Great phone-just what I was looking for
This is a great basic cell phone that has a few extra features for icing on the cake. It has incredible battery life, great reception and loud volume out of the ear piece. There is also a memory card slot with external touch controls. The extras are just that extras and I don't want to talk about them much because the phone really shines as what it is-A GREAT PHONE!!!!
-good battery life
-still same VZW menu (boring)
-screen isn't as big as V3m
Overall great phone for those who aren't looking for a ton of features.

Best phone for awile
IT is a great phone the vibration is not to strong but other then that it is great. it also has good phone reception
Good sound volume
We just went for our "new every two" with Verizon last night and I have played with the new phone a good part of the day today and it is a very nice phone from what I can tell so far.
We've had mostly Motorola's and like them all. I like the "soft paint" feel, not quite as slippery in the hands.
Pretty feature rich and fairly easy to use.
My daughter and I got the purple and my husband, having none of the girl color, got the slate or light black color.
I love the touch buttons on the front that you can use with the phone closed.
It is easier to see the menu and option choices than our older Motorola.
After rebates, we only paid about $77.00 for three phones, two Plantronics bluetooth earpieces and got 500 free minutes for the year.
I love this phone.
Pros: soft touch paint, purple color, nice themes, itapen (I've missed you), great build quality, user-friendly, great call quality, reception, RF, Moto is back...!
Cons: Camera could be better (even though not 2 mp, the E815 camera was better than this), wish there was better calendar functionality on the non-pda phones, but...
Not a deal breaker.
This phone is perfect for me. If you like Motorola and just need a decent phone, you will not be disappointed.
Finally a good Moto from Verizon
I have seen and used alot of Motorola products that Verizon has carried and to be honest, I was never very excited about them. The menus were generic and the whole phone was incapable of any personalization. This new w755 has hit all angles. Not only is the call quality vibrant in sound and clarity, the performance of the battery is strong and the enternal controls are very convenient.
*Refreshed selection of tones and alerts
*You can have ringtones messaged to you and you can save them into your sounds. (I dont know why the previous rating stated you can't because this is definately a possibility)
*Multiple choices for display themes
*Intuitive Voice Recognition
*Im not too happy with the camera, images in low lighting are not the best quality. LG usually always has a great camera.
I work in a VZW store and I just sold one of these last week.. Reluctantly since the RAZOR was basically the worst phone I'ver ever had to sell... This was no better. Naturally it could be a fluke, but the one I sold came back in less than two days later with the typicl MOTO battery issue, and then less than two days after THAT with a no power issue. It was fried by no fault of the owner. Just fried. I switched him into a Samsung Alias and haven't heard anything from him since. Like I said though, could just be a Fluke...
This is one of the better flip phones I've had with verizon. Call reception is crystal clear, ringtones are loud, the vibrate is strong, the response of the menus is fast and texting is easy.
I am not a brand loyalist, as I am more interested in the product; not the nametag. However, Iâm coming from an LG VX-8700 after previously owning the Moto E815.
There was immediately attracted to the W755. The soft touch paint makes the phone easy to handle and it feels solid with a nice, sturdy hinge. The Bluetooth is easy to turn on and off using the touch screen.
I struggle with texting on most phones, but not with the W755. The keyboard was well thought out and provides excellent tactile response. This is the easiest clamshell phone for my big fingers to use. iTap works far better than LGâs offering.
A big plus (I wish LG would pay special attention to this) is Motorolaâs excellent speakerphone. I love that I can turn on the speakerphone and IT WILL STAY ON until I choose to turn it back off, even with the lid closed. My old VX-8700 has the most unfriendly speakerphone ever designed.
Bluetooth works as expected. I have not had any significant issues with either a Motorola H700 or a Plantronics Voyager 520, but I get a little better distance from the Plantronics. Regardless, both paired easily and work okay.
The screen is a little on the small side, but itâs sharp and sufficient for my needs. In short:
1. Great feel; nice size
2. Great call quality
3. Loud ringers
4. Strong vibrate
5. Speakerphone works well
6. Reception about as good as any quality phone, and better than my VX-8700
7. Mini USB charger interface
8. Menu is fairly fast
9. Voice dialing works better than with any other phone Iâve had
1. Not much protection for camera lens
2. The same old, miserable Verizon-forced menu
3. Unable to set sounds as ringers, even after texting them to yourself
4. Very few ringers provided, out of which only 2 are decent
TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT:
1. Acceptable battery life under heavy use
2. Micro-SD port is under the battery
3. Has a 2.5mm jack
4. Typical small screen on the cover
5. 1.3 MP camera
Motorola got it right this time ,the phone is a great size,take clear pictures,call quality is awsome,bluetooth is open,5 different display themes,not much lag in the software.I trade in my Samsung Glyde for this phone and I am glad I did. 5 out 5 for me.Way to go Motorola
