3rd one in 3 years

Posted on: May 20th, 2010 by Rick James

The good: T9 text messaging, can operate as a FRS radio (aka DirectTalk mode), stores contacts on SIM (makes migrating away easier!)The bad: iDEN, J2ME, locked to Nextel, small screen, doesn't use USB for data cable or charging, accessories are expensive, super-limited memory for SMS/text storage, no bluetooth option, GPS is spottySummary: My first i560 was fantastic. Bought it in 2005. It was solid and reliable and never gave me trouble.Then I lost it in 2007. Every replacement I've gotten has been progressively worse ever since. The cable in the flip has gone bad twice, the battery itself had such poor contact that my phone kept resetting. It will only store 100 text messages at any given time. The belt clip for it is great when it's new, but it breaks VERY easily, which was what lead me to lose my first (and best) incarnation of this phone in a mall parking lot.Basically, in today's market, this phone is remarkably basic, and it doesn't even do that as well as I'd like. (SexTel merger aside, the voice quality isn't great on this phone.)

Good, Tough Phone

Posted on: April 11th, 2007 by Wesley Musselman

The good: Color Screen, Very Tough, DirectTalk, Outside Screen, Good Quality SoundThe bad: No Camera, Battery Cover/Clip "Cheesy"Summary: Good Phone, reliable... forgiving to abuse, front screen comes in handy, MotoTalk is nice for very quick chats, Games ofcourse! and Datebook is a handy little feature... GPS is also an added bonus...

i560

The good: I have dropped mine several times and it still worksThe bad: The battery only lasts for about 2 hoursSummary: If you talk too much the battery dies out very quickly..exp: if you chat on it for like 30 minutes then make another call the battery is almost dead. I really wish they would replace the battery with a longer life one
