    My i90's backlight works perfectly fine. Not dull at all, can even use it to
    light my way in dark area's heh.

    Maybe you should either take yours back and ask your dealer to give you a new
    one, or send it to Motorola and see if they can fix it.

    Re: i90 easy to read at night?

    Since posting this, I've actually gotten to look at a couple of i90's, the
    keys are well-lit, but the blue-green display screen is not particularly
    visible at night, IMO. With voice activated dialing, the lack of being able
    to easily read your phone directory (e.g. while driving at night) doesn't
    matter much if you're calling someone you know and (hopefully) remember what
    their voice prompt is. Hoping this will be better with the i95 or i730 color
    screens.

    It would be nice on future models if voice activation were extended to cover
    dialing, so you just speak the phone number, phone repeats it back and dials
    it for you.

    Followup: last night I rode in a car with OnStar--driver was able to
    voice-dial a number by just saying the phone #, 1 digit at a time--why can't
    these Nextel phones do that?

    Have you actually seen any other carriers phone who can do that? OnStar is a
    whole different beast then a cell phone.

    Re: i90 easy to read at night?

    Hey, I don't know whether or not any other wireless phone carrier's cell
    phones allow me to voice-dial a number as described. If not, then why not?
    I've been able to check United Parcel Service tracking numbers on the phone
    using voice, not keys, for years. Long number, combination of numbers and
    letters, no voice training of software, gets it right every time. Let me
    re-state what I said: I want this technology for my cell phone now. It would
    make using my cell phone in the car easier and safer. If another carrier has
    this technology in place now, at a reasonable price, and all other things
    (like coverage) being equal, I would leave Nextel to go to that carrier.

    I gathered that from your OP...

    > It would make using my cell phone in the car easier and safer.


    Most phones that I've seen and used have voice activated dialing, other then
    that I haven't seen what you describe.

    Well do some research then and find the phone that you're looking for. The i90
    and up has voice activated dialing (don't know about i60 etc.), so if that
    doesn't suffice, find something that you'll be happy with.

    Re: i90 easy to read at night?

    Follow-up:

    Just bought an i95, and, unlike my i90 (and other i90's I've looked at since
    I originally posted the question), you CAN read it at night in a dark place.
    No comparison. Will sell my i90 and replace it with another i95.
