    I was wondering the same thing, basically since my contracts up I've been
    wondering if I should get a new Nextel phone (i90 or i95cl don't really see
    the point of a color display though) or wait until another provider comes out
    with something that appeals to me. Anyone have any suggestions for me? I'm in
    the Chicago area so opinions in or around that area would be appreciated.

    For those of you with the i95cl's, what do you use them for? Can they be used
    like little mini PDA's or something, or is the color screen just because?

    TIA

    I sure hope Nextel and Motorola came create a phone with bluetooth. One of
    the down falls of Nextel is the limit choice of handsets. Motorola iden
    handsets seem to be a little behind in technology, features, and sizes.

    Agreed. When all other cell companies are offereing phones with camera's,
    .... for about half the price of a i95c. I dig nextel, just don't dig the
    phones or the $400 price tags.

    The Falcon series is supposed to make a showing in the later part of the
    third quarter. You will probably see the I730 Falcon after September. It is
    smaller than the I90. As for the cameras. You can get the camera for the I95
    for around $30. Not bad pricing considering.

    The one thing I don't like about the i95 or i90 is the size. Yes they are
    the smallest that Nextel provides, but all other service providers offer a
    much, much smaller and more compact flip phone.

    I love the size of the i90c. If a try to use a phone that's smaller than
    the i90c I find it troublesome. Perhaps it's just cause I have biggish
    hands, but I'd hate to have something smaller.

    I'm just curious as to why people like these phones that look and feel like
    tiny children's toys? I mean yeah they're nice, but isn't it kind of awkward
    being a grown man with a phone the size of a dog's chew toy in your hand
    casually walking down the street?

    I like small phones that fit comfortably into paints or shirt pocket. Nokia
    phones are just as well built as any Motorola.

    The Motorola v60 series, offered by all other mobile providers execpt
    Nextel, is a nice size phone.

    I'm witchou man! I was looking at a tiny flip phone at a store yesterday
    and instantly came to the conclusion that it'd be almost instantaneously
    lost after purchase.

    I can picture myself walking around the house looking for my phone while the
    whole time it's lodged in my butt crack.

    They are? Can you casually walk out the back door, drop your Nokia and have
    it bounce down 7 steps and land on asphalt, then pick it up and carry on
    like nothing happened? (happened to me this morning)
