Motorola announced three new simple phones
ZN200 is the one with best features. It is quad-band GSM, capable of global roaming with a 1.9” 176x208 pixels TFT display and 2-megapixel fixed focus camera. In shooting mode, it illuminates only the camera shortcuts to make it easier to use. It is the only one of the three to feature Bluetooth, and is capable of distributing stereo audio wirelessly.
Both W396 and W388 feature 1.8” 128x160 pixels displays and VGA camera. The former is a clamshell with color indicators on the front when closed, while the W388 is a slimmer candybar. Both offer up to 9 hours of talk time and are dual-band GSM phones, which will be available in two variants, for U.S. and Europe.
Yawn......... Does anyone still care about Motorola?
If you don't care about Motorola then why are you even reading the announcement. Show me one LG phone with better reception than a Motorola.
LG VX8350 From Verizon................
that's funny! not as good as the V9M.
you must be kidding my v9m from verizon gets 5 bars than my moms vx8350 gets one so moto is better on on the reception part.
bars dont always mean much. I was up in the mountains with 1 bar while others had 1 or 2, and i was the only one that was able to make and receive calls. It's all about the phone and the carrier, not bars
LG DARE. ALL DAY LONG GOOD RECEPTION, I WORK FOR AN INDIRECT DEALER FOR VERIZON. PEOPLE COME BACK WITH MOTOROLA ALL THE TIME. THE OWNER OF THE COMPANY STOPPED ORDERING MOTOROLA CAUSE HE WASN"T MAKING ANY MONEY BECAUSE MOTOROLAS ALWAYS WERE RETURNED FOR BAD BATTERIES AND DROPPED CALLS. ALL WE HAVE NOW IS LG PHONES AND SAMSUNG AND BLACKBERRIES, THE ONLY MOTO WE GET IS THE NEW PTT MOTO ADVENTURE AND W755 JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE NEW TO SEE WHAT THE RESPONSE IS AND ONLY HAVE THE MOTO ADVENTURE BECAUSE VERIZON IS TRYING TO RELAUNCH THE NEW PTT
I live in the city and the Moto V9m sucked on reception compaired to my LG 8350. Even when the V9m had reception it was alot slower than my LG, the phone couldn't process Vcast as fast as my LG, it had to keep rebuffering. The software on Motorola phones are way too slow. If Moto could make their phones faster I may consider going back to them.

Thats bull, the 8350 is a cruddy cheap phone that would compete with the W755 or the new Razr VE20. If you peeps would read the review, the V9m is one of the most liked phones out there right now, and it got fantastic grades in every category, especially call quality. Stop hating on moto. And the dare? ha, wait till the moto atila comes out, u LG guys wont have much to say
"It's all about the phone and the carrier, not bars" Tell that to AT&T.
I like the ZN200's form factor with the lip at the top. They could make it into a high end slider with that form...could.
V9m gets great reception. i also have the LG Dare. it gets about the same but V9m has more reception.
What about the Choc 3....is it really as good as what the review says? Is reception and call clarity that good?
Samsung and LG= Shit service SE, Nokia, and Moto have the best. Period! You gay VZW fan boys wouldn't know about SE now would yea.
We know about the gay quality of GSM networks though. Not even cool phones can make a crappy wireless technology work better.
haha true that...at least with verizon wen i get no bars i can still make calls i dont get a "no service" sign on my phone
Why are there so many stupid homophobes on PhoneArena, it's so immature and conceited. Nothing is wrong with being gay, it's about your personality. Don't treat them as if they aren't human.
I love Lg and Motorola, Samsung is complete shit, and all there phones look alike.......i really don't want Motorola to go :(
The Motorola Motofone F3 is the only Motorola phone worth buying.
no, not true
