    I went cell phone shopping last night and went to the local mall. I stopped at Nextel, ATT Wireless, Sprint, Verizon, Cingular stores, and nobody has the Motorola V3 Razor or V551. What's up with that!?

    Supposedly, Cingular is the only carrier that will sell/support the Razor. So what do you do if you're really happy with your cell phone plan, but they won't support the cell phone you want to use? I think all cellphones should be able to work with all carriers.:hs:

    I also want something with Bluetooth, but it seems like only a few of the Motorola models come with Bluetooth. :(

    you must have not went into a corporate cingular store b/c all of them carry the razr and the 551. companies cant make phones work on every provider b/c every providers network isnt capable of the same things. therefore they would have to make x amount of phones that do this, x amount of the same phones that dont do that but do something else, then x amount of the same phones that dont do either one of those things but does something different.

    did you ask about it? cause i went to the cingular store in nashville, and asked about the v551...the guy gave me a sideways look and then talked to the other agent for a little...he finally came out with it. he said he wasnt sure if he was allowed to sell it yet :ugh:

    so maybe they had it but just didnt have it on display yet or something :dunno:

    Don't know. I just wish that Verizon would sell and support the V3. :(

    Careful what version of 551 you get if you buy one. Ask and make SURE its not from the AA batch, they all have whitescreen issues.
