Motorola V620 Review
Review: November 2004. Updated January 2005.
Based on the Motorola V600, the Motorola
V620 is a very highly-specified phone with an integrated digital video
camera, MP3 ringtones and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Quad
band lets you roam globally.
The main difference between the V600 and the V620 is the addition of
a video recorder and an enhanced internal display with 262,000 colours
instead of 65,000.
The V620 has the same styling as the V600 except that it comes in a
distinctive black finish and is very slightly larger (and a few grams
heavier). It's a great looking phone, although larger than most comparable
clamshells. The quality of the display is top-notch and the camera and
video recorder perform well. The software glitches that dogged the V600
seem to have been fixed in the V620, however, there are widespread problems
in getting the V620's WAP and MMS settings to work. Some of our users
have written tips on getting this to work, so read the user reviews
below if you are experiencing problems with these settings.
Features of the Motorola V620 include:
- Integrated Digital Camera with 4x digital zoom and video recorder
- Video Clip playback with sound
- Internal display: 262,000 Colour TFT (176 x 220 pixels)
- External display: 2 Line (96 x 32, Inverse image)
- Event lights
- 22 Embedded polyphonic ringtones (24 voice), 3 MP3 ringtones
- MotoMixer (Remixable MIDI ringer software)
- Downloadable Themes: Animated screensavers, wallpapers and ringtones
- Java games: Golf (full version), Wakeboarding, FotoFunPack 2 and
space for downloads
- EMS & MMS (Picture / photo + text + sound)
- Instant Messaging Support
- Email: STMP, POP3, IMAP4
- WAP Browser version 2.0, GPRS class 10

Finally got WAP to work after 3 weeks and help from below and other
web sites. Was in carphone warehouse for hour and a half and they did
not have a clue and denied knowledge of a problem with this phone??
either lying or stupid. Can receive MMS messages fine but no one can
receive mine. Shows as being sent but they just vanish into thin air.
Any advice? on 02 contract. Think I am gonna ditch this piece of junk.

I bought this phone a few days ago! Now I've managed to sort the MMS
settings out, I am pleased to say this phone is the best phone I've
ever had. It looks good, feels good and sounds good too. Makes a change
having a polyphonic phone, that one can actualy hear ringing while it's
in my pocket. Camera is ok, but I only ever use it to add a picture
to my contacts. If you want a phone with a camera that takes very very
good pics then this phone isn't for you. Although the picture quality
is better than most VGA cameras. The menus are very easy to navigate.
Writing txts are very easy too. Not keen on Itap, but then again, I've
never really used predictive txt. But it appears getting used to the
Itap would become second nature after writing a few txts with it. The
flashing lights are a novelty and cause exclamations of wow and cool,
from the younger folk when they see it. As has been mentioned a lot
here. The only down side is, the MMS and Wap settings don't work. If
you buy the V620 then you gotta set it up yourself. But it's worth it
in the end. If your looking for a good well made mobile with ease of
use, then this is the one for you. I would reccomend this phone to anyone.
I would have given this 5 stars if I didn't have to mess around setting
up Wap & MMS.

message "Page cannot be displayed" on some WAP pages. Especially o2
pages such as games and chat. Is anyone else having these problems.
I`m on o2 contract. Thanks. Phone is quite good by the way, but feel

has been superceeded by the V636 already!!

I brought this phone sim free somewhat two months ago now and have had
nothing but trouble.I paid £200. (extremely overpriced for what
you get) As i brought the phone unlocked this meant that I had to insert
my own sim card. Which I used from my old phone. However I could not
send nor receive mms or wap! It took me some 2 months to get this probelm
sorted out and now I still can't even recieve photos!!! I am sick of
all this trouble it has caused me. I shall never be buying a handset
again EPSECIALLY not this model!!! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!

I bought the phone from O2 and could not get the MMS or WAP working

but no joy.I decided to put my old ORANGE chip in and got the settings
from there website direct (setup.orange.co.uk).The closest model is
the V635 and they worked fine with full WAP & MMS.The phone is now "Brillant"..
I think there should be more info on how to get your MMS & WAP right
first time. Spike..

Absolutly brilliant phone and extremly stylish also dosent feel like
a toy unlike similar phones like this one I had some trouble with wap
and mms to start of with I took it to my local Orange shop they were
no help at all!!! They basically said that i need a new sim card (something
i didnt want to do because i would lose my get out there orange package
that i bought when it first came out) So if they try selling you a new
sim card then tell them where to go! because if you go on the orange
setup website (http://setup.orange.co.uk) and get sent the settings
for the v635 then it works perfectly on this phone! hope this helps
everyone that is on orange!!!

