this fone is the coolest ever.it saved my life when i was drunk and had a hang over. i couldn't hold and barf so i was able to rest it on the sink.hmm, i love this fone,it's my life saver.
I've used my V180 for 8 months then the display started showing funny "inverted" and "double sized" charaters. T-mobile then replace a new one for free and I'm still using it, now problem since then. Of course if you put the phone in your pocket or purse (which has lot of dust), the dust can get into the window easily. Simply open the cover and clean it. The bactary life was very good, under normal daily usage, last over 3, 4 days.
Just a note for all. I've had mine for nearly a year and it still works as well as the day I bought it. Treat the phone well and it will last. I've used it here (u.s.) and also in Britain. If you take as good of care of it as you do your ipod, it will last you just as long.
Incredible battery duration. Specs say 216h, but once tuned (with usage) it can stand up to 280h in wait mode (even talking every so and so up to 1 h in total, so maybe it can last up to 300h).
My V180 is six months old. Crap (mold?) started growing on the inside the window display (there's even a hair in there). It's never gotten wet, dropped, or mistreated.
The window is unuseable now and this problem is not covered under warranty.
No more Motorola anything for me.
This has been one of the cheapest phone i've bought and has worked the best. Great reception exeptional battery life and with the usb connectivity, i have my favorite java applet running. Great phone allround
This phone has very nice features and a very nice design. However, its performance is terrible. I've had 3 of the model and finally demanded an upgrade which works better but I'll admit that I do miss many of the features of the phone such as multiple alarms, a sleep mode, and personalized ringtones. I DO NOT MISS dropped calls, the phone freezing so that I had to take the battery out to end a call and also the constant static in the background. All 3 phones of this model had a problem with my 5 button sticking. The sound was also the best on speakerphone... not so great for privacy.
for all who have problems connecting the phone to a PC !!!
download motorola mobile phone tools and the v180 usb driver from the net. i found them free !!! instal both of them and.. TADA it works! now you can transfer pictures, mp3's, even java games... the only inconvinience is the small 2 mb memory :((...
Does anyone know where I can get the driver for this phone? I have a USB cable to hook into my computer, but I don't know where to download the driver to make everything work properly. IF you know something that I don't, please email me. I would highly appreciate it.

Does anyone know how to put pictures/ringtones on this phone from a computer?? I have a usb cable that fits, (amazing!) but i'm a bit unclear as how to send the files to the phone. I am trying midi files, I dont know if they will work on the phone. Help would be greatly appreciated. Like, really REALLY appreciated.
i just got this phone and it looks cool with the class 10 gprs and all the features,mpeg4,mp3 ringtones and all those stuffs.
is this phone exist at the philippines?? coz i just got one from my friend..
Let me be VERY clear about this. When you first get the Motorola V180, you think it is great. However, within 4-6 months of normal use, something will happen to cause the phone to start having SERIOUS problems. The display will not come on. The phone will freeze. You will not be able to answer calls. I have gone through 2 of these phones in 13 months. The reception is not great, and its reliability is POOR. Stay away from this phone at all costs.
well those that tell bad things about this cell i just guess they are unlucky, sorry but well is true i had this cellphone for almost a year and i havn't had a single problem,the reception is very good and clear and has many cool tones, wallpapers and games, so far is the best one I ever had
At first when i bought this phone i thought it was the cutest thing but its not what i expected, it keeps going blank like whenever it feels like
i bougth my V180 phone last year,and i'm so happy, every time i try something new,for example this weak i bought the usb drivers and i listen music from the computer to phone,and if you don't know ,he has 40 bass.
This phone has a very sleek design and it looks very cute, but it's not reliable at all. I was thinking on buying it, because I was looking for a nice phone without camera.A friend of mine had it and it didn't last not even a month. The face plate was all scratched and both screens looked like a blurr of colors. She couldn't know who was calling or see anything on the screens. She could barely dial the phone number and call, without knowing if she was typing the correct number. And all because she let it fall from her night stand. I still liked the phone pretty much. And I thought I should get some opinions in the internet. I did and most of them were negative and some were positive. I still thought that I liked it and when I was in the dealer, I asked an employee about the phone. She didn't want to trash the phone. She just said it was fragile. And so I was convinced. I bought a Motorola v172 and it's pretty good too. I love it!!!!!
People plz don't buy this phone!!!! It's a waste of money. It'll be a miracle if it lasts more than a month.
