purchasing accessories from the same mobilephone brand, especially in your case it's a bluetooth headset, is not advisable!
Yes, because these stuffs are made covered by certain rules / regulations of use, in short these accessories are "selfish" or "dependent" in nature, most of the time they only depend on the specific brands & at times, badly, they only can be used on or shall i say they are only designed for a specific handset of a certain brand..
Just a reminder, if you are the type of individual who likes to use various mobilephones from different brands, may i suggest when buying accessories especially bluetooth headsets, you may drop by at any "independent manufacturers" of accessories, because most of the time they create things that surely are all compatible for all brands! Trust Me!:)
But, don't forget to read & ask the personel so that you are properly guided.
does this phone support A2DP...? i tried pairing it wif a sony ericsson wireless headphone...it couldn't increase and edcrese the music volume...after tht i tried it on a Jabra headphones...it couldn't even pair up...or is it because it can onli support motorola wireless headphones...?
Well, I just got my phone back from Motorola and it is working again. There is no explanation as to why it got stuck in the first place.
Since it was out of warranty by a few days and Motorola decided to fix it free of charge anyway. So I am happy with with the service I have received from Motorola in this regard.
the motorola razr v6 maxx is a nice phone
i would stick with it it is a next g mobile

does this phone really has a large display? cause I'm planning to buy it, when i look at its pictures it seems that that display is not so large
Whilst browsing the internet the other day my phone got suck here no keys would work. I could not turn it off so took the battery off. Now it won't turn back on no matter ehat I do. The battery is fully charged and still charges up. I notice looking through the opinions that at least one other person has had this problem. I am taking it in to be repaired today if it doesn't cost too much.
This fone is so cool and amazing and strong. i dropped it while driving at 80 kph on the highway and went out to get it and found only a couple of scratches.
I SWARE I AM NOT LYING!!! :-)
Motorola has become the Stock, Aitken and Waterman of the mobile phone world -- like the pop-producing team, it's found a formula that works and is sticking to it religiously. As a result, the Maxx looks remarkably like the previous incarnations of the Razr design. Thankfully, though, it's not just a reheat of yesterday's leftovers because under the bonnet it's tuned for speed, thanks to its support for the super-fast 3G standard HSDPA.
If, however, you haven't experienced Motorola's menu system before, you'll find it unintuitive, and you'll also have to spend some time adjusting to its iTap predictive text system, which is significantly different to the more common T9 system found on rival handsets.
Still, this remains a very stylish handset that's great for connecting to the Web on the move, thanks to the large, brightly lit screen and its support for speedy downloads. The phone is currently available free on contract with Orange, but you'll also soon be able to buy it SIM-free online for around £220.
Motorola really hasn't strayed far from the original Razr design with the Maxx. At 15mm thick, it's still super-slim, especially by the standards of 3G phones, and it retains the stylish keypad, which is made from etched metal -- although this time the keys are slightly wider.
The only major design update is the hardened glass finish on the front. This covers the small external colour screen and also hides three dedicated music buttons for fast forward, rewind and play/pause. Like the touch buttons on LG's Chocolate phone, these only light up when you run your finger over them. We found they can be a bit slow to respond, though.
If you want to use the phone for music, you'll need to boost the 50MB of internal memory using the microSD card slot. Unfortunately this isn't very easy to get at because it's hidden under the battery cover. We would have much preferred to have it tucked away on the side of the handset like Samsung managed with its equally slim Z560.
The keypad itself hasn't changed all that much from the original Razr, but that's no bad thing as the keys are well spaced out and easy to use for texting. And, unlike keypads on some rival models, the back light is very bright so you can see the keys in the dark.
Flip open the handset and the first thing that hits you is the large and brightly lit screen. It looks very sharp, thanks to its 240x320-pixel resolution, and really comes into its own when your fire up the Web browser using the dedicated button on the keypad.
The Maxx is a quad-band handset, so you'll be able to use it in most countries around the world, but it's primarily designed for use on 3G networks and so features dual cameras for video calling. The secondary camera captures low-grade VGA-quality video, but the main snapper mounted on the outside of the case can take 2-megapixel pictures.
One neat trick is that this camera can be started up when the phone is shut by pressing a button on the right-hand side. This calls the external screen into play as a viewfinder, making it easy to frame group shots.
Motorola has had a go at cleaning up its menu system, but you'll notice when using it that there are still times when all logic appears to have been abandoned. For example, after snapping a picture using the camera, you're given the option to send it, however you can only use this option to send via MMS or email. If you want to send a picture via Bluetooth you have to first save it to memory, exit the camera application and then open it up in the media folder. Only from here can you choose to send it via Bluetooth. It's very frustrating.
