Excerpt: This phone is pretty good if you need cheap plans and cheap phones. So, for instance, if you only use your cell phone for emergencies contacts and not conversations, this is the phone to use. The way to get the cheapest plan is to get the cheapest phone with the company and do basic plan, in which you pay by the minute.
Summary: I had this phone a couple years ago. The texting is nice on it, but its just another phone with cheap parts thats only going to last long enough for the warantee to run out. The camera stopped working, the phone would randomly shut off or stop sending/ receiving messages, and the internal speaker broke so to talk on it youd have to put it on speaker mode. Everyone else i knew/ met with this phone had the same problems.
Summary: is a used phone w/ some old #s still on it...and motorola no longer supports it so can't get software to download photos to computer. seems to work OK but can't really recommmend it as better to get something fully functional.
Summary: I bought 2 of these phones @ the same time. My son abused his while I took very good care of mine. In less than one year neither would work unless it was on speaker phone, I was told by someone @the phone store that this was a common problem.Nearly impossible to see display in sunlight. On the plus side,I found this phone very easy to use ,including using it for text messaging.
Excerpt: The Phone is not worth the investment. It shuts down on its own, loses signals sporadically, and causes way too many headaches. I dont want to financially support the makers of Excedrin, but with this phone I might as well have. Signals are dropped on a whim, stanidng still in the same spot, you will go from a full signal with your provider to a complete loss of one and go onto emergency only or no signal.
Excerpt: Doesn't work in my building. It does work in my workplace, which is a building too, located in Manhattan. So it seems to be a Bronx thing. Still, it SHOULD work in my building. I have to stick my head out the window to talk. Sound is choppy. Camera phone yields bad pictures. I don't recommend this phone.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for a just a few days over three months now and I've had nothing but trouble. The phone continually freezes and blacks out. I get dropped calls frequently and 90% of the time I can't hear the person I am talking to. Also the screen is incredibly small and the camera is horrible, even for a phone. I would not recommend this phone, im taking it back for the V551 or anything else. Don't buy this phone!
