Big Brick but does the job.
I really like Nextel. Especially, the direct connect is the cats meow! I like the idea of a combination GSM / IDEN technology in a phone. This phone gives you these options. However, the phone is very big, the phone is very heavy, the audio quality is so,so, and accessories are very hard to find. This phone is good for three years ago. I hope Motorola / Nextel will release a more compact version of this phone. For right now, if you need these features, this is you only option.
I Recently replaced an AudioVox 4500 with the 9155-GPX and I am well pleased with it.
Some of the previous reviews criticize this phone for not having games. As far as I am concerned, that is a PLUS! If you want games, buy another phone or get a "GameBoy". This telephone is an excellent communication instrument....not at toy.
This is a full featured phone with Tri-mode capability, built-in full-duplex speakerphone, voice activated dialing, data capable up to 144 kbps, 7 line display with adjustable text size, and, importantly, E911 call capable. There are many other features that are user friendly.
