Excerpt: The Motorola Motofone F3 Is a phone which is offered to customers when you sign up for Verizon and I paid $70 for it when I first signed up which is pretty expensive for a phone which many consider to be a bottom of the line device, this is …
Summary: Excellent phone for people who are looking for JUST a phone. Superb call quality. A refreshing change for people who just need to talk to people and don't want a smart phone. The battery life in particular is amazing.
Summary: Got it for emergency used when I was working in a very harsh environment! The phone is basic but doing its job VERY GOOD! Battery used to last about 7 days without charging and with more than average use. Have got a small sleeve for it and it was dropped many times. Still in the drawer. It makes a good basic phone for making and receiving calls.
Summary: I purchased this Motofone about a month ago. It was used, and had some cosmetic flaws. This phone is very simple. Phone,text,alarm clock,stop-watch-thats it! this sounded very appealing to me, but the phone is low quality. It was very easy to figure out the layout of the menu and how to operate the phone.
Summary: I bought an amazon kindle 3 and liked how sharp everything looked, especially in the sunlight where traditional LCD screens have a hard time coping with as of the time of this writing. So I said to my self, why not get a phone with a similar type of display the kindle 3 has. Low and behold the Moto Fone F3 appeared with its E-ink Display, Slim design, and probably one of the world's most simple UI's. So simple that anything besides making/receiving calls is a pain.
Great reception, great battery, for $25? Yes please!

Summary: I used this phone with prepaid (aka pay-as-you-go) AT&T. Now it's on prepaid T-Mobile. Reception with AT&T wasn't super (that's AT&T's fault) but it was as good or better than my friends' AT&T phones at the time. Reception with T-Mobile is excellent. Battery life is excellent too: it lasts nearly a week per charge. Screen visibility outdoors is awesome, because it uses e-ink (aka e-paper).
Summary: This phone is a basic communication device that works exactly as described in the product review. Slightly larger in size than my ipod nano. Call quality is very good. It has robust battery life. Voice mail can be set up with your cell phone service provider. The clock loses about a minute per day. English language version of owners manual can be downloaded from Motorola website. A travel charger (wall outlet) comes with the phone.
Summary: Just what was needed when I lost a phone. It is easy to set up if you have a little time. But not so easy for the less technically inclined. It's a little cluncky and not intuitive for those that want everything to work exactly like the phone they were used to. But for the price, a good phone to have in the drawer and tell the kids not to loose their phone or they'll have to use this one.
Summary: We take cheap phones as our kids are of age where they spoil all phones. Our only requirement is clear voice, VM and call log at low price which we got. Only issue is that it is not sturdy as Nokia phone. The manual was in Spanish which didn't concern as everything is intuitive enough and I got English manual online. The phone wasn't locked and I put in SIM card from old phone. Charged battery for 2 hours and started it.
Summary: This phone is perfect for me. I tend to loose/destroy phones and at twenty bucks, it's not a heart breaker when I have to buy a replacement. All I use my phone for is talking so the lack of photos, video and internet is not a concern. I rarely have any signal issues with this phone, it's super light and compact, the speaker function works great, and the display is easily read in all lighting conditions.
