Motorola ic902 Deluxe
I've has this phone for about 2 weeks and so far it's ok, I love the sleek design, stereo speakers and mp3 player is nice, the camera on it is excellent and i love the extra features you have as an option with the phone. I've been having a few technical issues with the phone like when im listening to the music on the phone, and if my phone ring and I try to answer it, the screen will go blank and the phone will power off on it's own. When your on the internet, it sometimes take forever for the screen to load. I've had the nextel i870 and then i got the i880 but over all the ic902 is a better phone
Software Killed the ic902 star
i had the very reliable sanyo for about 4 - 5 years and switched to the ic902. it has a great design however the software kills the phone. it works very slow and i have had problem with freezing, powering off when the battery is full, and "not able to charge" errors. also the T9 text software is very very bad and you have to contact telanav in order to get GPS it cant be downloaded from the phone like it should. lastly there is a delay in the time display if you open the phone you will see the time displayed wrong then it will switch to the right time after a second. sometimes the LCD time is wrong as well and u have to open and close it to see the right time.
2.0 megapix camera/camcorder
good service for voice calls
GPS works great if you can download telanav
head phones sound great
speaker phone works well
external memory card
the 2.0 pic's look foggy after they are snapped
direct connect service is bad
software is slow
time display is slow
T9 text is very very bad
doesnt charge sometimes
this is an OKay =/ phone could be better. if Motorola would fix their software i would be in love with this phone

Some of these reviews just don't make any sense to me. The Motorola ic902 is a first class well built machine!
Call clarity is amazing
Old school pull up antenna that locks into place
Flips open like a switch blade, very cool!
Nice click when shutting the phone
Iden service works great!
Nice Motorola user interface
Big volume control button easy to use!
Sprint Power vision is fast and works great with useful content!
Nice screens inside and out
Beautiful key pad large and easy to use!
Speaker phone is just amazing, clear and loud!
Battery last two days with average use
MP3 play nice
Can't find any
Proof the merger is helping
I've heard people gripe back and forth about either Sprint hobbling Nextel, or vice versa. However seeing the ic902 has convinced me (at least) that the merger really was a good thing.
The ic902 is roughly the same size, shape, and weight as Sprint's Sanyo 7400/7500. Like almost all Nextel devices, it has an external antenna and spring-loaded flip. However, most Nextel devices (quite frankly) are ugly, heavy bricks that may be tough and reliable, but have a garbage UI and are slow. The ic902 actually isn't; in fact, under the hood it's essentially a V9m RAZR2. The whole package isn't as pretty as a V9m, but that still makes it the best looking Nextel devices on the market.
Pros: UI is fast and well designed with Sprint standard layout rather than Nextel/Motorola (this cannot help but be an improvement).
Compared to other Nextel devices, it's very light and compact.
Device isn't ugly.
Has most V9m features, save notably for the large external display (which isn't all that useful anyway).
Cons: Expensive; you can get a much cheaper device if you don't want the walkie-talkie.
Charging the Device
The biggest flaw with this phone is not being able to use a non Motorola charger. If I try and plug the phone into other USB type chargers it says "Unable to charge" I cant use a blackberry charger, or any OEM Car charger made for anything other then Motorola.
The Motorola razr charger is the only thing that worked with it that I've tried so far.
I am a Sales Rep. and I have sold 4 of these Phones
Here is the deal the phone has been out since last week, or as far as i could start ordering it. NEVER BUY A PHONE WHEN IT JUST COMES OUT!!! complain ALL you want but i had people rushing in to get a phone that we aren't even sure if the worked everything out yet. so far i have 1 customer who is having troubles. his battery dies within the day, he also uses it as a business line! and he was having problems with the million things you can do with this phone you can even make your own ringers by doing a voice recording and setting it as a ringer! its a cool phone much like the i880. but the did screw up by putting the same battery in both the i880 and the ic902 because the ic902 works off two networks!!
the pros that i liked about the phone is its beautiful screen!! and big displays. i love how they gave it the push to flip button and i just think all around if i were to buy it id wait 3 months. buy that time they will have fixed EVERYTHING
the pros of this phone are good loaded with features mp3 player all that good stuff
the cons are it randomly cuts off and the screen will just go blank it also has problems gettin good signal i went threw 3 of these in 4 months
nice phone but to many defects
best thing to do when a phone comes out is to wait a while and let them figure out all the defects first
SO FAR SO GOOD
Just Got my phone in spite of the negative reviews. Over the 1 week I owned it,
Dropped Calls Ceased
Camera Takes Good Pictures,
Can't Change Font Size
Can't Download my own Ring Tones
