The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 80 full-color display that can display pictures, time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The VGA camera lens is housed above this display. Up/down buttons are placed on the left side for volume control while a voice button on the right side of the unit allows you to enter voice memos and create voice dialing profiles. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's backlit control pad, which is precision cut from a single sheet of nickel-plated copper alloy. A charging port and USB data cable port is placed on the bottom of the phone.

Calling Features
The RAZR V3's internal phone book can hold up to 1000 contacts while the phone's picture ID system allows you to assign pictures to your most common callers.

A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear while voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names.

Because the RAZR V3 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation.

Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. iTap text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet is easy with the RAZR V3 as it supports Cingular's GSM-based Wireless Internet Express service. When used with a Cingular data plan and the phone's Bluetooth or USB data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the RAZR V3 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar and an alarm clock.

Capture stills and then send them to your friends via MMS messaging or email, or to your PC via USB or Bluetooth. The phone is capable of MPEG4 video playback when you receive a video message, or if you upload video to the phone via USB or Bluetooth.

Support for gaming is built into the phone and games are available for download via the Cingular MEdia service.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad phone for mommy
My mommy got this phone. my dad yells at her why she spent so much money on it cuz it isnt very good. i think it looks weird . it also isnt very load like one timemy mom had it in her purse thing and it rang and she missed the callbecuase she couldnt here the ringing!!!!!!!It is a very bad item thhing my mom is gonna sell it on ebay!!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Great look: Battery power HORRIBLE
yes I agree with most of you: the RAZR is definitely sleek looking and such.I've barely had it for a month and already I'm disappointed.Seems I am always charging this phone even though I do not 'clock in the time'.The large screen is great; the fact you can put it in your backpocket and almost forget it's there is nice, too.But so far I am not impressed.. yes Nokia does make better phones....

3-0 out of 5 stars Paying for the looks only
I got this phone about a week ago and sure, it's thin, it's cool looking but in the end, it's just a phone. I was deciding between the V3 and a nokia 6230. I really think i should've gone with the nokia.

- The V3's speakerphone isn't that loud. I turn it on and end up turning it back off because i can hear better without it.

- The phone has a slim profile but it's actually pretty large. it's just thin. When it's open, it looks huge against your face.

- The buttons are flat and takes used to using. This is especially true if you like to text message a lot, like me. The upside to this is that Motorola's iTap software is really nice to use compared to my old samsung.

- Yes, it has a large screen. but when you use it, oils from your face get all over it. the oils from your fingers get on the keys which transfer to the screen.

- no games unless you want to connect to the internet. BUMMER!!

- crappy ring tones. again, you'll have to pay for better ones.

The nice thing about cingular is that yes, you have good reception, mobile to mobile, and rollover. The bad thing is they totally rip you off in text messages compared to t-mobile.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Phone
I'm up in the North East and Cingular is great up here.I have had them for several years now and have tried other cell phone providers, but they are the best I think.This phone is great.I have had it for six months now and it works great.Reception is great, I get a signal in areas where other phones I have had I couldn't.I have dropped it several times and still not a scratch due to the metal housing.Great screen.Bluetooth works well.Phone is very loud.The battery life is great.I have read where some people say it is horrible.I'm on the phone all the time and I have never used up the battery to go under two bars.Great phone.The one drawback I found was Cingular will not insure the phone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it
I have had the Motorols Razor V3 for about 3 months. I have had no problems with it. I have taken it everywhere Hawaii, Flordia, France, London, and the UK(and i only had like 1-2 groped calls over there) I would really recomend this phone to anyone. and I love Cingular Wireless i had att wireless then they combined and it is even better. The Bluetooth is easy to set up to. ... Read more

For those times you want to keep things discreet, there's also a vibrate ringer mode. The phone's Bluetooth connectivity means that your favorite Bluetooth headset is fully compatible.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The A630 has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging and Internet connectivity. When coupled with the built-in keyboard, you've got a mobile communication powerhouse. The phone features support for AOL Instant Messenger (T-Mobile messaging charges apply) and there's a built-in web browser for t-zones downloads and mobile web browsing.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok Phone with lots of problems
I bought this phone 2 months ago. It is really cute and beautiful phone...but I have been noticing some problems in the phone down the time...I would like to share them with everyone...

Pros:

1) The phone looks pretty good. Everyone gets attracted by the phone.
2) The cute little keyboard is great for SMS (but big hand fellows see the Cons section)
3) Battery life is fine for me. I am not a frequent call maker so it's ok to me
4) Easy Volume control (over the side of the phone)
5) Blue tooth technology is great. I transferred some ringtones from another Motorola phone easily.
6) Voice clarity is good (not the speaker, see the Cons section)
7) The screen shows many little icons explaining several things (the phone ring style, battery life, signal, Bluetooth etc). Those icons are really cool and self explanatory...

Cons:

1) The biggest problem is the phone calls get disconnected automatically every 10 or 11 minutes. I called the customer service and found out that it's the bug in the phone. We need to switch it off and switch it on everyday to get rid of that problem. I am doing that. Now I don't have the problem. But this is really weird and funny that we need to do something to keep the phone good...ridiculous. My laughs for the Motorola's software team of this product.
2) The keyboard is good but not that good. It is not suitable for big hands. You will feel uncomfortable typing some keys especially the ones in the top row. The menu navigation is also not that easy.
3) The speaker phone is really cool feature but the volume really sucks.
4) One big hassle I am facing is "Call Waiting", "Conference". It is a nightmare to attend a call which is waiting or setup a conference. Several times, I have ended up linking the 2 incoming calls without my knowledge. When you are in a call and if you get a new incoming call, you won't be able to put all the calls on conference. You can only do switching between calls or linking those 2 other calls (not you). For example, if you are on a call say CALL1 and you are receiving CALL2. Now there is no way you can disconnect CALL1. During call waiting, the disconnect button will be used as the Link between CALL1 and CALL2. So if you try to disconnect CALL1, you will end up linking CALL1 and CALL2. Hassle, Hassle, Hassle and it is more complicated in conference calls...you cannot make conference call without opening the flipflop....ok enough....too many issues here....
5) As usual with other phones, the screen display is not properly visible during day time.
6) Ok, one more big problem. You can't get a carry case for this model very easily. It's very hard to get the one which fits perfectly. I got Krussel carrying case which is ok. But even I am finding difficulties connecting my charger to the phone when it is in the case. The Case cost itself will be more than 20 dollars...it is so delicate that you definitely need a case.
7) I could find several small software bugs all over the phone whenever I start exploring it.
8) Searching the phonebook is limited to only first character of the entry

Unknown:

1) I used camera but I have not transferred the photos to computer so no comments
2) I did not use Bluetooth technology that extensively
3) I never used the phone for chat or emails I use it only for SMS.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good phone overall!
I've only had this phone for a few days, but I love it already.It's a bit difficult to get used to the Motorola after using an LG for a few years (mainly because the "send" and "end" button positions are reversed) but overall, this phone is easy enough to use.My only complaints thus far are that when using the phone closed, the earpiece volume is not very loud, even when turned up to the max.Usually this is not a problem, but if you are using the phone in a loud environment you will have a hard time hearing the person on the other end.Another drawback is that as far as I know, you can only use the speakerphone with the flip open, and only on incoming calls.I've only flipped through the manual briefly, but the only thing I could find on how to activate the speakerphone was to open the flip while receiving an incoming call.The camera is okay, no better or worse than the quality of any other camera phones I have owned (I don't think the quality on camera phones is very good in general).I use text messagingA LOT so the QWERTY keyboard is a huge plus on this.It's very easy to use as the buttons are just big enough that they aren't awkward to use.At the same time, they aren't so large that the overall size of the phone is enormous, which is another big plus.This phone is just slightly larger than the LG VX6100 flip phone I was using before- definitely not as big or bulky as I was expecting it to be.The best thing about this phone is that you can use it closed, like a standard "candy bar" shaped phone, or use it with the flip open to access more features.Another plus is that the LCD screen on the outside is actually very functional, compared to that on other phones- you can scroll through contacts and read text messages without even opening the phone!I would give this phone a 5 star rating if not for the low earpiece volume and somewhat strange speakerphone operation.

1-0 out of 5 stars It suckz!
It looks cute but it's not a phone u would use everyday. The first time I got it, it wouldn't charge after just a week. I tried all the chargers we had and when we really couldn't charge the phone, we returned it to the dealer we got it from and they exchanged it because it was defective. After 6 months, now I'm having the same problem with charging it. The batt is dead and I can't even exhange it anymore. My other friends who has the same phone as me has the same problem with it too. I don't recommend it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Problem phone very disappointed.......
I got this A630 phone this year January, at the begining it was a great phone althought the keyboard button was too small for my long nail I still love the big name "Motorola" and all those gadgets that comes with the phone.However, after three months of usage the phone will shut off automatically after conversations.After a week later the phone basically not working and dies out.So I toke it back to T-Mobile they sent me a refurbiush phone.OK, less than 2 weeks same problem again, phone was dead.Toke it back to T-Mobile, they test it out and they said it was not the battery itself, it was the phone, so here we goes again they sent me another refurbuish phone. Now not long ago my phone went dead again with fully chagred battery.3 times in a roll, I am giving up with this model.I did not abuse my phone at all, did not drop it on the ground or in the water, I just used it for regular conversions with my family.People who consider to purchase this phone be very careful, I am extremely disappointed with this model.I am still a big fan of "Motorola", but would not recommend this model for other people, flip phone is still the best after all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Grat phone. Great service.
I cannot be happier with this phone. The only problem with it is the fact that it is thicker then normal phones and is not good for carrying around in jeans pockets, which does not bother me since I prefer to carry it in a leather case anyway.

If you've owned a motorola phone before you will not have any problems with the interface (if you haven't and can't figure things out, this is what the manual is for). Contrary to what some people are saying you can specify if a phone number is for a cell, work, home etc phone. However, if you need to use that functionality you must store your phone numbers on the phone memory and not the SIM card. (SIM cards can only hold simple phone info)

The bluetooth works great - I use it with a HS850 headset.

