I work at an AT&T store and I just had a customer bring one of these in. He bought it in London for $1000. A little steep in my opinion but this phone is sweet. The camera is a little disappointing, it is only a VGA, but the overall feel of the phone is great. It is very light and unthinkably thin. The keypad is very interesting also. The whole phone is metal including the keypad. The Motorola packaging is quite cool too. It comes in a rectangular box made of metal and the top slides off revealing the phone. Then there is a whole layer underneath with all the accessories. It came with a data cable also!! I would have to say if this phone is not very expensive once a carrier picks it up, it may do very well.
I saw this phone first hand at the Motorola booth at the Digital Life show at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. All I can say is "WOW". This has to be one of the best looking phones i've ever seen. It is so thin, light weight, and nicely built. Doesn't feel like the other cheap phones out there.
The Motorola reps said that this is going to be GSM only for now and that there are no plans for a CDMA model (This sucks since I have Verizon).
I've heard contrary to what has been posted here that the RAZR 3 will not just be a Cingular exclusive. It was Motorola's intent that this be offered by both carriers as are most of their quad band phones. What I've heard is that AT&T will also be offering this phone as Cingular is looking to maintain consistency across their user base and they will be absorbing the AT&T installed customer base eventually.
Can anyone validate this or are we likely to hear conflicting data till it shows up on either or both of their web sites?
Anyone got any updated info on when Cingular might be getting the RAZR V3??? I know a lot of people have asked this question before, was just wondering what the latest "rumors" were...
P.S. Anyone got any info on the range of bluetooth for this phone??? Supposedly it is "long-range" bluetooth but I was kinda hoping that was wrong & that it only supported the 10-meter "short-range" bluetooth, so I didn't have to worry about the guy next door synching with my phone... Ten meters is plenty for me. Thanks.
I have a question for the lucky few people who already own a RAZR V3: Does it really have long-range bluetooth on this phone or just the 10-meter short-range bluetooth?
I know that the Phonescoop site says it has long-range bluetooth, but I am "hoping" that it really just has the 10-meter short-range bluetooth instead.
I am hoping that it is the 10-meter short-range version due to my concern for security and battery-life, cuz I am thinking that the long-range variety would drain the battery even faster and I don't want the guy next door synching with my phone... 😉
Does anyone know the GPRS settings for SunCom in Virginia for the V3? I am expecting my unlocked V3 any day now 😁 , and would like to be able to do more than just make & receive calls. I bought a great Nokia 6680 from ATT and unlocked it, but SunCom doesn't have the codes so all I have is a phone with a foldout keyboard that cannot access the web, send or receive email from a POP server or utilize the IM features. 😢
If you present an "unlocked" phone to a carrier, say a GSM carrier, and request service for that phone, there shouldn't be a problem right? I'm asking because I'm considering buying the unlocked V3 off the internet.
In a few days/weeks, will someone with this phone please update us on the real world battery life? I find the claim of 6.7 hours of talk time to be pretty lofty considering the slim size of the phone/battery. thanks.
i got this straigh from the motorola web site that the apr of the RAZR V3 is 499. that means it's probily gonna sell for 299.99 with new service down then road. I cant say exactly where i found it but i can post a pic of it for any unbelievers.
