Motorola i425 :(
There is an issue w/the phone's audibility. The person on the other end, sounds inebriated. It took me a new phone of the same model, to realize, the person of whom I was speaking to, wasn't drunk. The other issue is the memory, or the lack thereof. Not enough for Twitter. That aside...You get what you pay for. I didn't buy the phone for it's aesthetics... I bought it, because it was cheap. It's probably ideal, for someone that looses their phone, or an employee.
Volume is loud at its higher settings and clear without speakerphone engaged.
Poor battery life even on standby
Keypad is too dimly lit
Too long in its height but its thinness makes up for it
Back cover is difficult to remove
Rated a 4 due to its great call quality

What a piece of shi*t this phone is! I can't hear anyone and they can't hear me. I am constantly apologizing to whomever I am TRYING to speak with. Makes me wonder if all Motorola phones are like this, or if it is boost mobile's network that sucks?? Does anyone know what kind of unlocked phone I can get to switch the Sim from my POS phone to a better quality phone? I read that boost phones are incompatible for switching Sim cards. HELP!!!
I dont recommend it.
I've been a loyal Boost Mobile customer for over three years. All Boost Mobile phones have dissapointed me, every! When I first saw this phone I just saw a unique phone, I bought it two days after I first layed my eyes on it. When I first turned it on, I saw the same display screen, dim, bad colors, poor backlight. The keypad even had a dark blue light, you could barely see the numbers! Also, little by little this phone starts to BREAK. Out of nowhere, a big black stain appeared on the phone, made the screen darker than it is! also, the high gloss on this phone makes all the scratches more visible. To be honest. This phone is just like every Motorola iDen phone. Don't expect new things. Poor design, poor everything. There is no efford in this phone. It's like if they just thought of it and created it under pressure or in a couple of days.
What you get for the Money
I gave this phone a 4.0 because it is pretty good for what it is.
Sound quality is clear and loud
Battery is much better over other iDEN models
Look and feel is not cheap in my opinion
The Screen. It could be bigger, It could be brighter and higher resolution. If I had to pick one over the other, I would go with quality over size
Overall for the money it is great for a basic phone. Don't mistake it for something more than it is....
the phone has alright speed especially for a $40 phone, but when you go to send a message it sends an MMS which if you know what that means its a Multi-Media Message. so most of my friends can't get these messages because most carriers have unlimited SMS not MMS so your not able to txt message anyone!!! they can't SMS you though which is stupid that you can only recieve it. and then to make things worse. Wal-mart wont take it back i brought it back the next day but they wont take it unless something is wrong with it.STUPID
pros:fast internet, fast processor, loud speakerphone, cheap plans
cons: no SMS, nextel has BAD coverage, expensive internet
Where is the freaking keylock.
Can't tpuch it without presing a key.
This fone sucks....
I absolutely hate this phone. I say this because you can never ever hear on it. I mean, it's a compact phone but, the reception is bad...
Just what it is.
OK Pros pros pros....
This phone is great. It was cheep and has 2 way and is a pay as you go. I was able to get it for the price i did because it is Not an mp3 player or cam or mini computer. I have those things too. Just a great phone and rings and walls can be added at no cost if you do it yourself. I love it!!!
They reuse the phone numbers so you get calls and other things from another owner of that number. So... it stinks that i must shut it off when i don't want to spend the dollar for an unknown person keying me up on a day that i would not have used that dollar.
But i can use it for 89 days and just have $20 on it i love that.
Can't beat the value
This is a great phone for the price. I paid $17.99 for it at Best Buy on 12/15/07 and it came with a free $5.00 pre-paid "minutes" card. So, my purchase was the equivalent of paying only $12.99 for the phone. All of its features work great.
Sound quality is clear
GPS and Java enabled
Keys are easy to use
Battery life is good
Slim & light enough to slip into any pocket
Integrated (invisible) antenna & speakerphone
Small screen (but this does extend battery life)
Glossy finish scratches easily
I don't care that it lacks camera and Bluetooth - these are features I never need or use any way.
