Interesting post, MotoMan, thanks! I have a C261 on the way from TracFone. question: until we can find a way to use a USB cable to upload pix to the computer, how do we get pix from phone to computer? Phone 'em in as MMS messages? How does that work?
Any help appreciated.
I will tell you everything that this phone ha to offer, it has supposively a 640 by 480 or something resolution but I think that it is much better than that, I think it might be closer to 1 mp. Also, you CAN get songs on your phone but someone who has a voice recorder can record a song and send it to you through mms. for tracfone, it will charge you 1 unit plus .5 units for every minute it takes to download. So I DO have music on this phone. just make sure that the mms is less than 100 kb because that is all it allows. There is no bluetooth but I am still figuring out how to activate it. I have found where the manufacturer put it in. Also, there are special effects to the pictures like negative film, every color is opposite and tons more. There are 3 games, football, plays just like fooseball. Then there is Rebels and that it just a space game, and last there is CRAZY and it is like the game tanks on addictinggames.com. It is a really cool phone but I wish there was bluetooth or infrared and I think there is a PC link out there but I still have to find it. If there are any questions, I will try to answer them. O yeah, 2 mb of memory. This is overall a good phone though,
my phone no is +2348030795239 i was unable to use the GPRS why? pls send me reasons why should be on my phone number +2348030795239. thanks
Battery life is shocking, despite the manual saying it will improve over time, I get less than 24 hours unless I leave the phone on charge for hours after it says charge complete! Next to no features, irritating menu setup, takes ages to respond to buttons being pressed. I was offered this as a free upgrade, and if I knew how rubbish it was, I wouldn't have let them pay me to take it!
Avoid at all costs!!!!
this is a great little phone, stylish and compact... but can anyone tell me if and how i can get files from my comp to my phone?
Found the link to pix, the first 4 were taken with the C261. Note that the first two were taken from a moving car, the next two were in poor, tricky light. The other pix were taken with other cell phone(s).
Also remember that like any small light camera, it takes practice to hold them steady enough in dim light. OK, link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jsgotangco/
Found pictures on i-net late last night, said shot with C261, looked pretty good- but I can't find it today. Will post link if I do find it again.
I ordered one from TracFone yesterday; in much of the USA, get C261 camera phone + 600 min for 1 year for $130, + shipping & tax. USA only, I think. Will post with first-hand impressions after using it a few days- reception poor at my house, interested to see if it will work at all here! ;)
how about the camera?its ok?clear or not?any disadvantange about this phone?can anyone tell me please
nice phone, with very good shape and colour, but very little functions, which makes it boring
Mobile is very nice. but mobile performance is very low. if user access picture,ringtone that is take time.
I like this phone becuse it gives lot of benefits within less price and it is so smart that u cannot imagine...Thanks Motorrola
I just recently bought the new Motorola C261. It does not contain Bluetooth,IR or most of the important features. But OH WELL its only a phone and a really nice one too. I recommend it for people who want a nice good looking phone. If you want a extreme phone, buy a god damn IPAQ or a freakkin PDA or something. Quit wining about it, its a mad phone. Thanks
The TEXAS INSTRUMENT DATA CABLE MAY FUNCTION IN C261 Cell phone check it out....

hey i find that the motorola c261 is a good phone . but i'm havivg problems setting up the internet. if any one knows how to do it pls email me
i've been using this phone for three months. unfortunately, during calls or sending group SMS messages, sometimes, it turns off then turns on automatically, somewhat like it's restarting. this problem started 3 days ago. i'm very disappointed. although the phone has a nice body and display, the battery life and absence of bluetooth and lack of USB support from motorola really sucks. please be noted that the USB drivers from the internet are not authorized by motorola so it may bring problems to your C261. just a reminder.
