Question about Motorola Mobility W375 Cellular Phone
Hello, My daughter just got her first cell phone: a Net 10 Motorola W375 that apparently - I just discovered the hard way - won't connect to her PC by their own design. They want you to use your calling minutes to download photos and ringtones instead of making it a simple, logical download to/from your PC. Nor do they tell you this up front. Does anyone know of a way to re-enable the logical feature of being able to connect your cell phone to your PC if you own this phone?
I have the same issue. I read everything very carefully before purchasing this phone with Net10 service and this was not stated anywhere. What good is it to have a camera phone if there is no way to download the photos to my computer? Makes the phone pretty much useless for all but basic phone service. Today I set up an account with Verizon and ordered a new phone through them. I will use up the minutes remaining on my Net10 account and then I'm through with them. You get what you pay for I guess. Should have known it was too good to be true.

I just bought this phone for my birthday. Well..............it's a phone and that's about it. :( I wish I could transfer ringtones out to it, but I've had no luck. I tried converting WMA's to MP3's, MP3's to AMR's and sending them to my phone via e-mail. No luck. For MP3's after downloading the e-mail, the phone says it removed the attachment because it is not supported. Hmmmm.....When I sent the AMR via e-mail, half way through downloadingit, it says "Fail".
I contacted Motorola and they told me I need to spend $35.00 on the new Motorola Phone Tools version 5. They have no idea what Net10 has done to the phone. So it may be a waste of time and money! Here's the scoop: $60.00 for the phone, $15.00 for the usb cable, and $35.00 for the software. Look at Boost Mobiles' new unlimited plan for $50.00 a month for $119.00 to purchase(with first month free). It's a razor-like phone that has bluetooth. As far as I know, blue tooth has all the capabilities we're all looking for.
The only thing of it is, is that you pay $50.00 a month. Yet, how much time do we spend talking, downloading, and messaging. How many of you already HAVE been spending $30.00 to $50.00 a month on Net10? We have to really think about this people, I particularly don't agree with Net10 prohibiting their phones just to make us resort to ther content. It's not right. 30 minutes for a ringtone($3.00).
Other catch, the phones' memory allowance for additional storage space is 500 kb. If you download a song from Net10, it may go to the downloaded and preloaded section though. Which is around 1,000 kb. One song might be 200 kb! Ugh, WTF??? Right? You decide.
In the end, it's a phone and that is it. I got it because it was a birthday present to myself. Well, I deserve better. I hate talking on the phone anyway, so it is for emergencies. I just wish I could use it to help enjoy life a little more when everythings' not chaotic, know what I mean?
