I have it, however, I think I have bad luck. Just got it last week, dropped it and the screen is messed.. I am still in 15 day period so getting it replaced by verizon. i think the battery sucks compared to my old moto 720. but i have the best signal i have ever had and overall i really like it, which is why i am just getting a new 276 instead of a different phone.

i have it. its not a top notch phone however its good for a first phone. it doesnt have many features and the screen is kinda small. the camera isnt all that great either i recently upgraded to an LG VX7000. i would say it has great speaker phone and earpiece. 😁

I've had mine for about four months I guess. I was using an LGv6000, which would not work from home. We live on the wrong side of a mountain, I think. I had to drive to the ferry dock to make calls. I could see a tower on the other side of the channel.

All I need is a phone that works. I don't need a camera. I'm a photographer and have more cameras than I will ever use and almost always have one with me. Since I travel a lot I need something that will give me reliable connections under lots of different conditions. I researched the available phones with this in mind, and learned that the phone I was using was only a CDMA. The phone that seemed to have the best reviews with the criteria I cared about in mind was the v276. It is a ...

One more thought.

My only complaint is not with the phone, but with Verizon. They have supplied the phone, as they do with I think all their phones, with lots of useful features turned off. So far, nobody has been able to hack their way into the os. I've heard that limited workarounds are avialable through bitpim, but haven't tried yet.

Since I want my phone to sound like a gibbon duet when the ring is turned on, and verizon's tastes are considerably more boring than that, I'm going to need to spoil their fun. Somebody got a class action suit on them for the same thing with the 710, and won. Verizon has great coverage, but I have problems with their control fetishes. And their bottom line, which they are inflating at my expen...

I can't even give this phone a 1/2 rating because it sucks so bad!

You can't just plug the charger in and walk away. You have to coax it into charging. You have to wiggle the wire, unplug it and replug it in a few times, maybe remove the battery... all this just to get the damn thing charged?! Makes me really mad.

This is my 2nd v276. The 1st one absolutely would not charge no matter how much a screwed with it. I think the 2nd phone they gave me is refurbished.

I plugged it in all night and unplugged it. As soon as I unplugged it the frigging low battery BEEP started beeping! WTF>>>>????

The people I called on my old sanyo scp-8100-s always commented on the phones great sound quality. They said it sounded like I was right next ...
