"Decent Cheap Basic Nextel Phone"3.5 starson by noahthefrog
Pros: Great for using as just a phone and walkie-talkie. The walkie talkie, if you and your coworkers/friends actually use it, is the most awesome feature for a cellphone to have. Sound quality is excellent. Bluetooth support. GPS capability
Cons: Phone software is slow and simple. Data speed is slow. Uses the old Nextel iDEN network, so there's no real roaming possible. No CDMA or GSM cross-compatibility. Default text entry setup is terrible, but can be adjusted. Default theme is awful.
Summary: I like this product for what it is - A simple cellphone with good sound quality. Combine this with Boost Wireless's $50 unlimited plan and you got a cheap working phone & walkie talkie. The boost mobile theme is a lot more tolerable than the default blue-grey theme, which is almost impossible to use. Overall a good value, but not hi-end at all.
