I had the same problem/s VERY VERY BAD software I had 3 v8 and all of them with the same problems and not to mention the battery it's amazing how motorola can sell a battery with that kind of lifetime really a pain in the ass...but the good thing it is only the design nothing more... thankfully i sold it and bought the sony ericsson k790 and i LOVE IT
Have it from around 8 months now...
Battery sucks big time.. every night need to charge...
plus sumtimes while closing the flip, the phone reboots.. bad software...

Help Needed, 11 Nov 2008Thank you ------*HaWk*STYLE* for replying. I'd like to think that I've put in malware, but ... moreHave you fixed the problem with your phone?? Cause I too, just recently started having that problem.. Can you help?? Thanks..
For those of you who are complaining about the short battery life. Just google the Motorola battery BX-80 and all your problems will go away. Will increase battery life by a whopping 85%.
i just bought this phone and i'm wondering why my audio output is very low. either playing music tracks or the message alerts, i can barely hear a thing when on a crowded place. however, if i play games, the volume output is at max.
i have set the volume to level 7 but still, the volume output when i play music tracks are low.
am i missing something?
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2008I've had one since Feb and I'm on my 4th one...tis one is going back and I'm getting a differe... moreT-Mobile are a bunch of liars! Everybody that I know that has one of these v8 phones, are completely dissatisified. some of the functions only work sometimes. Generally, the phone is not reliable. Battery life is approximately one hour.
Battery life sucks, only last around an hour and fifteen minutes between charges. The flip is not user friendly, very hard to open, but equally easy to close. Extremely difficult to keep clean.
v8 is a very nice unit. the sales clerk should have recommended the higher model which is the v9. they were trying to sell all old units. i should have bought the v9. but actually v8 is a very nice unit. im contented already. very sleek, modern, nice features
Less than one week of purchasing my V8 i have it replaced because of factory defect even my other motorala product. Dnt know why, but now its still ok.
I've had one since Feb and I'm on my 4th one...tis one is going back and I'm getting a different model altogether. Problems with keypad, phone shutting off on its own, people complaining of "echoing" and the list continues. Yet when I ask Tmobile of anyone else has complained, they say no its supposed to be one of the "better" models/phones.

Buttons have caused problems almost since new and I am about to take it back under warranty to get them looked at. Battery life is Ok, I normally get about 3 days of moderate use between charges.
My main problem is the software for the calander which is a major step back from the V3. Main problems are around the alarms attached to calander events. If setting a custom alarm you can't change the units from minutes so you can only set the custom alarm for a max of 99 minutes. After that you have to select a whole day. Also, if you miss an alarm it doesn't stay on the screen but disappears after a minute. So, if you miss an alarm it isn't obvious when you open the phone that you have missed anything. Finally, if you do catch the alarm you can open the calander item but you can't edit it from there. Instead you have to dismiss the alarm and then go back into calander to change anything in the event. It is just cumbersom. I have asked Motorola about these things and they tell me they are aware of them but no software update for the V8. Does anyone have a solution for any of these problems or am I just destined to get a phone with better sorted software?
really astonishing looks......value for money...has good bluetooth, head set also great but battery back up dosen't fit to its clsaa....overall a usable phone and rates 4 out of five stars..
