I had this phone for the past 3 months.So far no problem. To download the mp3 files you have to use the i-tunes to store the songs. presently only 50 songs can be downloaded into the I tunes,. This is the agreement between Motorola and Apple. There is a new version with Motoplayer instead of I tunes but maximum -100 songs.
The audio quality is crispy clear and compact when I compared with My Samsung X700 , K750i and even N70.( try it if you dont believe ).
But using the earpiece , however , it cant beat SE 800.
If you set a specific ringtone to a caller - when the caller sms you , you will received the same assigned tone. So far I had explore and there is no way to have a "beep" tone to a caller with an assigned ringtone.
The Camera is not as good as Samsung, SE and Nokia tough it is 1.23 mp. Video recording can be set for MMS or unlimited - depend on your memory card. But the playback not that good.
For pic , if you are reciving pict of about 100kb or above , the hp will not able to read it. The only way for you to store in the phone is to download the pic in the computer and use the motorola tools that comes with a CD, to transfer the file to your phone. The tools will reduced the pict and will able to store it in the phone - troublesome.
The metallic material for the button is not easily smudges compare to V3 or L7.
For missed call , motorola v3i dont have any specific function for it. If there is a miss call , you will notice numbers without any "tick" on the "Received call" function. No tick means "miss call" and with "tick" answered call. The same caller can make 10 miss call , but the phone will only captured one - the latest time - you will not be able to see the time of the other 9 calls. So when you recieved miss call ( without tick ) dont think that it is only one call. It can be 10 or 20 calls that the poor person made to you. The engineer who design this need to give a little knock on the head.
If any Motorola enginer are reading this , I hope they can have an audio player with unlimited songs. Defeat the purpose of buying bigger memory card when only 50 songs can be downloaded.
The picture album interface is bad and I doubt so those who buy it will store a lot of photo in their Motorola V3i. But for songs its worthwhile.
And please improve you call register (miss call )interface.
Overall is a good phone if you can cope with these little flaws. Dropped it twice , once with casing and one wihtout, about the waist height. So far its still working perfectly.
Hi. Is there any way to using the memory card to save ur contacts on? the phone only takes 1000 entries in total. I have about 1500, which doesnt fit on the phone itself. If I could somehow make it save the contacts on the memory card, it would be great.
to jose: about your issue of trnasferring mp3 files from pc to phone. first, i believed you've installed the motorola phone tools okay with your mobile phone. same what happened to my v3i. I won't be able to use the USB connection to transfer mp3 files. So, i used bluetooth connection. Its slow, but it gets the job done.
I bought the v3i 2 weeks ago. I'm situated here in Manila. Everything going fine except that i have trouble accessing the mp3 files i downloaded from my pc going to the phone's sd card. It simply shows NOTHING when i look for the mp3 files in the digital audio player of this phone. Anyone knows how to go about this? Just post it pls. Thanks a lot!
Just looking on the motorola website and they have a RAZR V3c but i cant seem to find any information on it any know anything? Also does anyone know when the v3i will be in stores in Australia, thanks

answer the guys question below!!!! thats a good question man!!! i want it answered thanks people!!! i know all of u had that problem before so whats the solution??!!!
My wife's just got this phone - really pleased with it BUT (yeah there's always a BUT!) can anyone tell me how once the ringtone is assigned to an individual the message tone can just be normal - at the moment if she recieves an SMS from someone their ringtone sounds as opposed to a small 'beep' - She just wants the ringtone to sound when a call is coming in NOT an SMS message too.
this phone is awesome!!! thanks for your help on the ringtone msg!!! this phone is pimp!!!! dont listen to those negative comment!!
this phone is gangsta.... get it!!! yeah!!!
hey hi guys...im lookng forward to buy this phone...can u give out its besst deals.and wanted to knw its performanceis it better thn other mobiles??if yes in which aspects..?does this mobile have external add on memory?? how does the mp3 work? have fun guys..
anyone knows how to disable the max capacity of songs, my itunes can only store 50 songs
This has to be the worst phone to be put out with motorola.
Impossible to charge. I have to fumble with the charger for at least 10 minutes to get it to charge. Only to have it stop charging 2 minutes into it. Having to fumble with the charger for 10 minutes again.
Impossible for others to hear me. Once again, motorola has the classic problem in which during calls, the microphone of the phone does not work, unless in speaker phone mode. I can hear callers, but they can't hear me.
Every little software program on this phone causes it to freeze.
Drops calls like crazy. Infact, CNN stated that motorola is doing a recall on this phone.
If this phone were $50, i'd say buy it. Otherwise, stay far away from this phone. It's about as useful as a cold.
im planning to buy this mobile in the next few days....can u plz tell me some of the things im doubting abt...?
1- How much is the built-in memory...?

Does Motorola V3i have a delivery report for sending SMS messages?, I' ve heard that Motorola series V500 didn't have this function so you had to type ! before sending a text message if you wanted a delivery report. If anybody who has the phone knows, I would appreciate the information, thanks!
