high price of music phone??


Jun 22, 2006, 7:49 PM
$179 for this?

Verizon has music phones for $70 (the RAZR V3m)

this is a good $110 more? for the ipod clickwheel thing on the front?

well, it does have a FM transmitter and a2dp that's worth the extra hunge...

Comparing those two phones is apples and oranges. 🙄

1) Un-crippled BT (Including a2DP)
2) Full duplex speakerphone
3) External player controls
4) FM Modulator
5) Changeable faceplates
6) Unreal battery life for a CDMA phone
7) Not a trashy RAZR
😎 No crappy VZW UI!!
the list could go on for a while...

Let's look @ some comparable models from Verizon... oh wait, nothing.

There are less expensive options on a music phone from Sprint anyway. Samsung A920, Samsung Blade, Sanyo 7500. Do a little research next time before the post please. This one of the most expensive phones that Sprint offers right now.

ok who needs FM transmitter anyway? You can use stereo skrs (like LG Vx8300 on verizon) or if you want to play it in a car you can buy a car adapter or use BT. plus the V3m doesnt have crippled bluetooth.

-dont care about outside music controls
- faceplates?? what? who needs that
-if i can use it for a day and charge it at night its fine
-razr has a full spkrphne
-razrs are good quality (at least vzw. cingulars suck)

plus about the samsung a920, thats pretty close the LG VX8300 and Samsung SCH-a950 on verizon.

although i will agree with you on the Verizon operating system. its very stupid (on moto v325 they put ring lights options in ringer types submenu)

When it really comes down to it, do we really need anything in a phone besides the capability of making phone calls? Probably not.

Never seen a car that supports A2DP, could be wrong there... 😕 And what is this "car adapter" you refer to? If it's an 1/8 inch stereo to 1/8 inch stereo male to male cable, you'd be right w/ the adapter the LG FUSIC comes with. But, what if there is no aux jack on my car stereo? That's not a very common feature. Sure, you could couple it from stereo RCA jacks, but then you're pulling out your car stereo, and then it's not interchangeable. Plus, most factory stereos don't have those!

-So it would be very convenient to have to open up your phone every time you want to change tracks? Doubt it...

i mean the cassette adapter that you put into the Tape deck in your car. in case you aren't familiar, it looks like a cassette tape with a wire coming out of it. at the end of the wire is a 3.5 mm jack. you plug the tape in and hit PLAY and plug in the phone. The adapters sell for like $10.

Why cant you just keep your phone open then if you dont want to open and close it?

RAZRs are little more flimsy than an i560 but not so much that they are garbage! Compared to the Verizon UI, Motorolas is very easy to use...

I was surprised to see this topic even came up. Does anyone remember the 9000? Now that was an expensive phone. For all that you get in this phone, this is a GREAT price.
And why in the world are we still on the RAZR? Bottome line, if you're considering buying a music phone and you want something CHEAP, you're gonna get a music phone that doesn't have a lot of features. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE STILL HAVE TAPE DECKS OUT THERE! That's fine you obviously need a cheap phone. So go buy that RAZR and car kit, that's what America's about right?
On the other hand if you want a feature packed phone at a great price get the Fusic. Nuf said! 😲

Are there really people out there that think the razor is a good phone????????? Just hold it in your hand, push some buttons, and you'll know its crap.

Why is this in the LG Fusic thread?

because of senor snobby who is getting attitude with pretty much anything that's said, regardless of the fact that he pretty much asked for the info he's getting.

yeah, the razr is a pos. i have a few friends that have it (on different networks) and i hear nothing but complaints from them ''can't wait 'til i can get a new phone!" one even asked to me to help him research other phones.

as far as i know, razr is also limited in the music files it supports as well as the removable sd card (btw that design sucks) it supports. it doesn't support mp4's, which are like mp3's only compressed so you can fit more. the cassette adapter is all well and good bu...

Drop a razor, and watch all the little tiny pieces of plastic shatter 🙂

Yes, the Fusic is spendy. I bought mine on ebay for $200, which is way, way more than I have every spent on a phone.

The FM transmitter works very well, and it is nice. Still, pugging it directly into your stereo is best. If you don't have a hardline, then the transmitter is cool.

One other important thing to consider is the size of the memory in the Razr, and whether it has a removable card. You will fill the card up with music really fast. The Fusic's stock 64Mb card is only about one album's worth and gets old in a hurry.

The Fusic has a removable card (that is only 64Mb), and you can buy up to 2Gb-sized cards.

My first consideration in a phone is reception, and I'll tell you, the Fusic is one of the best out there.
