    I work for a Nextel authorized rep. and am getting an i870 soon, I was jsut wondering if anyone had one yet, and what they think of it? An unbiosed opinion...is it really worth the $400 non contract or $300 contract price?

    How is the reception with this phone. I have the i836 and there seems to be problems with the reception with my phone and with others who have had it and switched to other models.

    I think i am the only one to complain about this phone. I didnt like it. the color of the phone is too bland (personal opinion), the rubber parts of the phone (headset jack cover and memory card cover) gets really dirty and nasty looking after a while, viewing pictures you took on the phone look like CRAP (you can only tell its a megapixel camera if you develop a picture or view it from a computer), the original clip put chips on my phone, and last but not least EVERYONE has it. soooo i sold my i870 and got a 930 and I like the 930 alot better my only complaint about the 930 is the battery door is glossy black and you get swirl marks on it like a dark colored car

    ^^^ i actually like the color of the phone which nextel phones has colors that just pop out at u none to date maybe the i95 and the rubber parts are only gonna get dirty if u make them dirty and the i930 in my opinion is not better than the 870 its a big ass brick and has a slow menu... just my opinion

    ^^^ i respect your opinion but as for the rubber parts i treated that phone like it was my own child and the rubber got discolored for no reason and so did all my friends i870s

    ps i LOVE my brick phone
    pps another thing i do not like about the 870 is that the mp3 player is to picky and doesnt show some songs even though all followed all the phones "rules" thats not the case for my brick phone

    Just got my i875, I love everything about it except the stupid card reader. I've searched every forum possible and trie devery advice, solution, trick, etc....but it doesn't work for beans...anyway everything else speaker sound is decent, although you can't produce high quality ringtones, the camera, i guess is OK for a camera phone, the features in the Boost phone are awesome though

    anyway that was my rant

    i875 is the Boost version. My personal opinion is the i870 is one step ahead with the bluetooth. I feel the i930 is overpriced, the only reason to get it is if you want a windows os.

    These two are almost identical, of course Boost phones have a more stylish contour design on the keys, and usually are just cooler looking in general. I didn't realize the i875 was missing bluetooth, but aside from that I've read in other threads that the i875 is not upgradeable like the i870. Apparently none of the Boost phones are upgradeable, from what I've read elsewhere.

    I did see where one person bought an i875, took it apart, and put the faceplate from the boost phone onto his i870 and that apparently worked, if you want to spend $200+ on a phone you're going to destroy. If you really want to put your Nextel SIM in a Boost phone, an authorized Nextel dealer can unlock the i875 for you, as long as both the phone and the SIM are registered in your name. They will also charge you a fee to unlock the phone, but having them do it for you is the only legal way to unlock an iDEN phone.

    EDIT: After I posted this reply, I went to boostmobile.com and looked at the i875 features page. IT DOES HAVE BLUETOOTH just like the i870. Look HERE.

    I meant the i930 doesn't have bluetooth.
