Motorola Entice W766 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Motorola Entice W766 is the latest Motorola flip phone to join the Verizon Wireless family, and it is almost the same as the Motorola Rapture VU30, which was released late last year. It's not as sleek and shiny as the Rapture, but the Entice does...

The Motorola Entice is a lightweight clamshell phone with a decent feature set and great call quality

We're not crazy about the touch-sensitive music player controls, and the streaming video quality could be improved

The Motorola Entice makes for a decent midrange multimedia phone, especially if you care about call quality.

Motorola Entice W766 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Motorola Entice W766 is a decent phone caught between a rock and a hard place. For some reason, Verizon is now requiring $9.99/month data plans for even relatively low-key phones like this, which will inevitably drive consumers either towards...

Attractive. Comfy keypad. Excellent voice quality. Solid battery life

Horrible camera. Annoying headphone jack. Required $10/month data plan kills value

The Motorola Entice W766 is a good voice phone hobbled by Verizon's oppressive plan pricing.

Motorola Entice W766 Review

This is a great PHONE. It's not a pocket computer.

 

This is a phone for people who want a PHONE. It will go several days on a charge with modest phone use, and generally provides very good call quality for both the user and the person listening on the other end. It's a great phone if you're more...

Good battery life. Sound quality for both the user and the person on the other end is excellent. Bought this for my dad and when he called it sounded like he was on a land line - so I got one too. Doesn't drop calls too often

Fussy about the charger used. Requires proprietary software to store data or media

Motorola Entice W766 (Verizon Wireless)

 

I live in a rural area. For those in cities & are totally inactive this phone might be tolerable. However, there are so many other annoying issues. Like most, the phone has buttons on the side. These are always setting off 'please say a command' If I...

Sound is Good, Battery Life Good

Terrible signal acquizition. All local friends on Verizon get better signal, this phone is useless 90% of the time. Settings spontaneously change & very difficult to navigate menus to change back. Display on front broke after 2 weeks
