Of course I still remembers you and yes it's been a while. I'm from Malaysia and the ROKR E8's price here is about USD 270. (could be lower but unfortunately due to the rising of US dollars recently.) How's your V8 by the way? My previous V8 was still in really good condition till the day I sold it off - totally no problem at all. My current E8 is still working very well as compared to some guys here and I enjoy using it so far.
Thought of changing phone again Gerard? You're one of the lucky few that I knew that can afford all these at 12 years of age.
I've been using this phone for a year now i think its great not too bulky and all. sound wise to me is not too bad but it can be overwelming sometimes. But its the best phone I have used so far. Better than se n nokia mid range phone which I have used. Highly recommended but this phone lacks themes n wallpaper etc. and i am tired of the current themes.....would be nice if theres more themes.
Its been a long time.....

Do you still remember me?
Im the little 12 year old boy
who owns a V8...
Good to see that no one's been annoying lately.. :) BTW, maybe you guys can help. Out of curiosity, I tried to use the Moto Phone Tools (the one that came with my E8 in the box) and it says that my phone is not supported, and I clicked on the update button, and it says that my MPT is already updated. How do I take care of this issue? Can it be a USB driver issue?
One more thing. I wanted to update my E8's firmware, however there are none yet available here in the Philippines. There are no updates on the website neither. Hopefully there will be one soon.
I love my E8!
A friend of mine has this phone and has a problem transfering photos from the mobile to the computer.The computer doesnt "see" the photos inside the files in which the photos are saved.It says the file is empty and it doesnt use any space either.i clicked on properties and it says 0mb.How can i make the computer see the photos?

kilt, 17 Dec 2008i have a problem, so maybe somebody could help me?
when choose the "music" option, a pop-up... moreso i switched sim cards on my moto, and all of a sudden the player started shuffling songs and read them from the media library. By the way, the songs were located on the phone's memory. An before that i flashed my moto to the unlocked UK version and it work so much better and faster, although i previously had the dutch firmware, which lagged big time. Anyway, i have no idea what exactly happened, but i'm very happy.
Still there's one issue: the battery life, all of a sudden it lasts only for a day, and i don't listen to music and i set the brightness level to 2, and i don't use the screensaver, and i keep my moto in locked mode all the time, not to mention that i don't use bluetooth, video or camera facilities at all. any advice?

Same hardware, same codecs and same music player (MotoMagx). However, I dont know whether the bundled headphones differ in EM30 and E8.
EM30 cuts cost mainly on internal memory, front panel and FastScroll wheel. IMHO EM30 lacks the X-factor of E8, though its personal preference. I'd suggest you to check out the silver EM30, you might like it better than the red one.
In terms of music quality, EM30 is just another E8 in a new skin. Cheers :-)
Mr coresolo what is difference between Em30 and E8 in terms of Music quality? Both looks similar configuration but EM30 is cheaper than E8. so tell me how EM30 differs from E8 in terms of Music quality.

A... moreThanks coreSolo & jjsoviet.
Just share whatever I've experienced. I always remember the WOW factor on first time experience, like when I first tested E8, the morphing keypad, haptics, sound quality and the total blackout when it's on standby - you don't see any other phones that's completely black with flat surface. Those who have not tried the E8 before will be like "what should I do", "where do I start" and "where should I press because there's no button" - you know the hidden thrill factor for the first couple of seconds. So I always keep my phone locked so that my friends can touch anywhere on the front panel, it'll still won't be activated and to keep them guessing. My friends didn't think Motorola is capable of coming out with something like this. I like to tell them, look friends, see outside the box, don't always see what others are looking at only.

Also to get maximum possible audio quality, I use 320 VBR MP3 or 192 VBR AAC. Although audio formats and bitrates are a topic of discussion on their own, keeping them high satisfies my EGO ;-)
128 CBR is just not me.

It has ultra-clear sound; I can hear and identify all of the instruments used in a song!

I just wanna add a little of my personal experience with regards to earphone for E8. I found the original (bundled) earphone of E8 selling for approx. USD 25 in my country is nothing to shout about, normal quality but definitely better than some other cheap unbranded ones. I've tried worst ones in the process of searching for a better earphone unit for my E8. I saw a Bose (forgotten to note its model number) unit retailing at USD 90 and was allowed to test it out - the result, worst than the original E8 earphone. Can't believe the quality for that price. Wanted to test the Shure E2C model but the packaging will be spoilt once opened, or maybe that's the excuse the sales rep gave me in order to avoid testing. Also tested Sony's Ex90 retailing at USD 94, quality's surprisingly good, base above average, really clear and sounded not tinny. I ended up purchasing the Sony Ex088, much lower range at about USD 18, clarity very close to EX90, base lose out a little to EX90 so I guess it's value for money for this combinations. Beats out the original E8's earphone as the EX 088 comes with noise cancelling design earbuds, cancelled out maybe 70% (rough guess) of outside noise when fully inserted into our ear canal. (my opinion) So before buying any earphones out there, if you are allow to, do try out the sound quality yourself, price indications can be misleading sometimes and does not represent quality. I believe our personal budget too play a role as if you can spare more money for a pair of earphone, generally you can aim at higher range units. As for me, since my budget for an earphone is around USD 50 or below, my preference to sound quality are midrange and treble clarity (not those sharp pitchy sound though) with bass preference the last, I opted for Sony but that's my personal preference. If you are a bass guy, you need to try out more units to find the ones suitable to your taste. If you read reviews from different websites, you'll find many good quality brands but their prices too are really high. So again test them out before buying, that's the safest way to spend your money.
