"My first Nextel and (faux) Android Phone."4.0 starson by cornerofthemoon
Pros: Built like a tank. Excellent reception.
Cons: The buttons for both the keypad and sliding keyboard are a little stiff and typing is a little more difficult than I would like.
Summary: I really do like this phone. This is my first experience with the iDen network and the reception at least in my town is phenomenal. Half of my life at both my job and my workshop at home is spent in a basement and this phone has no problems finding a clear signal. That was not the case with phones I had that ran on Sprint's CDMA network. Surprisingly, with the help of Opera Mini, the data speeds, though not blazing by any means were actually not too bad. It's a shame that the iDen network is probably going away with the Dodo bird. The music player is pretty good and very loud. I used DoubleTwist to sync iTunes content. I don't really miss not having the ability to access the Android Market as the i886 with Exchange support, music player, etc, has all of the Android features that I really need.
