Motorola i9 hitting Sprint-Nextel

By: T-Marco October 22nd, 2008

Today FCC just passed the new Motorola i9 or Motorola Cabo for Sprint Nextel. We though that it will be the Motorola i890 but seams to be a just i9.

The new Motorola operates on iDEN and CDMA network from Sprint. Features:

3.1 megapixel with auto focus and 8X digital zoom

Sensitize buttons on the front


GPS with navigation

MP3 player



and Stereo Bluetooth

Stay tuned for more information about my new upgrade… yes!

    i love it, nice for an iden phone

    Simply put, if it was going to be a hybrid, it would be given an “ic” moniker. Instead, it’s merely an “i” meaning iDEN only. This is the first of the fabled Harmony line where Motorola was commissioned by Nextel to make a 4G handset, and Motorola created the idea of an iDEN/WiMAX phone….iDEN for voice and PTT, WiMAX for any and all data applications.

    Now, given what the phone should be capable of, this will be the THINNEST iDEN phone ever. It will have 2 large screens (the external one being a large touch screen), and a pretty decent camera (to say the least). We’ll have to wait and see just how soon this phone gets released…and if it will indeed use WiMAX for data.

    But to those that claim it’s ugly…I suppose those are the same people that think that the LG Lotus is sexy. UGH!

    i wish Motorola would get the memo that the RAZR is dead. too bad it’s still the hottest selling phone according to the NPD. quite amazing that the design has lasted this long with that kind of popularity, but damn… i wish Motorola would start innovating.

    i’m keeping my fingers crossed for their upcoming Android powered device, but something tells me it’ll just be a Q9 smartphone with Android loaded on it.

  7. T-Marco on January 12th, 2009 5:31 pm

    yes, u need to buy it in USA, and unlock it using probably some service on ebay.. for only 10 bucks they can unlock the phone or u can buy the phone already unlocked on ebay too. but this phone is not yet on the market..

  9. David on February 5th, 2009 9:40 am

    To the guy wanting to know about unlocking the phone. There is a website called that i have used and they e-mail the unlock code usually within an hour or 2. The prices are reasonable and i have never had a problem with them.

  11. jesse on March 11th, 2009 10:51 pm

    I finally switched from sprint to boost, i cant belive i got raped as long as i did by sprint. I had the ic902 from sprint and the camera was very good, why does my new i9 have such a blue tinted picture with not very good pixels, for being a 3.2 mega pixel, it sure does suck compare to my ic902 with just the 2 mega pixels. or is this phone have something faulty wrong with it. let me know guys, thanks

  12. Kelly on March 16th, 2009 7:55 pm

    Did you make sure to remove all of the protective films off of the camera lens?

  13. mitch on March 16th, 2009 9:13 pm

    for the person complaining about the picture quality (jesse)…..i just got the new i9 and i was wondering the same thing …if you havent yet take the back of the phone off….then strip off the little blue sticker protecting the lense…there is also one on the flash….be sure to peel that off as well

  14. jeyoliv on March 22nd, 2009 12:57 am

  15. Tom on August 22nd, 2009 11:27 am

    I bet no one will like! Why? It looks like the same design as the Stature! Another low DC volume flop!
    Is Motorola trying to tame it’s image that potty mouths have tainted by turning down the volume on all it’s phones??? Stay tuned we will see….

  16. amanda on September 6th, 2009 9:52 pm

    i have that phone and i love it

  17. CellPhoneSignal on September 7th, 2009 12:43 am

    Sounds great! How recently did you pick up this device?

  18. eulien on September 24th, 2009 12:01 am

    I'm pretty sure that it is the same thing as the Stature… the full name of this phone is the Motorola i9 Stature. Don't bite my head off if I'm wrong, but from what I've read, they are the same thing. I just ordered one in red from Boost, I hear complaints about text messaging on the iDEN network, so we'll see how that works out, I guess… any reassurances to make me feel better?

  19. Tom on November 3rd, 2009 3:04 am

    I was right it’s the same problem child I thought was a hybrid only to find out it has a small speaker at the bottom that I had to hold close to my ear to hear! I took it back with a grin.
    Trust me I could not drive a big rig over 10 years with bad ears.
    I think Motorola is trying to squeeze all these electronic circuits into a small space and down sizing the speaker too and it just won’t work.
    Next time ya in a Sprint store try the little yellow Nextel phone and then try the i9 and get back to me and tell me what you hear.

  20. carta r4i on November 23rd, 2009 7:46 am

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

  21. Gabrielle on December 1st, 2009 8:57 pm

    I have this phone….. :| It was my replacement for the i880 that broke. It's an ok fone but I'm the kind of person that sends 3,000+ text messages a month. Not a good phone for texting @ ALLL!!!!! I hate it because 1st off Sprints service sucks anyways. Then my messages hav to download!!!! Then sometimes it doesn't send so I have to do a master reset and i hate it. The phone itself is soooo big and blugy like I can barley fit it in my pocket . I have a case for it and that just makes it worse! I woodnt reccomend this phone!!! :| |||||| I want 2 switch 2 VERIZON NOW!!!!!! GOODNESSS.

  22. Gabby!!!!! (: on December 1st, 2009 8:59 pm

    oh yeah after a while i guess the buttons have a clear plastic protector thing and my buttons are starting to peel and it looks ridiculous! And the vibrate is soooooooooo LOUD!!!!!! It like scares me sometimes. :(

  23. Gabby on December 1st, 2009 9:02 pm

    ummm… I guess sometimes it works okay for txt messaging but idk wat else 2 say good about this phone….. :|

  24. Katy on December 1st, 2009 9:24 pm

    I've had mine for a few months now, I have it in red from Boost mobile. The top is plastic, so the corners are a little chipped up, but I really like the outside screen functions, such as the camera and the ability to call people on speaker without having to open the phone. One thing I do like is that it has a good solid feel to it, it's not at all flimsy or cheap feeling. The back is rubberized metal, which I like because it doesn't slide around in a car or resting on your leg. I kind of like the smooth keypad, my thumbs can go from button to button faster. I have had no problems with the iDEN network, in fact at football games, where no body's texts are getting out because of all the cell phones in the area, mine zips them out just as usual, it's like my phone operates in a different dimension! I have had a few problems sending people pictures, but it's only with people on Alltell. The size surprised me at first, I didn't really like how much bigger it was then my previous phone (a motorola flip from TracFone) but I've gotten used to it, it fits fine in my pocket and in my Vera Bradley wallet with the cell phone pocket. I like the lighting features and effects on the keypad, and also the time display when the phone is closed. Overall, I like my phone, and with the unlimited $50 plan from Boost, I'm happy with it : )

    Amusing, totally free games for a calmer car tour..Long car rides with bored small children on the back seats can be miserable for anyone. Why not give these good old school family games a go? We’ve all had the experience. You haven’t packed enough kids toys for the long auto journey ahead, the youngsters have suddenly got sick and tired of the whole thing and the iPad’s battery has just died. But don’t lose hope! You don’t need anything at all to enjoy a few rounds of fun quizzes and games. Anyone could get involved and you might even take advantage of a brain-boosting memory game or two.

    It is very interesting to note that the majority of
    these perpetrators, despite being “popular” music instructors, did not even perform
    themselves. For additional information regarding the various services we offer please refer to our
