Motorola MOTO VU204 (Verizon Wireless)


The Motorola VU204 is an easy-to-use cell phone with a simple design and good call quality. It offers a few extra features, as well.

The Motorola VU204 has a simple, attractive design, functional features, and good call quality

The Motorola VU204's battery cover is difficult tor remove and its displays are rather small

Motorola VU204 (Verizon Wireless)


Sometimes looks matter. And while the Motorola VU204 is a good, low-end voice phone for Verizon with useful extras like Bluetooth and a camera, its chubby, toylike design makes me hesitant about recommending it.

Very good call quality. Loud ringtones. Decent speakerphone

Screen feels a bit low-res. Design looks toylike

The Motorola VU204 is a very good voice phone, if you can get past its squishy, toylike design.

Motorola VU204 Review: Entry Level Minimalist Flip Phone

MOTO VU204 Profile


In selling the MOTO VU204 for Verizon Wireless, Motorola uses words like "ergonomically sleek," "soft-touch paint," "begs to be touched" and "draws just the right amount of attention" to say that this is your basic, blend-into-the-crowd kind of clamshell.

a real lemon


Cheaply made phone that won't last.

not much - fit the bill for a very basic flip phone with bluetooth and camera

Rubber tabs for charger and headset never stay shut. The charger one broke off within 2 months. After a year and a half, the plastic phone hinge broke, and now it swivels. Am in the middle of a contract and seriously inconvenienced

Had the phone going on 2 years.. still going strong!!


I have owned this phone for 2 years. Can't understand the battery life complaints, mine last 3-4 days on a full charge, and I still have the original battery. Call quality is great! Pretty durable as well, I do have the leather case and dropped it more...

Size, battery life, ease of use, looks good

Rubber covers for charger, headphones, flimsy and fall off after extended use. Back cover is a pain to remove but only had to remove it twice in 2 years

Worst cell phone ever


After using it for less than a year I opened it one day to answer a call and the phone snapped in half. Worst phone I've ever used. The second and last Motorola phone I ever buy.

Size & USB Charger

Cheap construction, poor sound quality, limited featues, incompatible with some bluetooth headsets

gets the job done for a free phone


Not sure why other folks had problems w. the back cover falling off or why they couldn't figure out how to silence the voice command prompts (no, it is virtually impossible to not hit that side button occasionally Voice...

small, simple, color screen, thinner than older flip phones

little rubber tabs covering headphone jack & power cord never stay in place, even with the leather case it couldn't withstand 14 mo of use (and by use I mean constant dropping) before the hinge broke

has to be the worst phone in the world


Dont buy this phone. As soon as my contract is up, this phone takes a dive in the nearest garbage bin

not much pro

Phone is a pain in the butt. Put it in your pocket and all of a sudden, the speach recognition feature is activated and wants to place a call. Covers for the power charger are difficult to open, then fall off
