Excerpt: I hate this phone. It doesn't get reception IN MY HOUSE. The sound quality is awful and I have to ask people to repeat themselves all the time. The worst thing? I have the "grape" color and for some reason the purple paint on the keyboard started to flake off almost immediately.
Excerpt: agree, that i liked the phone, liked the text, etc; agree that camera not good, and the back plate doesn't want to stay on; having it in ur pocket, the ring style will change having hit something in the pocket.
Excerpt: I "upgraded " my phone with a new 2 year commitment back in February 2008, thinking I was getting the best of phones, a Motorola, even though it wasn't quite what was top-of -the-line which was the Motorola Razr.
Excerpt: This phone is terrible.. the screen turns white everytime i open it..and i have to restart my phone to use it.. it turns white everytime.....terible phone....dont take this phone ever again......and dont waste money behind this....
Excerpt: Well when my phone started doing whatever it wanted mainly dial the number 8 until i wanted to punt it across the room, I decided to google the problem and low and behold, it's not just me. The phone was always pretty slow on the uptake, it would have a lag time between one application to another.
Pros: Looks nice, camera works pretty good
Cons: Short life expectancy, possession by the" spirit of 8" seems inevitable, delays when changing applications
Excerpt: NEVER get this phone!!!! It looks good at first, but its not worth it! I have had SO many problems with this phone. It won't charge with ANY charger into an outlet in a wall. I have to use a USB cord plugged into the computer to charge my phone, then it doesn't even hold a charge!!!
Pros: Size and thats IT
Cons: Wont hold a charge, Never gets good service, Bad memory/storage space, EVERYTHING ELSE
Excerpt: This phone is not well made at all. After just over a year the, the keyboard on it stopped working. Only button that operates is the power button now. Looked on T-Mobile's site, and a bunch of other people posted the same issue with the W490 - keyboard fails after six months to a year of use.
Excerpt: Everytyme I use the phone a white screen pops up&it often presses the number 4,&7.idk whats wrong with this pone but it is garbage.the look of the phone is great,but the phone itself is not worth buying.so please dont buy the Motorolla W490.!!!!!!!!!!!
Excerpt: My phone is failing like all others, the white screen of death as it is called has possesed this phone. Suggestions? Im thinking of just trashing this phone then buying a unlocked phone and using the sim card.
Excerpt: So, in the beginning, this phone was working fine. I got it for free so it was whatever but, then about 6 months later, it started acting up. i.e. Dialing random numbers, turning the volume up and down, the buttons were worn (which shouldn't happen), and also, when I got this phone, it was the last...
Pros: Long battery life, has a lot of storage space.
Cons: Not durable at all and all the other complaints I've said.
