I ordered my i465 Motorola about 1 1/2 months ago from Boost Mobile. I'm a 2-3 hour per day heavy user. The phone easily charges within 30-45 minutes. I do quite a bit of texting as well. Texting goes through quickly and promptly. The battery life for this phone is excellent, the voice clarity is excellent and ability to easily text using the keyboard is excellent. I don't much care for the Boost Internet as its a bit slow and sluggish but for $50.00 a month with unlimited calling, unlimited texting and all government taxes this is one really great value. Coupled with the i465, its a must for everyone.
