Dan, 28 Jul 2008This is THE anti-iphone. It has three basic features: calling, sms-ing and setting an alarm. I... moreAnd in the age of technological minituarisation it's a decrepit, archaic, over-the-hill old-timer that's been dressed in tinsel in a weak attempt to pass itself off as a contender in the modern market.
Anyone that defends this phone may as well call themselves a neo-luddite, or move in with the Amish.
I could not use this phone for more than a few minutes. The text is enormous and the icons are very tiny. Reading text messages is impossible, as is scrolling through your address book. Only 5-6 characters are displayed, so if you have NAME CELL and NAME HOME you cannot tell the difference.
The phone frequently locks up and freezes upon simple tasks such as opening the address book. So much so that it is practically unusable. The center button for navigating the 'menu' is unreliable.
Worse, many of the basic phone settings (like turning off the key tone) you need to change with a special code only found in the user's manual that you must memorize.
Please don't buy this phone! The Motorola C139 is a barebones phone that is far superior and about $10 cheaper.
This is THE anti-iphone. It has three basic features: calling, sms-ing and setting an alarm. It's liberating to know that there's nothing else that your phone can do. It's a piece of clarity in the clutter of our daily lives.
Excellent phone, it serves it's purpose - calls, SMSs, alarm, vibration. This is what cell phone is :) Recommendation for those who already have another phone (all-in-one) :)
as u r saying that this phone get stuck while calling n not get switch off n you have to take out battery well i wanna tell u that there is no problem with the modle yor phone cought virus thats y it got hanged again n again kindly get it checked in service center.
this phone has got the looks similar to an high end phone if you really think what u have for the price..sleek design..speakerphone is good n clear even if u r in the middle of ridin ur bike....rest of the things like msging,ringtones is just too hopeless...no way on this earth i can read my inboxes peacefully...crap!!
This phone is not a good phone, waste of money. It always get stuck while call is in progress, and dosent even get switch off. Then i have to remove its battery and put it again. Well my opinion, dont ever buy this phone. Ya but just only 1 good feature it is too slim and fits in wallet, kool.
What an absolute pile of pants this phone is, even at its cheap price, its still next to useless .. would sooner use two tin cans and string than persevere with this pile of phoo... don't waste your money
i love this phone, i got mine yesterday for £10.00 it's realy good
So far I'm totally impressed with this phone. It has every feature I need, and NONE that I don't!
Is there a way to show the date with the time like in the graphic? Mine only shows the time when idle?
This phone is like a calculator.Its very cheap and convenient to use.Keypad is flat and battery..........its very very very good.Anyway very cheap and stylish model by Motorola.
For silent mode, Just put the volume down all the way. (Press down button you'll see)
You can get the manual in english (and some other languages) on motorola.com
To activate silent mode you have to press down until you read "0" and one more time to put on the vibrating.
No double calls managing on this phone from my experience.
For those of you needing the ENGLISH manual.
