This phone was designed for people who wants basic mobile functionality (calls/sms) with no whistles, which is a good thing because there is a lot of us that rarely use the camera or dont need mms and other "fun" features. This phone does have a great battery life since it just contains to the basics.
Using this phone will cause you to have an aneurism, it is the most pathic excuse for a simple phone, there is nothing simple about its. text messiging is impossible, i sold mine within 24hrs. DONT BUY ONE
wow i'm in loved :)) ill soon change my w810i with this f3 :))) ..right...come on guys ...try nokia 1110i, 1112 , even nokia 1100, 1101 ..etc better life battery ..
This phone is probly intended to be used by older ppl and kids and for that purpose is great!
Finally something I can buy for my mom. :)
My folks are seniors (bad eyes, veek hearing), Love this phone. Big screen, loud speaker - motorola hit bingo with this phone for older people.
Thumbs up to motorola for a simple phone for people who would like uncluttered tech. My only frustration is it is not tri-band but for a £15.00 phone what do you expect.
I believe it is only good for basic voice communication, not good even for SMS
A very Nice phone..9mm .. in karachi it worth rs2000 which is Xtremely cheap.. best mobile for my little 11yr old brother
You might just as well drop all your coins down the local drain than use it to buy this phone.
There are better phones.
More use from a nokia 5210.
Maybe Motorola will send their design team to the psychiatrists over this booboo be doo.
Nice desing but ugly and not user frendly fone...my other fone is broken ...a had no money and i buy this one....big mistake...sms messages hard to reed werry pour signal...etc. Buy a nokia ! the cheapest one is more better then this fone!
Waste of money and nervs!!!
The fone is very sexy,but the face is ugly..
and the network is very weak.But i think its
okey for people who cant afford expensive
phones and for students.
Goodluck with your try next time i think you
will do better.
Can enyone tell me after how much time,(in average i talk about 15 min./day),have to recharge the battery, because mine doesn't last for more than 3 days and i wanna know if i have a loose baterry?For a phone who uses so little energy,3 days seems so little period.
Have you people praising this phone for its simplicity actually used the phone? Simplicity is one thing, complete un-user friendliness is another. My freind bought this phone, and was complaining of how un user freindly it was. I thought she was just not good with technology. Boy was I wrong. This would have to be the hardest to use, most frustrating device I've ever touched. If your after a simple phone, do yourself a big favour and go for a cheap bottom end nokia. Even the cheapest nokia you can your hands on will still be better than this.
Nice try motorola but not quite the right market.
Maybe the phone was aimed at people working in desserts who need to see the screen in bright sunshine.
SMS is problematic due to limitation on characters shown but if your after voice only maybe this can be excused.
If your after a phone for quality ringtones then forget it once again its back to basics.
Motorola should go back to the drawing board and
1) the black and white screen should be higher resolution with grey scale option.
2) minimum of 40 chord polyphonics and introduction of T9 texting with addition to dictionary to save (no itap just old multi tap entry)
Also the battery life is very poor.
Resale value is going to be none existant as its on sale for £15 by Phones4U so if you have to sell it on your going to be lucky to get £10 trade in from a store (privately its worth no more than £7.50 at a push).
ugly display font. hard to understand sms massage. i would prefer moto c115 than this phone although it had slim design. with a little more money, the moto c series are more reasonable to buy. especially, the new c119 :)
The handset looks nice but the texting is a joke. I bought one and took it back to the shop inside one day. If you just want to talk it maybe okay, I do not know why any company would waste their time making such a phone, its a joke.
i think i got this phone at amazing price.... around 30usd. i bought an export set. but phone is dam dumb dun use it for smsing!!!
Have had it for a few days now, and I like it very much.
It's really just a phone. Just a good phone. The reception and sound are very good. The design approach is interesting.
A very good "just a phone". Which is good in this ocean of over-featurized gadgets. Very cheap at 29€ without lock.
Thanks motorola for the first "think different" phone I've seen in a long while.
Even when using the new EPD display technology, the phone only offers a paltry 4.5 hours of talk time. The Motofone is designed for calling, period. Anything aside from that is just going to be an experience in frustration, including SMSing.
The product doesn't justify the price its being offered at. I'm frankly quite disgusted at this cheap attempt by Motorola to market its phone at an exorbitant price to a niche based on it kewl name and kewl slim factor (RAZR, KRZR, SLVR anyone?). Pathetic.