I also love the keyboard, entering data to phone is very very easy. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Motorola delivers Bluetooth, a megapixel camera, video messaging, TransFlash memory expansion and more in this flagship phone. Designed for Verizon Wireless users, all the tools and power a mobile warrior needs are packed into this premium tri-band clamshell.

Design

Click the image to get a closer look at the v710's features.
The V710's overall shape is similar in design to Motorola's high-end GSM phone, the V600. The V710 ups the ante in many areas, however. The internal 2.2-inch 176 x 220 screen sports more colors (262,000 vs. 65,000) than the V600. The full-color, 98 x 67 supplementary external display is another step-up feature from the V600. This screen displays incoming call information, picture caller ID, camera self portraits, signal strength, battery life, current time and more. The 1.2 Megapixels camera lens and LED flash is housed above this display. An extendable stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the phone. A TransFlash memory slot is located next to the antenna. A standard 2.5mm stereo headset jack is present, as is a combined charging/USB data port. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad.

Calling Features
The V710 boasts some powerful calling functions that make it a perfect part of a mobile office. The office-quality speakerphone makes it easy to converse without touching the handset-- a big plus for car users. Enhanced voice dialing supports voice-to-digit dialing and name recognition for speedy dialing of contacts. The V710s voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user's voice. Because the V710 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation.

The V710's 10 MB of internal memory can be used to hold up to 500 contacts for quick access to email addresses and phone numbers. The phone lets you easily assign pictures to your most common callers. In addition to vibrating alerts, the phone supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Verizon's Mobile Web service. The V710's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The V710 is a mobile messaging, email and Internet powerhouse. An included email client supports POP3, SMTP and IMAP4 email standards (when used with optional Verizon data service). The V710's support for multimedia messaging means that text, photos, video and audio can be sent with ease (Verizon messaging charges apply). When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. There's also a built-in web browser for Verizon Mobile Web downloads and mobile web browsing. Verizon's optional Mobile Web package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. You can check your e-mail, trade stocks online, compare prices while shopping, access flight information, get movie listings and find directions to the theater. iTap text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the V710. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools. You can also personalize your handset with ringtone downloads and digital photo-sharing tools using the Get It Now service.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V710 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar and an alarm clock. And you can use the V710's Bluetooth capability to set up a wireless link with your favorite Bluetooth headset accessory.

Imaging and Entertainment
Plenty of good times are built right into this handset, and that fun is expandable thanks to the V710's TransFlash memory expansion slot. The slot supports an additional 128 MB of memory in addition to the phone's embedded 10 MB of memory. The V710's 1.2 megapixels camera with flash bridges the gap between phones and quality digital cameras. Support for up to 3 minutes of video capture is also included. An MP3 player lets you load up your favorite tunes and use the phone as a portable jukebox. Embedded animated screensavers and full screen wallpapers are built-in so you can set up the V710 to suit your tastes.

The V710 is BREW enabled, meaning it supports games written on the BREW platform. Games are available via the Get It Now service.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola V710 weighs 4.06 ounces and measures 3.70 x 1.93 x .92 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.33 hours of digital talk time, and up to 150 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the AMPS 800/CDMA 800/CDMA 1900 frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good phone with terrible battery life.
So I switched from T-Mobile to Verizon and am quite happy with the signal and coverage.
Verizon truly does have the best coverage around the San Francisco Bay area.
The Motorola V-710 phone stood out as a sleak and sexy piece compared to all other phones that Verizon carried. It has an amazing color screen and fantastic reception.
If you are looking for a great phone with basic features, I suggest you get it at this amazingly low price.
But I wanted something more.... Bluetooth and freedom.
The V-710 really is Verizon's crippled bluetooth phone. They have disabled all but 1 bluetooth feature.
You cant transfer images, ringtones etc to your phone. Bluetooth feature can only be used for the hedset. This really sucks.
Also I was forced to purchase the extended battery cause the 2 color screens at > 65,000 resoultion kills the available battery in under 1.5 hours.
The phone is heavy but thats normal for CDMA. It's also oversized to fit the screen and keys. Eventually you will get used to it.
There are pro's and con's....... But overall I am happier now than I was with my Sony Ericcson T-610 running off T-Mobile.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Phone is Awesome, but Nothing is Ever Perfect
Everything has its pros and cons.The V710 reception far outweighs the crappy camara any day!

Pros
-reception, reception, reception
-many little features that make it tick
-cool style
-it's a camara phone

Cons
-it requires a cell phone carrier to work
-the camara takes terrible pictures
-hard to find a case that doesn't interfer with opening and closing the phone (as with all flip phones)

I really like the Motorola V710 phone.I have had Verizon Wireless service for a few years now (word of advice, run if you haven't gotten stuck in with a contract) and this phone works the best on their network.I have a cronic problem of dropping calls around my house and this is the only phone that can hang on to the calls.In the past few weeks I have tried the LG VX7000, which dropped calls faster than a brick, and the Kyrocera (or however you spell it) which also drops way to many calls.I have been very happy with the V710, the camara sucks, as I am sure you have heard, but if you want a great camara, get a camara.The phone has some really niffty features on it and I am really starting to warm up to the menu, which can be just plain wierd if you are not use to it.Another thing that gives the Motorola a learning curve is the layout of the keys, but it can be a "what the heck is that" phone.All in all, I choose the Motorola because of the reception but I am finding all kinds of other features I didn't know I couldn't live without.The Motorola is an increadibly clear phone with great reception, but won't bring you the kitchen sink.The LG VX7000 is a phone that has increadibly crappy reception but does everything else with flying colors.But hey, the thing is a phone, not a butler.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone Cool Features
Recently upgraded from the v265, and wish I had purchased this in the first place. The 265 was a good phone but this phone has all the latest features, including BT. I resisted buying this phone due to the talk about limited BT functionality but realized it was just hype and I would not use anything more than the Headset or Car Kit anyway.

Beyond the features the quality of the phone take advantage of the great Verizon Network. I have had a few carriers and Verizon is the way to go. Not only is the quality much better but I actually pay less since most of my friends and contacts are on Verizon and such a high percentage of my minutes are covered under in calling. I take more advantage of this than I ever did rollover.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM
With a little more than two weeks my phone is dead with no apparent reason.I only wanted to charge but then now it's completely dead.I cannot even power on the darn thing.And with lousy verizon service you will be stuck like me.Please DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I MADE.AVOID THIS PHONE BY ANY MEANS, ESPECIALLY IF IT'S OFFERED BY VERIZON.Terrible, Terrible, Terrible.There is no other way to describe how I feel.I have never come across an electronic product that went dead after two weeks without any damage.NEVER in my life.

One other thing about verizon: I went to one of the stores and this lady tried to give me a refurbished one but then guess what? that phone did not turn on either.I wasted good one hour and half.And she said please bring the box with you and we will exchange with a new one.Today I found out that she thought I bought at one of retail verizon store.So she can only give me a refurbished one.What am I going to do with a refurbished one without any power on?Maybe they think I can just carry the dead cell phone to tell everyone how bad the phone is and how bad service I'm getting.

Anyway, until I resolve my issue, this is the most horrible experience I ever experienced with electronics.I will never buy motorola and possibly avoid verizon but at this point I have no choice.

4. Motorola V600 Phone (T-Mobile)
by T-Mobile
list price: $299.99
(price subject to change: see help)

Catlog: Wireless
Manufacturer: T-Mobile

Amazon.com Review

The tri-band Motorola V600 cell phone features Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated VGA digital camera, and MMS with video clip playback. You'll also get "Situational Lights"--a feature that lets you light colors for various types of calls--and much more, all displayed on a large, high-resolution 176 x 220 pixels, 65,000 color interior screen.

The basic Motorola clamshell format continues to provide a solid and attractive option for any dedicated cell phone user. Its steel frame is compact and attractive, (the faceplate-changing capabilities seem a bit unnecessary) and it's loaded with all the essential features you'll need for power usage plus a few bonuses. You may find the volume a bit high out of the box, and it goes into hibernate almost as fast as you can dial a number, but these are minor, adjustable quibbles on a truly stellar phone.

Calling Features

See a detailed view of the phone's features,
front and back.

Used simply as a cell phone, the V600 features a five-way navigation key with multiple dedicated function keys for easy menu navigation. Primary calling features include voice dialing, integrated speakerphone, vibrate mode, call timers, redial, missed call indicator, call log, any-key answer, auto-answer, auto-redial, roaming indicator, speed dial, linked (credit card) dialing, phonebook look-up, phonebook scroll, mute control, no-answer transfer, one-touch 911, system select, usage alert, and a phone book of up to 1250 entries, including picture caller ID functionality. When the phone is closed, its external screen (two lines, 96 x 32 pixelss) displays caller ID, date, time, and various status icons, including text message waiting, voice message waiting, battery and signal strength, and voice and message mail. There's even a blue backlight on the secondary display for nighttime viewing.

The V600 sports well-placed, well-machined keys, and its compact size does nothing to hinder dialing even for large-fingered users. The solid scroll keys bring you to very intuitive menus presented nicely on a single screen, marked by functional but showier-than-necessary graphics. There are also dedicated external buttons for speaker volume, voice recording, and ring volume.

Messaging and Internet
The advanced MMS capabilities built in to the V600 enable users to send, edit, forward, and receive image, text, audio, and video messages over the wireless Internet, to and from compatible phones or PCs. (Messages can run up to 100k in size.) You'll also get instant messaging capability, messaging templates, SMS two-way messaging, conventional email, and predictive text assistance. Beyond messaging, the V600's Internet connectivity lets you access online services such as stock quotes, road directions, airline information, entertainment, and more. You can also download Java applications (version CLDC 1.0, MIDP 2.0, 100k per application limit) for which the phone provides 5 MB total (shared) memory. High-speed data transfer and download round out the package. The V600 supports digital TTY/TDD functionality for the hearing impaired.

Organizer
Organizer features include a calendar, calculator with currency converter, date book with event storage, and voice memo. You can also transfer this data to your PC wirelessly via the phone's Bluetooth capability.

