I have this phone since May 2007. At first, I was very pleased. Good battery, radio, stylish. Quite customizable (shortcuts and stuff).
After a few months, flip mechanism became a bit shaky. Not much, and condition has not worsened since.
However, this phone can sometimes miss an alarm (phone does not ring at the set time). Alarm text can have only 2 lines of text (approx. 40 chars), and max 5 alarms. This is irritating as I use this a lot as a reminders for things to do, for example: @3:15pm do the laundry.
Saving phone number from recently called list is painful (you have to enter name, you cannot chose from existing contacts).
In the last few months, phone has started behaving unreliable in regard to receiving phone calls. That is, people cannot reach me sometimes (even though my phone is turned on), they get "subscriber unavailable". Restarting the phone "unlocks" it. Might be due to new operator. Anyway, I plan to change this phone soon.

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2008How can i connect to PC. or i want to send business card to another phone?Hi.... You cannot connect your w220 with pc becoz it dosen't have an option and as far as business card is concerned u could send it via txt message.
It's almost been 2 yrs since i bought d fone, d experience has ben really good( I mean wat else culd u ask from such a simple fone??)
No prblms were there untill now....Now the FM reception do not work......every time i tune in to FM radio there is just no reception, although a harsh shrill noise can be heard......
There is no problem with the head set,(since many of u might point out !) the headset is just fine as calls heard via it are clean and clear......So just one problem nd dat too after 2 yrs of buying, quite genuine !

If yes then you have to swi... moreyes it is having the delivery reports option.
GO to messgaes center>click options>message setup>text messages>then check the delivery path.
Can anyone tell me that Motorola W220 has delivery report or not?
If yes then you have to switch it on for every message or it is like Nokia or Sony ericsson handsets?
It's a gr8 phone really.I have been using it for almost 2 years, i have not faced a single problem with it.The voice sound is good infact better then other set's that i have used.Radio works perfect and good sound also.Stylish amongst the flip phones.I have the one with black couler and ppl really ask about it when ever i am talking infront of sombody, but ofcourse they dont show any interest when they found about the specification's :).... BUT still it's a gr8 phone really......

I have a Moto W377 and have been trying to get the "Tile" ringtone to it from a W220, had no luck. I Googled up "the curve" for you and looked for a while but nothing. The only way is possibly buy the Motorola W220 phone?
noor jamal, 21 Feb 2006this is a joke of a cell phone right and i am already laughing my A$$ OFFFFF HAHAHAHAHA.Motoro... moreI know it was 2 years ago, but what a comment! My cousin owns this phone and he is not a cheapo, a weirdo or a "selfish businessman". I love the phone myself, nice and easy to use. Anyway, do they call phones a digital camera? Or maybe an MP3 player? Or what about a computer with net connection? NO! They call them phones, beacuse that's what they are! I have a perfectly fine iPod (which no mobile but the iPhone could ever match), an 8 Mega Pixel digital camera WITH video recording capabilities and a laptop with wireless net connection. So why would I want a phone with all that? I'd just be buying the same thing twice!
