    I saw it today in my local USCC store, it will be out within the week. I apologize for not getting the pricing on it, but I did get the pricing for the Touch Pro2, which will be $180 after rebate+upgrade.

    Yes, cheaper than any other carrier.

    Not a Moto-fan here. The last sentence surprised me:
    ” The phone’s price was not announced, but Motorola says it will be affordable.”
    It would be the first company that would bring a product on the market and inmediatly saying that it's NOT affordable :-)

    If you like to personalize your phone, don't choose the Crush. You can't use custom ringtones for individual contacts. I got mine today and am taking it back tomorrow to get a phone that is more personal.

    you can do personal ring tones without paying. if u want i will tell you how.

    I'm wondering if i should get this phone because i want a touchphone that doesn't require a internet plan but i want to be able to personalize it…is it really that bad?

  • Da 5 0

    it is a good phone. the txting is hard at first, touch screen qwerty is kinda small, but most the time the program it has will correct the mispelled words for you, it will also self correct. i have 2 phones u can send ringtones and save them as ringtones. u just cant load them on it thru the pc. or on another board a person said u can create or load old ringtones and send them to your phone thru myxer.com

    to me it is a small step up from a the lg glimmer.

    and if u ever have a problem with the voicemail icon not disappearing, you will have to wait till someone else sends u another voicemail.

    Could you please tell me how to use custom ringtones? I just got mine, and I'm frustrated trying to figure it out!!!

  • Jenn

    Yes please tell me how to transfer my music to a ringtone cause I've tried everything I know. Please help, thanks.

  • Michelle

    I bought the phone yesterday, I have the same problem. I Called us cellular they said it can not be done. They more or less want you to buy ringtones from them and then it will work. If you figure it out let me know. Michelle

  • Jenn

    Ok here is how you can get ringtones but ringtones only. To make contacts have ringtones you have to plug phone into computer go into media folder go to sounds transfer ringtones. Then send a pic messege with tone. Cancel message go to outbox and cancel message. it will play ringtone press stop, touch bell (sound) and then it will ask you to save as sound, ringtone, contact id…. save it as a ringtone. Hope this helps everone.
