Excerpt: boost mobile phones are very durable and can with stand any drop except in water. the service is great and easy to use. i own a i290 boost mobile phone amd i like it i think that boost mobile is better than nextel. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Excerpt: Why you may ask I gave this phone a 4 star rating. Well lets start with the fact I only paid $29.99 for it brand new. That was the total price no discounts for signing a contract or any thing. I really just bought this phone because it was so cheap and was planning on replacing it with a phone of higher caliber soon. well i changed my mind when i droped my phone on the concrete in a puddle of water. the same scenerio that has killed so many phones for me.
Excerpt: i found many undesireable flaws in the design and function of this phone. number 1 complaint: shape and size ; slips out of hand easily to easy to loose and in pocket you must lock the keypad or unwanted button action will occur. i was dissapointed in the lack of tools such as a alarm clock or calculator. software was ok and java apps selection good. i liked the loopt app allowing u and ur friends to see each others location via the phones gps capabilities.
Excerpt: It is a decent phone for the price. I actually get better reception than my i570 that I paid $400.00 for. The only thing is that it doesn't have other convenient gadgets like a calculator. But for the simplicity it is an ok phone.
Excerpt: this motorola i290 boost phone was an okay phone i think it was like one of the first upgradeds from the original boost phone. it was one of the first phones that ever came out.. it is a flat phone without a full keyboard... it is just a basic phone for people who don't really care for all the extra features that boost offers...
Excerpt: I recently acquired the Motorola i290. When I investigated Boostmobile cell phone service, the deciding factor of whether or not to use them was the fact they used Motorola telephones. I was always led to believe Motorola was a leader in cellular phone service. I paid over eighty dollars for the phone and being as cheap as I am, that was the most I have ever paid for a phone. It's a Motorola though!
My Motorola i290 is a great phone, especially for this price...

Excerpt: My Motorola i290 is one of my favorite phones! This is an awesome surprise- it was the second cheapest prepaid phone I could find. I love the shape and the controls. I am usually partial to flip phones, but I think this phone looks pretty cool. It's thin and sleek, although it sticks out of my pocketbook-purse.
Excerpt: This boost mobile phone is sleek and stylish. It's a great phone for a gift. The price is unbeleivable,you get a quality phone for half the price of any sprint, blackberry, or t-mobile. though the price si affordable, you still get the same perks as you would with a unessesary price. These perks include instant messaging, internet, phone calls, and good reception almost anywhere you go!
