Review: Motorola ic402

Is It Your Type Body The Three S's

Our in-depth review of Sprint's first CDMA / iDEN hybrid phone, the ic402 Blend, along with its brother Buzz. NEW: Video Tour added

iDEN handsets are not known in the cell phone industry for their sense of style. Rather, they forgo the slick designs of other phones for a more practical, down-to-earth approach. With their walkie-talkies, iDEN phones are often the handset of choice for blue or gray-collar workers who need an able workhorse of a phone that can withstand the daily rigors of the hard-knock life. But sometimes the hard-hat set needs something more. By combining key features of both iDEN and CDMA technologies, the Motorola ic402 Blend offers a taste of both worlds in a re-packaged and somewhat more hip design.

For Eric/Rich

What kind of camera do you use to take the photos of the phones?
For the reviews that I do, I am using a Sony 7.2MP Cyber-Shot DCS-V3.

Rich and Eric L both use different cameras.

ic402 rvw also forgot Direct Send

In the otherwise good review article, besides forgetting to mention the extremely handy Direct Talk capability (which no other phones offer) as "bigdaddycrawfish" pointed out, the article also failed to mention Direct Send. Direct Send allows one person to send contact info from one Nextel phone directly to another Nextel phone with one push of the PTT button. Another Nextel exclusive that comes in very handy all the time.

As pertains to the "3 S's"

"Please wait while the Nextel subscriber is located."
