I had the phone for aboyt a year, and had to replace it 3 times, and the cell phone company told me it was normal wear and tear; Yeah right!
I had this phone for about a month and the screen just went blank. Still works fine but can't see a thing on the screen.
dont watse your money unless you have loads of time to handle replacing it. zero reliabilty, and you cant fix it- just buy a new one. so much for my allegence to motorola, 3rd phone in 1 year.
I had this phone for a little over a year....Im talking like a month. Within 6 months of getting the v555 that silver piece on the front fell off. Then July 31st the screen went dead. I had to purchase a new phone, I ended up losing all my numbers. I went back to my trusty NOKIA. I did like the set up of this phone, but with the charging and other problems I had I wouldn't suggest it.
This is the worst phone on the planet. I haven't even had it for a year and it already doesn't work. I never have any service and I've had to replace my battery 5 times. Listen to me and don't get this phone.
This phone sucks. DON'T get it! I've had it replaced three times. The microphone and ear piece keep going out. It sucks.. Pick a different phone.
I just bought this Phone too Replace my Sony Ericsson 500a AND This phone IS way Better than the Sony I had. I love the Bluetooth feature and the Camera Pics are much more Clearer and Better Looking. I would recommend this phone too anyone who's in the Market for an First Time Cellphone casue it's easy too use and Lots of stuff availble for it.
i have this phone and its the best iv done everything to it and it still works
i have this phone, kicked throw adn all things that are not to be done with a phone. but still i have reception everywhere no drop calls. this phone is what you call a phone.
I love this phone. I had an LG before but had to deal with Verizon, now I have this phone and it's JUST about as good as the LG (lg had a couple fancier features)...but I do NOT have to deal with Verizon. YAY! Worth it, I have had no problems with reception at all..and I like all the little extras, like the zoom on the camera, etc. The more I use it, the more little things I find that are pretty cool. Love it.
My Moto V550 has now been in constant use for nearly 5 months, and performance has been faultless. No “hangs”, no dropped calls, and reception in areas where my previous Samsung handset couldn’t find a signal. I live in a hilly country area, notorious for poor cellphone reception, but have had no problems. The phone is on Vodafone NZ.
I like the V550 because it has clear and adequately loud voice reception, a great choice of ring and alarm/reminder tones, user-friendly menus, a good email system, and a decent degree of owner-configurability. The screen is bright and clear, and even a newbie-texter like me can manage the buttons well. The personal information management tools are a real plus for me – I use the calendar and reminders a lot, to augment a poor memory!!
The camera is adequate for capturing exactly the size of image which is easily sent as an email attachment, or MMS. Bearing in mind its miniscule lens, it does OK!
The phone feels well built, and solid in the hand, with no sloppiness or Razr-type creaks and groans. I can easily operate it one-handed when required, and the speakerphone is a great help when I need both hands for other things, like pen and coffee. Battery life is good on stand-by, but goes down pretty quickly when talking or surfing. Gaming doesn’t seem to affect it as much, though.
I have loaded a few useful apps, by far the best of which is a full-internet browser, “Opera Mini”. This superb and completely FREE piece of software allows you to visit ANY webpage, not just WAP accessible ones. Look for it at www.mini.opera.com.
My only minor grumbles about the V550 are its modest memory – a card-slot would’ve been nice – and the button layout for “answer” and “hang-up”. The button for delete when composing text or email is right above the red “hang-up”, so I have to be careful to hit the right one, or it ditches everything I just laboriously entered!!
So in terms of bang-for-your-buck, I reckon the V550 makes pretty good sense. It may not have the bells and whistles of a Jasjar, or the sex-appeal of a Razr, but neither has it the prices of those devices. You gets what you pays for!
The worst. This cell phone not works properly and its battery is only for less than one day. I leave the battery charging all night long and almos 7pm it finishies. Battery, main board and flat have been replaced and the problem persists. So disappointed.
i would not suggest this phone to anyone..nothing but problems !! in 1 year it has been replaced three different times..going tommorow to replace with another brand other tham motorola...
This is probably a simple question, but I can't get a ringtone to download from my computer to the V555. I have a data cable, but can't find the process on how to do this. Any help? Thank you!!
There is only one thing about this phone that kind of makes me mad and has made me already get a replacement phone after only a about a year, and that is how the charger plugs into the phone. It seems to work fine for a few months then all of a sudden the phone will stop taking a charge and you can't do anything about it except get a new one, or just not use your phone.
I like it but in fact its a little bit expensive but good thigs cost money and had to better
Hey Motorola! I LOVE my V555 Flip Phone but i cant seem to e-mail my pictures to my e-mail so i can print them out!any advice would be great! Thanks*~
