If you're fed up with lousy Nextel coverage but can't quite let go of that walkie-talkie, then the new Sprint/Nextel ic502 might be for you. But it probably isn't for anyone else. The ic502 is the first Sprint/Nextel hybrid phone; it uses Sprint's CDMA...

First phone to combine Sprint and Nextel networks. Wide range of Java applications

Awful screen. Sharp learning curve for existing Nextel users

It's hard to get too excited about this first Sprint/Nextel combo phone, but it will help Nextel aficionados who are having trouble connecting calls.

Nextel's Direct Connect service works great on this phone! The speakers are nice and loud when you need them to be. The phone is really durable and can with stand a beating. The fact that it's a hybrid phone is a HUGE plus

The battery life is horrible, I found myself constantly recharging my phone. 2-3 dropped calls, but it depends on your location. No bluetooth, the buttons are almost to tactile (really loud when texting)

This phone is an overall good phone. It has the ruggedness of Nextel, with the preformance of sprint. The walkie-talkie feture is amazing! The phone is really durable, it has fallen off of my truck and even run over, and still works fine! The only 2...

good phone, it's held up better then most of the past iden phones I've used. Battery life is decent considering all the phone can do, Sprint coverage plus Nextel two way radio is awesome, so far loving the hybrid phones.

good signal, sturdy phone

The ic502 is almost the perfect phone for me. It provides the same level of durability I have come to know and trust with the Nextel 5xx line of handsets, while improving the call clarity tremendously. My only wish is that the handset had bluetooth...

Overall I really like this phone. I've had this phone for almost two months. I switched from a Samsung. I like how easy it is to navigate. The speaker phone is loud enough to really use as a speaker phone. Setting the alarm is so easy. Yes, it is a...

Solid. Loud rings. Easy to use. I have no problems trying to hear with this one. At times almost too loud

outside display is small

Motorola Buzz ic502 (Sprint)

 

Tough phone with a few nicer features, great if you like nextel but want more a more modern phone.

Durable, text messaging way nicer than on older nextel phones, easy to use

Kinda bulky and the screen isn't great

Consumer review by:

Motorola Buzz ic502 (Sprint)

 

This phone is not worth the money. I bought it when it first came out and sacrificed my i870. Losing bluetooth, camera, and the mp3 player for slightly improved cellular ability in my area was not worth it.

Slightly better cellular coverage than my old nextel phone

Terrible battery life, phone becomes sluggish if left on for over a day

I am totally disopointed with this phone. I am going back to my I95 phone.Stay away if you need relibility. I sure wish that I had declined the offer.

None

Must dial area code, frequently dropped calls, poor batrey life
