To Vicente,

Yeah it is perfectly normal for the menu to go a very light. Its so that you can see more of the picture on the screen! Good feature!

Hello. I have a motorola v3x vodafone unlocked Silver color. Everything works great but the camera. When I use the camera the menu goes very light. You can barely see the options and the little wheel for the camera options. Is this norma. In the video mode eveything is perfect. Please let me know.

Unless you guys do not have MMS and stuff in the US then I cant understand why your service providers cannot help you really. You need to enter their settings as they are the providers. They must have had other phones with MMS enabled etc.. and the settings are always the same except obviously from phone to hone field names and stuff may be different but it's all the same all in all.

For instance i got the regular V3 on Orange here in the UK and my MMS settings are:

Download : automatic
Expire after: 99days
Size limit: 100kb
Server Info: Orange MMS

T-mobile or whoever you are with must have something similar.


My service provider does not know how to set it up.
Any other suggestions?

I'm a big fan of Motorola V3 Razr, I saw V3i and I was very impressed. I see lots of people here say V3x is a great phone and all but also leave bad feed from their experience what is up with this?? Are you guys saying is this a good phone or it's good phone but not that good for that price....I own SE W900 and extremely happy there's nothing bad you could talk about that's V3x compair with W900.

You need to contact you service provider for that mate cos every provider uses diff settings, servers etc...... tell em what kinda phone you got abd they would give you the info you require.

I just got this phone for a few days, my previous phone is a SE T630. Overall, this is a nice phone with lots of features. Almost everything is working as expected. Below is a random set of comments:

- The entire unit is made of high quality plastic. The battery door is a little flimsy. There is a soft speaker grill (make of soft plastic) on the back of the phone, make sure you don't poke it or else it'll break.

- Phone is fast enough for menus, it is definitely way faster than the sick SE T-630.

- Battery life is short, it died within 24 hrs. I guess I spent too much time mucking around with all the functions and MP3 players. Besides, I'm only on a 3rd charge here, battey life probably improves after 5-6 charges.

- The LCD is bright and sharp. Color is superb.

- Bluetooth seems to be working alright as well, whether it is paired with my SE HBH-660 BT headset, my SE T-630 or my laptop PC. File transfer or address book entries transfer works fine.

- The phone doesn't have iTune. I believe only US version will have iTune (I'm located in HK). There is a Motorola Java MP3 player. The problem with this player is that it doesn't resume after answering to an incoming call. You need to manually resume the player. You can use the phone's built-in MP3 player (primitive) as an alternative. There is no folder to orgainze your MP3 files, it just shows you a big list of MP3 files from all folders. Very hard to find a song (you have to scroll thru' the entire list and there is no find function). If you want to use the built-in player, you do need to build a playlist in order for it to play one song after another. Also, the player will not play MP3 files over 192kbps bit rate, and the delete function is buggy (incorrectly deleted your playlist when it asks you to delete an unrecognized MP3 file). All in all, the MP3 function is marginal. Now I really wish iTune is there.

- The included headset has USB connection for music and voice call. There is no provision for using a better headphone. Sound quality is ok, definitely not hi-fi enough for me (could be the limitation of the headphone).

- Phone does attract finger prints easily, so often cleaning may be necessary.

- Camera is ok, don't expect quality like a dedicate digital camera. It's probably similar to the latest Nikia or SE phones.

- Speaker independent voice dial is not reliable, may need to spell the contact name in another way in order to get a match. Wish they put a voice recording function for the contact name in the phone book so that I'll surely get a match with voice dial.

- Phone does allow MP3 ringtone residing on the micro SD card. It also lets the MP3 ringtone comes thru' the BT headset, which is nice.

I had a total of 4 reboots of the phone out of the blue. Two cases where me making a call when the battery is low. The phone just rebooted instead of shutting down. One other case the phone rebooted during a BT transfer after extensive BT transfers were made. And one other time was after I closed the flip after answering a call. This happened after I mucked around with the MP3 player extensively. Not sure if I got a lemon with defective hardware or simply a firmware problem. I suspect it is the latter and newer firmware in the furture will likely to fix this.
