I have had my phone for 8 months and twice all of the buttons except for the hang up/ power button has stopped working. The first time they said that it was because of water damage. I was confused because I had never gotten any liquid on it. 3 months later I have the same problem and before I take it in I'd like to know if anyone else has had this problem with the motorola ROKR E1... if you have let me know please. I don't want to pay $200 all over again to get it fixed. This has happened twice in way less than a year all new buyers beware.

hey javier, may i know where you download your skin? and how? is it free?
something just happened to my phone and i was wondering if anybody could help as i am not very good at phones. I was playing a song on itunes and then it sort of froze so i turned it off then on again. However when i turned it on again i cannot enter the menu, or enter in numbers. However i can recieve calls and connect it to the computer still. I do not have a pin or anything. I just happened suddenly. I also tried switching sim cards.
I'm in Australia
U can only only have max 512mb memory card with E1. With Music files (50/100 for itunes & endless under the ringtone section), Pictures files, Videos (Clips are time limited by Motorola for a reason) & your own download of video-no time limit(DVD & VCD too by using a converter to have then in 3gpp format)
Why do u still want to burden your memory card with sms saving if it is that important, lock it up to protect it for reference when u need it.
Just think, if u are have a product to sell will u include everything at one go ? If u will then better don't be in sales.
well the phone has good quality overall but it's missing one thing.u can't store your text messages on your memory card :(
ROKR E1 USERS
I'm from Singapore and I would like to inform Singapore E! user that ver 42R is for Singtel subscribers and 46R for Starhub subsribers.
I'm wondering after reading the earlier post whether if it is correct to say which is latest ver based on just the version number.
Anyway I can speak for other countries but here Motorola Singapore has confirm that to-date there has been no update of the software since launch last year. My one year old E! with ver 42R is still the latest.
Please correct me if I'm wrong. And let us know for those who have the so call latest software what the difference and improvement.
this is the best phone i ever had. i hack my phone and know i can put more than 200 songs on my itunes and the sound is amazing. You can download a lot of skins too. the best phone i ever have and in a good price.
i really think this phone is a little bit complicated but i think you have to give us more information about the usage.
Official Motorola drivers released 2006.12.14 :
@albert u need Motorola USB Drivers , if u cant find them or need help email me : koorosh.naderi (at) gmail (dot) com
@CTG. thanks for the assist. i have another question. i already have it by googling. but, when i was installed MS, it asked me to install MCU data logger? where i can get mCU data logger?
@sweetooth 79R is newer of course! but use 49R believe me ;)
for the first question in my country E1 costs almost 160 $ ( SE W800 costs 280 $ ) so im not goning to waste 120 bucks for a little faster phone
if u want to know more about your phone go to MotoModders.net forums u can find newer iTunes too. safe Modding ;)
Have U got it figure out yet ?
The adapter is for U to convert by putting yr microsd card into it, to be used as a standard SD card, notice the size. Same with mini Sd card too.
So by all means DON'T PUT THE MICRO CARD IN THE ADAPTER AND TRY TO INSERT THAT INTO THE E1.
First time here though I've used E1 for more than a year.
This phone requires some understanding, once U got it, U will be rewarded handsomely.
Bear with me. I too felt that 50 songs limit for S'pore and 100 for Europe wastoo little. What I did was create playlists of songs I like in various situation/occasions and sync them. I fill up the phone with rest of songs (limited by yr memory card) on the ringtone section. It works for me.
As to the volume of songs, hit the song title in itune, select get info. U can adjust the volume higher. Understand that the tiny speaker do not produce super base. Goto the equalizer preset and get the settings U R happy with. Set your own type if U must rather than use the preset.
If the source (songs) is soft in nature. Pls use editing software to increase the volume prior to loading to phone. The songs playing from my phone never fails to impress all around me.
Let U in on a known secret, even Motorla staff agrees with me and took my tips. They also advised me to stick to E1 cos' as compared to V3? & E2 E1 sound is the best (got vibration, others don't)ever try putting this phone on the table and be amazed how different the music sounds.
If U are still around, let me share with u somemore. This phone package does not come with a converter program to gpp3. Don't worry, get nokia pcsuite from yr friend rather that used priated copies of gpp3 converter, the sound & video lousy. Remember to set option to unlimited else only short clips are done.
Don't be greedy, convert only short movie or part of it, remember nobody hangs aroung to see the whole show. Let them thinks and wonder why yr phone is able to play movie. I had my son's short video nursery ryhmes converted and download to E1. Sure keeps him quite & still on long journey.
Sad to say, due to the screen size & other functions offered by N73, I past it on to my wife which was using a C550 (More than 3 yrs old and still working fine.)
First time using not Motorola phone, cos' the E2 offered in S'pore looks yak and the white version was not brought in after appeal by more than 30 E2 wanna buyer. Anyway, my frank opinion, Others maybe louder, but without the quality of E1, its all noise.
Thanks for your patience. A wise man says

ROKR E1 OWNERS WE ARE A BLESSED LOTS
