Brad, the latest silver v3 has video as well as the black v3, i should know, ive had both, see below...
Bought a silver one, O2 pay and go from the Link just before xmas, brought it home and tried to take a photo (with the flip down), in a dim lit room, and it took 2-3 seconds for the phone to save the pic, there is a delay so you have to keep the phone in the same position for about 3 secs after the photo is taken. Then all of a sudden, the wee screen says "photo capture failed" i then open the flip and the screen is all coloured fuzzy lines for about 1 sec. Brought it back to the link and said that it was faulty, they then give me another new silver v3, o2 pay and go, same thing happened with its camera, so brought it back to the link again and got a refund. Thinking that the link had a faulty batch of v3s, i went to phones 4 u and bought a black v3 o2 pay and go, brought it home, the same thing again with the camera. Im not going to bring it back as im convinced all v3 o2 pay and go phones really have either a faulty camera or a sensitive camera, thats sensitive to dim conditions. Anyone else have this problem? Apart from the camera issues, the phone is fantastic, best phone i ever bought.
I have ordered this phone in silver over the internet through a catalog that i subscribe to, so i have to pay weekly for it. The total price will be £114.99. Is this expensive for a phone? I don't want to waste all my money if it is rubbish as people are saying it is.
I just bought this phone before christmas and I must say, it is the coolest phone that I have ever had. Design is just awesome, and it's simple works and is easy to use. Only minus is that there are couple lack, like mp3 player and better camera, but those are in new model v3i, so that has to be very good phone too.
Only the black V3 has the capability to record video. The newer black v3's have the feature as soon as you buy it, if you have an older black V3, like when they first came out, you just need to get your phone flashed and it will work. But, for the people who have the silver V3, your not missing much, as you can only record like 8 second clips with the black one.
brought the new hot pink razr for my self for christmas paid a huge amount of money for it, thought it was just fab until i was thrown into a pool new years eve with my phone in pocket. very shattered

Well I bought the phone, LOVE it except I dont have Video cam like my brothers BLACk V3. It shows Video on my phone and Video Cam on his. It allows him to record videos but mine does not. Whats wrong with mine>>>??? How can I fix it??
I just purchased this motorola yesterday. During my first two phone calls the sound is cutting out, from normal to faint, during the conversation. The setting is all the way up on 7 loud. I also hear the buzzing sound. Then I read this problem all over the internet. I hear motorola isn't doing anything about the defect. I'm really bummed, it's a cool looking phone...taking it back!
I got my RazrV3 for my birthday. I love the phone, but I don't like the fact that dust began to accumulate underneath the screen display. I have the phone for 1 month now and the dust, such as fabric dust, underneath the screen display is becoming very noticeble and annoying. I could see them the screen light it off. Do you have the same problem as me? Or is this problem unique to me becaue the screen display is not sealed tight enough to prevent dust from entering it?
TEXT MESSAGING PROBLEM
I have a V3, and I have been very happy with it up until about 2 weeks ago, when I realised that I couldn't send and receive text messages. Although the phone says the message was sent, the receiver never gets the text, and when people send me a text message I don't receive it. I was told I needed a new sim card as mine was 5 years, old. Have had 2 sim cards in the last week, and STILL have problems with text messaging so have had to go back to using my V300 until I call t-mobile or Motorola this week and find out what the problem could be. Would like to hear from anyone having the same problem.
This phone may be like half a centimetre thick but it is huge in width and height cant get it in the fattest of pockets. and why dont the screen show up even wen its opened for like ten seconds
juz bought it yesterday,basically a good hp,no special functions but nonetheless the looks is fantastic.
my motorola V3 does not work .. the keyboard lights on & off alternatively .. BUT I do not know what is the problem !!
It does not work :'(
I don't know why u seem to be having problem with the menu or item location, probably u are used to much of nokia, I used to have that problem but after some time i got the hang of it (20 mins) my V3 is my first Motorola product (2 months old)and i find the menu and navigation perfectly placed but i feel the motorola people needs to update the the user manual, the phone sounds are very audible, maybe is because my came sim free but overall (perfomance, Yr released, price)i give the phone a 100 gun salutes
although i will change it next year to something better than W900i
T-Mobile near me didn't have the V3i version so I got this for now. Bought it today even after all reviews. Most of it is true and others seem to be wrong. A positive is that mine got 7mb like another poster said before. I tested the sound clarity by calling my brother who was in the same room but it was all broken sound. Needs further testing. The menu systems is a hit and miss for me (don't understand why some options are poory located). Even though I adjusted the sound level to high the voices seem inaudible for my standards (perhaps im going deaf?), but using the headset is better for me. This phone is all about the looks. Not sure if its worth the purchased price...
The Motorola V3 is the best mobile phone! Your design is exclusive and perfect...
I have just purchased a RAZR V3 from www.tescomobile.com and mine has 7.12MB of memory and a Video Recorder, so i this information is slightly incorrect i do believe that the new V3's do capture video like mine and like mine hav bigger memory.
