Excerpt: Don't get any fanciful ideas about putting applications and such on this phone. As with all Verizon phones, Java is unsupported. Verizon's Brew is completely closed source, there are absolutely no free app's for the w385. The sound has cut out on me twice, and although it looks nice, the only reason I have this phone is because it's the free one that came with my service.
after trying three used phones and failing to get one to work, I give up
9 December 2011
Summary: I bought the w385 verizon and after taking it to a verizon store,they told me they could not get it working to call out or recive. They sent me anouther and it was the same. I also called the teck line for horizon and they also tryed to get it working.no It cost me $5.50 to send these phones back..
Summary: This is my second cell phone and I hate it, I have had it more than a year and I still find the buttons confusing and I can't get my photos off the camera. I plug the phone to my PC via USB and nothing. Everything says I have to email the photos, but unfortunaly the phone will not email I think it requires another level of service. But there is no money in the budget for more service. I want my old LG phone back.
Summary: PLEASE DON'T GET THIS PHONE FOR A TEENAGER. MY OPINION IT IS DESIGNED FOR AN OLDER PERSON 50 AND ABOVE WHO ONLY WANTS TO TALK AND NOT INTERESTED IN DOWNLOADS OR TEXT MESSAGES.MAYBE SOME ELEMENTARY KIDS WHO WILL FEEL GOOD TO ONLY HAVE A PHONE AND TO TALK TO THEIR SCHOOL FRIENDS.THIS IS JUST NOT FOR ME, SORRY I HAD TO RETURN THIS ITEM I WAS NOT SATISFIED FOR THIS USE IT WOULD GIVE. I LIKE MY RING TONES AND MUSIC DOWNLOADS.
Summary: I understand that I purchased the phone as used, but there is extreme wear on the phone. In addition, the face is cracked. At the time of purchase, the condition said used not beat up. I am unhappy with this product. I should have been told about the cracked face on this Motorola W385 cell phone.
Summary: I need for you to deactivate this phone off your account so I can activate it on my account and I need the phone tonight. Why would you even sell a phone to someone else that is still activated on your own account? Please let me inow something right away. firstname.lastname@example.org today please!!!
Summary: I purchased a Motorola W385 to activate with Cricket wireless but it turns out that this was a dual band phone and I wasn't able to activate it here in Chicago, IL. In order to activate a Cricket cell phone here in Chicago it must be a TRI BAND CELL PHONE. Even if the ESN number to the cell phone is clear for connection you might not be able to activate it. Just thought I'd let you know before you purchase.
