Motorola a630 with MyFaves?


I've heard some stories about people setting up unlocked phones with MyFaves, but I have a MyFaves RAZR right now and since im a texting addict its not really convenient especially with the horrible iTAP. Since the MyFaves is already set up through my T-Mobile online account, will the selected numbers still be free when I call using the A630?

"How To" for converting your T-Mobile A630 to a FULL Working Cingular Version!

Hello everyone. After searching for answers on how to do this for almost a week I finally got it.


There is no need to edit any "seems", or change and HEX values. It's very straight forward.

All the menus are cingualr, the startup screen is the orange splat on the outter and inner lcd. It's just like a cingular version.

Here is my post on about it. It's under another one of my alaises, but you can still get a hold of me at like it's listed in this thread.

aol msg. & txt msg. I got reamed

Evil or Very Mad

Wow, I just found out that my first month with tmobile will be costing me around $170+ for the month.
I am getting s#$%^% with text messaging.
Aol messenger is definately not part of tzones unlimited. Each and every one of those messages is a text message, and if you go over your alloted text plan it's five cents for each message there after.
I was signed up to the 300 mess. plan, and did something like over 1100 msgs, all on aol mssngr.
They are charging me $59.00 just for text messages alone Evil or Very Mad, and will not reduce the cost or anything.
This tmobile rep I spoke with was very nice, and sympathetic, but that doesn't help my bill. She took memos of what I called for.
What really burns me is that When I had origina...

Cingular & A630...What went wrong???

Was there ever an explanation as to why Cingular released on a small amount of A630 phones and with NO fanfare? Also why did they cancel on it? Was it a contract problem? I'd love to know why...

Can someone answer a few questions about the A630?

Hello, I have had the Nokia 6800 for awhile and just recently i took out the battery and sim to test phones (i am a cell phone seller) And when i put it all back in it wouldnt turn on. So i lost all my info in there if anyone got any idea on what happened there id appreciate knowing. The loss of that phone brings me to the A630 ive like the look of it for along time since it was put out and the fact the screens inside it helps alot to. I see phone scoops description and what they think this phone has inside and what you all think it does to but the fact is most people dont know enough about phone to really know if something does ordoes not have something. So i will leave it up to popular opinion. Here are my questions:

Does this camera ha...

6820, 3300 or A630

I know I asked about the Treo 600 before and realized I don't need a pda. I need a phone with a keyboard. So I've looked at my options and these are my choices but I'd like some insight on which is better. If anyone would share their opinions I'd be thankful!

Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had my A630 for over 2 months now. I absolutely love it. Here's the problem. My phone book on the sim card from my old nextel was unable to be transferred to my new t-mobile phone. OK. I entered every single number manually. With a little help from the T-mobile website which you can upload numbers. I entered numbers into the phone as follows. for example: adam's home went under adam's home number. (easy right) wrong...) When I add adam's cell number under his original entry it will only save it on the phone itself and not the sim card. I only found this out today while at my local T-mobile store. Here lies my next problem my phone is now broken. the inside screen doesn't work I can no longer view anything on it. The phone still di...

A630 replacement?

Any idea if there is an A630 replacement in the works. It's a great phone and I would hate to go back to a `standard' phone without a QWERTY pad and I wouldn't want to carry a bulky Palm, BB or WinOS phone. I would just like to see some improvements in the software apps and maybe more memory for text messages.

First is, why is the on and offline lists not match the computer?...For example, one of my buddies that I know are not online show up on my phone buddy list under the catagory "online."
Second, is the buddy list really pulled from a random group of buddies off my computer buddy list?
