ICON Loading...

Motorola improves on a classic with the U9 phone. This slim, stylish phone looks as sharp as ever and is filled with even more features. The camera has been boosted to 2.0 mega-pixels for print quality pictures. Stereo Bluetooth lets you listen to your music like it was meant to be heard and take calls without having to change headsets.

Keep in touch with your friends by using AOL, Yahoo!, MSN or ICQ instant messaging services. Or you can send emails and text messages. It’s a 3 band phone so you can give them a call. The phonebook can store pictures taken with the on-board 2.0 mega pixel camera so you can see who is calling before you answer.

The phone is designed to help keep you safe, and legal. Instead of holding it to your ear you can use a Bluetooth hands free device or the built in speakerphone. Voice-dialing lets you do it all without touching the phone.

Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered “tampered with” or “defective”.

5 out of 5 eggsLuv My U9

Pros: Worked right out of the box.
Brought my contacts in flawlessly.
Plum-a-licious purple.
Camera amazingly good, even in odd lighting (and I use a 10mp for work).
Airplane mode (disable network).
Up to 4gig memory card!

Cons: Not enough preloaded ringtones.

Other Thoughts: Anyone who says purple is girly is living a dull life indeed.

4 out of 5 eggsKinda Girly

Pros: Size and shape.
Expandable memory.
Stealth display.
Clear and bright main display.

Cons: no 3G
A bit girly.

Other Thoughts: I bought this phone to replace a dying RAZR and sure am glad I upgraded to the U9. The phone arrived completely unbranded I dropped my SIM card in and everything worked fine. The purple is a little on the girly side but not bad, if Newegg gets the black ROCKER version I will buy another and give this one to my wife.

It is great phone, the main display is bright and sharp (even in daylight) way easier to read with my tired eyes than the RAZR. The size and feel are just about right. Even though it is a bit thicker than the RAZR the size, rounded edges, and lighter weight allow it to fit in a pocket unnoticed. The front stealth display is just awesome, even though it is hard to read in daylight it is just plain cool. So far battery life seems to be fine, but my old phone may have gotten a hair better reception.

Beware it takes a newer/smaller USB plug and only works with the latest version of MOTO phone tools.
