1)Never heard of any E8 (or most other Moto phones except Z8) has such problem.
2)If such problem really occurs, the service center would simply change the motherboard. (that means other than the outter housing, the phone is new!)
See if you can ask your local service rep to change the motherboard...as electronics nowadays can't exactly be "repaired".
I bought this phone 'cause I wanted an good music phone, and I liked this phone on a first sight. I had 2 phones but i wanted this one. I was, and still am, very satisfied with the mp3 part of it. But i'm so disappointed with the phone part... Recently i had some problems with network, i'm allways unavailable- In an autorised store they check it and it stilll losing signal. The batery is very bad. Don't know what to do. It's the second Motorola pone that I bought with the same problem. Any suggestion? Do I need to buy a knew battery? maybe with the knew one the signal will be better...
Who owns an N81 phone and uses all its application at the same time just like what the fanboy is doing to his? Anyone?
Sound quality is top notch with this set. E8 has generated some of the best RMAA results and in real world too, the owners say it themselves :)
i have read almost all reviews and what I can say is that this phone is awesome.I own this phone for 3 months and I'm very happy with it.First of all it looks great.Second of all it is proved that is one of the best music phones ever made.With its 500 mhz processor could beat even n95(369-400 mhz)but it has only 1 mb ram.And finally i eant to say that it worths every dollar

I'll stand the truth.I won't tell lies. I've proved that Moto is the best cellphone brand. All of my friends who sell cellphones also said that Moto is the best durable cellphone in the world.

I'm a cellphone seller.I hope my comments will clarify all the war about Moto vs Nokia.
Moto has a good design and its build quality is just perfect.Moto is the less brand that I've ver taken it to be repaired at service center.Nokia and Sonny Ericsson is the most brand to be repaired.Sony Ericsson has a weak built quality.Cracking keypad and restart issues are the most common problem on most SE phones.
Nokia has also the restart issues,unable to charge,signal issues,software issues,etc.
Motorola is the only brand which is almost perfect.Only a few minor software issues I have.
I think mr.N81 here is only proud of his N81 advantages.He didn't wanna tell you guys how weak is the N81.
I'eve ever sold N81 and I can tell you that it's made of cheap plastic,the sliding is also weak and sometimes it restarted. Installing java games is a pain.It took so much time to install games.I can do it quick on E8.
Moto is always be the best since I sold E398.

And you still haven't answered my question: why the almighty brand took 4 years to come out with a 3G touch screen device after Moto?
N81 peeps! will you plz go to your section and blabber right there? Im getting tired of you guys barking up the wrong tree! duh! NEXT!

I answered your A1000 questions in A1000 thread.
Keep it up !
Just got home from a wedding and I realized that I missed all the party again!
Still the good ol' E8 vs. N81 thing is getting too ridiculous these days. It seems that someone is forcing everyone here to submit to the "awesome" powers of the N81 and worship it as a god. Well, we ain't gonna convert to N81-ism; we must stand strong and move on.
Because world crisis so Nokia Fanboy getting stress. He / she doesn't have knowledge to compare mobile phone with different class. That's why he / she compare between Motorola E8 and Nokia N81. Only smart people know which one music phone, which one smartphone, which one multimedia phone and only smart people will compare with same class (music phone with music phone and similiar price). He / she never give fact advance / expert comparison between Motorola Rokr E8 and Nokia N81. Hahaha... Shame on you.
I've been away too long, but looks like the same issue about Nokia is still wandering. However, I was still reading during my "absence" and have been re-evaluating the situation. Now I believe, besides the ego issue (arguing on points, features & so on here), the whole thing appears like someone is using a "suppresion" approach on E8 - they picked on E8 becoz they probably believe this is one of the best current model from Motorola with CES 2008 award that could threaten other brands. So if you read thru the comments from many back pages here, initially there were too many positive comments that supported E8's good design & features. When others came here, they'll find good positive reviews BUT now, they'll find arguments which will take away spaces/pages and saturate the good comments to appear less in a page. So guess who will benefit from this? Competitors? This is what I mean by suppression - neutralizing or saturating all the good comments so that they will not accumulate all in one page resulting in E8's image becoming less strong as before, just like politicians got publicized on their wrong personal affairs by some oppositions that have happened so many times - definitely tarnishes their image.
So the best way to deal with this is to - TOTALLY IGNORE whatever comments from the person concern - no matter what he kind of comments he's coming out with. Once we "reply" to his comment, we fall into his trap. We need to prepare ourselves that his comments will be more sarcastic as time goes by to attract replies so please refrain from replying. Please don't look at what he's writing in his individual comments, instead, look at the bigger picture, what is he trying to achieve with all his comments thru our tug-of-war with him. Now, does this make sense to us all based on what's happening?

So NO they are not better than NOKIA. By the way NOKIA got 3G same time as MOTO so dont talk crap.
I'm surprised to see the mobile war going on here since I last left a post (Nov. 4, 2008) and it looks like that a lot of people are blinded as to why you should buy this phone or not.
I say that this phone is very good in terms of sound quality since I am a recording engineer and I must say that it bypasses most if not all the music phones, and that is the sole reason why I am very into this phone, and it's just quite annoying that people are trying to compare this phone to phones that are not of the same caliber like comparing it to smart/multimedia phones, which this phone is not because this is a MUSIC phone with added features. One more thing, this phone has a very tough surface that I've been placing it over rocks, and not a single scratch can be found.
Remember, this is a music phone, and it does its job excellently... If you are not a music person, then you may look for other phones to get, but if you're into music (metal in particular) this phone is the best..
What Nokia too late technology than Motorola.
Motorola begin produce Motorola Touch Screen since around 4 years ago before Nokia.
Motorola begin produce Motorola 3G since around 4 years ago before Nokia.
Motorola begin produce Motorola Music Phone since around 4 years ago before Nokia.
Much more fact Nokia too late to release.
Cain, 07 Dec 2008First of all, you should learn to listen to people a bit better :) I did not compare A1000 to ... moreThanks for sharing your experience with your A1000.
Sorry for getting out of the topic. As I have emphasized many times through other articles, I can't understand how it took the almighty company, with at least 4 times the sales and R&D resources, took more than 4 years to come out with its first touch screen 3G device, when Moto did it with its A1000 over 4 years ago.
May I ask you something about your A1000. Do you have any problem charging your A1000?
Actually I still have mine in a semi-retired status. I still love the large mon and its touch screen ability. Really great for viewing pictures.
The only reason my A1000 is in semi-retired status (meaning the phone still works...just that it's sitting in my closet!) is because I can't charge my A1000 about 20% of the time...thanks to the "old" Moto charger plug design!
If somebody can help convert the charger plug of my A1000 into mini-USB, I would wouldn't mind to pay US$100! (that's how much I love my A1000)
Cain, 07 Dec 2008First of all, you should learn to listen to people a bit better :) I did not compare A1000 to ... moreAwesome post by Cain. There are different users and different preferences, only thats why there are so many different models and different segment of cell phones. I realized that at forums, the job of senior members is to lay out a clear picture rather than getting involved in silly fights. Also, feel passionate about your set, but not possessive and defensive.
Lets share our experiences and create directions for others, not misdirections :)
