For those complaining about no flash on the camera - here's some advice: go buy yourself a camera - the L9 is designed to be primarily a phone device and not a phone attached to a camera... The L9 has the same form factor as the L7, capable of reading up to 4GB transflash memory, excellent reception, very good battery life, better speaker for music than its predecessors and much better sound for calls - there is no earpiece buzzing or interference at all! Fully compatible with various bluetooth ear devices. The keypad has a very good tactile feel and excellent illumination. Although the software is Moto UI, it doesn't have the problems of Symbian-driven phones (like the Z8 which degrade over time causing software hangups and crashes) and will be very customizable in the future. Airplane mode works like a charm and is a big benefit that allows a user to turn off all GSM-related circuitry in sensitive environments. The FM radio is not bad, but the reception is rather sickly (keep in mind, this isn't a walkman - it's a cell phone). Signal reception is beyond reproach - perhaps the best of all Motorolas. Battery life is also excellent, much better than the L7 - with occasional radio and mp3 playing, 1/2-1hr phone conversations - the batter will last over 4 days stand-by before requiring recharge. Screen (1.9in, 262K color) is well-lit, but is washed out in direct bright sunlight (this is because the screen is only transmissive and not transflective - perhaps one major fault of Motorola design and engineering - although transflective screens do use up more power). Overall score of phone 8.5/10 (positives: reception, call, build and sound quality, battery life, form factor and easy to type SMS with one hand... Negatives: slightly below avg FM reception - most noticeable outside major urban areas - inside city this is negligible, screen barely readable in bright direct sun (because Moto chooses to make ONLY transmissive screens - all Motos suffer from bright sunlight screen washout). Overall an excellent (proven) phone perfect for use as business phone, excursion phone, or if you want a small, solid and very capable phone in terms of reception and call quality. Do not buy if you're looking for the "cool" factor - get yourself an overpriced, crash/freeze prone Symbian-drive phone for that.

hi can any one tell dat can we select songs on memory card as ringtones or we need to copy them on phone memory to be set as ringtone.....
plz suggest.....thnxx n regards
i am confused, the review says the screen size is 2" while the specs says 1.9"? which is correct?
can u plz tell me, can i play mp3 and FM in back ground? i mean, for example, while listening to mp3 or FM can i also play game and type sms?
and, again...i m very confused..which phone should i buy? motorola l9 or sonyEriccssion K750? those who r using Moto L9, plz help me to decide....
while u r having a call, just press the round 9joy stick kinnda thing's) left side, it will get silent.
i learnt it suddenly while using my L6....i think, very few ppl know about this option...
i am a great fan on moto fons but comparing this to the l7 i believe there are no differences cept for the internal memory size and radio. a total waste of time. moto u can do better.
just push any of the volume buttons while its ringing to turn off the ringtone when someone is calling you.
please tell me how to put the phone in silent when someone is calling : for example, if someone is calling me and I don't want to answer him how can I turn off the ringing tone like in nokia and sonyerricson?
what about the signal strength... i am using moto L7 now but compared to nokia the tower or signal strength is less.. HOw about L9 plz do comment...
