Two months of Sprint Nextel service (my experience)
(I use the Motorola i365 and I love it because people think I am carrying around a cordless phone, to which I laugh and reply, no it's a cellular phone!)
Signal/Reception: Honestly, I think the signal quality and voice quality of iDEN is very decent. There were a couple of times I had dropped calls, but my apartment doesn't get good cellular reception period regardless of carrier (I had many different carriers too). I really like iDEN, it's a good network.
Texting: I text occasionally, and the only downer is you have to wait a few seconds for it to download to the phone, but this is a minor con.
Customer service: Outstanding. I have had nothing but gr...
Verizon has some neat PTT phones but Nextel has been at this for a long time. I understand the phone quality is pretty good with Nextel phones, but what about PTT? Has anyone used both iDEN PTT and cellular 3G PTT? If so, what is your opinion on which is better? How do they compare, be detailed if you want.
I thought about adding a line to my existing Verizon family plan which would only be about $10/month. But I was just curious about Nextel's PTT service. I know I don't need to have a PTT phone...

(Rumored) Touchscreen Android device coming to Nextel
From what I've heard, it's to have a 3.1-inch touchscreen, WiFi enabled, 5.0 megapixel camera, and is to be certified military spec for dust, shock, vibration, etc.
Not sure how well it will do, as it is not expected to be WiMAX enabled, and will rely on WiFi for any real internet connection screen. Seems like this might hinder the Android's capabilities, but we will see.

Simple Solution for Nextel Users Concerned About No Roaming
I just joined Sprint on the Nextel side.
Plus, I found out I got a 22% discount with my employer, which is far better than that of AT&T.
So far I am amazed by the difference in call quality. I know Sprint Nextel gets a bad rap, but honestly, I get great service.
EVDO And/Or WIMAX On iDen Devices
Derizon now will charge $35.00 to TRY a phone from their horrible network.
If your service was so great you wouldn't be losing money on people trying phones you would win them over after a couple of days trial. Apparently what they do know is marketing, just a bunch of smoke and mirrors on their TV ad's but when push comes to shove they are LOSING money because they have to charge $35.00 to try a phone.
So they must not be the BEST as they claim, if you were the BEST then you wouldn't need the $35.00 trial fee.
Can I get an AMEN!!!
