V3= StarTac gone nuts by wrappin itself in tin foil haha, it's just like any other typical moto phones. Here's how to pick a good moto phone : Quan band, 1.3 mega pixel (NOT 0.3) video, flash, bluetooth or IR and more than 5 MB of memory, but u know motorola.. they don't got all the stuff just some.
Dwaine Fredricks, it is available on T-Mobile. It has been since October 2004. But it is very expensive with them, whereas Orange and Vodafone give it free with certain contracts.
Have had this phone for about a month now and think it is fine. I agree with the comments made about the memeory size but (I've said it b4) if I wanted to store songs on it I'd buy an ipod. Disagree with it being too wide, it is wide no doubting that but I've had no problems.
People do stop and look at it when yu use it.
Latest news for fashion "geeks": a phone has to be a little more than shiny and have a wide, almost-tv screen to be fashionable. I agree that the looks of V3 are great, but I would like to listen to more than 5 mins. of music on it and keep more than a few seconds of movies in the memory. The "fasion-phone" thing doesn't work in my case, because I cosider that fashion products don't have to be superficial. And by the way, I just found out that the aluminiunm case bends quite easily, when the phone falls on cement ...clumsy me :( ...
Its thin but its so wide and long! Also my friends totally crashed after a month. =/ I'm glad I didn't choose it.
would have definatly preferred fone casing in titanium rather than aluminum. Aluminum feels cheap and if I wanted an aluminum fone I would just wrap my current fone in tin foil!!!
my second v3 is behaving its self well but friggin hell! bluetooth eats the battery for breakfast

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.
