Mobil Phonetools and V710

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Bob, Sep 13, 2004.

    I want to move to Verizon from ATT. I have a V600 using Mobile Phone
    tools. Does the 710 support Mobile Phone tools so I can just re-sync
    and load up the 710? I have >250 numbers in the V600.

    I've heard some say sync by Bluetooth is disabled, how about sync by
    USB cable and hands-free operation by Bluetooth? Are those features
    available?

    How do folks get photos off the V710 to the PC?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Should work fine, depending on what version of MPT you have. I hear that
    earlier versions do not support the V710. I got the mobile office kit when I
    bought my V710, which doesn't do any multimedia but works nicely to d/l and
    u/l the phonebook. The MOK also included the USB cable of course.

    As noted above, synch by USB cable works fine. Hands free with either of the
    Motorola bluetooth headsets works fine (I like the hs810 a little better
    than the 820). Some other bt headsets (such as the Jabra 250) work ok, but
    seem to go brain dead after being linked for a while.

    Two words, Transflash card... I got my 128 MB from amazon for just over
    $30. (which includes the SD adapter of course!). Works just dandy with the
    built in card reader on my HP PC. But remember, it's best to have the phone
    turned off when inserting or removing the card since it's not really meant
    for 'hot plug n play'.

    I have the 820, but never had a chance to try the 810. One thing I
    think I would like better about the 810 is the on-off switching. Also,
    if I recall correctly from what I read, you can't make voice dials with
    the 810, but I know you can with the 820.

    Anything that you can do with the 820 you can do with the 810, including
    voice dial (or other voice command) calls. I know that you posted a short
    while back what the Motorola people told you, but that's wrong. The 810 has
    the short mic boom and seems to pick up your voice a bit better than the
    820. The 810 also has a noise canceling mic, which helps in noisy
    situations. The battery life on the 820 is supposed to be better than the
    810 also. The folding mic boom is nice since that also shuts off the headset
    and unfolding it turns it back on. Much more convenient than having to hold
    the command button in to turn it on and off. Only thing is that you can't
    fold the boom while it's on your ear, but that's minor I guess. Plus there
    is the included little case and lanyard with the 810, which I will probably
    not use. The 810 does have a little 'loop' on it to which the lanyard can
    attach. All in all I like the 810 a bit more than I did the 820.

    Can't believe anything that tech or customer support tells you, it
    seems. *sigh*

    Well, I have until Wed to return the 820, but not being able to fold the
    boom while wearing the headset makes the power switch on the 820 better
    for me, and tells me to keep the 820.

    My Prius has bluetooth connectivity, so when I enter the car, I press
    the multifunction button for a count of ten to turn off the HS820, and
    the car connects with the phone. After turning off the car, I press
    again for a ten count to turn the HS back on. I wear it almost from
    waking up until going to bed (except for when I'm bathing or showering),
    and turn it off and on when necessary.

    Also the 820 supports BT 1.2, but that shouldn't be an issue for me
    because the phone is BT 1.1.

    That would seem to be the best thing for your case...
