MOTO

 

Great phone, I have owned these before, I like the simplicity and custom-ability. Since I don't care for touch-screens, don't use Facebook, MSN, or check email from my cellphone, so these phones are perfect for my needs. If you purchase this phone and...

I like these phones, came with an old OS, but easy to flash. Unlocked ; Worked fine with my carrier. Cingular brand is lightly printed on battery cover, which is a slightly different shade of silver, but this does not bother me

As some others mentioned, the batteries these ship with do not seem to hold a charge well. Luckily for me, this is not my first V3 and I have a spare OEM battery I bought from an auction site long ago when I lost the original battery on my old V3 ;...

Silver Motorola RAZR V3

 

Silver RAZR purchased for myself. Phone came branded Cingular, but ATT sim was no problem. Its outdated by todays standards, but Ive always wanted one, and now I have it. Happy with the purchase, as well as with newegg. Shipping is never very quick...

Phone appears to be brand new ; Battery holds a charge fairly well (under mild use) ; Price was fair

Did not come with usb cable to connect phone to PC, not the end of the world, but was expecting one to be included with phone ; Battery cover color is a slightly different shade of silver compared to the rest of the phone body

Unlocked Moto V3 Razr

 

Old european stock, comes with european charger and US prong adapter. No regrets, though. Newegg shipping was very prompt.

Worked fine with my AT&T sim card out of the box after charging. No battery issues yet. Good voice and audio quality. Nice loud speaker, good for outdoors

Like some others, mine was branded T-mobile. Only issue is on power up I get a 453 Error Invalid Number text. I found the T-mobile embedded code sends a message on power up. Could fix it by re-flashing with AT&T code

No Broswer for ATT

 

Even if you have a T-Mobile account this phone should only be considered for short term replacement and not for long term use.

For the cost its a very good basic phone. If you have T-Mobile for your carrier you might be in luck

If your carrier is AT&T and you use the sim card from At&t, you are out of luck for internet service. There is no browser for e-mail service so forget it. As for sending and receiving any kind of messages that are common everyday use, keep dreaming...

It Just Works

 

According to PDA Giant (the supplier), this current lot of V3's that Newegg is selling is software branded for AT&T and cannot be changed. It is unlocked so it will work with multiple providers, but you will see AT&T logos and functionality. Check with...

Good phone for the T-Mobile basic voice service plan I have. Bought one last year that was branded T-Mobile, and it works great. I had one years ago that worked great too, so I replaced my T-Mobile Blackberry Pearl with it last year due to reliability...

Current lot that Newegg has is branded AT&T. This was a con for me since I have T-Mobile and didn't want to see the AT&T or Cingular menus

Battery Issue

 

These are what you would call "new old stock". They must have been sitting on a shelf in a warehouse somewhere, because Moto stopped making these years ago. The date on the battery was 2004. So I've learned that Li batteries age even when they are...

Of many cell phones I owned, I prefer to carry this one, because the slim form fits very easily in my pant pocket, and is a very solid performer all-around

Like others said, I also got one with a weak battery

Works with T-mobile SIM card

 

It is unlocked but T-mobile branded. This is not a big problem, as I am a T-mobile customer. I purchased this to replace an old Nokia phone. This is much better.

Brand new with original plastic stickers. It works with T-mobile SIM card. The battery charge up time is fairly fast. It comes with a mini USB cable. Clean, elegant design. No problem so far with the battery life

The battery cover is slightly darker than the rest of the phone and has the T-mobile logo. The SIM port does not work until the battery is fully charged ; it will keep saying "Insert SIM card" even though the card is there ; The USB port doubles as a...

good price, old battery

 

I've bought used cell phones on auction site, and always had problems with old batteries, plus the uncertainty of the condition of used phones. This is a better deal than buying a used phone.

Brand new in box with and original plastic wrap. A new phone for the price of a used Razr on auction site. This is the classic Razr, fashion craze of a few years back. Slim design and big screen are nice, although less featureful than the Moto e815 of...

Battery life seems short. The battery was new in it's original wrap, but date coded 2006. Researching the issue, I've learned that Li Ion batteries age, even when they are not in use. So a brand new battery that's been sitting on a shelf for 3 years is...

Works with ATT

 

Good purchase. I'm going to buy another for myself since the first one wen't to my wife.

Phone works with ATT simm card which wasn't apparent from other reviews. Phone works fine, however, out of the box you have to first fully charge it, otherwise it won't call out. I thought it was defective and called the support line which started an...

Branded with T-Mobile all over it but that's a very minor issue

It is what it is

 

If you are looking for all the bells and whistles go with a pack specific phone (my own fault wanted Gun Metal) . If newegg would let you select AT&T ot Tmoble would be 5 eggs.

It is a Razr. Great call quality. Looks great, I've had 3 of these and they just don't make quality phones like this today

Well I'm with AT&T and received a Tmoble. So really just have basic functions of the phone, don't want to brick the thing trying to update. I have a iphone (not really made for talking on) so really don't need Web, IM, ect. Knowing what these phones...
