A supplementary, 96 x 32 monochrome screen on the outside of the cover displays incoming call information, signal strength, battery life, current time and more. The VGA camera lens and self-portait mirror is housed above this display. Up/down buttons are placed on the left side for volume control. A five-way selection button above the phone's dial pad is designed to control most of the phone's menus and functions. The phone's extending antenna is placed on the top right side of the unit. A 2.5mm headset jack is provided, as are ports for AC charging and USB data connectivity.

The V276's speakerphone makes it easy to converse without touching the handset-- a big plus for car users. Enhanced voice dialing supports voice-to-digit dialing and name recognition for speedy dialing of contacts. The V276's voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user's voice.
The V276's internal memory can be used to hold up to 500 contacts for quick access to email addresses and phone numbers. In addition to a five vibrating alerts, the phone supports 64-instrument polyphonic ringtones. The phone also allows you to assign ringtones to specific callers so you can know who's calling without having to look at the screen. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Verizon's Mobile Web service. Perhaps most importantly for users in rural areas, the V276 is a tri-mode phone, meaning it can operate on Verizon's digital network, as well as analog networks that serve many outlying areas. Lastly, the phone's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.
Messaging, Internet, and Tools
The V276's support for multimedia messaging means that text and photos can be sent with ease (Verizon messaging charges apply). When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. There's also a built-in web browser for Verizon Mobile Web downloads and mobile web browsing. Verizon's optional Mobile Web package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. You can check your e-mail, trade stocks online, compare prices while shopping, access flight information, get movie listings and find directions to the theater. 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.
Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the V276. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools. You can also personalize your handset with ringtone downloads and digital photo-sharing tools using the Get It Now service.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V276 including a voice memo recorder with up to two minutes of recording time, a calculator, a calendar and an alarm clock.
Imaging and Entertainment
Plenty of good times are built right into the V276. The phone's VGA camera supports resolution adjustment so you can choose the level of detail and memory space you want to use. Images can also be sent to your friends via MMS messaging, use them as a custom wallpaper, or use the phone's USB connection to transfer them to your PC. Embedded screensavers and full screen wallpapers are built-in so you can set up the V276 to suit your tastes. More graphics are available from Verizon's Get It Now service.
The V276 is BREW enabled, meaning it supports games written on the BREW platform. Games are also available via the Get It Now service.

I still like Verizon as a provider and when the opportunity came to upgrade phones(every two years for free with Verizon) I jumped on this one because:
A. It is a Motorola phone
B. It has a camera(although not the best in the business)and a color display
C. It was free to me
Imagine my surprise when I found the reception quality far exceeded my expectaions. I don't drop calls anymore, the voice quality is excellent, and I just love the speakerphone function.
It is easy to use, program, and works better than I expected. I even recommended it to my girlfriend as her contract is expiring and we are both on the Verizon IN deal. We have a long distance relationship and with two V276 phones, I think our airtime conversations will be greatly improved.
As I am not a techno junkie, I stayed away from paying extra for the Motorola E815. Although, the E815 did look and sound pretty cool from the description. But, it would have been money out of my pocket and I just wanted a phone with a camera. So, if you want to spend the extra dough, go with the E815. If you want to go with the lower end, but still high quality phone, buy the V276.
Anyone who has Verizon service knows the lengths you have to go through to replace a damaged or defective phone! It is a very costly and frustrating process. That being said, it is important for Verizon customers to pick durable, high quality phones rather than whatever is in style.
I am VERY hard on cellphones... I drop mine nearly every day and after a year this phone still works perfectly! Its not as cool as a Razr, but I am very impressed with the durability!!!
What I will say - the phone has EXCELLENT reception and voice clarity compared to her old verizon motorola phone.
Verizon, despite all their commercials, has pretty limited coverage in some areas, including at my mother's house in SouthEastern Michigan - right smack dab in the middle of a major city with cell phone towers everywhere. All other verizon phones do not work there either, or drop calls after 30 or 60 seconds. (Including my old Audiovox verizon phone, and those of many friends and family who have visited.) This one works just fine.
My mother's hearing is going, and she can actually understand most of the stuff that is said on it. So, that is all good.
I'm thinking of getting one too, so I can be at her house and still make cell phone calls. I'm a little wary of the reviews that say other features are hard to use - but most of my phones were hard to figure out at first...
All I really want out of a cell phone is one that works really, really well where I can't get the maximum number of bars. Most phones seem to just really poor in those situations. So, having "great menu features" seems pretty moot. These bad phones are like speaking into a bad teleconference phone that drops the first and last sylable of every thing said - and both people can't talk at the same time like on a land line phone. Once this people figure out how to make phones that don't do that, I'll be happy. So far, this Motorola V276 seems better than others I've used.
Since joining Verizon and getting the V276, I have had my screen freeze twice and my antenna completely snap off, which is weird because I only use it when I start to lose reception. Every night I recharge my phone, mostly because I have to or else the battery will be dead in the morning because it doesn't last more than 12 hours. On SEVERAL occasions (maybe 30??) I have taken my phone from the charger in the morning noticing that the screen showed it as being completely charged and within an hour have the phone die on me because the battery went dead. On top of that, I have taken a total of 4 pictures and can only download 3 songs because my free space is completely taken up. Why do I not just delete stuff? Well, Verizon/Motorola were curtious enough to give me 30+ pictures and 10+ ringtones that cannot be deleted out of the phone. I have taken it to a Verizon Service provider (to fix the antenna that broke) and asked them to delete the pictures and they told me that they couldn't. So now I have to either delete songs I have downloaded to add more or delete pictures I have taken to add more. Honestly, I wish I would've paid money for a better phone and not just agreed to this crappy free one. I absolutely hate it and do not recommend it to anybody. I know Motorola can make good phones because I used to have one with Nextel.
I hope this review will help out another everyday consumer.
