"3rd one in 3 years"

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 spotty

Summary: 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.)