The Maxx V6 supports the A2DP (stereo Bluetooth) profile, so you can link it to a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones for listening to music. The music player can pump out tunes in MP3, WMA and AAC formats and it's very easy to create your own playlists of the tracks stored on the phone. We connected it to Orange's Stereo Bluetooth Speakers and found that the sound quality was very good, especially the deep bass on tracks like Damian Marley's Welcome to Jamrock.
Where the Maxx really stands out is when it's connected to the Web via the super-fast 3G HSDPA service. We tried it with an HSDPA SIM from T-Mobile and the results were really impressive.
Google News loaded much more quickly on the handset's browser than we've experienced on non-super 3G handsets. On a speed test using the phone's built-in browser we got a real life download speed of 324.5Kbps, which isn't bad. When we used the phone as a modem for our laptop, however, we got a far higher speed rating of 1.1Mbps, which is faster than some people's ADSL broadband connections.
The audio quality during calls was also good, with the handset sounding crisp and sharp. Despite the phone's slimline design, the built-in speaker is quite loud and worked very well in speakerphone mode.
Camera phones rarely produce stunning snaps, and in this regard the Maxx is pretty much par for the course. The pictures from the 2-megapixel camera are reasonably sharp, but the colours tend to look slightly washed out. It's lacking autofocus, too, so you have to be careful to avoid blur. That said, it does have an LED flash, so you can get viewable results in low light.
Motorola says the battery is good for around 380 hours on standby and five hours of talk time. We had to charge it after three days of use, but we were using it for a lot of battery intensive tasks, such as 3G downloads and music playback over Bluetooth.
The Maxx's closest competitor is the super-3G Z560 from Samsung. Both phones are remarkably similar, right down to the three touch-sensitive music buttons on the front. We found the Samsung's menu system easier to use, although the Maxx feels like a sturdier handset, but in truth there's very little to choose between them. Maxx Outshines the others!!
AWESOME PHONE!!!!! LOVE IT VERY MUCH!!!!
iconic look, handles multiple tasks well; if you are listening to a song while browsing the Web, and encounter online audio or video, the song will stop, then resume after you've had your Internet multimedia fix..those not familiar with the Motorola user interface are in for a bit of a shock as it takes some getting used to.. it's a top performer all round...2.0 mega pixel camera for still photography, and a VGA camera for video calling. Both are excellent.Lovely Music player(sounds better with custom earphones), fast menu interface (presence of nvidia graphic card)...more futuristic look, with its combination of metal and glass and the cool touch sensitive music keys..Enfin, I found it to be very satisfying after the latest software update available in motorola website(major bugs have been removed)!! Thumbs UP!! to the founder of mobile phone!!
wat does it mean by 'ur computers processor isn't compatible'??? it happened when i was trying to install the driver to mod my phone...
I am currently owning a V6 and it's great...even greater when I modded it from the skins to the phone flip's lights. I am really impressed with this one and its 3g speed is unbelieveble. It iseasy to mod, just make sure to backup and have the right stuff before doing anything. You can go to www.modmymoto.com for your Motorola modding needs.
And to those who say that this phone is easy to break...RAZR's are always delicate phones, they require care and constant maintenance and they can repay you many times over. Virtually any phone isn't tough enough to withstand wear and tear so don't tell that this phone is too breakable. It really depends upon the user.
Crippled phone :( . I have the Vodafone Live version, on Vodacom SA. It cannot do many video formats, even some 3gp. I wish it could do Flash and other formats. Has problems with most social networking sites, very frustrating. Updates never available. Internal browser poor. It can download and run other Opera browsers, a relief. Plays music ok. Works great as an HSDPA modem, very fast, could even run on Win98 over Bluetooth dongle. The MPT software is a bit buggy. Obviously the current firmware is very limiting, I am very tempted to flash it with updated unofficial firmware but scared to invalidate the warranty. The phone is very flimsy, the outer glass cracks very easily
Yes you can use the phone as a modem provided you installed MPT on your computer.
This phone is great only for a short period of time. After months of regular use the rubber skin starts to peel off. How bad is that?! Then the OS starts to operate not the way it used to. Absolutely no one can call you because the phone won't ring. I had to take it back for repairs but that costs a lot. It would be better to buy an older phone that has high quality than a phone that easily breaks down less than a year.
