Not having my face book forwarded pain in the but fr me. The int thing i could come up with ks the.ability to delet some of the apps that come pree installed like blockbuster a.d kindle amazon.
Ed. note: edited for foul language typo
The pros: the battery life, the fact that it is waterproof, and the ease of use.
The Cons: I bought my Defy 18 days ago and last night the screen cracked. Yes, that's right, the unbreakable phone has broken. The kicker is, It cracked while charging. I plugged it in, set in on my bookshelf where it charged for several hours. Upon retrieving the phone, there was a large crack across the bottom of the screen. I called my carrier who referred me to Motorola. There, I got the run around. I was told that the company would not cover a cracked screen, but that I could send the phone in for an evaluation to determine if it had physical damage. I asked what counted as physical damage and was told (among others) a cracked screen, which would not be covered.
When I explained that I had only owned the phone for 18 days, I was flat out told that it did not matter. Cracked screen = no repair. So, there you go. My carrier tells me that this is a Motorola problem and Motorola refuses to take responsibily for their faulty product.
