My Pink Razr

I have the pink razr v3 from kaleeko.com it is super cool the color is very nice. Graphics are great when gaming. I also like the thin design so it can fit in my purse or pocket if I choose. I like interchanging the pictures on the front of the phone. Good overall phone.

Aaah ! The Motorola Razr !

I had this phone for two years before I lost it while moving...which is sad because I loved that phone ! Some may argue that this phone has not many feature and it's features are not really amazing, but I say it does what a cell phone should do best ! : Clear phone calls and good reception. What I liked most about this phone is that the ring tone was loud and the vibration function was easily noticed ! I could hear my cell phone ringing in very noisy places. It's thin and small design makes it enjoyable to carry around... even in pockets. This phone also seems to have a lot of gadgets that you can buy for it on the market. The buttons are BIG ! Which I did appreciate a lot because with fingers like mine, cellphone with buttons that are small and squeezed together is very frustrating to use. The battery span is okay... It could be kept alive for average 2-3 days...depending on the use I made with that phone. If you're the intense cell phone user type, your battery meter could go down pretty fast...to a point where you recharge it every 1,5 day. What I disliked most about this phone was : - the "cheap" design of the screen part of the flap, which was loose after just a couple of months... The flap could have been solidified a lot more than this on the base. - I was constantly cleaning the flap screen because the keyboard was "printing" it's dirt on the screen... to a point it left permanent marks. - Some software loadings which slowed down the phone... Especially when browsing the web or using apps. ! You got to be patient. But this was probably the most memorable phone I ever owned. I would suggest it to anyone who got big fingers, who's not into those cell phone blings and who simply wants clear calls and good reception. Less

Cons

Wow, This phone doesn't have a video camera or a music player =\ I don't know how you could possibly enjoy this phone, unless of course you're an adult and you use it for calling and work stuff...It looks pretty sweet though.

I got this phone about 10 months ago after having a water accident with my old v551. I heard terrible things about the battery life on these phones and I was nervous, but I have been very impressed. The only problem i have had is that the light went out in the exterior LCD after 2 weeks, but it was a reasonably quick repair and it has worked fine ever since. I get about 4 days out of a fully charged battery (mind you I am not using it too much, about 30 min per day), and the weight and length of the phone feel good in the hand. I found the shape a little awkward at first (too skinny for bigger fingers), but I got used to it after a while. The sound quality on this is great and I get better signal with it than i ever have with any other phone. It is very customizable too. I bought a Samsung Gravity last night just because I was renewing and got a good deal on it and I like to message (it has a qwerty keyboard), but I think I am about to return it due to the lack of customizability. The camera doesn't take great pics, but its a cell phone camera, what do you expect? Only the smart phones have good cameras. Overall, I love this phone. It's basic, but if you want a phone and not a mini computer, this phone works beautifully, has a good battery, and is easy to operate. Also comes with a good manual. Less

Pros: Very very durable... Can take quite a beating Cons: The damn thing won't die! I've been waiting for my phone to break to get a new one, since I'm not very careful with my phones, but it just won't die. I've dropped it multiple times down a full flight of stairs, left it out burried in the snow for 2 days in -30 degree weather..... and it has yet to break. As for technology, this phone was made over 2 years ago, and is very plain jane. It doesn't have anything fancy, or anything that would make it worth wild to have now a days. Less

Excellent phone: reception & battery life

from Amazon
Very impressed with this phone and AT&T cell reception. Battery life is as good as quoted, cell reception is full strength in most locations. AT&T quickly processed my cell number portability request within ten minutes of calling.

Okay i have had this phone for 5 months and now it is horrible. I have had repaired it 3 times and i mean i am not rough on my phone the problem is... that it is both the phone operating sytem related and harware the phone keeps freezing and i have to keep takeing out the battery like 5 times a day to unfreeze it the first repair lasted 2 months the second only a day. This phone has horrible qaulity control in the factorey. I am not saticefied with Motorola in general and i will never buy any of their producs agian. The ohter poor qulity thing on this phone is the hinges they feel loose and are ready to fall apart Less

Good phone, Can't beat the price!

from Amazon
The first and the foremost thing I want from a cell-phone is the call quality: Signal strength and voice quality at both ends. I am not the kind of person who likes to have lots of frills on the phone. I don't need an mp3 player, internet, email and what not. I owned a Motorola SLVR L2 Phone (AT&T)... More
The first and the foremost thing I want from a cell-phone is the call quality: Signal strength and voice quality at both ends. I am not the kind of person who likes to have lots of frills on the phone. I don't need an mp3 player, internet, email and what not. I owned a Motorola SLVR L2 Phone (AT&T) up until now, and was happy with that phone. That one doesn't even have a camera. After reading the reviews, I was very skeptic about getting this phone. However, Amazon was giving me $100 to pick this up with a contract extension, which I was planning to do. I didn't really need a new phone, so I decided to pick this up, thinking that its at least $100 in my pocket if nothing else. I received the phone and opened the box. The phone does look good. At least, I like it. Its lightweight and sleek. I like the finish on it too: sort of matty, not shining. The buttons are large and very well lit so you can use at night. Having owned two different motorola phones earlier, the interface is familiar. When opened, it feels thin in hand, but is not slippery (as my L2 used to be). I have relatively large hands, and it feels very comfortable. Now for the most important part. I have no issues whatsoever with the voice quality: Loud and clear. I put it to the loudest once to check if I am getting any buzzing as people have complained. But none for me. May be they just were unlucky and got faulty sets. Other than that, I don't even need it to be on the highest volume. The recepients are satisfied with the voice quality as well. No buzzing for them either. As for the signal strength, I checked at my (underground) office parking garage, where my L2 used to drop 1 unit. This one does the same. Still, no distortions in voice or any problems. So I am happy with it. The battery life is good as well. I am not a talk-aholic, but do end up using my phone more than my friends. I have been charging it every other day. I think for me, it will run out towards the very end of third day. It has a working bluetooth and I had no problems at all connecting my handsfree. Connection is fine without and quality loss and the range is decent. The phone has a standart mini-USB port for charging, data transfer and wired handsfree. I have the motorola phone tools software from before. The software works with this phone as well and now I can charge this phone through a computer USB as well! Now isn't that cool? It is also a breeze to move contacts, photos etc. from/to computer. (Note: The software doesn't come with the phone, you need to buy it separately) All in all, I am more than happy with the phone. I expected to keep it locked up, in my closet, but seems like it is going to see the sun for the next couple of years. I was happy with my L2, but I like this one better. As for the other things that I personally don't care about: It does come with a useless camera. The camera is good enough to take a picture and display on the phone screen only (Good for a caller-ID). Do not even attempt to watch it on a computer monitor. It does have voice dialling and voice commands for applications like creating a message. It has IM clients: Yahoo, AOL and Windows Live, so you can chat with friends. Email from a lot of servers (not google though). A web-browser I haven't opened. It can play mp3s as ringtones and other features you can read about elsewhere. So basically, a no-frill simple phone. I guess the people who either don't like a product or absolutely love it are the only ones who leave a review. In this case, it is not something that you will write home about, and probably that's why, lack of positive reviews. Anyway, I am satisfied with it and for someone looking for a very basic phone and some money, I would recommend this. I have had this phone for about a week now. If I do get any issues, I will make sure that I update the review. Otherwise, you can assume that this one is still my current phone (Unless it has been two years and you somehow still managed to stumble on this review!). Less
