I was also a previous V8 user and currently using E8. If you've been using V8, I'm sure you already knew the procedures involved concerning the contacts and music transfer between V8 and your PC via Motorola Phone Tool. It's exactly the same for E8 since E8's utilizing the same Linux OS like V8, difference is E8 has different version. (Doesn't really matter on the version, technically, they both operate about the same). Even with the interface difference on E8 with Fastscroll wheel, the operation is very user friendly, you don't need the manual for that. I really like the E8 but still missed some advantages of V8, guess nothing's perfect after all. For me, the V8's signal reception and voice quality are better than E8 eventhough E8's are already good for me. 100 Moto has the same opinion too, maybe due to the flip design of V8. Other than that, E8 would have the upper hand on memory card slot, morphing keypad and fastscroll wheel. Even though both phones are using Linux OS, you'll find V8's smoother and faster in terms of key-pressing-to-screen-response time, even though the difference could be in mili-seconds and it's occasional and not all the time. If you're so used to the speed the way V8 responded, like me intially, you'll expect E8 to behave the same, so you need to manage your own expectation on this aspect prior to buying E8. For me this is not an issue. The "occasional lag" is possibly due to the Morphing keypad, fastscroll wheel or maybe the full haptics keypad that added more loads to the same 500Mhz processor that both phones are using. Another info that you might need to be aware of is that some American E8 users have been facing problem with E8, particularly E8 that are from T-xxxile (hope you could figure the "x"s up). I truly believe the problems they faced are not phone based but more on modifications performed on the phone.
There you have it, good luck to your new E8.
Does anyone know if your contacts, music etc are transferrable from an E8 phone onto PC and vice - versa? i currently have a V8 and am looking to change to E8 with minimum compromise if possible.

hallo! a question... can you change themes or screensavers on rokr e8? can you download them?

Pinoyrocks, 03 Feb 2009Mine never shows "message sending" and it had pissed me. What I did was turn on the "Delive... moreyuppers. and it works fine...this is an issue with your sp not the hardware....toomany people think hd hd when in fact it's the sp screwing around with their settings...have your sp reflash the device then do a backup with your sw on your pc for backup
m0sk, 16 Feb 2009so what is the differences between a modded e8 and unmodded one Hi m0sk, the default E8 only has 1 skin, and the menu interface is somehow slow. Mods can make you add skins and other customizations you want on your phone. I hope this answers your question.

We've dozens of comments here regarding T-mobile has messed up with the software of Moto and made them performs nothing but making / receiving calls.
this phone lags! i kind of regret getting it. it was a birthday present but it made me reconsider actually wanting it. other than the lagging its fine but sometimes i get frustrated having to wait for it to "unfreeze" itself
