A Worker's Phone

Posted on: December 10th, 2008 by Matthew Gendusa

The good: Extrmley durable, able to withstand many different elements. Easy interface to use. The bad: Poor texting ability. Bad camera. Lack of features. Outdated.Summary: While this phone has done its job well for me over the years, it cannot compete in today's market. With phones like the iPhone and Storm, the qualities of the i580 are dwarfed. And when other phones can withstand being dropped multiple times without being rugged, it gets cast under the wind.Obviously, the phone still has its good parts. It is extremelly durabel. Over two years, I have smashed my phone under bricks, dropped it, ran it under water, sent it through the wash, and had a "football" catch on concrete. None of these slowed this phone down. Recently, the front screen died, but that was most likely due to a battery issue or something along those lines. The phone also has an easy interface. The menu is clear and easy to use, and overall there is not much wrong with that. Also, this thing is like a flashlight, and I have used it to illuminate some of the darkest spaces aroundBut texting and other things show this phone its flaws. It can be near impossible to text when the phone starts to decide what you are going to say next. The camera is garbage, and I have never gotten a clear shot in my life. Standard feautres on many phones today are almost not usable on this phone.I highly recomend it for existing Nextel users who are on a job site. It is durable and can withstand hits and falls. The push to talk, or "bleep" as I call it works fine, and one of the best ways to get a hold of someone quicly. But to switch to this phone for its pizazz is stupid. Its a tough phone thats pretty easy to use.

i580 - A Not-So-Rugged Phone

Posted on: April 9th, 2007 by Bill Wilson

The good: good features, nice display, good soundThe bad: not durableSummary: This phone is billed as a rugged phone but is not truly a rugged phone. I have owned this phone for about nine months and have already sent it back to Motorola two times because of the external display not functioning properly (not displaying at all). I do not treat this phone ruggedly although it is billed as a rugged phone. I carry this phone in a leather holster attached to my belt and in no way bang, drop, step on, or abuse this phone in any way at all. Overall, I have had phones not billed as rugged phones be more durable than this phone.

Glad I waited for the i580!

Posted on: July 19th, 2006 by Tony Roylaski

The good: What I like about the i580 is the rugged feel and sturdiness. (Not everyone sits in an office all day and can carry a little skinny phone.) When I am not at work I really enjoy the camera and video capture features, as well as being able to view them on a nice clear screen. The bad: I miss not having the calculator. It was time consuming transferring my contacts.Summary: Overall I really enjoy the i580. New bluetooth devices with Nextel are not as common as they are with other providers, so I was glad to finally get a nice flip with Bluetooth.
