I am really liking this phone but soooo skeptical after reading all the reviews that talked about all the problems that the phone has.. Are these problems really all fixed with the latest firmware? How can I check the firmware verision on the phone and what is a tell-tale sign that the phone is ok and working properly that I can do in store (the store is a friend of mine's and he'll let me play around with the phone before I buy) Thanks guys!!!
Cant close it when on speaker phone
and ya cant record a phone call- both of these features would be nice like on the v600
it supports all: Wap, html, imode, xhtml, chtml, for pocket-pc optimized site, etc.
can i browse the normal web on this phone? or does it support wap only?
Thank you Frank. I am going to buy this phone tomorrow when the shop open.
If you haven't made your mind yet about what smartphon you'll profit most, MPx220 is definetely the very best. I know and I've heard about many poblems with the first versions of the phone, but I've got mine for a couple of weeks and NO PROBLEM AT ALL. I bought it in my country, Argentina, and it has the latest firmware update. I've had no problem so far. The sound is standard -v551 used to sound a bit louder, but this one is Ok to me. The camera is MUCH BETTER than v300/v551/v600 and v3 and more than enough to have a picture taken wit friends during a casual outinng -remember: it's just a phone. Windows Mobile capabilities are great and everyday there's new soft for Smatphone,which makes it more and more functional. MP3 player in your mobile together with a 512MB miniSD card... I can also watch THE LORD OF THE RINGS when bored or travelling! Perfect compatibility and Sync with your PC Outlook, so as to keep business updated. Besides, you can use it as a phone!!! One tip if you wanna try this mini-PC: YOU HAVE TO BE PATIENT AND OPEN to new tech, it's like learning some Windows for the first time. It's just what I needed for my job and pleasure. My advice: GO FOR IT. If I can help you somehow, just mail me.... I'll alway prefer Motorola rather than Nokia or else. To finish: GOD BLESS YOU, BROTHERS OF NORWAY!! I love that country, you know?
this tel is nice
MPX220 has some major problems. I originally purchased 2 of these and both had to be returned twice. Even after the ROM updates both phones had horrible battery life, constantly crashed, and at times would not answer. When the phone did work, the volume level is too low to hear sufficiently. The internet and MMS functions didn't work for months--and on one of the replacement handsets it started working right before the phone turned itself off and would not turn back on. This phone has been dropped by Cingular and another retailer Bestbuy. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. It does not work as promised and the updated rom does not fix the volume issues and created a further unstable environment. I have tried several windows phones and all seem to have operating problems. I would recommend buying a more proven OS rather than windows.
I'm having this phone only 2 weeks and I have to say that I am very satisfied.It crashed only once but it was my fault(I tried to open-close media player while it was in playback 10 times and it crashed the 6th time!).I 've had 18 phones the last 4 years including Symbian phones (nokia 7650,panasonic X700) and I can say that it's a good phone.Symbian phones phones maybe a little more friendly to the eye of the unexperienced user but windows have more combatility.For exemle a symbian phone can't playback a *.wmv video and windowsXP have windows movie maker that converts any type of video to *.wmv format etc.There are many factor that may cause a problem to a phone some of them is rain,water,falls etc.If water drops fall on your phone you my not notice the problem rightway...what I'm trying to say is that most of the users are not careful and after a short time when the problem is noticed thay think that this is not because of them(it's always the phone)is it?
As for the batterie,I'm from Greece and TIM here has a "package" of unlimited calls to 1
number with 4.10euros a month...so i use the phone at least 2h talking a day and 1 for playing games,watching videos,pictures etc.It's batterie keeps the phone open for 36-44h.When I had nokia 7650 I couldn't keep my phone open for more than 15 hours and panasonic for 20!So I don't want to hear anything about batteries.Also I would like to notice that before it's first use the batterie MUST be charged for 24h,but how many people read the manual I'm almost certain that 90% of those who said that they had problems with the battarie didn't(and...yes,it's the phone's fault again!)!
So don't complain about the phone if you are
not ABSOLUTELY sure that you follow the manual and that you are careful not to let it fall.
I don't wish to start a "war" between symbian and mobile windows' fans,I really enjoyed both of them and all i want to say is that this phone is VERY GOOD!(The camera is not so good,that's true,but everything else is almost perfect,for a smartphone..!)
Everything i wrote above it's true and that's why i used my full name,i don't have an email yet but next time i will write it too!
is there better for the same level of price (350?) ?
hello, can one modify files world and Excel from the keyboard of the mpx220? what is worth the video mode, and one can record for how long? thank you

after been round nearly every forum the same help,help,help question is been asked..how do you in the u.k. set up the phone to use gprs.There are thousands of settings all tried but wats happening and moto now have it stated on there site that some mpx 200 and 220 are firmware locked and unable to recieve over the air settings.Nobody at o2 ,orange and apparently vodafone can help nooone knows so why do they sell us it?expansys,dont know so skater 42,si dude anyone got thru to somone who can help and does any u.k. resident using an mpx220 on gprs actually exist.thank you

having no probs with function.its a bit temparamental but there is so much options and software in this unit.screen crisp,good battery,plenty to do but yes its a bit quiet and camera is not good but reasonable.9/10
Perfect phone.I have this phone about 6 months and have no problem with him.Great mp3 !!!
Pls Pls don't buy this phone. : 1.The thing turns itself off any time it wants to. 2. The microsoft OS crashes. 3. At times, I can receive calls and can't make calls. 4. Even when closed, the buttons will scrash the screen. Need I continue?
This phone is a terrible piece of junk. Worked reasonably well for the first few months. Now, I'm constantly checking to see if the phone is even on. Never been so frustrated with a phone before. I would bet some of those that are claming this is the best phone they've ever owned will be changing thier tune after a few months of use. Is there anyone wanting to change thier "best phone ever" view of this phone?
if your in uk the mpx 220 has the network settings in the phone ie: voda,virgin,orange,o2,t-mobile and work for phone and text but like my post earlier ive just bought it simfree from carfone warehouse £219.00 and the gprs is locked???now trying to get help quick seriously otherwise its useless.anyway today 05/08 2005 01.50am on this site bbc.co.uk/technology its say that 1 in 7 mobiles faulty and up to 6 months after purchase the faulty phone is the sole responsibility of the person who sold you it and not to be fobbed off.its good report
Hey, I am looking at this phone and there are lots of comments about it. I want to know, really, if this phone is worth it. I know there is an upgrade of the firmware of the phone and does it help some of the problems that I keep hearing about(what does it fix or any problems it creates)? I also would like to know is whether this phone is good with T-Mobile service(unlocked)?
