"great phone"on by jophnanzalone6
Pros Excellent sound on receive, sturdy reliable and hard to drop out(cell tower signal)
Cons the browser is worthless you have ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY no web access so be warned
Pros I had the 580 for a year it got run over by a truck, I had to go with a less exp. 570 I bought used from a local market. This phone has been a good phone, it also got runover by a 40000 lb. fire truck and still works.
Cons small screen, no camera, can use owb pics from text message to use as wallpapers.
Summary good phone for the buck.
Pros High quality materials and very simple to handle and dial
Cons no camera - LOW DEF SCREEN
Pros Rugged design, Ease of use
Cons My main gripe is about the display. Too small. However, it's nice and clear and easy to get around the interface. A camera would be nice!
Summary Add a camera to a little phone like this, and you would have an all around winner. I like a durable phone like this that will take a lick and keep on going, and I have to say that the Motorolas made for Nextel excel in that capacity. If you are into gadgets, you won't care for this phone. It's a basic hardworking phone and that is what it is built for...plain and simple. Griping about that is like griping about why a Komatsu dump truck doesn't have a power sunroof, cruise control and power windows like the Cadillac does. It's comparing apples to oranges. Take the iPhone to the construction site and see how it survives the challenge.
Pros UM wow...it was free, um the Nextel guy managed to keep from laughing as we issued these to our field officers.
Cons The buttons are difficult to hit, you cannot access the "last number called" with the cover closed. The radio is passable at best. The ring set (with allows you to scroll through last called) can also go off in your pocket...IT SUCKS
Summary Apparently Motorola (excellent company) designed this abortion to be dropped behind enemy lines. It was their intention the enemy would find it, try to use it and become so disgusted they would surrender.
Sadly SPRINT found it and decided this crappy piece of electronic bloviate would perfectly fit their customer no-service pledge. Most of us let ours run out of battery power and use our personal cell phones. Oh yeah it does run out of power quickly so that is a good thing too.
