there is a speakerphone on this model hope this hels its a very stylish simple no nonsense phone with voice guidance for navigation suits the elderly and visually impaired brilliantly great little phone for cals and texting and nothing else the screen is high contast but easy to read
This little phone, is light and cheap, but very stylish looking. It is a basic phone, for making and receiving calls.
You can receive texts and send texts but the display is difficult to read, and there is an alarm. The thing is, this is a basic model,, and for the money? It's great. Loud ring, ideal for using as a home phone, for when all FIVE people in the house have; run out of battery; lost their phone; put it on silent and forgotten where it is; lent it to someone etc etc, and all you want to do is speak to someone at home!!!
Also great for taking on holiday/to festivals, it's so cheap it won't make you cry when it gets lost/stolen/wet or stamped on.
If you google for the info codes you can bar calling to anything but the address book ;-)
This is the user manual for you that have lost it. http://safemanuals.com/annexe_How%20to%20Guide_MOTOROLA_MOTOFONE%20F3-_E.htm for changing the ringtone, setting the alarm and how to change all settings.
All the people here complaining about it's lack of features, well, it actually has the features, but if you want the display to be better/more modern, buy a more expensive phone ;-)
We love outr little motorola f3

best fone on the market!! only dislike is the interface.. other than that its the perfect phone 4 me. love the simplicity, durability and quality (if the the "made in brazil" version. thank you motorola!
Just think about you want to give a phone for your parents, who wants to reach you to contact. They want a simplest phone where they can dial a number.
How many times you have tried to explain the blah, blah features a phone has got.
They just want to listen to their son's or daughter's voice
I just love this phone. I bought Motofone F3c (CDMA Version) in Bangalore, India for just INR 600. This phone my entire communication needs. I am always reachable on my number........
Seriously, this must be the WORST cell phone I've ever put my hands on.
Cryptic display, poor call quality, weak battery, no memory, and it takes a awful lot of time searching for available networks when in the move. So... why can this be considered a cell phone at all??
Ok, it looks good, but my old and trusty Nokia 2600 from 2002 puts this thing to shame.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2009I think fred flintstones cell phone had more features than this.:)
I was crazy the first time i got this fone but now am sooooooooooo over it check out the sony ericsson w980 am getting it soon!!!! it ROX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just click on this link:http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_w980-2249.php
roger, 11 May 2009the battery bar fades away sometimes or get shorter but if you restart the phone its okay agai... moreNo, as soon as I turn the phone on the battery indicator shows the level of charge and then disappears. The signal indicator will come and go as the signal changes. If I have it in my pocket and take it out, it recieves a stronger signal and shows just the change in bars. The battery indicator obviously doesn't come back because it's level doesn't change. Niether stay black as a static mode, they fall off to gray. I'm guessing it's an internal or screen problem. The battery life has also started to fall off, it only holds a charge for 2-3 days. Very disappointing, I truely loved the form factor and simplicity of this fone, but, the frustsration and issues have left me looking for a replacement. Perhaps a Nokia 1680 or a Moto W233
