As with any carrier there are going to be spots where reception isn't what you would like it to be.

That being said, my Nextel experience has been the absolute best cell phone experience. I've been on AT&T, Alltel, T-Mobile, Verizon (5 differnet phones), Nextel and now my wife is on Cingular, so I also carry a phone on her Cingular plan, so we can talk for free. She still calls me on the Nextl about half the time because I get better reception in the data center on the Nextel than any other phone I've owned.

Now on to the phone. It's a phone, that's all I want it to be (plus some decent address book functions - which it has). I want a solid phone that provides good reception and durability. And that's what I've got with the i205.

The address book will store multiple numbers per contact - something my co-workers bemoan the lack of in their phones (even Moto) from other carriers. I have used the text features to gradualy replace my pager, and find it to be reasonable. The only feature I would really like is Bluetooth.

The speakerphone is also very loud and clear on both ends, as is the normal in-call use.

Sure I occasionally long for a Treo, or a phone with a color screen, or a camera, or some other feature that I lack. But when I pickup those phones at one of the stores and play with it for a couple of minutes, I really appreciate the simplicity and reliability of my i205.

PROS: Solid, reliable phone, great call quality

CONS: No Bluetooth (a minor lack)
