PC Remote options?
Jul 6, 2006, 3:31 PM
in the Article: Review: Motorola Q forum

I just discovered how to use PC remote via bluetooth for controlling power point, media player, and even the mouse. It's friggin' sweet, but I was wondering if anybody knew how to get keyboard entry through the application? Is there any way to customize the bluetooth PC remote interface?

Will MPT 2.0 work for bluetooth? I thought it didn't. :?

OK I went through the setup process and it paired fine, Phone even says it's connected, but when I start MPT it just says Initializing and won't read anything from the phone. Anyone with a similar problem finally get it to work? Any Help?

How did you get yours to work? Mine just says connection time out. Can you list all your settings?

HOW ABOUT GETTING TO KNOW YOUR PHONE?!?!
Aug 12, 2004, 1:50 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

Well, I'm amazed at how many times the same question has been asked...and asked...and asked... When I got my phone, I spent the first couple days familiarizing myself with all the menu screens and option settings. If I didn't understand something, then I looked at the manual. If I still didn't get something, THEN I asked on this forum. For all the newbies, how about spending some quality time with your new moto and check out the options, settings, ...

Re: What genius can figure out this issue with ALARMS??? (more)
Aug 12, 2004, 1:04 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

Yes, the alarms setting for ring style refers only to calendar alarms, not the "Alarm Clock". You set the type of sound for alarm clock. There is no option in the datebook (calendar).

NE2 Start over when you buy a new phone anywhere?
Aug 12, 2004, 1:00 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

Still not clear, ok. Let me try again. I want to KEEP my V710. 1. I got my first phone from VZW, signed up for ne2. 2. It's 2 years later, but instead of using my ne2 credit at VZW, I got the V710 at RS without it. 3. Is my ne2 (offered by VZW ONLY) still good 6 months from now, Since I didn't get it using my offer through VZW? In other words, Does NE2 automatically start over when ...

Did you read my question?
Aug 12, 2004, 10:59 AM
in the Motorola V710 forum

Not sure what question you're answering. Maybe I didn't phrase my question right. Since I haven't used my ne2 credit, is it still valid if I purchase a phone in a few months at VZW? That's what I was asking. In other words, is it still valid or do I have to wait another 2 years to regain it?

Re: RINGER STYLE question
Aug 12, 2004, 10:53 AM
in the Motorola V710 forum

The other answer is confusing. Here it is. Get this...you can tell your phone what you want it to do! :o If you have the style on vibrate, and you go to the vibrate style detail, there is an option for Ringer ID's. By default, it is set to off when in vibrate mode. You can turn it on if you would like it to use the caller's ring, but most people don't. (By default, it ...

Re: Can somone PLEASE explain ring 'style' Vs. the volume button control when phone open? (more)
Aug 12, 2004, 10:37 AM
in the Motorola V710 forum

When you change the volume while the phone is open, it changes the ringer volume for your current style. That way, you can save all your other settings and just tweak the volume "on the fly" if you walk into a loud or quiet place. :wink: I think it's rather convenient, but if it's so easy to do, I don't see a need for the soft setting, unless you want different rings. Hope that clears it up.

Does buying the V710 @ RS void my NE2?
Aug 12, 2004, 10:27 AM
in the Motorola V710 forum

I was eligible to receive my ne2 credit, but decided to get the phone early @ RS. As I understand it, it only applies if you buy from VZW. Does that mean I can still use my ne2 credit, say in 5 or 6 mos on a better phone? Or do I have to wait 2 yrs from now? Someone who knows please reply. Thanks

Setup Your Phonebook
Aug 11, 2004, 5:05 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

All you have to do is sort your phone book differently. While in your phonebook, press the menu key, scroll down to the last option: setup If you sort by name and select view by primary, it lists each name once with the primary number, and you can switch to another number by pressing left and right, like other phones.

What's the firmware version?!

I posted this earlier, but what's the firmware version on your phone?

Can Anyone Confirm Same Firmware on VZW phones?
Aug 11, 2004, 8:34 AM
in the Motorola V710 forum

Just to quell all the rumors, can anyone confirm that the firmware is the same as RS phones? Go to menu > Phone Info > Other Info > S/W Version. I'm sure many are waiting to hear. Thanks

Re: Phone Banner
Aug 10, 2004, 4:55 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

My LG did the same ever since I got it over 2 yrs ago. I think verizon programs it into their phones. It's convenient when you're on the ext network or roaming, but I wish it would stay on the banner when you're on the reg VZW network. :?

Re: Motorola's notoriously sloow firmware
Aug 10, 2004, 4:45 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

This is the first moto I've had since the startac, but I can say I did notice the lag in the software. From the time you press a command on the screen, there's almost a full second delay for it to move sometimes. And when you're scrolling through pictures too fast, the phone just freezes and resets. :roll: This confuses me because the phone has 10mb of memory. Wonder if there's a way to increase how ...

