Download mp3 tracks to your computer, and then transfer them to your phone via usb using the transflash card as the default connection on the phone - or transfer mp3's that you already have stored on your computer in the same way. As others have pointed out, the phone can only handle mp3's at a bitrate of 128kbs or less. You can check the bit rate before transfer to the phone by right-clicking the file and bringing up "properties". Some music sites let you chose bitrates (quality) for your downloads depending on your internet connection. You might need to experiment.
Thanks And for useful info regarding the SD adapter. Still not any brighter on the MP3 side of things. More help required pls. Do I connect USB cable and go onto music site to download and send it from there ?. Or can I download from Media Libary ?. HELP !!
Gwen - To increase earpiece volume during a call, press the upper part of the long thin button on the right hand side of the phone as you look at it. This is the higher (and biggerr) one of two buttons actually on the side of the case itself, not inside the clamshell.
What is probably happening is that when you are gripping the phone to talk you are pressing the lower part of this button, which will bring the earpiece volume down. You will only be able to adjust the volume during a call, as the button has different functions at other times - ring volume and ring style depending on whether the clamshell is open or closed.
Does anyone know any way of disabling these buttons? They can be so annoying when you hit them accidently, as others have pointed out.....
Absolutly an excellent phone! Camera is great, flash is a mini flashlight also, and the built in mp3 player just adds up on the alredy great phone! Not to mention a trans-flash card you get with the phone-it can be used in your digital camera as a SD-card!
Motorola has done a great job!
1) bitrate must be less than 128kbps
2) I don't know
3) Video format is .3gp
can anyone please help!
I've got the phone now and its great but i'm having a few problems!!
1) I uploaded mp3's to the memory card and it plays them but for some it doesn't, it says system error! why do some work and some don't?
2) How do you send pics, videos etc via bluetooth? How does it work? Is it something to do with the headset provided or not? I tryed moving a pic/vid via bluetooth and it said bluetooth link is busy, what do i do?
3) I uploaded a video onto the memory card which was 23mb and it was an mpeg and it transferred it properly. But when i try to access it on the phone, the video isn't there but it still takes up the space on the card, where the hell does it go? What format do i have to convert it to in order for it to work?
plz could someone answer these!
Does anyone know how to turn the earpiece up on the handset, mine keeps going quite.

Great phone! Had this 2 days now. excellent phone, feels like it wont snap in my hand like the v550 did, feels strong. keeps freezing on me though, usually through looking at mi pictures or reading messages. the end call/switch off fone button also crashed on me yesterday, had to switch whole phone off, but worked fine when i turned it back on, whats that all about? loudspeaker is one of the best ive heard, crystal clear, even when playing mp3s. camera is great as is video. the mobile phone tolls cd has stopped working for me, loads 3/4 then says that it is missing something? dont know about that, may have to buy a new cd. the 6000mb on fone is enough, for pictures and short videos, i have 300 pics and 3 short videos and still have over 1000 mbs left. yet,16mb of removable memory is not much. i can only fit 2 songs on it? some one told me that you have to compress the files, does anyone know how to do that? im not too sure. HELP REQUIRED. all in all, excellent phone except for a few minor complaints.
Not sure what the problem is with recent calls - I might be missing something - but the "view" option is assigned to the righ-hand soft key. When you select "Received calls" or "Dialled Calls" from the recent calls menu, a list of calls comes up and the right soft key changes from "select" to "view". Scroll to the call that you want to know about, press "view" and you get the name (if stored), number, time, date and duration.
No, you do not need to install the software to move files to your card. It could be a few things from what I read. There have been issues with COM port 3 needing to be open. Are you trying to save to the phone or the memory card?
Also, the disk does contain software but it is hidden within all the ads. The best way is to go to the CD via Windows Explorer and double-click the setup.exe
Has anyone found a solution to the problem mentioned earlier about the "recent calls" list not having a "view" option, only a "delete"?
hey there, does anyone here know how to upload the pics taken which are in your phone to the pc? I tried connecting the usb but nothin happened! does it require some software or driver of somekind to be installed on the pc to be able to upload from phone to pc? as I got a cd with the phone to start with and when I popped it in, it was nothing but some kind of advertisement (not an actual driver or image software). Help please, if anyone can shed some light to this I'd be very very grateful! :D
