the intention of motorola was to make a simple cheap phone ... and they did it a remarkable job
very very very very BAD phone
u cant do ANYTHING With it
no wonder the price was so low
I'm sorry to say but this phone is really really reallllly bad it's the stupitest phone EvEr invented! People should not sell those anymore.. You get headaches...
The best and the simplest mobile with the least of the money you can buy!
a friend of mine gave me a motofone as a Christmas gift
i really really like the idea of a simple phone - no camera, no WLAN ...
also i like this phone much more, than other simple devices (ex. 1100) because of the design, slim shape and of course the e-ink display with its huge retro alarm-clock type characters
i had some problems with it:
1. sometimes when i end my call while it's still ringing, because it's no answer on the other end, the operator name then the clock appears , but the speaker just keeps on ringing
2. out of the 250 contacts stored on the sim card, only for about 80 names are recognized, for the rest only numbers (the contacts were saved by a 6310i nokia)
3. i miss the setting for the loudness of the alarm, the melody is really cool, though
other than these, it's a really cool phone, i'll keep using it
As with the majority of motorola's the texts messages always end up "sending in progress" this phone is no different. To resolve the issue, delete the outbox and then turn the phone off/on and then the message should then go through
This is one of the best products of M. F3 reminds me what a phone is.
Here are some of merits/demerits
-very good battery backup
-No Hang/restart issues
-Excellent Incoming Voice quality
-Completely Insulated from dust
-And above all it is simple
-Code's (This is not real disadv..since setting change is not done offen)
Although there are lot of criticism about the usability of the F3, once mastered this would be best phone in its CLASS.
I bought it for INR 1000/- in Chennai. It does what it has been made for.
mine is about my motorola C119.it has failed to send text messages and l dont know what is wrong.
well ive had a ericsson w800 and no-kia n95 those were real toys (not phones) , but if i bought f3 it was simple phone, that i will use for many years if nothing will happen to it (like 5110 and 3310 were years ago). For those toy-features i bought myself a PDA.
F3: Good battery life , good design , extremly cheap, good clarity.I dont send sms-s so the upper-lower case typing difficulties are no big deal for me.One of the best mobilephone through ages.
I have this phone but i don`t know how i setup a clock and date same like the pictures for this phone.
if some know that please post me on my mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
