Summary: Can talk on it clear and can hear on it clear. texting is extremely easy and quicker than any phone i ever used. battery lasts a long time without recharging. no set back. this is the perfect simple phone. will definitely buy again if i can fine it.
Summary: This is the best value for a non-camera/basic phone on Ebay. The price is right, it will last ages on battery power, and is one of the most reliable phones you can get (tougher and more reliable than a smartphone). There are a lot of government employees and contractors out there that are not allowed to have a "camera-phone" at their workplaces, and I would say I highly recommend this phone to those individuals, unless they can afford a Blackberry, which has better...
Excerpt: Couldn’t live without it! - External caller ID See who’s calling before you open the phone. - Mine doesn’t show the caller. Mabye I have it set up wrong? - Conference calling Talk to two people at the same time. - Great to have! Not a “must have”, but nice “frill”. The body of the phone is nice and “solid”. If you like the slim phones, you will not like this phone. Basically an easy phone to use. No huge problems. T-Mobile just needs to expand their reception area.
Excerpt: The Motorola v195 is a very good value basic phone. It does not have a camera and the lcd is too small for web browsing of the world wide web. It is, however, great for making phone calls. The v195 has a claimed 17.5 days of battery life, but I find that I can get 13.5 straight days of standby time without using the phone at all. After two years, the phone can manage 11 days straight days of standby time before needing a recharge.
Works well as a phone but not anything to brag about.

Excerpt: This phone is small and efficient. It is easy to operate but is missing key features such as the ability to block unwanted calls. There are no super features on this phone such as radio or music-playing ability. You also cannot take pictures from this phone. It is very durable and lasted several years before the turn off/on button stopped fuctioning properly. It appears to be scratch-resistant and even survived being dropped in a bathtub for a few seconds.
Excerpt: The Motorola V195 is a great phone! It is very easy to use. It has everything I would want. The menu items are customizable. There is no camera though, although I don't mind that. I also got it online for a great price. I am using the prepaid service through T-Mobile, which is also very reasonably priced. The only thing I wish this phone had (besides a camera) is a blocking service -- in other words, where you can stop solicitation calls and/or jerks that you meet...
Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted something simple. It doesn't have a camera and it can IM. I switched to T-Mobile, because I can buy my minites and have no monthly charges. So far, so good!
Summary: Great basic phone. We travel to England at lesat once a year to visit dauaghter and family. This QUAD works great in Europe/England. Since it has a SIM Card we use a Tesco Pay as You Go SIM Card in England, T-Mobile here in the states. Plus who wants to steal a "basic" phone anymore.
