Best Nextel Yet
I recieved this phone today and it is definately the best phone that Nextel offers. I switched from the i930 to this one and I am very happy with my decision. First of all it is about half the size of the 930. It is a little bit thicker than the RAZR. I have heard a lot of people asking about a status light on the auto open button and no it doesnt have one. But it does have a blue light that flashes on the direct connect button that lets you know that someone is calling you. The phones color is better than I expected. It is more like a metallic burgandy, sort of. It doesnt have the gay looking purple color that is shown in most of the pictures. Overall this phone has exceeded my expectations in every way.

Best phone yet
Everything is perfect about this phone. All the features that come with the phone work extreamly well. There are no real con's to be concerned about. The only issue I have occurs when I travel to Buffalo, especially in Tonawanda. The signal drops quickly then comes back again. This happens very frequently. I would like to ask anyone if there is a solution to this problem. This happens on all the models on the Mike network. Other then this small issue, I am very happy. If anyone ccan help me with this please contact me!!!
All in all its an awesome phone!!!
i880 ... truly amazing!
Well after having the i580 and before that the i605 and i325IS, which I felt were fantastic phones, I have to say I like the i880 most of all.
Just when I thought the i580 wasn't going to be out done, along came the i880.
Basically to sum it up in a nut shell, this phone not only has it all as mentioned in previous reviews, but being able to Bluetooth ringtones (mp3 and wav), wallpapers (.jpg, .gif, & .png), caller I.D.'s, along with .3gp videos, I don't see any need to have an Loader Program on your pc via using a data cable to download these files into the i880.
The sound quality and ringer volumes are best to date.
Gotta Luv the i880!
5 Stars Easily!!!
Great Phone/Horrible Customer Service
I really like this phone. I really dislike the tech support, customer service.
The GPS was not working on my phone when I got it. I spoke with four customer service (tech support) reps today as they kept escalating my problem with the phone, and not one of them could help. They then sent me to an "authorized repair center". The gum-chewing kid behind the counter said, "hmmm, I really don't even know what GPS is." I said, "I'm sorry, I thought this was an 'authorized repair center.'" He said, "yeah, it is, I just don't know anything about GPS."
So, he sent me to a "corporate office". The tech there said, "I'm sorry I can't help you, just push *4 on your phone to talk with tech support." I told him I had been on the phone with tech support for over 4 hours already today. He said, "Oh, then why don't you try the 'authorized repair center.' I said that I had already been there and the adolescent behind the counter had not heard of GPS.
So he sent me to a third "retail outlet" who told me that they couldn't help me as they were not "an authorized repair center." While I was at this third outlet the gentleman being waited on before me was screaming mad because he had been sent to "literally 3 different places trying to get his phone fixed."
I decided just to go home and return the new phone. On the drive home, the GPS started working. Go figure.
Sooooo, to make a long story short, I gave the phone a 2.0. It would be a 5.0 if you could get the phone at Verizon instead of Sprint/Nextel.
P.S. I talked to a friend about the experience and he said, "you mean you haven't HEARD about the customer service at Sprint/Nextel?" I felt like a neanderthal that had just crawled out of a cave as he explained to me that everyone in the mobile phone industry knows about Nextel/Sprint and their horrible customer service.
Boost mobile i885
This is a great phone. It has a unique design to it. With it's 2.0 megapixel camera, it has good picture quality. It also has a video recorder and audio recorder as well. It has a voice-recognition feature that allows you to select a male/female voice to say the name of your contacts. It is bluetooth enabled (the motorola h700 headset is a great counter part) It can store up to 600 contacts on the phone. Great phone, great buy.

i880 is a great phone!!
I just upgraded to the i880 after using a i870 for 2 1/2 years. I couldn't be more happy with my new i880.
Great 2 mega pixel camera and flash.
Speaker is back up front like my i95.
direct connect- still great and a must have
music player works well.
Cons: battery life could be better.
Overall I am very happy I got this phone. For $99 it packs a punch. You won't be disappointed.
Best Phone I've ever had
I got my i880 a few days ago. I had my i860 for 2 years and it was a great so it was going to be hard to top in my opinion. Here are my pros and cons.
Auto open hinge
Bluetooth is great and easy to use
Finally available in silver.
no voice dialing
no resend option on sent text messages
Overall the best phone I've had. I rate it a 4.5 because no phone is perfect.
i love this phone
ok so i go this phone about two days ago ...and i got a upgrade from the 1930 i didn't really like that one as much and it only cost $400 to do so ... my friends have never had a phone like this and they all love it I'm one the more upper class of my group so i no none of them will ever get it....
