I have MAXX V6 phone which I've bought, brand new, in Bucharest, Romania.
It works flawlessly, except some times when it suddenly locks (I cannot dial out). If I restart it, I cannot enter SIM PIN for a while (the OK in upper left is greyed). It regains normal operation after I take out the battery and let it like that for about a day.
This becomes pretty annoying - is this happening to other persons, too ? Any idea, please ? Is this a hardware failure or just a software one ?
Thanks a lot,
how many messages can you store in this fone?
thnx.plz answer.. badly nidid..thnx
really great the obvious thing it is . the lack is fm radio only.but the performance makes you forget it . tv works good .he screen is really bright and in daylight also effective . java is good working and also supports background .mp3 player is awesome supporting the album covers . if you drop down the brigtness you can get more battery life .

ok, if you really revived your v6, tell us how you did it so we "motorola haters" t... moreSorry for the delay. You want to know how I did it? Just learn to become a hacker (it's easy BTW) and you can easily fix the problem. Just download the necessary drivers and software (all are free) and use your USB cable. Flash a new monster pack (term for pre-modified software) to it and it will work just fine.
Mine is almost a year old now and ever since that horrible experience, I have learned to actually take care of it a little better now. Maybe you should do the same.
@ all worried Filipino V6 users:
I can help you with the fixing if I can. I usually go to www.modmymoto.com and discuss in the V6 forum. PM me (or any other V6 modder)if you need help.
Yeah, I know about the keypad problem and the freezing thing. That's because the V6 is the last P2K software phone of Motorola, the buggiest and crappiest of them all. At least it's fast. Try buying the ROKR E8, very sexy, sophisticated and beats the crap out of any iPod out there in terms of sound clarity. It uses Linux software this time!!!!
Please help!! My V6 Maxx doesn't charge at all even the USB when I plug to my computer it doesn't charge also. Perhaps I woll have to buy a Motorola DESK TOP CHARGE which is compatible with my V6-Maxx. where can I buy this in Manila, Philippines. email@example.com
i've been use this phone about 3 month. this phone are realy great. its cool.......
I have had my V6 for nearly two years. It takes great photos and videos, mp3 playback is great. A couple of months ago the phone got wet and stopped working. After it dried out I was able to use the phone as per usual. The only problem is I can no longer use the END CALL button, not even to turn the power off. This has not stopped the V6 from being a great phone, I still surf the net on it, install & use new games and content on the phone. I still make & recieve plenty of calls and messages. When the phone goes flat (the only way the power can be turned off) I just recharge it and it powers straight on again. Closing the phone disconects all calls when needed, and I just use the BACK button to get out of most other things. So as you can see the damage caused by the water was not really a problem after all.
i have had a motorola v6 ferrari for about 6 months now.. the phone was working just fine .. until a few days bak, wen it got stuck... actually the keypad got stuck. everything else works .just d power button on d keypad works ! i cannot make or pikup ne calls. when i tried connecting it on my computer via moto tools, it got connected and is working just fine.. once in a blue moon d keypad will start working again for some 5 seconds, nd den d fone freezes, u hav no option left but to restart it.
plz advice me what to do as i gt dis phone from london and my fones warranty isnt covered worldwide...
I had loved this phone for just a little more than a year...up until it died with no possibility of repair (except replacing the motherboard which costs the same as buying a new phone). I was so angry, I bought it from SM Cyberzone North Edsa (Manila) where it was 5000 pesos more expensive than other outlets because of the 1 year warranty, and it died just 15 days after the phone warranty expired, how's that for irony. And the people at the service center in SM North Edsa, awful people who don't know what they're talking about and don't care about customers. A woman named Ana just keeps blabbering on with obviously no idea of what's happening and just wants you to leave ASAP. I highly advise you to treat this service center as a last resort. To be fair to the phone, it had great features, loved the solid feel and design, games, videos, music, HSDPA, camera, all good. Except for the fact that it just dies beyond repair for no reason and no warning. Am i just unlucky for getting a dud? Maybe. For those considering buying this phone though, just know that this could be a risk you're taking.
