International Phone?

Just wondering about the international phones being offered in EBay these days. They are advertised as 900/1800 or 900/1800/1900. My question is this, I want to use this model for travel to Asia. I do not want to contract with a US carrier. Can I just buy a sim card over there, stick it in and make calls without having to subscribe to a carrier?

I just want to make calls from Asia to USA. I don't need internet or SMS services, just phones calls.

Won't turn on.

I'm really confused. I turned off my phone last night, and htis morning it wouldn't turn on. So i put it on my charger - nothing. i take out the battery while its on the charger and the phone's lights come on - the blue one and the screen light up. When i put the battery back in it starts up and charges, so later i turn off the phone and now it wont turn on again. my method from the first time wont work and i cant figure out waht to do. Help me please!

Download games via the USB port?

Does anyone know how to install games from your PC using the USB port?

I installed and updated the mobile phone utility software from one of the earlier threads (Upgrade Ringtones Using USB cable - »
But when you use the software, you only get access to pictures & audio folders on the phone. Does anyone know if the phone is supposed to take jar files or sis files?

Startup help :D


Just wondering... i got the v220 about 3 weeks ago, and its the same type of phone everybody in my family has, except it has newer firmware (the Startup screen is different and it has different graphics)... anyways, when i got the phone and turned it on for the first time and it made a bubbling noise (yes, i know this is normal, im not stupid)... but now when i turn it on it is completely silent... does anybody know how to turn the startup noises back on?

Upgrade Ringtones Using USB cable

Hi everyone,

I read the review of this Motorola V220, and someone mentioned about upgrading the ringtones with a digital camera USB cable. I tried it, but the PC didn't recognize the hardware(the phone). Do I need any software to create a driver for the USB cable? How can I transfer a MIDI file to my phone?

Thanks a lot.

anyone with first-hand experience of MPT for the v220?

I've got hold of a copy of MPT from a friend in the industry to try it out, and it just won't work. The supplied drivers don't seem to work, so I've tried other v220 USB drivers and no joy. I'd gladly buy the program from Motorola directly, but I'm not going to spend money on it if it's the program that's at fault... anyone got any advice?
