i got my old i560 out and tried to get it going. bought a new battery, but when i connect the charger, the phone vibrates and nothing else happens..............can anyone give me some input on this? I am trying to access my sim card...........really need some help here.
This is just a note to alert anyone else that has the Motorolla i560. Mine will shut itself off. This may occur even with a full battery. This is a know issue and will be fixed if you bring it in for service. I hope mine can be repaired. For more information google for i560 and shutdown.
i was just wondering if this phone will last for two years. Cause i might get this phone this June and I'm trying to decide: i530 or i560 or i730. If you have any opinions on the phones above do not reply on the forum email me at Magicboi94@yahoo.com
I think this phone is really cool looking. I like the yellow. The nextel phones look so durable and tough. I hope when Sprint and Nextel share the same cdma technology that they will continue to have these type of Motorola phones. I want one! 😁
Were there any camera phones that use a CCD sensor rather than a CMOS?
All the megapixels in the world done mean a thing if the lens and the sensor are not high quality.
If you compare the MPX220 1.3 mp CMOS camera to the SE S710A 1.3 mp CCD camera there is no comparison.
Aside from the s710a are any other manufacturers planing on putting together a phone with a CCD camera to compete with the s710a?
The reason I ask is that I like all the features on the Sony-ericsson, but I do not like their interface. I may stand alone on this fact but I prefer the motorola interface, especially when it comes to their predictive text input and various menu navigation.
I am trying out the s710a for a few days and I have decided they... (continues)
That should have been reported were the small upstart companies.
I talked to some of the manufacturer reps and more than a few of them were impressed with the design and build qualities of some of the smaller Chinese and Korean venture groups.
One group that was really impressive at the show was NewGen with their really cool designs.
Under an inform discussion in the eating area, some of the these product managers feel that in the next 10 years, some of them (like Hop On, Bird, New Gen, Telson) maybe in the top 10 market and some of the older stalwarts in the world markets (like Alcatel, Philips, Siemens and Mitsubishi) may pull out as phones becomes total commodity items.
Like I mentioned for reasons stated in the new Part 2, I complied with LG's request and covered up the carrier logo on the F7200 keypad.
I'm sure some of you also noticed that it said "Cingular" on the display, and I did not cover that up...
That was intentional. It was not an oversight, and is not any kind of "cheating" with LG's request.
The deal is... what a GSM phone says on the screen is not necessarily the carrier that brands and sells that phone. Depending on how the phone and/or SIM chip are configured, the name on the screen is usually that of the carrier that sold the SIM, or the current network the phone may be roaming on.
So the fact that it says "Cingular" on the screen means very little and doesn't necessarily gives... (continues)
Someone down there at the show, get some information and lots of new pictures of the motorola i930 with different screens. ask what the deal is on the phone and release date and why it's taking so long to approve this phone. Thanks
I am always amazed that more carriers don't spend the extra money and make their GSM phones Quad-Band (850/900/1800/1900) instead of coming out with one or even two tri-band versions of the same phone.
I realize that very few people actually seek out quad-band phones, but if you're making the phone capable for three frequencies, why not four?
Perhaps the rest of the manufacturers know something that Motorola will not admit - that squeezing 4 radios in these compact phones affects RF performance.
Anyway I will continue to only purchase quad-band, as the last thing I want to do is get stuck wishing I had GSM 900 in Gabon or GSM 1800 in Trinidad. And you pretty much need 850/1900 here in the states. Oh well.
