I have the V180 and have stored the address book in the phones memory. Is
there an easy way to move it to the sim card?

Thanks, Steve

speed things up a bit . . . open the Address Book, press the Menu
button (which will take you to the Phonebook Menu), select Copy,
select All to SIM. It looks like you'll then have to delete all the
old ones individually, but that's faster than having to edit each one
individually.

I'm not positive about the v180, but on other MOT phones:

Edit address book entry ... one of the options is "Store to", phone/sim

I saw that option but I was hoping for a way to move the address book in one
operation instead of having to do it for all 80+ entries.

I think you can because my v188 asks if I want to do 'ALL' and it
will.

Thanks for the replys. I used the copy method as suggested and it worked
fine. It did leave me with double entrys in the address book but that's ok.
I'm having problems with the phone and will have a new one tomorrow. Now all
I have to do is put the sim card in it and go.

Thanks

On my V180 I go into phonebook and press the menu button and it gives an
option to 'copy all' to SIM.
Mind you I have been mucking around with SEEM 0032_0001 offset 58 bit6 so
maybe that's how I have it listed.

You wouldn't mind sharing on here what problems you were having with your
V180 would ye?
It would be nice to see what common problems happen with the V180 for future
reference. Some people have complained about the outer LCD panel failing or
cracking for no reason after a short amount of time on the V180 as being a
common thing which doesn't sound very good!

I have two V180's which are four months old. When turning on the phone that
I am having problems with, the LCD screen doesn't illuminate. For a couple
of days I found that if I removed the battery and replaced it the phone
would work. A couple of times when I got it going the text on the screen was
jumbled. Yesterday I couldn't get it turned on. I called Cingular and will
have a new phone today. My opinion, the V180 is a good sounding phone with
excellent battery life but it looks and feels flimsy. My previous Motorola
and Nokia phones have lasted me around five years. Looking at what's
available I doubt if many of the phones around today will last that long.

Here's one that I could not get solved:

When using "shortcuts", the phone goes haywire - creating the first
shortcut, it comes-up in the list as #2. Then when another shortcut is
created, it goes completely inert ... can't exit menu, can't turn it off,
except by taking out the battery. When turned-on, the phone works fine
unless you try to access the shortcut menu ... take out the battery again.

Only cure I found was to do a master reset/clear.

This is not only one phone. Got Cingular to replace it ... exactly same
symptoms. Cingular got really hissy and wanted me to buy another phone or
send it back and be without service until it was returned.

Gave up. It's my wife's phone and she admits to being a "technological
retard" ... does'nt use any of the phone features.

Years ago I bought a Motorola T191. Loved the size of it and the features
and found it much better than the N*kia's around at that time, I thought it
was the biz. Then after a short while it started playing up big time with
jumbled display or only half a display and freezing up. The only way to
rescue it was to remove the battery everytime it did that. Read loads of
reviews saying the T191 suffered from this problem, but Motorola would not
accept the problem - so decided that I would never buy Motorola product ever
again.

What did I do about a few weeks ago, yep you guessed it I bought a Motorola
V180 - I hope this one lasts longer than my old T191 did.

Hi:

I wonder if there are different firmware / software releases with the V180
phones. We have 2 V180 phones since Dec 24. and the software works fine.
No shortcut problems. Did have a hardware problem on one and they promptly
replaced it.

Now, we also have 2 V220's. On one, the LCD inside screen cracked/bled. I
used the phone, hung up, placed it on my belt clip, opened it 5 minutes
later and the screen had bled internally. Motorola says not under warranty
even though I did absolutely nothing to the phone. Bought a new screen
online ($23 includes shipping) and will replace the screen soon.

My daughters V220 will not let her change the ringtone (can not get into
menu) so something software wise is screwed up. Will need to do a reset.
BUT, MPT will not show her pictures in the directory so can not save and
therefore she won't let me do the reset! Something about not enough
WhiteSpace....Have to look that up online.

I've had mine about six months and no problems here with the LCD panel. I
tend to keep mine protected in a case, though, when not using it, so that
helps. The shortcut lockup thing I noticed in the beginning when I first
got it, but then I found I didn't use but one shortcut anyway (for alarm),
and I let the v180 have its way and set it at 2. I have had the phone
freeze on me once, but that was after dropping it on the kitchen floor.
Taking the battery out and putting it back in fixed it, so I don't know if
it froze from the impact or if the battery just came loose, but hey - the
LCD didn't break or crack, so maybe it's the early batches of them that had
that problem.
