Excerpt: The Motorola W385 cell phone was not the first choice when I decide to get a Boost Mobile phone, but I was told it was a good quality phone. The phone worked fine for the 1st year, then it started to do quirky things like making strange buzzing noises. Then the button start to stick. Finally, it would shut off by itself.
If you need a phone to make a call, well, here you go.

Excerpt: I was issued this cell phone as a part of my job as an on site property manager. For everyday use, its a decent cell phone. In light of the current tecnology of smart phones, I do not really see a reason to purchase this cell phone, other than for emergency situations, or just to say you have a cell phone like everyone else. There are a few negatives to this cell phone. First, the vibe setting is nto all that great.
Excerpt: The battery life was a big disappointment and the tools were very limited. I had to replace the wall charger twice and the battery once within the first six months. I'll never buy another Motorola phone again.
Summary: THIS IS A REVIEW OF A MOTOROLA W385 MODEL CELLPHONE I PURCHASED IN JANUARY 2011. ONE: THE PRODUCT WAS CHARACTERIZED AS "EXCELLENT" IN THE SELLER'S POSTING. IT WAS ACCEPTABLE, BUT CERTAINLY NOT EXCELLENT, BY ANY MEANS. TWO: THE PRODUCT CAME TO ME UNWORKABLE. THE PRODUCT COULD NOT BE PROGRAMMED THROUGH THE USUAL METHOD, BY TELEPHONE. IT WILL HAVE TO BE TRANSPORTED TO A VERIZON COMPANY OUTLET, TO BE PROGRAMMED BY CONNECTING DIRECTLY TO A TECHNICIAN'S COMPUTER.
Excerpt: Alright so this was my very first phone and it is good for only basic calling and taking pictures but with this phone it is impossible to send textmessages! it might just be because you have the regular keyboard and not the qwerty but either way. I dislike this phone for several reasons, the numbers on the phone are rather close together and are hard to access with large fingers the small screen only displays time.
Excerpt: This phones sucks!!I use a phone for phone use only and this model is terrible, the worst phone by motorola that I have ever seen.I never write reviews but I thought to warn anyone who was going to buy this phone-DONT BOTHER!!I have a business and I need to be contacted in the event of an emergency and this phone has failed me more than 12 times.It hangs and needs to be reset by pulling out the battery and then putting back in (hard reset) the problem is that it hangs on...
Pros: reception is not terrible, somewhat rugged
Cons: to big as a phone, hangs constantly, slow to disconnect, slow to dial, always always pausing, hangs constantly, if calling voice automated #s you must hit the # of choice twice, second line requiers a second hit of the call button to transfer back and forth
Excerpt: I've had this phone since the beginning of June,and it's awful. Sometimes when I open my phone,it goes blank and freezes. Also,when I try and text the word "ok..." it freezes,and the camera's bad. On the up side,it's a good phone to learn to text on, and it's really hard to break.
Excerpt: I had no complaints about this phone for 13 months. I treated it well, and used it only for calls and data (tethered). Then I got the 'white screen." Turning it off and on, and removing/replacing the battery were suggested, but the screen is still white. I saw others in a MOT forum with the same problem on similar phones. Apparently the cable is bad where it goes thru the hinge. I did not buy the second year warranty, so I'm out of luck.
Excerpt: Let me just say this is the worst phone, have had mine for over a year and it just died won't turn on, won't accept the charger nothing. Had to get a new one. Also I kept having to take the battery out because it kept freezing when it still worked. HORRIBLE PHONE STAY AWAY.
