Motorola RAZR V3r review

7.4/10 AVG.
RATING



7.4/10
Informr score
The Motorola RAZR V3r currently has an Informr score of 7.4 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 17 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The RAZR V3r is basically the same phone as the RAZR V3i, with a couple exceptions. The V3r's music player does not use Apple's iTunes software (Motorola Music Player instead) and the V3r is fire red, not silver like the V3i.

An iTunes-free RAZR (identical twin to this phone) is also available for T-Mobile and Rogers, it's called the Motorola RAZR V3t.

RAZR V3r

I bought a RAZR v3r on E-BAY ! At first it worked GREAT ! After awhile it just stopped working ! After replacing it , I found out that my original one was STILL under warranty !

I bought a RAZR v3r on E-BAY ! At first it worked GREAT ! After awhile it just stopped working ! After replacing it , I found out that my original one was STILL under warranty ! It took awhile to get mine back . One year later , it's STILL working perfectly . And I have a new one as a back-up ! A couple thoughts : 1) ALWAYS use a case (cover) . It does a great job protecting your RAZR . 2) I love the memory card slot , but to use a 2GB , you must format on your computer first , or the RAZR may not recognize your card ! I have hundreds of songs & photos in this little chip ! I can use an adapter to listen to music through headphones or amplified speakers . I can even feed my music into an FM transmitter & play my music through my truck stereo . Sounds good , too !( The adapter sells on E-BAY for about $10 shipped I only wish that this phone was AD2P capable so I could hear music through Bluetooth devices ! --LJK-- Less

V3R a big improvement on V3i

I have had several RAZRs, including the original V3, V3i and V3r. I had the V3 first and liked it fine, except the camera has pretty low resolution (640x480). So after about a year I bought a V3i, which has a higher resolution camera, plus MP3 player. I looked carefully on Ebay for one which had the real iTunes interface -- what a big mistake! The only way to use iTunes on the phone is to give your whole music collection over to Apple iTunes control on your computer. And the iTunes software is a total dog, with background processes gobbling up your CPU etc etc. After a few weeks tearing out my hair, I uninstalled the whole mess, and simply copied the MPS files directly onto the V3i (where you can play them one by one as 'sound' files without using the iTunes function). I eventually lost my V3i, and bought the non-iTunes version, which is the V3r. What a great improvement! Rather than insist on taking over your life, the V3r MP3 interface just lets you copy the mp3 files onto the phone, after which the Motorola Digital Music Interface plays them for you (just like the iTunes player, only ten times simpler). The RAZRs I have had have been great. Very reliable, and really easy to slip into your pocket. One word of warning though, apparently some fake ones have started to show up on the market. I bought a V3r on Ebay for a friend overseas, and although it worked fine on my AT&T sim card (I checked before sending it), it wouldn't work overseas (and it was supposedly unlocked). So my recommendation is to buy a branded one (e.g. AT&T) and then unlock it if you want to use it with a different provider. Less

Buyer Beware!

from eBay
Make sure you are getting the United States friendly V3R which comes in red. I purchased a black version which is actually a V3ROHS and is a generic version, was not specified in the description.

I love this phone EXCEPT....

I'm on my 3rd one in several months. The 1st two eventually started to shut themselves off. If I had to relie on this phone for work I wouldn't be able to use it. I hope #3 here is the charm it should be.

Motorola MotoRazr V3r

from eBay
I have had this phone for a little while now..I do like it alot but there are a few thing about it that are kinda a pain. I feel as though the key pad tones are not loud enough. Some of the features are hard to find. And it doesnt take the best pictures. This phone is not the worst or the greatest.
