i think cingular made a huge mistake making this phone as a itunes phone. really, the phones looks nice, but it has the same capacity, 100 songs... and not edge only gprs... seriouslly, C- for cingular
battery life is fine not had a problem with this phone dead easy to use!!
10 out of 10!!
this is the best phone i've had! its really smart got all the features i need
really tiny and dead easy to use!
Batt life to me on normal usage is about 2 days. As for putting into the MicroSD card in the phone, just mount the phone with the supplied USB cable and drag the MP3 songs in. My only complaint on the L7 is the iTap, which is not as good a the T9.
BATTERY LIFE (L7 with BC60)
I noticed a bunch of people asking questions about battery life. Personally I have not experienced very good battery life. I used mine for one full day after a complete charge, and left it turned on over night. When I woke in the morning it was down to one bar of battery. Basically this means i should have charged it over night. With my older phone, i would charge it once every 2-3 days with the same amount of use. Im hoping the battery life improves after a few uses.
for those L7 user...can tell me how long can it last after it has been charged?thanks...
can someone advice me how to get MP3 songs on to the phone. Also, how do I transfer data to and from the memory card.
to victoria yes this is the newest motorola phone. and much better than the razr i add. y pay 149.99 for a phone that has no video or mp3 when u can buy the slvr which has bth and more for da same price
how long can it last after charging this phone? hope to get reply soon...
Lol, and actually, I just noticed I didn't realise you said you don't like the idea of deleting off the sim, so my help isn't really helpful! (It's early in the morning here for me, sorry).
But hopefully it may be useful to someone...you never know. But why have them on the SIM anyways if you can sync via PC?
There must be a reason why yours isn't letting you snooze the alarm clock. I use mine everyday as an alarm clock and when the alarm comes up, one softkey says snooze and one says disable...so, you should be able to get a snooze feature. What branding is it, as maybe this is the difference (mine is unbranded).
And, as for the SIM card/phone phonebook entry problem, maybe this might be useful: if you go to your contact list and then press the middle top key you'll get the phonebook menu. Head to the bottom of that list and you'll see the option "copy." Select it and then select "entries." You will get a screen that gives "entries" (where you can select exactly which contact you want to work with and then "to" (where you can select whether you would like to add a copy to the phone or to the SIM card. Then it's just a matter of going back and deleting the original entry after you make the copy :) Again, this may or may not work depending on how the company you're using has decided to brand the phone...but I figured might as well share just in case! :)
I just got a L7, and damn it is sexy, But... There is always a "BUT"... When I send text messages it deletes the person i send it to from my phone book... sort of, the number is still there when i sync it with my computer, but does not appear in the phonebook on the phone. (If I try re adding the person/number it simply says duplicate entry and neither shows up.)
my software version is:R4513_G_08.B7.DBR_RB
Any one else have similar problems...
Excellent phone, faster than my previous nokia 6680. Only negative part is I constantly have to check in which pocket I left it. White color would be even cooler. Speaker is very loud.
Cool box!!! comes with everything!, Data cable, b'tooth headset and stereo headset.
Battery for L7 and L6 are CB-50 which due to slim-ness has got less standby and talk time, while Motorola new mobile C 261 has got much better battery CB-60 double time as campare to these two, Motorla should consisder this point. Another think is back cover and battery grip is not perfect in L7 and L6 while C261 a low end mobile has no such problem.
I have had this phone for a few days now and while I like the design of the phone, there are several things I don't like about it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Nice Screen (though
there are obviously better ones out there)
Cons: Low Volume on ear speaker and Speaker-phone (this is my main complaint) overall call quality is not as good as my old phone either
GUI design and features arent as good as Nokia or Sony Ericsson
battery life should be much longer (only lasts about 3 days, my 2 year old nokia can do the same)
A few things that may not be as important (but are to me), Alarm Clock does not have snooze, Calender not as useful as others, phonebook shows both sim contacts and phone contacts with no option to change this...this is important because to have voicedial or personalized ringers you must have the entry stored on your phone, which means deleting the entry from he sim, or having repeat entries in the phonebook (one on sim, one on phone).
Would I Buy this phone again? Probably Not mainly because of the volume of the calls, everything else is relatively minor.
im an average user (about 5-10mins talktime a day) how long would the battery last me ? i would prefer charging my phone once 2-3 days.... any feedback on this ?
