NEW YORK, April 28 (Reuters) - Nextel Communications Inc. (NasdaqNM:NXTL - News) said on Wednesday it has begun testing a more flexible way of charging for its mobile phone services with an aim to keep existing customers and attract new subscribers.

This option means that talkative customers would pay a set amount extra if they go over the agreed minutes and avoid the unpredictab...

Nokia's technology differs from the PoC proposal backed by Ericsson, Motorola and Siemens. The OMA standards grou...

Nextel Communications wants its popular walkie-talkie cell phone feature to work when a wireless network isn't available, a move that could give it a leg up on carriers that offer similar so-called push-to-talk technology.
At an investor conference Wednesday, Nextel Chief Executive Tim Donahue described the new service as an "off-network push to talk" with a much shorter range than the company's current nationwide DirectConnect push-to-talk service.
Nextel equipment supplier Motorola developed the technology for the new service, which relie...
