Well, I looked online at all these reviews before I decided to go out and buy an MPX200
I have only had mine for a bout 3 days and had a few problems getting it to work in Canada.
I bought my MPX200 from Ebay. I got a great deal on it, only problem was it was not unlocked. After getting it unlocked by someone here in Ottawa that does it called ImportCell www.importcell.com
I got it home stuck my SIM card in and realised it needed to be setup on rogers settings.
If you are looking to get the rogers settings working here is the internet info to allow you to use outlook and MSN messenger

Check the box that says Save Password.
At the bottom of the next step, for network, select The Internet.

Check the box that says Outgoing Server requires authentication as well as Require SSL connection.
Pick your own settings for the last two settings as to how frequently you want it to check automatically if any.
Anyways now that that is all out of the way,
I feel this phone has great potential but feel that the people buying it just do not know how to use it especially in canada, and out network providers wont give us an inch and tell us how.
+MSN Works like a dream
+POP Email retrieval
+Downloadable Themes, Ringers, MP3's
+Can Double as and MP3 Player
+Can Triple as a Video Player.
+SD/MMC Expansion Slot
-Aweful Reception (Rogers Ottawa)
-Confusing initial set-up
Overall I think once you read the manual for this phone and play with it a bit youll get it just the way you like it.
This phone had great features, but I think it's a little fragile. I had several problems with the motorola mpx200, like the buttons sometimes jam (numbers get repeated constantly), the phone crashed and I lost all my contacts (solved by linking to your pc) and now the headphone isn't working, so I can't hear other people talk. That 11 months after purchase....
The best phone. There are better phones of course in the world, but they cost a lot.
I have owned this phone for well over a year and have been constantly dissapointed with it. The OS is slow. It typically locks up or hangs for long periods of time - sometimes forcing me to pull the battery out. It also doesn't keep a signal very well - this could be due to Cingular's coverage, but I have seen folks with other non Motorola GSM phones on teh same network getting much better service. My girlfriend's BlackBerrry works in many places this phone doesn't, and we are both on Cingular. I could complain about this phone for a long time, luckily it is an old model and people probably aren't buying these things anymore. I just know the experience I have had with this phone is making me steer clear of any other Motorola phones in the future.
this phone is for people whu know how use it,if you cant work with windows,you wiil be easy to use mpx 200. sorry for my english, i m from Bulgaria.I have this phone and i think is verry smart.
I like this Phone cause it's very professionel. However, I still can't play some audio and movie files. Please if you know about any application that I can download or a site that can provide such player,email it to me. Thank you.
