To 17 year old student... are u sure u only 17 or 71 years old??? People can write any opinions they like...u mentioned that u only 17 yeras old then how many hp u ever used? Pepole only telling us the bad & godd of this V3, if u dont like just out from this web & hope that never 'see' u again in tis web.
Can some1 help me thats got a v3, does the messages and wap softkeys beep long for a second when u press them. Not just 1 beep a longbeep about 1 second
This phone is big and wide and ugly.
The look already sucks.....function sucks too!
I just bought a V3 yesterday and i loved it at first, but after a few days of using it I found that it is terrible to use, it is so user UN-friendly. Can't MOTO make better phones?? Conclusion, THIS PHONE SUX!!!
To Mandy-I'm not a salesman...I'm just a college student who happens to like phones...just to make it clear. ^_^x
And about the beeping thing, go to ring styles, go to the details, look for the reminder option, and turn it off...that should stop the beeping.
i realy don't think that the problems are soft related.
it might be that the phone is too "crowded", making the phone too sensible....
i shoud like to crack open one (i am an electrical engineer and love to dismantle things)
damn' it realy makes me angry. it coud be such a nice gadget.
the soft "mobile phone tools" is realy the worst i ever met but that's another (sad) story. and btw i bought MPT "de luxe"...29$ thrown away.
well, like with girls, not very often they are beautiful AND smart...heheheheh
a few facts:
1. i love it when i got my first one.
2. after 6 hours the screen was a mess of lines and waves.
3. got it replaced with a new one.
4. loved it.
5. after 3 days the keypad died.
6. still love it and waiting for the replacement/
7. don't know if i'll be able to "survive" another dissapointment...
I called up Motorola & they said there is nothing they can do with the quiet speaker! All my friend's V3's have the same problem; I guess it must be some kind of software design fault!
Try look for other firmware version.
I haven't got the described problems on mine...
It's fairly easy to upgrade with the usb cable and some of the available software 'out there'
It took me a few hours to find the most appropriate software/firmware version for my purpose, and ten minuttes to upgrade.
If your using major languages there are several firmware versions available.
But only found one for danish ;-)
(Haven't saved the url's, sorry.)
Yes ann marie, sms entereing is EXTREMELY slow.
But the good news is the that the battery gets better after being charged and discharged a couple of times.
Keyboard repetition rate of a few strokes per second is really awful. My guess is that that the technicians have set this low rate to avoid mechanical contact-problems with the fancy keyboard. Might be the trade off for the nice looking keyboard....
Does anyone know if there is a hack where one could try to tune this? I could live with a few double strokes if I get a better repetition rate.
I turn my volume down to 0 when im sleeping and it doesnt make any noise. I hope this helps. Is there any way to put more than 1 mp3 file on this phone? is there any software to delete any of the standard polys on the phone? can u help please?
The speaker volume is too quiet even when I adjust it to the maximum of "7".
I suppose this is another fault of the V3. Can anyone help?
There is no way to turn off the message "BEEP". It is really annoying at night! My friends V80 & V600 do the same as my V3. Moto design is not so thoughtful!
Only got v3 2day and dont no much bout it. It beeps everytime i recieve a text message but i can amagine this can be turned off, or the phone put on silent for u 2 sleep
to BIG PIMPA....
congrat on getting a v3... since you got a v3. can you tell me whether a v3 beeps everytime after u received a text or when its on low batt. i got a v70 last time and it beep everytime i got a text. this gets me agitated when it happen during midnight.
(imagine your mobile beeping all night long)
Just took dilevery of my lovely V3 today. Already 5 people asked to see it and were amazed. Unfortunately i only managed to squeeze 1 mp3 onto it, can anyone tell me how to put more on it. This phone has surpassed its self and i dont regret buying it. It is unlike anything else out there on the market and looks like something from 50 years from now. This phone cost me £500 and its worth every bit. D500 is CHEAP and PLASTIC. Does not hold a candle to V3. Dont get D500 its black boring, go for style, GO FOR V3!
