    I don't understand why Motorola would put a speaker on the back of a =
    phone. Why would you want everyone to hear your conversation better than =
    you?

    I have a i85s and the speaker is on the front of the phone, where it =
    should be. The audio quality is great, and in public environments I turn =
    the volume down and I hold the phone close to my ear so other people =
    can't hear as well.=20

    My friend is a new Nextel subscriber and got a couple i205 phones. I =
    have tried them out and I really dislike them. The speaker is on the =
    BACK of the phone for some reason, and if I use his phone and try to =
    turn it down and listen, it doesn't work well unless I hold the phone =
    backwards. Who's the Einstein that thought that one up? When I use his =
    phone, I feel like I'm broadcasting my conversation to everyone.

    I've always loved Motorola products, but lately they've been doing some =
    pretty wacky stuff, like putting the PTT button on the front of =
    talkie-talkies instead of on the side, and putting speakers on the back =
    of phones instead of on the front. I can only wonder what they may do =
    next...

    Try turning the phone so the back faces you.

    I agree. I have the i530 flip phone w/ speaker in back. I prefer to use the
    phone closed with DC and after dialing cell number, closed also....unless of
    course I'm in a public setting that requires common sense in which case I go
    "earpiece". I'm not sure exactly of the internal configuration of the
    microphone.....but it seems to work real well for me by just speaking into
    the external "speaker". For my use and the configuration of the i530 it
    works great.
