I am having problems over the past two months, I can hardly hear people on the other end with volume turned up all the way, before that had problems with phone going into analog/roam while sitting at home! Took it into the store and they told me they don't have any in stock at the store or the warehouse, so they tried to give me some other crap phone, but I refused...I need to call VZ back and see what they can do, will keep you posted

Went to VZ today, had them order me a new V-265, should be here in a couple days, and hope this one is better. FYI, there was a lady in front of me with the same problem with a 265!

if you have gotten the phone within the last month you should be fine. outside of that the recall is in effect for most v265. the problem is there is something wrong with the hardware where the phones speaker decides to stop working after about 3-4 months. it will make you have troubles hearing, and will definately make it hard for others to hear you. if you are iffy on the subject just bring your phone into a corporate verizon store and they can diagnose it for you.

Well, I just got my replacement phone and i thought my problems were over, but was I wrong 😳 Now, when I shut my phone, it still says "Verizon Wireless" on the outside display, and if I push down on the lid, it shows the time, and let go, it goes back to the verizon display!!!!! I just called and emailed verizon and gave them a earful...I can't wait to get rid of this piece of crap they call a cell phone!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry, but I have to reply to this.

Don't be such a know-it-all smug little jerk. You work for the industry, why would someone who does NOT work for the industry know the differences between phones?

Do you know the details of how a nuclear power plant is run? Well if you don't know the maximum water temperature allowed for safety at a nuclear power plant, well I guess that makes you an idiot doesn't it?

Don't be such a jerk.

Many of us know the difference between the phones because we have had so many of them... VZW DOES NOT provide quality product... The venders do, but, VZW mucks sooooo much with the software that they create many of the problems... VZW has the network, bu...

I agree that this phone is a stinking pile of garbage. However...

I was not responding to the complaint about the phone I was reacting to the condescending, nasty tone of the message to which I was responding...which said...

I totally agree with 'shayalon' comments......, we post messages here to get answers and solutions to our phone/service problems. We don't need any jerks calling us idiots!

stop your whining, if you would have been smart you would have consulted reviews before buying the phone.

im sorry for calling you an idiot, but the phone was recalled, because of a software issue.

call customer service, they will tell you there was a massive recall.

this isnt dr. phil. i can act however i want.

Shleeban, I can't believe you are calling somebody an idiot when you obviously don't have a clue what you are talking about. This phone has not been recalled and it doesn't have a software problem. I do see a lot of the first units returned for problems with the speaker, but we have a service notice from Motorola that explains how to fix the problem and all the recent phones we've sold haven't had any problems at all because they fixed it in production. Although I fault Mot for shipping this phone too early if there were problems with the audio, but my experience is that the software works very well with few if no problems.

you are dumber than the other guy, let me think. if motorola has a large scale speaker problem on a phone and requires a mass number of people to bring their phone in to get it fixed what do we call it?! ding-ding-ding you are the lucky winner! a recall on the speaker!

i am thoroughly disappointed in your knowledge on life, i was suprised to see that someone of such a small brain was not aborted at birth.

Wow. You know we're talking about cell phones here, not warfare, abortion rights or politics. I simply pointed out that you were using "recalled" in the wrong context, and now I'm the devil. You should go over the mental heath message boards.

But if you check the user reviews as you suggest you will see the v265 is not such a bad phone. The 265 with a user review rating of 3.75 is higher than the V710 and right in line with other popular phones such as LG 6100. While I don't doubt that a number of 265s had problems, it seems that the majority of them are solid performers. Yes the camara sucks and the screen is small but when you get it down to what a phone is supposed to do - make a call and stay connected - the 265 can't be beat. I have 3 in my family and have a friend with 2 and after a lot of comparing we think they can't be beat.
