I was pretty keen to get this phone. After reading this discussion forum, theres no way I'm gonna get it now.
I would like to agree with Robert. Mitch, its obvious that you have never had this phone and therefore, have never had a real phone in your life if you have never had the V3. I have 2 V3's because I bought one and my brother bought me one for my birthday one week after I bought mine. He didn't know I bought it but anyway, I have 2, and I couldnt be happier with either one. Obviously, all your friends are clumsy and dropped it a hell of a lot and that's why it resets and locks itself. Before you make such comments about a phone you don't own, maybe you should get one and then tell us what you think of it.
I am also a sucker who got ripped off by Motorola that is selling us RUBBISH mobile phones ! ! !
This phone really SUCKS !! It's the worst crap I have ever seen.. pretend to be sexy but it's nothing more than a dumb crap
This phone is damn rubbish :-
The ear piece volume is so damn quiet in noisy area that I am unable to hear what the other party on the line is saying!!!!!!!!!
This phone is too wide!!!!!!!!
This phone is too slow!!!!!!!!( It's not a symbian phone )
The only good thing is the clear handsfree speaker & easy to use calculator!!!!!!!!
I am a very angry & disappointed owner......I swear I will never buy another MOTOROLA phone!!!!!!!!!!!
MOTOROLA PHONE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mitch, what did you say your phone is again...a sagging-what? Hello?? Get yourself a real phone before you make asinine remarks about a phone that you obviously can't afford. I was one of the first to buy the V3 when it was launched here and to date I can't remember it ever having locked or reset itself. Furthermore, mine syncs flawlessly with my PC (it helps to be computer-literate, of course) and it connects readily with both the bluetooth headsets I've used it with. Now, the way I figure it, either I'm some kind of rocket scientist or you and your "friends" are...(use your imagination!)
What phones do u guys actually like?? and dont say the D500 it looks and acts like a stool sample.....
I had that phone for a week and at the end I was so bored and frustrated with it I felt like flushing it down the lavatory where it belongs!

And its an all round bad phone I had one for about a week and got so bored with it I felt like flushing it down the lavatory where it belongs!
If you are looking for a phone that you can just make and receive calls and send and receives text, maybe takes photos and lets you browse on the internet, don't buy this phone. But, if you are looking for something to attach to a neck lace, then buy it. The Motorola RAZR V3 is a really bad phone. I don't have one but I know about 4 people that do, and I have looked at theirs, they couldn't be angrier. Their alliminium cases broke as soon as they got it home, one of them got the USB cable and it wouldnt detect the phone on the computer. Most of my friends sold them, or even just threw them in the trash. They wasted all their money on a phone that resets itself, locks itself, doesnt connect to bluetooth and doesn't do half the things it said it would, and decided to get a phone a little better. I own a Sagem myC5-2 and couldn't be happier with it. Sure, it doesn't have the wiz bang features of the V3, but it has a camera, it takes really great photos, it has Real Music Ringtones, Polyphonic Ringtones, and one of the best things about it, it doesn't reset and lock itself two million times a day. That's my opinion anyway, and lots of people would say, maybe it was just your particular handset, but not when it happened to 4 of my friends. The same problems. So, yeah. That's all I have to say.
the razr in my opinion is not worth the pay. The phone constantly disconnects and is lags sometimes when it comes to punching in numbers. The camera is not a very high quality and my GPRS is slow. This phone sucks.
hi im from Australia and i bought this phone yesterday for AU$39 a month.
However in the specs it stats i get an Aluminium case.. i didnt get a aluminium case with my fone... i just got a cardboard case... and i didnt get the black leather case for my phone either, and also i did not get the bluetooth headsets...
what i did get in my box was:
1. user Manual
2. Motorola v3 phone
3. USB cable
4. CD ROM
7. Angle Connector
but what is missing is my 'black leather case, and my aluminium case, and my bluetooth headset?????
arghh maybe the shop rorted me !!!!!!
James, if you can reduce your girlfriend to a showpiece just to impress your friends, I doubt there is much wisdom you can impart to anybody here. Go and post your sexist comments somewhere else!
I think that the V3 is quite stylish. It's thin and very light. It also takes clear pictures for a phone.
This is quite simple. If you just want to make and receive calls on a stylish phone, the V3 is perfect.
If you need to store lots of numbers and recall them easily, or use bluetooth or take pictures and send them easily (the V3 makes you jump through hoops to do this) or if you want a strong phone that will stand up to day to day or business use... buy something else.
I too know of somebody who broke the V3 screen by dropping it ON CARPET! But then look how thin the flip is. Style or functionality. Simple choice. You decide.
My screen broke within a week. Gonna cost me nearly £100 to fix. Very fragile.
We are not all stupid.
You can't try all the features in a phone before you buy. I got un upgrade and it was sent by post. It wasnt till I used it I realised had bad this phone is. Sometimes you have to own something before you discoved its faults.
Well put James! You are 100% right! It is just like having a fantastic looking - but very boring girlfriend!
You noticed Eli started off with "she is so beautiful" and that is what impresses people about the V3. They then forgive how badly behaved it is because it looks great. People also don't like to admit they were fooled by the looks or that they have bough a turkey!
It is without doubt the best looking phone on the market, but I tried one for a week and found it awkward and unnecessarily complicated and very boring. Trying to pair with a Bluetooth device requires reading the manual!
Also, what is the point of having the capacity to store 1000 numbers and only letting you search by the first letter?
I now have a Samsung D500.. I don't particularly like it to look at, but as a phone, it leaves the V3 standing and is so logical and easy to use.
I agree.. The V3 is a fashion statement, not a phone.
What other features Eli? You say all the other features make up for it? I agree with most of the others on here. You are being taken in by the V3's looks. If it was an ugly phones, you would find the faults!
The V3 is like having a beautiful girlfriend on your arm. She is awkward, slow, she doesn't cook and even sex isn't great, but WOW - other people are impressed I have her on my arm.. that is of course till they find out her beauty is inly skin deep.
As an accessory, the V3 is perfect, as a phone - it sucks!
Oh my god this phone is so beautiful. Yea so it only has 5mb memory and cant record video but all the other features make up for it. Besides the technology always upgrades so you just gotta be satisfied with what you have and im SO satisfied. Until another upgraded phone that I actually like comes out, ill stick to this phone
