I've had my T720 for a couple of months and I don't get the reviews! Bad screen, false, very clear and large! Bad reception, false, very clear, probably your sevice provider. Poor battery life, try CHARGING, just plug it into a CHARGER at the end of the day and OMG it's always charged, unless your stuck on a desert island with no electricity 5 days out of every week it's your fault not the T720!! The web browser is slow, false, fast as any dial up! The flip top is poorly made, wrong, it is very sturdy, try opening it without trying to be Captain Kirk and you should have no problems! The ringer is too low, so wrong again, if anything it is too loud, once again I think it is the fault of the user, maybe just wants a whole restaurant to hear his new and irritating download of Snoop Dog's latest! Email is not bad although this feature I find kind of stupid on a phone at this price, if you need it pay $500-$600 for a BlackBerry 7780! Text messaging I leave to the kids, but it works fine too! This may also apply to kids too, the ringer cannot be heard in clubs!! Too bad! The design is superb and funtional compaired to other flip tops. and the large keyboard is user friendly. I have had Motorola's before and they have always been a good product. After reading the reviews I found it interesting that about 90% of the complainers are from the US, while about 90% of the reviews from outside the US are positive, go figure! Seems like the phone works well in the outback of Australia, the heat of Gabon and the urban center of London but fails to make the grade in Knee Bend Nebraska? Too bad as Motorola is an American owned and run company! I give this phone a good rating as it deserves 5 stars!!

alright this phone is pretty miserable but its got some good features to. one good thing is that the phone is fully customizable i mean u can change EVERYTHING. it is also the most durably phone i ever had. (i left it buried in snow for 3 days and it came out fine) the web access also isnt bad. now time for the disadvantages (to say the least) this phone is so quiet its practically mute!!! seriously, if u stick it in your pocket you will never hear it. not even in the quietest of places. also i dont think ive ever had more then 2 bars or service on this phone and ive had it for about 6 months. if u want a neat little toy that u can screw around ith (light up batteries/antennas, bad@$$ covers etc) then this phone is perfect. if u actually need a phone, do not get this hunk of garbage.

As seen in other reviews, the phone resets to a purple screen, drops calls all the time, I have had it replaced by Cingular FIVE times, the last two were refurbs (they don't tell you that when they hand them to you) There is a tag under the battery, that is not there on a factory phone. I broke my contract with Cingular, b/c they wanted me to buy another phone, or file a false insurance claim (saying it was lost or stolen). I gave them 10 days to replace the phone with no money out of my pocket, they declinded to do so. I paid for the phone, it no longer works, and was replaced due to factory defects 5 times in 7 months. Clearly voiding the contract. You can't make calls on a broken piece of junk. The customer service was a joke. I've been a good customer for a long time, I do not understand why they would not replace a phone that cost them pennies on the dollar, to keep a good customer, with multiple lines. The phone is junk.

Compared to the Nokia 3585 I used to have, I thought it was a good phone (even thought the Nokia had better reception). Compared to the LG LX5450 that I traded it in for, it is somewhat on the cheesy side. Being that this was the first flip phone that I owned, I found it to be very user friendly and the color screen was phenomenal. However, there were a couple of things that eventually cause me to exchange it. First, this phone doesn't have an easy to use alarm clock function. To get it to alarm, you have to set a calendar reminder, which proves to be somewhat of a hassle. Secondly, the battery life on this phone sucks! Once fully charged, it's supposed to give you 90 - 225 minutes of talk time. The most I could get was just under 60 minutes. I had to charge the d_ _n thing every night. On top of that, I realized (after having another flip phone to compare it to) that the Motorola T720 is not as sturdy as the phone I am currently using. As far as phones go, y ou could do a lot worse than this phone, but you could also do a lot better.

