i used a v300 and a v3 before the features suck and this motorola phone battery life sucks and by the way, people from all around the world mostly use nokia phones and i know it because i am a business man in nokia and i saw the poll rates! motorola also hangs for a matter, i know 3230 hangs but motorola phones hang a lot more than nokia
Your fren??!!? Have you use any Motorola phones before? I notice a lot of bad reviews were given by people who never used the phone before. Yes, some user do experience glicthes on the phone but do other phone from Nokia and Se are 100% trouble free? I don't think so. I've use Nokia and SE before too and they have their problems. Nokia? My 3230 off by itself when i put it in my pocket (battery problem?). My SE k700i always hang and the d-pad key spoilt after 2 months of usage. Come on...pls do not slam other phone if you haven't use it before.
ok guys, for those who's been having problems with locating/loading MP3's on the V3i you should have that flashed to another firmware as not only does it free up MORE built-in memory, it can also help to solve the 50-100 song limit imposed by iTunes.
as well I believe MP3 ringtones on Motorola's are limited to 30seconds long & it must be under a certain size i think.

u should go for nokia!! this motorola phone sucks!!!! my freind has a v3i phone and the keypad is not working well!!! motorola sucks especially in battery life!!!! go for nokia!! the battery life lasts for weeks after one week or go for SE!! motorola is the weakest dealer in cell phones!! SUCKER!!
what would happen if you put a 1gig sd in there? could you use 512's worth or nothing?
Nick....i totally agree with you. V3i is one of the good phone that i've used so far. U should post it on the comments under the review section so people can see it.
have someone put 1gb tflash in their v3i?i want to put 1gb memory but just scare if it not support it. someone got an advice?
Being a V3i user, I must comment the V3i review posted on this site:
The review is very subjective, frequently incorrect and obviously unfriendly to Motorola as a brand. Just look at some statements from the said review:
“Overall picture quality provided is rather poor” (!!! – comparing to what? It is well known that V3i camera pictures are of very good quality for a 1.2 mpx resolution)
“Camera creates strange vertical photos” (put it in a desired position for god’s sake, and it wont shot a car bumper vertically!!)
“Cameras: the megapixel is useless without a memory card” (of course one should save the picture onto a memory card, it’s no big deal)
And here’s more:
“Controls: further errors to comment on” (!)
“Messaging: poor iTap and unpractical keypad” (v3i messaging/keypad is the most comfortable I’ve used so far on a non-qwerty phone, please name one that is more user friendly)
“You may sometimes get confused as to what this or that menu option means” (yes, if you’re a 4 year old child)
“Synchronization and data transfers between PC and each of the phones require the installation of the new version of the software Motorola Mobile Phone Tools, which has to be bought additionally” (wrong, at least in my country)
“It seems as if Motorola failed to catch up with technological innovations” (!! - this one speaks for itself)
CONCLUSION: The review is not on the level of other reviews posted on gsmarena and the reputation of this site. I’d like to ask future v3i users to carefully take into consideration the statements from the above mentioned review, cause many of them are not benevolent to potential owners of V3i. (I’d also like to ask gsmarena not to remove my post from the site, and give a chance to large number of future users to read a different oppinion)

hi MOTO PEOPLE! i have recently bought this MOTO V3i and im really happy to have it but the problem is that i m not aware of it's function like i downloaded a song ia Bluetooth but now i cannot find it in my phone although the memory card memory is showing that its there but where i dont know ........now only u guys can help me out in finding that !!!!!!!!!!!
Just bought the phone last week in Malaysia. Pretty cool phone. Loving it. Just a matter of getting used to a few feature since my last phone was a Nokia. Haven't hooked / synced the phone to my pc yet. Not sure how it works. Other than that, excellent!
Bought it for MYR 870. Thats USD 230. (Full Spec with 64MB card).
1) Does anybody have clarity on phonebook capacity? V3i has limit of 1000 entries? Entires meaning 1000 numbers or 1000 names?
A name can have 7-8 numbers associated like main/home/mobile/work/fax etc. (if I enter Mr. Xxxx's home/work/mobile no, will be treated as 3 entries or one entry?
2) V3i having 256MB card, this restricts me storing up to 50 songs only. Is this a phone limit or memory card limit? Will it increase on upgrading a memory card to 512/1024?
