While Nextel phones aren't known for being sleek, the Motorola Stature i9 is both compact in size and robust in content. The Internet browser is surprisingly weak, but otherwise the i9 is one of the better phones for Nextel connections, camera...

Motorola i9 (black, Boost Mobile)

 

In the back of our minds we knew that the Motorola Razr, at least in some form, would make it to Sprint Nextel. Though the original Razr V3 is more than five years old, and Motorola has pumped out dozens of revamps, it has made it to every other...

The Motorola i9 Stature offers a sleek design, brilliant displays, useful features, and good call quality

The Motorola i9's controls and keypad are flat and stiff. The camera is rather slow and photo quality is just average

The Motorola i9 Stature is the sexiest Nextel phone we've seen. Apart from the disappointing camera, it offers decent features and admirable call quality.

Motorola Stature i9 (Boost Mobile)

 

The Motorola Stature i9 (for Boost Mobile, $299.99 direct) is the nation's fanciest prepaid phone, looking like neither your typical Nextel handset nor the sort of low-end model most people associate with prepaid accounts. It brings high-end features...

Boost Mobile's best music phone. 3.1-megapixel camera. Good-looking. Solid call quality

Expensive. Huge. Poor Internet features. Lacks a standard headphone jack ; Watch the Motorola Stature i9

It's certainly not perfect, but Motorola's pricey Stature i9 is the classiest, most feature-packed phone you can buy on Boost Mobile's $50 per month unlimited calling plan.

Boost Mobile i9 is thin, solid and dependable

Nextel phones are notoriously ugly. The company has never worried much about the appearance of their phones, since they were mainly intended for the construction site. They were instead more concerned about a phone that was almost mil-spec in its...

Review: Motorola i9 Stature

 

Motorola stuffs PTT capabilities into the RAZR2 and calls it the i9. As a communications device, it performs well and looks pretty good at the same time. But does Motorola do enough to extend the i9's veneer beyond the surface?

Phone Scoop takes Boost Mobile's newest (and thinnest) iDEN phone for a quick spin. See how the external screen can access almost all of the phone's features.

Product Specifications

Combining powerful productivity and modern style, the Motorola Stature i9 is perfect for those driven to succeed. Featuring Motorola's exclusive ModeShift Morphing technology, the keys on the outside of the touch-sensitive flip morph and illuminate from one mode to another, lighting up different keys when you make a call, listen to the media player, or capture pictures or video with the 3.1-megapixel camera. Plus, the large external display with touch-sensitive media keys lets you access media, recent calls and more without even opening the flip.