No WAP or photo messaging out of the box on O2 but with help from Carphone
Warehouse WAP works with settings from Motorola. To get photo messaging
to work don't forget to get settings and ALSO ask O2 to turn photo messaging
ON with a PICON text to O2. Why oh why didn't anyone tell me that the
day I bought the phone? The info is in the O2 welcome pack but they
didn't give me one. Now everything works its a great phone, even getting
used to the predictive text messaging...

Again, had the Messaging/WAP worked then this would get full marks and

PAYG sim - Virgin's web site can send the settings to your phone, but
the V620 is not listed - just the V600, V500, V300, etc SO can someone
tell me which to choose at email@example.com . Thanks.

Great phone but the ongoing problem with o2 mms & gprs settings has
put a real downer on it.I have personally emailed o2 several times on
this issue and recieved totally contradicting answers every time,none
however explaining that o2 doesnt support the phone yet!I hope those
o2 customers who have bought the phone continue to pester o2 till they
sort this,i certainly will.The only criticism of the phone is that it
could have had more or expandable memory 5mb isnt much.

As it's my birthday this week, I was really looking forward to recieving
my motorola v620. I'm 15 and loved the idea of seeing my mates in 260,000

they were blurry and so were the videos. I also wanted to acess the
internet on it but how ever much I tried (And believe me seen as this
phone cost my grandma £179 I did) I took advice from a person
on this site and still no internet. I got this phone on o2 and am regretting

Sorry, but having purchased this phone having read so many reviews on
this website I have to be the odd one out and say I think its a terrible
waste of money. I am in my 40's so probably ancient compared to some
of the posters here. If you are aged 15 - 25 I guess its ideal. It has
loads of useless flashing lights, tinny sounding ring tones, the colours
are the worst I have seen and the predictive text drove me nuts. Havnt
been able to get the WAP or the MMS to work correctly either. I know
I am showing my age , but all I wanted for nearly £200 was a PHONE
!!! Not this toy... cant recommend it sorry.

Reviewed by Ollie from United Kingom on 2nd Feb
Great phone...but the whole O2 shenanigans is pretty off-putting..I
mean..how long has this phone been out for now? I would've given this
phone 4 stars if the GPRS/MMS settings worked, and it would've been
5 if it had a memory card slot. And maybe a more user friendly bluetooth..where
"Find Me" is permanently on. Sending a text takes some getting used
to...but it's the same whenever you switch manufacturers. To the people
who are complaining about the video length go to Multimedia > Videos
> Press the Menu key > Scroll down to Video Setup > and change video
length from MMS to Maximum.

Hi, To all you Motorola V620 users, o2 network, payandgo, BIG, BIG,
PROBLEM. MMS messaging, o2 Wap/GPRS, come on o2 sort the problem out!!!
Same problem as Kelvin, o2 wap page cannot be displayed, followed Ade's
advice for settings on Motorola T620i, spoken with numerous technician's,
one of which emailed all the settings that I needed for the phone. STILL
NOT WORKING, was told o2 software will be sorted by the end of Jan,
with only a few more days to go, come on o2 get your finger out and
sort it, you have a lot of customer's relying on you. Phone o.k. but
not much good if can not use all of it's functions. Forgot to mention
purchased the phone from Carphone warehouse. (Where else!).

Purchased the phone early this month. Wasn't told that 02 isn't supporting
some of the features! Can't access or download some of the menu sites
especially the ringtones and wallpapers etc!(Message says 02 does not
currently support this handset). So when will all V620 users be able
to gain access to everything they are entitled to. When you buy a phone
or take out a contract you are asuming you get what you are paying for!!
Come on 02 get your act together with Motorola for the V620.

Excellent phone! looks pretty smart and works alright. its got a good
picture quality and transfering data between my pc is straight forward
(once i managed to get it installed....) One thing wierd though and
probably the only downside, everyone is saying that the video timing
is quite long but on my phone you get about 30secs worth (huh?). Otherwise
good buy! I think this phone would still look good a year from now,
while others would look outdated.

