T-Man, 11 Jan 2009What I've heard as of 1/10/2009 from a T-Mobile representative, Motorola is now DISCONTINUING ... moreAlthough I can't say whether what you've heard were accurate or not, even if it's true, keep in mind that in business world today, news can be "created" & "distributed" by competitors to damage other competing products. I know in my industry (which is not mobile phone), there are stuff like this happening when a competitor company comes out with an award winning product that keeps other companies envied, so this is part of business - to sell & make profits. This is however, my personal opinion, maybe it's not happening here but we can't rule out the possibilities. For me, reviews only takes up about 30 to 40% of my score, the rest, 60 to 70% of it will depends on my own judgement thru actual physical test on the product.
So far my E8's performing according to its specs. I've encountered only one minor problem earlier but that has been put to rest after a warranty claim from the local authorised Moto Service centre. I'm really happy with E8's performance thus far and have decided to use it for some time before my next upgrade. From what I see, all phone brands could not have zero defects in production anyway, so for those encountering issues with E8, bring it back for warranty claim - there's 1 year protection to your benefit, make full use of it. I remembered that's exactly what happened to my bluetooth headset H12, the first one was bad, used it for about a week, the other side couldn't hear me well, brought it back for warranty claim, got it replaced with a brand new unit - it has been perfect since then.
T-Man, 11 Jan 2009What I've heard as of 1/10/2009 from a T-Mobile representative, Motorola is now DISCONTINUING ... moreSeems like T-mobile has made a big mess out of Moto's phones like E8 to force Moto stop offering E8 in US.
E8 is still available where I live, and I have never heard the problems mentioned thru the Moto forums where I live.
I had E8 for about 5 months and never encountered the problems mentioned as well. Only reason I sold it was "personally" I couldn't get used to the keypad.
Now I'm practicing using the scroll wheel using my EM35.
oh. E8 shouldn't be discontinued unless motorola shows a better music phone (:
What I've heard as of 1/10/2009 from a T-Mobile representative, Motorola is now DISCONTINUING the ROKR E8 due to numerous glitches and malfunctions like deleting songs, shutting down unexpectedly, having slow interface, etc. Does anyone know if this is official? I've seen some sites that sell this phone say its been discontinued ( http://www.mobiles.co.uk/t-mobile-motorola-e8.html , http://www.expansys-usa.com/p.aspx?i=167971 )

jovi, 09 Jan 2009how do you get the music art work to show???In order for the music art to show, simply press up on the "D-pad" while your screen is on the music interface. It will only work as long as your music file has that little picture of the album art at the lower left side of the screen.
Regarding your other question(about the tones), I think it's pretty vague.
Been using this phone couple of months and i find it really slow. Whenever there is an incoming SMS, you cannot move anything, it seems it hang up and calls cannot even come in and will turn out to be missed calls, esp if i have so many incoming SMS. i was really disappointed. think twice before buying.
Is there option to set reminder tone :silen
or just vibrate and tone, on all profiles?
Is there filter of incoming calls or just throo the profiles, not for ex. on general throo contacts like V3 or K1????? Stupid!!!!!!!
Can somebody tel me, can I turn of the alerts sound and reminder sound complitly. On the silent or just on the silent profile.
Can I set ringer for one contact on silent like on the Moto V3 ank K1, or to use silent music...but if I can not done the reminder on silent like on K1 Z8 it is very bad becaouse there is no selection of income cols
fender, 05 Jan 2009how many times can i zoom the pics? anyway, thanx dude!You can zoom the pictures up to 200%. I don't know how big it is in pixels, but it's 200% of whatever size of the picture you're viewing.
is there any way to open and view excel files.PLEASE TELL ASAP want 2 buy this phone.
fender, 05 Jan 2009how many times can i zoom the pics? anyway, thanx dude!Up to 200% of the image's actual size I believe. It uses progressive zooming, unlike other phones which have predefined zoom like 2x and 4x.
i'm from the Philippines and i bought the phone just now... i'm happy with it, BUT:
I'm quite disappointed that there is no Copy-Paste function with editing text. Is there a new firmware that allows for this to be done?
I am quite surprised that the ability to Lock the Multimedia Application has been removed?? Again, have there been firmware updates allowing this to be done???
fender, 02 Jan 2009hi everyone.
does this phone can do photo zooming while in viewing mode?
for example, sony e... moreYes, you can zoom the pictures while viewing them. Simply press the "+" sign on the keypad while viewing them, and it's actually cool doing so.
*offtopic**So far my Moto Phone Tools still sucks. I'm still not sure if it's got something to do with my USB driver or the MPT itself. For more details re this, please refer to my post sometime December.
Texting is a breeze. The haptic feedback is very responsive. You'll find texting hard at first though.
according 2 consumer reports this phone is the best of the 70 phones that were tested
