My problems with nextel did not stop when I canceled my service. I will get to the problems with the service. When I went to get a new phone a day before my contract expired, I of course wanted to keep my number. So as I went to get my Cingular phone (highly recommended), I had the old number switched to my new number. Today, I get in the mail my nextel statement for the month with a $200 early termination even though I had not canceled my service, but had simply got a new phone and switched my number over. This was on icing on the cake after 2 years of absolutely amazingy bad service from nextel. In my town, not a small town by any means, there are very few places that have any service. In the largest subdivision, you cannot get service anywhere. I constantly get comments from people trying to reach me that get the classic nextel line...Please hold while the nextel subscriber you are trying to reach is located. Most of the time I would not even recieve incoming calls, calls would go straight to my voice mail. Not only would I not get the calls, but often I would not even get the voice mails until days or even weeks later. When I did actually take calls (and call out), I cannot count the number of times I've had my call dropped. I recieved so many different error messages sometimes I wonder if they just spend all their time at nextel thinking of different error messages to program into their phones. That brings me to the selling point of nextel, the famed and well-loved direct connect feature. This is an absolute joke. Direct connect only works MAYBE half the time I tried to use it. Even then, in the middle of the conversation I would be greeted by the loud beep of my phone telling me I wont be talking to that person anymore. Of course, I would expect nothing less from the nextel network. Text messaging with nextel is next to impossible. If it did not take hours to send or recieve a message, it took days, or maybe didn't even come at all. The internet access was fine, it the rare instance that it worked. Of course, when you don't have service, you don't get the internet access either. I was constantly getting the message "network not available". Calling and trying to complain to nextel is futile. Trying to get through to customer service takes forever and once you get through they do nothing. My experience with nextel has been nothing short of a disaster and I write this trying to warn anyone considering nextel. Stick with Verizon or Cingular and you will be much happier in the end. Don't make the same mistake I did. Less

Yin & Yang: Wake up Motorola!

The Good: Finally, somebody else realizes the benefit of a rubber coating and its durability. Panasonic's Duramax was my favorite, but it's discontinued.

The Good: Finally, somebody else realizes the benefit of a rubber coating and its durability. Panasonic's Duramax was my favorite, but it's discontinued. I'm surprised no one makes rubber snap on covers for all the phones. Drop the phone, chances are good it won't break. Moisture resistant (not clothes washer resistant, neither was my Duramax). Scratches nil. A good work phone for tough environments. The built in speaker phone is great. I especially like the adjustable font size, which sold me on this phone. Color is prettier, but what good is it if I can't see the text? The bland screen makes up for appearance with function...good contrast for seeing even in direct sunlight. The Not So Good: The speed dial numbers are set automatically and cannot be user defined without erasing the entire entry and info for the person/number auto-assigned to that specific speed dial number. You assign the speed dial number, and it erases whatever occupied it, completely. The logic of this completely evades me. All data for the deleted entry has to be re-entered. Also, every number gets assigned a speed dial number. No choice. The larger extended life battery was standard with my phone. The design doubles the thickness of the phone. Each battery size requires a different battery cover, most of which are not rubber coated, and sold separately from each battery. Drop the phone on the backside with these covers, it will break. If you have several batteries, plan on having to keep track of the appropriate cover that goes with it. More things to lose. So far I cannot get the long life battery to last 1 day, with minimal use. The advertised rated talk time is nowhere near reality. I've bought a smaller battery and smaller cover and testing the standby and talk times. May be the long life battery I received is almost DOA. The battery can be overcharged and damaged, and the charger provided does not detect this and shut off. Aftermarket chargers claim they protect the battery from this. Bottom Line: You want a very basic durable working person's phone, this is a good one. You want pretty and color and small with lots of ring tones and gizmos, this is not. Lots of decent accessories available. Car charger is a must. Wish Motorola would fix the speed dial software, such a basic thing on most all phones. The battery/cover designs are ridiculous. Should be one battery cover for all. Less

Works Well

from Amazon
I have had this phone for about a year now. My husband is very careless with his phones (always dropping them, leaving them in the wrong places) and so far, this phone has lasted with him. The only reason I gave it a 4 is the phone is bulky and not very attractive. Also it does not work in some basements and areas at my school.
