I agree .. Net 10 should provide ringtones and wallpapers! Besides that I love the phone ...
Sorry, don't mean to be rude.
How many people bother to read posts on this forum?
Buggered if I know. 0-((
Most of the questions have been answered if you care to look at other posts. ;-))
For manuals, go to your country's Moto site. You may also find ringtones for sale there too.;-)
Don't rely on any 'phone to download anything via GPRS, go to the maker's website if in doubt and do it by SMS, et al.
Seems a safe bet.
Take it easy, ;-)
Boring? Simplistic? Small screen?
Well frankly, yes.
Small in size? Effective and useable as a mobile 'phone? Hell, yes!
I ran this simple communication device on one charge for over 7 days without a recharge. (It still had a third of the battery meter showing).
If you want a fancy 'phone, pay the price for it and forget it.
If you need a simple, mobile telephone that works well for a long time on one battery charge.............
Buy a V171;-)
I also have a StarTAC 70,85 and 130, good 'phones in thier day and very stylish. Retro cool, so I'm told. ;-) Big wink!
The V171 continues that tradition and then some.
I don't need ring tones (though, they can be downloaded from :-
if you want them.
Moto say this 'phone will run for 12 days on standby, I don't know if it's tue but it does do a good job on that score compared with other small 'phones.
It's cheap too, I got mine on Tesco mobile with three favourite numbers that cost ten pence per minute for voice and five pence per text.
Go figure. ;-)
This phone is fine
but better buy the cheapest one since the service provider is NET10 and they do not support ringtones,wallpaperdl and screensavers.I called and they offered no apology
I bought this phone in england when i was visiting for a few months, but i have come back to america where i live. How do i change the network so i can still text England from using this phone in america, is this even possible? please help
Ya know, I've read a lot of comments about this phone, here's my opinion. I puchased this phone to be just that, a mobile phone that's realiable and basic. When I talk on the phone, I can't see the screen, so who cares? I can see what I have to to program it and see who's calling. And as long as it makes noise to let me know someone's calling, who cares what noise it makes? As far as games, I have gameboys; for music, I have stereos and an iPod, for video, I have computers, vhs and dvd players, cameras digital, film and vhs and yes....television!THIS IS A GREAT, LOW COST UNIT and it does WHAT A PHONE IS SUPPOSED TO DO and it DOES IT WELL. As far as Net10 goes, hey spend yourself silly and get all the bangs and whistles, it's a free country. Net10 does exactly for me what I need it to do.
yea yea yea i bought this phone just the other day and i barely get service where i live tiny screen but its a phone call ppl or text them and thats fine
where can you get ringtones
The phone is great....net 10 is a good service but says on the box that you can download ringtones....YOU CANT... I called them and they thought I was crazy...I did though get 20 more units out of them though...good phone....screen small...but for a kid great.....enjoy your phone
DONT by this phone it belongs in the junkyard not the shops the screen is crap and everything rubbish
This is the worst phone. Since I bought it everything imaginable has gone wrong with it. I regret wasting my money on buying it and getting it unlocked from Telstra..DONT BUY THIS PHONE!!!
*I wanna buy this fone. Looks fantastic (except for that annoying tiny screen). *Everything else is great. Can you pls email me and tell me wat games it has?
*I found this fone for $99 AUS
*I found ringtones at http://www.mymoto.com.au/mymoto/index.wl?page=choosecontent&handsetID=188&typeID=45
hello i'm from kazahtan
in our country motorola comes with this phone for as , the phone was very cheap and soo a lots of people buyed this phone ,
I HATE THIS PHONE I'M POOR ,AND THE PHONE IS BROKE NOW ,i hate moto , i love my siemens cf 62
is soo funny that motorola build this phone
has a nice price but this phone is the most ugly phone and the battery holds just 2 days , the screen is very fake colors
the of the phone is build from a polimer and a drop few time and the polimer just broke
soo , my advise DO NOT buy this phone !!!!
This phone is amazing! I have had and tested many phones but this phones battery keeps going mine lasts for a week. The rigntones are clear and the wap works well. The design is classic and complements any outsfit you wear.
To Download Ringtones go to My Moto, select V171 and click on Polyfonics
not too impressed. its nice and all but the screen is WAY too small! i have to squint!
hey just wondering wether it's a good fone or not....thanx
this phone is rubbish nothing more to say
I like this fone. It is stylish, practical and value for money. I can't understand why no one can download tones. The first thing I did was down load one for the ringtone and one for the messages, as I didn't like the built in ones. They were ninety cents each.