This thing is by far the worst phone I have ever had. I've had it for a year and both chargers have failed on me (I keep getting an "Unable to Charge" error now), the battery life is nowhere near a full day, reception is miserable - calls drop for no reason - and the thing turns itself off if I look at it wrong. It's slow and unresponsive. My Samsung phone was better than this piece of junk. I can only say that I am now back in the market looking for another phone. Stay away from this one and shame on Motorola for even putting this on the market the way it is. Their Q/A group must have been gutted during all the layoffs.

I orginally purchased the T720 for myself ( I am a cellular agent) My phone never worked right, voice dial wouldn't work, couldn't hear well off phone, phone wouldn't not charge all the time and phone beeped every minutes losing service. My husband next wanted to get a T720 so he went and got one, his wouldnt' charge correctly either. So finally his stopped charging all together and the hinge on mine broke so I shipped them off. I recieved my phone back w/ replaced hinge and they replaced the inside so it will charge. I got his back and was told it had water damage. This is not so. I wouldn't have either bothered sending it off if it got wet. With me being an Alltel cellular agent I have seen many T720 phones the past few months with the same problem and I give them motorola's warranty address and ask them to send the phones to them. Noone has came back to me telling me thei phone wasn't replaced but it makes me wonder since Moto is trying to say the hubby's phone has water damage when I no it doesn't. I am fixing to contact Alltel since I have 1 T20 left to sell and ask them to take it back since they seem to be poorly made. I switched to an LG330 and love it. I get service again and can actually hear calls now!!!!! p.s. and it charges when i need it to

well it appears that people have been getting mixed results from the t720. some say it sucks and some love it. i loved it at first, and its a really nice looking peice if you ask me, but i have some serious qestions about its qaulity. when you open it the plastic sqeaks and groans like its gonna fall of. this is also not a durable phone. mine got a big crack in the front lcd screen and now that screen doesent work. as far as operation, i think this thing does pretty well. the color screen is big and great, the menus are easy to use, and for me at least, the reception has been great. but for the money, there are much better phones out there.

I'm so frustrated w/this phone, it phone makes me want to break my contract with AT&T and go to another service provider. I'm a broke college student, unable to afford some other phone at the moment (because I spent $200 on this one), so I've had to stick it out with this horrible, Motorola t720 for a little more than a year! In the span of a 10 minute conversation, they'd be 2 dropped calls--The phone would magically turn off, bringing me to a purple tinted screen. It's takes ages to turn the phone ON, it takes minutes to load, the "Please wait" screen frequently appears when I attempt to go to my phone book. There's many glitches--I can't even begin to list what else is wrong w/this phone because it gives me a headache. All you NEED in a phone is decent reception, the ability to ACTUALLY MAKE calls, HEAR people on the other end, flip thru your phone book for numbers, -- But you can't even do basic things w/a Motorola t720!!!

Wish there was the option for NO star. Earlier I posted a review ( Back in Dec.)of this phone and I gave it pretty good marks. At the time I had noticed no malfunctions and was very satisfied. That was until just a couple of weeks ago when out of no where the phone started smelling when being charged, and then suddenly smoke rolled out of it. Had nothing to do with the battery , nor the charger, as both were tested and proved to be perfectly functional. The board inside the phone decided that it didn't like it's whole 3 volts and went in to melt-down. The cingular tech. was amazed. He then gave me a new phone and charger and 750ma batt. and off I went. I never even made it home before this thing started doing things that I had read about in the postings several times, i.e, randomly turning itself on and off, and all the while saying that it had a full charge. Thinking that I may need to give it a chance to sit over-night on a charge, I returned home with it and did just that...16 hours of being plugged in.In the morning I left for work with the phone and remebered that I needed to call and wake my daughter for school, and when I called her I got about two minutes conversation off before it shut-down and said the batt. was low again, only to turn itself back on moments later claiming it was full again, and again moments later of it went. It did this all day. Finally, a co-worker who also had a Moto sugested that we try my batt. in his phone, and sure as heck...it worked fine, but was about half discharged. After work I returned to cingular with the phone, and what was amazing to ME was that when the tech. came from the back room where they do their "Techy" thing, he was holding in his hand...yep, a T-720 and he proceeded to explain to some lady how he just didn't understand why her phone was doing whatever it was doing, but that he would replace it with new guts. I very calmly explained that if this phone wasn't replaced with another brand that I would be heading for jail as he was heading for the hospital. The folks at cingular as well as motorola know full good and well that there are some very serious issues with these phones, but the one mass-produced a bunch of them, and so they need the other to do what they can to push them to the market, even if it means having to swap better than half of them out. If they can just do this long enough for the warranty to run out, maybe they won't lose as much production money. But they need the service providers to be "Hush Hush" about the problems...or else! I was fortunate to make it out of there with the Nokia 3300 as even exchange, and with no prison sentence. Hope everyone will have the same or better results

