Motorola V975 review

 Review: April 2005  
 

Rating:

In a nutshell: An entry-level 3G clamshell phone with video calling and mp3 player.

 

The Motorola V975 is an entry-level 3G mobile. Its specification is virtually identical to the Motorola C975, except that it is a clamshell phone, not a "candy bar" shape. Its 4-way scroll pad is better than the clunky joystick on the C975.

The V975 is a good all-rounder with everything that you would expect from a 3G phone: video calling & video content downloads, integrated mp3 player, integrated speakerphone, a good quality display, and an expandable memory. The expandable memory is a very useful feature, enabling you to store content like video clips and MP3 tracks on a TransFlash card (up to 256 Mbytes), although you shouldn't expect to be able to store as much as a dedicated mp3 player.

There are two cameras on the V975. The first points inwards and is used for video calling. The second faces outwards and is intended for taking pictures of people or scenes. The quality of both cameras is fine, and the screen is large with 65k colours. It compares favourably with rival 3G phones.

Usefully, the V975 comes with an integrated speakerphone and voice dialling - ideal for video calls.

There is nothing really missing from the Motorola V975. It doesn't have top-end features like Bluetooth, 262k colour screen or a megapixel camera, but for the price you shouldn't expect that. Instead it's a good all-round entry-level 3G phone, the only real downsides being high weight and poor battery life.

Motorola V975 features include:

  • VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) with LED flash
  • Video capture, playback & downloads
  • 3G video calling
  • Handsfree speaker
  • Internal display: TFT, 65,000 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
  • Messaging: MMS, email (POP3, IMAP4)
  • Polyphonic ringtones & MP3 ringtones
  • Java™ games (embedded & downloadable)
  • Phonebook (max entries dependent on memory)
  • Memory: 16 Mbytes plus TransFlash™ memory card (up to 256 Mbytes)
  • Connectivity: USB
  • WAP 2.0, GPRS, 3G high-speed data transfer
  • Triband + 3G
  • Vibration alert
  • Size: 94 x 49 x 27 mm
  • Weight: 137g
  • Talktime: up to 130 minutes
  • Video talk time: 70 minutes
  • Battery standby: up to 145 hours

I love my phone and have since i got it xmas 2005. Sadly, yesterday, 20th July 2011 its given up, or given in. I've worked it hard, but it's served me so well. Can anyone help? it's still recieving texts, playing the ringtone etc, but the face is'nt lit so i can't access the messages or any other function. The back light for the buttons is still working though. Can anyone please help me.

I know that, in this modern age of iPhones and Blackberries, that I should really consider a technical upgrade from my old, faithful V975 - but the MIDI player is too awesome for words to describe, and FAR to spectacular for anyone with a brain stem to shun. Musically, there's nothing better than a blast of F-Zero's Mute City Theme through that superb synthesiser - it betters the polyphonic capabilities of any other other phone (before or since) by a huge margin. For this reason, it simply HAS to have five stars.

This is a fantastic phone, the best, i love it so much. I have owned my since xmas 05, that's almost 4 years,and wouldn't part with it for anything. I don't know what i'd do if it broke. I have recently added a micro sd card for extra storage. I can even save voice messages to sounds although when ive mentioned this to 3 they argue thats impossible. I can assure everyone it can be done. The only downside if there is one is the battery life. But that's the battery and not this beautiful faithful phone.

I really hate this phone, it was so bad I wouldn't even take it out of the house. I was given the phone when my 6230i broke after getting soaked. The V975 never had a look in against my previous 6230i and I hated it. I am now using a Samsung SGH Z140V which is better but still only temporary until I get my Nokia N95.

I brought this phone more than 2 years ago and at the time it was pretty good. The only downside to it was the battery. It never lasted that long. Now it can only mange to do 2 calls! Just looking for a new battery since I given the phone to a family member. I ave since replaced it with the Sony K800i and in comparison there is not contest. The phone market is a lot better with better cameras, looks and battery power. Some people complained about the weight. I would never consider getting this now since there are a wider selection to choose from.

This phone is the entry level for 3 in Ireland. Coming from Scotland I signed up to 3 stright away on the contract as I know they are ace in the UK. I chose the M975 cause it was cheap and man I am finding outnthe hard way that you get what you pay for. The phone, for doing what it was made fro (making calls) is fantastic, cause it works. i would agree with all statements made about the bettery life, the pics that take themsleves (due to the over sensitive side buttons, the fact it has no bluetooth or infared is a pain. All ni all it is an average phone...ideal fro the 3G beginer, the video is quite good, pics are rubbish and the memory is poor. if you want to just nake calls and catch up on the footie scores thsi is sa perfect phone, but you will be sacrificing a few extras like bluetooth and infared, if you can handle this(the likes of my parents could) then it is a great phone!!!

