AwesomeCellfone

 

Feb 11, 2005 by AmandaCassarola

This fone is by far the most awesome one that I have owned or played with. (I work in a cellfone store) It is tiny and light weight. First the cons, odd silvery color maybe mine isn't silver at all, more like light bronze or something. No speakerfone, but why would you need speakerfone if you have bluetooth. (I know bluetooth does not come with the phone but you can buy a small module from Motorola to make it bluetooth capable) Now, the awesome PROS, loud and clear, tiny and light, beautiful screen images inside and out, had the fone for almost a year and the OS never crashed on me, great talk time on the battery, with the small Motorola bluetooth module attached you can download MP3s to your fone with no length or sampling restrictions. (your cpu has to have bluetooth too, my laptop has it). Too many PROS to list, check out others reviews, I don't see why would anyone not like this Awesome fone.

Great phone!!!!

I think that this is one of the master piece's that Motorola has come up with. I think that this phone have all the grand features that a gadget freak would need to keep him, or her busy. I was also however disappointed in the fact that this particular phone would not open my garage door, or act as my satellite remote control. I mean I wish they would make a phone that would allow you to instantly turn ESPN on. Hmm well if they do, then I am there first in line to buy it!!!!!! Bueno Phone!!!!!

BETTER than the V710 and V400

 

Aug 13, 2004 by purplerinne

I was looking to buy the V710 through Verizon, but was lured by this phone instead. It is ALOT smaller than all the other phones out there, and it's unlocked, so it can be used by any network. This phone is not available in the U.S., but if you can find an agent that has it, it's WORTH it!!!! This phone is my upgrade from the V400, and although alot of functions were the same..this still stood out above!!

pros:
the phonebook!!! finally motorola made the phonebook easier than any other model
camera- sharp pics WITH flash, and it has video
vibe&ring- it doesn't vibrate, stop, and then ring...it does it simultaneusly (u know what i mean if you've own a motorola before)
size- it's small like the samsung s307, and lightweight

cons:
the time- it's set to a 24 hr military time and i don't know how to make it 12 hrs.
no speaker phone- not a big deal, but it is handy
no bluetooth- but that could be a pro so you don't have to spend the extra money
since it's not available in the U.S. ringtones and graphics are limited.
you have to set up the internet connection to your service provider because the phone is unlocked. it's a little tricky and you may need to call your provider to get the info.

OVERALL...this phone is worth checking out..and for 199.99 it's not bad at all!! I don't know if it's ever going to be available here, but hopefully it will be.

Bravissimo!!!

It's been a long time since Motorola came out with a phone I could get excited about. The V878 is compact, good volume from the handset, and excellent RF performance.

The OS is different but took me no time to become familiar with it. For all of you who hated Motorola's address book? Your prayers have been answered.

The browser is quick....faster than the V600. The camera takes sharp pics as well.

The only negatives are: 1. no bluetooth, 2. back battery cover a little flimsy, 3. no police scanner, 4. No fish finder and, 5. no remote car starter.

Highly recommended..