This is the worst phone i've ever had. I have had this phone for a little over 2 months, and I originally bought it because of the design. Great color screen, and I love flip phones... HOWEVER, I could not believe how terrible the reception was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE (and it isn't the service i use either, because i have been with cingular for years). It costantly drops my calls, friends of mine can't hear me when I call them, etc. Basically everything that was already said. Yes, its a nice design, but the phone is an absolute ripoff. My fellow coworker also has this phone and he HATES it - has the same problem i do.

The phone looks well balanced in shape and size. Many people are complaining about some things regarding this phone, short batery life, bad reception, bugs etc. But, in my experience you get very good product regarding the cost. I have owned 20 phones till now from different manufacturers, and this phone seems to be the best of them all in his class. The batery is always network dependable, so i cant say that it has short life. The menu is very good, and it has a lot of functions. The reception is excelent (typical for motorola. i have also motorola v70). I must say that this is the real phone for you. Stylish and full of functions.

This phone is a piece of junk. I've had it for almost a year and a half because I am a poor collage student and can't afford a new one. I have experienced all the problems other people have written about (except a broken hinge). My four biggest complaints are 1.Very short battery life. People have written that it lasts about 5 days. Mine has stayed on that long too, IF YOU HAVE HAD NO CALLS! If you are talking on the phone (which is the point btw) it lasts only about an hour. The battery meter on the phone is not an accurate indicator either. 2. The screen blacks out and freezes up and you have to take the battery out to unfreeze it. 3. It rings very quietly 4. It drops calls in areas that seem to have full reception. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! Kudos to those of you who have suffered through owning one!

I went for this phone because of slick design and style as replacement to old faithful Nokia 5120. I still love the design of T720, but using it is much less pleasure. First of all, it takes about 15 sec to tome to life and establish connection. Second, flipping it open with one hand is a struggle. Absolutely not fun in the car. Third, blind dialing is a challenge, the buttons are so flat, that you can't tell one from the other, unless you really concentrate on it. Finally, an ambitious and overloaded UI squeezed into this phone runs real slooow and has poor usability. Just to mention that you can't summon your quick dial numbers unless you are in the main screen(!). Searching through the the telephone book is pain again: if the person's name starts with say, "S" and press the "7" key four times, the phone gives you a message that it could not find entry starting with 7, p, q, ect. Forget searching, they don't have page scroll, you have to scroll row by row! Well, I still can live with all of it, but now it randomly discharges the battery, apparently, because of an electirical short-circuit and sporadically reports full battery after 30 sec of charge. Well, I've got one year out of it, time to move on, will think 3 times before bying Motorola again.

Let's be clear - this phone is not as bad as it is made out to be. The menu system is clear, easy to use and customisable. There is a lot of memory available for phone numbers and email addresses. The predictive text is different from the T9 used on most other manufacturer's mobiles, but can be got used to. The signal reception is good, as is the call clarity. Even WAP/GPRS is quite good for train times etc. It also looks good - alot better than other clamshells available. (Roll up the Sharp GX10/20/30) Yep, the battery doesn't last too long - although I get 5 days out of it - but you can always (shock horror!) CHARGE IT! This is Moto's best effort yet, and the newer models will build on its success. Don't be put off!

