It's good to come back after such a long time, I have a V9 Ferrari Limited Edition in my collection and has been contributing in this forum occasionally on and off. V9 is still one of my favorite "phone", I mean a basic communication tool in which, incoming and outgoing call quality are of utmost importance. I also own a smartphone HTC HD2 now but my calls are all made from my current Motorola E8 which has much longer talk time leaving the HD2 as my backup and organizational tool.
Today, I only collect the old Motorolas, I have this V9 Ferrari Limited Edition (weekend use), 2 ROKR E8s (1 new as back up and the other in use everyday), 1 U9, 1 V3i, and proudly announcing that I have just purchased a V8 (mint condition in original box) recently waiting for it to arrive. When I use the V9 Ferrari, it reminded me of the V8 even though both have different OS. CrystalTalk feature from my experience is best on V8 and V9 as compared to E8 and U9 maybe due to the its size, Reception too is better on V8 and V9. I'm not so sure whether the current Motorolas have the same CrystalTalk quality as I suspected the manufacturing quality control is no longer controlled by Moto themselves - hope I'm wrong on this. To me, CrystalTalk feature is still THE FEATURE that should be built in all mobile phones. For those who are not aware of it, CrystalTalk was patented and only produced by Motorola on reducing background noise while automatically increasing speech volume so that the other end can still hears you loud and clear enough in noisy environment. This is one technology I got hooked on until today and I don't see any phone manufacturers making headway on it except on bluetooth headset manufacturer like Jawbone. I'm on Motorola CommandOne now with CrystalTalk technology and its really good too.
The reason I use my E8 instead of my V9 was basically the shorter talk time of the V9 as compared to my E8 which is a lot better but now that I've just purchased another V8, I'll be looking for the BX81 or 80 battery with an extended battery door cover for much longer talk time hopefully doubling or more talk time from it. With it, I'll be selling off one of my E8 and will be looking to add an ugly but tough phone collection - the Tundra Va76r.
Since its launch in 2007, V8 and V9 are still sought after by certain phone enthusiasts who are looking for an "ultimate basic phone" while ROKR E8's 2008 launch, it still looks "futuristic" and different, even until today I got guys asking me out of curiosity what kind of phone that I'm carrying that's different - looks totally black without the keypads but with a big "C" (the fastscroll wheel) design on it.
Let's hope Google can revive the Motorola phone division and continue to refine the CrystalTalk technology, this would make it a better "true" phone when background noise will never irritates the other end during conversation while volume, clarity and strong reception are and should be the ultimate "must have" in all phones that we use in my opinion. Just look at what kind of signal/reception strength they have built-in in some well branded smartphones these days, which cost as much as a notebook, ironic don't you think?
iam using motorola v9, but i need more java application.also some diffrent software .from wher i get

Hy guys any one kne where its body casing can b found??

1 )- with razr2 v8 yes but v9 not much as v8. Bcoz the preloaded opera of v8 is better and has a better interface and features. But loading flash content is not possible.
1) Can v9 be used for heavy browsing?
2) Can we open multiple apps in dis phone?
3) Should i buy dis one or w8 for v10
Stuart, 18 Feb 2011Hi Marko,
I got the same issue too although I didn't really count how many hours of standby... moreStuart!
1. Does Motorola RAZR2 V9 can copy and paste writing in the message (example, we wrote a message, saved it in draft. Then we open that message that had been saved in draft, copy it, then we choose Create message, paste it)?
2. Does Motorola RAZR2 V9 minimize its browser when browsing internet?
3. You said that Motorola phones were generally more solid built. Did you mean Motorola RAZR2 V9 casing really made in good metal material, better than other brands that have the same price?
4. For standby time, if we reduce its brightness and turn off the 3G signal when isn't used, it will not help?
Thank for your answer!
