i totally agree with you. at first i loved it but now (8 months later) i am just fed up. the phone's life time (software) is designed to serve for about 8 months and then problems begin to arise. the phone as design is just perfect but the software is a nightmare. battery isn't so bad as it is described. it serves me for about 2 days at nearly intense usage.
don'listen to the guys who got screwed with some seccond hand crap, it is a great phone, best menu ever, nokia is ofering the same for double the price, and it's still not that good, MOTO rules!!!
i bought motorola v3x cell , but it turns to be very bad. I charge it's battery twice a day even it is not enough to receive or make a call for 30 minutes. i had have high expectetion about this but finally motorila turned to be worse cell . there is no comperision of motolora cell phones with other cell phones .
If your v3x having problem, this is cause by several bug from old firmware. Kindly upgrade/update your firmware. This will solved all the issue. :)
I have the motarola V3x(for 15 months now) and i can promise you, it is the WOSRT phone i have ever encounted! the only thing it does well is take photo's! it switches off when i close the lid, when i make/recieve calls, when i put it on load speaker, and numerous other times! It often refuses to send sms's and takes it upon its self to not recieve 30% of my calls and 70% of the time it cuts out half way through a call!! 2 of my friends also have this phone and they have had more problems with it than i have! PLEASE dont buy this phone and waste your money. I will NEVER buy a motorola ever again!
Is there facility of call re-cording and voice re-cording pl infofm urgently
This fone looks lovely in the beginning, but it starts switching off by itself, just randomly!! if you change phones often, you can buy it just for the show, but if you are looking for a long term phone, its a BIG NO NO!!!
doesn't the ledge protruding from the bottom of the number pad annoy anyone else when typing messages?
I bought it a year ago. In the begionning I was a bit disappointed with it, 'cause it switched off rather often, especially after some pressure from outside(while in the public transport with the cell in a pocket). I was terribly upset with it, even after refleshing my device. But now I can say, that I am absolutely sure in my MOTOROLA (i.e. Razr v3x). I saved a complete backup of it, including phonebook, all the settings etc. The TOTAL copy of its software. So I can torture my phone in any way... And it keeps working in a stable manner. I can hardly be sure one can do the same with Nokia or SE...
My cousin bought this phone from Saudi Arabia just last Dec. 2006 and I found it good but when it encountered a virus maybe, it just totally black out, no menu and found its the mother board so i fix it to motorola service ctr. and change a new mother board in Asian version..now i cannot download and send mms! i've already set it to my service provider they said its settings already activated... but to no avail...help! I have a friend who has the same unit but in Asian version originally and same problem.. cannot download and send mms
after modding my phone. its picture quality was much better thsn SE 810i. much louder. in short much better!
Bad v3x! it always caused me trouble when i was on the phone. it makes very very annoying sound! so many times i had to recall my caller just to stay away from this sound and sure raise my bill up! bad bad v3x, gonna give some spank!
I think there is some opinions that technically not going true. Before you post your problem as your opinion it's more accurate to ask an expert first. I'm a telecom eng. and chosen this phone from a long list of possibilities. this phone is a peace of technology, is a art. I can prove it but not here, because need min. 10 full pages review. by the way most of the problems guys face to are of the followings:
1- Network problem can appear as problem of ( battery, massage problem, phone stop responding.
2- SIM problem ( like item 1 + phonebook , recent calls )
3- User problem ( can cover anything)
Bigmutt, try http://www.modmymoto.com . this site allows you mod (alternate the fearures into a cool feature) your motorola handset, u can change the skin (bakground and icons design), which is better than themes. Also it allows u raise the volume on your phone, and equalize the sound on the phone to sound much better like i did for mines.
I keep seeing users say to "mod" this phone; what's the best way (which web site) to do this? any suggestions? Thanks.
pls buy your phone to an motorola authorized dealer, to avoid fake batteries, accesories, reconditioned phones, etc...
