Motorola RAZR V3t review

7.4/10 AVG.
RATING



7.4/10
Informr score
The Motorola RAZR V3t currently has an Informr score of 7.4 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 81 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The RAZR V3t is basically the same phone as the RAZR V3i, with a few exceptions. One, the V3t's music player does not use Apple's iTunes software. Two, the V3t is available in different colors than the silver V3i, what Motorola describes as "spun-metal" black and blue.

Also of note, the US-version of the V3t on T-Mobile is flashed with T-Mobile software and support for MyFaves.

I only purchased this phone because the package I was offered was reasonable. I have no problem with the company because when it was taken for service, I was greeted with a smile and treated well. I have had this phone for a year and the display broke. When it was replaced, the camera did not work correctly afterwards. It would not take pictures at all and the camera display was very broken up. The display broke a second time and I have decided to get rid of it ASAP. I was not impressed by the warranty not covering an obvious defect in the display continually brwaking. Less

Not a good Phone - Terrible Service from Motorola

Had the phone for three months and the display broke. Apparently that's not covered under warrenty because this is considered Physical Damage, even though there is no evidence of physical damage.

Good Phone, Rogers Customer Care Could Be Better

I've had this phone a year and a half and like it just fine. Camera is adequate for quick snaps and the video handy.

I've had this phone a year and a half and like it just fine. Camera is adequate for quick snaps and the video handy. I bought it principally because of the large display and numbers on the keypad which don't require I find my glasses to use it! I wish the design of the contacts/address book would combine the mobile number, email address and home phone in ONE ENTRY for each person instead of 3 separate entries which I find is cumbersome and time consuming to scroll thru looking for the particular number I'm looking for! In other words, for 30 contacts I have 90 darned entries to scroll through! I'm really quite annoyed and peeved that Rogers does not support updates for this phone halfway through my 3 year contract with them for this phone - and when they are still selling it to others!!! I understand their tactics of penalizing their customers with outrageous rates for using more minutes and not supporting updates when the phones warranty runs out are designed to manipulate their customers into upgrading to a newer phone or more expensive monthly package; however it makes me feel like an undervalued loyal customer of more than six years with two Rogers accounts! Love the phone, wish 'Rogers Care' actually did CARE! Less

It's alright for a basic phone

This is my second RAZR, I only got another one because there weren't many other options with Rogers that appealed to me at the time when upgrading.

This is my second RAZR, I only got another one because there weren't many other options with Rogers that appealed to me at the time when upgrading. PROS: slim phone for fitting in back pockets, good keys for texting fast, simple design, durable! reception is very loud and clear CONS: crappy camera and video, limited and ugly outdated interface, texting inbox full at 50 messages, sometimes freezes if you hit the buttons too fast, screen resolution It's not a bad phone... but it's nothing fancy. I've dropped it quite a few times and it's survived pretty good from what I've put it through. Battery life is not that great, I have to make sure I charge it every night. I don't really use the browsing feature or download stuff so I can't comment on that. I'm big on texting... my gripes about the RAZR is that the inbox is at the top of the menu and then the outbox near the bottom... so you have to hit a lot of buttons to get to either one. For some reason your inbox/outbox is full once you get to 50 messages and won't receive any more so you have to clear them all, which really annoys me cause I can't keep track of how many texts I've sent. Contact list is pretty old school... it doubles names if one person has 2 numbers, and for some reason when I want to skip down to a person's name, it won't go to certain letters, such as "S" (basically you hit the #7 to go Q -> R -> S but it stops at R) So that really annoys me! I think this phone is good for someone just looking to use it for calling and texting, but not much else. Rogers was going to charge me $200 to upgrade to this phone, which is NOT WORTH IT! I called customer relations and made my case so they gave it to me for $60, which is more representative of what you should pay for this phone. Less

I bought this version of the Razr and my family all bought the normal version. My phone did not work by the end of the first year, and all their's are still plugging along fine. First the earpiece stopped working so I had to talk on speakerphone if I wanted to talk at all (very embarrassing), then the screen started going black. This is by far the worst phone I've owned (every previous phone has lasted me 2 years without problems, all the way back to the bulky Nokia). There are much better investments than this phone - phones that do just as much, or more, and have a better track record. Don't waste your money! Less

All the good reviews are understandable given the quality of the calls and cute-ness / price ratio. I got this phone first it came out, and now it has been 19 months, the screen died all of a sudden. No warnings before hand, just sudden death. I never dropped this phone or abused it, just normal, even gentle use. I expect a longer life of a phone and also it would have been nice if i could get my contacts out of its internal memory. No more Motorola. Less

This phone worked great for the two weeks that I owned it. I loved just about everything about it - the large screen, the keypads, the music player, camera, speakerphone, video, being able to use mp3 files as ringtones, bluetooth - absolutely wonderful. After owning several Motorola phones and being dissatisfied with all of them except for one (the V360 - the best phone they ever made but they no longer make), the RAZR v3t restored my faith in Motorola products. Some people warned me about getting a RAZR; they said that it really was an inferior product and the battery life was poor. I ignored them, and didn't think that the battery life wasn't a big deal - after all, I don't use the cell that much and I'm one to charge the battery every other day. However, two weeks to the very DAY that I got the V3t, it just stopped working altogether! I opened the flip to change the ringtone to vibrate, and NOTHING showed up on the screen. It was completely BLANK! The keypad still lit up, but what good is a keypad attached to a cellphone that doesn't work??? Less than an hour before this happened, I made a phone call and it worked fine. I never dropped it, let it get wet, or had anything else happen to it. I thought maybe it was because the battery might have gone dead, but when I got home, I plugged it up and it still was the same - only the keypad lit up. There was nothing wrong with the battery. I shut it off, waited a day or two to see it if it was just a glitch, and held on to the hope that the phone would still work. Needless to say, it didn't. I've heard it's basically a crap shoot with RAZR phones - some people say they never had any problems with them, and others say that this was the worst phone they ever purchased. I'll have to join the latter group of people who hate this phone and I will never again buy another Motorola product. I will be getting a new phone any day now as a replacement, but you can rest assured it's not one that's made by this manufacturer. Less

Basic Cell Phone

from Amazon
Not a good media phone, the software is very primative and slow. This phone only stores about 100 messages between the inbox and outbox before filling up the message memory even though I'm using very little storage on the phone. IF you just want a phone with common features at a good price, this is for you.

I first got my V3t when my old one died on me when I was out of town. I had no choice but to buy a new phone, and loved the motorola. Minus the fact the picture quality sucks, but I loved the phone. But only 3 months later, the battery quality sucks, it can't seem to hold the charge long at all, and when I turn my phone on, it automatically connects me to T-Zones. (A web browser for TMobile). I turn off the phone, take out the battery, SIM card and my memory card and leave them out for about an hour. Put them back in, turn the phone on, hoping it reset itself, but it still does it. I can't get out of the browser long enough to grab phone numbers that I need to, and now TMobile is telling me that I'm SOL when it comes to getting the numbers, and that they need to send me a new one. They think my phone has a virus, and they've never heard of it happening before. UGH! So irritating!!! I hate this phone and regret ever buying it. Less
