I have bought this phone at 2004. Now I am using another mark but my old Motorola is still usefull and sometimes in urgence I use that phone. I really like Motorola C450 and I think that is a very good product according to 7 years and it is still perfectly working including battery. If I have to decide again than I definetely buy Motorola C450 again.

a good phone, but have some problems to get the mms-function to work but thatīs because some operators donīt care about it, but at least it works with one operator here in sweden and thatīs Telenor. small colour-screen and it canīt handle some of the gprs start-pages that are too big to download.works nicely to sms and phone people up with.

Colour screen however small and poor quality. no extra features such as a camera and video messaging. a few rubbish games. i bought this phone for eighty pounds, but it can now be bought for fifteen pounds. not worth the eighty! good if all you want to do with your phone is call and text people. battery life is appauling. doesnt last more than 1 day if on all the time. small buttons however does have interchangable covers. inconclution a great first phone, however no good for an experienced phone user. hope this review was of help xxx

A very reliable phone. The lack of a photo camera isn't a minus, while the main purpose of a phone is to make calls. The USB conectivity is well implemented, and so the java support. The menus are easy to find/use/understand. The MotoMixer is a cool adition too. That's it. **** (With at least 8 MB, it would get *****. imo)

This phone is great because it does what a phone should and ring and text people without being brakable and unreliable. I ve had this phone for a year and it has survived all the drops i often do. The phone is easy to use and isnt over loaded with gadgets which could be a let down. The phone looks and sounds great and is a great size. Not 1 4 people who r used to camera phones with all the gadgets on but a great phone all the same!

I test phones as a living and get paid quite alot, and i see this phone as an absolute aste of my work time. The features are not very good. There is no camera, and i don't really enjoy the games. However, the battery life impressed me alot. If you want a fancy high tech fone don't bother with this, but if you just want a cute little phone to make texts and phone calls then by all means get this phone.

Its a great phone especially with the ring tones. But the display is letting it down, the battery meter has got only three bars and therefore misleading, the large sound on switching on and off is a problem, it does not have auto switch on and off and its a shame really that the alarm works only when the phone is switched on

This phone is alright to me, it is user friendly, the games are good. But the style looks a bit toylike though. The only thing that lets it down is the display.

The visual appeal is good. Is quite user friendly. The ring tones (polyphonic)are not loud enough though. Has a satisfied customer in me.
