Well I just aquired this device and it offers much more than what I expected. All features work perfectly (I haven't tested bluetooth yet), battery life seems quite long while using GPRS for hours, with EDGE that makes browsing the web much faster and downloads completed almost instantly, video resolution for recording and playback up to 320x240, and so on. The landscape-format camera and picture browser is quite interesting.
The phone actually has 20 MB internal memory, not 16. It supports up to 2GB miniSD according to the manual. The phone is recognized as a standard removable storage instantly by Windows, and data copying is fast as well with the USB 2.0 connection.
It has 5 or 6 skins, the back one looks specially cool on my model which is black as well.
If you are not sure about this phone, I can assure this: you won't regret aquiring it at all. It seems to have more to offer than the eye can see.
Poor battery life is one of the old Motorola downsides. Why, oh why do they sell telephones with weak batteries? I like Motorola phones but their batteries are ordinary crap.
Yes, it definitely can support a 2GB micro card - I have one in mine, no problem.
Any ideas from anyone on the awful battery life and how it can be improved?
Hey Im about to recive this phone and Im in grade 8 at skool and im wondering iff the screen wont like scratch and ive got a pouch thingy for it and is it easy to clean n w/e?
one more question, when you look up a contact in the phonebook, can you search for more than the first character of the name? for example, if i want to search for "MICHAEL" can i type M then I to narrow down my search? Or i can only type M then scroll all the way down to MI...thanks
Hi to all Z3 users, i am currently using a V3 and find that the sms is super lagging, is it the same for the Z3? I dun type very fast but for the V3, i can type an entire sentence then you see the text appearing char by char. only then to realise that some words are wrong and you have to scroll back to delete the entire word and type again...is it this way for the Z3? Thanks
Got this phone about a month ago. I'm quite impressed with it. Photos are good, music quality through loudspeaker also good. What makes the phone good is all the little extras that i keep on discovering every day (not the manual reading type)The only thing that i dislike is that the phone is a bit slow, and keeping it clean is a pointless effort. Battery life could also have been better, but not the worst Ive had. Does anyone know how to assign a different msg tone and ringtone to a caller?
I love this phone. I've stuck with Nokias usually, with the odd foray into Samsungs, but have to say this looks better, feels better and is a doddle to text with. My only gripe is the battery life, which is one tenth of that advertised! I only use the phone for talk about 20mins a day and probably 10 - 20 texts but the battery only lasts two days max. Does anyone have any ideas as to why there is such a huge discrepancy? Or where I can get an appropriate battery with improved life?
Got this phone as a second phone to my Windows Mobile device (HTC Excalibur). I wanted a phone that was better for talking and smaller. It seems to meet that criteria. I'm impressed with the quality of the device and its look and feel. Very convenient to use and fits nicely in the pocket.
I was surprised that I could sync my Outlook contacts so easily and wirelessly. Worked the first time. I have not synced the calendar and probably will not since I continue to use the Excalibur for that kind of thing.
I would call this a decent phone and a bit slow. The camera seems decent. Just more of a fun phone.
I haven't been able to sync with my hotmail or yahoo mail. If anyone can help with that, let me know.
Motorola has a wide range of good phones but there are two problems which I have observed by using a motorola phon
1 Resale in india is poor
2 Keep on changing designs of the same model frequently
the easiest way and safe to have time on ur screen is try to go to motorola website and use ur usb cable to download the latest software version.after i download it..it's up and running ang quite way too faster than the original software when i have this..
Well... it could have been better, the showing time in the main screen problem and the low batery life, are serious issues.
The last one, it`s even worst when you use the digital audio player. Does anybody knows how to turn off the screen`s light when that application is runing?
i got this phone for a couple of days now and it's great, one thing is, how do you guys implement mp3s into the phone itself? I have the cable and the software but it doesn't seem to be able to upload any music. Can somebody help me out?
the phone comes with old software you can download the latest software for this phone here
this fixes the clock problem and adds some other stuff.
yes you can do anyting that doesnt require entering numbers when the phone is still closed. it has T9 but i cant tell you how to use it cuz i never use T9 on any of my phones i can never figure that thing out. and finally if you have big fat fingers, yes using the buttons might be hard cuz they r really close together but it works fine for me. only problem i have with this phone is with T-mobile..network just literally makes me sick. alwyz getting lost when i need to send a text then coming back when i put it back down. good phone overall.. hope i answered ur ??
i'm ordering this phone soon and i have a couple questions, PLEASE someone answer!
-can you close the phone and still talk?
-does it have t9 texting?
-is it difficult to text on this phone, like the buttons?
