It's a cool phone with fun features but annoying at times.
3 May 2011
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 bought this phone specifically for its keypad. i can write stories without having to look for the buttons, they're very tactile. i also like that it is fully plastic, it makes it light. it's very comfortable to hold and skinny. when i bought it 2 years ago, i remember taking it home, opening up the manual excitedly and getting ready to personalize it. THREE TEXTS INTO THIS PHONE, it freezes. i figure, ehhh, maybe it's a rarity. NOPE.
Excerpt: There really isn't much I can say good about this phone. The most unique (and actually most useful) thing about this phone at first inspection is the keypad. At first i did not like the the feel of it, however after owning this phone for a year, I have come to understand the thought process behind it's design. There is good tactile feel and separation between keys.
Excerpt: I've had the phone 2 days. My wife took 9 photos and stored on internal memory. Discovered storing photos internally made texting extremely slow ... so slow that I couldn't see/predict what letter would actually show up after I started typing; and forget about punctuation. Pros * SOUND QUALITY (awesome) * Reception (again awesome; easily made phone calls in building where vx-9900/EnV would't connect; even pulling in EVDO signal) * Keypad design (easy to dial without...
Excerpt: Well, I returned the motorola vu30 after all. In the beginning I was impressed and was even accepting of the keypad, but after about two days, the impression started wearing off. The keypad starting getting on my nerves, the feel of the phone was not substantial enough and the call quality wasn't as good as I would like. So I went back to my motorola v9m. In between the vu30 and the v9m was the w755. The call quality sucked.
Pros: attractive design, good features, nice change in the menu set up
Cons: keypad, too light weight, plastic, call quality
