Once youve done that, connect your phone and chose v1050 option on the mobile tools program. A graphic of your open phone should apear at the bottom right corner of your monitor. Give it a few seconds to configure, then select the media option on the right (looks a bit like a bell). From there, select mobile explorer. Then chose either mobile or memory card to view what files you have stored. select then click the transfer to pc icon.
Failing that, you can remove your memory card and using the adapter provided, slot it into a card reader.
Every line of phone models have units that are problem prone. The dude underneath me has unfortunatly got one. My unit has now been used daily for 3 years with no problems and still holds a weeks charge on the original battery. ! thing i discovered by accident; when choosing the reply option in text msg's, I ticked the person's name I was replying to on the contact list. It sends the text twice and charges you for it.
This phone is great at first, but becomes EXTREMELY problematic. DO NOT BUY IT! I have had countless problems with it, had it replaced once, needs to be replaced again. fails to charge thanks to the stupid charger port, often freezes, takes a painfully long time to start up. WARNING TO ALL POTENTIAL USERS: DO NOT BUY IT!!!

If your able to, try your card in another phone to see if the files open. If not, you may have to reformat your card and start from scratch. I advise backing up the photos, ringtones etc before you format it.

Ive used a one gig "sandisk transflash micro md" card for the past 16 months in this phone, and ive had no problems with it. Only difference ive noticed is mp3's stored on the phones memory is a fraction louder through the speaker than those stored on the memory card.

Kylie, 09 Mar 2006Can anyone tell me if the phone will support a 1GB transflash card? it does say "up to 256mb" ... moreNo, on the IGB card. Installed one that the phone recognized, but it crashed on the next start up. 512 seems to be the max.

I find it incredible that Motorola left off the 850 mgh band that is superior to the 1900 here in the U.S. I have ATT that covers most of the country with 1900 towers, but you will not do as well inside buildings without 850. However, you can buy it now at a deep discount that makes up for the lack of an 850 band.Just be careful that your carrier has 1900 coverage.
great phone at first but this thing came up it says unregistered sim and i get no singal i can use gprs only on the cell c network i am from south africa got the phone from vodacom any way every thing else is great and works i heard your'll say you can use a 1gig memory card or 2gig will try thet i got a 512mb one
Ive had this phone for two and a half years. Ive had no problems with this phone. Paint has started to peel on a couple of the keys, but I text alot, so that is expected after the length of time ive used this phone. Ignore some of the comments below. The battery life is good. I only charge my phone once a week and it takes 4 days to drop to 2 bars. The internal screen is easily viewable in direct sunlight, no matter what angle you hold it at. Its better than most upto date phones. The large font is easy to read and now i can't go back to a small screen phone because it makes them look so ridicules. 1 gig memory card has worked with no problems. This is not a music phone and was never marketed as one. Plays mp3s ok with the single speaker. Average ring tone volume.
3G CAN be turned off. You have to go into settings, choose network option and change the frequency. I had to do this because I had this phone unlocked and T-mobile doesnt offer a 3G service. Signal becomes non existent if you put a non 3g network sim card in this phone. Signal strengh depends on your network. T-mobile is poor inside large shops, but Orange gets full strength no matter whereabouts you are (in the U.K).
Camera is ok in daylight but very poor in night time situations.
Photos DO fill the whole screen when you use them as wallpaper.
Mine came with a data cable in the box. I got used to not having bluetooth and proves I dont really need that function. Maximum video capture length is 3 minutes. The wide screen option is good for video playback.
For a 3 year old model which can be bought brand new at a budget price, this is a good reliable entry level phone.
While the GUI may not be the most eye pleasing to some people, its easy to use and navigate.
The ONLY time I have had a blank screen is when ive had it open for too long and the battery save option kicks in.
I still use mine daily as I havn't decided which phone to upgrade to yet. I will keep this phone as an emergency back-up once I get a new model. Its never let me down.
I've got that phone 2 years and i don't like it because it doesn't have bluetooth! :)
I LOVE THIS PHONE....the camera is really good quality. I didn't care for the bluetooth beacuse I never use one!
