the sqeaking sound when the flip is opened is probably the hinge problem, but mine doesn't have any problems yet.
plus, the switching of storage devices is to help organise the stuff better, like you don't have to choose to store whether in card or phone memory everytime u capture a pic, e.g.
the camera is just a 1.23mp camera, its really not that fantastic, but it does come in handy for casual snappin of pics, yeah?
plus, do u know that you can create a photo album in the phone? =)
i have this v3i for more than 1month, and it hasn't caused any problems for me at all.
It is compatible with iTunes, after all Apple collaborated with Motorola to have itunes installed in this phone.
And i'm quite certain you can't answer the phone w/o flippin it open first, unless you're using a earpiece or bluetooth headset. It will be quite pointless to answer the phone with the flip closed right, since the beauty of a flip phone is to .. flip it! =)
It has hanged on me like, once? just that one time, and after that its perfect. plus, i love the speaker phone function, i can simply place it on my table and chat while i do other things w/o hassling with the phone.
I want to buy a v3i, now I have a nokia 6230. This v3i it's a veryy good loking phone but after I red all your posts I don't know what to do. I do not want to buy a stupid phone, I am a big nokia fan, I have never had a motorola. I am not sure what to do.....
I had to chose between a Nokia and this. And the V3i just broked down in the hands of the women who wanted to sell it to me. It was brought up right from the box, brand new, and it just didn't work. So... guess what i decided to buy... a Nokia for sure :)
my razor started acting up. when i hit any button it will only go to the ring styles and nothing else. if anyone can help me it would be much apprecitated. thanks.
Its nice to look, but disturbing to use speciely to receive a call, when press the answer key, it hangs up and the main lcd lost the features. to start the phone,it must close and then open.pl. give the solution.
i had nearly gone for this phone cos of its sleek design but with these unpleasant comments, i did rather settle for nokia 8800 sleek.
hey, can everybody say how can answer phone without openning phone? even Samsung N100 can answer it without openning phone door.
hey ??? agreed with you.
No doubt it is a nice sleek phone but no doubt it is also a stupid phone too !!
Not able to read big memory pic. Tick and no tick to indicate miss call ( stupid rite ), squeeking sound when flip open, lousy camera , switching of storage device, no able to create folder for files,and the list goes on. But this stupid phone has a very good sound quality for its mp3. No doubt about that.( consolation...at least )
Guys dont be too happy. 6 months used and problems starts. Even at their service centre they had special booth cater for V3i.Wonder why ??
Times will tell. Most of you will have the chance to visit your respectives service centres. Cheers.

i think the motorola v3i is fabulos i luv it 2 bits. i've only had it for 4 months.the only thing that i don't lyke so much about it is the fact that the screen gets mucky really easily & it also gets scrtched easily apart frm that i luv it
