Summary: The refurbished phone is fine. The battery life isn't very long and the charger doesn't work at all. I can use the charger I got with my other phone and I have two batteries, so one of them seems to be on the charger at all times. It's not terribly convenient, but I've been using it for a month now and will continue to until I decide to buy a new phone.
It's a cool phone with fun features but annoying at times.

Summary: I researched and researched this phone before I got it and saw that there were many good reviews on it. It is less expensive than the Droid with all of the same features. I got this phone around November and was delighted when I first received it It was a lot of cool features such as Twitter and Facebook updates and streaming videos from Youtube along with many applications to choose from. Now, I'm on my second phone. The buttons are small and can be annoying to press.
Summary: I love the physical appearance of the phone. I love the metal exterior and the keyboard. I love how I can keep up with facebook, twitter, multiple email accounts and more. I love how it retrieves contacts from facebook and email accounts. There are two things that prevent me from recommending this phone however, major things...every once and a while it will delete all your contacts. They return in about a day or so.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for two years and I'm sick of it, I'm looking for a new one. Heres my reveiw. Pros: -its REALLY tough (Ive dropped it off a roller coaster yesterday, and it still works the same as it did before!) -it looks professional -the keyboard is spaced out nicely -its easy to figure out -it didn't cost much -the camera is decent -not great, but not horrible.
Excerpt: The Motorola VU204 is just "ok". The battery life is great and the illuminated keyboard is really nice, unfortunately there are pretty much NO features. There is no music player which is a big disappointment. I really like the rubber they used on the back. It feels soft, yet solid. The keyboard feels really cheap and the screen on the inside should have been made bigger.
Summary: i bought a vu 204 verison cell phone the phone is good i bought it for my father in law. He cannot see that good. The phone works real good for him. The condition of the phone was used and was just that. It seems to be working rather well for him. It is really easy to work. It has a camra. Its texting is good. Its overall a real good phone.
Excerpt: I had Krzr which I broke, so I got VU204. When I opened the box, I really liked the design and soft velvety feel of outcover. But, not to my liking, the phone is lot wider than Krzr and the number keys buttons are from plastic and looks cheap. Inside there is nothing in it, no music player or external memory, which I knew when I bought it, but I kind of regret it now. Sound quality okay I guess.
Pros: Outcover is stylish., Dedicated headphone port., Smaller motorola charger (than one with Krzr)., Ok sound quality and reception.
Cons: Wider and thick., Number pads feels like cheap plastic., No external memory - no music unless you buy from verizon.
