Now for the bad...
My first phone was a Motorola. Swore off them but now bought this one. Should have stuck to it...
Motorola has no idea how to design an interface.
Badest point: The phone book does not support multiple phone numbers. There is an option to "Add number" but it actually creates a second, independant entry.
Message composing: The intelligent entry is horrible. Press the mode change button a few dozen times but you'll stay stuck in same mode. The option to switch to abc entry mode is hidden in a deep menu.
Pictures: Great pictures, I'll concede. But ugly UI. When you take a picture, the 1st menu option is to send it in message. Normally, one takes a bunch of pics, deletes a few and only sends a couple; so the first option should be to save.
There's no option to send pics or sounds via Bluetooth.
The headset uses a non-standard connector. Why?
The sync software was written by someone with no earthly idea of MAPI programming. Try this: Sync your phone, then switch to some other Window profile. That will royally mess up your Outlook.
Strong advice to Motorola: Look at Nokia for software & UI design, not your boardroom monkeys.
got this fone couple wks ago its nice, like the slimness, hate the camera. fone seems decent otherwise
(multiple phone numbers for contacts are stored separately)
thats another probelm, it is amazing how motorola overlooked this dumb feature...thats also why of the reason i avoided motorola and buys nokia
i luv the design and slimness, but there's 3 things that makes me not to buy the phone:
1....no note-taking capability...clearly unacceptable, especially if its the only phone u have
2...crude, imported menu and icons from older phones (compare to elegant design from SE and nokia/samsung)..the icons looks too big and drawn by some schoolboys
3...vga camera..again unacceptable in this price range
motorola is clearly trying to cut corners and shortchanging customers
Can anyone answer these questions about the SLVR L7:
1) How many text messages can be in the in-box until the message capacity is filled?
2) Is there anyway to display one name with the numbers (home, work, home2, fax, etc.) "inside" that name with one primary contact number present, or not at all, just the name?
3) Can I input actual physical addresses into the SLVR L7 along with email address and attach that to a name?
4) What is the capacity of the text messages that I can save?
5) Can I assign photos to every name in my book and not run out of photo space?
6) The 512MB card, that counts for my photos attached to phone numbers space? mp3 space?
Thank you in advance for any answers for these questions. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you again
i really like it cuz it can fit in my back pocket with ease!! it's a girl thing..
Hi there. My phone is a contract. I think this phone is the greatest phone and very good and clear camera. You should think about getting this phone because it is the best phone
Less negativity about the phone now - the interface is awful but the phone is nice! I thought the key lights were only supposed to come on in the dark? Is this only the L6 or is it a firmware thing?
I would like a digi clock screen saver for it (like my Sony Ericcson), and some strategy games rather than action. Can anyone help?
Also, does anyone know about developer software for it so I can write a new interface for it? Unlikely, but hopeful!
this phone is brilliant it has all the features you need, no problems at all and it looks stylish what more could anyone want
im planing 2 buy this phone... can any1 tel me how long cud the video last? is it in minutes? thanks...
Hey guys, just got this cool phone..but i gotta problem with setting the MP3 music files on my memory card as Ringtones...i have to copy them first into the phone memory..its about 5470KB free ...so i gotta problem in setting MP3s more than 5470 KB as ringtones....anybody can help please email me....if there is anyway in using music on mmc as a ringtone without having to copy them into phone memory...
i wanna buy this phone, what comes with the package? does this phone has headset jack? is this capable of video streaming?
Just received this today, looks lovely, sits in the hand well, etc. But what on Earth are Motorola doing with the interface? It is AWFUL, like a kid has made it!
You cannot seem to add words to the T9 dictionary, and multiple phone numbers for contacts are stored separately. Is there a software upgrade written by an adult available for this phone?
If not, it goes back today. No use for the real world!
To change the language is quite easy, you go to settings and look for language menu...
You can't have FM radio with the L7.
hey! I really realy looooove my L7 i just had it last week and i'm really enjoying it, transferring pictures and MP3s is very easy, just plug in the cable to ur USB host and then plug it to ur fone and it's just like using a USB flash drive, you just drag and drop or copy paste files and you're ready to go, by the way i read someone's post about the mp3 player, it's with the games and applications...and then i love this fone, it is scratch proof but the keypad is not but i don't care i really really love it, no regrets buying this fone! by the way the perfect fit dimension of a picture for this fone is 225 x 225..it's a perfect fit for a wallpaper.. i resized mine using my nokia pc suite.. ;)
I bought this phone in new york relying my SIM card. I live in europe and want to change the language into something else. how can I do it?
