hi..everyone. Am interested in this phone especially like to try out the Linux OS but after reading many reviews...guess that this phone isn't up to my mark... low battery usage...bad reception and terrible for sms(howardchui.com) anyone has any comment?
i know you guys will found this crazy or even stupid but how do you make calls on this phone, i want to buy it but i can't see nowhere how to make phone calls
does anyone know which headset is compatible to listen to radio, mp3 & call? So far I see HT820, is there any others?
I'm wondering is there a better battery I can purchase to use with this phone? The standard battery life is way too short for me.
I tried to reformat my vids using the software provided. It still doesnt play, later I used PSP Video 9 to get it all in mp4 format, and now it plays great. I have feature length movies I can watch on the bus!
Just wish I have a bigger SD Card.
About the card, only SanDisk cards have this configuration in them, where u can just pop it out, without data lost. For other brands, its better to go to the toolbar-menu and eject the card from there, before poppin it out.
Its just good practice.
You need to convert normal video files(e.g., rmvb, mpeg) into 240x320 RealVideo formats using Moto EzX Video Producer, which is included in the CD(in the package with the purchase of this fone).
i've bought this phone for 2 days and i start to get bored...
not like symbian, that has many 3rd party apps, it has no support from any 3rd party. but if u like the standard features, thhis phone work great.

sry 4 my english
Nice phone love the music bad battery life though with stereo headset bluetooth on lasts for around 4 hrs other than that nearly perfect.
+ it has Linux OS and for ppl like me who believe is open source means i can tinker with it. Just waiting for the warranty to expire first :D this is a bloody expensive phone.
btw THIS PHONE DOES NOT EDIT WORD OR EXCEL APPLICATIONS IT ONLY ALLWS YOU TO VIEW THEM WITH A PIXEL VIEWER.
Does any1 have a software to help me with editing as well.
for this fone, its a linux base fone, if u want a more powerfull fone, try to choose which really a PDA fone, for this fone it only has a PISCEL software for only viewing OFFICE file " word, excel, powerpoint, acrobat " but u cannot edit the file on it...
look for PDA phone which are window based, i think it suits you more...
I wanted to know if any of you have downloaded applications (other than games) for this phone? I am thinking of purchasing one as it is one good deal for a PDA phone, but I wanted to know experiences of people installing software. I would be using this mostly for business (Outlook or Thunderbird for e-mail, something for word processing and reading) and just wanted to make sure it was capable of this before I purchase it. Your help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Bout your prob, I also did not encounter such prob with my 1G SD card, I did not also format my SD just start using it, cud u try to use other SD card brand like tracsend, etc? do you eject your SD card properly on the menu before you pull-out your SD to avoid data loss or such problem? if it still persist ask moto bout the case...
Need help urgently!! This is a nice a phone with great functions after using ab 1 mth+, But i do encounter problem with the SD card. I had bought two SD (512MB)card fr Kingston. I plug in one of the SD card and start using w/o formatting but during tat one whole mth, i do encounter data lost&unstability of the SD card, causing my phone to hang/lag when i tried to open files from the menu, which i had to off the phone to stop the hang/lag&restart again. I've reformatted the card using the phone function but problem persist! I've called Kingston to check out the problem, they agreeded to change a new card for me but somehow i feel is the phone filmware problem/bug. Now i formatted and plug in a brand new card to monitor whether haf this problem, but somehow or rather this problem came back juz days ago, prompting to reformat my SD card out of nowwhere(lucky no data lost this time). I've asked my 3 other colleagues who had E680 whether had this problem but they told me they neber encounter this problem, one of them even didnt formatted his 1G SD card & start using. And until now he neber encounter data lost.
Can anyone help me w this problem????
Did anyone of u encounter this problem??? Urgently required your sincere advise...thanks
This fone is just fine w/me, I only comment on its Battery Life, if I listen to my MP3, I need to charge my cell again maybe twice a day... coz a 3Hrs talk time would not really last for a long MP3 listening..
About the movie, I already watch movie on thisa cell phone and its great, with its wide screen, hehehe, pretty cool
I advise you guys load a movie in .rmvb or .rm formats, if dont cant find any, try to rip .dat, mpeg, mpg, avi to .rmvb file, it willl reduce one VCD file from 700mb to 70mb only, and if you have a 1G SD card like mine, you can store a lot of movies...
After using this phone for 3weeks i am now bored of this phone. The thing that i didnt like is the camera, video and the Linux OS, everything else is excellent. The Linux OS is pretty bland and boring to me, I dont have time to full around with Linux. Sure this phone has a lot of features, but some features are outdated like the vga camera/video.
Unlike phones like Nokia this phone doesnt really have any fancy application/features thats available everywhere unlike the Symbian OS and the Windows Mobile OS phones.
If you dont mind the vga camera/video and the Linux OS, then get this phone. I didnt even last a month with this phone, theres better phones out there for the price of this phone.
When messaging, there are options for keyboard selection or handwriting. Both are ok, although the handwriting is a bit laggy.
Does anybody know why PHONE TOOLS cant be installed onto a Windows ME OS? Any support I can get from Motorola? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
i love this phone, but i have a very noobs question. when u r typing a message, is a touch screen qwerty keyboard will appear or any keyboard? or it use handwriting like O2?
Hmm, not sure if this might be of help to you, Nickel, but maybe the format of the movie has to be in MPEG4. I am about to get the E680i too, and really lookin forward to seeing movies on it, etc. But if its goin to be a technological hassle, it would make me think twice..
how can i play the movie from my MMC card?? as i can only play the mp3 from it but not the movie! it said the media parameter exceeds allow limit.
can any one help me?
When the screen is blanked, and the buttons are locked, pressing the button on the top left side will temporarily activate a clock display.
