Do Not Buy A Motorola V3x razor!
problems i have experience after purchasing 2 on 2 24mnth plans...which i am still paying for! phone freezes up when making a call, will let me make call but freezes on connection,i will have to take battery out to turn phone off..
phone freezes with incoming calls causeing ringtone to stutter like a scratched cd till i remove battery and restart
text messages freeze, in coming and outgoing needing battery removed and retart of phone..
one message trying to come in can freeze phone up or turn phone off completley up to at least 6 times befre message will come thru. (thats how i now know im getting a text) same with out going messages.. motorola would not fix any of them problems as i rang them 2 days outta warranty.. they said to master reset which has done nothing.. i still have 8 months to pay off on these phones at $80 dollars a month per phone.. Really unhappy about these phones i was never offered an insurance on them, my husband is now using a mobile of a friends while i am still paying for the razr! i will never buy another one of these or any other motorola products again! i also think that all phones should be covered for the time of the contract! otherwise in my case and alot of others people are paying for phones they no longer use! i must also add i have never mistreated my phone i dont use bluetooth i dont download and i have never had the chance to use video calling.. i do use the camera and video camera luckily these dont have any problems touch wood!
On this phone, you can play your saved movies on an mp4 or 3gpp format..
But, this phone only uses a 3gp format when recording videos..
Then, this phone only uses an mp4 format when you record your videocall conference..
And, take note this phone can not play videos or is not capable of feeds via mobile streaming..got it?
I have been using this phone long enough and after all i haven't experienced any problems yet, may be because i don't use it roughly, i take good care of it, i don't consume the total internal storage i just use the 40 - 50% of its storage so it doesn't freeze, lag, or among others, and most of my files are saved in my external memory card:)
One thing i experienced once was when i tried to saved as much files as possible making it internal storage full - when i opened the flip the screen came to be white, it turned off then on.. then i deleted all the unneccessary files..so on and so forth..having done all these and all that, it never happened again..i'm not anymore facing problems with my v3x up to this point in time..and to tell you honestly i'm using this phone as a wireless modem for always..like what i do now..
hi, i just wanna ask, can i use my motorola v3x as my modem in my laptop (hp pavilion ze2000)? here's my email add email@example.com
thanks a lot,
what!? oh my..... but anyway if you're a globe prepaid or postpaid user, sory its not supported, but with smart, still, i think not...
checkout this site for games and others www.dotsis.com to enjoy your phone more heheheh goodluck!
i just buyed motorola v3x and im taking a good care of it....coz i like the features...i have question,can i watch movies on my mobile(v3x)?
yeah right,.... unfortunately i have it alredy but i was dismayed of its capability and "sickness" (somethin like that). it is true that it is not prone to viruses however it is still not a good phone. to those who dream of having a motorola high end phones, DON'T BUY! LOL
ey rick don't be offended there will come a time that you'll know what we're talkin' about.
it's a good phone when it works. but I also get the "white screen" and blackouts occassionally during use. And then I had to put my sim into another phone for a few days because I didn't have my charger with me, and when putting it back in (carefully too, I'm not stupid), one of the little prongs in the phone that contacts with the battery broke. I was very surprised it happened, as I was not doing anything more than you should be able to do with a phone without breaking it.
But for a low cost phone, it's still a good product. Just remember that if you get the lower priced phones, they don't last as long and won't be as reliable.
To view pictures while listening to music, just select Hide and then press the power button for you to return to the main page,, then select multimedia then pictures and so on..
Same with net surfing, while music is on, select hide, then press the (red) power button to returna to the main menu, then press the blue world icon to surf the wap site..
Same with chatting / sending messages, you could listen to music while sending messages or chatting..
Alright, very well said, now everything is understood a little better!Ü Yeah, the one you mentioned regarding Emergency Only/ No Service.. i also experienced that one just a month ago, i thought my phone was the one having a problem coz i also happened to compare it to my other phoneS, the reason for that one is that the Network Service provider was having some system enhancements &upgrades, but now it's back to normal... Just a month ago just before i knew the problem, whenever my network setup is set to automatic i experience this type of problem (No network/Emergency Only) and then i tried to select 900/1800 mode then the signal strength becomes full / normal, i made a report regarding this matter to the Network Technical Team then eventually they said that they are having, like i said,system enhancements / upgrades,, so from then on everytime i experience this i always call to mind that this is just normal.. now everything is been back to normal even if i chose automatic there's no problem anymore.. probably it's always the 3G/HSDPA that is being affected everytime they are having enhancements.. i just noticed that Motorola phones have been sensitive for these phenomena.. or under Normal conditions when you still experience these things you could always put your phone into auto mode,, then to refresh the signal don;t turn it off,, just turn on the aeroplane mode then off again..and so on
Dear Ricky (tm)
Sorry i think you misunderstand me. Actually i knew what you are talking about.
