address on ur PC it would be synchronized as a work address. The server settings for e-mail is really an IP address that your ISP should give you an dnot a pop or smtp address,the Joy stick is a little bit off and you cannot edit microsoft word, excel or powerpoint. It is still a great phone though. The motorola A780 WAP settings for cingular is as follows.. APN:wap.cingular
DNS Server is usually left blank for first slot.
Dial in Number:14152441012(call cingular to verify)
Baud Rate: Auto
DNS Server: This should have a check mark and is usuall 188.8.131.52
Make sure you call cingular to verify these settings if they dont work for you.Hope this helps.
I have the HongKong version of this phone and it rocks. Make sure you get the HK version its better than the TW version.
