To those considering the 8350i...
Bolt can be found on the crackberry website.
Also, there is always WiFi on the 8350i for data, although obviously it is not optimal to have to find a WiFi spot to get data.
As a Nextel user for many years (just regular phones, not BlackBerry), I can say truthfully that the iDEN network is working very well these days, at least in California.
That 8350i is a disaster though, I get at least three customers a day who have been doing troubleshooting for weeks and are at wits end. It just seems to dissatisfy many more customers than it satisfies.

Obviously, people still use the feature, else Nextel would no longer exist. I guess I forgot that everyone here takes everything %100 literally. Any employee who takes customer calls will find humor in the post as a whole, because it's things we repeat to customers with ongoing 8350i problems daily. I'm pretty certain that the original post answered every question that they ask about what we'll do about their 8350i's multiple repairs/replacements. Granted, this...
That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.
> They've only been doing it for 6+ years. Nextel was originally one of the first big adopters of corporate BB phones. Of course now Nextel has shrunk to almost nothing and the other carriers handily surpassed Nextel in the use of BB phones. But early on, Nextel had a very high percentage of corporate iDEN BB users compared to other carriers (this was back in 2004-2006 time frame).
The 7100i Nextel Blackberry had little to no problems. The 8350i is a mess. It's the most repaired and most replaced Sprint/Nextel phone, period. That's not speculation or rumor, this is based sheerly on the number of tech support tickets that are placed daily on this model alone.
