Does your phone display the date under the clock like the one in the picture? Is there a setting for it?
Its batter empties within 36 hours even if not used. Is it normal ?
I still like this phone but it's a pitty that it does not sound the alarm when it's turned off and does not have the snooze function. I am not shure that I will be able to use it for daily routine.
I think this phone is great, it provides just the basic functionality that in fact is all you need from a phone, looks great, and it's cheap.
Just bought the f3c yesterday n love it...it really is simple, very simple. Had 2 get used 2 at first because we all have already been get used 2 technology. Perfect match with my a1000..;p
it cannot receive sms from siemens c65, and who knows from other phones too?
It's a very unique phone, thin and unusual display, good only for making an outgoing and incoming calls but it sucks for sms..
I found this fone is lack of features for "fun" but heck what do my parents need that feature of? They only need big, I mean REALLY BIG, letter on the screen and a good loud voice and ringing. No need for sms, just incoming and outgoing call will be perfect. :) therefor I think this is the best fone for them. Dont hate it so much for its not designed in your taste. Many -old- folks still appreciated it for the simplicity. :)
great phone for older people. free in romania, nice look too. but the light in the dark too poor.
It's nice if you go it 4 free I got one whit loiality points from Vodafone Romania looks nice but don't try to do any thing whit him just talk
F£ is designed for developing markets and has some good ideas. But for UK it is poor value compared to low end Nokia, or to the basic Alcatel phones sold at Woolworths or Orange, which are attractive, smaller, colour screens etc. I was going to buy an F3 at fones4u(for my mum)but the one offered did not work. And I thought it ugly and clunky. It is not a cool fone, not a fashion statment
The best thing about the Motorola Motofone F3 cell phone is its beautiful design.
That is the only thing about it that is good. Its worst feature is the extra large font size of letters that make it such a nightmare to read and write SMS messages --- in the process defeating the purpose for which its was supposedly designed to achieve: simplicity.
They should make an F3i with a 10 color display (pixel display) with slightly smaller characters. Nothing else, same simplicity, same low price. VERY NICE ~!
What was wrong with people who designed font for messaging? They should have had their eyes and sense of design (or luck of) tested. It's the most ridiculous font I have ever seen. Don't ever buy one!!!!
I'm not really sure why people complain about the feature of this phone as it only does phone calls & text messaging, that's about it.
It looks cool & cheap. Ideal for young kids & old folks whom having the hard time reading or hearing. Not the best phone out there but it's brilliant!! I'm going to get one for business calls only.
Simply the most simplistic phone with the most basic functions.
