There are no new firmwares currently available for the Z8

Question

hi there.

i am looking for any advice regarding themes on the phone (motorola z8)
i got really bored of the 2 standard themes so i found a few on the internet and downloaded them and saved them onto the phone, now this is where the problem comes in, i have absolutely no idea how to get the phone to recognise the skin/theme. when i go into the thems in the settings it still only displayed the two standard ones and if i try save the skin in an alternate location, it doesnt seem to make a difference

please any help wud be greatly appreciated

mattpoon: I don't think there's any other way to end applications

chadbulloch: go in the file manager and "view" the themes, it'll offer you an option to install them.

d4n958GB: Z10 came out recently, at least in the UK.

Hey everyone. I just registered on this site a few minutes ago and thought I'd try to make a contribution. I know a few of the questions in this thread are really old by now but I noticed some of them are still unanswered. Hopefully I can provide some answers as I've been around the block and back with my z8.

The only thing i cant do is make a call as it prompts me for pin.

Surely this cant be normal as most other device's dont let you get anywhere near personal info without the pin!-Is this a security breech in moto's os maybe?
This is not a security issue. A sim pin code isn't actually meant to block a phone, merely restrict access to the sim. All the other phones have it wrong lol. The Nokia 6085 works the same. Without a pin you can't access any network functions like sending sms, making calls, using internet, access info stored on sim like contacts and sms etc. but you can access the phone itself.

Unfortunately this is true. And its the feature I miss most about my last phone. However, because this phone runs an OS there are various applications that can be integrated to address this issue with minimal hassle, unlike the java based v3i.

And I cant do anything with that, its still the same name :/ I tried everything....
There's a glitch with certain firmwares that require you to turn your bluetooth on before you can change the name. You probably have one of these firmwares. So turn your bluetooth on, change the name, save the settings and turn your bluetooth off again. The name should stick now.

New firmware was released subsequent to this post.

Simply copying the theme to your phone won't do anything. You have to install them.
Locate the theme file on your phone or memory card, click view, options, install (or at least I think those are the option names lol, typing this off the top of my head). The themes should appear in the themes list now and you can use them in setting up your new profiles.

Its the z10 lol. Its uiq 3.2 on top of symbian 9.2. The planned semi touch screen 5mp uiq 3.3 z12 is likely to be scrapped with the death of uiq and motorolas new interest in android.

Sorry for the long post lol. I didnt wanna spam and post lots of replies. Hope I helped a bit.

well...

...I had the same problem, after a total software update. But to my surprise, I could go to PHonebook> Options> Select > Select All and when I selected all, it came out : " copy all SIM into phone ?"

A friend of mine had no problem: as soon as he inserted his SIM and went browsing the PHbook, after some time a yellow banner came up, to ....invite hime tocopy all numbers as contacts !!

My word for it, it's the very last time I'm buying a new moto...I regret the Microtacand Startac times...

Unhappy

I have a question.
I've got a Motorola Z8,
And if i want to call someone,
The mobile doesn't show my number they said but only a blank display,
and if i turn number recognition on, he still doesn't see a number or a name in the other display of who i want to call
thanks
