Don't wastyor money

We've had our phones for about 3 yrs. and you charge it over night and your lucky if you get one call on it before it goes dead. Keep a car charger with you is all I can say........

BEST OF THE BEST

I have been using this Motorola r750 plus for a while, and I think it is the best phone you can have. It is constructed up to the military standard, and it will never let you down.

This is not a toy phone, you can drop it, and it will still work. It is just as durable as 4X4 / SUV going to the off road. You will have a lot of fun with it.

Best All Around Phone

This phone is excellent. If you do not mind your friends giving you an odd look when you show up with this large device, then this is the best phone that you can get if you want a serious mobile phone.

This phone is large. Many times people think that I am a cop or part of security or whatnot. But, it is not too big to carry around, and it is definitely the most durable phone on the market. We have dropped ours about 100 times on hard surfaces and it still works flawlessly and has never broken any parts.

You are looking at the last phone ever produced that is part of the legendary build quality for which Motorola became famous. If you appreciate the best engineering in electronics, this phone will impress you.

Great design, excellent reception, long battery life, durability, easy battery swap... this phone has it all.

True, the camera, colors, buzzing sounds etc are missing. This is not a toy.

Best Motorola Phone Since the Ultra Classic

This phone is by far, the best all-around telephone device made by Motorola for the consumer market. I am sorry, but cameras, ring tones, faceplates, lighted antennas, SMS.... these are not requirements for great communications. This phone does not have them, but the phones that DO have those features DO NOT have the really critical features required for effective communication.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:
The minimum requirements for effective serious mobile communications using the telephone network are:

1) Excellent Reception - This requires a very good antenna and a sensitive, well-built radio.

2) Long Battery Life - Ability to last 300 minutes of talk and 3 days standby time.

3) Durability - Must survive repeated 5 foot drop tests on concrete, and meet Military Specs for wind, rain, shock, vibration and temperature.

Why are these so important? Well, if you are going to use the phone for serious communications for business, medical or government purposes.... or if your communications are important to you for other reasons, you must be able to receive and make calls in almost all parts of your coverage area. You need the best reception possible. Also, you don't need to have to charge your phone constantly. Long battery life will eliminate that need. And thirdly, how many times have you dropped your phone and broken it? These days, too many phones are just cheap plastic, mass-produced, junk. If your phone fails when you REALLY need it because you happen to drop it...
