Written on: 13/09/2002 by pah1507. (1 review written)

I've had the Motorola C520 mobile phone for 3 years, and it still works, despite dropping it numerous times! It's much sturdier than some of the current flimsy phones. The keys are well spaced, which helps texting, but you have to enter the person's phone number each time, even when replying. If you suddenly forget the number, you have to save the message, then go back to the phone book and memorise the number before sending the message. There is also no vibrate. As long as you only want the… Read Full Review

“The MAIN problem on the Motorola C520 mobile phone is...”

Written on: 11/04/2002 by phe99. (1 review written)

The MAIN problem on the Motorola C520 mobile phone is texting. Whilst writing a text, it's SO easy to press the Volume Control key (next to "1" for "space") - upon which you have to start writing all over again! So, you've managed to get to the end of your message (well done!)- but can you scroll through your address book to find the number to send the text to? OF COURSE NOT! You have to remember ALL the numbers you might text to, or carry a pen and paper at all times, or your address book. Or… Read Full Review

I think the Motorola c520 is an alright phone because it is easy to handle, but it should be a little smaller and lighter.

Written on: 06/01/2002 by Craigy. (1 review written)

The motorola C520 is an ok phone i guess if you're after a basic phone and size ain't a problem, but if you're a young spud after summit trendy obviously this ain't a good choice. I had mine for some time and although not the most appealing phone to look at they are well built and was solidly reliable. My mother just recently got a mobile which has more button configurations than enough which was a task for me to work round nevermind her, a phone like the C520 would have been an excellent… Read Full Review

Barbara.'s Response to 8724_Craigy.'s Review

Written on: 13/09/2002

I love this phone and am desperately looking for another one.
<br>I like is practicality, size and general un-gimmickyness. I don't need, want or use all the latest whistles and bells,- OK technology is passing me by,- but I want a reliable and comfortable phone to use and this is it. Maybe phone companies should think about older people who don';t spend all day texting and twiddly and ringing dinky tunes, and re-introduce no-nonsense value for money ease of use phones like this.
<br>If you know of anyone who'd sell a second hand one, please let me know.
<br>Thanks
<br>Barbara

Written on: 31/12/2001 by Dan H. (1 review written)

I'm using one of thesemotorola c520 'bricks' because my Nokia 8210 is broken. And although it works and enables me to make telephone calls, its a complete nightmare!
My first mobile phone was a Motorola flare 5 years ago, and this is basically the same phone. All the menus and all the features are exactly the same.
What has Motorola been spending their R&D money on recently?
The most annoying feature, is not being able to use somebody's name when sending a text. You have to get their number… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2001 by Jeff Bradley. (1 review written)

Pretty much featureless. This is a really basic phone, can't understand why Motorola keep manufacturing them. One has to enter the persons number when sending text messages, rather then using the phone book (not much use when you can't remember someones number). A bit on the large side and has huge horrible springs in the battery compartment, which make very difficult to remove the battery. I wouldn't bother with this if were you… Read Full Review
