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 WiMAX? Are the two even capable of playing nicely together or no?

For those "stuck" with iDEN as a company requirement, who want a smartphone, this is a Godsend.

It's not for people with a choice of networks.

Exactly and MetroPCS customers (in AWS markets anyway) didn't get that on a smartphone until the recent Blackberry that came out. Most of those AWS markets on Metro are 1x I believe which is painful for a smartphone but data on iDEN is useless. What ever happened to WiDEN anyway? At least that would have helped some.

This phone is the answer to a lot of people's fervent prayers.

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 stop hating!!

misschris hits the nail on the head, as did the review itself.

People who berate the i1 because iDEN data is slow, absolutely do not understand the Nextel user, so they should just stop their inane comments that degrade the i1 for that reason. They are ingorantly comparing apples to oranges because they have no idea of the wants/needs/psyche of the Nextel user. Given that they have absolutely no understanding of the Nextel user...
