Second hand value of Motorola phones always drop fast. The value of my "like new" V3 is only worth 70% of the price after 3 weeks. I do not like this phone so i am trying to sell it.

Just got the phone. Looks and feels great, noy to easy to use. camera quality poor but I was using GX30 before so much of a comparison.
Main problem, I bought the phone because of the Class 1 Bluetooth (100 metres), only to find that it can recieve data from other phones but cannot send any. Absolutely gutted. maybe I'm doing it wrong, if anyone can help then it would be much appreciated.

It's a phone, so you'd think the main focus would be around making and receiving calls, exchanging contact information and sending messages. I've owned one for about a month now, and was dismayed at the awful phone book. I have over 500 contacts, and as you can imagine 30 or more start with the same characters. With the phone book in the V3 you can only input the first letter of the contacts name, so in one case I have to scroll down 22 names to get the contact I want from 45 people who's surname start with the same letter. As a business user I call many diferent contacts in a working day, and a message to Motorola, It is not possible to remember over 300 shortcuts, might just as well remember the whole damn number. If you send or receive a contact without a number from asny bluetoothe device, my phone switches off and restarts. The Software Motorola supply is not straight forward to install and use, and furthermore contrary to their sales people it doesn't sync with outlook as it comes straight from the expensive aluminin extruded box. Spen less on the box Motorola and more on the software development and customer care. Get a direct dial line to data support, I don't want to wait 5 days for a reply that eventually says, sorry we cannot give you the technical support you require.

BUT THIS PHONE HAS EXCELLENT CALL QUALITY, THE CAMERA EVEN IF ONLY LOWER RES, HAS A MUCH LOWER NOISEFLOOR THAN MAY P910, AND FAR OUT PERFORMS THE P910 IN LOWER LIGHTING CONDITIONS.

THE BUILD QUALITY IS EXCELLENT AND FEELS SOLID, THE PLASTIC BOTTOM REAR HALF IS AN ACCEPTABLE COMPROMISE TO A POKEY OUT AERIAL. OVERALL I LIKE THE PHONE, BUT IT IS SERIOUSLY LET DOWN BY MAJOR FUNCTIONALITY FLAWS WHICH ARE THE ESSENCE OF A PHONE. BIG ERROR MOTOROLA.

some people are stupid & naive...they think products from big manufacturers must be good...Nokia is the biggest, so everyone should buy only Nokia, right?
Chevrolet is much bigger than ferrari...i will anytime take the Ferrari & leave the corvette to some stupid F up guys.............!!!!!!

there are many courses for different horses. for those out there who are not rocket scientist, and simply need a good thin phone with an excellent handsfree speaker and basic functions, i found the v3 to be an excellent wireless phone. it is thin and good looking with an excellent size screen, good sound, etc.
i paid plenty for the motorola aston martin v600, but have found the v3 to be the one i used the most. just my humble opinion.
