V600 - Terrible battery life with bluetooth

I got a V600, and while the battery life is great with Bluetooth OFF, it is terrible when I leave Bluetooth ON. Is this normal for this phone?

I have a Sony-Ericsson T68i, and when I leave Bluetooth on all the time with that one, it hardly seems to affect battery life at all.

I like to leave it on because my car has bluetooth built in, and I don't want to have to take out my phone and turn bluetooth on and off as needed. I just want it to be there.

Well I got to try the a630 today and I must say, I LIKE IT!.

Lightweight, easy to use, lots of options, speaker phone, quad band world phone, vga camera, and flip open keypad and color screen.

The phone is a breeze to use, you can access most menu options w/o having to open the phone. Options such as ring volume, tone, caller id, speakerphone, and such. The sound quality is great and clear. The signal strength is very good. There is no external antenna but it still gets very good signal. The battery life is about 3.5-4 hrs and about a 10 day standby time. Now unlike the V400 and V600 the camera does not have the zoom feature(at least as far as I could see). One very nice feature is that you can talk on one call and type a text msg and ...

Phone software upgrade (Timeport 270c)

I bought a Timeport 270c on Ebay for my Verizon account. the phone was originally used on an Alltel network. after registering the ESN with Verizon the reception was spotty and it kept dropping calls. Verizon said the software needed to be updated from the Alltel version but they were unable to do it for me.
Motorola says it can't be done from one carrier to another.

I don't believe them!! anyone had any luck flashing the memory?

Display is useless if outside in daylight

Am unable to use phone outside in the daytime. The image is pale or totally blank. Have tried all suggestions from Motorola, when I can get a "people". AT&T will not help, they say it's Motorola's problem. Motorola will not help, it's almost like "what ya got is what ya bought, sorry"

Have tried ALL the settings for color , contrast, etc

Its difficult to believe an American company would put a product like this on the market and not be required to put "BUYER BEWARE" somewhere on the product .

v400 Ringtones, Wallpaper Problems

I have a v400 phone which was unlocked for T-Mobile service and can't download ring tones or wallpaper. My phone tells me (through T-Zones) that although I may have that capability on my device, my phone is not supported. I don't know how to download from Motorola's website either because it doesn't recognize my phone as a T-Mobile serviced phone. Any ideas on how I can get these extras? I've already had to enter all the information to get t-zones myself - what a pain this has been.

Thanks in advance!

v300 Display Problems?

I purchased the v300 from Tmobile back in April. I had to return it 3 weeks ago because the display just disappeared. No physical damage done, all I did wsa charge it over night, next morning, no display. Took it to Tmobile they troubleshooted it and determined it was defective. Called tmobile for a replacement, no problem no delays, received one quickly. Last night same thing with the new phone, no display. I took out the battery to reset it, nothing. The phone turns on, I could dial out, I just can't see the display. any suggestions? Is this a known issue? Did I get a refurb as a replacement maybe? Tmobile said that was a possibility....

I appreciate any help in advance. Thank you!
