motorola’s moto phone portal app – download here

yessir, the mysterious moto phone portal is still around.  discovered back in october 2009, the news of this program leaked out and people were initially excited, and then for some reason quickly forgot about it.  it’s still alive my friends!

wonder what the moto phone portal is?  this is basically your best friend if you are one of the motorola droid users unable to sync your device via usb cable to your computer.  and for the rest of us, this just makes life easier!

moto phone portal allows you to connect wirelessly to a pc (any pc) and do a ton of amazing things.  via wi-fi, it doesn’t get any easier than this really.

here is the list of features…

  • backup and restore contacts
  • check call logs and sms
  • send sms via browser
  • set ringtones
  • play music to your phone
  • manage photos
  • manage bookmarks
  • manage browsing history
  • transfer files from phone to pc wirelessly

installation instructions:
1.  go into settings -> applications and check the “unknown sources” box.
1a. if you do not already have astro file manager, download now in the market.
2.  visit this post from your phone’s browser.
3.  tap and download this file onto your phone:  MotoPhonePortal.zip
4.  tap on the downloaded application once it has finished.
5.  tap on “PersonalPortal029” and then “Open App Manager” when prompted.
5.  tap “install” and then “open” when finished.
6.  it will then provide instructions for syncing to pc.

*note* – to use the file manager, you have to connect via internet explorer.  (yes it sucks, but firefox doesn’t support this feature right now.)

    MUITÍSSIMO OBRIGADO. Utilizei no Quench que é uma porcaria para transferir contatos e funcionou. Não dependo mais do Blur e posso atualizar a Rom.

    Does any one have this for the Droid bionic?

      This does work perfect on my Droid Bionic! opened with ES File Explorere and the APK installed and worked flawlessly.

    I’m trying to complete this download, however there is no “unknown sources” box on my phone in the settings. I have a Motorola Backflip. Am I missing something?!

       apparently,, AT&T is not allowing their customers from downloading apps not in the android market for our protection so we cannot download this particular app.. FML.
