camera quality on this is very fuzzy and for a 1.3mp camera that is crap. i am getting a sony ericsson k750 as a phone for the compact size, 2mp camera and fm radio and i will get an archos pma400 as a pocket sized computer device which linux, touchscreen, can record from tv, wifi, 30gb hdd and lots of other stuff like pc games, emulators, movies, music, internet etc.
This phone is terrible. I bought it in January and just returned it. It would make a blender sound every five minutes or so and drop the call. The volume was so low it was unuseable both in speakerphone mode and the handset mode. I bought a motorola blue tooth car adapter that had the MPX220 listed on the box...but they are not compatible. For the $180 for the car bluetooth adapter I got a speakerphone with too low a volume. I am so pissed at motorola I can not contain it! This company has gone to Shit! I had so much trouble with customer service. I will never buy one again. This phone was a great idea, but poorly implemented!
does anyone here know where else to get the update file for the latest version aside from the motorola site which is unavailable?... if you have the file pls send it to my Email ad...tnx....
Love the phone, but can't get most basic function to work - hearing people and others hearing me. This "volume" problem seems ridiculous for a company making cell phones since dirt.
I love this phone...... for the most part. As everyone has stated the volume sucks on this phone. The other problem that I have with this phone is while I am on the phone talking and I get a voicemail/text message it plays the tune and vibrates in my ear.
Anyone know of a fix for this?? That is really fricking annoying!
I had problem with the ringtone at first. I went back to the shop and they suggested to download this Goldwave program where i can edit my songs and adjust the volume on it before you upload it to your phone. IT works out fine after that.
ive been monitoring this phone for a few weeks now, but so far some of the problems mentioned on this site has not surfaced. i bought this phone unlocked off of ebay, maybe its cingular and att phones that are doing it? the volume on the speakerphone works very well along with the ringtone... the volume and clarity of the mp3 player is unbelievable... however the problems that i have experienced seem to come from the OS itself. it freezes and did weird things when i first got it then i was about to agree with the users online when i started playing around with the settings, i freed up some more ram by turning off the system tray that runs at the top of the "today's screen" and my phone has not froze on me since. I do honestly believe that the problems orginate from the OS itself because the phone seems very durable... freaking MICROSOFT needs to check their shit before promoting anything.... i have to also say that i agree with the lackness of the battery life because the phone will run out on you if you use it really heavily, the battery will last a few days, however, if only calls are made. i give this phone a thumbs up for functionality and organization.....
Hi i was just wondering if anyone knew how to delete the program on it an install a different one, i have mac program and i wanna switch it to windows, give me a shout if you kno bye
i've had this phone a month now and so far i'ts a love/hate thang the volume sucks u can't hear the phone ring u can't hear your reminders or any alarms. without a headphone forget about the mp3 player. a wndows base mp3 player that can't even play internet purchase music such as Napster, ,itune and musicmatch downloads. and what's up with the 2.5 jack when every accessories out there uses a standad 3.5 and why the mini sd when a standad sd, or xd card is about the same size. on a scal of 0-10 i give this phone a 6
This phone has great possibilities. I hope Motorola & Microsoft sort things out. Wifi would round things off perfectly.
Would like to buy this phone, but now worried about the switching off problem and volume level. Has this issue been sorted?
Not too bothered about the camera.
I have been thinking of buying the MPX220, but its not yet released in the UK and maybe some of the problems with be soted when it does. I already have a pocket pc and would not buy this phone to replace it, just to use in conjuction with, as the pda with BT and WiFi is really fast at 400 meg.
Not too worried about a camera, have never expected too much from a camera phone anyway and I'm sure its better than my Sony Z600.
Bluetooth works great on the Z600 as well as volume levels, so would like these items to work on par. One thing I hate when buying a new phone is having to re enter my contacts. Active sync should solve this problem. I have owned a few Ipaqs and these have had some problems, but I have always sorted them out. Pocket pc's have been around for a long time and have impoved cosiderably, smartphones only a short time, so should improve with time.
This phone is truly awesome!!! It has ALL the features, great functionality, seamless quality and so much, much more in a beautiful compact form factor. Its only weakness maybe it fuzzy camera.
Is this phone a good buy or is it a gimmick? From the looks of it has a lot of great features and has a lot of possibilities. If this phone has a bad camera what are you comparing it too. Lets say a fully fledged digital camera or other cellular phone VGA cameras? What Phone would u suggest instead?
Ive had this phone for almost 3 weeks and its superb, no issues so ive read so many bad things but i guees its just bad luck mine is just wonderful!!!!!!!!!!
I wish you all have had my luck so you wouldnt say those thing about it......
On my third day now with the MPx220. As an organizer, it works wonders. Although I've had issues with activesync thrashing my ost and pst files, the issues were remedied, and all was well. As a phone, this thing is RIDICULOUS. So many times I've had to resort to using a land line, or borrowing someone's V220. Dialing out is always an adventure, the sound is so lacking, the quality of the sound reminds me of the cell phones of the 1990s, using a bluetooth earpiece will oftentimes shock you with a piercing feedback or buzzing noise, outgoing or incoming calls -- if you're lucky enough to connect -- takes 3-4 seconds to engage, so you're saying "hello, hello" like an idiot (recall the old verizon commercials), and I could go on an on. This whole experience reminds me of those unbelievably horendous days with Pacific Bell PCS. I left them at that time, and now I am really regretting that I have given Cingular a second chance at my business. Looks like I will be contacting TMobile or Verizon or heck even go back to Nextel with their stone-age phones...which at least worked.
i just got the mpx220 for 2 days, and now it turned itself off and won't turn on again, nor showing any battery charging symbol. Does this happen to anyone else? Anyone know what to do about it?
Also Sound quality is bad, 1 minute it's loud and clear, 2nd minute, it's impossible to hear. Very dissappointed.
Sounds like there are a lot of complaints about the volume, sound quality and the camera, how come the voting on PERFORMANCE is still so high on this site? interesting...
can some1 please email me on email@example.com about how to teach new words to the sms dictinary on the mpx220 i could not figure it out.
Also i am having lotsa problems with it the whole thing switches off or some times it just all turns off and keeps vibrating i have to pull the battery out and put it back in any1 having similar problems also i have to wedge pievce of paper back of the battery otherwise keeps turning off. i bought the fone over ebay and its a cingul;ar but i am in melbourne i contacted moto/aus but no respons do you's think moto/aus will cover under warranty>??
Would you buy this phone over the Sidekick II
