Question(s) about Motorola E815

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Bob the Printer, Aug 28, 2005.

  1. I would like to know if the recent caller list on the E815 works like it
    does on the V710? On my V710 if I push the 'send' button, it gives me a
    listing of up to the last 60 calls, both inbound and outbound. I would hope
    it would be the same on the E815?? Reason I ask is that I have a friend who
    recently bought (3) Razr V3 phones (and of course switched to Cingular from
    VZW in the process) and he says that the V3 only shows the last outbound (or
    inbound, I forget which) calls. I told him he was silly for doing that, but
    he wanted the Razr and had tried briefly a CDMA version of the Razr and
    didn't like it too much.

    Also, is the USB cable the same for the V710 and the E815??

    Also, can the 815 use voice dialing with the speakerphone on and the phone
    closed?? I know the speakerphone itself works with the phone closed..


    Thanks in advance!

    God Bless America!

    And have a safe and happy 2005!

    815 works the same. Press send and you can scroll up and down to your
    hearts content thru the last 60 calls.

    That's correct, it is the same.

    I didn't know Verizon was already selling the CDMA version fot he RAZR.
    It's been rumored to come out in the 1st quarter of '06.

    FWIW, I tred the RAZR too. It's a nice phone, but having a nice phone
    doesn't compensate for lousy coverage or service, as I found out the
    hard way. Also, the e815 has significantly more features on it that
    more than makes up for the larger thickness and reduced "cool" factor.

    > Also, is the USB cable the same for the V710 and the E815??


    It looks like every vendor that is selling the data cable for e815 is
    claiming compatibility with the V710 as well, so it would appear to be
    the same cable.


    > Also, can the 815 use voice dialing with the speakerphone on and the phone
    > closed?? I know the speakerphone itself works with the phone closed..


    Yes, however to initially turn the speakerphone on, the flip must be
    open. Once it's on, you can close it and use voicedial.

    If you check part of my message above, I never said that he got it from
    VZW...:)

    But he did have it on VZW for a brief time before returning it. If I
    remember right, he got it from out of the US.. He said it was quite a bit
    thicker than the GSM Razr.

    I was surprised that he wanted the Razr that badly and switched to Cingular
    (and bought 3 of 'em in the process! One for him, one for his wife, and one
    for his daughter). He also got a 'black Razr' from Ebay I think, which is
    his spare one really but is the one he's using the most right now. One thing
    nice about the GSM phones is the sim cards, which make it dead easy to
    switch phones around. He also likes the rollover idea but I think he'll find
    that his coverage isn't quite as good down where he's located at the Jersey
    shore.

    Thanks for answering my other questions also. It looks like the 815 will be
    my next phone. I talked to VZW yesterday and I can upgrade right now for
    $150 and a $50 rebate, or wait until after Oct. 5 when I am eligible for the
    new every 2 and get it for $50 with no rebate required..

    One more question that perhaps you or someone else can answer: I understand
    that the transflash copy/move capabilities are crippled in the 815 (and in
    fact, the current V710, which is why I never bothered to get my 710
    upgraded). But can one use a transflash card in the 815 which has ringers
    and pictures on it (in the appropriate folders) and use those as ringers and
    pics on the phone (leaving the transflash card in all the time)??

    I just talked to my friend and while he can't remember just where he got the
    CDMA Razr, he found out after he had it activated on VZW (where he bought it
    from activated it on VZW) that it DIDN'T HAVE BLUETOOTH! That was the deal
    breaker for him and is why he went with the GSM Razrs that he has now. We
    both had V710 phones by the way.

    Also he says that with the GSM Razr, if he wants to use the speakerphone he
    has to first dial a number and THEN turn on the speakerphone. Can't turn on
    the speakerphone and then dial. Also he claims that when he ends a call the
    speakerphone goes off. That may be configurable though, he's not sure.

    I personally think that he jumped a little too soon, as he had been a VZW
    customer since the late 80's (so he claims)... I've been a VZW customer
    since 1994 or so myself. Never even a thought of changing to some other
    carrier as I've had excellent service, etc. But I digress..:)

    True, it is nice. Though I think CDMA carriers might be forced to
    implement some sort of R-UIM in the near future (R-UIM is the CDMA
    equivalnet of SIM card... yes, CDMA does support SIMs). The stock of
    ESNs is starting to run out, so the CDMA carriers will be forced to
    switch to something different soon enough.

