    This phone is on the verge of losing total support by Motorola and Google. Without an OS update. Which is officially not going to happen.
    We are left sifting through the android market with trial and error downloads and installation failures. Which is not cool.
    Ive owned mine since July and have enjoyed my experience with it and will continue to use it till it or the network dies whichever comes first being I have my phone the way I like it now.
    However I will no longer advocate the sale to this phone until they drop the price dramatically I'm talking prepaid $200.00 max and more importantly fix the issues with the android market.
    This is not how customers are supposed to be treated after dishing out $400.00 of hard earned money for little to no support.
    I couldn't see buying another Motorola product after this experience.

    I think we all feel like suckers. I knew nothing about android phones before i purchased this one and i have learned alot from this experience. I will make sure i know more about the next one i buy. The i1q is supposed to have 2.1 or 2.2 operating system. I just hope my service provider gets this phone. The i1 is still way better than the old iden phone i had.
