Sometimes when I use the camera on my phone, I get an error saying "image capture failed!!" most of the times it works. Anyone seen this?
can u send messeges via bluetooth.lik txting but bluetooth and wats a good site 2 download stuufff for dis fone
Thanks for the reply , Rich. I got the bluetooth to work on our phones. You have to select the file youre going to copy/move to another device, press options, then manage, then to move or copy, it will automatically detect the device & start the transfer. Yay. :)
I have tried your solution for usb, but it still wouldnt work. Im positive that there's no memory card, I checked it myself..I guess Ill just have to get a bluetooth adaptor for my pc and a microSD..thanks again rich..:)
Are you sure you have no memory card ? the phone normally ships with a 32MB card (giving 64MB total). If you don't have one, it takes Micro SD cards (also known as Transflash) I think 1GB are now available.
If you go to the phone setup menu, you can check free space which will show if you have a card or not.
If you find you do, and you're getting the 'insert disk message' (which I often get) then keeping the USB cable connected, turn off the phone, then back on again and click on the drive letter, then it should work.
As for the bluetooth problem, there have been several posts here about issues, which may help if you have a hunt, but I have not had any problems myself yet.
oh man, I still cant get the USB to work. I put it on Memory Card mode (problem is, I dont have a mem card, so my pc says "Please put disk on drive G" Im getting a memory card soon. :) What card does this phone use?
I cam across another problem, my uncle and my mom has the same phone as I have, and we tried to detect each other's phones via bluetooth, but it wont detect our phones. How do I solve this?
If you look through the previous posts several sites have been mentioned, if you haven't already......
wats a goos site 2 download stuff for this fone. (themes and games) will be awesome if any1 has any info jst please post it. it will be veryyyy much appriciated by many peolpe. CHEERS!!!
Your camera USB cable should work, just set the phone to connect to the memory card direct. menu/connectivity//usb/memory card
You don't have to use phonetools for copying to the phone, just make sure the files are in the correct format. If you are running win 2000 or xp you won't need any additional drivers. Just open 'my computer' and the phone should display as another drive.
I just got my E770v from my uncle today. Its seriously the best phone I ever had, Ive been with Nokia, Siemens, Samsung and Sony Ericssons, but this one beats them all. The manual is in spanish, but I learned how to operate the phone without the manual. Its very user friendly. The joy stick is a breeze to use. Camera quality is really nice, and the video quality is good, although it could be better.
The only problem I have is connecting my phone to my pc. I have a digital camera usb cable that fits perfectly on my phone, but my pc doesnt recognize my phone. DO you guys have any drivers? Where can I download Phone tools? Thanks!
OK, so i'm having a bad day :( I miss read the post to which I just replied, so ignore it as a reply to the comments by SF.
But it's still a usefull tip for copying pics to the mobile !
I'll go and get some sleep now......
Just a reply to the last post about the quality of pictures. I found when copying pics using phone tools, it did some conversion which made the quality pretty much useless. The best way is to resize the picture on your pc and copy it straight to the memory card, don't use phonetools. Then you get excellent quality pics....
Great News… after 4-6 Upgrades on Motorola Phone Tools… last one being 82 MB, I was able to finally – with the new software version upload/download from Mobile to PC! Here’s the tricky thing about the Phone Tools… you won’t find E770v but if you select Generic GSM instead it will then pick up your mobile’s modem. From there on in it is easy going with the upgrades. Please note that each time you upgrade your phone tool your not quite there until the mobile tool changes shape to match your E770v. Meaning that on the PC it should be as you see your E770v.
The Multimedia feature allows you to transfer *.mp3, *.wmi & jpeg files to the Motorola E770v. And it sounds fantastic no need to download.
One downside I found was downloading my Pics from Mobile to PC. Quality was a lil disappointing but I knew that looking at the specs b4 purchase...
PS: If anyone finds out where to download the latest version rather then go through all those upgrades (some vary 11 - 30 MB).
I also brought this phone on the $199 special promo. What happens is - from what I was told by the supplier is that the "Mobile Phone Tools" CD is not shipped with E770v as it is a supplier choice - optional. To obtain this CD contact in Motorola or if in NZ: (09) 917 4797.
Still struggling to get the software working on my IBM PC...
Hey Guys, The E770v has no sound recorder, does anyone know where i could download a java aplication which will record and store sound recordings??, also if you have any other interesting aplications could you please post them here....THANKS
Da onli way i found bluetooth works for me is if i select da item i want to send go into manage den copy den bluetooth,sum1 hu is aving trouble wif bluetooth try dat out and write bac,plzz !!
Battery life is not very good, and some of the software sucks big time. Be VERY careful updating the phone book, there are several ways to make a mistake that will block access to specific contacts, and also block the recent history as well. If you add an additional number to a contact, which it allows, make sure that it's NOT the same type as another for that contact, if it gets 2 numbers as "work", then it will not allow you back into that record, and it also messes up the history if that number is in there. The only way to solve it is to find the contact that's not accessible, select it on the main screen, and delete it without opening it. That should solve the lock problem. Phone tools is no help in this case, as there are some serious compatibility issues with it and the E770V in the way it manages the phonebook. Another way to get screwed is to try to restore the phone book before reloading the music and picture files, if you have a ring tone or picture set in the phonebook, and the files are not in memory, the contact won't be reloaded into the phone. The predictive testing is strange, not as intuitive as the version I'd got used to on the (disastrous) V550 that the E770V has replaced after 3 warranty replacements in 4 months.
If using phone tools, be very careful with the SIM card numbers, it's all too easy to delete them by accident, and not that easy to reinstate them. Another gotcha is that you can't use a backup from (say) a 550 to restore to a different model, the format of the files seems not to be compatible, which is not a lot of help if Vodafone has just swapped the phone and all the numbers were in phone memory.
All in all, if the software was a bit nicer and not so flakey, this is probably a good phone, but with the serious holes that exist (I've already done one master clear to get out of problems, and I've only had the thing 4 days) it's going to be hard for it to be accepted.
