The shuffle mode is also great.

ric, 19 Aug 2008Hey john, It was a nice and detailed review. thanks. Could u please tell about the battery o... moreBattery talktime is around 2.5 to 3 hours, with about 3-4 sms during the day. Somewhat disappointing considering claim by company of 9 hours, also with 910 mAH battery and small screen. The speed dial system is also unfriendly. The user manual is not supplied in the box, had to download it from website. It gives a higer SAR value than getting started guide provided in the box.There is no option of making Playlist in the Music Player, though the User manual downloaded from site mentions it. Motorola should upgrade the manual and also provide it in box. Having been a Nokia and Sony Ericsson user, I think I should have stuck to them.
i dont know why at the time i downloading music it fall and display a message as "http//bad gate away 504" i need your help in this

Thank you for your e-mail dated 20 August 2008.
The Motorola W230 does not support use as a modem for internet connectivity. You are able to use the handset to connect to WAP(Wireless Application Protocol) and browse WAP sites using the pre loaded WAP browser on the handset which requires GPRS connection

It was a nice and detailed review. thanks.
Could u please tell about the battery of the phone? I heard it needed to be charged every other day.
is there another earphone work for this phone? i want to upgrade my earphone because the free earphone sucks!..and when i try a 3.5mm to 2.5mm audio adapter only the right earphone works...
I think it's a great phone. Really simple and easy to use. The radio is good and I have no complaints about the sound quality. The screen is also nice. The only thing I hate about it is the battery life, I use the Vibrate and Ring ring style and it consumes battery a lot and to think that I'm not using the music player feature a lot but I have to charge it everyday. I was expecting the battery to last much longer since it's a music phone but it isn't but so far, that's the only complaint I got.