Re: RS return policy
Aug 10, 2004, 1:11 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

The way I understand it, yes you have 30 days to return/refund any PRODUCT at RS, but in order to cancel any changes made to your CONTRACT with VZW, or to cancel your contract if you're a new VZW customer, you must go back within 15 days. For example, if I want to take advantage of my ne2 eligibility, I would have to return the phone w/in 15 days at RS and then I would be re-eligible for ne2 at ...

Still nothing from Amazon
Aug 9, 2004, 2:40 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

I ordered from Amazon, Buy.com, and Chumbo on 8/4. Chumbo order is tracking and should be here today. Amazon still says Oct, Buy.com still says sent to whse. I think location has something to do with it. I'm in TX. I know NY people get it pretty quick. Good Luck

Re: DUST UNDER LENS
Aug 8, 2004, 10:18 AM
in the Motorola V710 forum

I thought I had some too, but I cleaned the lens with a soft q-tip and all was well again. At first, it just moved the dust around, but just breathe a little warm air on the lens and then swab it. The moisture helps the dust cling to the cotton. Maybe it's just a stubborn dust particle on the outside.

Chumbo ahead in the TF card race!
Aug 7, 2004, 2:19 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

Well, of the 3 orders I placed (Amazon, Buy, Chumbo) for a TF card on Aug 4, I checked today and Chumbo has already shipped. Buy says sent to warehouse and Amazon says expected date Oct. Looks like Chumbo's gonna win this one. Good luck everyone else! :D

in the Motorola V710 forum

Well I've placed an order with Amazon, Buy.com, and Chumbo. All on Aug 4th. Buy and Chumbo still say sent to warehouse. Amazon still says not released - estimated October. I'm hoping I get one in and I can cancel the others. If not I should have a couple to sell. We'll see which one gets here first. :?

Anyone else's phone randomly restart?

in the Motorola V710 forum

This is kinda weird. It's happened about 3 times since I've had the phone. I'm in the recent calls list or the phonebook and the screen shuts off for about 1 sec than comes back frozen for 1 second then asks me for my lock code when it finally comes back. I turned off the autolock so I won't have to do that but I still want to know why it crashes. Anyone else have this bug? I hope it's ...

Re: SD Reader, best place to get

Yeah I ordered the reader from officemax.com They ship quick, and after printing out $10 rebate form, it'll come out to $1.98 + $5.00 S/H I tried to get it in-store but there was no instant rebate. I guess it's only online. Still $6.98 is much better than $29.99 Make sure to get SD/MMC version

Re: If you hated the way the Promo was handled. Do something about it
Aug 5, 2004, 10:41 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

V710 said: According to Motorola, the phone was officially released. If Verizon stores are still holding them back, then yell at the Verizon stores for ruining the competition for you. Radio Shack did us a favor by releasing the phone a few weeks early (both retailer and consumer benefit), and Motorola realized that probably about 710 people already have their phones, so they launched the promo. The point is to reward people who bought them first, if you don't have ...

Re: the most important that the v710 should have !!!
Aug 5, 2004, 8:40 PM
in the Motorola V710 forum

Yes, I did the same. Most screens on the V710 are customizable. You just have to play around with each screen. That's one of the things I like about it - every phone can be a little different according to your preference. Yet another reason I'm happy with my purchase. :D

I got the phone, love it, look forward to updates, be nice if I got the free headset, but I'm not gonna cry about it. RS buyers took the risk of getting a higher price and an inferior phone. All that's gonna be fixed soon enough. I'm happy with my decision to get it early. As for the comment about RS, well here's just some trivia in response to that: "RadioShack up on earnings; raises 2004 outlook 11:51 AM ...

I paid $319.00 + tax at RS, but will end up paying $149 after credit was applied to my account and I receive the MIR. Again, RS does not honor NE2, it's a Verizon promotion, not RS. Yes, how did you get them to give you a credit? Any special words that convinced them? ...

Does the $18 instant rebate show at the register? I went in to grab one and the price was $29.99 and the sales rep didn't know of any instant rebates. He could have just rang it up to see, but I was getting irritated and left. (I already got the $10 rebate form off the website)

Amazon shipping TF cards?

Re: Do I smell a lawsuit?

in the Motorola V710 forum

A lawsuit over a free offer? I doubt it. The whole thing is just a promotion to sell more phones. We'll be lucky if the whole thing isn't cancelled because RS released the phones early, as I understand it, "without Verizon Wireless authorization." Read the fine print... 8O "If, for any reason, this promotion is not capable of running as planned, including without limitation, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, ...
