can someone explain me whats an android or droid? and whats the main use of it?
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2010got it, and going to return it to day. it look cheap. N900 is better.Only a fool would compare this phone to the N900. You are clearly a Nokia fanboy. This is a mid-range android phone. If you want a Motorola Android phone to compare to the N900 try the DROID.

Anonymous, 08 Mar 2010it is very funny that in the U.S when i went to the AT&T store to buy "Motorola BACKF... morethat isnt true and noone can stop you from paying full cost on the device. for those of you getting bullied, you have to grow a pair and tell the jerks to sell it to you or you will get the better business involved.
android is the key to motorola. finally motorola has woke up from the razor era and razor is dead. good design and features. well done!!!
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2010it is very funny that in the U.S when i went to the AT&T store to buy "Motorola BACKF... moreThe store just didn't want to waste one of the few they had by selling it no contract. The reps don't make a dime when you buy it that way and they would rather save the limited device inventory on upgrades/new service. Once they have more stock available it shouldn't be an issue. You can always order from Amazon no contract.
Good morning i have a question about this phone.I live in Greece and i ordered it from abroad (Usa).Does it have greek language preinstalled or it there an app to install?Thanks!!!
it is very funny that in the U.S when i went to the AT&T store to buy "Motorola BACKFLIP brings Android to AT&T" but the agent at the store told me that they can not sale that phone for me without the contract even i already have AT&T account.
Later i tried to call to the customer service they did no solve my problem as well.
In my opinion forget that phone if u can add a line or upgrade qualify in ur AT&T account.
Smart phone in stupid store.

Mike, 05 Mar 2010Do you worry about blackberry keyboards since they're exposed as well? or any candybar phones ... moreI don't worry about setting my blackberry down with an exposed keyboard but I am also not setting it on the keyboard. The exposed keyboard is on the back of the phone. To think that its not gonna get chewed up is ridiculous.
I have a Backflip. I went to buy a Blackberry 9700 and while waiting I starting playing with th Backflip. After an hour of trying everything I could on the phone I left the store with the Backflip.
The screen is small, but looks good. Installing Opera Mini took care of any need to use Google for search. If you like the installed browser you can create a short cut to Google and put that on your home screen.
The track pad on the that is on the back when the phone is open is one of the things I like most. Great for scrolling through long pages and browsing.
The keyboard is better than I thought it would be, but provides a definite contrast to the light touch that the screen requires. You know your pushing a key, it takes effort.
Syncing with my online Google calendar was easy and so was setting up my e-mail.
I am liking it after just a few hours with it.
Having spent today playing around with one I have to say that it's really nice. Video streaming was crisp and clear as well as easily watchable with it half open on a table. Voice calls were very good and texting was great both with virtual keyboard and physical. I was surprised at how fast I could type on the virtual without mistakes even though it's a small keyboard. 5 customizable home screens are nice. I spoke to a Moto rep and he said that 2.1 upgrade should be coming in around 60 days. I gotta give it thumbs up. I think it's a good start for Android on AT&T and they have tons more to come.
Narsha, 04 Mar 2010Worry about the keyboard's durability since it's exposed on the back.Do you worry about blackberry keyboards since they're exposed as well? or any candybar phones with the keypad exposed?
OMG it's ugly and it looks like one of those chinese mini iphones !
Now if it only had been FULLflip with THREE positions, and not only 'BACKflip'....
Then you would have had three modes:
1) Closed, protecting everything.
2) Opened, to use as QWERTY-phone.
3) Backbend, to use as a bar-phone.
That would have been really great, and suited for almost all kind of users...
Lets hope someone do this further development. :)
Narsha, 04 Mar 2010Worry about the keyboard's durability since it's exposed on the back.Do most other bar phones have buttons being exposed at the front? What difference does it make if buttons are on the back? Especially if one puts the phone in a pouch.