Well, I've had this phone for about 3 months and I have to say I'm fairly impressed with it. Before I had one of the old Fido Nokia's that were free so this is a definite change. That and the nokia's are a piece of junk. The flip is stylish and convenient for saving the screen and keypads from damage. Those purple and blue lines you get, that's called grease people, try wiping the phone off after you use it. The biggest complaint I have is when it drops a call suddenly. While this isn't a major thing just a minor irritation (How hard is it to redial?) I don't have any other problems. I've drop kicked this thing down the street and it keeps ticking like nothing. I've had the "unable to charge" screen come up a couple times, but simply removing the charge plug and replacing it corrects this. As for everyone bashing the battery life, I can go 4-6 days without a charge and talk on average of a half an hour each day without problem. Thing is, cell phones arn't meant to replace LAN phones, you shouldn't be talking for hours on end on one. If you need to do that, go use a pay phone, they're everywhere anyways. I think many of you failed to follow the vendors directions when you got the new phone. The batteries are a certain type where they have a first use "memory" of sorts. You have to drain them completly on first use. (Play games, call people, whatever) then recharge it fully without using it. (Keep it turned off as well). This takes approx 24-48 hours. Then repeat once more. After that the battery is set. Most people generally just have at it and plug the thing in whenever the charge gets low. WRONG! Read the manual people, it's all there. The hinges on the lid? Never had a problem, but then, I don't rip mine open and jump around all insanely when I get a call. The low quality of the speaker, had a bit of problem with this, but it's 2 things, the volume for the speaker has to be changed WHILE YOU'RE TALKING. Secondly if the person who you're talking to has their volume down you arn't going to hear them worth a damn. Busses, well, they're loud arn't they? You have to shout anyways. That's a dumb reply. All in all it's not something worth offering up as the greatest phone in the world, but it's also not the worst I've come across. 3 stars for this one.

The phone has good reception and when you place it correctly on your ear (very difficult to do), you can hear fine. The phone takes forever to "boot-up". Navigation of the menus is OK. I've had two T720's since December, 2003 and both developed screen problems. Including the two T720's, I've had four Motorola phones since 1999. The first was an analog Startac; the second (my kids are still using it) is a Motorola digital Startac. Both Motorola Startacs are rugged as Hummers. The only problem I've had was with the antenna (one broke, but was easy and inexpensive to fix). Now about the main problem with the T720. I purchased a second line with Alltel in December, 2003 and received a Motorola T720. It is a very nice looking phone with lots of cool features. Around 3/1/04, I noticed the screen would not completely turn off when the phone would go into standby. It was glowing with a slight blue glow even when the phone was closed. This would cause the battery to disch arge in less than 8 hours. I took the battery out and left it out several times (once for several hours) hoping to "reset" it. This didn't work, so I took it in for repair to Alltel. They gave me a replacement T720 (it was used). Two weeks later (3/19/04), Alltel called to say that Motorola claimed the phone had been damaged and that it "appeared" someone had tried to disassemble it. Alltel wanted the replacement phone back (or pay $165) because mine was not covered under warranty. I told them that my phone had not been abused and I had not tried to take it apart. I wanted it repaired! The technician and manager after examining the phone agreed with me and sent it back to Motorola again (thanks Alltel!). The replacement worked fine until 4/9/04, when the screen went blank. The phone worked and the small screen on the cover worked, but the large screen would not come on. I took that phone in and they gave me a new T720 this time (thanks again Alltel!). Alltel has the best reception in this area. I hope the phone lasts until my contract is up. I plan to look for a different phone. Motorola has the ability to make superior phones (the Startacs have been great; rugged, great reception and easy to use). I think the T720 is a bad design and is flimsy. I definitely think there is a design or manufacturing flaw with the T720 screen.

