Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

10 months and now this??

I have had this phone for 10 months. I liked it up until a few weeks ago. My phone keeps turning off, when people try to call me all they get is the message that all circuits are busy. Battery is full and as soon as I try to do anything poof it shuts itself off for a few minutes. Also now my volume... More
I have had this phone for 10 months. I liked it up until a few weeks ago. My phone keeps turning off, when people try to call me all they get is the message that all circuits are busy. Battery is full and as soon as I try to do anything poof it shuts itself off for a few minutes. Also now my volume does not work. The only way I can catch a call is to have the phone on vibrate and hope to hear it vibrate on the table. NOT A GOOD SITUATION! My cell phone is the number I use for job calls!! Now starting tomorrow I have to go fight with Sprint to get a new phone..If I miss a call for work I am not going to be a happy camper! Less

Pro: it's good for general functions, basically calling and direct connect. The speakerphone is loud and clear (though lately it's gotten worse and has been dropping calls). You get used to the interface after a while. Con: I have to charge it every night; Motorola is different from any phone I'd used before (I once silenced it and it took me a month to figure out how to unsilence it, I'll admit I wasn't good with phones then) and the camera isn't really that great. Texting is annoying and sometimes the phone won't be able to retrieve a text. The clip it comes with tends to drop the phone if you lean over on the side you've clipped it to. Using experience: 30 months I live on a farm and I've beaten this phone to what should have been it's death. I dropped it seven feet to a concrete floor, and all it did was flip open and scratch. I accidentally dropped it in my horse's food bucket, he threw it out, and still it works. It has scratches and the silver/grey has rubbed off in places, but I have dropped it numerous times. I know other people who had the same phone were having problems with it and I may have just gotten lucky. All in all, I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone who is a heavy phone user; but for those people who just need a phone to keep in touch, it should work fairly well. Less

Its not worth the money!

from Phonedog
Pro: sleek. Con: Very bad reception. If it is at home, highway, city, etc... My last service was so much better. Be very careful, and never drop this phone. You Will have to replace it!

Pro: sleek. Con: Very bad reception. If it is at home, highway, city, etc... My last service was so much better. Be very careful, and never drop this phone. You Will have to replace it! This IS NOT a durable phone! Not worth the price. Using experience: 11 months The life of the battery is terrible. I had to replace mine on a brand new i850 with 7 months. The buttons stick. If you read the comments on here, they were posted months and years ago. Things have gotten a lot worse with this phone. Beware! Less

Meh..Not Bad

I need a Nextel for my work so this was my "step up" from old Nextel (i560, worthless piece of crap). So far no real complaints other than the battery life seems a little conservative.

I need a Nextel for my work so this was my "step up" from old Nextel (i560, worthless piece of crap). So far no real complaints other than the battery life seems a little conservative. Has good screen size and resolution, much better than my old one. Browser is much much better than earlier generations. Buttons are big and easy to toggle. Sound quality, both earpiece and speaker, are excellent. The digital camera gets the job done but it's mediocre quality. Not recommended if you are looking to snap a picture of something important. Has a stylish, not flashy, look and the blue readout is actually quite cool. Recommend if you are purchasing second hand, probably could do better for about the same money buying another model new.

i850 2 wks after received--would power off everytime I closed it & also during calls. Sprint gave me HUGE hassel when trying to get it replaced. On phone with them 2:15 PM until 4:43 PM, went through LONG list of people who couldn't make a managerial decision and would transfer me to someone else or just keep me on hold extremely long time. One tried to sell me more expensive phone and telling me they DID NOT HAVE another i850 IN STOCK--I called back and another salesman said i850 was IN STOCK and did I want one. During final call I requested anyone in management and a lady finally took care of my call properly and 2-day expressed new phone, no charge. The aesthetic design and ease of use is lovely. The durability and value is LOUSY. I'll post again if replacement i850 is faulty as well. Less

The only suggestion was to but the flip part which indeed will be more than the phone cost me. That is ridiculous. I think the phone is nice looking but I wouldn't recommend for anyone purchasing a new phone. Overall I am dissatisfied and feel as though I was tricked. THe phone sucks. Less

The reason I use Nextel's service is that I get better coverage here in N. Florida. The telephone was on special but I can see why. The telephone gives good service and I do use the camera which is OK but the pictures come out a little small even at large setting. BUT I would not recommend this phone for one key reason: The charger/computer connector. I have bad thoughts about the designer that created the plug at the bottom of the phone. The waterproof cover gets in the way of plugging-in andf you have to fiddle with it until you get a connect. I would not have another phone that uses this connection system...:( Less

THE WORST

from Amazon
First of all, I'd like to say that I don't personally know anyone who's completely satisfied with Nextel, their phones, and their service.

First of all, I'd like to say that I don't personally know anyone who's completely satisfied with Nextel, their phones, and their service. Dropped calls, frozen screens, random shut downs are regular occurances for a Nextel phone, and trust me, I've been through quite a couple of them. They all eventually break down. Anyone defending Nextel is probably working for them, or hasn't been with Nextel for over a year. We just purchased two of the i855 phones (our i830 had finally given out after less than 7 months) and one phone has already frozen and will not turn back on. In fact, at a restaruant the other day I over heard a woman stating that Nextel phones were built to break-down after a certain time (makes sense, the customer would need to buy another one). I assume the person on the other line asked her how she new such a thing because she responded "Well, I used to work for them." It's disgusting how they take advantage of their customers. After explaining the problems to customer services, they continue to bribe you with better, "newer" phones in exchange for the promise of a 2-year contract with them. Their service is horrible, and you're phone will eventually give you problems. I PROMISE THAT! Less
