Many of you know that the MOT v600's have been recalled and AT&T has decided to no longer market this phone. The inventory we have will last approximately one month. Once the inventory runs out the replacement phone will be the NEC 525 if you need a replacement through the Lock/Line insurance
I apologize if this exact info has already been posted but...
OK just got off of the phone w/ Cingular, and while reading straight from the pre-written report, this is the gist of what's going on:
The v600 meets Moto's specs, but apparently doesn't meet Cingular's RF specifications, and it's causing users to have reception/signal problems in "certain markets". At this time they can only offer a v400 (which they will overnight to you) as a replacement, until the "new" v600's are ready (around September). Apparently there is a transistor chip in the phone that isn't supposed to be there. It's interfering w/ Cingular's network signalsand that is what is causing the reception problems.
I did ask how LONG this recall will be going on... (continues)

This phone looks pretty cool after looking at the features, but after reading just one page of reviews, the phone looks terrible. I wanted to buy it if I start a new ATTWS contract, but why bother if the phone sucks? It looks decent, but could someone tell me why it's so terrible? The reviews seem to butcher the phone...is it really that bad?
I am thinking about buying this phone, but if it as bad as people have been reviewing it, can anybody make a suggestion of another phone similar to this with less bugs and almost the same features? Thanks.
Lots of people have been asking about a software upgrade for the v600 to remedy issues similar to the following.
1) Call fail error and successive retry fail error
2) Erratic signal strength
3) Can't end calls
4) When making a call it says the phone number you just dialed is disconnected or incorrect
5) Dropped calls
Since I could find very little or no information about this online I decided to call AT&T tech support. I explained each issue carefully. For those of you wondering about a software upgrade, it was never mentioned as a possible solution. However they did offer to exchange my phone even though I have had it for a few months. For a one time fee of $15 they are going to ship a new phone and have me return the old... (continues)
T-Mobile might drop the Moto v600 soon. To begin I never liked the phone. I have the d-415 and it's great!!! But on the other hand the Moto v600 isn't doing so good. Orginally Moto says the v600 was made ONLY for AT&T(GSM). But since Cingular & T-Mobile got interested in it they sold it to them not saying the problems they might have since the software isn't ment for thier system. Moto didn't care b/c they were getting the money. So Cingular & T-mobile started testing it with thier systems and they started to find about the problems. But after a while with messing with the software Cingular had made it work .... But not for long!! So they dropped it !! Like a couple days ago. And T-mobile had the phone for like 5 months until they released ... (continues)
i just ordered my 2nd v600 from att (for another member in the house). how come when i turn this on, i see an icon in the middle of a phone with the number 1... implying i have 2 lines on this phone when i only have one? how do i get rid of this icon/feature?
I'll start this off letting all know that I am a cingular customer. That being said, we are all aware there is a recall going on here. Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has any idea if we'll be getting v620's when it's all said and done, or are we just getting a fixed v600. I'm afraid that I already know the answer to this but maybe someone out there can tell me something good (with some validity involved). After all, isn't the v620 just an updated v600 and isn't that something Motorola should (but probably won't) do to show some gratification to their customers?
talked to att customer rep on the phone and complained about how the phone freezes (have to force shutdown and turn back on when trying to end a call that won't end...). she said there's a software upgrade for this. does anyone know where/how to get this? do i go in-store or can they do it over the phone when they switch me to the technical customer rep?
I have a v600 and a HS810 Bluetooth Headset. I know there are numerous volume hacks to change the earpiece and mic volumes of the actual phone, but has anyone found a hack to increase the volume of the Bluetooth Headset? This would be fantastic if anyone has gotten ahold of one, as the Bluetooth Headset volume is just too low sometimes!
I'm confused. Been reading the forums and see that there's a "reception" problem with the V600s on Cingular. But I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, bought a Cingular V600 on Sunday (Circuit City has a SICK rebate whereby if you buy a V400 for $80, you get a FREE V600 and a FREE Bluetooth) and, so far, have experienced no reception problems at all. Phone works great (well, as great as cell phones work, which isn't saying much.)
So, my question is: Are the V600 problems nationwide or are there only geographic pockets where the phone has problems?
