Summary: This phone is factory locked to Boost Mobile and able to work only for Boost network. It is not a unlocked phone (I found it categorized as "unlocked phone"). It wont work on all iDEN (push to talk) network such as NEXTEL worldwide. The lifetime of battery is weak, maybe because it is used.
Summary: In a word, well... I'm probably not allowed to use THAT word in an Amazon review. Do not buy this phone. By everything that is holy, DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. I bought one when they first came out, and promptly went back to blacberry. It took me years to get over it. Hopefully everyone on the design team is sterile. Hopefully everyone on the marketing team had a quantum personality change, and now use their powers for good, not evil.
ebay can not allow the existence of such seller, kill people.

Summary: I like this phone, because it is intelligent, has a walkie-talkie and micro-channel function.However, the seller of goods does not match with the description, unlocked cell phone can not be unlocked, simply to deceive buyers.
Summary: I was looking for the updated version of this phone, but found out that it only comes with the 1.5 firmware, which sucks badly because it's very limited on the Android Market! There's only so much you can download and acquire and the market only supports android version 2.1 and up! Plus, this phone freezes and doesn't dial out when prompted! I have to restart this device in order to make a phone call at times! I see why the prior owner was selling it for such a low cost!
Summary: I have had the Motorola i1 for approximately one year. This is what I've experienced so far: Mildly happy first 2 months. After.............. Phone starts heating up and "cycling" constantly. Texting sometimes takes hours to both receive and send. Phone dies within two hours. Have to keep it on "airplane" mode to keep a charge. Visited my local dealer, his words "those thing are absolutely worthless". Did offer to give me a new one though....Guess he felt bad.
Summary: I bought a Motorola i1 with Boost Mobile. For a phone that cost over $300, I expected some level of quality. While the OS is not ideal, it works decently. I have been able to download some apps for it, but between the issues with Android Market and the older OS on the phone, there is a limitation to what you can do with it. For instance, the Compass and GPS apps will not download.
