This phone is terrible

I was excited to get my new I880 two years ago when it first hit the market.  After the first week, I was disappointed.  Since then, I have had the camera worked on 3 times and replaced twice.  The inverted screen issue happened to me after having the phone for two years.  Now it won't work with an automated answering service number (backline).  It calls in, but I can't hear anything.  The other end can hear me, but I can't hear them.  My other phone (SPrint) works fine with the number.  Nextel customer service has been good in replacing the phone, but what a POS.

Not the best

I can't stand how long this phone takes to "download" a text message! I've had to wait up to ten mins just to open a text that says "ok" it's ridiculous. The screen is a good size and easy to read, Mp3 player is good but its hard to get songs on and its hard to put songs on to use as ringtones. The volume is very loud witch personally i ' think is great, even on 1 its loud. For what it is its an ok phone but i'm deffinatly looking to upgrade to something different, I text frequently and this phone is horrible for texting. Battery life is pretty good and its fairly durable, although the screen goes black randomly and it freezes often.

This phone in my opinoin is very good but for a few little things. One thing is the little hissing in volume that the other person hears. The quilitys are very good Iam saying that coming for the i870, screen looks very good easy to read.Also the camera light could be better to lighten up the picture to be taken, I 870 was brighter. Other than little things like that, I am very happy with this phone.

i880 review

the only improvements that i've been hoping for with nextel for the past few years are yet to be implemented. i would like to see a security code lock option only for accessing the multimedia in the handset, i would like to have the ability to use my phone with fast internet surfing abilities such as the 2.0mbp's (mega bytes per second) featured with some mobile phone carriers on certain models. these are life necessities and are pretty cool to have as well. if the i880 had those two things i would rate it a 10 because it has everything else.

pretty decent

the i880 has better signal strength than the i870. it also has coverage where my i870 did not. i'm told it works on 2 frequncies instead if just one like most nextel phones. the sound quality is excellent and it looks really cool. i just wish the coverage area with nextel was better.
