Well, I just bought the Moto MPx220 from ebay(hope that wasn't a big mistake) and I've read a lot of bad reviews on this site about this phone. Unfortunately I didn't read these views sooner. The good thing is I got the phone for $160.00 and the seller said if I had any problems with the phone he would give me a full refund. I hope this phone is worth the wait and $$. I'll keep everyone posted, stay tuned in the next few weeks.
im in uk using black sim free mpx220 on orange & o2 & not having any probs.the unit is great used without rushing the device to much even tho its fast.the camera is only ok & volume could do with a boost,, reception is full bars and it can do so much.battery is pretty good
I got a Mpx220 5 days ago and just a day ago it would not pickup a signal at all even today and it has been babied the SIM card is good because i put it in my N-gage and the signal was fool, What is rong with it?
please inform if the motorola mpx220 have a EDGE
I have had nothing but problems with my MPX220. I originally purchased a MPX200 a year or more ago. It started having charging problems and connectivity problems, so I sent it in to Motorola for repair and purchased the new MPX220.
Not only did Motorola tell me there was nothing wrong with my MPX200, but after 3 months the MPX220 now wont hold a charge and plugging it into the charge drains the battery half the time.
Due to my experience with these two Motorola phones and their lack of customer service in fixing my MPX200...I am loath to ever purchse a Motorola again.
I've had this phone for about 7 months now and the only problem i've had with it is a charging problem where something inside the phone burned out..I took it back to motorola in hk and they fixed it as well as giving me the lastest hk firmware upgrade..since then i've had no problems at although ringtones are a bit quiet and the camera isn't as good as other phones, though there are programs out there to make them louder as well as using wma seems to help a bit...it also seems like maybe there's sumthing wrong with cingular? because i've been using it in Canada with Rogers and i've had no problems
I have had this phone for about 2 months ive had it given to me i have the blk edition and love it to death wouldnt trade it for a treo 650 but da treo 710 ummmmmmmmm mayb but its a good phone n all some minior issues like sometime if you have the ringtone on high it goes on low by itself but all u have to do is just turn off your phone for about a minute and then turn it back on. i hav a sony clie ux50 but it just cant do what this motorola can do. but overall a very good phone especally if your a business person like me and hav a lot of schedules
I had the same problem. Basically the phone would only work when plugged into the charger. I took it back to Motorola service centre and they re-flashed the ROM - apparently it was a software problem, which they seemed familiar with. The process took about an hour, but it did DESTROY ALL DATA, so make a backup of anything important.

I’ve had it with Cingular, Motorola, and the MPX220…In theory its supposed to be an excellent phone, but in reality it fails to comply. Mine freezes up all the time, takes a long time to even look at my contacts, turns off by itself takes days off were doesn’t want to send or receive calls, would start vibrating until the battery runs out, wont display incoming or outgoing call numbers to make it short the MPX220 aims to disappoint. I called Cingular to see if I could change the phone for other make and pay the difference but was rejected. This is the 3rd phone I’m getting (2nd replacement) and I don’t know what to do. CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT COMES TO MIND, but I wouldn’t know were to start. any suggestions?
I have had this model for about 6 months now and I like it a lot. I have had occasional issues but nothing that I wouldn't expect from a Windows based device. Cingular is my provider and I get good reception. I would like to see a quicker response when browsing through the options and emails, etc. but it beats carrying my Palm with me! Good reception (partially due to the provider) and no mechanical or technical issues so far. I am in sales and I travel often, so I use it a LOT. Don't buy it for the camera though. Perfect for a good phone with email and calendaring that syncs with your Outlook.
has anyone bought thid phone recently or upgraded their firmware. can u tell me if thiis phone is still bad as old ones or ppl are just complaining. i'm really interested to buy this phone. will it be worthy give a shot?
I had the first release of this phone and really got sad with it. Now i have the latest and fixed version and averything works just the way it should. The camera get really really better. No more system breaks. Everything was fixed. If you have the older version, go right now to the motorola dealer and make the firmware upgrade. You'll be surprised. The only bad thning is that the "click" soud of the camera still can't be disabled. You can't take a pic silently. If someone knows what file to delete to disable that sound, ploease email me!!!
i just got this phone today but having a hard time to figured out: "how to change the chinese version (i am not a chinese people) to english version so i can read & use it" --
Trying to delete some of the files that came with the MPx220.
All I get is that it is read only and can't delete the garbage that came with it.
Is there a work around for this?
I just bought mine about a month ago. not too happy with it. t-mobile doesn't go very well with it. can't send mms. can't get internet. dont know how to configure it. i tried everything. camera sux. video sux even more. too dark. the power buttom got stuck on me once and it wouldn't turn on or off. i figured out how to change mp3s to ringtones, u have to move the file to applications folder under sounds.
My motorola mpx200 is frozen so won't go pass the motorola welcome screen when I turn it on. Meaning it doesn't get to the provider homepage.
It will also not turn off when I push the power button. I have to take battery out before it goes off.
Can anyone help. Please!
Thanks hell_fighter. Can you tell me how to change the spanish language to english? Mine is on spanish language too. Thanks! Feel free to e-mail me.
This phone is nothing but rubbish. I just bought it and it won't turn off. The screen freezes up. V635 is better.