no my v6 is not yet repaired b'coz it cost at about 5000 pesos to buy new motherboard, just like buying a new one, Im using a Nokia n82 now and all i can say is i love this phone
T11rmh, 23 Jan 2008Whilst browsing the internet the other day my phone got suck here no keys would work. I could ... moremy phone did the same thing. it froze while i was writing a text message. so i took the battery out and now it refuses to turn itself back on. the battery was full and even with plugging it into the charger it will not turn on. did you get yours fixed for cheap?
this phone motorola maxx v6 just died, and when i have it checked by the technician he told me that it is better to buy a new one than having my unit repaired.WTF! this phone has elegant design and good features but overall i say this its a crappy motorola phOne.moto guys i hope you can fix this problem with your V6 units
I just want to post this review for a very unfornate experienced with motorola phone V6 max and the store in MOA Philippines where I bought it. I like the features of this phone especially if you talk about MP3. The quality of the sound is extremely good when you want to hear music and see videos. This phone is also fast if you brouse in the internet. However after 3 to 4 months of using the phone the keypod system malfunctioned and I have to bring it there for repair. It took me almost 2 to 3 months to wait because they told me the parts will still come from Japan. So I asked for a service phone and they provided me with one. But, is this how the repair process have to take long? Finally I got the phone and the warranty was extended only for another 2 months.. I did use the phone, it was not even a year that same problem had occured and I was already out of the warranty. I have to bring it back (Motorola store in MOA Philippines) for diagnosis and I was informed that the fee is just like buying a new phone so I didn't have it repaired. My sentiment is motorola is a good phone but it is not sturdy and the people in that store are not customer friendly. For me they are arrogant. I hope motorola will have do something about their phone and their personels especially Motorola Store in MOA Philippines. I was really very unfornate because the bad experience did not end in just one phone but in another phone I bought in the same store L72i. The keypod laminated coating has peeled off in just 10 months of usage. Is this a factory defect??? I have read good reviews of motorola phones but I am just unfornate to get one probably with a factory defect but the experienced I have with the store personels I won't forget. My family will not go back in that store ever. I hope store owners will have to look into this matter for a better service and care to their customers...
This fone has lasted me 2 years now. Da battery last a minimum of 1 week after I have had it for so long! I never have had one problem with this fone, its great.
i just bought this phone 3days ago. i really liked this phone ever since it was out on the market. at last i get to have one myself but i had a PROBLEM. when i try to call or receive a call the sound is choppy or grabbled and you cant understand a word. it's the same when you use the headset or do it on loud speaker. i gave it to motorola repair center and cant fix it and has to be sent to the main office.
if ever i get that fixed i'll sell it and got back to SONY ERICSSON!!!
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2008Yes! Maxx V6 can be modded. I have modded the volume table of my V6 and have now increased it!... moreHow you did it?because i really excited with this phone from the design....is any other way to increase the battery power?thanks. reply me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi everybody, can help me? I see the one of this V6's spesification is has a HTML browser, that is Opera 8. What kind of Opera 8? Is it like Opera Mini 4.1 or Opera for Symbian UIQ? Is the movement of 3x4 grid menu display slow? (that I know this V6 has CPU class ARM 9, and the CPU clock speed is 241 Mhz?
I have bene a loyal Motorola user for a decade (and I still am) but this is the first mobile handset that let me down. After 9 months careful use, the handset just died on me. It was fine then after it had been switched off for half an hour it would not switch on again. I was gutted, because I had loved it to that point. It could be slow in moving between screens and signal reception during calls wavered about a bit. - Sadly I coudn't get it replaced by the manufacturer.
I have had to move onto a different motorola model through the same service provider which is fine, but lacks a lot of the features of the Maxx V6.
The V6 is a great phone if you want one that has all the functions: Video calls, camera, music, etc. However from my experience, you may be taking a risk and trading reliability to get it.
