It makes calls,receives calls,takes voice mail messages,allows text messaging,has a phone book.
That's all folks.But,hey if that's all you want,then this is a great little phone.Its not pretentious.

Unfortunately, the one I had was equipped with Scandinavian languages and probably would never find a one with those. English is available on all, so that is just a minor matter.

I pulled this phone from the bottom of a box of gear that I've had for years. The apps I downloaded send all kinds about me of stuff to people I don't know. Gov't is bad enough but at least w/this phone only the phone co. and the gov't OVERTLY have my information. Plus, the battery lasts forever, it's light as a feather, it picks up a signal in the middle of nowhere, it sends and receives texts but I CAN'T text and drive, which is a great thing. And I figured out how to send and receive emails with it. TELLME is good as Google, my voicemail is my voice memo app, and with AudioNow, I can hear radio on my phone. I'm good.

You have read some positive reviews well here's the other side:

If I had to describe it in one sentence:
Beauty with no brains.Sure it looks gorgeous but that's pretty much it!

Let me explain. I my eyes there are 3 classes of mobile phones based on intelligence or features if you will.

1. The Monochromes:These are phones that usually have black and white screens and have limited features when it comes to customizability. You can't add apps or add more features and are typically very cheap, although they have a few dedicated features like stopwatch, calculator etc..

2. Feature Phones: Usually have color screens and can access the Internet and install small usually Java apps and games. You can also add ringtones and more rather easily.

3. Smart Phones: Virtually computers in their own right but have their own problems and limitations.

Guess which one the Motofone falls under?

Answer: None of them. That's right it doesn't even fall under monochromes!

The list of features is less than impressive:
Making calls
Sending text messages (limited to 2 lines on screen!)
Address book
That's all folks! (seriously)

Although this phone was meant for developing countries its extremely bare bones feature set was not very appealing at all.

Interface:What interface, it looks like an oversized digital watch! You have to enter codes to perform certain activities (list on wikipedia)

I so liked the idea of this phone. You see it was one of the first to have an electrophoretic display which is basically electronic-ink and used very little power to run the display and virtually none if the display didn't change. But the interface was clunky and I almost had more fun navigating a calculator than this phone! People are admiring the long battery life and the almost indestructibility of the phone but I can't mirror their enthusiasm as I never had the phone long enough to do so. I had moved rather swiftly to a Nokia 1110i at the time because for one I want more features than a digital watch and 2 I want to access them in an intuitive and hassle free way.

This was the first handset I used in my life. My parents gifted me for having 2nd position in 5th class. I love this phone a lot. Really it's an awesome handset.