I bought this phone SIM free for use on Vodafone. I was particularly
impressed with teh design and styling, as well as the features, though
in my opinion it would have been nice to have had Infra-Red connectivity
included rather than just Bluetooth. I would have given this phone 4
or 5 stars if it wasn't for a problem that's started to occur. I was
unable to send or receive MMS messages. After spending an hour on the
phone to Vodafone and several attempts to receive and load the settings,
the support guy told me to perform a full RESET of the handset via the
menu option. I did this and hey presto, MMS now works! BUT...Bluetooth
has now stopped working and some wierd things are happening to the battery
display/meter wherby when the main adapter is plugged in its not showing
a full charge (only 1 bar) yet when uplugged it show a full charge.
I guess the software's got itself in a twist. I tried resetting a couple
of more time but to no avail. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi have finally got a genuine cure for the continuing WAP Dial up (not

and change only the following fields: Name : O2 Wap Home Page : http://wap.o2.co.uk
**Please note this still does not work yet as o2 have not yet approved
the phone but will do in near future - but you can enter another address
such as google or bbci for homepage for now** Service Type: WAP Gateway

to access other wap pages if you have the addresses for them but still
cannot get the o2 homepage!! At lease its a start and hopefully o2 will
sort their problem out soon. The phone is great by the way!

Myself and two friends bought this phone on Saturday 22nd January 2005,
on Virgin PAYG, from The Carphone warehouse. The phone itself is lovely,
nice size and weight, with excellent ringtones and picture quality.
However,you try to get the GPRS and MMS to work. We spent most of yesterday
on the phone to Virgin, who were very un-helpful and basically told
us that because they do not do that phone on their website, they couldn't
help us. So we spent 3 hours today, in Carphone Warehouse trying to
get the problem fixed, with no success. They rang, Virgin, who again
were very un-helpful and did not want to know. They rang Motorola, who
said that the person who deals with this type of problem wasn't in until
tomorrow, so we were stuck. After spending all this time, and having
my phone messed with for 3 hours, the camera and video functions do
not work, and my wallpapers do not work anymore. Needless to say, they
will be going back tomorrow for a full refund.We are all really disappointed.
I can't see why they are selling these phones on Virgin and 02, knowing
that all these problems are arising. Oh yes, and Richard Branson? sort
your staff out, cuz their attitudes are disgraceful.

Had the phone for a few days now, 10 times better than my old Samsung
D410 which kept breaking down, so was glad when they couldn't repair
it and gave me the V620 as a freebie. Nokia has the most easy menu system
but the Motorola is all about getting used to it thats all. The quality
of the camera is also very good and much simpler to use than other camera
phones I have had. Overall I am happy and would suggest this to anybody
looking for a new phone, also most people I know now carry the latest
Nokia so its nice to be different! At first I did have the same problems
as most people here but i then checked out Mike's soloution and hey
presto it now connects fine all you need to do is change the settings
below on the O2 option in the web sessions list. Change Service Type
1 to HTTP and Port 1 to 8080. One thing before I got it to work by using
the above fix I downloaded settings from Motorola website but they didnt

Jan 19, 2004 Good phone - I just got it today and was a little disappointed.
Voice quality seems good as are standard phone functions including speaker
phone. No problems with call dropping. Bluetooth headset works fine.
I initially had problems synchronizing with outlook but i think that
was at the PC end with the Motorola software.... no issues with the
phone. I must say that the Motorola menus are the worst. After having
used Nokia (6820) and Sonyericsson (T68, R520) and now the Moto V620,
I'm almost tempted to go back to Nokia or better yet Sony ericsson.
Very difficult to find things in the MotoMenu. The suprising disappointment
(at least I did not expect this) - the phone does not automatically
update the clock. I travel a lot and it's a nice to have to have the
phone clock automatically updated. Since I bought the phone direct-market
i.e. not through the service provider, it did not have a voicemail nuber
programmed in. I entered it and possibly entered it wrong but now I
cannot change it. The menu option to change it is missing. If I'm missing
something and anybody has a way around for my problems let me know.
In case anybody needs more info send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Great phone. Just wish I had been told when we got it that O2 doesn't

talk to each other??? Motorola should make it clear which networks support
this new phone and if they don't yet, when will this be resolved. Put
my daughters Orange SIM card in and that works fine with download music

