i dont't think you can purchase the TV show off iTunes and play it on the SLVLR. BUT you can use a show you have downloaded onto you computer and use imTOO 3gp converter to convert the TV show and store it on your phone.
Re: SOLUTION TO MOST OF EVERYONE'S MPT PROBLEMS!
Yeah, I just upgraded to MPT 4.0 as well through the link provided by JonSpotts in the previous posts. Now I can see the SLVR displayed instead of the RAZR and I didn't have to manually select the SLVR as a V3 :D I highly recommend the link provided by JonSpotts because that version also has the liveupdates to keep your MPT updated.
SOLUTION TO MOST OF EVERYONE'S MPT PROBLEMS!
After reading all of your problems/questions/concerns, I realized that I have had similar problems and may have the solution to help you guys out. First, let me explain the USB settings on the SLVR L7. When you go into MENU - SETTINGS - CONNECTION - USB SETTINGS, you will notice there are two options: MEMORY CARD (which is usually the default option), and DATA/FAX CONNECTION. When using iTunes make sure the phone is set to the MEMORY CARD ...
Re: Mobile Phone Tools
I did not update my version of Mobile Phone Tools. Like eddiearias, I also just selected the phone as the V3, so the image of the RAZR comes up but the program functions perfectly for the SLVR as well.
Re: Earpiece volume?
I don't think that the RAZR volume is better, I think that both the SLVR and RAZR are exactly the same. I have the SLVR and other members in my family have both RAZR's, and I see no difference. So if you didn't like the RAZR volume then its the exact same as the SLVR. And yes, it does seem sort of low to me as well but nothing unbearable
Re: MMode on the MOTO SLVR
I'm not too sure about MMode. I purchased the Cingular branded SLVR and I have MEdia Net in my options, no MMode. Hope this helps :?
Re: will MP3 player work for non-Cingular?
They say that because Cingular branded SLVR's are the only ones with iTunes loaded on the PHONE. You can't upload songs to the SLVR through iTunes if the phone doesnt have the software installed in it. So if you have an unlocked version that you might have purchased from oversea's, I don't think that you can use iTunes to transfer the songs. However, the MP3 player will work, you just have to use something else but ...
I love this phone and your right, the speakerphone is great for itunes and ringtones. But some reason when in a call the speakerphone volume is lower. I don't think that the speakerphone is crappy quality wise; the sound is clear. I just think that the volume is too low for a speakerphone when in a call. I switched over to Cingular from Nextel, and it's a drastic change after having a Nextel speakerphone. ...
Re: iTunes 6
Go into the Menu in your phone and click on CONNECTION, then click on USB SETTINGS, and make sure that it is set to MEMORY CARD. Thats the only thing I could think of because I had a similar problem. Hope this works :?
Re: This phone should be called...
I believe it will be called the SLDR once it launches in the US. Z is just it's codename for now.
Re: Camera Issues
Thank you CingCSRrep, your advice worked. :D
Re: Switching from Black RAZR V3 to SLVR L7
I have the Cingular version of the SLVR. Yes, you can upload songs that are already loaded on your PC to your phone. Once you dowload/install iTunes you simply drag the songs from the iTunes library to your phone within the software. As far as I know, there are no disadvantages to the SLVR over the black RAZR. My dad has the silver RAZR, brother has the black RAZR, and I have the SLVR. ...
The Cingular version is bronze as well.
Re: video format
I have this phone and use the ImTOO 3GP Video Converter that is specifically for mobile phones. The software is extremely easy to use, and you can get it from www.download.com. I have the full edition, but download.com only offers the free trail that encored 2 minutes of the clip. It converts any video file type to .3gp , which is the file that the SLVR and most mobile phones accept. And yes, these videos ...
I asked a Cingular representative the point of the PTT capability if it doesnt work with Cingular. He said that his best guess is that in the future Motorola/Cingular will come out with a software update to install on the phone to possibly have it work for Cingular's PTT.
Re: Can you transfer music to this phone using bluetooth?
Yes you can if you use the Motorola Phone Tools software. I use the USB cable that came with the phone, but you can also choose Bluetooth as an option. The software lets you customize your own ringtones, images, videos, and even set up a phone book.
I'm not sure if I'm the only person who has this problem, but when I use the camera on my SLVR and I snap the picture, I then click on STORE image but the image that gets stored is not the image I snapped on the camera. It seems like the image that gets stored is where the camera lens is aimed when i click on STORE. I find this rather odd and EXTREMELY annoying. Anyone ...
Re: Help help!
CingularChick, I had the same problem that you had. In order to get the few songs that didnt drag-and-drop to work, I had to convert them to AAC format by right-clicking on the specific song and clicking "Convert selected item to AAC format" (This is done in the iTunes program itself) Then just simply drag the AAC format of the song and it works. I know, this annoys me too but its the only way I've ...
Re: tools cd
you can download iTunes for your PC but it will not work if the India version of this phone does not have iTunes installed on the phone itself. You cannot (atleast from what I know) install iTunes onto the phone; the US version comes with it factory installed onto the phone.