From the start I had poor reception all over the place. To use the phone from home I have to stand beside the front window otherwise no one can hear me or the call drops all together. For 3 weeks it was at the repair shop. They "apparently" soldered some connection between the circuit board and the antenna. I got it home and it was no different then before. I know two people who have the same phone and have had no problems with it. It seems there are some serious duds since this is the worst cell phone I have ever owned.

PROS: Neato Moto software Light and easy to carry Can get a signal on the Verizon network just about anywhere CONS: Short battery life Can't transmit outgoing signal well Hard to hear inbound or talk outbound without separate earbug and mike. The Verizon guy is right-I can get incoming signal with my T720 just about anywhere. Incoming is crystal-clear, however people I call can't hear me and drop off. It could be Verizon's antennas can't pick me up or (more likely) the phone can't transmit a signal worth anything. Microphone and speaker are weak. Conversation stops when a bus passes me on campus. Motorola has a cheap, cute, mass-produced phone. Put the software and the clunky phone together and you get a customer anxious to wait for his contract to end and get a new phone.

It may be too late for Samantha, who wrote a review in December 2003, but I had the same problem with the "Invalid Battery" message and intermittent spontaneous power-downs. I took the phone to Verizon, and tried a new battery to no avail. To make a long story of ignorant people giving bad advice shorter, it turns out that removing the battery AND LEAVING IT OUT OF THE PHONE FOR A MINUTE OR LONGER allows the capacitance to discharge and will cause the phone to properly reset when powered on again. Quickly swapping batteries or momentarily removing the battery then replacing it may not be sufficient to get it to reset. Once this was pointed out to me, the phone reset just fine and works perfectly again.

Within a few months of buying the Motorola T720, the hinge broke, leaving me without a phone. At a replacement of $50, I purchased another phone of same kind, thinking that a second phone wouldn't break in the same way. Less than three months later, the Motorola T720 hinge broke; same break as the previous phone. Motorola appears to wish to continue having customers by making an inferior product guaranteed to break quickly. The reliability is high in that area. Customers, rest assured this phone will break; it's just a matter of months. If you want a phone that won't break -- this is not the one for you!

I don't understand why some people are having so many problems with this phone. I guess they must of gotten the bad pick of the bunch. I recently purchased this phone from Rogers Wireless and it seems to be fine to me. Sure you will lose reception sometimes, but what phone out there today does have this happen? You blame bad reception on the phone when most of the time it is a service provider problem (signal). Overall, I enjoy the phone. Only real issue I have is that I wish the games had sound to them.

This has got to be the worst phone that any person would be able to get. The phone is cheap and corny. The lcd screen keeps on getting blue and purple marks all over. I NEVER get any good reception. Whenever it shows good reception, you make a call and it suddenly jumps back to no reception. You charge the phone for 5 minutes and then it says charge complete when ya use it for 2 minutes and goes dead. It always blanks out in a middle of a call, Mmode, or when you flip the phone on or off. A little too big for young teenagers to use for such a piece of a crud company's products. Speaker is so low that i cant even hear it in my own house. Takes nearly 45 seconds to start up. And then when it finds reception after startup, you go to games, phonebook, calender, etc, it tells you please wait for 15 seconds. The lcd screen has no protection like nice phones do. It is easy to be scratched anywhere, anytime. I fell down on that floor and now the whole lcd scre en, split, and everything in the front of the phone is scratched until it was see through. It was definetly not worth buying this piece of junk with the plan even though it was for free. I would rather recommend the big phones we used a long time ago. I will NEVER EVER BEVER SEVER BUY A MOTOROLA AGAIN!!!

"Upgraded" to this phone from a V50 after years of robust and functional Motos and within a day, wished I hadn't. Absolutely c***. Have to wait an age to delete a text message whilst the "Please Wait" message flashes in the display. Takes 30 secs+ to switch on so I avoid letting the battery run low enough for the thing to switch itself off. Constantly crashes and misses calls. Says I have missed calls even when I've answered them - baffling. Frankly Motorola should offer everyone a free upgrade to something better. Never mind - getting the new V600 as soon as it's available and consigning this year long nightmare firmly to memory. Only good thing is I'll get a £50 trade-in from my srvice provider.

