In fact, the real cool thing about this phone is the qwerty keyboard, wich is hidden under that big display... C'mon now, it's a phone, you don't need any other little stuff... for that, buy a PDA , for God's sake.... !
who cares about calculators;buy one!
who cares about alarm clock, an alarm clock on a cell phone will never amount to the annoying beeping sound of the average alarm clock.
and picture ID?? who cares!!!!! you know who's calling but their name which shows up when you're receiving the call, why the hell do you need their picture??
you people want SO much in a cell phone, it's supposed to be a cell phone, not a damn can-do-everything-robot.
shit phone dont buy it... camera sucks.. cant bluetooth.. doesnt have video capabilities. and you CANT use any mp3's as ringtones.. anyone who buys this phone about 400 bucks is a wanker

The alarm clock is $3.00 but that is just a one time fee. I haven't had any trouble removing the battery from the phone. Perhaps you're doing it wrong.
I got the phone begining of this year. Its definatly great for attention seeking. It has got a calculator and a stop watch. the calculator is in the bigpond catalogue. It need to be turned off sometimes like any computer because it freezes. sometimes it turns itself off the turns on again and all the memory is gone. but if you wait a while it comes back. I love the phone but It isnt worth 798 the camera sucks no bluetooth video camera etc. Its very strong=] it survives balcony falls.
i forgot to mention in my previous post, the phone is also lacking the basic calculator, and the battery is very very difficult to remove from the back.
there is no stopwatch either.
firstly, a credit to the phone. it looks awsome when you're walking down the street with it in toe. It certainly draws attention, after all, those who stare don't know what's really under the hood of the motorola hiptop.
from a personal opinion, i think this phone is seriously overpriced. the cheapest i've seen it is around $559.
t-mobile has missed out alot on this phone, although the internet is prompt and the menu is snazzy, there is no alarm (which may i add, is on of the VERY basic features of a phone). The camera is quite shotty for this day and age. 1.3mp but it doesn't seem it. The pictures never seem to focus well, even when the focussing function is used. There is no video camera, so you can't watch videos either. When using the camera, there are no affects, it is very very basic.
there is therefore, no video calling.
the music on this phone is quite good. the quality is nice.
now, back to the overpriced issue.
when we think of general phones and what we could get for 6-700 dollars, you would think the phone would have more than just mms, sms, internet, notebook, one game, a very basic camera, calender, qwerty keyboard, average screen and a nice, hip look.
generally the bells and whistles on a phone of this price and stature are much more profound, its almost automatic to think that a phone worth such a price would atleast have a 2mp camera, or video. let alone an alarm clock!
for summary, its a cool phone, it looks cool, but the features really aren't up to scratch, you can certainly get more bang for your buck elsewhere.
motorola took a step downwards with this phone but people buy it because of the plans available; which generally include free messaging, calling and internet can compensate, providing a cool insentive for the social teen. the other motive for buying is because this phone is just so cool. it takes you under a spell when you hold it and instantly makes he owner look like a member of the popular crew.
You can use mp3 files as your ringtones, they have to be 100kb or less in size however. Just put them onto your memory card and go from there. Unsure if you need to make a specific folder or not for them, however.
nate, 05 Nov 2008how do you use photo caller id and how do you use songs for your ringtones do you need interne... moreYou can't have photo calling unfortunately.
You can't use MP3's from your computer or whatever as ringtones, you have to download it from your service provider, bigpond or whatever. The ringtones are only partial songs, about 30 seconds, but it's a one time fee and without a memory card there is room for about 11 downloaded ringtones, and you can delete them if you want, however if you want the song back you have to re-download it and pay the fee again.

I used to have a Hiptop3, Though it ... moreThere is a way to reset it. You have to take it to a Telstra Shop, or a licensed retailer and have them send it away on warranty repairs. It's really the only way, and it'll cost ya.
I have a HipTop Slide too, and it's what I had to do when I gave it to my sister with a new plan.
I have had a sidekick 3 and now have a slide. Honestly, the phone over the years hasn't improved. All that's gone on is a few name changes and colors. You still canot view videos, download, or load some pages over the internet. Its still great IF you are strictly a messaging addict.
