Summary: I am able to talk, and after going trough a lot of trouble I could finely instal the basic apps. Apart from that the phone did not meet the expectation. It turns on an off without just by itself. It is too slow. It takes too long to turn on.
Summary: This was the very first Android phone on AT&T and I believe it was intentionally crippled in the CPU and RAM departments as to not show up the then exclusive to AT&T iPhone models.
Pros: Camera takes surprisingly good pics in adequate light. OK support in the modder community, official Cyanogenmod 7 port will give you Gingerbread 2.3 once you root it and get past the bootloader. Good keyboard and unique form factor. LED flash makes a great flashlight that will almost hurt you if ...
Cons: Official 2.1 update lacks multitouch, so no pinch-to-zoom and goodies like that. Slow CPU and limited RAM. Battery life isn't that great, you MIGHT make it through a work day with 3G and data on, no way you'll make it with WIFI, GPS or Bluetooth enabled. You might get a full day or two if you for...
WAS a steaming heap of dung, but a root and flash changed it completely!

Summary: Every negative thing written about the Backflip was true, when it was running Motoblur software on top of a crippled and outdated Android 1.5 OS. It took a lot of concentration and digging on my part, but with the help of several web forums and tutorials, I eventually figured out the proper steps to...

Summary: I was the same way with this phone, until I changed out the software I thought it was a pile of crap. Only thing this phone is good for is texting and sometimes internet browsing. The keyboard is pretty good, probably the best feature of this phone.
Summary: Interface is not intuitive and not easy to use especially if you are new to Android touch screen phones. Photo and video will not function without micro SD card. Motoblur must be set up to use all of this smartphones features. Scrolling is very sensitive and requires patience to master.
Summary: Unplug the charger from the phone first, not the wall. If you unplug it from the wall, It will cause the battery to discharge super fast(gets rather hot also). If it wasn't so slow, it would be an awesome phone.
Pros: -Android OS -I like the keyboard -All the amenities of a smart phone...wifi, email, headphone jack, camera... -microSD slot -message indicator light
Cons: -Rather slow -Takes a long time for camera to pop up -Have issues hearing people on skype(assuming its a speed issue). -navigation can sometimes hang for a couple seconds. -Only goes up to Adroid 2.1 -Every once in a while it will randomly restart(like once a month).I think its wifi related, and ...
Excerpt: I had boost mobile, & wanted to switch to AT&T I wanted another android, my friend recommended the Motorola Backflip- that's what phone he is. I got it, liked it at first. Once I started texting on it- I realized the damn thing lags hardcore.
Summary: Got a referb phone back in November,but was having problems almost right off the bat .. Because it was still under warranty I was able to send phone back at no cost and received a new on. First the negative 1. contacts and emails took forever to appear. 2.
