Motorola V635 Details Surface

Article Comments  100+  

Dec 28, 2004, 7:49 AM   by (staff)

The FCC last week approved the Motorola V635, releasing photos and key details in the process. The previously-rumored GSM phone is an upgrade to the V620, adding a color external display, megapixel camera with LED flash, and EDGE high-speed data. Also, a user-changeable outer cover slides off to reveal a TransFlash memory card slot. According to the late-draft user manual submitted to the FCC, the TransFlash memory card can be made accessible to a PC connected via USB as a storage drive, similar to a flash-memory keychain. Like the V620, the V635 includes quad-band GSM, Bluetooth, and video capture.

I have the V635

Hey guys. I'm looking for details on this phone as I have it. I've had it for a while a now actually. It's thicker then the V600 but much lighter. I'm using this phone with TMobile without any problems. I just inserted my SIM card and turned it on no problems. The front of the screen is about 3/4 x 3/4.
Show some pics if you have it. You can not get this phone yet.

Is V635 Class 10 EDGE?

Looked through some material on the FCC web site and the description in gsmarena and saw the phone was listed as being Class 10 GPRS. Does anyone know from any material on the FCC web site if it is also Class 10 EDGE?

The only other phones that are Class 10 GPRS and Class 10 EDGE are the Nokia 6230 (only a tri-band) and the Treo 650.
Nope Class 4 or 5, i think

Carrier?

Do you think that Cingular will carry this phone? When do you think it will be released?

I imagine Cingular would want to carry this device, but fore some reason this feels like a Sprint phone to me. p...

It's a quad band GSM phone - Sprint is CDMA. Therefore this cannot be a Sprint phone. As the initial announcement mentions that the phone has EDGE, if it is ever released by a U.S. carrier, it will be Cingular, as T-Mobile is the only other U.S. GSM p...

i heard its going to be only on virgin mobile with customers that have $100 rate plans or above. also they have to live within 50 miles of tacoma washington

anyone think?

Does anyone think that it's a little weird to release an update to something that's only been on the market for a VERY short time? I mean the v620 hasn't even hit the US market, and hasn't been out very long in the places it IS in. Why upgrade it so soon? Was the 620 another v600? Is that why it hasn't hit USA? Will the 635 be any better in all reality?

It all just seems a bit strange to me, but I wouldn't doubt it if it popped up in Cingular's lineup, considering their recent additions of 2 other EDGE capable video phones.
Well the FCC only approved it now, so it will take awhile until the phone is actually released. By the way, the V620 and V600 are the same phones...
...
Hint: BETA testing results... could have been either misread or misconstrued i.e. -- send out the patch... just a thought....
The V620 was only a very minor update to the V600, adding video capture and a slightly better display. It doesn't really count as a new phone.

The V635 is an actual new model, with considerable new and upgraded hardware. The V600 was announced in J...

Very Happy I read online that they are still developing teh software for the V620. The hardware is already developed, its the software. Remember the V600 launch, when the first batch for AT&T Wireless and Cingular came out, that phone had major problem due ...

I guarantee we aren't even going to see the V620. This is a high demand phone. It has all the features of phones people want, so, just like the RAZR Razz , this will be a great addition to feature-rich high end phones. I look forward to hopefully seeing...

ever hear of munber portability?

i am gonna say that the v710 is kinda similar, minus the cellular technology(CDMA/GSM), java, and USB access to the transflash card. the only major advantage is the USB access to the transflash card, and owning a v710 w/ transflash card, i can tell y...

That's because Verizon doesn't have GSM. There's a greater selection of GSM phones than there are CDMA phones. Also GSM is BETTER! Cool

There are new CDMA phones....that Verizon takes way to long to put out.

I feel the same way. Verizon has great customer service [I have never used] and recpetion [like every provider in my area] but no decent phones. Yesterday I was exploding when ...

V6XX Series: Skeptical, very skeptical...

Sorry I have to vent on this one....

I remember the huge V600 hub-bub and too-doo that went on for months and months... I finally got one from cingular the week it came out from them, only to go through 4, yes FOUR defective phones in 6 weeks. Bad luck? Yes. True for every V600? No, but for many. But where is the V600 now? Pulled from the ATT and Cingular shelves in only a short matter of time. (I understand the same was true temporarily for the newer MPX phone too). Now there is the to-die-for RAZR, but at $400+? Give me a break.

I'm no phone expert or carrier employee, just a gadget-centric consumer and the V6XX series phones couldn't have been more of a let down. Too bad Sony Ericsson can't put their feature set in a Moto s...

Waiting for V6xx or Razr/V3 with UMTS

I have a Motorola V710 and use it to surf the web with my PDA over Verizon's 1xRTT network(i.e. Express Network/NationalAccess). The EDGE capability in the V635 will only give me slightly faster data speeds than 1xRTT (100kpbs vs 60kbps with 1xRTT) but that isn't enough to get me to switch. I'll consider switching to Cingular in August, 2005 when my Verizon contract is up to see how far they've come integrating AT&T into their company and to see if they have launched UMTS in the NYC area. For those that don't know, UMTS is the next upgrade to GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks with speeds up to 2mbps and typical speed of 300kbps. Cingular's (formerly AT&T's) upcoming UMTS network and Verizon's EVDO network will be direct competitors. Verizon will b...

I really don't think they'd re-release a phone just so it could work on the 2100 MHz band (UMTS)
...
sadly
ATT/Cingular don't have UMTS, even EDGE in NYC
I even don't believe it
go to Cingular store, pick up a Data Connect brochure to find out
...
generally speaking UMTS phones are much larger than GSM phones. It will probably be a while before any phones that resemble the RAZR will be available on a UMTS network.

TOO BAD...

Moto did not put the vastly superior display that is on the V710 & V3 on this phone. Then it would be nearly perfect! Shocked

I think the display on my V600 is far better than the display on my V3.

And also too bad it's the same crap megapixel camera they have on the 710. Plus the same cracking cheap plastic cover as the 600. Such crap.
The display is the same resolution, except its smaller. making it actually appear sharper
