Motorola M800 Tested

4 months old and the built in speaker phone mic has failed, note plug in external mic hanging below. The speakerphone is also stat icy. The handset clip had broken, note bungie cord and duck tape. This is also the 3rd handset. The complete unit was already replaced once under warranty.

The unit has been replaced again under warranty due to the usb port falling off the circuit board and pulling out of the phone. Also the spring failed in the handset holder.

Update: Motorola has decided to site abuse and will not stand behind their product. The failed phone has been returned and the new replacement is being returned to Motorola.
