About Time!

Finally, Motorola and Nextel release an iDEN phone that'll be worth the over priced costs of their phones! This phone looks great, especially the Bluetooth and large display. A+++

How To Edit Review?

Want to edit i605 review titled: 'Excellent Nextel Offering...'. Would like to improve formatting for improved readability and give the phone 4.5 stars (accidentally left the rating on the default 2.5 of which it is certainly not).

Using i605 phonebook after service terminated

Can somebody comment (confirm, deny, clarify)
the statement from another user review: ... »

My service was cut off because of financial reasons
and when I tried to access the stored phone numbers
to call from my home phone,
the screen was cut off as well with the service.

Loaded it with i325 antenna

I took the non-retractable antenna from an i325 »

and attached it to my i605.

So far it seems to work very well! The mechanical properties of the connector for the two antennas are identical and it would appear that the electromagnetic properties are, ahem, compatible.

That is to say, I think I am getting the same or better radiated transmit power with the transplanted antenna.

I did this because

  1. I hate the extend/retract routine
  2. the antenna is nice to grab when removing the phone from the holster
  3. I want optimal signal strength for incoming call notifications
  4. I am sick of accidentally retracting the antenna during a call by running it into the brim

Does work with Mobile Email Enhanced

One of the reviews says that the i605 doesn't work with Mobile Email Enhanced.

In fact, it does. I'm using it!

Very handy Java app-- just run it in the background and all email (and calendar, contact) info is pushed out to the phone as it happens. Much nicer than using a WAP interface for email.

Not quite a blackberry, esp. w/o QWERTY keyboard (which can be added when needed), but a step in that direction.

The Email app doesn't appear to be a huge draw on battery life, although it seems that the battery will last longer without it running. Leaving it running is the whole point, though, so that your email will just "be there" when you have a few seconds to look at it.

One of the best parts about Mobile Email Enhanced is that...

did it again

yes, nextel succeeded once again to put out a great phone. The screen is HUGE, and the camera quality is good. It also seems durable. I dropped a demo of it, and didnt do any visual damage.
