The mpx220 has been nothing but problems from the first day of purchase. I bought two of them at the same time--big mistake. Both phones continuously lock-up and power themselves off. At times they ring but will not answer displaying a message "cannot answer call". Neither one had internet access and after repeated visits to the cingular store (which confirmed they were set to the proper proxy settings)it just started working. Maybe my area didn't have the service. The volume of the phones is so low you cannot hear a conversation. I have exchanged them twice for replacements and am now awaiting another warranty exchange replacement for both of them. I would not reccomend buying this phone. It cost too much and it appears to have factory defects in design and programing.
I have never been more frustrated then I am with this phone. Oh..and that "Not Tech Savy" Comment left by Steve A. Shut up you pretentious jerk. I've owned other smart phones...this one sucks. Seriously...every time I pick up my phone I should be checking to see if someone has tried to contact me. I shouldn't be checking to see if the damn thing is still turned on. And if it isn't I shouldn't have to jerk out the battery and put it back in to get it to boot. And since I'm on the subject of "things I should expect from my expensive cell phone"... I shouldn't have to worry about the date resetting to 1/1/2004 two three times a day. I shouldn't have to worry about answering a call and having the sound be almost inaudible forcing me to reboot the phone. I shouldn't have to worry about my phone randomly decide it can't find service when I can see the damn tower out my window. Tech savy...please...let's see what you would do if your computer randomly shut down and you could only boot it up by pulling out the power source and putting it back in. To sum things up...don't get the phone. Motorolla has pulled the rom update down so if you don't have the latest version (like myself) you're screwed. I get no response from them so it looks like I'm going to have to take the hit. I'm going to wait a little longer to see if they release anything because this phone has great potential but I can only deal with these "bugs" for so long. Hmmmmmm...did I use the term "bugs" correctly steve?
ive read a lot of your comments.... all i want to know is where can i get the download packages for free cause ive heared that all problems of mpx 220 are solvable for example the volume of the sound with some extra download which are provided by microsoft mobile...so in conclusion can anyone tell me exactly whats the web site where i can find all the softwear(free upgrades if smt like this trully exists) that i need for mpx 220 mail me firstname.lastname@example.org thanks for help....or if youre able to provide me some software ill also thank you for it...
Hi all. Im about to buy a Mpx220 to use in Brazil (TIM). Does any one have a good opinion or problems that have had in this country with the Mpx220? (Can send me a e-mail in portuguese).
Thanks a lot.
I have just started having problems with my MPx220. The call volume is too low. It freezes up from time to time. The new problem is that it just shuts off on it's own!!! Battery life is not that great either. Also, they do not make a belt clip for the phone.
for blaming you.
But I also have to RTFM before posting.
The poster I meant is one below ayomoses and saved his nick/name from us. Very "brave" indeed.
obviously there are not only sh_t mobile phone producers but also sh_it mobile phone users.
I had my share of phones better yet user interfaces (Nokia, Nokia S60, Motorola, Motorola WM2003,...) and cannot understand people lamenting about the UI of Motorola.
Only one comment here:
RTFM before you try to use your phone or at least get informed before buying one and stop bothering other people.
Super phone! I like this phone very much.
I have never had so many problems with a cellular phone in my entire life. Going onto my third MPX220, first one froze up permanently, sent me another one. Second one I lost and the only reason I am getting a third one is because it is the cheapest option. It freezes constantly, turns off by itself, slow programs, sound is low. short battery, flash doesn't do the job, lot of light to take pictures... and when you are in the middle of a phone call and call waiting goes up when somebody else is calling you, it freezes up and you can't answer the other line. Worst phone ever purchased!!! I plan to move onto a different company far from Motorola once I save the money.
..........yesss nice phone with great functions....but i need extra battery,can u help me out..ayo
hi Luiz Neto , sorry to hear your sh_t phone Mpx220, and even more sorry to hear you are waiting for V3, except for the look, it's another sh_t phone. Motorola stills has many failures and shortcomings in their user interface, they are making things real complicated. you have to put alot of imagination to GUESS where the designers put all the functions and Where exactly you should go to adjust diff. settings. why are they making us to guess? what?
great!but i want to buy batery,where??i'm in vietnam.Please contact me.thanks
Can I put my mpx220 in spanish???? can you help me?? i don't have any drivers or any software to my phone... please
I hate my phone, the software crashes all the time, it's slow and the camera quality is very poor.And i had 2 of this. Fortunally i have a corporative plan that allows me to change my phone every time for anyone i want! Thanks God... My V3 is coming soon! This week i think!
i love this phone. currently i'm in Jamaica and everyone out here loves it. the only problems that i'm having though is the fact that it's difficult to get the internet connected onto the network out here. The video camera is smashing but the picture quality of the camera itself is somewhat poor. Aside from that i gladly recommend that everyone gets one.
Love my phone!! Have had absolutely no problems so far (been over a month). Amazing features, but the only reason i got it was b/c of the mp3 player which is great. Can play music for about 8 hours before the battery dies. I bought the 1 gig miniSD but was only able to load about 520 mb does anyone know why? Any help would be appreciated!
i am in jamaica and planning on purchasing this phone but i see where they say the firmware needs to be updated can u say anytime soon?
I love this phone overall... As for a camera, not so great with Firmware 1.30... As for a MP3 player IT ROCKS in stereo... The audio problems others are experiencing, I have had few. Any phone, computer, etc. can use a reboot every now and then. Again overall an excellent value @ 169.00 with a free bluetooth HS850 + month of service credit for audio inconvenience until firmware 1.43 is flashed. I am writing this review on it... I love the GPRS modem pass through feature. A GREAT PHONE!!!
This is the best phone I have ever owned.
My only complaints.
Would like a louder speaker when playing mp3 from medai player.
Cannot use voice dial from bluetooth headset.
(Headset was included in the box :))
1 second delay when accepting calls.
No note app.
Camera isn't very clear. (not to bothered by this though)
I purchased a mpx220 in Jan 05 from a cingular corp store with a 2 year program. 3 months later the software became defective and cingular agreed to replace the phone under a warrenty program.Was suppose to ship within 24 hours if i paid $8.00 which i agreed. 30 days latter no phone ever sent, status per cingular web site is In Process, repeated phone efforts revealed a backorder status, all cingular stores pulled from shelves and are not sellimg.Repeated efforts to contact cingular were unsuccessful. I have a $400.00 defective phone, a new $200.00 lesser phone which i critically needed for business and Cingular will provide no honest or accurate info as to what is going on. This is a relatively easy isuse to resolve or certainly improve with customers and cingular has failed miserably. I would like to find a phone co who values customers
