If you want to use mp3's as ringtones, take out your flash card, and connect the USB cable into the phone. Use Mobile Phone tools and install the mp3's onto the phone memory. It should work. If you leave the Flash card inside, it confuses the phone and makes it thinking it is a Flashcard drive.
In theory, to copy mp3 files from computer to the v635, it is best to use the transflash card as the default usb connection. You can configure this on the phone from settings > connection > usb connections, and selecting "memory card" instead of "Data/Fax". Then with Motorola's rather flaky software installed on your computer, connect the phone with the usb cable and it should appear as another drive on your computer, with several folders one of which is labeled audio. From then on it is just a copy and paste job.
In practise I have found it very frustrating trying to get my computer to recognise the phone, but I have managed it using this sequence:
1. Run the phone tools software without the phone connected, and ignore all pop-ups.
2. connect the phone while it is switched off.
3. Switch on the phone.
This is the only way I can get it to work, but even then it might need more than one attempt. Sometimes a computer reboot is required!
its easy to stick mp3's on, when u use the usb cable, to sync with the PC, put the mp3s in the audio folder on the transflash card, and when u disconnect they will appear in the sounds folder
I have the software that came with it, but it just seems to be an advertising thing
I would love to know how to use the mp3 player. i have the software, but perhaps my pc isn't powerful enough ?!?!?
I have no idea how to use the MP3 player or to get music onto my phone etc etc
I Cant find anything in the book at all...
Can someone talk me through it step by step - I would be VERY grateful indeed
You need to purchase the data cable with software CD. There are tons available on ebay. Just search "Motorola V600" I know it's V635 but ask the seller for the compatibility before buying.
can anyone help me I have a v635 but no software for the computer. Does anyone know were I can download a copy of the software
Does anyone know if the mini memory card - which apparently comes with an SD adaptor - can be reade by pocket pc drevices that have an SD slot?
This is a great phone. brilliant! but can someone please tell me if it is possible to view the times of missed/unanswered calls? the time of the missed call is not displayed.
i'm no phone anorak so can someone pls tell me if you can delete the pre-set videos and
pictures stored in multi-media. if any one
can help me pls talk in plain english, im not
thick honest just not very technical !!!!!
by the way for what my opinions worth i think its a great phone !!!!
I tried the both video and camera video record. For some reason, at around 2:10min, the record would automatically stop. I tried 5 time, each ended on it's own with different length. The longest is 2:45 min. I thought video record is unlimited. I put max record length in the setting, and I have more than enough memory. Anyone know why? Also what's the fastest way to transfer music or photos from phone to PC or PC to phone?
Have had this phone for 10 days. On the whole very pleased with it. Mine was Uk supplied on orange and did come with a usb cable and software (free) which works fine after upgrading (also free)allowing integration with outlook and backup of numbers etc. Camera is ok for outdoor use for a phone and has 8x zoom, but the flash is permanently on when selected and causes the picture to be badly lit due to a reflection issue. Video camera works better than I expected. A very versatile phone though, ringtones are incredible and the phone memory is quite adequate as you can move your ringtones, pics, videos etc to the transflash card for later use or upload/download them onto the pc. Transflash up to 256mb is available for about £30 and this should be enough for numerous photos etc.
Although it is quite heavy and bulky compared to some, it does feel very solid and robust with a very high quality feel to it. I think it is good value for money and appears built to last.
can it play back video at full screen missing out the pause,stop fast forward etc display ,,great if it does
does anyone know how to change your ringtones to mp3's it hard to work out
I had this phone for about a week but had to send it back as every time I tried to play an mp3, the phone would crash, the screen would go white and then the phone would go back to the home screen. After this, I could not start the mp3 player for about five minutes as a message came up stating application expired. Motorola UK told me that a possible solution would be to reset the clock, however, this did not do anything. I doubt this is a fault with all v635's, as no one else has complained about this.
The camera was good, however, it is not as good as the Samsung d500, as there is slight blurring around the edges, however, it is far better than the MPx220. There is a serious design fault with the phone, there is a small "lump" of silver plastic on top of the phone to help hold the back cover on, however, with the flash on this "lump" reflects some light into the lens of the camera and puts a bit of a glare in the bottom right corner of the photos. One way of preventing this is to hold the flap closed a bit.
Also, there is a bit of rubber on the top of the phone by the hinge, which was not present on the V600 and actually puts minor scratches on the front of the phone, which probably won’t bother many.
Also, you can not view your photos as thumbnails as you can on Samsung phones (at least I haven’t found a way), plus when viewing them they appear a bit distorted, but do not when transferred onto your PC. The PC Phonetools are great. Sadly, it takes forever to transfer 1 mp3 over the supplied data cable. If you want to use the picture phonebook, the photos of the people must be stored on the phones 5mb of internal memory, not on the Transflash card. The same is for mp3 ringtones. I am now debating which phone to get, the Samsung e720 or the v635.
