    It's great for Nextel


    But it's sub-par compared to phones from other carriers with the same features.

    The mp3 player is good, but the most it can play is 128k - CD quality. If you're serious about your music, buy a real mp3 player.

    anyone have the i930? It looks like a sick phone. I went to cingular, but I'm really thinking about going back to Nextel. I never dropped my account with them.

    I got it, Love it, two things though, when you get it update the firmware because bluetooth sounds much better afterwards, and pass on the moto headset and get the cardo scala 500.

    The camera feature on the i870 can take 1024xsomething-sized pictures.
