"Can't decide betwen this phone, RAZR V3x, Sony Ericsson 750i, and soon to be available BenQ-Siemens S88. It seems to me biggest shortcoming of SLVR is not having a 3G capability and a crappy camera. I also think SLVR is just a marketing ploy and is really the same phone as original RAZR. Any thoughts? What about other 2 phones I've mentioned? From tech specs of BenQ-Siemens S88, it seems that it will be superior to others mentioned. Any ideas? What would you guys go with?"
All depends on your priority. I need pocket space so SLVR or RAZR fits me well. I dun feel "stuck" in the pocket when I sit down. left pocket SLVR right pocket iPod.
Too bad Razr V3i is not black, so I get SLVR.
Here it is guys. I know many of you have been waiting for it. I have finally found it. Cingular Branded L7 Firmware with Itunes!
This only works if your bootloader is 0A.20. so check your phones before you do anything! don't want to brick your phone. to check turn off your phone, and then hold * + # and power.
don't know why it only works on that bootloader for now but motorola made 2 different bootloaders. One is 0A.20 that works with Cingular software, and another bootloader (i forget the name) that works with others. don't know why, don't ask me lol.
Language Pack: 0003
Bootloader : 0A.20

has any1 had ghosts on their fone, wot i mean like does ur fone keypad light sumtimes turns off for no reason and u go 2 type and still doesnt come on, then all of asudden it works 4 sum reason. (listenin 2 the x files theme). plz help meee
Look. You guys are going to ahve to let go of the old V3 once and for all. I had that phone for 9 months and it drove me crazy. it was like having a beautiful girlfriend and with doo for brains.
1. The address book only allowed one character input when searching for contacts. I have 600 numbers in my phone and this drove me crazy. Who was the retard @ Motorola that let that go for so long. This problem is corrected now.
2. The Razr is real slow compred to the SLVR.
3. iTunes (duh). The Razr (for now) doesn't support iTunes MP3 playback.
4. The Razr is smaller only when in the folded position. Since most actions are done why it is open, it is safe to say the SLVR is smaller. It is definitely thinner all the time.
5. To many people have the Razr now. When I start seeing people, who admired my Razr 8 months ago, acquiring it in droves, it's time to change. Even Sprint has that nasty little Razr knock-off now.
Please. I'll move on thanx. SLVR is a good phone so far (1 week) folks.
to the person about the fone covers...i have not known about any interchangable covers as this phone only comes in black, and is un-detachable from the rest of the machinery. So i'm pretty certain there is no way of changing the case, or would there be optional cases u can change into. Hope that helps!
I got this phone ($199USD) and like it alot. Just a quick bit of info for people who didn't go to "any" website to research these this phone. I personally feel places like this should be for more advanced Q&A's. I mean, thats why God gave us Google folks.
1.SLVR from Cingular has 512 card
2. iTunes only holds 100 songs no matter what card is in there (until some nice hack comes along)
3. There is a small adapter that goes from the mini-USB to headphone jack (so tired of hearing this phone doesn't have one)
I do not understand one thing! How do you listen to mp3s, does the package include a stereo headset ? And one more thnig, can it open .txt files ? Somebody answer to me please.
Does the SLVR only come with the 11 MB of memory or does it come with the 512 MB card as well. I was reading some posts and I read someones who got a 512 MB card with his phone. Mine is being delivered so I don't know what I'm getting. Please help
Question about phone's memory. I was thinking about buying the 512 MB memory card. If I buy this will I be able to have more than 100 songs? how much will the 11 MB's hold?
Words cannot describe this phone, it is so very good and i would recommend it to anyone !!
Howdy, to those who owned this L7 hp, i would like to know if we can use mp3 for both ringtone n in-coming sms alert?
I just got this phone the other day and find it very good A couple of caveats although:
I can not seem to find wher the auto jkeylock is, I don't want to be pocket dialing people unexpectedly.
It is branded with vodafone live and the left softkey is a vodafone live button... Is there a way to remove this? mI believe that this is removing some of the standard features.
L7 has come out with black colour initially and sliver for vadafone, sooner it will be released in several more colour, as regard no problem has been noticed with its blue tooth, the memory card can store mp3 songs/files as 128MB card is being produced with this set, the LCD has been manufactured by Sharp while LCD in razar V3 was made by thoshiba that is why this hand set has better resolation and colour
How do you use the PTT function on this phone??? can it be done in the US?
wit this fone, im lookin 2 get it and i think i will but, im not to sure wit the fones blutooth, like in the d500 how u can explore other ppls fone wit the blutooth can the L7 do the same or does it just show wot it connects 2, plz help
can the mp3 song stored into memory card? i heard that mp3 cannot stored into memory card, is it true? reply me thanz.
does this phone come in pink or at least a shell to change it inot some other color...a lady would like to know. thx.
choose a mp3 track go to option you will find one option set as, open this and set as ring-tone. Now this track will ring as a ring tone even a full lenght song.
