V878 Cute Girl in Distress

Confused They say a cute girl can get out of a ticket but can she get help with her V878???

Bought the fone thinking aww so cute... last time I do that! I'm in the US and a TMobile'er and I am beginning to regret having bought this fone. B4 I ship it off on Ebay can anyone offer any help?

Sum folks say you can load mono-ringtones on it but you need Bluetooth? correct? I have a Dell 700m which of course DOESNT come with bluetooth capabilities... should I spring for the Bluetooth USB Adapter? Secondly does anyone know how to set up the browser info? Sum1 gave out directions as if it were a V300 but they either weren't very clear or I'm just a moron Very Happy And god damnit wats up with this cheesy calculator, I know this is an Asian fone and t...

MMS on v878

I just purchased v878 for Cingular and I cannot get MMS to work. Message is in the inbox, but can't retrieve it. I've tried to work with MMS setting but to no avail.

Suggestions, help, instructions will be appreciated.

Only 3 reviews? I need help with this, please :)

I have seen pictures and read some reviews for this v878. It seems like something I would be really interested in. I've never owned a Moto (now I have samsung e-105) and people around me keep saying that Moto always got weak signal... at lease compared to nokia or samsung. Is that true? I have heard terms such as 'piece of junk' and although I love the look and features of v878, I certainly don't want a piece of junk.

Right now I am looking at this v878, v551 and sharp TM150. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a bunch.

(Interested)I need help, cell phone illiterate...

...who would like to know some things. Okay, I'm very interested in this phone, but away from this board I heard bad things. I heard usually when you DL something like a ringtone or you leave ur phone inactive for a while the screen turns blank

"screen blanks out" meaning the damn screen quits working, not a screen saver! It's just a piece of **** phone full of defect. the hinge is loose and other parts are not fit properly. first time I've ever seen a phone with such a poor quality"

and other things is what I got from other boards...

"Suddenly the screen blanks out. There are so many problems with the battery, i faced one of the most in the first week itself. In the first week, automatically, my mobile turned off.., went ...

I love this phone but.... help!

This phone has incredible reception, great volume, fits everywhere and feels really solid for it's size.

So, what is the problem? The lights in the keypad are err..... pink. I am a guy and this just bugs me. Does anyone know of a way to change this without ripping the phone apart?

It just pisses me off that Moto finally made a phone that is a good size and has great sound and RF but then they F-Up on this feature. Maybe this was made for women... obviously the size is more conducive.

So... sorry to be a whiner but if I could just alter this one thing I would be in heaven! Any thoughts, suggestions other than an operation for myself?

Thanks much!

Caller ID problem? and Phonebook?

Hi it seems that I am having problems with the caller ID it only shows the incoming number and not the "name" of the caller like other phones. YOu know like if you have that person in your phone book it will show their name when they call. Is there a way to turn that feature on?

Also the phone book seems to list BOTH the SIM card and Phone phonebook memory So all my names show up twice in the phonebook one with a SIM symbol next to it indicating it is a SIM number. I tried selecting either the SIM or the Phone but it still continues to show BOTH... anyone know how to fix this?

This is a Great handset

I've had the V878 since last Friday.While I'm not big on Motorolla products, this one is excellent. Great reception, nice clear calls w/ & a really small, light unit. Easy to slip in your pocket. Good inner & outer full color (65K) screens. Able to download from MOTO site here in the States. Styling is a bit 40's Buck Rogers/ deco but not bad. No Bluetooth or IRDA but so what, not the worst thing not to have. The only negative is small memory.

Bet it Beats V810 to Market

Looks like a nice handset- too bad the black hole for cellular technology (AKA: The Unites States) can't get stuff like this. I'll even bet this one is in the hands of users long before it's cousin, the CDMA V810, is released in the US.
