First some background - I used to manage a huge VZW account at my previous job. Over 100 lines and LOTS of PDA's and smartphones. Of course, being in this, I tried pretty much every device that came out over the years and thus, had lots of fancy ones on my personal account too. The wife has a BB, I had a Droid and before those we had a myriad of others. My main functions are email, texting and calling. I take a few photos but not alot and I always longed for better battery life.

Enter my RAZR.

Sure it's not touchscreen and sure it doesnt have a 4.3" LCD display. But you know what?

I get emails through the VZW mobile email app, i can text and i can call. The best part is the extended battery, while still keeping the phone small, give me battery life of a week easily. I charge it on the weekends and thats all i need.

More importantly I dont need an extra $30 data plan to use it.

PROS : battery life, call quality, able to text, can use email, small size.

oh... and i can play Scrabble on it.

I had a Razr from 2002 to 2005, and I really loved that phone. It was an older model with a higher powered antenna too and I got signal practically everywhere lol.

HA! He can use his phone for a week without charging. I couldn't use my Incredible past lunch without charging it until I bought the extended battery.

I don't ever remember my RAZR lasting a week. I did love the phone though. It was the V3xx and it was ahead of it's time. My dad still has a RAZR and loves it.

I would agree here and show my love for the RAZR. I remember that I got one and it was a tank of a phone. Once I got a new phone, my dad had it for a year or two, then my mom used it until earlier this year.

I'm addicted to my Droid though.

I can still go a week on my touchscreen Samsung Eternity, but of course that isn't really a smartphone either. And it drops calls all the damn time, but every other phone I've had with AT&T has done the same thing so at this point I don't suspect the phone.

I had that phone. It's in the trash now.

Using a razr now. good phone. amazing battery life. I lost one of the "end knobs" where the hinge is. Hopefully it doesn't fall apart :|

I could go weeks on my LG Dare on a single charge. I miss feature phone battery life but could never give up the smart phone perks now that I have one.
