I think this is a neat little phone. It takes great pictures and it is pretty sleek. I am not a big time cell phone user so this was perfect for me. I bought a double minutes card and I pay less than 8cents/minute. Like I said..it takes goos pictures and I just send them to my e-mail. This is a greta phone for people who do not use a lot of minutes and want something stylish and useful
re:-02-10 08:43 P@di -- sir, i did try your suggestion, sending it thru email but still failed? whats ur email ad agen? hope anyone can assists me in this common issues? thanks
DO you think that this phone would do well for someone that dosen't talk much on it maybe 1 unit a day. I already have one and have looked around and this looks like the best deal, is it really that crudy?
HI! many ppl have confusion on how to download pics to computer--well i got data cable(type SKN6233B) and software CD with my phone--first you have to insert the CD in the DVD Rom drive and download the software--then it asks for the data cable connection which you then connect to USB port of PC and handsfree port of phone--click Album icon on PC screen and follow instructions--thats it
i got this phone under the tracfone service...and i was wondering y i couldnt go on the internet. plz help...thnx
I got problems with it after 1 month use. Battery didnt last even 4 hrs. It's the second Motorola with problems I. If you want a good phone, don't choose low/medium Motorolas! They are PAIN!

I have this phone and I hate it...suddenly it says no service and when u restart it puff there is...it a very cheap model no bluetooth nor infared ...well, its all I can afford...it's nyc
In response to the two questions below me:
Send the picture to your email. To do this make a phonebook entry, but make it email instead of number. Fill it out and save it. Then go to your picture you want to send, press the menu button and press "Send In Message" Type your message (if you need one) press "Ok" go through your phonebook until you get to your email address or number you want to send the picture to. Fill in the rest like the subject, and press send. It takes a while so don't freak out. Hope this helps.
(P.S. I did this with this phone in front of me so its accurate.)
ok, somethings yall should now about the motorola C261 and Tracfone. The Motorola C261 and most other GSM (sim card) phones have really cruddy reception. U can send picture messages, and if u cant u dont have at least 3 bars, AND U MUST ENTER the area code and the number, no matter if u and the phone u are sending the picture (or text message) to have the same area code. And yes, tracfone has a mobile web browser, but you can ONLY visit tracfone's website which is your home page. I got in a couple of fights over this, I called them 20 times (I counted) about the mobile web browsing, and 12 employees (who need to improve their English speaking skills) said that i could visit any web page, and 8 others said I could only visit tracfones. One person transferred the call to their "supervisor" so many times it ended bak to her again, and she told me they just transfer the call to any available representatives. At least she was honest, but I no longer participate with anything related to tracfone. I would syggest if you are going to go prepaid, stick with net10, and if they say no service in your area, it does not matter, net 10 phones have free roaming, so you will still be charged 10 cents per minute. Or, what the most resonable choice would be, is switch to a CDMA carrier (who have WAY better signal strength than GSM) such as alltel (i think) and U.S. Cellular--- im with them. visit the web page at http://www.uscc.com . Another great option to check out is Helio. But if you want cheap great prepaid, go to U.S. Cellular. although they do not support roaming with prepaid, you can still text while roaming.
Email me, anyone, if you have any questions with any mobile device, with any carrier and i'll be glad to assist you ASAP. Thanks, and have a great day. E-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org (not hotmail)
My daughter has the the same problem that all the users advertise here.She took photo but cannot send it me please advise how.
I've had my phone for about a year (through Tracfone) and I love it. I am just now replacing the battery. Yes, it takes pictures, but there is no way to transfer the pics because there is no internet service available with Tracfone (that I am aware of).
