i have this one, i bought it i week ago in sm manila here in the Philippines, its pretty awesome, little cute phone, i love the music and i have the 2gb mmc, i already installed 70 songs, :) its also cheap and affordable, i bought it for only 2190php or about 50 dollars, cheap ayt :) i recommend this if you just like basic phone coz it worth it :) dont you expect much, because HELLO its only basic, if you want more buy high end ! oki ! the only problem is the battery it only last for 2 days in moderate use, but its quite ok
can i connect his phone through a usb connector only?? or does it really needed o be a memory card reader???
mp3 500 song is okey, but just play in 5 hours bateray lack,usb can't be a modem. wap is slowy, higher font oh noh, i sell them again to my friend just $40. i buy at $59. very poor phone.no irda.Camera. hiksss.
Can any body tell me, how can I charge the W230 mobile through a computer?
I purchased it recently and comments are
1. Battery on standby i.e. no FM,Music and few minutes call is ONLY 2 DAYS- VERY BAD CONSIDERING IT HAS 960 mah BATTERY.
2. MUSIC PLAYER IS VERY BASIC - NO EQUALISER FOR TONE CONTROL-bass sound is bad with headphone-only voice and high frequency is heard well.
3. headphone is too big and does not properly fit and as such outside sound is disturbing.
4. Speaker volume at full volume is only average for a phone with music player. You cannot hear it in buses, trains etc. only in silent rooms you can hear it and that too with low sound. Defeats the purpose of player when you are on the move
5. The display brightness/contrast of screen cannot be adjusted and that drains the battery.
6.Within a music folder the songs donot automatically play serially. You have to play each song after the previous stops.only the ALL SONGS folder plays automatically.
7. Despite the so called crystal talk tech., the call quality is just above average.
8. Motorola could have cahrged few hundred rupees more and given better Music Player, louder sound, better quality headphones and better battery backup.
IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT MUSIC AND THAT TOO QUALITY SOUND, THEN DONOT GO FOR THIS PHONE.
bETTER BUY SOMETHING IN THE RS.4000-6000 RANGE FROM SOME OTHER BRAND LIKE SONY ERICCSON, NOKIA ETC.
does w230 has a security lock code?! to the messages and other folders?! like entering your number code or etc?!
How long is the play time of the mp3 player? Can I consume all 500 songs?
motorola w230 comes up with 1.1mb internal memory. i you use driver u should have windows2000 or xp because thats what the software support only? im not sure but i think thats what the cause you the problem. another way is to insert your memory card into your adapter and insert it in your memory card reader. you should just have two folders(music & pictures) drag and drop the song s and pics you want. dont try to put mp4 or wma files format bcus it wont read. only mp3 formats guys. this is a good phone and saves a lot of money.
I purchased the phone because the advertized products seemed good value for money. major disapointment. the mp3 player can only see mp3 tracks. cannot read mp3 tags. the playlist option is the only good thing. the radio recording I's nice, but. You can only store the recordings on the phones 1.1MB onboard memory. you cannot transfer data between phone and memory card. But hay south african's it comes with a 1GB memory card. and with converter software you can store around a 1000 songs on the card! otherwise look at the motorola v975 it takes a memory card. has a build in media player with album & mp3 tag reconigtion. also it can play back video s and have a 18MB onboard memory. but no radio. I also owned a motorola v975. great phone!

That is not trure . I have one . And i can create as much folder i need under music folder. But yest it has a problem(disadvantages rather) that i can not
play selected sons as there is not any multiple select option but "play all". But if you judge it keeping the price tag in mind i think it is the best phn in the market at present .
just plan to purchase it,but little bit confuse the durability of it`s unit `coz it`s the cheapest stuff that motorola had released for this year.hope it work so good...

its not that the w230 cant read the memory cards, its just that you have to use your memory card adapter to load music in it. u just create a folder; you can name it "MUSIC" or "PICTURES" or whatever and then drag 'n drop all the music you want to the folder you created... when you put back your memory card in your phone you will most definately see and play all the music you have put in. it is really as simple as that. Y'all can do it and see if it happens
I bought the w230 after i fell in love with.. it is the cutest gadget i've ever owned in my whole entire life. i love Motorola phones with my whole heart. but honestly now the w230 has caused me a lot of inconvenience.. Good people, let me tell y'all something.. playing music on a phone should be as simple as abc.. but with the w230 it's the most difficult thing on this planet... I am very very very dissapointend it you Motorola. I trully am. You guys have created a good looking phone but what good is it if it so difficult to use it... not all of us know how to install drivers and all that and yet y'all put us through the troubling of installing things in our phones before we can use them.. i honestly dont know what to do anymore... a lot of people are complaining about this phone.
I jst bought the phone 4 days ago and i must say it's the cutest gadget i've ever owned.. i m loving it's sound quality and the chrystal clear speaker...However i have a few complaints about this cutie.. I have owned 5 Motorola Phones in my life and i have to say I have never been inconvenienced by a cellphone like i have been with the W230. I cant play music on it because my computer cannot see it.. i have two memory cards both loaded with music but when i put the memory card in the phone, i cannot see all the music... and things like my messages and pictures are not secured since it doesnt have lock application. the only thing it can lock is the keypad. i was very dissapointed in it bt i still love it whole heartedly.
can u tell me can i use 2gb m card in it ,,every thing iz better than best,,tell me abt battery back up
