Summary: I have Cerebral Palsy and am also hearing impaired. I like this particular cell phone because it is loud! and easy to use. I wish Motorola would bring this back into production and start selling them again brand new. I wish I hadn't given up my original i1000, it was still pristine shape. Others have broken off the outlet cover for the charger, mine wasn't.
Summary: I have used the I1000 for years and would not go to the new little ones unless I could not buy these anymore. My husband and kids all have the new little ones and I can never figure them out or see the screen. I am so glad that I am still able to purchase these on ebay. I give the walkie-talkies to all my employees and they are very abused but keep on ticking.
Summary: LIKE THE SIZE.....LARGER THAN MOST LOVE THE WALKIE/TALKIE FEATURE, WOULDN'T BE WITHOUT IT DISLIKE THE BATTERIES RUNNING LOW SO FAST, NEEDS IMPROVEMENT DECIDED TO BUY BECAUSE OF WALKIE/TALKIE FEATURE WITH NEXTEL/SPRINT PUTTING IN MORE TOWERS, I EXPECT THE SERVICE TO IMPROVE AND IT ALREADYS BEATS MOST SERVERS. PHONE IS EASY TO USE, EASY TO PROGRAM, HAS A HANDS FREE FEATURE WHEN SOMEONE CALLS YOU, WHICH CAN'T BE BEAT.
Summary: I've had one of these phones since 2001. I still have the original battery and I keep in on at all times. Even in the charger. I dropped it I don't know how many times and I even kicked accross a parking lot by mistake after dropping it. This phone is one of the best, if not the best phone Motorola ever made. It's a no frills, do it all phone that takes a beating!
Summary: This phone holds a good charge and works great as a cell phone and walkie talkie. It's a perfect phone for someone who doesn't need "bells and whistles" but wants a phone they can talk on AND two way talk on!
