For silent mode, Just put the volume down all the way. (Press down button you'll see)
You can get the manual in english (and some other languages) on motorola.com
To activate silent mode you have to press down until you read "0" and one more time to put on the vibrating.
No double calls managing on this phone from my experience.
For those of you needing the ENGLISH manual.

john, 18 Jun 2008For those of you asking for the english user manual I sent it to all those in the first 3 page... moreHi!!! Could you Please send me a copy of the user manual for the Motorola F-3 cell phone in English????? Oh, Please-please-please???? Thank you so very much!!!! Have a FABULOUS weekend!!!!
For those of you asking for the english user manual I sent it to all those in the first 3 pages that posted your email address. I love this phone I get over 7 days standby and I have not stopped playing with the functions since I got it. Now that I have fully recharged it I expect to pass the 7 day stand by mode with a few calls. I paid 39.99 plus 8.00 for an extended 2 year warrenty.
Its a great phone for what it is. i love it because it isn't overloaded with a bunch of junk I don't need. It's cheap so I switch it for my Rizr if I'm going to be doing something physical or might damage it.
The SMS isn't as painful as people make it out to be, but my messages are generally under 40 characters. I've been using TAP for so long that i'm just as fast on this phone as my Rizr. If you have unlimited texting because you need it, get something else.
It gets a really good signal for not having an external antenna. I also like how the clock is displayed all of the time similar to the v300. I hate having to fiddle with buttons and lids on other phones to see the time (might as well wear a watch instead?)
It does have poor visibility at night and doesn't have bluetooth, but who cares for $25!!!
However, i would not get this for teenagers or anyone who has to have the newest fanciest stuff.
It would be great for someone not familiar with cell phones, or already has gizmos that do music, photos etc on another device.
Its a phone, it makes calls, and does it well.
This is the worst phone I have ever seen! It doesn't ring most of the time, the voicemail won't let me check it or erase once I have heard the message. It just keeps repeating and plays the same message over and over. The battery life is short. Overall, this phone is the worst phone I have ever had and would not recommend it to my worst enemy!!
ycay, 17 Apr 2008i think this is a great phone but can someone email the instructon in english to me i need it ... moreI have the same ..could you send me the English version to, when you get it ,,Thanks in advance,,Ghis. firstname.lastname@example.org
THIS IS ALMOST A WATERPROOF MOBILE
This phone is for users who need a cell phone only to make and receive calls, occasionally do an sms and need an alarm clock everyday in the morning to wake up.
Thatís what this phone does ten on ten.
The battery is great though takes over an hour to charge.
Though I have not tested it I guess it would last at least 4+ hours of continuous use when on phone which is good I guess for almost anyone.
The phone is ultra thin compared to other models in itís price band and in a trouser pocket it does not make a bump as other phones do. It is as good as having an empty pocket.
Thought the phone is a big phone almost 3/4th the size of a standard TV remote in length with equal width.
Size Dimensions 114 x 47 x 9 mm
Weight 68 g
The finish of the phone is fantastic and very neat
It certainly makes what constitutes a good buy.
There is this fantastic website http://www.indiaplaza.in where in best deals are available to buy cellphones or rather any product, they guarantee their prices are the lowest and take a delivery charge of only Rs 45 and cover almost every city in this country.
This is a great place for eshopping of phones
HEY I AM EDITING MY ARTICLE HERE WHICH I WROTE THREE MONTHS BACK TO SHARE SOMETHING OUTSTANDING WITH YOU GUYS
Three days back I accidentally dipped my cell phone in the water for almost 45 minutes.
I came from jogging and since this phone is so slim I forgot it in my track pants, and dipped my pants in the bucket with soap water and forgot I had kept the phone in the pocket.
As I realised that I had put the phone in the water I rushed to take it out from water, the screen was still showing the time.....
However I immediately took out the battery and the SIM card.
I then called my mobile dealer and he said just keep the phone under a study lamp whole night and in the morning it will work fine.
I just could not believe it, he said it so calmly and he was absolutely sure the phone would work in the morning.
So I told him still Iíll come and show you the phone and he said no need the phone will definitely work.
And guess what in the morning when I switched the phone on, it worked like usual.
I made a few calls, charged the phone and it is still working.
So this is an amazing product from Motorola, firstly it is so cheap and then on top of that itís almost like a water proof phone - in the water for 45 minutes and still working !
If you are considering buying a phone in the lowest price range go for this phone ...my recommendation.
In case come problem comes up later in this phone due to this water dip incident Iíll sure put an update about that in this article here......
almoast perfect phone. only normal software is missing ;) that's my choise ;)
My Phone has just gone silent i have done all the manipulations but it only vibrates and when i choose the ringtones it continues to be silent please send me an email let me know if there is another operation to be performed such that i can know what to do but i believe the phone is very portable though it doesnt have functions like radio and games please i will be grateful if this problem can be solved
i have the f3 fone because i read on the internet reveiws of the good volume ,and also rings loud,which in my opinion make this fone excellent , BUT unfortunatly having only had this fone 6 months had to take battery out on number of occasions because it froze (nothing worked not even the time)and also the text messaging is quite awkward on some points. and all the ringtones are awfull ,which make it embarassing when it rings. but this fone is only priced at around £6.00 its excellent in my opinion just for the call quality.

Iíve got one of these (Iíve had it for 6 months), and it is FANTASTIC! Even though itís not a popular phone model in Thailand (it was made primarily for India), Iíd love to have about 3 of them (the price is so low).
I highly recommend it!
*The battery life is good.
*The sound quality is great!
*The signal reception is good.
*The durability is great! (I have dropped it several times, and it has survived.)
*It is VERY user friendly!
*The display is BIG!
*The ringing is LOUD!
*The SMS messaging needs more characters. :(
You can get english instructions on Motorolas website.
I don't believe the phone stores any of your information on it. Instead it just keeps everything on your sim card which means the number of phone numbers it can store is based off your sim cards limitations.
I owned a Samsung t519 before this phone and honestly I like this one much better. It gets rid of all the flashy (useless?) features and shitty menus and makes the cell phone a cell phone again!
The screen which uses a new technology called e-ink is amazing, way better then lcd's in direct sunlight. It's almost like you're actually reading something on paper, it's really weird. It also doesn't suffer the bad view angles of an LCD. The limitation is of course it doesn't display color (which means no pictures or videos) and it doesn't do much in the way of animations. In fact I wouldn't really use this for texting either.
It's durable, has great battery life, easy to use and it's cheap. This is the phone for people parents, children, people who broke their phone out of warranty and want something unlocked, a backup phone, or like me someone who hates todays horrible menus on phones
