Guys end of talking.....go and read this review and you'll know what this phone really is http://www.mobile-review.com/review/motorola-v80-en.shtml......long live moto.
I used to be - and still - a samsung fan but even the latest models from samsung lakes the most important technology which is the bluetooth, so while searching for another one to replace my old n500 :( I came to this one and read several articles about it and I made my choice. I know that articles aren't enough to gudge but if you knew what and where to read you'll feel as if you've tried if yourself.
Have had this phone one day. Mine is the European issue phone. www.myworldphone.com said I was lucky to even get one especially a European market phone because they are more desirable. I asked why - the dude said they are less buggy, better software, and hardware. I have mine on Cingular service, but had to get the nationwide plan to prevent roam charges. The phone was htting all the ATT towers at 900Mhz and Cingular on the East coast runs their GSM at 800-850Mhz. SO I was gonna get hammered on roam charges. The blue-tooth is pretty awesome except you can only connect one thing at a time. I have an iPaq with I was able to get to connect to the phone modem for dialing my internet service. ALlows me to use the browser on my iPaq with the phone (look ma - no wires). The Blue-Tooth earpiece is awesome! Also works with my iPaq to let me play MP3 through it - no wires. The lights, style, camera, landscape and portrait modes are just awesome. My only beef is www.myworldphone.com forgot to put the CDROM, plug adapter, sync cable, and English manual in the box. So far I like it I just need to get everything set up. Since I have a new contract with Cingular and they shut their website down tonight - I still need to tweak my services.
its a great looking phone i have never got more complements but it turns off sometimes when i open or close the rotator and the green joystick falls off, never never gonna buy another motorola again, the manufacture refuses to send me a replacement
I bought this phone 8 weeks ago, used it for 2 weeks and noticed that the battery was going flat after 48 hours. manufacures state 150 to 250 stand by time. also the green menu selector knob has falled off cant use the pnone I sent it back for repair 5 weeks ago and i am still waiting for it to return. All i am told is we are waiting for parts. Will not purchase another Motorola phone.
Ihave recently got the phone and was let down a bit i love the design but some of the features i was expecting were not there. Most inportantly was the bluetooth i really wanted to be able to connect to other phones for pics and what not but this phone dosnt allow you to roam for anything but hands-free devices. If there is anything that can change this or im getting it wrong plz contact me i would like to say its perfect but its not without this feature.
Can someone please tell me how to make it ring longer than 2 rings?? Please it's driving me nuts and I've only had it a week - it doesn't give me a chance to get it out my bag before it goes to voicemail!
hey had motorola v80 for about 3ish weeks and the green 'joystick' button has partially come away from the phone. yeah it looks good, but thats it.
does have mp3 loads a lights not a bad camera gr8 sound landscape gaming and pictures just go get one ........
my joystick hasnt come off yet :)
should I take off the plastic cover on the back of the phone wich covers the optic lance or it should stay there for protection of dust?
No verizon will not work with this phone.
It is a GSM only phone so it will work with T-Mobile, AT$T and Cingular... plus a lot of smaller GSM companies.
I'm currently using it on T-Mobile in Colorado... works great
To purchace it now check out www.myworldphone.com
