SIM phone book

I bought my MotoQ9h from a family member. She bought it new. It seems to be working perfectly fine but I cannot get my contacts from my SIM.
Are there magic words I've got to say or what?
Help please! 😕

How to get the DEL key?


It was impossible for me to find how to get the DEL key on my Motorora Q9H smartphone.

The BACKSPACE is made with the key to the left of the power on switch, but, the DEL key?

Q9h no more?

Just saw that AT&T has pulled the Q9h from their site, and motorola shows the phone out of stock on their site.

Any news on a new version? I've googled, and all I see are old press releases.

I was about to but the silver Q, the most recent version, but lost the race. There are a few on ebay, but would prefer to buy new or refurb.

Long Live the Q9h

I've been with the Q9h since it came out. I've previously had Blackberries, and an IPhoney and they can't hold a candle to the Q. For the record, Windows Mobile does not suck. You just have to know that every once in awhile you have to start with a clean slate and reformat like all other windows products. I put a fresh copy of Windows Mobile 6.1 every 2 months and it runs as fast and smooth as it was new. There are so many apps out there for backing up the Q it makes it a breeze. I can guarantee when Windows Mobile 6.5 arrives some talented hacker will find a way to get it on the Q9h.

Pocket Informant on the Q9h

Anyone use Pocket Informant 8 on their Q? Has anyone tried to send a calendar or contact to their PC via bluetooth (beam). I can do this on the default calendar, but can't using PI..it gives me an error. Thanks

Silver/Grey vs Black

The silver/grey Q9h that replaced the black version has a couple of upgrades to it that make it worth buying if you're offered the choice between the two.

AT&T likes the OTA updating feature of the silver/grey phone, but IMHO this is going to remain largely useless to the typical user of the device.

A more significant upgrade is the inclusion of Crystal Talk on the silver/grey phone. Making calls one after another and comparing the black phone with the silver/grey phone, you will definitely notice the difference in call quality.

All of the silver/grey phones ship with WM 6.1, so they'll all have threaded messaging and the other minor improvements of WM 6.1

One downside: In certain lighting conditions, you will notice that the b...

Moto Q Global and low light

I love my Moto Q Global but am getting frustrated trying to see the key board in low light conditions. No problem when it's totally dark. But in between full light and no light I find the key board very difficult to see. Has anyone found a way to increase the backlight on the keyboard?

Iris Web Browser

I installed the latest version of Iris web browser today. Yawn......I'm not impressed, at least not on my Moto Q9h. Some of the issues with Iris:

Bookmarks - seems to have little control over managing bookmarks. I couldn't organize into folders my imported bookmarks in the folders I had in Opera and IE.

Navigation - I tried using the cursor. Slow and cumbersome. Returned to normal WM6 nav. It was fast but hard to see where I was. No improvement here.

Nav buttons on side - With Iris the up/down buttons did not function. Back and select did work, though.

Default browser - Altho I selected Iris to be my default browser, I could not get it to come up with the browser nav button on my device. I still...

Thoughts on iPhone, Blackberry or Motorola Q Global from experienced users!

Just looking for people who have used all three devices - personally, I am not all that impressed with Windows Mobile. Just seems unimpressive!

I mostly use the device for (outside of being a phone!) text messaging and email - would use more for managing contacts and extension of Outlook with a good UI.

For those that have used all three, which do you prefer and what do you like about each ... if you had to get one now, which device? (course, if I was going for the iPhone I would hold out for G3).

Thank you!

General Questions on Configuration

1. How do I use smaller icons in the folders? Are there themes like on the Blackberry? I already unclicked "use large icons" in home screen settings but that has no effect on the folders.
2. How do I move icons from one folder to another and change the order within a folder?
3. How do I stop this thing from pocket button pressing without having to enter a password every time I use it?
4. How do I EXIT from programs with no exit selection? (IE for example).
5. Is there a list of things I can shut off to conserve battery power?
6. How do I stop an alert during play? If I set an MP3 file to play for an alert, it plays to the end, even though I have already retrieved the message!
7. How do I reconfigure the shortcut keys? For example setti...

Where can I find WM 6.1 Update?

I want to try out the WM 6.1 for my Q9h, but I am not sure where I can get it from. Is there a free update? I am currently running WM 6.0. Thank you in advance!!!

Does the Q9H have an indicator light or not?

I was led to believe that it has an indicator light in the top right corner, but I can't find this to be the case. I bought a used Q9H from someone on Howard forums, I haven't received it yet, and I was just wondering this. I think it may be a light sensor. So, please "enlighten" me.

Availability of the Moto Q Global

I plan to move over to ATT from Verizon. I want the Moto Q Global phone but can't find it at any ATT retail store in Denver. The response I keep getting is that they haven't stocked it for more than six month. I'm prepared to order my phone online but am I buying a dated produuct? I've read every review of the Moto Q Global it and there is very little negative about it.
