"What a joke Really!! Not Kidding"1.5 starson by Rollyn
Pros: Thin - Blah blah blah
Cons: Completely Resticted
Summary: I am sorry I don't know what people are talking about when they say this phone is great. I have a Moto V710 and it is more customizable than this thing. Yeah it is a thin phone but even the color for me is disappointing!
First off I love Verizon. Never really liked the choice of phones they have and thought that thigs were changing.
I wasn't elligable for an upgrade so I paid $419 + tax. Maybe that is why I am so upset but i dought it. First off they have the phone set up so that you have these horrible thick RED bars at the top and bottom of the phone so no matter what background you put it looks squished. Second you can only customize the down button. Yeah that is it! You have to leave both of the soft buttons as message and contacts. The up - left - right buttons are locked and are only for paying options: Vcast - Get it now - Open wave ( a way to look at my account ) nice feature but not necessary to lock it on my home screen.
I got the belt clip for it and it is a total pain to tak out. It almost falls out of my hands every time.
The camera has some nice features but doesn't make up for the non user freindly setup that the whole phone has. I am so so disappointed in this first Razor for Verizon. I am taking it back after having it for 6 hrs. Shouldn't I give it more of a chance? NO WAY. I am not going to pay what I paid for a pocket PC (samsung i730)and have a phone that is this restricted.
If you are a simple phone user and are going from a green back lit phone to your first color phone then have at it. You might be dazled enough by your upgrade that it might not matter to you.
If you are a seasoned cell phone buyer and are looking for an exceptable upgrade from the crappy available phones Verizon is famouse for then keep waiting for something else. This isn't what you are wanting or waiting for. You will be pi_s_d and it isn't worth the 20 min of your life activating it( another pain in the A_S )
I hope this helps. I have spent over 15 hrs between reading reviews, phone calls ect. and feel I have waisted all of it. I hope this save you some time. Because the review that have been placed must be for the Alltel version which I hear isn't resticted like this one.
^(^&#$^%^&^&^$^% %^*%^& $%*$&*% And that is how I feel about this phone and all the time I want to spen on it even though I have more to say. Because I have other things to do......
