Chrisy: I noticed that the side buttons are like flimsy (if you would) and cheap! But everything else is very streamlined except those buttons. Now you have the silver or black V3? Because i own the black and it has a firmware glitch that when you take the pictures (and looks ok) when you save it and view it it has these odd pixelated patterns! I heard all the black V3 have this problem so...keep a sharp eye.
I just got the V3 Black 4 days ago and for some strange reason i cant find the Keypad lock (and yes i know its a clamshell) When i put the phone in my pocket i seem to press the side buttons and change the profile to silent or vibrate and miss calls, why does this phone not have a keypad lock......What a stupid design flaw...!
Motorolla has a reputation in which they advertise their phones to death making you believe the phone can do anything! Oh yeah to add to that equation they polish the heck out of the phones (meaning they look pretty)but when you buy it and use it...it's garbage! V3 for example great looking phone but feature wise it has nothing! really nothing i mean i can buy a phone alot cheaper and get more better features and i end up saving cash! And i heard the black edition V3 has a firmware glitch that takes good pictures but saves the picture pixelated. Why buy a car that looks aggresive to only disapoint you in the racetrack because it has a lawn mower engine?
in my own personal opinion this phone is annoying!!! its annoying to just hold because it is very thin and yet it is extrememly wide and tall and just feels weird.. the camera is crap and takes pictures half the size of the screen instead of full screen photos.. when using a bluetooth headset you cant use custom ringtones and it sets to a crappy typical ring and it doesnt have very many features.. these are just a few problems i dont like this phone for... ive had this phone for just 5 days and im upgrading to a sony ericsson s710 tommorrow... if you want to know where to get that phone for $40 email me at email@example.com

Derek , You say the software for Video recording is on the motorola website .... cant find it ... could u post the link
hi guys, i had a question about the v3. On the scale of 1 (easy) to 10(hard)how difficult is the v3 the v3 to use. Please help because my dad has it still stuck in his head how hard it it to use a motorola in general especially the timesport. Please help, stef
Nalex, the OLD V3's don't have a video camera, only the NEW V3's are incorporated with one. If you purchased your V3 a few months back it wouldn't have it. But, there is a way to get video camera onto the OLD V3. Simply go to the Motorola Website and download the update software file for video camera for your OLD V3 and all should be working fine.
my friend got a sliver v3 and me a black i was suprise when i used his phone that his could record video while my dads silver one coulnt
hi ..i would like to know if there are any problems on this phone..the black one tht is..i'm not sure which to buy..the d500 or the v3 black.thanks a lot for ur help.
One more thing-Does anyone know how remove/delete web sessions?
Trying to set up GPRS, but when i try to update browser, it says im exceeding web sessions limit.
I recently bought the black version in SA(2nd hand). Haven't had any probs with it except the camera pics look fine just after they're captured, but look 'blocky' during later viewing.
What I would like to know however is Just how 'limited' is the black version? I paid slightly more for this reason alone.
And does anyone know where I can get a decent flip cover for the fone that wont drastically increase its size?
This phone is good, both in design and signal reception. But I have some problem with the blank screen, and sometimes automatically shutdown by them self. I dunno know how to solve this problem, do I need to re-install the firmware? If you want a mobile phone that have good quality, you better buy it, because the phone function (signal receiver, clear voice etc) is outstanding.
