Motorola Clutch i465 review


If you like Nextel's features, but can't afford the services plans, you'd be wise to consider Boost Mobile . Sort of a Sprint Nextel younger brother, Boost offers similar phones and services at a cheaper price. And now with the new Motorola Clutch...

The Motorola Clutch has a compact design with a comfortable keyboard. Call quality is excellent.

The Motorola Clutch has a low-resolution display and a clunky interface. It does not support instant messaging.

Boost Mobile scores with its first messaging phone. The Motorola Clutch offers good performance and an easy-to-use design.

Motorola Clutch i465 Review


Just a few years ago we had left Sprint's iDEN service for dead, but under newish CEO Dan Hesse the maligned service has had a revitalization of sorts. It started slow, with the basic but functional i576 and i776. These new devices were smaller than...

Rugged push-to-talk handset for Boost Mobile and Nextel


Boost Mobile's Motorola Clutch i465 (*Est. $100 with no contract) breaks new ground as the carrier's first push-to-talk phone (PTT) with a full QWERTY keyboard. Reviewers agree that these features, combined with Boost Mobile's low-cost monthly...

Lightweight, compact, responsive QWERTY keyboard, business-friendly push-to-talk feature , rugged military-certified design

Confusing interface, no instant messaging, spotty reception, mediocre camera

Video Tour: Motorola i465 Clutch


Motorola kicks out a low-cost texter for Boost Mobile. The i465 Clutch has a QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, a camera and decent looks to boot. It is hampered only by flimsy software.

Affordable Cell Phone


Late last year, I purchased the Motorola Clutch i465 Cell Phone as part of the Boost Mobile phone plan, which is Pay-As-You-Go. The price was $79.99 from Best Buy. So far, I have to say that it was the best choice I had ever made. I think that this is...

The phone is very affordable, simple, and easy to use. Has great text messaging features

The photo quality: not great. The buttons: are challenging to use

Not bad for the money


I don't know what everyone means about it being a smart phone, I never once got that message. The phone cost <$100, I knew not to expect too much, but for the $ I am impressed. Now the first one I got did croak in like 2 weeks, but it was replaced...
