Motorola EM330 / EM28
i am a wireless salesman when i read the specs on this phone it seemed like a decent simple flip phone.
1. the looks, not one person (so far) likes the phones color/looks.
2. weird error messages, is the phone really overheating in a 68 degree air conditioned store? also said wrong battery/charger sometimes.
3. will not work in other countries, even the carrier has the right frequencies. no one at at&t or motorolla can explain why.
4. randomly powers down and never turns back on. tried removing battery/sim card tried charging nothing works.(this happened to our live demo phone as well as several customers phones.)
1. battery life is good
2. its nice and loud
3. fm radio (i couldnt get any stations with it, but its there)
so if you want an ugly phone with good battery life and the exciting feature of possibly shutting off forever than this is the phone for you!!
I got 3 of these phones in April of '09..by May of '09 they were all broke!
I thought they were easy to use.
The hinges break! They broke on every single one, in the same place. There was No abuse to any of these phones and yet our carrier would not make good on them. I fought for weeks with them, finally taking it to Motorola. They replaced 1, telling me the other one was physical damage because the piece had literally fell out! Well, now they admit there is a problem with them! I just received another replacement phone and when I opened the box, a piece was already coming off!! So, back on the phone I went. And my husbands phone, which has been in use for 1 full week, is cracked in the same place. So now we have 2 phones on the way!! I will never buy a Motorola again!!
I got this phone 2 weeks ago from ATT. The phone was free with a 2 year contract. It's a great phone. The only con is the battery door. The latch broke when I took the door off. ATT sent me a new back cover.
I bought this phone because it was cheap and my LG phone had broken. It is a great phone. I even accidently ran over it with my car and it still works fine!
Great internet options
Great streaming video
Very Loud ringtones
FM radio sounds great
Very easy to use
camera not the best quality
Has crystal clear sound but it wants to breakup sometimes.
Very nice phone..would recommend it
Can't take the heat
Our summer temperatures often reach 100deg. This is the only phone of many that I have owned that goes into shut down mode. I had the phone in a belt pouch, while I was sitting in my air conditioned office. I returned the first phone, and received a replacement. After 1 week the replacement had the same problem. The message is "The phone is overheated and is in cool down mode. Emergency calls only." or something to that affect. No one has been able to explain or correct the problem. Went back to my RZR. If you live in a cold environment this might be the phone for you, if the ambient temp gets over 80 you might consider another phone.
Looks can be decieving
I sell this phone and when we first got this phone I thought, "what a piece of junk". The color was ugly and the icons on it looked the same as a motorola phone a five years ago.I honestly thought this phone wasn't going to sell. Boy was I wrong. The feedback that I have been getting on this phone is amazing!
THE BATTERY LIFE!!!!! There is 7.5 hours of talk time that is the most I've seen in a phone.
Great call clarity.
Has a AM/FM radio.
Good music player.
Standard headphone jack.
THE PRICE!! free at a lot of places
If you are looking for a good reliable phone thats gets the job done. Just don't judge a book by it's cover.
Good phone but not great. Have seen better ones. Be very careful when removing the battery (back cover). I removed the back cover and the spring from the latch came flying off. I still can not find the tiny spring. Now the back cover is not tight and snug. Called Motorola several times to get a rear housing and battery clasp for the phone but it's like talking to a bunch of morons. The only thing they are willing to send me is a back cover. I do not need a back cover, I need the rear housing and the battery clasp which is connected to the rear housing. Now waiting for AT&T to send me another phone. Get with it Motorola. Send me the rear housing and the battery clasp.
