Motorola i576 (black, Sprint)

 

It's rare that you'd confuse a Nextel phone for another carrier's handset. Indeed, Nextel models such as the Motorola i576 tend to have a functional, industrial design that's built for usability and durability rather than sex appeal. Granted, there has...

The Motorola i576 has a durable, easy-to-use design. It offers great audio quality and a range of calling features.

The Motorola i576 has low-resolution displays.

The Motorola i576 is a sturdy and functional Nextel phone. It's not glamorous, but it works.

"Sturdy phone but stops working after 1 year."

 

Overall good design but made not to last and unfortunately what gives US manufacturing a bad name.

Sturdy and dependable

Evidently designed to break. Run account with over 100 phones and about 25 of these in use. As soon as 1 year warranty expired, most phones stopped working within a month, displays inverted or disappeared.

"Great PHONE, rugged, dependable, intuitive, no BS!"

 

If you're looking for bling or to make some kind of style (or ego) statement, this is not your phone. BUT if you are looking for a functional tool to make and receive phone calls (sort of a novel idea these days!) with BIG BUTTONS a great choice. Works...

I appreciate the talk clarity and volume; the design is easy to use; rugged with BIG BUTTONS well illuminated. Masculine without being glitzy. Great battery life, speaker phone performance, fast to charge, easy applications like Telenav.

For data use or Telenav, it would be nice to have a larger screen.

"What cell phones use to be."

 

My first cellphone ever was a Nokia 232... that was back in 1994 (God I am old) and that thing was immortal. One time I had a fight with a girlfriend which ended with the phone being slammed against a solid rock wall... and the screen cracked but the...

Rugged, reliable, excellent reception and clarity in both Nextel and phone modes. Easy to use, no useless features. Can be used as a walkie talkie even outside the Nextel coverage with another compatible phone.

Screen could be a little tougher and larger and with better resolution. No data integration with a desktop.
