I was seriously considering ditching my Blackberry for this phone until I read that you cannot play music on it. There is no music player and no file management feature to find/use .mp3(or the like).... With that massive external speaker setup that should have been a priority element.
I have used an i580 since it was introduced (actually I've had 3 in a row after the previous one died) because it was the Nextel phone with the best reception. But the Nextel antenna nearest my house has been decommissioned.
I'm going to have to switch from Nextel to Sprint and am considering the DuraXT. I'm on the fringe of the nearest Sprint antenna. In the past, the Sprint phones which I have tried at my house have not gotten good reception.
How does the DuraXT reception compare to the i580 reception?
How does the DuraXT reception compare to other Sprint phones reception?
For a phone that can resist being thrown in water, and "blowing rain" this device sure seems to have alot of holes in it's body. I would be interested to hear from an owner of this device, just how rugged / water resistant is it ?
