Verizon Plans are CHEAPER than the Nextel plans. and here is a comparison of each company's plans:
(Based from my zip code 37115)
$59.99 400 Anytime Minutes, 0 N&W Minutes, 0 Mobile 2 Mobile Minutes, LD, & Unlimited Direct Connect.
$69.99 600 Anytime Minutes, 0 N&W Minutes, 0 Mobile 2 Mobile Minutes, LD, & Unlimited Direct Connect.
$89.99 800 Anytime Minutes, 0 N&W Minutes, 0 Mobile 2 Mobile Minutes, LD, & Unlimited Direct Connect.
$119.99 1100 Anytime Minutes, 0 N&W Minutes, 0 Mobile 2 Mobile Minutes, LD, & Unlimited Direct Connect.
$59.99 400 Anytime Minutes, Unlimited N&W Minutes, 1000 Mobile 2 Mobile Minutes...
$39.99 400 Anytime minutes, 1,000 M2M, Unlimited Nights & Weekends...
and so on....
PTT is coming along.. slowly.. and so are the better business rates... now its 6% discount on 5+ lines.
I saw the Samsung A690 last night.. it looks good... nice color, size, ect. It seems durable too.

Comapred to Verizon's PTT Plans.
What you are talking about are the THREE choices WITHOUT free incoming and WITHOUT Nationwide LD.
$39.99 500 Anytime Minutes, Unlimited Nights & Weekends, $0.20 Lond Distance, Unlimited Local Direct Connect.
$49.99 500 Anytime Minutes, Unlimited Nights & Weekends, $0.20 Lond Distance, Unlimited Nationwide Direct Connect.
$59.99 1000 Anytime Minutes, Unlimited Nights & Weekends, $0.20 Lond Distance, Unlimited Nationwide Direct Connect.
They may LOOK a little better in Minutes when it comes to the 1000 Anytime minutes for $59.99, but Remember.. LONG DISTANCE IS $0.20 a MINUTE!!
Verizon has FREE NATIONWIDE Long Distance on ALL plans! Plus Veri...
There is a slight delay, but keep in mind that Nextel uses an old Military RADIO band. This is why the quality sounds like a radio. Verizon Wireless is using an IP server to relay the PTT feature. The delay is minimal (measured in milli-seconds) and is being lowered in due time. The quality is second to none.
Old Military Radio band?? Sorry but you are incorrect. The 800 MHz spectrum has never been used by the military and has always been in use use by Public Safety, CMRS (NEXTEL & Southern Link & others) and private companies for their own internal communications.
NEXTEL is using a modified Motorola 2 way radio SMR technology that is very close to the 2-way radio technology that Publi...
