Nice essay u have. one of the loopholes is why the USB is only 1.x. since for itunes u cannot transfer songs directly to the memory card using a full speed usb card reader, if one wishes to use itunes,transfer of music can only be via the usb data cable which is not fast enough. if itunes could accept direct copying to the memory card then maybe the usb speed would not really be an issue, but this is not the case.
Motorola has launched a really ice-breaking phone for its innovation in design and size for its typical candy bar solution which is meant for the fashion lovers and elegant feelings especially while you are talking in the gathering. Yes! You are absolutely right if you are thinking of ROKR considering at the opening lines of my personal review. Taking into accounts its features as a cell-phone, connection and calls' voice quality is excellent and this is what that truly differentiates Motorola from all its competitors in the global market. Especially it is far ahead from all other manufacturers' products if you talk about the voice clarity and its speaker. Phone book is excellent in terms of search options but not up to the level of NOKIA – the big gun and our stylish Sony Ericsson – a true fantasy and dream-weaver. It really annoys if one want to sort out the contacts only from SIM or those copied or saved on the Phone book. Phone offers very nice and distinctive iTAP solution for SMS. Bluetooth so far, is pathetic for its lowest speed especially when receiving data from the other compatible device. iTunes application aptly fulfills the needs of those who love music. Comparing the aforesaid application with W800i' walkman offering, Motorola tenders rather a good quality sound especially when you want to use the phone' speakerphones. Surround sound is really catchy and one notices this difference between the two devices with naked eyes. But please avoid expecting anything more from this ROKR and not the ROCK as you need to re-charge it daily especially if you hear the music for just less than 1 hour, you talk for more than 55 minutes and you just play with its other menu items and only touch Bluetooth to check whether it's detecting or being detected which as a whole takes 20 minutes. Even don't expect VGA camera's worse results which you might have got from Motorola RAZR, here it is worst than all the cams and the captured pictures are even not likely to be displayed on the phone's own high-rated display or to be used as wallpapers. USB does not help you to re-charge the phone rather its continuous use for the purpose to synchronize with the PC consumes the battery so fastly and sometime your data may be in danger to be lost. However, get excited if you merely are in search of some very first-rate mobile phone with top-class voice and SMS capabilities along-with charismatic design and top-class music player, ROKR is really geared up to serve your purpose and this naive doesn't ask for any higher price rather it is easily approachable for almost more than 60% mobile users. Isn't it enough to cover its all loopholes alone!!!
A nightmare in compare to samsung d500? With samsung you have to push 30 times on a button to send a textmessage to contact in the contactlist. Motorola is better build, much more stable and easier 2 use. I had the samsung d500 and i found it a terrible phone, ok it slides open but thats far everything.
I find the phone a nightmare to use compare to my old Samsung D500. The phone software is so un-user firendly.
Quick question - Anyone know how to change the SMS message tone? Help will be greatly appreciated.
can we download applications like opera mini and same???
do reply cause my i depend on it
I forgot to add: since I bought the phone in Mauritius, I got the Asia-Pacific version with a 256 MB TransFlash card. I'm planning to buy a 512 MB card as soon as I have enough funds. For now, I will do with what I have and load full albums as one single mp3 file reduced in quality (probably 96 kbps). I'll see how many albums I can load at one go. For now, I'm enjoying the soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"... "I'm a man of constant sorrow........." No more !!!
I received my ROKR today and the first impression it gave me is : AWESOME !!! Connecting to iTunes on my brother's PC was seamless and although file transfer was quite slow, everything went fine. The only trouble so far with the handset has been the clumsy joystick... They're definitely not made for fat fingers. Sound quality is excellent and the flashing lights will surely make the joy of teenage users or people with a strong psychedelic mindset... As for the rest, the phone is a pure-bred Motorola with lots of exciting features and the VGA camera, though not quite the state-of-the-art type, is very handy to get pictures of your loved ones, friends, family or colleagues for use as celler photo ID. You can get round the phone's 5MB limit if you're feeling like having many mp3 ringtones : simply trim down the mp3s you want to use as tones by cutting length and bitrate quality... For the rest, just sit back and relax, the ROKR can do anything... or almost.
HI To all .When transfering songs from my frenz fone to mine,it say that file is corupt.Does any 1 noe y?
A good set one can have. All I want to ask is that dose anyone knows how to set MP3 as your ringingtone in this mobile. Cauz the type of phone says MP3, ACC etc. So where and how...
Fantastic phone. I cannot understand the sense in the needless bashing. The specifications are given, so don't buy it if you want additional or enhanced features. The lack of message space is a trait of all Motorolas and nothing new.
I love it

I heard that this phone can only play up to 192kbps, is this true?
And how can you activate the 10 free itunes download when you get the phone?
In the Standard Battery, what´s the mAh of the battery?
I recieved my Motorola ROKR E1 in the post yesterday.
I am going to write the things i like and the things i dont about the handset and then give it an overall rating after i have finished. I hope that the review will benefit people interested in the ROKR.
The phone looks great. I really like the white and silver finish of the mobile. It really is like no other on the market. The keypad backlight is also very bright and adds to the quality feel that the phone posesses.
I-Tunes! I think that this is a great addition to the phone. I have to laugh though when people list bad points such as "only 100 songs can fit onto the phone". Oh what a shame. A PHONE that only plays 100 songs. I think some reviewers expect a little bit too much.
Anyway as far as the sound quality and ease of use - I-Tunes is a really good function that this phone has.
The phone comes with EVERYTHING when bought brand new. I mean data cable, 512 MB memory card (Trans-flash) etc etc. I know that Motorola are the only company who issue data cables with their phones on a regular basis which i think should come as standard with others.
The price! I got my ROKR for £79.99 off O2 and it was SIM free so i'm using my Orange SIM in it. I think that its a great price for what you get.
One thing i like a lot about my Moto, is the fact that you can change the themes and the skins on the phone which allows for an awful lot of customisation. It can change the way the phone looks instantly so it always feels fresh.
Texting is easy and user friendly with this model. It keeps up quite well and the input system remembers your favourite words which i find quite handy.
Rythm lights. These are cool. They light up whenever you recieve a text or incoming call wihch is another unique touch by Motorola.
The phone boasts really good features such as Bluetooth (which works perfectly). I have tested with a SE K700i and a Samsung D600 and transfers have gone smoothly with no problems.
Camera. Ok - I HATE Motorola cameras. They are absolutely rubbish no matter what model it is. They really are terrible. The biggest pain is the band that fills up half the screen when your in viewfinder mode. Alls it does is say how much memory you have. The worst thing is its still there when you view the picutres so they are only ever viewable at half the screens size which i think is really bad. If you want a good camera look eslewhere. It suffices though for silly snaps on the go however but if you want a decent one go to Sharp.
The joystick. I find this ok most of the time but if your hands become clammy or your finger is wet you are gonna have difficulty using the joystick. Becuase its metal and round like a ball almost your finger has to be bone dry in order to be able to navigate easily with it.
My final bad point is the fact you cant upload your pictures or transfer images from your comp to the phone. If you can i dont know how becuase the only CD you recieve is for I-Tunes and not the usual Motorola phone tools. If anyone knows how to transfer and if ive just missed somethin silly then let me know. Thanks.
Well thats it. All in all i am pleased i picked this handset as my next phone. The good points far outweigh the bad but the camera does let it down an awful lot. In conclusion i rate this phone....
Hope this helps some people when they are trying to decide if this is the phone for them.
iTunes is a media player like realplayer etc, and for the windows problem i'm thinking that you will have to get xp or 2000
