I bought the V550 (which is just an upgrade of this phone I think) about half a year ago. It's been a good phone, the memory could be improved and the video recording only last for about 30 second however.
Recently I haven't been able to text message anyone. It lets me type about 3 letters than completely freezes.
If anyone knows how this can be fixed please contact me!!
my little brother got the v550 for christmas which is more or less exactly the same as this phone. i think it is good howver the memoery on it was poor not allow the videos and song he wants
yes indeed this phone can play mp3, however, memory can easily get clogged as it has no expansion option. great phone though.
i have one and it really plays mp3(preety good actualy) but the memory in pulling him down.overall is a very good phone.i never had problems with charging or system to low.

i got kind of confused on the last review i posted below, if you want to setup your bluetooth you go on 2 your menu, then to SETTINGS in the bottom right hand corner, then scroll down 2 CONNECTION, select connection, then select BLUETOOTH LINK, then scroll down to SETUP, and select setup, after you have done that scroll 2 POWER then select it, change to power on, after you have done that press back, then if you want you can change NAME, but you can always leave it as the default name, MOTOROLA PHONE, after that click back, them scroll up 2 HANDS-FREE, select hands-free, then select LOOK FOR DEVICES.REMEMBER YOU HAVE TO BE NEXT TO A PERSON WITH A BLUETOOTH PHONE, AND THEIR BLUETOOTH HAS GOT TO BE SWITCHED ON ASWELL. ~then you can get FREEBIES from your mates~
this phone is great, the bluetooth is fab, if u want to set up ur bluetooth go to menu, then to setup, then to conectivity, then go to setup, turn ur blurtooth on, then go back and click on handsfree, then find devices. its easy.
hey mike , this phone has bluetooth automatically , you go into settings and there's a bluetooth option there. The cable that they were on about is a data cable , they cost £15 and you plug it in the bottom of the phone and into your USB port in your PC and you can take mp3's and photo's and transfer them to your pc or vice versa. hope this helps mate
hey mel , when you switch the phone on it comes up with your number automatically and if you call orange they will give you the number aswell if you give them your address and postcode to bring up the account.

great phone, best i have had so far by miles. bluetooth is a big big bonus and the USB port is very convinient, photo quality is good appart from when you want to set a photo as a wallpaper and you have it to fit the full screen the picture goes blury and thats annoying. The look of the phone is brilliant and stylish, and it is of good quality, The phone is a cute little phone, and the weight of the is about right i would say, THE PHONE IS JUST FANTASTIC, I RECOMMEND A**********************
i posted that comment below and its all false because i have sorted it all out now and its a great little phone and the network is good.
hi i have got the moto v500 today and it is a great phone but i think the netwotk is crap! orange network is dow so i cannot register the sim or swip card so that means i cannot top up or call out or send a txt, unbelievable! i am annoyed, orange needs to shape up or all of there costomers will change networks. if it carrys on i will get my v500 unlicked and change to a more reliable network! oh and could someone tell me wheres you phone number when you get the phone coz i still cant find it, i know i may sound stupid ha ha ha please help
Hey ,i know im from vodafone and work in upgrades so what am i doing with an orange phone? To tell you the truth its better on PAYT with orange definately !Well what can i say about this phone? The downfall that i found with this phone straightaway was the taking the photo's! When you take a photo you have to wait at least 3 seconds before you can store it or else the fault is,that it becomes blared and you can't see it. So besides that its all good right? Yeah it is!The camera quality is very good for the price that you pay. 4X Digital zoom is very good. You can even make your own photo slide shows and albums! The MP3 shorts that you can use for your ringtones are awesome. You can store alot of sound files on there , i mean ive got 20 mp3 shorts and god knows at least 50 pictures and im still at 68% memory usage. It's a little phone with alot of space. You can also, if you have certain things that are not wanted to be seen by certain people LOCK CERTAIN FOLDERS! This is the first time that i have had a phone where you can actually lock your folders , so someone wants to look at my photo's they have to unlock it first ! Speakerphone works brilliantly , bluetooth is awesome! Ahhhhhhhhhh the bluetooth where would we be without free files exchanged between friends? The only other downfall is that i wish it had video capture. That would make this phone an awesome phone. The coverage is very good. The only way this phone will turn itself off is if you overload it with too many things at once , for example receiving a picture message whilst trying to text and have a game going all at once. It retails now at £90 so is a very good bargain and i would urge anyone who wants their first camera phone with bluetooth to get it.
And if you've got through this and not got bored well done !
