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, they really should just stop making irrelevant comments. Many Nextel users do not want any type of social networking capability on their mobile devices, so stop bemoaning that fact regarding the i1 and just let it be the phone it is for the intended market.

Nextel & iDEN are never going to give users an experience like 3G or 4G networks and/or advanced OS's like Android or the iPhone or even Blackberry OS can. It was never intended to compete with or replace the 3G/4G/smartphone experience offered by other carriers. It is a wlecome upgrade to the basic Nextel/iDEN user who on occasion can use the added capability of WiFi data.

Having high-end hardware combined with complex operating systems is nothing but a liability if all one is looking for is a rock-solid phone with absolutely stellar PTT capability. Ths i1 allows those Nextel users that can also benefit from the occasional connection to WiFi for email once or twice a day, and/or the use of Telenav, but who absolutely do not need nor want the high-end glitz and social networking capability. Can't the 3G/4G/smartphone/social-networking users grasp that simple point and leave it at that?