For you folks complaining about battery-life on this phone, and the few performance questions you may have; It's all about being smarter than the phone. I repeatedly hear people who have used mostly Nokia products and the such in the past, slambing the Ease Of Use of this phone.That's like being an Apple Computer OS2 user forever and suddenly jumping blind to an IBM and Microsoft Windows based system, expecting to know all the commands and funtions in an hour...Clue phone,it's for YOU! I wonder if you even hear it ringing! Things just do not work that way. Electronics, baby, electronics. Say you've been using an old Sony ProLogic Receiver for the past ten years in your home, and today you went out and bought a new Pioneer Elite 7.1 theater receiver with multible sound fields. Do you really think that your Sony knowlege will do you a bit of good when setting-up this state-of-the-art Elite Theater Processor? Well, certainly that it's taking you a while to set it up means it 's junk, right? It takes time and trial and error before you'll get used to ANY new electronic device, which brings us to the battery issue: Your new Chevy truck has a 350 c.i.d. Vortech V-8 engine in it. Chevy equipped that truck with a whole bunch of gas-pedal to shove to the floor, and when you do, that baby takes off like a bat-out-of-hell but, when you nail it like that you can just about see your fuel guage move with the increased consumption, so chances are, if you're smart, even though the power and pedal are always there, you're probably not going to be riding all over town with the pedal mashed to the floor. Drive in moderation and suddenly you're getting twice the milage to a tank of gas. Where I'm going with this is that there are features on the T-720 that can and should be configured for power savings. You can adjust how long the back-light stays on and things of the nature, and I promise you that if you take the time to CORRECTLY configure your phone (requires a touch of reading...hope you're able)you will find that this phone is actually a super nice offering. As far as the lid hinge...hyper-extend your elbow a few times and you'll soon find the error of your ways! Don't get so excited when you receive a call and that lid will last a very long time :-) My brother and I both have the T-720 and he too was having short run-time from his bat. I had him go in and hit the master re-set and then re-configure the phone and now he's amazed at the extended time he gets between charges. It's a telephone, not a television, therefore you don't need that back-light on at all times. I mean, come on, what do you do, sit and look at the display the entire time you're talking? I like my phone too, but I'm not so excited about it that I sit and look at it for hours! There is more to MY life than my silly phone, and I hope there is for you as well.

What a piece of junk!! This is by far the worst cell phone I have ever owned. For the past 5 years I have always had a Nokia, dependable, sturdy little phones. Well I recently moved and had to change from AT&T to Alltel. When I found out that the T720 was only $49 after a mail in rebate I couldn't believe it! I thought it would be a great little phone, looks good, nice and small, supposedly has good talk time. Well about a week after I had the phone that all went out the window. First of all the battery life on this phone is worthless. I can talk for about 45 minutes when fully charged before it goes dead. The antenna is weak, flimsy and offers poor reception. I'd say at least 4 out of 5 calls would be dropped in the middle, and that was when my phone would actually ring!! The next worst thing was the blue red screen of death! Randomally and for no reason the screen would blank out for a few seconds and then flash back on, saying no service and sometimes took up to a full minute to recover service. My battery stopped charging, after being plugged in for fewer than five minutes my phone would say fully charged, you turn it on and the battery was still dead. Keep in mind that this phone was only 4 months old. Lets just end it there by saying that I sent my phone in to get it fixed, motorola sent it back without fixing it saying that it was user neglect! Let me tell you that there was nothing neglected about that phone, it was just a big piece of junk! Needless to say I went down to the store today and purchased a brand new Nokia 3585i today and am very satisfied. From now on I'm sticking with my Nokia! Buyer beware!!!

