Motorola KRZR K1
K1 is a great phone
It is a terrific phone. Great sound. Works perfectly with Cingular's Edge network. Bluetooth is loud and clear.
Great Little Phone
I got this phone 2 months ago and I gotta say it's one of the best I've owned so far. Sleek and stylish, it delivers the goods inside and out.
Fantastic Reception, Quality built, Large Viewable interior screen, Easy to navigate (read the manual) Great little camera, expandable, Easy access to PC via Bluetooth.
Ringtones could be a bit louder
The fact that is is a fingerprint magnet is far outweighed by it's overall appearance.

Hard to think of bad thing to say about this phone. I have used it on and off for the last year or so and have had no problems at all. In my opinion one of the best phones that has ever been made.
Not too happy
I have had this phone since right after they came out. I purchased mine through AT&T. I loved this phone at the start but I quickly realized that I was not a big fan of this phone. My center button fell out, I couldn't keep signal (I live in the Atlanta, GA) area, and it would lock up on me. I would be on the phone and try to hang up but the phone would freeze and I could not do anything but shut it down. It has continued and gotten worse...I now I have to shut it down at least 6 times a day. I was very disappointed in this phone.
-the sleek look
-continually needing rebooting
-button fell off
-lack of cases that it fits in
This was my third cell phone. It has given me nearly 2 years of faithful service. I had the Sony Z500a before this one. I like them both but I like the Z500a better in the end (despite it being as large as a house).
-First phone anyone in my family has owned to get reception at a golf course in no-mans land.
-Solid construction. Have only dropped mine a few times in 2 years with no detrimental effects. Metal battery door.
-Quality of sound is decent
-Micro SD easy to access and easy to transfer content. I purchased the 1GB Micro and a USB transfer adapter from Best Buy for $30 when the (then) Cingular store wanted $50 for a comparable Micro SD by itself.
-Small and stylish with a solid flip action.
-Front does smudge, but nothing a shirt can't buff away
-Music player hard to access
-I found it to be a bit laggy going from menu to menu and response time to some button presses was slow.
-Would go from 2 bars of battery to "Warning Low Battery" signal in a matter of minutes.
-Battery life fluctuated with no change in amount of use. Sometimes it would be fine for a few days and sometimes I have to charge it every night.
-Sometimes calls will not go through for no reason. I will have 3-4 bars and it just sits there saying "Dialing". Hanging up and pressing call again fixes the problem.
All in all it is a solid phone but it's time for something new. I was most impressed with the camera. It is phenomenal for a phone.
ok had better
~had to replace the battery 3 times. all of them started to bubble. still had like 10 min of talk time before phone would die with our warning. (yes i used all the batteries correctly and only used verizon/moto chargers)
~text stopped working no software update could fix it. verizon had no idea why and i had to buy a new phone at my cost. (was not happy at all about that)
~picture quality was awful.
~sound quality was not comparable to others phones i have had.
~reset it self when ever it felt like it (turned off then right back on) didnt matter if i was talking on it or not.
~froze all the time which made it reset as well... no update or soft ware would help that. (i found that to be true with all moto phones though)
~likes the music option (although i never used it because i had no battery lol)
this was my 2 Motorola brand phones and i will never buy another one. i think i will stick with the LG for now own.(verizon)
and if you are a ATT i LOVE LOVE LOVE sony erricson phones... the features are lovely and the battery life is amazing. AMAZING
wish verizon would come out with sony phones.
i am on the verge of switching back to ATT just so i can have my sony back
Very dependable phone!
I have had this phone for a couple of years, the reviews on it seem to be right on the mark. It is a great phone, gets great service, looks cool and has pretty much all of the features that you need! (Mp3, internet, microSD, good camera, etc.) Yes it does fingerprint up, but from what I can tell, most cool looking phones have that issue anymore, I got the clear case for mine, which allows the blue color to show through and gives it some protection. I have 2 kids who have used my phone, my hubby also when his Blackberry can't get service, I have dropped it numerous times, it goes into the depths a purse and I can still hear it ringing while driving down the road with the radio on, so I give this phone a great rating because it is all that I expect it to be.
It's pretty good
Well.. I have had this phone for about 4 months.. and it is okay.. i haven't had any problems yet... The screen gets scratched VERY easy. And.. It freezes up really bad
Pro's=Good Memory.. The battery is okay..
Con's=screen gets scratched easy.. and freezes up alot
KRZR K1 T-Mobile
So, there's a "known issue" with these phones, according to T-Mobile. Something about it depending on the software version you have, but either way...
the buttons delay. Looks like the phone is freezing at first, but after at least 20 seconds, it "catches up." I've made 3 exchanges for this problem. Now they're replacing it with a new make/model, but I WANTED this phone to work. : (
