For anyone wondering how to set up internet services on your phones, all you need to do is contact your service provider and get the settings off them. Some phones will come pre-loaded with local networks but the majority will need you to call up the network to get the settings. Happy new year.
It was 12:30 almost, on christmas eve, and not even excited about christmas I rolled back and forth restless... I didn't even feel like christmas. Remembering my brother's joke about openng a present at one past midnight I got up, and decided to drain myself somehow, I hopped down the stairs that creeked and grabbed a present from under the tree - I knew what it was, I had peeped earlier lifting up the cellotape tab, it had been only the seond time I had done it in my life, I once slashed my GBA SP and then shoved it back under the tree :p. Sitting on my bed my bro came out of his bedroom next to me, he had been fiddling on his laptop late and had gone to brush his teeth and saw it and said, don't brake it (I WON'T!!). Apart from that the house was silent.
I unrapped it and spent half an hour getting it turned on, as I was careful to hide it under the pillow incase Mum or Dad get up to go to the toilet. My stocking had already been left, it was actually a bag, 'cus Mum had been lazy and I hadn't actually been asleep when she left it (I was going to comment on how womenly santa was). Putting in the batterry, sim card (which I did wrong the first time) and then the 32M transflash provided, I put back on the cover and removed some obscuring label and pressed ON.
There was a loud angelic jangle. The first thing I did was try put the phone on silent, which occurred with a loud bleep, then discovered the multimedia menu, turned on the camera, it had a flash, it was a good camera, even better once I changed the save folder to the transflash which enabled me to set it up to 1.23 Megapixels. It has upto 8x zoom and about a dozen colour effects, not to mension the exposure change! You can access it by the camera key on the phone or via the side which enables self portrait. There is far too many features to comment on this phone, so I'll get out what I can. You can personalise this phone, from changing the smart key or shortcut items on the desktop, and backgrounds and screensavers! It has motomixer which is okay, you basically get to mix a backing track and change the tempo, it's midis. This phone does not yet have a designated MP3 player, but you can play them through a unstable JAVA application, or even better, through the ringtone sampler, which is much better. It has a headphone scoket, and the headphoenes included are brilliant, and act as a headset! If you buy this phone new now, you'll get it with the new firmware, which isn't perfect but better than the last I heard, mines 24R or something, I had a few white screens but everything else is brilliant, and they were whilst using multimedia features and I did too much stuff at once, then the phone got grumpy :_). Yes, you are right, it CAN record videos, and transfer them too to play, though you'll need to encode them to MP4 or 3GP, I haven't tried any others. It can record sounds but you have to listen to them via the ear-speaker, the loudspeaker is great, it sound crystal clear, I could set it sooo loud, the volume controls can get a bit confusing as there's one for everything (and one quick access one on the side of the phone). In the way of tools, you got a handy calculator, Datebook, voice recorder, alarm clock, the phone even has chat facilities and DRM activation lists! The phone has messaging to the extreme, aswell as neat pictures for your phone book, the WAP is enhanced, on virgin it was 0.5p/KB which proved expensive for large JAVA games, seeing as motorola have temporarily disabled PC transfering of them for standard users, though if you know how, you can use motocoder's MIDway and transfer them, but it's not easy to use : (
On the techy side, the phone has dual GSM, and bluetooth, which can be confusing to use but you simply highlight a file and select COPY then "Bluetooth", from there scan for devices, unless you are already connected. The screen is crystal clear, the out ones good too, it changes the background according to your desktop background, and displays the time. Closing the flip-phone will exit any open menu's or items, unless specifically set up, IE. the MP3 player will still play with it closed. The buttons press nicely and the design is nice. You need to charge it everyday with heavy use or every few days if you leave it on standby. Believe me, this phone has got everything, multiple callers, several nifty JAVA games included, it's one heck of a phone. So don't wait. Though on the down side;
1.The PC software is terrible, it doesn't do much, not more than the phone can do except sync, backup and transfer CERTAIN things, stick with the windows browsing for memory card browsing and transfer stuff to phone memory from the memory card on the actual phone itself. The PC software stopped functioning full stop after a live-update and prooved buggy in the first place, did harm to my PC.
2.JAVA & skin uploading from PC has currently been disabled by motorola.
3.On top of that access to the actual phone memory is disabled except through a dumb manager (memory card is free to browse and change though).
