Detailed review
I bought this phone last week from the Motorola website. it arrived a few days ago and wasn't disappointed. It was a great hone if you considered the price, but today when I got a call from someone and the ear piece wouldn't work. the speaker did though. Other than this manufacturer defect the phone is pretty good. Also the spec sheet on the website is wrong... this phone doesn't have flash for the camera.
