I have a Motorola W510 mobile phone on Vodafone. To start off with I will mention that I only use my phone for calling and texting, so I can give very little details of the other functions.
I have had this phone for over a year now, and it had done most of what I have needed it to do, however there are a few very major flaws with this phone.
When I got the phone I couldn't get voicemail to work. Initially I was unemployed, so this was not a problem, however I then got a job in a library, and am unable to have my phone with me all the time, so I really needed to get the voicemail working. I tried several times to sort it out, and phoned vodafone to try and get them to sort it out. Still no voicemail. Eventually I took it into a vodafone shop, handed it over and asked the people in the shop to do it. It took 3 people over half an hour including phonecalls to both vodafone and motorola to get it set up, leading me to conclude that it is NOT easy to set up voicemail on this phone!
The other major gripe I have with this phone is with charging it without the mains charger. I have recently lost my mains charger, however I have a freeloader charger, which is supposed to charge most things. It doesn't charge my phone at all. The phone came with a USB cable, and according to information on the phone and reviews I have found on the internet it is supposed to charge on the USB cable. I have plugged it into my computer, and the computer recognises the phone, but it does not charge. I have tried plugging it inth the mains and the car via adapters I have that enable you to plug USB devices into these sockets, and still it does not charge. So now I am left with a phone I cannot charge, and the prospect of having to buy a new charger, however I am loathed to buy anything other than a genuine Motorola charger for this phone, for fear of it not charging, which will be expensive.
Other than this, the experiences with this phone have been fine, although as I have said I do not use it to its full potential. The camera I have used a few times, and it is quite adequate for pictures to be displayed on the screen, the calculator is fine and the alarm clock is great, as you are allowed at least 5 different alarm times. I have used it successfully throughout Europe, however have not taken it further afield than that. All these functions are going to be pretty useless though if I cannot get any power into the thing!
