    Hi there,

    I've been lthinking about getting the V525 flip phone which is available
    through Vodafone in the UK - i think the non Vodafone equivalent is the
    V500. I was just wondering if anyone out there has either of these two
    phones and if so what are your experiences of them so far. I've tried to
    find reviews for them on the net but but so far have only found one which to
    be fair was very good.

    So if anyone could give me some useful info I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks very much

    David

    I have tested the V525 during 2 days and very, very good impressions.
    Very good quality of the screen and camera, bluetooth, quadban, gprs,
    handsfree integrated, poliphonic and mp3 sounds and very fast and easy menu.

    Re: Your thoughts on the Motorola V500/V525 please

    Thanks for that Cesisa. Can I ask you one or two more questions though
    please:

    When answering a call do you just have to unfold the phone to answr the call
    and fold it back up to finish the call or do you have to push a button too

    Also what's it like for texting? I've also been thinking about the Samsung
    V200 but understand that its SMS system isn't up to much - won't retain new
    words when you type them in etc

    Thanks in advance

    David.

    I do! I plan to buy the V600 but I'm sure you can help:

    1- I think the antenna is horrible for the design and I'd like to replace it
    by a smaller like I did with my V50. Does the antenna of the V500 can be
    taken off (when you turn it)?

    2- Can you save several phone numbers (not email, note or whatever) for a
    same contact. I read one could only save one phone number + several infos.

    Thanks

    ------ I had the phone during 2 days and I didn't try to take off the
    antenna. Motorola doesn't make smaller antennas to replace it. The phone
    would have less signal and it will need more power to get it, so the battery
    would decrease the function time (sorry for my english)

    > 2- Can you save several phone numbers (not email, note or whatever) for a

    ---- Yes, you can if you save it in the memory of the phone, not in the sim
    card. And the best thing is that you can see the picture of the contact when
    he calls you.
