The Motorola V220 Cell Phone is a good basic phone.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I was pretty happy with the Motorola V220. I used it for basic emergency and in-car calling, but I switched carriers and wanted a "texters" phone, so I've sent it for recycling now. It's not very stylish as flip phones go, but it's simple to use and small enough to fit in my pocket (as well as the cell phone pocket of my purse).
Summary: Combining affordability with high-quality technology, the Motorola
V220 mobile phone is the ideal mobile companion for savvy professionals. The sleek model V220 is designed to
capture pictures with its integrated VGA camera . This mobile phone has
advanced photo messaging. An added advantage is its brilliant color display which completes the
package. With downloadable games
and MP3 ring tones, the Motorola V220 is your must have communications
Summary: In the beginning, I was just happy to have a camera phone. I've had this phone for about 10 months now and here is what I've gotten. - Often I will be speaking with someone and they will complain about a "buzzing" or something that I would not hear. I usually thought it was a radio or computer interfering with the signal, but looking at some reviews I can say that it was probably the phone itself. - The pictures taken with it aren't to die for.
Summary: The best feature of this phone is that the voice quality(that you the phone owner hears) is excellent. It is so clear that my 85 year old mother who has extremely poor hearing can hear the caller well when it is in speaker mode. In contrast, she hears much less using a conventional phone with a boost mode or than when using 2 other nokia models on speaker mode. Downside is that in sunlight you can't see what is on the screen at all.
Summary: Got this phone with a Cingular plan about 8 months ago. Liked it initally and after about 2 weeks, phone started to mess up. Had full reception but got the "call failed" message everytime I tried to make a call. People calling me got my voice mail as if my phone was off. Couldn't text message or anything. Took it back to Cingular and they replaced it. Since then, i've had no problems with it.
Summary: If you want a phone with camera because you actually plan to use the camera this phone is not it, it's rare to get a clear image w/it! It's compact and that's nice for purses and junk. You can find many accessories for it, and if you like musictones they sound great on this phone! I have never had any problems w/reception. I think that the best thing about it is that it is durable.
Excerpt: This phone is horrible, the reception is bad, the camera broke after 2 months (is wasnt that good before that), the only good thing is the speaker phone option, other than that it stinks. The ring tones and volume change on there own. This phone is horrible I would not reccomend this to anyone unless you were not planning on keeping it for longer than 2 months.
