There's a good article on the Motorola V220 at http://www.mobile-phone-directory.org/Phones/Motorola/Motorola_V220.html
This phone is non-comprehensible, and truly a piece of shit. It will not send messages, it barely answers calls (you have about 2 seconds to pick it up), and has no support from any company!!! My Nokia 6340 always has a better signal and lasts a month longer on a single battery charge. GSM has no superiority here.
is this a tri band or a quadri band?Does this phone have internal memory for SMS?
Just got off the phone with Motorola sales and they told me that I cannot buy the drivers for downloading pic to PC for another 90 days. So don't think anyone will have it. At least I like the phone...
This phone is far from easy to use. Ive tried to get onto the internet but it never works? i want to be able to put MP3 sounds from my computer onto it but theres no software. I have the drivers from the usb but no software so nothing happens. And there is nothing anywhere advising u about all this. The advise line probably costs £20 a minute. Anyone got more knowledge about this?
I recently bought the v220 since I used to have the Nokia 3595 that had a lot of problems with it starting that even on a one year guarantee Cingular doesn’t have any technician to fix them and so they try to charge their clients $50 for a refurbished one in exchange of the same model. Even when they are, the cell phone is still on the year guarantee. Some my teacher coworkers have Motorola’s to and since 2 of them have the v220 and work so fine that decided to try them and so far it has been the best choice for me. My only problem is since this cell phone is new for Cingular on Puerto Rico they hardly have accessories for this model and one thing is sure that they don’t carry the Win XP program to download the pictures from the Cell Phone to the PC, I manage to find a USB cable from an old Digital Camera that fit the slot of the phone and the PC tries to read from the phone but since I don’t have the software its impossible to download the pictures. Any idea where this software could be found, try on Motclub.com but I were unable to dowload any software. Do someone know where to find this software.
omg i love this phone so much i can't wait to get it.does it have unlimited nights & weekend minutes and free long distance & roaming.i would pleasee like to know and someplace i can get it for not that much......please i really want this phone so please send me any information about this phone........thanks so much please write back!!
Does anyone know how to change the "ROGERS" in the display window? I want it personalized.
Can anyone please advise if it is possible to set up this phone to receive delivery reports when sending SMS messages. The phone in question is on Orange PAYG (UK) Thanks. Great Web site
You need to download Motorola Mobile PhoneTools, which is basically the software for all your pictures, downloads, etc. Motorola wants a lot of money for it, but I found a link that works. It has the drivers if you need them too, as well as the program. Go to
It's actually a Spanish site but this is the english translation. On the left hand side go to Programs, and click on Motorola Mobile phone tools, and then scroll to the bottom. you have to install 1.26 first, then it will have an update function. Dont' worry if your phone isn't listed when you first install the 1.26 version. it's an old version, but it will allow you to go to the update part of the main menu. then from there you can either check your phone from a list, or type in the model yourself. You probably have to type in v220, but it will still work correctly.
Hope that helps all of you that are in search of the software.
i`ve just got a v220 but can`t find a driver anywhere on the net,any ideas!
I just ordered 2 of these phones and got them for free due to the $100.00 rebates on each phone.
I also received UPS 2nd day for free from http://www.letstalk.com/product/product.htm/depId_1/pgId_100/prId_26511.htm
they also sell the usb cable for $24 which was on sale 20% off = 5.00 off
thanks jess. it does help a bit after changing the exposure to +2. and if you choose the lighting condition instead of using auto, it actually comes out better. :)
I just got it and so far so good! Anyone know how to make it ring for a longer period of time? Also, are there any other directions on the web or something?...cuz the ones they give you are pretty useless
for those looking for the usb driver... the motclub link works. you can't use the phone by itself, you'll need the Mobile Phone Tools software that motorola's selling. actually, you need both the driver and the software to make it work.
