Review: Motorola i9 Stature

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

The i9 is the first phone I've encountered where pushing the green send key doesn't bring up a list of recent calls. Pressing the send key, in fact, does nothing unless you've already dialed a phone number. That's just weird. To actually get at your calls, you have to use the menu, which is flat-out annoying. I searched high and low in the menu system to see if this could be changed, and it can't.

When in a call, your options are extensive. The left and right soft keys will activate the mute and speakerphone. The main menu key on the phone will open the in-call menu, for doing things such as adding a line to the call, viewing your contacts, etc.

Pressing the PTT button will bring up the PTT menu for placing DirectConnect calls. The default action is for PTT to open your PTT contacts page. From here, you can tab sideways to see recent calls and DirectConnect memos.

Contacts can hold an extensive number of numbers, including home, mobile, DirectConnect and multiple work and fax numbers. You can also add in the requisite photo IDs, caller IDs and ringtones. You can search through your contacts by pressing the left soft key. The phone wont' search as you type. Rather, you have to enter what text you want and press the center of the D-pad to get it to sort through your contacts. It highlights the closest match in your contacts list.
