I have had the motorola W490 for 9 months. Actually I have had 4 phones because the screen goes blank without any damages. I just keep getting the same phone sent to me with no exlanation of what the heck was wrong with it. Now a coulple of weeks after I got my fourth phone the white screen started happening again. This phone is worthless and I wouldn't recomend a w490 for any reason. I would not accept one if the CEO of Motorola paid me a million dollars.

This phone is an unmitigated piece of crap. I purchased it October '07. Today it, once again, started the dialing on its own business. This was my third issued phone. I finally gave up and they're sending me a KRZR instead of yet another W490.

My advice? Under no circumstances should anyone purchase a Motorola phone unless they have a gun to their head. I went through the EXACT same hassles with my Razr a couple years back. I had to have it replaced four times as well.

I'll never buy a Motorola again. I don't know why I was stupid enough to do it the second time.

Okay i got this phone for Christmas, and i loved it. they have it in purple, which is my favorite color, so i was pretty happy. in february, the phone started acting really weird. it was not water damaged or anything. i dialed my friends number and talked for like 5 minutes and then the phone kept pressing the number 4 5 and 6 by itself, it made a loud dialtone and i couldn't understand anything. i guess they keyboard locked or something, i still dont know. i just stuck with texting and then the next day, the backlight when out. it lit up, but that's it. it broke for absolutley no reason, so we took it back to t-mobile, and they sent us the same phone. now, in august, the phone is having the same problems, again for no reason. we took it back to t-mobile and now there sending a completly different phone that hopefully, we'll have better luck with. the phone itself has a great design, but i dont recommend it for anything else.

So I've dropped my Motorola W490 phone and totally submerged it. It turns on, and the screen lights up but...nothing else. I suppose it's completely fried...is there any reason to think it might not be?

Well I've had this phone for 4 months or so. Its a pretty cool phone. As far as standby time and picture quality I love it. I also love the fact that it has a music player and expandable memory. As for the bad... the browser sucks pretty bad and my key pad is pretty crappy. Nothing I can't live with tho. Lol. The motorola w40 gets a 7 out of 10 from me.

A basic phone with a long standby time. The materials of the phone, especially the numbers pad feel a bit cheap, but hey got if for free when I renewed my contract!
