Summary: I have T-Mobile so it obviously works with my SIM card. The Wi-Fi works as well; I don't have a data plan. The phone is so very slow and gets confused with different tasks. Opening my texts should not take two minutes to do. It's the original droid, I believe. This explains its speed. I like the keyboard - the reason I bought it. I honestly don't recommend this phone to anyone. It's troublesome and time-consuming. It also roams around like no other.
Summary: First off the phone is smaller then you would think im talking the whole phone not the just the screen size. The keyboard buttons are very jammed tight. It freezes alot and it shuts off randomly. On phone calls its really easy to push buttons with you cheek because the screen does not like to stay blacked out. I understand its not a 3g phone but even for edge it runs slow for what in its time was a high end android.
Did not realize this was a phone from another country

Summary: I did not do enough research into this Motorola Milestone, and it was actually a European phone that was not compatible with the 4G available here int the US. I wish the seller had divulged this information in a more straight-forward manner and I ended up returning this item.
Excerpt: My husband bought the Motorola Droid as soon as it came out. At first, i was excited, because my phone doesn't have internet access and I thought this would be fun. I figured I'd try it out, and if I liked his, maybe I'd get one too. The thing I like least about the Droid is the QWERTY keyboard. I text all the time, and I use the Droid to go onto facebook. The keys aren't separate at all, so when you hit one button, you wind up hitting others.
Excerpt: I was so excited to replace my Blackberry Smart phone last Christmas with the Motorola Droid. I must admit, I was a bit puzzled at first by all the bells and whistles, but did alot of exploring and finally got icons where I wanted them for my personal use. I noticed on the first day of use that the battery was going down fast. I attributed that to alot of use and exploration of apps. After another full night of charging, the battery, once again, went down very fast.
Good from far, far from good! Early Adopters Beware!

Excerpt: On the surface this phone is great. It has great features. It is a Iphone competitor. It is faster in some ways than the ATT Iphone, specifically its internet speeds, but I have not tested its speed vs the Verizon Iphone. My test was a friend was searching for a review on something from a nationwide store. I decided to compare speeds and started after her. My search for the same site started after and ended before my friend's search. I was impressed by this.
Excerpt: I'll admit it: I'm a professional computer expert, so I have high standards for a smartphone BUT I don't think I'm going to say anything here that a buyer/user wouldn't agree to after using it for several weeks, so read on. I have a LOT of gripes about this phone, ranging from a few huge ones to a million small ones, so I'm going to start with what I like about it, because it's a nice small list .
Summary: The phone is heavy, but I guess that is to be given since it has a physical keyboard. I thought I would like that since I had an all touch screen for so long. But once you get use to an all touch screen phone, reverting back to a physical keyboard is a little awkward. Phone drops calls A LOT...and this was NOT due to my carrier T-Mobile. I thought this phone would work on T-Mobile's 3G.
