Summary: f you are looking for a good phone that is easy to use and really just want the basics, you should check this phone out. I used the bluetooth connection and speakerphone has decent quality and the battery lasts at least twice as long as my old phone. If you want to keep things simple, this is a good choice.
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 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...
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.
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: I already have two of these phones, which are great for our use, as I don't want a smart phone. I bought this one as a spare in case anything happens to the phones we are using now. For calling and occasional texting, this phone is outstanding. Great battery life, very good reception and voice quality, and quad-band, so that we can (and have) easily pop in SIM cards for wherever we're traveling.
"An oldie but goody; a great phone throughout the years."

Pros: Battery life Lots of features for such a basic phone Built to last Good reception. In 6 years it maybe dropped 2 calls. Never a complaint about audio quality.
Cons: High radiation levels - 1.6 watts per kilogram, which is the maximum amount of radiation allowed by the FCC in the US and Canada. This info is easy to find online, and a number of reviews exists for this phone.
Summary: Perfect basic little phone. Very few features but that's the way it was meant to be! I really liked that I could change the soft keys, they enables me to use the calculator at the push of one button instead of trying to navigate the menu.
