I am in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I have traveled within the Sunise, Lauderhill, Coral Springs, Plantation area with this phone so far...and I have had great reception. There has not been any problems. Unfortunately, when I get inside my home, I get "questionable" coverage (meaning my phone works but only when it is strategically placed in certain parts of the house). I believe it is because of the lack of the 850mh band.
I contacted Cingular prior to purchasing the phone, and they checked the towers within my local coverage area...they told me that mostly all of the towers had BOTH an 850mh, and a 1900mh band on them. That is probably why I can use my phone with ease anywhere outside my house.
Additionally, my phone works fine inside buildings. I work in an office that resembles a "tin can", and my signal strength is at MAX.
Again, the only problem I have is in my house...and knowing that the lower the frequency (i.e. 850mh) the better it is to travel through walls. I'm thinking either the tower close to my house is only an 850mh tower, or the walls on my house are too thick for the higher frequency (i.e., 1900mh) to travel through.
I am going onto Howardforums right now...hopefully you have the solution.
How did you mate it private mate?... don't even know how to do it.
Explain how you did it maybe i can help.
Hi, I have just bought this phone, and so far its great!
However I have edited a contact, and made it private, as I dont want people to find it. Now it has dissapeared, and I cant find it. I need this number! How does it work, the private number thing?
go on howardforums, me and couple of friends who already own the phone are working on an 850 seem edit.
AIM me at bokaboi69
where in south florida are you? I'm in boca raton, fl and am wanting this phone but worried about the reception, since i heard people with 1900 european phones get lousy coverage i.e. i320n. Please let me know man
I have the Razr Maxx, and I can't believe how great it is! I use it with Cingular's network, and I live in the South Florida Region. Prior to buying the phone, I contacted Cingular, and asked if a tri-band phone would work. They said yes, and they were correct! I do experience a few "dead" spots and a lack of service within my house because of the missing 850mh band, but through time, I'm sure one of you guys can come up with the software program for the additional service coverage.
I have problems connecting to the web, too, but I'm sure there is a program out there.
If anyone knows of a program to get Cingular's web access, MMS, and extra 850mh band strength programmed onto this phone, please respond....I greatly appreciate your feedback, your advice, and your help.
Hi guy comming with a small update of the phone..
The phone is great..keeping in mind that i have never used a Motorola in my life. I picked up a v3i and a v3x from a friend of mine just to compare them to the V6 Maxx...and boy the phone is out the world...the display is great..the reception is mind blowing..but i must add that a time i did here an echo dureing the call of my own voice but that hasn't happned since last night and hasent happned since then..
What came in the box ?
1. The phone (Black)
2. Battery (BZ60)
3. Usb cable
4. Motorola Phone Tooles CD
5. Ear phones (single eneded)
First things first the the Phones apparence is great.I was not wery happy with the V3 when it launched but then kind of grew to like it , hence the V6 maxx has landed up in my hands.
The phones software is out the world , the V3i and V3x dont even come close to the the V6 Maxx..Motorola has realy worked on the probs that they had with the v3i and v3x and totaly give for the first time something that could be the thing if you can get around the totaly different style that Motorola OS works..which is to say not bad at all...
The features are very pratical and user friendly once you get around to knowing them . The personalization is noway even close to the SE's or Nokia but its not bad either..
The audio quality i must say is not bad for a phone of this size..Noway close to the SE's but ok..the touch key are good no probs yet..
Mind you the Motorola Tools CD that comes with the phone is not updated..so after instaling it on the comp you will need to download the updateed version from the net..which i feel is a little stupid never the less that how it goes...Motorola heads up....(about nearly 40Mb)
The MMS and GPRS settings in my network need to be down loaded by following a few easy steps from the Hellomoto.com...But mind you , you will not find the V6 maxx on the list of phones there so i did try the settings for the V3x and was up and running...
I will update further once i get fingering it..
Hope you liked the review , since it my frist one...
Please forgive the english as i'am no good at it..
how much longer 'till the international version will be available, tired of waiting. and just noticed that if i glanced at it, it looked like it was made by an ordinary plastic, not to sophisticated.
it has an unreasonable high price
I have had mine for almost a month, I just had to take it back for a replacement as the wake up alarm randomly stopped working! any one else had this problem? I have come from a nokia and miss my smiley faces, any idea how to get them on this phone? All in all an excellent phone!
hey guys i got this phone like 6 days ago n i'm in love wit the phone. this is the best moto phone ever built. i've been usin nokia n sony phone all my life but n i also had v3 razr but this is nothin like anythin i've ever had or used b4 very good phone worth every single penny go get it wont b disapointd. I DO HAVE ONE QUESTION THOUGH IS THERE ANYWAY THAT THE BLU LITE IN FRONT GO ON IF PRESSED A BUTTON OR SOMETHING??? NOT THE MP3 KEY THOUG THE M SYMBOL N THE OTHE 2 LINES. THANKYA KINDLY -:MAXX:
To a guy a while ago who dared SE to make a phone as thin or even within the diamentions of this phone as good. There is one coming out. As thin or even thinner than the iPod Nano and it's a candybar shape. W880 me thinks it is.
phone is out in canada now, it has been unlocked, soon to come to a store near you in 1-2 months
price should be about 550 as i got offered for it that much
no memory card with it though 1gb is 40 and 2 is 100
It's out in HK at HK$3380. I was told it comes with flash and faster download.
not sure, but according to reliable source, This month around 20th, in Singapore, not sure about m'sia
this has got to be the flagship motorola phone!!! Still waiting for it in msia. Saw the cool lights it have in youtube!!! luv it. anybody knows when its going to be out in singapore or msia?
After I got this phone Friday from http://www.omnicelusa.com/product-info.asp?id=154 I thought it would be a phone I would only have for a few months. But if a phone could last forever this would be my choice. Its a great upgrade in overall appearance and data transfer from my V3x. Anyone want a one owner V3x?
@ Help Please
