It's not super snappy, but it's not slow. just keep in mind its a Motorola.

It does have some substantial features. It has SongID, which it listens to songs and will tell you the artist, album, and song title after about 5 seconds. It did some pret...

Welcome T-Mobile to the wonderful world of 2006

What a pathetic joke. You know, people are RAILING on Sprint and Samsung for the M800 and its a true bargain at $129. $200 for a crappy ass old MOTO?

Any people wonder why Motorola is going of business and why T-Mobile has the fewest subscribers. Of course their CSI is awesome, they have the LOWEST subscriber base.

And I am a former T-Mobile high ARPU client who just recently bailed. I live in Los Angeles and their is not a HINT of ANY 3G love out here. Pathetic. I waited and waited.

HELIO done, Next up T-Mobile USA. I wish Rich and the original Eric would come back and bring some investigative journalism back to this site like they used to do.
I must say that I have had T-Mobile for 5 years now and the only thing that I am disatisfied with is their rural coverage. Its not just about phones. I have really appreciated them and their service!

Shea Stadium

Home of the Mets, Eric. What do I win?
Not to hard considering the Mets is clearly seen behind the plate

It is just me or was that review completely Biased? Its like the reviewer already hated the phone before he even started using it.

Maybe you could handle the phone better if you took better care of you hands.

"Unfortunately, if you don't remember the "down" nav toggle gets you to your contact list, you have to scroll through the Shortcuts or Main Menu to get to the contact list itself, a multi-click operation"

Really? I don't even know what to say about that comment. That's just trying to find something negative to say.

Terrible Review.

When?, What provider? more information PLEASE!!!

Phone looks good, has about everything I'm looking for. Who's the provider? When may we might get an actual release date? and cost? Surprised
At&t is one of the providers, and im not sure of the release date yet.
I'm shopping for a new phone and the ROKR2 looks too sweet to ignore. I REALLY HOPE this comes to Verizon!!! If anyone hears about this coming to pass before too long, let me know here..
im sure you all seen the headlines. tmobile is getting it.
T-mobile abt 2wks

Gotta get it!
You want the real phone scoop? The ROKR comes out in June and will be available through T-Mobile.
by Cellphonesignal, it'll be 30 April
estimated price will be $300 MSRP

Does it seem kinda stupid to anyone else that Motorola really doesn't have any 3G phones on the market except for the Razr V3XX, V9, and the Q?

I would agree, yet most area are only edge, hurry up 3G!!! Twisted Evil
Rumor has it that Motorola's Linux/Java platform doesn't support 3G yet. Sad
