Motorola i365 (black, Nextel)

 

If there ever was a Nextel phone, the Motorola i365 would be it. Big, burly, and bulky, the i365 looks as if it could withstand just about anything. Make no mistake: this is a serious phone for making voice and push-to-talk (PTT) calls. There's no...

The Motorola i365 has a rock-solid design and easy-to-use controls. It also offers Bluetooth, voice dialing, and plenty of push-to-talk options.

The Motorola i365 may be too big for some people. Also, its display is rather small.

If you're looking for a reliable, easy-to-use handset that's built like a tank, the Motorola i365 fits the bill.

Rugged, military-certified design, easy-to-use keypad and navigation controls, clear, crisp voice quality, plenty of push-to-talk features, bluetooth, GPS

Hefty size, small, low-resolution display, no camera or music player, slow push-to-talk network

"Very rugged, down-to-earth no-frills cell phone."

 

If you need a tough phone that is capable of being used in a rough, loud environment with gloved hands and a weak signal and one that focuses on voice communications and not web surfing, picture taking and game playing, then this phone is the one to get.

Rugged, large buttons (as large as many cordless phones), loud and clear audio. Excellent signal in fringe area especially when equipped with the optional 6" antenna (i365IS antenna). This is the phone to get when you would rather use a phone to actually

Multi-pin charger connection, no desk-top drop-in charger option even though phone has contacts for drop-in charger. Menu isn't the easiest to figure out although it's definitely not the worst I've seen.
