1) It has vibrate capabilities
2) LED backlight
3) Box/tube says GSM 900/1800
4) It is not seeing T-Mobile where I am located in the US. I am going to head into town to see if it's just my location. Seller on eBay said it'd work with T-mobile...
4) Nice... will never effectively use the text capabilities, didn't get it for that.

Hi Luis (email@example.com)..
The phone is only 900 & 1800 & thereby would not function on 1850 Band. Also all phones nowadays auto switching between bands. So if your phone supports a particular band, it would automatically com into that mode.
I had to sell of my phone at half price today :(
I was really really tired of typing messages which you cannot read in full in one go & plus no outbox.Also no distinction between received & missed calls.Plus one thing is for sure that Moto's claim for 900 mins Talk time is fake ! My phone on full charge lasted only 100 mins of talk time ! I think this one is going to get some bad rapport for Motorola. Also this is the first MADE IN INDIA handset..
Lost INR 800 in 10 days .. Really sad...
I found this fone very good. I like it and it is a next generation fone ok. so plz vote it.
Motofone looks like a calculator which is *also* a phone. The way its display is with its 2 rows of old calculator style fonts, it should be priced at 20 US $ or less. Sure the display has a cool new technology called EPD instead of LCD but come on, this isn't a high-school project to have an ancient style 2x6 char display.
For 40 US $ Motorola ought to make the display atleast similar to its C118 phones (multi-line array of pixels) which retail for 40 US $ too but are an older design in terms of their body.
Hope these suggestions reach you Motorola.
motorola will be launching world's smallest phone which will measures 5 x 5 x 1.1 mm in the year 2010 and along with it they are going to give one Microscope free.
I just need to clarify this- Will this phone work in the US? I read below that it will not, but I don't understand this given that the phone works on GSM 850/1900 and GSM 900 / GSM 1800 which both work in the States (Cingular and T-mobile).
if someone offer me a free handset of this sure i'll say no. i tell u all guys dont go for this handset. Mototorola pls stop production of this handset.
dont buy anyone on this handset. last week i bought one and within one hour i gave back to the handset. The display is f****ing yaar. i dont know why motorola launch a handset like this.
I got the phone couple of days ago. Price is very less (Indian Rs 1600) so is the feature.
- User cannot differentiate between missed call and attended incoming call from call list.
- User cannot have call duration for any number in call list.
- NO Calendar, NO Reminder, Limited Ring tones
- NO outbox for messages. User cannot save message as draft. NO T9
- Phone has NO memory for Phone book or Messages. Everything is stored to SIM card.
Otherwise very stylish and simple phone; so don’t expect much from it. If you have already used mobile having extra features, you can have this phone as secondary phone not your primary phone. Phone is meant for first time phone user with phone use limited to make/receive calls/message nothing more.
However it is (less) value for (less) money.
For those who got the MOTOFONE:
Is there a backlight for the eInk ClearVision display? I like the high contrast big display but it would be useless in the dark without a backlight.
i think it is bets mobail in this price but its memory is too low and louder is not too loud i hope motoorlla will be launch its new and more usefull virsion but but its grear affort vry smart desent and good loking phone plz improve the memory
This phone looks nice but has the most stupidest menu layout. The moto engineers needs to get more training on human Interface and the menu layout. If MOTO is targeting this phone for mega markets like India/China/Pakistan then they should have known better that there is high illiteracy rate in these countries and the menu is like a 70's calculator. Long way for Motorola to learn from its competitors. Stupid Engineers should be fired who did the UI of the phone.
hi can anyone tell me what about SMS is it readable can U send and recive SMS on this phone. and how it looks like in clock style display
Hi:) I read your posts on this phone and was hoping you can help me. I have purchased a Motofone F3 in New York City and I am having a problem connecting the phone to my network. Motorola US can't help because the phone is now being introduced here and they do not have tech support for it. I need help changing the network settings on the phone. I have read the manual completely and do not see instructions on how to go about it.I need the change the GSM band from 900 to 1850 Please help me. Thanks -Luis firstname.lastname@example.org
This phone does have an auto lock facility.. please try & use the code ***260* OK and to switch the option off use ***261* Ok.
However the lock gets activated in 5 seconds ! & there is no option to change that. Two it does have a vibration alert. Three, there is no calendar & calculator! Just amazing how Motorola did not incorporate these basic features. Lastly, no way you can see your sent messages, you can only view your inbox. Also no way you can change the font size or change case..This is really a tiresome phone ! however that's all one can expect from a phone worth $40.
I am extremely unhappy from the outcome.
