Geting your k1 to work with the computer so you can put mp3 ringtones,photos etc on your phone or vice versa heres how you do it. If u have a memory card for your k1 you need a usb cable the kind u use with a digital camera nothing special, now u will need the driver I will attach site to end of this post.now on your phone in settings\ connect \usb settings\ change from data transfer to memory card. Ok install driver plug in and go if you dont have a memory card you will have to download the latest motorola phone tools to connect I think its 4.0 or over for this phone.The Driver sites are: http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/Motorola.html or http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/au/support/driversNplugins.asp?country=aus&language=ena
your memory card slot if u have one is under your sim card, yes I said under, silly 2 have it there but thats where it is.
I dislike this phone a lot. i am a die hard nokia fan. and i switched to motorola krzr k1 as its hard to find a nokia model i like with my service provider... this k1 is frustrating having to always scroll thru my contacts to get to a name, it doesnt have a short cut by typing a few letters of a name. my text msgs have disappeared and i didnt even have 40 accumulated, nor did i use the option to auto clean up. my keys tone turns on and off whenever it wants to. the personalized ring tones i have set for people change on their own as well. i never know what to expect from this phone anymore. one thing i know, next time i will be returning to my nokia phones. this k1 has a few other quirks i cant stand. only had it 1mth and i already hate the thing.
I am trying to set my sound recording as a ring tone. I don't seem to find an option to do that. My son has a RAZR and we can set his up that way because on his when you record sounds, it goes directly to the list of ringtones ont the phone and you can set it as the default. However on my krzr, when you record a sound it goes to "my sounds". There are a couple of options when you bring up the sound recording but it doesn't have one to put it as a ring tone. Any help? Don't know if it matters that it's through Verizon.
This is truly a good nice phone.. after bought it i flashed with monster pack and the sound is awesome.don't have any scratch or any faulty yet.already 5 month old.. love it.. im planning to change to gold housing to make look more luxury.
verygood phone but unable to download videos and photos from my motorola k1 to my pc can you help me
I just got the KRZR for 3 months and no problem with it so far. It has been very reliable but the camera has some work to be done. But overall it's a good phone for the average Joe.
help plz i have a motorola krzr k1 pone but ther is a system error problem in it wen i record sound its not store and system error com on display my no is 923339380163
iv'e only been using my k1 for about 4months and it's ok so far. im not experiencing any of the problems that i'm reading about here, it doesnt freeze up or anything. if your phone freezes up it's probably because ur internal memory is almost full that's why it's advisable to store all your big files like music or videos in the memory card. i upgraded mine to 1Gig. and regarding the problem with being able to use mp3s as your ringtone you just need to change that through settings then ringstyles then details. you dont need to transfer it to your phone memory, even if your mp3s are saved in the memory card you can still use it as a ringtone. the only thing that i dont like about it is im not able to create folders for messages that i want to save separately, probably because im used to being able to do that through my nokia phone that i had before. oh yeah and battery time gets used up easily when i listen to music. but all in all it's pretty good and looks nice too.
I do not recommend this phone. It's crap, if you're someone who texts a lot, like myself. This phone does not live up to texting. Hard to text cos of small buttons.
Please help me!!
I bought this phone from Vodafone Ireland who advertised it as not having a memory card slot but having 256MB internal memory. i thought that would be plenty but am finding the memory is getting filled easily.
This site is saying there is a memory card slot and only 20MB internal memory, so can someone please confirm to me which is true????????????
I received my KRZR K1 as a gift from my cellular company and believe me,it's the most
incredible phone I ever saw or had. It's truly
I got this phone June 2007. It has been a nightmare! About 3 months after getting it started to freeze up. When it did that there was no volume on the phone at all, no ring, no number tones, nothing. It would go days like this, no calls no texts, nothing. The only remedy is take out the battery and restart it. That would only solve the problem temporarly. On occasion, it wouldnt send text messages right away, but rather wait a week and send a bunch all at once. Not good for the dating scene!!! I contacted AT&T and their solution was to change out the sim card. That didnt work so they sent me a new phone. That didnt work either, since the phone they sent me has the same problems. They are sending me another phone! According to the phone warranty the policy is to send you the same make and model until the phone actually works properly. My only solution is to pay for another brand of phone outside of the my wireless contract. I highly recommend NOT getting this phone!
I have had this KRZR for a year; I was not too pleased with it at first, but it has grown on me. I had 2 RAZRs prior the KRZR, I liked some the features of the RAZR, like the huge speed dial memory, it was 250 or more, the KRZR has 9 speed dial presets. I also liked text messaging features better on the RAZR, at the bottom of the screen were a list of words you could choose from, the KRZR you have to scroll through a list of words. The camera is much better than the first RAZR's however, I am sure they have improved. I do like the large memory of the KRZR but there again, the new RAZRs have improved as well. I do like how slim the KRZR is verse the RAZR or my last 5 Nokias. I have found it hard to find a cover I like, I think this is due to the lack of popularity of this phone in the US. I have resorted to using “palm pilot” screen protectors on both screens and camera lens. I have had some luck with Krusell brand covers on my RAZRs but as to my KRZR, I had a Krusell cover on for less than 3 months before it tore, my second one has not been much better.
As for my personal scale of 1 to 10, I give the KRZR a 6.
Good luck with your KRZR
sorry for my last post i mean take out memory card not sim card* to force phone to save .mp3 internally
just FYI if you purchased this phone in Fido and has a R47121_g_08.01.11R S/W there will be no way to use your .mp3 as your ring tone. Now if your SW is lower than R47121 you can use your .mp3 file as a ringtone via bluetooth transfer while your sim card is absent from your phone this forces the phone to save it internally. However, for S/W R47121 there is a hard way to get this thing to use .mp3 file you must edit your current .mp3 file name to match of that .mp3 ringtone that came with your phone you will need P2K program to do this.
To find out your S/W version press *#9999# on your phone keypad or shutdown your phone and restart it by holding *,# & power button at the same time.
I got this phone exactly two months ago and I'm not impressed. I like that you can easily place MP3 files on it. The camera isn't too bad on it, and mine doesn't seem to have the slow problem most people's has. Mine has a problem with the numbers wearing off. I admit, I have nails and I text a lot, but I've never had a phone within 2 weeks start having all the numbers wear off. Also, when I am texting, the backlight on the number pad flashes off and on. The front cover is a great idea, but they break SOOOOO easily. Would be a much better phone apparently if they had a nice cover that fits it well. Only covers I've found makes them hard to shut and doesn't cover all the buttons on the pad and drove me nuts. Taking it back to US Cellular today to find out if manufacturer will cover the button problem, at a minimum.
I just received one KRZR K1 from my friend
in UK, but i dont have the soft weare or the
memory card i will be greatful if you can
send me proforma invoice cost and freghy to
I have found that this phone is extremely slow and freezes up a lot. It does not allow you to put your mp3 as your ring tone and with the camera having glass over it I always have fuzzy pictures. I did learn that if you release the battery and put it back in it will speed it up for awhile.
