"The worst smart phone you will ever buy"0.5 starson by clandgh
Pros: large crisp screen
It looks good
It'll keep one of your hands toasty warm this winter
Cons: Poorly written instruction manual.
Motorola doesn't provide a program to sync with, like its other android phones do
You can't buy an extra battery yet
Motorola put a low capacity battery in the phone
2gb micro SD card is insufficient
Battery cover dosn't
Summary: We bought this phone, based in part, on the positive reviews on CNet. I just wanted to set the record straight about it. If you buy this phone, it will be the last phone you will ever buy from Motorola...because after struggling to use this phone for its intended purpose, you will never want to buy another Motorola product. We thought the problems were us needing to update our headsets, needing to learn the phone, and that any OS software issues would quickly be corrected by Motorola. That is not the case. It's a beautiful looking device, but it is virtually useless for someone who uses bluetooth and needs a reliable phone.Everything I've listed are known issues with this phone. I found out after going to Motorola forums and reading the same problems over and over that we are having. Motorola isn't doing anything to correct the OS issues.

Bluetooth doesn't work If you plug it into household current, it stays connected. Otherwise, it disconnects.
The phone reboots and often shuts down for no reason. You don't know it until you go to use it.
The battery cover doesn't click into place and is always slipping off allowing the battery to fall out.
But then, the screen freezes pretty often so you have to remove the battery anyway. Guess it was designed for the battery to keep falling out to save you the trouble.
The 3G service is almost as slow as dialup. I had Sprint in the past, and it was fast. So why is the 3G on this phone so slow? Same location. Only thing different is the phone and Virgin Mobile.
The Navigator, Compass, and GPS do not work.
If you need a reliable phone, this one sure isn't it
Updated on Oct 4, 2011I intended to say:
Bluetooth doesn't work properly. The phone will only stay connected to your bluetooth device as long as the Triumph is plugged into household current. Within a couple of minutes of switching to battery, it disconnects. The symbol on the phone indicates it is still connected..but it isn't. So if you are a bluetooth user like I am, this phone is useless. When you take the call by holding the phone to your ear, half the time it disconnects the call from the "ear touch."
