My first and last Motorola. As others report, lag, battery life too short, can't answer a call, can't hang up, it takes more than 2 minutes to load at openning, gps doesn't work well, not able to run a map app well, always bugs and delays. Please, stay FAR AWAY from this phone. Pay 100 or 150$ more and buy ANY OTHER smart phones. I bought mine on a 36 months plan and stick with it for another 2 years.
Im going to rape this phone as soon as ibuy something to replace it. WORST phone ever made. Constantly reboots for no reason. Takes an HOUR to switch screens, answer calls. Wont let me hang up a call unless i rip off the back and take out the battery!!!! Drops calls all the time. Puts calls on hold by itself! Texts by itself!!!! Its favorite msgs are mmmmmmmmmmmmmm and mlmlmlmlmlmlmlmlml. Calls people on my contact list. Takes 6 *%$*#*!!! days for it to turn on!!! Battery dies in an hour of use. Weighs 20 lbs. Piece of f_____ junk. I absolutely wanna DESTROY THIS THING.

It sucks so, but so badly i can't even describe. If you sum the time i lost trying to make/answer calls (because the processor is so slow it almost clocks backwards) you'd come to a value better read in weeks rather than in minutes. The screen just doesn't work, and frequently it rebooted in my pocket. If you drop it from 1" it will reboot, because the battery and its receptacle are poorly designed. The keyboard does fell great, but if the phone won't let you use it, what is that worth? After suffering time enough, i switched back to my nokia 2630 and - no kidding - found it to be WAY more responsive.
bottom line: if you see this device, run in the opposite direction. really, i can't truly express how frustrating it is to own and use it.
i downloaded operamini into these 4ne and it works,its far more better then google
I have had this phone for one year now and it's been great. It cost me $70 + tax to buy out right. It runs smoothly, though not as fast as some of the $500-600 models. Slide out key board is great for texting, it's descent for surfing, but the best is it's tethering capabilities. Works awesome as a wireless hotspot. All in all, it's an excellent entry level smartphone at an amazing price point.

This is the worst phone I ever have, to make it kind of usuable you should root it and uninstall the motorola stock applications and don't install anything more just use it has a feature phone. The battery life is really short, the screen responsiveness is a pain, the resolution is awful, some times you just can't answer a call because the processor is busy doing something else, maybe the only good point is the keyboard, but its the phone is too bulky, this really the last phone I buy from Motorola.

I plug the phone in 5 mins later it tells me its fully charged and I unplug it and less than 30 mins it starts flashing red. I can't leave my home without a charger for fear I will be stranded with no cell phone.
This is a great phone!!!! its one of my fav so far, im soo glad i bought it

This is the worst phone to EVER HIT THE MARKET! Motorola should send out a mass apology to all those who purhcased this phone! The touch screen lags and freezes, the battery dies fast, the data is so slow and its so frustratiing to even turn it on. I bet that while making this phone they blind folded everyone just to see what would happen! If you are looking into buying this phone... DONT! If you already have this phone and are having problems... just throw it away and buy another phone! Good Luck to all who have this phone!!! west west ya'll
Never ever buy this phone. This is a piece of junk.
spend 100 dollar more, buy better model.
I hate this phone it glitches and lags all the time it only works for the first few months. Do yourself a favor and save some money....dont get the phone!!!

I use Mobile Data On/Off Toggle by Free Wing free from Android Market to turn off data (there are others but this works for me). When I want to use the net again I just tap this widget.
So seriously, this is crazy... I just charged my phone less than 30 mins ago, and now it only has 5% life remaining. How do I deal with this? Should I buy a new battery?
PLEASE!! If you want a good phone DO NOT BUY THIS!! It's awful!! The battery life is bad, the resolution is worse and it don't run even angry birds properly. So if you're looking for a good phone don't buy this, if you are looking for a waste of money and timer what are you waiting for? It has a 580 mHz computer... And it's not good enough for the price, because here in Mexico you can buy a Sony Ericsson x8 or a Samsung Galaxy Gio for exactly the same price, and those are WAY BETTER than this piece of trash, I am so sad because I didn't pick the Galaxy Gio when I had a chance TT^TT
This phone has a lot of features for the price. But the biggest downfalls, by far, are: 1) battery life: very bad in this regard. 2) LAG: Be prepared to wait 30 seconds for some apps to open. It's the built in junk that restarts every few minutes and no task killer can prevent this. Wish they had a fix for that, because I love the phone's features otherwise.

So I went to restore it with my vendor, and now the battery works until 36 hours using wifi along 18 hours.
This phone does a lot for being an entry level smartphone. How many inexpensive Android phones can you find with a slide out keyboard. There may be a few problems from time to time but great experience overall. If you want to have long battery life then turn off data. I use Mobile Data On/Off Toggle by Free Wing free from Android Market. What a difference! I got this phone free so no complaints.