Re: Mp3 Quality
The quality from the speakers is outstanding. When you purchase the SLVR it does come with a converter that plugs into the SLVR and has a 3.5mm headset jack at the end so you can plug in the headphones that come with it, or your own. Also, motorola has bluetooth headphones that you can use. However, i havent tried the headphones or the bluetooth headphones, but the speakers are great.
Cingular - stereo headphones
Although the phone lacks a headphone jack, the phone will come with stereo headphones and 3.5mm headset adapter. The following is what else comes with this phone when purchased through Cingular: * USB data cable * Battery * Battery door * Travel charger * Stereo headset * Pre-installed 512MB MicroSD memory card * EMU to 3.5mm ...
512MB not 5MB!
I went to the Cingular dealer today to purchase this phone. He said that the phone has built-in 5MB of memory but also comes with an additional 512MB expansion card. I don't know about you guys but I was under the impression that it only came with 5MB and you had to purchase a 512MB seperately, so this was big news to me! 8)
Re: SLVR L7 Now available on Cingular's website
Re: Stereo Bluetooth
yes, the new bluetooth headseats should definatly work with the SLVR 8)
Re: FYI-Cingular, soon...very
AlfaRomeo, don't get caught up in what a few others are saying. The SLVR is everything you can possibly want plus more. It does have a camera, but it isn't a megapixel camera. It has a video camera as well, along with iTunes, PTT, speakerphone, bluetooth, and a sleek design. It's the perfect phone. You should definatly consider buying it. :D
SLVR User Interface
Can anyone that owns this phone tell me if the SLVR has Motorola's new User Interface as seen in the link below? http://www.mobileburn.com/story.jsp ?Id=1876&source=HOMETOP
Re: Not PTT capable for Cingular
hmm..altough I don't have any credible sources to rely on, I feel like that is not true (just my 2 cents). It is pointless for motorola to make a PTT capable phone and launch it exclusively for Cingular if the PTT won't work. And even if you get an unlocked version, TMobile doesnt have the PTT capability and Nextel uses different SIM cards. So the PTT button would be pointless for any situation. I don't ...
Re: FYI-Cingular, soon
no clue towards pricing but I wouldn't be surprised if the phone sold 300 without a contract for cingular. I actually would be expecting more along the 350-399 price range but who knows.
Re: Just Received Marketing Material For The SLVR L7
thanks Me2! We appreciate the update. Can't wait for this phone to be released!
Re: Where is the keypad?!?!?!
I believe you scroll through the keys using the circular dial on the phone and hit the center button to select the key (sort of like an iPod dial). Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
Re: will the SLVR L7 work with Cingulars PTT???
Although I don't have the phone yet, my best guess would be that the SLVR will support Cingular's PTT. Considering that Cingular just launched their PTT service recently and the SLVR will be launched for Cingular, I think it's safe to say that it will work. The best thing to do is to wait out another week or two for the phone to come out and ask the Cingular representative for yourself.
Re: FYI-Cingular, soon
Eyesris, I'm guessing you are a Cingular dealer? Just out of curiosity, would you know the exact date that Cingular will receive the SLVR's? I know they will be released around the first week of February but I'm attempting to find the exact date so I can purchase this phone the day it comes out.
Re: ACTUAL RELEASE DATE!
Yes, Cingular has come out with PTT. Last I've checked it's an extra $10 a month for unlimited PTT use. This is a little pricey compared to Nextel, but I think after more people get it the price should go down within the year. As of now, there are only 2, maybe 3, Cingular phones that utilize PTT (LG and Samsung models). Hope this information helped.
Re: ACTUAL RELEASE DATE!
Yeah I know I checked out your previous post. They're decently priced too. But for those that are waiting to get it from their carrier (Cingular) it will be officially released in the US on the first week of February. If you check out Motorola's main page right now it only shows the SLVR released in Germany, Italy, UK, etc. So I'm guessing MobilePlanet either has imports or was able to get ahold of them ...
ACTUAL RELEASE DATE!
Now that the SLVR L7 is actually being advertised on Motorola's main page, I decided to give them a call. The Motorola representative that I spoke with said that the SLVR L7 will be released in the US during the first week of February. Only 2 more weeks to go! :D
Re: Voice dialing: recorded or "speaker-independent"?
My best guess would be that this feature will be similar to the RAZR, recorded. However, this is just an assumption.
Re: SLVR L7 at Cingular
I have a feeling that PTT will be enabled on this phone for Cingular. Cingular already launched its PTT service on a LG and Samsung phone. They are currently charging an additional $10 a month for unlimited PTT use. Compared to Nextel, this seems kind of pricey. :?
Re: 4th quarter?
Yes, 4th quarter is October to December. CNET says that this phone is coming out late 2005/early 2006. My best guess is that the SLVR will be out by january and MAYBE february latest. Let's keep our fingers crossed. :?
Re: any new news?
This definitely cannot be true because I received an advertisement from Cingular in the mail displaying their ROKR phone and their new LG and Samsung PTT phones.
The SLVR L7 is supposedly going to have iTunes on it and will be able to store up to 100 songs, similar to the ROKR (according to this Engadget article at least) 8) http://www.engadget.com/entry/12340003230 65935/
