I need motorola phone tool for V3x. Can somebody send me a zip file via email?
This is the worst phone I have ever had. It is clear that this phone has a number of faults, yet Telstra refuses to acknowledge this problem, even though they admit it the phone is faulty. Unbelievable!
I got V3 as a present. It started to have problems after 1 month in use. It turns off automatically and sometimes got really crazy that it lights on and off continuously until you remove the battery and put back in again. That is the only (temporary) solution that seems worked. I simply do not know if my mobile will work in the next minute. Do not buy it!
@ Kristine Yap
You may choose KRAZR K1 instead of V3x coz that one is somewhat later than the v3x:)
I have one cell this. This Great. Excelent!! I Changed the Firmware. Very Good
v3x is the worst phone I have ever had, it turns off on it's own and when I put the phone down it turns off!
Hi everyone! im planning to buy another phone, i just want to ask which is better, the v3x or Motorola KRZR K1. im very confused. ive read alot of bad reviews about v3x so im quite hesitant to purchase this unit. thank you very much. looking forward to your opinions.
It's not a coincidence, it depends on how you handle it or how you take good care of it.. the one you experience now is one of the most frequently asked questions..not only on Motorola but also on other high-end brands like "N", "SE", "Samsung", & etc..
Kindly read my earlier posted discussion about "Proper Phone Use / Care, & other Practical Tips" dated last 2007-12-20 18:58 Ricky PRQ7...
"There is nothing in this world that is called an ugly phone, except there's only a careless phone user"...right?:-)
Motorola seems to have serious QC problems which it needs to solve before it's reputations suffers further. My latest one developed a problem with munu navigation only a couple of months after I got it, and it cleared up few days later, then a few weeks later it wouldn't connect to the network ofter 5 minutes of turning it on with a 'no service' message. The other one I had wouldn't charge. Got a new battery, no improvement. Great camera and screen, but two phones with serious issues, is that a coincidence or are they plain unreliable.
I have had this phone about 14 months, i absolutely love it, have the orange coloured one. Anyway, xmas day it started to be a bit naughty, it sent me 75 sms messages from the same person, this was after my calls started to fail. I called telstra, apparently this is common with this phone, they changed me to a different network, it worked good for a month, and now back to the same. I am waiting on a replacement handset now, sony ericsson z750i. I really don't want to lose this motorola as i really like it, the screen huge and camera great, but I will need it one day and it will fail me. I too agree, battery life very short.
the phone at first didnt seem that appealing..the default skin made it look unattractive but then i found out that it was basically a non OS phone and found the site www.modmymoto.com and i was amazed...i could almost design the menu structure in any way i wanted and then after i started loving this fone and just cant imagine gettng bored of it...what i can say is that dont judge it by the looks...coz its got loads of potentials...
Oh yes- I forgot something in my review below. The battery life is pathetic. If you use it a lot, barely lasts a day. On standby, maybe 36-48 hours.
Potentially one the worst phones in the history of mankind. And interestingly, all the problems i had with this phone were problems that other owners I know experienced as well, meaning that there are actual design and technical flaws.
First point - If you are a nokia user, stay with nokia. Motorola has aspects that you initially think you can deal with by ultimately become painful. Even the Star key being the space bar in sms becoming irritating rather than something you get used to. Nokia has incredible reliability. It's always amazing that when a friend of mine loses or breaks his/her phone, the spare one in the closet is a nokia and still works, even if it's 5+ years old. Motorola is good for about 12-18 months depending on how much you abuse it.
Second, the menus are somewhat illogical (not completely illogical). There were often features I would expect to find in one menu, but there located in another. Sometimes in the submenu of a menu I wouldn't expect to find it in.
Third - this phone fails spectularly as.... being a phone. Yes we've got the camera. Yes we can upload ringtone from a computer. Yes we can mms and surf the net. But ummm... what's the deal with calls ending random? About 20% of calls over one minute would suddenly drop out (and this was not an issue with my phone. Other V3x users said exactly the same thing happened to them). Open the flip top to make a call? Umm - yeah some sort of white screen, then it starts rebooting... then it connects. Does that mean I've been disconnected from the network for the past hour?
OPen the flip top to answer the phone and sometimes it would hang up on them. Other times, I dialled a number and it said "call failed" two or three times before i gave it a rest for 30 seconds, dialled again and it got through.
Don't worry ladies and gents. I've had the phone fully services and checked over by a motorola service center. It made no difference in the end.
A stylish phone with bells and whistles. And if you plug it into your laptop and use it as a modem, it's fast and flawless. But beyond that, it was the worst mobile sale decision i've ever made. After 19 months, my phone has finally decided to crap itself and die. It still turns on, but i cannot make a call at all and sometimes the display gets fuzzy lines.
I've recycled it and gone back to nokia. It was light a breath of fresh air and - shock horror - i can acutally make calls reliably again.
General consensus from my friends who got this was that they loved it for about two months, indifferent the next three months and then hated it with a passion until it died (often within 12-18 months).
DON'T BUY THIS PHONE
You can record videocall conversations, not voice calls :)
The Nokia N76 has just been launched by Nokia just in the 2007, the RAZR Blade phones were launched by Motorola in the First Quarter of year 2005,, which is the true copycat, pal?
plz send me any applications of v3x.
or any Theme & Games etc....
