Gary, 11 Feb 2010this is yet another poor phone from motorola. the battery life is hopeless,you cant bluetooth ... morei agree with you regarding the issues i raised. and like to add it can't support flash player.motoblurtech is fantastic..bur donno regarding the information security.
Lately the OS has been very buggy, I'm feeling it all has to do with the expected March release of the 2.1 upgrade, it's going to blow every phone out of te water just like the Cliq did when it was released. Whether you do or don't use or need Blur this phone will rock your world, and until we get the Motoroi (XT720) it will stay that way.

Sometimes, it even freezes when I just go through menus! This phone freezes so much, I'm debating on getting a cheaper one and use it instead. I love the features on this phone though, just wish they could fix the constant freezing problems with it.
Hands-on with the Motorola Cliq XT for T-Mobile's Android line
I could not figured out how to send chinese character sms. When i forward the chinee sms but the receipient receive empty sms.
i want to know if everyone else has been having problems like after getting a text the phone just freezes for a little while then you get the choice of force close or wait. am i the only one or does that happen to other people. ive even deleted apps to make my phone go faster. nothing is helping.
Gary, 11 Feb 2010this is yet another poor phone from motorola. the battery life is hopeless,you cant bluetooth ... morePoor battery life? Compare to what? Other touchscreen phones with 3.1 inch? Which make / model did you compare with?
No Bluetooth transfer was NOT designed by Motorola, who started to offer such feature as early as its A760. The problem lies in the Android O/S, which Moto didn't develop. The Android 1.5 is KNOWN NOT to support Bluetooth file transfer. But I heard rumors about Moto would offer upgrade to Android 2.0 for Dext/Cliq soon, which will solve the problem.
Same goes for the MP3 player. Moto has made great phones with good MP3 capability like E1/E2, but again if you can name one Android phone with good MP3, let me know, then we're comparing apples with apples.
For the apps, did Moto ever develop any of them? Why blame Moto?
And why don't you mention about the good sides of this phone? Its Crystal Talk technology is still unmatched by any other brand in this world right now.
So the Cliq/Dext works great as a PHONE, but if you want a multimedia device with CRAPPY PHONE capability, yes, do recommend you go somewhere else.
this is yet another poor phone from motorola. the battery life is hopeless,you cant bluetooth pics and videos to another phone, if you use speakerphone you have to have the phone face down to hear it, the free apps are just poor rip offs of the i-phone apps, the sound quality through the headphones is rubbish and there is no flash on the camera. Avoid this crap phone at all costs
this is realy good phone and the price is very good
this is realy best buy
and beter than all samsung and lg phone's
Motorola CLIQ Getting Android 2.1 in March ?
that the Motorola Cliq will receive an update to Android 2.1 in March. Yep, you'll be able to enjoy the beauty of Android 2.1 next month! This follows the news that the Droid will be receiving the 2.1 update sometime this week, so it looks like Motorola is getting all their devices on to the same Android version. The Motorola Devour, which is supposed to launch with Android 1.6, should also be able to update quickly to 2.1 since it runs the same Motoblur UI as the Cliq
does this phone use mp3 ringtones for text alerts?
how's thje ringing volume overall if i'm in a room with running appliances?
And now Motorola is coming out with a upgraded version of this phone next month called the Zeppelin. Its going to have a flash for the camera. No physical keyboard tho. Everything else spec wise is the same.
Ive had this phone 3 weeks now, only crashed twice, im very happy with the phone although the touchscreen can be a little un-responsive, overall the main flaw is the heat the battery gives off.
When you turn the phone on, you do need to sign up with a account with motoblur. But you dont need the internet on at all times. Its really only for the facebook myspace etc pages. You cant skip it. Thats unless you get it rooted.
