but could you at least improve the battery life before coming out with another disaster phone? This thing is awful.

It has the biggest battery you can get with it.... the battery alone retails for 70.00. Has 5.3 hrs of talk time!. Most other phones are 1 hr less than that.

But the battery doesn't last a day without charging due to the bi-signal feature of the phone. At least on the ic 502.

So a phone with two different radios uses more power. If keeping your battery charged more than a day is your concern, then don't use these phones.

hmmm...I suppose I'll stay and say whatever I want, because I'm American, and I've been given the freedom to chat on message boards, to the utter dislike of people such as yourself.

Eat a dewshe sandwich. This phone is crap.

The battery life on these ic phones is WAY better than on most Nextel phones. I can go 4 days without putting the phone on a charger, compared to my old i90, that had a maximum battery life of two days.

Sprint isn't even offering these phones anymore without the extended battery.

Nextel isn't going anywhere. Nextel Direct Connect will remain the name for Sprint's PTT phones, both iDEN, and the soon to be released HPPTT CDMA-based phones.

They're not going to be totally integrated into Sprint? I heard the Nextel name was going to be made obsolete?

All this hub bub for "chirps"?

No, the Nextel name was only removed from "together with Nextel," underneath the Sprint logo.

The reason the branding is so important is because Nextel is synonymous with PTT cellular phones. Nextel branding carries with it the same recognition for this that "Weed Eater" does for weed trimmers, "Xerox" for copiers, "Frigidaire" for refrigerators, and "Hyster" for fork trucks.

odd. I say ditch Nextel. Sprint can do all the PTT stuff. I just wish all sprint phones had PTT capabilities. It comes with their power packages anyway.

You see, that's the problem. Not all Sprint phones come with PTT capabilities, nor do their customers necessarily want that.

Nextel, prior to their merger, was used mostly by businesses, and all of their phones do have that capability. This is why their name has become synonymous with the PTT feature.

By comparison, both AT&T and Verizon offer PTT capabilities on their networks and phones, but nobody seems very interested. Even businesses that switch over from Nextel to one of them, rarely go with the PTT phones, but opt rather fo...

Sprint could have avoided this mess if their initial marketing strategies had not led people to believe that Nextel's iDEN network was failing and outdated. This failed tactic cost them a whole lot of loyal subscribers, who are now customers somewhere else.

The best marketing there is consists of telling folks you will make a great product even better, not "fix" something they never knew was broken.

For real. But I have a feeling this whole "unlocked phones" business will give them cred and customers. I mean, I like the LG Chocolate 2, but I hate Verizon. Bring it to sprint. It's great. Especially if I can get unlocked phones on ebay for them. This opens a wide door for Sprint. Hopefully it will project them forward from the third spot.
