Ringtones

I'm trying to add a ringtone and its a song. I transfered it on the cell but it doesn't play the song when you add it to the personal ring tone under the person you are trying to set it for. Do I have to use a different format? Or do I need to update the phone? Or is there a way to make a general ringtone for all of the contacts?

"NO BATTERY"

My phone is giving me a "no battery" message a few seconds after power up. BUT, if I power it up and immediately start going through the menu, such as music files, it lets me. But not contacts or any of the top buttons. Anyone out there with a solution?? Sad

Internet Options...

I just purchased mine off ebay. Great deal $295 and it has "Edge." I believe its from Hong Kong.

Anyways, I have like 10 or 11 other internet profiles (or whatever the proper term is).

I cannot figure out how to make it use the cingular one as the default? I was able to make the MMS settings use cingular as default.

Should I go through and delete the other ones in there for internet so the phone has no choice but to keep connected to the MEdia Net?

Under "Data Network," I have:

3-DB-GPRS
3-DB-MMS
@1010
CSL CSD OVERSEAS
CTM
CTM MMS
ONE2FREE ZONE
PEOPLES
PEOPLES MMS
SMARTONE
SMARTONE WEB
and, of course, MEdia Net

When I select MEdia Net and then I tell it to connect, the E on the main display next to antenna ge...

screen contrast fades in and out

Bought a new A780 3 months ago from an eBay store (not an individual), but now the screen tends to wash out and then come back bright and then fade again.

Sent the phone to Motorla and they won't repair it because it has "...software not intended for this region..." The phone apparently was intended for use in Japan, but is fully English functional. The carrier is Cingular and the phone works fine (if you can see the screen to navigate the system!).

Any ideas on how to get this phone re-flashed or repaired???

Does this phone have GPS?

I went to the UK motorola site for this phone and they say it has GPS. But I see no claim of this on the main specs page on phonescoop.com. Can anyone confirm that it does, or is there a newer version?

"Network Problem" - can't get browser to work!

Hey,

I'm really hoping someone could help me out here. I have tried every WAP setting on this forum, but I can't get my browser to work. Each time it tries to connect, an error message pops up saying "Network Problem" with the name of the site I was trying to connect to under it. I've tried it with device.home as the homepage and also with others like google.com and yahoo.com. I've also tried typing google or yahoo.com directly into the browser.

I'm currently using an AT&T plan - I've tried both ATT and Cingular settings. If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Sam

T-Mobile WAP settings and internet.

I tried searching online for a way to make my A780 use the internet through t-mobile web but have been unsuccessful.
I followed these instructions already:

I've gotten it to work with T-Mobile internet.

What you need to do is set up a new Internet Profile.

[1. Go to Settings
2. Click on Data Network
3. Under Internet Profile, hit the menu button and create a New profile.
4. Call the Profile Name it whatever you want (I called mine TZones)
5. GPRS Setting > APN: wap.voicestream.com
check the DNS Server
then put (1): 216.155.165.050
6. click Save
7. Now, open the Opera browser that your phone comes with
8. Click Menu > Setup > Profiles
9. Select the Internet profile you just created and Save it.]

But still cant br...

Can't receive sounds via mms, and how do I delete these games?

I am using Cingular, and have gotten all of the settings (thank you, eric!!!). (Almost) everything works great! I can receive pictures, etc, but I can neither receive music via mms (my v551 did just fine), nor can I download them from medianet, although I can connect to Medianet just fine.

Also, my phone came with some games, all in Chinese, that I do not want on my phone; they're taking up space that I can use for MP3's! Does anyone know how to delete them? I can't figure it out in PhoneTools, and they're in my main menu...

Please help! Smile

Phone auto shutdown very often and battery life is one day only

My A780 does shotdown very often. Sometimes couple of times a day without any reason. I can't turn it on right away. Have to take out battery out, put battery in, then can turn it on. The battery has to be charged daily to keep up.

It is very frustrated.

The retail shop told me that they try the phone with other carriers' SIM card without any problem I experienced. My carrier is Cingular.

Heard about this before?

Thanks
