Excerpt: There is absolutely nothing good about this phone. Come to think of it, Motorola as a company just totally sucks. They make phoes that look really cool and have no functionality at all. PROS: -Aluminum looks cool -Can compose own ringtones CONS: -Imagine anything that can go wrong with a phone. It'll all happen with this shiny sack of dog vomit. UNTIL THEY GET THEY'RE HEADS OUT OF THEIR BACK DOORS, DON'T BUY MOTOROLA!!!!
Excerpt: I've a close friend who has this phone. She doesn't care for anything electronic, but she loves this phone. It has dramatically better reception at her house under Alltel than her Audiovox CDM-120 did (might not be saying much, I dunno). I've been playing w/ the phone tonight getting to know it's features. I've found no reference for an FM radio like "suedeekee" says and Phonescoop says it doesn't have one either.
Excerpt: The V60x2 is definitely an improvement on the V60i in every category BUT reception. That is the sole problem with this particular model. I have no idea why Motorola decided to take the retractable antenna away but it has hurt the reception quality of the phone considerably. I own a V60i and sell V60x2's and there is an incredible difference in reception between the two phones.
Excerpt: I just got this phone today and I am very satisfied considering my first phone was the Audiovox 8500 from Virgin Mobile. I moved to AllTell and got the v60x and I get 5 times a better signal, and it works in places my other couldn't.
Excerpt: This has to be the worst signal getting phone I've ever seen, I work at a retail store, after all the programming and everything, every phone has a minimum of twice the signal of this phone. The Kyocera's and the Nokia 3585i are unbeatable.. but the v60x should atleast compare... I'm not quite sure what's happened to Motorola, but the quality seems to be dropping on phones more and more lately.
Excerpt: I recently had a Motorola v60i, which I had an accident with and replaced it with the v60x. I was not as happy the v60i as previous phones such as Nokia and I loved my Panasonic Duramax. But Decided to stick with the phone because of the accessories I had for it I decided to stick with the v60 series only to find out the chargers and batteries do not work with this phone. Not sure of this reason only seams to be a money scheme.
Excerpt: I just got the V60x, the wife the Nokia 3585i from Alltell. We did a few simple tests like calling each other with our wireless landline phone while outside the house while the other walked all though the house with the cell, then switched, cell outside and landline inside. The Nokia performed very well. The 60x on the other hand kept breaking up and seemed to drop every 2nd or 3rd word. Not much better in a test while in the car.
