Another GoPhone

in the Article: FCC Outs Rugged Motorola WX450 for AT&T forum

Definitely another GoPhone. Highly doubtful anyone would sign a 2 year contract for this phone. Low end specs.

Why would CellOne do that. That is exactly why I'm considering dumping USCC. They are trying to force me to use their EasyEdge data service to transfer ringtones and pics to and from my phone. I think it's a dirty business practice. Like buying a new car with a killer sound system but in order to use it you have to pay the manufacturer on a per use basis. I refuse to follow along with the mindless masses and ...

I have tryed every piece of software that is supposed to read BREW cellphones but nothing will read my V810's filesystem. BitPim doesn't work, QPST's filesystem reader won't work. It says either my phone doesn't have an embedded filesystem or it is hiddem. I can get most of the features on PST to work, but PST has no filesystem reader. P2KPST say's my files system is in an invalid format. P2K Manager won't recognise my phone at all. BrewSky8900 ...

If this is they case that you make. Then why even bother offering a dataservice. If the company's only concern is reliable cell phone service. Why doesn't USCC request that all the cellphone manufacturers remove all the features so the phone is just that, a cellphone. How long do ya think USCC would be in business if they just sold stripped down phones without any features. NOT LONG! PEOPLE ARE ATTRACTED TO ELECTRONICS WITH FEATURES. I guarentee that ...

V878 Flex?
Nov 12, 2005, 7:09 PM
in the Motorola forum

I have a V810 CDMA which is the twin to the V878 GSM. What I need to know, is it possible to Flex the software from the V878 into the V810. I know the firmware will not work because of the different chipset inside the phone. But shouldn't it be possible for the software to work. If so can someone post a english flex file for the V878. The reason I want to try this is because the V878 ...

V265, V266, V276 Flash/Flex

in the Motorola forum

Anyone have the latest Flash(firmware) and Flex(software) for either of these phones. I prefer the V266 US Cellular firmware and software. I would also accept a Superfile(monster file) but I will accept one from other carrier. I can make changes to make work with US Cellular. Thanks for any help on this. If you don't have the file please post a link to it. Thanks.

V266 or V265 Flex/Flash

in the Motorola V265 / V266 / V276 forum

So anyone here have the flex(software) and flash(firmware) files from a V265,V266,V276. I prefer V266 US Cellular. But will accept V265. The files can be the stock flex/flash files or a Superfile(monster file). I prefer US Cellular carrier but Verizon and Movistar would be fine. Thanks to anyone who can provide the files or at least a link to the files.

Why would ringtone transfer via USB cable have anyting to do with USCC network settings? I'm not that stupid and I've heard that response before. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the CSR's are responsible for this type of feature being removed. If my phone has the ability to tranfer my phonebook contacts, my calender schedule, and even SMS, MMS between my computor and phone via USB cable, then I know it also has the ability to ...

Besides that, he is a closet lesbian :lol: Now that's funny. Thanks I need to lighten up a bit. If someone can tell me the right programs to use with this V810 to enable the ringtone and image tranfer I will stay with USCC. I just have no use for EE.

Please educate me. I've tried just about every piece of software that I can find online and none of them can read my phones filesystem. It's either hiddem or has been encrypted. I can flash my phone with PST but I still cannot enable the mutimedia feature. I cannot get anything to read the SEEMs im my phone.

I'm slowly digging up the truth on this situation. It seem to all point in one direction, Qualcomm. Their proprietary chips and their proprietary BREW. But Motorola isn't totally innocent in this matter, neither is USCC, they tell Motorola what to put in the software of each phone. USCC determines which phone have certain features and Motorola obeys. I guess this what you'd call losing the battle as a customer. All the companies involved are in this togather. How ...

I've tried every peice of software out there to read the filesystem of this Brew phone and nothing will read it. Not PST, QPST, or BitPim. I've tried everthing, tell me how the filesystem is, what comes after /"root" on the V810. I'll make a deal with ya if you can tell me how to get into the filesystem of the V810 then I will continue to use USCC. I just want the tranfer feature to work like Motorola ...

Whatever! Flame away, I still consider my complaint a valid one. Maybe you reps should try listening to your customers more instead of trying to discredit them whenever they have a legitamate complaint.

Someone should complain about bluetooth. I mean why bother putting bluetooth enabled phones into your line-up, if all the tranfer features are stripped out so the only feature of the bluetooth is headset connection. Another attempt to restrain image and ringtone transfers to force people to use EE. I must be pissing off all the USCC rep here cause I'm revealing there DIRTY LITTLE COMPANY SECRET. Oh well I guess it's like shouting at the deaf.

No, it not about the newest, shinyest, or coolest. It's about features being removed to force people to use EE. I like my V810, but after being stripped of ringtone and image tranfer via USB cable, it isn't any better of a phone than my old StarTac was. My V810 is like light years ahead of the old StarTac, but it's just basically only a phone with all the good features stripped out. Now do you see what I'm ...

It's not the network that I have a problem with. I think the CDMA is working great even though GSM will begin to overtake CDMA in 5-10 years. The problem I have is a company stripping their phones of features in an attempt to force people to use EE. It all comes down to the features that are supposed to be there but have been removed once again to force poeple to use EE data service. That is my ...

Why do you call me an idiot. Cause I don't want to waste money on a service I don't need like EE. I shouldn't have to pay USCC to get pics from my camera phone or to transfer home made ringtones to my phone via USB cable. Please don't insult my intellegence.

Giftbuddy, already tried USB cable. Doesn't work at all for rintone and images, that feature has been removed. All I can do with USB cable is sync contacts and calender with my computor, big wooptydo. I spent $50 on useless mPT and a cable, just to do that. What a waste. For what, so USCC can force me to use EE. See my gripe here?

Yes GSM is lacking in some places, but within the next 5-10 years I'd say it will be more prevailant. But the network isn't my gripe, the CDMA works great. My gripe is the removing of features that should be on our phones. Please don't defend USCC by claiming they don't do this practice. It's rediculous to remove ringtone and image tranfer via USB cable or bluetooth, just in an attempt to force customers to use EE. Especially when ...

GOODBYE USCC!

in the U.S. Cellular forum

HELLO CELLULARONE! Why am I leaving you ask? Cause all of USCC's cellphones are locked down featureless P.O.S. And why do I say that? Cause USCC's underhanded business practice of locking out or completely removing features on cellphones in an attempt to force people to use EasyEdge. What features am I talking about? Features like the tranfer of ringtones and images via USB cable or Bluetooth. Why even bother having a camera phone if I cannot get the ...

Yeah, stop locking out features on phones in an attempt to force people to use EasyEdge data service. Don't claim that USCC doesn't use this scheme, cause I know for a fact they do lock out features people would like to use on their phones. I am a USCC customer (one of many who are pissed cause the features that are supposed to be on their phone has either been removed or locked out). People should have the right ...

WOW, the Bluetooth transfer feature is enabled. That's awesome, especially since US Cellular offers phones with Bluetooth, but they disable the OBEX so a person cannot transfer between computor or from another cellphone. The only Bluetooth feature USCC allows is headset connection. Why even bother offering BT if all the good features are disabled. Well looks like USCC just lost another customer, as soon as my contract is up, I'll be walking thru the local CellularOne's doors. Anyone interested in ...

Question about CellularOne?

I'm currently a US Cellular customer, I own a phone that according to Motorola should have the ability to transfer ringtones and images via usb cable between my pc and my phone. USCC locked out that feature to force me to use their EasyEdge data service to be able to get my own created ringtones. Needless to say I won't pay them to use my own created rintones. So now I'm considering jumping ship and swimming on over to ...
