Product Description

Amazon.com

Billed as an entry-level phone, the Motorola v190 is actually a feature rich handset with quad-band global coverage capability. A speakerphone, instant messaging, MP3 ringtones, dual displays, USB connectivity and gaming support are all here-- a significant step up from entry level phones of the past.

Design
The phone features a sleek clamshell design with a large 128 x 160 color display with 65,000 colors. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 32 monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. A stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the unit. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. Meanwhile, there's a USB-capable data port for data connectivity (the USB connector also supports charging), as well as a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets.

Calling Features
The V190 supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. You can also assign pictures and ringers to your most common callers. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone, and ringer and Picture ID functions let you assign ringtones and pictures to your most common callers.

For those time when you want to be silent and discreet, the V190 has a vibrate ringer mode. Plus, a built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names.

Messaging, Internet, and Tools
The V190 has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging and Internet connectivity. The phone features support Wireless Village instant messaging (carrier messaging charges may apply). There's also a built-in web browser for wireless downloads and mobile web browsing. Traditional text messaging, as well as picture and sound messaging are also supported by the phone. iTap text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V190 including a calculator, a calendar, and an alarm clock. The phone also supports the SyncML synchronization protocol, so you can sync it with your PC-based calendars and contacts.

Imaging and Entertainment
The V190's USB connectivity can be used to transfer pictures, sounds and graphics to the phone's memory from your PC. Screensavers, themes and wallpapers can be set to your tastes. And the phone is Java enabled, meaning it supports games and application downloads written on the Java platform.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola V190 weighs 3.46 ounces and measures 3.37 x 1.81 x .91 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 10.8 hours of digital talk time, and up to 542 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

It was indeed unlocked.

Doesn't matter the phone or the service, the area in which I live causes a lot of dropped calls.

This is an excellent basic phone.

the one i was sent was the silver not blue version but overall, i liked the phone and it was mainly due to the simplicity of the phone.

pros:

speakerphone

spacing of keys

inside screen

reception

battery life

cons:

outside display of the contact name and the word "calling" next to it.... it seems redundant to have that.

can only have individual ringtones if on the phone itself and not on SIM card.

simple functions difficult to find without the help of manual.

the cons are minor if you don't mind a few gliches but i recommend this phone for those who want a simple phone with quality over quantity.

I bought this phone mainly to use in Italy for extended visits and plan to get an Italian SIM card. The phone itself works well (I tend to like Motorola phones -- others may not) and the quad band capability should ensure compatibility with European wireless networks.

One big selling point of this phone was Amazon's claim that it was unlocked. However, after trying two SIM cards from provides other than AT&T/Cingular (one from an Italian provider and one from a Hong Kong provider) the phone is quite definitely LOCKED as it asks for a subsidy code when you boot up with a non-AT&T SIM card. So I will likely have to fork over another 15-20$ to get a code to unlock it from a third party.

I think others have had similar problems --- as the phone was supposedly sold directly by Amazon (but I am sure they are using a third-party supplier), my suggestion to their quality control department is to pay a little more serious attention to this issue of selling locked phones as being "unlocked".

One other thing -- it appears one may need to buy the software necessary to use computer-communication features on this phone (but I have not done a deep search on the Web to see if the software can be found for free --- what I know is my XP-system does not have a device driver to mount the phone and the phone manual indicates one needs to purchase such software).

The phone was not unlocked as advertised, and the IMEI unlock code could not be found, making it impossible to use the unit. Returned after a week of frustration -- unclear how the vendor intends to profit by paying to ship phones around the country.

This is an excellent basic phone. No complaints whatever.
Not many bells or whistles, but does averything that you want
a phone to do. Very good sound quality. Screen very legible . Comes with a good selection of standard utilities that do everything that I want a phone to do, and a lot of things for which I have no use on a phone(sending faxes, internet browsing, etc). The phone has been extremely reliable, no problems whatever and has worked perfectly at all times.

This is a phone that works on the GSM system. There is no problem with GSM service anywhere in Canada where I live. European SIM cards for it are readily available, which allow for very economical local use in Europe thus avoiding very expensive roaming charges. I have had no problems with GSM service when I am in the USA, but can only speak for the northeastern USA.

This is a mobile GSM phone It does not have bluetooth, it does not
have a camera. It is not an MP3 player. But it is extremely good at the basic function of any telephone : sending and receiving phone calls. Additionally, it has excellent sound quality and has been 100% reliable.
As far as I am concerned, for what I want a mobile phone for, it has
turned out to be a most economical and an excellent choice. Highly
recommended.

This phone was advertised as "Unlocked". When they arrived, I put my sim chip in and when I powered the phone to use it I was asked for a "code" to use the phone. After talking to customer service I was told this phone was not "Unlocked" and I had to return them.

Ordered the UNLOCKED V190 in black, Amazon sent me a LOCKED V190 in SILVER. The label on the box said it was an unlocked black V190, but it seems the order processors at Amazon did not open it to verify if it indeed was a black unlocked V190. There was a silver locked V190 inside.
Thus, I returned it and got a refund.
If you order this phone, be advised that you may get the wrong one.

I rate two thumbs down on this one.

Got the phone. It was indeed unlocked.
But it was programmed as Cingular, which was not stated in the sales add.
Can not use any of my cell service features because it is Cingular.
But it works for the basic stuff, so I can not complain.
For some odd reason, it has a low sensitivity (shows low signal compared with TMobile phone at same location). But otherwise I like the phone.
Please include type of programming in sales add, so people can decide.
