Slim and metallic, the whole handset presentation screams of futuristic minimalism while harking back to the childhood sci-fi of audience it's aimed at.

Looks great and performs well - this will become an icon in the mobile phone world
Great phone - until it died
Had this phone for 16 months and loved every bit about it. Great reception - often the only one in my group who got a signal in rural areas. Worked very easily with my computer and bluetooth. Easy transfer of photo files, and glad to have it charge through USB-mini - very handy. Great battery life (5-7 days). Noting to complain about. Sadly, got caught in a rain storm and soaked it - lost function in one button and shorted out the battery and sent it back to Bell - but it got replaced with a far inferior Samsung m530 (no comparison - what a piece of junk). The Razr was a great machine up to that day.Less
All show-no go
I got this phone in late 2005 when it had been out for a while, thinking it's a great looking phone. Well that's about it. The sound quality is good but the speaker volume is terrible. The camera is ok for it's size. The software is clunky, and not intuitive, and can leave you guessing sometimes. The keypad looks neat, but again the buttons and software don't give very good feedback if they've been pressed or not. Remarkably, the best thing about this phone was it's battery life (when the battery was new) and its ability to survive drops from the beltline to some hard surfaces.Less
I had this phone for 2 years and I never had a problem with it. It got dropped lots and used all the time.. and I never had an issue. The only real problem I had near the end of my contract was that the battery wouldn't stay charged that long, but I created that problem myself by charging it while it was on. Sure the features weren't all high tech and such but if your looking for a functional phone, the Razr is amazing! I've had my new phone for not even a year and I'm having problems, now I sorta regret getting rid of my Razr...Less
3 Years and still works great!
Mine is years old and still working great....gave it to my mom. She loves it, very user friendly for her as a first time cell user.Less
The pros. - Quite attractive design - VERYVERYVERY durable. - Buttons are pretty and large enough for your fingers - Call quality is good - Easy to navigate menus - Did I mention it was durable? - Battery life is pretty good. I've gone about a week without having to charge. This is good for a forgetful person like me ;] Cons. - NO memory. .__. If I get about 45 texts in my inbox, there's no more space for more. There isn't even a slot for more memory :l - Few features. It's very simple, and I guess that's a pro in some cases, but it gets boring after a while. - The buttons don't play the right notes for Mary Had a Little Lamb when I try to play it ;_______; I would recommend this phone to anyone who's looking for a simple phone, such as young kids or whose parents want them to have a phone. It's simple, pretty, and incredibly durable. For us teenagers who want to Facebook, MSN and text at the same time, you'd stay away from this phone.Less
Old but still reliable Razor...
I for one love this old phone. I got it quite a few years ago when they first come out and to be frank, so far the only problem was the short battery life after a year. I have had 2 new phones since then that died on me just after the warranty expired, and it wasn't worth the major headache and hassles to repair. So, oddly enough I kept my razor for a back up and I already had to resort to reactivating it twice in the last 2 years. However, I did go to "The Source", (CANADA) and purchase another battery and a new charger. Charger was 39.99 and the battery was 29.99 and I still use the phone to this very day and now have no intentions of getting a new one until this one completely gives up the ghost for good. If it not broke, don't fix it is a worthwhile motto for this phone. Probably the best phone so far to date that Motorola has ever made.Less

2 Years - No problems
I've had this phone for two years with Bell. Now selling it because I got an HTC touch. I'm VERY satisfied with the Razr v3c. I did have a problem with it about a year ago when the screen would freeze or work periodically. People at Bell told me that this was because of water damage and replaced it for me. Never actually dropped it in water. Maybe it was because of the very humid summer?? Strange in any case. After two years, the battery is dying on me and needs to be replaced (which is anticipated). The phone has a very satisfying feel to it and is very easy to use. The design and blue lighting on the keypad is awesome, especially when you're trying to dial a number in the middle of the night. I'm not sure about the more advanced features, such as surfing the web, etc. It looks like the selection of features on this phone is not very extensive. Basic stuff, such as calendar, calculator etc are included, but that's about it. Loading mp3 ringtones to the phone is very easy and the sound is great. 1.3MP camera is alright. Overall, simply to be used as a phone, I just love it! It easily fits into the pocket in your jeans because it's so slim. One thing I absoluately hate though is the annoying beep it does when the battery is low that you cannot disable! Pros: - Amazing design, feel and look - Good battery life - Solid design - Loud, customizable ringtones - Very light and ultra slim (great for people like me who don't like to walk around carying a pebble in their jeans). - Responsive and very easy to use. Cons: - Lack of features (maybe because I'm using a smart phone now) - Reception in my basement is a little shaky. Seen other phone with better reception. Verdict: I think this phone does an amazing job as a phone. However, if you do a lot of texting or any web browsing, you'll need something more advanced.Less
