Can anyone give me the set by set & screen shot by screen shot to copy my contacts and pictures to my sim card? I dropped my phone and it broke in half. The phone still works but no visual on the flip part

Don't buy Motorola V8, battery back cover keeps peeling off I've had 5 covers from Motorola in just over a year. Now Motorola stating I will not get another cover from them because it's now out of warranty, if this cover peels I'll ve going back to Argos claiming under 'the sale of goods act' supplying goods or part of goods not fit for purpose. Again don't buy MOTOROLA unless you want to go on there MERRYGOROUND and you will!!!!!!

HI Guys,
Can anyone tell me if the full cover of the Motorola Razr 2 can be changed, like lets say the Nokia.

i have a V8 and yes the back plate materal is pealing off so what i did is to take the battery cover off and dip it in hot water and that paint like finish just drops off to reveal a nicer crome finish. so you can try it

A love hate relationship.
At first you will be impressed with some of the features. The slim design and the large screen is a big hit. The large numbers on the key pad are simply priceless. I have owned Motorola flip cover phones like this one but all cracked at the hinge point. This one is no exeption. I will crack too just like all other Motorola flip cover phones. Don't be confused by the claims of "metal casing". The only metal cover on this phone is the back side battery cover.
I tried to give Motorola one more chance but I am completely dissapointed with this phone showing the exact same weakness in contruction as previous Motorola models. I am moving back to non-flip cover phones. Motorola move away from the flip phones!

I have had Motorola for 25 years. With this V8 I have had 4 handsets within 10 days! The same fault, they went with the wrong bluetooth configuration. No more for me. Orange are letting me pick anything else now. Motorola error was in not accepting bluetooth standardization and making it 3 minute discoverable. RAZR2 V8 NO WAY

Do you own a V8? Or Do you just want opinion/s?

Anyway...,,, here's my opinion:
I'm only 11 when I own a V8...
At first I was very impressed and i was really exited to
hold my Very special V8...then after several months I was
now very dizzzappointed about the look of my V8 it's battery
cover is peeling it started just last 2or3 months.. and the usb
/charger etc. cover was already broken... I tried to fix it with
scotch tape but it's stillll... ahhhhhhhhhrrrrhhhhhh.

If you want
to see more of my opinions look at the V8 opinions to see nearly 1500 opinionss... I'm already 12... and i still was
disappointed about the lookzzz of my V8 but it has very good features...

Fact=If your gonna buy a V8 think about it first...
V8 does not have a timer and a stopwatch feature
this is my first Motorola,Megapixel Phone,Less then 13cm
thick phone and my first flip phone...
But I dont mind that...I also think that the RAZR2 series
does not have the 2 features....

I almost forgot the sensitive keys of the V8 420mb,2gb,lux
can be only used whenever you play music.
Not like the RAZR2 V9 you can always use them whenever you

=====Wish this would help you:)=====

hi - the reviewer mentioned that itap is much more user-friendly than t9 when it comes to texting.

as i've never used a motorola b4, i just wanted other user's opinions on texting with the v8.

To all of those who usually criticize Motorola for being feature-lacking: Motorola is a dedicated Fashion phone manufacturer, so quality, design and the basics come first as always. No need to worry though, the true monster Moto's will hit the shelves later this year.
