I hope I'll like this phone, and I hope MOT will fix the BUGS BUGS BUGS in their software... Have had phone for about 48hrs.
MAJOR BUG: Phone book entries (stored in phone memory) DISAPPEAR -> edit a phonebook entry to add a picture, it works, but another phonebook entry (often right next to the one you've added picture to) is GONE. VANISHED into thin air...
Volume is way too low for my ears - especially in noisy areas. Plug in the included headset - but look out, sometimes plugging it in while on a call will DISCONNECT the call!
Likewise, pressing volume control while on a call may result in disconnect. Hmmm.
Far as I can tell, there's no way to select whether you want only contacts in phone shown (no SIM entries), or vice-versa. My Nokia let me choose both, phone or SIM only...
If you put phone in the included carry case, it's way too easy to accidentally press volume or other buttons when removing it. This can change the ringing profile...
My iTunes isn't working and motorola is not doing much to help. Pls check the itunes when u buy.
i have the v3i for 2 weeks now. i think it's a great phone & is a catch with it's price. the only problem i have is where to find the site to download it's theme & skins. mobile9 has themes but don't have skins. please help. tnx
Does anyone have any problem with the VM? When I have a new VM, the VM indicator doesn't show, but it sends me a text message with a blank body and sender is "_@". Also, when I call to check my VM, it will automatically send me another text message with another blank body and sender to be "a little tower looking icon and then @" Please help!!!
Men!!! RV3 is truly the world most sexiest fone i thought it was just a lie when i heard the advert on radio but since i got my own i've truly seen and believed that Motorola really did a great deal of research, Qudos to the Moto Company.
Just got this phone and it's absolutely CRAP!!! Stylish but ultimately undependable.
Hey Bilbo, missed calls and recieved are under one title, if they are missed, they don't have a "tick" next to them, if they are answered then they will have a "tick" next to them. Fair enough, though i do see the fact of not having 10 complete missed and received each.
Fez, it's because the pictures are indeed to large, try resizing your picture on your PC first and try again, happened to me, i resized and worked just fine.
i have this phone.. but im facing this one problem which i dont know why. have you guys try uploading some pictures from your computer into your phone? .jpg format ofcourse. but when you try to view it in the phone, the file appear to be too large it says. any idea why?
Woww! At last i have my dream phone! I just bought it yesterday at ebay ph for php17k.. I am just starting to explore it., and i see no problem using it. Pictures are clear and very crisp. But im just wondering why miscalls are place on received calls??
hey Hardy Thomas,
I respect your loyalty and opinion towards moto. But must i saw it is after all your opinion. Don't get me wrong, I own a V3i myself and i abs. love it. I am however always been a nokia fan, but i do admit they suxed at flips and moto always dominated in that department. But i would wait till the nokia 6131 comes out before i get into any final conclusions. As to the softwares and shortkeys you mention. Nokia is well equiped with all of it. Statistic speak for themselves, nokia has for a while and remains the best user interface and most user friendly menues. But anyhow, i guess someone used to a Siemens all their lives would say boo to both nokia and moto haha.
Motorola RZR V3i!!!!! its awesome and elegant... easy to use and its reliable phone
I dunno why ppl using nokia are so possessed with that pathetic phone... the worst of the worst user interface.. and its menu... the most Cumbersome. One struggles while searching on the sound volume control
Moto on the other hand has these cool shortkeys right on its directional keys.. For nokia users they should see. press the down Directional key when in the home screen and you get "contacts". the right Directional key you get access the the sounds and ring toes etc. The left Directional key and you get your photo, camera etc. and the top Directional key you get your bluetooth etc. Moreover this phone has an outstanding display and camera. I have made an entire brochure for my company using snaps taken from this phone. Thirdly. this phone has an amazing speed. Nokias are crappy. one application runs in one and doesnt in another (even if its the same 60 series phone). This aint with motorolas.
Nokia users.. grow up to motorola
i got the RAZR v3i and its great!...but it doesnt have the itunes. how do i get it
i was wondering, does the RAZR V3i support a2dp and avrcp profiles? (that is stereo sound and music control over BT) so it could be used in combination with a BTstereo headset,
what other (motorola) phones support a2dp and avrcp?
i love dis phone.. its has such a great design and its very slim.. i'm proud to be he owner of this phone.. my name is bond.... james bond (007)
I would like to get a v3i but I need to know the following b4 I get one cos I am using a N6670 which is very customizable in term of functions. Then I can compare and decide to get it or not.
These questions are base on a newly bought v3i without any mod done.
1. Ringtunes cannot be asigned individually to different contacts. True ?
2. After I asigned a ringtune. All calls and SMS will use that same ringtune? Or call tune and SMS tune can be different ?
3. Pix and Video can be saved directly into the TF card ?
4. Any limitation on recording time of video (like 5 mins or 10 mins) ? Or its no limit but depending on the size of the TF card ?
5. Zooming in and out can be done during video recording ?
6. Can you choose over which format to record video since it support 3gp and mp4 ?
Hope the existing users can help out on this to decide to get 1 or not. Thank you.
the search for contacts sucks. if you have been a nokia user, you will need to painfully unlearn the easy way and learn the quirky way of doing things.....the sync software has already crashed my machine once and now it refuses to install.
here is my advice: don't buy this phone
