Can someone help me find a phone that plays video?

by esquirefender / January 21, 2006 2:18 PM PST

I am looking for a phone that can play video. I don't want to capture video, I want to be able to take video off my computor and be able to play it on the phone. It needs to be able to take Verison Wireless. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

phone that makes video calls

Go and check the vPhone 1.04. This software allows to make and receive voice and video calls.

The Verizon Moto Razr should be able to do that. I know the GSM version had video playback so I assume the same for the Verizon one.

Vib & Ring

Can the Razr vibrate and ring? If so, can someone explain to me how to set it. If not, are there any software upgrades that can be made to enable it to do so?

There is a way to get vibe and ring

In order to do this though you have to modify the phone's programming manually and it is a risky procedure if you don't do it exactly right.

As for your other question, you can unlock fuctions such as picture and ringtone transfers easily by using the mobile phone tools program from motorola. Set the phone type manually to V3cm. that's it
