This was a replacement for a Sony Z600 and it seemed an improvement, particularly the handsfree capability. However I kept missing calls and finally discovered that the buttons on the side were changing the ring mode to Silent when it was in my pocket. The supplying shop advised that you can't lock the ring mode to stop this happening, and other Motorola's are the same. A shame as it was a great business phone in all other respects.
This is a wicked fone! I'd recommend it to anyone whos planning on buying it! The camera is great but the video aint very good! Apart from that its a grand fone! Its a bit bulky but i believe all moto fones r like this? But u soon get used to it and its partly the reason u get such good fotos!x
Yes outgoing messages are stored, not entirely sure how many but you get plenty of warning that you are running out of space. And yes you can type messages in whatever way suits you.
Great little phone and very user friendly.
Hope this helps.
Hi everyone, great place to come to for help lol, could anyone please tell me does this phone have a sent box/outbox? and if so how many messgaes does it save? i like this as my nokia does and i dont want to buy this phone if it doesnt have this feature, also how many messages does it store in your in box? and finally (sorry to go on) im worried about the text message writing, i dont like predictive text, i like to text the letters one by one....eg if i wanted to type 'dad' id just press 3,2,3 can i do this on this phone
Ok...after much annoyance, I have finally managed to suss out the Bluetooth on my phone....
The instructions given below are somewhat accruate..nut only if you are looking to find a headset, etc.
If you want to send a file (as long as it is not locked) then navigate to your file, click your green answer button and a menu should appear...you want to send your file to a device, which it will start to detect...once detected you can send as per instructed...
Bear in mind though that if you are trying to send ringtones, etc you need to make sure that they are not locked (i.e. have a red padlock next to them!) other than that, you should have no problems
Ignore that last post just seen the picture
Does the Motorola V547 have a built in areial?
darrel did you put the backlight on?
I haven't actually bought this phone but have been looking at it to buy should i but it?
I had the Motorola v525 (the model before this one) and found it really good!
I wasn't able to send media messages and i was on o2 i found out that on whatever network you are on you have to ring that networks help line which costs about 5 quid for the call and they will take you through the steps to be able to send the media messages, so my advice is to go in the shop specialised in your network and get them to ring up the help line to sort it out
hope this helps some people!
oh and if the people in the shop say we've sent a message and you'll receive a txt saying you can send mms, its a load of rubbish and a waste of time it doesn't work!
Gret little phone for the price. Has little bells and whistles and more usefull features than others. Although would like more memory and less useless software preinstaled (such as games) or ability for users to remove features they don't want.
best fone 4 the best value £109. very cheap for all the things u get with it.eg:blue tooth, color screen, camera and vidio recording very good quality. if your looking for a fone make it this one.
Just one more thing I sent a picture to my boyfriend looking like mona lisa from the fotofunpack 2, he now thinks Im strange and prefer women when really I was only having a laugh!! Thanks and Goodbye MOTO!!!!!

Apart from that get it, its great!!!!!!!! not!!!!!!

i got this phone a few days ago, just sent out one text to all my friends telling them my new number, and now its playing up. it had trouble sending all the texts at once and now when i try to go into my outbox it will only let me once, then when i try to do it again, it jams till i turn it off, then back on, and then it will let me check my outbox just the once again.... im very confused. seems to be the only problem so if anyone can help me id appreciate it!!!thanks
I loved this phone, only problem is I can not get my bluetooth working, by following the instructions given. My husbands phone can find me, but I can not find him and when he tries to send me something it says can not connect. I have looked at all the postings and tried the instructions on one, but still couldn't do it, can anyone help.
