Safely Remove Hardware???

My wife and I both have new ZINE's and I am having all kinds of problems getting them to interface smoothly with my PC. The most irritating is that I'm able to plug each one in, download the pictures no problem, but I do not get a 'remove hardware' icon in the quick launch bar. This problem is typical on BOTH phones. I've simply resorted to shutting the computer down and then unplugging the phone, hoping this doesn't screw them up.

Does anyone have any guesses where I might be going wrong?
I have the same problem. I looked all over the place for that little icon, and couldn't find it. Finally, I just figured I'd go for it and unplug the device without shutting anything down. All my pictures were safely saved on the computer, and there w...

Sorry about the battery door, but you do get used to it.

Shame the site got closed, I would have liked to say we will do better next time.

WiFi How Too?

So I got my new phone took awhile to get my preexisting MyFaves to work. Support people had to change the names and re-sync. Then they finally loaded and all I had to do was change the names back.

Now the WiFi!

It picks up my home signal just great! But, how do I access the internet without it costing me. Can this be done? On one of the reviews here someone else stated they had done it. Also can you download your pictures to your home computer over the WiFi. I had to tell the salesperson that it is supposedly possible. He thought the WiFi was only for Web to Go.

It seems you've gotten pretty far in the process, but for those that haven't, I'll explain the whole thing here.

Assuming you haven't rearranged your menus, go to Settings => 1. Wi-Fi => Wi-Fi Power On.

After Wi-Fi has been turned on, go Back to...

Flash player

Is there any way to get flash player on the ZINE?

Without it, for me at least, I can only watch youtube, and there are way more sites than youtube that I would rather watch.

Thanks for any help!

ZN5 Extra Capacity Battery

Anyone know if ZN5 can take the Motorola BX80 Extra Capacity Battery? At present, it takes the BX50. RAZR2 V8 also takes BX50 and BX80 with larger capacity door.

I'm quite sure you can but if it needs a bigger battery door how will it fit inside the Zine without a extended battery door they dont make? Thats the only problem I see.. I've done with nokias and it does not mess up phone but you wont have a back do...

Sweet camera same old slow Motorola OS.
plus it's only on EDGE. How friggin long is it going to take to send a picture message with a photo from a 5mp camera without 3G?

That would have been great in ... 2007

For unknown reasons, T-mobile seems to be following the business strategies of Motorola -- a company whose cellphone division is failing miserably. The zn5 is cool spec wise ... if it came out 2yrs ago and now is really late to the megapixel party.
But I digress. I'm curious why T-mobile decided to wait until almost 2009 to realise that it was important to add some new technology like advanced camera phones and touch-based phones to their pathetic moto-rizr clone line-up. To make things even better, most of their new phones don't even support their 3g frequency of 1700. Since that's the case, why did not use the nokia n73, SE k800, or samsung d900 to fight back in 2007 when they were being assulted by AT&T and their iphone. They could have...
motorola, and tmobile aside......how many phones do at&t, verizon and sprint have that are 5 megapixel cameraphones are being sold by the respective carriers? and im not talking unlocked phones or Europhones....in your local at&t how many have 5mp cam...

no 3g?

I mean, camera's and video on a phone to me is not a major issue, but why no 1700AWS, that is even a bigger issue the frame rates and resolution on the camera.
There is no 3g. This is a camera phone I reckon.
"I mean, camera's and video on a phone to me is not a major issue"

Then this may not be the right phone for you, this is targeted to be a CAMERA phone, not a high speed web phone.

Wow, check out the video abilities

"The ZN5 has a five megapixel Kodak camera with autofocus, xenon flash and panorama shooting mode" and it can capture 176 x 144 videos at 15 frames per second! How lame is that?! Seriously, old cheap phones shoot videos that good.
that *well*
get a camcorder then.

why would you even want to film with a phone anyway?
