THIS PHONE IS BAD

Reviewed by rowan from UK on 20th Dec 2007
ive had this phone for almost six years and considering how old the phone is, it has done remarkably well. the phone itself isnt great compared with many of the phones today, but it is one of the first colour phones and is one up rfom Nokia phones with snake. It can be tempremental at times, but fulfils the basic criteria for a phone, i.e being able to ring someone (most of the time) so its not all that bad.

When i first got this phone, i thought it would be great, because it was suitable for a first-time user for phones, and would be a good 2nd phone because my other phone is locked to orange. despite the fact that it didnt have bluetooth, and you couldnt receive MMS messages, it was a good basic phone. However, the phone couldnt stand against long phonecalls. the battery ran out after two-hours on the phone, which was a nightmare, and the phone kept on going slow. if you are looking to a basic phone, i suggest to all mobile users to select nokia models, as they are easier to use and has a longer battery life. i know quite a bit about mobile phones, so i know what i am talking about.

I have had this phone for a few months and I must say it is alright. I love the style (even though it is old!) I don't like the polyphonic ringtones that much (I suppose they are alright as well) and I like using the MotoMixer, Datebook, and using the WAP. I'd go for this phone if I were you because it is possible to buy it in the shops but the thing that lets it down is the battery life. I always end up charging my phone every weekend. But on the other hand, it's ok, so if you want this phone, GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :_)

Also they say it has a great composer its RUBBISH. Another thing is that it is annoying cause mines gone spased up and keeps phoning people even when its just lying on the side with nothing touching it so it cant be me leaning on it that does this. Its a good phone if your planning to have it as your first phone but not for long because its lame. anyway i dont know why anyone would want to buy it anyway ITS OUT OF DATE!!!!!!

Hi, There are so many phones out here today thats its impossible to compare each one with another of the same make or even another of a different make. In the ends it depends on getting the most for what money you are willing to spend on one, or what services there are available for each make in one's country. Each phone I have had - I have been satisfied with and one of those phones was The Motorola c350 which I still have has a back up. The phone is really a good phone for the price. I think it's different in its color and design and you can find great covers for it too. Its work pretty fast when you are waiting for hellomoto to open etc. One feature I like with this phone and which is unique compare with the nokias I have had- from nokia 3210 too 7150= is its 'send to many' feature which I have had some fun with he he. I haven't seen that with any nokia phone so far.. I. e. Nokia's 'send to many' feature goes one at at time while Motorola just takes one click after checking off all the contacts you want your message to go to. I find that feature time saving. In fact its one of the reason I have held on to my phone and it is is good condition. I use it for times when a camera phone isn't alllowed. I was also told that Motorola is a mobile that is best to chose if you travel alot , only one thing that made me move to a Nokia was that Nokia had more advice shops and services available and I couldnt find any nice pictures for it. Still, its main functions are very good.

Reviewed by Andy from UK on 27th Oct 2004
I've always regretted buying this phone and now after just 18 months of very modest use it's died. The menus are the worst I've ever seen and although the graphics look pretty most of them serve no useful purpose. Both the supplied ringtones and the ones on the hellomoto website are quite embarrassing (I hope I never go to the club where their DJ works) though maybe someone somewhere has written some decent ones by now. Good things about it: looks quite good, not a bad range of features. Bad things: APPALLING, indecipherable menu structure - takes 10-12 keystrokes to do what I did in 1-2 on my old Sony. Admittedly mine came with Virgin's additions grafted onto it which seem to make it more confusing. Poor battery life (typically 36 hours. Motorola claimed this was because of it having to keep seeking the network in poor reception areas - reception seems to be another downfall - but I've never had more than 48 hours even with perfect reception). Clock loses time if you leave it uncharged for more than a few hours - I left it for a week once and the time advanced less than a day, and I defy anyone to find the menu option where you reset it straight off. Small keys, a couple of which became sticky after just a few months. Infuriating texting - the punctuation symbols I'm most likely to use all seem to be 12-15 keystrokes down the list for the "1" key. Though the predictive texting became much easier once I realised it had shipped with German as the default langu age. Overall: "it seemed like a good idea at the time".

