Ok it is a smooth phone, I have one but... but it has its limitations -
You cannot programme the speed dail which options only the first six numbers on yoiur SIM which you cannot re order.
The speed dail is limited to the first 99 numbers on your SIM card (which hilds over 200 numbers)
You cannot edit or erase any sim number once it is in the phone
Apart from that it is a great piece of design, the speakephone is excellent and easy to use, the battey life is good but nothing like claimed.
All in all a real value for money phone if you want it simple, no camera, no games, no wallpaper, no music.
Its back to the future!
AWESUMMMMMMMMMMMM i luv the phone fell frm the 1st floor started working even better was in the swimming pool with it and works as good as new good 4 the ones who jst want a phone not a gadjet which robocop carries nice phone try breaking it ul fail
is it easy to write and read messages with the f3?
when you send a message does it go in the send folder? and if if does is there an option on the phone to stop it?
It looks like such an awesome phone - almost perfect - until you read its specifications. LOL. It's a joke. Disappointing for those who fell hard for the looks, only to find it doesn't have a brain.
this phone is like a kids toy.flimsy and not particuarly easy to use.what are motorola playing at????

Answers to a few questions:-
>can any body help me in finding how to ON/OFF the speaker phone - i mean i wanna listen to the menu options......
To activate speaker in a call, press the up arrow twice when the speaker icon is displayed. Press again to cancel. To turn the voice prompts on, dial ***510* up arrow (or 511 to turn off). Or pull the battery so it asks you the startup questions again.
> can anybody tell me how to forward a massage in this stupid phone?ill give u tis one as a prize
If you mean SMS, you can't. To forward calls, dial the GSM codes for you network operator, e.g. shown at http://www.mobileshop.org/usertech/gsmcodes.htm)
> Is it possible to increase and decrease the volume of the ringtone on this F3? thanks
At the main screen (no icons showing - if they are, press the red key), press up/down on the joypad to set the maximum volume. This will also select silent, silent+vibrate or max volume+vibrate. All F3 tones, prompts and alerts volumes start off quiet and are ascending - this cannot be changed fro safety reasons. The F3 uses a single speaker for calls and ringtones. So a loud tone could easily damage your hearing if you were holding it to your ear at the time. Hence why more expensive phones have a separate ringtone speaker on the side or back.
> does anybody know how to program speed dialing ?
Just press and hold the number corresponding to the first 10 slots in your phonebook.
> My MOTOFONE is locked... I cant install a SIM card because it wont work. It always shows the error sign, and never has signal. Help me...
> Help, please. Why is it that i got an error (the X at the top) when I try to make a call? Also, the antenna signal is dead. By the way, I was using using a SIM card from another cell phone.
You've probably blocked the SIM by entering the wrong PIN. Get the unlock code (PUC) from your operator and unlock in another phone.
can any body help me in finding how to ON/OFF the speaker phone - i mean i wanna listen to the menu options......
the hardiest phone i found, it may work even if a car run over this. your child will not be able to break it. this is phone to make calls, not to impress others or show ur status. it has very battery life and powerful antena.
hello can anybody tell me how to forward a massage in this stupid phone?ill give u tis one as a prize

its not a bad phone , but its not the best to bring off the name motorola . its kinda wierd to understand and very difficult to catch upon, especially for someone who doesn't know much about phones. however people dont like it cause they think its a slvr L6/L7.
If someone know ..please get answer.Is it possible to increase and decrease the volume of the ringtone on this F3? thanks
