Excerpt: This phone is great, It might not be a flip phone but for the price, you cant beet it..This phone will do everything you want it to do plus some. I highly suggest this phone to a new nextel user.
Excerpt: After deciding to switch carriers from AT&T to Nextel because of the popularity of the Direct Connect the next decision was which phone. I spent many hours on the net and in different stores deciding on which model. While I like the attractiveness of the flip style I have gotten poor reviews from friends on the performance of them. After weighing cost/features/ and size I decided on the i85s. With the rebates and reduction in price I picked mine up for around $50.00.
Excerpt: The Motorola i85s is the epitome of why many businesses choose nextel over other carriers. All iden motorola phones are solid and can stand up to lots of abuse, and this phone is no exception. I've dropped this phone on numerous occasions, and it holds up like a champ, this phone is SOLID. The phone is designed for use as a "phone", imagine that.
Excerpt: Of all the NEXTEL phones that I owned (4 total) this was my favorite. I loved the durability of the phone. I had the "extended" battery and I was able to go up to a week without charging. I had great reception. All the speakers were loud and clear and the phone itself felt good in my hand. One of the drawbacks to this phone was that it is so large it is not easy to carry in your pocket but I used a clip that attached at the bottom.
