Motorola RAZR V3
Extenal picture caller id?
I love the look of the razr v3 but would it have the external picture caller id?
New Phones in the market!
Also I would like to know if there are available for sale on the Motorola website (or when will they be available) or may be available through other carriers that offer GSM unlocked phones.
Now I can see on the site that it says the phone isn't available yet. But is that just for the US market or for the entire world? I've got a guy claiming to have 10 of these phones right now for $380 each and he wants western union payment. I've come here since you're all the cell phone fanatics.
Am I right in saying this deal is too good to be true and that I'm probably going to get ripped off if I buy one?
Thanks in advance for the replies.
RAZR looks great BUT......
I hope the V3 is more than a styling exercise.

question for Rich
I was wondering if you had heard any tentative release times on any of these models, or anything that's a little tighter in than what quarter they'll be in. I've heard that cingular's phasing out the v600 for the v551, this doesn't make sense to me. As far as I've heard the 551 is still pending FCC approval. It would make more sense (to me) to put the A630 in it's place and have that hold them over until the EDGE equipped 551 is approved, tested and released.
I'd also love to hear which, if any, of these phones have begun testing for potential carriers.
Any information you have is GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks a lot!
before you dehydrate from drooling over the V3...
But's let's not kid ourselves - here's a few things it does NOT have:
1. MP3 Player
2. Expandable/removable memory
3. Headset jack (yes - I know it has Bluetooth - read on)
4. Decent battery life (Moto rated 2 hrs of talktime!?!?!?!)
5. A simple charging method - the mini-USB adaptor to power/charge the phone looks destined to be easily lost.
To me - this phone was clearly designed for LOOKS, not a moderate to heavy phone user. If you read the mobile-review.com review ( link is already posted several times on the message board), the battery life sucks on this thing. And the 1-2 hour talktime rating gets wors...
A780? EDGE/GPRS question?
a630 for TMo--surprised
I'M NEW TO THIS -- & A LITTLE SLOW
I hear it's not for anyone on a budget. That has to be pricey----
When the hell is the 3rd quarter 2004 ??
Great report! Thanks for the details.
One thin I noticed on the A630 photos was the disparity between the signal levels. On the Cingular unit(it hurts me to say) the signal is much stronger.
Were the pics taken in NYC or Chicago?
I've been excited about the A630 for quite some time and this has definitely sealed the deal for me. When I head to Cingular that's most definately going to be what I grab.
It's nice to see the newer phones in a comparison to a phone that most of us have some experience with, the v600. It really puts things into perspective on the size of these models...especially with the V3.
Very good article overall, four stars. I can't speak for everyone, but I'm excited.
Can't wait to get my hands on my A630.
Very much appreciated!
long range bluetooth?
Wouldn't this make it a little easier to hack without being noticed? The low range of bluetooth as is makes it kinda tough to not be seen within 30 ft. of someone.
