Motorola V551 Phone (Cingular)
Amazing phone overall-Long,detailed review


I rarely post reviews,though I scour them before purchasing anything!I did extreme research before purchasing this phone,and before deciding on Cingular as my provider.Cingular,hands down,has the BEST coverage area,period!NO DROPPED CALLS,Kansas City.Customer service is not as bad as many reviews state.They have always answered EVERY question I have had,and dont hesitate to call them for anything.*I have learned,to go right to the ZERO option for direct customer service to get the most knowledgeable people. Ok,the phone......

I went from a digital Nokia,to this,my first flip phone.I wasnt sure if I would like the flip phone,but I LOVE it!I bought my daughter the Samsung x427m at the same time,and it too,is a great little phone,as far as battery life and signal strength(much better than mine!),but fewer features,no camera,not as customizable.Ordered the Motorola V180 for another line,also,great little phone with minimal features, though, more customizable than the Samsung. Again,did extensive research,even for the freebie phones. Will list cons of this v551 first:

CONS:
HORRIBLE battery life,so far!At first,no better than my old, worn out,Ni-Mh battery digital phone,but,improving slightly with each FULL recharge. However,you MUST follow the proper charging routine.Charge it FULLY before doing ANYTHING on it!Then,use it until DEAD!Do NOT charge it again,if even a bar left,wait until it dies!Do this process several times to build up the battery. Turn off any features you are not using or don't need,including bluetooth,key tones,decrease lighting to minimum or off,disable screen saver,etc,and this will save a lot of battery power.I have yet to purchase and try the Bluetooth features,so I have no opinion of how much battery usage this takes. I did purchase a backup battery, cradle charger,extra travel charger,and car charger!All extremely cheap on Amazon!I called Motorola an researched the internet,and as of yet,does not seem to be a more powerful battery(longer life) than what comes with it.*edited to note,I sent Amazon an email regarding my disappointment in the battery life, wondering if it is faulty,they PROMTLY,without question,sent me a NEW phone in two days!However,even with new phone,you still get maybe 3.5 hour talk time,and less than 20 hours standby if not using phone at all!Maddening!Do not want to play battery switch out every few hours.Rated at 4-7 hours TALK time and TEN DAYS standby! Contacted Motorola,they said to go to local store and have them check it,and gave me a bunch of reasons why it is poor(all my fault) from poor signal strength to features I have phone set at(none!).Why dont they acknowledge it is a problem!Everyone complains about it!I have every feature OFF,currently do not use internet,or play games,just make calls.I love the phone otherwise,there is something I dislike about all the other flip phones for Cingular,so do I stay with this,that is the question.Hoping it improves over time with recharging cycles.

Manual--If this is your first cell phone,or you are not very good at figuring things out on your own(or just plain easily frustrated without instructions),better go with another brand,as this one will be too complicated and there is no support in the manual.It is extremely vague! I have learned my phone through playing with it,writing down memos of places I found certain features(since it is hard to remember where I saw what once I leave the menu on the phone),and researching forum boards where I learned lots of tricks and shortcuts!

When screen shuts off,it goes black.Not dim,but black,so you have to hit a button to get it to come back on,which every button takes you somewhere,so you have to hit back to get to main page.Wishing it was at least dim.

No one-touch clear calls list option.Have to go into Recent,then it is in two categories, received and dialed,and from there you have to menu, then choose delete all.I miss some very simple one touch features my Nokia had and that the Samsung has.However,the shortcuts option is very handy once you figure it out!On any function you want a one touch,press and hold the menu key,then assign a hot key,then to access it,hit menu then that hot key you assigned.

Ringtones/Wallpaper/Games:Total marketing ploy to give you bare NOTHING,so you HAVE to purchase all this stuff from Cingular,and not only pay for the ringtone or game or wallpaper,but also the transmission data usage. The game that comes with it,demo!Ends after a minute.

