Dr. H, 18 Nov 2008V9 has a v bad reception, in some places it's most of the time searching for the network; I ha... moreStrange, I put the same SIM card at the exact same location, and my finding in terms of reception (on 3G) was:
V3x: the worse
V9: the best
V9 has a v bad reception, in some places it's most of the time searching for the network; I have to put the sim card into my old V3i to get a signal. I sent the v9 to service 3 times but no improvement ! It is a shamefull phone from motorola !!!!
Simon, 15 Nov 2008Motorola RAZR2 V9 GSM and RAZR2 V9m CDMA. which one provide a better sound quality for a voice... moreAs though I've never used a CDMA V9, I'd bet the Crystal Talk technology being used on both phones would be EXACTLY THE SAME.
The only differences between the 2 phones you mentioned should be:
1 supports CDMA and the other supports GSM, hence the antenna is different.
The interface maybe different as CDMA carrier may have customized its phones for its own network.
Calvin, 15 Nov 2008Can anyone tell me for this model V9...got secondary camera for video calls ? ThanksNo V9 does NOT have secondary cam for video calls. This topic has been discussed many times in this V9 forum and I'd suggest you go thru the old ones for further details.
Motorola RAZR2 V9 GSM and RAZR2 V9m CDMA. which one provide a better sound quality for a voice call and noise reduction system?
Can anyone tell me for this model V9...got secondary camera for video calls ? Thanks
Can anyone tell me, does this phone have windows media player 11? I want to buy this phone.
When i decided to go for Motorola, i have chosen two models v8 and v9. After reading tons of forums i went to my local network provider to buy V8. Still, i asked to show me both phones. I was surprised, but V8 lagged a little scrolling the menu and contacts, while V9 seemed to me very fast. So i bought a V9. The phone is very pleasant in the palm, the case seems to be very strong, durable and stylish. I prefer talking quality (almost do write sms, and search the web) and i am very pleased what i got. The voice is very natural and clear. Had a little bug with coppying contacts frim SIM to phone memory, because i didn't find a command in the V9 doing that, but after sync of the PC and the phone i finnaly did it. The battery holds up to 3 days (mostly talking), but you can save power by turning on the eco function, turning off bluetooth (exept when you need it), minimizing screen brightness... I also use black wallpaper, as a theme: just made a black photo with the V9 and use it like a wallpaper. Sound is great, but V9 does not support mp3 higher than 256kbps rate. Menu is comfortable and easy (did not expect it from moto). I really liked synchronisation soft, which offers backup\restore of your data, tranfer files, contacts, synchronises calendar and it is optional: you can do this via the cable or via bluetooth, which works perfect and quick... In my opinion, this is superb phone if you prefer talking, but not surfing the web, or sms... It is tiny, so the battery is very slim too. I went for V9 refusing my new Samsung i900 Omnia, and do not regret. Thanks for your attention and good luck...

Motorola RAZR2 V9 GSM and RAZR2 V9m CDMA. which one provide a good sound quality for a voice call and noise reduction system?
Crystal talk of Motorola is good in hearing sound quality, but what if CDMA Motorola, which is better between Crystal Talk GSM and CDMA for a noise reduction?
Does RAZR V9 have CDMA operation?
i have this beauty for about a month now and i think it rawks! no compplains except the fact that u have to "store" every pic u snap and that sometimes after typing a long text it dissapears after u press the send button @@ i dropped it three times =( but its still ok, unnoticable light scratches xD
Depends...For those who seek perfomance definitly V8, but if you prefer 3.5G choose V9. I prefer this one because of 3G

... moreVoice quality of W980 vs. V9?
V9's voice quality is like MBA players in Olympics...beating anyone at anytime.
Never heard of any other brand offers similar technology as Crystal Talk as of Nov 10 2008...

Tim08, 30 Oct 2008Hi, 100 Moto! I would like ask you. I have read in a magazine that say Motorola RAZR2 V9 is Li... moreFrom my limited knowledge, V9 is "neither" a Smartphone, "nor" does it run on Linux...because Moto still doesn't know how to make any 3G phone on the Linux platform.
So the rule is simple, all Linux Moto phones are 2G only, and all Moto 3G phones are "not" Linux based. (As of Oct 2008)
