Really a great phone for the price!
This is really a great phone for the price. Especially for teens or tweens. The phone itself has a crystal clear sound and you can definitely tell that the ring tone is being delivered through a media player. Functionality is awesome and easy to understand. Resolution on screen is very clear and even the camera (despite being labeled as 1 - 2 mp) produces nice quality pics. The only thing I would caution is to look at the color options in person. The black/purple combo wasn't quite as deep purple as it looked in pictures. In fact, the purple is about the same color purple as the "Sign Out" appears next to your user name when logged into ebay (a little pinkish-purple). But overall, this is a really awesome phone for the price. You can usually find one on ebay right around the $100 mark if you don't want to do a contract renewal to get Verizon's usual price of $59.99 - $79.99 price.Read full review

I bought this because:
* Verizon, in their infinite wisdom, no longer carries it and their "Feature" phones are crap
* I loved it when I had it.
* I'd never bought a case and I dropped this dang thing so much I scrambled its little brains.
* I looked on eBay for a good seller, found one and got the phone.
* I am now enjoying the benefits of fast & easy texting, clear sound, good volume, pocket size, slide-out Qwerty keyboard,touch dial & screen, decent camera, SD card option and great reception on calls. It can pocket dial, but that problem kinda worked itself out on its own. Also, its purple, my fave color.
* In my opinion you can't go wrong with this phone, especially if you don't want to pay the extra $40/mo for the data package that you have to purchase with a "Smart" phone.Read full review

The Motorola Rival
I first decided to purchase this product to be perfectly honest because of the color. I love purple and as we all know this phone comes in a metalic purple. The other thing that sold me on this phone was the slide out qwerty keyboard. My wife has a full touch screen phone and has been trying to get me to purchase one as well. This phone has some touch screen sections that have been slowly getting me use to the whole idea. When the advertisement said you will out thumb your friends they were on point with that. I can't say enough how much I like my new phone and encourage any texting fans to purchase this phone. It's wonderful!!!!!!!!

Pretty Good Phone!
I decided to buy this phone when I realized that I'm doing more text messaging lately and I've been using the old 'tap each number three times' to get the letter that's needed. I've used a Razr since they first came out. I didn't want a smart phone (data plans, you know), but it had to have a qwerty keyboard and it had to have large numbers and good size buttons for this senior's eyes. The Motorola Rival fills the bill quite nicely.
I like the phone very much. The slider works smoothly and the keyboard is exactly what I want. I've owned the phone for about two months now and have had no problems as yet. It does have a sort of semi-touch screen. You have to bring up a virtual phone pad to make phone calls that are not in your contact list, and so far, the touch screen has worked without any hitches.
There are some cons, however. The touch screen aspect is very sensitive and I find myself having to remember to keep from touching certain parts of the phone. Also, the backlight on the qwerty keyboard is not very bright so it is hard to text in dim light. I have to be careful how I 'dial' numbers as well, although I don't use the virtual phone pad very often. These things are just minor concerns to me.
All in all, though, I really like this phone and would recommend it to others!Read full review