    Yup, I'm in Jersey as well. Cingular covers the major highways, but
    once you stray into the less-developed areas (another shocker: yes,
    there are rural areas of NJ) Cingular's coverage disappears. Sprint
    coverage is marginally better, but Verizon is best around here.

    Hmm, not sure. I know bluetooth was crippled, but did not hear about
    transflash. I haven't purchased a tranflash card yet but intend to
    soon. If it IS crippled, I'm sure that with a cable and the right
    software "update" (similar to the procedures to restore bluetooth
    funtionality), transflash capabilities can be easily un-crippled.

    If it didn't have bluetooth, then I seriously doubt it's a genuine RAZR.
    He MIGHT have had the Samsung blade, basically a Korean RAZR copy:

    http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000990054260/


    Sprint intends to market the Blade in the US as its answer to the RAZR.
    Stupid idea if you ask me, but for whatever reason, Sprint has an
    aversion to Motorola.

    His answer to that one:

    I am positive. The Korean version of the RAZR does not have Bluetooth.
    They still have not figured out how to get the room in the CDMA version for
    the extra chipset. It does have a few features that the US version does not
    have such as a built in answering machine. But definitely no Bluetooth.

    Added by me:

    So he had a Korean CDMA RAZR it seems..

  10. Here's a message that I just received, with a link to where he got the
    Korean Razr from. The guy has a lot of high priced phones there! And he's in
    the US too!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here's the real deal on the RAZR. You can buy the Korean version that I had
    with no bluetooth or for a mere $2500 you can buy the Verizon branded
    prototype with bluetooth. This guy has everything. He is the guy I bought
    my Korean Razr from. Shawn is the owner and very nice to deal with.

    Maybe so, but $800 for a cell phone that does nothing more than the E815?

    Let me emphasize here that it WASN'T ME who wanted (and ordered and
    received) the Korean RAZR. It was a friend of mine and he has since returned
    it and switched to Cingular and bought 3 (count 'em 3) RAZRs for himself and
    his wife and daughter! But it's a business expense for him so..

    No, I wouldn't even think of getting ANY current RAZR V3 over the E815. It
    doesn't even do AS MUCH as the E815!

    I still can't figure out why he had to have the RAZRs...

    You can move pictures and video between the TF and internal phone memory
    just fine, as well as moving audio from memory to TF. What you cannot do
    is move audio from TF to phone memory. You can play the audio files just
    fine from the TF, but ringtones must be in the phone memory. However,
    there is workaround for this that does not require any "updates": put
    the audio on the TF, and compose a message to a bogus number (say,
    555-555-5555), attach the desired audio file to it, and "send" the
    message. The attempt will fail, but the audio file will be left in the
    outbox, from which it can be stored in the phone memory and used as a
    ringtone.

    The same technique to restore bluetooth functionality also can restore
    the disabled audio menu item. For details, go to HowardForums.com, the
    Verizon Wireless subgroup, and the Motorola subgroup under that.

    Yeah, 'seem' editing is how to do it but I'm not sure if I'm up to doing
    that when I get an E815...

    I also wonder if you have the speakerphone enabled and close up the phone
    can you have it set to auto-answer like you can when using a bluetooth
    headset?

    Reason I want to know this is that I currently have a Nokia 5185i for my
    wife (who is disabled) with the handsfree charging stand (dch-12k) since
    December of 2001. I just have the 5185i in that stand and have it set to
    auto-answer and I can call her anytime from my cell phone (or other phone)
    and it'll answer after two rings and I can talk to her. She doesn't have to
    do a thing and it's really very handy! The Nokia is 'original' digital and
    analog and has been dead reliable. I thought that when I got my E815 in
    October if it would be good to replace the Nokia with another 815 (if it'll
    work as well as the Nokia or similar to it).

    Thanks for any help or ideas (probably better to keep the Nokia..:)

    I was afraid that you'd say that.... Well at least the old Nokia with
    speakerphone charging stand is still work well..:)

    I've been trying to find the E815 manual online somewhere, but so far
    haven't had any success.

    True. On the other hand I've found a bluetooth headset often works far
    better than a speakerphone in terms of sound quality for both ends of
    the conversation.
