My front case covers the whole phone exept
for the camera,the styled M logo
(represents motorola) and the whole 2"
(Too late GSM Arena to post my commments!)
I already bought a crystal case its only
P100!/2.+ U$ only! I think i bought the 1st
type that ure saying... The back part
easily slips on my V8 the front part is
strong not like the back part...
Few hours later when I'm walking the
case back part protector just broke!
Now there's only 1 back protector but it's
stonger than the broken 1. I planned to
give it back but I was in a hurry...
I'll just try to find different types of
the crystal case for V8...
===To Stuart ===
do you think this phone will last 4 abt 4yrs? somebody pls help?.. tnx.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Gerard,
Price for the crystal cover set is around USD 2 to 3 bucks , depending on which mall I go for the purchase. It's good that you are able to accept the overall V8's thickness up to 13mm with the cover installed - I've measured and it's about 13mm.
Opening with one thumb is possible but I don't practice that myself. The upper part of V8 where both the screens are located would be pushed and opened to the fullest by the thumb's force and the spring's assistance inside the hinge , leaving only the V8's frames contact causing it to stop at its maximum. This might not be too good for the frame & possibly the electronic ribbon connecting to the screens. (this is my opinion). So I've been opening my V8 with 2 hands all the time, but it all depends on individual's preference.
About your age, I don't believe you are too young to own any phones that you like as long as you can afford it. If you like it, you don't have to listen to other's comments, as jealousy could be the reason for them to say that. Maybe they can't afford it, or maybe they heard (hearsay) from someone that V8's not good. Hearsay is dangerous & misleading. In the future, I suggest you do your own researches (internet reviews, user's feedback, magazine's review and even trying it out personally at a phone shop)) and decide on your own whether to purchase an item or not, so I'm not just referring to phone. The very fact that this year you've been seeing more people using V8 means you have made a good choice. Many times you've probably heard or seen someone looking at a particular model they like but ended up didn't buy it. So Age is not a barrier on phone selection, money is.
Good luck Gerard.

I reallly thinnnk I'm too young to own
a V8. Here in the Philippines whenever
I go to malls I always see 20+ years old
owning a V8... I feel too young I'm only
In the year 2007 V8 is not popular I think
I'm the only 1 in my country who owns
a V8 or a RAZR2...
But in this year I'm surprised wherever I
go I alwas see a RAZR2 phone...!...
It's ok for me if my V8 got
13. something mm. Just as long
as i could protect it and easy

Crystal phone covers are generally produced by very few small scale phone accessories manufacturers so they don't come with brands. My experience - I've purchased 2 types (designs) of crystal covers for V8, so far no scratches whatsoever on my V8 from these crystal covers in fact they prevented my V8 from it. One thing I noticed was each time I dropped my V8 (so far couple of times), the crystal cover cracked. So I sacrificed them instead of my V8. The crystal cover consist of 2 pieces, covering the front & back. The only area not covered or protected is the hinge (silver color) and both end of it. So if the phone's drop at an angle where the side of the hinge touching the ground first, that area will be scratched or damaged otherwise the phone's safe. So far I was really lucky!! (touch wood)
1st type: front cover exposing the entire 2" display.
2nd type: front cover exposing only the music control buttons - rewind, play/pause, forward and covers the majority of the 2" display but you can still see bcoz it's crystal cover. Back cover, for me it's in material.
For me, I like the 2nd type more, the protection is better and the side grips are easier to install instead of the 1st type making it easier to remove for cleaning purpose. I also found that with crystal cover, opening the flip is slightly easier. The drawbacks - slightly thicker and making the V8's elegant look slightly "hidden". For your info, I've changed about 4 sets of crystal covers already, they are cheap, it's OK. Maybe you should get a set, try it and if you don't like it, just keep it in your drawer.

To answer your question, there are 2 parts as I do not know exactly which one you are refering to.
1. Transferring music via bluetooth (phone to phone)
My experience - fast. But of course, depending on how an individual define fast. As compared to my previous Motorola Z3, V8's definitely much much faster. I've tried both Z3 & V8 in transferring music from the same source (another phone, SE K550i), probably 2 or maybe close to 3 times faster than the Z3.
2. Transferring music between PC and phone
This is the usual stuff, I guess you'd probably know the answer, the copy and paste thing, so to be exact, it's real fast.
I truly believe it's something to do with the Linux OS and also the V8's 500Mhz processor.
Hey guys, Just wondering whats this phone like for transferring music to the phone, Does it take a while n stuff?
hello guys...just wanna ask,are the 512mb and the 2gb version of the v8 have the same price?
Another thing you could try is master reset. It usually helps in such cases.

It sounds like it could be related to the phone's software. Take it in for service/ software update. I feel if it was a speaker problem you wouldn't hear anything on your headset. I hope I understood you correctly.

For your answer, you'll need to install Motorola Phone Tool software, a CD usually comes together in your V8's box. Once installed, you'll be able to see pictures, recorded videos, transfer music, update softwares and even sync with your Microsoft Outlook - in case you have calendars, contact and tasks that you want to transfer into your V8.
