Well, it is relatively easy to text on it, but you have to memorise the phone number to send a text, as u can't access the phone book from message editor. (read more)

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 more)

Overall I think this Motorola C520 is a prety good mobile phone. It's good for phoning and storing numbers like any other phone and is quite good for a first timer. (read more)

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.... (read more)

I think the Motorola c520 is an alright phone because it is easy to handle, but it should be a little smaller and lighter.
I would give it 9/10 for overall rating. (read more)

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...

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 more)

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 more)
