Review of my Cingular phone.

I love the Motorola V551. It's a medium sized clamshell with a silver and blue plastic casing.

It's sturdy and durable, I don't even know how many times I've dropped it and its kept going with nothing more than minor scratches.

It has mobile AIM preloaded which helps me keep in touch with all my buddies, a mobile web browser that lets me check news and weather (and with EDGE data support on the phone, its way faster than my old phone). It also has bluetooth which I absolutely love as it lets me transfer my pictures and videos back and forth to the phone and lets me make my own custom ringtones and upload them.

Battery life for the first few charges are so-so, but then I noticed it got way better after the first couple of charges. It lasts me about two to three days with a good amount of talking.

Call quality is great, I think its as much the network as it is the phone. On a trip to upstate NY I hit a deadspot in the middle of nowhere (wilderness) but other than that I was pretty impressed that I've never had a dropped call. The moto is a quadband worldphone so if I wanted to even go out of the country I'd get signal.

My overall opinion is that the phone is the best value right now in a Cingular phone. I've noticed most of the sales reps I've talked to have it, and its no suprise seeing how great this phone is.
