I got the mpx220 the phone is not but the storage capacity is the problem. I don't know if any body can sell the miniSD card slot. Am intrested.
MPX220 sound quality is horrid.
I have firmware 188.8.131.52
Cingular in California
Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition
Version 4.21.1088 (Build 143184.108.40.206)
I have gone thru two MPX220's and both are very poor in sound quality.
I have to watch it while driving to catch any calls.
And when I do I have to pull over, roll up the windows and have everyone be real quite so I can hear the other party.
Its un resolvable even with "hacks"!
and Motorla tech/ Service/ Wrranty help is a nightmare!
This phone is confusing too much features but volume and battery life sucks they should give the razr v3 the mpx 220 features and give the mpx 220 the razr v3 volume
I've had this phone now for about a week and so far, it's a love/hate relationship. The phone's audio quality is something that could use some improvement. I had a Nextel I95cl before; the speakerphone/earpiece volume on these were so loud that you could wake the dead! The volume and speakerphone even when set to Outdoor seemed under-powered. The upside is volume through my Jabra Bluetooth was fairly loud with some "cracklink" in the backround.
Picture quality for the 1.3MP camera is a joke. Music coming out of the speaker phone sounds all right, but were back at the audio problem again. No lockups since, but considering this is Windows Mobile, it's all a matter of time.
Not bad considering I got the phone brand new with the Cingular box for about $100.
How can you tell if you got the 2nd edition of the phone or the 1st one that was recalled? The volume on my MPx220 is a little low, but not too low. Yeah, the camera isn't that good with a lot of noise. Oh yeah, if I do have the recalled version, can I trade it in for the new version?
i have had the mpx220 for about 2 weeks now and the biggest problem is the volume. Even with it turned to outdoor the loudest setting it is still 2 low. I like the mp3 player and the web browsing but if you get it and get media net get media net unlimited because i had 2MB and after 1 week of browsing cingular said i went over my browsing limit by 5000 kbs and its gonna cost $25. My activesync doesnt work properly but i can still put files on my phone from the pc. The camera is good to me since i dont expect a camera phone to work like a digital camera.
So...ive been thinking about this phone quite a bit and i was wondering if i should get it. I like all the features, space, etc. but the camera issue is a bit of a downside. I wonder if these things were fixed...should i get it?
If not, what Moto phone is best out there at the moment.
1) Easy synchronization using ActiveSync.
2) Fast Processor.
3) Amazing Reception.
1)Poor Camera Quality
3) Phone Speakers have some kind of scratchy sound even if they are not turned too high.
* The question for any interested buyer is "Are you looking for a PDA/phone or PHONE/pda..." The Mpx220 is an eligble candidate for the second part of the question.
I have the att brand with .343 Rom. I heard that its is the same version of updated Rom as cingular 1.3 . The volume during call is still low and have lot of noise. It feels like the speaker is not able to handle high volume. The ringing volume is also disappointment. Camera is better then V220 and other low quality cell phones but if you campare it with equal quality brands then its a disappointment. The back light of color screen is very bright and the black color gets fade out and looks very cristalise. I had MPX200 and if i campare both of them then i will chose MPX200 over MPX220.
i love this phone, its great... the ONLY problems ive ever found with it all have to do with bluetooth...
1) while using a bluetooth headset you hear a little bit of noises on your side, if you can ignore them, great for you!
2) it takes about 6-8 seconds to connect the headset each time, some other phones take 1 second (ie v551 for example)
3) person on other side says they hear a small echo of themself while using a bluetooth headset
4) voice activation doesnt work over a bluetooth headset
i have tried all this with mutliple different bluetooth headsets on this phone, it has to do with Microsoft Bluetooth Stack, it needs some updating... its not the headsets fault.
can anyone tel me if this handset plays all music files or just mp3 n aac?
yes the internal screen is 65k but there is an option to get it to 256k instead and the external screen is only 4k not 65k sadly. hope this helped.
I hope, that someone ius able to help me; I am a little confused. Till know I was in the opinion, that the mpx220 has an internal display with about 200+k and an external of 65k!?
Even the german support of motorola send me pre-information some month ago; and it was also written of the specifications above...Know I have an prospect and the display does only have 65k(the internal one!)
Are there differences between the models of the different countries or what´s up here; I do not get it...Thx for your answers...Greetings from Germany