We found the V600's appointment scheduling to be right in line with our fairly basic needs. Other than the universal annoyance of pecking out appointment details with the ten-key letter system (there's no QWERTY keyboard here as you'll find on some of the more recent, albeit early-adopter phones) this phone's organizer features provided enough data entry space for any busy person taking these functions seriously, but no more.

Fun and Games
For fun, the V600 sports a built-in 640 x 480 pixels integrated digital camera with zoom and brightness adjustment functions. Pictures taken with the camera can be stored in the phone or sent to others via multimedia messaging. The 5 MB of memory available for storing pictures is also shared with whatever wallpapers, screensavers, ring tones, Java applications, or games you may download from the Internet. The V600 also features 24 chord ring tone capability. Users can assign different tones for different callers in the V600's phonebook, and assign separate tones to denote incoming messages, faxes, and reminders. Wireless multiplayer gaming capabilities and two included games, "Bejeweled" and "Stuntman", round out the entertainment perks that ship with this phone.

Conclusions
We liked this phone's very basic camera. It was easy to use and worry-free and the device can be accessed instantly from the phone's top level screen menu. From power on, it only took us a moment to take and save a fairly nice picture. However, photo quality is only adequate; about as good as you'd expect for a cell phone circa 2004, as opposed to a dedicated digital camera. We also found the ring tones included with the phone to be generally pleasant, and it was a breeze to assign a custom tone to a number in the phonebook, thanks again to the easy menu system. The included games were basic and fairly fun (at least once). In "Stuntman", the phone's vibrate mode provided road rumble as a little car skidded around a bland, full-color stunt course. But player beware! Once the game starts, the volume becomes LOUD and is not apparently adjustable. Finally, there is a nutty little feature called Motomixer, which lets you modify various settings on little songs that you can download, emulating a very rudimentary, miniature studio console.

In all, we found the Motorola V600 to be a rock solid, highly effective cell phone with attractive and efficient graphic and audio capabilities. We recommend the V600 without reservations for any serious user.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola V600's security features include call restrictions, phone lock, and new password capability. The phone weighs 4.4 ounces and measures 3.46 x 1.85 x 0.91 inches. Its lithium-ion batteries are rated at up to 390 minutes talk time, and up to 175 hours standby time. It runs on the GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 frequencies. In the box, you'll receive the V600, instruction manuals, a high capacity li-ion battery, a headset/earbud, and a battery charger. ... Read more

This phone is currently one of the most used phones amongst people. I am trying to get this phone from quite a while and that too only on T-mobile plans. But due to the unavailibility of this phone from a long time, I am really not able to make finailze which phone should I go with. If this phone is made available again with T-mobile on Amazon, I will be glad to have it. It is my kind request to you that you make this phone available to your T-mobile customers soon.
Thank you

5-0 out of 5 stars great phone
This phone is a great phone. it works wonderfully and it is very pretty and sophiticated. it is also durable i have droped mine numerous times and it still works like a charm. i have had other phoen with chrome and the other's chrome have worn off but not this one. it has stayed in wornderful shape. it is an advanced phone even though it doesn't tke any videos. it still has blue toothit is color you can download rings set pictures for when people call and much more. if i had to ay one thing i didn;t like about it, i would say the outside buttons press a little more easily then i would like but that shouldn't be a deterrent from getting this phone because that hasn't been a big problem for me. i hope this reveiw helps you decide which phone to buy!!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars POS
Do not waste your money on this phone.. I think it is possibly the worst phone ever.. I wished I would have done research before I bought it.. My friends have started to make fun of me saying my new favorite word is "Whats that?".. Reception is horrible and sounds like a walkie-talkie.. I'm always checking my phones volume because I usually can't hear anything and it always is the highest it goes.. I've had so many drop calls with this phone too.. I had to call people 4 times before ending up using my house phone... I'll have my phone in my pocket and next thing I know I take it out and have 2 missed calls.. the button is easily switched from vibrate to silent and even when it is on vibrate sometimes it doesn't do it... When I'm on the phone many times it will freeze causing me to take my battery out or other times I will just be browsing on it and the screen will go white and force me to take the battery out.. I've already sent this phone in once due to the camera not working, all the pictures I took where infrared.. This is my first motorola phone so i dunno if its just this phone or all of motorola.. BEWARE...

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone Bad Rebate
The phone works well.Occasional tinny voice on the other end of the line and had an occasional white screen probably in the first week or two of ownership.Great battery-life and reception and options.I sent in the rebate form from Amazon ten weeks ago, and it seems to have disappeared.Don't depend on getting your rebate check.

1-0 out of 5 stars spare yourself the aggravation...
initially i was pleased with this phone; the camera shoots fairly good outdoor pics (though not indoors), and the phone worked well enough--for a bit, anyway. i've had to have 3 replaced now (and 2 in a 2 week period alone) for what my service provider says are 'software problems' with this phone (they don't even sell them anymore). the keypad--flat, like most phones nowadays, has no separate keys--and i had major problems with the keys being hyper-responsive or non-responsive; i also kept getting error msgs that baffled my ever-competent provider (the phone kept saying my memory was low, and yet i store nothing on it), as well as other problems, too many to enumerate. i'm now switching to samsung, albeit somewhat regrettably, because i did like this phone; but obviously there are 'fatal errors' with the phone itself. in short, think long and hard about getting one (the last one i used for about a half hour before it 'broke' again). you'd think with all the technology at our disposal that a company could make a viable phone that will not die--or even just disappoint you--within a matter of weeks, or, for me, within a half hour. so, buyer beware. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

With Bluetooth, a VGA camera and a large color display, as well as support for high speed data and video capture, the V551 is a powerful mobile companion. It's the perfect complement to Cingular Wireless service.

Design

Click the image to get a closer look at the V551's features.
The phone features a sleek clamshell design with a large 176 x 220 color display with 65,000 colors. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 32 blue monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The VGA camera lens and self-portrait mirror is housed above this display. A stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the unit, next to the phone's headset jack. Volume buttons are placed on the left side, while a one-touch camera button is on the right. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. A combined charging and USB data cable port is placed on the bottom of the phone.

Calling Features
The V551's internal phone book can hold up to 1000 contacts while the phone's picture ID system allows you to assign pictures to your most common callers. It also supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Cingular Wireless' MEdia service. There's even an included application, MotoMixer, that lets you mix your own ringtones. For times when you want to be discreet, there's a vibrating alert. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear while voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names.

Because the V551 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation. The phone supports Cingular's "Fast Forward" call forwarding device, which enables you to effortlessly forward your wireless calls to your land-line phone.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The V551 is a messaging and wireless Internet powerhouse. Support is built in for sending and receiving pictures, text, graphics, sound and video via messages. When used in combination with the phone's built-in still and video camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. Instant messaging is also supported via AOL Instant Messenger and the phone ships with a built-in email client with support for POP3, IMAP4 and SMTP protocols (Cingular messaging charges apply). There's also a built-in web browser for MEdia downloads and mobile web browsing. Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. iTap text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet is easy with the V551. It supports the GPRS protocol, as well as the new, high speed EDGE data protocol. When used with a Cingular data plan and the phone's Bluetooth or USB data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V551 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator, a calendar and an alarm clock. Use the V551's Bluetooth capability to set up a wireless link with a Bluetooth accessory or connect to a computer or hand-held device to exchange and synchronize data. The phone also supports the SyncML PC synchronization standard, which means it can be used with Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools PC application to manage and synchronize contacts, calendar and other data with your PC.

Imaging and Entertainment
The V551 shines in the entertainment department. The phone's VGA camera can capture stills and clips with up to 15 seconds of video, both of which can be sent to your friends via MMS messaging or email, or to your PC via USB or Bluetooth. The phone is capable of MPEG4 video playback when you receive a video message. Meanwhile, an included image-editing application lets you modify the pictures you take before you send picture messages. The V551 also supports custom graphics for wallpapers so you can dress up the phone to suit your fancy.

Support for gaming is built into the phone and games are available for download via the Cingular MEdia service.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola V551 weighs 4.23 ounces and measures 3.5 x 1.93 x .97 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.75 hours of digital talk time, and up to 225 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the 800/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of features; so-so quality
I've had this phone since Dec. 2004. The first one stopped holding a charge after about 6 weeks. I'd fully charge the phone and a little more than a day later, after no more than 10 minutes of talk time, the thing would be completely dead. I contacted Cingular and they shipped me a replacement very quickly.

The replacement phone holds a charge much better (6 days), but the battery-life indicator doesn't follow an even path. It shows a full charge for several days, then goes to 2 bars of charge, and then dead, all but skipping 1 bar.

The sound quality is about average. I like and use the speakerphone. Turns out I don't use some of the other features (Bluetooth, camera) as much as I expected.

Annoyingly often, the phone doesn't ring when I have an incoming call, even when I'm in an area with a strong signal. Instead, I get the "missed call" beep about 15-45 after the call occurred.

This is my third cell phone, and overall I like this phone better than my second phone but not as well as the first.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beware of Cingular Pricing and Sales
If I had not been careful, I could have paid Cingular anywhere from $25-100 for this phone within a two day period. Cingular has a serious lack of conformity between it's business units. The online price for this phone was different than the price offered by the business sales group, and different from the one offered at an official Cingular store... and I would have never known about the $50 rebate that was posted two days after I had purchased a qualifying phone if I had not happened to peruse the Cingular website. The transaction to convert 5 individual lines into a single family plan took about 4 hours to complete over the phone after being bounced from department to department.

The phone itself is fine and the camera is more usable than I had expected it to me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy direct.
Buy this phone from somewhere else -- Amazon will delay dispatching the phone and then fail to send the information to Cingular to activate the phone. The Activation instructions included with the phone are be wrong, Amazon's customer service reps will tell you wrong information to activate the phone. If you realize this you will not be able to use Cingular's automated activation service because of the first problem and it will be well over a week before you get a working phone.

2-0 out of 5 stars bad

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it
I have had it just a week now and I have yet recharged the battery. Maybe they fixed it? Yes I do talk on the phone. I was also able to use it to check my gmail, hotmail and my works email. Could get on AIM and ICQ with no problem. Camera takes ok pictures for a cell phone. Best I have seen so far. The mp3s sound great over the speaker and the speaker phone is pretty clear. Clarity is hardly an issue. Voice recording is easy...good for those sudden thoughts.