When i said compare i meant the signal. Most of the time when the signal (2G, 2.5G or 3G) is weak in particular area, my friends (what ever phone it is) have at least one to two bar but mine will show EMERGENCY ONLY/NO SERVICE. Even for my wife i bought her the Mot V6 the signal is much much more stronger than mine even we are in the same area. Maybe the version (yr mfg, s/w etc.)different i think..?? I've tried to select the band (in network setup) when ever i face the signal problem but it doesnt help much. I even complaint and argued with my service provider regarding the signal problem i faced and successful in getting some REBATE on my phone bill (ha..ha..) but this can't be long..
fabrigs.please do not buy this phone.i repeat do not buy this phone.i read a guys comment that i would regret to buy this phone,i didnt bother but the moment i got it ,i regreted it !!!!!!so please dont buy motorolas.seriously you cant minimize the audio player except when you use them in sounds,then the phone's speaker is extreamly soft even when set to maximum.and you cant preview pics when youre listening to music.please dont ignore the phone is really not worth a cent.GET NOKIA OR SONY ERICSON.THE BATTERY LIFESPAN IS VERY VERY SHORT!!!!!,well thats about a little bit of everything i can tell you about the phone.DONT BUY DONT BUY
Sorry for that one, but i think you've been missing out one important detail about your phone V3x.. i mean.. V3x's feature is really different from SE & Nok's.. Let me reiterate that V3x offers automatic band switching from 2G, 2.5G up to 3G mode, Our networks now offer different signal types, namely: 1. GSM/GPRS signal (cellphone signal), 2. 3G signal, and 3. HSDPA signal,, let me tell you that these three signals are not the same alright? coz most commonly, people tend to consider these 3 as one! BUT..BUT..BUT it's a BIG Mistake! alright, here we go..When your phone Perceives a FINER signal, it displays it, one great example is the one you've stated, your phone perceives a 3G signal - it shows 3G on your screen & at this time it ALSO SHOWS how strong your 3G signal is on a certain location, let me just inform you that not everywhere a 3G signal is STRONG, it's weak on some places.. now, on places where there is only 2G/2.5G signal or the so-called cellphone signal - have you noticed that the signal strength bar is FULL?? alright, here is a tip for you, do you really like to test whether your phone's signal is malfunctioning or not? Go to network set-up, select Band, then select 900/1800 (GSM Band/Signal) then you'll notice that your signal is always FULL! One more thing, let me just inform you again that GSM / Cellular signal's coverage is MUCH..MUCH..MUCH.. wider than that of 3G or even HSDPA:) Mark that!:) Now on the case oo SE & Nokia phone, let me inform you guys that these phones only display the GSM/Cellular signal Strength, THEN..THEN..THEN.. you could only say that you do have a 3G signal when an ICON is lit or shown on the upper hand corner of your phone.. UNLIKe with Motorola, it is kinda specific to it, when the Moto phone perceives a 3G signal it displays an ICON plus it also indicates the 3G signal strength through Signal Bars..AND ON THE OTHER HAND, when the Moto Phone perceives a finer or stronger Cellular Signal on a specific area it show 2G or 2.5G plus it also displays how strong it is through signal bars..(pls remember always Cellular signal is much wider than 3G / HSDPA signal).. now did you get my entire point?:)
May i know how have you used your phone? i mean what features, installations or add-on's did you do as well as the modifications, storage, saved files & everything.. yup, based from your phone's factory setting.. and now how did it turn out like that?
Hi, i've been using this phone for more than a year and so far its still working quite well. I'm quite satisfied with it's performance. The only thing that bothering me is that the reception is quite weak compared with SE or even V6. Is it normal for V3x?? Or only mine have this problem. Actually i tired to change the reception chip or what ever related but the technician said that IT'S Mot STANDARD.
One more thing is that now my V3x software is AS_U_85.97.F1P. is there anything better or even faster than this?? And how to get it? Thanks
worst phone I have ever owned! Thoroughly disappointing. Stick with the nokia's!!!
thanks Rick but i am a very carefull person when it comes to gadgets. actually i've been very loyal to motorola however i was dismayed with this model coz its my first time to go to a repair center.
I got a second opinion from a certified repair center and i found out that the ribbon wire is still in good condition. and they require me to come back the next day. however, i doubted to leave it there. the technician said that the problem is its software. can there still a possibility that it will be repaired? HELP ME ASAP!!!
i'm already plannin' to shift to NOKIA
This is not a good phone and i simply do not recommend it for anyone.
The reason being is as follows after a firmware upgrade was performed by the manufacturer:
1. Frequent software shutdowns/black outs (this was occurring before except that now it happens more regular)
2. Call drops (while on a phone call sometimes the phone decides to reboot itself or permanently shuts down)
3. Regular hangs/software freezes (this happens quite often whether it is scrolling through a menu or when the phone enters battery saving/screensaver mode or by simply just flipping the phone on/off) this is also followed by a blank white screen
The only reason i use this phone is because it was given to me by my work as they have a contract for those. After having to deal with it i feel it is necessary that i make everyone aware of the down falls.
