The Motorola V557's internal phone book can hold up to 1000 contacts while the phone's picture ID system allows you to assign pictures to your most common callers.

It also supports polyphonic ringtones as well as MP3 ringers, allowing you to use portions of your favorite songs to alert you to incoming calls. For times when you want to be discreet, there's a vibrating alert. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear while voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. Because the Motorola V557 is Bluetooth enabled, wireless headsets can be configured with the phone for total handsfree operation. The Motorola V557 is a messaging and wireless Internet powerhouse. Support is built in for sending and receiving pictures, text, graphics, sound and video via messages. When used in combination with the phone's built-in still and video camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun.
