Rival Issues

Reviewed on Tuesday April 3, 2012 by , Boston
Used a pair of these phones for 2 years now. Biggest issue is that you cannot download text messages, and the inbox fills up and stops messaging (not the outbox). You can e-mail them one at a time using minutes, but you cannot download them off the phone or put them on the memory card. Motorola phone tools won't even do it. I hand type them in to a text file to save them, very painful.
Other problem is touch screen is overly sensitive, ends up self-touching which puts you in disastrous modes like deleting everything, sending unfinished texts, hanging up on people. Really bad. Battery life is average. Keyboard layout is just weird for punctuation, all 2nd functions. Menus are a disaster, calendar reminder is 5 levels deep. Nice small phone for someone into texting.

k, so i love the layout of this phone and that alone realllllly makes me want to like it, but this phone is pure garbage. it freezes,doesnt send texts and isnt exactly reliable with recieving them either,the battery it terrible, barely vibrates when u recieve texts, drops calls, and my slider is pretty muching hanging on by a thread after only 5 months of use and good care. dont let others fool you saying the software upgrade did anything because it didn't , i got the upgrade and it doesnt stop it from freezing and it certainly didnt change the fact that this phone is a cheaply made piece of crap. SHAME ON U MOTOROLA!this phone isnt worth 200 dollars, if i knew what i know now motorola couldnt pay me to use this phone.
