Phone's O/S is slow, "backflip" keyboard awkward, and Data Plan triggered.
The operating system on this phone is extremely slow compared to an iPhone 3gs. Futhermore its "backflip" hard keyboard design is very awkward and not nearly as practical to use as a phone with slide-out hard keyboard. My carrier is AT&T. I had purchased the unlocked phone outright rather than via a contract with AT&T. I planned to use the phone primarily for talking and texting, with any Internet use only through its WiFi feature rather than through a 3G network. However, as soon as I installed my SIM card, the phone automatically began undating its operating system through the 3G network, which triggered AT&T adding a $30/month Data Plan to my service without my knowledge or consent. I promptly returned the phone for a refund and had AT&T remove the unwanted Data Plan. If I had planned on subscribing to a Data Plan, I would have purchased a subsidized phone under contract with AT&T. Buying the phone outright and still getting stuck with a Data Plan is a no-win situation!Read full review

Backflip is underrated!Camera is great!ATT may force user to buy data plan.
This review is for the Motorola Backflip MB300 US model. A lot of reviews here on eBay are for a different phone than the one shown.
Update:9-20-11. This phone worked perfectly in Europe! It recognized every network in the UK and France. (here is a phone screen shot I made in Paris http://flic.kr/p/axtKhR) I used free WiFi for email and Facebook.
Update: 7-24-11. I have gotten a lot of questions regarding using this phone without a data plan. I have owned this phone since November 2010 and still do not have a data plan. I access data thru WiFi. Here is a screen-shot of my account on ATT, showing where I have opted-out of a data plan (which I did when I owned a Palm Treo): http://flic.kr/p/a6M4zW
Some have told me that ATT will not give them this choice and I dont have the answer why they restrict who can and cant opt-out of data. Before you buy one, log in to your ATT account and see if you can check the data opt-out box. If you can, then you can own this phone without a data plan.
This is my first Android phone. I bought it 11-11-10 for $135. I updated it to Android 2.1, then rooted it, then installed Titanium Backup, and I froze 34 ATT pre-installed apps including Motoblur (NOTE,WILL NOT UNFREEZE) and the phone is so much faster. I also downloaded APNdroid to turn off 3G. I do not have a Data plan; I use WiFi instead. Then I exported all of my Outlook and Facebook contacts to Gmail and the phone syncd them all. I also downloaded TaskKiller and CacheCleaner to clear the clutter after a lot of use to keep it speedy. It is great as a phone and a PDA. The battery lasts two days for me with occasional use. The 2.1 Eclair update gave it Speech to Text, so I can send text messages without typing,(in a quiet environment). It works very well. But my favorite thing about it is the fact that when you flip the phone open, the camera switches sides. Open it halfway, and you can hold it overhead and take pictures above the crowd and still see what you are getting. Or hold it upside down and near the ground and take street level shots. My friends would see images that I posted and ask if I laid down in the street just to take the picture. I also love the clock mode that stays on at night when its charging. If you love sharing YouTube vids, open it in tabletop mode (like clock mode) and you can play YouTube videos to amuse everyone without holding the phone. This phone is great! Its not for power users who want to play graphic-intense video games, but its great for the casual user. I am going to buy another one to practice loading custom ROMs on. I already downloaded the developers kit and Android desktop software to maybe write my own ROM. By one on ebay and kiss those contracts goodbye!

Okay phone, wasnt able to use it because of the unlock code
Honestly, I just got this phone and its okay. I havent been able to actually use it because it's still locked. I am part of T-Mobile and this is an AT&T phone. There was no code to unlock it, so it was not usable. However the touch screen and keyboard looks good. Its big because the keyboard goes on the back. Has a nice camera. Lets you go on facebook and different sites easily. Keyboard is big and easy to read. Has light up letters. Nice touch screen. It might be a little annoying at times. I guess it all depends on the type of person you are. I wish that I could have actually been able to use this phone so i could leave a better review. Im just trying to help you out by saying all the advantages of it.

Nice Phone for explorers.
Got brand new phone. Works great. Sometimes needs' time while opening the appls.
Get crazy while charging and using. When you unplug it works great again. The phone is worth buying if you like exploring new features of your phone. As it has adorably so many things:).
One bad thing you cant take photos without memory micro card. As it's very cheap it's not a problem at all.
