AS for Nextel, I also like Cingular Guy live here in Michigan (Detroit Metro area) and I have no problems like he has mentioned.
Mind you not all whireless carriers are 100% and some will be better than others depending on what city you live in but personally I enjoy Nextel service.
I also have T-Mobile but mainly use my Nextel for all of my needs and it has been great.
Direct Connect does sometimes do not connect but its not 50% of the time.
Dropped calls are much less frequent than AT&T, T-Mobile, Cingular,and Verizon that I have noticed.
Many of friends use other carriers and out of all of them...
My boss has a Nextel. Here I would have to agree with Cingular Guy- Direct Connect works about 1/2 the time, and calls never seem to go through.. and when they do... they are dropped.
I use Verizon... and even though I can't highly recommend their Push to Talk at this time, their service is exceptional... and I hardly ever drop a call.
My opinion? Go with Verizon.
Also, Verizon will have more more cost effective local plans compared to Nextel.
Make use of Verizon's 15 day worry free trial period. You cannot go wrong. Get a good quality tri-mode phone. The phone with best RF is Audiovox 9500. But you may want to use the extended battery. You can also try to new Nokia 3589i.
Verizon has many excellent new phones coming for december.
All the best with you pick.