I've had this since just before Christmas and I think most of the reviewers must have a different phone, or don't know anything about mobile phone care. My battery life is fine- I have to charge every few days. The camera is rubbish by current standards but is fine for snaps. It has low memory and no Bluetooth, which are my main problems with it. It's my first flip phone and has completely sold me the concept. I feel like Captain Kirk every time I use it, and although it's quite clunky in size now, compared to the first 3G phones it is tiny (I had one the size of a housebrick until this one) and it's really not that heavy. Reassuringly present without being a burden.

The V975 modelis not that bad of a phone generally, there are just a few factors that start getting on your nerves in a short time. E.g. taking pictures of your pocket and bag via side buttons, short battery life, low memory (although with the help of a memoryb stick this can be solved) and the outside buttons that repeatedly change my ring style! This is what i find most annoying, I go to school and put the phone on silent, then i find that in class my mobile is ringing! this is because of all the bashing around in my bag has changed the ring style back to LOUD!! Great phone, but definietly has its problems.

I've had this phone for nearly 12 months and I haven't been overly impressed with it. What I like: The mp3 player is handy and the fact that I can download my music to use as my ringtone. I like the weight of the phone, personally I like having a weighty phone because I know that I have my phone on me. I like the design of the phone and the easy access of the camera button. What I don't like: The battery!!! The battery life is terrible! I only have to make one or two phone calls before the battery goes. Not good!! Although I like the MP3 player, the phone can only hold about 5 songs and I cant send the songs to other people. The camera quality is average but could be a hell of a lot better. I found that the phone is easily damaged and scratched, it makes the phone look cheap. Finally the camera button gets pressed inside my bag so I end up with black pictures. Overall I wouldn't recommend this phone because of the poor battery, it becomes a big bug bear.

Having read some of the reviews I think that in general the phone may be faulty, however I have had little problem with opening of the phone book other than at the start up and the battery life has lasted up to 2 days. Yes the lack of bluetooth is disappointing however I think this is a good phone especially if you just want a phone with basic feautures. The main problems i have hasd with the phone are with the camera as the quick access buttons on the side make it simple to access however if the phone is in your pocket you may start to hear some snaps taken and find your photo memory is full within minutes and the second problem is that i find this phone very fragile or im very clumsy as the silver finish has worn to a bronze colour, the camera button on the side is broken and the charger card is broken (THIS COST 40 TO REPLACE) Never the less I was pleased with my phone and have another one on order.

One thing really really annoys me about this phone: battery life! Why can't this thing hold a charge for more than a day and why does it go from 3 bars to zero in the course of an hour? No other phone I have ever had has done this (moto v60, v600, Nokia 3310). In terms of useability it is annoying to open, the buttons on the outside are a real pain (they keep resetting my ringtone, volume etc.) and the phone doesn't seem to register the same signal strength despite never being moved (that could be 3G though). Overall I find this phone disappointing.

Some of the people here who have given the v975 more than one star might actually want to try using it as a phone for more than a week. Actually... more than 8 hours is a miracle, since the battery rarely holds charge more than a day. The built in "auto battery flatten" feature is enhanced by another great innovation - external video camera buttons that cleverly start the camera filming the inside of your pocket. Just in case you think the menu might let you program these buttons to NOT do this, or even let you lock the buttons when the phone is flipped shut, think again. No Bluetooth or IR are sad enough in a so-called "state of the art" phone, but added to the dismal quality still camera ( video quality is considerably better... bizarre ) and woeful TFT display resolution you will hardly be waiting outside your Telstra shop to buy one. I've had mine for a month, and I'm completely over it. Very, very disappointing. Goodbye Moto.

Hmm, people seem to have a heap of problems with this phone, so maybe I just got lucky, but so far I have found it to be a solid and reliable phone. I've had it a year, and have had no major problems with it. Minor gripes are that the areial is a bit uncomfortable when it's in my pocket, the camera buttons on the side are easily knocked, leading to alot of pictures of the inside of my pocket, less than stunning battery life, camera quality lacking a little, basic memory being enough to hold all of 3 MP3s and the PC software being user unfriendly. However, I wanted it to be a phone (rather than a fasion statement, MP3 player and personal organiser rolled into one), and this function it performs as required, when required, provided I charge it once per day.