One touch internet button, way too easy to hit!*edited to note, reviewer "krav" gave solution for this, thank you!!!*You can turn off internet through Cingular(call cust service for block).

Petty,but when typing a text message,if you accidentally(or purposely because someone walks up)exit the screen you are typing,and you go back,it is blank and you have to start over,very very frustrating when you hit arrow,and touch stop key instead!With my Nokia,it kept the typing until I sent it,or cleared it.Taking me a bit to get used to the key placement,opposite of my Nokia as to what selects and exits(back),and deletes.

Pros:
Totally customizable!You CAN change nearly everything to your liking!The button on the side by the volume button,the four navagation keys as well as the two top right and left buttons,all can be made shortcuts to whatever you want.(Settings-Personalize-Home Screen-Home Keys-Change each key to option you want).Anywhere you are,you can hit the menu(middle dot,or the 3bar key at top middle)to get a list of options,many not found any other way. From audio,you can change each ring style(detail) to make each sound the tone you want,turn on or off keytones,different sounds for each alert,etc,all your preferance.Also,you DONT have to hit the volume button on side multiple times to shut it off making noisy beeps.If phone is ringing,and you do NOT want it to ring,just hit vol button on side once,it silences the ring.If you want to change ring style options, hit either up or down volume(with phone closed),then use button below that on side,to scroll through ring styles(LOUD to SILENT to VIBRATE,etc),then hit volume key again to show time.One beep to make phone silent if going into meeting or quiet setting and need to silence phone.If you keep hitting down button on volume,it will go to vibrate on zero.Takes some playing around to find all the neat features this packed phone has and make it YOUR way!Middle button of navigation keys,acts also as an "enter", or "select" key.

Sound-CRYSTAL CLEAR,and plenty loud for my poor hearing!Everyone else is raving at how great and CLEAR I sound on this phone!Better than previous phone,better than any of my home phones!Even the earpiece that came with the accessory kit(order ALL accessories from Amazon,cheaper than anywhere!) is great!The speakerphone is awesome!Loud,clear,I can set it down on desk and carry on conversation perfectly from both ends.

Button on right side of phone,says Voice Records when you hit it,however,nifty little feature,records 20 second voice,for little memos to yourself when away from pen and paper, or to voice memo driving directions!

Camera-for a phone.......incredible!!!I have a digital camera,so no need for anything on the phone,but,what a nice bonus feature,and its good too!Not to mention video!I can see many times in the future when it might be nice to have a quick instant picture,maybe of a landmark or road sign to find my way back home, or take a picture of something I am shopping for, to mull over at home, etc.

Phonebook-Lots of options,if you save it to phone,and not SIM card,SIM card limits features and display(like cant put the picture ID by name when saved to SIM). However,when time to get another phone someday, take the time to go through addy book and save to SIM before getting new phone so you can just transfer the card. You CAN have mulitple numbers under ONE NAME! (Enter phonebook-hit 3bar menu button(top middle)-Setup-View by:List,Sort by:Name,View:Primary Contact.Now all numbers and email,etc,will be under the one name,just highlight that name,use right and left arrows to scroll through numbers,or choose VIEW to scroll though).

Keypad, I love!I had the raised buttons on previous phones,and I frequently text message, and used email on the internet, and my thumb would get sore hitting those raised buttons. I am getting better at hitting the numbers without looking when entering command promts on a call. Keys larger than the other two phones I just bought.

Screen is bright(I dimmed mine even to conserve battery!),and beautiful, also large, larger than the other two phones I bought!
Phone is great quality,solid,sturdy,nice feel,heavy enough to have substance,not cheap feeling at all.Flip cover seems strong. Very nice phone,looks expensive.

All in all, amazing phone!More expensive phones,had far less features. Phone not user friendly interface initially until you take the time to get to know your way around. Battery life worst of ANY phone ever owned!Even my cordless home phones are better!

Great phone! Great price!(cheaper here than anywhere).Four stars because of LOUSY manual, and poor battery life for this style and price of phone.

