Product Description

Motorola delivers Bluetooth, a megapixel camera, video messaging, TransFlash memory expansion and more in this flagship phone. Designed for Verizon Wireless users, all the tools and power a mobile warrior needs are packed into this premium tri-band clamshell.


Click the image to get a closer look at the v710's features.
The V710's overall shape is similar in design to Motorola's high-end GSM phone, the V600. The V710 ups the ante in many areas, however. The internal 2.2-inch 176 x 220 screen sports more colors (262,000 vs. 65,000) than the V600. The full-color, 98 x 67 supplementary external display is another step-up feature from the V600. This screen displays incoming call information, picture caller ID, camera self portraits, signal strength, battery life, current time and more. The 1.2 Megapixels camera lens and LED flash is housed above this display. An extendable stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the phone. A TransFlash memory slot is located next to the antenna. A standard 2.5mm stereo headset jack is present, as is a combined charging/USB data port. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad.

Calling Features
The V710 boasts some powerful calling functions that make it a perfect part of a mobile office. The office-quality 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 V710s voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user's voice. Because the V710 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation.

The V710's 10 MB of internal memory can be used to hold up to 500 contacts for quick access to email addresses and phone numbers. The phone lets you easily assign pictures to your most common callers. In addition to vibrating alerts, the phone supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Verizon's Mobile Web service. The V710's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The V710 is a mobile messaging, email and Internet powerhouse. An included email client supports POP3, SMTP and IMAP4 email standards (when used with optional Verizon data service). The V710's support for multimedia messaging means that text, photos, video and audio 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 V710. 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 V710 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar and an alarm clock. And you can use the V710's Bluetooth capability to set up a wireless link with your favorite Bluetooth headset accessory.

Imaging and Entertainment
Plenty of good times are built right into this handset, and that fun is expandable thanks to the V710's TransFlash memory expansion slot. The slot supports an additional 128 MB of memory in addition to the phone's embedded 10 MB of memory. The V710's 1.2 megapixels camera with flash bridges the gap between phones and quality digital cameras. Support for up to 3 minutes of video capture is also included. An MP3 player lets you load up your favorite tunes and use the phone as a portable jukebox. Embedded animated screensavers and full screen wallpapers are built-in so you can set up the V710 to suit your tastes.

The V710 is BREW enabled, meaning it supports games written on the BREW platform. Games are available via the Get It Now service.

The speaker phone is very good, sounds good and loud.
Jay P
On the downside, Verizon doesn't currently have a plan that allows you to avoid sending pictures off your phone without paying them.
Eric Bieschke
The camera is OK and doesn't give you the picture quality a 1.2 megapixel should.

Verified Purchase
Through my employer, I get a 22% discount on Verizon plans and equipment, so I really wanted this to work out. I wanted a phone that could sync my contacts, calendar, and ToDo list, so that I can ditch my PDA. A camera would be nice, and I would like to listen to FM radio for the morning commute and MP3s for the evening commute. I can get an FM radio headset that works with the V710, so I thought that I had found my solution.

The Motorola V710 is available only through Verizon, I believe. Unfortunately, as you may have read, Verizon has disabled many of this phones features, except when you "Get It Now" through one of Verizon's many additional charge services. I received an email from them acknowledging Bluetooth capability is a specialized function of this handset, not a feature of Verizon wireless phone service. They promised that they are reviewing the possibility of providing a software update for the V710 that will re-enable the file transfer capability. They claim to be working to provide a suitable solution, however, they further acknowledge that their version of the Motorola V710 software removes the ability to transfer audio files such as MP3 files from the T-flash memory card to your wireless phone. While you will still be able to listen to MP3 files, you will not be able to transfer them directly to your handset. In other words you can listen to MP3 files, but we have removed any method of getting them into the phone except buying them from Verizon $$.

I was born at night, but not last night. I have read that there is a class action suit against Verizon for disabling phone features so that they can gouge customers with extra charges. Maybe the pending litigation has something to do with their new promises to re-enable the features.

I went through three or four Motorola 270-C's waiting for a new CDMA Verizon Bluetooth-enabled phone to come out. I bought this one. As far as phones go, there's not much to complain about...Motorola makes a great phone. The v710 has the best reception and sound quality I've found in a cell phone.

That being said, I'm sure the reason this "high-end" phone is now inexpensive is Verizon's miscalculation when they disabled most of the v710's Bluetooth capabilities. Currently, there's a lawsuit pending against Verizon for this very reason. I see Verizon is now giving away a free Bluetooth headset with the v710 to make you focus on what their Bluetooth will do, because it won't OBEX (object transfer) ...or much else. And, if you want a ringtone or music or anything on this phone, you have to Buy It Now from Verizon. Not me. Ever.

I am one of those that gets a new cell phone every year so I have to have the latest and greatest. I also require the phone to do a little bit more than just simply allow me to make calls, although that is the most important thing.

Let me start off by saying that this phone is the best phone I have ever owned, hands down. Yeah some people on here are crying about how the Bluetooth is "crippled" or that the battery life isn't all that great but I haven't had a problem with either. As far as BT is concerned I only use the headset function so the rest doesn't matter to me. I bought a transflash card for $25 with the phone and use that to transfer songs and pictures, real easy. The battery life is great. I can go four days in between charges even when playing music, taking pictures and talking on it all the time. No other phone I owned had a battery that lasted that long. Learn how to "condition" your battery people, it will make it last so much longer.

As everyone has said the picture quality leaves a lot to be desired but hey, it's a camera-PHONE what did you expect? It's great for snapping shots when you just don't have your digital camera around (like if you get into a fender bender or something). The internal display, on the other hand, is amazing! This is my third color phone and it is by far the best display ever, so vivid and crisp. I actually uploaded high quality pics from my computer via the transflash card and use that for my Picture Caller ID and the display is wonderful!

The media player is great with the 128mb memory card. I am able to store more than 30 songs on it and the sound quality of the external speaker is excellent.

- Excellent reception

- Easy to navigate menus

- Excellent speakerphone

- Excellent voice command system

- Bluetooth from Verizon!!!


- Size is a little large

- Manual doesn't explain several menu options

I've only had the phone a little more than one week, but I'm extremely happy with it so far. First, I'm ecstatic that Verizon has a bluetooth enabled phone (that's not a PDA). And I only wanted the bluetooth for the headset feature, so I have no complaints about it being "crippled".

I traded up from an Audiovox 8900 that was an OK phone. The menus from Motorola are far better, and the reception--while not bad at all on the Audiovox--is amazing on the Motorola. In places where the Audiovox had no signal, I get 1-2 bars on the Motorola.

Also, I think the voice command system that requires no training works perfectly. I've had no problems whatsoever. I didn't choose the phone for this feature, but it's turned out to be one of my favorites.

As for the battery life, it's about what I expected and have seen from other similar phones. Today, I used the phone for 3 calls totaling 2.5 hours before the battery indicator even dropped from "full charge". I made several more calls which dropped the battery to about 50% before I bothered to charge it.

I've also been very pleased with Verizon reception and service for the 10 months I've used them. They replaced my Audiovox twice with no hassle. (Once the phone kept telling me to power cycle and wouldn't do anything else. The second time, the headset jack deteriorated, so that you couldn't touch the phone without setting off a static storm.
