Excerpt: The Motorola i1 is a great smart phone for the Nextel user that can't sacrifice the Direct Connect button for better/faster service and better phones on Sprint. The i1 is the BEST Nextel phone there is and the idea of having one with DC and running the android OS is great, BUT android 2.2 is out now (or better) and this only comes with android 1.5 :( and it was just released in the last couple months.
Excerpt: <p style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;">This phone is my first Smartphone so I won't be able to give a comparison to others, but I can say that I Love It! First things first, I have never had a dropped call, it gets excellent reception. The touchscreen is surprisingly easy to use, not overly sensitive where you are constantly selecting things you didn't mean to.
Excerpt: I bought this nextel a while ago. It's awesome because I was used to other kind of nextel. You know, the flip-thing. Well, that wasn't my case so I decided to give to the i1 a try. I had nothing to lose but too much to win. Well, it's simply amazing. I gotta say I don't use it as a prior phone because I would get bored in a hearbeat ha!
Excerpt: This motorola phone is a pretty good choice. All the other phones that are made like this one but its another brand seem to be having many problems. However my motorola phone does not have those type of issues. I enjoy my phone everyday it meets my needs. The service could stand to be a little better though I have problems with that I will have to say. But overall it was the best choice for this type of cell phone.
Excerpt: I have always had Motorola phones. Don't like and don't want to use any of these othe crazy models. I have to stay with nextel as Hubby has walkie talkie. Itried other brands with walkie talkie, they do not compare. My cell phone carrier has a buy back program. Motorola's have the best buy back price.
Excerpt: Many boost users have been awaiting this for a long time, and although a little on the bulky side i love this phone.To be the 1st smartphone for boost this phone is very advance for its time. Partnering with android allows this phone to have all the normal as every smart phone for a very low monthly fee of $50 or less depending on the plan. Many people have there own opinion of this phone but personally me being very aggressive with phones its perfect.
Summary: I purchased this phone for the purpose of having a sudo smartphone while still being able to use the IDEN network. For what the phone is in features, it's great, but rather limited. The level of firmware the phone has makes it dodgy at times. For the money, this phone has all the features, bells and whistles you'd expect in a smartphone, but it's your only choice if your looking for the IDEN networking.
Summary: I bought this item because it is the only walkie-talkie smartphone available. I was expecting to be able to download may useful apps, but since this model uses Android 1.5 (cupcake), the app variety on the market is very limited. Even if you try to go online to the Android market website, it won't let you download apps for this phone. It is good, but does not compare to other Android phones.
Summary: This is a great phone. As for smartphones and prepaid, it is pretty good with most of its features. I would not recommend anyone who is looking for speed with the internet to get this phone though. As it is a walkie-talkie based phone, its connection isn't always the greatest. I love the phone for the fact that I can use it with some Driod apps. But a lot of the apps do not work with this phone.
Good solid basic touchscreen phone, still has good value.....:)
8 November 2011
Summary: When this phone came out , it was a good innovation. Move foward to Nov 2011, and it seems dated. BUT it is a solidly built motorola phone, the features are still valid today. It is a no nonsense " basic, as in andriod 1.5" that is still relevant today. Better built and not as big screen, yet very usable. You can download many apps, unless they require androis 2.o.
