hi,i am a user of a motorola c975.my opinions about the phone is good but how do i transfer data from other phones to my fone because i see no bluetooth or infra-red facility on my phone.
Surprise 1) The data cable does not come with the package!!!
Surprise 2) It is not available in the market or on the motorola site!!!
This Phone absolutely SUCKS. I cant believe some people are saying its good (1/100 lol). The vga camera sucks, the reception is always weak, the wap is sloe and the mp3 player has low sound quality. I had it for 3 days, thought I'd make the most of it b4 taking it back, so I tried unlocking it, but IT CANT BE UNLOCKED. If you still have the reciept, take it back - Get a sharp or a Nokia.
for anyone wondering about unlocking, I had mine unlocked today, cost me £20 at a place I know in Glasgow.
Carnquay Mobile or something like that in Pollokshaws road on the southside.
I currently have my o2 sim card in it with full, unrestricted net access and its pretty sweet.
I seem ot have some problems getting my email to work on it, it just says "Connecting to Server" and seems to hang with no GPRs logo on activity bar like I get with I go online, so I dunno whats up with it.
when you get the 128mb card the recording time on the c975 goes to 3minutes
its great and betta than other phones people are jealous cause theyre cheap and good
the phone is a good phone but would be good if it had infa red does any one know where to get them unlocked on threepay for free,
heres a cool site for mp3 rintones www.mobileplayground.com
da c975 has longer dan 10 seconds video all u need to do is video setup so stop bad-mouthin a gr8 bargain phone big-up da c975
I have one question... Can you switch off "UMTS" signal and have only "GSM" signal, so that working only in GSM?
I hope that you know what I mean!
Thank you very much!
the phone is very useless! you can imagine a phone of the 21st centruy and its does not have any wireless means of data transfer......i think motorola was sleeping when the phone was made and 3 that branded the phone is also sick
Had phone for Xmas as needed one, got home and must admit Camera has some nifty features, the 2x Camera is excellent and in addition with the backlight works great.
The MP3 player is superb with a 128 transflash card. (Shame no headset)
In all any MP3 ch00n as ringtone is good by me.
Only gripe is battery life and also no communcations link, but transflash has an SD card adaptor so just use it on my card reader on my PC and hey presto Movies, Mp3s on me phone.
Good Buy in general, maybe a bit weighty but hey for the price and the features i cant knock it.
Now its time to get it unlocked and enjoy it even more.
good phone every things good but too much hastle for mp3 as i dnt know how to set it up and its annoying because i would like bluetooth ithought it had it
i like the phone,a friend bought it for me from uk.Pls kindly send the manual to my box. thanks.
this fone is quality i got 1 for christmas....has it got infared?....how do connect tha fone 2 tha computer n where can u get the stuff 2 do it from??
Craig - the phone DOES playback mp3's. Also, it DOES NOT have infrared. I have read that with a certain Motorola accessory cable (purchased separately and not yet widely available), the C975 will have a direct USB connection to a computer. Very convenient - especially for phone/PC synchronization. But you can get an indirect USB connection to a computer by taking the transflash memory card (also sold separately) out of the C975, and plugging it into a USB adapter which comes with the transflash card. For enough space to store a sufficient number of mp3's or anything else, you will need to buy the transflash memory card! I have a 32Mb card at the moment because it was cheap, but I have heard they can go up to 256Mb in size. To swap content in and out of the phone to your computer (Windows XP is probably required) you take the transflash card out of the phone (remove the battery, and then the transflash card) and plug it into a card reader that came with the transflash kit. This plugs into the computer with a USB socket. After doing it twice or three times, it is easy to do it in less than 30 seconds. A minute or so after plugging the USB card reader into the computer, it should appear as an extra drive on the computer and then you can copy videos and photos you recorded on the phone to your computer, and also copy mp3's etc, from the computer to the phone. On my phone the translash card has a main directory called "mobile" with subdirectories called "audio", "picture" and "video". Just copy the mp3 files from your computer into the "audio" directory and they should playback on the phone. You can also set an mp3 file to be a ringtone as well. But Motorola recommends a length of less than 30 seconds for an mp3 to be used as a ringtone. However, do not expect a very loud signal to come out of the headphones. For that you may need some kind of amplifier built into the headphones. I find it almost adequate however. In a busy shopping mall it is harder to hear above the din. You may want to get the E1000 which is a classier more expensive version of this phone - it MAY have better sound, check your phone shops. If you have the capability to make your own mp3's, I would recommend using a low bitrate of around 56kbit/sec, because the phone sound ain't exactly hifi. You won't notice the difference. You will get a lot more mp3's on there. With a 32Mb transflash you should get around 70 - 80 minutes (one CD's worth) of mp3's at 56kbits/sec. With a 128Mb card you can get around 5 hours worth. And amazingly - with the 128Mb card, you could also fit around 4 hours of the video that the phone can record - it's small - lousy quality video, but pretty useful to have anyway. It's great to be able to have any video at all!
can anyone tell me if it can have mp3 thats 1 of my strongest points for buying the phone, and also says itss got infra red has it :0? where can i get it unlocked :p plz some 1 tell me plz plz
