Summary: i ordered this phone it looks great and as described but the performance is horrible. the phone constantly freezes and shuts off for no reason. several times a day and i never have service i am highly upset i would not recommend this phone to anyone id rather have a tracfone.
Summary: The screen on this phone stops working in humid conditions. You can check youtube and see for yourself countless victims of this defect who show their phone registering input and sending emails and dialing contacts like it's possessed by a ghost. WORSE, it does not accept your own input, so you can't dial or do anything. So far, the best theory I've heard on why this happened is humidity. I'm in South America and most of the victims of this are in India.
This is NOT A NEW phone. Avoid the seller (instock novelties)

Summary: One star is too much for this item. I have received the phone in an unsealed box. The SD card was missing. There is an useless "owner guide" (probably copied of the original - the print quality being low) that tells you how to answer and make calls. All the components (phone, battery, charger, USB, phone body) were wrapped in some worn out plastic bags that looked like something recovered from a waste yard. Nothing was sealed of course.
Summary: Buyer beware, this is a EUROPEAN model (the Milestone also comes in a Canadian version) so 3G is 900/2100 only and that means there is NO WAY to get 3G in the USA, either with T-Mobile or with AT&T - Amazon USA should not be selling this phone without a BIG DISCLAIMER - not to mention they should specify it is a UK model (comes with the original UK charger and a US adapter).
Summary: I bought my phone in may of this year from another place. To date I have received one (1) update that fixed nothing. I bought it laughing at the others I know that have non "flash" devices, like the iphone. However Motorola has not delivered flash on their "flash ready" device. In fact the bugs and failures are as follows. No flash for over a year since being released, and over 8 months since 2.2 update and flash 10.1 became available, 2.3 is currently available.
Motorola does not provide updates for their Android devices

Summary: Motorola makes great devices which have the latest software, however once you buy the device you get no updates to it which makes it obsolete in a few months! Then they make a new version of the device with the newest software again to lure even more people to their trap. See Motorola Europe pages for example for comments on how Motorola is treating their customers. [...
Summary: The Milestone is amazing hardware. But, Motorola appears to be intentionally avoiding keeping this device up to date, and actively preventing advanced customisation of the device unlike the CDMA version of this device, the Droid. This is a massive failure on Motorola's part. In addition, unless you're in one of a few blessed countries, you cannot gain access to the full spectrum of applications available on the Android market or Google Voice Navigation - thanks very...
Summary: the phone came with all the accessories even more than i thought would come.but after about two days of using it.the phone screen started going black with the buttons illuminating (back,menu,etc) In order to get the phone to respond i have to take out the battery and put it back in for the phone to restart and become functional again because noting else works. what is the possible solution to this?
Summary: Had this phone for roughly 6 months now. The phone is awesome, but I would not buy it again. Nor I will buy again from Motorola. Ever. The bootloader is locked (WHAT? Aren't we running Android, Moto guys?) and official upgrades take like FOREVER to be released. Motorola keeps promising the update for "next month", just to delay it again. Never, NEVER again I will spend a penny on Motorola.
smart hardware, terrible customer service, no updates

Summary: Motorola and Android: Doesnt work. No updates, or extremely slow, customer service poor. They are not up to deal with open systems, and bugs stay unrepaired a long time. The decent hardware doesn't change the fact that update policy and software bugs spoild the fun. Overpriced on that rate.