Great phone


Switched from Nokia (ATT); thought it would be hard to beat Nokia's ease of use; but this phone fits the bill. Great features, ease of use, everything...especially speaker phone which lg vx7000 does not have. Only minor downside; alarm works only if phone on; our Nokia phones always worked with them off. Also, battery life seems short, but expected with all the features. Bought 4 for the family with the great promotions from Verizon and we're all very happy...was very worried after having Nokia for over 15 years!
You won't regret it; get it now w/all the great deals; the new 8000 model not coming out till Jan. and while it has speaker phone and video; the price and probably size will be much more heftier.

not bad not bad.


took more then 3 weeks for amazon to get the phone to me,

I like the phone, but what is the software that you guys below me are talking about?

mine didn't come with no softwares.. and also my screen looks kind of "glaring"

and when I look at the right side of the screen on the right, it is completely dark, and when I look at the far left side of the screen on the left... it is totally bright... is there a problem with my phone? or what?

Choose another model


I have owned this phone for exactly one year, and here is my report. About six months ago horizontal white lines began to appear on the LCD screen and, over time, the problem began to get worse and worse. Exactly one week ago I turned off my phone and allowed it to charge overnight. In the morning I turned the phone back on and discovered that I could no longer see anything on the internal display - it had whited out.

This is a very common problem with this Samsung model and it is enough reason to stay away from it. Testimonies from other reviewers on this site, and others, corroborate this, but if you still want to take a chance on this model then you should be aware of some other potential problems that this phone suffers from.

When you view a complete log of all sent and received calls whenever you press the Send button, scanning through them is a real hassle. Pressing a key once often cycles through three entries, and it's annoying when you want to make a call to a phone number in your log but the phone keeps overshooting it. Very buggy, not to mention excruciatingly annoying.

Also, a couple months ago all of the address book entries that were stored on my phone got deleted. I have no idea what could have caused this, but it apparently is another common problem with this model.

The supplied ringtones that Samsung offers on this phone are nothing short of pathetic. It seems every ringtone that was programmed into this phone was meant for teeny boppers or little kids. There are no standard ringers on this phone and because of this I had my phone on vibrate all the time when I was out and about.

However, if the ringtones are your cup of tea you cannot assign them to individual contacts. The only way you can do this is if you make your contact part of a group in your phonebook. Why Samsung would make it so that you can assign ringtones to groups, and not individual address book entries, is a mystery.

When you close up the phone to end a call, the phone still stays on the line for well over a second. This means that if somebody were to say, "wait, I forgot to tell you something" it leaves them with the impression that you just hung up on them.

This was a very disappointing offering by Samsung, and I'm quite surprised that they haven't issued a recall of this model due to its host of defects, and I'm equally surprised that T-Mobile continues to sell this phone with their service.

You would be better suited with another model.

Good phone, terrible Verizon service


This phone has adequate features, good battery life, and is easy to use and compact. Verizon's cell coverage has been good. However, my experience signing up and dealing with Verizon was astoundingly bad.

It took ten days of wrangling with the retailer, Verizon's store, Verizon's phone support, and Verizon's email support to get my phone activated and working, and I saw amazing incompetence at every stage. My attempt to port my old phone number to the new phone was futile, despite their assurances that it was easy, and I ended up having to change numbers. After the phone was working, it took another ordeal to access my account online.

What was especially infuriating is that Verizon employees were rude and completely unapologetic, and refused to make any compensatory gesture (free airtime, a car charger, etc.) to make up for my ordeal. On the contrary, they demanded a second activation fee to restart the activation, which failed again. After I'd been standing around the Verizon store for two hours as they tried to figure out how to activate my phone, an employee said to me "I'm off now and I just want to go home." Verizon's company slogan is, of course, "We never stop working for you." It took some restraint to keep from re-enacting a scene from "The Sopranos".

