The only difference is the addition of Motorola's SCREEN3 technology that offers news and other information as a ticker streaming across the home screen. Cingular is the first carrier to support SCREEN 3.

Other features of the Motorola V557 include:

  • Quad-band GSM
  • EDGE high-speed data
  • Bluetooth
  • VGA camera

Cingular is selling the V557 for $99 after rebate and with a 2-year service contract.
