Motorola W175 Reviews

Good Phone For the Price

I purchased this phone at Sears on sale for only $10, a couple day ago. I'm not big on Tracfone, but I must say this phone is pretty good for what you pay. This phone is pretty eye-catching, especially with the glossy keypad, and thin profile; although the was a little too tall for my taste.

(+) surprising quality ringtones (polyphonic)
(+) full color screen!!
(+) large storage for messages and contacts
(+) useful tools
(+) lots of customizable options
(+) good speakerphone and call quality
(+) cool keypad lights, keys similar to the Razr, Krzr, etc.
(+) supports USB charging
(+) good battery life
(+) was very easy to activate
(+) LOUD

(-) no MMS or WAP
(-) no bluetooth
(-) keys take getting used to because they are pretty crammed
(-) low quality graphics
(-) games, not so good
(-) each contact entry can only contain one number :-( this shortens the contact memory
(-) no assigned ringers to callers
(-) vibration a little awkward

** Despite the cons, this is a decent phone. Its not high-end, but its very affordable and gives you the basics. Ringtone quality, and call quality, is what won my vote. This phone also looks very sleek, and screen size is surprisingly decent. This may seem as an upgrade from the Motorola C139. **

Excellent Purchase

I honestly can't find a single thing wrong with this phone. It's a high quality Motorola that works great and I purchased it for an especially great low price. PLUS it's on the Tracfone service which offers me awesome coverage nationwide and significant savings each month. You really can't go wrong with this phone, it's the perfect package deal and you really get your money's worth :) Completely reccommend it

Best Phone I've ever had

If you are getting a tracfone, this is the one to get. Its easy to use and I have had no problems with mine.

sadly not impressed

I had this phone so I wouldn't destroy my KRAZR k1m at the time (I had been rugged on my phones andd had a backup in case, and chose tracfones services.

I successfully had this phone for 2 months up and working and 1 or two times the keypad just flashes, repeatedly. I tried charges, didn't work, I tried different chargers, didn't work I even tried a new battery and of course didnt work, my friend had the same phone I tested my battery and it worked, so therefore I came to the conclusion that it been the battery becaused the batteries I currently had worked in this phone. I know I cant complain about what I got it was a 9.99 phone and a 9.99 tracfone for two months is just what i got.

I used to use tracfone and had the motorola c139 and I got it for like 30 worser quality, and overall crappy, but was durable and would beat this phone to shreds anyday.

great basic phone

-great battery life
-great reception through tracfone
-it holds a lot of contacts
-contacts can be on the phone or the sim card.

-only one phone number for each contact
-cant text to an email address

altogether its a very nice basic phone.

One of the best yet cheap

If your looking for a phone that you call somebody and thats it this is it. When I signed up for Sun Link Wireless a goverment sponserd program I thought it would be a hideous 15 year old phone but today when I recieved it, it actually looked cool and compared to my w385 pretty good. I havent tried calling anybody but majority of people from other places say its good. But what i love is usb port on side so it could interact with motorola phone tools. The style and sexy look of it is really great thats why i love it.
