Motorola V551 / V330 / V547 / V555 / V557
I called Cingular the only option I have is to get a 2 year contract for a razor or a 1 year. The phone is still under warrenty.
Did anyone had same issues with this phone,and how did they fixed it.
Record A Ringtone?
when I try to send my phone messages using +and my #, from AIM, they dont work. Anyone know why? I get this message: Your message could not be delivered. Please try again later.
I've tried two Jabra wired headsets with buttons, but the button does nothing on the V551. I have to open the phone to answer. I can't find any definitive answer to whether it is possible or not.
It works with bluetooth headsets, but the bluetooth respose time is just too long for me. The call goes to voice mail before I can connect and answer.
EDGE Speed via Tethering to Laptop?
V551 should be Class 4 EDGE and Class 10 GPRS. AT&T technical assistant told me that the EDGE tethering should be 60 to 80 kbs and GPRS is 20 to 45 kbs. I have AT&T SIM and they told me that it should not make any difference.
Has anyone got the EDGE speed via V551? I use Bluetooth connection. Is there any difference using the USB cable instead of Bluetooth?
Any input will be appreciated.

V551 Ringtones and System Error
I just got a new V551 (yeah I know its arcahic now) and I'm having trouble putting custom ringtones on my phone.
When I try using a BlueTooth adapter i get a System Error when trying to access uploaded songs.
Also-- is there a way to put songs on my phone without getting charged for internet fees? (I keep on getting a System Error when accessing songs that i uploaded to my FTP server).
Finally-- is the only other option a USB cord?
Help with Moto V551
I've a friend who desperatly needs some photos copied from her phone. The phone was dropped, so even though the phone is working the screen is not!
I'm guessing I can probably get them off somehow over bluetooth. I don't have the data cable or software though so that side of things is not an option.
It's pretty important to get these photos for her personal reasons so I'm trying my best to figure out a way.
If anyone has a V551 that can tell me the keystrokes required to enable bluetooth then it would be most appreciated.
If anyone has any other thought on how to get them off then that would also be appreciated.
Motorola V551/V557 Games!
I was wondering, on the Cingular website's "Phone Compatability Chart", is shows that the V551 is compatible, but isn't on sale. The only one that is, is the V557. Is the V557 compatible? I'm a sucker for games. 😛 😁

V557 Reception - Software problem??
Wish I could have enjoyed my 557, seemed like a nice upgrade to the 551 ☹️
Different Color External Display
V330 or V557, any difference for travel use?
Camera images sometimes blurred / blur-wiped (V551)
They also have that blur effect when transferred to and viewed on another phone or on a PC. What's weird is that the initial image looks fine.
The warranty replacement we just got has the same problem. Anyone know what might be causing this? It appears to be a software glitch....
Has anyone else had this problem with any phones in this line?
Would appreciate any reports on your satisfaction with the V557. I understand that it replaced the V551 due to many problems with the 551.
Interested in reception strength and battery life.
"Enter Subsidy Password"
I purchased a Motorola V551 to use with my AT&T plan and when I turn it on with my AT&T SIM card install, it says "Enter Subsidy Password."
I assume it means that Cingular has now locked their phones.
Does anyone have the code to unlock it?
