2.0 out of 5 stars Phone is PROBLEMATIC, June 23, 2006
This review is from: MOTOROLA i850 NEXTEL GPS ENABLED IDEN CAMERA CELL PHONE
I have been a Nextel customer for YEARS. In general, I like their service. My last phone went for 3 years and except for wear and tear, never gave me a problem...NOT the case on the i850. For the first 2 months, the phone worked well - I loved it. Only exception is that the battery dies much faster than I am used to. A few weeks ago, the phone randomly began turning itself off. Sometimes it's when it flips shut, other times for no apparent reason. When it does, sometimes you can turn it back on, sometimes you can't. Plug in the charger and you get "invalid battery" or "invalid charger". I took it in for service, got a new battery and 2 days later...here we go again. I probably wouldn't mind if this was the $40 phone I bought my son - not the almost $300 phone I bought myself. I've googled the problem and it seems to be VERY common...and replacement phones are giving the same errors. I'm debating asking for a full refund and going back to my i730 which was just a great little work horse. Totally unacceptable to have so many problems in this price range.
