i730 backup battery bad

I just received a new i730 today to replace one that could not maintain a connection. On the new i730, a screen came up saying; "Replace backup battery at service center". I called Nextel, they are sending me another i730 to replace the one I got today! I can't complain about the customer service, it's great, but has anyone had this backup battery issue?

Verizon Wireless says it sees crime in Nextel swap
Tuesday June 29, 2:44 pm ET

WASHINGTON, June 29 (Reuters) - Verizon Wireless has told U.S. communications regulators that assigning airwaves to rival Nextel Communications Inc. (NasdaqNM:NXTL - News) could open them to federal criminal charges, according to a letter the company released on Tuesday.

The Federal Communications Commission is weighing a plan in which Nextel would get airwaves in the 1.9 gigahertz band in exchange for giving up other spectrum, including in the 800 megahertz band where there is interference with public safety communications.

FCC Chairman Michael Powell supports that plan, which also inc...

call clarity

I currently have VZW, but have been looking at switching to Nextel. I recently was able to get a loaner phone from a local Nextel retailer for about 3 days. My main reason for the phone was to check coverage in the area. The coverage was good, but the call quality and clarity were notheing to be desired. I had an i205(not my phone of choice) and it picked up a lot of background noise and was hard to hear with as well as others had trouble hearing me. I want to know if the call clarity was just with that phone or is it with all Nextels? I have heard others say that it is not as clear os VZW.

Switching from Verizon to Nextel

I currently have VZW, have had them since back when it was Bell Atlantic/NYNEX. The only reason I keep them now is because of the employee discount I get. But, since I'll be changing jobs, and my contract will be up, I'm looking at Nextel. My questions are, is the customer service and support good, and what is their phone upgrade policy?

FCC chief backs Nextel plan for airwaves-source
Wednesday June 23, 7:54 pm ET
By Jeremy Pelofsky

WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) - Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell plans to offer to Nextel Communications Inc. (NasdaqNM:NXTL - News) the airwaves the company wants, in order to end interference with public safety communications in another band, a source close to the matter said on Wednesday.

The No. 6 U.S. wireless carrier has proposed moving some of its operations to the 1.9 gigahertz band and giving the FCC some airwaves it holds in the 800 megahertz band for expanded use by public safety organizations.
