piece of junk - lots of problems

my gf has this phone and she got it thru - the first phone she got would not connect to the internet at all, so she had to get a new one from letstalk. they only have a 30-day warranty - after that, you're on you're own with the manufacturer.

now it's been 3 months and the replacement phone is really having problems:

*the phone won't charge using the wall charger anymore

*when you use the car charger, it will only charge to one bar and then die after 5 minutes

*it receives text messages and calls from cingular DAYS later (so it's obviously not communcating with the network properly)

*the alarm clock will stay on even if you turn it off

*drops calls at an amazing rate. my nokia (on the same network, in the same...

Volume getting worse on phone...

I've had this phone since January, and within the past two weeks, I've noticed that the volume of the incoming caller's voice has gotten significantly worse over a short period of time (where occassionally, I am forced to put them on speaker just to hear them).

Is there anything that I can do to improve upon this? I have gone the ultra stupid route and confirmed that the volume is maxed, so it's not something quite that mundane...

Also, has anybody else experienced this?

Startup/Shutown weird sound

Ok, let me see if I can explain this correctly... When I'm shutting down my phone, you know it does the normal diddlydiddlydiddlydiddly. But in the middle of that, it'll make this loud kinda bid-ilee-beep (KINDA like the low battery noise). And when I start it up, it does the same thing. Everything else seems to be working ok, but it just started doing this last night. Anyone have any ideas?

V557 initial impressions

I've had the v557 for about a week now and I am fairly satisfied. I had the v551 and v400 before this so I have seen all of the improvements. As someone mentioned, the loud BLEEP sound when pressing the outside buttons with the flip closed are now gone!! One negative is that the vibration is weaker on this model. Several other people on the Howard Forums have reported the same issue. Earpiece volume is satisfactory, but even louder would be better for noisy situations. There is now an option to search for a name in your phonebook by typing in more than one letter then hitting find, instead of only getting to the first letter then having to scroll down. It also has a "Software Update" option for those interested. Still a wait-and-see ...

what is a good headset for this phone?

right now my gf is using a standard 2.5mm headset from motorola - the sound quality is AWFUL. i can never understand what she is saying - it sounds like she is talking underwater!

i have heard the quality is bad for some of the moto headsets using a 2.5mm jack - is there a better one or do i have to get her a bluetooth piece for good sound quality?

anyone else had this problem with the 2.5mm jack - bad voice quality??

Or does anyone know of where you can download standard motorola ringtones?

PTT capabilities???

I recently LOST my MPx220 which really sucks because I found out that the insurance that I have been paying for does not cover this phone. To top it all off this was a Euro Black version of the phone so when I gave the imei number to the Cing rep he never bothered to tell me that it came up as an unknown model. So anyway, Insurance says that since I have paid they will honor my claim with a V551 not the Mpx220. My question being that PTT is listed under features and I have heard that Cing is going to launch in in late November maybe? Will this phone be capable or will I have to beg them for a NEW phone that is compatible?
