Summary: The phone was in great shape and has worked fine ever since. We bought two of the and both are working fine. The batteries that come with them, however, are junk. Verizon is at fault for that though.
Summary: Have only bought these NEW (not used or re-manufactured)but with very good results. Little harder to find recently but for $50 or so to have bluetooth, camera, in a fairly rugged flip with good battery life isn't too bad.
Summary: My son-in-law is part of our family plan and he goes through phones at an alarming rate! We usually carry insurance, but he found a fancy phone at a good price, but as a refurbished unit couldn't get the coverage.
Better PHONE than a smartphone, the phone you NEED

Excerpt: I've had this phone since the summer of 2008 on PagePlus, Verizon prepaid and Alltel prepaid (love that dual NAM capability!), but PagePlus mostly. I just went back to it from my Motorola Droid (original A855).
Summary: I've had the Motorola W385 for at least 5 years, probably longer. It doesn't have a QWERTY keyboard, so it's really not suitable for texting. And, in general, I don't find the interface all that intuitive. However, given those limitations, it's a great phone. Here's what I like: It's a flip phone.
Excerpt: This was the first phone I ever owned so I feel obligated to write a review. As a phone, it is a great phone... and that's about it. Txting was a bit of a pain. Yup that's really all I can say. If you are looking for a simple phone to just make calls on I'd say this is the phone for you.
Excerpt: Simple, nice little phone. My boss switched in puerto rico from open mobile to centennial, so he gave me the phone with a 1year more or less of usage. My brother had one, so i accepted this phone with gusto. resolves. Does it;s job. But this is my second Motorola, and i don't like the battery life.
