Bottom line it failed after (6) six months out of warranty! One to one and half times costlier than my Nokia cells! I have two older Nokia cell phones that fortunately work. AN EXPENSIVE QUAD BAND SOLUTION THAT now fails to find a network. Customer support explained it is "out of warranty"! True and maybe a very costly experience for me leading to no more Motorola cell phones. Less

Reliable phone. slightly unreliable audio jack

This phone is built like a tank. I too have dropped it a few times (thanks to slippery winter gloves), and once also stepped on it as I got out my car. No major scratches on screen or body.

This phone is built like a tank. I too have dropped it a few times (thanks to slippery winter gloves), and once also stepped on it as I got out my car. No major scratches on screen or body. Takes calls well, none dropped, good volume. Doubles as music player, but headphone jack sometimes stops working if you are walking while playing music. Then you gotta unplug the connector and replug it in. Phone looks sleek and business type. (black especially) Takes pictures, videos, organizer (calendar). And to think Amazon paid me $25 to buy this phone! (rebate). Cannot play mp3s directly though. You will have to convert them via itunes before downloading to the phone. Less

I own an older SLVR L2 that came with iTunes because I bought it almost over two years ago. I really liked this because my iPod was stolen, and I could connect my SLVR to my car's AUX jack just like my iPod using a cheap connector cable available at Radio Shack. I don't know if the same can be said for newer music phones today. Also, it's easier to answer calls while driving if you're using a bar phone, but nearly all music phones are not bar phones. The keypad buttons are too tiny for anyone's but a child's fingers. I use my thumbnail to overcome this and would not rather a larger design for larger buttons. In short, I love my SLVR because it doubles as a makeshift iPod, and I don't have to slip, slide, or flip to answer calls. Less

This is the phone I am retiring now after about 20 months of use. So I guess I am not allowed to badmouth it too much :) I actually liked this phone. Following is a brief review based on my experience: The best thing about this phone is it looks. It is really lightweight and very sleek. Friends around me were fascinated when I first got this thing. Next, it is what it is: phone. I am not the person who likes a lot of bells and whistles on the phone. Most of the phones around have horrible mp3 playback, awful camera/video capture capability which makes them bulky and heavy. If you are looking for those things, stop looking at cheap phones and go get yourself a blackberry or treo or whatever. This one has skirted everything, and I like that. The signal strength is very good. Much improved than my earlier Motorola V551. The sound quality however was average. Not something to complain about in general, but you would have difficulty hearing if you are in a noisy environment. The speakers are also not loud enough. The bluetooth works great. Never had any problems with the handsfree. The battery life was also good. I had a little problem for about a week a few months back, which resolved itself. The battery was dying down every day for those few days. But for the most part, I used to charge it every other day. I would say, I talk about 60mins per day on an average. The keypad is average. A bit on the small side, but the feel of the keys make it easier. So not much to complain there. The phone is very light and sleek. This also means that it can easily slip from your hands when you are holding it and talking. So if you think you are a bit clumsy, brace yourself for some drops. I got this one as a free phone about two years back. It was good then. But I think there are a lot of better options for the same price in the market now. Not saying that this phone is bad by any means, but I think you can do better for the price (1 cent with contract at the time of review posting). Less

Good Basic Phone

This is a great phone for those who just want the basics; calls, IMs, texts. This phone gets great reception, has good battery life, and isn't easily breakable.

This is a great phone for those who just want the basics; calls, IMs, texts. This phone gets great reception, has good battery life, and isn't easily breakable. I've dropped mine at least 10 times or so and the screen isn't scratched at all and everything still works fine. It seems that whenever it is dropped the back battery cover does comes off though, but it easily snaps back on. A bit frustrating to connect to a PC with a USB cable considering the drivers aren't automatically installed by windows and the phone doesn't come with them (to my knowledge). Even when you manage to find the drivers for it, you cannot access the phone's internal memory through a usb cable, you have to use a pc bluetooth adapter. If you are looking for features like a camera phone, mp3 player, or easy PC compatibility, this phone isn't for you, get the higher end cousin, the SLVR. If you just want a small sleek, light, durable, basic phone, with good battery life then this is a great phone for you, especially if you are like me and hate flip phones. Less

beyond dissapointed.

Only good thing is that it looks cute. Thats about it. -My texting doesn't work. People tell me that they texted me, but i never get it.

And it doesnt send out texts either. -Volume is terrible. -People tell me that it sounds staticy when i talk. -Speaker phone is terrible. I can barely understand what the person is saying. I hear everyother word. -When its hot, the screen starts to fade. -The buttons arent exactly comfortable to use. Anytime im near a tv or computer with it, i get a weird noise coming from the tv of computer. -Doesnt connect to my computer. Ive had this phone for alsmot a year and i cannot wait until the warrenty is up so i can get a new phone. Less

not worth the cost

I'll start with the positive.

I'll start with the positive. One thing I really love about this phone is that if you purchase the software, "Motorola Phone Tools" (and usb cord if you need one), you can take any mp3 song stored on your computer and use Phone Tools to crop any size of an excerpt from the song and then transfer it to your cell. And then you can use that song excerpt as ring tones, alarm clock tones, etc... I like that this phone does not come packaged with a camera. I want a phone, not a phone with a terrible camera that I'll never use and have paid extra for. Unfortunately the negatives on this phone (at least for me) strongly outweigh the positives. --From day one I have had troubles with the battery on this phone. Extremely short battery life and even shorter when using a motorola bluetooth headset. In fact, I had to send this phone in to motorola 3 times b/c I talked on it until the battery died and the phone shut off....and it absolutely WOULD NOT power back on. Motorola replaced the battery twice and some part in the phone once. However, the phone still has the same problem. I've just learned not to talk once the low battery indicator starts beeping. ---I have to charge the battery every night. (And I do not talk on the phone all day long.) --The keys on the phone are uncomfortable to use, especially with nails. --The volume on this phone is POOR. (I really miss the sound quality I had on Nokia). --The volume on this phone accompanied with a high-end motorola bluetooth headset is THE PITS. I can't use the bluetooth headset when driving b/c I can't hear the other person clearly. that is extremely frustrating. --It's annoying how you can't store multiple phone #'s under one person's name.... it ends up listing the person's name multiple times in the contact list (for each #). --The L2's reception is poor. I was a Nokia user prior to this and was afforded exceptional reception and it was rare for my nokia's to drop a call. I have always been with Cingular, but this is the first time that I have used a Motorola with Cingular. The amount of call drops that I have now is significantly increased since I got the L2. And I now lose reception in areas where I once had reception on a Nokia cell. I am very disappointed that I wasted my money on this phone that has been more of a headache for me than anything else. I'm going back to nokia :) Less

I have had this phone replaced twice - once for sound quality and later for it losing the capability of sending and receiving calls. I am now giving up on the Motorola L2 and getting a different phone. Sound quality is really bad. With each replacement phone, my friends and family continue to complain that my voice is garbled and sounds digitized. On warm days, the screen fades in color and functionality greatly diminishes. People seem impressed by the sleek look of this phone, but it is not worth the hassle. Bulky flip phone here I come. Motorola should stop making the L2. Less

I dropped the phone ONCE and the screen shattered. It's supposed to be a phone, not an egg. The phone should come with the MPT software, not including it is a cheapskate move on the part of the manufacturer. Less
