Summary: Sept 2013 Motorola no longer supports CLIQ2 phone, whether purchased new or used. Software updates/upgrades are no longer available online (links still exist but don't work). They gave me an RMA # to send the phone in for an Android software upgrade. The RMA said I would receive the phone back within 5 business days. They received the phone 8/5. When I called they said turnaround was actually 7-10 business days.
Excerpt: I am fairly new to the world of smart phones and am thoroughly excited with all that this phone can do. I have usually had basic phones in the past and then moved up in the world with the cliq. What I love about it is that it is pretty easy to figure out, it fits nicely in your hand, the keyboard is very easy to use (love that the keys light up!), the battery seems to last forever, the camera seems fairly quality enough, amd it is fast.
Midrange QWERTY Android Phone + More Bang for your Buck
7 February 2013
Summary: Running an older Android ver. 2.2 does the job quite nicely for day-to-day usage still during the year 2013 (released Jan 2011) Fully covered, smooth rubber, light-up QWERTY slider keyboard keeps the moisture/dirt out of the cracks most keyboards deal with. A snappy-quick bounce release feel when pressing the letters makes writing documents and searching a breeze.
Summary: This was the perfect phone and couldnt have asked for any better. the keyboard was perfect. in the reviews online i thought they were exaggerating but it really is way better. its a great android and is not only good for a first phone but also a phone all together. great phone but bad battery life.
