I bought mine here in Taiwan. Changed the language to English in the language section of the settings. Went to find Private to privatize some of my personal phone numbers and was unable to do so. 1st. there was no private in English as three different characters had popped up in Chinese. Kind of odd as everything else was in English except for the categories in the Phonebook section of the listings. There was one in Chinese which was supposed to mean private after asking someone to tanslate for me still did not work in privatizing a telephone number. Anyone here chime in? I have a 2Gb. memory card installed and it works great. On ecan shoose whether or not to enable the show private listings but regardless of whether or not it was enabled I was still not able to privatize any numbers. On Dialled numbers my phone was able to log 36 Dialled numbers which is very good and beats the 20 that Nokia used to remember.
i think theres USB to 3.5mm adaptor for sale, check it out in ur local motorola dealer or any shops, i saw one before.
Anyone from north of the border where the rivers run fresh and the beavers-
Anyone from Canada get this phone yet?
I know it's out, but I want to know versatility and mobility with this, mainly within Southern Ontario (GTA/Toronto area).
Also bumping info from another guy, he saw something that said UMTS2100/850 GSM900/1800/1900/HSDPA on the box of his MaxxV6.
Does that mean it's like QuintBand?
And it'll work with EDGE/850 band networks?
Had this phone a month now. I still love it. I was initially concerned about scratches on the glass exterior. Not one scratch after a months use and it has had a few knocks. Am very impressed.
All the functions can be accessed very quickly. There is no delay after selecting a function at all. They just pop up as soon as you press the key. The music player is so good I have decided not to bother getting the ipod nano I was going to buy.
One small thing I am not very keen on is the supplied headphones. They work very well as a hands free kit but the earpieces don't fit me very well. Haven't seen any mini usb to 3.5mm adapters anywhere so will have to do for the moment. I was surprised that I could play back music through a standard bluetooth headset.
qvga doesnt work. it's qcif (?) that's working right now. BUT some rumors are saying that with some hacking/unlocking you can play 320x240 rez.
Hey is anyone on here "really" tech-savy as far as videography on this Maxx? If so, tell me exactly in what folder did you put your music videos or movies in the "mobile" folder on your memory card for them to play on the phone? I converted all of my music videos and movies in to QVGA "3GP" & "MP4" formats and the phone still couldn't read them or play them. They all played on my Samsungs D900 AND A707 in QVGA. They also worked for the RIZR in 220x176 resolution. I just can't seem to get them up and running. What software program is everyone using to convert their videos for this phone?
Headphones with wires works. I got headhphones in my package but if you don't you need to buy a converter from mini usb to 3.5mm or buy moto original.
do u need bluetooth headphones to listen to music or can u use headphones with wires?
Hmmm, I heard that Americans are stuck at 3g so the phone only work in bigger cities (you don't have it out in the country) The usual band 2g, is not avaible due to the missing band 850.

I live in sweden, so I have 2g, 3g, EDGE and HSPDA here. 3g also has better coverage then the 2g out in the country, thumbs up!
But our country is a little smaller then yours, hehe:)
"The 3g is fast, but I only have hspda in the city. This phone will only work with 3g in usa at the moment, not 2g. People are working on it though."
Are you talking about EDGE because I've heard from people who got the phone that they are stuck with EDGE because they don't have 3G by them. But your 3G does work where you live correct (and it's in the USA?)
Bought this phone on orange. The battery life is great, love the keypad and the general feel. Any ideas how to get rid of the odd fingerprint on the glass front that won't budge with a cloth?
To people below:
Musicplayer original is in the software, NOT a javaapp. Some providors do put an extra javaplayer in it.
The 3g is fast, but I only have hspda in the city. This phone will only work with 3g in usa at the moment, not 2g. People are working on it though.
Its quadband. The number you show is 3g and hspda.
Hey ya guys with the V6 maxx, can u tell me is the music player in it a JAVA app same as the V3x? or its a flash baseD?
how fast does the 3G work in the areas that people have it? I'm in NYC with 3G it should work right it's not only european 3g?
I just got a RAZR Maxx V6 around 2 weeks ago, and i checked the box the phone came in and it actually says:
does this mean that it can recieve 5 bands, therefore even better than a quadband?
Hey i just got this phone today and what i noticed everytime i call my voicemail i get a text message anyone has the same problem...and i am from The United States NY.