I have this on a Three tariff which (provided you remember to reclaim the rebate cheques) represents extremely good value for money compared to other networks. (I get 500 cross network minutes and 100 texts - for what works out at 12 quid a month over the year, vs the 30 quid for 200 I used to pay O2 for) But I have a few gripes with the phone: Major concerns: 1) The battery life - it is absolutely rubbish. It never lasts more than about 1.5 days on standby. This is far and away the most annoying thing about the phone - my old Sony T610 on O2 lasted like 8 days on full charge/normal usage. I know 3G sucks batteries compared to 2G - but couldn't they put a better battery in it then to neutralise this! 2) Ruggedness. I basically keep all my phones in my pocket with my keys and change. They normally get trashed after about a year. But this one I have had 7 months and the charger port is already on the blink. Phones really ought to stand up better to wear and tear. Although to be fair it isn't as bad as the old Siemens one I had where all the buttons fell off. 3) No keypad lock. Okay it is a clamshell phone so the normal keys can't get knocked.. Except the side buttons can - I get quite annoyed deleting photographs of the inside of my pocket that it has decided to take. Minor concerns: 4) No bluetooth/IR. I knew this when I bought it and they do supply a cable so not all bad. But still a bit annoying - though I suppose the battery life is already terrible without adding bluetooth! 5) The camera pic quality is a bit pants. 6) The addressbook has separate entries for home/mobile/work etc - rather than showing 1 entry per person. I'm not keen on this approach. 7) It's a bit big. Thanks for listening to me rant ;-) Andy

the 3 network sucks! i have had nothing but problems. as other people previously have said, the V975 battery life sucks big time, mine doesnt even last a day! i often have alarms that dont work, the fone freezes up when it likes. i have had this fone replaces 3 times as it is still under its free replacement 2 mth warrenty... every fone was rubbish and had problems! the 3 network is a pain as i often have no reception even though in am in the city right next to a mobile tower! it likes to drop out mid calls and often doesnt let me make a call until like the 3rd or 4th time of calling. definately stick with the big brands in fones eg nokia and fone companies even though u might not get as good as a deal, u'll get service and RECEPTION!

Owned = 6 months. I have to admit, this phone not having Infared OR bluetooth, does make it a bad buy. Battery i dont think is that bad, probably the same as any other motorola or new phones always about 2-3 days i'd say. Menu is not very easy to use, but when you get used to it its ok. My recent probably are with the call line, for the past two weeks the line goes fuzzy, not due to lack of signal just due to the phone playing up it crackles for a while then sorts itself out the does it again about 2 minutes later. Very fustrating and has resorted me to only texting now. I still think its very stylish and have had more problems with my network than the phone itself. I note that most of everyones problems are with 3 - how amuzing, i have had endless problems with this company, I was on a cash back plan, which by the way DONT EVER GO FOR, i never recieved my money, after a long fight with an operator i recieved one cheque and then gave up sending the rest off. unfortunatly i dont have time to take these half wits to court, i will be moving on and going with vodafone. Piece of advise, 3 WILL NOT CANCEL YOUR CONTRACT until you have registered your pac code with your new suppliers, (they fail to mention that one in the contract) Hope this helps! phone = OK. 3 Network = Rubbish!

Have had phone for 3 weeks now, after buying a super cheap 3 deal. Bought it cos of cheap deal and lots of X-net minutes. Thought (clearly very wrongly) that such a cheap deal - doesn't matter what phone I get, any will be alright! Have always been a nokia user and regretting taking this contract already. Phone battery life is very poor, menus aren't as customisable as nokia's, alarm clock is rubbish... and many more gripes! Lastly the software isn't compatible with Mac computers and there is no bluetooth so I can't even transfer mp3s photos, etc, removing the benefit of these novelty "extras". Having passed my 14-day no-quibble money-back guarantee, I would appreciate any comments anyone might have on how to sell the phone contract on eBay or otherwise. It's one of these 15/30 month contracts with a 210 cashback at month 6 averaging the contract out to 5/month. Give me a nokia any day.

Ive owned a Motorola V975 for about one year and theres a definate problem with the phone. The video recording is to short, the camera qualities very poor. The phone also either fizzes out and needs to be turned on again or the screen goes white with no picture. The other thing I dont like about the phone is that I keep loosing the signal - talking to someone signal gone thats a bad phone. Not being able to get a signal in a number of different areas thats a problem - not being able to get a signal to the 3G element of the phone in a lot more areas thats also a big problem. I dont like the phone and will be glad when my contract with it finally ends - until that time I'll live with the torment.

