My Motorola L7 SLVR

I had been drooling over this phone for about 4 months now since I saw it on phone scoop. I got one about 2 weeks ago and this AM I saw an article on MacNN that said Cingular would be releasing the L7 with iTunes. It sux that the version that I have does not have either a headphone jack or iTunes. I speculate that not having one would preclude you from the other.Motorola L7

Anyway, I picked up mine on eBay through moe9918 for $250 about $50 less than anyone else was asking. He / She has ones for the same price with SD cards and headsets now, oh well.

I do have a couple of gripes about the phone, but overall it is an excellent phone.

The biggest problem that I had was configuring MMS (picture) messaging. T-Mobile‘s tech service was exceptional with helping me get this phone setup. This is not only a phone that they do not sell, but it is a very new phone and they fixed me up in about 30 minutes. The only reason that it took so long was because I had to get to level3 tech support.

  1. i am seriously considering buying this now that it’s out for the US market and with iTunes. What do you think of the user interface? i have been using sony ericsson k700i and i like the way the menus are arranged (very intutive). also, how does it interfaces with isync. have you done that?
    thanks for answering my questions?

  2. Juan, I really can’t talk too intelligently about the SE phones in comparison. I enjoy the Moto phones, however, I was not subject to the RAZR interface that I hear everyone complain about.

    The SLVR is fast and seems to have the same basic interface as the V600 that I had previously.

    Pros: Fast, small, seems to be scratch resistant, feels solid (quality), talk quality, did I say talk quality?

    Cons: poor camera, mediocre video, some configuration hastles if you get an unlocked version, no headset plug

    Are you able to use it with iSync to sync your phone list/contacts, calendar, etc?

    Also, have you tethered it to dial-up over bluetooth and GPRS?

  4. I have gotten it to sync easily with the USB port, but not Bluetooth. When you set it up you get some odd error message that says “No supported services found on selected device.” That being said I haven’t gotten to try the dial-up stuff.

    Kind of odd, but it works fine with USB, and its faster.

    If you find anyone that has gotten it to work, please let me know. I just don’t have time to mess with it right now.

  5. No, I haven’t managed to get it working via Bluetooth. I messed with it for quite a while and guessed that I should stop before I went insane.

    If you have any luck, or find any pointers let me know.

    Can you post the T-mobile settings. I’ve goten the GRS settigs working, but the MMS settings are driving me crazy

  7. @andrew; I can post my settings, but I had to get t-mobile to actually SMS me a configurtation file. The settings did not work when I entered them myself. They were great about doing that, although it did take about 30 minutes on the phone.
