The RAZR V3'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 T-Mobile's t-zones service. There's even an included application, MotoMixer, that lets you mix your own ringtones. 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.
Because the RAZR V3 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation.
Messaging, Internet and Tools
The RAZR V3 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. Instant messaging is also supported (T-Mobile messaging charges apply) and the phone ships with a built-in email client with support for POP3, IMAP4 and SMTP protocols.
Thin is in: The RAZR's keypad is precision cut from a single sheet of nickel-plated copper alloy. See it in action.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the RAZR V3 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator with currency converter, a calendar and an alarm clock. Use the phone's Bluetooth capability to set up a wireless link with a Bluetooth accessory or connect to a computer or hand-held device to exchange and synchronize data. The phone also supports the SyncML PC synchronization standard, 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
With 5 MB of internal memory storage, the RAZR V3 shines in the entertainment department. The phone's VGA camera features a 4x zoom, image quality options, and an auto-timer so you can be in your pictures, too. Capture stills and then send them to your friends via MMS messaging or email, or to your PC via USB or Bluetooth. The phone is capable of MPEG4 video playback when you receive a video message, or if you upload video to the phone via USB or Bluetooth. The RAZR V3 also supports custom graphics for wallpapers so you can dress up the phone to suit your fancy.
Support for gaming is built into the phone and games are available for download via the T-Mobile t-zones service.
Operating the RAZR Battery Door
The RAZR V3's battery cover is designed to have a very tight fit with the phone case. You may need to use your fingernail or a very thin instrument to depress the small battery cover release button. When replacing the cover, make sure the cover securely snaps into place before operating the phone.
The Motorola RAZR V3 weighs 3.35 ounces and measures 3.86 x 2.09 x .54 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 6.67 hours of digital talk time, and up to 250 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.

Top Customer Reviews
1) The Phonebook application is a little...wonky. Some people have said you can't add more than one piece of contact info per contact, which is NOT true. You can, but its nearly hidden underneath the "MORE" function while editing the contact. However, its not convenient and you cannot add additional e-mail addresses or phone numbers to your contacts using the Phone Tools app...which is annoying, since T-Mobile charges $30-40 for the hardware/software bundle.
1a) It also takes forever to scroll through your Phonebook contacts. I thought it MIGHT be caused by having some SIM contacts, so I transfered all of them to phone memory. No dice. The scroll speed is untenable. Even my wife's Moto V330 is quicker. What gives? I had to create a voice prompt for almost every contact in my list.
2) Even at full blast, the volume just isn't loud enough. Plus, the "audio sweet spot" on the speaker is hard to keep next to your ear. If you are planning to get a Bluetooth headset and use that exclusively, this shouldn't keep you from getting the phone.
3) Compared to a Samsung V205, a Sony Ericsson P910i and Motorola's own V330, the RAZR gets poorer reception. The previous phones mentioned all get four bars at my house. The RAZR gets 2. This even after calling T-Mobile tech support for help. Their advice? "Keep turning the phone on and off and it will hopefully find another tower."
4) T-Mobile offers NO games for this phone yet. Given how high profile this form factor has become, I find this level of support to be somewhat poor. I know - you don't buy a phone for its games. But just to show how lacking T-Mobile's support is...the RAZR includes a demo for BeJeweled.Read more ›
I don't want a game. I don't want a camera. I only need one ring tone (different than everyone else).
So why did I get this phone? Because the reviews indicated that this was the best sounding cell phone on the market. Best sounding on both ends. It does do that but there is a price you pay.
The problem with the phone is probably the very reason you want to buy one... It's like holding a credit card up to your ear. It's not comfortable. Imaging taking a playing card and placing the edge so it will go right across the hole in the side of your head. Well that's how you do it.
You are "holding" this very thin thing like you would hold a playing card in one hand. A case helps a little but it still is uncomfortable to hold in your hands. You can completely forget putting this phone on your shoulder and using both hands to quickly do something else. Try to hold a playing card between your ear and your shoulder for more than a few seconds.
I don't think uncomfortable is really the word... maybe, unnatural.
I've tried all the Bluetooth Jabra's out there including the speaker phone. The BT800 works the best since the people I call don't like the sound of the other ones. Bluetooth really isn't up to speed yet. It takes a while to sync and with the V3 that means going through a handful of unnecessary menu items. For it to be a viable technology, you should be able to sync it without taking your eyes off the road.Read more ›
I am using this phone for last one week. I was very impressed the list of features, but was disappointed to find out many of them are not implemented well.
Cons -You have to dig deep into menu to turn on the bluetooth and once you enable blue tooth there is no way you can take your calls on the phone. In my prev sony T610 I use to get option and I caould even transfer to phone from bluetooth and to phone with just 2 clicks.
pros - Blue tooth works fine.
Camera - This camera is worst than my T610 which I regarded as marginal. Razr camera is use less as it is very sensitive to light and it does not takes acceptable pics in any light settings. Camera is useless.
Menu - Menu is not very intutive but once you know it is good. You have to spend fair amound of time to learn.
Search - I use to hate my T610 for it's search and I got the same here. You can search by only first word of name and then you have scroll down unlike other phone where you can type in multiple chars to narrow the search.
Phone Book - You cannot enter multiple phone numbers for single contact. You have to create multiple entries for the same person. Due to this you have to record different voice commads for each number of same person unlike T610 where I record only one for each person and then just say Cell/Work/Home appropriately.
Looks - I like the looks and screen is excelent.
Ring Tone - Best part is that you can use MP3 files as ring tones.
Last but not least - Limited memory no expansion slot
Conclusion - Don't pay for this phone. If you get it free then you can live with it. Not recomended for people using this phone to do business, for pleasure and style it's good.
Hope you all find this review helpfull
