Motorola V260 / V262
v260 voice training
My phone book had entries for both "verizon" and "home". The phone interpreted my spoken "verizon" as "home".
The spoken dial by digits works great, but I need a reliable voice dial by name because my wife is bad at remembering phone numbers.
I wish there is a way around this problem, because this phone has great reception power.
Is memory shared for ringtones and contacts?
Does anyone know if the ringtons and contacts share the same memory or not?
New-Every-Two Price Question
I even tried calling Verizon customer service but the guy on the phone never heard of the V260 and could not tell me how much I should have been charged, but he did say that "it sounded like I got a good deal...

USCC V262 Update
After using the V262 I do have to say it is going to be a great replacement to the T731. The phone has great key tactile response and Shortcut key selection. Also the negative colored external display is a neat new addition. My only quip would be the extremely tiny primary display. When they say thumbnail view space they are not kidding!
Overall a great entry level flip phone perfect for new users or young adults.
Any news on V260 at verizon stores or online?
v260 or lg3200?
Not than I am too picky here: I need a Tri-Mode, flip, speaker phone, dual display, web access, replaceable cover, no camera, no bluetooth that is NOT made in Korea. Is that too much to ask for? I hope not.
Oh yeah, I would also like it to to be out in the next few months with Verizon. If you know of any others that fit the bill, please let me know.
Is the V260 smaller than the V265?
For those who have seen or own both are they the same size?
I already posted a user review, so I'll add this update to the Forum. I got my wife a V260, on sale at Radio Shack now. Talked to her for 1/2 hr on my way home from work tonight w/ my V265 and the call was crystal clear the whole way on both ends. I've had problems with some dead spots in the past en-route home, and didn't even notice with this phone. I'm really impressed with a low cost phone that has this this kind of jump in performance. We'll see how it lives over many months of use and abuse, but so far I'm extremely happy and proud that MOT is getting back into the game and competing well.
Purchased v260 -my first impressions
I just purchased a Motorola v260 for one of my employees. I bought it a Radio Shack on Friday afternoon and they only had one. I played around with it Friday night and shipped it to the user on Saturday morning, therefore I cannot send you pics or check anything for you, but I wanted to post my opinions of this one.
The phone seems to be about the same size as the v60, maybe a touch wider (side-to-side) and thinner (front-to-back) than the v60s. The v260 is all siler and has a "reverse" LCD type of front display which seems to work good in most lighting conditions (light numerals on black background) . The inside screen is slightly larger than the v60 but similar in quality to the LG4500, maybe a touch be...
