Worst Phone I have ever owned

ccsltd, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "Having being one of the first in the country to own a V3688 I have to say looks far out weigh practicality. The menu is long winded, requiring up to 10 key presses mearly to access a user in your phone book the phone is tiresome to use. Flimsy and prone to failiure I can safely say the least practical phone I have ever owned. No repair services locally, the phone must be returned to the manufactureer for any fault. No loan phone provided, expect to ...
  • Pros: Small, pocketable and posy (especially in Titanium)
  • Cons: Bad menu systen, flimsy, prone to breakdown

  • Excerpt: "...got my hands on a Motorola V3688? More than ever before! It looks cool, but too damn small for a start. Lose it in a heartbeat! Though for some, the size may be a plus. Not for me though. I returned it after just one day. It was sooooo boring for a phone. Crap menu, pain in the bottom (see I'm being polite!) to navigate around and even though the vibra is quite powerful, I still didn't feel it go off in my pocket. It doesn't ring loud enough ...
  • Pros: Small
  • Cons: toom many to say, enough to send it back after a day

  • Excerpt: "...apart - I'd never buy Motorola again after this phone. I am also trying to be constructive here, so ending on a positive note - Motorola have now released new (hopefully improved) models of this phone, which may have addressed/improved these negative points... so it's also best to check out other Ciao member's reviews of the newer models of this phone. ...
  • Pros: Small and sexy looking
  • Cons: Lack of features, extremely poor for text messaging and bad phonebook feature .

  • Excerpt: "Boasting the lowest measured SAR radiation value on the market to date with a figure of 0.02, makes me want to buy one, source: www.cellular.co.za/health/radiation_gsm_phone_a-to-z.htm Contrast that to Sony CMD Z5 at 1.06 - which is 53 times more. Nokia 6210 at 1.19 - roughly 58 times a higher figure. Ericsson T28 at 1.49 I do like my gadgets and functions, and I do think other phones do serve me better than the V3688 which is also ...
  • Pros: lowest currently measured radiation
  • Cons: replacement purchase

Looks aren't everything

  • Excerpt: "The Motorola V.3688 is yes one of the cuteset phones on the market and and for the price it really ought to be. I got mine for £260 on virgin mobile. This phone is good for the people who wanna be stylish as it really is cute (so cute a baby tortoise gets the horn for it) the lack of features on this phone really is annoying. The most annoying feature is there is no caller identity for text messaging which leaves you scrolling through your phone ...
  • Pros: sexy, cute, small, light, stylish
  • Cons: You do not get caller identity on text messages which causes a lot of frustration, there is a lack of ring tones, if you have the phone on vibrate and ring when a text message comes through it only vibrates,

Small, nice but sometimes annoying

  • Excerpt: "When I first saw the Motorola v.3688 I loved the look of it, but vowed never to buy one myself. I felt that any phone with moving parts like that was asking for trouble. Well the size got the better of me and I changed my mind. Dependant on what it is you want in a phone, the v.3688 can be a pain or a blessing, for me it was the latter. Since I'm not a heavy mobile user, I wanted to phone which I could easily carry around with me where ever I went, ...
  • Pros: Small, compact, Long battery life, Vibra Alert
  • Cons: No name reference when receiving SMS's

  • Excerpt: "...little brother of the original motorola startac that looks very small and very cute. It is surprising that in the world where everyone wants to be big, the world of technology tries to make everything small. This phone s probably too small for some and it is relatively easy to loose. In addition, some people might find it quite hard to actually either press the keys or hold it up to your head to make a call. Even though it is small they do give you ...

  • Cons: too small for some

The Toitoise has it !

18 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "After seeing the advert of this phone with the Toitoise, I just had to buy one to see if it really does have that effect !! I just need to find a toitoise now !! Anyway, the Motorolla V3688 is a good buy, obviously the main attraction is the small design of the phone, making it easy to slip into your trouser pockets when you don't have a jacket and things like that. I find the phone fairly easy to use, although I do not think you can beat Nokia ...
  • Pros: Small sleek design
  • Cons: Not as user friendly as other makes
