The Motorola SLVR(Sliver) L7 -PROS: The phone has a Clean User Interface with great embedded memory for personal options MENU KEY > SETTINGS > PERSONALIZE > MAIN MENU > VIEW: LIST or ICONS, by default this phone shows LIST, change this option to ICONS for easy access to all personal options. My Motorola holds a long battery charge which is good for travelers or world-wide commuters. Other great features include a 'voice recognition key' used such as Calling Voice Commands for people stored on your Phone only, the store in SIM memory option does NOT use "Voice Commands." Your options show when adding someone to your address book, (e.g. ADD NUMBER > STORE TO: 'PHONE' for voice command.) Good datebook organization, If you Love Itunes this phone is for you allowing you to connect the phone to your desktop and transfer music (up to 512 MB or 100 songs, which ever comes first.) using the inbox data cable. You can also use the phone for Instant Messaging with AOL, ICQ and Yahoo! E.g. MENU KEY > SETTING > TOOLS > IM > NEW ACCOUNT, very easy to use. Blue tooth is nice for hands-free headsets and in car deployment. CONS: I dislike the fact of UnOrganized in bound calling... e.g. If you miss a call more than once like someone calling you a few times it only shows the most recent call. This tends to be unhelpful when someone calls you and then you miss their call again, you only see they called once. Very UnOrganized Missed Calls List. PRICE AND ACCESSORIES: Retail value is 400USD. I wouldn't spend more than 150USD and besure to see if the phone is Unlocked AND includes Motorola SLVR L7 comes with a stereo headset, data cable and a 3.5mm Stereo Headset Adapter already inbox. I hope my experience with my phone has helped you out in you phone decision.
I am the kind of person who goes through phones every 3 months. Until now. The slvr has got to be the best phone on the market. The quality of the phone compared to any other is incrediable. Also a big key to getting a good working phone is to NEVER get an unlocked phone. If you have Cingular stick with a Cingular phone. If you have Sprint stick with a Sprint phone ect. For all Cingular customers this phone will serve it's purpose plus some.
Have you been tired of all the good phones launched in flip phone. If you are a big fan of 'candy bar' phone - here's a good option that has finally arrived. This is a phone and iPOD combined into one. This one is better than iPOD as it has a powerful stereophonic speakers for playing your songs.
Battery life is good. Very sleek - have owned it for 3 months now and just love it.
The negative would be its UI - but when was UI good in any of the Motorola phones. All the iPOD/iTunes UI remains as-is and is good.
The phone comes with USB cable, headphone adaptor so that you can plug in any of your favorite headphones (like bose) to it. All these accessories come free with 512M memory card which can store up to 100 songs.
Beware - if you are buying it on eBay - most of the sellers are selling the Europe version which either does not has any memory or 128M memory and they do not highlight it very clearly. Look for Cingular and US version which has 512M.
I was looking at the Razor clam shell design when the SLVR came out. It has all the useful features that I wanted with voice recognition dialling, light & compact, strength of signal, beefier speaker phone, quick interface to the wireless Bluetooth. The address book took some time to figure out but it is very easy to search & many levels of information can be stored, Poor mans PDA. I do not use the internet options to a large degree but love the built in camera. Good photo quality in many adverse light conditions,
Tips to those who want to protect the face screen & camera lens. FInd a thin grade vynyl and cut to fit. It will hold by static electricity & does not impair the visibility. If you have a friend who quilts or sews they will help you find this product. The case that is available to carry the phone during exercise is close to what could be used for regular wear. Get busy Motorola!
The best 2 mechanical features were the shortcut key strokes to often used features & voice dial. It is a great telephome. Time will tell how it will like "impact", my old Panasonic that I replaced was contractor grade and could be dropped, stepped on etc & keep om ticking.
It is so nifty that my significant other went out & got one within 3 days. I am only sorry there weren't more color options besides black at the time I bought mine. Buy this phone & you willalso have your tunes, You can't make a call on your Ipod.
I love the itunes. I am a full time college student. Between the backpack filled with books and binders this makes 1 less thing I need to make sure is in the pack, my ipod. This is my phone and my music, and the best part I could use the software and music lists I already had for my ipod. Speaker volume is great, I love this phone!! Clarity is very good, really a great phone for the price.
Best phone I have ever owned. No problems encountered yet. Doubt there will be. Music is clear and phone has a good camera, although I have seen better. If you can get this phone and are tired of fluip phones like me this is the phone for you.
I bought this phone about two months ago and have loved it. It's got a great camera feature that includes 4x zoom, a video camera, and it plays mp3's with iTunes. (NOTE: this feature is not available on phones made for markets outside the US and it can't be added either!)
Before I got the SLVR, I had been thinking about getting an iPod, but I don't have to now. Sure, it only holds 100 songs instead of thousands, but why search through hundreds and hundreds of songs to find your favorites? I can just put the ones I really like on my SLVR and always have them with me. Plus, the headphones and 1/8" adapter that came with it make it easy to use anywhere. It's also completely compatible with the newest version of iTunes.
The only drawback is that the screen is much harder to keep clean than the flip phone I used to have, but it's only a big deal for someone OCD like me.
My advice: get this phone. You won't be sorry!
the size is good not to big but still has a lot of feetures
it has good battery life .
a good mp3 player
if your have motorola phone tools you can put your own ring tones and wall papers on the phone .
it gets great reception
the only thing thats not perfect on it is the texting is a little slow .
This is a great phone. Small and compact, light weight. This phone is also very easy to use. Only thing I dislike about the phone is that I can not get the I tunes to work.
GREAT PHONE!!!! I LOVE THIS CELL PHONE IT WORKS GREAT AND WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