Verizon exchanged the phone. 1 month later, the replacement phone will not charge half of the time -- "Unable To Charge" message. About a quarter of the time, it will say it is charging but the battery never gets the juice -- when charging is complete, according to the phone, the phone starts beeping at me almost as soon as I unplug the charger.

As my service provider now has changed from GSP to GPRS, it oftens displayed "Unregistered SIM" in stanby mode so you can not make or receive any call and have to restart the phone but the problem will happen after a short period - Screen response to keystroke was very slow, may be it must take time to think what to be perform.

This phone was forced upon me when my carrier was bought out by another system. At the time I was using the Motorola V60i and was pleased with the durability and ease of use in the extreme enviorments of Southern Arizona, but when I was handed the T720 I knew that there was going to be problems. Simply handling it and you understand that this is not a phone capable of taking any rough handling. The plastic is not "high impact" and the hinges are very fragile. The V60 it replaced had a metal case and cover as well as high impact plastic on the inside facing. Outside in the sun, the color screen if VERY difficult to read. I find myself seeking shade or covering the face with my body trying to read the screen. The color screen becomes more of an impediment than a feature... Battery life is another issue. My V60 could pretty much run for up to 5 days without a charge in standby mode, but the T720 needs charging within 24 hours. Not good when you are miles from an outlet. Make a series of calls and you have about 16 hours of battery life... When there is a better selection of phones with my carrier, I will be exchanging this one for something that can take the enviorment and with the battery life to go more than a day without a charge.

Great phone while it lasted, but three months after I got it the plastic hinge on the right side broke, making the phone unusable. Figured it would be covered in the warranty, but figured wrong. I guess making breakable plastic hinges on high stress areas is not considered a manufacture's defect. $350 down the toilet...Don't buy this phone unless you have a replacement contract and don't mind your flip phone flipping off it's hinges

The phone is decent,playing java games like SplinterCell downloaded form gameloft.com is a plesure,which could compare with Gameboy's colour games,You can also DIY a wallpaper with your own picture,but consider it will cost you 20 bucks in mymobilesoft.com. I currently live in London as a student,my Moto T720 is a Vodafone version, which didn't come with java game Tetris, does anyone here can help me to find this game ready to download for T720? thanks!

I have had my phone for about six months and have expirienced no problems. The things i found disappointing were the volume of the ringtones, the fact that you only get the demo versions of motogp, tetris and breakout,no stunt man! Then the fact that you can't text anyone who's not already in your phone book, the text "outbox" is non-existant, and the fact that without the camera you cant send any pics that weren't already on the phone when it came. Also don't buy it without the camera, you can't buy find it anywhere, not even on the official website!! One last moan is that the phone takes at least thirty seconds to switch on! these are only very superficial things, the phone is excellent and im very glad I bought it!! This was my first mobile and i found that as long as you skimmed through the manual it was a very user-friendly phone. you can get hold of a lot of free java games, including the whole version of breakout. Another good thing is that the memory is huge, you get tons of ringtones with the phone, I have downloaded ten large polyphonics to go with it, at least thirty pics from the esato website and then I got rid of tetris and got four new java games!! Wap is great on the phone, it's so easy to use and java is outstanding, the screen size is a real bonus, twice the size of the sony ericsson t68i! well worth the money.

Stylish design, large colour screen, interchangeable front and back cover, decent battery life etc, all make Motorola T720 a great choice for those who don't need a phone camera and desperate for colour screen. But,as for bad points, Motorola still need to improve its polyphonic ringtones compare to Samsung T100,the menu also need to simplify which took a new Motorola user like me two days to understand it,thanks to the User Manual,I would be really greatful if they give another 20 pages to explain this phone more detailed. It's been a nightmare to download stuffs from HELLOMOTO, there are three ways you can get your ringtones or java games downloaded, I have tried SMS purchase, spent few quids to send a SMS messgae and never get a reply,I have also tried credit card purchase,this time they reply very quick,by sending a message to your MOTO, then just follow the download instruction......finally, what I got was not the ringtone but a error message saying the data server is not available.