I just got the motorola c350 and I believe it is an o.k. phone. I mean what do you expect it is not the expensive. The screen is small and the color are not all that but still who cares, all these people are winers and expect too much. If they wanted a real phone they should have payed a real phone price. All these people want a little too much, also this phone is not the difficult to use once you have had a motorola before, but if you have had a nokia it is totally different. If you do not have a lot of money and are a teenager and want a stylish small lightweight phone then get. But if you really want a solid buiilt phone with all the latest feature spend the money and buy a nokia or more expensive motorola.

Not only that but the problem with the first phone was just the battery life, and now that they have improved the battery life made the phone in color and T-mobile(wireless provider) is replacing my old one due to battery life now I have decied to take it and not buy a nokia. Even though nokias definetly have a certain well-built feel to them I prefer my phone to be light and small and I do not mind the plasticky fell because i buy I new phone every year anyway when my contracts ends. And also everybody and their mother has a nokia so I prefer to buy some thing different.

I think that The motorla c350 is gr8 if you are looking for a small compact little phone which has lots of style! The only bad point I can think of is that the buttons are really small and are not very good if you have large fingers. I got mine when they first came out in about July 2003, Since then I take it everywhere with me because it is so good to use. I luv downloading ringtones and wallpapers on the wap service because it is so easy to use. I also think the games are brill but I wish there aws a facillity so you could download games. Shame!

I got the phone 'cos' I thought it looked and felt great, but in action the phone messed up. The battery to be exact. After about a month of usage, I realized I couldn't depend on the battery power for a whole day without it running out on me. I am just an average phone user, maybe about four to five calls a day of not more than three minutes average. Phone design is good, weight is great but battery power is a disaster.

Where to start? Battery life could be better - but then if I could leave all the features alone I reckon it would last a lot longer. Not loud enough, but depends where you're listening to it! Fiddly to text - YES! Not so much the predictive text (which I've got the hang of now), it's the key size. Not a phone for serial texters perhaps? Having ggot all that out of the way. It's a fun phone - only two base tracks on the MotoMixer - but go online to the Motorola site and access a lot more for free (just a WAP call to download). There's a lot of features there for a small price. It's not the fastest of phones, but for the price be willing to put up with that. Virgin network, who I'm with, seem to be slow anyway compared with O2 who I used to be with. Can't get the voice dial to work - guess that's an operator problem , not a phone fault. But I like it. The menu system is fine, don't understand the complaints - but then, I've never owned a Nokia though my daughter has (don't unde rstand their popularity - fussy articles!). Modem capability with the PC220 software a big bonus for the price.

Bit of a mixed reception for this one from what I've read here. It's not perfect - not very loud, the (16 voice) ringtones are very tinny compared with my daughter's (40 voice) Samsung A800, which has a lovely melodious sound, the vibrate alert isn't all that strong, the texting fiddly with the small slippery keys. But hey... the colours are good, the wallpaper, animation and download ability are great. The games are fun - incidentally, I think it's because the games are addictive that the battery doesn't last very long!! I find I'm always fiddling with the phone - either SMS, games or playing with the Motomixer so not surprising that the tiny battery soon runs out of juice. I'm waiting for the data suite software to arrive which will allow me to edit and download wallpaper, animations, music etc without using WAP, and best of all with the software, I'll be able to use the phone as a modem for my laptop when I'm out and about - not bad for a budget buy. Think I'll still hang on to my old handsets for texting though - don't laugh, a Philips C12 and Siemens A36, both indestructible little gems, even though they're so basic. Go on - buy one, you know you want to!

I got the phone in September 2003 and at the time it was great! It had color, polyphonic ringtones and it was tiny! But after christmas i started looking at my friends phones (samsungs n nokias) and they have even better features! Downloadable stuff at the push of a button and they have a computer style layout. The range of backgrounds on this phone r poor and theres about 50 faces which look stupid. Not enough moving graphics. The EMS is good and so is the moto mixer, but i cant seem to find websites with motorola composer tones ANYWHERE! At the moment the only thing i'm happy about it is the size, the fact you can change the covers, and that it Has colour. Why dont motorola invent a camera attachment for this fone because if u set ur theme 2 grafiti and look at the screensaver, it seems capable to view actual pictures, and talking of themes, there should be a lot more instead of downloading them.

