      like a boss!

    I guess that’s it for April in Telus. Telus release this, the nexus S and the Fascinate 4G. Three outdated phones, I am thinking about switching. I think I can deal with bad customer service (other than that, BELL and TELUS are the same).

    Well, at this price, it’s not bad.
    There isn’t that many phone around the $380 mark and the fact that it can go underwater is a bonus.

  • Nick

    This is just about the only phone I’d be willing to sign a 3 year deal for (if the price was right), because it’s the only phone I’m confident would actually survive the 3 years.

      That is until you run into a technical problem (software, hardware like display not working or not booting) and Motorola aren’t going to back you up on that.

    this phone had tons i mean tons of returns in korea due to manufacturing defects including light leaks of lcd.

  • cody

    That no-term price is VERY respectable!

  • scout247

    Buying this no contract tomorrow! I bought the T-Mobile one, but it did not work for Telus frequencies so I sold it to my roommate on Rogers. Whoopee mine will be all black, looks better than the white band on his.

    • zorxd

      Unless you sold it at a very low price, your roommate got screwed. The T-Mobile version will work in GSM/EDGE mode only on Rogers.

  • Daniel

    Purchased one today!

    So far so good, its so light. Going by the reviews I was expecting some sort of heavy brick.

    Now time to customize!

      Daniel (and Scout247), let us know how it goes with your Defy. I’m curious to know how you like it after a few days with it.
