    Aug 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small size, features
    Cons: bent antenna

    Summary: Motorola has made another great phone. I first decided to give this phone to my mother for mother's day. I figured that the small size would appeal to her by allowing her to keep it in her purse. To my surprise my mother decided to take my used ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Stylish, Durable, Reliable, Excellent Built Quality, Name Brand, Tons of Accessories Available.
    Cons: No longer available, Missing Few Features, flimsy Antenna.

    Summary: I am a fan of Motorola's Startac design since the analog ages. Sure, it's not as light nor compact as the V.60 series phones. It doesn't have a ton of feautres commonly seen in phones from other manufacturers. In fact, it's yesterday's technology ... read more

    Pros: Small, Clear Screen, Long battery life
    Cons: A bit expensive

    Pros: Small easy to carry (same size as my old pager)
    Cons: none

    Summary: I have used a dozen or so Cell phones over the years, and all things considered, this is my favorite one so far. The sound quality is not quite as good as my old Audiovox (that one had the best sound quality I have heard to date) but this is pretty ... read more

    Cons: Flimsy Antenna, Weak Signal in Buildings, Weak Vibrating Alert

    Summary: I purchased my ST7867 three months ago and have been quite satisfied. The main reason I gravitated toward this phone was because of its small profile, as I wanted to wear it on my belt. There is only one caveat about wearing it: the flimsy retractable ... read more

    Pros: It's pretty tiny and it jiggles instead of rings if you want that.
    Cons: not the most solid construction. weak reception, drops calls.

    Summary: that's the only thing that i really like about this phone, that it is a bit on the small side. i'm a sucker and a sprint customer, where all phones are a bit junky, where customer service is less of a priority that anything else, etc. so i have gone ... read more

    Pros: Looks cool
    Cons: Never judge a book by its cover

    Summary: Well, picture the scene if you will. A cold autumnal day, the brown leaves trickling to the floor around me, my car broken down. But I'm safe, I'm carrying my startac, and I know that all will be well...or I should however I was wrong... The ... read more

    Cons: Fragile Antenna- but can get a new one for $15.00

    Summary: I got the 7867W because of it's small size and top-of-the-line technology. This is a dual-band phone. (i've NEVER been in a place where I couldn't get a signal) Also, the StarTACs have a remarkable reputation for elegance and clarity. The 7867W only ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, Great Styling
    Cons: May develop creaking sounds

    Pros: Dual-band, compact, great battery life.
    Cons: Top-heavy, cluttered display, flimsy attenae.

    Summary: Let's see. The Motorola StarTAC 7867 for SprintPCS was a replacement phone for me. I bought it used to save some money. It was a great idea not only for the price (I saved $90 off the MSRP) but the value of this phone. My experiences with ... read more

    Pros: great phone from a great manufacturer
    Cons: creaky plastics, high SAR

    Summary: I've always been a Motorola fan ever since the days of my old BRICK, the Motorola 8000. Those were the days when Motorola built phones you could run over with a car and at most end up with a few scratches in the plastic (don't try that trick at ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Size, battery life, features
    Cons: Menu difficult to navigate

    Summary: I purchased my StarTac to replace my aging Qualcomm 2700. I had used the phone for about a year, cancelled the service for a year, then reactivated it when I didn't have the money (or need, so I thought) to buy a new phone. The company I consult for ... read more

    Cons: Pricey, internet access not worth it (on any wireless)

    Summary: The Motorola StarTac ST7867 is a phone that reinforces the fact that wireless technology has not become just some new toy for the masses of America. With all the phones, from the pretty, shiny Samsungs to the Nokias with banana peel-like multi-colored ... read more

    Pros: Dual Band Phone
    Cons: Poor reception.

    Summary: I write most of my reviews on wireless phones and services, as that is what I do to make a living (sell phones, not write reviews.) Most of my reviews talk about the features of the phones, the service, and the quality of the phone, giving an overall ... read more
