Voice Dial

Sorry, I should have started a new thread!


Just went down to the AT&T store and held one of these (the Z9). All was well until I asked the salesperson to demonstrate voice dial. He could not get it to work and went to the counter to consult the Motorola Web Site. He came back with a blank look and noted Motorola did not include this feature on either the Z9 or the V9. This is a deal killer for me, but I still can't believe that a phone of this complexitivity is lacking this feature. Can anybody dispute this finding?

I did review the Z9's owner's manual on the Motorola site and it seems to imply that a headset must be used in order to use VD. Again, as I don't want to go around looking like Mr. Spock, this seems to be a de...

yellow screen on Z9 ??

The screen on my Z9 has been going yellow and
a message code SMS_ _ (missed the number)appears where the battery indicator is in the
corner. The phone has been dropped but always appears to work normally. This first appeared while trying to use the phone in the direct sun .Can anyone tell me what is causing this ?
Bad SIM card, battery ?

Thanks for any help.

Downloading contacts into Z9

Looking for some help. On the fence between the Z9 and Nokia 6650 Fold.

I am tied to blackberry/Outlook tandem for work and would like an easy way to transfer contacts from blackberry/Outlook to the phone. I am pretty sure the the nokia 6650 fold will synch with outlook but am doubtful the z9 has the functionality.

Any suggestions? Either a direct synch or work-around?

Z9 Alarm question

Hey on my old Razr I could hit one button and snooze and another and turn off the alarm WITHOUT disabling it. Meaning I didn't have to go back to my alarm menu and re-enable it, so if I get up at the same time everyday I can just turn it off and it's ready for the next day. Can't figure out how/if this is possible on the Z9. Anybody know??

Z9 vs. RAZR2 V9

I'm really having a hard time deciding between the Z9 Slide and the RAZR2 V9. Currently I have an L2 and it's pretty basic but it works. I've never had a slide or a flip. Background noise is really a problem with my current phone.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Does anyone know how to adjust the volume on the Z9? Hard to hear other party when there is much outside noise.

Network Question

So after resolving the great voice dial debate (thanks to all who responded), I did pick up one of these phones. Generally, I'm pleased, and, the better I learn the phone, the more I'm beginning to prefer it to my old Samsung.

Now, another question - this time network. I like to use the Opera Mini browser (it loaded fine and works well for the record), but I note that whenever I try to pull up a new web page (even after being on a site (say scrolling through CNN news stories), I get questioned, "Use Data Network" - again, EVERY time I attempt to pull up a new page. The only option that allows me to continue is, "Yes, always ask". So next time, I get the same question. Does anybody know how to program a, "Yes, don't ask again" respons...

Check SIM error

Anyone have a problem with their phone telling them the "Check SIM" for no apparent good reason? I've had my phone for 2 weeks and have gotten the error at least a half dozen times.

I'll just be sitting around and all of a sudden my phone will beep at me and display "Check SIM". A power cycle of the phone seems to fix the issue. What a hassle.

In the review the reviewer said that he downloaded google maps but it wouldn't work with the Z9. Does anyone know of a work around? I am not going to pay AT&T ten bucks a month for something a may only use once a month.

First off--Great review & thanks. I been anticipating this phone for some time but after I seen it and played with it some I just don't know. I have had my V3XX for about a year and a half now. Im really disappointed that the OS is virtually the same...no change in menu items etc. I'm just having difficulty with the pro's & con's. Just seems like the perfect phone will never exist lol.

i like it.

i've played with it in our store since it released. seems moto got it right this time! i haven't noticed the signal issue but i haven't left the store with it. my main gripe is soemthing i shouldn't gripe about, and that is the java restrictions at&t puts on it's newer phones and that the programs at&t put on the phone can't be deleted, like billboard mobile, mobile tv, etc...

Music as ringtones

Just as a note...you CAN use your music as a ringtone, but you have to cut it down to 29 seconds or less. I don't know why AT&T puts this limit on the phone, as "unlocked" Z9's (and RAZR2 V9's) don't have this limit. It IS possible to edit this and turn off the limit, though, but you have to know a little about modding your phone (google it, you'll find out which sites tell you how...I've done it).

Does AT&T offer GPS? I didn't see it on any of their packages offered on Amazon. If so, does anyone know how much it costs?
