Woohoo! I'm TOTALLY PSYCHED. The calls will be GREAT. Android on the Nextel Network? Total Win, like the 8350i.

- Surf the web at the speed of smell!
- Every oriface is made to be packed with dirt, because we know how much you like to call Nextel!
- Amaze your friends with the unpredictability of a sweat-laden touchscreen!
- Did we mention that is a RUGGED touchscreen? It practicly bounces off of walls!

- The Android platform is awesome.
- The phone is listed as being rugged.
- WiFi can FLY, and is included at no extra cost.


That's right, I can sell this phone while being honest. I just might forget to bring up a few things.

Very Happy

It sounds like you know a thing or two about phones. I do not recommend the i1 to you.

Are you asking about if the time that it takes the network that the phone is connected to is 'quicker' and will speed up downloads (texts, emails, apps, etc.) on the device? Or are you asking if the operating system and other software on the phone is faster?

Just because you upgrade to the i1 from an 8350i, doesn't mean that the network is changing.

The Nextel network is the same network it's been on for a while. Sprint/Nextel hasn't upgraded the speed of the Nextel network for ages, so, the length of time it takes to download a text or an app won't change.
