Can not complain

I am not sure what happened with other customers, but I have had my i885 for 2yrs, and love it!!! I use it every day, all the time. There are features I love and will hate having to give it up, when it is time to update my phone. I use it for personal and work related. And I personally love telus!! Never have had any issues...

My first i885 lasted 8 months then the display went upside down. I sent it in for service and they (telus) replaced the phone. Now my second i885, only 5 months later has done the same thing. I'm now out of warranty as the because the 1 year warranty starts from the original date of purchase. No one can help me. The phone is $199 on a 3 year contract. I still have 18 months on this contract...to buy a new phone (not an i885 - 2 bad ones is enough) while on contract will cost at least another $200-$300 minimum. What a lousy phone!!!! Less

I have had this phone for 14 months and all of a sudden the display goes upside down. I go to the store where I bought it and am told by the sales girl that this is a known problem with this phone. I call the service provider and they say yes it is a software problem that motorola is aware of and then it needs a software update but oh no my phone is 14 months and the warrenty is only a year. I ask why would they sell these if they are aware that many of them have this problem? Not great customer service and totally unfair. Less
Sorry. We didn't find any good Motorola i885 videos yet. Please check back soon or contact us to suggest one.
