TORONTO, May 6 /CNW/ - Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), a global leader in

Much style, Much function:

mobile is poised to deliver a feature-rich mobile experience, with
faster speeds for easier downloading*, sharing* and storage of fun
content - whether that is a video clip from MuchMusic programming or
an MMS* message from friends

original creation using the V186M's MotoMixer, MP3s will sound crystal
clear
- Say it loud: The built-in speakerphone lets the whole gang get in on
the action
- Cover art: The V186M is a chic, compact flip phone and each handset
comes packaged with a bonus MuchMusic wood grain bezel

I guess this replaces the Motorola V551 MuchMusic edition phone. But don't be fooled. Lots and lots of stuff on that phone have extra fees attached. I have a V551 with access to all sort of stuff MuchMusic, but everything has a transfer fee.

I miss my Nokia... It had an infrared port and the PC software was downloadable for free. Everything is extra with Motorola and for a nice fee too. They couldn't even include a belt clip with my V551.

Sooo True, its one of my pet peeves with Telus Mobility, everything ringtone, image, game whatever they want you to pay for and its usually fairly pricey for what is offered

There is only a 'transfer fee' if you download or send ringtones, images etc. through the network. You can install ringtones, images and games on the V551 with Bluetooth or USB, or the V186 with USB free of charge.

Which goes to my second paragraph. Did you read it?

"I miss my Nokia... It had an infrared port and the PC software was downloadable for free. Everything is extra with Motorola and for a nice fee too. They couldn't even include a belt clip with my V551."

And if you read my first paragraph, I spoke of the MuchMusic thingies.

You need MOT's software to enable the phone over USB. Google it, or download the trial version from MOT.
