Is Nextel worth switching to?


Jul 27, 2008, 8:39 AM
I'm looking to switch carriers. I had nextel before sprint bought them out and LOVED IT!! I ported out soon after sprint's purchase. I'm wondering if the quality of nextel's voice service is as good as it was before sprint's take over or has it diminished?

do yourself the favor and get the hpptt series

ndc on sprint or whatever it's called you get the calling area and the dc coverage in most area nextel dc works

personally i recommend the sany pro 700 or the lg 400 depending on your sylistic preferences

How's the voice connections? Before the merger, I truly loved nextel's service. Has it remained the same, gotten better, or worse?

It really depends why you are going back to Nextel for. Is it for the push to talk? Well Qchat will be out shortly so you can wait for those.

It just depends where you live.

I have Nextel pre merger and post, and in my area quality has decreased a little bit but then after they realized that IDEN is still there they started to spend more money, the quality increased. In fact, they built out some towers. When I went to NYC pre merger many times Nextel didn’t work that well where I stayed and went, but after and now, it works fine.
