What a crock. I was told this phone the Motorola C332 was unlocked but it never worked for me! Not a good deal for me! Almost didn't come back to Amazon because of it!

Battery sucks

What good is it if it looks good, has cool features, but CANNOT FUNCTION AS A PHONE?! the battery on this thing cuts out on me everyday. i recharge it everyday, and it still dies on me. Even after i got it replaced. Stay away.

Worst phone EVER!! 0 stars

from Amazon
The battery on this phone works normal for 3 months. After that you have to continually replace this phone. In my 1 year contract I replaced this phone 3 times. The last time I just gave up and borrowed a friends phone. Don't get this phone!!!

You can replace the battery in the Motorola C332 phone. Remove the case front and back, then using a T 6 screwdriver remove the 6 screws holding the inside assembly together, carefully remove the screen and circuit board (all one piece)from the inside assembly. The battery unplugs just like in a cordless phone. Very carefully unplug the battery. The thin piece of plastic on the back of the battery should be used on the new battery. A new battery can be purchased from YescomUSA.com part # BTMOTC332L. Less

The Motorola C332 was my first phone and lasted about 18 months. I was 17 when I got it, and LOVED the look -- it's adorable and small! Unfortunately, the phone is completely low quality! The ringers were WAY too soft to hear -- I missed so many calls because I couldn't hear it...even when in the same room! Dropped calls became second nature...I would normally be dropped after about 14 minutes of talk time, which was annoying. During conversations, there was also much background noise, which I do not hear with my dad's much more reliable Motorola V60! Now, the phone is 18 months of age and I will be buying a new phone. The battery lasts a total of 8 minutes now before beeping at me with a low battery warning. Unfortunately, the internal battery cannot be replaced, so I am forced to spend money on a brand new phone. I hope my next phone has louder ringers and doesn't drop my calls! The phone is easy to use and cute, but there is a reason it was withdrawn from the T-Mobile shelves. Cute phone, loooow quality. Too bad! Less

its so hard to use

i have no idea what i am doing with it

Horrible, stay away

from Amazon
You can't replace the battery, and it would be at the first bar after a full charge the first day I got it. It will give you 20 minutes talk, tops, and that's brand new. I finaly gave up and bought a cheap Nokia 3595. What a treat! T-Mobel has been good to me, and only charged me $20.00, with a 1 year...More

I finaly gave up and bought a cheap Nokia 3595. What a treat! T-Mobel has been good to me, and only charged me $20.00, with a 1 year contract extension. T-Mobile I recomend anyway. I travel a lot, and found reception even in Puerto Rico, when others did not. Less

i wish i could sue motorola AND tmobile for selling this phone and continuing to sell it after countless problems were reported and many phones had to be "replaced" (if that's what you want to call them sending you a refurbished phone that's worse than the first one...and then doing it three more times after that just so they can run your warranty time down) and they're still selling them just to get rid of them. trust me, it's been more of headache than anything, especially when you're on an important call. i'm amazed that they are still getting away with selling a phone for $99.00 when it's not worth the plastic they shoved it in to begin with.