The screen is very clean IMO. Play poker on it with no problems.

I really like the phone.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't take T-Mobile
I rarely say anything is bad but trust me on this one I live in Atlanta and T-mobile service is very-very Bad here. It is not me but atleast seven of my close friends experience. You will not get signal if you get signal you will get Network busy. I have no complain about v300 phone. It is excellent but good phone can't help you if service provider (T-mobile) is so bad. My friends have different phone but all of us face same problem

No signal or Network busy. T-mobile is very bad

1-0 out of 5 stars Went Through 3 already
This phone SUCKS.I Have had to return two phones already and my third phone is already broken.The earpiece in the headset just stops working and you have to use speakerphone all the time in order to hear people.I never dropped any of my phones and always carried them in the holster given to me by t-mobile, yet they still stopped working.PIECE OF CRAP!!!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed
I also bought this phone right when it came out and spent about $180 on it even though I was a T-Mobile customer for years by then. Two years later and I've finally gotten so fed up with it that I had to get a new phone. My phone's demise was that I couldn't hear anyone anymore. It started off as a small problem about a year ago...I couldn't hear people on select calls and it was only for a few seconds before the sound kicked in. Now, I can only hear someone if I put them on speaker phone.

When I first got the phone, I had a lot of issues with it freezing. I called Customer Service, and they informed me that it was because I downloaded ringtones off of their website and my phone couldn't handle that. They wanted to completely wipe out all of the ring tones and pictures I had on my phone and reset it, after I had spent the money to purchase the ringtones off of their site. They finally agreed to give me a credit for the ringtones I had purchased before wiping them out. That seemed to clear up the problem, but then I had to use one of the phone's undesirable ringtones.

Also, when using the camera feature, I would often have a big red dot in the center of my picture. I thought it was the lense, but, I took it to a T-Mobile store, and they told me that there was something wrong internally with the phone and I needed to contact Motorola. Of course, they told me I probably had something on my lense, so I just stopped using the camera part of the phone since my year warranty was up.

When I called T-Mobile to get a new phone, they informed me that I had gotten a DEAL (spending $180 on a phone for it only to last 2 years) because it lasted a year longer than the manufacturer thought it would last.

Overall, I would not reccommend getting this phone. While I put up with the problems for a while because I spent so much on it, it absolutely was NOT worth it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible technology in this phone
I bought the v300 when it first came out, for $200 or so.A year and a half, and 4 replacement phones later, I am incredibly unsatisfied.I have had problems with the phone(s) from day one.On the first 2 phones, the battery eventually stopped charging up (within the first 2 months of purchase).On the second 2 phones, the phones screen would not work.

I love the look, weight, and structual durablility of this phone.But, the technology was worthless.Do not buy this phone

1-0 out of 5 stars Went through 2 of the same phones
The first one busted in 2 weeks, I received a replacement, then the second one (same model) busted 6 months later.

The problem was the same, I couldn't hear the person that was talking on the other end. ... Read more

The V265, which follows the traditional clamshell form factor, sports a 128 x 128, 65,000-color internal screen. A supplementary, 96 x 32 monochrome screen on the outside of the cover displays incoming call information, signal strength, battery life, current time and more. The VGA camera lens and self-portait mirror is housed above this display. Up/down buttons are placed on the left side for volume control.

Enhanced voice dialing supports voice-to-digit dialing and name recognition for speedy dialing of contacts.

A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Verizon's Mobile Web service. Perhaps most importantly for users in rural areas, the V265 is a tri-mode phone, meaning it can operate on Verizon's digital network, as well as analog networks that serve many outlying areas. Lastly, the phone's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.

Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the V265. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools.

4-0 out of 5 stars So far, so good...
None of the problems other reviewers have listed here have come up with my new phone (it has only been a week, however...)
Its a very cool looking phone with a nice, but smallish screen.
It keeps recording a terrible sounding message for the voicemail - but the people I talk to say that I sound perfectly clear on their end, so I don't know why that is happening.
As with most phones, the camera is kind of pointless - that's why you buy a camera.Phones are for phoning, cameras are for picture taking.Stop trying to get everything to do everything, and they'll work better.

1-0 out of 5 stars stylish exterior, but that's about it
I would like to say that cameras aren't important for cellular telephones, but clearly the gadget-factor is critical for phones sales nowadays and the v265 doesn't stack up to its competitors in any department (except for the speakerphone, the one feature everyone can agree upon). The battery life of the v265 is also appallingly short, as is the case with most Motorola phones, and the advanced graphics just slow the speed at which users can perform normal activities e.g. browsing the phonebook or any listfor that matter. The voice recognition is fairly good on the phone, and users don't have to pre-record voice commands in order to dial or access voicemail, but the phone's electronic integrity is questionable (the screen flickers, the exterior display goes blank e.t.c) and I do not recommend this phone for anyone but devoted phone gamers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Started off good, but 2nd one and its still a lemon
It was time for a new every two phone.Got the V265 from VZ as it was a trimode and looked cool... but the first one developed a major static problem and made it so you couldnt talk on it.. VZ sent out another new one and now only a week later it is doing the same thing.Thankfully its within the time frame of the satisifaction and VZ is changing me out to a different phone altogether.Hopefully the Kyocera will be better!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good phone, crappy camera
GOOD - Good, clear phone with easy to customize features.In addition, it has a very good speaker phone compared to similar phones, which gives you added option besides the earpiece.

BAD - Camera is absolutely horrible!Very few features, horrific resolution, and very limited brightness.Also, even if you have another motorola phone, you still can't exchange phone books.

1-0 out of 5 stars Reliability problems- do not buy!
had the identical problem as previous writer. The phone's exterior display does not recognize when the phone is closed, so it always shows "verizon" instead of the time/caller ID. This is a problem because when I open the phone, it does flicker on, then off, thus hanging up on the person! When I went to return it, the guy in the store confessed that another customer had a similar problem.
should be replaced soon. hopefully will get a good one. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Motorola's i860 is everything Nextel users have come to expect in a phone, and more. This flagship phone has all of the great features and durability of past Nextel models, plus a built-in camera and support for multimedia messaging.

Design

Click the image to get a closer look at the i860's features.
The i860 is no ordinary clamshell. Like other Nextel phones, it's built tough for construction and utilities industry users. The phone sports a very large 176 x 220 TFT color display with a stunning 262,000 colors. Meanwhile, the outside cover features a supplementary 95 x 96 color display that can display photos, images, time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The built-in camera and LED flash are located above this display. The speakerphone unit is located on the rear of the phone, while the trademark Direct Connect and menu scrolling functions can be controlled from the side of the phone. The phone's control pad also features a five-way button that can control most of the phone's functions. Finally, a small button on the hinge of the phone's flip mechanism automatically opens the phone for quick access-- a real plus if you have your hands full.

Calling Features
The i860's built-in address book can store up to 600 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses. The phone comes with built-in polyphonic ringtones plus a vibrating alert. More polyphonic ringtones can be added, as can MP3-based ringtones. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. You can also speak numbers and control other phone features with the sound of your voice. Access the last 20 sent and received calls for quick call return or number storage via the recent calls list. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear and the i860's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.

One of the key features of any Nextel phone is support for Nextel's Direct Connect walkie-talkie technology. The i860 fully supports the service, which allows for one-touch conversations with anyone else on a Nextel phone. It's like a having a CB radio with enough range to cover all of North America. The i860 also features a walkie-talkie private speaker button. This switches from the external speaker to the earpiece for private conversations or to minimize disruptions in quiet environments.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The i860 features MMS-based support for mobile-to-mobile or mobile-to-email text and photo messaging. When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the i860, as well. Nextel's optional Nextel Online package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. Nextel Online also features games, ringtones, realtime news and sports updates, virtual address books, and more-- all delivered to your Nextel phone.

Another Nextel innovation supported by the i860 is Nextel Direct Send. Simply push a button and instantly send all your contact info to another Nextel phone. It's an easy way to get people into your contact list fast.

The i860 ships with a calendar and a calculator, as well as a voice recording application that can record phone conversations if you need to replay directions or meeting times. A time and date clock are also included.

Imaging and Entertainment
The i860's 640 x 480 camera features a digital zoom and built-in flash that makes it easier to get quality shots in low-light situations. The i860 can also capture 10-second video clips. The phone's Media Center application and large internal memory allows you to store hundreds of photos in a variety of file types.

The i860 is packed with a number of Java applications. TeleNav for audible driving directions is included, as is 1KTV multimedia for news (both require a subscription). Preloaded games include ESPN Bassmaster Demo, Space Invaders Demo and Boulder Dash M.E. Demo. More game downloads are available via the Nextel Online service.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola i860 weighs 4.76 ounces and measures 3.45 x 1.85 x 0.98 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 165 minutes of digital talk time, and up to 65 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the IDEN 800 frequency. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

1-0 out of 5 stars omg
i hate this phone so much, whatever can go wrong with a cell phone, it will go wrong with this phone!

5-0 out of 5 stars others are just phones
Nextel and Motorola have developed the ultimate "ultra cool, super sleek, power attitude, I am the man / I am the woman, great phone w/the i860. Not only does it have consistent great sound quality on calls, but the ability to quickly contact other Nextel friends or relatives with a single push of the Direct Connect button makes other phones "just another phone".
**By the way, the Direct Connect (2 way radio) is usable in FULLY PRIVATE mode by simply pressing 1 button. The speaker turns off, you hold the phone to your ear, you scroll to the name of the bud you wish to contact, you push the button to talk and release it to listen and NO ONE has to hear your fast Direct Connect conversation. All Nextel phones have the privacy button for Direct Connect. It makes voice mail such a waste of our time.
That is how I use my Nextel all day at work in the office, I also keep mine on silent vibrate mode for totally discrete private use.
Look at any volunteer fireman/firewoman, construction person, cop, or young Jr High/HS kid in the Westchester/Dutchess/Rockland/Putnam County, NY region: you'll see a Nextel on their belt or in their hand. It is THE PHONE where I live.
Just try one. They have so many plans you will find one you like.

