Not good till Rooted and used with Android 2.1/2,2/2,3
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This phone had a lot of potential. Unfortuantely the company that made the phone made a huge mistake with it and not upgrading it to Android 2.1 really was bad. However, it is possible to root the phone. Rooting the phone allows for various ROMS made by Adlx, Mastermind278, Turl, etc to run on this phone. While Motorola let the phone stay on Android 1.5, the community developers have made it run Android 2.1, 2.2 and even the brand new Android 2.3.
The Cliq XT is a decent phone, made by a horrible company.

Excerpt: <html xmlns=""> Motorola used to be a name respected in the cell phone industry, but the Cliq XT is a shining example of why so many dislike them now, the phone was released with Android 1.5...6 months after android 2.1 was readily available, and now, with Android 3.0 on the looming horizon, the Cliq XT owners are still waiting for the Android 2.1 update they were told would be 'ready' in June, 2 delays later it's still not available.
Excerpt: GOT THE PHONE WAS EXCITED, CHARGED IT FOR 20 HOURS BEFORE FIRST USE,,, THA BATTERY LIFE ON THIS PHONE IS HORRIBLE AND THE SERVICE IS NOT THAT GREAT, LOTS OF DROPPED CALLS AND LOW SIGNAL STRENGTH , GOOD BASIC PHONE FOR THE MONEY BUT DONT EXPECT TOO MUCH FROM IT, DROPPED IT A FEW TIMES AND STILL WORKED SO ITS A STURDY PHONE.
Excerpt: I bought the Moto Cliq XT for my husband because he needed a smartphone for work and to use the GPS app through the android user interface on the phone. The android part of the phone is great. The phone has some techincal issues though, that we have seem frequently with other motorola phones we have purchased. The phone shuts off randomly by itself. it drops calls randomly with full bars showing, and the phone gets stuck on some screens and has to be reset.
Excerpt: At first I couldnt put it down, but now everything about it aggravates me. It sends my texts to the wrong people, calls without me knowing, and now I don't recieve any texts people send me. As soon as I put my memory card into my old phone, i started recieving texts again.
Excerpt: MMS the worse experience I ever had. can't belive this is happening in 2010. this phone is not capable of sending mms that includes animaded pics and background sound... not happy at all. after hours of reading and phone call no ne could help.
