I suggest the Samsung T809 over the RAZR because the noise is more crisp, and it has an easier to use silent mode (for kids) and if u thought RAZR was physically appealing, the 809's better. I had the V3 Black, which often lagged after i put music into it (simple midis shouldn't have caused it to lag) but yes, it lags. Also, it occasionally 'locks up' meaning that there are some buttons I can't press. Miraculously, a day or two later, it unjams itself, but that's happened twice and it's quite a piss-off. I also prefer the Samsung alarm clock over the RAZR one because Samsung ones can be set to go off only on weekdays or only on weekends along with the basic alarms. All in all, the RAZR is overrated. If you like the way the RAZR looks, i suggest the Samsung Blade or the T809 which is a slider.
This phone is completely over-rated. I have had nothing but problems connecting with the Bluetooth earpiece. Even the outlet I bought it has given up and has offered me a very new Samsung product which look similar. This is a horrible product.
This phone serves me well, but you cant get any "new content" without either connecting it to the computer via bluetooth, or getting 3rd party software to modify the phone itself
you know.. http://images.gsmarena.com/j/pics/motorola/motorola_v3i_00.jpg
in that picture, where it says "video = camera"
could you change that to like.. something else? i.e. phone book? inbox?
The crappy memory in this phone is a major downfall in this phone in my opinion but the size makes up for it. Other phones are too bulky and cannot fit in my jeans etc., the place where I like to keep my phone and the thin design of the Razr can do this. However recenly (about 3 months after purchase) all my keypad backlighting has gone! Everyday a new key light "disappeared" much to my dismay. Now if I want to use my phone I have to bend my screen to see the keypad properly. Very disappointing and a horrible phone in terms of durability seeing as I have not even dropped the phone and it is only 3 months old.
to add addresses and multiple contact numbers for one person save the contact to the fon not the sim card
Okay I don't own a razr v3 ,but my friend owns one & i used her phone a couple of times.
Sleek, Thin Design
Supports MP3 ringtones
Tends to freeze
Takes awhile to start up
Goes blank after awhile
to sum everything up its a good phone for phone calls & if you want to show off with the design & flashy songs but other than that its like every other phone- its not perfect.
people who come on here and say that its complete crap, have you ever thought that your not handeling the phone properly?
i bought this phone yesterday and when u turn on blue tooth the only ring phone u can use is an annoying beep one!!! can anyone help !!??
Here are some suggestions.
If you have the picture or video on your screen, the menu option is available to you on your V3.
1. Press the menu key. It is the '-' sign at the top of your keypad.
2. You will now be placed in MMS Menu.
3. Move down to 'Forward' and select that.
4. Now select 'OK' from this screen.(Notice that the picture you want to send is on this screen at this time.)
5. Now you have the phone list. Move down to your friend's number.
6. Select that.
7. You are now ready to send the picture.
Your friend should have a compatible phone capable of displaying such content.
There is no "address" field for any contacts, this is the only mobile phone that expects you to take a Whitepages with you everywhere. There is no "where" field in the calendar, so when I'm away from my computer I can look at my phone and realise I'm supposed to be somewhere, but where? It doesn't syncronise with Gmail or Google Calendar, or anything other than Microsoft products. Its weekly calendar won't show events past 5pm. There's no radio. The software isn't even fully compatible with the phone, and leads to contacts' names being messed up in Outlook. It won't allow the installation of Java applications from computer. Everytime you turn it on it goes through a visual sequence that advertises Motorola, so I can remember how terrible this phone is. This phone is like a Mac, all design and no fuctionality.
how come i cant send multimdedia messages and pictures adn videos to my friend via me fone?
this phone looks great but i can only put one mp3 tune on it and to download a tone and change my ring tone i have to delete my previous one. I need a card slot!!!!!

well this phone is overall satisfactory. but i personally do not recommend anyone to buy this phone when you can get the v3i which has much better features.
well, i like it a lot. battery is holding it very good for 3 days allready (full level) and the phone has a very nice design! it can be better but if you have the canche to get a v3, just do it!
I think this phone is good only my browser wont connect any1 have any ideas
this fone is a piece 'o dung. lags during typing of messages, the memory capacity approaches zero, low battery life, camera sucks, video, even worse. luckily, i bought mine for only 20 dollars. and i've since thrown it away. am now goin fot SE W800i! nvr ever, ever never buy this phone. waste of money! unless, you can get one for 20 bucks! heh
