What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

1. Better voice reception in my area (carrier issue). 2. Longer battery life than my previous iphone 3. Better connectivity with my office software.
I really like this phone. It took a little extra time to set it up fully - two days. Once I had it set up, it is works like a charm. For functionality, this phone is great. For the basis needs: phone, email, tasks lists, maps, google search, voice to text, etc... it is easy and user friendly. It is also fun to use. Lot of ways to customize the functions. I do not play a lot of games, no comment there.
1. Looks well made and durable. Gorilla glass with Kevlar Back.
2. Size is comparable to iphone 4. Not too big, not too small. Good for the pocket.
3. Screen size is great. Bigger than iphone 4 or 5.
4. All my favorite iphone apps are on Google Play - Pulse, Zite, Evernote, Onenote. You Version.
5. The widgets are extremely functional.
6. Voicemail is better than iphone. More intuitive.
7. Audio is good. More than adequate.
8. The Motorola software add-ons seem to be useful. I don't have any experience with other handsets.
9. I like having a standard micro USB connection. The iphone cord issue is a significant bummer.
My only concerns:
1. the screen is not as clear as the iphone. Not a big issue for me... I don't like reading on a small devise.
2. will I have enough memory? Probably. I don't have a ton of extraneous apps. Added a micro SD for media.
Summary: I am very happy with this purchase. Great price. All the reviews that I have read are accurate and reliable. You can trust their advise.
Good luck. Lots of excellent choices out there.
The battery life so far has been good. It doesn't hold a charge like the RAZR MAXX but it will keep a charge all day if you aren't watching videos with it. I took it out for a run with me on Saturday morning, a long 2 hour run, and it was running a gps tracking app as well as playing music for two hours straight and it barely put a dent in the battery. Never had to put it on the charger to get through the day.
As far as pictures, in my opinion, if you want perfection then go buy a camera. This is a smart phone.
CONS: Average battery life (though not bad), off button location
I just upgraded to this from my Droid X (which is not a bad phone, either). First of all, when I saw that this phone was $50 to $150 less than many other new smartphones on the market I thought there was a significant trade-off. Well, after about 24 hours of VERY heavy usage and research I have yet to find one other than the lack of HDMI output--which I don't use. The design is very nice and the quality of the screen is beautiful. It took a little while getting used to the new OS features and settings, but only because I was coming off an older phone with Android v. 3. I love the ability to multi-task on this, by selecting from multiple screens, and that Chrome is installed as the default browser. Also, if you have an old X or Razr, your cords will work with this phone. Some of you may have known that, I was very happy to learn it. The camera is MUCH easier to use than the one on the X. There isn't as much of a lag when snapping photos, and the quality is pretty good for a smartphone. C'mon! If you want poster quality, get a digital camera! I have bluetooth in my car and the set-up on this phone was a breeze. No complaints on call quality either.
The only bad things I can say are about the battery (only slightly better than most smartphones, definitely not a deal-killer) and the location of the on/off button above the volume control. Also, there is no 'home' key for taking you back to the main home screen like X had (only a minor personal annoyance). The pre-installed ringtones are pretty terrible, but this is a non-issue as there are plenty of free alternatives on the Android market.
Bottom line: A great phone for anyone looking to upgrade, or just starting out in the smartphone sphere.
Cons: The battery life is not as good as the Maxx, but destroys the standard Razr.
Pros: All the great things the Razr Maxx can do, but in a smaller package while maintaining the same screen size.
Bottom line: Biggest bang for the buck on the market!
There strength is reception and all calls are crystal clear. Haven't had a drop call yet.
I didn't want a behemoth phone to carry around. This phone is just the right size. Fits in your palm, fits in your pocket ,and the price fits my budget. I'm sure some will have it free by Black Friday. The battery life is great, streamed pandora for 3 hours and I'm still at 73%. But that is really dependent on your proximity to towers, but it's much better than my previous Droid Pro. it would be dead now, and it was only a 3g phone. This phone includes a full version of Chrome, and it syncs bookmarks between it and your home and work computers. I love it. Download a flashlight app and you will be able to light up your front yard. This puppy is bright. The picture quality is amazing. The customization is great. It has what they call "smartactions", I call them triggers. I programmed it to start Pandora, when it connects to my car over Bluetooth. There are many triggers you can program. Button placement is good, it feels good in the hand, and love the fact it is splash proof. Oh, and the navigation is awsome, sounds like a real person with this version.
Another great new feature is talk and surf at the same time, something you couldn't do with older phones unless you were on AT&T. Now I can look up stuff on the internet will I'm talking to someone.
