i had this phone right after the A768 and i was very dissapointed. it's basically a phone filled with hype. the only good thing abou tthis phone is that it is so slim and light, but feature wise it is garbage. mototrola could have did some thing better with their money by promoting a better phone.slim is in but the razor is not. NOTHING BUT HYPE.
coolest phone i've got so far.
apart from being unable to send via infra-red and deletion of entire entry from sim card, the phone is flawless i guess.
sad to say some people are unlucky to purchase a faulty phone whereby everything goes wrong for them and those how are not used to it's functions.
took me sometime to get use to this phone.
Motorola have a big factory in China. The point is not where the phones are made, it is a matter of quality control!!! For example, a lot of goods sold in Japan are made in China......but they are of top quality......because of the straight QC standard requested by the Japanese!!!
*Everything these days is made in China! So are mobile phones...
I've got V3 for quite some time. It looks fabulous, but inside it's exactly the same as my old V80, nothing new.
All in all - extra cool fone! Try to find the "limited" black edition.
well i just wanted 2 buy v3 but its all made in CHINA i mean isnt there any v3 which is made in usa or any othr country ? i accept Taiwan or thailand too but not china
All that people talk about the V3 is the look......other than that; almost nothing else is good !!!!!
ive had my V3 for a few days now and my initial thought are that Im very impressed, it is probably the coolest looking phone available at the moment. I use it for work and it connects to my PC and my Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Carkit perfectly well. The signal is fine the call clarity is fine and the menu system is as easy to use as my previous Nokia 6260. The V3 doesn't have a massive memory we all know that, but if you want an MP3 player buy an iPod!! all the phones Ive used for MP3s have never has as good quality sound as a dedicated personal music player anyway. The battery life isnt great but again its still comparable with my Nokia giving 2 days use with bluetooth and gprs on all day and night. with regards to the software I found it very easy to set up with the supplied usb cable and also eay to use my response to people slating the phone and software are simple if you cant do it read the manual!!! lets be honest woul Motorola sell these phones with this software if they didnt work together?? Overall its the first Motorola Ive had and I would consider another one.
1.Best design ( Super Slim and Color )
1.Very weak signal service
2.Short Battery Performance
- How to make the signal service more stronger?
- From which country was V3 made originally?
I just got it. It's a beautiful phone but the battery cover will not stay on. This is "out of the box" problem. The e-vendor is giving me hard time and doesn't want to exchange it.
I bought this phone with an O2 contract, I could not get the software to load so contacted O2 for help, they just emailed me a copy of the instructions that are on the CD. I tried to load again, still no good, the software would not initiallise..it just hung at that stage. Contacted them again, they couldnt be bothered to reply to me so after three days waiting I took the phone back to the shop and cancelled the credit arrangement.. I got a nokia, it works perfectly, does video/stores LOTS of music. Motorola V3 might be real trendy but it just wont do what the blurb says it will. A waste of time and money. And Boo to O2 too.
i really,realy,really want a v3 but most people that i talk to about this phone say that it is a bad phone. The only problem is that they don't tell me what the problem is. Would this phone be suitable for someone like me that will use the phone for calls, texting, bluetooth and taking a few pictures? Please, Please let me know.
I just received my BLZR yesterday. I had a razr and gave it to a best friend and now I have the limited edition blzr. Its awesome. I could have held out for the 1150, but chose not to. I dont need a lot of features and this phone will always be one of a kind. There truly isn't anything else like it out there.
Got this phone when they first came out. Used it for about couple of months. Now I am selling it so that I can get a Sony Ericsson S710a. Moving towards more feature side.
Hmm, I suspect that Mark may work for Motorola! He has systematically gone through what everybody else has complained about in this forum and pointed out that “his two are fine”!.. I find in particular the statement that "the phonebook is fine" to be at odds with the facts! Nobody has said that their phone book is faulty, just that it is badly designed, which it is. A 2000 number storage capacity phone book that only allows you to search by the first letter of the name is a poor design.. period… especially when compared to other phones.. and this really is the issue here.. it is the COMPARISON that matters. Many people have complained about different "faults", but if you put those to one side - or even if the V3 were 100% reliable (which it most certainly isn’t), the fact that it under performs in almost all areas BY COMPARISON to similarly priced alternatives makes this a poor phone reliant only upon its good looks to win us over. I reiterate what somebody said earlier, if this phone looked "ordinary", it would be judged by its performance alone and nobody would buy it.
aight the phone is cool looking and all but the features are not that much. i mean sure it has bluetooth but what r u gonna use it for if u have only 5 MB of space. there are also mobiles with much better screens like the new nokias, or even better the 200 000 colors screen for samsung. thats something u could watch viseos off of.
can you people tell mer what the V3 is like for texting. i only use a phone for text and calls and at the moment by nokia is broken and am considering the V3 (black). is it ok or do you have to click the buttons hard.
i tried in the shop but it wasn't switched on. and the spacing of keys seems quite far. is it just a matter of getting used to it coming from a nokia?
This is very true of what timbo said below :-
9. the speaker except when in speakerphone mode is too soft so I have ended up using speakerphone to my ear when outside.
This phone is big and the features are very average. Although I am using one; it's not a great phone!!