5-0 out of 5 stars this cell phone is the best
You have to get this cell is real hot!!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst phone I've ever owned
My experaience with this phone has been terrible!
This phone is absolute garbage! Failed miserably within first 3 weeks.
Purchased 2; 2nd phone is fine, but 1st is a lemon.

I purchased 2 of these phones.1 works fine (actually a decent phone) the second is crap.Does not hold a charge for more than 26hrs, car charger does not work on phone (but works on other i86's), speaker phone cuts in and out, and the phone drops voice tags (voice activated dialing) at random.
Nextel's response: call Motorola and pay $55 to have phone covered under warranty.(Nextel only covers the phone for 15 days -- Day 17 is not covered)

5-0 out of 5 stars This phone is not for amateurs
All these other retards dont know how to work the phone thats why they say it sucks.If you know what you are doing, you can get as many as up to 30 actual mp3 ring tones on to the phone for free, the same goes for games, apps, and wall papers.This is a better phone than some of the others on the market.As a nextel customer for years, this is one of the best phones they have ever produced. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars My tracfone is better!
I had this phone.I malfunctioned occasionally. I really wasn't impressed with tmobile coverage area:(. I got a tracfone(v60i motorola) And it has worked out much better.Tracfones promos like the referral- authorized person sends you a referral before you activate a new tracfone and you get 100 minutes at no charge! it rocks. I have way better coverage with my tracfone.I am now authorized to give referrals so if you need one, just send a request to sunnyryanj@yahoo, the v60i is cdma and if you like GSM phones tracfone also has those and they work on both cingular/att and tmobile so you get the best gsm coverage there is! and theres free roaming!Tracfone is better. mmhm...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great high quality phone
I've been with T-Mobile for about five years and have used Motorola v66, Samsung Q105, and several Nokia phones. Out of all of them this Motorola v180 actually lives up to the 10 days of standby time and the 5 hours of talk time. The quality of the call is the best I've heard yet with any phone. I have not had any problems with this phone but do see how a cheap plastic design could easily be damaged with minimal effort. Take care of things and they'll last - simple as that. My only complaint is that the phone does not come with a belt clip.

3-0 out of 5 stars Intermittent malfunction, otherwise a good phone.
I had one of these phones from T-Mobile for a few months, and was pleased with it for the most part. The audio quality and signal strength were very good in my experience. Its battery life was very good. It just worked very well as a basic cellular phone, and served me well... except for the occasions when it malfunctioned for no apparent reason. Sometimes, when I would try to use the Phonebook or Voice Dial features, or to access my Recent Calls, the phone would just tell me to "Please Wait" forever. T-Mobile and Motorola tried to help me troubleshoot the problem to no avail. I had to send it in for repair. It appears to be a software problem, rather than a problem with the phone itself.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent phone
I have had this phone for about six months now and have had no problems. It's small and has pretty decent features like an alarm clock which I constantly use. My reception is pretty great, and I have even used this phone in the elevator where I work with no problems. I like use my t-zones to check out stuff on yahoo like movies and news.
My only problems are, I am not able to download games which is a bummer,(i can play online games though through t-mobile), and once in a great while while i am text messaging, the phone screen has gone black. It recovers, but I hope that isn't going to be some big issue.

1-0 out of 5 stars underwater conversations
I have this as a replacement for my Samsung e-105 which was a fantastic little phone that I never had a problem with, until my lack of care caused it to finally collapse.Phones (other than Nokia, IMO) only last about 14 months these days.
I have no complaints about the design - the LCD is not NEARLY as clear as the samsung, and it is cheap plastic, but it's free - what should I expect?
The problem is that every conversation - whether to a landline or another mobile - sounds like the other person is under water! They're garbled and hard to understand.I always have to ask people to repeat themselves.
Second problem - the battery.After an hour, even when not in use, it needs more juice.
I already called TMobile and ordered the next Samsung - their interface is considerably better.
(and any problems with TMobile might just be from the particular agent - i've never had a problem, and I've been with them for 6 years - since they were Voicestream!) ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The V300 is a tough act to follow, but Motorola has a winner on their hands with their V300 successor, the V330. With welcome additions like Bluetooth, quad-band GSM, and a VGA camera with video capture, the V330 packs a powerful new punch.

Design
The V330 features a sleek clamshell design with a large, high-resolution 176 x 220 pixel, 65,000 color screen. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 32 monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad.

You can also assign pictures and ringers to your most common callers. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from T-Mobile's t-zones service. There's even an included application, MotoMixer, that enables you to mix your own ringtones.

Speed dialing, which allows you to call pre-programmed numbers with one button is built in, as is a vibrating alert. A speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear. Meanwhile, voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. The V330's phone book can hold up to 1000 contacts; if you have that many friends and colleagues, more power to ya'! Lastly, the phone's Bluetooth connectivity means that your favorite Bluetooth headset is fully compatible.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The V330 has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging and Internet connectivity. The phone features support for AOL Instant Messenger (T-Mobile messaging charges apply), and there's also a built-in web browser for t-zones downloads and mobile web browsing. T-Mobile's t-zones service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. When used with a T-Mobile data plan and the phone's Bluetooth or USB data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs.

The V330 comes with a built-in email client (with support for POP3, SMTP and IMAP4 email standards), and traditional text messaging, as well as video, picture and sound messaging are also supported. iTap text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V330 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator, a calendar and an alarm clock. You can also use the phone's Bluetooth capability to set up a wireless link with a Bluetooth accessory or connect to a computer or hand-held device to exchange and synchronize data. The phone supports the SyncML PC synchronization standard, which can be used with Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools PC application to manage and synchronize contacts, calendar and other data with your PC.

Imaging and Entertainment
With 5 MB of internal memory storage, the V330 shines in the entertainment department. The phone's VGA (640 x 480) camera features a 4x digital zoom, image quality options, and an auto-timer so you can be in your pictures, too. Capture stills and then send them to your friends via MMS messaging or email, or to your PC via USB or Bluetooth. The V330 adds video capability, too, meaning you can capture short video clips and, just like photos, share them how you see fit. The phone also supports custom graphics for wallpapers so you can dress up the phone to suit your fancy.

If you're into mobile gaming, the V330 has you covered. The phone ships with a full version of Pinball, as well as trial versions of Bejeweled and NFL 2005.

5-0 out of 5 stars Motorola V330 - Great phone for a frustrated T-Mobile user
I've had T-Mobile since it's voicestream days and along with the great service, I've had a line of dissapointing phones. From the Nokia 8900 series to the Motorola T720 to the Ericson T610, I've had a rough time finding a phone that works for me. Finally, out comes the V330. No more annoying buttons, small/flimsy casings or bad reception. This phone is great!

The V330 is a sturdy feeling, easy-to-use phone with some great features. It's operating system takes some time to get used to and has some strange layouts with the multimedia features, but overall it is fairly straight forward. It definitely feels like a tough, rugged phone with some weight to it - so when it's dropped it doesn't shatter. Finally, the reception and sound on this phone is far superior to my past Ericson and Motorla.

In my opinion, this is probably the best phone that T-Mobile has out currently. It's also a more cost effective alternative to the V600 or the future V635 with comporable features.

5-0 out of 5 stars Motorola V330 Phone = Ramblings of a Madman
Leave it to Motorola to deliver big box technology in a small box.Or in this case, a small phone.

Who knows technology better than Molvania's very own techno-pop super duo, Zlad!This phone is just like their hit song,

"Hey Baby - wake up from your asleep.It has become the future and everything is electronik - supersonik."

That's what I'm talking about.I love technology, but not as much as you you see - but still I love technology - always and forever!

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but could be a different color
I owned the V300 and found it to be a bit quirky, strange things would happen when ever I charged it, when it was finished all the personal settings would revert back to factory standard. They seemed to have fixed that with this latest version of the phone. My understanding is that they have combined the features from both the v300 and the v 600 to make this phone. I've only had it for 1 week and so far so good I always enjoyed functions such as speaker phone, voice dialing and voice memos, now I get the blue tooth and a much better redesigned key pad along with video clip capabilities. All of this is good news! If I had to pick a down side I would have to say that I'm dissapointed that Motorola decided to make this phone look exactly like the v300. I like what the body of the phone feels like, but a change of color would be better, maybe silver. ... Read more

Design
The i830 is no ordinary clamshell. Like other Nextel phones, it's built tough for construction and utilities industry users. The outer casing features a durable anodized metal covering that kicks the style up a few notches. The phone sports a large 130 x 130 TFT color display with 65,000 colors. Meanwhile, the outside cover features a supplementary monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The trademark Direct Connect and menu scrolling functions can be controlled from the side of the phone. An attached cover protects the unit's USB data, handsfree headset, and charging ports.The phone's control pad also features a five-way button that can control most of the phone's functions. The phone's software features one-touch shortcuts to phone features and easy, icon-driven menus.

Calling Features
The i830's built-in address book can store up to 600 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses. The phone comes with built-in polyphonic ringtones plus a vibrating alert and you can assign unique ring tones to contacts for audible notification and caller identification during incoming calls. More polyphonic ringtones can be added via a Nextel Online add-on plan. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. You can also speak numbers and control other phone features with the sound of your voice. Access the last 20 sent and received calls for quick call return or number storage via the recent calls list. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear, and the i830's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.

One of the key features of any Nextel phone is support for Nextel's Direct Connect walkie-talkie technology. The i830 fully supports the service, which allows for one-touch conversations with anyone else on a Nextel phone. It's like a having a CB radio with enough range to cover all of North America. The i830 also features a walkie-talkie private speaker button. This switches from the external speaker to the earpiece for private conversations or to minimize disruptions in quiet environments.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The i830 features MMS-based support for mobile-to-mobile or mobile-to-email text, graphics and sound messaging. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the i830, as well. Nextel's optional Nextel Online package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. Nextel Online also features games, ringtones, realtime news and sports updates, virtual address books, and more-- all delivered to your Nextel phone.