Each time a new battery was supplied & would still only get 2 days standby out of it & I am not an excessive user & actually live in a good THREE area,in the end had to buy 2 extra batteries from Hong Kong. all in all was glad to see the back of it,have always been a fan & user of Motorola mobiles but alas no more,have now gone back to my LG which gives me 5 days standby & constant 3G coverage which the V975 could never manage.

My phone started to have problems after 30 days (if it had been within 28 the shop would have just replaced it). The screen kept going black and although I could make and receive calls I couldn't access my phone book or texts because there was no display on the screen. My contract is with 3 who have 'repaired' it twice and sent it back to me only for the same fault to reoccur. The third time it was sent back they replaced the handset but only with a refurbished phone. The phone I received worked for a couple of hours but then exhibited a fault (which was different from the first phone I had). The screen goes from colour to white with black writing in the middle of calls and cuts me off. If I try to access anything with a screen display such as phone book or messaging a timer appears. Occassionally it does take me to the message menu but if I press the select button the white and black screen comes on and the phone reverts to the start screen. I phoned 3 customer service who have offered to repair this phone for me and assure me they will replace it (with another refurbished phone!) if the fault reoccurs. I have only had my contract for 2 months and am getting nowhere. They obviously are repairing the phones but if the fault recurrs and they eventually replace your phone, someone else down the line gets your phone if theirs fails and inherits the problems along with it. I have told them that I am going to cancel but no reply so the phone is going back by registered post on Monday and the direct debit being cancelled as they obviously have not been able to provide me with the talk and text time that I have purchased. This phone has been a nightmare - I noticed all the other minor faults such as external buttons, battery life and non-functioning alarm but would have put up with them if the phone at least worked! If youu've got a V975 that works properly count yourself lucky!

i signed to a contract with 3 at the end of august '05 and ive had nothing but problems with the phone since. It keeps dropping calls half way through them, or it says call failed even though the reception is a maximum, and sometimes it doesnt receive calls. It doesnt ring my end and the caller is directed straight to my voicemail, which cos i cant ring out i cant collect. I sent the phone for repair and it came back but nothing had changed, with the help of The Link where i got the phone through weve discovered the fault to be with the sim card. Today is the 4th October '05 and ive spent most fo the day talking to 3 customer services...which is laughable and they offer the customer no service what so ever. They repeatedly told me the fault wasnt with the sim and that the phone just needed reprogramming. Ive gone through exactly the same 'reprogramming' with 4 different 'advisors' today and on 3 other attempts they said i was lying, cut me off and said the computers werent working, even though when i called straight back and talked to a colleague their computer was working fine even thought theyre networked. In the end The Link ( who have been wonderful by the way ) called the 3 customer service while i was in the shop, first time they hung up on her, second time they refused yet again to replace my sim card, and then said it was my fault for using my phone during peak time!!!! she telling them that they ought to try using the bloody phone and then slamming the phone down. I have been to the bank this afternoon and cancelled my Direct Debit, there is no way theyre getting another penny form me, as far as im concerned they are in breach of contract for refusing to provide a service i signed up for. I shall be visiting Citizens Advice Bureau on Monday and id advise anyone with similar problems to do the same. Perhaps this phone is as good as people say and all my problems are with the '3' Network, so i gave it a 3 star rating based on the phone

I only have this phone, because it seemed the most reasonable that the 3 network were offering. I'm not intersted in video calling (or that much in the multimedia options) but I do like getting 500 minutes a month to next to nothing. I'm sure most people use 3 for this reason. Having had an LG phone before, I can honestly say that this phone has been more reliable during calls. The previous phone I had used to cut off several times during a call. I have rarely experienced it with this one I have read the other reviews on this page and I agree with two points in particular: 1. the battery life is very poor. Two days standby time seems to be it's upper limit; and 2. the buttons on the outside of the camshell allow for the phone to regularly take pictures of the inside of my pocket. To conclude, if you need a highly reliable phone for business use this isn't going to work. If you need a phone for pleasure and for a lot of free voice calls, which is fairly reliable, you can't go too wrong with this. Just make sure you make a note of the dates that your cashbacks are due. Apparently less than 16% of people actually claim all of their money back. The 28 day clause catches out most. Don't be stung!

