In-depth review of the i870, Motorola's most feature-packed iDEN phone to date.

Many iDen handsets, because they are ruggedized and meant to be abused, are very large. However unlike other phones, the extra size usually does not pack in extra features. The i870 finally packs in many of the features of today's high end handsets in the typical iDen bulk. Nextel and Motorola would like to sell these to executives who have to carry iDen phones but will pay for high-end features. It's more likely that executives will stick to iDen's slim i83x series or the Blackberries. Instead, workers and supervisors who are tired of forgoing the show-off features their friends brag about will be the ones likely to purchase an i870.
Review: Apple iPhone 6s Plus
Apple's newest iPhones may look like last year's, but the company packed tons of appealing updates into the 6s Plus. New features such as 3D Touch and the improved cameras impress, while refinements to iOS 9 and how the 6s Plus interacts with the platform give the handset new-found power.

is (the rumored) 512mb the biggest card you can put on it?

bluetooth = terrible
ok so i work with almost every phone in the industry, and link them to a variety of vehicles on the market today. in my experience, and i dont know why, motorola makes some excellent phones as far as bluetooth connectivity is concerned...but they dropped the ball on the i870.
the phone drops the bluetooth connection, the sound quality is terrible over the lexus system anyway, and overall 100% of my clients have been disappointed with the bluetooth connectivity. to boot, when you make a call from the nav system, the phone takes atleast 10 seconds to actually connect 90% of the time.
that being said, i sincerely hope that motorola releases an update for all of this, or if any of you know any way to make it better, post it on here s...