I have mixed feelings about this phone. Bought it before Christmas. And in the Value for Money stakes on PAYG it was hard to beat at the time. Nice range of polyphonic tones and the Motomixer is a nice touch, even though I'd like more than 2 base tracks to play around with. Still, I've got a half decent drumbeat ringtone tone and a separate piano one that I mixed. And I didn't waste 6 on something that sounded like it was mixed by somebody even more tone-deaf than me. I like the compact little handset, but I reckon they've been a bit stingy with the screen space, especially with the 'ph book' and 'messages' commands taking up valueable space. And it's a bit of a scrollathon to do more than a 2-lined text message or some WAP browsing. I think the newer C450 has a slightly bigger screen as well as downloadable Java applications. Also on the minus side, the navigation around the menus is poor. Took me ages to learn how to launch a WAP session. If anyone could tell me how to do a quick lock of the phone without going through a zillion menus to do it, I would be eternally grateful. There must be a shortcut, but try telling the phone manual writers that. Here's a couple of tips to stop you all going crazy: to combat the low ringing volume (even when set to max), you have to set the ring style to ring and vibrate. Problem is, the vibrate kicks in way, way before the ringtone. To stop the noisy key tones, go to ring styles, change ring detail and scroll down to key volume to alter it. To switch off the music when you turn the phone on/off, keep pressing the left arrow key until you get to vibrate or silent. But remember to switch it up again to get the ring/vibrate mode up when you need to take calls in noisy environments, cos you'll never hear that ringtone. My Nokia and Siemens-owning mates admire the C350's nice range of backgrounds and colour schemes, but as I've learnt with phones, there's more to mobile life than a pretty face. So, to recap, I do n't hate this phone by any means, but I'm so glad I haven't got this on contract. I'm sure I'll be trading it in for a better and more user friendly model (probably a colour Nokia or Siemens) before too long. Or wait that bit longer until more 1 mega pixel camera-phones appear on the UK market.

The processor is really slow and not to mention poor reception at areas which are suppose to have good reception. My advice to y'all is to just go NOKIA. NOKIA phones are userfriendly and from my experience, once you use a nokia this makes this piece of junk something you'ld throw in the trash once you start realising it's just a beauty clothed in junk.

The motorola C350 from the my experience and reviews i've received is that the C350 is a piece of junk. Whilst it might look good, from the box, in reality it is really an ugly duckling. The phone has such a major plastiky feel to it that it almost seems fragile and likely to break if you drop it a few times. Not the mention, due to the fact that it's a multimedia phone with colours and all, all the more such a complicated piece of equipment with tons of features will spoil easily in such a flimsy casing. MMS phones are good, however only if the processor of the phone can handle the functions to function at an appropriate speed. Motorola has tried to create a highly featured budget phone, resulting with an overloaded phone without a proper processor to handle such efficiently. Try it for yourself and you'll see what i'm talkin about. Till then, see ya and happy takin mates.... daniel the ma

What are you all harping on about? The texting is much better on this than on a Nokia (I had one for 3 years). You just need to learn how to do it (piece of @%&$^). I have had my Moto since it first came out. It's a cheap phone but looks really smart. However I do agree about the covers. I bought a red one as I don't like the stupid C350 on the original cover and is now in a drawer covered in scratches. I would have liked an alarm clock, but hey, 70 quid and all the other features. I sticking with Motorolla from now on!

