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: I have now purchased two W385's. The first one would not ring and had to be returned. The second one has such poor sound quality that all calls sound like they are being sent from underwater. It would seem Motorola has some inconsistency in manufacturing. On the plus side, I like the feel of the phone, the keyboard, and features. The voice dialing function works very well. I sat next to someone on the same network who had 3 bars when I had 5, so it grabs signal well.
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.
