Any mini USB cable will work (can be bought for a few pounds on the net). You don't have to have the Motorola software to transfer files to the phone (but it does allow you to sync Outlook with the phone). If you read through the posts on this site there are many expalining how to copy files from PC to phone without any additional software...
I thk your usb cable will work ,i have the phone to ,but so far still dont use the usb ,i must buy 1 to,but by reading these post here i get a good site for you what will help you for surehttp://www.project-e770v.com/project-e770v-help/project-e770v-help.html ok i hope i help you ,greetings a e770 fan:)
Have had this new phone for about 2 weeks, and everything seems to be working fine. However, I'm a little annoyed at Vodafone talking up the phone, and the 'free memory card' blah blah, only to find that i have to purchase the USB cable to make most of the features actually work. ...and that will cost another $70! My Canon camera USB cable fits, but will this work or does it need to be a Motorola usb? Vodafone also send to download the software from the internet, but I can't find it anywhere. Can anyone help?
I'd better write my email 'couse of my last post:
please help (I don't know anyone with another e770v)
Aparently no one has had the problem that I've had with my e770v.
I've had it since last christmas and, lately, it became somewhat slow so I decided to take action and erase all sorts of files I had put in it (music, games, etc).
Then I erased some hidden files from the memmory card. The phone was alright again... Until I turned it off, and back on. It wouldn't go past the Vodafone welcome sign.
Since then I've been using the phone without the memory card and they both work ok, independently.
If anyone was so kind as to send me to my email all the original files, hidden ones too of course, I would be most obliged! thanks, tiago
i have blue tooth but my e770 wont let me download anything. or what software do you need for usb
To anyone having trouble synchronising the motorola e770 all you need to do is update the phone tools program eventualy after many updates your phone will be detected
My phone has had many of the problems listed,
voice dialing not working
voice dialing not recognising
went to vodaphone who made it better but stopped it from roaming so it only worked in 3G areas
now I fixed that only problem is is cannot find my bluetooth head set, it finds other BT phones just not my headset.
Any ideas most welcome
Awesome phone, bluetooth finding others is a bit off... You must... Go to the file you want to send, go to Manage->Copy->Find Devices..
Got 64mb flash and 32mb on phone... awesome stuff!
I have a big problem when trying to synchronize with Outlook. My version of Mobile Phone Tools doesn't recognize the model E770v and I got all the updates with no results (heaps of models but e770v). The Bluetooth services seldom work and trying to synchronize with the standard BT services says that the phone doesn't have the PIM sync service.
Any idea about how to synchronize it?
If your having problems with your camera try reformating your memory card it should help with some problems
I had same probs with bt connectivity. Solved it by selecting file for transfer and selecting options..manage..copy..bluetooth..find device. You should have no problems finding other devices now.
For all those who dony know how to to download from your computer this is how
1. you need to bye or get a usb cable and memory card for your phone
2.turn off phone and insert memory card the booklet that came with the phone will tell you how to insert the memory sard
3.turn phone back on go to usb in connectivity and select memory card as your defult connectionthen plug in your phone
4.make sure your pc is on it should then atomatically install as a removable disk dive the go to my computer you should see the removable disk drive then double click on it and onpen the file
5.when this is done minimize it and go to where your music is storedopen that file then maximize the one you minimized befor and click and drag the selected files to the removable disk drive when done click he small icon in the the bottom right corner safley remove hardware click it and it shold open then click ok and stop then plug your phone out and go to usb and select defult connection put it back to data and your ready to go
USB CABLE CONNECTION TO PC
Maybe i can help. I bought the Motorola USB PC220 cable (+CD). Then installed the software included on the CD, and updated it. It has that function somewhere on the interface (settings i think). It downloaded 2 updates, one of which 52MB. After that, it recognized the phone and works fine now.
HELP ON: SCREEN DEFECT
A few days before i installed the software on my PC, something odd happened. So i guess it's not related. My screen shows a permanent white line. Is it possible to solve this alone, and how... or do i have to call support?
Can someone please HELP MEEE !! :)
I bougth e770v in Germany for 99.5 euro in Vodafone. It has 32mb integrated memory. I havent got any usb cables, software or additional memory card or anything. Now, can anyone explain me how to connect my phone to PC via USB. Do I have to have a special USB cable (i tried using usb cable of my camera). When i connect the cable and set my phone options (connectivity/usb options) to memory card I have a new drive in my computer but when i tried to open it, it says insert disk in drive. But when i set the phone to Data connection then i get no new drive. I tried to use some software but neither one could recognize my phone (it asks if i connected the MA CABLE to phone). What is MA CABLE? Someone please help! Thanx
now... keep in mind that phones flash(firmware) depends on the country...
my e770v(spain) works perfectly ALLWAYS!
BT works great
USB works great
i have 512MB TF card and it works great too...
i love the USBheadset so funny...
better go search for upgrades before complaining
I have this phone since Christmas, and was very enthusiastic for a while. But I got more and more disappointed as I encountered erratic problems.
1) From time to time, after customizing a contact (ringtone or picture), it loses the name-number association, and I have not yet identified the specific combination of cause, neither after exactly what it recovers the association back.
2) the recent history (received/made calls) got apparently lost: I could not access the lists any more. After making a reset, I got back to the initial configuration without losing data (phonebook, pictures...), and the problem is only half solved: the received call list is there, but I can scroll it below the contact shown in one screenshot. The made call list is still not accessible.
I contacted Motorola on the web, they think the phone can be faulty, and suggest to carry it to the service.
After reading the related opinions on this site, I suspect it is more a problem of VERY BAD SOFTWARE. Since I work in computer science, I know that there are good and bad sw. Good sw wouldn't let users to inadvertently mess up the phone with improper inputs.
I suspect that even by reloading all the original sw and memory, problems will rise again sooner or later in the future.
What do you think about?
Probably not as much an high quality phone...
