I had previously had my motorola v551 since 04, then the screen went out March 11th.

Everybody needs a good bic lighter Bob... You never know when the end of a rope will become frayed, a firework will need to be lit, or you will wind up at a Journey concert;)

I'm going to keep a close eye on this KRZR.....
if it gets any worse, and when I raise hell with Cingular, I'll just but an unlocked v551 or v557 from ebay.

I worked on my 551 and an old 400 at the lake...
I can take each of them apart now in under a minute, and switch screens!

here's something to think about....
Cingular stores had the CRZR for $215.00 with a 2 year contract at one store, and $249.00 with a 2 year contract at another store....
wal-mart had the same phone $98.00 with a 2 year contract!!!!

I was eligible for an upgrade, so I didn't have to enter into another contract.

I am switching carriers in April... I'm buying my own phone, I'm not getting sucked into another two years with a phone company that sucks!

What do you need a cell phone for anyway? What gets parked at Mag Mania stays at Mag Mania!:o

I was at the end of the warranty Nov 06, still in the verizon contract until Nov 07... I had to buy. I went LG, which I know is cheap, 129.00 $50.00 rebate, but at least if it breaks It'll not sting quite so much.

Once you walk it out the front door of the store it's used. That's how it works with cars anyway... That stinks though.. wonder what the cingulair charges the ins. carier for the phones???

wouldn't have it any other way, but I had just gotten off the phone and layed it on the console while driving.....

cingular's story to me was that they (insurance carrier) would not insure newly released phones for up to a year on the market....

that sucks:mad:

I wonder why they can't make the cases out of the same polycarbonate stuff that CD's are made from:confused:

My Motorola RAZR gave up on me today (hopefully battery?). It lasted a whole year and a half after I went waterskiing with it in my pocket. I'm impressed it lasted that long.

I have a virtually new V551 for Cingular if you want it... I ended up getting my brother's old Razr about a month after getting a new V551.
