"Rugged... Phffft!!! Shiny Junk!"1.0 starson by GarthKlaus
Pros: Looks good, Easy to use.
Cons: Limited lifespan <90 days. No support from Nextel or Motorola. NO WARRANTY!!!
Summary: I bought this phone to replace my beloved i305 that has been through 5 hurricanes, 3 tropical storms, countless drops and even my kitchen wall.
The i335 looks good and worked pretty well, for a few months. I received in in March 08 and by July... it was done. I took it to a Nextel store and was told it was 'water damaged' and would need to go through Motorola. I called Motorola who asked me to send it to them. They returned it unrepaired and referred me to Nextel. No one will take responsibility for the warranty and each tries to send me to the other.
As for the 'water damage'. This phone lead a sheltered life when compared to the Hell I put my i305 through. It was never dropped, used in the rain, or tossed through a wall.
Bottom Line: It does not live up to it's 'Rugged' tag and no one will stand behind it.
