Just orderd from Verizon

I got the get new every 2 year plan. This phone looked like a winner. Love the fact it takes an 8G SDHC micro Smile. Goin to love adding all my mp3 files to it and much more! I orderd the silver one, the purple one I did like but figured I would tone it down a bit by getting the silver.

Newegg has great deals on 8G micro SDHC cards, got a Transend for just a little under $20 Very Happy

My wife decided to go with an old clam shell phone, LG vx5500 and I rubbed it in her face the whole time. I kept telling her to go for the purple one but she was too stubborn.

Ughh I can't wait to get my new toy, oops I mean phone Cool
Hi there!

I hope you have better luck with yours than I had with mine. I've been having battery issues for more than 2 weeks now and I am taking it back today to get a new one. I've had the phone for about 3 months.

If you want to play music o...

Maybe too affordable?

I wouldn't consider myself a rabid fan but I have been with Motorola my entire cellular life. V710, V3m (hacked), and V9m (about to be hacked). I thought I would branch out for my next phone and try a sideways slider with QWERTY. I handled the Rival at the Verizon Store on Tuesday and was a little disappointed. I don't get the color scheme and the buttons seem so un-Motorola and gimmicky. I'm used to something solid with a solid feel and well machined lines that run the length of the cell phone body. The Rival was a puzzle. By the time I'm due for an upgrade hopefully they'll have rolled out something else.
It's a piece of sh*t. The delay on the screen is horrible, and the overall feel of the phone is crap. It is not a normal Motorola.

It's a Kyocera in Motorola skin. That's got to be it.
and the reviewer doesn't seem to hold the build quality against the Rival. Are all Video Tours that positive? Maybe I'll give it another look in the VZW store but I'm still hoping for something a little more polished.

Motorola Rival difference ?

Besides, having a touch screen, how different is this phone from lets say a Pantech Matrix ?

Been there done that

I've had this phone for about five years now and have had no problems with it at all.


Pros:
Free
Waterproof
Shockproof
Shatterproof
Loud ringer
Extra battery included
Cuts monthly bill in half

Cons:
Made by Motorola
Not an iphone
Does not support quad band GSM
Keys get broke after five years of heavy use


I'd say if you could get this phone and you just need a crappy phone for the next five years then go for it. If you'd rather have a phone that will die in a year and cost you a lot then go with something else.
ps, i made this all up