I cannot belive I brought this phone. I know 3 other people who have this phone and we are all having the same problems so I know it's not just my phone playing up. a word of warning- I use my phone as an alarm in the morning. Because of the terrible battery life, I have to charge it over night. Make sure you don't set the alarm then connect it to the charger otherwise your alarm WONT go off. If you set your alarm then get a message, you have to go and disable the alarm then re-set it or it won't go off!! Every action with this phone seems to reset the alarm. you have to plug it into the charger, then set your alarm then leave it alone and don't touch the phone at all or your alarm won't go off. Everyone keeps saying the video quality is good????? What???? the quality is horrible, I tried having a video call and I could hardly make out the person on the other end it was so pixilated!! Brought the phone cause 3 raved about it so much in the store and how fantastic it was and how good 3 coverage was in my area, yet how come it's always on roaming??? When it is on 3 signal, I'll go to log onto 3 site on the phone and it always drops out and switches to roaming. I have rang 3 about 10 times due to issues with the phone because the manual you get with it is hopeless and doesn't explain a thing!! But everytime I've called 3 I've been put thru to people who i can't even understand their language, and they can't understand me!! it's stupid. 3 are NO help.

I too was fed up with the very low battery life as it only lasts a day or so, so I invested 4 in a spare battery from ebay, fabulous!! I also agree that there is not enough space for mp3s, ok I know mine needs attention, but its looking as though I will have to invest around 30 for a memory card to store more than five tracks on it! that is if 3 find anything wrong with it, I would be interested to see if anyone else has the same problem with the mp3 player??

I bought this phone at about 2 months. Its outstanding. Why? It's a reasonable cheap mobile phone, it's 3G, has a mp3 player (although the 32 mb is short for listening music, you can buy the 256 mb transflash card), the display is great, the O.S. does not hang or appears to be non-responsive in any kind of situation. There's no Bluetooth or IrDa but the package cames with the USB cable. The battery life is short in 2.5G standards but in 3G mode is acceptable in this days. If you don't mind (as myself) charging your mobile phone in a 2 day basis and want to have a mp3 player and a 3G phone at a low price I doubt it if there's a better phone than this. Cheers everyone and a big salut from Portugal. Obrigado(thank you)

Great potential, but poor user interface, and a few design flaws, leave me wanting more! On paper this looks like a great phone (for the money). But two or three flaws really hurt it in practical use. I bought a clam shell so that I don't have to worry about locking the keys, shame Motorola don't offer that option. Whatever you do, the volume (ring mode) buttons and the camera buttons are active. So put it in your pocket, and the camera is forever taking pictures of the inside of your pocket (with the display turned on), waiting for you to confirm it, then finally timing out and going back to sleep. Or worse still you put it in silent mode, and it beeps when you try to change to mode, expecting you to confirm it. Also I'm not sure if Motorola or Three are to blame, but the OK, and back keys keep swapping places. So in one set of menus, the right hand button is "Select", and left is "Back", you type in a load of info, then all of a sudden the left one is "Send", and the right one is "Cancel". pressing the right one loses the information you've just entered. I'm sorry, but simple things like this shouldn't have made it into a production phone!

There's nothing specifically wrong with the phone as such, barring the odd one that goes pop, but that happens with all makes/models. The camera is pretty decent for a phone and the video calling works well. It has a built in MP3 player and upgradeable memory which puts it above several other phones in the same price range. The dual screens are also nice. However, it is not without it's letdowns. The battery life is, for want of a better word, laughable in a phone of this generation. It has no Bluetooth, meaning you cannot use any wireless handsfree or car kits, and some of the menu choices are badly thought out (such as ringtone assignments for example). That said, it's by no means a bad phone, and if you can live without wireless handsfree and being able to leave your charger at home when you go away for a weekend, it's not a bad buy for the price. To any of the "lovers" who defend this phone with teeth bared when someone points out it's drawbacks, bear in mind that to some people these drawbacks mean more than others. I personally like the phone, but I can see why some people think it is lacking.

