Total Crap, Glad Boost discontinued it

 

Aug 22, 2006 by Rolamoto

This phone is crap, I've had it for a little over a year and its falling apart, worse yet, I hardly use it!

Pros
it gets an ok signal
the wap browser is good enough
keypad

Cons
Shape
bulkiness
the mirror (a couple of days after getting the phone the mirror was so scratched that you cant see anything, so all it is doing is helping the phone to overheat)
the fact it is a boost phone
the "color" screen that has 4 colors outside of games
the included ring tones force you to buy some from boost

Good Overall Phone

 

Jan 31, 2006 by lilwheezy75

Considering the phones for a prepaid service you shouldnt expect something extraordinary. The phone is nice and compact, stylish, functional and has a nice color screen. it has a cool mirror inside the battery door and is nice and loud.

The only bad thing is the battery life. Dont buy this phone if you plan on talking alot.. it serves as a backup to my verizon 7000. And it lasts me just the day without ever using it. So plan on buying a backup battery.

WalkieTalkie on the Cheap!

 

Dec 3, 2005 by mGirl

CONS:
HORRIBLE battery life

PROS:
great size, fits perfectly in my hand
great voice quality
great reception (works great in my basement)
walkie talkie is really cool
fast wap
mirror under the battery door, cool!
voice tones

i got this phone because it was $39 at walmart and boost is now offering mobile to mobile with sprint and nights & weekends are only 10 cents! if you want a walkie talkie phone for a low price, get this phone! it works geat

but a word of warning, you'd better have a backup phone with you because the battery on this phone wont last but a day

Boost Mobile i285

 

May 10, 2005 by sigma2005

This is a cool little phone. It has fun stuff like voice recording and java apps. I don't like the battery life and the display is hard to see in bright daylight. Otherwise it's cool and I think anyone who doesn't want a flip phone should get it. -Matt-

not a bad walkie talkie phone

 

Jun 3, 2005 by VR6Yetta

i have this phone along side with my A630. i use my a630 for my main line. i use the i285 for the walkie talkie option. it is mainly to talk to my friends on the nextel network. it doesnt have many options with the phone but it does its purpose.
