I have just bought the Motorola V635 but I have a problem playing MP3 files: the phone crashes without any reason and in a non-predictable way (not always the same song, not always the same point) with both the "Audio Player" and the Java "MP3 Player". The screen became white and after a couple of seconds returns to the usual background. I didn't understand yet if it is a software bug or it is a problem reading the Transflash card (or something else).
The crash occurs after few second of many minutes, there's no rule.
Has anyone the same problem? In your opinion, is it an hardware issue or a software bug?
Thanks to all for any help, bye
this is an awesome phone... completely underestimated it! great camera ad mp3 features. and the memory card slot makes all the difference! i would reccomend this phone to any user!!! but yes it is a bit pricy but if youd like to get it for $40 email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm listening and i'm buying. Went and tried it out in the store today and i'm loving it. Thanxs for ur advice charlie!
when this phone came into my store i thought what a joke another v600 with sum more options but when i put my sim in there n gave er a test i totally under estimated this phone ....the features are actually pretty good the camera quality has gotin alot better then the 551,600 ...i was so shoked on how much it improved and how i like it i ended up gettin rid of my 551 and moving on to this ....still a few mistakes from the previos from but i really do recomened it ....any questions jus ask..
I have had my V635 for nearly 3 months now and i would seriously recommend this phone! (R u listenin Maree??)
The camera is decent enough compared with a lot of phones, the only camera thats better is the SonyEriksson S700, but that phone has its own problems such as a plasticky feeling and scratches easily. If ppl are that bothered about picture quality then they should really invest in a digital camera. the motorola does pics nicely enough for snaps, its doubtful anybody would use a camera phone for pictures to hang on a wall anyway!
The mp3 player is adequate, if u want more songs to play, then jus invest in a bigger memory card. Battery life is decent, any phone's battery is enough if u charge every nite. Nothing too groundbreaking with the design, but very motorola, so should please motorola fans. on a plus side as well, the phone is not as common as other phones with similar specs, so it has a more exclusive feel to it.
The only flaws i can think of it is the areial which relects the flash when taking pics in the dark, this can be overcome if u remove the areial when taking nite pics. Then again, taking pics at nite with camera phone doesn't give good pics whatever the phone.
Overall i give this phone the thumbs up!! (thats jus my opinion, others can disagree if they want, at the end of the day its a matter of personal taste!)
can someone please tell me if this phone has good memory and how long a video can last and if u can see it properly please
Was looking at buying one of these babies as I really liked the specs but after reading all these comments I'm worried the phone is really crap. Can anyone suggest something better?? Mars
Dave, you need your phone to comunicate with your computer via a Bluetooth Dongle or a USB Datacable, and then transfer the files across into the appropriate folder located on your phone :-)
how long does it video for?
Has everything Mp3, video, camera with flash, but the onlything that has been thought about is the camera. the MP3 mode takes ages to access and the video is apauling with an average video time of 30 seconds. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!
can someone tell me how to put java games from your computer the the fone??
can someone tell me hoe to change the memory from phone to trans so i can get at my downloads
i just need help with downloading mp3 from pc, my phone is recognised by the pc but as soon as i try to use any mms options on mobile phone tools it says it's not there anymore! aargh! thanks!
One more thing about #2. This only happens when the phone is closed. If I have the phone open and I receive a txt msg, the complete sound byte plays without cutting off. Again, this is only happening on ringtones, soundbytes etc, that I download and not on the Sounds that came with the phone.
I have a few questions about this phone.
1) Does anyone know how to get rid of the ringtones and pix that have the lock by them?
2) When I assign a ringtone or sound clip to my Txt msgs, it cuts it off in the middle while I am receiving the txt msg. I never had that problem with the V300. Anyone know how to correct this?
3) The wallpapers I had on my V300 that I downloaded to the V635 come out very distorted as wallpapers. I am guessing due to the pixels or whatever. Anyone know how to correct THIS problem? :)
Any info on any or all of the above questions would be greatly appreciated. I looked all over and couldn't find anything regarding these issues.
big improvement since the v600 but a few mistakes that could of been fixed ... lil heavy but over all very good ...
I was hoping if anyone could solve this problem for me!
I was told to that to view video clips on the v635 from the net they have to be converted to MPEG4 first. The thing is i have tried it and converted the clips i want but when i go to play them it comes up with the message "file is corrupted delete file yes/no" and it does that for every clip i want to view but none of them ever work!! does anyone know how to solve this?
the phone numbers have to be saved to the actual phone memory in order to save picture files to them. you can't save picture files to your sim card. i'm not sure what it was you did with the overwrite stuff but my guess is your numbers are gone.
Regarding a few questions I have seen:
1. As of now, Motorola has not released any faceplates for this phone, but I believe that they will. Currently, metalfaceplates.com sells a few powder-coated plates in colors like sky blue, etc.
2. The inside screen is 262K colors - some sites say only 65k, but that is incorrect.
I would suggest that anyone who has questions reads the forums at phonescoop.com, this site, and howardforums.com.
