I have assigned several pictures to phone book entries by selecting the contact and then selecting view > edit > Picture. Selecting "change" then brings up all the pictures that I have stored on the phone. This will only work for contacts and pictures stored on the phone. To avoid seeing double entries all the time if you want to keep contacts on both phone and sim, you can put all your phone enties into the vip category and use this as your default phone book.
The only real gripe I have with his phone after a week's use is the buttons on the side which I keep activating every time I pull the thing out of my pocket! I have some very weird photographs!! There must be a way of deactivating these so I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and read the manual.....
im having the same odd feeling with the flip, it's not as smooth with v600/620 series. how do you like the video recording?
hey i've had the v635 for a week now and i cant work out how to use the mp3 player like getting music on to it i have read the book what came with it a million times but i still cant do it can sum one help me plz i really want 2 listen to my music ! email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com thank you ! x
Managed to sort out the picture phone book question, it would appear that you have to save them in the phone memory, then select the picture from the pictures section and you have an option to apply to address book entry. It works this way but not if you select the phone book entry and try to apply the picture from there.. Strange !
Also does anyone have a odd feeling flip ? I can't really describe it, it just feels like it's catching on something. It's not as smooth as my old V500 flip and wondered whether it was just the way the flip is made ? Please answer as I'm in two minds about returning the phone.
i got this phone 3 weeks ago and tried using the video camera, which i have 256mb transflash on it, the video can only take 20 seconds to record and then it freezes. i use the maximum as its options for recording as well as the transflash to save the video. is this the real thing?
Official says this phone has 5MB internal memory just like Motorola V600. I checked, it actually has over 11MB internal memory, over 7MB available for user.
Also, for people who have trouble listening to mp3 they transfered over from PC. Motorola only support mp3 encoded in bit rate less than or equal to 128kbps. Hence, any mp3 encoded with over 128kbps will not function on this phone, you will receive system error message.
I have calculated the data transfer rate through edge on this phone. I get no more than 14.6KBps transfer rate and I'm using Cingular service. So it's actually 2x faster than 56K Modem instead of 3x faster as it is advertised. (56K/8=7kbps, 7x2=14 means 2x faster)
The UK version of Motorola V635 I purchased online does not include data cable, CD and stereo earphone(I was told by the authorized dealer). The phone is unbranded and that maybe the reason why those accessories were not included. You can purchase stereo headset from ebay for less than $14USD and bluetooth USB adapter for less than $25USD.
I have found that the most efficient way to read data from the transflash card and transfer to/from a pc is via a device that can read from an SD card, using the SD adaptor with comes with the transflash card boxed with the v635. Multi-card readers for pc's cost less than £15.00 in the UK if you do not already have an SD card equipped device.
Having said that, I also find the Bluetooth connection works well and makes a robust connection with the headset. I have also managed to transfer data to and from a xda with no problems.
How exactly does the bluetooth work on this phone. Im not having much luck with it.
I just explained the data transfer speed 2 posts down there, care to read?
Also, people, buy this phone only if you can get chromed case for this phone!! I'm not the leather case or holster, but the back case for battery and memory card. Black chromed V635 looks far more superior than any phone on the market :D
I'm buying this phone very soon and i would just like to know is a good phone because all the features sound well good on it, thats why i want to get it!
Also can anyone tell me which is faster when transferring data between the pc and phone and vice versa? Using the bluetooth usb adaptor or just a normal usb wire?
would you reccomend me to get this phone? if not, what do you suggest i get?
I was transfering approximately 14MB mp3 files via bluetooth from my computer. The speed was 14.0kbps, rarely it went upto 14.6kbps. I'm not sure if it's the maximum data transfer speed Edge offers on this phone. I don't have another phone so I can't compare the speed from other non-edge phone.
I copied a 5MB mp3 file into the audio file located in MMC(removable). However, I can't listen to it, there was an system error message. I looked at the detail, it's 228KBps. When I use mobile toolkit and transfer it, I can listen to it. However, the detail of that mp3 is only 32 mono now. Does anyone know what's going on? What's the highest KBps mp3 does Motorola V635 support?
Just to correct my post below - The option to resize pictures appears to be only available to those files stored on the transflash card, so if you have originals that you want to keep as best quality and also use as phone number attachments, it would be best to save them to another device or make a copy and then resize and copy/move to the phone memory....Phew!
To turn your own mp3's into ringtones you will have to store them in the phone memory rather than the transflash. If you already have them on your translflash it is easy to copy or move them to the phone memory by selecting multimedia > sounds, then navigating to the sound you want to use and pressing the top middle button again to bring up all the options for that sound file and selecting "copy" or "move". Once that file is in the phone memory, pressing the middle button again will bring up the option to switch storage devices so that you will be able to see your mp3 amongst all the preloaded stuff. Pressing the options button once again with your mp3 selected will show you a menu that includes "Apply as ring tone". You can also apply individual ring tones to phone book entries with options in the phonebook menu. Remember that you only have 5 megs of phone memory, so keep your mp3 ring tones as short as possible.
Regarding the ealier post about assigning pictures to phone book entries, it sounds like the phone memory might already be full which is not allowing you to save anything more. Try deleting or moving any mp3's or pictures/vids that might be stored there. If you already have pictures saved to the phone there is the option to resize them which appears to recompress the files but still perfectly adequate for displaying on the device. This saves a lot of space but make sure you save them somewhere else if you want to view them on a larger screen or make them available for printing.
By the way, I don't work for Motorola - I am just delighted with this phone having had to put up with the stylish but inadequate v3 until o2 agreed to exchange it!
Hello folks, love the fone
Just a quick question, ive been using the mp3 player for a while now, is there any way i can turn these into ringtones??
Sorry, 2 questions..
1) What is Mobile Phone Tools
2) WHere do I stick my flashcard? (no rude replies. Please.)
And yes, I am a complete and utter phone retard
Just upgraded to V635 from a V500 and it's much the same phone except for the additional features ( if that makes sense ).
One question, how do I attach pictures to phonebook entries ? The manual tells you to store them on the trans card but if you do that when you try to choose the photo within the phonebook it only looks at the internal memeory. If you put the picture on the internal memory you can select it but it will not save it.. It's driving me nuts !
