Motorola Clutch i465 (black, Nextel)

 

Editors' note: Nextel now offers the Clutch for $39.99 with service. It is similar to the Boost Mobile model, except that it offers a few unique Nextel features.

The Motorola Clutch has a compact design with a comfortable keyboard. Call quality is excellent.

The Motorola Clutch has a low-resolution display and a clunky interface. It does not support instant messaging.

Boost Mobile scores with its first messaging phone. The Motorola Clutch offers good performance and an easy-to-use design.

Motorola Clutch i465 Review

 

Just a few years ago we had left Sprint's iDEN service for dead, but under newish CEO Dan Hesse the maligned service has had a revitalization of sorts. It started slow, with the basic but functional i576 and i776. These new devices were smaller than...

Video Tour: Motorola i465 Clutch

 

Motorola kicks out a low-cost texter for Boost Mobile. The i465 Clutch has a QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, a camera and decent looks to boot. It is hampered only by flimsy software.

Dying to change my phone

 

Out of the kindness of my heart I ask you, please please do not buy this phone. You would be better off with an ugly junky phone, at least it does what is expected to do and is cheaper.

Unlimited calling, texting, "web browser ; simple to use

terrible texting, DO NOT USE THIS PHONE IF YOU ARE A TEXTER ; You have to "download" texts (There are phones from 2000 that receives and sends texts faster) ; Downloading" can take from anywhere up to 10 secs to a day. Sometimes people may not even text y

Bad phone. Good unlimited everything.

 

At first, I really liked this phone. It has a QWERTY keyboard and unlimited everything for $50 a month. But the more I use this phone, the less I like it. The problems become more obvious every day. Now after using this phone for 3 months, I wouldn't...

Unlimited everything with Boost Mobile

Internet really sucks. No service after 5 mins of sitting in the same spot. Dropped calls. Hard to text on

Warning to all Clutch users: Buy a back-up SIM

 

Don't know if it's the phone or the card, but we lost ALL of our contact info and other stuff. Also, Sprint/ Nextel was not very helpful either.......just waiting for my contract to expire! Text messages will sometimes appear immediately or never; when...

Guess the phone itself is alright; I don't do much as far as web functions

Had two: both phones had the SIM cards go bad so, all info is lost and cannot be recovered. I have had people call and the phone doesn't ring. Voicemail and text may alert me right away or a day later
