I had the same problem. The phone was barely 2 months old and when I would switch it on it would re-start over and over again until the battery died. I have had it for about a year now and had to get it fixed 4 times under warranty. I bought it because I liked the design...but unfortunately have regretted purchasing it.
I totally love this phone but the battery life is what totally breaks my heart completely, if I could just find my way around this problem then I'd totally be in love with this phone.
This is by far the worst mobile phone I ever owned. About two weeks after I bought it, I could not turn it on. It would restart and restart and so on until there was no more energy in the battery. I used the warranty to get it repaired. It was ok for a few days until it started switching off on its own. And finally, some days later the upper keypad stopped responding, except for the red telephone button (the one that also switches on and off the device). And now it is impossible to connect it to a computer in order to backup my contacts etc because I cannot use the directional keys to select the proper usb connection. I own it for some months and I have only used it for just one month maybe. After this experience, I am not buying another Motorola phone for sure.

i had p990 before this phone... i must say motorola implemented Symbian better than Sony ericsson ... The phone design is awesome.. and performance is also good
Billistic, 13 Oct 2009I had this phone for about 2 months. Honestly... this phone is a piece of junk. Nothing worked... moreI had it, modded it and played with it for a while but found that the keys are REALLY hard to press and find, it's slow and volume is really low.
The Rokr Z6 was such a mean machine and then they release this? Disappointed and giving Moto one last chance if they release another awesome slider with 3G.
OK, so i've been using this phone for 5 whole months now, and i say, this is the BEST phone i ever had, there are no firmware problems, no lags, no nothing bad.
This phone has everything you'd want in a phone in this price range, it is just perfect, it makes a great impression, specially on ladies, Perfect just perfect.
Arshad, 18 Sep 2009i got that phone and i hate it ... not good ..please dont buy any more...looks like a banana, cant text on it either
