Messaging:

Messaging is straightforward and does not require any lengthy instructions. You can select three different messages to send: Text, Picture, and Video. When sending a Text message, you first enter in the cell number to where it is going and then type the message. If you enter in an E-Mail address as the destination, it will send the message to that persons E-Mail, which they can then reply back to.  Pictures and text can also be sent from an E-Mail address to the phone. When using the iTap text entry, the phone will try to predict the word that you are typing so that you don't have to enter it all in. We found the iTap to be more time consuming than T9 text entry, which most non-Motorola phones use.  Picture and Video Messaging work mostly the same way as a text message, except that you can attach a picture or video and send it to another phone or E-Mail address, but you limited to only sending videos that are up to 15 seconds in size. Sending a Picture or Video will take about 15 seconds when in an EVDO coverage area.

Connectivity:

Bluetooth version 1.1 is supported with up to 20 pairings. Supported profiles include headset, handsfree, serial port, DUN, and OPP (image and vCard transfer only). When testing the with a Jabra 250v headset, calls were clear and had little static as long as we were within 15 feet of the phone. Another useful feature is that you can use a Bluetooth headset in conjunction with the Voice Activated dialing that is built into the phone, but we would of liked to have seen A2DP stereo Bluetooth supported as well for music playback.

Limited Internet access is provided through the phone's WAP browser using Verizon's Mobile Web service which will take you to the Mobile Web main menu. From there you can access various information, such as news, weather, sports, and entertainment. Going to the Search/Go to URL menu will allow you to enter in other WAP and HTTP sites. Most WAP sites load in only a few seconds when in an EVDO area, otherwise it will default to 1x speeds and take longer to load. HTML sites can take up to 30 seconds to load (depending on content) but most do not display properly and larger images cannot be shown.  Due to the small size of the display, and lack of a HTML browser, we recommend only viewing WAP sites on the phone. If you are going to be viewing HTML sites often and need full E-Mail support, then a SmartPhone such as the Motorola Q or XV6700 with QWERTY Keyboard will be better suited for these tasks since they have a fully integrated HTML browser and Outlook E-Mail client.

ok, ive worked for vzw for 16 months, and in the past 3 months we have seen alot of motorolas come in with bad battery life. All we had been doing is replacing the battery and updating the software on the phone. It receently was made official that the batch of batteries on the K1M, the 325 and other phones that take the same bat are defective batteries. This was not to the employees surprise...we originally just would educate customers on proper charging practices and swap the battery. We now know officially that the bats are defective. If you have one of these phones with the defective battery bring it in. The sku on original bats for that model is motbat-1, the improved bat is motbat-3... motorola sucks

I bought this phone when it first came out. I will never buy another Motorola phone again. I am lucky if the battery will last the whole day and navigating the painfully slow menu makes me want to throw it out the window. Luckily I will be able to upgrade soon. It's no wonder Motorola is not doing so well because motorola sucks!

I've had this phone for almost a year or two and it sucks completely. It freezes, sometimes texts will not go through, and it lives on the charger. I don't talk much on it and yet it lives on the charger. Whenever I do charge it though less than 30 mins later it says charge complete and it use to take an hour and a half for it to fully charge. Don't waste your money on it. I bought this phone disliking motorola phones in the first place but I needed a phone so I got. Now this phone makes me dislike motorola even more. I never going to buy a motorola phone again.

Okay, everyone up here is TOTALLY bashing out this phone! I've owned it for a little over a year, and I've LOVEDDDDD IT! I mean, it's super slim (not Razr slim, but you can't complain!), nice look to it, AWESOME MP3 player on the front (easyyyy touchscreen), easy to text on (for me; it's not to wide), it's picture/video ability is alright, and I just like it in general.. But yeah, I totally love it. C: I've only had one problem with it: The screen went blank. But nothing's perfect, right? I took it back to my carrier's store (US Cellular; which reminds me, it's also got great reception. Never a dropped call, clear hearing/speaking! Longgg enough talk time for me.. and I'm a girl :) and got the tech guy to take a look at it, replace the battery (it costed me nothing..) and it worked fine again! It's a very durable phone, even though it's got a sleek and sofisticated look to it. ;) I've dropped it a thoussssand and oneeee times, and only one problem that got fixed in a jiffy. And you say it's a bad phone? :P Also, (personally) I like Motorola. I perfer it over all other kinds. ;] (Next it line, though, would be LG) IT'S AN AMAZINGGG PHONE, GO GET IT! :D

i'm with the last one on this phone!! i've had my 1st krzr for about 2 yrs. the only reason i have got another 1 is...that i gave my neice my older 1 wenmy dad bought 2 more for a great price!! they were practically brand new & the ppl that had them just didnt want the contract that they signed on for!~ these phones are great! if they can hold up to us girls talkin alll the time and us all textn 24/7. then they must be good! the camera i will agree is not the best! depends on where u take the pic! (lighting conditions) but overall it's been a great phone!
