Toddler-friendly phone?

I came across this review of the Motorola V3x phone, which has some rather weird use of English:

You just need to shift the toddler on the internal side of the phone to change the modes. The switch is rather big, according to the lens’ size, to prevent the mechanism from faults at a hit and mechanical impact. It will take you only a second and no effort to switch modes in the new V3x, though the toddler is quite tough. With time and active use, the toddler may get distorted and you will need to improve its position in guiding rails. Such construction implies problems potentially and now consider frequent falls. However if you treat it carefully, the toddler will cause no problems.

Given that I have a toddler, is this the ideal phone for me?

    I wouldn’t recommend the V3x. I have both a V3 and a V3x, and the V3x, while having 3G and anti-aliased fonts, it’s build quality is no where close to the original V3. It’s keypad is squeaky, and the phone is more plasticky. If you want t nice phone, get the original V3 instead. It’s half the price too. I think the only circumstance you should ever buy the V3x in is if you really need the 3G.

    Also, if you buy it with the Vodafone crippled firmware that Vodacom installs on it, it’s even worse. And if you want to install the original Motorola firmware, you loose your gaurantee. Yesterday I ordered a Nokia E61 from MTN, since I don’t want to buy a phone again with dodgy firmware versions installed by Vodacom.

    E61 – nice! Apparently you can update the E-series firmware from the phone itself by downloading a new image from Nokia’s site. It’s about time phone manufacturers offered that…

    Maybe I’ll hang onto my Nokia 9500 brick until the iPhone is available :-)
