Motorola A1200 / MING
Awesome phone! best Motorola yet!
I bought a red A1200 and it has been labeled by my associates as the ultimate 'hot chick phone'. The flip lid is definately easier for manicured or long nails to operate. The battery takes a beating if you use all the features as I do. It will make it through a typical 8 hour work day with some to spare. All the features ( handwriting recognition, camera, MP3, internet access, infared transmission, etc.) work flawlessly. I sometimes have to plug the charger in twice to get it to take, but it beeps to let me know it's connected and charging. The reception is better than the V3X and A780 Motorolas I had previously. The PDA aspect is better and easier to use than the A780 and rivals my Sony Clie' which it replaced. It is sleek, beautiful, functional, and sexy. What more could a girl want? ...or a real man for that matter...
Bought at CompUSA going out of business. Phone was in Japanese
AD reviews continues below...
pros: stylish, small ane elegant looking; i also like the voice activation and most of the features.
cons: i just recently bought the phone on e-bay this week and im having a problem with its battery it only last for not even a day; in order for me to use it without getting worried of battery shortage; i had to connect the charger to the electric outlet; i switched the battery from my old cell phone but its still the same; can someone help me? tell me what's wrong with my phone; i like my phone but its worthless if this continues.
I HAD this phone a little while back and boy was it a nice phone. i had a prepaid Cingular SIM card in it and it took a bit to connect and start ringing. overall a good phone but some minor probs.
CONS: hard to open, small internal memory, kind of hard to get used to.
PROS: i don't know if anybody elses' had games pre-installed, responsive touch, eye catcher, not a fingerprint magnet
Also to add to this, almost all my friends "forgot" their phones and asked to borrow mine.
I loved this phone when I had it. The only thing i didnt like about it is the fact that you could see whats going on underneath the earpice but still had to open the phone to respond.
excellent device but still a phone
Design is great you can easily download free games or software online theres is also *.xls *.doc reader also on the web (try google.com to look up).
Everything is great the main issues are writing which is not easy without stylus (very hard while walking).
You can go to main screen by clicking to right soft button if you are using an application press twice to return to app.
Also application may take within 0.5 TO 2 SECONDS TO open and sometimes you click to another application while first is opening.
Its a great phone you can carry files on almost every format but do not dispose you PDA
My Ming, My Love, My Life!
Alright the Motorola Ming A1200......
I have to say that i really do love this phone tons! i love the web browsing, reception the phones gets, business card reader is freaking awesome! Yes the screen can get a little dirty but hey clean it! its your phone. You need to get a case cause the clear smoke cover does scratch easy, the touch screen is awesome very accurate and not annoying. The voice commands is also something else i really love also very accurate, the battery life could be a Little better but im always on the internet so that drains my battery a little faster. Very classy and stylish!! i get complements all the time. The phone ringer is freaking loud! all in all an awesome phone. I use to own an MDA till i sold it and i would never go back to it! Buy it you'll love it!
I just got this phone today.. and things seem to be in place and working just fine - except the vibrate option for anything (ring, message, etc). If anyone has any ideas on how to fix it that'd be great..
Otherwise a great phone so far!!
Not good for american providers
cool design but most smart phone features don't work well in america
I don't recomend this phone to anyone!!!
I love this phone and it's so unique and original I want to stay one of the few people who have/know about this phone.
Touch Screen - Great to have and fun to use... Really sets this phone apart from all the others
MP3 & FM - The MP3 player works great and sounds really well, also nice to have the FM radio from time to time
Music Edit! - This is the first phone I've ever had with this feature and it's awesome that you can chose any section from any song that you want as a ringtone
Size and Shape - Speaks for itself... you get all of the great PDA functions but not in a huge Treo body (I say Treo because of the touch screen comp. also HTC, both way to bulky)
Camera - 2mp beats most common phones in US
Video - Up to 2hrs per video - I'd never use that much at one time but still nice not to have to cram things into 17.6 sec
Lots more too!
A bit of a hassle to get set up - doesn't come with factory settings for MMS and Internet so you have to find them yourself, not impossible just a bit of a draw back
Slow response on Voicemail - I don't know why but whenever my phone shows that I have a voicemail and I press on it to retrieve the voicemail it takes forever to connect - works fine if I just dial it myself. Don't know why it's like that - a little annoying
Text Messaging - you pretty much have to use the stylist on this one so it's slower than a T9 or qwerty
Touch Screen - A pain in the rear to try and keep clean - I clean it at least once a day and it's still has to be cleaned again and again
But anyway I think everyone should avoid buying this phone because I like being the only person I know that has it. ;)
