Well it's the device I wanted, but not fully functional.

Summary: I got this to replaced a device I had (lost?) in a hospital. It arrived quickly was easy to reload with my phone book and took care of my needs until I was discharged.... Then I wanted it to link to my vehicle's Kenwood. I mean my previous (older) one did. Would not work, so I stopped at the local Verizon where the associate pulled out his smarter phone and quickly said, "Your Bluetooth isn't working, no signal".
Summary: I specifically ordered this particular phone because of the "little to no scratches" , not the case here. Screen is scratched inside and out, the phone looks like it was dropped on the corners a dozen times at least, scratches on the back also. This seller needs to be a lot more specific to the condition of the phone. Pictures would be an excellent idea, I didn't turn the phone on yet I hope it works.
Summary: The phone was ok but battery must have been junk would only stay charged for 1 day and after 2 weeks the sound went completely bad, could not hear incoming or out going calls, ended up purchasing a new phone from Verizon, so much for the LIKE NEW advertisement!
Charger broke and battery died within two weeks. Stability issues within months

Summary: Purchased used - this review is not about the phone in particular, but in the one received from the seller. Additionally, due to time constraints I did not attempt to take advantage of any guarantees. Purchased for my wife - she was sick of her smartphone and wanted to go back to the past. It came with a charger and a battery. The charger was aftermarket, and the connector was of very low quality - it broke within a week or so.
Summary: I ordered this because my current RAZR V3m was not reliable in receiving a signal. After several days I began having the same problem. At first I thought it was Verizon but obviously it's not. I have absolutely no complaints with the vendor.
Summary: The phone that I received was rated as being in "very good" condition yet the entire Get It Now/Media Store function refused to work. This is a problem that Verizon Wireless is aware of and has no plans to do anything about it. Details can be found in my review here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3CD4BYNT4DA46/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm (I'm not allowed to duplicate my own reviews.. even if it is for the same problem on essentially the same product).
Summary: Through no fault of the resellers (and unbeknownst to most of them), many of the older Verizon phones MAY have their Get It Now/Media Store rendered unusable. This takes away the ability to download music, ringtones, videos and ANY applications (such as Backup Assistant, VZ Navigator, games, weather, maps, etc.) from Verizon.
Summary: The battery life on this particular Razr is extremely low! On my previous Razr, the battery would last for at least five or more days; with this Razr, it only lasted for one day (with minimum usage)! It's possible the phone could be defective (the seller sent a replacement battery that also did not hold a charge for long), but I'm not willing to take the risk on a replacement phone as I also am not happy with the font size and the lack of ability to download ringtones.
Summary: I had a phone like this before ,and had no problems, this phone even with a new battery with not hold a charge, I would never buy a used cell phone again. It has been plugged into the wall more than used to talk on.
