Just yesterday, my wife and I received our i1000 Plus phones. We got them for $30 apiece, with a one year contractural agreement. This is the fourth cell-phone that we have had, and I can honestly say that it is by far the absolute best. I have heard of many complaints registered against the flip-lids which had been broken off from the body of the phone. Now, I have seen many flip-phone owners answer (and close) their phones in a manner best befitting Captain James T. Kirk (remember him? the Enterprise's head honcho?), and - though I don't dare suggest that this has always been the case - it could very well be that such handling of these phones may have been what caused breakage of those already flimsy lids. I never give my lid a thumbshot but, rather, will use both hands when opening and closing the lid. If breakage is to be the case with mine also, at least I will know that it wasn't brought on by anything that I did - or shouldn't have done.
I know that the cost of service, on the Nextel setup, is indeed high, but this phone (to my wife and I) is worth it. The two-way radio, direct connect, and speakerphone features - coupled to the fact that these phones are reputed to have a far lower RFA rating than most cell phones - are what drove us to them. The earpiece volume could be stepped up a few decibels, at least to the point where you don't have to oftentimes ask the party on the other end to repeat what was said.
All in all, though, this is truly a VERY nice phone.
