Hi just a quick note to say that i took delivery of my second brand new v3 today, hope this on lasts longer!
To Dwaine Fredricks
This fone is avaliable on T-Mobile Contract. www.carphonewarehouse.com - search for t-mobile contract fones.
Have my v3 neary a month now and its starting to play up on me. when i am in the menu, The screen freezes and goes white, then goes back to idle screen. Also colours on screen r fuzzy sometimes when i open the flip, im bringing it back to the shop tomorrow where i got it to see if there is a fault in it, if there is i will demand a replacement. Apart from this i was pleased with my v3 and it is the coolest looking mobile that i have seen. i definately wont be cancelling my insurance on it anyway!
No1 - This is a slim phone and confortable to wear but NOT comfortable to speak (too wide and way too flat) and to send sms (again because too wide). Also be very careful when speaking not pushing it too hard against your face or else the flip may get some slack. Motorola service ain't that good so don't be careless.
No2- It is made in china and believe me the construction seems solid but in certain areas doens't aspire confidence. The flip screen can become dodgy after a while by taking some slack and the battery compartment clip can get very squicky aswell.
No3- The features motorola has on this phone are only a show off. They are clever people and do not want you to think you're spending that kind of money just for style. Imagine, why use an mp3 player with 5mb of memory only ? Why use a very mediocre camera ?
In other words these features are just a smart move from M.
3. This is unique phone but not as unique as they want to pass off. Nokia 7280 is another "unique" phone and while i hate that desing i find it way too uncoventional. The V3 passes as the slimmest phone , which is true, but it is quite wide actually and while folded it isn't soooo slim as it seems to be
No4. The menu is same as my v300 and to be honest got bored with it rather quickly
All and all, this is a fashion phone with a smart design, and if you only wana pay 20 pounds for it, go to www.mobilefonezone.net/v3razr.htm and join the list for the phone, trust me, there are lots of people who cant wait to get their hands on this phone, so get in before even more people wanna join up
The Bad(for a smartphone): small memory, vga cam, no mp3 but has mp4(wth!)
To Dwaine Fredricks: the best advice to you is to switch from T-Mobile.
I love this phone its soo cool and slim, why could it not be availble for T-Mobile?
no fair.Will it ever be availble for t-mobile?
hi, i bought this phone yesterday but im not quite sure how to change the date and time. Also when i record a voice, i can hear it but it is not as loud, even if the sound is all the way up. Any comments, help?
The Good, Create Lots of Controversy
The Bad, Create Lots of Controversy
Exactly the Market MOTO Wanted to Target
Nothing Else Matters
Like all other, the phone needs to be set up for your specific tele-provider, contact them, and they'll send an sms, all you need to do is to accept it :-)
(If you buy a phone with a contract this is usally done for you)
This phone is definitely cool in design, but the biggest flaw is the absence of memory expand, in other words there is no memory card option here, which makes this phone just a pretty toy for the fantastic price...if Motorola wants to compete it needs to be more advances for the less price...and so far I only see lots of arrogance coming from that side. Forget about it.
I think people who complain about the lack of features on their V3s are either total idiots or just attention-grabbers who want everybody to know that they spent MONEY on their phones. I mean if I really wanted to take pictures/videos to impress my girlfriend I'd use my digi-cam! I knew that the V3 is a fashion phone when I bought it and I'm totally satisfied with it. The V3 gets my vote!
Try reading the review about samsung d500... That fone (d500) is really a great handset. Best features & simple yet cool design... Unlike the V3. Thin but wide & it lacks many features. Heheheh. (How I wish next month d500 would be available here in manila)
What the heck... only VGA camera, no recorder, no expansion slot, made in China (which is even worst than made in USA, I think). I want my money back :(. But, seriously, Motorola could have done something better for 700 $. Too bad the functions don't measure up to the design. ... hmm and now all I have to do is think of 1000 people worth writing in my agenda :))
when i recieve a picture message why do i have to go to a website to see it can i not just see it on my fone instead of connecting to the internet and when i put bluetooth on and me friend does he finds me phone but when he tries to send something it just always fails whats the point in bluetooth if its just going to keep doing that all of the time
