Now Tracking on the Phone

GPRS Problem :-

I would like to point out a very important error it has for GPRS users. It has a capacity of 10 different setting for GPRS of which 7 are preloaded from HUTCH, IDEA, AIRTEL.

This preloade settings cannot be deleted but can be edited, without editing their names. Hence leaving 3 vaccant entries for us, so tht other subscriber like Bsnl, Idea, etc can use it.

Now here all the problem begin.

I was a BSNL subscriber and not knowing which settings to download, I downloaded all the four settings available on the internet. When I received the fourth setting, the mobile refused to store it. And when I tried to delete the settings received by BSNL, I found a lock near their names and was unable to delete them as there was no such option.

SMSes Trouble :-

Now regarding SMS, it has a major error for those who need delivery reports. The delivery reports cannot be set to ON by default, you need to set it to on for every message.

And just like other Motorola handsets, it is good while reading a lot of SMS, as you donít need to exit and re-enter to read the next message but on the contrary, just press the down button when the message comes to an end and continue.

But I noticed a bug here too. I donít know whether this was only for my one, but the error was that while reading SMS continuously, if you press the UP button, it SOMETIMES comes to the main screen, I donít know why?

Mainscreen :-

Oh Yes! Main screen, how can I forget that, it does not support animated wallpapers (a great setback for young stylish users like us).I think everything else regarding it is good enough, it has time, date, signal strength, GPRS, java, phone line etc indicators.

Voice Dial :-

One more error that I noticed was regarding the voice dial. When you voice command to dial a number, it does not dial a number while just takes u to the contact and then u need to dial it(just by pressing the dial button).

Slower :-

The major draw-back is its slow response to keys, especially for those who type SMS fast. The response is more slow, when its screen is turned off (automatically to save battery) and you on it again.So many drawback,which could have been improved but....

Video Recorder :-

Another major drawback is Video Recorder. The recorder dont have inbuilt sound recorder,hence making a bit uncomfort. Also Lag of FM is quite noticable

Exortica :-

Damn ***y looking side which are very slim and the black pannel looks cool. It has a good speaker, good ringtone profiles, and a special facility to lock the phone with a password while still receiving calls ( its similar to Nokiaís keypad lock password but here you need do it manually, it cannot be done automatically).

The templates used in MMS are also cool, and the Motorola ringtone(Hello Moto) is good as it starts with a good.

Hey I also noticed something new in this phone i.e. PTT(Push to Talk) !! According to the manual, it says that the phone can work like a walkie. You just need to enter the phone number of a PTT subscriber and press the PTT button and speak your message. The person at the other end will hear ur message and if he wants to reply he can speak back. Now I would like to have some cool downloads for my cell, especially applications and games.

So here I go.....