4.The phone is slightly buggy even with the latest firmware, encountering some white screens or errors randomly when playing media, or just when it's having a mess around...
5.USB cable isn't included sadly, and it's not a usual cable so you have to buy their special one..
But still, it's amazing!
this phone is not great. in the last month i have had about five problems with it. and only today i cannot access my inbox. the phone takes me to my phonebook. if anyone knows a solution to this problem then please let me know. thank you
i hav just bought the phone and unlocked it to orange does any 1 no how to do get the internet up when u hav unlocked it please some 1 tell me
what version of windows are you all using because i can't get it to reconise my phone using m/e
andy: how do u get the software for the phone?
I think its a wonderful cellphone, it used to freeze but then a technisian fixe it, he flash it or something like that, and now is wonderfull, i love it.
DO NOT GET THIS PHONE, i have had 3 so far, o2 wont let me have anything else until June, it freezes every 2 minutes and goes 2 a white screen. USELESS, battery life, - awful, and will never charge up!
Before you decide you like this phone or if you want to get it, PLEASE just read all the opinions posts here it would really help your decision. This is probably one of the top 3 if not the best GSM flip phone in the world because it has EDGE internet connection, Megapixel camera, Memory slot, Bluetooth, and a flip phone. You are NOT going to find another phone out there with these criteria besides the Motorola A780 which is big and bulky.
I have posted here before that DO NOT get this phone if you dont know how to flash new software/firmware because the origninal 24R software is very buggy. People have changed the stock software to 6FR, 88R, 90R which will make this phone run like a champ. If you can't get new sofware in there then you are gonna face these issues:
1. slow responsiveness in buttons
2. white screen shows up once a while
3. Phone restarts for no reason
4. browsing internet is terrible buttons to
slow to scrow the contents.
5. sending SMS may cause screen to go blank/white
6. When you play mp3s with 192kps quality the phone will restart. It likes 128kps
7. Battery life sucks with orignal software
With the new software/firm ware which I have is 6FR. This phone is awesome, I have owned many many highend phones including PDA phones and Windows smart phones and I love this phone because its small and packed with features unmatched in the market today.
If you want the answer to some of the basics questions such as camera resolution or ringtones how about starting with the User's Manual. If you want internet settings go to your phone service provider web site and they will have the answer for that. If you want advanced technical answers go to howardforums.com and registration is free and you can make your V635 into whatever you want. The reason this phone even get 8.3 rating here because most people dont know what they are doing and just hate the phone and give it low ratings.
i got this phone unlocked and currently use t-mobile. Does anybody know how to acces th internet with the phone?
Seems like there is quite a lot of complaints with this phone, but somehow it doesn't put me off, it's the only phone I want, design is perfect and the features look just to my liking. I think the main problem is that some people are having problems with the processor speed, I saw a lot of complaints on crashing and one or two on slow operation. This may have been rectified at a later release because most people find it fine. Another thing to remember, if you had a faulty phone - you are more likely to spread bad comments about it than purposely going on the internet and praising it.
To get down to what I think, I think the camera quality is gorgeus in the sample photos (note that a lot of people did not find the option of resolution changing) and recording videos isn't something you get with every phone (and a flash!!!!). MP3 player is going to be very useful, no you no longer have to carry around a seperate one, but you can't exactly replace it, remember you can't expand the memory to more than 256MB, but it's probably good for day to day bus listening. The colour screen IS 256k not 65k, that is the outer screen, it was not clearly marked. Bluetooth is likely to be useful, I see a lot of people in school sending back and forth videos (not your average kiddy program mind you), photos and sending ringtones they bought. A bonus is that you no longer have to buy stuff, with USB connectivity *drag and drop* and so on... Thank god there is no direct internet button (or which I know of) I have hit those keys sooo many times when I've used other peoples phones. Looking forward to getting this phone for christmas and opening it in all it's crisp glory, and not exactly to make calls, it will be the first new-age phone I will have. No more b/w Nokias!
can someone plz tell how i can expand the internal memory of the phone without it freezing
im rly confused i dont no wether to get this phone or the samsung D500? how long can this phone take a video for? plz email bck as i need to no the answer quick?????

In your specifications, you said 256K colors and in the Motorola page, it says 65K colors, so please correct that info.
