Reviews summary

2.8/10AVG.
RATING
Based on 51 reviews

A budget candy-bar style handset with a basic monochrome display but many customization features. While the black-and-white screen limits your self-expression somewhat, the c333's Picture Viewer, its support for downloaded polyphonic ringtones and its built-in Motomixer ringtone composer help make up for this. What's more, the handset's front and back covers are replaceable, and you've got lots of choice from OEM and after-market lines, including some that will change the phone's entire shape.

Show more

As you would expect from a phone aimed squarely at the youth market, the c333 features three installed games, WAP Web browser, text messaging and EMS, and a modest internal memory (200K). If this is exactly the sort of handset you want, but you've got a little extra money to spend, you might consider upgrading to the c350 or c370, which offer color displays, more memory, and other extras.

Screen stopped working

I had this phone for about a year. Reception sucked, it was really quiet, bad games, no camera, and boring ringtones. However, all of that I was okay with, since it was free with my plan, and very few of my friends had phones yet. Then in grade 9 the screen stopped working. I have no idea why, i... More
I had this phone for about a year. Reception sucked, it was really quiet, bad games, no camera, and boring ringtones. However, all of that I was okay with, since it was free with my plan, and very few of my friends had phones yet. Then in grade 9 the screen stopped working. I have no idea why, it just wouldn''t show anything at all. The backlight still worked, and it still made calls, so for about 3 weeks I used it with no screen - as you can imagine I had a lot wrong numbers. Luckily, my horrible phone was recalled by Rogers, and I was given the C370 as a replacement. Less

Words cant describe the hate I have for this phone

This was the absolute worst phone that was ever made. I bought the phone the day it started to be offered to customers in Rogers retail outlets, I was really excited to try GSM service. I paid a little over $100 for the phone and that was after agreeing to a one year contract. I may have had the phone 2 - 3 months when it pretty much just quit, it seemed like it took hours upon hours to charge and when it was fully charged I would get one call that lasted all of a minute or one text message out of it and it would die. I''ve never seen anymore than 2 - 3 error messages come up on a phone until I bought this piece of trash, once it said "SIM Card Locked - Emergency Calls Only" this was after I took it off of the charger and simply turned it on. I finally called Rogers before I had a stroke and they said they knew there were a number of issues with this device and that I needed a new SIM card and there would be a $25.00 Replacement fee for it and a shipping charge. Needless to say I got the SIM card for free but I was still not compensated for the 2 damn weeks I went without service. I must have went to every Rogers outlet in the Halifax area and got no help what so ever with the battery problem, even the guy who sold me the phone said he sold me a piece of junk. The Motorola c333 I had is now somewhere under the Macdonald Bridge floating around with the rest of crap down there because that is where this phone belonged from the start. Less

the devil wouldnt take this phone to hell

the motorola c370 sucks like horse balls. the service in my local area sucks with suncom. cell phones suck.

Shoot Me Now - Or Shoot This Phone

I am, as well, one of the fine people who got into a friggin Rogers contract thinking "Free Phone, sweet!"

I am, as well, one of the fine people who got into a friggin Rogers contract thinking "Free Phone, sweet!" Until I experienced the Motorola c333 I was excited to have a new cell - you know, keep in touch and stuff. Then the problems started: No service, "Call Failed" messages for no reason, software that would hang, gay useless buttons and the battery life was a joke... Basically, by the time I got rid of this phone my freakin eyes would bleed every time I got a "call failed" message; that is, if the battery lasted longer than the 1.2 seconds it takes to speed dial the number. This phone nearly gave me a stroke I swear... People on the street would walk a wide circle around me when I was on this phone. I''d be talking to someone and if the phone was pressed against my cheek in just such a way it would put the caller on hold, then disconnect my call requiring me to call back, but during the re-connection process the battery would die. This would lead to me screaming profanities at the tiny phone until I was hoarse. I finally cut it in half with my jig-saw. To regain my sanity I took a picture of it cut in half with my new cell phone. I''m planning on sending the image to Motorola... It gives me joy every time I see it. If you have ever owned this phone, you''ve experienced Hell. Less

