Review: Motorola ic402
The ic402 from SprintNextel is a workaday phone. Its basic feature set, PTT capability, and semi-rugged styling belie its blue and gray collar roots. While it makes strides in being a more up-to-date and pocketable device compared to its older cousins, the ic402 is still an iDEN phone at its core.
For an iDEN phone, it's nice to have CDMA calling and data capabilities as well. The fact that the data radio can be configured and controlled is yet another indicator this this phone is intended to be a workhorse for the hard-hat set. When CDMA coverage is spotty, the ic402 falls back nicely on its PTT capabilities, which are helped by strong iDEN coverage. For a working man's phone, though, the low battery life could be an issue for some.