The phone had its advantages and its disadvantags. The phone was small and light with a reasonable battery life without recharge. The colour screen was quite flashy and it had a few good preset ringtones. I enjoyed the MOTOMIXER but the fact that you only had 2 base tracks made it abit boring after a while. The alarm clock was quite a good polish and I think MOTO GP had very good graphics. The phone is FLIMSY, which is the main point,every time I drop it, even just a few inches of the floor it automaticly switches of for some reason. It is VERY PLASTICY and looks like it costs 10p for every case to be built. The screen is extremly vunerable to scatches so I had to spend another 10 on a phone case. Astrosmash and Snoods are BAD and I think that the games should have soundtrack to them, Beep Beep is like putting cow pat into perfect trifle. The speed of the WAP services is absolutly appaling, and so you get charged something like a FIVER for about 1 page that you have read. I did enjoy the fact that you could make your own monophonic ringtone I made a lot of themes of popular films and TV shows. The wallpapers and screensavers are very rusty and there are a very bad choice of them. Over all I'd reccomend this phone for young teenagers without alot of savings but the quality of the phone is not so good as alot of NOKIAS that I've seen. I think that you could of put a camera in that one Motorola. YOU HAVE PRODUCED A CHEAP FLIMSY PHONE!!

Don't do what I did and spend too much time being impressed with the specs/features for the money and not enough time reading reviews such as this. I purchased one thinking it had such nice specs for the price, but that soon all came to an end. I wasn't already attending anger management classes like some other guy posted, but I'm almost at the stage now with this phone that I think I need to go!!! arfgh!!! This phone really p*sses me off completely. But funnily enough, I'm certain its already off the market in Australia. My girlfriend and I bought this phone in the space of about 3 months and not long after that they have disappeared from all shops! And we bought the phone just when it was released. Problems are: - - Extremely slow response, its seriously under powered with its processor chip. You can finish a game of cards before the phone has responded to whatever you pressed. This I think was the most frustrating thing, the shocking response and lag. I like to be on the ball and think quickly, and this phone can't keep up with how quickly I like to press the buttons and quickly find my info or ring people etc. This leads to you waiting around for the piece of technology all day long, frustrating. - SMS is a pain, over complicated, not as nice as Nokia predict-text. - Why should I need to go through like 5 confirmation stages to send a messages once I've typed it. "Yes send", "finished", "please send", "Are you sure?", "really sure?", "ok" etc. ridiculous programmers at motorola who thought this was user friendly? shame on you. - Why did they bother putting those dud games on there, the style of games would be fun if the processor could handle it. You press the keys and wait patiently for the phone to respond, which results in bad lag and you always get killed by the aliens. Its a rort so the phone always wins. - There is an alarm, but its called "datebook" and its the most cryptic anti-userfriendly thing I've ever been punished with using. Even after you select today's date, and then set the time, it has an error and tells you "PLEASE SELECT A FUTURE DATE". So you have to select today's date again. Then say you have the "datebook" alarm set for 7am tomorrow morning but you turn the phone off deliberately because it was annoying you. Then at 5pm the next day you turn it back on, as soon as you turn it on, it screams the alarm in your face because its logic says "5pm is after 7am, and I haven't sounded the alarm yet, so I will just play the alarm now". seriously flawed logic. - I also got the intermittent beeps that just stayed on when the phone was new. I also had to remove the battery for it to shuddap. Some serious bug there. - It has some stupid bit called "my numbers" which is like a text file. Once you put numbers in there you can't do anything with them, why is this separate and less functional than the main phonebook!? - The volume is very poor. I can never hear it ring when I have a nice polyphonic ringtone selected, I need to change it to both vibrate and some piercing ringtone so that I know its ringing. And the vibrate is weak too. - The battery doesn't last very long at all now either. - Dust under the screen was yes a terrible problem!!! Within 1 week from brand new, it was covered with dust that you couldn't easily clean out. So I took it apart for a clean out, but soon enough its back. I mean, did any idiots from motorola actually ever test this junk heap? No way, its had to real usability testing, they just made it and said "lets make money now, get it out in the shops!" On the bright side, its compact, very nice size but buttons are too small and plasticy, and it seemed pretty strong until I damaged it in fits of rage. Its feature packed for the money, but its just tricks to get you to buy, yes it is feature packed, but nothing had been properly tested, plenty of software bugs and speed issues. As a result, once I threw my C350 out of my garage onto the pavement which scratched it all. Then another time I squeezed the hell out of it which permanently put a pile of red pixels on my screen, so now I cannot read everything. And squeezing it also broke the microphone, people can't hear me now. So its a new phone for sure.. Now Motorola will never take my phone back because its scratched etc, but really its their fault. This is corporate bullying, design and make money from a pile of junk, people damage it on purpose, then they lose their money: stupid me. I to am going back to a simple clunky NOKIA. NOKIA seem to have done so much more user-friendliness design and consideration with the phones, buttons and menus. OH AND THE BIGGEST problem how could I forget. You know how its some legal requirement that mobile phones now have to let you ring out emergency (911 in US, 000 in Australia) even while the keypad is locked? Well on every other phone it will only register that you've dialed 000 after the keypress of the third zero. On this phone, even with the keypad locked, if you bump 9 or 0 or 1, it will beep while in your pocket. So 0-0-0 will go "beep beep beep" and then wait for you to press "CALL". On a smart NOKIA it won't beep until after you've gone 000. So the result, is that I walk around all day with the phone in my pocket locked, it beeps all the time and I go "oh did I forget to lock my keypad, am I accidentally ringing up people and costing me money now?" BUt no, it beeps continuously even while locked, so you will never know will you. How annoying you idiots. - The colour screen is very very hard to read without the backlight. So I can never look at the phone and go "what's the time?" I Have to unlock it, then that makes the backlight come up, then you can read it. I hate this phone so much, that I am prepared to keep paying it off for the remainder of my contract and pay for a new phone just to not be angry any more.