The i830 ships with a datebook that lets you book meetings, plan events, and set alarms that will automatically turn on the phone if needed. You can store a phone number or Direct Connect ID and initiate a call from a datebook entry (datebook Does not sync with other software programs). There's also a voice recording application that can record phone conversations if you need to replay directions or meeting times. A time and date clock are included, as well.

Entertainment and Software
For those who want their i830 to match their tastes, the phone allows you to customize the idle screen with your choice of hundreds of available images. You can also download new wallpapers directly to your phone with any Nextel Online plan.

The i830 is packed with a number of Java applications. Pre-loaded applications include Advanced Calculator, as well as TeleNav 2.2, an application that provides audible driving directions and takes advantage of the i830's GPS capability. 1KTV multimedia for wireless news reports is also included (both TeleNav and 1KTV require subscriptions). Meanwhile, games that ship with the i830 include 3D Baseball demo and a Tetris demo. You can also download more games to the phone's 2MB of internal memory via the Nextel Online service.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola i830 weighs 3.6 ounces and measures 3.3 x 1.8 x .80 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 120 minutes of digital talk time, and up to 55 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the IDEN 800 frequency. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mr SlimMr Cool
Nextel and Motorola have developed the ultimate "ultra cool, super sleek, power attitude, I am the man / I am the woman, great phone w/the Nextels and esp the i830. Not only does it have consistent great sound quality on calls, but the ability to quickly contact other Nextel friends or relatives with a single push of the Direct Connect button makes other phones "just another phone".
**By the way, the Direct Connect (2 way radio) is usable in FULLY PRIVATE mode by simply pressing 1 button. The speaker turns off, you hold the phone to your ear, you scroll to the name of the bud you wish to contact, you push the button to talk and release it to listen and NO ONE has to hear your fast Direct Connect conversation. All Nextel phones have the privacy button for Direct Connect. It makes voice mail such a waste of our time.
That is how I use my Nextel all day at work in the office, I also keep mine on silent vibrate mode for totally discrete private use.
Look at any volunteer fireman/firewoman, construction person, cop, or young Jr High/HS kid in the Westchester/Dutchess/Rockland/Putnam County, NY region: you'll see a Nextel on their belt or in their hand. It is THE PHONE where I live.
Just try one. They have so many plans you will find one you like.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Lot In A LIttle Package
Pros: This is a great phone. It can do everything you want, from the direct connect to calling, speakerphone or not. But is also has Java apps, web access, and text messaging.

The color screen is bright and easy to read. Unlike other Nextel phones (I had the i530), this one has a nice screen to see the number calling before you open the phone. You can answer it with the flip ,or still decide whether to take it or not.

I have the bronze, it is a nice color, and attractive little phone.

The DC is great, volume levels super, and it is nice Nextel is finally providing smaller phones.

Cons: Buttons are a little small for big guy like me, and while the battery life is good, does need to be charged about every night..not a problemo.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great phone
Before I purchased this phone I read all the reviews.It was the perfect size for me, I loved that it was a flip phone and had the two-way feature, and THIN!!, but I was still very apprehensive about purchasing it because every review I read said the battery life stunk.

I'm glad I gave it a shot.I don't know if my experience with the phone is unique, but I've never had a problem with a low battery.It also charges SUPER fast.I generally put mine on the charger at night, but I've gone almost 3 days without charging it (low usage).I can get two days of use with one charge, and have regularly forgot to charge it at night, plug it in when I'm getting ready in the morning, and have a full day's use.

Other feature I like include the clear color screen, and sound clarity is fantastic. After having this for a few months, I hate using my roommates cell phone..there is just no comparison in sound.

There are a few things I dislike about the phone.I loved the polished steel look, but it scratches easily.I have dropped mine a number of times and it has gotten beat up.Also, it tends to be difficult to use while your driving (unless you use the voice dialing feature) because the option buttons on the screen (such as "store number" and "back") flip irregurly, and don't tend to be intuitional.I'm also not a fan of the speaker on the back of the phone.There is no alarm either.You have to use the "date book" in order to have an alarm and it's not easily set.

But in all I really do love this phone, it has been the best one I have owned in the past 10 years.

1-0 out of 5 stars stinks i830
I have had this phone for 1year and it is the worst service I have ever had with a wireless company the battery stinks loses life before the day is up I never have service when I want it and drops calls when you are talking I would not advise getting this phone

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone
I liked this phone it seems to be tough and stylish. But had ordered it off of Nextels site.They even gave me a code that saved me $50.00.Here it is for you all to share (CL897L) case sensitive.On the shopping cart page in the promo box.It is like an invoice thing.But I think it is a very good phone.You will enjoy the phone.Happy shopping. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars very disappointed w/Motorola
This phone was an extreme disappointment.I had to return for another phone after trying to use it for 3 days.The volume is very quiet, even in maximum!The screen is very small and difficult to see in the day light.The bottom of the phone to charge plug is not smooth and has sharp edging.No wonder they had to give more rebate than the 1c cost for you to use it.It is not worth it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent Phone
I like this phone for many reasons, but with any phone there are some drawbacks. First of all this phone is very small and stylish. This phone offers a lot of bang for your buck. It has Mp3 ringtones, a decent camera, and good internet browsing and MMS capabilites. However, the joystick is very cumbersome. It may seem like a good idea, but it begins to lose sensitivity after about a week. Also, like other reviewers noted, when trying to push it straight down to take a photo or select an item in the menu, you normally wind up pushing it the wrong way. T-Mobile service is very good. I have been with them for 3 years. Previously I owned a Samsung r225m (see my review on its product page) and with the Motorola phone, I have noticed areas that I now get reception where I previously didn't with the Samsung. Overall, the this is a great, inexpensive phone, with great service, small design, and powerful multimedia features make a great cell phone for all.

**UPDATE**UPDATE**UPDATE**4/20/05**
Phone working great, however the black plastic coating is peeling off on the right side of the phone and this phone scratches very easily. Still working fine, but keep note that this phone is more delicate than one would think.

-A.D.

1-0 out of 5 stars Shipping sucks. Phone svc charge starts before activation.
Haven't got the phone yet but the 1 star is for the shipping.

Ordered 2 phones on Monday, the phone was not shipped "within 24 hours" cuz Amazon said I chose the "FREE Super Saver Shipping".Then Amazon used USPS and I did not get the phone until Tuesday the next week.That's more than a week from the date the order was made. T-Mobile starts charging the cell phone service from Wednesday when the phone left the warehouse.Ended up paying cell phone service when the phone is not even activated.

The shipping experience sucks.Should never believe "usually shipped within 24 hours" if you choose free shipping.Be ready to pay extra $ for the days you haven't even received the phone.

2-0 out of 5 stars Awful product
This is my 4th phone from T-Mobile, and in some ways its the least usable phone yet. The unit has speakerphone and headset capabilities which allow you to never hold the phone up to your head. This may interest you if you are concerned about electromagnetic radiation that mobile phones emit. I am glad to say that this phone has decent reception in my area, but there is still a delay when speaking with people and regular audio dropouts. These two problems may be related to the T-Mobile service, not the phone itself. Unfortunately this phone is plagued by some simple problems that I amazed did not get solved before this phone was released. When the screen goes dark it is unreadable under most lighting situations. You have to first press a key to get the screen to light up, which it will not do if the phone's keypad is locked. If you need to make a call in a pinch or emergency situation, there is a good chance you will not be able to due to the dark screen/keypad lock situation. Next, the phone does not ring loud enough. I was looking forward to taking advantage of the C650's ability to use digital audio files, but at maximum volume its still not that loud. I even boosted the volume of my files manually to help with this but its just not loud enough. This causes missed phone calls. Speaking of transferring files, it was a nightmare. For anyone who is not technically inclined beware: the phone does not come with the cable (standard mini USB cable), or software drivers to connect the phone to your PC. I had to hunt on internet search engines for almost 15 minutes to find the drivers. So, the greatest selling points about this phone are mostly useless. It does function as a phone if you are willing to work around all the problems.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK phone with some drawbacks.
I had an old Nokia and needed to upgrade because the battery had died and it was cheaper to get a new phone than buy a new battery. I also needed a tri-band (900/1800/1900) phone because I needed it to work in the US and Europe. The C650 fit the bill and it was cheap. I am not disappointed, though the phone has some annoying drawbacks.

On the plus side, the phone has a standard USB interface. I had the Motorola MobileTools CD from an earlier Motorola phone I bought in Europe and installed the software on my laptop (the CD has drivers for all Motorola phones) and was able to access the C650 and all multimedia features from my laptop very easily. This allows you to download photos/videos to your PC and easily update your address book and personalize the phone (use any MP3 audio file as your ring tone etc).

Major annoyances: as other reviewers have noted, the display is very dark unless the backlight is on. This is annoying because the backlight is turned off by default when you lock the keyboard, so sometimes it can be hard to tell if the phone is on at all (pressing a key doesn't do anything, you have to unlock the keyboard, then lock it again).

The little "joystick" control is very hard to use, especially when you have to press it in the center position to select a menu choice (most of the time I end up pushing it in the wrong direction). My main gripe is that the AC adapter only works on 110V current. This is unforgivable for a tri-band 'world phone, all the more so because it's advertised as a 'travel charger' but doesn't work outside the US: all my other phones had 110/220V adapters so like an idiot I assumed this one was and I fried it by plugging into an European power outlet. In the end I had to buy two separate adapter, one for 110V and another 220Volt for travel purposes.

Standby and talk times are as advertised, so no complaints there.
I don't really care much for the camera or any of the other multimedia features, so I can't comment on the picture quality asI have no basis for comparison against other phones.

Overall, it's an adequate phone that's worth its money as long as you don't have unrealistic expectations (and are willing to buy a new AC adapter if you plan to travel to Europe). ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Just renewed my lease and got it from T-Mobile
I was happy with my previous phone V300.This one gives lot of dropped calls, lot of static when travelling in car...Recommend buying some other phone.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not So Moto
I upgraded to Motorola V188 from Sony Ericsson with T-mobile as my service provider. The phone looks amazing with its nice GUI and other graphical features. It is sleek and nice to have.

