IM IN UR XMAZ / GETTING A RAZR

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.

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.

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.

Well I'm happy you like the POS phone Keith. I truly am. But it still sucks.

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I think it's not that the RAZR is terrible, it's just that it's so damn expensive for a below average phone (ugly, outdated, is there a word for unergonomical, and that all before you have to turn it on).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?
