I have owned a Motorola Razr for the past year and I love it. I have my Razr through Verizon Wireless and purchased it for $250.00 in the pink color. One of the best features about the Razr is its small size. This phone is not nearly as bulky and does not take up as much room in my purse or in a pocket. This phone sits nicely in a sewn in pocket in my purse without taking up too much space.

I was very impressed with the colorful display on the Razr and the large keypad. The buttons for the numbers which are also used for text messaging are a nice size and make predictive text easy and fun. The display allows you to choose personalized wallpapers either from the camera's pre-loaded sample pictures or pictures taken with the camera on the phone. I've chosen to use pictures taken with the camera on the phone for not just my wallpaper, but also as call specific ID's (more about that later). The colors on the display are bright and give you the chance to choose various color themes for the menus. The one downsize, or rather, something to used to on the Razr keypad is the main menu button, which is the circle at the center of the phone. The button is somewhat small and generally I use a fingernail to tap that button. Otherwise, the keypad and side buttons are great features that allow you to access speaker phone, voice activated calling, and volume controls.

One of my favorite features of the Razr is the ability to choose specific ringtones and picture ID's for each contact entry. For example, I took a picture of my mom, selected one of her favorite songs, applied them to her contact information, and whenever she calls me, I hear her specific song and her picture pops up on my "caller ID". It's a really fun way to personalize and have fun with your phone. This is a great feature if you are a bit of a music freak like I am.

The Razr provides ample space for contacts (somewhere in the neighborhood of 320 contacts), saves around 350 text messages in each folder (sent, received, etc), and provides a great battery length. I can usually go 2 to 2.5 days without charging. The one downside I have to the Razr's battery configuration is there is an extremely annoying "low battery" beep that users are unable to diable. In addition, the low battery notification is pointless because I have had many, many times where I've had a low battery yet have still been able to use the phone for up to 45 minutes. My phone has beeped the low battery notification for a full day before!

Overall, I love my Razr phone and even when my two year period is up, I don't think I'll upgrade. I'm completely happy with my Razr!