But during my two years of service with T-mobile, I never had any issues with dropped calls as with this phone. On an average I get see two-to-three calls being dropped. The conversation gets disconnected; People cannot hear to what I am saying. I am finding ways to not to use this phone anymore.

I am Not so happy with this Moto Phone..V188

4-0 out of 5 stars MONIQUE'S OPINION....
I usually put this phone in my bra... That's how small and sleek it is. The ringtones are crisp and the colors are amazing. My connections haven't been lost yet and I've had it for a month. It's usually the other person's phone with crap services like sprint and nextel that drop calls. I use the t-zones service mainly for yahoo messaging my husband over in Iraq, and checking my yahoo mail right from my phone. I also shop for wallpaper and ringers every now and then.
The only problems I have is the fact that t-mobile's network is unavailable one too many times for my taste. But that's not the phone's fault. And I'm still waiting for someone to have the changable faceplates so I can toy around with the already great look of my phone. Also there arent any holster clip's for the 188. I checked many times. I'm not into the leather thing. In the meantime there's always room in my bra for my new beautiful baby motorola v188!

4-0 out of 5 stars If your looking for a simple phone, this is it.
To be honest, this is my first Cell. But when I finaly decided to purchase one, this is exactly what I was looking for; simple. I didn't want a camera, I didn't want a PC (or Mac, if you prefere), I didn't want an MP3 player, I wanted a phone. And this is exactly what it is. Nice crisp grahpics, uses the HiFi Ringtones, has voicemail, and text messaging. It also has enough features like AIM, a web browser, a calander, and Get More Options (dependant on SP?), to be multi-tasked. But it still knows its' purpose, a simple phone for a simple user.

3-0 out of 5 stars good display, and ummmm yea........
bought it from a t-mobile store, new when i renewed my contract, i loved the display, crisp graphics, but thats about it that's good on this phone. i'm comming from a nokia 3595.the moto's reception is bad. it breaks up and it cut a conversation. 3 days after i bought it, less than 50 mins used. oing back asap. back to nokia :), too bad thier display sux ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Nextel call quality is tops
Nextel and Motorola have developed the ultimate "ultra cool, super sleek,great phone w/the i730. Not only does it have consistent great sound quality on calls, but the ability to quickly contact other Nextel friends or relatives with a single push of the Direct Connect button makes other phones "just another phone".
**By the way, the Direct Connect (2 way radio) is usable in FULLY PRIVATE mode by simply pressing 1 button. The speaker turns off, you hold the phone to your ear, you scroll to the name of the bud you wish to contact, you push the button to talk and release it to listen and NO ONE has to hear your fast Direct Connect conversation. All Nextel phones have the privacy button for Direct Connect. It makes voice mail such a waste of our time.
That is how I use my Nextel all day at work in the office, I also keep mine on silent vibrate mode for totally discrete private use.
Look at any volunteer fireman/firewoman, construction person, cop, or young Jr High/HS kid in the Westchester/Dutchess/Rockland/Putnam County, NY region: you'll see a Nextel on their belt or in their hand. It is THE PHONE where I live.
Just try one. They have so many plans you will find one you like.

5-0 out of 5 stars great phone, better customer service
This is a review for boost mobile (nextel's prepaid service).I have a company phone when I travel during the school year, so I wanted a cool prepaid phone.I had (still do) a Nokia 1220 (Tracfone) and that phone was good (very basic), but I only had service in my local area (Houston) and no where else.After getting stuck at Chicago O'Hare without cell service, I decided I needed a phone that would get service in all major areas of the USA.I have not been dissappointed!!The rates are VERY reasonable for prepaid ($.15 - $.25/minute), customer service has been WONDERFUL, and it has (almost) all the cool features I had on my Sprint vision phone.TM, internet and walkie talkie (to Nextel and Boost customers).I hope what I read in an earlier review is not right about them getting bought out by sprint, because I was with them for almost 6 years and the customer service and plans went VERY steadily downhill!If you need a REALLY COOL phone and do not want a monthly contract, consider Boost Mobile.

5-0 out of 5 stars Positive feedback
The I730 of mine has served me now for over a year and a half. I have never had any major problem. Due to me using it all the time and dropping it a few times I am now looking for another to replace it. I don't have any problems with internet service, cell service or two way radio, unless I go out of the Nextel tower area. Which for me isn't very often. I wouldn't trade mine if I had to.

3-0 out of 5 stars i730 is not that bad
The i730 is a great phone, but I still think sprint is better. I gave this phone a rating of 3 because it doesn't recieve service everywhere you go. that's CRAZY! I thought nextel recieved signal anywhere. Currently I attend Wayne State and my phone rarely has service. On the other hand if I'm at home my phone never drops calls. Nextel really needs to step it up a notch, buI guess I can't say much about it because sprint will be buying them out soon.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad phone, but the cheaper model gets better signal.
I don't own this phone. I own the cheaper Motorola (Nextel) i710. I have many friends who own this phone though, although a few of them have since "downgraded" to the i710.

The main reason I chose the i710 over this i730 was signal strength. the i710 consistently gets better signal the the i730 no matter which of my friends phones I compare it too. All my friends are on the same wireless plan from Nextel as I am, so I know its not service, it is definitely the phones.

I can have full bars on my phone (5 including the little antennae icon) and my friends phone held right next to mine will have 2 or 3 bars. My phone gets signal in places their phones are "Out of Service."

Now you might say that maybe my friend just has a dud phone. Well I have 4 friends who have the i730, 5 friends with the i710 and one with the i860, all from Nextel, and the i710's always have better signal compared to the i730's. The i860 gets as good a signal as the i710 (but its significantly more expensive too).

I am not sure why two phones based on the same hardware and software have such drastic differences in signal. The only thing I can think of is some hardware added to give the i730 an external screen somehow interferes with the antennae hardware somehow.

Other than signal strength compared to the cheaper and basically identical (except for external screen) i710, the i730 is a pretty good phone. Lots of features, solid and durable construction and good battery life. For me signal was more important that a silver case an an external screen but if you like those things the i730 is a decent phone to use. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars review..
I have a Nokia 1100 Tracfone that saves me quite a bit of money from the monthly contracts i used to have with Cingular cellphone service. Tracfones are ideal for people with light or medium cellphone usage, so it works out well for me. The tracfone website is user friendly and makes it easy to perform functions such as activation, information gathering, or additional purchases. I got a referral from a friend before i activated, which got me 100 free minutes. Since then i have referred a neighbor's tracfone. I paid an extra $10. and got the car charger that just plugs into the cigarette lighter if the tracfone battery gets low when i'm driving.
I was pleasantly surprised to find some extras included free of charge on my tracfone- 2 games, a good selection of ringtones, a calculator, and voice mail. The main downside that i've seen is that you have to be disciplined in your tracfone usage unless you're prepared to buy more airtime/minutes cards. These range in price from $20. to $130. Overall, i'm quite happy with the tracfone.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tracfone is Great
Tracfone has a great program if you refer someone to tracfone they recieve 100 free minutes and the person you refer does also its great!!!! You buy the phone and just keep the word going and you have a phone with unlimited minutes (...)! thanks the phones they have are great never have a problem and i live way out in no mans land

I have no complaints with my tracfone. After a little practice i could send text messages and set up the voice mail the way i liked it.

I like my Tracfone so far. Mine is small and has good reception. It's also nice that they let the unused minutes carry over month to month without ever taking them away.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Deal
We did without cellphones for 6mo...was tired of the costly monthly charge and being stuck in a contract.We bought this phone over $30.00 cheaper so shop around.
So far pleased with the phone...still need to check out all the features it has.
Free minutes with the refer a friend...It works!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Tracfone has no customer service :(
I have had one TERRIBLE experience with Tracfone that has lasted over a month.I ordered the Motorola v60 and year card on special for $139.98.When I got the phone I had difficulty activating it, called in and was told I was sent the wrong technology phone.I was sent a TDMA phone and my area is a CDMA.Sent phone back and I had to pay for shipping out of my pocket.Got a second phone, still the wrong phone.Sent that phone back, and now more shipping costs out of my pocket.So I waited a few more days, no contact saying they were sending another phone, so I sent in an email saying I am canceling my order.The following week another phone showed up - this time I refused the package and called in to customer service again.I was told I purchased the phone card and there is no refunds on the cards.Today I finally discovered a web site that lists some very interesting information on Tracfone.http://www.bestfrauds.com/tracfone2.html.With the information at this web site I was able to contact the correct person directly (Executive Resolution Department Manager 1-800-339-9345) and was told I will receive a fill refund with in 5 business days.I will not recommend Tracfone to any one, their customer service is terrible and I wish I would have found and read this web site above before I made the purchase; it would have saved me a ton of grief.I had Virgin Mobile and they are wonderful, but offer no coverage in my current location.I will now try T-mobile, with better luck (at lease their customer. service is open 24hrs, major +++)

4-0 out of 5 stars Tracfone is the way to go
If you don't want to spend a lot of money each month for a plan that makes you sign up for two years, try Tracfone. After I started it, many of my workmates and friends have switched to Tracfone. If you decide it is not for you, all you have lost is the actual purchase price of the phone and the minutes that come with it, still less than what you pay to the likes of Verizon each month. (...)Please keep in mind that Tracfones won't work in Canada or anywhere outside the US.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nextel I830- 4 stars for a Nextel
I have been a cellular user for 10 years, and I have had Sprint, Verizon, Cingular, AT&T and now Nextel.The only reason that I have this phone is for professional buisness reasons.I am not, and probably never will be a fan of Nextel service, cellular call quality, or their customer service which is bound to get worse now that the Sprint/Nextel unholy alliance has gone through.

But regardless of my personal feelings, I still rate the I830 a four star phone, for being a Nextel.Against phones from Verizon, or Cingular the I830 is a 1 1/2 star at the most, for the following reasons.

Pros
1.Compact size, until you have this phone in your hand, you have no idea how nice a small phone can be.
2.Durable, and quality construction, for a style fashion piece, this is a very tough phone.The majority of phones that I owned felt like they were made out of egg shells.
3.Ultra reliable direct connect capability.
4.Looks.This is a super smooth, and hip phone.
5.Media, and menus run smooth.

