The Motorola i1 is a great smart phone for the Nextel user that can't sacrifice the Direct Connect button for better/faster service and better phones on Sprint. The i1 is the BEST Nextel phone there is and the idea of having one with DC and running the android OS is great, BUT android 2.2 is out now (or better) and this only comes with android 1.5 :( and it was just released in the last couple months. if they really wanted to compete here they should have given it a better version of android! That aside it does work pretty well... the only issue that I had with it wasn't the phones fault, it was the Nextel network... The sprint network is just faster and more reliable (meaning bigger). Don't get me wrong I LOVE Nextel DC but when it comes to there Data service they are seriously lacking!
