Excerpt: I would call this phone a phone you'd want to use if you were really really desperate. And even when you are desperate, it's not very reliable at getting a signal. It's not user-friendly in the least compared to most basic phones. In the week I had to use it, I had a problem with calls cutting out, messaging, and it shutting off. At least you can drop it off a building and it'll still work right? Then again, I never tested that.
Excerpt: This is a great phone - for making PHONE CALLS. The call clarity is fantastic. It will txt just fine, and in my market (indiana) texts are quick (e.g., within 10 seconds) . The internet browser the phone comes with is useless and painfully slow. Search for Opera Mini 3 and put that on the phone and your internet will improve drastically. There are a lot of other apps out there for this phone like gmail, life in pocket gps, weather alert, etc.
Pros: Durable. Great call clarity, Good Phone. Lots of free apps.
Cons: Small screen size, included browser is awful (but can be replaced with opera mini 3)
Excerpt: got to say i had this phone 1 and a half years. 2 days ago, the volume kept getting turned off, today after working with the customer service, i can't even send or receive calls: just says call failed: system busy etc etc. i had a razr for 2 years before this and it has worked great for me.. so much for its military spec features..
Cons: bad design, phone heats up, keys and features, not very manageable and what good is a dead phone!
Excerpt: the fone is ok but the service from boost sucks. i almost never get to talk on it i have the monthly unlimited plan with boost and everyday since i bought the fone (i bought it sep 1) every time i want to use it i get a msg on the screen that reads "system busy try later 26" and its not the fone, its the service because i have 2 other boost fones i455 & i855 and they were all doing the same thing.
Excerpt: I couldn't be any happier with this phone, or Boost Mobile. I guess I don't understand how they are owned by Sprint/Nextel, because Boost customer service is miles above their own. Also, for the price, $50 for the phone, and $50 per month, unlimited everything, it just can't be beat, not even by other pre-paid services. Add the fact that the phone can be used as a dial up modem in a pinch, what else could you ask for, for so little money?
Pros: Mini-usb port, works as a modem for a laptop, small, great sound, awesome price
Cons: Slow on the web on the phone, and when used as a modem
Excerpt: My favorite of the three iDEN phones i've had the chance to use over the summer. It's basic and doesn't pack much pizazz, but there's something to admire about that. Pros: -good reception and call quality. -speakerphone is outstanding, better than the i776 -walkie/talkie mode with a claimed six mile radius.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for a while and the phone constantly freezes. All of the buttons stop working and I am unable to even turn the phone off. I have gotten 2 new i335 phones and they all have the same problem. Some of them act up right away while others take a little while before the buttons freeze. I don't think it matters who your service is through the phone itself is garbage.
Excerpt: If you like a phone that is rugged, basic and just well works good as a phone than you will like the i335. Pros: Low Cost Loud Audio Clear Audio Loud & Clear speakerphone Easy to use Rugged rubberized case Has cool walkie-talkie feature Cons: Display is kind of low resolution Works on the Boost iDen network. Really nice for those that just want a simple, basic, rugged phone to talk to people.
Excerpt: At first this phone was wonderful. About 5 months after the purchase, I would be in the middle of a conversation and the phone would shut off for no reason. The battery is not very good either. It would stay charged for about 6 hrs. a day. I loved this phone at first, however in the end it was a loss!!!!!!