Cons
1.I do not have enough time or words to properly express my disgust with Nextel cellular phone call quality.Nextel phone calls have all of the crisp sound of two tin cans tied together with string.Even living in the second largest, and most concetrated cell phone grid coverage area does nothing to improve your chances of making, maintaining, understanding, or completing a Nextel cell call.I carry a Verizon cell phone. and a prepaid Cingular phone in the event that I have to make a cell call.NEXTEL CELLULAR QUALITY IS THE WORST THERE IS, WAS, OR EVER WILL BE.
2. The buttons are small.
3. Battery life is terrible 1 1/2 hours on DC, or cellular if you are lucky.I highly recommend the extended life battery.It will increase your talktime to about 5-6 hours.

And there you have it.It you have to have a Nextel, go with this Nextel.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone
The I830 is perfect for people who need to carry their phone in their pocket, purse, or belt with increased comfort. The I830
weighs only 3.6 ounces and comes in your choice of Silver
or Bronze color. But had ordered it off of Nextels site.They even gave me a code that saved me $50.00.Here it is for you all to share (CL897L) case sensitive.On the shopping cart page.It is like an invoice thing.But I think it is a very good choice.You will enjoy the phone.

4-0 out of 5 stars Love the Phone...
I love this phone.. it is sooo much smaller then my old Nextel phone (the I95) it is easy to ues. loud when you want it.. the only that sucks it dont get GREAT reseption... it has more optios..

Im a picky person. and i still like this phone..

2-0 out of 5 stars This phone stinks compared to the i860
all i can say is if you get this phone you must realize that a smaller phone means smaller battery.the battery life is horible on this phone.it never made it past 1 whole day.the other things that i did not like about this phone is that it has a tiny screen & the metal cover gets scratched very easily.DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PHONE, GO GET THE i860 BECAUSE THAT PHONE ROCKS!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Nextel's shining bronze star!
Finally, Nextel brings long-time users like myself a choice other than carrying around a brick. I've had Nextel service through my employer and also personally for years. I've gone through a gammit of phones - i1000, i88, i90, i95c, i730. I'm sure some have been left out. I almost consider myself an expert on their phones. The i830 is a vast improvement over all predecessors. It is incredibly thin. I can carry this in the front pocket of my jeans and one barely notices. The bronze is simply gorgeous!
The LCD displays incredibly vivid and bright colors. I really liked the i95c and prayed for a smaller, thinner and lighter version. I cannot use this phone in public without being approached by admirers and fellow Nextel users. Everyone gawks over it's size and beauty. The bronze is more visually stunning than silver. However, I don't think the i830 is a phone for heavy business users due to battery capacity. I still use the i95c for heavy M-F business traffic. My i830 is perfect for afterhours and weekends. I do carry an extra battery and have a car charger to ensure I won't be stuck when battery goes dead. You will most likely need to charge phone each night. It has 60 hrs of standby and 1 hr talk on full charge. Overall, I'm very very pleased with this product. *Note: I have an extra i95c in very good condition with slight scratches and is fully operational for sale. SIM card is included and no contract. This was my personal phone. Flat $120.00 includes shipping in USA. I will accept paypal only. Please email me if interested at leel1@netscape.com. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

With video playback, gaming, multimedia messaging and a VGA camera with digital zoom, the Motorola V220 is an affordable and powerful way to get in on all the mobile fun. It's the perfect companion to Cingular wireless service. What's more, it's a quad-band phone with global coverage support.

Design

Click the image to get a closer look at the V220's features.
The phone features a sleek clamshell design with a large 128 x 128 color display with 65,000 colors. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 32 blue monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The VGA camera lens is housed below this display. A stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the unit. Volume buttons are placed on the left side, as is a USB port for data connectivity. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. There's a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets on the bottom of the handset, next to the phone's charging port.

Calling Features
The V220 allows you to assign pictures to your most common callers. It also supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Cingular's MEdia service. There's even an included application, MotoMixer, that enables you to mix your own ringtones.

Speed dialing, which allows you to call pre-programmed numbers with one button is built in, as is a vibrating alert. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The V220 features support for instant messaging applications (Cingular messaging charges apply). There's also a built-in web browser for MEdia downloads and mobile web browsing. Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. Traditional text messaging, as well as picture and sound messaging (MMS) are also supported by the phone. When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. iTap text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V220 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar and an alarm clock.

Imaging and Entertainment
The V220's USB connectivity can be used to transfer pictures, sounds and graphics to the phone's 1.8 MB memory from your PC. Screensavers, themes and wallpapers can be set to your tastes. The V220 is Java enabled, meaning it supports games and application downloads written on the Java platform. The phone ships with a single game, Bejeweled, and additional games are available via the MEdia service. For extra gaming fun, the phone is haptics enabled, meaning the phone's vibrate system is activated by crashes or other events in games. The V220 also supports MPEG4 video playback. Load video clips from your PC or download them from a wireless web provider and enjoy video on the go.

The phone's built-in camera features VGA (640x480) resolution and a 4x digital zoom for getting great shots on the go.

Vital Statistics
The V220 weighs 3.76 ounces and measures 3.29 x 1.73 x .94 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 7.2 hours of digital talk time, and up to 380 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

2-0 out of 5 stars A little workhorse
We were moving to the greater Seattle area so we purchased a couple of V220 cell phones.They have proven to be little workhorses, but if I had to do it again, I would have up graded for better phones.

Don't get me wrong, we have no complaints for the price we paid for them.But we simply underestimated how much we were going to use our phones, and being relatively new to cell phones, we did not know what to look for in a new phone.

A pleasant surprise was the calendar.I was able to program in my appointments and as a result, rarely missed an appointment.On the downside, we are a little disappointed in its ability to receive signal.The picture option is great, but the quality of its pictures when compared to upgraded models is very poor.By the way, email me if you have figured out a way to download your pictures to your PC.I had no complaints about battery life (two days on a single charge), until I had to use it for my business (resulting in using 2000 minutes a month)I have to recharge my phone midday.Other salesmen using upgraded phones go all day on a single charge.

Would I buy this phone again, probably not.But it does make a good kids phone.So if you got some teens or preteens that are begging for a cell phone, this is the phone for them.As for me, I will probably upgrade very soon.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great except for...
Bad things first:
The first is the voice recognition is terrible. Sometimes it won't accept what you say. Other times it brings a completely different name--not even close to what you asked for.
The second thing is the text messaging software is archaic. It's too hard to navigate.
On the good side--the clarity and battery life are great. This is pretty much what a cell phone should make a priority and Motorola does a good job here. the styling is fine, the phone seems solidly build (in China, no less!). So, it gets 3 stars.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth
I bought this phone a week back. Lot of dropped calls and there is no way one can add home/mobile/work phone numbers for one entry in address book. You can add multiple phone numbers but there is no way one can differentiate which is mobile/work/home phone. So i am going back to my old Sony Ericson.

1-0 out of 5 stars This phone is terrible
I have had this phone for 6 months and it has been nothing but trouble.I have Cingular service and they have replaced this phone 3 times for me - with the same phone - V220.It drops calls EVERY time I try to use it.It is really frustrating.Now they are telling me to turn it off every day for 3 minutes in order to receive upgrades... this isn't working either.I am now looking to BUY a Nokia phone.I never had any problems with my old Nokia phone.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this phone!
This phone is great!....it's compact, feels solid, and has great reception.Yes, the screen is SLIGHTLY smaller that a few other phones but if you want a phone to actually make and receive calls, this is a great phone...What I especially appreciate about this phone is the volume in loud areas....I got rid of my previous phone, an LG brand phone, because its battery did not hold a charge, it often made me restart it before I could make a call after exiting a building, and because it had low volume...The Motorola phone is plenty loud and has great reception.Some people complained about the lack of included ring tones.Well, that's a valid complaint, but ALL Motorola phones are like that...spend the $1.99 to buy the ring tone you really want from Cingular - big deal....If you want a phone to perform as a phone, then get this one. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars review..
I have a Nokia 1100 Tracfone that saves me quite a bit of money from the monthly contracts i used to have with Cingular cellphone service. Tracfones are ideal for people with light or medium cellphone usage, so it works out well for me. The tracfone website is user friendly and makes it easy to perform functions such as activation, information gathering, or additional purchases. I got a referral from a friend before i activated, which got me 100 free minutes. Since then i have referred a neighbor's tracfone. I paid an extra $10. and got the car charger that just plugs into the cigarette lighter if the tracfone battery gets low when i'm driving.
I was pleasantly surprised to find some extras included free of charge on my tracfone- 2 games, a good selection of ringtones, a calculator, and voice mail. The main downside that i've seen is that you have to be disciplined in your tracfone usage unless you're prepared to buy more airtime/minutes cards. These range in price from $20. to $130. Overall, i'm quite happy with the tracfone.

The tracfones are good for people who don't require heavy cell phone usage. Basically you have to keep the phone active by buying month or year cards. If you run out of minutes then you have to buy more of those too.

5-0 out of 5 stars great phone
The Motorola T120 is not going to win any design awards, but it is really one of the best phones I have ever used from a practical perspective, which is what counts. The durability is far superior to the flimsy flip phones that currently saturate the market. Battery life is also outstanding.

4-0 out of 5 stars works for me
This is a good option for the light user.I only carry it so my kids can reach me in case of emergencies or for very brief calls or messages.It's been fine, and in my area the coverage has been good even inside large buildings.I have used it on longer trips too and found the roaming reception fine. I bought the 1 year card and got 100 free bonus minutes through a promotional deal online.I have had no problems activating the phone, adding minutes, setting up voicemail, etc.I have not had any reason to deal with customer service, so can't speak to that.For me it's been a reliable, affordable option as a person who doesn't use a cell phone enough to warrant a monthly service plan.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone and service
My family loves their tracfone we have a total of 3 tracfones. I love being free from contracts and monthly bills. (...)

The V120 worked well when I first purchased it but within 2 weeks it started to turn off by itself. After the third week it refused to turn on again...at least the batteries were salvageable. ... Read more
