from the parents, they got a deal at a verizon retailer for a set of them so i get one. should be getting here today--what should i know?

seriously, i have no control over picking this and i could really care if it is the worst phone ever. i have had the same 'okay so it answers and recieves calls but that is it' piece of shit phone for like 2 1/2 years, so i am just excited to get one with a camera. i just want to know if there is anything i should know/be careful of/watch out for.

I don't know a single person other than you just now Keith that has ever liked the Razr phone. Crumbo, me, my friend Julie and at least 5-6 others I've talked to hate this thing. UGH.

The camera sucks and the earpiece is worse. You have to position the phone just so on your ear to hear anything, even with the volume on the highest it goes.

Get a bluetooth headset for driving. Just don't be one of those tools that walks around with the headset on all the time.

the only good thing about the razr is its size

the rest of it blows

It's not the service or the area, the phone just plain sucks.... and I don't care about the camera, I didn't buy it for that feature, I'm just letting her know it sucks since she mentioned it. So there. :hi

I will agree with this, but will also say that my previous Cingular phones were complete garbage.


If you're out in the country, it doesn't hold service well.


It has a good battery life. The camera is typical of a cell phone. You can't see the screen in direct sunlight.

Bluetooth is quite nice.


If you're coming from the Zach Morris era, you'll love the phone.

i have verizon, i live in manhattan (no car), and i don't have another camera so i was planning on using somewhat often as one. but i have no alternative camera, so it isn't a big deal if it sucks, really.

I think it's not that the RAZR is terrible, it's just that it's so damn expensive for a below average phone (ugly, outdated, is there a word for unergonomical, and that all before you have to turn it on). Anyway, just treat it like you would anything else that was worth a few hun and you'll be all good. It's usually the people who go ''OOOH FREE PHONE on a 3 year contract'' that wreck it.

I think it's terrible that phone companys still make you wait two years for a new phone. With the way technology is changing almost monthly (it seems like) we should have the option to get an upgrade sooner.

I know we can pay full price for a new phone whenever we want, but these phones aren't cheap.

i don't really care about upgrading, i don't need anything new or fancy at this point--just functional and small enough that i can put it in my pocket if i need too.

although i am totally pissed at the post office, it was supposed to get here yesterday. fuck you, overnight shipping. you do not fulfill your existence requirements.

Be sure and use it for a month or so and the look this thread up and let everyone know I was right, would you? ;)

I like it a lot, but I text message a fair amount, and the size of the screen and keys is really great for that. Antenna is okay; I get better reception than my last LG phone anyway.

The LG VX8600 from Verizon is awesome.

I know we can pay full price for a new phone whenever we want, but these phones aren't cheap.I agree. Especially with a locked CDMA provider. I end up just complaining about my phone until they offer me a new phone so they can keep my whining ass around.

My razr sucked. Camera stopped working 3 months into getting the phone, the speaker volume was too low and the backlight was shot.

I opted to get the new Samsung 509, great phone, not one problem yet

it's okay so far... i can't find a bunch of functions yet. and the standard ringtone selection is pretty slim--no crappy midi version of auld lang syne? wtf kind of phone is this?

i like that it is small, and it is much better for texting than my old one. i am really enjoying having a sweet camera with me when i see random ass weird stuff in the city. kind of awkward to hold and talk into, but i will probably figure out a better way of holding it eventually.

Katey, once you get more familiar with it, if you have or get a data cable to hook it to the computer, let me know. I have a great program for you to add your own mp3s, pictures, etc on it. :)

Nope, they do not. I drag mp3s directly to mine.
