I did the same - motorola V300 and 3 year plan from Rogers (700 minutes, phone and accessories for free). I do not have any major complains about the phone, it is pleasantly designed, voice recognition is working excellent, camera is quite decent, batteries last long and overall it is a pleasant thing to use. A few times (during weekend) I missed a number of calls (I am sure I was in the service area). The phone did not ring, and did not notify me about the missed calls. I have no idea what this was related to, on everyday basis it seems to work fine, so i t was probably a network problem.
Oveall, decent phone, question is whether it is worth its money - I would not spend it if it was not offered free.
I'm thinking about purchasing this phone with a 3 year plan... any recomondations I'd appreciate any feedback. Thankyou.
