    Does it have a key pad

    The i1 runs the Android 1.5 firmware and Motorola has indicated that they will not be making an upgrade to this OS available on this phone. If you have specialty apps that you want to run on your phone, check with your app provider to see if they are supported by version 1.5. I didn’t check, and now I have a $399 phone that doesn’t do what I want it to.

    Ain’t that the truth I spent $350 on a phone that im having a hard time getting flash player (most sites run by F.P). You tube won’t play without an additional app. I wish the store could have told me that before I bought it. They probably didn’t know themselves just wanted the sales I suppose. But anyway just a few months later they have a bunch of up grades that works beautifully and im stuck with almost a $400 dollar phone that doesn’t do what I want it to! I could have kept my boost mobile sanyo which did at least did some things I like than this. What a world what a World.

    I have spent numerous hours on the phone with Boost and I am quite frustrated that I have a very expensive phone I can no longer use for the purposes I bought it for. They told me I needed to buy a new phone if I wanted the android system. My phone is not even a year old yet!!!
