F£ is designed for developing markets and has some good ideas. But for UK it is poor value compared to low end Nokia, or to the basic Alcatel phones sold at Woolworths or Orange, which are attractive, smaller, colour screens etc. I was going to buy an F3 at fones4u(for my mum)but the one offered did not work. And I thought it ugly and clunky. It is not a cool fone, not a fashion statment
The best thing about the Motorola Motofone F3 cell phone is its beautiful design.
That is the only thing about it that is good. Its worst feature is the extra large font size of letters that make it such a nightmare to read and write SMS messages --- in the process defeating the purpose for which its was supposedly designed to achieve: simplicity.
They should make an F3i with a 10 color display (pixel display) with slightly smaller characters. Nothing else, same simplicity, same low price. VERY NICE ~!
What was wrong with people who designed font for messaging? They should have had their eyes and sense of design (or luck of) tested. It's the most ridiculous font I have ever seen. Don't ever buy one!!!!
I'm not really sure why people complain about the feature of this phone as it only does phone calls & text messaging, that's about it.
It looks cool & cheap. Ideal for young kids & old folks whom having the hard time reading or hearing. Not the best phone out there but it's brilliant!! I'm going to get one for business calls only.
Simply the most simplistic phone with the most basic functions.
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.
