it is useless, it is not at all comparable with nokia handset even nokia1100. its fm is useless & on GPRS it indicates it has facility of mp3 tones but actually it has no facality of mp3 tones. it has not any comparision with nokia. i brought motorolaC168 in 3900Rs but nokia 6030 with superb FM reception & graphics cost 4000Rs only. So i think i have made a huge mistake on buying this mobile phone.
Very Good Phone with Fm Player, sleek and good looking beautiful phone, nice battery backup, FM Reception is excellent with bass boost, good sound like Dolby Digital, Worth buying it
Hi This is Najeeb Khan from Bangalore India, i bought this set for 3700 Rupees this is a good set with good battery backup, 600 phonebook, 250 sms, fm player, more over cheap n best i recommend this cell to all the viewers good sound reception, sleek and i am sure u will like it.
Excellent phone found in pocket after a thousands of webpages and mobile shops search real value for money, it most suitable an simple fone for peoles who wants to use phone set as communication device other than camera or music player.
Amazing voice quality but normal battery time not as claimed in spec maximum five days with minimum use.
I have this mobile.
Can anyone tellme how to connect FM radio with loudspeaker?
Dear Warder and all,
I just bought this phone two days before after research.
Please let me know that what is speaker installed in this phone, only for ringtones! I think, speaker should be used as speaker phone (listen your call by using speaker.)
My last question is that we can use data cable for download the pictures and sounds? Is MIDI song installed?
This phone is very nice looking and good features.
After a long survey, I bought this phone. It really superb. Motorola has value for money, The price of this phone is really competitive compared to other vendors like nokia, samsung
i m finding difficulty in finding the option of delete all in the outbox messages section . and also help me out in forming groups having the selected contact list.
Feel free to mail me .
good,nice sound on the fm,but i have a problem...if i write sms,symbols and letters appear below and i want to get rid of them but i cant becoz im a nokia user,any body can help me....ty.. johnny depp
i have this phone.its good looking,stylish,battery is good but i don't recieve fm.it's wap system works well for downloading etc.but it don't have usb port which is not a problem because we can download ringtones,wallpapers etc through its wap browser.
I got this phone after a lot of research and is one of the best phones in its price segment. the radio is excellent and talking about the headphones they are good too. For the price like that, the other competing phones the one from Nokia and samsung having the same features are much costly and less stylish. the only problem is with regards to downloads form motorola website for the ringtones and wallpapers as they charge a wooping Rs.10 INR which is too much if you are a company supporting the product. although sony ericson has phones which are a bit costly to this but the memory on sony phones is only 12 mb and that means its of no use and again no radio, there is a camera but having a VGA camera doesnt make any sense.
Bottom lines the phone is excellent coz has all the important features that a normal users wants.
Talk, Listen, enjoy radio.
Motorola has raised the bar on the most basic entry level phones cos this mobile phone boast 3 features that are a bonus in the budget range of phones: it has a built-in FM radio, WAP and rather long battery life (over 9 hrs talktime). Retails at $128 without tie-up with telco.
looks is very good by seeing it only i decided to purchase.The model is worth purchasing in the prise band. Fm reception is very good.
hmm nice phone..in less price ,gprs works gr8,ringtones 32 instruments..colour is fi9 just like j200i..but the only drawback is fm reception is poor ..nokia 2300 is much much better in its fm reception then motorola c168
i purchased it for 3650/- its one of the best handsets i have ever seen , 3 games nice graphics ..only the minus is radio reception is poor at some places ..but sound quality is excellent
i will recommend to get this as easly as possible as its not heavy on pocket also..same model would have been costed not less than 12 K 2 yrs back..
quite good.i bbought it bcoz my nokia 2650 deceived me.really appreciate it: good functions, radio, messages.Moreover, it's very SLIM...
Hmm, names underneath and no edit method. Ah well, the names to the ones above what i posted ^.^
Ok, i dont know if anybody is still reading this, but i may be able to answer a few questions and concerns posted above. I do a bit of work with Motorola mobile (cell) phones in terms of modifications.
[abhilash]: The small symbols you see beside the battery meter, which is usually a yellow bell with squiggly lines around it or with a noise effect on one side, means that it is on the "Ring and Vibrate" setting for the first or the "Loud" profile. This changes the effects for the ring styles of the phone.
[hasan]: Yes, it has a built-in loudspeaker
[sri]: The FM reception is OK, although the squality seems to differ region to region. At home in NorthWest Australia it works great. While at work on a mine site it doesnt work too well however. My only problem with the FM radio is the fact that you cannot run it on the loudspeaker while playing the radio. That was a feature i liked on the Nokia phones.
[madhu]: Is your phone set up to use MMS and WAP settings? That may be why you cannot send or receive the MMS section of the message. Motorola phones receive MMS different to Nokia and retrieve the attached file seperately to the rest. Saves time and money in most cases. Contact your Service Provider about getting the settings sent to your phone.
There are sites around that assist in troubleshooting and if you are interested, modifying, your Motorola phone. Just use Google. Its the most vauable tool that you could ever come across.
Now, my opinion of the C186 is that is a very nice looking phone. Thats why i purchased it (I have a V3 RAZR and seperate CDMA phone for work as well). I found that the software is too basic, and they could have put more on it to make the functionality better on the phone. If the software was from the new generation of phones instead of old looking and feeling software then id be more impressed with the phone. Then again, i paid AU$99 for a brand new released phone, so i suppose i dont have too far to complain.
hey, I wanna buy this phone, but I m really disappointed that there is no JAVA :(, but however it looks nice :),
