RAZR Cell Phone

I was just curious if anyone has this phone/ RAZR/RAZOR...whatever the hell they call it?

I am getting a new phone and plan this week and was wondering if anyone has anything good/bad to say about this phone?

When they first came out I heard some people.....even certain people that worked at cell phone places say that these phones were not that great.......and that after time, the number pad starts to not work I guess. Not sure if this is all BS or what. Anyways...........all that have this phone.......let me know how it's working for you.

Thanks alot guys/gals.

I got my wife one and it has survived for over 6 months now. I can't tell you how many things she's broken over the years and all I hear is...it must have been bad...it was already broke....I don't know what happened. She even managed to snap a blade on a buck knife in half! So far, she hasn't complained once (good for me) and it's lasted (good for the wallet). I've never used it, but it's definately tougher than it looks

Damn. Sorry to hear that. And thanks for your honesty.

Did you get yours when they first came out? If so.......do you think it's possible that this problem was taken care of already with the newer Razrs?

I have had mine since they 1st came out and no problems and so last x-mas I bought my wife a pink one and still one year later no problems.


My only complaint is the having the silver keypad it makes it a little difficult to text in a lot of light. Look at one and you will see what I mean.

Other wise it as been a great phone.

I've had mine for 4 months now and really have no problems with so far. My only real complaint would be that it gets dirty with finger prints really fast.

Yep - got it when it first came out, and upgraded to whatever latest firmware was around. Coming from SonyEricsson/Nokia I never did get used to the user interface...

Other than that, battery life is abysmal, and it died on me after 6 months... Have another SonyEricsson (M600i) now and also a Samsung (SGH-D900).

Both are doing great so far...

Well it sounds like the RAZR is just another one of those products where there are alot of good ones....... and alot of bad ones out there.

Kinda sounds like the R1.

Oh what did I just get myself into now.

Let the bashing begin.

Several of my guys got one when they first came out and hated them... every one of them got rid of it after a few months. Biggest issues were the lack of battery life and interface.

In general I never hear anything good about Motorola phones from long-term owners. I tried a SLVR for 3 months. The interface was ok. Nothing special - but the reception was horrid.

Switched to an LG phone and reception works like a champ.

I think a lot of your experience depends on your carrier and market place. Ask people around you. They're using the equipment on the same network as you...