I purchased this phone for xmas. Spent a couple of day programming it through the usb port. Software and drivers found easily on google. you can download mid files from anywhare on the net then upload them to the phone. Very cool. Grab a gif file off the net and just upload to phone. Also you can create your own tones and graphics with any software and upload direct to phone. This saves an absoloute fortune in call charges as there is no need to download through expensive call charges. I also managed to change the games on the phone. Hello MOTO for sure for me.....

First of all the buttons are too small, and if you are a frequent sms'er then the buttons tend not to always function as intended. Second, the battery life after 6 months are appalling, I have to recharge the phone every day! Third, the colour screen is poor in comparison to other phones. Fourth, the menu speeds are quite slow. Fifth, if the message memory is full, eg you are using the Outbox and Quick Notes, it only informs you the memory is full after you have typed th message and is ready to send it. However the MyMenu, your own menu system, is quite useful. Overall though, I would not recommend the phone at all.

But they should have made the ring volume louder. A nice package and not a mistake but I must warn if you are pig headed and to impatient to learn you won't enjoy it.

The buttons are a little awkward and the display is very dark when not illuminated - but then all phones are... I don't think it's the best phone you can buy, but I don't think it's as bad as other reviews are suggesting. Sure, it took me two days to work out how to type upper case letters (was it necessary to make it that awkward, Motorola?) It took me one day to get the cover off (in contrast to another reviewer who said theirs' kept falling off). Also, the ringing volume is quite low even on it's loudest settings. The menu isn't that easy to navigate but after a while you get used to it. For 80.00 it's ok if you just want a phone. If you want a phone that does everything - you're probably still a teenager and oh, if only life was so simple that a good phone meant everything. It's fine once you get used to it.

I've had the C350 for about 2 months now and as far as I am concerned it is an OK phone. I've owned Nokias up to now, but they always seem to have problems with the screen and need you to keep pressing it to see the display. So thought i'd go for the C350. I must say i am impressed with its features for the price. I don't find texting too bad, once you get used to it, but then i don't spend all day texting .... I have a life! In use it is fine, shame about the alarm clock function though, I miss that, but you can set it up through the datebook. The games are poor, but if I want to play a game I'll use my PC! I've doenloaded a great mix from hellomoto.com and think the polyphonic tones are good. The vibrate is very weak though. Need to be wearing tight trousers to feel it! The keypad could be a bit more responsive, sometimes you need to press the buttons twice. My main complaint is the cheap plastic used to cover the screen, it is very easily scratched and doesn't look pr etty after a while. You can replace the covers so its not a total disaster. All in all, for the price, its a good buy. Not as well made as my old Nokia though, but isn't that the same with everything today. Make it as cheaply as possible for maximum profit.
