Well I have to concede that I mis-spoke and errored in my suggestion. Thanks for clearing that up for me!
Now unfortunately I have to disagree with you about the alleged limitations of our billing system.... We have the ability to enable both Three way and call waiting in the current billing system but we don't support the feature because there is no way to bill for two lines of service at the same time. The pre-paid premise bills for one PTN and would require a second account to cover the cost of a secondary line, and I don't care how you dice it , 3-way and call waiting requires a second "line" or the ability to carry information on one line why you talk on the other...semantics!
You are right about the second line of service but for ease of explanation I have simplified...but you sure called me on that!

Now to address your other muscle flexing...Direct talk is not a free service and all the talk about "code plugs" aside we do not support that option with Boostmobile! There are a few Nextel handsets with the feature on it and I believe it requires a special biliing code to allow you the pleasure of using this feature and Nextel offers it for for the i325 and I believe the i930. But perhaps in the future...
"unlocking" the feature remotely for the voice record ...what the hell are you talking about? These features are availible as an application that you purchase from our web site...if you mean that when they purchase the application and download it to the handset it works, then you are correct, but I get frustrated with terms like locking and unlocking!!!
You can also purchase the Speakerphone application for the i215 and i205 for 20.00 at

And as far as group DC goes you are implying that individuals can't set up a group to use there DC feature...Nextel has lots of small groups that set up group connect at to enjoy connecting with teammates, and family, as well as small business.
But with Boost you are correct, it is a billing issue, the same as all of the above issues...Call waiting, 3-way, Direct Talk, and Group some point it would be great to support everything that Nextel has to offer but that kind of defeats the purpose of seperate entities, don't you think?