worst 3 months of my life

I thought the phone was amazing when i first got it. I got a free backpack and everything.. along with a 3 year contract.. a month after i got the phone,, still kind of satisfied.. 2 months, wonuldnt keep a charge, freezing began, NOTHING was working. When i called rogers to ask what was wrong they acted as if they had never heard of anything like it.. (yeah right), and I sent it in to get fixed... I got the phone call back from them saying that they couldnt fix my phone AND they were going to keep the handset.. (suspicious?.. maybe they had a little refurbishing and selling in mind). not to mention i didnt recieve a loaner phone while my shiesty phone was in the shop. I found myself fed up with the whole company and paying 200 dollars to escape my horrible contract. A friend of mine decided to wait out their contract and lowering their p lan to the lowest possible one.. even though the phone was useless. At the end of their contract they got a phone call from rogers apoligizing about the horrible phone and they were offered a new phone for free... with one catch. another 1 year contract. being as naieve as she was, she went for it.. Im not only 100 percent against this phone, i am not against Rogers Wireless Less

Unless you are into torture/bdsm- stay away.

I loved this phone when i first got it, because it was so small, it could fit into my jam packed purse, my pocket, my bra - anywhere. It's cute but deadly. I am sure that someone had a heart attack from all the stress it causes. This phone always had a problem with signals, from day one.After about... More
I loved this phone when i first got it, because it was so small, it could fit into my jam packed purse, my pocket, my bra - anywhere. It's cute but deadly. I am sure that someone had a heart attack from all the stress it causes. This phone always had a problem with signals, from day one.After about 8 months the battery started making me insane, I couldn't charge it for less than 10 hours to get about 2 hours of usage. They sent me a refurbished one and i still had the same problem. after that, they wouldn't give me another phone since the warranty was up. now i refuse to have any kind of wireless, cable or internet service with rogers, since they obviusly don't care about customer satisfaction- only customer money. I also refuse anything motorola. I did like the different ringtones on this phone, and the fact that you could re-organize the menu in order of what you use the most, but the good stops there. The paint also starts peeling off the side after a while. The thing that pissed me off the most is the fact that I can't even turn it on anymore, because the battery is completely shot, so I can't get the numbers to put in my new phone, the LG6190. If you want a phone go with the LG6190, you would be better of using carrier pigeons than the motorola c333. Less

I have had to deal with this phone for the last two years because of a stupid contract and I'm sooooooo happy that its almost over.This phone makes my days so terrible. It has absically no battery life, low low low reception, low volume, low everything. Don't get it, especially if you have heart conditions cause it might give you a heart attack. Less

Worst. Phone. EVER.

The only good thing about this phone was the feeling that I got when I hurled it at a bus.

I know, I would not be saying anything different than what most of the users have expressed about this phone, but this is one of the way to let out your anger and frustration. Rogers customer service and the phone sucks. I got the battery replaced twice, but the problem still remains. Never ever do they talk abt replcaing the phone with some other handset. What even more frustrating is that when contacted Rogers Store with the problem the salesman laughed at my predicament and cooly tells me that they were aware of that this phone is no good and still sold it to me. Now i'm stuck with this piece of shit for another 9 months till my contract exoires. Would never ever buy anything from ROGERS even if they give it for free and the same goes for the MOTOROLA. Less

Rodgers and Motorola suck!!!

I have been stuck with this piece of crap and been left by myself by Rodgers to deal with Motorola and try to fix this phone for the part 1 1/2 year. Motorola doesnt give a damn, their customer service is laughing in your face, not even being sorry for all the hardship they put you through, and have not corrected the situation. I can`t do much but take my money elsewhere which I am doing as of today. I am also warning all my friends and family to stay away from these 2 companies who think they are too good to really address their customer issues. I too hope they go belly up for having put so many people through this and I too hope there will be a class action lawsuit...I`m in! Less
