Written on: 29/10/2004 by fredddd (1 review written)

I went through 3 antennas at $15 to $19 each for my Motorola V60 before I did a little research and got smart. Take the back cover off the phone, remove the base of your broken off antenna. Take a piece of speaker wire from your home stereo approx. 5 inches long. Strip just the insulation off the end so you see nice shiny copper wire. Mess up the strands so it looks like spaghetti. Jam this into the hole where your antenna base used to be. Run it under the back cover so that when the cover… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/10/2004 by rachelcurl (1 review written)

My husband and I purchased Motorola V60's because of the small selection that AT&T offered in their stores. We also selected these phones because we needed national coverage and at the time 3/19/04 the new GSM service would not offer the same vase coverage. We were stuck with basically one choice. Less than 7 months after our purchase this phone is discontinued in their stores. (There is a real shocker!)

Less than a week ago, I spoke with a friend that has had three of these phone. All of… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2004 by gingermanpowers (1 review written)

I love the durablity of the V60 's body. I am a cell phone abuser...........I destroyed two star-tacs in 6 months. Most other phones would have desintegrated under my wrath. I have been pounding on the same V60 for more than 2 years with barely a scratch. (what the hell is this thing made of?)

The telescoping antenna is the only real flaw. Luckilly they are easy and cheap to replace. (my verizon store charges 5 bucks for the 30 second procedure)… Read Full Review

Maybe I'm a dumb ol' geek.. I have never had a problem with my Motorola V60's fixed antenna...Of course I have yet to throw it across the room or use it for a dodge ball..The phone has been good to me for over 2 years now....I could use another battery at this point as it will not retain its charge as long as it used too...Great Phone… Read Full Review

“The Motorola V60 phone has 2 antenna options, fixed...”

Written on: 16/07/2004 by woodeye (1 review written)

The Motorola V60 phone has 2 antenna options, fixed (AT&T) and extendable (Verizon / Cingular). The extendable antenna is very fragile and breaks off easily, average life 1-6 months. Replacement cost is $15-20, parts are usually available locally. The fixed antenna won't break, the phone breaks instead and must be shipped to Texas for repair with or without warranty, for approx. 4 weeks since Motorola will not supply repair parts to repair shops or to owners. I repeat, Motorola absolutely… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2004

My solution to the V60 antenna problem is this: remove the back cover. Remove the old antenna base. Take a piece of wire from your home stereo speaker, strip off 1/2 inch of the insulation so you see the copper strands. Mess up the copper strands so they look like spaghetti. Shove the mess into the nice gold colored area where the antenna base used to be. Loop the wire so that when you put the back cover back on it captures the wire. about 4 inches is an optimal length to have sticking out when you're done. This arrangement lasts two to six months depending on how much I use the phone. It takes me less than 5 minutes to make another antenna when my home-built ones eventually break through too much bending around. I get 5 bars now with my home-built antenna where I used to get 3 with the original antenna. I resorted to this after my 3rd antenna purchase for this phone. I treated it like the $400 jewel it was, yet I still found broken antennas very frequently.

I love the light weight and attractive design that the Motorola V60 mobile phone has. I love the smart button feature and when you learn to use it, it changes everything. The only bad thing is that the antenna broke off after a few months. I went and bought an antenna of the market with a little light on it and it worked wonders. It made the phone look even more attractive… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/12/2003 by sfmuscular (1 review written)

The first generation Motorola V60's received incoming email and reproduced the sender's address, subject and so much of the text as the carrier forwarded. However, the new V60 color truncates the entire text field. Unless a sender uses a subject that conveys the entire message, it is NEVER received. Worse, the phone rejects some incoming messages entirely and I've yet to figure out what causes this. I'm going back to my first generation V60; it was more reliable as a business tool… Read Full Review

This phone should seriously be recalled. I got my second phone in Jan 2003 and now it's August 2003, been on my 2nd antenna within two weeks. I take care of my phone and there is just something wrong with it. The rep at cingular told me that she could not fix my phone since I crazy glued it, I am going back to my Nokia 8260. I have had 2 v60's, I liked it but nothing fun about it breaking all the time. The rep told me she had never heard anything negative, well, I see I am not the only one on… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2003 by larrymck (1 review written)

I just finished reading all the stuff about these Motorola V60 mobile phones. I am on my 3rd antenna in 6 months. This is a no brainer, look at the design of the antenna, would anyone not on drugs design something like that? I received the phone as a present, so I have to keep it, otherwise I would just chuck it with the 299.00 invoice. This antenna problem has nothing to do with being careless, it is such a poor design, they deserve a class action suit for fraud. I will never in my life buy… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2003 by mike. (1 review written)

my antenna broke off after about 6 months. I thought that some crazy glue would just fix it b/c i didnt want to pay to send it in and be w/o my phone for 3 weeks but it didnt. I had to crazy glue it a couple of time and then i finally lost the antenna. Also, the clip should be done the other way, with the face of the phone facing towards the clip, not out. this way if u drop it, only the back gets scratched, not the front. But the antenna is really bad. I do not recommend this phone to anyone… Read Full Review

Motorola will fix broken antennas under warranty or out of warranty at no charge. I've had several customers take advatange of this.

i've had this phone for 4 months and my antenna just snapped off. i wasn't aware of the bad antenna's prior to purchasing this phone- but after i got it EVERYONE that i knew that knew someone with this phone told me about how their antenna snapped off. Knowing this, i was very cautious with my phone and always took it out of my pocket when i sat down also. The antenna always made a little clicky noise with the slightest touch- which warned me that it was about to break. So it finally broke and… Read Full Review

Why dont you bring the phone to Motorola Shop? I have a motorola V60 for 1 yr+, dropped many times, not one scratch. It might be the way you handle your phone. Might be a good idea to bring to a LICENSED MOTOROLA SHOP.

Written on: 23/02/2003 by ulysses. (1 review written)

I purchased this phone from t-mobile as a replacement for my lost moto-c332 for 279.99. The price was a huge drawback when I received the phone, and it wasn't as jam packed as the cheaper c332 (100.00 with a $50.00 rebate-features built in microbrowser, itap, replaceable faceplates, polyphonic ringtones, bright backlit black and white screen with 4 different shades of black, super tiny). The only difference between the 2 was the v60 had a built in radio (which you would have to pay for… Read Full Review
