While the wife has only had the V950 for 1 day I can do a reveiw on it, as I labored over it for hours yesterday to get everything onto it that she wanted.
What you get in the box… Phone, 256mb memory card, wall charger, holster, books.
The only thing bad that I have found so far is that this phone uses a totally different connection for the charger / data port. It uses a micro usb. Now we have to purchase another car charger. I just bought her a new one 2 months ago. Can’t we just centralize the types of connections that these phones take so that we all don’t have to keep purchasing new stuff when we change out phones?
This phone seems rugged with the rubber type casing it has. The phone has no antenna. The phone has no sim card.
Loading pictures, videos, and ringers wasn’t bad. I initially had the phonebook loading working via bluetooth. I used the Motorola Phone Tools method via bluetooth. You need to have the latest version of MPT for this way to work.
To load apps, and games I called Sprint, and the CSR set me up with the $5 internet package. From there I went through a site that I always use, and sent text messages to the phone with the Jar file attached. The screen is bigger than the IC902 that my wife previously owned.
Getting the direct connect to work was a bit of a nightmare. The phone kept coming back to me saying that registration failed. They found out that the activation rep. hadn’t entered everything correct.
Internet is faster on this phone in comparison to my Blackberry Curve 8350i. Granted that phone is on Nextel, where the v950 is on Sprint.
