My Nextel i870 phone died recently and through my insurance I was able to get a new Motorola i880 cell phone. I received it on Friday and so far so good. I really dislike the color of the entire phone though. I have no idea what they were thinking. It’s an ugly maroon/purple. It is really hideous IMHO.
As far as functionality goes, it’s about the same as the i870. It has the same functions except that it has a 2.0 megapixel camera. To me the different between the i870 and the i880 camera is negligible.
I still plan on changing carriers as soon as my contract with Nextel is up. I have about one more year so it’s quite a long time from now but as soon as I am free, I’m gone with the wind.
I just dislike the selection of Nextel phones; the selection is very limited. Also they’re so bulky since they have all the PTT technology embedded in them.
I’m going to T-Mobile. I can’t wait.
