Learn more about the pink RAZR V3c from Verizon Wireless.
At .6 inches thick, the RAZR V3c is just slightly thicker than the original RAZR. The RAZR V3c's design takes the standard clamshell form factor to the next level with an impressive, fully-anodized aluminum construction. A large 176 x 220 color display with 65,000 colors dominates the inside of the top cover. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 80 full-color display that can display caller ID pictures, time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The 1.3 megapixel camera lens is housed above this display. Up/down buttons are placed on the left side for volume control. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's backlit control pad, which is precision cut from a single sheet of nickel-plated copper alloy. A charging port and USB data cable port is placed on the bottom of the phone. The RAZR V3c also features 30 MB of embedded memory for storing pictures, videos and downloaded V Cast content. Note that the phone does not have a 2.5mm headset jack.
The RAZR V3c's internal phone book can hold up to 1000 contacts while the phone's picture ID system allows you to assign pictures to your most common callers. It also 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 Wireless' Get It Now service. For times when you want to be discreet, there's a vibrating alert. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear while voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. Speaker-independent technology allows any speaker to dial numbers with the voice dialing system. And because the RAZR V3c is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation.
Messaging, Internet, and Tools
The RAZR V3c is a messaging and wireless Internet powerhouse. Support is built in for sending and receiving pictures, text, graphics, sound and video via messages. When used in combination with the phone's built-in still and video 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 and view your favorite web content on your phone. You can 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.
With support for the EV-DO high-speed data standard, the RAZR V3c is fully compatible with Verizon's V Cast service. With V Cast, you can download and stream high-quality video. Need news and weather? Get the latest Accuweather forecast delivered right to your handset, or stream CNN news headlines. ESPN sports updates, entertainment news from E!, and even Sesame Street content for the kids, are all available. V Cast also serves as a portal for enhanced 3D games, allowing you to have more fun with a new breed of realistic titles.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the RAZR V3c including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar and an alarm clock. The phone supports the SyncML PC synchronization standard, which can be used with Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools PC application to manage and synchronize contacts, calendar and other data with your PC.
Imaging and Entertainment
The RAZR V3c's 1.3 megapixel camera bridges the gap between phones and quality digital cameras. The camera is also designed to capture video, and there are night and self-timer functions. Embedded animated screensavers and full screen wallpapers are built-in so you can set up the RAZR V3c to suit your tastes. The RAZR V3c supports V Cast 3D games, as well as other 2D-based games, which are available from Verizon's Get It Now service.
The Motorola RAZR V3c weighs 3.49 ounces and measures 3.90 x 2.10 x .60 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.33 hours of digital talk time, and up to 215 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the CDMA 850/CDMA 1900 frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.
Note: The RAZR V3c supports the wireless headset and handsfree Bluetooth profiles. It does not support Bluetooth object transfer (OBEX) profiles.

Also, the phone's key pad DOES NOT glow pink. In the ads and pictures it looks like it does, but nope. It's a blue backlight just like all the other RAZR phones. That's really not that big a deal, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
The camera is nice-- much better than any other I've had on any of my phones. I like the feature that allows you to close the phone and see yourself in the window while taking a picture. The video features are also great.
I bought the matching bluetooth headset, and this is my FAVORITE part. All I have to do is say call whoever, and it dials. I didn't have to program voice recognition or anything. I LOVE that.
The only disappointing thing is that you don't have the flexibility to change the color scheme. There's a Verizon red border and you can't get rid of it or customize to match your wall paper. Granted that's not a big deal, but it sure would be nice.
Other than that, it's a fabulous phone and I'm loving being Pretty In Pink! :)
1. Changing display themes does not get rid of the RED Verizon bar across the top and bottom of the display.
2. Banner length too short - Can't fit my first and last name.
3. No Memo space in the contact list.
4. No Work2 phone number space in the contact list.
5. Groups (Business, Personal, Friends, Family, etc.) each only hold 10(!) names. Only ten!!! I don't know about anyone else, but I know a lot more than 10 people to put in a business category and LOTS more than 10 friends and more than 10 family. My KIDS each know more than 10 people to put in each of their Friends categories!
6. The pictures loaded on the phone for wallpaper and screensavers are locked, can't be deleted individually, and you have to delete all of them BEFORE you start adding other pictures or you end up with them cluttering up your gallery forever.
7. The ringtones loaded on this phone suck eggs, and Verizon's Get It Now site doesn't have any others to choose from for this phone. Third-party websites don't seem to support this carrier and phone combo, yet, either, so I'm stuck with the sucky ringtones.
So, that's my laundry list of things that are bad about the operating system on this phone after having it for two days. I have to admit I was lured by the uber-coolness of the phone and a cut-rate on the purchase price and the fact that it's Pink!
Regarding the previous post about the ringtones..yes, the default ones suck but you can add your own using the Motorola Phone Tools software (sold separately). If you do use the MPT, be sure to overwrite the "modems.pac" file that can be downloaded from a variety of online forums (ie - Use Google and search for "motorola razr v3c modems.pac"). The pac file enables the full suite of functions so you can copy & edit mp3, pictures, & phonebook to your phone using your computer (ie - no need to pay extra to use Verizon's Get It Now ringtones).
DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE. After mail-in rebate, you can get this phone for less than $100 & new 2-year contract.
The 10 contacts per group limitation is VERY ANNOYING. Why in the world would they ever limit the phonebook in this manner? Too much emphasis on the "cool" stuff and not enough on the basics of a phone (ie - phonebook). Unfortunately, I think they intended these as "distribution groups", not contact categories.
I think Verizon only lobbied to carry this phone because of the popularity of the RAZR on GSM networks such as T-Mobile and Cingular. Note that the GSM networks don't require an external antenna and also those phones are typically smaller and lighter as well.
Which brings me to my final point-this RAZR V3c isn't even the same size as the GSM RAZR, it's larger and heavier! So, while this phone says "RAZR" it's really a different phone than the slim, light and tiny GSM RAZR that is so popular everywhere.
The only downer I have experienced with the pink razr is not the phone itself but to pink bluetooth motorola headset that matches it. While it looks cool the maximum volume is too low, even with other verizon customers.
