I have owned the V3i now for about 6 months, and is ok but for the dust that keeps gathering inside the screen. It has been sent off to be cleaned twice now, and is so dusty, it needs doing again. Others i know don't have this problem, so looks like i'm just unlucky.
I've been switching between Nokia and Motorola phones...and to summarize it, Nokia's phone is very easy and nice to use but in terms of design, Motorola beats Nokia hands down. Love the previous v60 flip phone from Motorola and now fell in love with this Razr v3i... the phone is not really that small but thankfully, it's slim. I have no problem pressing the keypad. It doesn't feel very solid but i guess that's because it's thin... Overall, the speaker and headset sound quality is pretty decent for me. Not many exciting features inside the phone except i just played around with the camera and video function. And tried playing mp3.
Overall, I'm attracted to this phone more on it's cool look rather than function/features.
Else, I don't find anything different between a 6030 Nokia vs v3i Motorola for a normal day to day usage. Unless you are planning to snap pictures or record videos...
OMG the fone is SOOO thin and gorgeous!
its quite big in terms of size, but it makes up for it in slimmness and sleekness, the phone is nice n shiny!
in terms of features a mobile phone IS a mobile phone if you want a laptop on a mobile BUY A LAPTOP! lol the main functions of a fone are to receive and call and message, anything more is a bonus, another thing why complain about the camera?, if you want a good quality camera BUY a digital camera, jeez people the features on todays fones are a BONUS! it is not a multifunction unit nor a replacement for every other digital item, BUT its just more of a convenience factor with inputs like the camera...so be gratefull you like in the 21st century! lol
to berand,,,its always been a question of mine in that they dont tell you at purchase that you have to have a comp to use any mp3 player & you have to rip all your songs to a suitable format.T o answer your you is something i cant do as i dont know any other way to get your tunes on except via bluetooth from another fone....
simon,,under the trade disciptions act the product should leave the shop in merchantable condition..also phones usually have a 14 day refund or exchange policy..the only place i had this done to me was argos but even still i said no and got a refund under the sale of goods act.You must provide a reciept and return the goods in as new condition as is possible.I wish id known were you got it from if your in u.k.
Bought a Motorola V3i and took it home. Did the charging the battery thing as instructed by the sales assistant. Whacked the SIM in and no signal. Called the service provider - all should be working fine...try again in the morning. Next morning, no signal still. Put SIM in different phone, worked fine. Put different SIM in V3i, still no signal. Took it back to the shop and it HAD TO GET SENT AWAY FOR AN 'EARLY LIFE REPLACEMENT'... they should have just given me a replacement on the spot, but NO it has to go away. Anyway, that's what happened with my V3i that I had for all of 24 hours.
well it is a great ,sexy phone& i believe
moto owner hav done a good job.but can anyone tel me how to download songs in

m plannin 2 buy da phone after loosing my n70....yea,....so if ul cud plzz temme if i shud or not?
i have a motorola v3i but when i am playing music on my mp3 player it is loud but on the head set/phone it is very soft . is this a problem or that hoe it is .
motorola claimed that it sold 50million of their razr model phones should be an eye opener to nokia that just because you have great features does not mean it will sell well if you lag in design. Look at LG's chocolate phone, just reading the specs tell you that this is just an ordinary phone and the design is its main or only selling point and it has been a huge succes. Motorola and other mobile expert are already predicting that unless nokia came out with new attractive phones, motorola be the market leader in 2-3 years time. Wake Up Nokia!
great phone. but i have no computer 2 download itunes how can i ad my downloaded mp3s to my play list ?
Dear moto v3i owners, I myself have a moto v3i. Yes its a very nice phone but most V3i come with a factory defect, specially those which have the software no ending with .35( to check your software got to your phone menu>settings>phone status>other information>S.W Version.) Does your v3i Mp3 player sound too low? Does it hang when your receive an incoming call? Then your software needs to be updated.I can help coz i updated mine and now My v3i is smoother,faster and your Mp3 player will be louder and never hang.
Its for V3x Users Only.. I will Give u info for c3 and v3i 2moro.. C ya Guys... PARADOX From Dhaka,Bangladesh.
Go motorola!!! Go nokia N-GaGe!! i wish that motorola has an NGAGE too...
well, i just bought my own unit recently and I can tell that I'm really enjoying what the phone has to offer. Aside from its sleek design and versatility, V3i will surely make your life more entertaining because of its multi media features. I was so happy that this phone managed to include a 1.23 mp snapper.Nw, you can take crystal clear pictures wherever you are. I love you MOTO
am not really amazed with its features coz am guessing my mom's n6600 is much better but it's the sleek design that rocks! very elegant.. i feel like walking uphigh like a ceo when i have it with me..
thank goodness i finally discovered how to use iTunes haha stupid girl.. my 256mb is more than enough for my pop hits to get carried along..
last thing is that i've been hearing a lot of good things about v3i. it's far much better that v3x. no wonder why.. fast talkers?? :)
yay!! finally, i've got diz D&G fone...*wink* itz cool & classy..but if u're kind of pipol lookin for better feat., u should get SE or Nokia fone...
Moto has been playing with the same old Razr design for so long. In its ad, Moto featured Razr V3x, Razr V3i, E1070 and Pebl.
All phones looks the same excetp the pebl.
i bought v3i 2 weeks ago, but 2 days after buying it, it automatically shutting off everytime i received a call. im also dissappointed on mp3 player, it opens very slow and the speaker sound (even the headset) is not nice unlike my other phone nokia 6230, the sound quality is much better. LOOKS ARE REALLY DECEIVING! don't waste your money with this phone! NOKIA is still the best, its also user friendly!
I think the only good thing about this phone is that it has expandable memory, but it is still the same old phone, there are so many better phones on the market!!!!!
well the phones great...its sleek but recently my friend bought a sony ericcson w700..amazing phone the head phones are mind blowing after hearing that when i plugged in my headphones and switched on itunes.."not that great"...was wondering if motorola could have more headphones with individual volume functions..or atleast have differrent volumes for phone / headphones..the output is too low
