Almost 4got, it use the free memory on the phone and not the memory card, so make sure u have enough memory to install a skin or skins.
1) You must have skiman (Skins Manager) version 0.0.7 or higher
2) You must install your motorola driver on your pc, sometimes it can be found in the drivers folder on the memory card.
3) Your phone must be set as data/fax connection, which is found in settings, connectivity and usb settings.
Once your phone is recognized by the program and the computer, to install a skin, press install in the skiman (Skins Manager), a window will appear, press ok, another window will open, from there u will look for the skins that u downloaded from the folder u stored them in, once found, look for the file with ski next to it, eg.(windowsvista.ski). select it, once u have done this it will write to your phone, once it states that it's ready, press F10 to restart your phone. Enjoy.

bought this phone a yr ago, apart from some technical difficulties, i liked the phone. Some features could have been improved like having 3G and greater memory capability. I have tried my heart out just to find if i can install new themes or skins in this phone. Is it possible? can any one help me on this?

Arifeen, u have to switch your usb to data connection. Also u must install the newest motorola driver, google it. u can install the driver once u downloaded it. Trust me, It works.
Dude we don't use themes anymore on motorola phones man, we use skins. get updated my fellow moto pal.
yeah you could try searching on google for themes for motorola / customize themes for motorola.after getting the themes pluck in your usb cable and just drag it into your phone
Moto skin manager is not working in my v3i.R u sure i can put 2 gb memory without any haste????
I want to use a 2 Gigabyte memory card and my set has Digital Audio Player instead of Itunes.What i have to do for putting a 2 gigabyte? How can i put custom themes and skins on my phone from pc?Its serious
try visiting http://www.modmymoto.com , u can receive some skins, themes is really outdated, skins are much cooler. Use the Skiman program to install the skins, which is found in the downloads section.
I don't agree with the ppl who says this phone is crap.
I've been using it for more than 8 months and the sound, picture, sms, etc. qualities still works great for me.
I especially enjoyed the Mp3 on this phone...the sound quality is the best! And as for not enough space...go buy yourself a freakin memory card!
hey princess, I really wish I was ur Moto Tzr V3i phone & I am sure i would not haver given you so much of trouble..
Anyways, I am a Nokia fan & know things about Nokia, about your V3i phone what I could say is that try contacting Moto tech people back in ur city, I guess they shud be able to fix ur problem.
