Cingular guy said they are not releasing the phone

Hey I just talked to a Cingular employee at the mall and he said that they are not releasing a Moto V551, and said the same about the V620. Who are you guys talking to when you talk about how they let you "play with the phone" and tell you how its hitting the market soon? These guys seemed clueless. Or maybe they just wanted to get rid of their V400s... who knows.

Anyway, will this phone come out for Cingular or just for ATT/T-Mobile? If not, then you please help me decide between the LG L1400 and the Moto V400? Think of price as a non-factor (both are fairly cheap). The Moto has 4 MB memory but I heard other problems about its functionality. The LG has a large color outer screen, but just 300K storage for photos and no USB connect. Whadd...

I am anxious for a new phone now that I decided to NOT purchase a V710 after that fiasco... Confused

FYI, 473 pages of complaints about that phone & still rising in the Phonescoop forum. That has to be a record!!! (and not a good one at that!) Wink

anybody know the EDGE spec of this phone

I am interested on this phone, and probably get this once T-Mobile releases (and activates EDGE)
it looks like V500+EDGE, but the EDGE class is unknown
if it's 4+1, this'll be good Wink

Will replace V600 @ Cingular

Just found out that we will no longer carry the V600. V551 will replace until A630 comes out. V551 should be available early October.

Will V551 also replace V400 and V300

Rolling Eyes Does anyone know if the V551 is also intended to replace the V400 and the V300 as well as the V500? After all the V500 appeared to be a V400 with bluetooth. The V400 and the v600 are of a similar age and we have the v620 coming in the 4th Q of 2004 followed later by the V635 to replace the V600. It stands to reason that moto would be ready to replace the V400 too.

Also does anyone have new price estimates for this phone and the RAZR V3 and the MPx220?

Blue tooth

Does anyone know if the 551 will have 2.0 or greater version of bluetooth. I noticed on the info page that it just said "yes" for blue tooth and not 2.0 which some phones info page does have. ~Drew

Beware of Motorola's Warranty

I purchased an unlocked Motorola 878, which broke three weeks after the purchase. I sent the phone to the Motorola Texas repair center. First they lost the phone then they returned it unrepaired. I have been given several different excuses for Motorola's failure to repair, which includes the following:
(1) The phone was not manufactured in the USA (however, none of the phones are).
(2) The repair is too costly.
(3) The phone was discontinued.
(4) The repair center does not have the parts
(5) Just buy another phone.

To date, Motorola has refused to honor its one year warranty. They have not repaired the phone, replaced the phone or resolved the situtation. During my last call to Motorola, a supervisor just hung up.

If this phone gets released like the rest of Motorolas phones then it should be out by the end of the year. But if anyone has any info on the release date please let me know. Thanks! Wink
