The v100 won me over when my old phone finally died (river walking and me forgetting to leave my phone at home do not mix well!) and I discovered how fab the V100 was. As I send loads of text messages and check my email on WAP daily, the v100 seemed a perfect choice. It's easy to use, text messaging is fast and easy, and the large screen display makes playing games, writing messages, surfing the net and just general navigation much easier. Many people have said that the hands free is irritating, but all you need it a cord storage/retractor thing to stop the cord from tangling up when not in use. It's great for jogging or driving and the holster is ... Read the complete review

When I first heard of this phone I didn't pay much attention because it was a Motorola phone and I didn't trust Motorola at that time, after having a m3788 and having a bad time with that, there was also the fact that it was very highly priced at £129.99 so I ignored it for a long time. For some reason I have the knack of buying phone that look good but don't have any features. Before I went out and bought this phone I had a siemens c25, which I was happy with, until it got stolen so i claimed on the insurance and i had £50 to spend on a new phone. I weighed up my options and decided on this phone and by the looks of it I made the right choice. ... Read the complete review

I bought my Motorola v1.00 about 3 months ago, mainly because I spend a lot of my time sending SMS messages - but then, doesn't every mobile phone owner? The first month, everything was great. It was so easy to use, I was sending 10-12 messages a day using the keypad. However, I found myself rarely making calls in public due mainly to that annoying pink hands-free thing you are FORCED to use. At least with a normal phone you have a choice whether to use the hands-free or not! The situation now is that I haven't topped it up for 2 weeks, in which time I've used 50p of the £1.35 in credit because I just can't be bothered anymore. Its too ... Read the complete review

We are reluctant to call this device a phone because it clearly has no microphone or speaker and the traditional numerical keyboard is absent. Instead, you open up the case, a bit like a ladies’ compact and you see a larger-than-normal screen and a miniature QWERTY-style keyboard. Have no doubts - this device is aimed squarely at the serial texter. Ease of use It is immediately obvious which population group is the intended user of the Vbox . The gaudy colours that are available - three of them semi-transparent like an Apple iMac - show that this is not a business toy and that it is intended for kids. So it has to be easy to use, although modern ... Read the complete review

Did you know that in recent studies into the use of e-mails and SMS messaging by children found that their use of messaging shorthand, such as, ‘how R U?’ is having a marked effect on their grammar and comprehension of the English language? Those little smiley faces that people put in at the end of sentences are also starting to appear in exercise books nationwide. In a bid to help English teachers and schools everywhere Motorola have launched the V100. Basically, it’s a mobile phone with a PDA style case and full QWERTY keyboard so you can type text messages and e-mails without needing extreme finger dexterity. Motorola’s opted for that ...
