Can't set phone to Vibrate

Got thie new Ming from China and it works great for the most part. However there are a few minor bugs that I am hoping to get soem help with.

1: Call Control is allowed - What is this all about? Although the call does go through, I still see it displayed. I am now beginning to notice that it may appear for only new numbers or numbers called for the first time.

2: My bigger issue is that I cannot get the phone to vibrate. I can set it to vibrate, the vibrate settings are all ok, but it doe snot vibrate. It goes silent. Does this have anything to do with the battery?

3: Missed calls and messaging alerts are also silent. The flashing ! mark is all that notifies me of any such calls or messages.

All settings are ok, I edited & re-ed...

Music Quality

I like the looks of this phone, and would love to buy it just for that. But I actually began researching phones hoping to get myself a phone/ mp3 player combo and moved up on price and features from there simply coz no high-end music phone seems to come without cam.

Unlike the boooooring Nokias (N70 music ed., for instance which has a comparable price here in India) or the Sony Ericsson W810i (again naming this one coz of price comparability) this actually looks sexy. So want it, want it. 🤤

Now Q to all: how's the music? Since that's my chief excuse to dump the old phone... 😎

no internet service on Cingular system?!

I was just about to buy the phone when I was told that the phone will not be able to access the internet and receive emails when connected via the Cingular system. I was told the reason is b/c this pda phone does not support the "edge" technology. Is this really true? Is there any way around this? Any Cingular experts out there who can tell me otherwise? Please....

can't set clock

I just got my motorola a1200 and I am really impressed with it.

The only problem is that the clock is currently set to January 1st, 1970!

Does anyone know how to set the clock manually? I can't seem to find this option anywhere.

I'm surprised it can't sync through my network (cingular) like my previous cell phone (razr). Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Recharge problem.


Yesterday I was in journey, and wasn't able to recharge my phone. So the battery is completely dried up. And When I connect it to my computer USB to recharge it, it randomly wakes up and windows xp tries to detect it as a modem device even if its in Mass Storage mode. And some times I am getting error saying "Invalid recharge port". I tried every thing from removing and reinserting battery and changing USB ports.

If anybody can help with cause of this behavior then it will be a great help to me, thanks.

SyncML Configuration!?

I want to sync my a1200 calendar with google calendar via goosync.com, which offers a SyncML OTA server.

I have entered the configuration of the goosnync account in my phone OTA setup (Under calendar, I went Sync then Setup->SyncML Setup).

When I do "Sync" the phone says it successfully authenticates with goosync, but then reports "Data Exchange Error".

One thing I had to guess was what to put in the text field of the "Data Path" entry for calendar in the phone SynchML setup. What is supposed to be there?

Has anyone got OTA sync working?

How to change the sound for an event/task alarm

Hi, I know how to setup the sound for the ringtone, alarm or an incoming message but on the menu for Task/Event Alerts
(setup>>ringer alert styles>>vibe and ring loud>>Event/Task alert)

I can only select from three options: on,off or vibrate.

How can I change the sound to some mp3 or midi?

😕 So Does anyone know where the earpiece is on this thing? At first I thought maybe it was the inside of that motorola logo when you flip open the plastic cover, but then i realized that that cover is clear and there are no wires running through it so obviously no power supply. so where the hell do you hear from on this phone. unless it has to be in speaker or on an earpiece. anyway, where is it?!!!!!

Now....Isn't That Nice?

The features on this phone look impressive. I want one, if only to play with for 24 hours. Any idea when this phone will hit the Americas? Any idea which carriers?

Txt Messaging, Calender Access, Reminders

I would love to be able to try out his fone b4 i buy it but it's not available in any fone stores to try.
So, I would like to know how easy it is to txt using the fone?

Do you have to use qwerty and do you have to use the stylus?

Could I access other info on the fone such as Calender appts while making a call?

Can i set up reminders on the calender for my appts?

Where can I get access to the manual for more info? Every time I attempt access it on Motorola page the link doesn't work...

Hello. I am very interested in the Motorola A1200, but from the info that I have been able to review, it is not available in the US, through the major carriers. Does anyone know if I do decide to purchase the phone, if it will work with Cingular? I would really hate to spend all that money on something I can't use.

Problem: on/off loop

Hey guys,

I have had my A1200 now for 6 months and I love it.

Just recently, the battery icon has a red slash through it, and the phone just keeps turning on and off over and over again. I purchased a new battery, but that did not work. I pushed the reset button in between the call and joystick button but that did not work.

Has anyone had this problem before? I bought it from e-bay, so I don't have anyone to go to, to fix it.
