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.
THANKS LUSIF, for a very nice and short Review of the fone, it was really helpful in understanding the new display technology. and i agree with some ppl, cuz if U need all those high-end nice features, then better spend more money :) in Pakistan its for 2800Rs (launch price) and i hope it'll b comin down soon. Still, a nice work from Motorola, intresting thing is URDU and PUNJABI menu/instructions :) and in Pakistan this set's got SPEAKERPHONE (Handsfree) also, i wonder why they havent mentioned that here.
Follow up for some questions I've seen on this phone, and yes, I can guarantee the asnwer as I'm holding it on my hands right now:
* It DOES have vibrate mode
* You CAN turn off the voice guides.
* You CAN turn off the key sounds
* It DOES accept headphones
The CONS you can read in my previous post...
I've just bought one today and here is my cons:
* Can't receive a 2nd call while talking or make conference calls. (That's pretty bad for me, as I'm always using that)
* Don't have auto-lock feature, so you must lock the keyboard manually everytime.
Hope this will be fixed in a future version, maybe F3b or F4 ? :)
Excep for that, it's a great phone. I'll keep using my old nokia 1100 for a while, it's the only phone that has enough battery for me. (I can talk for free, so you can imagine how much I use the phone)
gr8 phone i ever see before........& prices are too affordable.........anyone can buy tht phone...........& its totally ruff n tuff......i m sure going to purchase it........thank you Motorola.........u rocks.
moto fone really shocked the customer who r very tendive abt motorola this is a really cheap product which moto ever produced
it,s not a moto it is a slim fhone and it,s price is so less then it,s qualities
Now what the fuc_ is this???
This is 2006 (soon to be 2007)!!!
Is it possible to bring out such a.."phone"?
There is something wrong with this model.. I mean have you guys checked out the VK2000? VK Mobile can squeeze so much into such a small body, why cant Motorola do the same with this model that has practically Z.E.R.O functions in the first place. I mean come on! Motorola you're supposed to be the RAZR you know, remember? The thin lines etc..
Basic cellphone yes, but why such HUGE Dimensions?
I thought it will be a good phone but it starts from $139, and from that mioney a v70 is much more worthful i think. And I heard that therre will be a cdma version of this phone, I would be curious :D
Hey, guys u need mp3,fm,exp mem, etc under 30dollar?hey this is meant for those who want a second phone and those who cant spend much!! if u want all that features in a phone and still cant spend more than 50$ nothing can be done..... spend more to get more!!! ok?
