Just got my V3x from 3 today, its one of the pretty plastic black and silver ones. At first impressed but now not so sure. I can't get the bluetooth to link to my old V3, computer or my tom tom go 700. The tom tom recognises the V3x but came back with "unable to use this phone. Your phone did not report any bluetooth features."
The camera is quite good with a 4 stage zoom and the video has 2 stage.
The calculator, calendar and alarm are just the same as the old V3 - very basic. Also you don't get the nice quick release leather belt pouch like the old V3, and it's a fairly heavy lump to carry around in your pocket. I think I will be sending this phone back and get a samsung D600. Not impressed at all.
I've had this phone about 5 days now, which replaced my LG8138. Looks fantastic, sounds reasonable and feels good in the hand. As my first motorola, am finding the firmware a bit tricky to navigate - not intuitive but ok. The predictive text is odd but effective and (hurrah) the dictionary seems vast!
The screen is superb as is the quality of the camera, with an optical and digital zoom. Seems to work nicely with my Jabra BT205 headset with no hassle setting up. Battery life is a bit on the slight side even for a 3G phone but still new...
It's probably not streets ahead of most other modern 3G phones in spec and may be surpassed by some (i wouldn't know) but I do know there isn't another 3G phone that touches it for sleek sex appeal IMHO.
dont buy 3g unless you live and work in a well built up area - you'll get rubbish reception!
Initially I was chuffed. Nice design, good features. I'm having a few software problems now after owning it for a couple of weeks. The alarm doesn't always go off and worst still, the voice recognition system that I thought was amazing no longer works!!
Does anyone know the master reset code?
music files from itunes are compatible...I tried this last night. However you won't be able to play files downloaded from the itunes store as these are protected files...you will need to remove the copy protection from the files first.
I've had this phone for about 2 weeks now and its a nice phone, reception is a poor, and it has few features, The camera is ok. I got it free on vodafone contract. this phone is sleek, but not as sleek as the v3.
I just bought this phone. Anyone know if it will play music downloaded from iTunes?
so is dis V3x worth buying im stil thinking, but i only saw the baddies comments n no gd 1, any users of V3x plz advise more . thx
i still don't own one but, according to the comments and the price at portugal (400 euros) it could be possible that this phone is a true s***! thank god that for here, in february, it comes the amazing nokia e70!!! buy it everyone!!! MarkK Huntter
I have just bought one and it's all great apart from - when you enter a phone contact - the first time you enter it, it doesn't work, just quits back to the home screen - if you delete it and enter it again - then it's ok. I've contacted Vodafone about this and am waiting to hear.
just got it and... its so so bad... i cant stop shaking my head.. since it came out the back all i have done is tut alot, and sulk... the camera quality, the position of the camera, the lil focus switch on the front, the fact there is no memory card in the box, it took ages to switch on... i could go on and on... its just one piss poor thing after another... so bad... so so bad...
There are two sound players on the V3x one is the same software as the ROKR which continues to play once the lid has shut, the other is the inbuilt software which when you close the lid allows you to control the music by the buttons on the left hand side. To anyone buying this phone, i've had mine for 3 days now & i'm loving it. Great features & a good linkup with my pc for syncing, so no hassle copying my contacts.
I got this phone as a free upgrade from Vodafone last week. They said that they had it in black, but when it arrived it was "Ash Silver", which unfortunately looks very plasticky! I have seen the black ones, on the 3 network, which i think look a lot better, but can't seem to get a straight answer out of Vodafone whether or not they will ever have them in black. Can anyone out there help. I like the features its just the plastic look that lets it down.
Spoke to Three Australia today ( 19/12/2005)to order that order the Motorola V3X which has just come to their website last weekend.
I was told by the sales person to select some other phone as they said that this phone had known issues and they have not been able to resolve them yet.
1. The battery life is not much and lasts only a day or so.
2. It does not latch on to the networks while roaming.
( I have had a Motorola A835 and it has the same problems as well, I was hoping that these problems would have been sorted out.
So I ordered the LG U880 now.
can you carry on playing MP3's through the earplugs while the phone is closed? if so, how?
It means that it was announced in the first quarter of 2005! Sometime between Jan and March!
I also have a question! It's to anybody that's handled the blue V3x!
What is the finish on it like? I was in a shop yesterday and the silver had that plastic/paint finish and the black had a sort of rubber coating!
I really like the blue version as it's a little more unusual but I'm only willing to buy it if it has the rubber coating!
Thanks to anyone that can help x x
hi I`ve got one question...what means in the paragraph "Announced"1Q
What a phone, i mean really, it's amazing. I've only had it 2 days but im already amazed. The camera quality when transferred to pc still looks excellent, the speaker volume is great, screen looks fabulous, etc etc etc. I really am impressed well done again motorola, only the second Moto i've had but i think i'll be getting another when this ones done, does anyone know how to turn on sms reports though please and where to get the drivers for my pc for the phone as i have the cable but no drivers, Cheers
