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!
For those of you who don't like it, it's only normal, YOU'RE JEALOUS!
It's an incredible phone. The best mobile phone in the world! Bravo MOTO!
THE WHOLE DESIGN EXTREMELY UN-USER FRIENDLY!
You must be a salesman. Pls. do not waste your breath and our time here, thankyou.
To Big Pimpa-choose between the D500 and the V3...don't get the 6170...Nokia doesn't know how to make good clamshell phones.
To Ram-can you give us specific (and VALID) reasons why you think that Moto sucks?
To newc0895-exactly! This is primarily a phone, and as a phone, this ia actually very good.
To Mandy-This has no substance? Compare this with Nokia's so-called fashion phones (7260, 7270, 7280)...those three phones look really bad...and those are phones that have no substance.
V3 has no substance!
Tired of the look after a week of ownership!
This big phone is so un-user friendly!
I just got the Motorola V3 yesterday and am very happy with it. No you can't store loads of mp3s on it but if I want to do that I'll buy an ipod. Its looks are fantastic and this is the real reason for getting one. I had it at a New Years Eve party and everyone wanted one based on the looks alone. If you really are into all the fancy techno features then this phone may not be for you, go for the D500 but if you want a phone that makes calls, sends texts and looks out of this world then get yourself one of these.
Hi no the d500 does not have a memory card slot. It has 80MB of standard memory. The V3 only allows you to play with 5MB of their memory. I am currently looking at 3 phones. The V3, D500 and stainless-steel nokia 6170. I still havent made up my mind. To HOTTE_LIPZ 71 im from Ireland Woooo Hoooo!
To BIG PIMPA-the D500 has a memory card slot, ryt? Anyway, I guess so...although that is more exclusive...but it still has a feature list made of crap!
to HOT_LIPZ 71-no prob! And I'm not from the US or UK...I'm from the Philippines. ^_^
this phone looks fabulous but the features r shit and the camera is ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL, but then again, if you want a phone just for the looks, go for it
Happy New Year everyone!!! I'm excited to buy a new fone this year. Hey BIG PIMPA & ^_^x thanx 4 ur suggestions. I hope everything you said would help me make my decision...By the way, are u guys from UK or US? well, juz asking. Later! =)
U cant even put 1 full mp3 on a v3. u can put 20 on a d500. Still im gettin the v3 for the looks!
Again, let us not compare this phone to the S700 and the P910...this is in a totally different class...the S700 is a multimedia phone and the P910 is a smart phone..this is a fashion phone...and if you don't really need the features (and all you want are the good looks), then yes, it is worth all the money your gonna pay for it.
To Hotte_Lipz 71-as I said earlier, if all you want are the looks and you don't really need the multimedia features of the E398, then it is worht your money. Now, if you like the features of the E398, then just get yourself another one. ^_^x
To Big Pimpa-it can play mp3s but there's no way you can fit a whole song into the phone...the onboard memory is not enough.
To FS-please don't be unfair. Don't say that someone who is a fan of mobile phones will change this in 3 months. The only reason you're saying that is because you're judging the phone based on what it doesn't have...for most mobile fans I know, the great reception alone is enough for them to want to keep this phone forever.
Good looking and handsome phone in design. But not worth for $$$. I bet that if u r mobile phone fans, u will change this phone within 3mths!! Really not worth for $$$. RM2,799 in Malaysia!! With this price u can get P900 or S700! Even E680 is better!
does the v3 have mp3? To HOTTE_LIPZ 71
It is worth ur money if u want something truly unique that other people will not have and get very jealous of yoy. It makes you look rich looking and celebs have it! Jordan and Peter Andre and its featured in the Gwen Stefani - What u waiting for video
I lost my E398 last month and now I'm planning to buy a new fone early next year (2005). Before, I was considering V3 as one of my choices because it really caught my eye when I 1st saw it at d mall. Its high-class design & elegance really impressed me a lot. But now, after reading some of the comments here (esp the negative ones) it made me think about what this fone really has to offer aside from its standout appearance... Is it really worth my money?
I happened just get my V3 and I haven't done with it yet. I think the sms is slow, most of the time is like lagging. And the battery, it doesn't last long as I expected. It even last for only like 1 or 2 days. The design is not really that nice neither, since its true that it is thin but the width ... it is just too wide.