Adequate phone


I've had this phone for three months, directly from an ATT Wireless store. At the time I had to pay $50 with instant rebate, whereas Amazon I think had it for $50 after mail in rebate. I bought it because it was a decent flip phone with a color screen, and I did not feel like paying $100 and over for a similar phone with better features. Since those same phones are much cheaper now, if I were to do it all over again right now I would spring for a better phone rather than settling for this. Pros:
-Construction feels solid enough to me, I have no worries that any buttons, antenna, faceplate, whatever will break from normal use. I've dropped it once (to my dismay), and the front face has a couple scratches on it.
-Screen is large.
-Phone is long when opened. I don't like the idea of talking on a phone when it barely extends past my ear, like it's some children's toy. When folded it is thinner than some phones, but slightly thicker than others, but it is at least small enough to fit into that little third pocket in my jeans. Convenient!
-Buttons depress nicely. I don't have to wonder if I pressed it hard enough for it to register.
-GSM features are nice if you use them. I don't really use them, but ATT has a horrible selection of TDMA phones, if that's your thing. (Hint: ATT doesn't really have a good selection of cell phones in general. Way to go, ATT.)
-Voice dialing comes in handy Though I did drop it once, most of these problems did not occur any time near the fall. The phone just has problems. Get a different phone. Try not to use ATT.

PCS Phone palmOne Treo 600 (Sprint)
Fantastic Smartphone


This product is leaps and bounds better than the Treo 300. When many advocoates of the Treo 300 said that it was the best smartphone on the market, I failed to see the hype. I ended up buying the Samsung i-330 because I thought it was comparable to the Treo in function, but excelled in form factor (the hardware design). The Treo 300 didn't feel like a phone.This edition to the Treo line truly propels the gadget into a category that has no other competitor.Pros: -Fantastic integration with Palm OS
-Excellent processer that allows you to take advantage of the Spring 3G network. Web surfing is actually fun on this phone. In the older Treo and Samsung phones, the web was often slow and not worth using. Turns out that the problem was not with the service but with the puny processors that were in early smartphone devices.-Sharp Screen with vivid colors. Cons:
-Built in battery makes it a pain for road warriors. Don't know why its so hard to build Treos with batteries that can be swapped out.-The highly marketing domed shaped keyboard isn't that wonderful. It is still easier to use a blackberry's keyboard.-No Voice dial capability. The exclusion of this eludes me. Even base model phones now come with voice dial capabilities. Why not include it?
Product features:
Treo 600 combines a full-featured mobile phone and Palm OS organizer with wireless applications like email, text messaging, web browsing and even a digital camera
QWERTY keyboard makes entering text and accessing information fast and familiar-perfect for messaging and a must have for email
Built-in color web browser, Blazer, gives you fast access to nearly all the sites on the web-not just the ones optimized for mobile devices
Take a picture or share images with others via email-you can even attach a photo to a phone number so you can see exactly who's calling with Picture Caller ID
Because Treo 600 runs the popular Palm OS, there are thousands of applications you can download and use-like MP3 players, etc.

Great phone for people who don't use phones


Me and my wife have used this phone service over the last year and it's been great. We estimate it only costs us about $6 a month because we hardly use up the minutes. We only buy minutes at the end of our 3 months. If you talk on the phone a lot though I would recommend a contract.

One other good thing about them is they only charge $0.10 a minute after the first five minutes. This does not depend on the number of minutes you buy up front.

This phone was great when we went from Dallas to Vegas. It costs us little to use even though we left our primary area code. We made all kinds of long distance calls and it cost little more than $15.

If I could change anything about this service I would ask they grow up a little bit. MTV? Who cares? Give me news and weather virgin mobile! Adults use this phone too! I would pay the $.10 for the extra service of checking weather and news. We hardly use our minutes.

My other question is. Do teens like looking at creepy pictures of other teens on the virgin mobile web site? Do we need to waste bandwidth on that when checking my bill?

Another thing I would change is that yahoo mobile consider virgin a service, this way I could get text message alerts sent to it from yahoo.
