It's a great device for a good price; I'm very satisfied [Brazil]. The earpieces are awful, but they're 3.5mm standard, and can be easily replaced by better ones of your choice.
I own this phone. It is quite amazing. To answer the ear piece question. I have submerged this phone and the speakers and mic's are working fine. To answer the person about the processer speed. WHY? 800mhz with 1.25g rom and 512ram is excellent. Mutitasks perfectly with no slow down. To answer 2.2 question, again why? it has the features you get on 2.2 but on 2.1 with exception of saving apps to the sd card. To fix this download app Monster (free). Defy will go 2.2 in the new year (2011). Further to this the hero feature of this phone is that its life proof, not that it can mutitask.
MotoBlur is good, improvements have been made. I can honestly say I enjoy the live streaming compared to the refresh button on a HTC or samsung. No need for usless FB and Twitter apps either, which is refreshing to think a manufactuer can work with these social networking companies to offer a great solution.
Finally its android which means apps, email, maps and Navigation, Music, everything in your world in your hands.
Want a lifeproof 3.7inch touch screen which is light weight (13mm thin, 113grams) with a massive battery which last all day. Then buy this one!
Hope this helps someone.
I really wanted to buy this handset, but issues with the earpiece are reported from every part of the world :-(
@GSMarena: if you would write a review about Defy, could you please take a look at this topic as well?
The next defy should be equipped with xenon flash, 1.2 gigs cpu, xvid/divx player, and a a front facing camera.
[deleted post]Suggest you visit t-mobile's website and key in the zip code for the nearest shop with this phone available, or see if they take order online.

How I can root My device ?
I'm looking for some phone, that should be phone in first place and smart phone in second. My needs are :
Announced : 2010
QWERTY keyboard : Without QWERTY
Height : Less than 110 mm
Operating system :Android
Display size : 3.2" or more
I think the Motorola Defy is the excellent choice.
Someone can propose better option ?
This is the phone that browse the net with flash,plays all kinds of movie videos with an android player,has a big multi-touch screen,it fits in small hands and you don't have to be afraid of a fall to the groudnd...Even if it does't have the clearest screen or whatever else it can replace a pc and be used by anyone,from an athlete to a tech geek.I aproove 100%
I really want this phone, but there is a speaker problem with it...
:( I'm not happy now.
