The product is excellent in functioning and appearance
7 May 2013
Summary: I bought the phone for a family member who has been using the same type for long. He did prefer to have the same product. The phone was tested before sending to the person. I like it for the appearance and how it fully functional.
Summary: I use the cell phone in a rural area that gets better reception with the antenna being on the outside of the cell phone. Plus, I use it as a speaker phone, that makes it easy to hear some body talk with noise in the background.
Excerpt: When I choose a cell phone I use to always look to Motorola to be the most reliable....not the case with the V551. I purchased this phone as an upgrade through what was Cingular at the time now AT&T. Numerous problems started happening the closer the got to the end of the 2-year agreement like the speaker in the phone was starting to go out to where I could hear the person I was calling but they couldn't hear me what so ever and it would drop my calls, of which I never...
Excerpt: This was the best cell phone I ever owned! Sadly it is now “out of date” and I have since upgraded (to touch screen, full keyboard, upgraded camera, etc.) but if someone comes across one and is not very tech savvy and is just looking for a basic phone to make calls with, grab it!!!!
Excerpt: The phone is great because you can mass-text people with writing one message and sending it to as many people as you want. There are "better" versions of motorola that do not do this function. I text frequently and it saves me time. The battery life is short and i have gone through two phones in two years but as you see i am not careful with my phone in regards to protection of its face, buttons, etc.
Summary: The phone said AT&T when purchase and it works with AT&T, however the Cingular logo and name will not come off, should have returned it soon as it was activated. Not as reliable as I was expecting it to be, being a motorola.
Summary: We need this cell phone as we are in a dead zone. This phone has an antenna (sold seperately) that can be placed on our roof so we get excellent service. We no longer need a land line. This phone may be outdated but, to us, it is top of the line! We would have no phone service without it.
