THE PHONE . . . its 128x128 medium display looks great and is clear, though if you want a higher resolution, there are phones available with 128x160 or better. Especially if you are a multimedia head. For me, it’s perfect. There are two hot pre-programmed buttons on the outside, including the dedicated camera shutter button. You can adjust the volume of the earpiece on the outside of the phone with the up and down arrow keys, right above the camera hot button.
COSMETIC DETAILS . . . mostly plastic parts, but sturdy for the most part. Yes, it creaks when you open it, but so does my car door, but the vehicle’s performance is not hindered (lol). It still works. I’m not concerned about a cosmetic issue that doesn’t effect the usability of my phone. I haven’t or have any intentions of abusing my phone, so I couldn’t tell you about how it handles scratches. I keep mine in a protective slip case with a belt clip. So far, no scratches. If you don’t want your phone scratched, you just have to protect it and be careful. If something does happen, there are products available to repair any cosmetic issues.
OS . . . I like the icons, the organization, and animations of the system. You also have the option to change your menu, hide your icons, and much more. It’s totally customizable.
AUDIO . . . I can feel the vibration through my beltclip. I had the radio in my Cadillac turned up (as usual) and did not hear my ringer and jumped the first time I felt it vibrate. So, it’s powerful. If it’s in your pocket, you’ll definitely know if someone is trying to get your attention. Especially if you’re at the clubs and need to find one of your friends. Gotta love text messaging. The ringer is loud enough. I can understand and bounce to the beat of my music tones whenever someone calls. There is obviously a level at which you may not hear it. That’s just how it is. Certain sound effects and music tones will be louder than others. Not all audio files are sampled at the same rate, which can also make a difference. If you get crappy, cheap audio tones (like from most free sites) you don’t have to question why you can’t hear them.
FEATURES . . . absolutely feature rich. You can do just about anything with this phone. You can take pictures, download all types of multimedia, surf the web, send multimedia or simple text messages, set multiple alarms, add dates to your calendar (which has many options in itself), and so much more!
CONS . . . if you like the phone, but wanted to add space to hold your ringtones and pictures, that would be a major problem. You can’t expand the space, so you would have to constantly transfer your images to your computer to free up space for future ringtones and/or pictures. You can have a small library of ringtones and other audio. The space is also shared with any messages you choose to save and for anything you do on the web. So, you’ll need to clean out your cache and history from time to time, if you use the web on your phone often. With all these features, 1.8 MB of space just isn’t quite enough. If you want space, get a phone with bluetooth technology. They have phones with space starting at 5MB on up to 64MB and larger.
ISSUES WITH MOST CELLULAR PHONES
On some phones, screens are supposed to go “black” or simply shut off the backlit display after the set delay. If you do not want the screen to go “black” you can turn the delay off, but this will run the battery down as it will not shut off when the phone is closed (not with my test, anyway) and the option effects the outside display too. This will absolutely shorten the life of the battery. If you are constantly doing something on the phone, it should not turn “black”. If you’re talking on the phone, there really isn’t a good reason to have the backlit display on in the first place after you’ve placed your call. A suggestion is to buy a premium, higher capacity LI-ION battery to support this feature. // if you have further problems with your phone, please send me an e-mail. I will be glad to help you. //If you just bought your phone and have been trying to send text messages or get online, it will be between 3 and 5 full days before all of your features will be activated. When you get a voicemail, that is when all your features are available. You can then setup your voicemail and surf the web as you please. None of my calls have ever dropped, I don't sound like I'm in a well, I have 5 bars 94% of the time, and my camera never froze on me while taking a series of pictures. Thanks!

someone was helpful when i asked about the charging question and this is what they said:
its normal. if your profile had have stayed on either 'vibrate and ring' or 'vibrate', it would damage your charger. if you change your profile to either 'soft' or 'silent', you will notice that it doesn't switch to 'loud'.
every time i charge my phone, the ring style switches to "loud". how do i switch this off? i couldnt find it in the settings and its not in the manual as well.

This phone sucks. I have had 3 Nokia's over the past five years and they all worked flawlessly. I bought this phone in October and in December the screen cracked and it took Motorola a month to send a replacement. Then in March I sent it back due to a creak from the hing. Now it's May and it won't power on. So that makes 3 replacements in 7 months. Steer clear from this piece of sh*t.
My girlfrinend has this phone and it is a piece of junk it is the second one that she has had. The first one kept dropping the calls and turning off and making a loud static noise. and the second one of that same kind did pretty much the same thing. I wouldnt recomend that anyone get this phone.
is there anyone who knows how to unlock the motorola V220 phone? coz' I typed the wrong SUBSIDY PASSWORD.... by the way what's the SUBSIDY PASSWORD in english?
i got this phone for my birthday and i week after i got it the reception went on it do you if it can get videos on it i can not get ringtones are anything on my phone i think that this phone is cheap this is my 2 one and my last one i was ok liked days after my brithday butt now it is not

!Do not get this phone! My third phone is in the mail via the exchange program from Cingular. The first time the main screen went blank. This time the ear piece stopped working. I have not dropped either phone. I also know of three other people who are on their second phone. BTW: if you have to get an exchange through Cingular, your warranty does not start over. After a year from reciept of your original phone you are out of warranty!
can anyone please send me a picture taken with this phone?
my address is email@example.com
I've had this phone for about 6 months now. It has worked great until a few weeks ago. I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden I can't send anything outgoing. I can't call people, or send text messages. When i dial a number and press send, the phone just goes back to the main screen. The weird thing is, I can recieve calls perfectly.
I'e had a problem just like yours. The only solution is to take your phone back to your dealer and ask them to reinstal the software. Unless you are able to do that yourself :)
I got a motorola V220. It worked just fine a couple of days after unlocking. But after that whenever i tried to go into the personalize option, the screen went black. The other options are working fine. Can any1 help?
