Written on: 23/11/2007 by Alberto2008 (1 review written)

In general am satisfied. Motorola V220 is one of the best phone I ever bought, I would prefer the camera to be 2 mega pixel. Great phone, 4 x cam zoom, battery life, externally screen, shielded for button pressing, built in mp3 player, coverage, unlockable, durability, descent camera, water proof, not easily scratch… Read Full Review

“This phone is worth buying if you want something...”

Written on: 13/08/2007 by marolous mob (1 review written)

This phone is worth buying if you want something simple and if all you want is a phone for calling and texting then this is fine, but for those who want the high tech job including Bluetooth and video recording as I said before Samsung and Sony Ericsson is your best bet. Also, the battery life if poor. I charged my mobile yesterday and by the end of the day (it had been more or less on standby) it had only one bar.
I'm not impressed with Motorola and I'm going to go for the high tech phones… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2007 by riker (77 reviews written)

I wanted a camera phone and the Motorola V220 was the cheapest I could find at the time. I liked the MP3 ringtones but it didn't have much memory - enough for cut down ringtones only and shared with photos. It was difficult to transfer photos and mp3s as there was no software provided with the phone. It did use the same mini usb connector as my digital camera so I could connect it to my PC and I used some trial software. After a few weeks I went onto a contact and chose a Samsung which… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/11/2006 by ironfist (1 review written)

I bought this phone about 18 months ago. A friend bought exactly the same model about a month later, but she had the sense to get insurance. She has had hers replaced three times under the insurance policy because of problems. I've just given up and bought a new phone because of recurring problems with screen on the Motorola V220, battery life and Sim crashes etc. No it's not the Sim, because my new phone has been fine for the last three months with the same Sim card… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2006 by Johnybgoode (6 reviews written)

I like this Motorola V220 phone, the style in particular. I have the silver one and it starts to look scratched and tatty quite quickly as one of the other reviewers has already said. It's fine texting but if you text a bit and use the alarm, as I do, then the battery life is not great and you'll be recharging it every second day. A few months old now and it's starting to feel a bit less screwed together. A decent enough phone if you can pick one up cheaply on a PAYG… Read Full Review

This Motorola V220 phone is a piece of trash, camera went out within 3 months, there is no reception, ringer on loudest you can barely hear. Now one year from purchase, the LCD screen does not display, so basically I am stuck with this piece of junk until my contract expires in 6 months! I wish I had keep my Nokia instead of "upgrading", as suggested by my carrier… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2006 by kram (14 reviews written)

The Motorola V220 mobile phone is small and reliable for a very good price. It has hands free voice recognition which is excellent. There is a built-in camera which takes good photo's, although viewing them on the phones small screen doesn't show them to the best quality: Transfer them to your PC if you have one. The battery life is excellent too, and can be on stand-by for nearly two weeks; obviously depending on the phones use.

Overall, it is a reliable and good value for money mobile phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2006 by charli12 (1 review written)

The Motorola V220 mobile phone has a very good camera. The battery life is perfect, and the screen size is perfect for me! Slim line, Small, will fit into your tiniest handbags girls, and it fits in my jeans pocket (very small pockets). My friends say it's awesome, and 2 of my friends got one for Christmas.

The internet accessibility is very good. I have got 5 ringtones so far. I got my Humps last week; that's how easy it is.
My brother was jealous!

A silver one is easily found, although… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2005 by v220pink (1 review written)

WAP is hard to get hold of on the Motorola V220! HERE IS HOW TO GET FULL WAP ON MOTOROLA V220...

This now depends on your network, so go to your network website and look for the WAP settings. If the V220 doesn't show, click it as V600 or V620.

If you're on the O2 network go to O2.co.uk, then click WAP, then click O2 active and GPRS settings, and carry on from there putting the phone as the Motorola V620.

They will tell you what to do from there! It does work! I did it myself!… Read Full Review

I would not have bought the Motorola V220 phone if I knew what I was in for. It has a small battery, bad camera quality which meens most of your pictures are blurred. The ringtones are an awful selection. The aerial was not securly fastened on and wouldn't do up so I am constantly holding on to it. I would have rather have gone without a phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2005 by THOMASSAMMY (2 reviews written)

For the price, the Motorola V220 is a good phone (£64 pay as you go). The camera isn't brilliant by todays standards, but is ok for fun snapshots.

My biggest gripe is the WAP and MMS, which would not work until I configured the settings for these manually (found instructions on Vodafone website, (for V525). Tried these on my V220 and it worked).
I would suggest that this is a problem with the service provider, rather than the phone itself.

This phone is a vast improvement over my… Read Full Review

Reply to ragingminx from thomassammy:
<br>
<br>To activate the MMS and Vodafone Live, I went on the Vodafone website, where there are step by step instructions for doing this (instructions for V525 work for V220).
<br>
<br>This involves inputting values in to the phone using various menus. It takes quite a while, but it worked in the end.
<br>
<br>Hope this helps.

Written on: 13/10/2005 by rachael horne (9 reviews written)

I have never once been able to get WAP on my Motorola V220 mobile phone, and I have to keep switching the phone off and on again, as the reception keeps vanishing. The battery goes down to 1 bar the day after charging it fully, it won't send picture messages, and sometimes texts don't send/arrive until a couple of days later! However, I love the cute little handset, and the camera is OK if you don't want anything too flash… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2005

I agree with your comment on WAP and picture messaging (MMS) difficulty. After buying a new phone, it is frustrating to find that some features won't work straight away.
<br>
<br>I finally got the WAP/MMS to work by going on to the Vodafone website, and finding instructions for the manual configuration of the Motorola V525. As this phone appears similar to the V220, I followed the instructions to the letter, and the said features worked fine after this.
<br>
<br>I think other service providers give similar instructions.
<br>
<br>Hope this is useful.
