Kewl phone, just enough features. It use to be that tracfone customer service was bad, but I had some problems with minutes, and a prior phone and they took care of the problems at no cost to me. If you email me at johns@webdoug.com for a referral *BEFORE* activating then Tracfone will give each of us 100 free minutes!

Long before the Razr V3's and the V600's the Motorola V60 was considered to be the first flagship phone of Motorola ... and it has lived up to its expectations. It's been there for quite some while with no changes and yet people still go for it over the newer ones in the market. The things I liked about it were its robustnes and material quality. Features are moderately ok and motorola can really work on its software features. The down side is the bland look of the phone itself. A black phone might just do the trick to get this model back in business. Less
