The phone is ok, I guess

 

Sep 23, 2009 by Jaden10

I work for a Boost Mobile Authorized Dealer and we have the i9 for both Boost Mobile and Nextel and I have this to say.

It is one of the sleekest phone I have ever seen for a iDEN network. The phone is perfect for someone who likes having a stylish phone. However as someone who uses and swears by my i580, this phone feel flimsy and easily breakable. I would not want to drop this phone or bump into a hard corner or get caught out in the rain with this phone.

While the feature set is nice, I prefer my i580 because I know no matter what I do during my day I know the phone will work. And will survive anything I throw at it. If (and it is a very big if) I were to buy this phone I would only have it on me if I was dressed up with a formal dinner or meeting to go to. Other wise I would pass this phone up.

Major Disappointment

 

Mar 24, 2009 by musicmangd

I was waiting for this phone to be released for quite awhile, and it definitely has not been worth it. In the end I went back oy i880 which is a far superior phone.

Pros:
-Typical RAZR looks
-Pretty Good Reception
-Nice and big(but battery killing) displays

Cons:
-Battery life(hardly lasts a day)
-Sound(Almost every Nextel phone I have had, has had a stronger, louder and clearer sound than this one)
-Speakerphone is too quiet
-Dropped calls(First time thuis has been an issure for me, probably due to buolt in antena)

Thsi phone was definitely not worh buying and for now I am sticking with my old phone until I see what's next.

Too Little Too Late

 

Mar 23, 2009 by NEgadgetguy

This phone has come so late to the party that despite it's sleek looks, it is already obsolete.
I agree this is the nicest phone in Boost's lineup but not because of the phone. It is simply because there are only a couple of phones to choose from to begin with.
Most Nextel phones that are half the price are much more powerful than the i9. I am reurtning this phone beacuse I need more than 2 big screens and way way way oversensitive touch controls.
Battery life on this piece of junk is also the worst as I can barely get a day out of it. Batteries on Nextel phones are usually pitiful to begin with, but this thing is just miserable.

If QVGA abnd big screens and decent reception are all you care about, then go ahead to pick this thing up, but from what I have seen, the phone you already have is probably better. Motorola should not have brought its RAZR line of phones here, and if they had to they should have done it years ago when everybody else got it. It's overpriced and overhyped junk.

All Looks and No Personality

 

Mar 17, 2009 by XXX

It took Nextel/Boost two years to come out with their version of the RAZR2 and they did a poor job with a phone that is already antiquated out of the starting gate.

Pros:

-Looks. It is a nice looking and non-bulky phone that very easily pocketable.
-Screens. Beautiful screens, but anyone who has seen or ownded any previous RAZR2 over the last couple of years already knows this.

Cons:

-Battery life. You better buy a couple extra batteries as this phone barely lasts a day.
-Sound Quality. I have previously owned an i880 and i776 and they both had clearer and louder call quality. Speakerphone is not up to Nextel/Boost standards.
-Touch controls. It's a nice gimick but they are very sensitive no matter what setting they are on, so a couple of extra buttons on the sides of the phone may have been better.
-Price. Forget about the fact that this phone is 2 years overdue. It is waaaaay overpriced. Hopefully that will change over time.

The only reasons I can think of to spend the money on this phone are the larger screens, its looks and the touch controls if they are that important to you. I on the other hand am very happy to be going back to the i776.
