Excerpt: This phone is crap, I've had it for a little over a year and its falling apart, worse yet, I hardly use it!
it gets an ok signal
the wap browser is good enough
the mirror (a couple of days after getting the phone the mirror was so scratched that you cant see anything, so all it is doing is helping the phone to overheat)
the fact it is a boost phone
the "color" screen that has 4 colors outside of games
the included ring tones force you to...
Excerpt: i have this phone along side with my A630. i use my a630 for my main line. i use the i285 for the walkie talkie option. it is mainly to talk to my friends on the nextel network. it doesnt have many options with the phone but it does its purpose.
Excerpt: Considering the phones for a prepaid service you shouldnt expect something extraordinary. The phone is nice and compact, stylish, functional and has a nice color screen. it has a cool mirror inside the battery door and is nice and loud.
The only bad thing is the battery life. Dont buy this phone if you plan on talking alot.. it serves as a backup to my verizon 7000. And it lasts me just the day without ever using it. So plan on buying a backup battery.
HORRIBLE battery life
great size, fits perfectly in my hand
great voice quality
great reception (works great in my basement)
walkie talkie is really cool
mirror under the battery door, cool!
i got this phone because it was $39 at walmart and boost is now offering mobile to mobile with sprint and nights & weekends are only 10 cents! if you want a walkie talkie phone for a low price, get this phone!
Excerpt: This is a cool little phone. It has fun stuff like voice recording and java apps. I don't like the battery life and the display is hard to see in bright daylight. Otherwise it's cool and I think anyone who doesn't want a flip phone should get it.
