I just purchased the Motorola W755 in the Black. It states in the manual that is has the talking caller ID. If you have this phone, it's on page 36. Also page 41. They state that you can set the phone to say who is calling before it starts ringing, if you have the person in your contact list. It's called caller ID Alert. I have done everything the book says, but when I call my cell from my home, it just rings. It doesn't say "call from Home" like it's supposed to. Any ideas?
This is my 2nd w755 and I will never buy moto again! How is it that when you have the phone on vibrate mode and u get a call, it starts playing a ringtone and then locks up? I have had to pull the battery out every time to get it back to "normal". I have already done the software update that verizon recommended and its still not working right. Also, I can have my boyfriend call me (we are on the same account) and my phone never rings on my end, and rings 6 or 7 times on his end. What good is a phone if its not functional? Never motorola again!
Need comments on Motorola W755 sound muffled-Verizon
Need comments on Motorola W755 sound Verizon
Got phone and it works okay. However while other people can hear me fine, their voice sounds muffled. The muffled sound occurs regardless of using just the phone, phone with wired headset via USB dongle, or phone with bluetooth..
Anyone else experience this?
Anyone recommend another phone with Verizon with decent battery life (or I can add an extended battery), good sound, easy to push buttons??? I could always change carriers and I could always wait 6 months until I find something I really like. Probably have to pay to get a different phone as this is only 3 months old.
I only got this phone because my old trusty LG VX8300, at the time held together by superglue and duct tape, finally died last fall. This phone never impressed me. There was always a gummy lag with all of the functions, the battery was embarrassing -- worse than some of my phones years ago -- and it just flat out stunk.
I even blew my wallet out on the Verizon rip-off price for extended battery.
Then, I broke the main screen on this 755. So for the past month, the only way I've been able to access my contacts is through the voice dial feature -- meaning a lot of shouted "NO!" and "BACK!" to the computerized female voice.
I pleaded with Verizon that I'd been a loyal customer for a decade, could I please get a discount on the new VX83... (continues)
I amm looking at getting a prepaid service from Verizon. The two phones they have available that I'm interested in are the Moto w755 and the LG vx5500. Would anyone have any experience with both these phone as far as reception? I live in the mtns of western NC and would like to purchase the one which has better reception. I was told buy a sales person that the w755 has dual internal antennas. He said the 5500 was new and he didn't know about it. The 5500 at $50 would cost me less than half what the 755 is at $120.Thanks.
Anyone need the extended batter for really cheap? I got it about two months ago (because the original with this phone is absolutely terrible) -- paid the obscene $50 charge for it, too -- and yesterday accidentally ran over the phone with my car. Everything intact but the screen.
I'll part with it for $15.
I hated this phone since I got it. Sluggish and terrible.
I am trying to offload my pictures to my PC and I Cannot find a Driver for the W755 for my PC I have the connection cable but when Windows tries to Find a driver on the Internet it cannot be found. Any suggestions ? RayBriggs9999@yahoo.com
I am considering this phone, but there do not seem to be any recent user comments in this forum regarding the known glitches:
1. Did Moto or Verizon ever come out with a software patch to fix the talking Caller ID issue? 2. You can text small music files to your phone, but can you set them as a caller-specific ringtone? 3. Have there been any other software updates?
I've had the phone now for about 2 months and today it stopped communicating with my head set Moto H12. The head set pairs with and works my dtr's i-phone. Has anyone had this happen with there W755? I guess Monday after VD I'll take it to the Verizon store and see what they say.
I've currently got a Samsung U740 that has a 1.3mp, but I really thing the quality of photos are terrible. I was wondering what all of you thought of the picture quality on the moto?
Also those of you with bluetooth.. how well does it work on this phone? I bought a Blueant Z9 bluetooth headset..and a Plantronics from Verizon for my Samsung, and neither of them worked well at all with the phone. I wasn't sure if this is a "Verizon crippling the bluetooth" or just the Samsung's bluetooth didn't work well.
I love the phone.I have been having problems with the voice recognition on the bluetooth not the phone.I have the Plantronics Explorer 222.The sound quality is good.I would say 50% of the time when I tell the bluetooth to call a particular name it gets it wrong.Not even close and it calls the wrong person and I can't seem to disconnect in time. This is the second one I have tried.I tried adjusting the voice recognition on the phone.It's a shame because I like the clarity. Any suggestions?
This has been the worst phone to get ring tones on. It's my wifes phone and I know like my phone (world Phone) I and get any MP3 or WMA and make it a ringtone. why is it so hard to do that on this phone. Has someone figured it out yet. Please help! Thanks
1. Is there any way to toggle between an audible ring tone and vibrate only with the phone closed w/o having to use the nonsense 'false' keys on the top portion of the phone - similar to the way that you were able to do so w/ a Razr?
2. Why when I toggle between an audible ring tone and vibrate only - whether using the outter buttons when the phone is closed or using the pound button when the phone is open - does it put the ring tone back to MEDIUM HIGH and not HIGH, as I had it when first switching to vibrate only? Any way to fix this?
Much thanks for any help that you may be able to provide.