Ok. well what can i say about this phone other than .....disapointing.
Im not saying its not a good phone but it definetly should be better.
To start with, only 5mb of space, whats that about and no option for
a memory card. Very poor. Also they really should have sorted out the
gprs now. Its been a while now and there is no excuse why this should
not have been resolved. (not sure if motorola or o2 are to blame). Also
there are small slighty annoying features on the phone. one is that
even if i turn my bluetooth power to on, its still isnt and people can
only send me things if i click on "find me". The bottom row of number
buttons also dont work very well and tend to stick. The only other small
problem is the fact it keeps crashing when i get calls somtimes and
refuses to ring. Also if i set a ring tone to patrticular number its
will also play this if they text me. Quite annoying. Almost slighty
more annoying is the fact that just in feb only about 2-3 months after
its relase motorola are relising a v635 with all these problems sort
e.g space for a memory card and a colour screen on front of phone, but
they havnt even sorted out the v620 problems yet. Anyway is an ok phone
but personally i wish i had stumped up an extra 40quid for the nokia
7610. my friend has one and its reliable, works and has no problems
with it, plus there are plenty of wallpapers and themes to download,
(not that it would make i differnce if there were lots for the motorola
cos we cant get on the gprs to get them anyway)

Got this phone a week ago and have to say it rocks,from the ease of
use to the camera and video quality it is tops. and for all of you out
there with wap and mms problems fret no more as today (12.01.05) O2

will give you all the settings you need over the phone if you are still

This could be a great phone - it's a shame they decided to sell a internet
ready device that cannot connect to the internet, which in my book is
blatant fraud. 2 stars cos it looks the business. More to follow perhaps
if they can sort out the issues with the damn thing. For anyone like
myself who doesn't know diddly about mobiles this is a complete rip
off (phone the call center...like that helped). Does anyone know how
to send messages out using bluetooth on it?

Hi guys i got this phone for christmas but before i bought it i read
everyones reviwes on this page first and now i have my own detailed
analysis of the phone which i noticed some points people hadn't mentioned
yet. The facts are that this phone looks so good, very stylish, good
quality colour (over 260,000 when most phones have 60,000), and camera
is brill. However i am not happy with the memory size with only 5 MB.
If your into storing long videos then forget it, because this phone
simply can't hold much i could probably fit 3 full videos that i have
taken from my phone (there are two options to choose from mms size video
which is just a few seconds and u can send it in an mms message or maximum
where it goes for about 20 seconds but is too big to send in an mms.
i was also disappointed that this phone didn't have an mp3 player but
the fact is it would only really be able to hold 1 song because of the
memory and the fact it is a clam phone, probably doesnt have the space
to hold an mp3 player in it anyway. although it doesn't have an mp3
player it plays mp3 ring tones and you can actualy play mp3 tunes if
u can get it transferred to your phone, my friend transferred a song
to it through Bluetooth on his PDA but after that it was like 92% full,
lol and i had to delte my videos to fit it on there. As i said not enough
space. Also alot of people have complained about setting up mms. i had
the same problem but what made it even harder was that the 02 network
for mms had crashed over christmas so no one could send them. seeing
as this phone came with no settings at all (which is totally stupid)
then you should go to your networks local shop. i'm on o2 and i went
to their website and set the settings for a different phone but it still
worked for the v620. My final conclusion is that i'm glad i bought this
phone, colours and camera is great i really love it i just wish it had
more space on it apart from that it looks great and is easy to use when
you have used it for a little while. More space would of give it 6 out
of 5 muaha. thanx, gav

Just bought the Motorola V620 as a replacement for my Nokia 6260, which
I sold. I can honestly say I prefer the V620! It feels much more solid
and well constructed than the Nokia, with a better quality camera and
screen. I can't fault this phone so far (but it's still early days),
although if I want to be picky the 0 (zero) key is a little bit hard
to push due to the lip underneath it. Without the aerial this phone
would be nigh on perfect, IMHO. I like the size and shape of this handset
much more than my old Nokia 6260, which really was a bit of a brick.
Fair enough it had the features of a small PC, but in reality you never
really use half of them. I mean a VPN client! get real. So, in conclusion,
a great quality phone which should meet all the needs of 95% of people.

look, i just want to say where you ALL CAN SEE that there IS, i repeat
THERE IS a way to have multiple numbers or phonebook entries UNDER ONE

in the phone book, you just hit left or right to see the different numbers.
i have 3 different work numbers in my phone, ALL UNDER ONE NAME. it
doesn't say my company's name 3 times. only once. this is on all of
the v series phones. i am SICK of reading about people complaining about
this when it says in the manual how to change it!
