i like this phone very much. so elegant and classy. however i couldnt make it bond with my v3x. when i activate my bluetooth i could find other devices but not my other phone. have you had the same experience?
How'd you get it free?
Anyway, yea this phone is really loud.
For me, it's still working flawlessly with my HBH-DS970, donno why there were bad comments on mobile-review saying if you were running or got active with both, they'd just kinda go down in quality.
I haven't had it beep on me for missing calls yet, but the ringtone was loud enough to make everyone in the room jump when it spit out the first note.
Camera's good quality, doesn't have an optical AF, but the digital one takes care of regular hand shakiness/blur very nicely. Flash I think is brighter then SE's and the reception is very powerful and clear. But only outside or when not in the garage (condo) or elevator. Sometimes I lose connection, but I don't mind. It's still a good phone overall.
Going from 7am-4pm music non stop, this thing displays it's battery by every 33%, and it didn't even go down after 5 mins of calls and listening to music with it by bluetooth, changing songs every other few minutes. It stayed at 100-66% battery life.
Bluetooth transferring with files is very fast too but I find it's hard to scroll for songs as it takes a while when you have 300+ songs.
Also when I put them into a playlist, they're all in a random order. Anyone know if there's a menu fuction to sort by title? I couldn't find it.
just got mine today... for free!!! damn its such a cool fone!!! great sound, great resolution, and really great looks!!! woohoo!!! get one now!
Is this model come with reminder "beep" sound when you did not answer any missed call or sms like other Motorola phones?
Is the ring tone loud enough to hear when in noise environment, like supermarket or shopping centre?
I would like to find out before get one. Thanks!
Mine wiggels a bit to, but thats really not a problem.
I am though not able to set up MMS. Does anyone know how to configure this sucker manually? The instruction book that follows is horrible.
Just got the phone today, loving it.
The outer cover wiggling is as much as any other flip phone, I notice. But what I don't notice is it's movement or slight lower in quality because of it. It's hardly a bother.
At first as well, the HBH-DS970 was a bit sketchy to use, and though I know that technology isn't like humans, but I think it just had to get used to each other, then the two devices worked seamlessly.
Good phone, and an ok trade-off with the W810. Only bad thing is lack of memory, but I can live by that. Everything else is very exceptional and I don't think I'll ever get bored of this phone like I did with my SE.
Though Motorola didn't change much to the UI and designs, it's still a very different experience and handle for me from their older phones like the 220 and 720. There may be arguements that this phone shouldn't be compared to those old flips but it's a good advance in technology from where I stand.
Every phone company is good. Motorola in their design and if used properly, durability for many years, in this aspect, Nokia lives up to it's name too, though it's design can only be driven with a special cameo or function like the 3220 with the light ups and led messaging cover. Even though the plastic cover broke off, it still worked. SE I've not had enough experience with using, but so far, it's a good phone, but a bit too standard for me. I'd rather have to work around something rather then just have many capabilities when there's just no point to them. Simple is best.
Yes, I also think it´s too bad that the cover "wiggles".. I´m so glad for everything else in this phone, but I mean, it´s not a cheap phone. And when they could get everything else right, and have a lot of sofisticated features, why couldn´t they make a simple thing like a cover tight..?
And with this phone you use the outer features more, so you notice it more.
been looking for a phone for a long time as my contract kept rolling the months over but didnt see any thing that caught my eye then bam this little baby pops up and i instantly fell in love with it the smooth glass front the shiney key pad it just ozed sex and i had to have it so off to vodafone i went and two days later it came wow i thought when i opened it this phone rocked turned it on simple to use no problem then all off a soden it goes off opps did i press a button by mistake i thought no not to my luck turned it on again and opps it goes off again maybe i should leave it to charge so an hour later have another go succes it stays on mess about with it a bit take some piccys no probs go in the album to look at my handy work and all the pictures i have taken go all funny colours dam this phone im thinking now never mind will phone up vodafone to get it replaced shame really as its a top phone built qualtity good seems sterdy and looks so cool with the blue neon lights that dance when it rings lets hope the next one works fine if not i guess its the se w850i for me
@ the guy below:
please take a closer look at the posted comments, this question have been answered many times before.
Is it just me or does everyone's Maxx wiggle alittle with the flip closed??? I just paid $327 for this thing, it shouldn't be wiggling! Or does everyone's do that?
theres few mm between the inner screen and keyboard so it wount be scratched
So it seems that it´s not only mine that has the "loose" cover.
I´m just a little worried that the inner screen will get scratced from this..
Yea, I'm sure you can. I'm getting this in a few days (by wednesday) and I'll be up with some comments that I haven't seen posted yet.
juz wondering, juz like most SE fones, u can set your own SMS alert tone, can this one do the same as well?
Sure, I´m very happy with it, just wanted to know if it was a general thing or just mine.
Hope it doesn´t gets worse over time..
