My 5th Phone- welcome the world of Camera Phones
This little puppy was awesome, I can download mp3 ringtones, take pictures, send pictures, and Text.Huge step up from the Nokia I had, this little baby pumped, when my buddy bought one of the first Razr that came in even though it was impressive my little v220 went toe to toe with it, even the volume of the ringtones was slightly louder!very sturdy considering it was mostly plastic. This is one phone I can honestly say I really enjoyed!Design 8/10Features 7/10Performance 8/10
- Small and compact.
- it was Free!
- loud volume

Phone isnt worth the space it takes
The Phone is not worth the investment. It shuts down on its own, loses signals sporadically, and causes way too many headaches. I dont want to financially support the makers of Excedrin, but with this phone I might as well have. Signals are dropped on a whim, stanidng still in the same spot, you will go from a full signal with your provider to a complete loss of one and go onto emergency only or no signal. (This was confirmed by my being with two other people with the same CPSP and they had a full signal on different phones.) I dropped the phone ONCE ... and when it fell, the top portion of the phone fell off. I have yet to see a phone that will fall apart from ONE fall.Design 4/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 3/10Signal Strength 2/10Value for money 2/10

Have had my V220 for almost a year. The camera is REALLY basic & has minimal contrast control. NOT good for action shots (capture rate is SLOW).
I'm on Cingular in SoCal. I love Cingular. However, sometimes when i send a txt msg, phone tells me 'can't send now, try later', even though it's showing 3,4 or sometimes 5 bars for signal!! (kinda frustrating).
Haven't had the patience for using the browser feature. It's slow too.
Next time think i'll try either Samsung or maybe go back to Nokia.Design 6/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 8/10

The motorola v220 is good value for money however, if you are looking for a slightly expensiver,(much better) phone go for the sony ericsson k770i. The k700 i has a mp3 player built in but with 41 gb internal memory much better than the v220 and its features are amazing and takes the limits of a mobile phone to the extreme.Design 9/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 8/10

not bad really
i've had this phone for abt 8 months. sound could be a bit louder, the camera works great outside, but def. not for indoor dark areas (like in the club for example). The only thing that bothers me with this phone is the software crashes now and then.. esp when i'm using AOL instant messenger on it. usually happens when I'm scrolling to read the messages while someone has msg'd me. i didnt shell out heaps of money for this phone, so i'm happy all around. I made my own mp3 ringtones by using soundforge and the pc tools software to upload them onto my phone. I also really LOVE the iTap Predictive Text Input ... makes for txting really reallly easy. yeah the phone does scratch easily, and i've got a really bad habit of just dropping it into my purse when I'm on the run... but oh well!Design 8/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 7/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 8/10

Dont waste your Money
This phone is horrible, the reception is bad, the camera broke after 2 months (is wasnt that good before that), the only good thing is the speaker phone option, other than that it stinks. The ring tones and volume change on there own. This phone is horrible I would not reccomend this to anyone unless you were not planning on keeping it for longer than 2 months.Design 7/10Features 4/10Sound Quality 3/10Signal Strength 5/10Value for money 4/10

Very bad reception
Doesn't work in my building. It does work in my workplace, which is a building too, located in Manhattan. So it seems to be a Bronx thing.
Still, it SHOULD work in my building. I have to stick my head out the window to talk.
Sound is choppy. Camera phone yields bad pictures. I don't recommend this phone.Design 10/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 2/10Signal Strength 2/10Value for money 2/10

This phone is a major issue. Is camera sucks so bad its so dark no matter how you try to adjust it. It scratches easily. The phone (if you are strong enough) you could crush it with your bare hands. I hate it so much. But its desighn is aiight. Feature are ok but they only have one game the ring tones suck. The sound is ok and the speaker is OK. The price is a rip off it sshould be like $40.00. After that the phone is just a phone.Design 9/10Features 4/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10

I've had mine for 2 months and it's been a great phone. Very reliable and easy to use. I like not having to press a button to answer the phone. Just flip and answer! ;)
So yeah, I would definitely recommend it.Design 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 10/10

What is their for people to complain about?
O.K. This is a great phone and have had no problems with it in the while that i have had it. The main thing people complain about is a small camera, but if you are buying for a camera then you should get a digital camera, the camera is designed for the background of the phone. The phone has very clear sound and excellent games built in. I would recommend this to anyone looking for one.Design 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 10/10

I got this phone through an online promotion with Cingular. Cost me nothing. I have had it now for approximately a month and have had no problems. The camera is what it is. But I have a 5mp Sony for real pics. I like the IM capabilities and the screen size and resoltion is fine.Design 8/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 5/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 9/10

Serious Bugs and Poor Sound
I have had this phone for a just a few days over three months now and I've had nothing but trouble. The phone continually freezes and blacks out. I get dropped calls frequently and 90% of the time I can't hear the person I am talking to. Also the screen is incredibly small and the camera is horrible, even for a phone. I would not recommend this phone, im taking it back for the V551 or anything else. Don't buy this phone!Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 2/10Signal Strength 3/10Value for money 5/10

I just got this camera phone on cingular's site so I got it really cheap. I love the phone! The only problem I am having is email. I can't figure out how to email pictures on my phone to MY email address. Other than that... I love it. It doesn't have those fork ports that most motorola's have to it's easy to plug it in to charge and plug your headset into it and hard to mess it up! The phone quality on the ring tones are off the hook! The photo quality is good too, and it has a zoom.Design 9/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 10/10

I think motorolla have done well with this, phone it looks great and preforms well, its also great value for money. I just hope it has a bit more memory than the nokia 3200 which has a pathetic 1 meg memory pool which can store crap all. Shocking!!!!!!!!!!!
