Sorry that you got a buggy L7. It happened to me with my former samsung Z140. I charged the battery of my L7 saturday and it is still full ! No bugs, no crashes. Sound is just perfect, loud and clear. No pb with screen. I think you got a buggy one. Bring it back to the shop, it is your right. They will update the firmware...or something like that.
Regarding the keypad, it illuminates when it is dark. During the day it doen turn on. Great to save energy. I must say this time I was luky and I got a good mobile not expensive. I really recommended it....no like my SAMSUNG Z140 !!! GRRRRRR......
hi allan, thanks a lot for the valueable info regarding keypad backlight. I have tried it and you are very right, my man! thanks!
for "congular_rep" Thank you very much for your advices. I bought L7 in USA but it seems like it's from Europe because of the different type of Power supply. I am from SLOVAKIA so I live in EUROPE. I hope its gonna works somehow!!!.
Thanx for help I really appreciate it.
Just got this phone 4 days ago, and it already is giving me so much of troubles. During calls, it sometimes crashes, gives me white screen then restarts by itself. and it happens few times in a row. The sound quality is also horrible. I can hear the echo my voice most of the time during calls. This didn't happen when I used other phone. Phone's response is sluggish. People, do you think I got a "buggy" phone? And, I can't change ringtone when bluetooth handsfree is paired, is that right? Oh yeah and also, The signal strength is awful compared to my sony ericsson or samsung.
how can i make video long???please,please
i beg you!Z!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When i trying to put some file into my card from pc with adapter, it says "memory is protected" and i cant do notin...wat i should do to put files into my sd?
Ah, and to delete pictures from motorola, just delete them as any other picture. When you are on the picture, press menu and then delete. I already did it. The memory is so small that I had to delete some stupid pictures from motorola. There is also a trick, you can resize a picture to save memory. In the menu image viewer you press menu and then resize picture. It will decrease the size picture by a factore 10 maybe...
Thank you sashek ! I found it out yesterday night ! It was dark and the keyboard was illuminated ! Nice way to save energy.
Really a good phone.

ive had this phone for over a month, it looks really nice and i love the mp3 player. i have fun using this one as my mp3 player when i go to the gym. but there are problems with this phone. since im used to using nokia, its not really user friendly. also, it always hangs!!!! after a few phone calls, the screen would turn all white and its gonna say no signal, then i have to power it off and on again for it to work. so sad. the only thing i like about this phone is the looks and you can play mp3 songs plus the sound quality is better than nokia. other than that, id stick with nokia.

I got a 512MB memory mini sd card for my motorola slvr L7. The problem is that i can only do 30 second clips? around 800 single clips? Do you know how i make it into one big clip instead of loads of single clips.
hope you can help,
Now you say it...I see the blue light on the keypad only sometimes...Anyway...compared to my samsung Z140 which was a piece of ##!"$!X@YY/!!!, the Motorola L7 is really good !
just bought this thing..it look very expensive..very nice thing..but one question, why only screen lights?no lights at keyboard?only sometimes it lights for few sec and then down..
I just bought it on saturday. I was really mad about my samsung Z140 (I sold it to my girlfriend !) ! So I decided to try a motorola, the L7. Of course, its design is the first thing you see. It is really attractive, especially the silver model. Waouah...when you have it in hand. Thin, robust, elegant, it's metal, not plastic. OK, this is how it looks. What about functions and features ? First of all, the screen. Simply amazing ! Vivid colors, high resolution. The sound...waouh ! You feel like in a disco ! Very loud and clear. Hard to miss a call. The interface is good. It is not as illogical as the reviewer says. Ok, I find a bit illogical that there one icon for recording video and one for shooting pictures...but no big deal. The rest of the interface is normal. I am not really fan of cameras so I won't spend much time on it. It is a VGA and I think the pictures a pretty good. The quality is at least better than the ones made with my former samsung Z140. Anyway, I just use it to have pictures from the callers. Alarm and calendar are good. SMS writing is good but maybe a bit of delay when press a key. You must wait 1-2 s before you can press the same key. Otherwise I don't find the keypad confusing for writing SMS, there is no pb. What is a pitty is that it does come with a flash card. So you are left with 6 MB free memory, which is not much. Also, it does come with the USB cable. I think Motorola could have included these in the package. Otherwise, all the functions are good. A bit delay when viewing the pictures, but it's ok. For the moment I can't say anything about battery life, I loaded the battery saturday night and it is still full. I hope it will be what motorola promises...
In summary, it is really a good phone. It has all the main functions a "normal" user needs. The design is fantastic, the screen amazing and the sound very good. The price is ok, in vodafone I bought it for 177 euros and 500 points.
