Decent phone, except Motorola doesn't let you upgrade the OS, so mine was obsolete as soon as I got it. It's still stuck on Android 1.5. Never buying Motorola again, they lock your phone so you can't upgrade the OS, and then backtrack on their promise to release Android 2.1.

RobRoy1, 04 Jan 2011I have Tmobile and am interested is getting this phone. But I only have a basic data plan. ... moreDO NOT GET IT WHATEVER YOU DO! Mine ive only had it since July and it messes up and it shuts off freezes drops calls the texting is slow it basically SUCKS dont get it and if you do youll regret it!!!
1st phone died after 3 days (ELF) Early Life Failure according to Motorola. In the 1st 3 days I downlaoded a compass app from Android Market. The Alarm Clock no longer worked. I did a factory reset at request of motorola tech support. Alarm worked but would not play .mp3 as the alarm sound. Again I downloaded the compass app the alarm no longer worked. I removed teh app the alarm stil did not work. I did another factory reset. This time I calibrated the internal compass without downloading any apps. When I turned the phone off it would not turn on again. Motorola said ELF. It was replaced 6 days later by my service provider (OPTUS). New phone exhibited same problem as original one. Alarm clock worked until I downloaded a compass app and calibrated the internal comapss. A factory reset on the new phone and the Alarm misbehaves. When selecting an existing alarm to edit the screen goes blank for 15-50 seconds and no menu appears to allow the editing. When adding a new alarm the default 8am time is set and no way of editing. A factory reset on the new phone and the alarm is working. Should I calibrate the internal compass???

This is one of worst phones ever. i dont even know if i can class it as a phone or an "annoy machine". I am trying to make a simple phone call and i have to setup an account first and without the account there's NOTHING else you can do. I feel like throwing it into the wall
consultation, anyone know if you can update the version 1.5 that brings the android phone? and as I do, thank you very much from Argentina

The part regarding the lack of a manual. I do agree when I got my first Android phone...the Milestone, last Feb. Though isn't such being the "industry standard" nowadays? If you get an iphone, there is practically no manual at all either...not even one regarding how to use itunes and NOT to sync over to the computer...
I bought this phone in Aug/2010 I have regretted it ever since, it is not user friendly, most of the things you need to know are not in the manual or on the phone menu, after a few months of use the microphone will only work when it is on speaker - cant make private calls. My emails sometimes come to my phone sometimes to my computer. there isnt a way to copy the messages from the phone to the computer. Crappy service at motorola since the tech help doesnt even know how to use the phone either. As for my provider rogers, they are equally usless - I use this for business purposes - it was sold to me as equal to the Iphone. I have been so busy not able to return this hunk of Junk - and just today my screen went on the phone. I will be returning this phone still under warranty and going to a black berry - I highly recommend you DO NOT EVER BUY THIS PHONE
RobRoy1, 04 Jan 2011I have Tmobile and am interested is getting this phone. But I only have a basic data plan. ... moreI was sent a new Motorola handphone MB501. Is this phone using Android system? What are differences between non-android system, please? In terms of cost, will Android system absorb more cost on my payment, please?
Your immediate answer appreciated. Thanks
can some body tell me how to use zoom while video recording in this phone....

I have Tmobile and am interested is getting this phone. But I only have a basic data plan. Can I still use this phone without getting a more expensive plan? (No Android plan for now - too expensive for me.)
The mp3 player is shit. the battery lasts about a day if u don't touch it and u turn off all the apps. Camera is not great and the video recorder is absolutely terrible no zoom available. Internet browsing is pretty good for the processor. The screen is a good size but the touch response is really quite sad. trying to scroll down a page is a near impossible task. It gets super hot after over 10mins straight use on games and just browsing and after about 5mins on a call.
Overall I got an alright phone free with a $19cap but I wouldn't go buy it if I had the choice
does anybody know how to load mp3 music to motorola quench from my itunes collection on my computer please help or send directions to email address email@example.com thank you cheers.
