Even though iDEN is gone... on Sprint, it makes a decent 2 way
Download addresses into smartphone???
I got an i1 to replace my Blackberry 8350i which took a bath in a swimming pool. I thought I was upgrading but I wish I had just purchased another BB. I had the BB contacts all sync'd...

nice phone but.....
Confused about the rugged part....
I know this phone is going to be a boon for Nextel, Southernlinc and Boost Mobile. But here is the thing.
How in God's name can you call a phone Rugged when it has a ton of Glass real estate? Is the glass shatter proof? I would be scared of having the damn thing on a holster or in my pocket in the chance and if I drop it the glass would spiderweb...
I just don't understand the purpose of this phone--
--yes, it's 'ruggedized', but why buy it if you want an Android device? It's useless with iDen data.
I agree. It totally defeats the purpose. Would it be even possible to build a phone with iDEN and ...
It's not for people with a choice of networks.
People who are already using Nextel know data is lousy. The fact that this phone has wifi is great.
And as soon as cdma/evdo/gsm can chirp as fast as Nextel, maybe y'all should just ...
another fair and balanced review!
This phone has been anticipated for a long time, at least in a strong Nextel market like the one I live and work in.
Thanks for pointing out the pros and cons honestly!

I have to ask, "WTF, Sprint?" Why have you not done ANYTHING with Nextel since picking up the network?
If Nextel was still independent, they would have developed their own 3G/4G network by now. Sprint, on the other hand, has done absolutely nothing with Nextel. They seem embarrassed by it.
The 3G/iDEN "hybrid" phones did work, BTW. My ic902 has been a great phone and it works better than any other Sprint phone out there. I just wish they would list the complaints that people had with the technology.
In short, if the phone is not at least 3G, then Sprint might as well NOT RELEASE it. Keep your junk, and offer us something that works, Sprint!!!
PTT Android on VZW
But I don't think iDEN and Android will be good for each other data speed wise. Correct me if I'm wrong. If you really want to have lots of 3G coverage on an Android phone you can get one on Verizon.
But what about PTT? You can download an app for PTT that runs over 3G. No it doesn't work like iDEN it works like a regular walkie-talkie. Anyone that's on the same channel as you can hear you, even if they're overseas. Newer updates seem like the developer is trying to go in the direction of personal channels and the like. The paid version will let you use the camera button as a dedicatd PTT butto...
