Excerpt: I wouldn't waste my money on this phone. I think it was released too soon because of all the problems I've read online. I've had 5 of these phones in less than 2 years. I want able to finish my 2 year contract because of the issues, I had to take my mom's upgrade to get a Galaxy s4. The common problems I've experienced with this phone were the battery never fully charging or saying is charging when the battery number goes down, no 4G at all, calls randomly being dropped,...
Summary: This phone arrived in good condition, on time, it's exactly what I wanted, and thanks to Amazon I was able to get it, as motorola has unfortunately discontinued this phone to promote their new touch screen only phone. Not everybody wants a touch screen only phone.
Summary: Well, I did pay for a 'Brand New' phone, but I got a refurbished one. However, upon negotiation with the seller, they agreed to refund the difference to the average 'refurbished' price found on Amazon. The refurbished phone had a few problems, but they were quickly sorted out by the customer service. Very prompt and helpful service merit the overall purchase 5 stars, but contact with the seller is recommended before final purchase to verify the product is as advertised.
Summary: Motorola basically took everything convenient about a qwerty keyboard and threw it out the window. It only gives you maybe a fifth of the usual symbol options and to even use those you need 3 hands. It has the usual shift option but has zero capability for locking it in. So you have to hold it down to use any symbols. This wouldn't be as much of a problem if they put a shift key on both sides of the keyboard but they didn't.
Summary: I read my reviews so I knew what I was getting into. The ONLY thing I wasn't aware of is that this phone doesn't have NFC. That's it. I've followed the series and love the phone and I am TRULY HOPING for a new version that is up-to-par with its brothers and sisters. Us keyboard people seem to be a dying breed but this is how we unite. Speak ur mind!
