    me and my gf just got a new cell plan together to save money, and ended up getting a free razr. it hasn't arrived yet, but it seems like a pretty nifty piece of technology. couple of questions about them:

    1. are there any problems with them, things I should be warned about?

    2. what are some of the best things about them, i.e. are they better than other phones?

    3. are there any "hidden" tricks you can do with them?

    4. is there any place to d/l games for free, or are there any good ones you can get that are cheap? lookin for puzzle games here.

    thanks

    My wife has one.

    1. she has had sporadic problems with the keys not reacting properly when being pressed, but it is not a consistent defect.

    2. the best thing is the design. Menus are good, but it really is a rather stripped down phone, with little memory etc.

    3. I don't know

    4. I have no idea. It might have java, but it does not have symbian OS etc, so you can't install any homebrew software.

    I use mine to CALL PEOPLE and TAKE PICTURES with.

    Those are the 2 neatest tricks of all. My voice travelling through the sky magically appearing in other peoples ears. And then capturing their soul for all eternity inside the magic picturebox!

    Razr's are poor on battery time but good for phone reception. for the first few early software versions on the verizon RAZR the interface has been a bit laggy and slow.

    The new v3cM which is the model of the music version of the re0launched RAZR has more battery time and a better and faster menu and they updated the LCD so that its brighter and easier to see.

    Motorola's best phone so far in my stores lineup is the v325, great phone.

    But if you have the Verizon RAZR not too much you can do to modify it. the GSM versions are more easily hacked than Verizon's. The one's offered by US cellular or alltel might be modifiable. Personally I've yet to see a modified razr that wasn't funkered up in the worst way possible

    yeah mine sucks...unresponsive, laggy, battery life is quite lack luster, the camera sucks

    It is a sexy phone, and the reception is pretty good though.

    I have the SLVR, a better looking phone imo. And yes, it can magically take pictures and send voices and other data through the air. I read news on it too.

    I have WWE's Maria in a bikini for wallpaper, does that count?

    The most fun thing I can think of to do with a Razr is take it back to the store and get a Sony Ericsson W600i :D

    I'd like to get one of those.

    As for the RAZR, my 31-year old cousin has one. My brother has the ROKR. I'm still comfortable with my V190.

    The only reason I'm not still using my Nokia 7001 or whatever it was is because my contract was up and I had to go to the Verizon store and listen to some college sophomore try and sell me a $200 phone.

    I went with the $60 LGblahbittyblah with a $50 rebate and don't have to go back in there until June 2008.

    While I was in there, some Oompa Loompa fake-tan soccer mom came in wanting to buy her fucking 15-year-old a pink RAZR. Luckily for all involved, I had just come from renewing my prescription for Intermittent Explosive Disorder.
