Can anyone please tell me whether this phone is still available in India, Especially in Bangalore ( I live there)? If available, Please let me know where i can get this......
Thanks in advance,
Well, it is a very well built phones (quality build) but the software support is disappointed. First of all: the lag (it is slow even with modded firmware, in my case zMod 2.4.5). Second and very important for me: the battery life. It is not good. I can talk continuously only 2 h o(with battery fully recharged). Also I can listen only 8h of music playback with the wired headset. And the third problem: yes, the speaker whispers to you. It's quality is good but the volume is too quiet. The fourth and the last: it cannot ring & vibrate at the same time (EM30 can do that).
a very good phone, for music in specially, long lasting battery 3-4 days with music listening. good display, the keypad is briliant. camera is preety good, nice "alive" colors, no autofocus but the phone is not for pictures. nothing to complain unless the lag that sometimes appear. i regret i sold it. one of the best music phones in the world.
dis is stupid gopi's phone which he is using for last 2 yrs.but d phone is so slow n buttons r so hard like him.n d cel is also very fat like gopi.camera is hopeless :( like him only in time to perform its not performing
Stuart, 17 Jul 2010Yes friend, I wanted to look for a phone to replace my E8 but I've been unsuccessful so far, m... moreI agree, it's really hard to a find a replacement for moto e8. I've been using it for more than 2 years now...
this phone rocks. im not a camera lover so i dont mind if the camera sucks. If you want a good camera, find a phone dedicated for camera. This phone with a stock firmware is truly slow. But when u modd it with a modded firmware, it unleashes its potential.
How does it behave as a edge moddem?How is the messenging?Is it comfortable?
how cd i get my pics loaded onto the pc.. i dont hav a memry card as yet .. helpp

Nir, 23 Jul 2010Thanx alot.but Where can i download motorola phone tools for free or cracked version?Hi there,
Not sure where you can download the Motorola Phone Tool software. In my earlier comment, I did mention that I bought another unit of brand new E8 and the MPT CD is inside the red box that contains the manuals. There are 2 CDs inside, the MPT and the Windows player for music transfer software. If you purchase the E8 that comes with the box, the CDs should be inside, but if yours comes with "open box" like some websites are selling, then it's unfortunate for you. Free MPT software, I'm not sure where but you can try to google it.

Design is great and making itself notable among other phones.
Usability is bad linked with bad performance and slow response on actions made with phone.
Even typing sms message the typing is painful since there is big delay with button reaction.
Price is decent if looking for music player (has 2gb memory and memory card slot).
But for other using like calling, texting or using calendar and mms this device is useless and I do not recommend it for anyone.
Nym, 20 Jul 2010Can someone tell me how to use internet in pc using this set?
I didnt get any pc suit type so... moreHello E8 fan,
You need a software called "Motorola Phone Tool". I found out that if your PC is on XP or XP2, it's easy to proceed on its connection and setting. I'm using Windows 7 now and I've found that I couldn't find the E8 phone while searching on the right modem when I try to configure. Since I've experience with V8 and both phones are running on Linux OS, I chose the V8 during configuration and now it worked perfectly. Do note that your data connection charges will apply and you'll be on EDGE speed which is still acceptable. I do not know whether it's my notebook problem or it's the compatibility problem with Windows 7, installing Motorola Phone Tool (MPT) version 5 gave me more problems so in the end I decided to go back with MPT version 4.2. Do not update to version 4.7 even though the free update is provided. This problem was exactly what I've encountered earlier so go with v4.2 and choose V8.
I'll try to help as much as possible but I'm not a "high-tech" guy so if you encounter any issues, we'll share info here.
Glad that you pointed out an option for me, the SE Elm. I've got no idea at all about this phone and did a review checking on some websites and one particular website - phone arena dot con's review mentioned as follow:
........"The handset comes with Noise Shield, an option that should filter the environmental sounds around you, but frankly, people on the other end didn’t find any difference. On the other hand, “Clear Voice” that is supposed to make the voice of your caller more distinctive and intelligible does exactly the opposite. All told, the device delivers good in-call quality."
I don't think it's SE's fault as Motorola's initial Crystaltalk version was not prefect too. However, having used the V8, V9 Ferrari and E8, I feel Crystaltalk should outperform SE's Noise Shield. Given time, perhaps when refinement develop further, I believe it'll be better.
Another feedback from a friend of mine who just purchased the Motorola bluetooth headset H17 paired to his iPhone 3GS, the result was fantastic, crystal clear, good volume and background noise cancellation was great. I called him when he was at a renovation site with ground breaking machine working nearby - I could hear him really loud and clear without knowing he's at a noisy environment and only once that I heard a faint buzzing sound. He was telling me that "it's really noisy here". I could detect improvements on this current version of Crystaltalk as he was using the Motorola H780 before this and both has Crystaltalk built in. H17 defintely outperformed the H780 in this department.
Talking about buying another phone, today I just purchased another E8, brand new. (at one third of the price I paid for mine, LOL) It was a "left over" new phone unit from a neighborhood country and Motorola there decided to clear off all "old models" from their inventory. ZN5 was also available but all units were snapped up pretty fast as they were really cheap. So I guess I have to wait again for the competitions to come up with a good and reliable back ground noise reduction technology before deciding.
E8 FAN, 19 Jul 2010can somebody post were can i download the software update for my ROKR E8,Hi there,
I've been looking for updates for my E8 for a long time, even searched Motorola's different countries' website where some have updates for E8. I've downloaded couple of times and found out that almost all are for Vista purpose, nothing great for E8's system. Worst still, my E8 seems to not able to perform so well after that. I ended up did a master reset (prior to that I performed a backup via Motorola Phone Tool) and it has been superb ever since. From my experience on E8, don't update if possible unless your updates are from the official Motorola Service Centre.
