    The inside screen is up/side down when you open the flip. Works fine just hard to adjust and set.

    i have the same issue my exterior screen is a blank white and my inside screen started to flip upside down and then it went permanently upside down and now my phone is starting to re boot right after i make or receive calls and am having serious connectivity issues for regular calls and direct connect

    A few weeks ago, I opened my phone and the display info was upside down. It fixed itself when I closed it and reoped it. Now, sadly it is stuck upside down. Is there any way to fix this? It is so hard to use this way.

    Oh NOOOOOOOOOO. My i880 just started doing the same thing! I googled "I880 display upside down" and found this thread. It's driving me nuts. I hope someone has a solution other than to buy a new Nextel phone.

    my i880 is showing no screen then i **** with the screen and it shows everything upside down then the phones screen goes blank but nothing is wrong with the caller id screen on front of the phone

    My screen just flipped. Exact same problem as other users. Any solutions out there? 

  • Anonymous Oct 06, 2008

    I have the same problem - on Oct. 4th, 2008 when I flip open my i880 phone the inside display is upside down. I think a programmer is having some fun and coded this phones to do this just so we'll have to spend more money to have them repaired or replaced. This is BS.

    WTF???

  • bargainholic Jan 01, 2009

    My problem is very similar, but the outer screen is fine. All the functions seem to work fine, except the inside screen is upside down. Motorola told me it would cost more to fix it than to buy a newer phone.

  • dennishowell Jan 11, 2009

    Not once, but twice! This the second I 880 i have had. Screen flipped upside down on both of them. Now my screen is white, unless i open it about a quarter of the way, then it's still upside down. Motorola is responsible 4 this! Will they make it good?

  • lja88ta Jan 13, 2009

    I have the same problem outside is fine. outside is fine inside is upside down. it seem like all the post i have read started in Dec. and Jan. I think sprint is up to something. ;) lol

  • farone Jan 21, 2009

    My screen is also flipped upside down. When close all apprears normal but when open everything is upside down. All functions seem to work fine but difficult to use like this. What's the fix?

  • Anonymous Jan 28, 2009

    Yep! Same thing... I thought it was a practical joke or something...

    haha, this phone is ****. my camera does not work, the screen appears upside down. and i have had the phone for two months.

  • oyoque84 Feb 10, 2009

    my phone is upside down and i dont know what to do

  • workingmom14 Feb 20, 2009

    Mine external screen is white and my internal is upside down. And it just keeps getting better...now you can't hear a caller unless they are on speaker. Motorola does have a 1 year warranty on this phone thank god mine is only 6 months old. I really wish I didn't extend my contract to get this phone!!!

    I had the same problem. The phone was less then a month old. After fighting with NEXTEL for 2 weeks I still had to pay 50 to get a replacement and then they tried to replace it with a refurbished. As soon as this contract with them is over we are going to another company.

If I press the flip button and just let the phone open on its on (fast) it will be upside down.  However, if I press the flip button with my hand on the screen part of the phone and slowly let the phone open, it opens in the correct orientation.   Still not good but should help until you can get it fixed or replaced.

Please, I cannot believe all the garbage that people are being fed.... This phone along with the Nextel i885 which has a very similar flex cable are known to have this problem on a very regular basis. The problem itself is the flex cable. It has nothing to do with either the LCD screen or the mainboard.

If you are within the warranty period you can request a warranty fix just by calling motorola. The only cost would be to ship them the phone which if you use USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation done online it would cost just about $5.00 If you do not have an ungly old phone laying around that you can use on the mean time I would recomend you go to the retailer where you got the phone and maybe ask them for a loaner or study other possible avenues.

If you are unlucky enough that your warranty already expired, the part itself costs me about $6.00 plus shipping because I buy quantity but the same place where I buy mine sells it for $6.75 + shipping for only one. The trouble is the installation which is not easy for the average joe. For the experienced technician it should be a $20.00 job (you take the part or expect to pay a whole lot more) or at the most $30.00 for the labor (I think $20.00 is more than enough for a 6-10 minute job). I really do not recomend the average joe with little experience to do this one as it has one major problem which is taking out the hinge of the phone. If you can get it done for $20.00 pay them. However, the bad news......... there is nothing guaranteing that you will not have the same problem again. It is not uncommon for this to happen again in a few months, but sometimes it just takes a few weeks and I have seen it happening again in days......
So, it is up to you if you want to do it or not, I think overall it is a decent phone with nice features but with a price to pay for it.

I talked with a motorola rep and they told me that it should be covered for free no matter if its out of warranty due to the fact they knew it was the display cable and a sensor in the phone is wearing out. Our company has 7 of these and so far 3 have been fixed for free.... I would get a hold of motorola or there closest rep...

This is a known board level defect. There currently is not a fix for this problem other than swapping out to a new phone. Sometimes replacing the flip/front housing assembly will temporarily solve the issue but usually within a couple weeks the board will corrupt the LCD. The only real solution at this time is to replace the phone. A certified Nextel repair center should be able to do this for you free of charge.

Mine is upsidown to can't you file some kind of lawsuit when everyone is getting f*ck*d.

Posted on Oct 11, 2008

Take it 2 your local retailer and they should be able to fix it,by replacing the screen,but this will run you about $100,thats what it cost me.............

Posted on Oct 02, 2008

Same thing happend to mine its going to cost you a shitload unless you still have your warranty. These i880's are truly garbage I have many friends who have had this phone and had the same problems.
