Please..... In the event of a big disaster, I want emergency crews to have devices that DO NOT NEED the network in order to function. Maybe in these times of consumers wanting flash over function, Nextel can find a niche....

I don't want Notel, they don't even have service in this area (Mendocino County, Northwestern California), nor does Sprint, I'll take "the network" thanks Smile

The nice thing about nextel phones is that most of them come with a service called direct talk so even if the 'Network' was completely down Emergency services could operate small range 6 - 7 mile radiuses to Initiate emergency services.

So do hand radios, but I guess that technology is just too old for anyone to remember...

That wouldn't do much good up here, this county is very rural and rugged, 3800 square miles big too, 6-7 miles isn't worth much in the rural west. The neares Nextel coverage to us is 35 miles south in Clovedale in Sonoma County, they are licensed to serve our area but have never built out, and probably never will.
