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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You have been robbed. Get your money back!!
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
Ive realised that the guys here are very hard to please after reading the opinions on both the V3 and the sony ericsson s700i. After some time with both these mobiles I find them both easy to use as well as fully functional and handy to have. The screen on the V3 has never broke on me and I have to say I find both these phones excellent!
With reference to the comments earlier that "you should stick to Nokia if you don't know how to use technology" It is not a question of not knowing how to use the V3, it is the fact that the V3 doesn't do what you want it to do. The phone book in particular is very poorly designed. Only being able to search by the first letter of a name is rediculous, particularly when like me you have 200+ names stored. Also the voice-recognition is useless and constantly does not recognise names or dials the wrong number. Before you think that might be my fault, I previously used a Nokia 6260 and had virtualy no problems with that. The front screen is prone to breakage (mine has broken and the phone has not been dropped - Carphone warehouse also told me breakage is common on the V3)and costs £75 to repair... Motorola customer services are not interested... They do not admit to the design being fragile... They sent the phonme back un-repaired and told me to take it to the Carphone Warehouse and pay to get it fixed.. Incidently, the phone does not have a mark on it and is visually in "as new" condition, so how did the screen break?.. Beats me!
There is no doubt this phone is designed to look great, and it does. If you Love this phone then you don't have any friends )as you obviously don't need to recall many numbers!) or you just want to dial out and receive calls on a flashy looking phone. This is a good LOOKING phone NOT a GOOD phone. My rating? 2/10
does anyone know if you can sync the v3 to a pc, say if you type something on the pc, it will come up on the computer
This phone has got the look only......nothing else.
I talk a lot with my mobile phone. I found that after holding my V3 and talk for more than 10-15 minutes, my fingers and my fore arm start to get tired......this is problem with thin and wide phone! ( I have regular size hand ).
Another problem is the ear piece speaker volume too quite in more noisy enviroment!
I also notice the V3 gives me headache after talking with it for a longer period! ( Dangerous to the human brain and body parts!!!!!!!!!!! )
Wish I have the dosh to trde in for a better phone......
did anyone see the blzr black version ? it is awesome. it was only being given out to the celebrities at the oscar awards but now it is being given to the public. i know where to get it for a decent amount of anyone is looking for it.
