WARNING! DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!
Your Motorola phone is defective. The screen will go dead within the first 1 - 6 months, and you will be stuck with it.
Motorola phones with display are absolutely garbage, and the record speaks for itself. Check it out on Google. Search for "Motorola screen problems" and you will be overwhelmed with hits.
My own V220 expired in 22 days. The manufacturer has a 30 day warranty. But guess what? You didn't read the fine print. 'OR 30 MINUTES'. That's right. If you use your phone for more than 30 minutes, you are going to own this dead phone.
So if you turned this piece of garbage and tested it for more than 30 minutes, this same defective product will not be replaced.
NEVER BUY MOTOROLA! NEVER!

Your Very Welcome!
Thanks but I'm not really a genius just been Researching through many different forums with frustration of coarse until I've found a site that worked and just redirected the info here : )
I'm Glad to have helped..
I know what you mean with the short ring time However I don't think it's any model phone Specific that causes this,
It's the Carrier that sets this that When someone calls that the Voicemail picks up automatically after a certain amount of time.
I know there isn't any way to set this within the phone or any phone.
You may try to call your Customer Service and see if they can modify your ring time?
It's worth a try,
Has anyone found the time of ringing to be ridiculously short on the V220? It rings for about 11-12 seconds and then hangs up. That is often not enough time to pick it up. Does anyone know of a way to make it ring longer?
Yes! Thanks DEN, I have just seen my phone files on the PC. With a USB cable from an other camera, the spanish site (http://motorolac.wz.cz/?str=download) you send me to, and the file P2K_driver_2.3 that I used to direct the installation program to all the drivers I needed in that file.
I can say after 10 days searching... now it works... you are genious :)
You can e-mail me, thanks again :)
WoW... Den, I will go and see that spanish site for the program PK2MAN. Been looking for a while and did not find anithing yet. I'll be back telling you if it works :)
I've had this Phone for a few weeks and been hearing various complaints about the Software for the USB connection and USB Cover doesn't stay in well Etc
THE USB Rubber Plug doesn't just push in with your thumb that easily but if you Push it in Firmly with your thumb nail in the center it will Securely push in and Seal it well and it hasn't come loose at all and seals out dirt very well considering it's not being used but once in a while to upload pics ETC But you just have to try to understand the right way to do it and it's fine..
It is very light and Very Small with So far great battery life and reception.
I've also been reading on software for the USB.
I have used a standard Digital camera USB cable that comes with many types of digital cameras you would have to check the plug to see if it fits the plug on the phone otherwise have to buy on E-bay ETC..
I have found that the Motorola Phone tools not available except for a crazy price not worth it for a driver but the "P2Kman" software Did the trick and is free just you have to mess with it to figure it out and took me a few tries but I was able to Upload my PICS and load Ringtones no problem but not many Other features but does the job.
I have downloaded it from some Spanish site you just download PK2MAN here:
The ringtone sound quality so far is very impressive by far to many phones i have tried,
It seems to have a type of Bass Shaker within the phone that you can feel the ringtones as it vibrates the phone as it plays Really Cool! love it you can feel the phone even if you can't hear it!!
The Screen isn't as bad as I been hearing yea the color isn't as good as many phones but you can tweak the contrast and it's decent otherwise, However it could have been a little bigger though..
Camera what do you expect VGA? Well, not the best then again it's a Phone and a Plus to have it in the first place the PICS are small but do the trick.
The speaker phone sometimes creates a slight Buzz within it's self with interference, not bad really otherwise very Clear and a great feature!
My One and only Main Complaint is that you can't Display the Date Next to the time on Inside or outside LCD you can navigate to the calendar to see it but not any other settings to do this?
I sure hope that Motorola at lease will have a Firmware update released for this to fix it?
Even if I have to open the phone to View the date it would be a huge improvement!
Overall this is an Awesome Entry level camera phone that you have to get used to before you review and then it may be a little different story.
After a while havin' the Motorola's V220 have found that it actually is a good phone. I used to be owner of most of the Nokias that came with Cingular, but it seems that the quality of them(Nokia) are not the same as with Motorola's Brand Cell Phones. Even the V220 its small but it pack a strong signal all around even inside the old building that I work even going up or down the elevators it has a strong and clear signal.
But theres always a but: Cingular or any other independent supplyer of parts and accesories doesn't have much to offer for the v220. And its almost imposible to find the Software that may recognice the v220 on WinXP.
does anyone know if this phone has voice record feature? it's a feature that i can record a short voice memo?
also is there notes (similar to outlook's notes) and if so, can mobile phone tools sync notes?
thanks in advance!
I managed to get all the software from the website given and update it and everything but it just doesnt recognise the phone. Its obviously not compatible yet. I wouldnt bother postin askin about it no more people lol just post if u know when the software is gonna be available. I think u can buy the software im not sure but its over priced.
As for the ringtones i have managed to download to mp3 type tones but they are short and bit a crap but then it is a cheap phone.
I am used to the phone now and its much easier to use. The cam aint that bad but the thing that annoys me the most is that i miss calls alot coz i can rarely here it goin off in my pocket unless im in a quiet place.
i like the v220 , but like everyone else need software and cables,or else features are just a show off.Overall i give 3.5 out of 5
i thinkin of gettin the motorola V220 for crimbo is dis a gd choice
i like motorolav220 and i will like to have my personal own u see in nigeria
here the phone is very common and i like it.
My phone is great, it does everything I want it to do except display the date. Can anyone tell me how to make the date display on my internal and external screens?
Now I know that I need 3 things: mpt 1.23c_en , P2K somethying & the upgrade of 1.23 to 2.21b Thats all verry nice but I can't find a place that lets me download them
