Product description

Product description

Designed for new mobile phone users, this is a very easy to use phone. To help bridge literacy gaps, the MOTOFONE F3 offers a redesigned user interface with innovative voice prompts in local languages to guide the user quickly and easily through menu navigation, messaging, and other functions. In addition, graphical icons visually illustrate the phone's features as well as network status and battery strength. Surprisingly thin and easy to carry, the MOTOFONE features a revolutionary ClearVision Display (CVD) that leverages Electrophoretic Display (EPD) technology to provide users with a large, high-contrast screen viewable even in bright sunlight. The ClearVision Display combined with a flush-fitting keypad and dust-resistant design makes the MOTOFONE durable in active everyday use. And it sounds great too - with polyphonic ringtones, speakerphone, and powerful volume - communication is loud and clear.

Incredibly simple to make calls, great clear sound, good speaker phone mode, long battery life. Don't buy if you send text messages though, the simplified screen make those difficult.

Do not buy from Pixmania_UK. they supply an EU spec which breaks when used in the UK and is not covered by manufacturers warranty. Customer service terrible too, avoid. Pay more for a genuine UK model.

I purchased this phone for my daughter who simply phones and texts her friends.She isn't interested in all singing and all dancing gadgets.We wanted her to carry a cheap phone to keep in touch but not carry something that would attract would-be thieves.At this price,if it gets stolen or lost,it's not a huge issue.The phone is a delight to use,it's very lightweight and pleasant on the eye.Quality for the price is great and i would recommend this phone to everybody who is looking for a basic phone.

I got this for £10 from Morrisons. The font size and screen are perfect for anyone with sight difficulty or needing reading gleasses. It is a bit annoying as you can't read texts without scrolling a lot but it serves it's purpose. Calling is easy and clear to hear. It's slim and battery good. I can see how it would annoy some but those of us who need the voice prompts to give confidence we are pressing the right thing it's marvellous! You can turn off the voice prompts if it gets too annoying. For the price I paid it's a simple phone, no fancy gadgets and would suit the older end of the market.

The clue is in the name "FONE" - it's just a phone. It's really easy to use, well made, the battery life is good, it is very lightweight, the speakerphone is loud, it has an alarm clock and it looks quite smart. Yes, texting is a bit poor, but at least the large characters are easy to read.. and you can read the screen in direct sunlight, no matter how bright it is. It's the kind of phone that will stand up to a bit of abuse, and if it breaks.. well, get another one.

I think some, if not all, of the negative reviews of this phone say a lot about our pampered, spoilt, western lifestyle.

Admittedly, this phone was designed for and is manufactured within 'developing economies' (mine states 'Made In India') and I'm not sure Motorola are doing themselves many favours allowing it to be marketed within the US/EU as anything other than a curiosity; but then, please refer to my opening sentence to how much of a shame that is!

Things that suit developing economies, are here as features on this phone; long battery life, ability to recharge from a bike dynamo (sadly this add-on not available in the UK - why? - it's not as if it needs to be type or voltage approved!) and most importantly a display that consumes next to no current, and is readable in bright sunlight as if it were printed black on white.

So, no, you can't take pictures, no, strangely you can't access Wastebook, and no, if you have 300 'freinds' that you definately text all the time, the phonebook won't be so accomodating for you. Texting full stop is not a joy with this phone, but it is possible, which is more so than lots of the recent trendy 'basic phone' offerings that are coming out of late at sky high prices. It also has a spoken voice option - and to the guy that complained it wasn't in his language on another review - make sure you buy the right version eh pal?! The UK/US english option is definately out there and both my F3's have it.

Motorola wanted to make a reliable, attractive, non far-eastern sourced phone that the typical Indian worker could afford without spending a months wages, and without being stuck trying to charge it up. In achieving this, they deserve an award. Of course, things move on, and this is now an old model, but it is brilliant for what it does...

nice simple cheap phone, big clear buttons and screen, i purchased it for the grandparents to try and simplify the technobable, keeps them happy rather then having to deal with some uber phone the salesman at the phone store sold/con'd them in buying.

Is exactly what I wanted, just a phone, nothing extra.
It's slim, has 5-6 days of standby power and the alarm is loud and annoying enough to wake you up.

I recently sold my smartphone (iPhone 3GS) with a desire to become more minimalistic and less dependent (and distracted) by modern technology. This is not to say I am becoming a total Luddite, as I still enjoy using my computer a lot, as well as my Kindle. They're useful and convenient.

Anyway, I bought this phone after reading that it uses an electronic paper display, just like the Kindle, and I decided to look into it. After receiving it I was surprised at how well-built the device is - and the best thing is the battery life, which I charge once a week only, despite making calls for one or two hours each day.

Highly recommended for minimalists and people who just want a PHONE and nothing fancy added.

Definitely deserves 5 stars.
