Ahh this was my first cellphone, thing was pretty durable and dependable.
Had it for years until I sold it to a guy who needed it pretty badly.
Pretty basic but got the job done.
hlnjnm, 24 Jan 2013Where can I buy another V171? I live in England.Hi hlnjnm
If you're still interested in purchasing said mobile I shall shortly be listing such a mobile on eBay UK replete with box and manual and charger etc.
My nickname is my eBay member ID.
haha.. my first phone, got this back on 2005. i remember my friends fighting over to buy this from me. still in one piece right now, but need a new battery...
I'm looking for a ringtone for like 5 years now :P cause it reminds me of a great time at home.. do any of you have a list with all of the original ringtones? thanks! :)
I've had a V171 for 6 years now and it's worked without a hitch. It's a good basic phone and being a camshell protects the screen from damage and the buttons getting pressed by car keys etc while in my pocket.
this phone is almost identical to motorola v173 which you cant find on this site for no reason
This phone is simple to use and is affordable! It has the basics and what else do you need! NET10 really does provide the greatest PrePaid deals. This phone is perfect if you are looking at getting your first phone!
I have this phone with Net10. It's a good phone and since it's free(the phone is $29.99 and comes with 300 min.), you can't complain. I just need a basic phone so this phone fits the bill.
This was my first ever phone, it sucked no wonder motorola is bankrupt.
the screen light in this cell phone has gone off, anybody know how it be able to fix the light on the keyboard works, but not the one on the screen,
i really miss this mobile as it was a first mobile cheap and best but it was stolen...but i wish such type of mobile's in market
I like this phone. I have the v171 since july 2008 (in Argentina v172). it had the flex broken so I have to "bend" it to see the screen. then it fell from 5-6 meters high and broke the screen. it looked like there was a bat hanging from the screen. then I fixed it until it broke again and I had to buy another one. (I bought another v171). however i like it because it is a simple phone and its low price makes easy purchase. plus it's small and lightweight. I dont mind the small screen or the crapy ringtones. i just use it as a phone and text message
i hope my opinion was helpful to you

why make this phone? who would buy it? oh, well my parents got them and (glad I didnt get one) the only reason they got the was because they were cheap. my parents really are cheap too. They won't even let me get a phone. I told them at least get razors, they have more to them, but NO! I'm a sad person rite now.....
this phone, well, let's just say it's not the best phone I've ever seen. i mean, there is no camera, the screen is tiny, and you cant even get it in any other color than silver! the antenna sticking up makes it look out-of-style, i would much rather have any other phone in the world than this one. Or, i would rather not even have a phone at all!
I love this phone it's awesome, I have a SE K810i but I still perfer this phone.
hey, the screen light in this cell phone has gone off, anybody know how i might be able to fix it? the light on the keyboard works, but not the one on the screen, thank you!
Amber, 01 Sep 2007Oh my gosh, ok, i just got this phone a few days ago- everything seemed really cool at first, ... morehey turn off your phone and then remove the battery. wait a couple o secs replace the battery and then after a couple o mins...turn back on ur phone....see if that works..
