Written on: 18/09/2006 by The Towel (1 review written)

I needed a phone and the Motorola C975 was cheap. Has a free memory card adaptor, turns on and accepts my Contract SIM card but it looks awful, has a rubbish menu, no bluetooth, and a 32MB card. I only bought it because my insurance company was a rip off and wanted £100 to even start a claim!… Read Full Review

I got the Motorola C975 mobile phone for £5, and it's the best phone ever! It has a brilliant camera and video quality. There is a lot of free stuff on 3 internet. The phone also has an MP3 player, and you get a 64Mb memory card with the phone… Read Full Review

The Motorola C975 is near enough the best mobile phone out. It's got everything all in one, such as a digital camera, video camera, personal music play and 3G for broadband like speeds. It's the best phone. Recommended! Get it!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/03/2006 by thomascollett (3 reviews written)

Although the Motorola C975 mobile phone is relatively chunky compared to other models, size is not an issue (particularly if you have been an owner of the Nokia 8800!). The phone does not feature Bluetooth or IRDA, but does however support TransFlash memory, which only works out at about £20 for a 512Mb memory card.

The joystick is a little clumsy, but you get used to it after about a day. On the '3' network, the handset enables you to manage up to five simultaneous calls, which support… Read Full Review

By the way, I meant the Nokia 6600 not the Nokia 8800. Sorry about that :-)

Be careful about buying batteries from eBay, and similar places. If you buy from shops, make sure they are suitable for your handset and have a decent capacity. I had 2 batteries from Hong Kong for this handset, and both refused to hold charge after a couple of days of use, and whats more they even had a "Motorola Original" hologram on them (but I might note that they had identical serial numbers!). The supplied battery seems to triple in capacity if you condition it well (ie. recharge it fully, discharge it fully, recharge it fully etc). I no longer have any gripes about the battery life on the handset as mine will go for a few days now.

Written on: 04/03/2006 by jonep (1 review written)

I have now had my Motorola C975 mobile phone for 9 months, and I have found it to be excellent! Reception has never been a problem - only losing the 3G a handful of times, but still being able to make and receive calls.

It is a basic phone with an average camera and no bluetooth, but with 2 cameras and all you need to keep in touch with each other, I have no complaints to make.

I have read other reviews, and I cannot believe they are talking about the same phone. I am also on the 3 network… Read Full Review

Overall, the Motorola C975 is a good cheap mobile phone which can play MP3's, videos, and it is a 3G phone (I know the 3 network sucks, but just get it unlocked to any network)

I recommend this phone to people with a limited budget… Read Full Review

You will find that the battery life significantly improves when care is taken with charging and discharging the battery. Condition the battery properly (allow for a full discharge before recharging the unit), and you should find the supplied cell is as effective as other manufacturers. I would not suggest attempting to unlock phones which have been locked to the "3" network as many have safeguards in place which will render the phone inoperable if attempts are made to alter network pairing. 3rd generation sim-cards are also incompatible with conventional GSM handsets, and vice-versa so unlocking would be a waste of time anyway. Stick with the supplied SIM, it costs a lot to call into 3 (ie if someone is calling you), but calling out certainly has rates which are comparable to other mobile networks.

charging/discharging dosn't make any difference the talk time and standby time is still the same as 3g is high drain on the battery ( changing the reception to 2.5g makes the times a little better though)

I bought the Motorola C975 brick of a mobile phone because the contract was cheap, offering 500 free minutes and 100 text messages per month. Boy, you get what you pay for. After 6 months I can't wait to get rid of it and I am going to buy a secondhand Nokia… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/12/2005 by joandlyn (1 review written)

All phones I have used in the past had good points and bad ones. However the Motorola C975 mobile phone was a bad experience throughout. This may also be a combination of factors like 3G's technical experts telling me I am making it all up.

Anyway, I sent away for a software upgrade to 3G as it kept on crashing (2x), and I had no phone during that period. However, while crashing slowed down, it still occurs and keeps on doing things like not ringing at all.

Conclusion: Not to purchase a… Read Full Review

I was quite excited when I was getting the Motorola C975 as it had everything I wanted (eg camera etc) but when it arrived I was quite disappointed with its size and how heavy it was. It was the first time I had a Motorola and I have never had one since. I just stick to Samsung!… Read Full Review

Personally, i'm pretty sick of people complaining about petty things with the Motorola C975. My brother and friend has it, and I'm getting it in 2 days. I understand the battery is dismal, but I cant stand people complaining about the fact that it doesnt come with games, bluetooth, etc, etc... to put it plain and simple for the phone fanatics: if you DO want a phone with bluetooth, great games, great ringtones, and all your other "special needs", then go ahead and pay a fortune for an expensive… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/07/2005 by prwrp (1 review written)

I bought the Motorola C975 in February of this year it's now July and I have had nothing but trouble with it! When I first bought the phone for £64.99 from Woolies I was amazed by the camera (being used to the Nokia 3200 camera anyone would be.) But after about 3 days I found the phone big, chunky and heavy. In about the 2nd week of having the mobile, the screen got its first scratch (of many) and it was right down the centre of the screen which made it hard to take good pictures. I love… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/06/2005 by felix04 (8 reviews written)

I bought a C975 last week, and I am getting along fine with it. Recordings, 3G it all works very well. It was £65.00, with 3G, video calling, email, MMS card, it's fantastic. I have only had to charge it once. The cover I have to admit is a bit rubbish, but it is replaceable.

All in all I think it's the best phone I have had so far… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2005 by bbrenf (2 reviews written)

I have now dumped the Motorola C975 that I bought as a standby phone to use on the 3 network. (3 issues are well known and the price reflects the woeful relaibility and quality of the service). The phone was a pre-pay handset, less than £50 and it feels like it. The battery cover was cheap and loose and power did not manage to last a full day even when used sparingly. The signal did not hold well at all and 'call failed' was a message all too often displayed. Lack of Bluetooth makes the C975 a… Read Full Review
