differences between rizr z3 blue and z3 rose

hey guys,i just bought new blue rizr and i had rose before
so I'm a little bit confused..heres the deal
like on rizr z3 rose when you slide display down - everything is closing(for ex.:typing text and sliding down - its just erasing or when i called somebody i slide display down - call ended)
but on blue rizr its not working,may be because its stock or something?
and one more problem is primary texting as main one,is it anyway that i can change it to secondary?because i used to text for like 5 years and i dont really like this T9 or whatever you call it..

This Apple iSync PhonePlugin syncs contacts with RIZR

http://angel.net/~nic/MOTZ3.phoneplugin.zip »

Just drop it in /Library/PhonePlugins and enjoy. I'm still working on syncing calendars...
Oh, I got my RIZR from importgsm.com; they were great (and fast! ordered Monday and had it Wed AM) and I already love this phone!
Hi Nicwolff

I have downloaded your plugin and unzipped it to my User/Library/Phones folder but iSync does not recognise it?

Can you advise me at all?



Works pretty good. Have you had any luck with syncing calendars? I have programming experience, is there any way I can help you?

Hi, have you managed to get the Calendar to Sync with the Z3 yet, contacts is working ok. Thanks.
It works! Let us know when you have the rest. So cool to have people like you offering solutions. I just bough the RIZR and was about to kick myself, because ti did not work with my MacBook Pro.
Dude, you rock so hard for this it is not even funny. Now, if only we could get the calendar and the time display to work!
Hi there,

I put the plugin in the correct location (Library/PhonePlugins/), however iSync does not recognize it's new-found ability to sync with the phone.

When I try to "Add Device..." the process works, and it recognizes a device it just calls...
I found a way to get to sync calendars. Just download this new file and put it in /Library/PhonePlugins. If you have an old version of the MOTZ3 plugin you can just replace it with this one.

If you've already have your Z3 in sync, remove it, and...
I've looked in my library folder and I don't have a phone plugins folder. How exactly do I add this plugin to my Mac

AT&T/T-Mobile/Cingular phone settings

So I called AT&T to get my Medianet settings all squared away and the darned phone still wont go to my device.home homepage, nor will it send or receive a picture message. There's got to be a patch of some kind that will allow the unlocked version of this phone to work on the Cingular network. Who knows how its done? HELP MEEEEE!!!!!!!!! 😕
hey did you buy this phone unlocked? Or did you find the code? if so can i please get the code. thankyou

Do videos need to be in a certain format to be played????

After I have placed different videos on the memory card, they do not show up on the list of videos in the phones menu. Do I need to convert my videos to a certain format in order for the phone to play them???
I'm not sure. I know when you use the camera to take videos, it's in 3GP format. When you extract it to your PC, you need a 3GP player or convert it to MPEG. Haven't tried uploading videos onto the phone yet, but I think it might need to be in 3GP ...

RIZR coming to VZW????

Does any one know if the RIZR is coming to Verizon? I looked this phone up and it looks hot. I was very excited to get the SLVR CDMA version from Verizon but now i have seen this one offered by t-mobile & ill have to say it looks SWEET, per the reviews a very good phone. Anyhow if anyone knows about this release or if they are planning on it. Please let me know. Its a slider razor how awsome is that. I am not a fan of the flip phones however thats abuot all VZW has... so imagine my exictment when they announced the SLVR however this one has just got me wanting to switch providers.
How's the SLVR so far?
Yes it is coming & planned long back.
yoe, but called rokr z6m and z6tv. the exact same thing, only that the z6tv has a 1.3 mp camera, but allows you to watch live tv. its the same as the z3 not much differences other than verizon theme

How do you remane a saved picture?

i went to options.. but nothing that i could find as far as "renaming" goes..

so please, if anyone knows, please post.
I use my computer to change the name of pic files. Use the USB cable and just plug it into your computer. This should allow you to access your phone, like a SD card. Just change the file name there. Yeah, it's a lil hassle, but it works.
Go to options on the picture, and find manage, then scroll down to the end and there is rename, up to 30 characters to use

3rd Party Software

I just got a blue T- Mo RIZR I won in a contest I wanna ask any owners here if they had any success in using 3rd party software like Opera mini and Gmail. Thanks in advance!!!
Yes, opera mini works very well, but the phone doesn't seem to work with g-mail. you can change the settings on opera mini, its pretty cool version 4.0 is way better than 3. you can use it landscape or portrait mode.

MOVIES on Rizr?

I was curious if it was possible to watch a movie on the rizr? If so what programs can you use to get them compatable with your phone. I use Switch to convert my songs to Mp3 format, wasnt sure if it would work for a DVD?
Rip the dvd with any program and save it to the hard drive. then convert the video to 3gp, i use a-one 3gp video converter, its free and works pretty good.

Is it me or is there something wrong?

I'm having issues with getting the phone to connect to phone tools. I got the cable and the software, near as I can tell it's installed right. It even notices that there is "a phone" present.... Just not the RIZR. When I'm prompted to install it manually, it isn't even listed. Generic GSM doesn't work well either. If I can't get it to work, is there another way, outside of the internet, (ie. uploading and downloading files) that I can add files (music) and back up my phone?

Thanks in advance,

I am not surprised that Z3 is having this issue too.

I have had it replaced 3 times for issues like Phone turns OFF itself while talking, taking a photo, video or checking messages.

It will also reboot while just sitting idle.
I'm in the same boat as you, I'll let you know what I find out.
I had the same problem until I downloaded the latest Phone Tools update (I used the Motorola Live Update, not the automatic update MPT trys when it can't access your phone)

Using Version 4.5.1c and the RIZR is supported
I haven't had the same issues but I installed the latest software update for the phone itself. You can get the update here http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/motosupp ort/source/softwareupdateselect.asp and I haven't had any problems so far. I...
Just go through the menu until it checks for the list of phones. Then just select Razr V3. It worked for me to download address and files. Only glitch is that it added first name twice with some of my contact from Outlook. It took me a few minutes...
