  • Excerpt: Pros: Fun Colors, Hard to break! (great for me, I've dropped it about a million times...) Cons: Heavy, size is inconvenient, clear covering over the keys start peeling off after 500 texts... I wouldn't recommend it.

This phone breaks a lot

  • Excerpt: I can only say thank God I have insurance on this phone, I have had to replace this particular phon more than 4 times now, I can not wait until I get a new phone and can only know that I will not be trading to another one of this particular phone.  There is not even a case that they make for this phone.  I honestly can not say anything good about it.

Motorola w490 is overall a decent phone.

  • Excerpt: The Motorola w490 is overall a pretty good phone for the price if you are looking for a basic phone with basic features. The camera takes pretty good pictures but it does not have a flash so the quality diminishes in low light settings. The texting feature is very user friendly. I like that it comes in purple color. One thing I dont like is that if you have too many text messages in the inbox (over 300) it wont let you delete all at once.

Pleased with performance, screen, battery life, functionality

  • Excerpt: I upgraded to the Motorola - W490 cell phone this summer and have been pleased with its performance in the following months. Even with a 1.3 megapixel camera, the pictures can only be viewed on the phone. The screen size is adequate for viewing messages, taking pictures, which is mainly what i use it for. I have experienced long battery life, even with moderate to high amounts of texting and camera use.

With the MotorolaW490 as my first phone I was sorta disappointed

  • Excerpt: I spent my high school years waiting to graduate so I could get that promised cell phone. And I got it! My dad let me choose the color for my Motorola W490 phone; green was my choice. I excitedly learned all the features I could on the ride home. However, within a few days, I discovered a flaw. My particular phone could not send pictures I took via a multimedia message. Whether the fault lies with Motorola or T-Mobile, I don't know for sure.

Wouldn't be my best pick of phones.

  • Excerpt: This phone is just ok.  I like the battery life and the pictures.  I dont like the fact that it scratches very easily.  Also if you miss several phone calls, it is too difficult to find out who all called.  Once you look at the first missed call, then you can't get back to your missed calls.  Also my keys stick sometimes and I have only had the phone for about 1 month so its not from excessive use.

The razor phone is the best kind of phone for the price.

  • Excerpt: The motorolla razor phone is very unique.  The flip style phone allows you to carry it comfortably in you pocket as well as on your belt.  It is priced quite reasonably.  Most people can afford it.  You can use it as a prepaid phone also.  That way you don't have any monthly bills, no contracts, and no activation fees.

The Motorola T-mobile W490 is cute and has everything I need

  • Excerpt: I have the Bubble gum Pink W-490 from Motorola, phone company T-mobile. I love this phone, its adorable and fairly durable. I dont need a super high tech phone, but I also dont want an ancient cell phone that cant even get or take pics. So the W-490 is in the middle. Its also very good priced, or even free with an account upgrade. I am NOT willing to pay several hundred dollars for a phone.

The Motorola W490 is a decent enough phone...

  • Excerpt: I have the Motorola W490, because I have two phone lines and it was time to upgrade my phones, because I was not interested in paying (much, or at all) for the phone that would be used on my second line. This phone was probably free, I don't remember right now. I actually wanted something else, but it wasn't Fave5 compatible, so I went with this one. When it arrived, I took it out of the box, looked it over and then put it back in the box.

ok phone always has problems after about 6 months of use

  • Excerpt: I have the purple phone.  I like the phone but really hate the problems with the phone.  The battery sucks it doesn't stay up long at all, the talk time my phone provider promised it would be which was pretty dissappointing since i love to chat on my phone.  It came in a few other not really nice colors like orange, lime green and black.
