another fat nextel with crappy service
My sentiments exactly. Nothing groundbreaking about this phone either. NEXT!
this phone is actually the replacement to the i710. it looks to be about the same size as the i560 (which is actually nextel's lightest phone) just minus the external display, and without the extra "ruggedness" this might be a smaller phone.
sorry this does not meet your requirements but there are plenty of other users around the U.S that do not NEED every bell and whistle and this phone will make a lot of users happy.
After all, I bought my phone to make phone calls, not to watch TV or listen to music.
hahaha very true. even though i do not like nextel's service at all (just switched from nextel to sprint) ... there is nothing wrong with an entry level phone. Theres actually some people out there who dont want to pay hundreds of dollars for a phone that broadcasts TV, plays MP3's, is as thin and flimsy as a piece of paper, and has a camera that you barely use.
Just because Nextel phones don't have every little feature pack into them doesn't mean they are bad. You'll find that many people out there don't need all that stuff, me included. I bought my PHONE to make a PHONE CALL, not to watch TV.
Compared to other entry level phones that are FREE after instant rebate, not $100 + mailin, this isnt that impressive. Come on, Sanyo 8300 is now $50 after mailin...
however when i worked at a service center, i saw the least amount of issues with the "replacement" falcon series (i.e. i560, i760 etc) so with this phone replacing the i710 (which is still more expensive) it might ACTUALLY be worth the $50 ROFL!
