Text messages sometimes refuse to send. Overall: I miss my nokia with the alarm clock that rings even when the phone is off. Huge regret getting this phone. What I like best is the Ringtone ID's. I know who is calling by the ringtone the phone plays. Less

Don't Buy This Phone

I started my Verizon account with 4 razors. All had the same problems and none were recalled. You can count on the front screen glass breaking.

I started my Verizon account with 4 razors. All had the same problems and none were recalled. You can count on the front screen glass breaking. The our phones were not durable and all have been replaced. BAD PHONE CHOICE. I always liked Motorola until now. I will never buy a Motorola product again. AND... Verizon was no help. After a month the phone broke and I had to file an insurance claim because it was not honored by warranty because they use the date of your first phone. Buyers Beware. Ask lots of questions. Less

...even if they pay me... for the simple fact that I can't download my photos from this phone (V3m) using my USB cable or Bluetooth without addl software I have to pay for! The manufacturer must be really hurting for money to be milking its unsuspecting victims (like myself) this way. May they go out of business. Addendum: It's not Verizon; it's not Sprint (my carrier, the worst); it's Motorola who came up with such an evil design. Less

No Good!

from Amazon
My battery can't hold a charge and my phone freezes up at least once a day and I have to either shut it off or disconnect the battery. It's no good and you should purchase something else.

Okay, there are a lot of annoying things about this phone, but the good thing is that if you are computer savvy you can easily hack it. Google hack razr v3m and you will see many good guides. For instance, i learned how to replace the mp3 that plays the ANNOYING power up/down verizon jingle with a BLANK MP3. That means, no interruptions when shutting of my phone (saves a lot of embarrasing moments at lectures or meetings). Also, DONT PAY TO DOWNLOAD RINGTONES. The simplist thing to do is replace an existing one you hate with one you want. Same is to be said for downloading music. Why pay twice to listen to music?! If you have a few hours you can figure out how to hack it. ps. do love the thin design. would have given it a 5 star but the phone does take a lot of time to hack and fix all the verizon junk. Less

i miss my phone!!

from Amazon
i had this phone until about 4 days ago when i lost it :( i seriously dropped it about 8 times while i had it (like all-out, battery-falling-out drop), and it was fine each time. it always got good reception--way better than previous phones i had. it's also a very convenient size and can fit easily into small purses. i miss my phone.

Let me first by saying I didn't know that I wouldn't be able to download songs to my phone or transfer the files from computer to device and device to computer. I bought both the Motorola phone tools, data cable and phone only to find out that I could not do it. I also bought both my husband and I's phone's with a mini sd card to expand the memory so that we could use it as an mp3 player as they were originally portrayed on tv commercials. I switched to Verizon because a friend of mine said they had great signal and phones. Phones yes, signal, it's so so. I do love the phone though, it's slim (fits in my pocket), has a camera, plays songs and I like the features. I also was upset that Verizon blocks you from being able to transfer your own files, so I finally seem edited (which is hacked) the phone. It's actually pretty easy, and now we are able to transfer files between phone and pc, and we can see the main screen from the outside of the lcd. The speakerphone is a little low if you ask me, I wish it were louder and the menu's on the phone are a little different then most. I wish these were easier to use and you were able to edit more of the phone. Motorola made a great phone, but Verizon kind of ruined it. The camera takes okay pictures, but they seem kind of blued as there isn't a flash if it's in low light. Good if it's outside, but not bad for a 1.3 megapixal. The camera is neat I think because I can take a few movies of the girls (I have two kids) and then transfer them to my computer for safe keeping. If you have the minisd card it's 5 minutes for a video...if not it's only 15 seconds (which is REALLY low). We also purchased the stereo headset where you can listen to music and answer the phone while doing it, it's something I recommend if you want to listen to music on your phone. It's not a bad player, but you can't do MP3's with verizon, they need to be converted to WMA files first and then transferred to be able to play them on the phone, which they are much bigger then MP3's. Overall, for the phone I give it five stars, but because it's with Verizon I only give it four. Less

Not Worth It

Although this phone is nice and small I regret ever switching to it. Verizon puts the worst operating systems on their phones. I like to leave my phone on vibrate and keep it in my pocket. But this phone never stops vibrating. When a scroll down a menu, or when a miss a call or when the battery is...More
Although this phone is nice and small I regret ever switching to it. Verizon puts the worst operating systems on their phones. I like to leave my phone on vibrate and keep it in my pocket. But this phone never stops vibrating. When a scroll down a menu, or when a miss a call or when the battery is low it just vibrates over and over. Its driving me mad! Less