REPLY TO JAMIE Hi Jamie, Load up your software from the cd that should have been included with your phone onto the computer. plug in your phone to the computer using the usb cord. open up the phone software. Go to Multimedia, then to Explore Phone. It will give you step by step instructions on how to transfer songs etc to your phone. Basically a screen comes up that lets you select a location on your computer where your mp3s or pictures are saved, then you hit the 'send from computer to phone' icon in the middle of the screen, this will transfer it to your phone. Hope that helps Jamie. And your right, the manual is not very clear about alot of things!! :)

I've had this phone for two weeks, and I must say, whilst most of the features are fantstic, there are a couple of downsides that I do no like about this phone. A) If you download a sound or mp3 and assign it to a contact so that song plays when that person rings you. It will also play that song when they send you a text message. You CANNOT assign ringtones to people in your phonebook, then have the phone just do 1 beep for a text message. It will play the song for a call and text message. the only way you can get the phone to just do a standard beep or sound file for a text mesaage alert is to just have the standard boring ringtone that comes already standard on the phone. This defeats the purpose of being able to assign ringtones and sounds to different alerts!! B) In your messages folder, you CANNOT create new folders, for example you cannot create different message folders to put important messages in and another folder for family messages etc. It ALL goes into the ONE f older in the phone, so you have to flick thru all your messages to find the one your looking for rather than being able to seperate them like you can with most other phones, even older phones have the 'create new folder' capability!! This is the same with your Videos, Pictures and Sounds- They are all stored in the one folder for each item. If anyone knows how to get around any of these issues, then I'd love to know... I have contacted 'three' and they have told be I am right and you CANNOT do any of the above on the phones- I found it dissapointing.

This phone is excellent, trust me on this. Before buying the Motorola V975 I had an NEC e616 from the 'one stop phone shop' and although the phone had an excellent interface, the amount of limitations imposed on the phone by 3 were ludicrous, and to overcome them were complicated to say the least and in some cases impossible (I could list them here, but it would be better to refer you to an NEC e616 review and comments on forums) since I would never stop writing. Motorola V975: good size (advise you to buy a stubby aerial from ebay for only $2 to replace big aerial). Weight is heavy but which 3G phones aren't. Screen is small but very good screen resolution so pictures are sharp (NEC e616 has a big screen and take it from me, do not choose a phone just because is screen is bigger). No bluetooth/No infrared, again one of those limitations imposed by 3 to restrict transfers of music and files from friends (don't fret about this, you can come to some arrangement to have it downloaded via USB from your computer). Java applications are of course not straight forward to download since once again 3 imposes limitations in order to use their browser. Trust me on this, there are many ways to overcome this by just going to the web and obtaining the right info to overcome these issue (type in smart moto into google, and you will learn that it is an unofficial software used to tweak the Motorola and help you access things you couldn't normally do without having to go to 3 browser and waste money. Quality of MP3 is excellent but don't put too much emphasis on this when buying a phone, buy an mp3 player and stop wasting your phone's battery. Battery like most 3G phones do not last long, probably the major drawback on this phone. You have a 2 screens on the phone, a small one in the front and a bigger one inside, this is an excellent aesthetic touch but probably one of the main reasons the battery suffers so quickly. Interface is good, I have seen better but still good enough, probably easier for ex-motorola owners to adapt to. Camera and Video options are excellent but once again do not put too puch emphasis on these things when buying a phone, buy a digital camera. In summary the pros are: Size, looks, screen sharpness, good all round features and most importantly easily tweaked by unofficial software. Cons: Heavy, Battery, No bluetooth, No infrared, Not easy to download games and java applications without paying for them (but again this can be overcome) camera button is on the outside so can automatically swtich itself on if phone is places in tight pockets (not big drawback, can unlock phone/or individual features on phone). Best 3G phone bar the new Sony Ericsson which in my opinion are the best phone makers for the last 5 years.

My two (and only) problems are the battery life, which is NOT good, and the amount of heat it kicks out, especially during calls. I have not tried uploading Java games onto the phone with the USB cable yet, but if I got it to work on my old phone in the same way, I'm sure I can on this one! And I have to tell those who have said the phone only comes with 2mb of memory - it doesn't, it comes with 16mb (well, 17 and a bit mb's, actually).

Also to jonP and Kirsten, the phone actually has 16mb onboard memory. You obviously can't read or have the V980 which is on Vodafone! Why can't you lot who are moaning get a life. Don't buy the phone if it doesn't have all the features you want. On and Sid who left a review on the 26th March 2005. - READ THE MANUAL. You can set the date format to UK or US. Obviously being spoilt by Nokia phones has removed your common sense. And yes I have had about 6 different Nokia phones so know all about their features. And Brandon who reviewed it on the 18th March - you deserve everything you get in life. If you assume something then you have no one to blame but yourself, and the phone does actually come with a data cable! Right, moron bashing aside - The phone is great and does what it says in the manual. What more could you want?
