No, you can't get the V80 thru Cingular.
You can buy one unlocked or have it unlocked and use it on either Cingular or T-mobile in the USA.
DO NOT buy phones thru myworldphone.com, the company (or shady guys out of a room/office in NYC) absolutely suck. They sell refurbished phones and you can only return them (if they deem necessary) w/in 5 days.
so can you get this phone through cingular's service?
This Cellphone is perfect ! no probs with thus far .....frose a few times....who cares though...camera sucks.....but who cares...i download my friends pics direct from my comp and attach to their numbers...so when they call me these amazing quality pics come up...instead of the crappy ones u take with the camera.....the lights around the outside of the phone after 5 months have become pretty lame....but they're ok....Bluetooth is a huge factor....MP3 cool also....i live in Canada and i've had absolutely no problems here with reception in fact it's been better in some respects....it's also been great when i've been to New York.....The only reason i would even look at the V3 RAZR is for the size....otherwise it's the same operating system.....my next phone needs video.....for now i'm hangin' on to this phone.....i'm basically the only guy that has one !
I love the design but I am having problems with it. First the green navigation buttion came off and I had to send it for repair. Then, when closed and I receive a text messsage, and the navigation button is accidently pressed (which happens in a handbag for example) it picks up Quick Note text messages and sends one after another to the number where I had just received a text message from. This should never happen because the phone is closed! I have been charged for many extra text messages and the phone is currently in the repair center for the third time because they cannot fix the fault! The camera has also been faulty and needed to be repaired. When everything is working then it is a great phone, stylish and easy to use.
I had my V80 for 3 weeks and it froze on me.
Wouldn't let me into the phone at all. Then a friend fixed it.
Then 2 weeks later the camera says "busy. try again" So the camera will turn on sometimes, but is all green and pixilated. So I sent it to Motorola for repairs. Waiting to see if they fix it.
The phone is unlocked and I use it on the Cingular network in the DC area.
Let me know if anyone has questions or the same problems with their phone.
This phone is great.i've had it for two months and it works perfect no problems. the joystick is very strong dont believe the other opinions and the glass is the strongest i have seen on a phone. my phone has fallen at least 12 times and glass hasn't even cracked. the only problem i have is with the bluetooth headset i can't get it to work. other than that the phone is great. i highly recommend.
This phone is absolutley amazing. I have never had a Motorola before an never used to like them...until this BEAUTY! I love the uniqe design and im the envy of all my Mates. Please, if you have the money, purchase this phone. The only single thing i am disapointed with is that it isnt able to take videos. However, the camera quality is great and the person who thought of the landscape camera mode is a genius! Ok, the camera could have been more well place, but it is useable once you get used to it. I love the event lights. The menu is a bit difficult to handle..ive had this phone for nearly a week and have only just found out how to change the message tones...and that was only because i asked a mate for help. The picture quality is good and has a good colourful screen. Bluetooth is a handy feature too. Overall this is a great phone. If you have the money, Buy it please, you wont regret it.
i had this phone for a couple of weeks until i dropped it on a tile floor and the screen (not the glass) cracked. Instead of the usual screen there was a black crack and around it was surrounding faded-whitish screen. The guy i got it from owned one himself and his green little joystick broke off. i used the joystick lightly, trying not to yank it off. the wallpaper can change when you have your phone open and closed but once it froze. the wallpaper stayed the same, i couldn't turn it off, i couldn't press any key....so i basically had to take the phone apart and replace the battery. you have to open the phone to answer it, unlike some sliding phones. No vibrate and ringtone at the same time...but you can take pictures in a landscape position and there are different patterned lights surrounding the screen when someone calls or when you have a rhythm nearby. I got it for free so you shouldn't pay too much for this phone.
I am a student, students work vary rough with phones. I have my V80 for quite a while now, and to date it has been only a pleasure. I think if you handle it well, it will keep on working for you. I fancy the mp3 ringtones, and the voice dial is the best AI I've ever seen on a phone. You wont be disappointed.
This phone is amazing!!!
I got this phone a month ago, and i don't know what these people are sayin. The joystick does not feel at all flimsy, the flip movement is smooth and clean, i don't know if i got a recently upgraded version of the phone or something but mine is working perfectly, there are no freezes or anything. IGNORE WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING AND BUY THIS PHONE!!!
This is a good phone, nice size screen. But it does break easy the little neck holding the screen to the body is not that strong. Any questions about phone e-mail me.
I just bought this phone the other day and the green joy stick broke on me!!! And I only had it for a day!!! I RECOMMEND YOU TO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!

i am just about ready 2 purchase this phone. a lot of people are doubting the fone bcuz ppl say that the joystck falls off. but if you really think about it, if the fone is that good u wouldnt feel the need 2 post anything about it, but if its a bad fone, u feel the need 2 tell the world. i read alot of bad reviews on the fone, but also good reviews ,so ill just hope that the good overpowers the bad!!!! but should i really buy it?
i have this phone and am sick of how hsrd it is to use so want to give it away...but...i have some text mesages tha ti would rather not lose. does anyone have any idea how i can transfer them to my sim card's memory? PLS HELP!
Amazing phone...can't fault it. If your looking for a phone with eveything, and style ( very rare combo!) go for this one...and its small!!! you'll stop traffic with this phone
I'm a technical employer at a mobilephone service station in Holland. I jus't want to say; the joystick of this phone can't be fallen of with normal use, you had to break it with force. So fell of joysticks are real fables just put here by Moto haters. Only little negative thing about the v80 is his battery case and nothing else.
Rubber cover surrounding the joystick? what for rubber cover? have thiz phone a loooooong time and never seen a rubber surrounding at the joystick. FABLE!! and i don't believe you got a v80, you should have know there is no rubber surrounding!
