This cell phone sucks

from Amazon
This cell phone is not worth the money. Iy worked only for about a few months. Then I had to buy a new cell phone. So I wouldn't recommand this phone to my worst enemy...

This review is not intended to review the phone listed here specifically but is rather focusing on the service that accompanies this phone. Since the phone and service are both necessary to make this product functional I believe it is appropriate if I write a blanket review for every Nextel phone listed on Amazon. After all, these reviews are meant to help the consumer make an informed purchase and this review will serve in that role. I had problems with my Nextel service almost from the beginning of my 2 year contract. I would experience repeated dropped calls in my apartment. Since I had no landline the use of my cell in my apartment was very essential to me. Repeated calls to Sprint/Nextel failed to resolve the problem. They would either tell me they would look into the problem or that there was sufficient coverage in my area. I pointed out that if there was sufficient coverage for my area that I would not be experiencing dropped calls so frequently. Apparently my logic was lost on them. They then told me that concrete building would interfere in the signal. I informed them that my apartment was a wood structure and actually had quite good clearance from the sky. I also asked why the Sprint/Nextel signal was experiencing so much trouble but my work cell (Verizon) seemed to work fine. I have since switched carriers and as of yet have not experienced one dropped call. I eventually felt compelled to buy out my contract at $200 after one year. I sent complaints to my State Attorney General as well as the Better Business Bureau. Sprint/Nextel responded to both of these complaints with the standard line they had given me about adequate coverage for the area. My intent on filing these complaints was to compel Sprint/Nextel to make good on their failure to live up with their end of the agreement i.e. providing coverage to my cell. They have decided that $200 is worth more than a reputation of standing behind their service. It is my opinion that Sprint/Nextel is the worst company I have had the misfortune of doing business with in at least the past 5 years. In fact, never has a business in my experience done so little to try to make things right with a customer. I would encourage anyone considering doing business with Sprint/Nextel to talk with people they know in their area that has used the service. Had I done so when I was initially looking into cell phones I would have steered far away from Sprint/Nextel. Perhaps other people have had better experiences in other areas. Sprint/Nextel you had a chance to make right. I am guessing that if just one or two people are persuaded by my reviews then it will cost you well in excess of $200. Less

Very rugged, only minor complaints

I've had this phone for 11 months and I really haven't had any problems with it. I've dropped it countless times... once I even left it on the roof of my car, drove off and (luckily!) found it laying on the road... it's banged up but it still works just fine. The display is fairly large and has much better resolution than the i560. The blue lighted buttons are also nice. My only real complaints are that the charger cover does not stay closed anymore, and I find the menus difficult to use. Also, it has no calculator or alarm clock, which I miss. Overall, I would recommend this phone for people who care more about having a phone that is reliable and rugged than about having fancy features. Less

Junk

from Amazon
I've had this phone for about 14 months. It worked well for the first nine months or so, but then I started having problems getting a signal, and now it crashes on me all the time, in the middle of calls, and after I finish a call. I am a very light phone user, maybe 1 call every day or two. This phone is junk.

I thought my LG phone was bad

This is one of the worst and most confusing phones I have ever used. None of the settings can even be FOUND in the book that comes with it.

This is one of the worst and most confusing phones I have ever used. None of the settings can even be FOUND in the book that comes with it. The battery is horrible with charge, and the charger doesn't even stay connected in the bottom of the phone very well. Don't expect this phone to stay on, either. I'll get done typing a nice and long text when it suddenly decides to turn off. It turns back on by itself, but it only needs a slight bump to turn off. Also, no one gets my complete messages from this phone because it adds extra information and deletes part of the message. Extremely annoying. I would recommend this phone to NO ONE. Less

Worst cell phone I've ever had

I have had this phone for six months and I can charge it once completely and it will be good to go for an Con: The phonebook is a little bit confusing when you want to add additional numbers to an already existing contact. Using experience: 6 months Overall if you are looking for a phone and you don't need a camera but you still want more than just your average phone, this is the phone for you. I plan to keep this phone as long as I can. Less
